The travel restrictions do not ban flights or apply to U.S. citizens and lawful U.S. permanent residents. "As a precautionary measure until we have more information, I am ordering additional air travel restrictions from South Africa and seven other countries," Biden said in a statement. Amid this rapidly evolving situation, it is critical that U.S. government decisions regarding international travel restrictions and requirements be rooted in science." The United States could add countries to the restriction list if the variant spreads, a senior administration official said. She did not reference the Omicron variant.

REUTERS/Paulo WhitakerBRASILIA, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Brazil's government plans to publish new regulations for fintechs on Friday, following public consultations by the central bank, three sources told Reuters on Thursday. They said the regulations for financial technology companies were discussed at an extraordinary meeting of the National Monetary Council, which oversees the Brazilian financial and monetary system. The public consultations were published a year ago, after complaints from established big banks that the fintechs were getting special treatment with lax regulations even when they had become very large. The consultations pointed to the need to increase capital requirements for the larger fintechs like Nubank, PagSeguro (PAGS.N) and Stone (STNE.O).

Container ships wait off the coast of the congested Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in Long Beach, California, U.S., October 1, 2021. There are now roughly 65,000 empty containers on the Port of Los Angeles docks, up about 18% from just a couple of weeks ago, said the port's executive director, Gene Seroka. Meanwhile, the number of import containers at the Los Angeles port fell 25% to 71,000 since Oct. 24, Seroka said. Railroads and truckers have made progress moving import containers off docks at the adjacent ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach - prompting executives from to delay imposing a new fee on overstaying imports by one week to Nov. 22. Prior to the pandemic, containers intended for local truck deliveries spent fewer than four days on average on docks, while containers earmarked for trains stayed less than two days, the ports said.

(Adds IMF’s comments, background details)MEXICO CITY, Nov 5 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Friday said Mexico’s recent inflationary pressures, while mostly temporary, pose a difficult balancing act amid still sizable slack in its economy. Mexico’s annual inflation rate likely reached the highest level in almost four years in October while core inflation has reached its highest point since 2009, a Reuters poll showed on Friday. Mexico's economy shrank 0.2% here in the July-September period versus the previous quarter after a resurgence in the coronavirus pandemic dragged down service sector activity and disrupted global supply chains. The contraction, Mexico's first since a recovery began from the pandemic, poses a challenge here to the central bank's monetary policy tightening cycle, but stubbornly high inflation appears likely to take precedence. Annual headline inflation currently stands at 6.1%, double the Bank of Mexico’s 3% target rate.

The loonie was trading 0.3% lower at 1.2403 to the greenback, or 80.63 U.S. cents, having touched its weakest level since last Wednesday at 1.2424. We are seeing some "consolidation of October's gains," said Michael Goshko, corporate risk manager at Western Union Business Solutions. "The Canadian dollar doesn't trade in a vacuum so when you have a U.S. dollar that's a little stronger overall, the Canadian dollar will get swept up with other currencies," Goshko added. Last week, the Bank of Canada said it could hike rates as soon as April, three months earlier than previously thought. The Canadian 10-year yield fell 1.6 basis points to 1.733%, after touching on Monday its highest intraday level since May 2019 at 1.766%.

REUTERS/Aly Song/File PhotoLISBON, Nov 2 (Reuters) - Chip designer Advanced Micro Devices (AMD.O) has been able to skirt most of the problems linked with the global chip supply shortage by forecasting demand years in advance, a top executive said on Tuesday. "Our supply chain team has worked to make sure that we have months and years of forecast ahead into our supply chain," Chief Technology Officer Mark Papermaster said on the sidelines of the Web Summit conference in Lisbon, Portugal. "Everybody has had to increase their focus on the supply chain but we did so from the very beginning of the pandemic." Companies with existing ties with chip fabrication companies like Taiwan's TSMC (2330.TW) were also able to guarantee a steady supply. Contrary to automakers, who are hardest hit by semiconductor shortage, AMD focuses on the smaller, more advanced chips which are less affected than the supply of mass-produced older chips.

Rare, ancient Maya canoe found in Mexico's Yucatan
  + stars: | 2021-10-30 | by ( )   time to read: +2 min
Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH)/Handout via REUTERSMEXICO CITY, Oct 29 (Reuters) - A wooden canoe used by the ancient Maya and believed to be over 1,000 years old has turned up in southern Mexico, officials said on Friday, part of archeological work accompanying the construction of a major new tourist train. The extremely rare canoe was found almost completely intact, submerged in a fresh-water pool known as a cenote, thousands of which dot Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, near the ruins of Chichen Itza, once a major Maya city featuring elaborately carved temples and towering pyramids. A three-dimensional model of the canoe will also be commissioned, the statement added, to facilitate further study and allow for replicas to be made. Lopez Obrador has pitched the so-called Maya Train as tourist-friendly infrastructure that will help alleviate poverty in Mexico's poorer southern states, while critics argue it risks damaging the region's delicate ecosystems.

The loonie was trading 0.1% higher at 1.2344 to the greenback, or 81.01 U.S. cents, adding to the previous day's rally. The gap between Canadian and U.S. 2-year yields widened to as much as 57 basis points in favor of the Canadian bond on Wednesday, its widest since 2014. The move came after the Bank of Canada signaled it could hike interest rates three months earlier than previously thought, partly due to strong employment gains. Canadian payroll employment increased by 59,700 in August, driven by gains in the services-producing sector in Ontario and Quebec, Statistics Canada said on Thursday. Canadian government bond yields were mixed across a steeper curve.

Sami reindeer herder Nils Mathis Sara, 60, drives his ATV as he follows a herd of reindeer on the Finnmark Plateau, Norway, June 16, 2018. The court on Oct. 11 ruled that the construction of the Storheia and Roan wind farms in the Fosen region, with a total of 151 turbines, had violated Sami reindeer herders' rights. "A grand chamber of the supreme court unanimously found an interference with this right, and ruled the wind power licence and the expropriation decision invalid," the court said in a statement accompanying its verdict. Fosen Vind is owned by Statkraft (STATKF.UL), TroenderEnergi (TROEN.UL) and Nordic Wind Power DA, a consortium of Energy Infrastructure Partners and Swiss power firm BKW (BKWB.S). The Roan wind farm is now a separate company, Roan Vind, owned by TroenderEnergi (TROEN.UL), Stadtwerke Muenchen and Nordic Wind Power.

Some 15% of Colombia's energy matrix will come from non-conventional renewable sources - such as solar, wind and biomass - by 2023, Mesa said. Duque's government says energy sources like solar and wave power will ensure a more resilient energy supply for the country and fight climate change. Colombia's energy matrix is one of the greenest in the world.

Itau forecasts Brazil downturn in 2022
  + stars: | 2021-10-25 | by ( Reuters Staff | )   time to read: +1 min
Economists at Itau Unibanco revised their 2022 economic growth forecast to -0.5% from 0.5%, adding that they expect Brazil’s benchmark interest rate will climb to 11.25% as the central bank attempts to keep inflation in check. A looser fiscal outlook will force the central bank to make even more aggressive rate hikes, choking off a fragile recovery from a deep COVID-19 recession, Itau forecast. The analysts now project interest rate hikes of 150 basis points at policy meetings this week and in December, up from increases of a full percentage point in recent meetings. The Itau report added that additional hikes of 100 or 125 basis points would fail to rein in inflation, while anything more than 150 basis points could tip Brazil into a profound recession. In a speech in Brasilia later in the day, Economy Minister Guedes appeared to shoot back at the Itau report, saying that the nation’s economy had outperformed expectations in 2021.
