Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co is weighing plans to pump tens of billions of dollars more into cutting-edge chip factories in the U.S. state of Arizona than it had previously disclosed, but is cool on prospects for an advanced European plant, people familiar with the matter told Reuters. TSMC is the world's most advanced chip-maker, and its investment plans are being closely watched amid a global chip shortage and new initiatives in the U.S. and Europe to subsidize semiconductor production. TSMC announced last year that it would invest $10 billion to $12 billion to build a chip factory in Phoenix.

When London’s Science Museum reopens next week, it will have some new artifacts: empty vaccine vials, testing kits and other items collected during the pandemic, to be featured in a new COVID-19 exhibition. Thanks to an efficient vaccine rollout program, Britain is finally saying goodbye to months of tough lockdown restrictions. Deaths in Britain have come down to single digits in recent days.
Thousands of Brazilians on Thursday thronged the streets of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo to protest against racism and police brutality after 28 people were killed in an anti-drug raid in a Rio favela last week. The police operation was the deadliest ever carried out by the country’s security forces. According to witnesses, many of the victims were unarmed. FRANCE 24 reports from the Rio demonstration. “In Brazil there is no death penalty, only in the favelas!” David Miranda, a federal deputy of the left-wing Socialism and Liberty Party (PSOL) yells into his megaphone as he leads the thousands of mostly Afro-Brazilian demonstrators through the streets of Rio de Janeiro to protest against police brutality.According to the United Nations, racism remains a structural problem in Brazil. Some 80 percent of people killed in Brazilian police raids are Afro-Brazilians.“Two of my cousins died during a police raid,” one of the demonstrators told FRANCE 24. “Every day, the police come in the favelas to kill."Click on the player above to watch the full report.
Proponendosi ieri di puntare su criptovalute molto meno energivore del bitcoin e ribadendo con tre rapidi Tweet oggi (“è l'ora di una carbon tax” e “credo fermamente nelle criptovalute ma non possono determinare un massiccio aumento nell'uso dei combustibili fossili, soprattutto di carbone”, "Collaborare con gli sviluppatori di Doge per migliorare l'efficienza delle transazioni di sistema"), Elon Musk ha fatto vibrare il valore del bitcoin che, a due ore dal primo cinguettio a gamba tesa, è sceso quasi del 20% per poi riassestarsi verso i 50mila dollari. Anche se, in mezzo, ha rincarato la dose pubblicando, sempre su Twitter, un grafico con il Cambridge Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index e commentando “La tendenza degli ultimi mesi nell'uso di energia è folle”. Il dibattito apocalittici-integrati prosegue a ondate, tra i sostenitori dello spreco di risorse per la produzione di criptovalute e chi invece ne ridimensiona la portata. Il tutto mentre bitcoin e le altre acquistano progressivamente un ruolo come bene rifugio, anche e proprio in questi giorni segnati dai dati sull’inflazione Usa, che ad aprile è schizzata del +4,2%, il dato più alto dal 2008 (e molto oltre le attese degli analisti), trainata dalla ripresa dei consumi post lockdown e dalla corsa dei prezzi delle materie prime, anche a causa della carenza nei rifornimenti. Ha spiegato Gianclaudio Torlizzi, direttore generale della società di consulenza T-Commodity: “L'attività di mining attualmente incide per lo 0,6% del consumo mondiale di energia elettrica equiparabile a paese come la Nuova Zelanda. Se volessimo stilare una classifica, il mining di bitcoin occuperebbe il ventinovesimo posto nella classifica dei paesi più inquinanti. La decisione di Tesla sortirà tuttavia anche un impatto di più ampio raggio in quanto contribuirà ad allentare la tensione che oggi insiste nel mercato dei semiconduttori primi (responsabili sia del calo della produzione di auto a cui abbiamo assistito negli ultimi mesi) sia della carenza di container nel mercato dello shipping. Ciò dovrebbe contribuire a dare il via a un raffreddamento del prezzo delle materie prime”. Una voce che consiglia di spostare il problema più a monte è quella di Ferdinando Ametrano, che insegna Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology all'Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca ed è CEO di CheckSig. Come ha spiegato in uno dei suoi recenti interventi di CryptoWeek: un'anima green per le criptovalute? “Non credo sia realizzabile. Da due punti di vista. Possiamo ridurre i consumi? No. I consumi sono correlati alla crescita del Pil. Più ricchezza uguale più energia. Non possiamo ridurne l'impiego. Dobbiamo trovare modi di produrla che siano rinnovabili e sostenibili. La preoccupazioni vanno spostate dalla riduzione dei consumi alla sostenibilità nella produzione di energia”. Anche perché, sempre Musk, quando nel primo trimestre del 2021 ha deciso di acquistare con Tesla criptovalute per un valore di 1,5 miliardi di dollari, il bitcoin consumava più o meno quanto consuma adesso, tanto o poco che sia. Certo, stando tra le cripto più diffuse, Etehreum (la seconda dopo Bitcoin) ha un rapporto energia/transazione che è meno della metà della rivale. Ma se è vero che Bitcoin è la criptovaluta che consuma più energia, è anche vero che sembra stia progressivamente spostando il grosso della produzione dalla Cina e dai paesi dove le fonti energetiche sono i combustibili fossili a luoghi dove l’energia è più economica, ma anche sostenibile e rinnovabile come Islanda, Norvegia, Canada e alcune zone della Russia. Aprile 2021 è stato infatti il primo mese degli ultimi 8 anni in cui l'hash rate di BTC, ovvero di potenza computazionale necessaria per le attività di mining (e quindi di consumi), proveniente dalla Cina è stato inferiore a quello proveniente dall'esterno del paese. Un dato certificato ancora una volta dal Cambridge Bitcoin Electricity Consumption Index. Ma esistono delle cripto green? Esistono delle valute digitali che puntano, in modo diretto o indiretto, alla condivisione dei software e alla specificità dell'uso di energia pulita. CureCoin, criptovaluta progettata per sostenere la ricerca scientifica, premia il lavoro condiviso. Chi vuole offrire potenza di calcolo può scaricare i software e mettere a disposizione il proprio, anche domestico, per il mining, ottenendo una ricompensa in CureCoin. Altre valute generano incentivi per gli impianti fotovoltaici: Solarcoin crea 1 token per ogni Megawatt/ora generato tramite energia solare, ripagando così gli impianti. Altri, come BitGreen, usano protocolli a minor consumo energetico, oltre a ripagare gli utenti per le loro azioni ecologiche che vanno dal carpooling agli acquisti sostenibili.
Despite best efforts, a "very virulent" variant of COVID-19 "broke through" the layers of defense at Changi Airport.
Manchester City will have to make do without Kevin de Bruyne as they take on Newcastle in the Premier League this evening. Elsewhere, John Stones is available again and should come in, potentially replacing Aymeric Laporte though Ruben Dias could be rested. Phil Foden, Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva were on the bench for the loss to Thomas Tuchel's side so should also come back in.

