The IOC confirmed in a tweet Sunday that Tsimanouskaya “is with the authorities at Haneda airport.”“She has told us she feels safe,” it said. She is with the authorities at Haneda airport and is currently accompanied by a staff member of Tokyo 2020. The National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Belarus and the Belarusian Consulate in Tokyo did not immediately respond to requests for comment. "Some of our girls did not fly here to compete in the 4x400-meter relay because they didn't have enough doping tests," Tsimanouskaya told Reuters at the airport. On Sunday, two Belarusian photographers were doing a photo shoot at the Tokyo Big Sight elevated train station with a young woman.

The CDC says vaccinated people should mask up indoors again as cases of the Delta variant surge. A study suggests that transmission among vaccinated people could lead to new variants that evade vaccines. According to research published Friday in the journal Scientific Reports, vaccinated people — counterintuitively — play a key role in that risk. But according to a CDC study released Friday, vaccinated people may transmit the Delta variant just as easily as the unvaccinated. Scott Eisen/Getty ImagesThe new study supports the recent CDC guidance that vaccinated people should wear masks in areas of high transmission.

FRANKFURT (Reuters) -German laboratory group Amedes said on Friday it will be acquired by a consortium that includes Canada’s Omers Infrastructure and Goldman Sachs Asset Management for an undisclosed sum. The deal could be valued at 1.5 billion euros ($1.8 billion) including debt, two people close to the matter told Reuters. Antin bought Amedes in 2015 from buyout group General Atlantic at a valuation of about 800 million euros. Amedes has annual core earnings of more than 100 million euros. The sale to Omers Infra implies a significantly higher multiple for Amedes.

British Pound Sterling banknotes are seen in a box at the Money Service Austria company's headquarters in Vienna, Austria, November 16, 2017. Broad dollar weakness, which was exacerbated by a dovish Federal Reserve meeting this week, has also helped sterling. At 1400 GMT, the pound was little changed at $1.3956 , near the one-month high of $1.3983 reached on Thursday. The pound has gained around 1.4% against the dollar this week -- making it one of the top performing major currencies.

Euro zone economy expands 2% in second quarter, rebounding from recession
  + stars: | 2021-07-30 | by ( Silvia Amaro | ) www.cnbc.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
The euro zone economy expanded in the second quarter of this year as various governments tiptoed around their economic reopening, preliminary data has shown. The region contracted 0.3% in the first quarter and 0.6% in the final quarter of 2020 — two consecutive quarters of economic contraction are defined as a technical recession. Compared with the same quarter a year ago, the latest GDP reading represents a 13.7% increase. Stateside, the latest gross domestic product numbers came in at an annualized 6.5% for the second quarter, well below market expectations, but slightly higher than the previous three-month period. Overall, the European Central Bank expects GDP in the euro zone to reach 4.6% by the end of the year, followed by 4.7% next year.

Although Indonesia does not have any official territorial disputes with China, it is increasingly worried by Chinese activities in its waters, particularly in the Natuna Sea, the southern portion of the South China Sea. After recently losing a submarine, Indonesia's navy is hoping to increase its submarine fleet from 12 to as many as 36 boats. China's navy is recovering the Indonesian submarine that sank in the Java Sea earlier this year. Indonesian submarine KRI Nanggala-402 was lost with 53 crew members during a training exercise near Bali. But with China's aggressive actions in the South China Sea, Indonesia is increasingly aware of the threat Beijing poses and of the value of the "a free and open Indo-Pacific" that the US and its allies advocate.

(CNN) Vaccination alone won't stop the rise of new variants and in fact could push the evolution of strains that evade their protection, researchers warned Friday. "We found that a fast rate of vaccination decreases the probability of emergence of a resistant strain," the team wrote. "This means the vaccine resistant strain spreads through the population faster at a time when most people are vaccinated." "There is a chance to remove the vaccine resistant mutations from the population," Rella said. "By preventing spread of vaccine resistant strains, you are preventing evolution of this virus," he added.

By 1522 GMT, sterling was 0.5% higher on the day at $1.3869, having hit its highest since June 24 against the dollar. The dollar also fell after Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s remark that rate increases were “a ways away”. On Tuesday, however, the pound surged higher in a seemingly arbitrary move around the daily currency market fix, leaving traders stumped.

This week, the European Union pulled ahead of the United States in total vaccinations, adjusted for population. Major political differences between the United States and Europe set them on divergent paths.

