Romania's Prime Minister Florin Citu sacked his health minister on Wednesday, in a move he said was in response to the country's coronavirus epidemic but which threatens the future of his governing coalition. Citu said Vlad Voiculescu's dismissal would shore up citizens' trust in state institutions. Deputy Prime Minister Dan Barna, who heads the centre-right USR-Plus that Voiculescu is a member of, said Citu had acted without consulting the party and should himself be replaced.
The European countries party to the Iran nuclear deal told Tehran on Wednesday its decision to enrich uranium at 60% purity, bringing the fissile material closer to bomb-grade, was contrary to efforts to revive the 2015 accord. But in an apparent signal to Iran's arch-adversary Israel, which Tehran blamed for an explosion at its key nuclear site on Sunday, European powers Germany, France and Britain added that they rejected "all escalatory measures by any actor". Israel, which the Islamic Republic does not recognise, has not formally commented on the incident at Iran's Natanz site, which appeared the latest twist in a long-running covert war.
The German parliament's budget committee on Wednesday approved a 3 billion euro ($3.59 billion) contract for the development of a European military drone to be built by Airbus, Dassault and Leonardo a parliamentary source said. The new drones are supposed to eventually replace drones from Israel Aerospace Industries which Germany has leased and has been operating in military missions in Afghanistan and Mali. The European drone will be technically capable to carry weapons but any such move would be conditional on the approval of the German parliament which only in December blocked a push to arm the drones currently leased by the German military.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medallion Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: MDL; OTCQB: MLLOF; Frankfurt: MRDN) – “Medallion” or the “Company”), announces completion of a suite of diagnostic test work at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO) in Sydney, to extract rare earth elements (REE) from mineral sand monazite. The monazite was sourced from an Australian mineral sand mine. Discussion is ongoing with additional prospective suppliers. Mineral sand monazite is an abundant REE-rich feedstock, that can be accessed as a by-product from global mineral-sand mines that target zirconium and titanium, without the need for additional mining. Medallion’s business model is centered on the Medallion Monazite Process, a transferable and scalable technology designed to accept multiple mineral-sand monazite feedstocks and extract high-value REEs with high efficiency, high recovery and zero liquid waste. Current and ongoing test work is focused on correlating low cost “diagnostic” mineralogical and chemical data from “run of mine” monazite, sourced from operating mines and prospective producers, with extraction results from the Medallion Monazite Process. This growing data bank will ensure optimal process conditions can be anticipated for all monazite sources and optimal sites identified for a Medallion Monazite Processing hub. The diagnostic test work builds upon research completed by Medallion over the past 5 years in Saskatchewan, Canada. ANSTO’s deep experience in REE-processing and mineral sand monazite makes it an unrivaled research partner for Medallion’s ongoing work. Medallion utilizes Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) as a tool to help reduce the environmental and CO2 impact of REE production wherever possible. Processing mineral-sand monazite close to source presents the most sustainable solution versus long distance transport. As Australia, South East Asia and the Indian Ocean region are the dominant global sources of mineral sand monazite, expanding research networks in this region, with partners like ANSTO, is highly relevant for future business opportunities. “The study we have just completed at ANSTO enables us to be increasingly predictive toward REE- extraction and separation process conditions,” said Mark Saxon, CEO and President. “By acquiring a simple set of data from monazite suppliers, we can be predictive on the process conditions, costs and quantity of market-ready REE products.” Techno-Economic Assessment (TEA) Update Utilizing independent consultants, Medallion is presently finalizing a Techno-Economic Assessment (TEA) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for the Medallion Monazite Process (see press release dated November 10 2020) and January 5 2021. These studies draw together Medallion’s engineering, financial and environmental impact data and will become the foundation of Medallion’s technology execution strategy. Delivery of the TEA has unfortunately been impacted by COVID-19 staffing restrictions within consulting service providers. Results are now anticipated by mid-May 2021. Mark Saxon further commented, “while reporting delays are never ideal, we acknowledge the current challenges and restrictions faced by consultants and researchers in the execution of their business. The financial and LCA model is a far-reaching study that will allow us to compare and prioritize operating locations and feedstocks to ensure the most profitable and lowest-environmental impact decisions are made.” About Medallion Resources Medallion Resources has developed a proprietary process and related business model to achieve low-cost, near-term, rare-earth element (REE) production by exploiting monazite. Monazite is a rare-earth phosphate mineral that is widely available as a by-product from mineral sand mining operations. Furthermore, Medallion has recently licensed an innovative REE separation technology from Purdue University which can be utilized by Medallion and sub-licensed by Medallion to third-party REE producers. REEs are critical inputs to electric and hybrid vehicles, electronics, imaging systems, wind turbines and strategic defense systems. Medallion is committed to following best practices and accepted international standards in all aspects of mineral transportation, processing and the safe management of waste materials. Medallion utilizes Life Cycle Assessment methodology to support investment and process decision making.

