    Uber's bike and scooter company appears to be expanding around the world ahead of its IPO· *Jump, the bike and scooter rental company owned by Uber, appears to be preparing to launch throughout Europe, as well as in more US cities, according to new job postings.*
    · *The company is looking to flesh out operations teams in Amsterdam, London, Miami, Dallas, and more. *
    · *CEO Ryan Rzepecki said to expect a "massive ramp-up in scale" next year during an interview with Business Insider earlier this month. *

    Jump, the bike and scooter rental company owned by Uber, appears to be gearing up for expansion into Europe and more American cities.

    New job postings on the company's website show an appetite for new markets in Europe, including Paris and London, as well as major US cities like New York, Miami and Dallas ahead of Uber's expected IPO next year.

    Jump's General Manager for Northwest Europe will oversee the company's operations and strategy in France, according to a role posted late Sunday. It follows a posting last week for a manager in London for the UK and Ireland. Currently, Jump is only active in Berlin in Europe, according to its website.

    In the United States, Jump is looking to hire a scooter operations manager in Sacramento, California, already a popular market for its bikes, according to a role posted Monday morning. In Miami and Dallas, meanwhile, Jump is looking for operations managers to grow the business it has been in talks to launch for months.

    Finally, in New York, where Jump bikes are already active in small, isolated areas of the Bronx and Staten Island, the company is looking to hire for two roles focused on expansions: an application specialist and a civic proposals manager. It's not clear if these jobs are focused on New York or on other cities — Jump maintains an office in the city, and the postings mention work in other expansion cities.

    A Jump spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.

    Earlier this month, Jump's CEO Ryan Rzepecki said he hoped to leverage Uber's massive network of cities where it has launched car rides to help with getting bikes and scooters in more cities.

    "When you couple the hardware expertise and relationships with cities that the Jump team brought," he said at Business Insider’s IGNITION conference, "and couple that with the operations we've got at Uber with the global teams on the business and policy side, it looks pretty exciting. You'll start to see a pretty massive ramp-up in scale over the next half."

    Aequus Pharmaceuticals Inc (TSXV:AQS; OTC:AQSZF) has signed a term sheet to allow for the exclusive license in Canada to market an undisclosed ophthalmic therapeutic with a European partner. The unnamed preservative-free therapeutic is a prescription product, which is already approved in certain countries in Europe. Having met with Health Canada, Aequus expects to submit an application for the therapy’s regulatory approval in Canada in the second half of next year. With the introduction of the license agreement, Aequus will maintain exclusive rights to the therapeutic in Canada and will have first access to future products from its unnamed European partner’s glaucoma-focused portfolio. READ: Aequus Pharmaceuticals has the right Rx to bring new drugs to the Canadian market Aequus estimates that the preservative-free therapeutic will see peak yearly sales between $4 million and $6 million and that its revenue for the company will exceed $35 million throughout the duration of the license. “This preservative-free product will be our third product offering in the ophthalmology field and we are confident we can continue to grow our portfolio of revenue generating ophthalmic products over the near and mid-term,” said  Doug Janzen, Aequus’s CEO, in a statement. “The deal construct is similar to our other co-promotion agreements with no upfront fees and a revenue split going forward,” Janzen added. Under the deal’s terms, the European partner will supply the therapeutic while Aequus will take responsibility for its marketing and distribution in Canada upon approval of the product by Health Canada. A specialty pharmaceutical company with a focus on bringing drugs to Canada, Aequus’s pipeline now includes several commercial products in the areas of ophthalmology and transplant.  Aequus plans to build on its Canadian platform via the launch of additional products that are either created internally or brought in through an acquisition or a license. Aequus shares held steady at C$0.16 in Canadian trading on Monday morning. Contact Ellen Kelleher at ellen@proactiveinvestors.com   Reported by Proactive Investors 55 minutes ago.

    Dublin, Dec. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Telecoms - Key Trends for 2019 - IoT, Data Management, 5G and AI" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.There are a number of interesting developments occurring which offer opportunities for the telecoms sector and the key trends for 2019 relate to IoT; M2M; Cloud Computing; Data Centres; 5G and Artificial Intelligence. This research explores the Key Telecoms Trends for 2019 and includes analyses, statistics, examples and trends.

    The wave of developments relating to smart cities, IoT, 5G, and overall data management is creating opportunities for those operating in the telecoms sector and related industries. In addition, we are beginning to see developments and applications relating to Artificial Intelligence finally take shape.

    For many years Artificial Intelligence (AI) was just a futuristic concept - but with recent progress in Machine Learning capabilities; the AI sector has been firmly pushed into the spotlight. In 2019 we will see this interest in Artificial Intelligence grow even further. As AI developments become more and more mainstream, driven by an intense interest in Smart Technologies - further applications and solutions will emerge.

    AI is quickly becoming viewed by the telecoms industry as a way to gain a competitive advantage. Already we are seeing those involved in the broader telecoms industry using the term AI to promote various applications and services. The term is beginning to be loosely applied for promotion purposes and is currently an industry buzz word. None the less; it is encouraging to see so much attention being paid to the AI area as it offers exciting potential for society and the economy in general.

    For the operators - many opportunities may lie in the applications, services and underlying infrastructure that solutions based on AI will require.

    The emerging 5G technology has attracted intense interest from the ICT industry and wider community due to its potential to increase opportunities for developments related to IoT including M2M communications, virtual reality, Artificial Intelligence and mission-critical communication. It is also expected to enhance overall capacity, speed and latency of the mobile networks.

