    BAll cryptocurrencies in circulation around the world, including dicoins, will be banned in the country immediately. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said this was in line with the recommendations of a high-level committee set up to study cryptocurrencies. Only virtual currencies issued by the government will be allowed to be traded in the country. The Finance Minister was responding to a question at the state level on whether there were any plans to issue stricter orders regarding cryptocurrency trading. The Reserve Bank had earlier banned banks from allowing cryptocurrency related transactions. The Finance Minister made this clear in his 2018-19 budget speech. It was said at the time that cryptocurrencies were not recognized as country-recognized transactions. However, the government brought in the bill after the Supreme Court lifted the ban on cryptocurrency transactions. The Cabinet will soon approve the ban bill. Neither the Reserve Bank nor...

    Russia's FSB security service was behind the poisoning of Alexei Navalny in an operation which was likely approved 'at the highest echelons of the Kremlin', according to an investigative report by Bellingcat.  Navalny was targeted after 'years of surveillance' in which the Putin critic was 'shadowed' by a special FSB unit - who may even have poisoned his wife in an earlier attempt on his life, it is claimed. Three FSB operatives allegedly followed Navalny to the Siberian city of Tomsk, where he fell ill after boarding a plane on August 20 and was taken to hospital unconscious before being airlifted to Germany where he is recovering.  Suspicion fell on Putin after a German lab found evidence of the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok, but the Kremlin denied any involvement.   Bellingcat, which previously named three military intelligence officers as the culprits in the 2018 Sergei Skripal poisoning, also claims that Russian...
    Pfizer submitted to the FDA for emergency approval on November 23. This is how many people have died since then from COVID A Johns Hopkins professor has slammed the FDA for taking so long to review the Pfizer vaccine while thousands of Americans continue to die from COVID.  Pfizer announced in early November that its vaccine was effective after a widespread global trial involving 44,000 volunteers,  It submitted its findings to the FDA for approval on November 23 but has still not been approved. Since then, 34,000 Americans have died from the virus.  Writing for Med Page Today on Thursday, Martin Makary MD said there was no reason for the delay.  'There's a war on, but you'd never know it from the agency's weeks-long review.  'We are in a health emergency. The U.S. will soon exceed 3,000 deaths per day from COVID-19 and in the time that the FDA has been...

    President Barack Obama was briefed in the summer of 2016 about an unverified Russian intelligence analysis which claimed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was then the Democratic presidential nominee, approved an effort to tie candidate Donald Trump to Russia’s hack of the Democratic National Committee, the nation's top spy chief revealed on Tuesday. A one-page letter Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe sent to and released by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said U.S. intelligence agencies obtained in late July 2016 "insight into Russian intelligence analysis alleging that U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and the Russians' hacking of the Democratic National Committee." But, Ratcliffe, stressed, the intelligence community "does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the extent to which...

    Vladimir Putin's coronavirus vaccine was waved through after tests on only 38 people and causes side-effects including pain and swelling, according to official paperwork.    The much-trumpeted Russian drug was registered after just 42 days of research, Fontanka news agency says - and its effectiveness is said to be 'unknown'.  One of the documents submitted for registration says that 'no clinical studies have been conducted to study the epidemiological effectiveness,' despite Putin's claims that the vaccine has passed 'all the necessary tests'.  There are also questions about the vaccine's ability to create sufficient antibodies, after Putin said his own daughter had already developed them after being injected.   Vladimir Putin claims Russia has a coronavirus vaccine and says one of his daughters has already been injected - prompting widespread scepticism A researcher in Russia works with a coronavirus vaccine at the Nikolai Gamaleya National Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology in...

    A federal appeals court on Wednesday reversed a judge's prior order that had shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline pending a full environmental review. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit sided with pipeline owner Energy Transfer to keep the oil flowing, saying a lower-court judge 'did not make the findings necessary for injunctive relief.' But the appellate court declined to grant Energy Transfer's motion to block the review, saying the company had 'failed to make a strong showing of likely success.' The ruling comes as a blow to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, which was at the center of massive protests against the pipeline in 2016 and 2017, based on concerns about the pipeline's impact on drinking water in the region.  The image above shows construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline in Morton County, North Dakota.

    A portion of downtown Tampa's new "Back the Blue" mural.Ray Roa Downtown Tampa has a new “Back The Blue” mural (or “Bock the Blub,” whatever you wanna call it), but the work was finished before the permit was even processed with the City of Tampa. A previous Creative Loafing article cited a "Back The Blue" muralist who posted that the permits had been obtained, but that wasn't entirely true. According to city spokesperson Ashley Bauman, there was an application for a permit to paint the mural, but that application had not completed the approval process. That’s all Bauman would tell CL, but the timing is unfortunate since images of the post might have started to go viral. The work—situated on Madison Street outside the downtown Tampa police headquarters—was almost immediately mocked by street art giant Tristan Eaton, who told his 218,000-plus followers, “Tampa this looks like shit. Leave the art making...

