With 30 days to go until the start of an Olympic Games dogged by the coronavirus pandemic and by controversy, Tokyo Olympics President Seiko Hashimoto defended the organisers' decision to allow spectators into Olympic venues. Japanese medical experts said last Friday that banning spectators was the least risky option but also included in their report recommendations on how to host the Games if spectators were admitted. Organisers said on Monday up to 10,000 domestic spectators would be allowed into venues.
The number of people stopped from buying guns through the U.S. background check system hit an all-time high of more than 300,000 last year amid a surge of firearm sales, according to new records obtained by the group Everytown for Gun Safety. The FBI numbers provided to The Associated Press show the background checks blocked nearly twice as many gun sales in 2020 as in the year before. About 42% of those denials were because the would-be buyers had felony convictions on their records.

A deadly shootout between security forces and militants opposed to army rule erupted Tuesday in Myanmar’s second biggest city when a raid was carried out on a building that the government described as a hideout of “terrorists.” At least eight people were killed in the gun battle in Mandalay, the military-run Myawaddy Television's news service reported. The word “terrorists” is generally used by the government and state media to refer to members of the armed resistance that has arisen against the February military takeover that ousted the elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi.
When U.S. law enforcement officials need to cast a wide net for information, they’re increasingly turning to the vast digital ponds of personal data created by Big Tech companies via the devices and online services that have hooked billions of people around the world.

In just the first half of 2020 -- the most recent data available -- Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft together fielded more than 112,000 data requests from local, state and federal officials.

Amid the pandemic, pollen may not just affect people with hay fever.
During the pandemic, pollen may be nothing to sneeze at.Scientists from the American Institute of Physics in Maryland noticed a correlation between coronavirus infection rates and pollen concentrations.Pollen grains can carry hundreds of viral particles at a time, with trees alone releasing up to 1,500 grains per cubic meter during peak hay fever season.To learn more, the scientists used a computer model to mimic how pollen moves from a willow tree.Results – published in the journal Physics of Fluids – suggest airborne grains may contribute to the spread of the coronavirus, particularly in a crowded place.In the UK, willow's pollen season generally lasts from early March to mid May. Oak, pine and lime trees continue to release the allergen throughout June and July, however.

So this decision was flawed, clearly there were politics behind it, clearly those politics have subverted a proper process and for the World Heritage Committee to not even foreshadow this listing is, I think, appalling."

Secondary school drop-outs in Tanzania will be offered the opportunity to resume studies in alternative colleges, the government said on Tuesday, part of a shift away from a disputed policy under which pregnant girls were expelled from school. Such expulsions had increased under the tenure of maverick President John Magufuli, who died in March, according to rights groups who accused his government of discriminating against female students based on a policy that dated back to 1961. "We are offering an alternative path to education to all children who missed their education for any reason, including those girls who got pregnant while in school, through our Folk Development Colleges (FDCs)," Leonard Akwilapo, a senior official at the Ministry of Education, told Reuters by phone.
