New Zealand's Ardern set to declare climate emergency
  + stars: | 2020-11-26 | by ( Praveen Menon | ) + 1.00   time to read: +1 min
WELLINGTON (Reuters) - New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s government is to declare a climate emergency in a symbolic step to increase pressure for action to combat global warming. Slideshow ( 2 images )The government will put forward a motion to declare the emergency next Wednesday, the government said as parliament reconvened after a general election won by Ardern’s party. The resounding win allows Ardern’s party to govern alone although she has joined forces with the Green Party for the next three-year term. If a climate emergency is passed, New Zealand would join countries like Canada, France and Britain that have taken the same course to focus efforts on tackling climate change. Last week, Japanese lawmakers declared a climate emergency and committed to a firm timetable for net-zero emissions.

Space oddity? Monolith in Utah desert mystifies helicopter crew

(Reuters) - They were on a mission to count sheep when they found something they had not counted on. Slideshow ( 3 images )As a Utah helicopter crew buzzed over the southeastern part of the state looking for bighorn sheep last week, sitting beneath them in the middle of the desert was a bright shiny monolith, the stuff of sci-fi sagas. “He’s like, whoa, whoa, whoa, turn around, turn around,” Hutchings told KSL-TV in Salt Lake City. In the film, an alien monolith is a recurring symbol that appears to play a key role in man’s evolution from the apes. Whatever the Utah object’s origins, it has fired up the minds of conspiracy theorists and sci-fi fans on social media.

On Monday, Cleveland officials announced coronavirus cases had surpassed 10,000, with 308 coming from the previous day. As the surge increases, doctors and hospitals will have to make more decisions about how to handle it, including postponing surgeries and out-patient procedures, state officials said Monday. While state officials quickly point out that 3 in 10 hospital beds statewide are currently unoccupied, that could change after Thanksgiving. “We can’t sound the alarm bell loud enough for people in Ohio to change their behavior,” said Dr. Andy Thomas of the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Tuesday pleaded with Americans to grasp “the severity of the moment” and remain vigilant against the coronavirus pandemic, as record hospitalizations pushed healthcare professionals to the brink. Case rates in the 12 Midwestern states are more than double that of any other region, according to the COVID Tracking Project, up more than 20 times from mid-June to mid-November. Some are repurposing areas to accommodate COVID-19 patients or cramming multiple patients in a single room, and are asking staffers to work longer hours and more frequent shifts. Michigan reported over 4,000 hospitalized COVID-19 patients on Monday, surpassing its previous record on April 13. “A quarter of all of our coronavirus cases this year have occurred in the last month.

Parents of Briton killed in road accident lose diplomatic immunity challenge

LONDON (Reuters) - The parents of a 19-year-old Briton killed in a road accident in 2019 lost their court battle with the British government on Tuesday over whether the wife of U.S. official involved in the crash had diplomatic immunity from criminal prosecution. Her lawyer has said that she will not return voluntarily to potentially face jail for “a terrible but unintentional accident”. They also alleged that the Foreign Office unlawfully confirmed or advised the relevant police force that Sacoolas had immunity from criminal jurisdiction. The court ruled on Tuesday that Sacoolas did have immunity, that it had not been expressively waived, and also that any advice given was correct. “I appreciate that won’t provide any solace to the family in their search for justice,” he said.

There was a testing system, a separate national tracing service and a smartphone app for digital contact tracing. These labs were operated by various firms and academic institutions, and overseen by the Department of Health, the health ministry. When the community testing data became available, a more worrying picture emerged, said Arooj Shah, deputy leader of Oldham Council. But, as COVID-19 cases started rising again, Meehan despaired. Most of the time, the contact tracers said they had little to do - even when COVID-19 cases were rising.

The American economy is a wonderful engine of prosperity left to its own devices, and on Tuesday it proved this again with another surge in equity prices that pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average above 30,000 for the first time. Stock prices rise and fall, but this symbolic milestone of optimism for the future shows the economy’s resilience despite the Covid-19 plague.

NEW YORK/LONDON (Reuters) - Activist hedge fund Elliott Management Corp has invested at least $30 million in Cataleya Energy, a small firm focused on oil exploration in Guyana, the world’s newest oil and gas hot spot, two people familiar with the matter said. REUTERS/Luc CohenThe deal reflects rising interest in Guyana, a small South American country of 750,000 whose oil discoveries are set to transform an economy dependent on agriculture and mining. Mike Cawood, chief executive and co-founder of Canada-registered Cataleya, declined to comment on the Elliott investment but said his shareholders come from Guyana, the Caribbean, the United States, Canada and Israel. The investment puts Elliott, run by billionaire Paul Singer, in a consortium with U.S. producer Hess Corp, which owns a 15% stake in Kaieteur. Elliott, a shareholder in Hess, pushed for changes at Hess in 2013 and remained critical here of the company's management for years.

HAVANA (Reuters) - Western Union Co suspended its operations across Cuba on Monday evening as new U.S. sanctions kicked in, cutting a key lifeline for many struggling Cuban families as the coronavirus pandemic deepens the Communist-run island’s economic crisis. Slideshow ( 2 images )U.S. President-elect Joe Biden has promised to roll back some sanctions on remittances. But any lifting of the suspension could take time and until then, Cuban Americans are expected to resort to alternatives that are more costly, less secure and less rapid. Cuban Americans can transfer digital currencies to middle men on the island who then give money to the Cuban Americans’ relatives. The closures of Western Union’s 407 offices in Cuba came into effect after U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration banned U.S. firms sending remittances via military-controlled companies that include Western Union’s main Cuban partner.

The purpose of congressional hearings is to inform policy with evidence and analysis from expert witnesses. The history of medicine is littered with snake-oil salesmen who championed useless or harmful treatments based on personal experience. In the hearing, I was called “reckless” because I pointed to facts that could prevent people from getting this treatment. Senator Johnson and his witnesses questioned the integrity of the medical community, suggesting scientists were part of some “deep state” conspiracy to deny Americans access to lifesaving therapies. We’ve heard this before — including from President Trump, who has accused doctors of inflating Covid-19 cases for profit.

LONDON/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - It took Oxford University’s brightest minds decades of work to give them the expertise to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. In the end, it was a momentary error - and a dose of good fortune - that carried them over the line. “The reason we had the half dose is serendipity,” Mene Pangalos, head of AstraZeneca’s non-oncology research and development, told Reuters. “So we went back and checked ... and we found out that they had underpredicted the dose of the vaccine by half.”He said the team nonetheless decided to press ahead with that half dose group, and to administer the second, full dose booster shot at the scheduled time. “That, in essence, is how we stumbled upon doing half dose-full dose (group),” he told Reuters.
