BERLIN — Germany has passed the grim milestone of more than 15,000 deaths from the coronavirus.The Robert Koch Institute, the country’s disease control centre, said Thursday that another 389 deaths were recorded overnight, bringing the total since the start of the pandemic to 15,160.Germany has seen 983,588 total cases of the coronavirus after adding 22,368 overnight, the agency said.Germany embarked on a so-called “wave-breaker” shutdown on Nov. 2, closing restaurants, bars, sports and leisure facilities but leaving schools, shops and hair salons open.It was initially slated to last four weeks but Chancellor Angela Merkel and the country’s 16 state governors agreed late Wednesday to extend it through Dec. 20 with a goal of pushing the number of new coronavirus cases in each region below 50 per 100,000 inhabitants per week. It’s currently at 140 per 100,000.Merkel said that while existing measures have succeeded in halting an surge in new coronavirus infections, they have stabilized at a high level.___HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE VIRUS OUTBREAK:— Americans risk travelling over Thanksgiving despite warnings— Congress braces for Biden’s national coronavirus strategy— Pandemic gave locals fleeting taste of a tourist-free Hawaii— To avoid any traces of the coronavirus that might be lurking on surfaces, Americans have been wiping down groceries, wearing surgical gloves in public and leaving mail packages out for an extra day or two. But experts say the national fixation on scrubbing can sometimes be overkill.— California has reported a record number of coronavirus cases on the eve of Thanksgiving. More than 18,000 COVID-19 infections were reported Wednesday.— Though the first real snow has yet to fall across much of Europe, ski buffs are imagining with dread a bizarre scene: Skiing in Zermatt in Switzerland while lifts idle across the border in Italy’s Aosta valley.___Follow AP’s coverage at https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-pandemic and https://apnews.com/UnderstandingtheOutbreak___HERE’S WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING:SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea has recorded more than 500 new coronavirus cases in 24 hours for the first time in about eight months as health authorities struggle to contain a fresh surge of infections.The Asian nation has been experiencing a spike in cases since it relaxed stringent social distancing rules last month. To deal with the latest surge, the country on Tuesday re-imposed tough distancing guidelines in Seoul and some other areas.South Korea’s cases initially peaked last February and March, with officials reporting hundreds of fresh cases daily, mostly tied to a religious sect. Another major outbreak came during the summer, and was mostly tied to the greater Seoul area.Officials say the latest bout is worrisome because there are many cluster infections tied to a variety of sources.___BEIJING — China is reporting nine new coronavirus cases in the vast Inner Mongolia region, where authorities have closed schools, suspended flights, shuttered public venues and banned banquets and other gatherings.The cluster has been centred on Manzhouli, a city of more than 200,000 people on the border with Russia. Authorities ordered testing of all residents to detect new cases after the country’s latest local outbreak first emerged late last week. Ground transport to and from the city has been largely cut off and movement around the city restricted.Elsewhere in China, local infections have also been reported lately in the financial hub of Shanghai and the northern port of Tianjin, although the government’s pandemic update Thursday listed no new cases in those cities.___KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri’s two largest metropolitan areas are cracking down on restaurants that violate rules designed to stem the spread of the coronavirus.Kansas City’s authorities found two dozen bars and restaurants in violation of the city’s new pandemic restrictions after a weekend sweep of 185 establishments. Previously, the city relied primarily on complaints to enforce the rules.The new rules limit bars and restaurants to 50% capacity and require closing by 10 p.m..Meanwhile, officials in St. Louis County have sent certified letters to three dozen bars and businesses ordering them to cease indoor service or face lawsuits or criminal charges.___ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Officials in Anchorage, Alaska, are imposing new pandemic restrictions for December that will prohibit bars and restaurants from offering indoor service, require employers to allow people to work from home if possible and limit many businesses to 25% capacity.Acting Mayor Austin Quinn-Davidson said Wednesday that the rules are needed to deal with increasing coronavirus infections in Anchorage, which is Alaska’s biggest city. The rules take effect Tuesday and run through Jan. 1.As of Wednesday, the city has recorded 15,100 coronavirus cases. Of those, 2,115 were reported in the last week. The city has had 66 deaths from COVID.19.