The United States on Thursday imposed a broad array of sanctions on Russia to punish it for election interference, cyber-hacking, bullying Ukraine and other "malign" acts. Among the actions, President Joe Biden issue an executive order authorizing the U.S. government to sanction any sector of the Russian economy and used it to restrict Russia's ability to issue sovereign debt to punish Moscow for interfering in the 2020 U.S. election. Biden barred U.S. financial institutions from taking part in the primary market for rouble-denominated Russian sovereign bonds from June 14.
Image 1 PLAN MAP OF RECENT DRILLING Image 2 SOUTH ZONE CROSS SECTIONS Image 3 SOUTH ZONE CROSS SECTIONS VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Westhaven Gold Corp. (TSX-V:WHN) is pleased to announce drill results from its ongoing drill campaign at its 17,623-hectare Shovelnose gold property. Shovelnose is located within the prospective Spences Bridge Gold Belt (SBGB), which borders the Coquihalla Highway 30 kilometres south of Merritt, British Columbia. Recent Highlights: SNR21-01 (South Zone: 180.23-232.00m) 51.77 metres (m) of 4.22 g/t gold (Au) and 46.42 g/t silver (Ag), including 27.85m of 7.51 g/t Au and 83.94 g/t Ag. Gareth Thomas, President & CEO of Westhaven Gold, states: “In mid-February we began drilling at the South Zone with a view to completing an inaugural independent resource estimate by late 2021. Prior to the 2021 drilling, the South Zone had a low density of drilling having been drilled at roughly 50 metre spacings. The gold grade and vein thickness of drillhole SNR21-01 (27.85m of 7.51 g/t Au and 83.94 g/t Ag), located twenty-five metres between SN18-15 (46.20 Metres of 8.95 g/t Gold and 65.47 g/t Silver) and SN19-26 (15.46 m of 4.80 g/t Au and 61.21 g/t Ag), further demonstrates the continuity and high-grade nature of Vein Zone 1. Roughly 2 kilometres along strike from the South Zone at the FMN Zone, we continue to intersect gold-silver mineralization. Given our proximity to infrastructure, low drilling costs and recently completed bought deal financing, we are fully financed for our 2021 exploration activities.” FMN Drilling Drilling at FMN, between South Zone and Franz, continues to encounter quartz veining comprising Vein Zone 1 and a second flanking vein zone 200 to 250m southwest of Vein Zone 1, potentially a fourth vein zone. Quartz veining has now been traced continuously from South Zone to FMN for 3.01km. The untested strike length between the FMN and Franz zones currently stands at 560 metres. Peter Fischl, Exploration Manager of Westhaven, adds: “Drilling at FMN is extending the quartz vein system further northwest into the gap between FMN and Franz. The most recent drilling appears to show Vein Zone 1 deflecting somewhat to the north towards an azimuth of 330o, possibly defining a “kink” in the structure. These kinks can be important sites of stronger gold mineralization along structures exhibiting strike-slip movement. The most prominent kink developed in this structure so far is at South Zone.” South Zone Drilling Drill holes SN21-152/154 intersected Vein zone 1 downdip by an additional 140m from previous drilling. Both holes encountered significant quartz veining with anomalous levels of gold and silver, likely due to the vertical control of gold-silver mineralization, typical of epithermal vein systems. These two holes provide some guidance for vectoring upwards to where higher grades may be encountered. In more recent shallow drilling in the South Zone on section 1125, roughly 170m northeast from SNR21-01, in addition to encountering significant quartz veining, hole SNR21-04 (assays pending) also encountered visible gold in drill core.

