Scott Parker says his Fulham side must continue to live “on the edge” if they are to stave off relegation - even if it cost them dear in Saturday’s west London derby against Chelsea. The Cottagers were reduced to ten men on the stroke of half-time when Antonee Robinson was sent off for a reckless challenge on Blues defender Cesar Azpilicueta. Parker hailed a “heroic” defensive display which saw the hosts hold out for 78 minutes before Mason Mount earned Frank Lampard’s side a 1-0 win.

RADNOR, Pa., Jan. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP reminds Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLK) (“Splunk”) investors that a securities fraud class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Splunk on behalf of those who purchased or otherwise acquired Splunk common stock between October 21, 2020 and December 2, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Reminder: Investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Splunk common stock during the Class Period may, no later than February 2, 2021, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class. For additional information or to learn how to participate in this litigation please contact Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP (James Maro, Esq. (484-270-1453) or Adrienne Bell, Esq. (484-270-1435)); toll free at (844) 887-9500; via e-mail at email@example.com; or click https://www.ktmc.com/splunk-inc-securities-class-action?utm_source=PR&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=splunk. According to its filings with the SEC, Splunk “provides innovative software solutions that ingest data from different sources including systems, devices and interactions, and turn[s] that data into meaningful business insights across the organization.” Splunk states that its “Data-to-Everything platform enables users to investigate, monitor, analyze and act on data regardless of format or source.” The Class Period commences on October 21, 2020, when Splunk held a call with several analysts at the Virtual Analyst & Investor Session at .conf.20. On this call, Splunk assured investors that everything was on track for the close of the third quarter, which was just ten days after the call. However, the truth regarding its third quarter was revealed after the market closed on December 2, 2020, when Splunk announced its financial results for its third fiscal quarter for 2021. In its announcement, Splunk reported total revenues of $559 million, down 11% year-over-year and which missed estimates by nearly $60 million. Furthermore, Splunk announced quarterly non-GAAP earnings per share of -$0.07, missing estimates by $0.15, as well as GAAP earnings per share of -$1.26, missing by $0.24 per share. Following this news, shares of Splunk common stock fell, closing at $158.03 per share on December 3, 2020, down over 23% from the December 2, 2020 closing price of $205.91 per share. The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, the defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose to investors that: (1) Splunk was not closing deals with its largest customers in the third fiscal quarter of 2021; (2) Splunk was not hitting the financial targets it had previously announced; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, the defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. If you wish to discuss this securities fraud class action lawsuit or have any questions concerning this notice or your rights or interests with respect to this litigation, please contact Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP (James Maro, Jr., Esq. or Adrienne Bell, Esq.) at (844) 887-9500 (toll free) or (610) 667–7706, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Splunk investors may, no later than February 2, 2021, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP, or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class.

Saskatchewan is reporting an increase of 270 COVID-19 cases and two more deaths from the illness. The Saturday update from the province brings the provincial total to date to 19,985 cases, with 4,043 considered active. Both of the Saskatchewan residents who died were from the Regina zone. One was in the 60-69 age group, and one was in the 80-plus age group. The new cases are located in the following zones: Far northwest (10). Far north central (one). Far northeast (15). Northwest (49). North central (23). Northeast (13). Saskatoon (68). Central east (five). Regina (47). South central (six). Southeast (26). The location information for seven other cases is pending. There are now 199 people with COVID-19 in hospital, including 35 in intensive care. The seven-day average of daily new cases is 311, or 25.7 new cases per 100,000 people. There were 3,071 COVID-19 tests processed in the province on Friday. To date, 468,461 COVID-19 tests have been processed in Saskatchewan. Record number of vaccines administered The province administered 2,857 doses of COVID-19 vaccine on Friday, the highest single-day total in the province to date. The total number of vaccines administered in the province has now reached 16,927. The daily number of vaccinations may drop over the next few weeks as Pfizer works to expand its European manufacturing facility. During this work, the American pharmaceutical giant will reduce deliveries of the COVID-19 vaccine it developed with BioNTech, potentially by half. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is one of the two approved for use in Canada so far. The Saskatchewan Ministry of Health says vaccines will continue to be administered according to priority sequence. The province received a shipment of 4,900 doses of the Moderna vaccine, the other approved for use, on Friday. Distribution is already underway in the central and southeast zones. After a transportation delay caused by poor weather conditions, the far northeast region received its new doses Saturday morning. Vaccination clinics will continue throughout the weekend.

WILMINGTON, Del. — In a dig at the outgoing Trump administration, President-elect Joe Biden said the team of scientific advisers he introduced Saturday will lead with "science and truth. We believe in both.” Biden is elevating the position of science adviser to Cabinet level, a White House first, and said that Eric Lander, a pioneer in mapping the human genome who is in line to be director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, is “one of the most brilliant guys I know.” Lander said Biden has tasked his advisers and “the whole scientific community and the American public” to “rise to this moment." Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris used the rollout of the science team to recall her late mother, a cancer researcher whom she credited with teaching her to think critically. “The science behind climate change is not a hoax. The science behind the virus is not partisan,” Harris said. “The same laws apply, the same evidence holds true regardless of whether or not you accept them.” Both Biden and Harris veered from their prepared texts to hold up the scientists as examples to children across the country. “Superheroes aren’t just about our imagination,” Harris said. “They are walking among us. They are teachers and doctors and scientists, they are vaccine researchers ... and you can grow up to be like them, too.” Lander is the founding director of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and was the lead author of the first paper announcing the details of the human genome. He would be the first life scientist to have that White House job. His predecessor is a meteorologist. The president-elect is retaining the director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins, who worked with Lander on the human genome project. Biden also named two prominent female scientists to co-chair the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. Frances Arnold, a California Institute of Technology chemical engineer who won the 2018 Nobel Prize in chemistry, and MIT vice-president for research and geophysics professor Maria Zuber will lead the outside science advisory council. Lander held that position during Obama administration. Collins, in an email statement, called Lander “brilliant, visionary, exceptionally creative and highly effective in aspiring others.” “I predict he will have a profound transformational effect on American science,” Collins said. The job as director of science and technology policy requires Senate confirmation. Science organizations were also quick to praise Lander and the promotion of the science post to Cabinet level. Elevating the position "clearly signals the administration's intent to involve scientific expertise in every policy discussion,” said Sudip Parikh, chief executive officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's largest general scientific society. Biden picked Princeton's Alondra Nelson, a social scientist who studies science, technology and social inequality, as deputy science policy chief. Lander, also a mathematician, is a professor of biology at both Harvard and MIT and his work has been cited nearly half a million times in scientific literature, one of the most among scientists. He has won numerous science prizes, including a MacArthur “genius” fellowship and a Breakthrough Prize, and is one of Pope Francis' scientific advisers. Lander has said in talks that an opportunity to explain science is his “Achilles' heel": “I love teaching and more than that, I firmly believe that no matter what I do in my own scientific career, the most important impact that I could ever have on the world is going to be through my students.” ___ Borenstein reported from Kensington, Maryland.
