SAO PAULO – The chief executive of Brazil’s state-run oil company Petrobras resigned on Monday in the face of mounting pressure from politicians after the firm announced a fuel price hike last week, adding to inflation concerns in an election year.

It also ruled the mining concessions violated indigenous communities’ right to a healthy environment, based on Ecuador’s “rights of nature” laws that protect rivers and ecosystems and that were enshrined in its constitution in 2008.

“Increased activity and abundance of lianas can have profound impacts on the structure and function of tropical rainforests, which in turn affects the animals that depend on them,” Professor Laurance says.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the company is formally known, said in a securities filing that Chief Executive Jose Mauro Coelho had resigned on Monday morning and an interim CEO would now be appointed for the board’s consideration.

Mamaearth was co-founded by Varun Alagh, a former Hindustan Unilever executive, and his wife Ghazal. With the brand endorsed by popular Bollywood celebrities, the duo has cashed in on growing e-commerce adoption in India by offering its products on platforms such as Amazon and Walmart’s Flipkart.

He says the study underlines the need for urgent climate action but also limiting rainforest disturbance, something lianas thrive on because its easier for them to reach the upper canopy where they reproduce.

SAO PAULO – The boat used by killed British journalist Dom Phillips and Brazilian indigenous expert Bruno Pereira to travel to Brazil’s Amazon was found on Sunday evening, authorities said in a statement.

When we tested them side-by-side last year, Google’s Nest Mini boasted slightly superior Book Review sound to the third-gen Echo Dot, and this time around, the new Dot just edges past the Mini. If you’re listening to acoustic music, such as Bon Iver’s “Re: Stacks,” at 50% volume, the speaker boasts warm tones, solid track distinction and good balance.

SANTIAGO – None of Chile’s four former living presidents will attend July’s ceremonial handover of the proposed new constitution to President Gabriel Boric, ahead of a referendum in September which will determine its implementation.

They don’t realize money doesn’t last forever,” said Huamoni, 41, who has led NAWE for 15 years and is studying for a law degree. They come to rely on oil. People see fast money. “With oil comes a loss of identity.

“The oil companies speak to two or three families at a time and offer them money to get permission to enter their lands. There are always families who want to negotiate. They don’t see the life they will suffer later,” Nihua said.

We’re protecting our territory and rivers from people who want to cause damage,” said the 26-year-old, who belongs to Ecuador’s first uniformed and tech-backed indigenous guard, set up by the A’i Cofan under their own laws in the northern rainforest village of Sinangoe. “We monitor who’s entering our territory without our permission.

“The ruling set a precedent,” said Jorge Acero, a lawyer with Amazon Frontlines, an advocacy group supporting the Cofan. “It can be applied to any indigenous group, and judges across the region are taking note.”

He played only 16 snaps last season for the now-Washington Commanders, his ninth NFL team. He completed 3 of 6 passes for 13 yards before suffering a hip subluxation in the second quarter of the season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

The new Dot doesn’t even include Amazon Sidewalk support — one of the most interesting connectivity features of the new Echo smart speaker and the upcoming Echo Show 10. Where Amazon appears to be innovating now is not in the standard Dot, but rather in its alternatives, the Dot with Clock and the Kids Edition Dot. Dot, Dot, Dot… My disappointment in the new Echo Dot is more general than acute: not every new generation can revitalize a device (as the third-gen full-size Echo demonstrated), but a little more creativity would be nice to see.

MUMBAI, June 21 (Reuters) – Sequoia Capital-backed Indian skincare startup Mamaearth is in talks to raise at least $300 million in a planned IPO next year and is seeking a valuation of around $3 billion, three people with direct knowledge of the company’s plans told Reuters.

CEO Alagh told the Business Standard newspaper in January that 70% of Mamaearth’s sales come from online platforms, but it was targetting a bigger offline presence and aiming to reach 40,000 retail outlets in 100 cities this year.

One equity research analyst, however, said the success of Mamaearth’s IPO could hinge on how it plans to rapidly expand into offline sales.

Most Indians still go to retail outlets to shop, with e-commerce accounting for just 5-6% of spending. The number of online shoppers for beauty products is also projected to rise to 135 million from 25 million during that period, it added.

A lack of clear laws and guidelines about how indigenous communities should participate in decisions made about what happens on their lands is often a key source of conflict between them, the government and extractive companies.
