Recent years have seen the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef system, dying, from rising sea temperatures linked to climate change. Marine biologists noted on Sunday that the biggest mass coral spawning in recent years has begun on Australia's Great Barrier Reef. According to a report in Phys.org, every year, the world's largest reef system goes into a synchronized mass release of coral eggs and sperm. The phenomenon occurs once a year under specific conditions after a full moon, when water temperatures remain around 27 to 28 Celsius degrees. The event sees soft corals being released first followed by hard corals. Now, Mashable India reports that scientists are planning to use the mass event to help restore dead parts of the reef. They will do this with the help of the Larval Restoration Project. Getting set up for the Coral Larval Restoration Project on the #GreatBarrierReef with the countdown to #spawningGBR.

He poignantly stated: ‘We are creating a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity.’ Over two decades since, this seems naïve. Worldwide scandals such as Cambridge Analytica, Russia’s 2016 US election meddling, YouTube’s algorithmic propensity to serve up neo-Nazi propaganda and Twitter’s failure to police white supremacists, have progressively populated our news and conversations. In our own backyard, just recently, as the anti-Muslim #मुस्लिमो_का_संपूर्ण_बहिष्कार (total boycott of Muslims) continued to trend, Twitter’s silence was deafening. Virtual and real social … [Read more...] about Can governments control social media? Or can users?
The CBA has admitted it lost backup data on tape for more than 15 years of customer statements in 2016, affecting almost 20 million accounts. The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) is now seeking more assurances from the bank that it has learnt from the massive data breach. CBA says it had been unable to confirm the destruction of two magnetic tapes containing historical customer statements. The tapes contained customer names, addresses, account numbers and transaction details from 2000 to early 2016. The breach has sent a wave of fury through CBA customers who want answers. In an attempt to soften the blow, the bank has sent notifications to customers on the status of their accounts. Those not affected received word that “there is no evidence of your information being compromised and you do not need to take any action”.
