After experiencingth significant demand shocks on account of COVID-19 in H1 2020, the DCB market made significant progress in H2 2020, registering annual shipments of 1. 8 million units with a YoY growth of 9 percent, primarily driven by the revival of demand in the education sector.New York, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Blended Learning and Hybrid Work Power the Global Digital Collaboration Boards Market" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06064397/?utm_source=GNW Despite the slowdown, the pandemic paved the way for the tremendous technology shifts to augment the digital learning experience across schools and colleges. Hybrid and blended learning practices, supported by DCBs as well as cloud-based lesson delivery and video conferencing collaboration platforms, have immensely helped educators and students to create a coherent learning community and address the challenges associated with the early remote learning experiences. Additionally, the blended learning practices have ensured safety, adherence to the changing intermittent lockdown protocols, and enhanced reach. These factors contributed to the surge in DCB sales in H2 2020. Education is expected to remain strong in the forecast period as several school districts are committed to rolling out hybrid learning strategies to accommodate a variety of students’ needs and corroborating learning beyond classrooms. In contrast to the accelerated DCB demand in education, there was a slowdown in the adoption of DCBs in meeting rooms as the businesses primarily focused on honing their video device strategy for remote working. The mass video proliferation meant only a limited number of businesses adopted DCBs to support hybrid work and return-to-work initiatives. However, the need for multimedia collaboration features is increasingly gaining consideration among businesses. This would bode well for the growth of corporate-focused DCBs in the forecast period.This study captures the market dynamics of the digital collaboration boards (DCB) market, including the changing trends, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the adoption of different types of DCBs as well as the forecast of endpoint revenue and unit shipments until 2026. The trends and forecasts revolve around digital whiteboard and all-in-one (AIO) collaboration board sub-segments. Further, the study identifies the growth opportunities for vendors in the DCB market.

Dublin, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "BYD CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electrified) Layout and Strategy Research Report, 2020" company profile has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. Research on BYD's CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electrified): Absence of software and operating system. As we all know, BYD excels in hardware.BYD started with rechargeable batteries and forayed into automotive sector in 2003. It established a joint venture brand 'DENZA' with Daimler in 2010, and accessed to the rail transit field in 2016. BYD has four business segments to date, including automotive, mobile phone components & assembly, rechargeable batteries & photovoltaic, and Skyshuttle.What efforts have BYD made in CASE?Electrification: with technical knowhow about core componentsBYD boasts a full-fledged industry chain concerning vertical integration of core new energy vehicle components such as power batteries and electric drive systems. It ranks second in the Chinese power battery market by share, and released in March 2020 the next-generation power battery - 'Blade Battery". Besides, it takes the second place in the Chinese IGBT market by share as the only Chinese automaker with a complete IGBT industry chain. Its IGBT4.0 has been up to the international mainstream technology level.BYD's latest e-Platform is divided into 5 standard modules: Three-in-one drive system - a three-in-one module comprised of drive motor, electric control and decelerator;Three-in-one high-voltage system - a three-in-one module encompassing high-voltage charging and distribution system on-board charger (OBC), DC-DC converter, and power distribution box (PDU);A low-voltage all-in-one PCB integrating various body controllers;A large intelligent rotating screen with 'DiLink' system;A power battery module. Absence of software and operating system BYD remains the champion by new energy vehicle sales in China for many years, selling 247,800 NEVs in 2018, a bit above Tesla's and ranking first worldwide. However, Tesla's electric vehicle sales posted 366,000 units in 2019, compared with BYD's 229,500 units, indicating a widening gap between them. From product strategies of theirs it can be seen that Tesla are turning from high-priced models to the low-priced ones, while BYD are developing vehicle models from low prices to high prices.Entering 2020 when Volkswagen AG is frustrated in its reform in vehicle software and E/E architecture, most insiders become increasingly aware of Tesla's strong power in software and architecture, the idea of software-defined cars are deeply rooted in people's minds and traditional big auto brands are