. 1 Jussie Smollett
It is a phrase that even "Empire" was not possible. All 16 crimes against actor Jussie Smollett, who was alleged to have committed a hate crime against himself, were dropped by Chicago prosecutors. The mayor and the police chief of the city were upset. In addition, Smollett's criminal records were removed and the records of the case sealed, all in return for Smollett's civilian service and the loss of his $ 10,000 bond. The mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, and the police commissioner Eddie Johnson were brisk. They destroyed Smollett and the public prosecutor's office. Emanuel repeatedly called it "the whitewash of justice."
. 2 Vaccinations
If you live in Rockland County, New York, you are under 1
8 years of age and not vaccinated. They are prohibited in public places. This "very unusual" move, perhaps the first of its kind in the nation, is part of the district officials' efforts to address a measles outbreak that began in October. So far, 153 cases have been confirmed in the county north of New York City. Measles are a highly contagious virus that is being prevented with the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, but representatives of the region's health authorities said they had "resisted" people who might need to be vaccinated.
. 3 Israel
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country was "ready to do much more" after meeting Hamas' goals in Gaza. Militants in Gaza shot more than 60 rockets into Israel this week. Israeli forces responded to dozens of air strikes on targets in Gaza. It is the sharpest escalation of violence in Israel since the beginning of the year and comes only a few weeks after rocket fire in central Israel for the first time in nearly five years. Everything seemed to calm down last night, at least temporarily. A senior Hamas official told CNN that Hamas wanted to reach a long-term ceasefire agreement for the Gaza Strip with the hope of easing the blockade of Israel, severely curtailing Gazans' shuttling of coastlines and control of goods entry.
. 4 Boeing 737 Max 8
A plane of the Boeing 737 Max 8 had landed yesterday in Florida. There were no passengers in the plane that is part of the fleet that landed after two deadly crashes. The plane was brought from Orlando to California for short-term storage when the pilots reported "a performance problem" with an engine just after take-off. It is not clear whether the emergency landing was due to suspected problems with the 737 Max 8s automatic anti-stall system. The global fleet of 737 Max jets had landed indefinitely after the plane crashed in October and this month.
. 5 Climate Change
The Arctic community, in which the vault of the underworld is located, can warm up faster than any other city in the world. Longyearbyen, Norway, is the northernmost city in the world, only 800 miles from the North Pole. There is the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, which keeps copies of harvest seeds in the event of a global disaster. However, the climate in Longyearbyen is warming faster than elsewhere, says a Norwegian researcher about the Arctic's accelerated warming: warmer temperatures reduce ice and snow cover, reducing the amount of sunlight reflected and more solar energy absorbed. The vault, which should be a kind of insurance against disasters such as climate change, is thus threatened by climate change itself.
