Two battleground states, Wisconsin and Arizona, certified their presidential election results in favour of Joe Biden, even as President Donald Trump's legal team continued to dispute the results. Biden’s victory in Wisconsin was certified Monday following a partial recount that only added to his 20,600-vote margin over Trump, who has promised to file a lawsuit seeking to undo the results. Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, signed a certificate that completed the process after the canvass report showing Biden as the winner following the recount was approved by the chairwoman of the bipartisan Wisconsin Elections Commission. Evers’ signature was required by law and is typically a procedural step that receives little attention. “Today I carried out my duty to certify the November 3rd election,” Evers said in a statement. “I want to thank our clerks, election administrators, and poll workers across our state for working tirelessly to ensure we had a safe, fair, and efficient election. Thank you for all your good work.” The action Monday now starts a five-day deadline for Trump to file a lawsuit, which he promised would come no later than Tuesday. Trump is mounting a longshot attempt to overturn the results by disqualifying as many as 238,000 ballots. Trump’s attorneys have alleged without evidence that there was widespread fraud and illegal activity. Biden’s campaign has said the recount showed that Biden won Wisconsin decisively and there was no fraud. Even if Trump were successful in Wisconsin, the state’s 10 Electoral College votes would not be enough to undo Biden’s overall victory as states around the country certify results. Earlier Monday, Arizona officials certified Biden’s narrow victory in that state. Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and Republican Gov. Doug Ducey both vouched for the integrity of the election before signing off on the results. “We do elections well here in Arizona. The system is strong,” Ducey said. He did not directly address Trump’s claims of irregularities but said the state pulled off a successful election with a mix of in-person and mail voting despite the pandemic. Hobbs said Arizona voters should know that the election “was conducted with transparency, accuracy and fairness in accordance with Arizona’s laws and election procedures, despite numerous unfounded claims to the contrary.” Biden is only the second Democrat in 70 years to win Arizona. In the final tally, he beat Trump by 10,457 votes, or 0.3% of the nearly 3.4 million ballots cast. Even as Hobbs, Ducey, the state attorney general and chief justice of the state Supreme Court certified the election results, Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis met in a Phoenix hotel ballroom a few miles away to lay out claims of irregularities in the vote count in Arizona and elsewhere. But they did not provide evidence of widespread fraud. “The officials certifying have made no effort to find out the truth, which to me, gives the state Legislature the perfect reason to take over the conduct of this election because it’s being conducted irresponsibly and unfairly,” Giuliani said. Nine Republican state lawmakers attended the meeting. They had requested permission to hold a formal legislative hearing at the Capitol but were denied by the Republican House speaker and Senate president. Trump berated Ducey on Twitter Monday night, asking, “Why is he rushing to put a Democrat in office, especially when so many horrible things concerning voter fraud are being revealed at the hearing going on right now.” Elections challenges brought by the Trump campaign or his backers in key battleground states have largely been unsuccessful as Trump continues to allege voter fraud while refusing to concede. There is no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election. In fact, election officials from both political parties have stated publicly that the election went well and international observers confirmed there were no serious irregularities. ___ Bauer reported from Madison, Wis.; Cooper and Tang reported from Phoenix.

