Mealworm Valentine treats charm London Zoo’s squirrel monkeys

Staff at London Zoo have helped the leader of a squirrel monkey family keep his seven partners happy ahead of Valentine’s Day with some special treats: heart-themed hessian bags filled with mealworms.

Nine-year-old Nuka and his fellow Bolivian black-capped squirrel monkeys adore the treats. While the keepers ensured there was a bag for each monkey, they wrestled over the mealworms.

ZSL London Zoo’s gates remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic and the absence of paying visitors has caused significant financial pressure on ZSL’s charity zoos.

The international conservation charity, which also runs Whipsnade Zoo in southern England, has called on the public to donate however much they can to keep the zoos functioning during the coronavirus lockdown.

Black-capped squirrel monkeys are polygynandrous, meaning females and males have multiple partners, according to the New England Primate Conservancy.

Guided version of “Justice League” previews dark-style superhero debut

Zach Schneider’s “Director’s Cut” version of “Justice League” announced the official trailer. In the preview, all the members of the Zhenglian appeared one after another. Especially the last appearance, the clown played by Jared Leto , brought a huge surprise.

The whole trailer is full of Zach Schneider ‘s personal style-MV-style shots and editing, full of textured color tones, and Hollywood blockbuster soundtracks, all of which are familiar. The Justice League is the most powerful superhero team in the DC universe, composed of the greatest heroes in the world. They are the staunch protectors of life in the world, and the earth’s first line of defense against internal, external, interdimensional and supernatural threats. Over the years, this team has many members, the founders are Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter. Zhenglian was founded because the heroes knew that if they fight alone, no matter how powerful the individual is, there will eventually be a crisis that they cannot cope with. So they gathered together, worked together to deal with the threats facing the earth, and jointly defend truth, justice and freedom.

Guided version of "Justice League"

In the interview, Director Zha said that the film was crazy and grand. According to previous reports, the new shots in the film will only last about 4 minutes. The other new material comes from the previously edited content. Joe Manganiello stated earlier that a lot of material was left on the floor of the editing room. The implication is that the guide version of “Zhenglian” will re-edit these materials back into the film. Zach Schneider’s version of “Justice League” can be regarded as a public case in the film industry. In 2017, the director of “Justice League” produced a four-hour version, and Warner asked him to cut it to about two hours. After the screening, Zach Schneider’s daughter committed suicide. One and a half months later Zach withdrew from the project, and Joss Whedon took over. A few years later, under the appeal of netizens, actors and movie fans, the edited version of Zach Schneider finally reappeared.

Currently, the film is scheduled to land on the streaming media platform HBO Max on March 18 this year. In addition, Warner also added a theater online program for the film.

US President Joe Biden ‘pauses’ TikTok and WeChat bans

US President Joe Biden has paused legal action against TikTok and WeChat, which could have seen the apps banned in the United States.

While president, Donald Trump had sought to ban both apps, claiming they were a national security threat.

Both companies had taken legal action against the proposed bans.

The new administration has now asked for an “abeyance” – or suspension – of proceedings while it revisits whether the apps really pose a threat.

The delay means both apps can continue to operate in the US while new staff at government agencies “become familiar with the issues in this case”, the legal documents state.

Mr Trump had claimed that the spread in the US of mobile apps developed and owned by Chinese firms threatened “the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States”.

Messaging app WeChat has more than one billion users worldwide, but says the US only accounts for 2% of its revenue.

Video-sharing app TikTok has about 800 million users worldwide, of which 100 million are in the US.

The app’s owner, ByteDance, has been in talks with software company Oracle and supermarket giant Walmart to finalise a deal that would see TikTok’s US assets shifted into a new entity, to avoid a ban in the country.

Reports have suggested the deal could be cancelled if the Biden administration adopts a softer approach towards Chinese apps.
