Toilet paper crisis solved as government prints trillions of fresh, soft US dollar bills

article_5829_2.jpg

USA--As part of a sweeping initiative to help unclog the economic constipation caused by the coronavirus quarantine, the White House announced they are printing out fresh, crisp dollar bills for every US citizen. "We understand the hardship this quarantine has put on people," the White House explained in a press briefing. "Parents aren't able to drop their kids off at the pool. Florists have had to stop putting soil in the pot. With sports events canceled, we can't take the Browns to the Super Bowl. Until things get flowing again, we see this as the obvious solution to a situation that has taken a definite plunge."

Rare ozone hole opens over Arctic

ozone_hole.jpg

A vast ozone hole — likely the biggest on record in the north — has opened in the skies above the Arctic. It rivals the better-known Antarctic ozone hole that forms in the southern hemisphere each year. Record-low ozone levels currently stretch across much of the central Arctic, covering an area about three times the size of Greenland (see 'Arctic opening'). The hole doesn't threaten people's health, and will probably break apart in the coming weeks. But it is an extraordinary atmospheric phenomenon that will go down in the record books. "From my point of view, this is the first time you can speak about a real ozone hole in the Arctic," says Martin Dameris, an atmospheric scientist at the German Aerospace Center in Oberpfaffenhofen.

Could Coronavirus Spell the End of Globalisation?

The Covid-19 pandemic has dealt a heavy blow to globalisation, and the world after the coronavirus is unlikely to be the same: states and nations may again become paramount in European politics, at the expense of supranational structures.

'This is low, even for you': Hillary Clinton uses record coronavirus deaths to bash Trump, gets virtual punches herself

As the US recorded more cases of Covid-19 than any other country in the world, Hillary Clinton used the opportunity to crack jokes about President Trump. The failed presidential candidate was savaged online for her insensitivity. As of Friday, the United States has recorded more than 94,000 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, passing out China and Italy. More than 1,400 Americans have died, hospitals are approaching capacity, and a record 3.3 million workers have filed for unemployment. As the US passed this grim milestone, former secretary of state and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took the opportunity not to send Americans a message of hope or solidarity, but to mock President Trump.

Coronavirus-inspired terrorists are planning attacks, says DoJ report  -  but in a fear-charged climate, which is the real threat?

The US Justice Department has warned - with scant evidence - that coronavirus is encouraging terrorists to attack. But Covid-19 is actually deadlier than terrorism, and experts warn against criminalizing its transmission. The pandemic is accelerating the dastardly plots of terrorists, according to John Demers, the assistant attorney general for national security at the Justice Department, who shared his fears - and he has a lot of them - with Politico on Friday. Demers warned that terrorists would "take advantage of" certain "windows of opportunities," though he acknowledged that there was no overarching trend. "Some people are putting off plans, and other people are saying, 'Well I've got to accelerate this because maybe all the borders will be shut down soon,'" Demers explained, covering his bases.

Big Tech teams up with White House to battle Covid-19  -  and spy on us all

Governments and scientists alike agree that 'tracking' is a key strategy for containing the coronavirus. It is now clear they intend to do so using technology like smartphones, a move that raises concerns about privacy, however. Both US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence made sure to mention the 'COVID-19 Screening Tool' app developed by Apple at their daily press briefing on Friday. According to the White House, the app "guides users through questions about symptoms and exposure," using guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) "to help determine steps they should take, including testing." Considering how many Americans use Apple devices - almost 200 million, according to some of the most recent estimates - the app certainly seems like the ideal way for the authorities to identify and track everyone who might be displaying symptoms of the coronavirus.
