The price of gas is rising again
The price is mainly affected by the sharp economic recovery, low inventories and, last but not least, the reactions of the Russian energy giant. Most recently, Russia’s Gazprom has refused to reserve more pipeline capacity through Ukraine and Poland to transport gas to Europe in the first three quarters of next year. Putin is awaiting approval for the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, saying Gazprom would supply more natural gas to the EU when it fills its own reserves.
IPO of the digital bank
The British digital bank Starling, whose investors are Goldman Sachs, Fidelity Investments and the Qatari Investment Fund, expects to enter the stock exchange in at least two years. The bank currently has millions of users only virtually, through the application and has no physical branches, similar to its competitor Revolut. The IPO should take place in London and the company would join a series of high-profile shares of the technology sector in Britain.
The social network cancels face recognition
Facebook has said it will end their face recognition project. The use of this system has provoked negative reactions and concerns not only among users but also “attracted” the regulators. Facebook is committed to no longer automatically recognizing people’s faces in photos or videos with this system. As a result of this change, it will remove more than 1 billion individual face recognition templates.
