REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File Photo(Reuters) - Oracle Corp on Tuesday launched a cloud computing service powered by data center chips from Ampere Computing based on technology from Arm Ltd, the second major cloud company to offer an Arm-based service after Amazon.com’s Amazon Web Services. Until recently, however, almost all the chips cloud services bought came from Intel Corp and Advanced Micro Devices because most business software is written to run on those processors. Oracle on Tuesday joined the fray with chips from Ampere Computing, the company founded by former Intel President Renee James, who also sits on the board of Oracle. “We’re at an inflection point in the industry,” Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, told Reuters in an interview.

Cafe and restaurant terraces reopened Wednesday after a six-month coronavirus shutdown deprived residents of the essence of French life — sipping coffee and wine with friends. French President Emmanuel Macron and French Prime Minister Jean Castex drink coffee at a cafe terrace in Paris on Wednesday. Some French cafe and restaurant owners have spent days preparing for Wednesday's milestone, even though rain is forecast for large swaths of the country, including Paris. Restaurants are can fill only 50% of their outdoor seating areas and put no more than six people at a table. At least that's what Jérôme Haeffelin, the owner of Le Ponthieu, a Right Bank bistro in a crowded district of Paris, hopes.

Biden Faces Russian Test Over Aid in Syria

WASHINGTON—The Biden administration is bracing for a showdown with Russia over the delivery of United Nations aid to millions of Syrians outside the control of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a flow that Moscow is poised to block in July. At stake is the U.N.’s use of the Bab al-Hawa border crossing between Syria and Turkey, which the world body has used to send about 1,000 truckloads of aid a month to a region in northwest Syria with a population of more than four million. The U.S. and its allies say the closure of the border to the U.N. would put civilians in jeopardy, especially the 2.7 million people in the area who have been displaced by the conflict. The U.N. also has just started its Covid-19 vaccination campaign in the area, an effort not easily replaced by another organization. “It’s clear that the stakes are quite high,” said a U.S. official at the U.N. “We’ll be actively engaged both with like-minded countries who are standing with us on this and with others who have expressed some skepticism.”

Takes Aim at Jobless Benefits President Biden announced efforts aimed at making it easier for employers to hire new workers and to help more people take jobs. On Monday, President Biden gave an update on the economic outlook for the country after a disappointing monthly jobs report on Friday. “We’ll insist that the law is followed with respect to benefits, but we’re not going to turn our backs on our fellow Americans,” Mr. Biden said. President Biden said on Monday that the government has mitigated any impact the pipeline hack might have on the U.S. fuel supply. “To all transgender Americans watching at home, especially the young people: You’re so brave,” Mr. Biden said in his speech.

* Would-be workers remain concerned about health risks amid a pandemic still claiming about 700 American lives a day. * Some younger workers are finding jobs in new fields, shrinking the labor pool for the industries they left behind. After the last downturn, Fed surveys showed employers grousing about worker shortages in 2012, when the unemployment rate was above 8%. When compensation began to rise in earnest several years later, workers flooded back to the labor market. “What we saw was that labor supply generally showed up,” Fed Chair Jerome Powell said last month.

Among other things, that may mean a longer wait for the vehicle a customer buys, as well as fewer incentives and other discounts. “The pandemic has just changed the game,” said David Cole, chairman-emeritus of the Center for Automotive Research. Almost every automaker will be changing business practices “to hedge against unexpected situations, whether an earthquake or a pandemic,” Cole said. It has been accepted wisdom that retailers need an average of 60 to 70 days’ worth of vehicles in stock. Ford last week warned it could lose more than 1 million vehicles originally scheduled for production this year.

(Reuters) -General Motors Co and Chief Executive Mary Barra were forced by the semiconductor supply-chain crunch to slash production and sell fewer vehicles at higher prices. The current chip supply crisis is far from the ideal way for automakers to achieve a more profitable balance of supply and demand. Barra echoed other auto executives when she said the chip shortage will worsen in the second quarter before improving in the second half of the year. GM stuck to earlier forecasts that the chip shortage could shave $1.5 billion to $2 billion from this year’s profit. Stellantis, echoing GM as well as Ford last week, said second-quarter production would suffer and the chip shortage would linger into 2022.

