TEL AVIV — Scientists say they have discovered a new kind of early human after studying pieces of fossilized bone dug up at a site used by a cement plant in central Israel. "It enables us to make new sense of previously found human fossils, add another piece to the puzzle of human evolution, and understand the migrations of humans in the old world." The study said the Nesher Ramla resembled pre-Neanderthal groups in Europe. What they did match, May said, were a small number of enigmatic human fossils found elsewhere in Israel, dating back even earlier, that anthropologists had never been able to place. The Nesher Ramla fossils “look like something on a lineage heading toward Neanderthal," said Eric Delson, a paleoanthropologist at Lehman College in New York who was not involved in the study.

NeXtWind buys three German onshore wind parks, looks for more
  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( Vera Eckert | ) sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Investment firm NeXtWind said on Friday it had bought three onshore wind parks in northern Germany with a combined capacity of 70 megawatts (MW), a first step in its plan to invest in maturing German wind power assets. The company aims to extend the life of green power assets, where subsidies are ending, and, where possible, raise their capacity. NeXtWind plans to triple the sites’ current annual output to around 300 gigawatt hours (GWh) a year by between 2024 and 2026. The turbines’ output will be marketed under fixed price deals called power purchase agreements (PPAs), which are becoming popular among utilities’ trading arms and corporate consumers keen on becoming greener. By 2025, up to 16 GW of German green power capacity will lose subsidy status under 20-year fixed price guarantees that are being replaced with an auction-based system.

WASHINGTON — Vice President Kamala Harris, after weeks of pressure from her political opponents, will visit the U.S.-Mexico border Friday, as part of her role addressing the root causes of migration. "[Harris' trip to the border] is really about building on the work that she has been doing. Republicans criticized Harris' decision to visit El Paso rather than other parts of the state like, the Rio Grande Valley, which see significantly more border crossings. Although partisan politics are likely to hang over Harris' trip Friday, she will also be forced to confront major policy issues. Rohini Kosoglu, domestic policy adviser to the vice president and one of Harris' longest serving aides, said that Harris "has spent her career fighting for immigrants."

Adding perky jobs data to the mix could change that picture, markets fear. Analysts expect the economy to add 600,000 jobs in June - the largest monthly gain in three months – up from a gain of 559,000 jobs in May. The U.S. Fed has shifted to a hawkish bias. Some mid-cap deals pulled stock market debuts recently: Marex Spectron in London, PHE Holdings in Paris and Primafrio in Madrid. But Nordgold aborting its debut might be the first casualty of expected central bank tightening as the hawkish Fed pushed gold 6% lower.

President Biden tapped Ms. Harris to lead diplomatic efforts aimed at stemming the flow of migrants and to improve access in the U.S. to voting. People close to Ms. Harris acknowledge that she has made some high-profile missteps in her first few months, at times overshadowing what they see as her accomplishments. A spokeswoman for the vice president declined to comment. Asked in a television interview earlier this month why she hadn’t visited the border, Ms. Harris noted that she also hadn’t been to Europe. She added: “I’m not discounting the importance of the border.” Some said Ms. Harris appeared to equate the two places and minimize the seriousness of the border situation.

U.S. stock futures edged higher Friday, putting the S&P 500 on track to close out its best week in more than two months amid renewed confidence in the global economic expansion. Futures for the S&P 500 ticked up less than 0.1% a day after the broad stocks gauge posted a record closing high for the 30th time in 2021. Stocks have bounced back, pushing the S&P 500 up 2.4% through Thursday, after stumbling when the Federal Reserve signaled a more hawkish stance on rising inflation last week. “It is natural that you’ll see very mini wobbles [in stocks] from time to time,” Mr. Redha added. “But the fundamental support—that things are improving and the numbers are getting better—is going to dominate that.”

The prospect of a rising tide of climate litigation cases against heavy emitting businesses comes shortly after a landmark courtroom defeat for Royal Dutch Shell. INA FASSBENDER | AFP | Getty ImagesSince the turn of the century, more than 2,000 climate litigation cases were found to have been filed in a trend that is widely expected to have global implications for carbon-intensive companies. Nonetheless, it is the Dutch court ruling against Shell that is thought to have emboldened climate activists into taking on corporates directly. EcocideThe risks of a surging number of climate litigation cases for businesses include a changing regulatory environment, significant reputational damage and the expanding nature of the cases being brought. Among the new arenas of climate litigation risk, analysts say, are fraud and consumer protection liabilities, planning and permitting laws and environmental performance.

