KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — A team of 10 Nepalese climbers who became the first to scale the world’s second-highest peak during the harsh winter season have received a hero’s welcome on return home to Nepal. Mountaineers, supporters, friends and family lined the Kathmandu airport on Tuesday to greet the climbers with garlands and cheers as a police band played tunes. They were then driven around city in open trucks. The winter climb marks another achievement for Nepalese climbers who for decades worked as porters and guides for foreign mountaineers but now are setting their own records and running expeditions on the highest peaks. K2 had remained the last peak above 8,000 meters (26,240 feet) in the world that was yet to be climbed in the winter.
PRAGUE (AP) — Budvar, the Czech brewer that has been in a long legal dispute with U.S. giant Anheuser-Busch over use of the “Budweiser” brand, increased output to a record last year, when the pandemic saw people drink less in bars and more at home. The brewer says its output rose 3% to 1.73 million hectoliters, or 45.7 million gallons. Budvar sells its beer in some 80 countries and Germany, one of its key markets, grew particularly strongly in 2020. Demand for its beer in tanks and barrels declined last year as bars and restaurants were closed for a long time but Budvar was able to meet rising demand for bottled beer.
NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is acknowledging that Black and Latino New Yorkers are receiving COVID-19 vaccines at far lower rates than white or Asian residents. Data released by the city’s health department shows that 48% of the city residents who have gotten at least one vaccine dose are white. That’s far higher than the roughly one-third the city’s population that is non-Hispanic white. Just 11% of vaccine doses administered to New York City residents went to Black people and 15% to Latinos. The vaccine numbers are incomplete because about 40% of people who have been vaccinated in the city haven’t provided demographic information. Still, the figures mirror vaccination data from other cities and states.
BERLIN (AP) — Energy technology company Siemens Energy says it plans to shed 7,800 jobs worldwide by 2025 as part of a drive to cut costs. The company, which was spun off last year by German industrial conglomerate Siemens AG, currently has more than 90,000 employees around the world. It said Tuesday that “optimized processes, leaner structures, the reduction of overcapacities and portfolio adjustments” will result in some 7,800 jobs going in its gas and power segment, around three-quarters of them in management, administration and sales. The plans call for 3,000 jobs to be cut in Germany, 1,700 in the United States and 3,100 at other locations worldwide.