stepping up investments into software.SAIC established a software branch -Z.ONE Software Company at the outset of 2020 and plans to enlarge its software team to 2,200 talents till 2023. In April 2020, Great Wall Motor set up a tier-first division "digitalization center" involving intelligent driving, smart cockpit, digital marketing platform, data middle platform, user operation platform, etc.Like Tesla, BYD upholds the independent development of core components and system, and they differ in that Tesla is adept at both software and hardware and BYD is expert only in hardware, and that Tesla accomplished vehicle OTA long ago while BYD didn't achieve vehicle OTA until 2020 (OTA success in the model Han).Tesla has lavished tens of billions of dollars for building revolutionary E/E architecture, operating system, AutoPilot, and FSD chip for a decade. Is there any opportunity for BYD to start from scratch and address software inadequacies? It is really a hard nut to crack.Fortunately, BYD is aided by Huawei Technologies since they are in the same city, Shenzhen.BYD has collaborated with Huawei for a long time, particularly in 2019 when the United States posed sanctions on Huawei and Flextronics ceased its services for Huawei, BYD as the second largest mobile phone foundry service provider in the world took the place of Flextronics and is going all out to secure OEM production of Huawei mobile phones.In 2020, BYD's latest Han model get access to Huawei HiCar system and is packed with Huawei's automotive 5G communication module and new-generation NFC key.In future, BYD and Huawei are probable to have vertical cooperation in operating system, computing chip, E/E architecture, sensors, among others.

The Office for National Statistics said the jobless rate fell to 4.9% between December and February, down from 5% in the previous three months.
The dollar dropped to its lowest in nearly seven weeks during the Asian session, while the euro rallied, as investors grew more optimistic about the pace of vaccine rollout in Europe and U.S. Treasury yields remained below their March spikes. The moves are a reverse of what happened in the first quarter of the year, when the dollar strengthened as U.S. Treasury yields rose, offering higher returns on the greenback. At 0728 GMT, the dollar index was down 0.1% at 90.952, having hit a low of 90.877 during the Asian session.
A retired police veteran, a Minnesota resident and a black political hopeful share their thoughts.
Euro zone banks expect to tighten access to credit further in the second quarter, a European Central Bank lending survey showed on Tuesday, as the bloc's pandemic-induced recession drags on and now threatens to disrupt the coming holiday season. Weighted down by over a year of lockdowns, much of Europe's services sector is surviving on emergency cash and the ECB fears that banks will turn off the money taps, forcing firms out of business and leaving the economy scarred. Credit standards, or loan approval criteria, already tightened for firms in the first quarter and lenders see further stiffening ahead, combined with possible bounce in demand.

In The News is a roundup of stories from The Canadian Press designed to kickstart your day. Here is what's on the radar of our editors for the morning of April 20, 2021 ...What we are watching in Canada ...Younger Canadians in several provinces are now able to get the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.Starting today, those aged 40 and over in Ontario and Alberta can get the shot.Previously, the minimum age to receive AstraZeneca was 55 because of a slightly elevated risk of an extremely rare blood clot disorder.British Columbia and Manitoba also dropped the age requirement to 40, starting yesterday.Quebec says it will be lowering the age for AstraZeneca, although it's not clear what that age will be.Quebec's director of public health says a recommendation from the province's immunization committee is expected soon and could be put into effect this week.---Also this ...MONTREAL -- Quebec's Superior Court is expected to rule today on a challenge to the province's law that bans certain public sector workers from wearing religious symbols on the job.Four separate lawsuits challenging Bill 21 were merged into one trial, which was held over several weeks at the end of 2020.The Quebec government says Bill 21 is moderate and supported by a majority of Quebecers, while the bill's critics say it targets racialized minorities who choose to practice their religion.Bill 21 was adopted in June 2019 and bans public sector workers who are deemed to be in positions of authority, including teachers, police officers and judges, from wearing symbols such as hijabs or turbans at work.The law makes pre-emptive use of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms' notwithstanding clause, which shields legislation from court challenges over violations of fundamental rights.In a bid to get around the notwithstanding clause, the plaintiffs invoked the sexual equality guarantees in Section 28 of the Charter, which they maintain are not covered by the notwithstanding clause.