Liz Derr, an analyst in the US, warned that satellite images collected over the past five years show that

a large amount of waste discharged from Chinese ships is present in the areas.

The area that it illegally occupies in the South China Sea has severely damaged coral reefs and the life of many marine species.

Speaking at the Philippines' online news forum on China's actions in the South China Sea, Liz Derr, head of US software company Simularity,

which develops artificial intelligence to analyze satellite images, said: Hundreds of Chinese fishing

boats anchored in the Spratly Islands area, have dumped garbage and human waste into the sea.

According to this analyst, the waste has accumulated to a significant extent leading to the proliferation of toxic algae species, damaging coral reefs and seriously threatening fish habitat.

On June 17 alone, at least 236 ships were spotted in the atoll, internationally known as Union Banks, Derr said.

Derr warned that fish species such as tuna that breed in coral reefs could be threatened and fish numbers could be significantly reduced in an area considered a major source of seafood for the area.

Upon learning of this information, the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs said

it would evaluate the findings of analyst Liz Derr to come up with the most appropriate response.

Police are investigating if there is a link between this subject and the amount of digital currency seized during the second trace.

According to London Deputy Police Chief, Mr. Graham McNulty, taking advantage of the development of digital platforms,

criminal gangs are turning to more sophisticated money laundering methods, which use digital money to hide.

According to Bloomberg, recently, Google will have to pay a fine of $ 593 million in France because "the world's search giant" failed to comply with an

agreement with publishers to use their news content on this platform. . Isabelle de Silva, President of the French Antitrust Authority, said that this

decision to penalize Google shows the exceptional seriousness of the violations and that Google's behavior has continued to delay proper enforcement of the law".

Recently, Isabelle de Silva, President of the French Antitrust Authority, said that Google will have to pay a fine of $ 593 million in France because "the world's search giant"

does not comply with an agreement with the publishers. publish to use their news content on the platform.

This decision demonstrates the exceptional gravity of the violations and Google's conduct further delaying proper enforcement of the law."

In Europe, the confrontation between Google and a series of owners of newspapers and electronic services has been going on for many years.

Publishers in Europe have been pushing regulators for more than a decade to counter the power of Google, which has raked in billions of dollars in advertising revenue.

Groups representing newspapers and magazines in France filed a complaint against Google in 2019

The Thai government has allowed people to use Covid-19 test kits at home, and Covid-19 patients with mild symptoms can also self-isolate at home, because of concerns about the rising momentum.

A Food and Drug Administration official said authorities were trying to keep the price of the rapid test kit,

which is less accurate than the RT-PCR test, at around 100 baht (3.06 USD).

Australian scientists say they have developed the "holy grail" of blood sugar testing for diabetics, a non-invasive strip that checks glucose levels via saliva.

For patients with diabetes, controlling blood sugar usually involves pricking the finger with a needle several times a day

and then dripping the blood onto a test strip. As a result, some diabetics, out of fear of pain, avoid this test.

according to Paul Dastoor, Professor of Physics at the University of Newcastle in Australia,

This latest test works by embedding an enzyme that detects glucose into a transistor that can then transmit the presence of glucose,

Since the electronic materials in the transistor are inks, the test can be made through printing at a low cost, Dastoor said.

"The holy grail of glucose testing has been something that is non-invasive," said Dastoor. "(This test) really does open up the prospect of pain-free, low-cost

glucose testing and hopefully much better outcomes for diabetes sufferers," he said.

The team of scientists discovered this diabetes testing method by accident while studying solar cells.

The project secured A$6.3 million ($4.7 million) in funding from the Australian government to establish a facility to produce the test kits should clinical trials be passed.

Dastoor says the technology could also be transferred to COVID-19 testing and allergen, hormone and cancer testing.

Specifically, the University of Newcastle worked with Harvard University on a test for COVID-19 using the same technology.

Recently, field turtles (English name is Caretta Caretta) were released into the sea on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey after completing treatment in Hatay province,

thanks to by the dedicated team of experts from the Sea Turtle First Aid and Rehabilitation Center at Mustafa Kemal University.

On the Mediterranean coast in Turkey, the Sea Turtle First Aid and Rehabilitation Center at Mustafa Kemal University recently

released 20 wild turtles and green sea turtles back into the ocean, after a period of treatment to them.

Explaining the reasons for injury to sea turtles, Altug said: "Injuries are mostly seen in the form of propeller and fishing line damage.

Also, plastic pollution in the sea causes stomach diseases as the sea turtles eat fishing line.

recent years, the attacks of stray dogs, especially on the beaches, have caused a very

serious number of [sea turtle] deaths. For this reason, there has been a serious loss in the number of green sea turtles that come to egg-laying.

Caretta caretta turtles weigh between 300 and 400 pounds and feed on sea animals. Mature turtles lay approximately 100 eggs in each nest they dig in the breeding season,

May to October. Then they hide their eggs by covering them up with sand and return to the sea.

The endangered sea turtles face becoming extinct due to the destruction of their natural environment, artificial lighting at night and human activities.

The Spanish city of Esplugues de Llobregat, near Barcelona, staged an open air concert with protective bubbles and headphones for the audience on Friday.
