Elon Musk to attend Netanyahu's speech to Congress amid controversy

WASHINGTON D.C. — In a brief social media interview posted by a Fox News reporter, Elon Musk confirmed that he will attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress as Netanyahu’s guest.

Nine months into the conflict between Israel and Hamas, Netanyahu's speech sparked protests in Washington, leading to around 200 arrests during a sit-in…

Wiz Cancels B Google Acquisition, Plans IPO Instead

Wiz Cancels $23B Google Acquisition, Plans IPO Instead

Wiz has decided to forgo a $23 billion acquisition by Google, a deal that would have marked Google’s largest acquisition to date. Instead, the cloud security startup will pursue an initial public offering (IPO) as originally planned, according to an internal memo from co-founder Assaf Rappaport. “Turning down offers like this is a challenge,” Rappaport noted in his message to employees, obtained by CNBC. He emphasized the company’s focus on reaching its next milestones: an IPO and reaching $1 billion in annual recurring revenue, milestones that had been in sight well before the acquisition talks began. The acquisition would nearly…

Groundbreaking Study Reveals Production of 'Dark Oxygen' by Seafloor Metals

Groundbreaking Study Reveals Production of 'Dark Oxygen' by Seafloor Metals

An international team of researchers has made a groundbreaking discovery: oxygen can be generated in total darkness, about 4,000 meters below the ocean surface. This surprising discovery was published in the journal Nature Geosciences Monday and challenges long-held beliefs about the origins of oxygen on Earth. The discovery focuses on potato-shaped metallic nodules found deep in the Pacific Ocean. These nodules, found at depths of about 13,100 feet, have been shown to produce oxygen through a process that does not require sunlight, overturning the traditional understanding that photosynthesis by plants and algae is the primary source of oxygen on our…

Shahjahan Bhuiya, the hangman turned TikTok star, dies in Bangladesh

Shahjahan Bhuiya, who rose to fame by executing some of Bangladesh’s most notorious criminals in exchange for reduced sentences for his crimes and later gained brief fame on TikTok, died on Monday in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka. The National Police announced Tuesday that the cause of his death, which occurred in hospital, has not yet been confirmed. Abul Kashem, Bhuiya's landlord, said he took Bhuiya to the hospital on Sunday after Bhuiya experienced chest pains.

Motorcycles and chaos in eastern Ukraine

Motorcycles and chaos in eastern Ukraine

Russian motorcycle soldiers have introduced a new element of chaos to the fighting in eastern Ukraine, often using motorcycles, dirt bikes, quad bikes and dune buggies to quickly traverse open and exposed spaces. Lieutenant Mykhailo Hubitsky described these assaults: "They moved quickly, scattered and swerved." These unconventional vehicles are now so common that Ukrainian trenches often overlook scrapyards of abandoned and exploded off-road vehicles. Moscow's forces aim to make small tactical gains, often just a few hundred meters. Despite the high risk, these motorcycle assaults help Russian forces traverse minefields while being observed by drones and under artillery fire. The…

French far right scores big win in first round of election, polls show

Early projections indicate that the Rassemblement National party has won a landslide victory in the first round of elections for the French National Assembly, bringing the nationalist, anti-immigration party to power for the first time. Polling projections suggest the party won about 34% of the vote, far ahead of President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist Renaissance party and its allies, who won about 21%. The scores do not reliably predict how many parliamentary seats each party will win, but National Rally is likely to be the largest force in the lower house, though not necessarily with an overall majority. A coalition of…

Palestinian Fighters in West Bank Draw Inspiration from Hamas in Gaza

Palestinian Fighters in West Bank Draw Inspiration from Hamas in Gaza

The narrow alleys of West Bank refugee camps are covered with black tarps to hide Palestinian fighters from Israeli drones. Green Hamas flags and “martyrs” banners adorn buildings damaged by Israeli raids and airstrikes aimed at curbing the growing militancy fueled by the Gaza conflict. This scene, however, does not take place in Gaza or a traditional Hamas stronghold, but in a refugee camp in Tulkarem, a city in the Israeli-occupied West Bank where the moderate Palestinian faction Fatah has long held sway. Recently, I met Muhammad Jaber, a local commander, in one of these dusty, war-torn alleys. At 25,…
