Carmakers get inventive as global chip crisis bites
  + stars: | 2021-11-26 | by ( Christina Amann | ) www.reuters.com   time to read: +5 min
The German maker of Mercedes-Benz cars has set up a direct line of communication with all chip suppliers, including wafer producers in Taiwan, he said at the IAA auto show in September. Chip suppliers need to be treated differently given their strategic importance to the industry, said Stefan Bratzel from the Center for Automotive Management. "You have seen the problems that arise when you treat the chip companies like other suppliers and stop the calls," he said. McKinsey's Burkacky said carmakers should consider direct investments in production, or longer contracts with terms of more than 18 months. General Motors (GM.N) has said it will work with chip manufacturers like Qualcomm (QCOM.O), STM (STM.BN) and Infineon (IFXGn.DE) to develop microcontrollers that combine several functions previously controlled by individual chips.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has contended that the change “has to be decided at state level, according to state law,” during a recent appearance on WNYC’s Brian Lehrer show. But the Council’s legal staff, as well as voting rights experts, say that the bill is legal, and that no federal or state law bars New York City from expanding the right to vote in local elections. The state explicitly confers voting rights to citizens but does not deny those rights to noncitizens. If the legislation passes as expected, the New York City Board of Elections would issue a separate voter registration form for green card holders and other noncitizens who have the right to work. At the polls, those voters would fill out a ballot that only has New York City offices on it.

The world's supply chain — already lengthy and tangled in the United States — is continuing to bear the brunt of surging consumer demand, labor shortages and overseas manufacturing delays, which has led to higher transportation costs and inflation. David Ozgo, chief economist for the Distilled Spirits Council, said glass shortages are being felt throughout the sector, whether it's tequila or vodka or whiskey. Pivoting to new suppliersCastle & Key distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, is among the many distillers that have pivoted glass suppliers in the face of supply chain woes. "The preferred method typically would be sea freight," Peterson said, adding that sea freight costs had tripled during the pandemic.Since then, the distillery has shifted to a supplier in Guadalajara, Mexico, that delivered orders via rail. "Since the transition, we've been able to have a steady supply of glass," Peterson said.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Cadell Walker rushed to get her 9-year-old daughter Solome vaccinated against Covif-19 — not just to protect her but to help stop the coronavirus from spreading and spawning even more dangerous variants. “The only way to really beat Covid is for all of us collectively to work together for the greater good.”Scientists agree. That effort got a lift with 28 million U.S. kids 5 to 11 years old now eligible for child-sized doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. But some experts say children played a significant role this year spreading contagious variants such as alpha and delta. Getting kids vaccinated could make a real difference going forward, according to estimates by the Covid-19 Scenario Modeling Hub, a collection of university and medical research organizations that consolidates models of how the pandemic may unfold.

Yet, while politicians and business leaders routinely tout their commitment to the energy transition, the world's fossil fuel dependency remains on track to get even worse. Earlier this year, the influential International Energy Agency published the world's first comprehensive roadmap to building a global energy sector with net-zero emissions by 2050. What's more, while the total amount of renewable energy that's available is growing, it is still lower than the increase in global energy demand overall. "The energy transition will not be realized with start-ups alone," he added. To be sure, all of these examples are already evident — and at a time when the global energy mix is still dominated by fossil fuels.

Driven by my interest in the cultures and traditions of my home state of Kentucky, I photographed my first tobacco harvest eight years ago. Tobacco — the product shown in these photographs is used in cigarettes — is an agricultural product unlike any other. Before 1865, enslaved workers were a major source of labor in Kentucky’s tobacco fields. (North-central Kentucky relied on slavery more than any other region in the state.) As a photojournalist, I’ve long felt that the men who perform this work deserve to be seen, and their labor acknowledged.

Budhrani and Konevsky listed four proof-of-stake blockchain protocols that retail investors are buying right now. US crypto miningIn 2021, the US surpassed China in crypto mining market share for the first time, after Beijing moved to ban digital currencies. But the PrimeBlock executives said they believe bitcoin mining is now out of reach for smaller players like retail investors and hobbyists. "I think we are beyond the point where hobbyists could participate directly in bitcoin mining," Budhrani said. "Retail investors are trying to generate significantly higher yields than they would if they invested in a regular savings account."

"COVID-19 presents a severe risk to public health in this Circuit and throughout the nation," the doctors' association said in the filing. The doctors' association said Covid vaccines are safe and highly effective, and provide the most effective way to protect workers from infection. "The more workers who get vaccinated, the closer we are to slowing the spread of the virus and creating a safer environment," the doctors' association told the court. The AMA filed as a friend of the court to provide its expertise, saying it has "an interest in providing evidence-based guidance on public health issues." The group included the AMA, the American College of Physicians, the National Hispanic Medical Association, the National League for Nursing, the National Medical Association and the American Public Health Association.

Dr. Oz has reportedly been making early moves to launch a potential Senate bid in Pa., per Politico. A state GOP strategist said that overall, the response to Oz's entry to the race "has been 'LOL.'" However, according to a Politico report, Dr. Oz is looking to potentially jump into Pennsylvania's 2022 Senate race to succeed two-term Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, and he's already reportedly scouting the vote-rich Philadelphia suburbs for a home. "There's no one who thinks the solution to the Sean Parnell issue is Dr. Oz," the strategist added. A top GOP aide in the state told Politico that Parnell's ongoing legal issues "kind of opened the door to other candidates considering jumping in."

