“Surprisingly, I felt really sad and angry and frustrated,” said Jehava Brown, 37, a mother of three boys living in Pennsylvania. In addition, studies have shown that Black children are more likely to be physically restrained during emergency room visits and more likely to die after surgery than white children. The Rittenhouse verdict "made me feel hurt, knowing the world hasn’t changed and will not change,” said Tammy, 26, who has a 2-year-old and an 8-year-old step-daughter. “When I started doing my work, it was to create the conditions that allow Black children to have the freedom to simply be,” he said. She said the Rittenhouse verdict made her feel sad for her children, who are a visible minority as Muslims living in Canada.

(CNN Business) Amazon (AMZN) is facing strikes by warehouse workers and delivery drivers across Europe as its busiest weekend of the year begins. Labor unions in Germany, Italy and France are calling for the company to pay its workers fairly and respect their right to join unions. The strikes have been called to coincide with Amazon's annual Black Friday event, which kicks off a four-day shopping bonanza that culminates in Cyber Monday. The action is part of a wider global protest organized by a group called Make Amazon Pay. The international coalition is also demanding that Amazon "pays its fair share of taxes and commits to real environmental sustainability."

The problem raised last week by François Legault, the premier of Quebec, is the lack of successors to Marcel Dionne, Mario Lemieux, Luc Robitaille, Mike Bossy and Guy Lafleur — the five leading goal scorers from Quebec in N.H.L. — about 7 percent of the league’s roughly 721 players, according to statistics parsed by the website QuantHockey. Ontario, with 171 players, far outpaces Quebec and now accounts for the most professionals from one province in the league. But within Canada, the province of Quebec is singing a sad song. A nation — and Quebec considers itself a nation, with a provincial legislature called the Assemblée nationale — turns its lonely eyes to you.

A woman holds a small bottle labeled with a "Coronavirus COVID-19 Vaccine" sticker and a medical syringe in front of displayed Novavax logo in this illustration taken, October 30, 2020. REUTERS/Dado RuvicNov 26 (Reuters) - Novavax Inc (NVAX.O) said on Friday it had started working on a version of its COVID-19 vaccine to target the variant detected in South Africa and would have the shot ready for testing and manufacturing in the next few weeks. The company's COVID-19 shot contains an actual version of the virus' spike protein that cannot cause disease but can trigger the immune system. The vaccine developer said it had started developing a spike protein specifically based on the known genetic sequence of the variant, B.1.1.529. German drugmaker BioNTech SE (22UAy.DE) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ.N) have also said they were testing the effectiveness of their respective COVID-19 vaccines against the new variant.

Countries in Europe as well as the United States and Canada have been among those banning flights arriving from South Africa and several other African nations. “Your responses are just not as good,” Dr. Hatziioannou said. “This virus has seen a lot of antibodies,” Dr. Hatziioannou said. She said that Omicron has many mutations in the same regions of the spike protein pinpointed in their own research. Some monoclonal antibody treatments won’t work against Omicron either, she predicted, because the variant’s spike protein is protected from them.

The EU is set to soon allow young children to get their first shot of a COVID-19 vaccine. Its drug regulator on Thursday recommended approval for Pfizer's vaccine for kids aged five to 11. The companies have said their vaccine, which is called Comirnaty, showed 90.7% efficacy against the coronavirus in a clinical trial of children aged 5 to 11. "The benefits of Comirnaty in children aged 5 to 11 outweigh the risks, particularly in those with conditions that increase the risk of severe COVID-19," the EMA said. Countries will not be able to start rolling out the shots to young children until next month.

Use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the United States has not been as widespread as that of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, and studies have found the Johnson vaccine provides less protection than the other two. The Food and Drug Administration authorized Johnson & Johnson booster shots last month, despite concern among the F.D.A.’s expert advisory panel that data in the company’s application was limited and wasn’t independently verified. experts and committee members argued that recipients of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine needed an additional shot to bolster against severe Covid-19, since that vaccine was less effective than those of Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech. Johnson & Johnson doses have been distributed abroad through Covax, the global vaccine-sharing program, in an effort to bolster immunity in poorer countries, including many in Africa. Many of those shots have been provided through a deal reached in May, under which Johnson & Johnson agreed to sell about 200 million doses to Covax at a discounted rate.

Shares of German cannabis company SynBiotic rose sharply on Thursday shortly after the incoming government pledged to make the drug legal. Led by Lars Muller, SynBiotic wants to use cannabis compounds to treat conditions like chronic pain, stress and sleep issues. "The biggest profiteer [of German cannabis legalization] is my cannabis platform company SynBiotic, which is the only German listed cannabis company — and one of the biggest ones in general," Angermayer said. Alexander Galitsa, an analyst at investment bank Hauck and Aufhauser, wrote in a note to clients on Thursday that the German cannabis market is poised for "explosive growth" in the coming years. Galitsa pointed to studies that suggest cannabis legalization could generate between 3.4 billion euros and 4.7 billion euros of annual tax revenue, while also creating an estimated 27,000 new jobs.

In China, high energy prices have led to power rationing, hurting industry and sparking concern about winter heating supplies. Combined, the United States and China consume nearly 35 million barrels of oil a day, more than a third of global demand. U.S. oil prices hit a seven-year high in late October driving inflation and hitting Biden's approval rating ahead of midterm elections next year. But in the short term, the action by consuming countries is likely to put pressure on oil prices, Yergin said. "This also comes at a time when the supply/demand balance is on a course to improve over the next few months, and this oil deal will add to that.
