    The massive eruption of the Tonga volcano in January produced a tsunami as tall as the Statue of Liberty, according to a report. Researchers at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom took data from deep-ocean instruments and coastal tide gauges within a 932-mile radius of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai eruption, Science News reported this week. Using these data, the scientists ran nine different computer simulations visualizing the properties of the eruption. They found that the one that best matched the recorded data was an eruption that produced initial waves as tall as 295 feet — just 10 feet short of the Statue of Liberty.

    Two people hold two Shein bags after entering SHEIN's first physical store in Madrid, Spain, June 2, 2022.Cezaro De Luca | Europa Press | Getty Images Chinese fast-fashion giant Shein hopes to do an initial public offering in the United States as soon as 2024, according to a report from Bloomberg, which cited people familiar with the matter. Yet it faces environmental, social and governance, or ESG, concerns that could be an obstacle to an IPO, according to the report. Previously, Shein had sought a 2022 IPO in the U.S., according to Reuters. Shein, which has a $100 billion valuation, has drawn scrutiny for its cheap product line that has been built on a fast and prolific production chain. A probe by Swiss watchdog group Public Eye said some of Shein's manufacturers have been subjecting employees to dangerous conditions and 75-hour workweeks. While these concerns have not dissuaded large investors such as Sequoia Capital China, IDG Capital, and Tiger Global Management, recent executive moves within Shein appear to focus on improving their ESG appearance in preparation for a public offering,...
    Plastic waste has more than doubled globally since 2000, with a whopping 353 million tonnes produced in 2019, a new report has warned. The report, by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, found that despite this surge in plastic waste, just nine per cent was successfully recycled. 'After taking into account losses during recycling, only nine percent of plastic waste was ultimately recycled, while 19 percent was incinerated and almost 50 percent went to sanitary landfills,' it said. 'The remaining 22 percent was disposed of in uncontrolled dumpsites, burned in open pits or leaked into the environment.' Based on the findings, the researchers are calling for greater efforts to improve waste management and increase recycling.

    Former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele furnished a second 'dossier' with intel on Donald Trump to the government even after publication of his infamous dossier memos and after Trump assumed office, according to a new report. He continued to produce what the Daily Telegraph referring to as a 'second dossier,' which included 'information concerning alleged sexual exploits.' The memos that made up Steele's original dossier contained allegations about Trump Russia ties as well as unverified information about his alleged conduct in in a Moscow hotel room during the Miss Universe Pageant in 2013. Former UK intelligence officer Christopher Steele arrives at the High Court in London on July 24, 2020. Steele continued to provide information to the government after the leak of his infamous dossier in January 2017, according to a report Trump has repeatedly railed against the dossier, as well as former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, which he calls a 'hoax.' Steele compiled the 35-page dossier between June and December, 2016. Buzzfeed published it in January of 2017, before Trump took office, and former FBI director James...
    Ethnic Uyghurs from China’s western Xinjiang region are likely manufacturing Chinese-made solar panels through slave labor, the human rights magazine Bitter Winter reported Wednesday. Most photovoltaic cells (PVC) used in the manufacture of solar panels are made with polysilicon components, according to Bitter Winter. About 82 percent of the world’s polysilicon “is produced in China, overwhelmingly in Xinjiang,” the magazine noted, citing an April 19 report by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). “Almost all solar panels produced in China use Xinjiang-produced polysilicon. But in fact, even solar panels produced outside China, if they use polysilicon, likely include polysilicon from Xinjiang,” Bitter Winter wrote. “Four factories in Xinjiang account for half of the world’s production of polysilicon,” the magazine pointed out, citing an April 13 report by Bloomberg News. “Bloomberg’s report showed that polysilicon factories are located suspiciously close to transformation through education camps, making it likely that inmates are forced to work there,” the magazine further noted. Chinese Communist Party (CCP) authorities operate “transformation through education camps” in Xinjiang officially to provide Marxist and vocational education to...
    Future shipments of Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine have been halted in the US after a mistake at a manufacturing plant ruined 15 million doses and raised questions about quality control, according to a report on Wednesday. The workers at Emergent BioSolutions’ Baltimore plant mixed up the ingredients for J&J’s single-dose vaccine and another COVID-19 inoculation being produced there several weeks ago, The New York Times reported. The error doesn’t affect J&J doses currently being delivered and used nationwide, as those were produced in the Netherlands, the report said. However, it has caused ten of millions of doses that were going to come from the Baltimore factory — and were to be delivered within the next month — to be put into question, according to the Times. The Food and Drug Administration in investigating the mixup, which federal officials have attributed to human error, the report said. Meanwhile, J&J is said to be taking steps to tighten its control over Emergent BioSolutions’ work to avoid future lapses in quality. The biopharmaceutical company is a manufacturing partner of both J&J and AstraZeneca. Federal officials still expect...

