German unemployment fell unexpectedly in November despite a partial lockdown to contain a second wave of coronavirus infections in Europe's largest economy, data showed on Tuesday.

The euro was close to a three-month high as the U.S. dollar on expectations of more monetary stimulus from the United States and a strengthening recovery elsewhere that pushed up riskier currencies. One of the currencies to watch was the New Zealand dollar, which was on course to reach its highest since June 2018. Worries about rising coronavirus cases have not provided the dollar with much support, as speculation grows that the Federal Reserve will act to support the economy through a tough winter before vaccinations become available.

Volkswagen, the world's largest vehicle maker by sales, risked a leadership crisis on Tuesday after Chief Executive Herbert Diess forced a vote of confidence in his reform efforts by asking for an early contract extension. The multi-brand car and truck maker is convening its Executive Committee to discuss Diess's demand for the contract extension, more than a year before his current term comes to an end in 2023, three sources told Reuters on Monday. The Austrian manager, who defected from BMW in 2015, and helped VW to reform after its diesel scandal with a 73 billion euro ($87 billion) electric vehicle investment plan, has grown frustrated with German labour leaders blocking cost cuts.

Remote cardiac monitoring service Zio XT has been evaluated and positively recommended by NICESAN FRANCISCO and UNITED KINGDOM, Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iRhythm Technologies (NASDAQ: IRTC), a leading digital health care solutions company focused on the advancement of cardiac care, today announced it is the first technology to pass through a new digital health tech pilot, resulting in a successful recommendation for adoption from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). iRhythm’s Zio XT Service – a patient-friendly ambulatory cardiac monitor supported by deep learning algorithms – has been assessed as part of NICE’s first pilot project to evaluate digital health technologies. Zio XT has been positively recommended by NICE as an option for people with suspected cardiac arrhythmias who would benefit from ECG monitoring for longer than 24 hours.Published today, the guidance concluded that Zio XT is convenient and easy to wear, with greater patient compliance and improved diagnostic yield (a measure of how many people with cardiac arrhythmias are diagnosed) compared with standard 24-hour Holter monitoring. Clinical evidence showed that patients preferred Zio XT compared to current monitoring practice in the NHS, which usually involves wearing a continuous ECG monitor, such as the 24-hour Holter monitor. Estimates also suggest that using Zio XT is likely to be cost saving, or cost the same as using 24-hour Holter monitoring.Commenting on the news, Justin Hall, GM and VP EMEA at iRhythm said, “We are delighted that Zio has received such positive guidance from NICE in this first of its kind evaluation, especially at such a critical time. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have seen a number of cardiac patients avoiding hospitals and suffering in silence, even when experiencing serious conditions such as strokes. This has led to a backlog of patients requiring care, putting additional pressure on medical staff and services.”“Fortunately, services like Zio can help ease this backlog, offering clinically-validated services remotely. Patients are not required to expose themselves to high-risk hospital environments, while staff can still offer the same continued level of care. It’s critical, therefore, that patients have access to these technologies and for clinicians to be able to implement them quickly and easily.”The guidance, which evaluates new, innovative medical devices and diagnostics, aims to help people in the NHS make efficient, cost-effective and consistent decisions about adopting new medical technologies. A positive NICE Medical Technologies Guidance opens the door for future support of the Zio service through the MedTech Funding Mandate, which aims to help accelerate the uptake of proven affordable innovations as part of the NHS Long Term Plan.iRhythm’s positive recommendation from the NICE digital health pilot builds on the company’s recent win of the UK government’s AI in Health and Care Award, in which iRhythm will utilise the funding to evaluate its Zio service in selected NHS sites across the UK. Throughout the three-year programme, clinical, pathway and economic outcomes will be monitored and evaluated in order to inform any future commissioning decisions around the adoption of Zio within the NHS.About iRhythm Technologies, Inc.iRhythm is a leading digital health care company redefining the way cardiac arrhythmias are clinically diagnosed. The company combines wearable biosensor devices worn for up to 14 days and cloud-based data analytics with powerful proprietary algorithms that distil data from millions of heartbeats into clinically actionable information. The company believes improvements in arrhythmia detection and characterization have the potential to change clinical management of patients.Media Contacts: Ellie Stansfield Hotwire for iRhythm Technologies firstname.lastname@example.orgSaige Smith HighwirePR for iRhythm Technologies email@example.comInvestor Relations Contact: Leigh Salvo Gilmartin Group firstname.lastname@example.org

Anton Ferdinand is describing what it was like to be booed wherever he went in the aftermath of the extraordinary series of events over 2011 and 2012 that began with him and John Terry, and an allegation of racial abuse that would come to define so many careers in the game. As a young defender with a promising career he had enjoyed the hostility of rival fans, Ferdinand explains as we chat over a Zoom call this week, but after the events of Oct 23, 2011 at Loftus Road the tenor changed. “Normally when you get booed it’s like, ‘Wicked, this is going to get me up for it even more’, I had times when I have thought, ‘Ok I am going to show you guys’. And I still had that in the games.” And then he pauses, and explains how life changed after that infamous game against Chelsea. “It was more than when I was walking in from the coach to the stadium and hearing what people were saying around that time. There were all sorts of things. Anything to do with the incident. Whether it was racial abuse from fans, the jeers and the booing was always there. It was a constant noise that I would hear. “When I was playing I was just in the game. It fires you up. There is something about when you are just walking into the stadium it hits you differently. You know? Your job hasn’t started yet. Once the job starts you’re in a different frame of mind. I was made to feel it was my fault. That is another part of the ripple effect that people don’t understand. They probably thought they were just trying to get me off my game. It harmed me and I didn’t know it at the time. I am a human being. I have feelings. I might give out the bravado but when it happens time and again it is going to make you question yourself. You ask, ‘Is it really my fault?’” As for the abuse on social media, he says it was never-ending. “When you are in your house is when you relax but when I was in my house I was still seeing and reading the abuse I was getting. It never left me.” Nine years on from the day that Terry was alleged to have called Ferdinand a “f------ black c---“ in that game between Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea, Ferdinand has at last broken his silence on the effect on him. Viewed through the lens of 2020 and the Black Lives Matter movement the dynamic around what happened over those 12 months and then in the years that followed feels different. It was a saga that brought down an England manager, saw Terry cleared in court of racially abusing Ferdinand before the Football Association eventually found him guilty on a lower burden of proof. In the tumult Ferdinand himself had been largely forgotten – until now.
