Coronavirus live: China’s Sinopharm jab gets WHO approval; Turkey, Maldives and Nepal added to England ‘red list’
Fri, 07 May 2021 17:54:43 GMT

Grant Shapps says countries added to mandatory hotel quarantine list; Chinese vaccine is fifth to be approved by World Health Organization

Here is a recap of the main Covid updates from around the world:

China’s Sinopharm state company has offered substantial support for the Covax programme to provide Covid vaccines mainly to poor countries, a World Health Organization official has said.

As Reuters reports, senior WHO adviser Bruce Aylward said it would be up to Sinopharm to say how many doses of its vaccine it can provide to the programme, but added:

They are looking at trying to provide substantial support, make substantial doses available while at the same time of course trying to serve China’s population.

The Guardian view on secondhand clothes: the thrill of the old | Editorial
Fri, 07 May 2021 17:25:27 GMT

Big business is getting in on the act as sales of ‘preloved’ garments boom. But can the trend curb our love for fast fashion?

“Few articles change owners more frequently than clothes. They travel downwards from grade to grade in the social scale with remarkable regularity,” wrote the journalist Adolphe Smith in 1877 as he traced a garment’s journey: cleaned, repaired and resold repeatedly; eventually cut down into a smaller item; finally, when it was beyond all wearability, the fibres recycled into new fabric for the wealthier classes.

That model is almost incomprehensible in the era of fast fashion. The average British customer buys four items a month, often at pocket-money prices; though the low cost is a godsend for the hard-up, many purchases are discarded after a few outings, or never worn at all. Clothes Aid reports that 350,000 tonnes of used but still wearable clothing goes to landfill in the UK each year.

The Football Association is in talks with Uefa over relocating the Champions League final to England after Turkey was placed on the UK government’s travel red list.

Uefa had been expected to confirm details on Friday for the final on 29 May, with Manchester City and Chelsea fans expected to be allocated at least 4,000 tickets each for the match in Istanbul. That decision has been postponed pending negotiations, however, with English supporters told to stay at home by the UK government.

10 of the best places to visit in Portugal, chosen by readers

With Portugal announced as the only major destination on the green list on Friday, our tipsters choose their favourite natural parks, towns, beaches and seafood restaurants

If you want something out of the ordinary with fantastic scenery and fascinating history, then go to Terras de Bouro in the far north of the country. This town is well worth a visit because it offers the chance to walk along a Roman road complete with original milestones. The Via Geira was built to link Braga with Astorga, now in Spain. It is signposted within Terras de Bouro. The trail winds through woodland and round mountains with spectacular views, waterfalls and, of course, the milestones. It goes through the Peneda-Gerês national park to Portela de Homem on the Spanish border. It’s magical – .

: Expedia stock surges as results top Street view
Thu, 06 May 2021 20:18:00 GMT

Expedia Group Inc. EXPE shares rallied in the extended session Thursday after the online travel company’s results came in better than expected. Expedia shares jumped 5% after hours, following a 3.6% decline in the regular session to close at $164.82. The company reported a first-quarter loss of $606 million, or $4.17 a share, compared with $1.3 billion, or $9.24 a share, in the year-ago period. The adjusted loss, which exclude stock-based compensation expenses and other items, was $2.02 a share, compared with $1.83 a share in the year-ago period. Revenue fell to $1.25 billion from $2.21 billion in the year-ago quarter. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast a loss of $2.30 a share on revenue of $1.11 billion. “Travel remains a study in contrasts – with strong vacation rental growth and demand for domestic travel continuing to drive us forward, while demand for international and business travel and conventional lodging remain challenged,” said Expedia Chief Executive Peter Kern in a statement. “As the vaccine rollout continues, we expect to see a now familiar story play out; domestic and leisure demand lead the recovery. However, as the dire situation in India reminds us, in some markets, things may get worse before they get better.”

Mission Alpha liftoff
Fri, 23 Apr 2021 12:00:00 +0200
Video: 00:04:13

Liftoff of the Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft with ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet, NASA astronauts Megan McArthur and Shane Kimbrough, and Japanese astronaut Aki Hoshide. The Crew-2 spend around 24 hours travelling to the International Space Station. The rocket lifted off at 11:49 on 23 April 2021 from Launchpad 39A in Cape Canaveral at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA.