* Step-out drilling successfully extends Target C a further 75 metres to the east and 75 metres to depth; * LP20-170 (Target C) intersected 13.0 meters averaging 5.17 g/t Au, 4.2 g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu and 1.67% Zn and a deeper intercept of 5.0 meters averaging 7.44 g/t Au, 10.0 g/t Ag, 0.47% Cu and 0.0% Zn; * LP20-172 intersected 3.0 meters averaging 3.98 g/t Au, 2.2 g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu and 1.85% Zn and a deeper intercept of 4.0m averaging 7.18 g/t Au, 8.6 g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu and 0.0% Zn; * Drilling between Target A and Target B shows continuity of mineralization across the 150 metre gap; * LP153A (Target B) intersected 18.0 meters averaging 0.67 g/t Au with 0.27% Cu in a massive to semi-massive sulphide interval at depth; * All drilling enhances the lower grade resource with long intersections between 60 and 175 meters of continuous mineralization; * 22 exploration drill holes have been completed to date, with 12 awaiting results. TORONTO, Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Unigold Inc. (“Unigold” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:UGD; OTCQX: UGDIF; FSE: UGD1) is pleased to announce results from its ongoing exploration drilling at the Candelones Extension deposit, part of the Company’s 100% owned Neita Concession in the Dominican Republic.The Company has completed 31 drill holes (9,470 m) of the planned 15,000 meter program including 9 metallurgical holes (243 meters) at the Candelones Main and Connector zone targeting oxide and transition mineralization for additional test work. Drilling at Target C has been temporarily halted pending receipt of assay results but is expected to resume after the metallurgical holes are completed Drilling at Target B continues to test the 150 meter gap between Targets A and B at depth.Joe Hamilton, Chairman and CEO of Unigold notes: “These latest results expand the mineralization at Target C a full 75 meters east of the high grade core and once again have intersected two horizons. The most recent fence of holes intersected two sub-vertical zones of higher-grade mineralization. The confirmation of a second zone at Target C enhances to exploration potential at this high-grade target.”“Elsewhere, our exploration drilling at the gap between Targets A and B has once again hit an interval of massive to semi-massive sulphide mineralization. The horizon in LP20-153A has similar grades but is much deeper than the previous intercept in this area. The massive sulphide lens in this area remains open at depth and the geometry suggests that the mineralization either dips steeply to the north or has been fault offset to the north.”“The slow return of analytical results has created a bottleneck that is affecting the positioning of our drillholes. We have re-tasked one of our drills to collect bulk sample material from the oxide and transition mineralization to complete final metallurgical testing while we await analytical results. These short drillholes should be completed quickly and then allow the drill to return to exploration work.”“We remain encouraged by both the wide intercepts of mineralization that is within 200 metres of surface, and the higher grade material that is demonstrating continuity across good strike lengths. The combination of these two types of mineralisation lends flexibility to the planning process as we move towards economic studies at Candelones.”Holes LP20-170. 172 and 174 (Ref. Figures 1 and 2) were drilled as an infill section 75 meters east of the high grade mineralization intersected in holes LP20-146, 148, 150 and 160 (Ref. Figure 2.0). LP20-170 intersected two narrow, high grade intervals. The upper zone intersected 13.0 meters averaging 5.17 g/t Au, 4.2 g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu and 1.67% Zn. The lower zone returned 5.0 meters averaging 7.44 g/t Au, 10.0 g/t Ag, 0.47% Cu and 0.0% Zn.LP20-172, drilled 30m below LP20-170, also intersected two high grade zones. The first returned 3.0m averaging 3.98 g/t Au, 2.2 g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu and 1.85% Zn. The lower interval returned 4.0m averaging 7.18 g/t Au, 8.6 g/t Ag, 0.4% Cu and 0.0% Zn.LP20-174, the third hole completed on this infill section, was drilled 100m north of LP20-170. This hole targeted the high grade mineralization reported in hole LP43, 75m to the east, which returned 4.0 meters averaging 9.0 g/t Au, 1.4 g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu and 0.4% Zn.LP20-153A (Ref. Figure 1 and 3) was drilled to test the 100 meter wide gap between Targets A and B. This hole was targeted 25 meters below the massive sulphide intersected in LP20-151 (Ref. Figure 1.0). LP20-151 intersected 113.0 meters averaging 0.89 g/t Au, 1.6 g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu and 0.2% Zn including 8.0 meters averaging 4.27 g/t Au, 1.3 g/t Ag, 0.1% Cu and 0.6% Zn. The massive sulphide zone returned 19.0m averaging 0.92 g/t Au and 0.2% Cu. The massive sulphide zone in LP20-153A returned 18.0 meters averaging 0.67 g/t Au, with 0.27% Cu. (Ref. Table 1.0). As with the massive sulphides at Target A, this new zone of sulphide mineralization is depleted in zinc with elevated copper grades, similar to the Target A mineralization. LP13, approximately 200 meters above LP20-151, intersected 2.0 meters averaging 9.00 g/t Au in the hanging wall andesites. It is possible this intercept may represent an alternate trend to the massive sulphide mineralization in hole LP20-153A, more consistent with the sub-vertical continuity observed at Target B. Follow up holes are planned to evaluate this trend. Further drillholes will test this trend in the future.Table 1.0 – Significant Results LP20-168, 170, 172, 174 and 153ATargetHole ()From(m)To (m)Interval (m)Au (g/t)Ag (g/t)Cu (%)Zn (%) CLP20-168 132.00193.0061.000.793.070.080.39 including145.00159.0014.001.213.300.190.51 and167.00183.0016.000.911.100.030.40 LP20-170 227.00345.00118.001.651.990.070.48 including229.00242.0013.005.174.220.131.67 and313.00318.005.007.4410.000.470.00 LP20-172 282.00386.00104.001.151.700.050.35 including321.00324.003.003.98188.8.131.52 and370.00374.004.007.188.580.400.01 LP20-174 116.00227.00111.000.700.780.080.26 including117.00149.0032.001.001.330.100.44 and158.00191.0033.001.150.890.160.44 BLP20-153A 320.00495.00175.000.320.720.060.33 including320.00338.0018.000.940.610.092.27 and468.00486.0018.000.672.630.300.00 (1) Interval represents drilled length in meters and not true width.

