Black Lives Matter

New York: A massive, yellow “Black Lives Matter” mural was painted on New York City’s Fifth Avenue right in front of the Trump Tower, a skyscraper that serves as the headquarters for the Trump Organization.

Mayor Bill de Blasio joined dozens of people in painting the three words with a roller on the ground on Thursday morning, attracting hundreds of onlookers, reports Xinhua news agency.

“Our city isn’t just painting the words on Fifth Avenue. We’re committed to the meaning of the message,” he said on Twitter.

Last week, President Donald Trump lashed out at New York City’s plan to paint the mural, calling it “a symbol of hate” on Twitter.

In response to Trump’s tweet, de Blasio said the mural was to honour members of the African-American community who helped build Fifth Avenue and “so much of this nation”.

The mural is one of five that will be created in each borough of the city following the police custody death of African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25, which sparked nationwide protests over racial injustice and police brutality.

“I ask all New Yorkers to recognize the power of this moment — that the city of New York is saying loudly, clearly, consistently black lives matter and we will back up that belief with action after action after action,” de Blasio had said last month while announcing the plan about the murals.

New Delhi: Nepal has banned all Indian news channels, except DD News, for alleged propaganda against the country.

Reports say that Nepal cable operators have stopped getting signals of Indian news channels.

Nepal government spokesperson Yuvaraj Khatiwada said: “We request all not to disseminate news that infringes sovereignty and self-respect of Nepalis. This includes the media of neighbouring countries. We might seek both political and legal remedies.”

Earlier, Nepal has amended its map which shows some Indian territory as part of it.

Nepal’s parliament on June 13 adopted unanimously the Constitution Amendment Bill, paving the way for accommodating the updated political-administrative map, which includes Indian areas of Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura, in its symbol.

Pakistan court issues notices to US embassy

Islamabad: A civil court Lahore has issued notices to the US Embassy in Pakistan and others on a $20 billion damages suit filed by a citizen over the spread of COVID-19, a lawyer said on Thursday.

A senior advocate from Lahore Waseem Yusuf Khan, who witnessed the court proceedings, told Xinhua news agency that the plaintiff named Raza Ali, who recovered from COVID-19 recently, alleged in his suit on Wednesday that the US was solely responsible for the unchecked spread of the virus which incurred losses on him, his family and the country, reports Xinhua news agency.

The plaintiff has also made US Consul General in Lahore, the Secretary of Defense through the consul general defendants in his petition, saying that his family members were suffering and their health was compromised.

He alleged that the virus was spread in the world because the defendants failed to fulfil their duties to the international community and put billions of human lives in danger.

According to the Ali, the unrestricted spread of the virus in the US and stance of the country’s leadership became the basic cause for the spread of the virus all over the world, including Pakistan.

“The defendants are responsible for the colossal death toll, misery, and economic disasters they inflicted on the world, including but not limited to entire Pakistan,” said the petition, adding that the US administration has been generating hurdles before international unity and global strategy to fight COVID-19.

The civil judge of the court issued notices to the respondents and asked them to appear before the court on August .

According to local media reports, the court has also sought a legal opinion to stop the US Consul General from leaving Pakistan until the decision of the petition.

undeclared North Korean facility

Washington/Seoul: New satellite imagery has revealed a previously undeclared North Korean facility that experts suspect could be used to build nuclear warheads, a media report said on Thursday.

The images, captured by Planet Labs and analyzed by experts at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, show an active facility in the village of Wollo-ri near Pyongyang, the Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency quoted the CNN report as saying.

“It has all the signatures of a North Korean nuclear facility — security perimeter, on-site housing, monuments to unpublicized leadership visits, and an underground facility. And it sits right next to a bottled water factory that has none of those characteristics,” Jeffrey Lewis, a professor at the institute, was quoted as saying in the report.

“The big thing that sticks out is all the vehicle traffic — cars, trucks, shipping containers. This factory is very active. That activity has not slowed down — not during negotiations and not now. It’s still making nuclear weapons.”

The CNN report said the facility was identified in 2015 by researchers at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, but Lewis and his fellow researchers chose not to publicize it because they could not determine its role in North Korea’s nuclear program.

Nuclear negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang have stalled, with the two sides wide apart on the scope of North Korea’s denuclearization and sanctions relief from the US, said the Yonhap News Agency report.

Meanwhile, South Korea’s Defence Ministry refused to confirm the CNN report but said it was “closely monitoring related activities in close coordination with the US intelligence authorities”.

According to military sources, there are presumed to be “many more” unknown facilities in North Korea suspected to be linked to nuclear and missile activities, and those in the Wollo-ri area do not appear to have been a key base for its development or production of nuclear weapons at least until now, Yonhap added.

Donald Trump Jr's girlfriend reveals being asymptomatic

Washington: Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr. and a top fundraiser for the US President re-election campaign, revealed that she was “asymptomatic” after she tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

On Wednesday, Guilfoyle told the Trump campaign’s online show “The Right View” that “I’m doing my best and following my doctor’s orders”, The Hill news website reported.