---What we are watching in the U.S. ...MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- The jurors who sat quietly off-camera through three weeks of draining testimony in Derek Chauvin's murder trial in George Floyd's death moved into the spotlight, still out of sight but now in control of verdicts awaited by a skittish city. The jury of six white people and six people who are Black or multiracial is set for its first full of deliberations today. The jury, anonymous by order of the judge and sequestered now until they reach a verdict, spent just a few hours on their task Monday after the day was mostly consumed by closing arguments in which prosecutors argued that Chauvin squeezed the life out of Floyd last May in a way that even a child knew was wrong. The defence contended that the now-fired white officer acted reasonably and that the 46-year-old Floyd died of a heart condition and illegal drug use. Chauvin, 45, is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, all of which require the jury to conclude that his actions were a "substantial causal factor" in Floyd’s death and that his use of force was unreasonable. The most serious charge carries up to 40 years in prison. With the case drawing to a close, some stores were boarded up in Minneapolis. The courthouse was ringed with concrete barriers and razor wire, and National Guard troops were on patrol. Floyd's death set off protests last spring in the city and across the U.S. that sometimes turned violent. The city has also been on edge in recent days over the deadly police shooting of a 20-year-old Black man, Daunte Wright, in a nearby suburb on April 11. About 300 protesters marched in the streets outside the courthouse shortly after the jury got the case, lining up behind a banner reading, "Justice 4 George Floyd & all stolen lives. The world is watching."---What we are watching in the rest of the world ...LONDON -- Now that the Royal Family has said farewell to Prince Philip, attention will turn to the Queen's 95th birthday on Wednesday and, in coming months, the celebrations marking her 70 years on the throne. This combination of events is reminding the United Kingdom and Commonwealth nations that the reign of the Queen, the only monarch most of her subjects have ever known, is finite. That has triggered speculation about how long she will remain on the throne, what the monarchy will look like in the future and, for some, even whether it should continue to exist.While most observers say the queen is unlikely to abdicate given her lifelong commitment to public service, she has already started to turn over more responsibilities to Prince Charles, 72, her eldest son. That process is likely to accelerate following Philip’s death. Charles’ increased role began gradually, when the queen began cutting back on long-haul flights, resulting in Charles taking her place at a 2013 Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Sri Lanka.Then in 2017, he represented the queen at the annual Remembrance Day ceremony marking the end of the First World War, laying the monarch’s wreath at the foot of the Cenotaph in London. It was the first time the Queen hadn’t performed the solemn ritual, other than when she was pregnant or out of the country. Since then, Charles has taken on an increasing number of public engagements and been named the Queen’s designated successor as head of the Commonwealth, a voluntary association of 54 nations, including Canada, with links to the British Empire.---On this day in 1968 ...Pierre Trudeau was sworn in as Canada's 15th prime minister, two weeks after winning the Liberal party leadership. He went on to win a majority government in a general election that was swept by the "Trudeau-mania" craze. Trudeau was Canada's third-longest serving PM, behind William Lyon Mackenzie King and John A. Macdonald.---In entertainment ...Organizers of the country-fuelled Boots and Hearts music festival are pulling the plug on this year's summertime event.Republic Live announced Monday that ongoing COVID-19 restrictions in Ontario made it impossible to move forward with their plan to hold massive concerts less than four months from now.Boots and Hearts is one of the province's biggest music festivals and was set to be held over the Aug. 5 weekend at the Burl's Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ont., about 30 kilometres north of Barrie.Country music stars booked to perform included Dan + Shay, Sam Hunt and Eric Church.Summer music festivals have been in a tough spot as COVID-19 cases surge across the country, making it uncertain whether any crowds will be able to gather by July and August.Many of Canada's music festivals opted to forgo planning a 2021 season while others have dropped off the schedule, including RBC Bluesfest in Ottawa, and Country Thunder festivals in Craven, Sask. and Calgary.A few festivals still remain on the schedule, among them the Calgary Folk Music Festival, which said it will be "cautiously optimistic and adaptable" this year, and Montreal's Osheaga Music and Arts Festival which said last week it was "too early to talk about our summer festivals at this moment as Montreal is still in a red zone."