(Bloomberg) -- Oil headed for the biggest weekly drop since early April as countries in Asia continue to fight persistent Covid-19 outbreaks, highlighting the patchy recovery from the pandemic even as U.S. demand picks up.West Texas Intermediate fell 0.6%, taking the week’s loss to more than 2%, the most since the period to April 9. Singapore will reimpose curbs, Japan plans to extend restrictions, and China saw its first infections in about a month, just as key oil importer India continues to report more than 300,000 cases a day. Crude’s weakness on Friday came amid a broad retreat in commodities.While oil has rallied this year as the roll-out of vaccines aids demand, the gains have stalled since early March amid virus flare-ups in parts of Asia, especially India. This week’s decline in prices has come despite a positive market assessment from the International Energy Agency that showed the global glut that built up last year has been cleared. In addition, Federal Reserve policy makers signaled continued backing for the U.S. economy.“The rising cases in India and some parts of Southeast Asia and Latin America illustrate risks to oil demand,” said Victor Shum, vice president of energy consulting for IHS Markit, commenting before Singapore’s raft of fresh restrictions were announced. “But the general market has great expectations for demand to materialize later this year.”Beyond Asia, the recovery in the U.S. is on a more solid footing, boding well for energy consumption in the world’s largest economy. In a sign of progress on Thursday, President Joe Biden’s administration announced that fully vaccinated Americans can ditch masks in most settings.In a sign of India’s sustained struggle with the latest outbreak, some local ports, including Karaikal in Pondicherry, have declared force majeure due to staffing shortages. Still, major refiner Indian Oil Corp. has issued three tenders to buy oil for loading in the next two months.“The movement of oil, commodities and equities over the last few days were related and tied to fears of inflation and compounded with the shutdown in Colonial Pipeline,” said Shum, referring to the U.S. products pipeline that was forced offline by a cyberattack. It has since started to resume flows.Brent’s prompt timespread was 18 cents a barrel in backwardation. While that’s a bullish pattern -- with near-term prices above those further out -- it’s down from 49 cents two weeks ago.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

The origin of the novel coronavirus is still unclear and there is not yet enough evidence to say conclusively if it occurred naturally or was caused by a laboratory leak, a group of leading scientists said in a letter. The novel coronavirus, which emerged in China in late 2019, has killed 3.34 million people, cost the world trillions of dollars in lost income and upended daily life for billions of people. "More investigation is still needed to determine the origin of the pandemic," said the 18 scientists, including Ravindra Gupta, a clinical microbiologist at the University of Cambridge and Jesse Bloom, who studies the evolution of viruses at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Hear me out: why Hudson Hawk isn’t a bad movieThe latest in our series of writers sticking up for maligned movies is a defence of the idiosyncratic Bruce Willis action adventure flop Bruce Willis and Danny Aiello in Hudson Hawk, the type of bombastic, star-driven film-making that has largely disappeared from Hollywood.