Tertiary Water and Wastewater Treatment Technologies Market by Type (Membrane Filtration, UV Radiation, Chlorination, Ozonization, Activated Carbon, and Ion Exchange), and Application (Municipal and Industrial) — Global Forecast to 2027Redding, California, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to a new market research report titled “Tertiary Water and Wastewater Treatment Technologies Market by Type (Membrane Filtration, UV Radiation, Chlorination, Ozonization, Activated Carbon, and Ion Exchange), and Application (Municipal and Industrial) — Global Forecast to 2027’, published by Meticulous Research®, the tertiary water and wastewater treatment technologies market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2020 to 2027 to reach $35.5 billion by 2027. Download Free Sample Report Now @ https://www.meticulousresearch.com/download-sample-report/cp_id=5185 Tertiary water and wastewater treatment is carried out to raise the water quality to be in line with domestic and industrial standards or meet specific requirements around the safe discharge of water. It is done to deodorize, decolor and further oxidize if required. There has been an increase in the number of water and wastewater treatment facilities that employ a tertiary treatment process. Tertiary treatment involves removing nutrients, such as phosphorus and nitrogen, from wastewater. The removal of nutrients is an important step in restricting downstream effects, such as algal blooms and eutrophication, which destroy ecosystems and habitats. The major factors driving the tertiary water and wastewater treatment technologies market include the rapid population growth and urbanization, the rising need for new water resources, and the increasing prevalence of waterborne diseases. Moreover, the growing demand for energy-efficient and advanced water treatment technologies provides significant opportunities in this market. However, the high installation, maintenance, and operational costs obstruct the growth of this market to some extent. Also, upgrading and repairing aging water infrastructure are the major challenges for the growth of the tertiary water and wastewater treatment technologies market. The Impact of COVID-19 on the Tertiary Water and Wastewater Treatment Technologies Market The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely hit many economies around the globe. To control the spread of this disease and avoid the related consequences, governments across the globe have announced partial or complete lockdowns, majorly impacting many manufacturing and service industries, including tertiary water and wastewater treatment technologies. Speak to our Analysts to Understand the Impact of COVID-19 on Your Business: https://www.meticulousresearch.com/speak-to-analyst/cp_id=5185 The outbreak of COVID-19 is projected to slow down investments in the water sector worldwide. It has also increased the importance of operational reliability due to the cost of disruption. Many large users of water have downscaled or reduced activities resulting in declining industrial demand. The decline in demand from large industrial and commercial users due to lockdowns and travel restrictions is expected to significantly reduce water utility revenues. A survey by the Global Water Leaders Group estimates that the industrial demand for water will fall by an average of 27% due to COVID-19. Deeper revenue losses are projected across the whole water supply chain, including operators, technology companies, contractors, chemical suppliers, and consultants. Moreover, operations could be affected due to the increased risk of infection among utility staff. Operational continuity and flexibility are key to keeping essential water and sanitation services running while also pushing forward ongoing construction projects. Many governments identified people working in the water and sewerage industry as essential workers, enabling utilities to maintain service continuity. However, social distancing protocols mean that utilities can only retain operationally critical staff onsite. Supply chain and logistics disruptions have also been reported. This scenario has impacted the demand for tertiary water and wastewater treatment technologies. The tertiary water and wastewater treatment technologies market is segmented based on type, application, and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at the country level. Based on type, the membrane filtration segment accounted for the largest share of the overall tertiary water and wastewater treatment technologies market in 2020.

The global e-book market (henceforth, referred to as the market studied) was valued at USD 18. 13 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 23. 12 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 4. 9%, during the forecast period (2021-2026).New York, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "E- Book Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06062846/?utm_source=GNW - Technical development and sophistication of reading devices that provide a similar experience to that of reading an actual book is the key factor driving the global e-book market. The rising adoption of smartphones and multilingual features of E-books is an advantage which is expected to drive the global demand for e-books.- The easy access for a wide range of e-book libraries through application or online services are being consumed over the internet, thus emerging as low-cost alternatives to the traditional method of delivery. Services that are available for these e-books such as e-lending has also supported the adoption of e-book across the globe.- Besides, libraries and publishers are also increasingly receiving responses for e-books. Hachette Book Group, one of the big publishers, has announced that in 2019 the publishing company generated EUR 2.38 billion, which is a 5% increase since 2018.- Furthermore, the environment protection campaigns from governments across the globe especially for saving trees to reduce the use of paper also increases the demand for e-books.