Why Is The US Suing Apple?

APPLE LAWSUIT
Tech giant Apple is facing some big legal trouble in the US. The Department of Justice and 16 states are all suing the company in a landmark antitrust lawsuit. Yeah, this little device is the centre of a huge legal battle right now. Over in the U.S, the Department of Justice and 16 states are accusing Apple of creating an illegal monopoly in the smartphone market. That’s right, the Department of Justice reckons Apple purposely designs its products to keep apps or devices made by other companies like smart watches, digital wallets, or messaging platforms from working easily or, in some cases at all. It says any restrictions on outside apps or devices is for their customers privacy and safety and called the lawsuit “wrong on the facts and the law”. The lawsuit is expected to go on for the next few years.

RAINBOW LORIKEET
The rainbow lorikeet has been crowned Australia’s most commonly spotted bird! Last October, more than 60,000 keen bird watchers spent at least 20 minutes outside, trying to identify the birds in their backyard and added the results into the Aussie Bird Count app, with the rainbow lorikeet spotted the most, followed by the noisy miner and the magpie.

DAME MARY GILMORE
Meet Dame Mary Gilmore. Mary was born in 1865 near Goulburn in rural New South Wales. Her father worked many jobs, and Mary moved around the countryside with her family a lot. During that time, she went to several different schools, and that’s where she discovered her love for writing, and when she was just 16, she passed her teaching exams and became a teacher! At the time there was a depression, which meant the economy was really bad and workers were striking over pay and work conditions. That sparked Mary’s interest in politics and social change. She became the first female member of the Australian Workers’ Union and wrote articles where she called for radical change to give workers more rights. She wrote articles and poems for every publication possible, campaigning for women’s voting rights, pensions, and better treatment for returned servicemen and Indigenous people. Alongside this, she published many books of poetry. Her influential writing gained her the title of D.B.E or Dame in 1937, which is awarded to someone by the King or Queen for their services to the country. Dame Mary Gilmore died in 1962 at 97 years old, but she lives on today on our 10-dollar notes, along with her famous poem “No foe shall gather our harvest”, reminding us all to fight for what we believe in, so we can make the world a better place.

NEURALINK RECIPIENT PLAYS CHESS
Now this game of chess is using the brain in more ways than one. Noland here is the first person to get a Neuralink chip implant, which lets him use his mind to control his computer. A diving accident left him paralysed from the shoulders down and he says the Neuralink, while it could do with some improvements here and there, has already changed his life.

CORAL LAB
Now to the UK, where scientists are in a race to save the world’s coral. In this lab, they’re growing all sorts from around the world in special tanks that mimic their ideal conditions perfectly. They say the lab-grown corals can be transplanted onto struggling reefs.

TURTLE INCUBATION
And finally to baby turtles hatching at the Queensland Museum. These endangered loggerhead turtles started their journey on Mon Repos beach near Bundaberg, but have been brought here to incubate and hatch, safe from predators that might eat them before being returned to the ocean.