___NEW YORK — A new government report says the U.S. is still missing nearly eight coronavirus infections for every one counted.By the end of September, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calculates that as many as 53 million Americans had been infected. That is just under eight times the confirmed cases reported at the time.Previously, the CDC estimated that one of every 10 infections were being missed.The latest CDC calculation is meant to give a more accurate picture of how many people actually have caught the virus since the pandemic began. Of the 53 million estimated infections, the CDC says about 45 million were sick at some point and about 2.4 million were hospitalized.___SALEM, Oregon — Oregon’s governor says bars and restaurants can reopen for limited outdoor service next week but many restrictions will remain in place until a vaccine against the coronavirus is widely available.In making the announcement Wednesday, Gov. Kate Brown urged Oregonians to stay safe during the Thanksgiving holiday and protect others by not ignoring safety protocols, like wearing masks and limiting personal contacts.The revamped pandemic restrictions take effect when the current two-week “freeze” expires Dec. 3. Currently, only take-out restaurant service is allowed. The restaurant industry pushed hard against the restrictions as several eateries closed for good and others were at risk of doing so.___CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon says he has tested positive for the coronavirus, but has only minor symptoms.Gordon said Wednesday that he plans to continue working remotely.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends people who test positive for the virus isolate themselves for 10 days.Gordon said on Nov. 13 that Wyoming residents need to be more responsible about preventing the spread of the coronavirus. In his words, “We’ve relied on people to be responsible, and they’re being irresponsible,” Gordon joins nearly 26,700 Wyoming residents who have tested positive.___OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma State Department of Health announced Wednesday that public schools will be allowed to offer in-school quarantines for students exposed to the virus.Schools in Mustang became the first in the state to adopt the policy, the department said.Effective from Nov. 30 through Dec. 23, the policy would allow students to quarantine in school.Interim State Epidemiologist Dr. Jared Taylor said students who tested positive for COVID-19 and students who had interactions with the infected student would have previously moved to distance learning for 14 days.Under the new policy, students who are quarantined will be allowed to go to school to take part in virtual classes, but will be kept out of individual classrooms in buildings such as gyms or an auditorium where they would be socially distanced and must wear masks.___SAN JOSE, Calif. — Officials in Santa Clara County said they will ramp up enforcement of state health orders during the holiday weekend to make sure businesses follow the permitted capacity, employees and customers wear masks at all times and social distance guidelines are being followed.With Thanksgiving week kicking off the holiday shopping season, compliance officers will fan out throughout the Silicon Valley county starting Thursday and at least through Sunday with the help of firefighters who normally enforce capacity issues for fire codes. They will be able to issue fines on the spot starting at $250.Until now, most California counties have taken an education approach, issuing warnings instead of fines.But the county recorded its highest individual new case count for a day and has only 68 available ICU beds, testing officer Dr. Marty Fenstersheib said Wednesday, surpassing any levels hit during the peak of the summer surge.“We are really, really concerned,” Fenstersheib said. “All of the metrics that we have been following, that have done well in previous months, are now going up very steeply.”___SALT LAKE CITY — Physicians in Utah are warning that Thanksgiving could become a major super spreader event for COVID-19 transmission if people don’t follow public health guidelines.An increased number of hospitalizations across the state has prompted doctors and public health officials to advise against attending Thanksgiving gatherings with people outside their immediate households.On Wednesday, an infectious disease specialist said COVID-19 cases could further overwhelm a strained healthcare system if people do not follow this guidance. His pleas comes just days after Republican Gov. Gary Herbert said he would not extend his previous order requiring people to limit social gatherings to people in their home.In Utah, 1 in 136 people were diagnosed with COVID-19 over the past week and the state is ranked tenth in the country for new cases per capita, according to data from Johns Hopkins.There have been over 182,000 reported virus cases in Utah and more than 800 known deaths related to the virus, according to state data.The Associated Press

Mulberry has cheered a “strong” reaction to the relaunch of its Alexa bag, as the firm showed sales have been hurt by the pandemic but were improving ahead of the current lockdown. The accessories firm, led by Thierry Andretta, has seen trade suffer due to lockdowns, with stores shut for months earlier this year, and branches in England that closed in early November only being allowed to reopen next week. In the first half Mulberry recorded a adjusted pre-tax loss of £1.9 million, compared to a £10.1 million profit a year earlier.

