A Twitter user identified as Ameerah Sufyan, with the username @Ameerah_sufyan, who sounded the alarm on the microblogging platform a few weeks ago about the kidnapping of herself and sixteen others by unknown gunmen, apologized, saying it was a false alarm.

Recall that Ameerah in a post on Tuesday afternoon revealed that gunmen dressed in police uniforms singled her out and a few others including three pregnant women and two children from their homes in Abuja.

She said they had not seen her phone, which allowed her to send the message asking for the intervention and rescue of their captors.

Please whoever has my whatsapp number i sent a broadcast message from my location. We were abducted at gunpoint by [people] with police uniforms and a van from our homes in different parts of Abuja. We are 17 including 3 pregnant women and two small children. They didn’t see my phone,’ she wrote.

She gave an update on their captors, saying they were four Yoruba men and two Fulani men.

“They are 4 Yoruba and two Fulani men. They separated us an hour ago, we are 7 here. The other vehicle, they said they will reach illorin and ours will reach ibadan or ikeja as they have said.”

However, days after the incident, Ameerah via her Twitter handle on Monday refuted the reports, apologizing to the general public for raising such alarm.

She added that nothing like that happened because it was just her negative thinking.

“Hi everyone, I would like to officially apologize to the general public, the entire police department, my friends and family for misleading them with the tweet below, nothing like this happened and it was only my delusions and my negative thoughts, I would also like to thank

“I purposely walked out of our house, went to these places, walked into the bushes and got dehydrated and starved for four days just like that, there was no abduction , nothing at all, I really apologize and pray for me please”

She also begged the public to pray for her while thanking the IG for helping her.

“I would like to thank IG and CP babaji Sunday for getting me through this, may God reward them abundantly.”

It’s been a tough week for the crypto community as major coins fell Again. As usual on Crypto Twitter, prices were the least concern for everyone. Instead, the drama centered around the seemingly endless saga of Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter. Other foul play charges have also been leveled against Terraform Labs CEO Do Kwon following the collapse of UST.

On Monday, Musk made it clear in a letter to twitter general counsel it is his $44 billion takeover bid is “temporarily pending” pending confirmation that less than 5% of microblogging platform users are spambots. In the amended document, which was filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, Musk accused Twitter of “actively resisting and frustrating its rights to information.”

Alex Weprin, journalist for The Hollywood Reporterargued that Musk’s latest move was either tactical or a sign of coldness. Decryptof the IEC think Musk’s gripe about the bots is his attempt to back out of the deal. Musk’s apparent tremor was the talk of Crypto Twitter, as many in the community have high hopes for the crypto features Musk would implement if he bought Twitter.

Musk remained tight-lipped about the deal on his account, although he later shared a YouTube content surveillance meme tweeted to him by a follower. Perhaps he then has YouTube in his M&A sights?

Musk also shared a laugh with Twitter’s bitcoin-maxi co-founder Jack Dorsey about creating a Dogecoin-powered “Web69.”

Grayscale continues ETF push

On Tuesday, crypto asset manager Grayscale, which manages $43.6 billion late last year, tweeted a short thread about his decision to hire Donald Virilli Jr., former US Solicitor General under President Obama, to the firm current campaign to convert its world-leading Bitcoin fund into an SEC-approved ETF.

Grayscale launched the official app in October last year and expects a response from the SEC by July 6. Grayscale also recently launched a advertising campaign ask consumers to help by defending the ETF directly to the SEC in writing. If successful, it would be the first regulated spot crypto ETF product in the United States.

Solana vs. Defi Safety

Also on Tuesday, decentralized finance watchdog DeFi Safety ranked Solana as the second-worst blockchain out of the fifteen it has ranked so far, placing the chain only above Axie Infinity in terms of technical risk. The ranking came a week after Solana’s third major accident of the year. DeFi Safety unpacked its findings in a massive 28-tweet thread, some of which were refuted by Solana at Decrypt.

On Wednesday, Bitcoin maximalist MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor tweeted an excerpt from an interview with CNBC with the words: “If #bitcoin doesn’t go to zero, then it goes to a million.”

MicroStrategy currently holds $3.5 billion in Bitcoin at today’s prices. In the clip, Saylor pointed to the bipartisan Responsible Financial Innovation Act proposed by pro-crypto senators Cynthia Lummis and Kirsten Gillibrand as a sign that attitudes toward crypto are changing rapidly and fostering cross-party cooperation in Washington.

Frustrations with Gensler inside the SEC?

Also Wednesday, FinancialTimes writer Sujeet Indap shared screenshots of a subscription-only law publication Law360 which alleges that SEC attorneys are leaving the federal agency because of SEC Chairman Gary Gensler’s alleged propensity for dragging out cases indefinitely, rather than settling them.