    The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has research underway towards a global 5G standard. While it is expected that the full standardization process won't be completed until around early 2020 - we are beginning to see a clearer picture of what 5G entails and many countries are beginning to consider spectrum requirements and conduct trials and testing.

    Developments relating to the Internet of Things (IoT) and M2M are going to continue to gather pace in 2019. There are a number of technologies underpinning current IoT developments such as Wide Area Networks (WAN) and Low Power Wide Area (LPWA). One of the fastest growing M2M sectors is that relating to its use in the smartphones and the tablets market.

    Globally there is a rising need for data management and cloud services fuelled by the increasing volume of data usage. As a result, we are witnessing a growing number of data centres being built and there is further growth ahead in 2019. Developments relating to Smart Cities; IoT; M2M and Blockchain combined with the rising use of mobile data are all contributing to an enormous growth of data traffic - and there will be opportunities for the telecoms operators in the area of data management.

    *About IoT and M2M*

    Essentially, IoT and M2M describe the network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. Driven by several factors including the growth in the availability of Broadband Internet, which reduces the cost of connecting, and the related increase in Wi-Fi capabilities as well as sensors built into myriad technologies, this has been described as the "perfect storm" for the IoT. Almost any device with an on and off switch that can be connected to the Internet (and/or to each other) - anything from cell phones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices, cars, as well as machine components in the engine of a jet airplane or the drill of an oil rig. According to analyst firm Gartner, by 2020 there will be over 26 billion connected devices. Others think this figure could be too conservative by a factor of four.

    "We have every right to impose sharia here in Belgium, in the way we want." In a cafe in the city, the beating heart of Europe, Abdelhay Bakkali Tahiri - president of the Islam party and a candidate for municipal elections - tells the Eyes of War his proposals for a "fairer country". Along with him, there is also the vice-president of the movement, Talal Magri. When I enter the room they get up and hint to meet me, but once face-to-face, they do not reach out to shake my hand. A non-gesture that leaves me somewhat banned. But let's continue. Tahiri is a mayoral candidate, while Magri will present himself to the European elections in May. "We are not afraid to say that we want to impose sharia, because Sharia is 80% compatible with the Constitution", explains the president. "And all this has nothing to do with the Islamic State or cutting heads etc ... Sharia means unity and solidarity" he says. All and nothing, then. by Eugenia Fiore Bennati The party was born in 2012 and today has three elected representatives in different municipal councils of the European capital. In the presentation flyer, we read that to push some citizens to reunite and to found the movement was "the inhumanity" that is breathed in the Country: "The mentality of our leaders must evolve so that they accept that we can be both Belgians and Muslims at the same time". They want Belgium to become "the heart of the world" and not just of Europe. A country in which even Muslims can dictate rules. Their rules. Such as the fact of proposing the segregation of women on public transport. "Many women report harassment every day in buses and subways. This is why we believe that in order to help the most fragile women there must be this division." Reported by PRAVDA 15 minutes ago.

    Recently researchers and analysts of the RAND Corporation issued the report “Exploring Requirements for Effective Deterrence of Interstate Aggression.”The stated aim of this report is “to provide a fresh look at the subject in this context, with two primary purposes: to review established concepts about deterrence, and to provide a framework for evaluating the strength of deterrent relationships.”

    Chapter Four of the report is called “Deterring Russia in the Baltic Region” and presents analysis of security challenges in the Baltic States.This particular report is interesting by the fact that it acknowledges the minimal likelihood of Russia’s military aggression in the Baltics. It is more than strange when take into account the previous report that insisted on high level probability of Russian aggression. This time experts consider the situation to be less dangerous for the Baltic Region.According to the RAND Corporation analysts, Russia does not consider the Baltic States to be a strategically important region for itself.Therefore, despite the Kremlin’s desire to change the balance of forces in Europe in its favor, Russia does not consider “aggressive actions in the Baltic States as a tool of achieving these goals.”The US specialists have not found evidence of preparing the invasion of Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania, and Russia’s buildup of military power on their borders.They have made a conclusion that a more aggressive behavior of Russia towards the Baltic countries can occur in case of the anti-missile defense systems deployment on their territory.Instead, experts recommend that the US authorities treat Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania with understanding and condescension and even take into account that their eternal anti-Russian fears are associated with difficult common historical past. In other words, they advise to rather provide moral support.The report of the RAND Corporation cannot be treated only as a private opinion of a non-governmental organization. The findings of this center of expertise usually anticipate and justify strategic decisions made by the United States.Thus, two years ago RAND Corporation held a war game, which revealed that the Russian armed forces need only about 60 hours to occupy the Baltic States, and NATO allies would not physically have time to help Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. The analysis of the results of the war game was one of the rationales for deploying four multinational battalion-size battle groups on their territory.Today, the RAND Corporation concludes that Russia does not threaten the Baltic States, and military tensions over this region can arise only if the missile defense systems are deployed. It follows logically that the further militarization of the Baltic States is explosive and undesirable.So, the US elites as well as NATO do not want to deal with the Baltic States. They do not want to be distracted by countries that are of no importance for Russia, their main antagonist.The first recommendation made by the analysts of the RAND Corporation in the report is “to assess the motives of potential aggressors and ease security concerns. In Europe, this could include avoiding deployment of the most provocative U.S. systems in or near Eastern Europe, thinning Russian and Baltic forces, and working on a successor to the Conventional Forces in Europe Treaty.” (https://www.rand.org/pubs/research_reports/RR2451.html)In the case of military provocation in the Baltic Sea, similar to the one that occurred in the Kerch Strait, NATO, the US or the EU will not even provide the Baltic States with active diplomatic assistance, not to mention immediate military support. The RAND Corporation made this more than clear for the Baltic States.