A group of state attorneys general are investigating the photo-sharing platform Instagram and its effects on children and young adults, saying its parent company Facebook — now called Meta Platforms — ignored internal research about the physical and mental health dangers it posed to young people. The investigation is led by a bipartisan coalition of attorneys general from California, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Vermont. It follows damning newspaper reports, first by The Wall Street Journal, based on the company’s own research that found that the company knew about the harms Instagram can cause teenagers — especially teen girls — when it comes to mental health and body image issues. “For too long, Meta has ignored the havoc that Instagram is wreaking on the mental health and well-being of our children and teens,” California Attorney General Rob Bonta said. The lawsuit by the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System claims that Facebook buried inconvenient findings about how the company has managed those algorithms as well as the steps it said it was taking to protect the public.

A new Quinnipiac poll released on Friday found that Americans have a dim view of the nation's highest judicial body. More than 6 in 10 of respondents said the Supreme Court is motivated primarily by politics, whereas only 32% said it's motivated by the law. The court, which saw three justices nominated and confirmed by former President Donald Trump, now holds a 6-3 conservative majority. Even so, Republicans largely agree with their Democrats on the state of the court; 56% of Republicans said the court is driven mostly by politics. Justice Stephen Breyer, a liberal, recently published a new book and gave several news interviews in which he argues that the Supreme Court remains a nonpartisan institution.

The number of Americans who have more than $100,000 in student debt is greater than the population of Utah. Despite well-publicized stories of billionaire college dropouts, a college education remains the most powerful tool for upward mobility. Today, roughly 1 in 10 college students report that they've attempted suicide. Black college students are almost twice as likely to attempt suicide as their white peers. Canceling all student debt is a bad idea, rife with inequity and moral hazard.

A bipartisan group of state attorneys general said on Thursday they had opened an investigation into Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, for promoting its social media app Instagram while knowing of mental and emotional harms caused by the service. At least 10 states are involved in the investigation, including California, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Tennessee and Vermont, as well as the District of Columbia. Maura Healey, the Massachusetts attorney general and one of the leaders of the investigation, said the states were examining whether the company’s actions violated state consumer protection laws and put the public at risk. “Facebook, now Meta, has failed to protect young people on its platforms and instead chose to ignore or, in some cases, double down on known manipulations that pose a real threat to physical and mental health — exploiting children in the interest of profit,” Ms. Healey said.

State officials from California to Maine are telling or allowing their adult residents to get a Covid-19 vaccine booster, bucking guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to reserve the shots for the elderly and other high-risk groups. Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, New Mexico, Vermont and West Virginia are promoting the widespread rollout of boosters for any fully vaccinated adult. "Data indicates that the effectiveness of the vaccine deteriorates over time, and so that's the reason for the booster," Arkansas Gov. More than 247,000 Arkansas residents have received an additional dose as of Thursday, according to the state's online Covid-19 dashboard. Over 53,400 West Virginia residents have gotten their booster doses, the state's Department of Health and Human Resources reported Thursday.

New York (CNN Business) A bipartisan group of 10 state attorneys general have launched an investigation into Meta, the social media company formerly known as Facebook, focused on the potential harms of its Instagram platform on children and teens. The announcement follows extensive reporting on a trove of internal documents leaked by whistleblower Frances Haugen . She added that the coalition hopes to "get to the bottom of this company's engagement with young users, identify any unlawful practices, and end these abuses for good." Meta FB spokesperson Andy Stone said in a statement that the allegations made by the attorneys general are false and said they "demonstrate a deep misunderstanding of the facts." He also noted that the company plans to launch features to help teens regulate their use of Instagram, such as a "Take a Break" reminder , which was announced in October amid intense scrutiny.

REUTERS/Thomas WhiteWASHINGTON, Nov 18 (Reuters) - A bipartisan coalition of U.S. state attorneys general said on Thursday it has opened a probe into Facebook, now known as Meta Platforms (FB.O), for promoting its subsidiary Instagram to children despite potential harms. The investigation, involving at least nine states, comes at a time when Facebook is under scrutiny over its approach to children and young adults. The attorneys general are investigating whether the company violated consumer protection laws and put young people at risk, they said in emailed statements. In September, the company said it was pausing its plans for a version of Instagram for kids, amid growing opposition to the project. States involved in the investigation include Nebraska, Massachusetts, California, Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee and Vermont, New York and New Jersey.

The number of overdose deaths rose 29 percent, from 78,056 from April 2019 to April 2020, to 100,306 in the following 12 months. Drug overdose deaths went down in just four states: Delaware, New Hampshire, New Jersey and South Dakota. South Dakota had a nearly 20 percent decrease in overdose deaths, the greatest by far. Drug overdose deaths increased nearly 140 percent from 2000 to 2014. Overdose deaths decreased slightly from 2017 to 2018, giving experts hope that the nation was past its peak, but deaths began trending upward again the following year.
