Stephen Fahey: It’s been a busy week.

It’s been a busy week. Mugabe died and a doctor in Gujurat, India performing the first Long-distance heart surgery by remote, while A.I. is now being used to monitor children’s behaviour in schools in Atlanta, Georgia, and the famous Walkman turned just 40 years old. On top of that China can’t stop Hong Kong protestors using the Mesh Messaging system, which saw a usage increase of 3,685%.

South Africa also came out and admitted to tapping undersea internet cables to perform mass surveillance on all online communications in the country. In Afghanistan the Taliban killed 16 and wounded 119 with a tractor bomb during the televised announcement that a deal to remove 5,400 U.S. troops from the country has neared completion. On top of that, the Indian Space Research Organisation managed to send their lunar lander „Vikram” 384,398km to the moon, only to then lose control 2km from the landing zone. It now seems that little ould Vikram is nothing more than a smouldering pile of scrap on a lifeless rock hurtling through space. R.I.P Vikram.

The F.B.I. also ordered Apple and Google to hand over the names over 10,000 users of an app for gun scopes. And the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that it will expand its social media collection program by asking immigrants, asylum seekers and refugees to provide their social media user names. They’ve already been doing with visa applicants, as do they already require a retina scan and fingerprints, so there isn’t much else for them to seek now other than a stool sample and a firm, but tender, roll in the hay. I ask ya!

In Australia, a Vegan who brought her neighbour to court complaining about the smell of BBQ lost her case. But in solidarity, thousands of protesters are planning on cooking BBQs outside her house. All this also coincides with the anniversary of the death of King Louis the 14th of France, the start of WWII, Augustus Ceaser’s defeat of Mark Anthony at Actium, the start of the great fire of London, the first elections in the Irish Free State, the first non-stop flight from the U.S. to Europe, the establishment of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion, the end of the American Revolutionary War, the founding of Los Angeles, the capture of Geronimo, Black September murdering 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team, the death of Mother Teresa, the birth of Jesse James, Leningrad being renamed Saint Petersburg, Brazil declaring independence, The Blitz beginning in London, the birth of Desmond Tutu, the birth of Queen Elizabeth the 1st and Richard Nixon receiving a full pardon.

And I thought I had a busy week.