    LONDON (Reuters) - An estimated 17% of food available to consumers was wasted in homes, retail outlets and restaurants in 2019, according to research published by the United Nations. The report, produced jointly by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and WRAP, also found that consumer waste was broadly similar in rich and poor countries. The United Nations is producing a Food Waste Index (FWI) as it seeks to support efforts to halve food waste by 2030. "For a long time, it was assumed that food waste in the home was a significant problem only in developed countries," said Marcus Gover, CEO of WRAP, a charity which works with governments to reduce food waste. "With the publication of the Food Waste Index report, we see that things are not so clear cut." The report estimated that 931 million tonnes of food was wasted in 2019, roughly equal to 23 million fully loaded 40-tonne trucks - bumper-to-bumper enough to circle the earth seven times. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 2011 estimated that one-third of the world's food...

    An preliminary security trial of a possible coronavirus vaccine produced antibodies to the lethal illness in everybody who was examined, in keeping with a report Tuesday. The neutralizing antibodies produced by Moderna Inc.’s vaccine have been equal to the higher half of what’s seen in sufferers who get contaminated and get better, Bloomberg Information mentioned. In the meantime, the unintended effects of the vaccine weren’t dangerous sufficient to halt the testing course of, Bloomberg mentioned, citing outcomes reported by authorities researchers within the New England Journal of Drugs. Stimulating the manufacturing of antibodies is taken into account a key milestone in early testing, however doesn’t show a vaccine can be efficient, Bloomberg mentioned. The check outcomes have been based mostly on information involving the primary 45 folks enrolled within the research, all of whom have been 18 to 55 years outdated. Outcomes from a second portion of the trial that concerned older folks weren’t but accessible. A bigger, final-stage trial is ready to start on July 27, and can examine outcomes of the vaccine to these of placebo photographs...
    Humans should eat less meat and dairy to cut the nitrogen emissions produced by farming, according to a new report from UN scientists.   The livestock sector emits around 65 trillion grams (teragrams) of nitrogen a year – equivalent to one-third of all current human-induced nitrogen emissions, they say. This figure alone exceeds the 'planetary boundary' for nitrogen – one of nine boundaries that, if crossed, could endanger humanity's future on Earth.  The bulk of agricultural nitrogen emissions comes from feed production and manure management systems to feed the cattle, rather than processing meat and dairy to make it fit for human consumption.  Global livestock supply chains have significantly altered nitrogen flows over past years, thereby threatening environmental and human health Nitrogen pollution causes global warming, acid rain and eutrophication – an increased load of nutrients to global waters, which causes an abundance of oxygen-sapping blooms and kills fish. Scientists have already warned that atmospheric nitrogen needs to be reduced to around a quarter of its current volume or risk crossing a 'deleterious or even catastrophic planetary boundary'.  However, the...
    Officials in San Francisco are working to figure out a way to quiet a low hum coming from the famed Golden Gate Bridge that has become annoying to some residents. SFGate.com reported Wednesday that the noise was first reported on June 5. The culprit is reportedly the northwest winds hitting the bridge's sidewalk railings that have recently been installed in a retrofitting. The Marin Independent Journal reported earlier this week that some residents at a meeting on Friday said the noise that was produced sounded like torture and caused them physiological distress. Ewa Bauer-Furbush, the chief engineer for the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District, said at the meeting that engineers were unaware that the sound would be produced, according to the Journal. Consultants have been asked to help solve the issue.Edmund DeMarche is a senior news editor for FoxNews.com. Follow him on Twitter @EDeMarche.
