EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is set to deliver an update this morning on the state of the province's COVID-19 vaccine rollout. The premier has said the rollout is critical, as the impact of COVID-19 on the province has become a race between the rise of the variants and getting a critical mass of people vaccinated. The variants, which are more contagious than the original strain, now make up about half of Alberta's 14,000 active cases. The most recent numbers show 376 people in hospital because of the virus, 90 of whom are in intensive care. There have been almost 848,000 doses of vaccine administered so far in the province. Kenney has also been dealing with demands from almost half of his backbench United Conservative caucus to ease public-health restrictions on the grounds that the rules are onerous and unnecessary. This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 12, 2021. The Canadian Press
U.S. President Joe Biden's interim regulators are wasting no time unraveling Wall Street-friendly measures introduced under former Republican President Donald Trump, using quick-fix legal tactics. They have spiked or stalled more than a dozen contentious Trump-era measures that critics said eroded consumer protections, weakened enforcement, and curbed investors' ability to push for environmental, social and governance (ESG) changes. Rather than embarking on the lengthy process of rewriting the rules, the agencies have in many instances used speedy legal tools, according to lawyers, consumer groups, and a review by Reuters.

BERLIN — The head of Chancellor Angela Merkel's party, Armin Laschet, on Monday rallied his party's leadership behind his bid to become the centre-right candidate to be Germany's next leader. That gave Laschet an initial advantage, but a rival who also has declared his ambition, Markus Soeder, resisted pressure for a immediate decision on who will run for chancellor in the Sept. 26 election, and pointed to his superior poll ratings. The conservative Union bloc wants to resolve the question after months of shadow-boxing between Laschet, the head of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union, and Soeder, who leads its smaller Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union. Laschet and Soeder — the governors of Germany's two most populous states, North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria respectively — both officially declared Sunday that they're prepared to run, but insisted they will find a harmonious solution. They didn't specify how. Both have advantages and disadvantages: Soeder's poll ratings are much stronger, but Laschet is the recently elected leader of by far the bigger party. “The picture (in the CDU leadership) is clear,” the CDU general secretary, Paul Ziemiak, said after a lengthy meeting Monday. “There is a broad majority for Armin Laschet as the chancellor candidate of the CDU and CSU.” The party stopped short of a formal decision, however. “Everyone wants a quick decision,” Laschet told a news conference. “All the facts are on the table. The problems we have to solve ... are so big that we shouldn't occupy ourselves any longer with our internal issues.” Laschet’s support in the CDU is a decisive factor because his party runs in 15 of Germany’s 16 states, while the CSU runs only in Bavaria. The CDU's relatively weak local branch in Berlin backed Soeder. Some lawmakers also have backed him in recent weeks. Soeder said Sunday he is ready to run “if the CDU — which is the bigger sister, that's very clear — supports this broadly.” He added that, if the CDU decides otherwise, "we would accept that.” Soeder, 54, said the candidate should be the one with the best chances in the election, in which Merkel isn't seeking a fifth term after 16 years in power. That underlined his strength in polls after cultivating an image as a decisive backer of tough action in the coronavirus pandemic. Soeder, who won his own party leadership's backing in a separate meeting Monday, signalled afterward that he still hopes for support from CDU lawmakers who worry about their own chances of re-election. “Polls aren't everything, but they are a ... clear indication of what the population thinks, and we can't uncouple ourselves from the majority of people in our country,” he said in Munich. Soeder said there needs to be more discussion on the candidate with more than just top party officials but it shouldn't be an “endless process.” He expects a result this week. Laschet said, in Monday's CDU meeting, “everyone made clear, and everyone had countless examples, how polls can change in the shortest period of time.” Laschet, 60, was elected CDU leader in January. He hasn’t enjoyed a honeymoon, most recently garnering criticism for appearing to dither over how to tackle a resurgence in virus cases. Last month, the CDU lost two state elections. National polls have shown the Union giving up gains it made thanks to Merkel’s management of the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic. It has been hurt among other things by a slow start to vaccinations and allegations that several CDU and CSU lawmakers profited from business deals last year as Germany scrambled to secure masks. The Union still leads national polls ahead of the environmentalist Greens and the centre-left Social Democrats. The Greens plan to announce next Monday which of the party's two co-leaders will make its first bid for the chancellery. The Social Democrats have nominated Finance Minister Olaf Scholz as their candidate. Soeder's CSU twice before provided the centre-right candidate for chancellor, Franz Josef Strauss in 1980 and Edmund Stoiber in 2002. Both lost to centre-left incumbents.