Oil prices rose on Friday, heading for a fifth straight week of gains, with demand growth seen outstripping supply on bets that OPEC+ producers will be cautious in returning more output to the market from August. Brent crude futures climbed 7 cents, or 0.1%, to $75.63 a barrel, headed for a 2.9% jump for the week. "(The market) certainly has momentum behind it...It's really in the hands of OPEC+," said Commonwealth Bank commodities analyst Vivek Dhar. That's going to determine where oil prices go," Dhar said.

A growing population in Asia and booming consumerism in industrialised nations make most climate targets very difficult, if not impossible to achieve. read moreThe International Energy Agency, the steward of energy policies in industrialised nations, last month said the world should not develop new oil and gas fields to achieve net zero targets by 2050. But its head Fatih Birol said this week net zero targets were a pipe dream without global consumption patterns changing. So many governments are coming with net zero targets by 2050 and the same year CO2 emissions are growing and it will be the second largest increase in history". [ID:]Birol said the IEA has over 400 milestones of what needs to happen to achieve net zero targets by 2050 and 95% of those milestones should be driven by changes demand not supply.

Stocks have thrived in a favorable backdrop, strategists noted at Schwab's mid-year market outlook. Earnings growth is likely peaking now as stocks crush unusually low year-over-year comps coming off a miserable second quarter 2020, Sonders said. "For now, we've been able to prick some microbubbles without damage to the overall market," Sonders said. Alternative energy stocks screamed higher leading up to the 2020 presidential election, but a rotation back to value-focused traditional energy companies has weighed on green energy stocks. More gains for European stocks are likely, Kleintop said, noting that the Stoxx 600's move higher came even as Europe's vaccination program has lagged that of the US.

LONDON — France and Germany's plans to restart talks with Russia have failed, as a number of other EU leaders remain skeptical about re-engaging with the Kremlin. Now, the German and French leaders would like to follow suit. Speaking on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron said the idea was not to offer concessions to Moscow, but simply to have a dialogue. The 27 EU leaders need to unanimously agree on restarting talks with Russia for such a meeting to take place.

Gibraltar's criminal law had banned abortion in all circumstances, with a maximum punishment in theory of life in prison. The referendum had originally been scheduled for March 2020, but was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Even with the amendment approved on Thursday, the law remains more restrictive than in most of the rest of Europe.

A project centered around the development of a subsea wave energy converter has taken another step forward after its two major constituent parts were joined together at a facility in Scotland. According to a statement from AWS Ocean Energy on Wednesday, the assembly, which it described as "a critical milestone", took place last week. Funding for the £3.4 million ($4.73 million) project has come from Wave Energy Scotland, which is itself funded by the Scottish government. These include Scotland's Orbital Marine Power, which is working on what it describes as the world's most powerful tidal turbine, and Spain-based tidal power firm Magallanes Renovables. Recent figures from Ocean Energy Europe show that only 260 kW of tidal stream capacity was added in Europe last year, while just 200 kW of wave energy was installed.

But there has never been a peace treaty, meaning the Korean War is still technically being fought. There are those that refer to the Korean War as, "the forgotten war" as it did not receive the same kind of attention as did World War II or the Vietnam War. Even now, 70 years later, the Korean War is given less notice than other conflicts and wars in history. The Korean War was the first military action following the end of WWII and the beginning of the Cold War. These numbers made the Korean War known as an exceptionally bloody war, despite the fact that it was relatively short.

TOKYO, June 24 (Reuters) - Some Kansai Electric Power shareholders, including Nordea Asset Management and KLP, say they will back a resolution opposed by the board requiring the Japanese electricity supplier to decarbonise to meet international targets on climate change. The resolution put forward by the City of Kyoto, which owns a stake in Kansai and gave its name to the first international climate change agreement, requires Kansai Electric to stop building new coal plants and to use carbon capture and storage for its existing coal stations, a city official told Reuters earlier. Kansai Electric did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Kansai Electric which serves Osaka and its industrial environs - an area with roughly the same economic output as Mexico - this week restarted an old reactor that had to get special approval to remain in operation.

Launching one of the richest individuals on earth into orbit has proved a leap too far for insurers, who are not ready to price the risk of losing Jeff Bezos or his fellow space travelers. Bezos, Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic did not respond to requests for comment from Reuters on their insurance plans and flight records. NASA astronauts are eligible for government life insurance programs, a NASA spokesperson said in an emailed response. A key question for how the sector develops is whether risks related to tourism fall under space or aviation insurance lines, insurers and brokers told Reuters.
