Protecting specific areas can bring back wildlife and help reverse climate change: WWF-CanadaToronto, April 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian government has set a clear trajectory for the recovery of nature in Canada with a $4.1-billion budget commitment over five years. This investment includes targets of conserving over one million square kilometers of freshwater and land by 2025 and increasing marine protected areas. World Wildlife Fund Canada applauds this significant and crucial investment in nature. Protected areas, including Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas, have the potential to create space for Canada’s at-risk species to thrive and recover, as well as recognize and reinforce the rights of Indigenous people to steward their lands and waters, and absorb and store carbon from the atmosphere through protected vegetation and soils. However, not all protected areas are created with these criteria in mind. WWF-Canada’s 2019 Wildlife Protection Assessment found that existing terrestrial protected areas were not doing an adequate job of protecting habitat for species at risk, or habitats with high densities of soil carbon or forest biomass. With populations of species at risk of extinction continuing to decline in Canada, urgent actions are needed. WWF-Canada looks forward to working with the federal government as they strive to achieve their High Ambition Coalition for Nature and People commitment to protect 30 per cent of land and waters by 2030. Megan Leslie, president and CEO of WWF-Canada, said: “Nature has been a bright spot in a dark year, and we’re encouraged that the government understands the need for investment. Their commitments to biodiversity have been considerable, and with this budget they are providing the means to achieve them. This funding has the potential to protect habitats for species at risk of extinction, sequester and store carbon, and support Indigenous Guardian programs to steward their traditional territories. If implemented with species, climate and people in mind, I’m hopeful this budget will put us on the road to recovery.” The federal 2021 budget contains important commitments not only to freshwater and land protection, but also to natural infrastructure, marine protection, Pacific salmon conservation (which would also benefit the Salish Sea’s Endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales), ghost gear retrieval (to prevent entanglements that threaten marine mammals and sea turtles), and the Canada Water Agency (which could be used to help close the data gaps identified in WWF-Canada’s Watershed Reports and keep Canadian waters safe, clean and well-managed). About World Wildlife Fund Canada WWF-Canada creates solutions to the environmental challenges that matter most for Canadians. We work in places that are unique and ecologically important, so that nature, wildlife and people thrive together. Because we are all wildlife. For more information, visit wwf.ca.

New Delhi, Apr 20 (ANI): American multinational technology company Microsoft has been testing out a new performance mode for its cross-platform web browser, Edge, to improve RAM, CPU, and battery usage. According to The Verge, this new mode is currently available to some testers who use the Microsoft Edge Canary version of the browser, and others who can enable it manually with a flag. Microsoft said, "Performance mode helps you optimize speed, responsiveness, memory, CPU and battery usage. Performance improvements might vary depending on your individual specifications and browser habits." It's not clear exactly how the performance mode changes Edge, but it does affect the Sleeping Tabs feature. If users enable performance mode, then the Sleeping Tabs timeout will be locked to five minutes. Microsoft introduced sleeping tabs in Edge earlier this year, allowing the browser to automatically release system resources for inactive tabs when users have a number of tabs open, which helps new tabs run better or stop the browser from hogging memory and CPU resources in the background. Performance mode in Edge will likely prove most useful for laptop users, as browsers can often have a big impact on battery life. As per The Verge, Google has also been working on improving Chrome's performance and battery usage over the past six months. An update in November significantly improved CPU usage, and an update earlier this year improved RAM and GPU usage.

NEW YORK, April 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C., a nationally recognized shareholder rights law firm, reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors that purchased Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBIX) securities between November 9, 2020 and February 19, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors have until April 23, 2021 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit. Click here to participate in the action. On February 19, 2021, after the market closed, Ebix revealed that its independent auditor, RSM US LLP (“RSM”), resigned “as a result of being unable, despite repeated inquiries, to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence that would allow it to evaluate the business purpose of significant unusual transactions that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2020” related to the Company’s gift card business in India. RSM had also stated that there was a material weakness related to Ebix’s failure to design controls “over the gift or prepaid card revenue transaction cycle sufficient to prevent or detect a material misstatement.” In addition, Ebix and RSM disagreed over the accounting treatment of $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel in December 2020. On this news, the Company’s share price fell as much as $20.24, or approximately 40%, to close at $30.50 on February 22, 2021. The complaint, filed on February 22, 2021, alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that there was insufficient audit evidence to determine the business purpose of certain significant unusual transactions in Ebix’s gift card business in India during the fourth quarter of 2020; (2) that there was a material weakness in Company’s internal controls over the gift or prepaid revenue transaction cycle; and (3) that the Company’s independent auditor was reasonably likely to resign over disagreements with Ebix regarding $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. If you purchased Ebix securities during the Class Period and suffered a loss, are a long-term stockholder, have information, would like to learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Brandon Walker, Melissa Fortunato, or Marion Passmore by email at email@example.com, telephone at (212) 355-4648, or by filling out this contact form.