Leading Computer Makers Launch Workstations and NVIDIA-Certified Systems for Omniverse; BMW Group, Ericsson, Foster + Partners, WPP Among Early Adopters NVIDIA Omniverse creates digital twin BMW Group factory The BMW Group is the first car manufacturer to use NVIDIA Omniverse to design an end-to-end digital twin of an entire factory. SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GTC -- NVIDIA today announced the coming general availability of NVIDIA Omniverse™ Enterprise, the world’s first technology platform that enables global 3D design teams working across multiple software suites to collaborate in real time in a shared virtual space. NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise makes it possible for 3D production teams — which are often large, diverse in skills and geographically dispersed — to work seamlessly together on complex projects. Rather than requiring in-person meetings or exchanging and iterating on massive files, designers, artists and reviewers can work simultaneously in a virtual world from anywhere, on any device. NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise has been in early evaluations with some of the world’s most sophisticated design teams at companies like BMW Group, Foster + Partners and WPP. It follows the launch three months ago of an open beta for individuals, which has been downloaded by nearly 17,000 users. “Every few decades, technologies converge to enable a whole new thing – Omniverse is such an invention,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “Building on NVIDIA’s entire body of work, Omniverse lets us create and simulate shared virtual 3D worlds that obey the laws of physics. The immediate applications of Omniverse are incredible, from connecting design teams for remote collaboration to simulating digital twins of factories and robots. The science-fiction metaverse is near.” Omniverse Enterprise is a new platform that includes the NVIDIA Omniverse Nucleus server, which manages the database shared among clients, and NVIDIA Omniverse Connectors, which are plugins to industry-leading design applications. It also includes two end-user applications: NVIDIA Omniverse Create — which accelerates scene composition and allows users in real time to interactively assemble, light, simulate and render scenes — and NVIDIA Omniverse View, which powers seamless collaborative design and visualization of architectural and engineering projects with photorealistic rendering. NVIDIA RTX™ Virtual Workstation (vWS) software, also part of the platform, gives collaborators the freedom to run their graphics-intensive 3D applications from anywhere. Omniverse Enterprise is tested and optimized for professionals to run on NVIDIA RTX laptops and desktops as well as NVIDIA-Certified Systems™ on the NVIDIA EGX™ platform. This makes it possible to deploy the tool across organizations of any scale, from small workgroups using local desktops and laptops, to globally distributed teams accessing the data center using various devices. Global Leaders Adopt Omniverse Among the more than 400 companies that have been evaluating Omniverse over the past two years are: The BMW Group is the first car manufacturer to use NVIDIA Omniverse to design an end-to-end digital twin of an entire factory. Thousands of planners, product engineers, facility managers and lean experts within the global production network are able to collaborate in a single virtual environment to design, plan, engineer, simulate and optimize extremely complex manufacturing systems before a factory is actually built or a new product is integrated. “NVIDIA Omniverse and NVIDIA AI give us the chance to simulate all 31 factories in our production network. All elements of the complete factory model — including the associates, the robots, the buildings and the assembly parts — can be simulated to support a wide range of AI-enabled use cases such as virtual factory planning, autonomous robots, predictive maintenance and big data analytics,” said Milan Nedeljkovic, member of the board of management of BMW AG, responsible for production. “These new innovations will reduce the planning times, improve flexibility and precision, and at the end produce 30 percent more efficient planning processes. Omniverse is a game-changer that is setting the standard for collaboration platforms for our industry.” Industrial Light & Magic has been evaluating Omniverse for a broad range of possible workflows, but particularly for bringing together content created across multiple traditional applications, and facilitating simultaneous collaboration across teams that are distributed all over the world. Omniverse has the potential to remove the technical barriers that used to get in the way of the creative process, facilitating real-time decision-making across all disciplines. Foster + Partners, the U.K. architectural design and engineering firm, is implementing Omniverse to enable seamless collaborative design to visualization capabilities to teams spread across 14 countries. “Omniverse is a revolutionary platform that has allowed our designers to collaborate and visualize multiple design changes to a scene simultaneously while working on their software of choice,” said Martha Tsigkari, partner with the Applied Research and Development Group at Foster + Partners. “As we can review design options in parallel, we have much more time for creative design and visualization. Integration of futuristic technologies such as machine learning will bring more opportunities to assist the creative process in the future.” WPP, the world’s largest marketing services organization, is using the NVIDIA Omniverse platform to reinvent the way advertising content is made by replacing traditional on-location production methods with entirely virtual production. When COVID-19 restrictions were put in place, the WPP team faced limitations shooting commercials for clients on location. They used the NVIDIA Omniverse platform to collaboratively design, build and simulate a photoreal virtual forest without having to shoot it in person. “WPP’s global content production specialist Hogarth is the largest of its kind in the world. We manage over 1,500 shoots per year for our clients,” said Richard Glasson, Global CEO of Hogarth. “Omniverse has improved the way we work by enabling multiple artists at different touchpoints in the pipeline to collaborate on a single scene virtually at the same time and from any place