  • Hi, I'm Carla Zeus.

  • For CNN 10.

  • It looks like a standoff between the Facebook technology company and the Nation of Australia is coming to an end.

  • What happened between them is our first story this Wednesday.

  • Last week, Facebook suddenly prevented Australians from finding or sharing news on the social media platform.

  • This included links and articles for local and international news, and it appeared to be the most restrictive step Facebook has ever taken against publishers of information.

  • At first, Facebook's dramatic block included some fire and emergency services, health agencies, politicians and charities that help victims of violence.

  • The company said these pages were unintentionally affected by its news block and that it would restore them.

  • But why did Facebook stop news sharing in the first place?

  • It all has to do with the disagreement between technology companies and news companies.

  • These two sides both benefit from news that's posted online.

  • Tech companies like Facebook and Google get reliable news content to help fill in their search results and feeds.

  • News companies benefit when people visit their sites after clicking on stories posted through Facebook and Google.

  • But for years, news producers have said that tech companies take unfair advantage of them using news content but not giving the owners of that content much in return.

  • The Australian government got involved in this.

  • It's considering a new law that will require tech companies to pay news companies for their articles and video instead of distributing that content for free.

  • That's why Facebook decided to shut down news in Australia.

  • It fiercely opposes this legislation.

  • Australian officials say Facebook's move was heavy handed, unnecessary and that it came without warning in.

  • The nation's prime minister said that big tech companies think there bigger than governments and that the rules shouldn't apply to them.

  • Facebook said it does not steal news, but that publishers choose to share their stories on the social media platform.

  • It was concerned that if Australia passed a law that required it to pay for news content, other countries would to.

  • Facebook was also worried that it would be forced to pay for news content that people randomly shared on its platform content that Facebook itself had nothing to do with so what changed in the standoff.

  • The company said this week that the Australian government would allow Facebook to keep control over what news information appears on its site.

  • Facebook will also get more time to work out deals with news publishers, so it won't be immediately required to start paying them for content.

  • The tech company now says it will restore news sharing in Australia.

  • President is continuing to descend on the parachute.

  • Mhm 12th trivia.

  • Which of these artists was born in Norway?

  • Johannes Vermeer, Edvard Monk, Vincent Van Gogh or Henri Matisse?

  • Born in Norway in 18 63 was the Expressionist painter Edvard Monk.

  • His best known painting is one of the most famous artworks in the world, and the Scream has a bit of a mystery to it.

  • A tiny message was hidden in the painting.

  • The words read Quote.

  • Can Onley have been painted by a madman who wrote them?

  • As far as the painting goes, art historians believe it was inspired by a walk Monk took around the Norwegian capital of Oslo.

  • He was said to be mentally and physically uneasy at the time.

  • The Scream was first unveiled to the public in 18 95 and some critics didn't like it.

  • They thought the work was troubling and questioned the mental condition of the person who painted it.

  • Curator at the National Museum of Norway say Monk was hurt by this criticism and that he wrote about it in his diary.

  • But the author of The Hidden Message has been less certain.

  • It's faint, unclear and written in pencil on top of the paint, so experts say it was done after the artwork was finished.

  • Some have speculated that a critic vandalized it.

  • But after using infrared technology to examine the madman message and then comparing it to monks, notes and letters, curator is concluded that it was written by Monk himself.

  • They believe he put it there after hearing people criticized the screen.

  • A photographic mystery is our next story today.

  • We may never know how color photographs taken in the U.

  • S.

  • State of Alaska in the mid 20th century made their way onto slides in the Netherlands 50 years later.

  • But two boxes of these color slides were purchased there by a German woman in 2000 and eight, and she thought that if she could Onley get these photographs published somewhere, some of the people in them who are still alive might recognize themselves or their family members.

  • Whoever took these photographs is still unknown, but one by one, the subjects have been coming forward, filling in captions Lost to history.