France will use Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine as planned despite its suspension in the United States, a government spokesman said on Wednesday, adding France had received a first shipment of 200,000 doses. "The doses, which arrived earlier this week, are being shipped to city general practitioners and to chemists," government spokesman Gabriel Attal told reporters. France expects to receive 600,000 doses of the J&J vaccine by the end of the month, according to health ministry data.
(Bloomberg) -- JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s dealmakers just helped usher in the firm’s best quarter on record, but shares fell as the bank warned that loan demand remains tepid.Investment-banking fees soared 57%, beating analysts’ estimates and boosting net income to $14.3 billion, the most JPMorgan has ever earned in a single quarter, according to a statement Wednesday. A larger-than-expected reserve release added to the windfall as the bank determined it didn’t need as much socked away for future loan losses.Government stimulus programs and potentially massive infrastructure spending mean “the economy has the potential to have extremely robust, multiyear growth,” Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon said in the statement.Dimon said loan demand is still “challenged” but, on a subsequent conference call with journalists, he said he “made a mistake” in using that word. “What’s happened is the consumer has so much money they’re paying down their credit-card loans, which is good,” he said. “This is not bad news about loan demand, this is actually good news.”The CEO said last week in his annual letter to shareholders that he’s optimistic the pandemic will end with a U.S. economic rebound that could last at least two years. He pointed to an “extraordinary” amount of spending power from both consumers and corporations as the country opens back up.Still, investors are keen for signs that banks will soon expand their loan portfolios. Across the industry, credit-card balances have been dwindling and deposits soaring as a result of trillions of dollars of stimulus. Businesses have also been reluctant to borrow until the pace of the economic recovery becomes clearer.JPMorgan expects a pickup in consumer and small-business loan demand in the second half, Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Piepszak said on a conference call with analysts. Commercial-loan demand is muted and “probably will be for some time,” she said. “But, again, that’s incredibly healthy ultimately for the recovery.”At JPMorgan, loans fell 4% from a year earlier, driven by a 14% drop in card loans. Shares of the company slipped 0.7% to $153.04 at 10:06 a.m. in New York.Investment BankingInvestment-banking fees jumped to $2.99 billion, topping the $2.59 billion analysts were expecting. The bank posted a $5.2 billion reserve release, a metric Dimon said he doesn’t consider “core or recurring profits.” Piepszak said the bank expects more reserve releases because the forecast is for a robust economic recovery in the second half.Equity underwriting more than tripled to $1.06 billion, beating expectations as JPMorgan rode the wave in activity driven in part by a slew of special purpose acquisition companies that went public in the first quarter. The New York-based bank ranked 10th by volume in SPAC underwriting for the period, and fifth for global equity underwriting overall. Analysts had predicted the trend would boost revenue 176% in the first quarter for the five biggest U.S. banks.The bank’s traders generated $9.05 billion of revenue in the first quarter, up 25% from a year earlier and exceeding analysts’ expectations. That included a 47% increase in equities and a 15% jump in fixed income. Trading revenue remained elevated after a banner year as the coronavirus pandemic roiled markets and sent volatility soaring.The firm increased its full-year 2021 adjusted expense outlook to $70 billion, from $69 billion expected in February. Non-interest expenses were $18.7 billion in the first quarter, up 12% from a year earlier.Dimon and Piepszak again discussed JPMorgan’s appetite for acquisitions, a point that was punctuated last week when Dimon wrote in his letter that “acquisitions are in our future.” The CEO echoed previous comments that he prefers to use JPMorgan’s extra cash to invest in the business, rather than on share repurchases.