TOKYO (Reuters) -A senior Japanese ruling party official said cancelling this year’s Olympics in Tokyo remains an option if the coronavirus crisis becomes too dire, as a fourth wave of infections surges less than 100 days from the planned start of the Games. “If the Olympics were to spread infection, then what are the Olympics for?” he added. “Canceling Olympics” was trending on Twitter in Japan on Thursday with more than 35,000 tweets from users. “If this person says it, Olympics cancellation looks like a reality,” tweeted @marumaru_clm in reference to Nikai. Olympic organisers, Japan’s national Olympic committee and the Tokyo government did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The proposal puts new restrictions on how election officials can distribute absentee ballots and how voters can cast them, limiting the use of drop boxes, for example. “These bills contain some of the most outlandish voter suppression ideas that Michigan has ever seen,” said State Senator Paul Wojno, the lone Democrat on the Michigan Senate’s elections committee. The Republican push to tighten Michigan’s election laws comes as the state faces a major spike in coronavirus cases, with the number nearing the peak in late December. Ms. Whitmer, who declined to be interviewed, on Friday called for a two-week pause in youth sports, in-person school and indoor dining and asked President Biden for more vaccine. Republican opposition to Ms. Whitmer in Michigan has intensified during the pandemic.

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese bank lending rose 6.3% in March from a year earlier, data showed on Monday, as restaurants and hotels sought more loans to weather the hit from the COVID-19 pandemic. Deposits held by banks were also up 9.9% in March as households continued to save rather than spend on uncertainty over the pandemic’s fallout, the Bank of Japan data showed. The introduction of a new scheme that offers incentives to banks that channel more funds to pandemic-hit firms has yet to have a major impact on bank lending, a BOJ official said. “We’ll likely seen the impact appear ahead, and hope the scheme will help smooth financial intermediation,” the official told a briefing. At its policy meeting in March, the BOJ adopted a new interest paying scheme for financial institutions that tap its cash coffers to boost loans.

BERLIN (Reuters) - German hotel owners are fuming over an extension to measures that bar citizens from going on vacation in their own country but allow them to travel abroad, as the industry struggles to survive the coronavirus lockdown. “People’s patience is increasingly running out, and pandemic fatigue is increasingly getting to them,” BTW secretary general Michael Rabe said. German airline Lufthansa said it will work with travel industry partners to offer tests to travellers returning from Mallorca. German aviation association BDL welcomed the no-quarantine rule but said compulsory testing of passengers from non-risk destinations should be an exception only during the Easter holiday season. On Mallorca, business owners were happy with the decision, but some locals worried about tourists spreading infection.

In written testimony released Thursday as part of her Senate confirmation process, Janet L. Yellen, Mr. Biden’s nominee for Treasury secretary, reiterated the urgency of renewed aid. “Unemployment remains troublingly high, and millions of families are facing hunger or the risk of eviction,” Ms. Yellen, a former Federal Reserve chair, told a questioner. “Additional relief is needed to strengthen the economy, address our public health challenge and provide relief to communities that have been hardest hit.”Republicans have already registered resistance to another big spending plan. “We’re looking at another spending blowout,” Senator Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania said at Ms. Yellen’s confirmation hearing on Tuesday. Democrats are also leaving open the possibility of using a process called budget reconciliation, requiring only a simple majority for approval, to push legislation through the Senate.

Top Republicans, including Vice President Mike Pence, were not there to see Trump depart. Shortly after Trump finished his remarks, Biden left the presidential guest house in Washington on his way to church, where he was joined by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House of Representatives Republican leader Kevin McCarthy. The violence prompted the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Trump last week for an unprecedented second time. The trial could serve as an early test of Biden’s promise to foster a renewed sense of bipartisanship in Washington.
