Venezuela will hold parliamentary elections this Sunday in a vote that the United States, European Union and many citizens view as a fraudulent effort by the ruling socialist party to seize control of the last institution in opposition hands. The opposition, led by National Assembly speaker Juan Guaido, is boycotting the vote on the grounds that it will be rigged in favor of President Nicolas Maduro's allies. Sunday's vote will likely see Maduro's allies win a majority, strengthening his grip on power, despite a nearly two-year U.S.-led campaign of sanctions and diplomatic pressure and an economic collapse that has prompted a humanitarian crisis.
Mining giant Glencore said Friday that it aims to stop adding greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere by 2050. The Anglo-Swiss company, which is one of the world's biggest miners of coal, said it plans to cut emissions from all parts of its business by 40% in the next 15 years compared with 2019 levels, before going to ‘net zero’ by mid-century. The term net zero means Glencore will only emit as much carbon dioxide and other planet-warming gases as can be absorbed again through technological and natural means.
Arzamasova, who won gold at the 2015 worlds, was tested out of competition in 2019 and a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) laboratory reported an adverse finding after discovering the presence of an anabolic agent on the Prohibited List. Arzamasova, 32, was provisionally suspended in August last year and after her B sample also returned a positive test she told the AIU that her supplements had been contaminated. "The Disciplinary Panel... imposes a period of ineligibility of four years upon the athlete for the ADRV, commencing on 29 July 2019 and concluding at midnight on 28 July 2023," the AIU said in its decision.

(Bloomberg) -- Oil faded from session highs after U.S. labor-market data showed the recovery markedly slowing last month in a warning sign for crude demand.Futures were little changed in New York after rising as much as 2.3% on Friday. The U.S. benchmark is poised to post its fifth straight weekly gain. The dimming rebound in the U.S. labor market comes as the country sets new daily records in virus cases and as tougher restrictions crimp consumption for oil.The U.S. labor market data “put the brakes a little bit on the rally that we’ve seen in oil,” said Phil Streible, chief market strategist at Blue Line Futures LLC in Chicago. “Certain areas of the jobs number indicate an impact on gasoline and oil demand.”Still, U.S. benchmark crude futures are on track to eke out a weekly gain after OPEC+ reached a compromise agreement that offers something for members concerned about the fragility of the market as well as nations who want to pump more to take advantage of higher prices. Oil has reached March highs recently amid optimism over an impending vaccine rollout lifting demand next year.See also: OPEC+ Show of Unity on Output Deal Welcomed by Oil AnalystsThe oil futures curve, meanwhile, is signaling tighter supply as demand in Asia booms and the key North Sea market strengthens. The prompt timespread for Brent crude moved back into backwardation, while the nearest December contract is trading at a higher level than the same contract for December 2022.“Asian demand is absolutely roofing right now,” Amrita Sen, co-founder of consultant Energy Aspects Ltd., said in a Bloomberg TV interview. “If this momentum continues, we could actually see the oversupply disappear a lot earlier than what we’re expecting.”Hopes for another round of fiscal stimulus in the U.S. are providing an additional support to prices. Despite the demand implications from a slowing labor-market rebound, the disappointing figures could serve as a stark warning to lawmakers surrounding the potential cost of a failure to reach an agreement.However, the rally in headline crude prices isn’t a welcome sign for every corner of the market. Europe’s beleaguered oil refineries are struggling to pass on the higher cost to buyers as they face weak fuel demand due to the pandemic. In the U.S., the combined refining margin for gasoline and diesel remains near $9 a barrel at its lowest in roughly a decade for this time of year.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Snowflake Inc. is doing well by any stretch of the imagination.On Wednesday, the cloud-computing company reported that third-quarter revenue more than doubled from a year earlier, and its stock has surged more than 200% since its Sept. 15 initial public offering.That has helped make Chief Executive Officer Frank Slootman one of the best-paid technology executives. A compensation package he received upon joining Snowflake in April 2019 awards him a batch of options every month -- for four years -- that are now worth almost $95 million each, or about $1.1 billion annually.Slootman’s pay includes more than 13.7 million options with a strike price of $8.88. The vast majority can already be exercised but the underlying shares vest monthly over four years, beginning with the month he started.He also gets a $375,000 annual base salary, which can go higher depending on the firm’s performance.Once the full options package is paid out in early 2023, it would be worth about $4.5 billion based on Thursday’s closing stock price. Snowflake shares surged again friday, advancing 9.7% to $373 at 10:23 a.m. in New York.A spokeswoman for San Mateo, California-based Snowflake declined to comment on Slootman’s pay package or net worth.Read more: Snowflake Gains as Analysts Boost Targets on Surging RevenueHe hasn’t exercised any of his options and his shares are subject to a lockup period that ends in March.The monster pay package is partly a result of Snowflake’s surging valuation. In October 2018, about six months before Slootman joined and negotiated his compensation, the company raised funds at a valuation of about $3.5 billion. It’s now worth $96 billion.Chief Financial Officer Michael Scarpelli, who joined a few months after Slootman, has a similar compensation structure. His options are worth about $25 million a month at the current share price. Snowflake co-founder Benoit Dageville, who’s also chief technology officer, owns a $2.73 billion stake.Snowflake is the third CEO gig for the Dutch-born Slootman in less than 20 years. He led data-storage firm Data Domain from 2003 until its takeover by EMC Corp. in 2009, then ran cloud-service firm ServiceNow Inc. from 2011 to 2017.(Updates share price in sixth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
