Residents in the Texas border city of El Paso have been urged to stay home for two weeks as a spike in coronavirus cases overwhelms hospitals, prompting the state to dedicate part of the city's civic center as a makeshift care center for the ill.

(Bloomberg) -- Chile voted overwhelmingly on Sunday to draft a new constitution, launching a two-year struggle over first principles expected to blunt the neo-liberalism that has made it an investor favorite but plunged it into riots over inequality.A larger-than-expected 78.3% backed a fresh charter, a key demand of protesters who took to the streets last year in the largest civil unrest in decades. The current document dates back to the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.The result sets off almost two years of debate and uncertainty before a final vote on a new charter. Many investors fear that a new constitution means Chile will do away with the pro-business rules and fiscal discipline they say created one of Latin America’s most stable and prosperous economies. Protesters say that model -- enshrined in the current charter -- has left millions grappling with low wages, poor social services and injustices.“This plebiscite is not the end, it is the start of a road that we must travel together to agree a new constitution for Chile,” President Sebastian Pinera said in a national address Sunday evening.The referendum was one of several concessions that the government and lawmakers agreed to in order to quell riots that started last October. Sparked by a metro fare increase, the protests quickly spiraled into a broader social movement with grievances ranging from pensions to education. While pandemic-fighting lockdowns kept a lid on tensions most of this year, violent protests flared up again in recent weeks.Read more: Protesters Clash With Chile Police, Burn Church in SantiagoAbout 79% of voters also backed a constitutional convention of newly elected representatives to write up the charter, rather than a mixed convention with 50% of existing lawmakers.“This isn’t a triumph for political parties,” Paulina Astroza, a political analyst from Universidad de Concepcion, said in via Twitter. “Parties will have a huge challenge: they must modernize, clean up, be transparent, allow new leaderships and end with” their strongman tactics.What’s at Stake in Chile Debate Over New Constitution: QuickTakeAfter renewed violence in the run-up to the referendum, voting was peaceful and orderly, with many people lining up for hours to cast their ballot.Thousands later celebrated in the Plaza Italia, the Santiago square that has become the symbolic center of the protest movement. After initially using water cannons and tear gas to deter people taking over the square, the police withdrew.“Until now the constitution has divided us,” Pinera said. “As of today, we must all collaborate so that the new constitution be a great framework for unity, stability and the future.”Two ThirdsChileans will vote again in April to elect delegates to the assembly in charge of writing the new text. To avoid more radical viewpoints from making it into the constitution, legislators agreed on a clause that all articles must be approved by two-thirds of the assembly members.Still, the difficulty in meeting that threshold means Chile could end up “with an excessively abbreviated constitution that would likely fail in bringing greater political stability,” Leonardo Suarez, head of research at brokerage firm LarrainVial, wrote in a report last week.Amid the constitutional process, Chile will also hold a presidential election in November 2021. With the center-left opposition deeply divided and the current government unpopular, the outcome is far from clear.On expectations that a peaceful vote may quell some of the unrest, some investors have started to bet again on the Chilean market.“While the medium-term political uncertainty on the back of the constitutional process and presidential election in 2021 might continue to cap market performance, we do believe that the momentum for the Chilean market is positive,” JPMorgan analyst Diego Celedon said in a note last week.(Updates the vote count in the second paragraph)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.

Recognizing that menstrual health is a critical component of overall health, Lucky Iron Fish has donated units of its iron-fortifying cooking tool to organizations that address menstrual inequality. This simple cooking tool will provide a family with 5 years of natural iron. This menstrual cup provides a better period experience for many years.Toronto, ON, Oct. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Periods play a major role in girls and women facing additional barriers in our society. Its impact extends to various facets of everyday life. Did you know over 100 million girls miss school globally, primarily due to lack of menstrual equity? Girls and women are also most commonly impacted by iron deficiency - often caused due to blood loss from menstruation. Iron deficiency is closely linked to cognitive development, learning ability, and earning capability. However, basic access to period products and access to nutrition is out of reach for millions of people living on low-income or in rural areas. The pandemic has only exacerbated the issue. 1 out of 3 Canadians under the age of 25 cannot afford menstrual products. In the U.S and U.K , ⅓ people struggled to buy period products during the pandemic. To do their part in addressing this issue, Lucky Iron Fish joined with DivaCup to donate units to two local organizations that need it most. Lucky Iron Fish Enterprises (LIFE) is donating 640 units of their reusable cooking tool that provide families with extra iron. Along with them, DivaCup is also donating 300 units of their reusable menstrual cups designed to provide a better period experience. The two organizations receiving these donations are: * TRUE NORTH AID, who support 9 different First Nations communities in Northern Ontario, Quebec, and North West Territories with free period products. * CHANGING THE FLOW, a Canadian social enterprise dedicated to raising awareness and implementing programs to achieve menstrual equity. “I am a firm believer that businesses have a responsibility to solve some of the world's greatest challenges. Hunger and malnutrition are a massive global problem, and the pandemic has only compounded the issue as we see that low-income communities are suffering the most,” said Lucky Iron Fish CEO Gavin Armstrong. “No one should have to sacrifice basic necessities such as nutrition or hygiene. We are pleased to support these two incredible local organizations that are tirelessly supporting Canadian communities in need.” As a social enterprise committed to alleviating iron deficiency and improving the health of communities around the world, LIFE recognizes that menstrual health is a critical component of overall health.

Dublin, Oct. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ResearchAndMarkets.com published a new article on the recycling industry "Companies Look to Recycled Minerals as Sustainable Future for Batteries"Key minerals for battery manufacturing such as cobalt, lithium and nickel are typically mined from the earth but factors such as a push to reduce Co2 emissions and concern about a dwindling supply of raw materials have led to a greater interest in battery recycling. Companies like Redwood Materials and Li Cycle aim to create a circular supply chain which recovers key materials from spent batteries or from scrap generated during battery production and recirculates them to battery manufacturers. This greatly reduces the need for minerals to be mined and provides a practical solution for the disposal of e waste. Redwood Materials has announced a partnership with Panasonic which operates a gigafactory to produce EV batteries for Tesla. This year, Redwood Materials will recycle more than 1 gigawatt hours worth of battery scrap materials from the gigafactory which is enough to power over 10,000 Tesla cars. Meanwhile, Li Cycle has announced that construction on its New York battery recycling hub will begin in 2021. The recycling hub will allow spent batteries to be processed into black mass from which battery grade materials are then refined.To see the full article and a list of related reports on the market, visit "Companies Look to Recycled Minerals as Sustainable Future for Batteries"About ResearchAndMarkets.com ResearchAndMarkets.com is the world's leading source for international market research reports and market data.
