A second major power cut in just a few hours has plunged the Venezuelan capital Caracas into darkness again, with other regions also affected. It came after a four-hour blackout on Monday which the government sought to blame on opposition sabotage. A nationwide power cut earlier this month prompted looting and desperation in many parts of the country. The opposition blames the power cuts on two decades of underinvestment and corruption by the socialist government.

Scientists say they have discovered a “stunning” trove of thousands of fossils on a river bank in China. The fossils are estimated to be about 518 million years old, and are particularly unusual because the soft body tissue of many creatures, including their skin, eyes, and internal organs, have been “exquisitely” well preserved. Palaeontologists have called the findings “mind-blowing” – especially because more than half the fossils are previously undiscovered species. The fossils, known as the Qingjiang biota, were collected near Danshui river in Hubei province.

 

On this day in 1953, American medical researcher Dr. Jonas Salk announced on a national radio show that he had successfully tested a vaccine against poliomyelitis, the virus that causes the crippling disease of polio. In 1952–an epidemic year for polio–there were 58,000 new cases reported in the United States, and more than 3,000 died from the disease. For promising eventually to eradicate the disease, which is known as “infant paralysis” because it mainly affects children, Dr. Salk was celebrated as the great doctor-benefactor of his time.

A summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report says President Donald Trump’s campaign did not conspire with Russia during the 2016 election. The allegation clouded the first two years of Trump’s presidency and his allies see the report’s finding as a boost to his re-election chances. But Attorney General William Barr’s summary is inconclusive as to whether Trump obstructed justice. Opposition Democrats are demanding full access to Mueller’s report. Having repeatedly described the inquiry as a witch hunt, Trump said it was an “illegal takedown that failed”.

The US Federal Reserve does not expect to raise interest rates for the rest of 2019 amid slower economic growth. After a two-day meeting, monetary policymakers voted unanimously to keep the US interest rate range between 2.25%-2.5%. Fed members changed their outlook for 2019 from the two increases predicted in December to no movement. The central bank warned that “growth of economic activity has slowed from its solid rate in the fourth quarter”.

Rogue waves – huge swells that can appear from calm seas – are occurring less often but becoming more extreme, data from the US coast suggests. In the largest study of its kind, scientists analysed 20 years of observations from buoys situated along America’s western seaboard. They found that between 1994 and 2016, the waves decreased slightly in frequency but increased in height. Scientists want to better understand how and when these waves may strike. They pose a growing threat for the global shipping industry.