Thomas is the first ESA astronaut to fly in space in a vehicle other than the Russian Soyuz or the US Space Shuttle, and the first ESA astronaut to leave Earth from Florida, USA, in over a decade. This is his second flight, his first mission called Proxima saw Thomas fly to the Space Station on a Soyuz from Baikonur in Kazakhstan and his Expedition broke records for amount of hours spent on research at the time.

Thomas’ second mission to the International Space Station is called Alpha. This is after Alpha Centauri, the closest stellar system to Earth, following the French tradition to name space missions after stars or constellations.

Over 200 experiments are planned during Thomas’s time in space, with 40 European ones and 12 new experiments led by France’s space agency CNES.

Thunderstorm seen from Space Station

If you have been following International Space Station news, you know that hundreds of scientific experiments are performed in low-Earth orbit and the pace is only increasing. This is great news for scientists, especially those that have been preparing for years to send their experiment to the orbital outpost, but what does it mean for people on Earth? 

If you are not into plasma nanoparticles, subjective time measurement in microgravity or traveling to Mars in the future, what benefit does space science have for you?

Potentially a lot. Experiments performed on the International Space Station could in fact help save our planet. All one needs to do is look beyond the initial outcomes and ask: "How can this information be useful in other areas?"

Spectrum Brands blows past estimates, raises FY21 sales guidance
Fri, 07 May 2021 10:46:05 GMT

Spectrum Brands Holdings Inc. posted stronger-than-expected earnings for its fiscal third quarter Friday, and raised its fiscal 2021 guidance. The owner of household brands swung to a profit of $36.8 million, or 88 cents a share, in the quarter to March 29, from a loss of $59.2 million, or $1.29 a share, in the year-earlier period. Adjusted per-share earnings came to $1.76, well ahead of the 99 cents FactSet consensus. Sales rose to $1.149 billion from $937.8 million, also ahead of the $1.032 billion FactSet consensus. Sales at the company's hardware and home improvement division rose 18.4% to $389.5 million. "Security sales reflected growth across retail, e-commerce and new build channels," the company said. Home and personal care sales rose 28% to $297.9 million, driven by strength in small kitchen appliances. Pet care sales rose 23.9% to $293.6 million, driven by aquatics and companion animal categories, while home and garden sales rose 21% to $168.8 million. Spectrum Brands is now expecting fiscal 2021 sales to rise by double-digits, compared with earlier guidance of high single-digit growth. The company is raising its total savings gross target from productivity improvements to $200 million from $150 million. The board has approved a new 3-year, $1 billion share buyback program. Shares were not yet active premarket, but have gained 16% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 11.9%.

10-year Treasury yield slides below 1.50% after weaker-than-expected jobs report
Fri, 07 May 2021 12:36:53 GMT

Long-dated U.S. Treasury yields fell sharply on Friday after the Labor Department reported the economy had added 266,000 jobs in April, falling well short of the 1 million gains forecast by MarketWatch-polled economists. The 10-year Treasury note yield was down 6.6 basis points to 1.495%, while the 30-year bond yield tumbled 5.5 basis points to 2.181%. Prior to the report, investors were expecting that a strong jobs report would add to the case for faster pace of liftoff from the Federal Reserve's easy-money policies.

Gold futures mark highest finish in almost 3 months
Fri, 07 May 2021 17:53:48 GMT

Gold futures climbed Friday for a third straight session to mark their highest finish in almost three months. Following data showing weaker-than-expected U.S. nonfarm jobs growth in April, Chintan Karnani, director of research at Insignia Consultants, said he does not expect U.S. interest rates to be raised at the Federal Reserve's June meeting, and the U.S. dollar index is "on the defensive." The ICE U.S. Dollar Index fell 0.7% Friday, on track for a weekly loss of over 1%, providing support for dollar-denominated gold. The June gold contract rose $15.60, or 0.9%, to settle at $1,831.30 an ounce. That was the highest most-active contract settlement since Feb. 10, FactSet data show. For the week, prices based on the most-active contract climbed about 3.6%.