    The Dallas-based Retractable Technologies, Inc. is among the companies that has made use of the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program, obtaining the type of loan designed for businesses that are suffering financial hardship because of the coronavirus pandemic. But according to NBC News reporters Stephanie Ruhle and Jonathan Allen, the $1.4 million loan that Retractable received on April 17 was approved despite the fact that the company (which manufactures syringes) has enjoyed a financial windfall in 2020. Ruhle (known for co-hosting “Velshi & Ruhle” with Ari Velshi on MSNBC) and Allen explain, “In late March, the Department of Health and Human Services began drafting an $83.8 million order for RTI to produce the lion’s share of roughly 330 million needles and syringes for a future COVID-19 mass vaccination campaign. That coincided with private business brisk enough for the company to report a 41.8% increase in first-quarter sales compared with the...
    DENVER (CBS4) – There are more than 13,000 companies in Colorado that received Paycheck Protection Program – or PPP – loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration. According to data released by the SBA, 93 companies in Colorado received between $5 million to $10 million in PPP loans. (credit: CBS) But some of those companies reported retaining 0 jobs, including Fiore and Sons, a contracting company based in Denver, and Lerch Bates, an international elevator consulting company based in Englewood. While those companies didn’t return requests for comment, the SBA says in order to qualify for a PPP loan, companies didn’t need to provide how many employees their loan would help. The SBA also said just because a company is listed as having received a loan doesn’t mean it complied with program rules. Companies will have to provide a number of jobs retained in order to apply for loan forgiveness, the...

    (Bloomberg) – India’s antitrust regulator approved the purchase by Facebook Inc. of a 9.99% stake in billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s controlled digital services unit, giving the social media giant another foothold in one of the fastest growing online markets in the world. The US-based company will invest $ 5.7 billion in Jio Platforms through Jaadhu Holdings LLC, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Facebook, according to a document published on the website of the Indian Competition Commission. The authorization paves the way for a series of smaller deals that take Jio’s parent, Reliance Industries Ltd., closer to its goal of freeing itself from net debt by March 2021, while using its roughly 400 million subscribers to Cordless phones as the cornerstone of an e-commerce and digital services business. Ambani’s $ 65 billion digital unit has sold more than 20% in stakes to buyers like Facebook and US private equity firms KKR...
    Coronavirus — He Emergency Operations Committee (COE), which directs actions to tackle the coronavirus pandemic in Ecuador, disallowed this Tuesday the resumption of the soccer tournament scheduled for July 17 by the Pro League and the clubs. “By means of the present I comply to remind you, Mr. President, that the beginning of any championship in the month of July is not authorized,” announces the letter sent by the COE to Miguel Ángel Loor.

    As TechCrunch explains, that’s against the rules for most apps, with the exception of “reader”apps that can display books or play music and movies, such as Netflix. “Email is not and has never been an exception included in this rule,” Schiller told TC. He also admitted that the iOS app was approved in error — the Mac app was rejected from the get-go — and should never have shipped in the first place. While the Hey email app is still available on the App Store as of this writing, Apple rejected a bug fix the company tried to submit on Monday. The tech giant also rejected Basecamp’s appeal, sending the company a lengthy letter explaining its violations. “The HEY Email app is marketed as an email app on the App Store, but when users download your app, it does not work. Users cannot use the app to access email or...
    The Trump administration signed a bill condemning the existence of concentration camps in China on the same day as alarming accusations surfaced from the book by John Bolton, his former national security advisor. Bolton claimed in his book that it appeared that the president personally approved of the construction of the camps in a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. "At the opening dinner of the Osaka G-20 meeting, with only interpreters present, Xi explained to Trump why he was basically building concentration camps in Xinjiang," Bolton wrote in the controversial book. "According to our interpreter, Trump said that Xi should go ahead with building the camps, which he thought was exactly the right thing to do," he added. Bolton also claims that the president sought China's help in private in the 2020 election. Trump signs bill President Donald...
    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany defended the Trump administration Wednesday after CNN reporter Jim Acosta accused it of gassing and pummeling protesters in Lafayette Park earlier in the week. "You mentioned Dr. [Martin Luther] King," Acosta began during a White House press briefing. "He likely would not have approved of what took place Monday evening across from the White House, as you probably know. If the White House, president, and his team had to do it all over again, would you have gassed and pummeled protesters to clear the park so the president could have a photo op?" Multiple media figures claimed on Monday that Trump tear-gassed peaceful protesters in order to obtain a photo op at St. John's Church, which was burned by protesters Sunday night during demonstrations responding to the deaths of George Floyd and other African-Americans following encounters with police. McEnany denied law enforcement had used tear gas,...
