Stocks moved between gains and losses on Tuesday as a growing number of Covid-19 cases weighed on sentiment. But the major averages are still on pace to finish the quarter sharply higher. The Dow and S&P are on track to post their largest quarterly gains since 1998, while the Nasdaq is tracking for its best quarter since 2001.
Bitcoin has traded in an ever-tightening range for two months, and digital-market analysts say a new wave of coronavirus cases and emergency measures could provoke the largest cryptocurrency by market cap out of the doldrums.
The backdrop is an anemic economy, with the International Monetary Fund projecting last week that global output will shrink 4.9% this year: worse than its April forecast for 3% contraction. Confirmed deaths from the coronavirus passed half a million on Sunday, and authorities from China to the U.S. states of Florida and Texas enacted new restrictions to curb rising caseloads. The World Health Organization has also warned the worst is yet to come.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Prime Mining Corp. (TSX.V:PRYM) (OTCQB: PRMNF) (Frankfurt:A2PRDW) (“Prime” or the “Company”) announced today that results from the Company’s ongoing surface exploration program continue to show significant mineralization at surface on the Los Reyes project, this time from the Tahonitas deposit, one of eight currently known adjacent gold-silver deposits. The Los Reyes mineralized zones are characterized by a low sulphide epithermal system containing silica stockwork veins that are generally formed in felsic subaerial complexes in extensional strike slip structural settings. Low sulphidation gold deposits are associated with magmas where ore deposition occurs several kilometres above the intrusion, and display certain alteration assemblages.
Most companies fear competition from a rival’s product innovations and the risk of falling behind their industry’s technological frontier. Firms affected by such competitive pressure usually react by trying to strengthen their R&D capabilities and close the gap between their and their rival’s technologies as quickly as possible. But how exactly can firms catch up? Our research shows that rather than innovating from scratch in house or partnering with others in strategic alliances, the most effective solution may be to buy access to an already existing technology and incorporate it into your R&D.
Dutch patients have been able to access medical cannabis through pharmacies since September 2003. The supply and production of medical cannabis in the Netherlands is overseen by the Office of Medicinal Cannabis (OMC), a division of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. Legal medicinal cannabis in the Netherlands is grown by a professional company in accordance with standards outlined in the European Directives on Herbal Medicines, which set stringent regulatory requirements governing the pharmaceutical quality of medical grade cannabis.
Unit9 director Martin Percy took charge of this engaging and sophisticated interactive video that shows people what they can do to help a person with suicidal thoughts. Unit9’s own videoPlayer enables the video to play across various types of devices.
Beginning with the insight that simply giving information is not the same as training people for what to do in a crisis, the video pauses at several stages and invites the user to pick from multiple choice the best course of action. For example, when the video’s visibly troubled male subject tells his flatmate to go to a party without him, you are supposed to detect all is not well and offer (or other, insist) to stay to talk. Every option is based on insights from suicide prevention experts and the value of this shines through such as when you have to get the man to confirm he is thinking about suicide (because he might not even have realised it yet) – not something that non-trained people would necessarily think to do.
Albert Einstein the theorist or Albert Einstone’s the cannabis mastermind? Let your educated palate be the judge. From the first moment that I tasted an El Blunto, with its intricately woven indoor-grown flower, augmented with a hand-crafted all natural wrap and glass filter tip, the passion of its makers was clearly evident. They get me quite lifted, therefore creative. I can say, with all honesty, that these cannabis pre-rolls do their job quite effectively. They inspire me!
Wireless network equipment vendors are quivering with anticipation over the C-band, a massive chunk of spectrum hitting the US market later this year that could generate billions of dollars in 5G equipment sales.
Omdia analyst Daryl Schoolar estimated that each US operator that decides to build a nationwide network with C-band spectrum would need to spend between $3 billion and $3.6 billion for the wireless equipment necessary to broadcast 5G signals in the band. Schoolar’s calculation assumes three-sector cell sites using either 64T64R or 32T32R active MIMO antenna units, as well as a baseband module. He said cables, power, shelter, tower and construction expenses are not included in that estimate.