“So far I am asymptomatic and have been feeling really pretty good,” she added.

Guilfoyle, who is the national chairwoman of the Trump Victory Finance Committee and a campaign adviser, added that the President had reached out to her after she tested positive last week.

“I believe in President Donald Trump… He called right away to check in on me, and to make sure that I was doing okay and had everything that I needed, and I know personally that the President is doing everything he possibly can for all American families and to usher along a vaccine while balancing the safe reopening of America,” Guilfoyle was quoted as saying by The Hill news website.

Guilfoyle tested positive in South Dakota last week before she was set to attend the President’s Independence Day event at Mount Rushmore on July 3.

Trump Jr. tested negative for the virus following Guilfoyle’s diagnosis and the two did not come into contact with the President, it was reported.

Guilfoyle, a former Fox News personality who now works for the Trump campaign, is the latest person close to the President to test positive for coronavirus.

In May, a member of the US military who worked in the White House tested positive for the virus.

Days later, Katie Miller, Vice President Mike Pence’s spokeswoman, also tested positive.

coronavirus has existed worldwide before emerging in China

New Delhi. The World Health Organization (WHO) is considering that that coronavirus is spreading through the air. Maria Van Kerkhov, technical lead of the WHO, said that we cannot rule out the possibility of airborne transmission and aerosol transmission. The WHO previously stated that the infection spreads through the nose and mouth. In addition, it also transmits by touching the infected surface.

At the press conference in Geneva, WHO officer Benedetta Allengranzi said that there is evidence of Corona spreading through the air, but for now we will take time to reach the result. He said that the possibility of spreading Corona infection by air in public places cannot be ruled out. Especially in places where there is a lot of crowd or some place is closed. Or a place where the air is not moving properly.

Recently, 239 scientists from 32 countries claimed that the corona could be spread by air.

He wrote to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), requesting them to look into these claims and change the guidelines.

These scientists have quoted from their research that small particles of Novel Coronavirus that is Sars COV-2 remain in the air for many hours and they can also infect people.

In this whole case, while people are taking a beating on WHO, this apex organization says that coronavirus can spread not from air but aerosols and droplets smaller than 5 microns. (One micron is equal to one millionth of a meter.)

Even if the wind does not move, the corona particles spread up to 13 feet.

Experts from all over the world are advising to maintain a 6 feet radius for social distancing. Teams of Indian and American researchers say that corona particles can travel 8 to 13 feet without moving air. According to the researchers, at 50 percent humidity and 29 degree temperature, corona particles can also dissolve in the air.

China is 'greatest threat' to US

Washington: Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray has said that acts of espionage and theft by China’s government pose the “greatest long-term threat” to the future of the US.

Speaking to the Hudson Institute in Washington, Wray described a multi-pronged disruption campaign. the BBC reported on Wednesday.

He said China had begun targeting Chinese nationals living abroad, coercing their return, and was working to compromise US coronavirus research.

“The stakes could not be higher,” Wray said, adding: “China is engaged in a whole-of-state effort to become the world’s only superpower by any means necessary,” he added.

In a nearly hour-long speech on Tuesday, the FBI Director outlined a stark picture of Chinese interference, a far-reaching campaign of economic espionage, data and monetary theft and illegal political activities, using bribery and blackmail to influence US policy.

“We’ve now reached a point where the FBI is now opening a new China-related counterintelligence case every 10 hours,” Wray said. “Of the nearly 5,000 active counterintelligence cases currently underway across the country, almost half are related to China.”

He said that Chinese President Xi Jinping had spearheaded a programme called “Fox Hunt”, geared at Chinese nationals living abroad seen as threats to the Chinese government.

“We’re talking about political rivals, dissidents, and critics seeking to expose China’s extensive human rights violations,” he said. “The Chinese government wants to force them to return to China, and China’s tactics to accomplish that are shocking.”

He continued: “When it couldn’t locate one Fox Hunt target, the Chinese government sent an emissary to visit the target’s family here in the United States. The message they said to pass on? The target had two options: return to China promptly, or commit suicide.”

This is not the first time FBI Director Christopher Wray categorised China as a “top intelligence threat” for the US, but on Tuesday he ramped up the criticism by focussing on Beijing’s “whole-of-state effort” to become the world’s only superpower.

It clearly signals that Washington now sees Beijing not only as an aggressive adversary, but also an ambitious contender for global leadership.

Since the Covid-19 outbreak in the US, the Donald Trump administration has unleashed anger over China from its initial response to coronavirus, economic espionage to Hong Kong’s new national security law.

Wray’s remarks are among a series of hard-hitting speeches by senior US officials on the topic.

The Trump administration says it’s now time to wake up from the 40 years of policy failures with regard to China, while critics see this as an attempt to deflect attention from the president own failures in office and to increase his chances of winning re-election.