Orcel halts disposal of UniCredit's art collection
  + stars: | 2021-07-28 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
Slideshow ( 2 images )MILAN (Reuters) - Italy’s UniCredit said on Wednesday it was stopping the sale of its art collection, the latest move by new Chief Executive Andrea Orcel to reverse a decision taken by his predecessor Jean Pierre Mustier. UniCredit had announced in February 2019 it would progressively sell local art collections in Italy, Germany and Austria and use the proceeds mainly to fund social impact initiatives. “UniCredit is a pan-European group with an Italian soul where art and culture are at the heart of this country,” Orcel said in a statement. Less than a month after taking the reins at UniCredit, Orcel overhauled the bank’s top management set-up, axing a co-head structure put in place by Mustier in a push to simplify the bank’s business. While Mustier had worked to reduce UniCredit’s exposure to its debt-laden home country, Orcel placed all Italian operations into a new standalone business dubbed UniCredit Italia “to underscore ... the important of our heritage and roots.”($1 = 0.8463 euros)

Tokyo Olympics: Who Leads the Medal Count?

United States U.S. China China Japan Japan Russian O.C. As of Tuesday at 5:15 p.m. Eastern, Japan stood atop the official Olympic medal table, which sorts nations based on their number of gold medals. That’s how much of the world does it, using silver and bronze only to break ties. By another measure, the United States leads because it has the most medals overall (25, at last count). If you care only about golds — using silver and bronze just to break ties — that’s the upper-right corner.

The joint statement was issued by the governments of Austria, Brazil, Colombia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Ecuador, Estonia, Guatemala, Greece, Honduras, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Republic of Korea, and Ukraine, alongside the United States. Last week the United States imposed sanctions on a Cuban security minister and an interior ministry special forces unit for alleged human rights abuses during a crackdown on anti-government protests earlier this month against an economic crisis, the government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and recent curbs on civil rights.

FILE PHOTO: An illustration picture shows a pack of Marlboro cigarettes in a coffee house in Vienna, Austria, May 12, 2017. REUTERS/Leonhard Foeger/Illustration(Reuters) - Tobacco group Philip Morris International will stop selling Marlboro cigarettes in Britain within a decade, its chief executive told here the Daily Mail, in line with the country's wider ambition to stamp out smoking by 2030. Doing its part, Olczak said the Marlboro brand “will disappear” from British store shelves along with its other brands, ending a more than 100-year association with the country. The $153 billion-dollar company sells Marlboro cigarettes outside the United States, after it split off from parent company Altria in 2008. Altria sells Marlboro in the U.S.

Vigili del Fuoco/Handout via REUTERSATHENS, July 26 (Reuters) - Wildfires burned in regions across southern Europe on Monday, fuelled by hot weather and strong winds, as some northern countries cleaned up after a weekend of torrential rain and flooding. Fire service officials said negligence on farms and construction sites had been behind several incidents, many of which were in the southern Peloponnese region. In Lietor, in the central east region of Castilla-La Mancha, more than 2,500 hectares burned during the weekend before being brought under control, authorities said. So far this year, wildfires have burned across 35,000 hectares in Spain, still some way off the 138,000 hectares burned in 2012, the worst year of the past decade.

REUTERS/Yves Herman/File PhotoBRUSSELS, July 26 (Reuters) - France, Spain, Italy and 20 other EU countries may be taken to court for their tardiness in enacting landmark EU copyright rules into national law, the European Commission said on Monday as it asked the group to explain the delays. The copyright rules, adopted two years ago, aim to ensure a level playing field between the European Union's trillion-euro creative industries and online platforms such as Google, owned by Alphabet (GOOGL.O), and Facebook (FB.O). The deadline for enacting the EU rules was June 7. The EU executive also said it had asked France, Spain and 19 other EU countries to explain why they missed a June 7 deadline to enact separate copyright rules for online transmission of radio and TV programmes.

REUTERS/Lisi Niesner/File PhotoPARIS, July 26 (Reuters) - France's foreign ministry said on Monday that Iran was endangering the chance of concluding an accord with world powers over reviving its 2015 nuclear deal if it did not return to the negotiating table soon. "If it continues on this path, not only will it continue to delay when an agreement to lift sanctions can be reached, but it risks jeopardising the very possibility of concluding the Vienna talks and restoring the JCPOA," or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll told reporters in a daily briefing.