J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs stocks lead Dow losers as yields fall after disappointing jobs data
Fri, 07 May 2021 13:14:25 GMT

Bank stocks took a dive in premarket trading Friday, as Treasury yields sank in the wake of disappointing government jobs data. J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.'s stock fell 1.6% to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's early decliners, followed by the 1.4% drop in Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s stock . The implied price declines of those two stocks would shave about 50 points off the Dow's price, while Dow futures declined 16 points, or 0.1%. Elsewhere, shares of Bank of America Corp. were down 1.7%, Citigroup Inc. shed 1.4% and Wells Fargo & Co. gave up 1.3%, while the SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF was down 1.1%. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note dropped 4.7 basis points to a 2-month low of 1.515%, after the U.S. added a lot less jobs than expected and the unemployment rate surprisingly rose. Lower longer-term interest rates can hurt bank profits, as it narrows the spread they can earn on longer-term assets, like loans, that are funded with shorter-term liabilities.

Coronavirus tally: Global cases of COVID-19 top 156 million and India counts record of 414,000 new cases in a day
Fri, 07 May 2021 10:14:28 GMT

The global tally for the coronavirus-borne illness rose above 156 million on Friday, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University, while the death toll rose above 3.25 million. The U.S. continues to lead the world in cases and deaths by wide margins, with 32.6 million cases and 580,063 deaths, or about a fifth of the worldwide tallies. India is second to the U.S. by cases at 21.5 million and third by fatalities at 234,083. India added a record of 414,000 new cases in a 24-hour period, a fresh global record, and almost 4,000 deaths, according to its health ministry. Those numbers are widely held to be greatly undercounted given the stress on its healthcare system. Western countries have sent aid to help the nation of almost 1.4 billion's hospitals, which are short on oxygen and other lifesaving equipment and medicines. Brazil is third with 15 million cases and second by fatalities at 416,949. Mexico has the fourth-highest death toll at 218,173 and 2.4 million cases, or 15th highest tally. The U.K. has 4.4 million cases and 127,843 deaths, the fifth-highest in the world and highest in Europe.

Dow jumps over 300 points to log 23rd record close in 2021 and S&P 500 ends back above 4,200 amid late-session surge
Thu, 06 May 2021 20:09:49 GMT

U.S. stocks on Thursday finished a tumultous day firmly in positive territory and the Dow registered back-to-back record closes, supported by a round of strong corporate earnings and signs of continued improvement in the labor market as reflected in the jobless claims report ahead of a closely followed employment report due on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up by about 315 points, or 0.9%, to a record at 34,546, powered by gains in Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Home Depot . The all-time closing high was the 23rd for the blue-chip index in 2021, outstripping all of the records produced in 2020, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The S&P 500 index closed up 0.8% at 4,200, while the Nasdaq Composite Index ended 0.4% higher at 13,633, snapping a four-session skid. A 1.4% rally in financials and a 1% rally in the technology sector helped to support Thursday's advance, which came as initial unemployment claims in the U.S. fell to 498,000 for first time in pandemic era, pointing to an improving labor market but also raising questions for some investors about the specter of rapidly rising inflation.

The Guardian view on secondhand clothes: the thrill of the old | Editorial
Fri, 07 May 2021 17:25:27 GMT

Big business is getting in on the act as sales of ‘preloved’ garments boom. But can the trend curb our love for fast fashion?

“Few articles change owners more frequently than clothes. They travel downwards from grade to grade in the social scale with remarkable regularity,” wrote the journalist Adolphe Smith in 1877 as he traced a garment’s journey: cleaned, repaired and resold repeatedly; eventually cut down into a smaller item; finally, when it was beyond all wearability, the fibres recycled into new fabric for the wealthier classes.

That model is almost incomprehensible in the era of fast fashion. The average British customer buys four items a month, often at pocket-money prices; though the low cost is a godsend for the hard-up, many purchases are discarded after a few outings, or never worn at all. Clothes Aid reports that 350,000 tonnes of used but still wearable clothing goes to landfill in the UK each year.

Their extraordinary wealth sets them apart from most couples but the “separation contract” reportedly agreed by Bill and Melinda Gates reflects a growing trend among divorcing couples in the UK to settle their affairs without going to court , leading family lawyers have said.

The pair, who married 27 years ago and reportedly had no prenuptial agreement, are said to have drawn up a private agreement to divide their assets before announcing their divorce this week. Insiders say that a team of lawyers had probably been working on what is being called a separation agreement for at least a year to avoid the need for litigation through the courts.