In light of the gossip, one can only wonder where SEC case against Ripple falls into this.

More trouble for Do Kwon

In the fallout from The Collapse of Terrathis week it was the turn of the SEC to turn up the heat on Terraform Labs CEO Do Kwon. Some agency attorneys believe Terra may have violated federal investor protection regulations.

Meanwhile, in a separate legal case from Do Kwon, his appeal of a September 2021 SEC Subpoena was overturned on Wednesday when a US court determined that it must comply with investigations in the mirror protocol.

On top of all this, Kwon has been accused by the South Korean press of have committed several financial crimesincluding tax evasion, fraud and insider trading.

The local press was back this week, this time accusing Kwon of allegedly taking $80 million a month from Terra and sending it to secret wallets for a mind-blowing total of $2.7 billion. A number of top Crypto Twitter influencer accounts amplified the claim on Saturday.

Kwon took to Twitter on Sunday to insist on his innocence in a pointed thread.

Kwon says he only received a “nominal cash salary” from Terraform Labs. “I also lost most of what I had in the crash,” he added. “I’ve said it many times, but I really don’t care much about money.”

On June 8, Chinese multinational tech company Baidu unveiled Robo-01, an autonomous vehicle developed by Baidu’s electric car subsidiary Jidu Auto.

Although Baidu has been at the forefront of AI and self-driving car racing in China for years, this is the first commercial robot vehicle that will be launched by any Chinese technology company.

In April 2021, the tech giant rolled out the first batch of self-driving taxis on the streets of Beijing.

According to the company, Robo-01 does not need any human intervention to operate. At a price of 30,000 USD minimum, a model 90% similar to the prototype will arrive on the market in 2023.

With its angular shape, sleek design, and upward sliding doors, Robo-01 wouldn’t look out of place in a video game or sci-fi movie.

Manufactured in the eastern Chinese city of Ningbo, the “robot car” aims to give Tesla’s Model Y, a consumer electric car costing around $60,000 in China, a run for its money.

During the launch of the futuristic car, which aptly took place on Baidu’s metaverse app, Xirang, a virtual emcee introduced the car to a virtual audience.

Even the face of the campaign—and the car’s very first “owner” in the metaverse—is a digital person called Xi Jiajia. In the promotional video, Xi is seen relaxing in Robo-01 as he takes him on a free-wheeling journey through a hyper-tech city.

In addition to turning heads in the tech community, the news also sparked a lot of discussion on microblogging platform Weibo, where a hashtag for the unveiling of the car has over 40 million views. More than anything, netizens were mesmerized by Xi’s virtual testimony – a associated hashtag has over 11 million views.

Most Weibo users reacted positively to Baidu’s self-driving car and dropped comments like “I’m saving one!” and “I think this kind of smart car is really cool!”

However, a handful of netizens have expressed concern over Robo-01’s self-driving feature.

“Are you sure this car will be ready for mass production? It’s too risky to rely so much on software to work,” reads a worried comment.

Published: updated on – 00:01, Wed – 8 Jun 22

If Elon Musk pulls out of the deal, he will have to pay $1 billion in ‘reverse termination fees’.

Hyderabad: Tesla founder and world’s richest person Elon Musk has back and forth on one of the most popular and controversial deals in the tech world. He first announced that he had reached an agreement to buy micro-blogging platform Twitter for $44 billion on April 25. And within 50 days, Musk threatened to rescind the deal citing the need for fake account data.

However, what exactly will happen if the Twitter-Musk deal doesn’t go through and can the deal get derailed?

A May 19 Financial Times report stressed that “merely abandoning the deal is not an option”. It says Musk and Twitter both signed the merger agreement, which states that “the parties will use their best efforts to complete and effect the transactions contemplated by this agreement.”

However, if Musk pulls out of the merger, he will have to pay a $1 billion “reverse termination fee” first and that can only happen if all other closing conditions are met and only applies when there is an external reason. a deal cannot close or where there is fraud or the so-called “material adverse effect,” according to a May 13 CNBC report. That’s exactly what Musk accused Twitter of doing — a material breach — and threatened to terminate the deal, reports suggest.

Another blow, according to the deal, is that not only does Musk have to pay the termination fee, but Twitter may also enact a clause that could force Musk to close the deal at $54.20 per share. The Guardian report mentions that Section 9.9 of the deal entitles Twitter to specific performance, under which Musk must pay if he still has the debt financing in place and Twitter still wants to complete the deal.

CNBC’s report also says Musk and his investors would like Twitter to lower its sale price even as Twitter shares have fallen in recent weeks. The report also says Twitter may not have many good options outside of renegotiating with Musk and would like to avoid a costly lawsuit. “Twitter’s best bet might just be accepting a lower offer from Musk,” he said.