Dublin, Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Digital Logistics Market - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The digital logistics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% owing to the increasing adoption of advanced technologies as a constant effort to reducing allied costs during the forecast period of 2020 - 2025. Digital logistics ensures end-to-end visibility across multiple functions, such as inventory, orders, and shipments. Such visibility leads to a reduction in network-wide inventory levels by increasing response time dynamically, towards logistical events. The digitizing trend has paved the way for the new supply chain-grade logistics applications. It was developed as integration for core warehouse and transportation management systems to enable efficient process models. Key Market Trends Trucking-as-a-service to Drive the Market Growth The reliance on truck OEMs on loT-based gadgets has fueled the management of trucking operations such as optimal asset utilization, public transit management, fleet management, and smart inventory management, to name a few. This has also led to a considerable shift in the vehicle acquisition and service model, globally. * TaaS has been leading the supply chain operators to access trucks on-demand, wherein the truck will need significant telematics and support services to ensure tracking, mapping, management, and optimization of routes. This led to the emergence of multiple new formats for the stakeholders to capitalize on. * Trucking OEMs such as Volvo and Daimler have been keen on offering subscription-based models to haulage operations by leveraging digital services. LoadSmart has customized launch of a digital platform for contracted freight carriers to match Daimler's spot loads. This looks at a take on developing the digital freight brokerage services as a TaaS model by Daimler. * As of October 2019, Volkswagen AG announced transitioning from a hardware supplier to being a provider of software and services. Also, by the end of 2024, over EUR 1 billion in R&D expenditure is expected to be incurred. Digitalization and connected vehicles also would enable the TRATON Group brands' service business to launch offerings and business models for the company's vehicles. * Also, back in April 2019, Amazon, an e-commerce operator, has been capitalizing on newly developed digital freight brokerage websites to offer third party logistic and freight delivery at less than 30% of the market rate.Latin America is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share Latin America is one of the leading digital logistics markets, mainly due to the growing regional e-commerce sector and rising adoption of digital services among the regional transportation and logistics industry. * Brazil recorded one of the highest logistics expenses in the world. Approximately 30% of the distribution cost structure represents the total logistics costs. The growing e-commerce industry is driving the demand for advanced and time-efficient logistic services. In 2017, the sales of e-commerce accounted for 5% (USD 300 billion) of the Brazilian retail market share. However, this proportion is increasing rapidly due to growing digital penetration. * In 2018, Amazon acquired a 50,000-square-meter warehouse for lease in Brazil, as the company is planning to expand its presence in the region. Though the country's logistics market faces many problems, with the increasing need for cost-effective methods, digital logistic solutions can be expected to witness demand from this sector. * In Argentina, with growing cloud adoption, the country's trucking market is providing growth avenues for digital logistic vendors, as digital services are helping regional logistics companies in gaining competitive advantage. The country's truck industry is worth USD 120 billion. Furthermore, with trucks that make over 150 million trips annually, the industry has a vast scope for digital logistics solutions.Competitive Landscape The Digital Logistics Market is fragmented due to several prominent players that cater to various types of organizations such as SMEs to Large Enterprises. Players in the market realize the importance of digital improvements and are continuously engaging in partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, and new product offerings. Some of the recent developments in the market are: In July 2020 - Coyote Logistics expanded its Dynamic Route Optimization program in the wake of streamlining logistic operations.

Indonesia may still pursue a plan to tax technology companies on the income they generate from the country even if G20 nations and the OECD cannot reach a deal on digital taxes, its finance minister said on Tuesday. Talks to rewrite rules for cross-border taxation, including digital taxes, led by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, stalled this year, with a new deadline for an agreement extended to 2021. Indonesia, Southeast Asia's biggest economy, has begun collecting a 10% value-added tax (VAT) since mid-2020 on digital products and services from internet-based firms, but officials had previously said it would charge a tax on income only after a global consensus was reached.