---ICYMI ...An online fundraiser launched over the weekend aims to provide support for essential workers in Ontario who need time off due to COVID-19 and don't have paid sick leave.Organizers say the fund will pay out $160 per day for up to five days to those who need it, distributed on a first-come, first-served basis as long as money is available.They say the program operates on the honour system, trusting that only essential workers in financial need will apply.The fundraiser website says the project was launched by three women, two of them registered nurses.The fundraiser has collected nearly more than $20,000 of its $80,000 goal.The Ontario government has faced mounting calls during the pandemic to implement paid sick leave.---This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 20, 2021 The Canadian Press
This research study aims to provide an overview of 5G solutions, key use cases, and applications adopted in the automotive industry. The study focuses on the strategies adopted by original equipment manufacturers, the business models used by them, and key vendors analysis.New York, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Strategic Analysis of 5G Technology and Use Cases Transforming the Automotive Industry" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06064398/?utm_source=GNW 5G technology will be critical for the automotive industry particularly when higher levels of autonomous vehicles penetrate the roads. The current 4G network is simply not fast enough to give autonomous vehicles human-like reflexes and cooperative driving capabilities in the future. Driverless cars are just one of the many incredible technologies that are likely to be ushered in with 5G. 5G will also present exciting possibilities for Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) connectivity. Furthermore, the technology’s low latency will make future autonomous vehicles extraordinarily safe and reliable on roads. This study will explore the different use cases that will require high-speed, low-latency 5G connectivity in the auto industry in the future and market potential for 5G in the industry.Initially, 5G will be used for HD media streaming and advanced connected services capabilities in vehicles. The automotive industry will pilot edge computing, V2V coordinated driving, automated lane change, automated lane merge, automated overtaking, and teleoperated driving use cases using 5G from 2022. 5G today is very nascent and is being deployed on Non-Standalone (NSA) cellular towers for immediate implementation across industries. The current 5G download and upload speeds through NSA are not sufficient to perform ultra-reliable and low-latency use cases in autonomous vehicles. 5G NR infrastructure will be able to provide the promised 5G data speeds and latency. However, 5G NR will depend on 3GPP’s Release 16 and 17 guidelines, and MNOs are currently mitigating legal, operational, and environmental issues and challenges to construct NR base stations. It will take another 4-to-5 years to see global placements of 5G NR cell-towers and base stations. Consortiums’ (e.g., 5GAA) push for 5G for V2X services is the biggest 5G influencer for the automotive industry. 5G safety-based V2X use cases will largely depend on future regulations, intense R&D testing, and infrastructure availability and are expected to see commercialization in the industry after 2025.Some of the growth opportunities identified in this study explained below.1. Running of L4 vehicles individually does not require 5G network connectivity. However, safe driving of two or more L4 vehicles on highways and roads will require 5G NR infrastructure to transmit data regularly between L4 vehicles and aid in safe driving coordination.2. Effective use of edge cloud as well as 5G NR infrastructure will support the futuristic deployment of C-V2X services and smart city and traffic relevant use cases.3. mmWave bands will be critical for advanced 5G use case testing and deployments in the future. However, they are not utilized much by MNOs due to low signal coverage issues.

These "test rocks" – the heaviest weighing 3,200 kilograms (7,000 lbs)– are part of research aimed at understanding the growing risk of rockfalls around the world. As climate change warms high-altitude mountain regions, boulders and rocks long frozen into place are being loosed and tumbling downslope. "All of this is going in one direction: more unstable," said Christian Huggel, a glaciologist at the University of Zurich who was not involved in the mountain experiments.

Banks including DBS Group, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG), OCBC and Standard Chartered are set to bid for parts of Citigroup's consumer business in Asia, people with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters. The move comes after Citi said that it would exit from its consumer franchises in 13 markets, 10 of which are in Asia, as it refocuses on its more lucrative institutional and wealth management businesses in these markets. The businesses Citi is exiting had $82 billion in total assets and were allocated $7 billion in tangible common equity last year, Citi has said.
