Reuters/Eloisa LopezA lot of world leaders have taken their COVID-19 vaccines on camera to help show the public that it’s completely safe and painless. But the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, is reportedly refusing to take part in that effort—because he wants to take the shot in his butt. According to the Manila Bulletin, the strongman’s spokesperson, Harry Roque, confirmed at a televised press conference that his boss fully intends to be injected in the ass. “He said since he wants to be injected in the buttocks, it cannot be public,” Roque told reporters. Dr. Tony Leachon, a former adviser to the country’s COVID-19 task force, lamented the president’s decision, writing on Twitter: “The big challenge is to convince the public to get vaccinated. It’s unfortunate Duterte has chosen his buttocks.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Dublin, Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Carbon Neutral Data Center Market - A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Carbon Neutral Data Center Types & Solutions, End-Use Industry, Government Programs, Trends, Opportunities and Country Analysis" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The carbon neutral data center market is projected to grow from $3.46 billion in 2020 to $9.42 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 22.17% from 2020 to 2025. The growth in the carbon neutral data center market is expected to be driven by various government policies and environmental regulations especially which are aligned to reducing carbon emissions, for example, the International Climate Agreement. Apart from this, the ongoing trend of Industry 4.0 and digital transformation, which has increased the amount of data being produced due to the data intensive nature of the applications, has significantly impacted the market.The carbon neutral data center market by industry has the largest share in the IT and telecom industry, followed by the BFSI industry. The IT and telecom industry or the ICT industry is a data-driven industry. Almost all the applications are data intensive and generate a huge amount of data in the entire value chain. The telecom industry is dependent upon data centers as data transmission during internet services requires constant storage and processing, which is a primary criterion for quality services. Thus, in order to maintain quality, the industry has to rely on data center facilities.The hyperscale data centers have the highest potential in the carbon neutral data center market by data center type. It is expected to be the most impacted type as most of the hyperscale operators and service providers such as Google and Microsoft have pledged to achieve carbon neutrality in their entire value chain by 2030. The companies have shown that lower PUE levels are possible to achieve with the use of efficient technologies utilizing renewable energy in the entirety of data center operations. Apart from this, the ongoing trend of cloud migration has also helped the market for hyperscale data center types. The colocation type data center is accounted for the second-largest share in the market. The ongoing trend of digitization and the development of various technologies such as extended reality, internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and other enabling technologies have helped many start-ups to grow. These start-ups do not have much financial support to own and operate a data center that supports their operations. This is where the colocation data centers become a solution for the needs of various smaller organizations with data center demands.The hardware segment has the highest share among other solutions and is expected to remain the largest contributor in the market (by carbon neutral solution). Every data center has a set of hardware equipment and devices which form the basis of data center operations. These include servers, power and cooling equipment, storage, and networking devices. All these devices are crucial for a data center. Among these devices, servers consume almost half of the total power consumed by the data centers, followed by the cooling and power equipment. During the forecast period, the power consumed by the cooling and power segment is expected to reduce due to the increase in demand for efficient cooling systems. Impact of COVID-19 on Carbon Neutral Data Center MarketCOVID-19 has restricted the growth of almost every industry globally owing to the measures such as lockdown and travel restrictions undertaken by the governments. Due to this, the entire supply chain of the data center industry has been negatively affected. This has restricted the flow of various equipment and devices, which are essential for data center operations, due to which many data centers were not able to get commissioned, and many projects were stalled. The lockdown also restricted people from traveling, which disallowed many data center architects and engineers to reach onsite for the construction of new facilities and maintenance of existing facilities. The server utilization rate was also affected due to the halt in various computing activities in almost every industry. Many operators have reported that almost half of the servers were online during the pandemic. However, industries such as telecom, which is the largest consumer of data center, operated in their fullest capacity and thus maintained the demand for data transmission and transfer services. This has also helped the industry to maintain a minimum operational return from the online services.Key Carbon Neutral Data Center Companies Profiled 3M Company, ABB Group, Cisco Systems Inc., Eaton Corporation plc., Dell Inc., IBM Corporation, Intel Corporation, Digital Realty Trust Inc., Equinix, Alibaba Group, Amazon.com Inc, Alphabet Inc., Microsoft Corporation, Fujitsu Ltd., Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)Key Questions Answered in this Report: How will the data center market transition to green data centers and further into carbon neutral data centers?

The Tokyo Olympics will top the agenda when the International Olympic Committee's executive board meets on Wednesday - but with the board firmly backing the event, any talk of scrapping it altogether due to the COVID-19 pandemic is highly unlikely. Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is sticking to his government's commitment to host the Games, with officials last week dismissing a report in Britain's Times newspaper that Tokyo had abandoned hope of holding the event this year. Opinion polls in Japan show the public is strongly against staging the Games amid the pandemic, however.

According to provisional figures from book sales monitors Nielsen, Britons bought more than 200 million books last year, an annual increase of over five per cent. That’s real books, print books, not downloadable ones. It’s especially brilliant because bookshops were shut for about five months last year and now they’re shut again. According to The Bookseller, in the first week in which bookshops reopened in June, sales were up 31 per cent over the same period the year before.