‘A dirty business’: how one drug is turning Syria into a narco-state
Fri, 07 May 2021 09:54:54 GMT

Manufacture of Captagon is a growth industry so big it is starting to rival GDP of flatlining economy

In the summer of 2015 a businessman in the Syrian province of Latakia was approached by a powerful security chief, seeking a favour. The official wanted the merchant, an importer of medical supplies, to source large amounts of a drug called fenethylline from abroad. The regime, he said, would readily buy the lot.

After an internet search, the merchant made a decision. He left his home that same week, first sending his wife and children to exile, then following after, scrounging what he could from his businesses for a new start. “I know what they were asking me to do,” he said from his new home in Paris. “They wanted the main ingredient for Captagon. And that drug is a dirty business.”

WHO grants emergency use to COVID-19 vaccine developed by China's Sinopharm
Fri, 07 May 2021 15:53:15 GMT

The World Health Organization said Friday it has listed the COVID-19 vaccine developed by China's Sinopharm for emergency use, allowing it to be rolled out across the world. The vaccine, which is made by Beijing Bio-Institute of Biological Products Co Ltd, a subsidiary of China National Biotec Group, "has the potential to rapidly accelerate COVID-19 vaccine access for countries seeking to protect health workers and populations at risk," said Dr Mariângela Simão, WHO Assistant-Director General for Access to Health Products. Simão said the agency will encourage the manufacturer to participate in the WHO's Covax program, which aims to get vaccines to poorer countries, that are lagging in the global vaccine push due to a lack of supply. The WHO has already granted emergency use authorization to vaccines developed by Pfizer and German partner BioNTech , AstraZeneca , Serum Institute of India, J&J unit Janssen and Moderna . Earlier this week, Reuters reported that a document it had obtained suggested the WHO had "very low confidence" in data provided by Sinopharm on its COVID vaccine regarding the risk of serious side effects in some patients. On Friday, the WHO said its Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization, or SAGE, conducted on-site inspections at the production facility before reaching their decision. SAGE is recommending the vaccine for use in adults 18 years and older in a two-dose regimen, separated by three to four weeks. Vaccine efficacy for symptomatic and hospitalized disease was estimated to be 79%, all age groups combined.

Fri, 07 May 2021 15:48:31 GMT

Nikola Corp. in a filing Friday disclosed a new U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission inquiry. The electric-truck maker said it received a subpoena on March 24 from the Division of Enforcement. The subpoena was related to the company's projected 2021 cash flow and anticipated use of funds from 2021 capital raises, Nikola said. "The company is committed to cooperating fully with the Staff of the Division of Enforcement" investigation as well as the Southern District of New York's ongoing investigation, it said. Nikola "has made voluminous productions of information and made witnesses available for interviews" and will continue to comply with the requests, it said. Shares of Nikola continued to rally on Friday, up more than 10%, and the company earlier on the day reported a narrower-than-expected quarterly loss.

FDA advisory committee votes 10-8 in favor of ChemoCentryx's experimental drug; stock is down
Fri, 07 May 2021 14:14:59 GMT

Shares of ChemoCentryx Inc. tumbled 61.7% in trading on Friday, the day after a Food and Drug Administration advisory committee voted 10-8 that the benefits of the company's experimental autoimmune drug, avacopan, outweigh the risks. The mixed response from committee members followed critical words from the FDA earlier this week that had sent ChemoCentryx's stock diving. The company's stock this week was downgraded by Raymond James and Stifel Nicolaus, among others. Raymond James analyst Steven Seedhouse told investors that while he downgraded the stock to outperform, from strong buy, he still predicts a FDA approval by July 7 and a future blockbuster in avacopan, which is being evaluated as a treatment for anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic auto-antibody-associated vasculitis. "We're actually not changing our unadjusted avacopan estimates (~$1.9B peak unadjusted U.S. sales), only our probability of success (now at 50% vs. 100% prior)," he wrote. "Yes, we're calling this a pure coin flip between now and July 7." ChemoCentryx's stock is down 54.4% for the year, while the broader S&P 500 is up 11.8%.

Labour will probably ask a focus group why it’s losing – and that’s the problem | Aditya Chakrabortty
Fri, 07 May 2021 13:40:23 GMT

The Conservatives are radically reshaping the UK in their image. Keir Starmer urgently needs an alternative vision

Last week, a senior member of Keir Starmer’s shadow cabinet told me: “If the Tories can win Hartlepool, nowhere is safe. They can win anywhere.” A seat that had been Labour since its creation, slap-bang in what the party once called its heartlands, its significance was painfully obvious to Starmer’s team. They had moulded their leader and their entire strategy around winning back the “red wall”, and here was their first crucial test. Even amid the largest ever set of polls outside a general election, senior officials at party HQ kicked off their operations meeting each morning with a discussion of this one constituency 260 miles up the M1. Time, money, staff: they threw whatever they could at it.

