The document targets some 1.8 billion euros in funding by that date though one ministry source said this was unlikely. Stellantis, the world's fourth largest carmaker, currently has two gigafactory projects in Europe, in France and in Germany, with overall investments of 5 billion euros. read more"There's a lot of competition... we'll have to offer a strong strategy and a credible team," the ministry source said.

Backer, an avid skier and hiker, began organizing ACC while a college freshman when Donald Trump, who said climate change was a hoax created by the Chinese, became president. Environmentalists accuse Backer's group of obstructing the aggressive climate action they say is needed to save the planet by proposing half-measure market-based solutions instead. TAKING ACTION NOWCritics say the incremental efforts of conservative groups like ACC could delay progress on the urgent steps needed to curb climate change. "We have the technology to fight climate change today. But for now staunch Republican support for the drilling and mining industries still looms over conservative efforts on climate.

The other two top quarterback prospects - Justin Fields and Mac Jones - were selected 11th, by the Philadelphia Eagles, and 15th by the New England Patriots, respectively. The NFL Draft continues on Friday.

Apple logo is seen on the Apple store at The Marche Saint Germain in Paris, France July 15, 2020. REUTERS/Gonzalo FuentesAustralia's competition watchdog said on Wednesday regulation may be required to address the significant market power app stores owned by Alphabet's Google (GOOGL.O) and Apple (AAPL.O) have if they do not take steps to assuage concerns. The global dominance of Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store has been criticised by some app makers for mandatory revenue sharing payments and strict inclusive rules by both companies. "There is a window of opportunity for Apple and Google themselves to take steps to improve outcomes for app developers and consumers." Sims said the ACC would look at changes of laws in other countries and other proposals, but "regulation may be required if Apple and Google fail to take steps to address the concerns identified."

(CNN) As Maya Gabeira carves a white ripple across the face of a 73-foot wave, two thoughts flash through her mind. "It felt super, super, super fast," Brazilian big-wave surfer Gabeira tells CNN Sport as she recalls the sensations of riding that wave. The accident occurred when Gabeira came off what was at that point the biggest wave she had ever surfed. "As a result, judging had to span the entire history of the sport, evaluating all potential world record rides up until that point ... Measuring the world's biggest waves is a complicated process.

UPDATE 1-Atlantia investors approve demerger of motorway assets

Atlantia said in a statement the spin-off was backed by shareholders representing 99.7% of the share capital present at the meeting. Atlantia, controlled by Italy’s Benetton family, is in the crosshairs since the 2018 deadly bridge collapse. The Italian government has threatened to strip Autostrade of its lucrative motorway concession, putting the future of the unit in doubt. In parallel, Atlantia is pressing on with an alternative plan to relinquish control of Autostrade through the demerger approved on Friday and a proposed listing. Atlantia would then transfer the remaining 55% stake in Autostrade to ACC and receive in return ACC shares.

(CNN) The discovery of important new coronavirus variants in the UK and South Africa began with a bet of a bottle of wine. Tulio de Oliveira, a professor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, and his team identified a coronavirus variant there. That day, Rambaut tweeted : "The hint to look for N501Y came from @Tuliodna who was tracking this mutation in South Africa." These variants were found in South Africa and the UK, but it's not clear where they began. Watching other countries, like the UK and South Africa, excel at genomic sequencing can be hard, Bedford said.

John Wolford might finally be able to delete his LinkedIn profile after the NFL player made an historic debut as the starting quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The former Wake Forest quarterback was undrafted and embarking on a career in finance — until the Jets called, that is. With that game, Wolford made history as the first-ever quarterback to make his first career start in a team's final game of the season with the playoffs on the line. Now, Wolford's initial success as the Rams' quarterback might even lead to another career first: a start in a playoff game. For now, though, Wolford's LinkedIn profile lists him as a "Professional Athlete" and "Quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams."

With Covid-19 linked to heart muscle inflammation known as myocarditis, doctors are concerned about patients returning to physical activity safely. Exercising with myocarditis can lead to irregular heartbeats and sudden cardiac death, a well-documented worry with athletes. Cardiac injury is quite common and prevalent among sicker patients who are hospitalized with Covid-19 infection. Heart risk unclear in milder Covid casesOverall, the recommendations endorse physician consultations and heart screenings — using electrocardiograms, echocardiograms and troponin blood tests — for athletes who had moderate to severe Covid-19. “We still don’t know the prevalence of cardiac injury in athletes or other individuals who are either asymptomatic or who have only mild Covid-19 symptoms,” Kim said.

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India’s antitrust body on Wednesday conducted raids at offices of UltraTech Cement and two subsidiaries of the world’s largest cement maker LafargeHolcim, two sources close to the matter told Reuters. Searches were also conducted at Indian company Shree Cement Ltd, a third source said. None of the Indian cement companies responded to Reuters requests for a comment. India’s commerce minister Piyush Goyal last year told parliament the CCI was examining complaints of cartelisation by cement companies. In 2012, the CCI imposed a total penalty of $1.1 billion on several cement companies for colluding to under-use their plants and create an artificial shortage of cement.
