Some 4,000 people will attend the BRIT Awards next month, in what organisers of Britain's pop music honours said would be the first major indoor music event with a live audience as the country emerges from COVID-19 lockdown. The ceremony, to be held on May 11 at London's O2 arena, will form part of the UK government’s Events Research Programme, looking at whether major events can take place in closed environments without social distancing. This means audience members, of which 2,500 will be key workers who will be gifted tickets, will not have to wear face masks inside the arena but will have to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test result to enter the venue.
WASHINGTON — Max Scherzer struck out nine in six innings to move up to No. 21 on the career Ks leaderboard, and Alex Avila drove in the game's lone run with one of his two doubles, helping the Washington Nationals edge the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 on a windy Wednesday. Scherzer (1-1) retired 12 of his last 13 batters, working in short sleeves as gusts of air topping 30 mph rippled his white jersey and sent napkins and other debris twirling around Nationals Park on a 50-degree late afternoon. The three-time Cy Young Award winner struck out Dylan Carlson swinging through a 93 mph fastball with his 109th and final pitch. The righty's strikeout of Justin Williams to end the fourth gave Scherzer 2,814 for his career, moving him one ahead of Hall of Famer Mike Mussina. Next up: Mickey Lolich, whose 2,832 strikeouts rank 20th in MLB history. It wasn't easy early for Scherzer, who loaded the bases with one out in the first inning via a hit batter, infield single and walk, but got out of it by striking out Carlson and Matt Carpenter. Scherzer needed 49 pitches just to get through two innings, but he eventually got in a groove, giving up a total of four hits and one walk, while lowering his ERA to 1.80. Washington scored in the second off Carlos Martínez (0-4) when Avila’s two-out double to left — his first hit as a member of the Nationals — scored Josh Bell from first base. Avila doubled to right in the fifth, but was stranded at third. Martínez allowed four hits in six innings in his longest outing since going seven on July 7, 2018. For the second game in a row, Nationals righty Tanner Rainey entered in relief in the seventh to protect a 1-0 lead. On Tuesday, he put Washington in a hole by allowing two runs, before a comeback provided a 3-2 win for the Nationals. This time, he worked around a double by striking out the side. In the eighth, Daniel Hudson gave up a hit and walked two batters to load the bases with two outs, but got Carpenter to fly out to right, before Brad Hand worked the ninth for his third save this season. It's his 24th successful save chance in a row, the longest active streak in the majors. NO SOTO Nationals slugger Juan Soto isn't exactly sure what caused the strained left shoulder that landed him on the 10-day injured list. The 2020 NL batting champion said Wednesday he feels sore whenever he throws a ball, but not when he swings. He has been told that he needs rest more than anything else. “It’s better to take a couple days now than lose half of the season,” Soto said. TRAINER'S ROOM Cardinals: OF Tyler O'Neill (right groin) will play a full simulated game Thursday to give the team “a little more intel to make a decision” on whether to activate him, as expected, from the 10-day IL on Friday, manager Mike Shildt said. Nationals: LHP Jon Lester will pitch one more simulated game at the team's alternate training site, with the aim of throwing five-plus innings and about 90 pitches, before making his season debut. ... RHP Stephen Strasburg (10-day IL, right shoulder inflammation) threw from 75 feet Tuesday. UP NEXT Cardinals: Open a three-game series at home Friday against the Reds, with St. Louis LHP Kwang Hyun Kim (0-0, 9.00 ERA) on the mound. That begins the Cardinals' stretch of 17 consecutive days with a scheduled game. Nationals: Head to New York for a three-game set at the Mets that begins Friday with RHP Erick Fedde (1-1, 5.56 ERA) pitching. ___ More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Howard Fendrich, The Associated Press

ViveRE Communities Inc. (TSXV: VCOM) ("ViveRE" or the "Company") provides the following corporate update.