Dublin, Nov. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Tetrahydrofuran (THF) Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2020-2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The market for tetrahydrofuran is expected to register a CAGR of 6% globally during the forecast period. Growing demand for spandex from the textile industry and increasing demand for polyvinyl chloride manufacturing are driving the market. On the flip side, the availability of close substitutes and hazardous nature (highly flammable and health hazard) of THF are hindering the growth of the market. The tetrahydrofuran market is expected to grow during the forecast period, owing to the increasing demand for polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG). The Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market across the world, with the largest consumption from countries, such as China, India, and Japan. Key Market Trends Growing Demand for Polytetramethylene Ether Glycol (PTMEG) Tetrahydrofuran (THF) is widely used for polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG) manufacturing, which is used as a base chemical in the manufacturing of polyurethanes, and it is expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. * Spandex is a synthetic fabric that is composed of 85% polyurethane by weight. Spandex is a segmented polymer that contains alternating rigid and flexible segments of polyurethane. * Due to the superior characteristics of spandex, it is used widely in women's clothing, swimsuits, casual wear, and sports fabrics to provide more comfort and elasticity. It has good strength, high uniformity, and high abrasion resistance. * More than 65% of the tetrahydrofuran produced globally is used in the manufacturing of PTMEG, which is used mainly in the production of spandex and other polyurethanes. The increasing demand for spandex in the textile industry is expected to drive the market for tetrahydrofuran during the forecast period.The Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market The Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market for tetrahydrofuran during the forecast period, due to an increase in demand from countries, like China, India, and Japan. * The growing textile industry in emerging economies, like China and India, is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. According to the National Development and Reform Commission, China's domestic sales of apparel and knitwear stood at around USD 172.4 billion for the first 11 months of 2019, representing growth of about 3% year-on-year over the same time period in 2018. * Apart from the textile industry, THF is mainly used as a solvent in various processes in pharmaceutical industries, along with minor applications being from paints and coatings, adhesives, and magnetic tapes. * In the pharmaceutical industry, THF is used to synthesize cough serum, rifamycin, progesterone, and other hormone drugs and as a reaction medium in the Grignard synthesis process. India's pharmaceutical industry occupies a 20% share in global supply by volume, and it is placed third worldwide for the production by volume. The increasing demand and expansion of pharmaceutical industries are expected to drive the market for THF. * The aforementioned factors, coupled with government support, are contributing to the increasing demand for tetrahydrofuran (THF) market in Asia-Pacific during the forecast period.Competitive Landscape The global tetrahydrofuran (THF) market is partially fragmented with players accounting for a marginal share of the market. Few companies include Ashland, BASF SE, DCC, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, and Banner Chemicals Limited.

From the press tribune above the Estadio Azteca field it was impossible to discern the trickery Diego Maradona had performed.From the same location, it was impossible not to marvel at the brilliant manoeuvrability that Maradona also performed.That was the paradox presented by Maradona, the great Argentine player who died Wednesday at age 60. He could be magical in positive and negative ways.His most famous — and infamous — game came against England at the then-majestic stadium in Mexico City, a World Cup quarterfinal in 1986. The lure of being there was as strong for media members as it was for the 100,000 or so fans on hand. Not since Pele in his prime had there been such a must-see footballer on such a superlative stage.Adding to the electric atmosphere were the legions of Argentina fans in their blue-and-white striped jerseys, waving their flags and chanting tributes to “El Gran Diego.” There even were some shouts of “El Dios Diego.”If only they truly knew.Soccer at its highest level is a game of intrigue, 11 players on each side weaving a tapestry. The wise fan does not concentrate on the ball the way hockey followers will watch the puck. Rather, you focus on the movement of the players as a group, the patterns and the probing, and eventually the penetrating attacks.But not when Maradona was in his prime. You watched No. 10 for Argentina. Always.Taking your eyes off Maradona was tantamount to going to the concession stand in the middle of the match.And on that June day, in what would become the foundation of his legacy, Maradona delivered.Following a goalless first half, Maradona struck in the 51st minute with a powerful header. Or did he?A misplay by an England defender sent the ball high and toward the net, from which keeper Peter Shilton — one of the best ever — sprinted to clear it. The diminutive Maradona beat him with a leap and a swivel of the noggin. Or, more accurately, as video replays indicate today, a punch with his