Workers in Mauritius on Tuesday began pumping 130 tons of fuel from a Chinese fishing vessel that ran aground on a coral reef on the Indian Ocean island's west coast. The grounded ship has spilled a small amount of fuel into the ocean, but its hull remains intact, according to the local newspaper, L'Express. Police helicopters are helping to remove the diesel fuel and oil lubricant because the ship is stranded in shallow waters inaccessible to tugboats, the newspaper reported.

Right after the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, dozens of U.S. companies announced they would halt political donations to the 147 Republican lawmakers who voted to overturn Donald Trump’s presidential election loss. Two months later, there is little sign that the corporate revolt has done any real damage to Republican fundraising. If anything, the biggest backers of Trump’s false election-fraud narrative - such as Missouri Senator Josh Hawley and Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene - have been rewarded with a flood of grassroots donations, more than offsetting the loss of corporate money.
Over more than a century of the Federal Reserve's existence, the critical job of controlling the cost of money and the availability of credit has fallen mostly to white men, even though women and minorities have for decades made up a majority of the workforce in an increasingly diverse economy. Inside the Fed there is a move to change that, made more urgent in the wake of last year's pandemic downturn that hit women and people of color particularly hard. To that end the central bank is remaking an important part of its leadership structure - the 108 people who serve as directors at its regional banks - to look more like America.

Tesla has seen more than a quarter of a trillion dollars wiped off its market value.Monday (March 8) saw its shares fall for a fifth straight day. Over the past month the total losses for the stock now stand at 277 billion dollars. That's taken a big bite out of founder Elon Musk's assets. By the end of last week, his wealth was down by 49 billion dollars - ending his brief reign as the world's richest man. The stock losses come as investors shift money to assets set to benefit from a global economic recovery. Over the last three weeks the tech-heavy Nasdaq index is down over 10%. One analyst told Reuters Tesla had looked clearly overvalued at its peaks of around 900 dollars, and predicted the decline had further to run. The broader auto industry has also been hit by a shortage of computer chips. Last month that forced Tesla to temporarily halt production at one plant in California.
On March 3, FedEx became the latest major company pledging to eliminate its greenhouse gas emissions. The company’s 2040 target to reach net-zero emissions comes with the promise of cash: $2 billion to buy electric vehicles, and $100 million to found a new climate solutions research center at Yale University. The strategy suggests the company is ready to charge into electric vehicles (EVs), but is still hedging its expectations of low-carbon alternatives for its fleet of 679 aircraft.

Unilever wants to become more inclusive.The maker of Dove soap will remove the word "normal" from its beauty and personal care products.And will stop digital alteration of body shapes and the skin colour of models used in its advertising.The London-based company is one of the top advertisers in the world.But the changes come as it tries to move beyond the backlash it has faced for some of its campaigns.Last year Unilever was pushed to rename its top selling skin-lightening brand in India as "Glow & Lovely" instead of "Fair & Lovely".And in 2017 the company faced a social media outcry over an advert for Dove body wash.It showed a black woman removing her top to reveal a white woman.More recently, an ad forced Unilever to pull all its TRESemmé haircare products from South African retail stores for 10 days due to a backlash.The company's president on Tuesday (March 9) told Reuters "we know that removing 'normal' alone will not fix the problem, but we believe it is an important step towards a more inclusive definition of beauty."Globally, more than a hundred Unilever brands will have the word "normal" removed.It'll be replaced with terms such as "grey hair" for shampoos or "moisture replenish" for skin creams by March next year.

Shortly after the military seized power, 55 foreign investors in Myanmar from Coca Cola to Facebook signed a statement committing to the country and employees there during developments of "deep concern". A month on, those pledges are being sorely tested with Myanmar's economy all but paralysed by massive anti-coup protests, widespread strikes and the junta's killing of dozens of protesters drawing calls for boycotts and sanctions. This week, fashion giant H&M, which has around 45 direct suppliers in Myanmar and is also a signatory to the statement, said it had paused new orders from the country due to transport and manufacturing disruptions.
Britain will see a resurgence in coronavirus cases at some point and can't bring deaths from COVID-19 down to zero even with a successful vaccine rollout, England's Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty said on Tuesday. Whitty said that caution in re-opening the economy would affect the size and the timing of a resurgence, but that vaccines would not be able to prevent all deaths from COVID. "All the modelling suggests there is going to be a further surge and that will find the people who either have not been vaccinated, or where the vaccine has not worked, and some of them will end up in hospital and sadly, some of them will go on to die," Whitty told lawmakers.
