Oslo, 13 May 2021 – DNO ASA, the Norwegian oil and gas operator, today reported that Kurdistan’s Minister of Natural Resources has informed the international oil companies operating in the region of an intention to extend the payment period for arrears built up from non-payment of certain invoices in 2019 and 2020.

The Minister also advised that all international oil company invoices, including towards withheld amounts, will now be settled within 60 days of receipt.

Accelerazione della campagna vaccinale anti-Covid in Italia. Al via da lunedì 17 maggio in Italia le prenotazioni per gli over 40. L'anuncio del commissario per l'emergenza, Francesco Figliuolo. Entro il fine settimana arriveranno altre 3 milioni di dosi e l'Ema conferma il richiamo Pfizer fino a 42 giorni. Continua intanto il calo della curva epidemiologica con 7.852 contagi e 262 morti registrati nelle ultime 24 ore e con l'indice di positività che è al 2,5%. VACCINO OVER 40 Nell’ambito del monitoraggio del piano vaccinale, che sta registrando un buon andamento su scala nazionale delle somministrazioni in favore delle categorie prioritarie indicate nell’ordinanza n. 6 dello scorso 9 aprile, la Struttura Commissariale guidata dal generale Francesco Figliuolo ha dato facoltà alle Regioni e Province Autonome di avviare, a partire dal prossimo 17 maggio, le prenotazioni anche per i cittadini over 40. Viene ribadita l’assoluta necessità di continuare a mantenere particolare attenzione per i soggetti fragili, le classi di età over 60, i cittadini che presentano comorbilità, fino a garantirne la massima copertura. FIGLIUOLO "Sull'arrivo di nuovi vaccini l'Italia deve attendere l'approvazione di Ema e di Aifa. Sono sicuramente tutti ben accetti per l'immunizzazione della popolazione e in particolare dei ragazzi. Ai genitori vanno date informazioni precise per avere un'adesione completa". Lo ha spiegato il commissario straordinario all'emergenza Covid, Francesco Paolo Figliuolo, parlando del via libera negli Usa al vaccino per la fascia 12-15 anni, nel corso della sua visita al Palazzo dell'Informazione, sede dell'Adnkronos, dove questa mattina ha incontrato l'editore Giuseppe Marra, il presidente Michele Adinolfi e il direttore Gian Marco Chiocci.

Electric car maker Tesla will stop accepting Bitcoin as a payment due to concerns about the environmental impact of the cryptocurrency. Bitcoin, the world’s largest digital currency, saw its value drop about 5 per cent to $51,847 (£36,883) after CEO Elon Musk tweeted the news. Tesla said in February that it had invested around $1.5 billion (£1.07 billion) in Bitcoin and it planned to begin accepting the digital currency as payment “soon”.

For Brown University students, the Ivy League college's next step in its yearslong quest to atone for its legacy of slavery is clear: Pay up. Nearly two decades after the Providence, Rhode Island, institution launched its much-lauded reckoning, undergraduate students this spring voted overwhelmingly for the university to identify the descendants of slaves that worked on campus and begin paying them reparations. At the University of Georgia, community activists want the school to contribute to Athens' efforts to atone for an urban renewal project that destroyed a Black community in the 1960s to make way for college dorms.

Weary Palestinians on Thursday prepared for a somber feast marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, as Gaza braced for more Israeli airstrikes and communal violence raged across Israel after weeks of protests and violence in Jerusalem. The latest outburst of Mideast violence has reached deeper into Israel than any since the 2000 Palestinian intifada, or uprising. The last three wars between Israel and Gaza's militant Hamas rulers were largely confined to the impoverished and blockaded Palestinian territory and Israeli communities on the frontier.
Sexual offences and violent crimes are set to increase by a fifth on pre-pandemic levels over the next two years, according to a new study. The projections suggest sex and violence recorded by police will rise by 13 per cent next year and 20 per cent in 2023 compared with 2019, according to the analysis by Poliscope - a joint project from criminal justice consultancy Crest Advisory and Justice Episteme, specialists in data science. Drugs offences and public order crimes, which include harassment, violent disorder, affray and being drunk and disorderly, are likely to go up as well. However, burglary, which has been in decline since the mid-1990s, is expected to fall even further, with a 31 per cent reduction next year and 35 per cent in 2023, compared to 2019. There is also likely to be a significant drop in robberies over the next two years, taking numbers roughly back to levels seen in 2014, with the overall number of all offences down slightly. The projections were calculated by analysing crime figures uploaded by 42 police forces in England and Wales on the website www.data.police.uk. Statistics from City of London Police and British Transport Police were not included. Data experts then used a collection of individual forecasting methods - an approach known as ‘hybrid’ or ‘ensemble’ - to arrive at a best estimate for the future. Compared to a 2019 baseline, the forecasts anticipate increases of: Violent and sexual offences: 13 per cent in 2022, 20 per cent in 2023 Public order offences: six per cent in 2022, 10 per cent in 2023 Drugs offences: four per cent in 2022, four per cent in 2023 By contrast, compared to 2019, there are expected to be decreases in: All offences: three per cent in 2022, four per cent in 2023 Robbery: 21 per cent in 2022, 21 per cent in 2023 Burglary: 31 per cent in 2022, 35 per cent in 2023