- Libraries across the country have closed most of their services to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. But many are still offering electronic reading materials. Moreover due to decreasing cost of the e-books, librariers are now able to buy more copies of the e-books, which is aiding in the market growth.Key Market TrendsIncreased Use of Electronic Devices- Rise in number of portable readable devices such as smart phones and tablets is anticipated to be the major growth factor for the global e-book market. Consumes are preferring e-books over books due to the fragility of books to wear and tear, need of adequate care, and high cost.- Digitization of books and its accessibility over the internet is expected to create an innovative environment to offer real time experience for readers. E-book readers who posses tablets or e-readers are likely to read e-books on those devices however, consumers having computers or cellphones sometimes turn to those platforms, too.- While United States consumers are more likely to adopt the digital technology for their reading activities, German population is also seen increasingly using electronic devices for reading purposes. This demand is further supported by the companies operating in the market. For instance, following Apple Inc., Kobo Inc. added a night-time mode that yellows the screen theregy resting the eyes.- As a result, there is a surge in tablet and e-reader ownership levels and are more prominent in the e-reading scenario.North America Dominates the Market- E-books in North America came early as a natural and permanent choice over printed books for consumers when they want speedy access, and portability. Publishers have also rapidly responded to consumers’ fast-growing acceptance of new reading devices by constantly redefining and expanding new concepts of books.- Furthermore, there is a spike in the ownership of both tablet computers and e-book reading devices such as the original Kindles during the gift-giving season. Moreover, increasing demand for digitalized comic books is projected to drive the market in the region and therefore comic book publishers such as DC Entertainment and MARVEL are expanding their portfolio to follow this trend.- Additionally, in late 2019, the American Library Association (ALA) and Public Library Association (PLA) announced a public campaign in response to recent efforts to limit library access to e-books. During the 2019 Digital Book World conference, ALA debuted an online petition at eBooksForAll.org for members of the public to urge Macmillan Publishers to reverse the proposed embargo on e-books sold to libraries.Competitive LandscapeThe global e-book market is fragmented with many independent authors and publishers, while certain players account for a majority share in the market. Amazon’s KDP, Apple’s iBooks Author, among others hold a dominant share in the global e-books market. Key players in the market adopt strategies such as joint-ventures and partnerships with small and regional publishers to gain higher market shares.- June 2020 - Amazon is currently offering two free months of Kindle Unlimited when someone signs up for the service. Kindle Unlimited is Amazon’s subscription service with a collection of more than one million books, as well as select magazines such as Time and National Geographic, and Audible narration on select titles.- May 2020 - Katha, an Indian organisation that has been producing children’s books since 1988, has partnered with Kindle and has made their 15 books available on the digital platform.Using engaging visuals and imaginative narrations, Katha’s children’s books offer ways of exploring similarities and differences existing in the world.- December 2019 - Smashwords launched Smashwords Presales, a new book launch tool which leverages patent-pending technology to enable the creation, management and merchandising of ebook presales.

SRI continues to innovate in speech processing and artificial intelligence, nurturing the next generation of spinoff venturesMENLO PARK, California, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- April 15, 2021 – SRI International congratulates Nuance Communications on their acquisition by Microsoft for $19.7 billion, making it the second-largest Microsoft acquisition after LinkedIn. Nuance is a market leader in speech recognition and transcription for healthcare and other applications worldwide. Nuance was an early spinoff of SRI’s Speech Technology and Research (STAR) Laboratory, a world leader in audio processing, speech and speaker analytics and spoken language research. The technology that served as the foundation of Nuance’s speech recognition solution started at the STAR Lab and helped launch Nuance more than 20 years ago. “SRI is proud to have been a part of Nuance’s history and commends their achievements in the decades since. We want to wish them the best on the next stage of this journey as part of Microsoft,” said Todd Stavish, Vice President and Managing Director of SRI Ventures. “The technology driving more accurate conversational speech understanding continues to evolve as AI and machine learning are being applied in new and innovative ways. Those early lessons we learned working with the Nuance team continue to guide us today as STAR develops new technology that forms the core of new audio-and speech-related spinoffs backed by SRI Ventures.” Building on the success of SRI spinoffs like Nuance and Siri, SRI Ventures continues to create technology startups that pioneer new applications in the space of audio and language understanding. Decoded Health has developed the world’s first Virtual Medical Resident, which uses AI and natural language processing to assist with patient intake, gathering information about symptoms and medical history to save physicians’ time in making a diagnosis.

Daniel Bunn, vice president of global projects at the Washington D.C.-based Tax Foundation, said it was unclear if such a tax would be prescriptive or binding, and there was a possibility that countries could have separate domestic tax rates for purely local businesses that will be lower than the global minimum tax rate. That means "multinational (firms) will, just because they operate across borders, face a larger tax burden," Bunn told the Reuters Global Markets Forum.
