Last night marked the start of the second Ramadan, the month of fasting, under lockdown for Muslims across the UK. For many, this Ramadan will be particularly difficult as there will be empty chairs at the dinner table as they end their fasts at sunset. Despite the initial disparities in the take up of the vaccine within ethnic minority communities, vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi, who lost his uncle to coronavirus, has empowered places of worship including mosques, churches, synagogues, temples and gurdwaras to become vaccine hubs.
Boris Johnson has a weakness for boosterish language but, for once, his celebration of “another hugely significant milestone” was justified. The vaccine will now become available to those in their late forties — many of whom have already been given the first jab, thanks to the efficient deployment of unused doses by primary care networks. Last week, a cross-party group of 32 MPs and 33 peers wrote to Mr Johnson seeking better and more regular data on long Covid, after the Office for National Statistics disclosed that at least 1.1 million people were already suffering from the syndrome — many more than expected. In this respect, long Covid has much in common with myalgic encephalomyelitis (chronic fatigue syndrome), which is frequently triggered by viral illness and for which, as yet, no approved treatments have been developed.
Stock futures sank Tuesday morning after U.S. federal health officials called for a pause in the rollout of Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) COVID-19 vaccine amid concerns over rare blood clots in some individuals inoculated with the vaccine.

“Bury the Great Duke with an empire’s lamentation…” The words will have to be changed somewhat but Tennyson’s famous ode on the death of another great personage (the Duke of Wellington) will no doubt be much quoted in coming days. The Duke of Edinburgh could be controversial but, like the Queen, he has been a fixture of many people’s lives from cradle to grave. In a moment in history already characterised by loss and grieving already, the Duke of Edinburgh’s passing has come as very sad news indeed.

"But we can't strip Liberty Steel in this instance now from the wider group under which it sits."

‘Sadly, we will see more hospitalizations and deaths – and people have just got to understand that’
Their share prices have been soaring this year, but investors may want to consider cashing out before it's too late.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. consumer prices climbed in March by more than forecast, adding to evidence of budding inflationary pressures as the economy reopens and demand strengthens.The consumer price index increased 0.6% in March from the prior month after a 0.4% gain in February, according to Labor Department data Tuesday. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists called for a 0.5% advance.Excluding volatile food and energy components, the so-called core CPI increased 0.3% from a month earlier.The monthly advance in the widely followed index led to an outsize 2.6% increase in the overall CPI from March 2020, when the pandemic depressed demand and pricing power. The core measure rose 1.6% from 12 months ago.The year-over-year changes are distorted by a phenomenon known as the base effect. The CPI, like many other economic data points, declined at the start of the pandemic amid lockdowns and widespread business closures. When compared to those depressed figures, the year-over-year increases for March-May will appear abnormally large.While many bond traders have priced in the expected anomalies in the CPI data Tuesday because of base effects, investors have also been on watch for a catalyst to move yields higher. After a spike that last month took the 10-year rate above 1.77%, the benchmark has hovered close to 1.7% in recent sessions.The latest figures on consumer prices add fuel to an already heated debate about the path of inflation in the U.S., especially on the heels of last week’s Labor Department data showing a stronger-than-expected surge in producer prices.Some analysts and economists argue a wave of pent-up demand paired with trillions of dollars in government spending will spur a sustained upward movement in inflation. Meanwhile, Federal Reserve officials, including Chair Jerome Powell, have said any meaningful increase in prices will likely prove temporary.Read More: Bond Market’s Stalled-Out Reflation Trade Needs Actual InflationAmid supply chain bottlenecks, supply shortages and surging input costs, producers are already feeling the pinch of rising costs. While not all cost increases will be pushed through to consumers -- given a variety of different measures firms can take to offset costs -- sustained pressures in the production pipeline raise the risk of an acceleration in consumer inflation.Recent survey data highlighted developing cost pressures. The Institute for Supply Management’s latest figures showed more than half of service providers reported paying higher prices in March, the largest share since 2011. The ISM’s manufacturing survey showed about 72% of manufacturers said the same -- the second-most since 2008.Recently, some company executives have mentioned plans to raise prices for their products.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.

