> Trump found guilty on all charges in hush money trial

A jury in New York on Thursday found former US president Donald Trump guilty on all charges in the hush money case.


Trump was found guilty of all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in a bid to hide hush money payment of 130,000 US dollars to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016, shortly before the presidential election.


Trump became the first former president in US history convicted of a crime.


Trump, who is widely expected to appeal afterwards, said the hush money trial against him was "rigged" and a "disgrace."


As the first former US president to stand a criminal trial and the Republican Party's presumptive presidential nominee in the 2024 general election, Trump also faces three other criminal indictments.


> What makes the yellow and green hues so appealing to bugs?

With the rising temperatures, a curious sight has been observed by many individuals strolling in yellow or green attire — tiny insects materializing on their clothes out of thin air, forming a dense and disconcerting spectacle that could be a nightmare for those with entomophobia.


But what is it about yellow and green hues that make them so appealing to bugs?


This is due to the taxis of insects. Taxis is the movement of insects towards or away from a stimulus. Simply put, the insect will fly in the direction of the environment that attracts it, such as temperature, light, chemicals, etc.


Aphid and thrip are the most common insects that are attracted to yellow color. If you are in bright yellow and go to a place with a high concentration of aphids or thrips, your clothes will soon be covered with these bugs.


Upon spotting these bugs alighting on your garments, it is prudent to promptly shake them off to prevent skin contact and potential allergic reactions. Refrain from swatting the insects with your hands, as this could lead to skin irritation.


If a tiny insect inadvertently enters your eye, it is advisable to avoid rubbing your eyes haphazardly. Instead, flush your eyes with water to dislodge the intruder.


Should these tiny creatures evoke a strong aversion, it may be pragmatic to abstain from donning yellow clothing during the spring and summer seasons, when insect activity peaks.
