"If there is a no-confidence vote on Monday, we will work after that too.

Shell Gets Greener, Even as Climate Advocates Say, ‘Go Faster’

MINETY, England — On a clearing at the edge of a farm field, 40 big rectangular boxes the size of shipping containers sit behind a tall fence. Wired together, these units will form Europe’s largest battery, the operators say, able to pump out powerful bursts of electricity to offset fluctuations in the power grid when ebbing winds or cloudy skies slow the generation of renewable electricity. As more power comes from wind and solar, the need for giant batteries will grow. One of the companies behind this 40-million-pound (about $56 million) project is Royal Dutch Shell. Shell’s foray into the English countryside in Minety, about 90 miles west of London, provides a clue to that future.

Its capital city of Tallinn is home to NATO's cyber defense hub , the Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. The attack made Estonia realize that it needed to start treating cyber threats in the same way as physical attacks. It set up a "data embassy" in Luxembourg, a super secure data center that contains backups in case of an attack on Estonian territory. The country also became an early adopter of blockchain technology and established a new cyber unit within its voluntary Estonia Defense League. The NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence in Tallinn conducts research and training on cyber security.

Philippines raises cap on health professionals going abroad
  + stars: | 2021-06-18 | by ( ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
The Philippines, one of the world's biggest sources of nurses, reached its annual cap of 5,000 health worker deployments late last month. That means another 1,500 nurses and healthcare staff can work abroad, according to the labour ministry. Health workers under government-to-government labour deals, such as that with the United Kingdom, are exempted from the new cap. Roughly 17,000 Filipino nurses signed overseas work contracts in 2019, but the Philippines put a temporary halt on that in 2020, to shore-up its health sector as coronavirus hospitalisations rose sharply. Jocelyn Andamo, secretary general of the Filipino Nurses United, said the additional 1,500 was frustrating.

The company had worked with trend forecasters and talked with designers, but history was its best guide. Based on previous sales, the retailer was confident that shoppers would be seeking out deals on office wear like ties, dresses, heels and handbags. Months later, the world had rearranged itself in a way no trend forecasters could have predicted. And it created a tool so that customers could build lists of products they wanted from the sale before it even started. This was always a piece of the puzzle for many chains, but it became central to their survival in the past year.

In October 1864, just before President Abraham Lincoln was elected to a second term, a large group of Black activists met in Syracuse, N.Y. Most were from the free states, but a handful made the trip from slave states like Tennessee, Virginia and Florida. It founded a National Equal Rights League to demand “a recognition” of Black Americans’ rights as citizens of the United States. Others recognized that the nation was at a crossroads and that abolition would mean little without federal protections for Black Americans. But today’s conservatives echo their 19th-century predecessors when they justify federal inaction on voting rights with arguments about states’ rights and spurious claims of electoral corruption.

Maybe it’s genetic, or athletic—a dancer’s reward for the toll that dancing takes on the body. Her performance won her a supporting-actress Oscar and turned her career around, though ever so slowly. Some of the most fascinating—and dismaying—parts of Ms. Riera’s film are devoted to the characters Ms. Moreno portrayed long before any turnaround was conceivable, let alone possible. If there’s an award for straight-to-the-camera performance, Ms. Moreno’s appearance here should win it by acclamation. (The film does itself a disservice with the gratuitous inclusion of scenes in which Ms. Moreno is watching Christine Blasey Ford’s televised Senate testimony alleging sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh.)

Wise, an online money-transfer service, kicked off plans to list on the London Stock Exchange , taking advantage of surging investor interest in financial technology companies. More than 10 million customers use Wise’s money-transfer service. It aims to make it easier and cheaper to move money across borders and into different currencies than with a bank. “We were both sick of losing money to our banks,” Mr. Käärmann told journalists Thursday about why he and Mr. Hinrikus started Wise in 2011. Wise charged an average price of 0.68% of the amount of money transferred in the first quarter of 2021. Credit cards and banks have traditionally charged several percentage points for similar transactions.

LONDON — British financial technology firm Wise said Thursday it expects to go public on the London Stock Exchange through a direct listing. Wise, which was formerly known as TransferWise, said it was seeking a direct listing rather than an initial public offering. Direct listings allow firms to go public without raising any fresh capital. "Wise is used to challenging convention, and this listing is no exception," said Kristo Kaarmann, CEO and co-founder of Wise. A direct listing allows us a cheaper and more transparent way to broaden Wise's ownership, aligned with our mission."

But he added: “We think it’s unlikely they would materially affect the underlying inflation dynamics that the economy has had for a quarter of a century. In 2015, Mr. Powell supported a decision to begin raising interest rates to prevent inflation from taking off. The last of these, especially, came to look like a mistake within days, and Mr. Powell soon reversed course. So were the people who routinely predicted that an outburst of problematic inflation was right around the corner. The risk with this approach is that Mr. Powell is, in effect, fighting the last battle — applying the lessons of those episodes to a different economic environment.

This documentary credits her turn to comedy, television and stage acting for liberating her from her exotic sexpot persona. It’s almost hard to believe that the radiant Moreno we see in the film — who at 89 continues to epitomize that ineffable and rare quality we call star power — was ever restrained. Though this contrast is precisely what makes her story so enthralling and vital. Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for ItRated PG-13 for mature thematic content, suggestive material and some strong language including a sexual reference. In theaters.

Former Facebook sales chief Carolyn Everson is in talks with Instacart for a top post, sources say. Instacart has been vying for digital ad dollars and has already grabbed a top ad sales exec from Amazon. Everson exited Facebook last week after chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg shook up the ad sales division naming Marne Levine as chief business officer, a new position with responsibility for advertising. Its ad business is forecast to hit $1 billion by 2022. Should the firm sign Everson, Instacart would have two of tech's top ad sales executives under one roof.

A healthcare worker takes inventory of doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine, in Buenos Aires, Argentina June 4, 2021. REUTERS/Matias Baglietto/File PhotoBUENOS AIRES, June 17 (Reuters) - A coalition of nine Argentine port worker unions will go on a nationwide 24-hour strike starting at midnight to press for vaccinations against the coronavirus, the labor groups said in a statement on Thursday. Strikes last month paralyzed shipping from Argentina's main grains port hub of Rosario, which handles about 80% of the country's agricultural exports. The strikes are occurring during high export season, as corn and soy, the country's two main cash crops, get harvested. Agriculture is Argentina's main source of export dollars needed to replenish central bank reserves strained by efforts to pull the country out of a three-year recession while grappling with the pandemic.

Moreno is in the select group EGOT winners -- people who have earned an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. (She also remains outspoken, having waded into the controversy over "In the Heights" while appearing on Stephen Colbert's program.)
