SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is bringing broadband satellite internet to the world. Judging from comments recently made by SpaceX President and Chief Operating Officer Gwynne Shotwell at the Satellite 2021 Low Earth Orbit Digital Forum, it seems $30 billion could be the lowball estimate. Speaking virtually at the LEO Digital Forum last Tuesday, Shotwell reiterated SpaceX's plans to -- at least initially -- focus Starlink on providing internet broadband to rural customers.

World powers should draw "clear red lines" with Russia and consider possible sanctions against Moscow when they're crossed, French President Emmanuel Macron told U.S. news network CBS in an interview. "We have to define clear red lines with Russia," Macron said, according to a video excerpt of the interview to be aired later on Sunday. Macron's remarks departed from France's previous stance on Russia and shifted the country closer to its U.S. ally.

Terrence James, 49, of Galveston, Texas, died on Feb. 19, 2021, after becoming ill with COVID-19. He is among the more than 565,000 Americans who have succumbed to the disease since the first known fatality in the United States in early 2020. His wife, Ebony James, told Yahoo News that her husband was a man of faith who loved God and his family fearlessly and that he was also passionate about helping people. “If someone were to tell him about an issue or concern that they had, he would always listen. He never missed an opportunity to say, ‘OK, let's pray for it right now,” Ebony said, adding that her husband “always made an effort to let people know that he cared.”
On the frontline in Ukraine's east, battle-weary soldiers are sceptical that US sanctions against Moscow and Kiev's appeal for NATO help will deter Russian strongman Vladimir Putin. Faced with the largest deployment of Russian troops on Ukraine's borders since 2014, President Volodymyr Zelensky has requested more tangible help from the West, but many Ukrainian troops say they know they are on their own. "We should only count on ourselves," Taras Mykytsey, a 52-year-old soldier, told AFP in the frontline village of Zaytseve north of the separatist stronghold Donetsk.The separatists, who have carved out two "People's Republics" in eastern Ukraine, are backed by Russia."While we are waiting for something to be sent to us, Putin will not wait," added Mykytsey, sporting a helmet and a bulletproof vest.Yuriy, a 29-year-old senior sergeant based near the town of Shchastya in the neighbouring Lugansk region, struck a similar note, saying he did not expect Western boots on the ground any time soon."What foreign country would want to send its people to their death?" he said.Yuriy, who declined to give his last name, added that the Russian president would not buckle."Sanctions and negotiations can, of course, restrain Russia a little, but in general, these negotiations for Putin, it's like throwing sand against the wind," he said.US President Joe Biden has pledged his "unwavering support" to Zelensky, and Washington this week hit Moscow with new sanctions over US election interference and other hostile activity.After talks in Paris on Friday with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the Ukranian leader called for a four-way summit with Putin and the resumption of a ceasefire upended by a recent spate of clashes between Kiev troops and the separatists.'Ready for any scenario' Under a grey spring sky, birdsong can be heard on the frontline but the tranquil spell cannot mask a spike in tensions and near daily clashes.Around 30 Ukrainian troops have been killed since the start of the year, compared to 50 last year. Most of them were victims of sniper fire.This week, "a soldier was killed and two others from our battalion were wounded" in an explosion, said 43-year-old Yuriy, speaking to AFP in the trenches near Zaytseve.Yuriy, who also declined to give his last name, said the explosion was caused by a Russian-made landmine. The Ukrainian military accuses Moscow of seeking to provoke a situation that would justify an armed operation."The enemy's task is to cause as many losses as possible and provoke return fire," Viktor Ganushchak, the deputy commander of Ukraine's military operation in the east, told AFP in the town of Avdiivka, some six kilometres (four miles) north of Donetsk.Russia has denied sending weapons and soldiers across the border and says its troop movements do not pose a threat to anyone.More than 13,000 people have been killed in a conflict which broke out after a popular uprising in Kiev ousted a Kremlin-backed president and Moscow moved to annex Crimea in 2014.Some Ukrainian soldiers were hard-pressed to explain the Russian show of muscle, with others dismissing it as mere sabre-rattling."If it were an assault, it would be done more quietly without so much fuss," said Yuriy, the senior sergeant.Mykytsey said Russia's plans were anyone's guess."Are they preparing for an assault or are these military exercises?" he said. "Our task is to prevent them from going any further. We have people and there are enough weapons."Over the past seven years, Ukraine has overhauled its army thanks to Western help, and Kiev's battle-hardened soldiers say they are ready for a repeat of Moscow's 2014 aggression."We are ready for any scenario," said Ganushchak. "This is our land, we will defend it."(AFP)
NASA hopes to score a 21st-century Wright Brothers moment on Monday as it attempts to send a miniature helicopter buzzing over the surface of Mars in what would be the first powered, controlled flight of an aircraft on another planet. A modest debut is likewise in store for NASA's twin-rotor, solar-powered helicopter Ingenuity. While the mere metrics may seem less than ambitious, the "air field" for the interplanetary test flight is 173 million miles from Earth, on the floor of a vast Martian basin called Jezero Crater.

The term generally refers to companies that are highly sensitive to the economy, and it historically conjures up images of smokestack industries like steel and autos. How would this logic apply to a mortgage banker like UWM Holdings (NYSE: UWMC)? Mortgage banking is a highly cyclical business, but it isn't tied to the economy the way an industrial like Ford Motors or 3M is.

Beating empty black storage trunks, used in concerts and theatres, the workers gathered in Rome's Piazza del Popolo to dramatize their demand for a government fund to help them survive.On Friday (April 16), the government said Italy will ease coronavirus curbs in many areas from April 26 but warned caution was still needed to avoid any reversals in the reopening of many long-shuttered activities.In March, with cases and hospitalizations rising, Italy paused the four-tier, color-coded system it uses to calibrate the restrictions in place in its tweny regions and enforced the tougher red or orange zones nationwide.From April 26, the more lenient yellow and white zones will be reinstated where infection levels are low. In these areas, restaurants and bars will be able to serve clients at outside tables and cinemas and theatres will reopen with attendance limits.Those protesting on Sunday from the group "Bauli in Piazza" (Cases in Square) said reopening did not mean they will get their income back.
Profitable businesses can use their operating cash flow to fund day-to-day activities and projects. A common way young or struggling businesses will raise capital on Wall Street is by selling stock (occasionally with accompanying warrants) or issuing debt that can be converted into common stock at some point in the future. A company that's continually issuing common stock threatens to dilute the value of its existing shareholders.
