"We have now passed another hugely significant milestone in our vaccine programme by offering jabs to everyone in the nine highest risk groups," Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a statement.

MADRID — Sevilla defeated Celta Vigo 4-3 in a back-and-forth match in the Spanish league on Monday, strengthening its hold on fourth place and moving within range of leader Atlético Madrid. The away victory gave Sevilla a 14-point gap over both fifth-place Real Sociedad and sixth-place Real Betis, practically securing the team the final qualification spot for the Champions League with nine rounds remaining. The win also put Sevilla six points points from Atlético, which has stumbled at the top recently. Julen Lopetegui's team is four points behind third-place Barcelona and five from second-place Real Madrid. Madrid defeated Barcelona 2-1 on Saturday, while Atlético drew 1-1 at Betis on Sunday for its second consecutive setback. Sevilla was coming off a 1-0 home win against Atlético. Next Sunday it visits Sociedad. Celta, which was seeking its second win in a row in the league, stayed in 10th place. Sevilla opened the scoring with a goal by Jules Koundé less than 10 minutes into the match, but the hosts went ahead with a pair of goals by striker Iago Aspas in the 20th and 23rd minutes. Fernando equalized for Sevilla in the 35th and Brais Méndez put Celta ahead again near halftime. The visitors rallied in the second half with a goal by Ivan Rakitic in the 60th and another by Papu Gómez in the 76th. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
Microsoft, on an accelerated growth push, is buying speech recognition company Nuance in a deal worth about $16 billion. The acquisition will get Microsoft deeper into hospitals and the health care industry through Nuance's widely used medical dictation and transcription tools. Microsoft will pay $56 per share cash. That's a 23% premium to Nuance's Friday closing price. The companies value the transaction including debt at $19.7 billion. Shares of Burlington, Massachusetts-based Nuance surged about 16% in Monday trading. Nuance has been a pioneer in voice-based artificial intelligence technology and was instrumental in helping to power Apple's digital assistant Siri. It has since shifted its focus to health care, including a product that listens in on exam room conversations between physicians and patients and automatically writes up the doctor's recommendations. “This clinical documentation essentially writes itself, giving physicians time back to focus on patient care,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said on a conference call about the deal Monday. Microsoft and Nuance had already formed a business partnership in 2019. That relationship grew during the pandemic, enabling Nuance to bring its patient-physician transcription services into telehealth appointments on Microsoft Teams. The Redmond, Washington, software giant said that this month's deal will double its potential market in the health care provider industry to nearly $500 billion. “Put Microsoft and Nuance together and it allows Microsoft to go after the exploding health care market, which is on fire right now as it’s modernizing, adopting digital engagement and moving to the cloud,” said Forrester analyst Kate Leggett. Nuance’s products include clinical speech recognition software offerings such as Dragon Ambient eXperience, Dragon Medical One and PowerScribe, all of which are built on Microsoft's Azure cloud platform. The companies said Nuance products are used by more than 55% of physicians and 75% of radiologists in the U.S., and by 77% of U.S. hospitals. Revenue from its health care cloud business grew 37% year-over-year in fiscal 2020. “AI is technology’s most important priority, and health care is its most urgent application,” Nadella said. Microsoft also has its own digital voice assistant, Cortana, but its use has been limited compared to similar consumer-oriented features from Amazon, Google and Apple. Nuance has sought to refine its voice recognition technology beyond consumer use to better understand the complexities of medical language. Aside from health care, Nuance provides voice-related AI technology in other products, including security features that can recognize and authenticate individual voices so they can unlock an online account. Nuance also sells automated call-centre and customer-service chatbot services to retailers, telecommunications firms and other sectors. Scott Guthrie, who leads Microsoft's cloud and AI division, said Monday that Nuance's medical industry expertise could eventually expand to other uses, such as interpreting conversations between financial advisers and their clients. The transaction is Microsoft’s second largest deal following its $26 billion purchase of LinkedIn in 2016. Last September, it bought video game maker ZeniMax for $7.5 billion. Leggett said the Nuance deal fits a push by cloud computing providers like Microsoft to supply “industry-specific AI,” or technology that's tailored to the special needs of the health industry and other sectors. Mark Benjamin will continue as Nuance CEO. The transaction is expected to close this year. It still needs approval from Nuance shareholders. Nuance had 7,100 employees as of September, more than half of whom were outside the U.S. — including crews that help transcribe and edit recorded speech that the AI technology might not fully understand.