The Week In News: October 14th - October 20thby

A week is a long time in politics and in world news – and for that reason, we’re starting a weekly rundown of the biggest stories that are shaking the globe – with one or two that you may have missed.

The Weinstein Scandal Continues
Over 40 women in Hollywood now allege that former movie boss Harvey Weinstein committed sexual misconduct behind the scenes. Allegations from inappropriate conduct to outright sexual assault have rocked the mogul’s career to its core – with Weinstein having been expelled from the Academy and the British Film Institute as investigations continue. This is a scandal that is just getting started – and this week, it seems Hollywood was finally ready to speak out.

Spain Overrules Catalonia
The independence referendum that took place in Catalonia in recent weeks, having been ruled illegal by governing Spain, looks set to cause further rifts – as the Spanish government imposes rule over the region in an attempt to protect Catalonian citizens. Catalonian President Carles Puigdemont, however, has remained resolute – and has claimed that the Spanish state has refused to debate the issue.

Hurricane Ophelia
After a summer of tropical storms devastating the US and its territories, Hurricane Ophelia emerged in full force in Europe this week, largely affecting the UK and Ireland – bizarrely, thirty years on from the Great Storm of 1987. With Storm Brian set to unleash a ‘weather bomb’ over the British Isles this weekend, this really has been a year for devastating weather.

Wi-Fi KRACKs Emerge
This week was also not a good week for those aiming to keep their technology safe – as it emerged that a new exploit, known as KRACK, could affect all Wi-Fi services operating WP2 security. This covers most home broadband routers and public hotspots. With only Microsoft thus far supplying a patch for the issue, other major tech brands are set to publish their own updates in the days and weeks to come.

Uranus in the Night Sky
Any awful jokes about a certain planet’s name aside, it seems that we will be able to spot the seventh planet in the solar system in the sky over the next month – meaning that it’s the perfect time to grab a telescope and go star-gazing – particularly as the Orionid Meteor Shower is set to cast its own spectacular show across the night sky, too.

Who knows where we’ll be in a week’s time? Stay tuned – and we’ll keep you up to date.
