Amazon plans to file objections to the union election on Staten Island, New York that resulted in the first successful U.S. organizing effort in the company’s history. The e-commerce giant stated its plans in a legal filing to the National Labor Relations Board made public Thursday. Among other things, the company accused the Amazon Labor Union, a group of former and current employees who spearheaded the union drive, of threatening warehouse workers to vote in favor of the organizing effort. Eric Milner, an attorney representing the ALU, said claims were “patently absurd.” The federal labor board is giving the company until April 22 to back up its objections. more

U.S. government scientists calculate that levels of the potent heat-trapping gas methane rose at a record pace last year. Thursday's announcement from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration raised new climate change concerns. Methane traps more heat than carbon dioxide but it doesn't last that long in the air and isn't as plentiful. Cutting methane is seen as low-hanging fruit in the fight to curb global warming. However, for the second straight year methane levels in the air rose at record fast pace. This is despite the pandemic. Methane comes from energy use, agriculture and landfills and is also natural. more

McDonald’s investors will consider a proposal for a civil rights audit of the company. Shareholder advocacy group SOC Investment Group __ which successfully submitted a similar measure at Apple last month __ wants McDonald’s board to oversee a third-party audit that would analyze the company's civil rights record and provide recommendations for improvement. McDonald's objected, saying a public audit could hurt the company's defense in several ongoing lawsuits. But the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said this week that the proposal should remain on McDonald's proxy statement. McDonald's hasn't set a date for its next annual meeting, but they are usually held in May.  more
Nobel Peace Prize-winning newspaper editor Dmitry Muratov says he was attacked on a Russian train by an assailant who poured red paint on him, causing severe discomfort to his eyes. Muratov told Novaya Gazeta Europe, a project launched by newspaper staff after the paper suspended operation last week under government pressure, that the Thursday assault happened on a train heading from Moscow to Samara. He said the assailant shouted: "Muratov, here’s one for our boys.” Novaya Gazeta, Russia’s leading independent newspaper, announced March 28 that it was suspending operations for the duration of what it referred to in quotation marks as “the special operation” in Ukraine, the term that Russian authorities insist media must use for the war. more
A “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” TV star, a Paralympic swimmer and a self-described “brand king” were among the Instagram and TikTok influencers who were paid by Chinese officials for a discreet campaign that promoted the Beijing Winter Olympics, new Justice Department documents reveal. The social media posts fanned across a variety of popular Instagram and TikTok accounts that have a combined following of 5 million people who follow their videos, photos and content about travel destinations, sports, fashion and women’s issues. The Chinese Consulate in New York paid $300,000 to New Jersey-based firm Vippi Media to recruit the influencers.  more
Scientists have calculated that a fundamental particle of physics has more mass than expected. If verified by other experiments, the results published Thursday in the journal Science would mean that the model physicists use to understand the workings of the universe may need to be revised. Researchers at Fermi National Accelerator Lab crashed atoms together over 10 years to measure the mass of fleeting fundamental particles called W bosons and were surprised by the result. They now wonder if there's an undiscovered particle that would account for the difference, or perhaps an entirely new phenomenon.  more

A report from Facebook owner Meta finds a big jump this year in disinformation and propaganda linked to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The company, which also owns Instagram, says its review also has found an increase in domestic disinformation and propaganda in countries around the world, suggesting that the tactics pioneered by foreign intelligence organizations are now being used more widely for political and financial motives. Meta says it's trying to stay one step ahead of groups trying to exploit its site, but executives at the company acknowledge their adversaries are adapting, too. more
