Black Iron (TSX: BKI) (OTC: BKIRF) (GR: BIN), a Canadian iron ore exploration and development company, is focused on securing financing and land to start construction of its low-cost Shymanivske iron ore project in the historically rich Kryvyi Rih region of Ukraine. An article discussing the company reads, “Black Iron has been pushing to begin construction at its Shymanivske project by the end of the year and is focused on raising capital to fund construction and securing essential land-surface rights for the central Ukraine site. The company recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Glencore, one of the world’s largest commodity traders, to make an investment toward funding construction of the project in exchange for securing the offtake of up to the full phase one planned annual production of four million tons. Additionally, the MOU outlines cooperation between Black Iron and Glencore to leverage their relationships to source the balance of funds required to construct the project. Debt finance discussions are ongoing with international financial institutions and Europe-based banks, which have shown interest in the projected robust economics of Black Iron’s project due to its low operating cost and construction capital intensity. . . . Solid progress is also being made to secure land that’s essential for construction of the processing plant, tailings and waste-rock stockpiles. On March 14, Black Iron announced that Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense has developed a plan to transfer the land being sought.”

Experimental surgery gains support as opioid deaths rise

May 20, 2019

SHANGHAI — Patient Number One is a thin man, with a scabby face and bouncy knees. His head, shaved in preparation for surgery, is wrapped in a clean, white cloth. Years of drug use cost him his wife, his money and his self-respect, before landing him in this drab yellow room at a Shanghai hospital, facing the surgeon who in 72 hours will drill two small holes in his skull and feed electrodes deep into his brain. The hope is that technology will extinguish his addiction, quite literally, with the flip of a switch. The treatment — deep brain stimulation...

May 20, 2019

SHANGHAI — The sound of doctors boring through his skull to feed electrodes deep into his brain made Yan tremble. "The drill was like bzzzzzzz," he later recalled. "The moment of drilling is the most terrible." Yan is a methamphetamine addict. The hope is that technology will extinguish his addiction — quite literally, with the flip of a switch.

Now, the first clinical trial of DBS for methamphetamine addiction is being conducted at Shanghai's Ruijin Hospital, along with trials for opioid addicts. Yan is...

May 20, 2019

SINGAPORE — Asian airlines are cutting routes, revamping their schedules and leasing extra aircraft to fill gaps left by the grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8s after deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people. So far, regional carriers have managed to avoid major disruptions, but analysts expect that idling the Max 8s, a fuel-efficient update of Boeing's popular 737, will crimp growth plans in the near future. As investigations into the crashes continue, Boeing anticipates a $1 billion increase in costs related to the 737 Max, including fixing software implicated in the disasters, adding pilot training and compensating...