Finally, whether the deal goes through or not, the whole saga has definitely put Musk in a controversial position in the tech world. Reports suggest his actions over the past few weeks have permanently tarnished his reputation and this could hamper any future deals and/or takeovers he plans to make.

Remarks by BJP spokespersons drew international attention, with Qatar’s foreign ministry summoning Indian ambassador Deepak Mittal and issuing an official memo on ‘total rejection and condemnation’ of a leader’s controversial remarks of the BJP against the Prophet Muhammad”.

“The ambassador indicated that the tweets in no way reflect the views of the Indian government. They are the views of fringe elements,” a spokesperson for the Indian embassy in Qatar said.

Reacting to the statement, Ramesh tweeted: “The BJP has suspended two spokespersons after protests from the government of Qatar. It’s what Americans call a good cop-bad cop routine. seem moderate. MEA calling BJP spokespersons ‘fringe elements’ is a joke!”

The head of the Congress social media department, Rohan Gupta, also tweeted, “Now the Indian government is calling BJP spokespersons fringe elements!”

Another Congress leader, Shashi Tharoor, said this fire needed to be put out as it was now also gripping the NRIs.

‘The way the BJP embraced the phrase’Ghar Phoonk Tamasha Dekhna‘ (putting on a show after setting the house on fire), the leader of every secular citizen in the country bowed in shame. Now, even non-resident Indians are in the grip of this fire. This fire must be put out immediately,” the former Union minister said in a tweet in Hindi.

Amid protests from Muslim groups over the remarks, the BJP also issued a statement aimed at allaying minority concerns and distancing itself from these members, saying it respects all religions and strongly opposes insulting any religious personality.

“Today’s BJP statement saying ‘strongly against any ideology that insults or belittles any sect or religion’ is nothing but blatant pretense and a feigned attempt at damage control,” he said. said Surjewala.

“One thing is clear, this is a lesson for the outspoken BJP members that they are just fodder in this game of political grandstanding and can be used, tossed and discarded in the blink of an eye,” did he declare.

The Congress leader said a brief BJP statement is unlikely to heal the millions of wounds inflicted on the ethics of Indianness.

“Will the bulldozing of India’s soul, philosophy and global humanity by the bulldozer of hate finally stop? Will the lynching of our constitutional philosophy cease? The repentance of the BJP and its leaders is it possible?” He asked.

Surjewala said the truth is that the BJP has pushed India into a dark age of religious polarization to serve its short term parochial political agenda.

As a result, Sikhs, Muslims, Christians as well as SCs, STs and OBCs had to face the wrath of lumpen elements backed by state power, he alleged, adding that this cannot be the central theme of any political party.

“The BJP and its shenanigans have repeatedly and purposefully insulted the age-old Indian civilizational ethos of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ by constantly pitting one community and religion against another to polarize, divide and spread hatred,” Surjewala said.

He said the intrinsic character of the BJP and the Modi government is now based on religious violence, divisive conservatism and nurturing hatred to secure vote-banking politics.

“No less than the Prime Minister and BJP Chief Ministers like Adityanath introduced a new political vocabulary of state-sponsored division of society, namely ‘Shamshan-Kabristan’, ’80 against 20 “Bulldozer,” he said, adding that political language in elections no longer focuses on phrases such as development, employment, progress, education, agriculture, irrigation, electricity, trade, business and infrastructure. .

“It is now all about creating, propagating, promoting and executing a divide between religions and communities based on what they wear, what they eat, how they live, how they celebrate their religion or even how they speak,” he said.

The internet is a unique place where you can get interesting videos that have the potential to amaze anyone. One such video has surfaced on social media, showing a rickshaw moving on its own without its puller. As soon as the video was posted, netizens began comparing the rickshaw with Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s automatic car. The incident witnessed in Bangladesh showed that the rickshaw was moving on a very windy and stormy day.

According to the 20-second video, a driverless rickshaw heads into the middle of a busy road. Despite stopping in the center of the road, the rickshaw managed to avoid colliding with incoming cars. However, that’s not the surprising part of the video. As the video progressed, the rickshaw can be seen backing up and returning to its original position in the same manner. Further on, a person is then seen holding the driverless rickshaw around the corner.

Viral Rickshaw Video

Although the obvious reason is the strong wind, netizens compared it to Tesla cars.

Another rickshaw incident went viral when a man created a mini garden on the roof of a rickshaw. In April, Erik Solheim, a Norwegian ambassador, shared the image on Twitter. He wrote: “This Indian has grown grass on his rickshaw to stay cool even in the heat. Pretty cool indeed!” Meanwhile, the photo showed the roof of the rickshaw with manicured grass along with some potted plants placed on the side edge of the vehicle.