left hand from the side of his head.GOAL!!!!!!!!! (the only way to describe such scores, of course).From the press area, all seemed fair. To the English players and manager, it was a farce — a blatant breaking of the rules. To the Argentines, it was Diego doing his thing.No matter, because the goal stood for a 1-0 lead. In fact, to most of us covering the game, the furor seemed misplaced.Had the match ended with that score, Maradona's reputation everywhere but among his countrymen might have been scarred forever. But then came something so spectacular yet refined, so wild yet controlled, that even the hardened folks in the press box felt like cheering.And some did.Maradona basically weaved around and through half of the England team, starting from just his side of midfield, and finishing his slalom run with a short poke into the net as he fell.As the English telly announcer exclaimed, “ There was no doubt about that one.”And no doubt it would be recalled globally on the same level as Americans remember Bobby Thomson's home run or the Immaculate Reception.Watching from on high — no, not “Hand of God” on high — every reporter knew there was no way of truly describing this goal. No way of giving it justice with words.Certainly we all would try, fruitless as it might be. None of us, naturally, could match the skill and creativity — the sheer magnificence — conjured up by Maradona that afternoon.Pele famously and appropriately dubbed soccer "O Jogo Bonito’' (The Beautiful Game). That phrase fit the grace and graciousness of the Brazilian, and the way he played. Pele was a cheetah and a gazelle. If Pele's football was a musical genre, try jazz.Maradona was a bull, a charge-ahead locomotive. His music would have been heavy metal.Yet on that summer day under a brilliant sky in Mexico City, Maradona showed us he had some of the virtuoso in him. And some impish sorcery, too.Barry Wilner, The Associated Press
Mick Cronin might not be so eager to bring UCLA back to San Diego State anytime soon after his short-handed Bruins were given a rude welcome by the deep, disruptive Aztecs coached by old friend Brian Dutcher. Matt Mitchell and Jordan Schakel scored 15 points apiece and SDSU used a suffocating defense and 3-point shots to humble 22nd-ranked UCLA 73-58 on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams.

Dublin, Nov. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Thermic Fluid Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The market for thermic fluid is expected to register a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. The major factor driving the growth of the market is the increasing demand from the oil and gas industry, where thermic fluids are used extensively to carry out the operations. Increasing use in concentrated solar power is anticipated to further propel the thermic fluid market. On the flip side, volatility in the raw material prices and unfavorable conditions arising due to the COVID-19 outbreak are restricting the growth of the market. The oil and gas industry makes use of thermic fluids to carry out services, such as oil and gas processing, natural gas purification, and asphalt processing and storage, etc., effectively. The Middle East is projected to have the largest market share of thermic fluids, owing to the enormous oil reserves in the region, which results in the oil and gas industry booming in the region and consequently the market studied. Key Market Trends Extensive Demand from the Oil and Gas Sector The extensive use of thermic fluid in the oil and gas industry is increasing incessantly to cater to the rising energy demand. * The oil and gas industry carries out major operations, such as oil and gas processing, natural gas purification, refining, gas to liquid, asphalt processing and storage, etc., with the use of thermal fluid. * Everyday worldwide interest for the raw petroleum (counting biofuels) is on the ascent, and it is forecasted to cross 100 million barrels per day mark by the end of 2020. * The prospectus for the future development of the oil and gas business recommends that oil exploration will proceed to develop in long term, and at the same time, the utilization of thermic fluids. Moreover, more penetration must be done per unit of oil, as hydrocarbon discoveries become less productive with time. * All the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the thermic fluid market during the forecast period.The Middle East to be the Largest Market for Thermic Fluid The Middle Eastern region holds a prominent share in the thermic fluid market globally, because of the presence of the main oil-creating countries of the world, like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates. * It was assessed that among OPEC's total oil holds, the greater part is held by the Middle Eastern countries. The proven oil reserves of the region were valued at about 113.2 billion metric ton. * Furthermore, it is estimated that the Middle East creates around 33% of the total world's oil production, which was approximately 32 million barrels of oil each day in 2019. * The global oil demand is evaluated to be around 99 million barrels each day. This may fuel the demand from the oil and gas business of the Middle Eastern nations, and thus, the utilization of thermic fluid in the industry. * Thus, the rising demand from various industries is expected to drive the market studied in the region during the forecast period.Competitive Landscape The thermic fluid market is partially fragmented. Some of the players in the market include Eastman Chemical Company, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Royal Dutch Shell PLC, HP Lubricants, and BP.
