The venue was previously called KeyArena and is in the midst of a major renovation. Companies typically pay millions to name stadiums after themselves. But Amazon said its name and logo won’t appear outside the stadium. A rendering for the arena, set to open next year, has Climate Pledge at the...

    The Authority of the UK Competition and Markets (CMA) has decided to provisionally authorize the Amazon’s entry into the capital of the food delivery company Deliveroo, of which it would control 16% by virtue of the operation carried out in May 2019, considering that the transaction is not likely to cause a substantial impairment of competition in the British market. Last April, the CMA had already given the green light to Amazon’s investment in Deliveroo, considering that without Amazon’s support it could be forced to abandon the market as a result of deteriorating conditions following the Covid-19 pandemic, which would have been worse for the competition. However, the considerable improvement in Deliveroo’s financial position observed by the regulator suggests that...

    Amazon is committing $2 billion to companies developing clean energy technology with its Climate Pledge Fund, the company announced Tuesday. The fund is one facet of Amazon’s Climate Pledge, which aims to eliminate the company’s net carbon emissions by 2040. While it’s perhaps another step in the right direction, the fund comes after years of criticism for Amazon’s less-than-sterling environmental track record. The Climate Pledge Fund will invest in companies of all sizes and in multiple industries, including “transportation and logistics; energy generation, storage, and utilization; manufacturing and materials; circular economy; and food and agriculture,” Amazon said in a statement. Amazon hasn’t provided a timeline for selecting beneficiaries or distributing funds.

    A 13-year-old 'Amazon warrior' who was buried along with her weapons 2,600 years ago has finally been identified as female 30 years after being unearthed in Siberia. The remains of the warrior — who had a wart on her face — were found at Saryg-Bulun, in the Tuva republic, in 1988 and assumed to have belonged to a young man. However, genetic analysis revealed that the partially-mummified corpse — which was wrapped in a fur coat — was nothing of the sort. According to experts, the 'stunning' revelation brings to mind ancient accounts of the skilled and ruthless young female warriors of the Scythian civilisation. These nomadic people — famed for their mastery of mounted warfare — arose in southern Siberia and...
