Heavy Russian losses in the east



Ukraine’s military is continuing with its fierce attacks in the eastern Donetsk region, leaving Russia battered and bruised

It comes as President Zelensky flags the possibility of further assaults by Moscow on his nation’s energy infrastructure.

In Kyiv, the mayor says residents should be prepared to flee if the city goes dark.

According to Zelensky’s nightly address, he warned that Russia may be concentrating its forces for renewed attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

His warning comes as the nine-month war may be entering a period of stalemate as winter weather sets in. Ukrainian forces in the southern front have been tightening their grip on the Russian-held city of Kherson, but so far have not been able to advance into that city.

Following a series of military setbacks, Russian forces have increasingly targeted Ukrainian civilian infrastructure, bombarding power plants that provide electricity and heat ahead of winter.

Over the weekend the Washington Post reported that the United States is privately encouraging Kyiv to signal an openness to negotiate with Moscow.

Citing unnamed sources, the newspaper said that the message from American officials was not aimed at pushing Ukraine toward the negotiating table with the Russian aggressor, but a calculated move: appearing open to peace talks to maintain the support of other nations.

The Post reported U.S. and Ukrainian officials acknowledged that Zelensky’s ban on talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin had generated concern in parts of Europe, Africa and Latin America, where the war’s effect on the cost of food and fuel are felt most sharply.

The White House National Security Council had no immediate comment on the accuracy of the report.

“The United States is going to be with Ukraine for as long as it takes in this fight.”

U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said during a visit to Kyiv last week that Washington’s support for Ukraine would remain “unwavering and unflinching” and laying the blame for the conflict squarely on Putin.

“This war could end very easily. Russia chose to start it, Russia could choose to end it by ceasing its attack on Ukraine, ceasing its occupation of Ukraine and that’s precisely what it should do, from our perspective.”

The United States announced $400 million worth of additional security assistance for Ukraine, including refurbishing tanks from the Czech Republic and missiles for air defences that could be used against Russian drones and cruise missiles.

The new help brought the amount of U.S. military aid sent to Kyiv to more than $18.2 billion since the invasion.

Why Elon Musk was booed on stage



New Twitter boss Elon Musk did not receive the warmest welcome at Dave Chappelle’s recent comedy show

Elon Musk appeared embarrassed at Dave Chappelle’s recent San Francisco comedy show, when the audience began booing him.

A mixed reaction from audience members at the show. Some cheered as Chappelle welcome Musk onto the stage, but it was impossible to notice many booing him.

It’s no surprise though, given San Francisco is the home of Twitter HQ, and the place where Musk just fired thousands of staff.

It comes as the controversial new boss makes drastic changes to the social media platform.

 “Sounds like some of those people you fired are in the audience….

Don’t say nothing. You hear that sound, Elon? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest.”

After trying to joke his way around the awkwardness for Musk, Chappelle finished the show with some words of wisdom and a prayer.

“Booing is not the best thing you can do. I wish everybody in this auditorium the joy of feeling free and may your pursuit of happiness set you free. Amen.”

However, Musk has since responded to the booing from the crowd insisting it “was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods), but, still, that’s a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life (frequent on Twitter).”

Why ‘zombie viruses’ could be the next biggest public threat



A new report reveals the world will see an increase in so-called ‘zombie viruses’ that are emerging beneath us

A new report by scientists at the French National Center for Scientific Research has revealed the global threat of ‘zombie viruses.’ As climate change continues to take effect, the earth is undeniably getter hotter.

Global warming essentially means significant areas of permafrost are now melting. Permafrost is a frozen layer on or under the Earth’s surface, holding beneath it millions of ‘zombie viruses’ not seen in millions of years.

The now melting permafrost means it is lifting the veil on potentially dangerous microbes that human kind isn’t prepared for.

In Siberia, the scientists uncovered a ‘zombie virus’ which they believe is 50,000 years old. This would be the oldest age of a frozen virus returning to life and able to infect.

Researchers are concerned about the global health impact if the earth continues to warm at its current rate.
