1. New Zealand
Less than a week after the attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand has taken serious action with regard to arms laws. Prime Minister Jackie Ardenne announced today that all semi-automatic weapons, military guns and high-capacity magazines will be banned. The proposal is in parliament in the first week of April. Before that, New Zealand leaders could reclassify some semi-automatic weapons as "military". Of course, this means that many New Zealand citizens will suddenly be holders of illegal firearms. The country's cabinet is tasked with creating a buy-back program, and there will be a "amnesty with arms" period, during which citizens can remove the newly-banned firearms at the police stations. A lobbying group has admitted that the changes may not work well with some of its members, but said it backed tougher laws, adding: "We are trying to take a responsible path."
It was another dramatic day for British politics and the EU's big decision whether to postpone Brexit did not even happen. British Prime Minister Teresa May gave a televised address in which she reproached the accusation of Brexit's delay to MEPs and doubled her controversial, often tentative, initial agreement. She also rejected a second referendum and said she would not postpone Brexit after June 30th, the deadline she puts in Brussels today. Needless to say, British MPs were outraged and took the social media to chase. "Keeping parliament against people in the current environment is dangerous and reckless," one of the opposition MPs wrote. Meanwhile, the new figures continue to show a bleak economic future in the UK after Brexit. Banks are expected to leave about $ 1
.3 trillion from the country and about 7,000 jobs will follow.
Boeing's investigation is progressing after two deadly crashes involving the company's 737 Max. Prosecutors at the US Department of Justice issued summons for information on certification procedures for the Federal Aviation Administration, as well as for the marketing of 737 max. The investigation actually began in October 2018, after 737 Max, run by Lion Air, crashed in Indonesia. The planes remain grounded around the world, and the FAA states that Boeing has developed a software program and a pilot training program to solve the problems with computer flight control operations. The US Air Force also ordered a review of military pilots' training procedures on large cargo and transport aircraft, including Air Force One. Air Force officials said it was a precautionary measure to make sure pilots knew how and when to exclude automated pilot systems if they encountered problems.
4. Massage Hair Scandal
New England Patriot's owner Robert Kraft does not really want to see video evidence for a meeting in a Florida massage parlor that has led to a prostitution charge. His lawyers have filed a request to block the public publication of a surveillance video and other evidence gathered prior to his arrest. The state of Florida does not support the request, according to the proposal. The 77-year-old Kraft will also not accept a recognition deal on the case, a source said. Prosecutors have proposed rejecting charges against Kraft and 24 other men in exchange for fines, community service and recognition that they will be found guilty in the process.
5. Postnatal Depression
For the first time, the FDA approved a medicine specifically for the treatment of postnatal depression. Intravenous infusion is indicated in clinical trials to treat the symptoms of postpartum depression within hours. However, there are some major obstacles for women who hope for treatment: The drug is only applied as a 60-hour IV drop that should occur in a controlled hospital environment. It will also be expensive for astronomy: the company that developed the drug said it would cost around $ 20,000 to $ 35,000 for treatment.
