Depending on the pace of legalization, the market for European cannabis could grow at a compound annual rate of 52% for the next five years, hitting $3.1 billion in sales by 2025, Chicago-based research firm Brightfield Group and London-based consultancy Hanway Associates said. "Though they remain a tremendous force in Europe, forward momentum among (Canadian) liquidity providers will slow in the future, especially in newer or smaller markets," the consultants said, adding this would give more room for European players.
Hospital acquired infections (HAI's) were the dirty secret of healthcare for decades. Over two million infections annually resulted in about 100,000 patients dying per year from largely avoidable infections they picked up at their care site which then went unreported for many legal, financial and other reasons. This was finally recognized in the 90's and culminated in the 2009 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services publication of the National Action Plan to Prevent Health Care-Associated Infections: Road Map to Elimination. Since then, significant improvements have been made in a multi-pronged approach which improves care, saves lives, reduces the estimated $30Bn cost of HAIs, creates accountability and reporting, but most importantly starts with recognition of the problem.

According to Flu News Europe, a joint monitoring platform of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and the World Health Organization which collects samples in 54 European regions, only one person was diagnosed with flu out of 4,433 sentinel tests during Sept. 28-Nov. 22.

Ghana holds presidential and parliamentary elections on Dec. 7 amid concerns over its rising debt pile, but that has not stopped some investors from buying up its bonds on a bet that the next government will move to repair the public finances. The two main presidential candidates are promising to spend more if they win the tightly contested vote, while the financial fallout of the coronavirus pandemic has pushed up the debt-to-GDP ratio past 70% and prompted the International Monetary Fund to flag the danger of debt distress. Warmer sentiment towards global emerging markets in general after recent vaccine developments have also lifted sentiment.

The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, said early Tuesday that the city would reopen a coronavirus testing site at Union Station, a major transit hub, after residents criticized a decision to temporarily close the site during a film shoot.The movie, "He's All That," which features the TikTok star Addison Rae and is a reboot of the 1999 romantic comedy "She's All That," had received approval to film inside and outside the station on Tuesday, the city and county's film office said. About 170 cast and crew members were expected to take part in the movie scenes, the film office said.The reversal came after a homeless outreach and advocacy group called Ktown for All criticized the decision to close the site and shared a copy of an email that it said a resident received on Monday afternoon from the company that operates the testing site. It said that all testing appointments for Tuesday at the station had been canceled because of an event there.Sign up for The Morning newsletter from the New York TimesThe group said that the move showed that the city had misplaced its priorities at a time when hospitalizations for the virus are on the rise, and that the decision to close the site for a day made it more difficult for people who rely on public transportation to get tested."It's truly one of the only COVID testing centers within the city of Los Angeles that is really accessible by public transit," Devon Manney, a spokesman for the group, said in an interview on Monday night. "This is the LA that we are constantly fighting against."Philip Sokoloski, a spokesman for the film office, which is known as FilmLA, said on Monday night that neither the office nor the locations team for the production company had been aware that the station was one of the city's virus testing locations and were not involved in the decision to close the site.Union Station is one of the city's 10 permanent testing sites and five pop-up locations, including one at the North Hollywood Metro station that is on the same rapid transit line as Union Station. City officials did not say who had made the decision to suspend testing at Union Station.In a tweet, Garcetti said the 504 people who were scheduled for a test at Union Station on Tuesday could visit the site as planned. City officials said about 350 daily tests are conducted on average at Union Station, which they said accounted for less than 1% of the more than 35,000 tests that are done every day in Los Angeles.Miramax, which is releasing the film, declined to comment on Monday night.This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2020 The New York Times Company
(Bloomberg) -- Bitcoin pulled back after making a run at $20,000 on Tuesday amid skepticism over the cryptocurrency’s intense rally.Prices rose to an intraday record of $19,914.33 and then sharply retreated. In an interview with Bloomberg Television, Gary Cohn, a former economic chief to Donald Trump, said the token “lacks some of the basic integrity of a real market” and could eventually fail.“Part of the integrity of a system is knowing who owns it and knowing who has it and knowing why it’s being transferred,” said Cohn, the ex-chief of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. “The Bitcoin system today has no transparency to it. So there are a lot of people that question, why would you need a system that does not have an audit trail.”Bitcoin’s ‘Integrity’ Flaws May Lead to Failure, Gary Cohn SaysBitcoin was down 3.9% at $18,624.18 as of 8:25 a.m. in New York. The digital currency is still up almost 10% this week. The broader Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index slid 3.9% on Tuesday.Marcus Swanepoel, chief executive of London-based crypto exchange Luno, said Bitcoin will likely enter the $20,000 to $25,000 range before a significant selloff. Then “it’s likely we’d see a 20% to 30% pullback. This is a predictable pattern and there is no reason to not expect it.”Worth less than $1 back in 2010 when it was touted as currency for purchases, Bitcoin has amassed proponents who argue that its strictly controlled supply and wider investor base show it’s become a store of value. Critics, however, say this year’s 160% rally is a bubble that can’t be supported by claims that digital assets should diversify portfolios and take flows from gold.Bitcoin’s surge this week “is likely a result of major institutional investors joining the bandwagon and purchasing a portion of BTC’s limited supply in the midst of a bull run,” said Gunnar Jaerv, chief operating officer of Hong Kong-based custodian First Digital Trust.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