“We’re buying back stock because our cup runneth over,” Dimon said. “We’re earning a tremendous sum of money and we really have no option right now. But I think the door’s open to anything that makes sense.”Also in JPMorgan’s first-quarter earnings:Net interest income was $12.9 billion, down 11% from a year earlier. The firm’s outlook for 2021 NII is about $55 billion.Total revenue was $32.3 billion in the first quarter, up 14% from a year earlier.The overhead ratio, a measure of profitability, was 58% in the quarter, up from 55% in the fourth quarter.(Updates with CEO, CFO comments starting in fourth paragraph.)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.

Communist-run Cuba announced that it was loosening a decades-old ban on the sale of beef and dairy products except to the state and allowing the killing of one’s own cow for personal consumption or sale after meeting state quotas. Ranchers will be allowed to do as they wish with their livestock “after meeting state quotas and always with a guarantee it will not result in a reduction of the herd,” the Communist Party daily, Granma, said late on Tuesday. In 1963 the Cuban government made it illegal for Cubans to slaughter their cows or sell beef and byproducts without state permission after Hurricane Flora killed 20% of the country's herd.

Elderly people receiving a single dose of either vaccine showed equivalent antibody responses after five weeks.It’s unclear if the different levels of T cell responses observed will have any impact on clinical effectiveness, the researchers said.NYC Reschedules 4,000 Appointments (9:29 a.m. NY)New York City had to reschedule 4,000 shots on Tuesday due to the Johnson & Johnson pause, according to Health Commissioner Dave Chokshi. The “vast majority” of New Yorkers will keep the same appointments but receive the Pfizer or Moderna shots instead.The city’s homebound senior vaccine program, which depended on the J&J shot, will be suspended through Sunday, but the city is working to reschedule appointments and arrange transports by taxi or ambulette, Chokshi said.Denmark Is First in EU to Drop Astra Shot (8:14 a.m. NY)Denmark has become the first country in the European Union to drop AstraZeneca Plc’s vaccine from its inoculation program amid concerns over blood clots.Denmark was one of the first countries to suspend the vaccine, on March 11. At the time, the Danish Health Authority called the decision a precautionary move and reiterated its view that Astra’s vaccine was “effective and safe.”Pfizer to Speed EU Deliveries (7:42 a.m. NY)Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE will raise Covid-19 vaccine deliveries to the European Union by 50 million this quarter, offering good news to the bloc after Johnson & Johnson’s shot was paused.The drugmakers will bring forward deliveries scheduled for the fourth quarter, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Wednesday. The additional supplies will add to the 200 million doses the EU was already expecting from Pfizer through June. The company provided about 66 million in the first three months of the year.EU Vaccine Passports Draw Closer (7:30 a.m. NY)European Union governments reached a deal on technical standards for so-called vaccine passports, advancing the effort to boost travel to and within the bloc in time for the summer season.Envoys meeting in Brussels unanimously supported a draft legal text setting out specifics for “digital green certificates,” according to a diplomat familiar with the private meeting.