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Texas Rangers right-hander Jonathan Hernandez had ligament reconstruction surgery on his right elbow Monday, just less than two weeks after fellow reliever José Leclerc had the same procedure, and their bullpen will also be without hard-throwing Matt Bush until at least July. Rangers president of baseball operations Jon Daniels said the Tommy John surgery on Hernandez was performed by team physician Dr. Keith Meister and went as expected. Both Hernandez and Leclerc will be sidelined until at least early in the 2022 season. Meister did Leclerc's surgery on March 31. Bush has a flexor strain in his right arm and will get an injection Tuesday, then wait six weeks before a follow-up MRI to determine if the right-hander is ready to start throwing again. Daniels said Bush would then need about six weeks — or about the same length of time he is unable to throw — before being able to pitch again in a game. After missing 2 1/2 seasons because of a pair of elbow operations, Bush was put on the 10-day injured list Friday with elbow inflammation after three appearances. The 24-year-old Hernandez had a breakout 2020, when he was 5-1 with a 2.90 ERA in 27 appearances in the pandemic-shortened 60-game season. He had 31 strikeouts and eight walks in 31 innings, relying heavily on a sinker that averaged nearly 98 mph. He was shut down midway through spring training with what the team called a ligament sprain, and he decided to have the Tommy John surgery after a follow-up MRI last week. “(The MRI) showed some measure of healing. But he was he was still feeling some discomfort in the joint, which after four weeks, medical staff felt like if it was likely to heal non-surgically, then he wouldn’t have felt discomfort at that point,” Daniels said. “Ultimately Jonathan’s call. The decision was made rather than to invest more time in the rehab side, since he was still having symptoms, to go ahead and have the surgery.” Daniels also provided a series of other injury updates before Texas opened a four-game series at defending American League champion Tampa Bay: — Right-handed reliever Joely Rodriguez, slowed in spring training because of a left ankle injury during the off-season, is at the team's alternate site in Round Rock, Texas, and will start throwing in games this week. — Third baseman Brock Holt resumed baseball activity Monday, six days after straining his right hamstring in a game. Daniels said the team is optimistic that Holt will be ready when eligible to come off the injured list on Saturday. — Outfielder-designated hitter Willie Calhoun (left groin strain) had been in games at their spring training site in Arizona, but now has gone to Round Rock, where he will start playing games this week after completing COVID-19 intake testing. “He’s continuing the baseball side of it," Daniels said. “He’s healthy at this point." — Outfielder-designated hitter Khris Davis (left quad strain) is still about two weeks before being a full-go medically and able to compete in games to prepare for his Rangers debut. — Left fielder David Dahl was back in the lineup for the series opener at Tampa Bay, as the designated hitter, after missing the finale of the Padres series with calf tightness. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
Streetscape improvements to Halifax's busy Spring Garden Road shopping district could be significantly more costly than anticipated. All three bids for the work, submitted at the end of March, are over the budget of $10.4 million. Brycon Construction came in with the lowest bid at $11.2 million. Dexter Construction and Ocean Contractors put forward bids of $12.1 million and $13.1 million, respectively. Coun. Waye Mason, who represents Halifax South Downtown, said the over-budget bids are "unfortunate, but not entirely unexpected in COVID times." Upgrades to Spring Garden Road have been talked about since 2009. The work includes making it safer for pedestrians to cross the street, creating more green spaces and adding amenities at bus stops. Sue Uteck, the executive director of the Spring Garden Road Business Association, said she hopes council will find the money to ensure the project is not delayed. Business owners are gearing up for disruptions to begin this May and a marketing campaign is planned. "Spring Garden Road pays millions of dollars in taxes every year, and its day for revitalization is long overdue. Let's get it done," said Uteck. Coun. Waye Mason is hopeful that upgrades to Spring Garden Road will go ahead soon, even with bids coming in over budget.(Paul Palmeter/CBC) A municipal spokesperson told CBC News in an email that staff are reviewing the bids, and it will be up to council to decide if extra funds are needed for the project. Mason pointed out that Halifax has received extra gas tax money, as well as COVID relief funds. "Now really is the time to do this work, not once economic recovery has really started next summer," said Mason. "I hope we'll go ahead with it. I think we will." MORE TOP STORIES