Resonant’s Intellectual Property Portfolio Increases to Over 320 Patents Issued and PendingAUSTIN, Texas., April 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Resonant Inc. (NASDAQ: RESN), a provider of radio frequency (RF) filter solutions developed on a robust intellectual property platform, designed to connect People and Things, has provided a preliminary corporate update for the three months ended March 31, 2021. First Quarter 2021 Company Highlights Resonant’s customers shipped a record 8.6 million radio frequency (RF) filters designed using the Company’s ISN® design technology in the first quarter of 2021, representing an approximate 437% increase from the same year-ago period and a sequential increase of approximately 25%. To-date, Resonant’s customers have shipped over 61 million RF filter units.The Company’s robust patent portfolio grew to over 320 patents filed and issued as of March 31, 2021, greater than 165 of which are related to Resonant’s proprietary XBAR® and high frequency technologies. Patent count at the end of 2020 was over 300 total patents with greater than 150 focused on XBAR.Signed an extension to its licensing agreement with an existing Tier-1 Chinese foundry partner, collecting prepaid royalty revenues for multiple RF filter designs to address the China mobile handset market.Became an official member of the Wi-Fi Alliance, a global non-profit industry association of companies who share a vision of seamless connectivity. Resonant’s proprietary XBAR® technology is ideally suited for high-frequency 5 and 6 GHz Wi-Fi applications, such as Wi-Fi 6E, a rapidly emerging segment of the market.Appointed technical thought leaders Larry Larson, PhD, Jianming Jin, PhD, Gabriel Rebeiz, PhD, and Raafat Mansour, PhD to the Company’s newly formed Technical Committee to its Advisory Board, with the goal of advancing XBAR® adoption and development efforts.Revenues in the first quarter of 2021 were in-line with previously issued guidance. Management Commentary “Resonant’s clients accelerated unit shipment volumes in the first quarter, providing continued validation that the RF filters designed on our ISN® design platform are highly desirable,” said George B. Holmes, Chairman and CEO of Resonant. “This continued traction is a testament to the performance, predictability and time-to-market advantage delivered by our platform, which we believe will result in an increased number of prepaid royalty deals moving forward. This is evidenced by our recent prepaid royalty agreement with our tier-1 Chinese foundry partner. “During the quarter we continued to strengthen our intellectual property portfolio, bringing our total patent count to over 320. We have focused primarily on our XBAR® technology, to strategically position Resonant as a leader in the much-anticipated performance of next-generation networks such as 5G, Wi-Fi and Ultra-wideband (UWB), as well as the unique applications that they enable when used in conjunction with Resonant’s high-performance RF filters.” “Our financial results for the quarter are in line with previously issued guidance. We continue to expect non-linear revenue amounts from quarter to quarter as a result of revenue recognition for our prepaid royalty deals. Looking ahead, we anticipate the ongoing acceleration of unit shipment volumes with our existing customers, as well as additional prepaid royalty agreements. Notably, we are expanding our partner search for non-mobile applications and began sampling XBAR® Wi-Fi devices to non-mobile customers in the first quarter of 2021. We look forward to sharing our full first quarter results with our shareholders in May,” concluded Holmes. About Resonant Inc.

About Resonant’s ISN® Design Technology Resonant can create designs for difficult bands, modules and other complex RF Front End requirements that we believe have the potential to be manufactured for half the cost and developed in half the time of traditional approaches. ISN® is a suite of proprietary mathematical methods, software design tools and network synthesis techniques that enable us to explore a much larger set of possible design solutions that regularly incorporate our proprietary technology. We then quickly deliver design simulations to our customers, which they manufacture or have manufactured by one of our foundry partners. These improved solutions still use Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) or Temperature Compensated Surface Acoustic Wave (TC-SAW) manufacturing methods and perform as well as those using higher cost manufacturing methods such as Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW). Resonant's method delivers excellent predictability, enabling achievement of the desired product performance in roughly half as many turns through the fab. In addition, because Resonant's models are fundamental, integration with its foundry and fab customers is seamless because its models speak the "fab language" of basic material properties and dimensions.