in the world. It dramatically reduces our carbon footprint and brings sustainable production to life.” Ericsson, a leading telecommunications company, is using the Omniverse platform to simulate and visualize future 5G networks. “The NVIDIA Omniverse platform lets our teams virtually explore any city’s unique geography — whether it is San Francisco’s hills or Frankfurt’s high-rises — and its impact on radio network performance,” said Joakim Sorelius, head of Development Unit Networks at Ericsson. “By combining our extensive simulation expertise with the stunning visualizations of Omniverse, we bring radio network analysis to a new level, creating insights that ensure our customers get the best possible 5G experience. We see Omniverse as the future of collaboration and planning.” Activision Publishing, Inc., is exploring NVIDIA Omniverse’s AI-search capabilities for its award-winning, blockbuster video game experiences to allow artists, game developers and designers to search intuitively through massive databases of untagged 3D assets using text or images. Building the Metaverse — Open Standards and Interoperability The world’s 3D industries are making great strides toward building the metaverse — a massive shared virtual world — by adopting open file frameworks like Pixar’s Universal Scene Description, and encouraging interoperability between software applications. The NVIDIA Omniverse ecosystem continues to grow, connecting industry-leading applications from software companies such as Bentley Systems, Adobe, Autodesk, Epic Games, ESRI, Graphisoft, Trimble, McNeel & Associates, Blender, Marvelous Designer, Reallusion and wrnch Inc. Bentley Systems, the infrastructure engineering software company, announced it is bringing infrastructure digital twins to NVIDIA Omniverse. Bentley is the first to harness real-time rendering, AI and simulation capabilities of NVIDIA Omniverse. A complete list of software partners is available at nvidia.com/omniverse. AvailabilityNVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise software is available on a subscription basis and includes NVIDIA’s enterprise support services. NVIDIA’s partner network of leading computer makers — including ASUS, BOXX Technologies, Cisco, Dell Technologies, HP, Lenovo and Supermicro — are supporting NVIDIA Omniverse Enterprise.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Democrat Charles Booker, whose unabashedly progressive campaign in Kentucky came up just short in last year's Senate primary, said Monday that he's forming an exploratory committee as he weighs a follow-up race in 2022 against Republican incumbent Sen. Rand Paul. Booker, a Black former state lawmaker, continued to tout themes of racial and economic justice, universal access to health care and environmental activism in taking a big step toward challenging Paul — a libertarian-leaning conservative and ally of former President Donald Trump. “Kentuckians deserve a senator who will fight as hard for us as we fight for each other, and that’s why I’m formally announcing an exploratory committee for U.S. Senate,” Booker said in a news release. “We can, we will and we must build a future that works for all of us instead of just for a wealthy few.” Booker's announcement is a step short of officially launching his candidacy, but he's long been seen as a leading Democratic prospect for the 2022 Senate race in Kentucky. Forming an exploratory committee allows Booker to poll, travel the state, make phone calls and fundraise while testing the waters without officially declaring himself as a candidate. Despite the strong name recognition Booker garnered in last year's Senate campaign, the former Louisville lawmaker would face an uphill fight against Paul in Republican-trending Kentucky — a state that has not elected a Democrat to the Senate since Wendell Ford in 1992. Last year, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell trounced well-funded Democratic challenger Amy McGrath, who narrowly defeated Booker in the state's Democratic primary. Responding to Booker's announcement Monday, Paul spokeswoman Kelsey Cooper said Kentuckians “know there is no greater champion for the values they hold dear than” Paul. “And like President Trump stated in his recent endorsement, Dr. Paul has a proven record of fighting the liberal Washington agenda,” she said. Paul, an eye surgeon, will be seeking his third Senate term in 2022. Booker seized momentum late in last year’s Democratic Senate primary on the strength of a “Hood to the Holler” campaign that highlighted the common interests of Black Democrats in the cities and middle- and low-income white people in the mountains of eastern Kentucky — which he collectively has defined as “people in forgotten places.” He returned to those themes in his social media announcement Monday. Booker referenced the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor in her home during a botched Louisville police raid last year. “When our sister’s door was kicked in, we marched," Booker said. "Those choices have already changed Kentucky forever.” Last week, Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear signed a partial ban on no-knock warrants after months of demonstrations set off by Taylor's death. Taylor, a 26-year-old Louisville emergency medical technician studying to become a nurse, was shot multiple times in March 2020 after being roused from her bed by police. No drugs were found, and the warrant was later found to be flawed. In his announcement, Booker also called for guaranteed, quality health care for everyone and a Green New Deal in coal-producing Kentucky to “ensure a healthy planet for generations to come.” ___ Associated Press Writer Piper Hudspeth Blackburn contributed to this report.

Doctors in the Canadian province of Ontario may soon have to decide who can and cannot receive treatment in intensive care as the number of coronavirus infections sets records and patients are packed into hospitals still stretched from a December wave. Canada's most populous province is canceling elective surgeries, admitting adults to a major children's hospital and preparing field hospitals after the number of COVID-19 patients in ICUs jumped 31% to 612 in the week leading up to Sunday, according to data from the Ontario Hospital Association. The sharp increase in Ontario hospital admissions is also straining supplies of tocilizumab, a drug often given to people seriously ill with COVID-19.