BAKU, Azerbaijan — Azerbaijan on Tuesday completed reclaiming territory ceded by Armenia under a Russia-brokered peace deal that ended six weeks of fierce fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev hailed the restoration of control over the areas as a historic achievement. “We all lived with one dream and now we fulfilled it," Aliyev said in an address to the nation. “We won a victory on the battlefield and on the political arena, and that victory opens a new era for our country. It will be an era of development, security and progress." Nagorno-Karabakh lies within Azerbaijan but has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since a separatist war there ended in 1994. That war left not only Nagorno-Karabakh itself but large chunks of surrounding lands in Armenian hands. In 44 days of heavy fighting that began on Sept. 27, the Azerbaijani military routed Armenian forces and wedged deep into Nagorno-Karabakh, forcing Armenia to accept a Russia-brokered peace deal that took effect Nov. 10. The agreement saw the return of a significant part of Nagorno-Karabakh under Azerbaijan's control and also requested Armenia to hand over all of the regions it held outside the separatist region. The Lachin region, which lies between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia, was the last of the three areas on the rim of Nagorno-Karabakh to be surrendered by Armenian forces on Tuesday. Russia deployed nearly 2,000 peacekeepers for at least five years to monitor the peace deal and help the return of refugees. The Russian troops will also ensure safe transit between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia across the Lachin region. Turkey, which has strongly backed its ally Azerbaijan, has extended its clout in the region. On Tuesday, Russian and Turkish military officials signed documents to set up a joint monitoring centre to ensure the fulfilment of the peace deal. The peace agreement was celebrated as a victory in Azerbaijan, but sparked mass protests in Armenia, with thousands taking to the streets to demand the ouster of the country’s prime minister.

A Monday night explosion at American Iron and Metal of Saint John forced the metal recycler to temporarily shut down, says Saint John Mayor Don Darling, who wants the province to do something about AIM's disruptions to the quality of life on the west side."The city should never be in this situation again," Darling said during an interview Tuesday with Information Morning Saint John.Darling said the Department of Environment temporarily closed the plant on the Saint John waterfront because the noise exceeded the targeted 104-decibel limit.This was the second explosion AIM in less than a week.On Thursday, a fire caused explosions that also exceeded the decibel limit, rattled windows and shook homes.Environment Minister Gary Crossman said he's concerned about the repeated explosions at the AIM yard."The Department of Environment and Climate Change is closely monitoring compliance with the approval to operate," he said in a statement Monday.He said an inspector was on site Monday and will be there again Tuesday.Crossman said government officials have had a number of conversations with Darling about the AIM site."If the department identifies that standards within the approval to operate are not being followed, I can and will exercise the appropriate authoritative measures."City expresses frustrationDarling doesn't believe the approval should be renewed if problems persist."Until these items and issues are resolved in a balanced and satisfactory way ... I don't think they should get a new approval to operate," he told council Monday night.Darling read a letter he's sending to the province, expressing frustration and concern."This is a great example of the need to think long term," he said.Darling asked provincial and federal governments to step in."Of particular concern is the severity and frequency of recent explosion events," the letter said.Blasts at the plant have disturbed residents for years, causing the province to issue multiple stop-work ordersDarling said it's not acceptable to normalize explosions close to residential areas. He said the "balance" between industry and community doesn't exist with AIM."Saint Johners deserve better," he said.The recycling facility is on federal land leased by Port Saint John, and the license to operate is given by the province, Darling said.And when Darling receives multiple calls from residents after a blast, there's not much he can do except raise the alarm."I think that that should never be the case again in the future," he said. "I get hundreds of messages from citizens about … this facility, but I don't have any authority."'Disregard for authority'At the meeting Coun. David Hickey, John MacKenzie and Donna Reardon spoke in support of the letter being sent to other levels of government."We can't sit by and allow this kind of attitude and this kind of complete disregard for the authority of this council of our provincial government and of our federal government," Hickey said. "I'm tired of having to come back to the same conversation about people breaking the rules and then in turn, not having the provincial authorities and the federal authorities be able to have our backs."MacKenzie said even if the province successfully regulates how many decibels the explosions register, the harbour front is still not the right place for the facility."It's just misplaced," he said.AIM did not respond to a request for comment. The company has previously said the explosions are caused by propane and gasoline tanks in crushed vehicles going through the shredder.