They still got bulldozered. Hartlepool has voted by a landslide for a Conservative who, by her own admission, has spent more time in the Cayman Islands than in the town she will from next week represent at Westminster. And the really bad news for Labour is: there’s much more bad news to come.

I thought I’d quit my trainer addiction – then along came some Yeezy slides
Fri, 07 May 2021 13:00:35 GMT

I got an email saying I could enter a raffle where the prize is spending a load of money on something I had not intention of buying previously

The trainer market has never been more vibrant, and by vibrant I mean that I am buying pairs at ridiculous prices all the time. You can’t even buy the really popular ones from the shops any more. You either buy them from someone with the necessarily ludicrous commitment to get them for way above retail price, or you enter a raffle. I think we can agree that consumerism has gone too far when your prize for winning a competition is that you get to pay for some overpriced shoes.

Nevertheless, I am completely in, and flirting dangerously with becoming a “hypebeast” (somebody who is obsessed with getting the most talked-about, rarest trainers). Rather than admiring the hypebeast in her household, my wife has suggested that my age and appearance mean that I often look like a middle-aged man who has borrowed his teenage son’s shoes – but she’s just a hater.

Fri, 07 May 2021 12:46:07 GMT

Shares of Nikola Corp. rallied 3.6% in premarket trading Friday, putting them on an early track to snap a 8-session losing streak, after the electric vehicle maker reported a narrower-than-expected first-quarter loss while reporting no revenue, which was in line with forecasts.

SVB Leerink upgrades Epizyme, citing sales potential for lymphoma drug

Shares of Epizyme Inc. were up 11.0% in premarket trading on Friday after SVB Leerink upgraded the company's stock to outperform, from market perform, citing Tazverik's potential opportunity in the follicular lymphoma market. Analyst Andrew Berens told investors that the drug's potential as a "maintenance" therapy could represent a "significant upside to current valuation." (Maintenance treatments can be used to prevent relapses of some cancers.) Berens said he had previously estimated the drug could generate $252 million in sales in 2030; now he sees the potential for $854 million in sales, including sales from both treatment and maintenance prescriptions. The Food and Drug Administration approved Tazerik as a therapy for relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma in June of last year. Epizyme's stock is down 37.3% for the year, while the S&P 500 is up 11.8%.

New analysis estimates that 905,000 people in the U.S. have died from COVID-19
Fri, 07 May 2021 12:44:37 GMT

A new analysis estimates that the number of people who died from COVID-19 globally, as well as in the U.S., is significantly higher than official death tolls. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, a health research center affiliated with the University of Washington, estimates that 905,289 people in the U.S. died from COVID-19, compared to the official tally of 574,043, as of May 3. India is estimated to have had around 640,000 deaths, which is nearly three times more than the official number of 221,181. And, worldwide, the IHME's analysis puts the number of COVID-19 deaths at 6.93 million, which more than twice as many deaths (3.24 million) that have been officially reported. There are two main reasons why IHME believes that death rates are higher: there was a lack of adequate testing in the earliest days of the pandemic that would have confirmed infections, and there are discrepancies between reported deaths by governments and excess mortality rates.

"In Europe, the market is now picking up, while Tilray's scale and Aphria's unique German positioning make it perfectly suited to succeed.

"Data to support the BLA will be submitted by the Companies to the FDA on a rolling basis over the coming weeks, with a request for Priority Review," the companies said in a joint statement. Since the vaccine was granted an EUA on Dec. 11, the companies have delivered more than 170 million doses across the U.S. Pfizer and BioNTech has also submitted an application to expand the EUA to include individuals aged 12-to-15 years-old, and plan to submit a supplemental BLA to support licensure of the vaccine in that age group once the required 6 months of data after a second dose are available. Pfizer shares rose 0.6% premarket, while BioNTech shares rose 4.3%.

