An undated handout photo received from the ARC Centre of Excellence Coral Reef Studies on October 14, 2020 shows a damaged part of the Great Barrier Reef – the vast World Heritage-listed reef off Australia’s northeastern coast.

The bleaching of corals off Australia’s northeastern coast due to ocean warming and acidification is happening across all species and to specimens of all ages, according to a new study that analyzed coral demographics. The study, led by Andy Dietzel at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies in Australia, confirmed the Great Barrier Reef lost half its corals between 1995 and 2017.

“We measured changes in colony sizes because population studies are important for understanding demography and the corals’ capacity to

3 recovery killers that will stymie your post-COVID comeback

By Dr. Evans Baiya6 minute Read

The business world has been significantly disrupted by the pandemic. During situations of macro disruption, most people look for ways to first survive and eventually emerge from the circumstances stronger and better. As they do this, most leaders attempt to re-create past success—to go back to what life and business were like pre-disruption. 

Few people look forward with excitement to the unpredictable, unknown future while living through the dissonance caused by ongoing disruptions. Yet because of what we have collectively experienced, there is no going back to the old state of things. Business environments are changing constantly. True business recovery is forward moving, embracing today’s reality and finding ways to thrive within it. The best measure of successful negotiation of disruption is how strongly you recover.

There are plenty of approaches to business recovery, but the key to success is avoiding the obstacles

Startups have been at the heart of venture capital (VC) funding for the past few years, and expectations were high at the start of 2020 but the entrepreneurial and investment ecosystem has not been spared by the coronavirus pandemic. In recent years, despite an environment of uncertainty and political-economic tension, great progress has been made in the venture capital space.

Startups in particularly hard-hit industries have found themselves at risk in these uncertain times as sales have softened and private fundraisings have proved more challenging. Founders had to look hard at their businesses, including their cash runways, forecasts, capex and assumptions, in order to weather the storm.

Argentina Expands Tech Companies’ Incentives Amid Recovery Push

Argentina Bonds Fall With Tighter Foreign-Exchange Controls

Photographer: Erica Canepa/Bloomberg

Argentina is expanding benefits to its burgeoning tech sector in an effort to boost much-needed foreign investment and exports, supporting a resilient industry that’s grown amid a severe, three-year recession.

Both chambers of congress recently approved a technology bill that provides tax incentives for the next decade to start-ups and industry giants that train and hire workers. It’s one of very few bills with long-term economic scope to make it through Argentina’s deeply divided congress this year.

“There’s absolute agreement among all political parties about the relevance of this sector,” Production Minister Matias Kulfas told journalists Friday, estimating the bill over 10 years would nearly double employment and increase tech service exports by an additional $4 billion. “The pandemic is speeding up digital priorities, and we have to see it as an opportunity to strengthen foreign investment.”

Samsung Elec profit likely at 2-year high after Huawei chip orders, phone recovery

By Joyce Lee and Hyunjoo Jin

SEOUL (Reuters) – Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s third-quarter profit likely jumped 58% to its highest in two years, beating estimates from analysts who pinned the rise on smartphone sales recovery and a rush order of chips from Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.

The South Korean tech giant said on Thursday operating profit was likely 12.3 trillion won ($10.6 billion) for the three months ended September. That compared with a Refinitiv SmartEstimate of 10.5 trillion won and would be the highest since the 17.57 trillion won of the third quarter of 2018.

Revenue likely rose 6% from the same period a year earlier to 66 trillion won, the company said.

Samsung released only limited data in Thursday’s regulatory filing ahead of the release of detailed earnings figures later this month.

“It seems Huawei’s impact on Samsung’s chip business was bigger than the market expected, and there

Colombia pins recovery hopes on technology not oil

For the past two decades, oil has fuelled Colombia’s economic growth, one of the strongest in Latin America. 

But the country’s reserves could run dry in six years. While there is much potential in unconventional reserves, the courts have imposed a moratorium on fracking in Colombia, which means that oil is currently off limits. 

Colombia must look for other sources of revenue to recover from the economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic. But the government has other options for boosting the economy. It says it will bank its recovery on three “pillars” with the aim of pushing GDP to grow by 6 per cent next year (Capital Economics forecasts that GDP will fall 7.5 per cent in Colombia this year and bounce back by 5 per cent next year). 

The first is renewable energy. Colombia is rich in renewable resources. It receives regular sunlight all year round. La Guajira, a
