Google and Facebook Inc have granted an Australian local government news provider status, drawing questions about the internet giants' efforts to curate news media. Bundaberg Council, a regional government, told Reuters a website it runs received classification as a Google "news source", making it the country's first local government with that accreditation. That means a council-funded website containing only public relations content gets priority in Google News searches about the agriculture hub of 100,000 people, accompanied by a "news source" tag.

Indonesia's air accident investigator is probing whether a problem with the autothrottle system, that controls engine power automatically, contributed to the Sriwijaya Air crash on Jan. 9 that killed all 62 people on board, an official said on Friday. National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) investigator Nurcayho Utomo said a problem with the Boeing 737-500's autothrottle system was reported after a flight a few days earlier. "There was a report of malfunction on the autothrottle a couple of days before to the technician in the maintenance log, but we do not know what kind of problem," he told Reuters.

EU leaders on Thursday "strongly discouraged" Europeans from non-essential travel and warned tougher restrictions on trips could come within days if efforts to curb the coronavirus fell short. EU chiefs Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel issued the warning after a four-hour summit by video link with the heads of government of the 27-nation bloc focused on responding to the second wave of the pandemic.The tone of urgency was fuelled by fears over the spread of highly contagious coronavirus variants that could send already high infection rates skyrocketing and strain hospitals, as is happening in former EU member Britain."All non-essential travel should be strongly discouraged both within the country and of course across borders," von der Leyen, head of the European Commission, told a media conference.Michel, president of the European Council, said: "It will be probably necessary to take additional restrictive measures in order to limit the non-essential travels and that is the orientation that we are taking."Both added that further coordination on that issue would be made in "the next days".But both also said the EU wanted to avoid a repeat of the height of the first wave, in March last year, when several member states panicked and closed off national borders unilaterally, triggering travel and economic chaos."It is absolutely important to keep the single market functioning," von der Leyen said, so that workers and freight can continue to cross borders.The European Union is "one epidemiological zone," she said. "We will only contain the virus if we have targeted measures, and not unnecessary measures like a blanket closure of borders, which would severely hurt our economy, but not very much restrict the virus."But to avoid closing the intra-EU borders in the passport-free Schengen zone, testing needs to be stepped up, leaders agreed.From Sunday, anybody arriving from outside the EU -- possible only for those with essential reasons -- could have to have a test for Covid-19 before departure, von der Leyen said.Within the EU, some countries will apply prior testing for cross-border trips that do not come under essential categories such as workers and truck drivers.From Sunday France will require a negative PCR test 72 hours before departure for most European arrivals other than those on essential travel, President Emmanuel Macron told the European Council, according to his office.A statement from Macron's office said "some of his European counterparts" have also chosen this approach.Variant spreading in Portugal The summit also backed wider use of antigen tests in other situations deemed low-risk. Those tests, often using saliva samples, are cheaper and faster -- though less reliable -- than nose-probing PCR tests. Thursday's summit started just as the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said there was a "very high" probability of the more contagious variants spreading in the European Union.These mutations -- which emerged in Britain, South Africa and Brazil -- have already prompted bans or restrictions on travellers from those countries.Belgium -- wedged between Germany, France and the Netherlands -- had gone into the summit pleading for a "temporary" closure during its February holiday period.Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz had also voiced support "for stricter entry controls and testing requirements to keep virus mutations out".Currently, the concerning variants remain a tiny proportion of overall cases in most of the EU.But Portugal is serving as an early warning of what may be to come. Its government ordered schools closed for two weeks because of the rapid spread of the British variant, which Prime Minister Antonio Costa said accounted for 20 percent of infections and could make up 60 percent as soon as next week.While there was no indication as yet the new variants were more deadly, there were concerns their faster spread could overload hospital intensive care capacity. Vaccine certificates After a disappointingly slow start to vaccination in the EU, the European Commission has been urging greater speed from member states. It hopes to soon authorise more vaccines beyond the BioNTech/Pfizer and Moderna ones currently being injected, and aims to inoculate 70 percent of adults in the EU before September.The leaders also discussed vaccine certificates, something tourism-dependent countries such as Greece hope might ease travel curbs and save what looks like another disastrous summer vacation period. But EU leaders decided it was too early and too many questions remained for such a certificate to be used as anything more than a health record.(AFP)

Donald Trump fell victim to a hoax caller who pretended to be Piers Morgan, the Good Morning Britain presenter said. Morgan told the BBC's Americast podcast the prankster rang the then-president in October when he was on Air Force One. It only emerged when Mr Trump rang the real Morgan out of the blue while on his way to vote in Florida. The pair had fallen out over Morgan criticising Mr Trump's handling of the pandemic. Morgan described the prank call as "an hilarious story," adding "somebody had called him pretending to be me the day before and got through to him on Air Force One and they had a conversation with Trump thinking he was talking to me". The identity of the alleged prankster is unknown. If Mr Trump was duped, he would not be the first prominent figure to be fooled. In March last year the Duke of Sussex was reportedly tricked into speaking about his decision to quit the royal family by Russian hoaxers posing as activist Greta Thunberg. Morgan, 55, is a long-time acquaintance of Mr Trump, 74, and in 2008 won a series of Celebrity Apprentice, a show hosted by the billionaire businessman. They had been friendly during Mr Trump's time in the White House before their fallout last year. Morgan said Mr Trump was a "useless leader" because of his "character flaws - the chronic narcissism, the desire to make everything about himself".

Intel Corp executives have raised the possibility of licensing chipmaking technology from outside firms, a move that could see it exchanging manufacturing secrets with rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (TSMC) or Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. Intel is one of the few remaining semiconductor firms that both designs and manufactures its own chips, but the business model has come into question in recent years as the company lost its manufacturing lead to the Taiwanese and Korean companies. But licensing technology could help Intel avoid major investments in rivals' factories that outsourcing deals would likely entail.
Gold inched lower on Friday as U.S. Treasury yields ticked up, though bets of a large U.S. stimulus kept the metal on course for its best week in five. Spot gold fell 0.3% to $1,863.56 per ounce by 0233 GMT, retreating from its highest since Jan. 8 hit on Thursday. "Gold is struggling a bit due to a lift in nominal yields, which came off the back of strong U.S. jobless claims number, also the European Central Bank (ECB) came out a little less dovish than the market would like," said IG Market analyst Kyle Rodda.