Fed's Bostic says too soon to be tapering asset purchases or for FOMC debate on issue
Thu, 06 May 2021 19:02:00 GMT

Atlanta Federal Reserve President Raphael Bostic on Thursday said it was too soon to be scaling back asset purchases or having the Fed's interest-rate committee formally discuss the issue at their next meeting in mid-June. In recent days, Dallas Fed President Rob Kaplan has called for a formal discussion of tapering of the Fed's $120 billion of asset purchases, but many other Fed officials have said such a conversation would be premature. "There is a lot of healing that would need to happen before I would want to start to be thinking about us having made substantial progress," which is the benchmark the Fed set for tapering, Bostic said, in comments to reporters after a speech at a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau conference. Bostic said each of the 18 top Fed officials are still making up their own minds about when to taper. "Right now, I'm not sure I am at a place where I would be wanting to force that conversation at a committee level," he said.

Biden says ‘We still have a long way to go’ after disheartening jobs report – live
Fri, 07 May 2021 17:55:13 GMT
  • Biden insists country is ‘moving in the direction’ despite poor numbers
  • Republicans look to oust Cheney as Trump allies push election lie

Texas has become the latest Republican-dominated state to advance sweeping new limits on voting, despite no evidence of any problems with last year’s vote and a coalition of state and federal officials calling the 2020 presidential election the most secure in history.

Readers, we have a staff report coming from Texas shortly and please definitely look out for more special Guardian news-features on these issues next week, in the continuation of our series called The Fight to Vote. But for a quick report, here’s something from The Associated Press on Texas latest:

The key vote at 3 a.m. Friday in the Texas House followed hours of debate that started the day before, with lawmakers now negotiating the final version of the legislation that will need approval before heading to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, who has broadly defended the measures.

From Florida to Georgia, Iowa and now Texas, Republican lawmakers have used unsubstantiated claims by former President Donald Trump and his allies to justify new voting restrictions.

The Democratic National Committee has commented on today’s report on April jobs, which issued statistics that disappointed expectations.

Unsurprisingly, Democrats are taking a glass-half-full approach while also encouraging Congress to work even harder to pass Joe Biden’s legislation on infrastructure and families that will boost employment and the economy.

Proud of you my friend!!! @KeishaBottoms Thank you for all that you have done for the great city of Atlanta! https://t.co/wlJFa2Qo9W

Hartlepool fell victim to the Labour leader’s lack of vision | Owen Jones
Fri, 07 May 2021 16:20:45 GMT

Having lost a seat that Corbyn outperformed him in twice, it’s Starmer who looks like the less than competent politician now

Blind panic. That’s the generous way to describe the expression etched on the face of Hartlepool’s Labour candidate when I visited the constituency and asked him the most basic question of all: what was his party’s vision for the country? He spluttered, rejected the premise of the question, and threw in platitudes about attracting the best businesses to this County Durham port town by improving child literacy.

This is not to slight Paul Williams, undoubtedly a talented GP rather than a miracle worker who can conjure up a vision for his party where none exists. Tony Benn once said there were two types of politician: a signpost and a weathervane. It would be unfair to describe Keir Starmer as the latter, because weathervanes are at least known to point, however fleetingly, in a direction. Today, we saw the fruits of a truly fascinating experiment: what happens when a political party fights an election campaign without a vision or a coherent message against a government that has both in spades. And truly, it was a bitter result.

The Jersey fishing standoff shows Brexit has only just begun | Marley Morris
Fri, 07 May 2021 12:03:39 GMT

Ultimately, Britain will need to find a way to cooperate with its closest neighbours without resorting to gunboat diplomacy

When the UK and the EU finalised their trade deal last December, you could be forgiven for assuming that Boris Johnson had fulfilled his pledge to “get Brexit done”. But as events this week have proved, the process is far from over. An argument with France over fishing rights around the island of Jersey rapidly descended into threats, blockades and the government sending in the navy.

The current dispute rests on differing interpretations of one part of the trade and cooperation agreement (TCA), the trade deal that now governs economic relations between the UK and the EU. While Jersey is not part of the UK and was never within the EU, the TCA replaced the Bay of Granville agreement, which used to govern fishing rights in Jersey’s waters.

Fuels produced from hydrogen can be used as straight replacements for oil and gas and can be low-carbon, if renewable electricity is used to produce these “e-fuels”. However, the research found that using the electricity directly to power cars and warm houses was far more efficient.

