Five things you need to know

1. Kanye West ordered to pay $200,000 a month in child support

Kanye West has been ordered to pay his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, US$200,000 every month in child support. Kardashian filed for divorce in 2021 after eight years with West.

2. Baguette added to UNESCO heritage list

UNESCO has added the French baguette to its list of traditions deemed to represent the world's "intangible cultural heritage." The list's credibility is questionable, however, given its failure to include poutine.

3. Aristocrat in Royal household resigns after asking woman where she's 'really from'

A member of the Royal household at Buckingham Palace has resigned after repeatedly asking a black visitor where she was "really from." Ngozi Fulani, who said she was born in the UK, was reportedly asked by the aristocrat where "your people" come from.

4. Twitter ends COVID-19 moderation policy

Twitter has announced an end to its controversial COVID-19 moderation policy. The social media firm said it will no longer enforce its coronavirus "misinformation" rules, which have been strongly criticized for penalizing discussion – sometimes between experts – about the virus.

5. More clashes in China

There have been more clashes in China as some citizens continue to express fury at the country's extreme COVID-19 restrictions. Videos posted online show protesters facing off with riot police in the southern city of Guangzhou.

And lastly...

In happier news, scientists have celebrated a breakthrough in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Researchers said a new drug – lecanemab – is the first medicine to successfully fight the debilitating illness.