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — A Michigan agency delivered a split decision Wednesday in a high-stakes battle over a pipeline that carries oil beneath a channel that connects two of the Great Lakes. The Michigan Public Service Commission is considering Enbridge Inc.'s application to replace the section of its Line 5 that runs beneath the Straits of Mackinac. The new segment would be housed in a proposed underground tunnel. The company reached a deal with former Republican Gov. Rick Snyder in 2018 to build the $500 million tunnel. Enbridge has obtained permits from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy but still needs them from the state Public Service Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The commission said Wednesday that in evaluating whether to issue a permit, it would not pass judgment on whether the entire 645-mile (1,038-kilometre) line that runs across northern Michigan and Wisconsin should keep operating. Environmental activists and Native tribes who oppose Line 5 had urged the commission to consider that question, contending the entire pipeline is a hazard. The agency said instead it would focus only on the 4-mile-long (6.4-kilometre-long) section that crosses the straits connecting Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. “The issue of public need for the pipelinehas been a long-settled matter since the pipeline was first approved in 1953,” it said. But the commission sided with pipeline opponents by ruling that emissions of climate-warming gases would be among factors it considers in determining whether to issue the permit. Line 5 daily carries about 23 million gallons (87 million litres) of crude oil and natural gas liquids from Superior, Wisconsin, to Sarnia, Ontario. When burned, such fossil fuels emit carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. The commission said it was required under the Michigan Environmental Protection Act to consider not only pollution from building the tunnel and new pipeline segment, but also from the petroleum liquids they transport. The agency didn't say how much weight it would give that issue in determining whether to grant the permit but said it would welcome evidence. “They recognize these gases are a pollutant and impact the environment because they contribute to climate change,” said Margrethe Kearney, senior attorney with the Environmental Law & Policy Center, which opposes the pipeline. “This creates a hurdle that Enbridge has to address.” Enbridge said in a statement it would provide information on the matter as the commission requests it. “Our aim is simple,” the company said. “To replace the two pipelines in the straits with an even safer pipeline encased in a concrete tunnel well below the lakebed.” Whitney Gravelle, chairwoman of the Bay Mills Indian Community, said she was disappointed that the commission declined to consider whether Line 5 threatens treaty-granted tribal fishing rights in area waters. “The decision turned a blind eye toward consideration of tribal nations, which will be most impacted by this tunnel proposal,” Gravelle said. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has revoked a 1953 state easement that allowed the pipeline to run beneath the straits wants the line shut down by May 12. Enbridge is contesting her order in federal court. John Flesher, The Associated Press
If you waited a bit longer to take off the winter tires, it might have been for good reason. Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a snowfall warning, saying as much as 25 cm of snow is expected to fall in northwestern New Brunswick. The warnings were issued at 3:54 p.m. Wednesday and are for Madawaska and Restigouche counties, which include the cities of Edmundston and Campbellton. The agency says between 15 and 25 cm of snow is expected to fall in those regions starting Wednesday night and lasting until early Friday. "Current forecast guidance is suggesting that the precipitation will change to snow later tonight and persist Thursday into Friday," said Environment Canada. "Freezing rain is possible during the transition from rain to snow. Brisk northwest winds will develop in the wake of this system." The agency warns that rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. Environment Canada meanwhile issued special weather statements for the Victoria County and Mount Carleton areas, calling for 10 to 15 cm of snow in those regions over the same time period.
VANCOUVER — Discount U.S. airline JetBlue is expanding its operations with its first flights to Canada. The New York-based airline says it will launch flights between Vancouver and New York, as well as seasonal service to Boston, starting in the summer of 2022. The move is part of plans to add seven destinations to its route map from New York or Boston starting later this year. It is also adding Honduras. JetBlue says in a news release the expansion is part of the next phase of the alliance between JetBlue and American Airlines that was authorized by the U.S. Department of Transportation earlier this year. The move comes ahead of what the travel industry hopes will be a surge in travel from pent-up demand as COVID-19 vaccinations expand and the pandemic wanes. Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning at JetBlue, says customers and crew members have been asking to add flights to the middle of the U.S. and into Canada. "We can’t wait to shake up the status quo in these markets currently dominated by high-fare carriers," he stated. JetBlue will have to compete with Canadian airlines, including Air Canada and WestJet Airlines. Vancouver Airport Authority CEO Tamara Vrooman says it is "delighted" that JetBlue has selected Vancouver as its first Canadian destination. "As we move through the pandemic and prepare for a safe and healthy return to non-essential travel, this new service, scheduled for Summer 2022, gives us all something to look forward to."