Masked campaign
Thu, 06 May 2021 12:32:00 +0200
Image:

Researchers take a group photo in front of the Air Zero G aircraft to mark the end of the 75th ESA parabolic flight campaign. The campaign was the third to take place under Covid-19 restrictions, and ran from 21 to 30 April in Bordeaux, France.

Participants and coordinators adjusted to a new way of flying: PCR tests were required to enter France, as well as rapid antigen or RT LAMP tests each day for every participant. Facilities on the ground as well as on board were adapted to allow for social distancing and cleanliness requirements. Surgical masks were worn at all times, and movement was restricted during the flights.

Otherwise, the parabolic flights were business-as-usual. Teams from various research institutes and universities performed experiments and technology demonstrations across many disciplines including complex fluidics, astronomical light scattering, protoplanetary agglomeration, and human physiology in altered states of gravity.

Initially used for training astronauts, parabolic flights are now mostly used for short-duration scientific and technological investigations in reduced gravity. These flights are the only way for humans to run tests in microgravity without going through lengthy astronaut-training and flights to the International Space Station.

To perform each parabola, the refitted A310 Air Zero G aircraft flies close to maximum speed and pulls the nose up to a 45° angle, then cuts the power to fall over the top of the curve. Whilst falling freely the passengers and experiments experience around 20 seconds of microgravity, until the plane is angled 45° nose-down, before pulling out of the dive to level off with normal flight.

These “pull up” and “pull out” manoeuvres before and after the weightless period increase gravity inside the plane up to 2g, but that is just part of the ride, repeated every three minutes for almost two hours.

A typical parabolic flight campaign involves three flights and requires a week of on-site preparation. Each flight offers 31 periods of weightlessness. The aircraft can also fly in arcs that provide lunar or martian gravity levels by adjusting the angle of attack of the wings.

Simplicity of preparation and operations, reduced cost, partial-gravity levels, multiple microgravity phases and opportunity for researchers to work directly on the experiments on board are some of the unique advantages..

Parabolic flights are organised by Novespace, which handles flight and ground operations. ESA, French space agency CNES, and German space agency DLR are the promoters and sponsors of the programme.

Manchester United fans: what do you plan to do next?
Tue, 04 May 2021 11:25:38 GMT

We would like to hear from fans about their protests against the Glazers and how they want the club to change

Manchester United fans have wanted the club’s owners, the Glazer family, to sell up for years. The club’s recent attempt to join the European Super League has given fans fresh momentum in their bid to drive the owners out of the club. Hundreds of supporters joined a protest against the Glazers on Sunday, forcing United’s match against Liverpool to be postponed.

Yet, despite the strength of opposition from the fans, the Glazers say they have no plans to sell the club. Instead, they want to grow the club into a $10bn business. If you are a Manchester United fan, how do you feel about the Glazers’ plans to stay? Will you keep protesting? Will you stop supporting the club? What action will you take?

Hospital in Zanzibar and support for child workers in Bangladesh among projects to miss out as nearly £2m of funding is cancelled

The UK has scrapped three rounds of grants to small international development charities, prompting fury that it has wiped out funding for 42 projects around the world to save “less than the [£2.6m] cost of the Downing Street press room”.

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) told charities last week that rounds six, seven and eight of the Small Charities Challenge Fund (SCCF) would not go ahead because of aid cuts, cancelling nearly £2m of funds earmarked for new and future programmes, including many that had been approved.

How the UK government sidestepped the data on coronavirus – video explainer
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 11:37:52 GMT

This time last year, NHS bosses asked doctors and nurses to ‘wear aprons’ and work without protective full-length gowns when treating Covid-19 patients, as hospitals were within hours of running out of supplies.

This is just one example of how the UK government has been slammed for its handling of the pandemic, through a series of missteps, U-turns, lockdowns, denials – and more than 150,000 deaths.

Twelve months on, the Guardian's Pamela Duncan looks at three major areas where officials were out of line with the data on coronavirus infections and deaths available at the time.

A government spokesperson responded, saying: ‘Throughout the pandemic, our approach has been guided by data and the advice of scientific and medical experts … As new evidence emerged, we acted quickly and decisively to implement life-saving measures, including restrictions and lockdowns, to protect lives, livelihoods and our economy. We are doing everything we can to ensure care home residents and staff are protected, including providing more than 9.9 billion items of PPE to the frontline.’
