KARACHI: Shell Pakistan on Friday hosted a webinar to look at the global transformation taking place in the energy sector due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on demand.
Head of Shell Scenarios and Vice President of Global Business Environment Jeremy Bentham were the keynote speakers at the event entitled “The Energy Transformation Scenarios”. “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous negative impact on the global landscape. The energy industry and its systems are also facing unprecedented challenges due to this public health crisis, as demand for fuel is drastically reduced due to limited socio-economic activities, ”said Bentham.
He said there was a need for effective policies to promote organic fuels, “because by 2030, consumption of coal, oil and natural gas will almost be eliminated.”
Bentham highlighted three Energy Transformation Scenarios, which provide great insights into how the world is changing and how it helps to think about the future. The scenario consists of waves, islands and sky. Speaking about the impact of the energy industry on the global environment, he informed the audience that the process of global climate action is increasingly delayed, due to the slow de-carbonization of the Islands. “National security and environmental sustainability must remain our top priority during any type of trade, industrial activity or commercial collaboration. Developing countries that use organic fuels must work to ensure energy transformation, “he added.

Bushi skin is Genji clothing influenced by samurai, while Mousquetaire skin is Widowmaker’s French style appearance.During this period, there is no news of any other cosmetics, but these events usually provide some unique skins.
Since the archive went live in 2017, it has been regarded as the most important “Overwatch” lore resource. The uprising recorded Tracer’s first mission in the Overwatch team with Reinhardt, Mercy and Torbjörn. Retribution allows players to understand at a glance McCree’s life fighting Moira, Genji and Reaper before being defected by Blackwatch.
Even cosmetics and skin play a vital role in revealing the character’s backstory. Although they only revealed two skins, fans are still not satisfied because the trailer shows many skins that have already been used. However, there seems to be nothing new to mention this time.

edge According to reports, Epic has launched a new skin called Diamond Hanz, which is the most popular skin on the Internet. Diamond Hanz made its debut in Chapter 2 and Season 6, an interesting reimagining of the beloved Skunk.
For 1,200 V-Bucks, you can ask for yourself the durable and attractive Mr. Stones. He is ready to shake your world and make every effort to destroy life. “Fortnite” already has a collection of beautiful skins to celebrate pop culture, fruits, etc., but this kind of skin is particularly memorable. It’s certainly not very common to see skins to explain stocks recently (nationwide), let alone GameStop.
On Twitter, there is a leak showing that Ariana Grande will be added to the game. According to the leaked information collected for the new Pak file for the game update, there will be two variants of the skin. They will also be equipped with two backpacks.

According to Thursday, April 1st Athletic, The release of Season 6 of “Fortnite” made dinosaur eggs scattered all over the map. However, over time, the appearance of dinosaur eggs has changed.
Eventually, the Raptor got rid of the eggs that appeared to be developing. Epic Games announced in the game that the bird of prey is a species that can be hunted and tamed.
The last boss battle players are happy to see that “Fortress Night” is when Galactus appears on the island. This caused speculation in the community about the T-Rex boss incident.
As for the Tyrannosaurus boss, considering the original time theme of the game, this is certainly not impossible.
The game has begun to protect various points of interest in the game. Needless to say, if “Fortnite” does witness the addition of new boss characters (such as T-Rex), then in-game events will definitely be released for players to participate.
However, Epic Games has not disclosed any details about the possibility of a thunderstorm in the Season 6 game. Therefore, these theories and speculations are only speculations at present.
The game has undergone major improvements in functionality, including production features and the introduction of wild animals to the game.
So far, so far this season, epic games have surprised most “Fortnite” communities. It is not surprising to know that there will be more game reserves.
Mushroom skin is becoming a hot commodity for fashion brands looking for an alternative to genuine leather. Now, Ecovative, a materials innovation company based in New York, sees the industry as the next big opportunity for growth, and plans to scale up production to be the first to offer such a skin-like replacement on a large scale by the end of the year.
Ecovatives grow the mycelium, the root structure of mushrooms, and turn them into skin substitutes, as well as offerings in other sectors, such as meat alternatives. The team served as the initial supplier for the Mylo Bolt Threads mushroom skin, which Stella McCartney piloted in a two-piece vegan collection earlier this year. Ecovative this week announced a $ 60 million Series D financing round, which will be used to expand production and potential applications. CEO Eben Bayer sees mycelium as a solution in reducing the fashion footprint by shifting the industry away from leather, and said it is now ready to scale its own operations and target fashion clients, signaling growing opportunities and increasing competition in the nascent category.
“Our mission is to make mycelium widely available on a large scale,” he said. The company plans to take lessons from him its food business and apply it to textiles, Bayer added. “To date, neither fashion brands nor their consumers have access to more than a limited number of mycelium – we are dedicated to changing that.”
Interest in plant-based alternatives to leather is soaring, both because of the heating demand for vegan clothing and as the industry strives to lower its carbon footprint. Animal agriculture is a significant source of global emissions and tropical deforestation, and brands are increasingly willing to experiment with alternative staple foods that are emerging on the market. Earlier this month, Hermès, a major supplier of luxury leather goods, announced plans to use a mycelium-like leather material developed with MycoWorks in one of its bags by the end of the year.
Apart from Bolted and Ecovative Yarns, MycoWorks also works with mycelium, Natural Fiber Welding using cork, natural rubber and other natural materials for make the Mirum materials such as leather, and a number of other companies work with plant residues such as grapes and pineapples to create their own substitutes. However, neither of these were used on a large scale; Plant waste bark has been adopted to a limited extent by fashion, and while a number of large or well-known brands have taken an interest in Bolt Threads, the company has collaborated on a proof-of-concept product but has not delivered full-scale production. Ecovative wants to be the first to offer a plant-based leather alternative that is ready to scale, and could raise the stakes in the fashion race for more sustainable, higher-quality skin replacement, with a more attractive look and feel, than plastic-based vegan materials.
Although the start was difficult and encountered various delays and technical problems, the online mode of “Watchdogs Army” is finally here. If you don’t own this game yet, then you can fully try the game free this weekend.
Unlike the previous “Watch Dogs” games, the online mode is separate from the single player mode, but if you don’t have a chance yet, then the online mode still provides you with a good opportunity to roam the streets of London. If you really want to try online features, now is a good choice, although I personally prefer single-player games.
One disadvantage is that the free trial can only access half of London, while the other half is locked. The game will be played for free from March 25th to 29th, and you can even start preloading the game immediately. As you might expect, if you decide to buy the game after the free weekend, you will also keep any progress you have made.
Games and season tickets are now on sale, the main game can enjoy a 50% discount in all stores, and the season ticket can enjoy a 25% discount.