(TSX:PSD) (OTCQX:PLSDF) (“Pulse” or “the Company”) is pleased to report its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements, accompanying notes and MD&A are being filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and will be available on Pulse’s website at www.pulseseismic.com. HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2021 Total revenue was $4.8 million compared to $2.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020; Net earnings were $33,000 ($0.00 per share basic and diluted) compared to a net loss of $2.8 million ($0.05 per share basic and diluted) in the first quarter of 2020; Cash EBITDA was $3.6 million ($0.07 per share basic and diluted) compared to $1.1 million ($0.02 per share basic and diluted) in the first quarter of 2020; Shareholder free cash flow was $2.6 million ($0.05 per share basic and diluted) compared to $752,000 ($0.01 per share basic and diluted) in the first quarter of 2020; During Q1 2021 the Company repaid a total of $8.8 million of senior long-term debt.

CORPORATE UPDATE AND COVID-19 UPDATE Pulse remains committed to the health and safety of its employees. Since March 13, 2020 many Pulse employees have been continuously working remotely. In addition, the Company has a small group working at its warehouse facility. The guidance of health authorities continues to be closely monitored and Pulse has a minimum number of staff working in the office from time to time, as is deemed necessary. Pulse’s business is supplying licences to a digitally-based product, seismic data and, as a result, the combination of staff working in the office and remotely allows for timely responses to customers’ needs. The Company’s top priorities continue to be the safety of its employees, preserving cash and protecting the balance sheet while weathering these uncertain times.

These financial measures do not have standard definitions prescribed by IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies. The Company has included these non-GAAP financial measures because management, investors, analysts and others use them as measures of the Company’s financial performance. The Company’s definition of cash EBITDA is cash available for interest payments, cash taxes, repayment of debt, purchase of its shares, discretionary capital expenditures and the payment of dividends, and is calculated as earnings (loss) from operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization less participation survey revenue, plus any non-cash and non-recurring expenses. Cash EBITDA excludes participation survey revenue as these funds are directly used to fund specific participation surveys and this revenue is not available for discretionary capital expenditures. The Company believes cash EBITDA assists investors in comparing Pulse’s results on a consistent basis without regard to participation survey revenue and non-cash items, such as depreciation and amortization, which can vary significantly depending on accounting methods or non-operating factors such as historical cost. Cash EBITDA per share is defined as cash EBITDA divided by the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the period. Shareholder free cash flow further refines the calculation of capital available to invest in growing the Company’s 2D and 3D seismic data library, to repay debt, to purchase its common shares and to pay dividends by deducting non-discretionary expenditures from cash EBITDA. Non-discretionary expenditures are defined as debt financing costs (net of deferred financing expenses amortized in the current period) and current tax provisions. Shareholder free cash flow per share is defined as shareholder free cash flow divided by the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the period. These non-GAAP financial measures are defined, calculated and reconciled to the nearest GAAP financial measures in the Management's Discussion and Analysis. OUTLOOK With economic, industry and pandemic-related uncertainty all remaining unusually high, Pulse is unable to issue a specific outlook concerning industry and market conditions over the next several quarters. Commodity prices strengthened somewhat over the winter, the outlook for industry capital expenditures and field activities has improved modestly, and the pace and value of industry M&A activity have picked up over 2020. Revenues from mineral lease auctions (“land sales”) in B.C. and Alberta in the first three months of 2021 remained at or near record lows. When combined with the Company’s data library sales results to date in 2021, Pulse’s overall assessment is that the outlook for traditional sales for the balance of the year remains unclear, while transaction-based sales of any size could occur at any time. Having spent the past six years reducing controllable costs, maximizing efficiencies, maintaining a strong balance sheet, and optimizing its access to credit, all while significantly increasing the size of its data library asset, Pulse remains well-prepared for a range of industry conditions in 2021 and beyond. As it has repeatedly demonstrated, the Company can generate positive shareholder free cash flow at or even below its current level of quarterly sales. Pulse will continue to seek further cost reductions where possible, without impairing the Company’s ability to serve its clients, conduct sales and act on attractive opportunities. The seismic library’s data does not deteriorate or expire and incurs minimal maintenance costs. CORPORATE PROFILE Pulse is a market leader in the acquisition, marketing and licensing of 2D and 3D seismic data to the western Canadian energy sector. Pulse owns the largest licensable seismic data library in Canada, currently consisting of approximately 65,310 square kilometres of 3D seismic and 829,207 kilometres of 2D seismic. The library extensively covers the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin, where most of Canada’s oil and natural gas exploration and development occur.