Herndon, VA, April 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Sysorex (OTCQB: SYSX) today announced the closing of a reverse triangular merger with TTM Digital Assets & Technologies, Inc., a data center owner and operator and now, the largest U.S. publicly traded Ethereum mining company based in the United States with operations in New York and North Carolina. As a result of the transaction, TTM’s business and operations will become the core business of Sysorex as the first Ethereum company trading in the U.S. public markets. Sysorex will continue to operate its legacy business providing a comprehensive suite of network performance, secure wireless access and cybersecurity products to the U.S. Government through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sysorex Government Services, Inc. TTM, a pioneer in the Ethereum mining sector, operating since 2017, has been profitable since inception. Prior to the Merger, TTM mined and distributed Ethereum to management and its investors that if held by those investors would be valued at approximately $35,000,000 at today’s Ether (ETH) price of approximately $2,325. TTM owns and operates more than 12,000 NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs), including a large number of specialized Cryptocurrency Mining Processors. These GPUs are currently online and securing the Ethereum blockchain and generating ETH around the clock with industry leading efficiency. By the Merger, the shareholders of TTM exchanged 100% of TTM’s share capital for Sysorex’s agreement to issue 124,218,268 shares of Sysorex common stock to the TTM shareholders, which will represent 80% of the total share capital of Sysorex. As a closing condition to the Merger, a significant portion of the Company’s existing debtholders, creditors and service providers agreed to convert or exchange their outstanding indebtedness or accounts payable, as applicable, eliminating at least $13,500,000 of Sysorex debt, substantially improving Sysorex’s balance sheet and significantly increasing Sysorex shareholders’ equity. Wayne Wasserberg, an executive with more than 15 years of experience working with clients internationally across industries including Forex trading, alternative assets, infrastructure and real estate development has been elected CEO of TTM, replacing Zaman Khan who will remain on the Board and will continue as the President of SGS. Commenting on the transaction, Mr. Wasserberg stated, “TTM’s management team draws experience from multiple industries including crypto-centric development stage businesses, engineering and capital markets who recognized the power and flexibility of the Ethereum blockchain soon after its introduction. The team smartly invested in data center infrastructure shortly after formation and from the outset recognized the importance of owning and operating its cryptocurrency mining infrastructure.” Mr. Wasserberg continued, “The historical strategy was to operate TTM similar to an investment fund distributing mined ETH to its investors. Given the expanded opportunity set presented by Ethereum today including non-fungible tokens (NFTs), development of apps and peer-to-peer financial transactions, and the expectation that future upgrades to the Ethereum network will make Ethereum more scalable, and to further enhance security to support 1,000s of transactions per second, TTM has shifted its strategy to amassing Ethereum in our corporate treasury, providing public shareholders exposure to this asset class as we also expand our platform to unlock value for our new shareholders based on the latest opportunities provided by Ethereum as we position for the exciting future of Ethereum and our business. “Given our strong position within the cryptocurrency industry and deep relationships with the leading manufactures of GPUs and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), we can expand to the mining of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the future. However, our current mindset is that Ethereum holds several advantages over Bitcoin. Unlike Bitcoin, which as it has matured, has maintained a conservative stance on technological progress and blockchain usage, Ethereum has embraced progress in on-chain usage allowing for the creation of decentralized applications (dApps) and explosive growth in decentralized finance (DeFi) as programmable money. Given this divergence of approach, we were not surprised last month to see Visa become the first major legacy transaction service provider to settle transactions on top of the Ethereum blockchain. “We believe the Merger with Sysorex provides our combined company with certain strategic opportunities that we have identified given Sysorex’s relationship with the U.S. Government and the recently announced $2 trillion-plus infrastructure plan and we look forward to exploring new business with SGS. We also see large opportunities around Ethereum’s flexible network that allows users to build and launch NFTs on top of the framework, which can also be stored on the network, and we are interested in exploring optimization of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning and quick image rending in partnership with our significant stakeholder, CoreWeave, Inc.” The Merger was structured as and is intended to constitute a tax-free exchange pursuant to Section 368(a)(1)(A) and Section 368(a)(2)(E) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. For additional details on the Merger, please reference our current report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Please visit our TTM Website for more information.
