Rihanna will headline Super Bowl LVII.

Rihanna and the NFL announced Sunday afternoon that the singer will headline the Super Bowl halftime show, which will be played on February 12, 2023 in Glendale, Arizona.

The halftime show will be the first under its new title sponsor Apple Music, which replaces Pepsi at the game this season. Pepsi had been the show’s title sponsor since 2012. The show will be produced by DPS with Roc Nation.

“Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who exceeded expectations at every turn,” Roc Nation founder and rapper Jay-Z said in a statement. “A person born on the small island of Barbados who has become one of the most prominent entertainers of all time. Self-taught in business and entertainment“

Rihanna has largely moved away from music since her last studio album in 2016. The nine-time Grammy Award winner has instead focused on launching her Fenty brands. The 34-year-old has an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion, making her the youngest self-made female billionaire in the United States this year, according to Forbes.

Rihanna was initially offered the Super Bowl berth in 2020, but turned it down in solidarity with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was essentially kicked out of the league after his demonstrations of social justice during the national anthem.

It was reported Friday that Taylor Swift was set to headline the show for the first time, but that deal never materialized.

Last year’s Super Bowl halftime show was the most-watched in five years, according to NBC Sports. The show featured Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and 50 Cent; it averaged over 103 million viewers, up 7% from Super Bowl LV.

“We are thrilled to welcome Rihanna to the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show stage,” NFL Music Director Seth Dudowsky said in a statement.

“Rihanna is a one-of-a-kind performer who has been a cultural force throughout her career. We look forward to working with Rihanna, Roc Nation and Apple Music to bring fans another historic Halftime Show performance.”

The IRU North American Transport Forum debated how road hauliers are handling the accelerated pace of decarbonisation and its impact on the sector.

Finding the right balance between reducing vehicle emissions and their carbon footprint, while ensuring that road transport operations continue to operate efficiently to serve people and businesses, is a central objective for the IRU.

An IRU North American Transport Forum event held last week focused on how road transport operators, or road hauliers, are managing the rapid pace at which decarbonisation is affecting the sector.

Three major companies from Canada, Mexico and the United States, covering different parts of the road transport sector, spoke about their experiences following an introduction by IRU President Radu Dinescu, who also presented the Green Deal of IRU, and closing remarks by IRU Secretary General, Umberto de Pretto.

Radu Dinescu, IRU Presidentsaid: “Our greatest challenge is to reduce CO₂ emissions in transport in order to properly meet global, regional and national deadlines, but also to continue to nurture and develop opportunities, economic prosperity and social harmony. brought by road transport.

“The Green Compact is based on an open, flexible and collaborative multi-stakeholder approach. The IRU works in partnership with industry to help it achieve ambitious decarbonisation targets. We need to identify the most effective ways to achieve full decarbonization while respecting regional diversity and national realities, and also openly share feedback, information and progress.

Jorge Casares Lopez, who directs Alianza Trayecto, said, “As a transportation leader in Mexico, we are fully committed to working within our industry, from suppliers to other road carriers, to reduce our carbon footprint. In this sense, we have undertaken research to see which technologies could best apply to our business model and our vehicles.

“We are fully committed to looking at all the technologies being developed around the world to make sure we can meet the decarbonization challenge and implement them where it makes sense.”

Ken Marko, Senior Director of Fleet Sustainability at US Foods, said: “We are still at the beginning of the industry when it comes to the development of electric vehicles. But there are a lot of different vendors involved in this, with a lot of electric vehicles being developed.

“For carriers, it is very important that they understand the duty cycle of vehicles and their range requirements, and how to define the right technologies to integrate into their fleets. From a fleet perspective, there really is no silver bullet. There are many technologies that can support sustainability initiatives, and this includes examining operational efficiency. »

Scott Tilley, Chairman of the Tandet Group, said: “The best solution is to burn less carbon. Zero is less and would be a great target. But is it practical, real and available today? One challenge is whether these technologies can work in a country that spends up to five months in freezing temperatures or below.

“But, more importantly, we need to look at strategies around legacy issues within our industry so that we can make changes bit by bit that, if done thoughtfully and consistently, will make a difference.

“For me, our biggest challenge is to change the status quo. It’s really in the hands of government and industry, and there will be resistance to that, to change the legacy things that we do. But we are determined to move forward.

Umberto de Pretto, IRU Secretary General, in his closing remarks, said: “Governments need to start realizing that everything, absolutely everything, depends on road transport. We have the CO₂ challenge and, as I heard one of the other speakers say, “there is no silver bullet”. We have to look not only at the national level, but at the regional level, what is the best combination.

“I would like to invite you to work with us on our Green Compact, so that we continue to be grounded in reality. What could reduce CO₂ emissions, make our businesses stronger and revive economies? »

The North American Transport Forum brings together IRU members, supply chain leaders, broader industry and governments to improve cross-border transport and logistics in North America. It is managed in cooperation with IRU members ATA, CANACAR and CTA.

Air cargo volumes from Hong Kong are impacted by regulations for transporting e-cigarettes in the Special Administrative Region (SAR) for transshipment.

The Hong Kong Freight Forwarders and Logistics Association (HAFFA) said that in April, the 2021 Smoking Ordinance came into effect, banning the import of smoking products, such as e-cigarettes, heated tobacco products and herbal cigarettes.

The ban also means that products can no longer be transshipped through Hong Kong when being trucked for onward transport overseas, although air transshipment cargo and transit cargo that remains on aircraft and ships are exempt.

A member survey suggests that 330,000 tons of air cargo per year are affected by the ban, with the value of re-exported cargo estimated at more than 120 billion yuan.

HAFFA said the ban has “stifled the environment of the freight logistics industry and negatively impacted the livelihoods of its employees”.

HAFFA President Gary Lau said: “Since the Legislative Council passed the Ordinance in October last year, the association has continued to receive a large number of complaints from our members and other industry stakeholders, reflecting that the ordinance has had a seriously detrimental effect on the working environment.

“We have written to the CEO/policy office four times about this.

“The order has led to a severe decline in the overall volume of Hong Kong’s air exports, causing industry, airlines, cargo terminals and the international airport to lose hundreds of thousands of tonnes of re-exports each year. from Hong Kong.

“It’s bound to shake Hong Kong’s status as a regional transshipment hub, and people’s livelihoods have been hit hard.”

Lau said HAFFA agrees with the original intent of the legislation to protect public health, but urged the government to allow transshipment by land.

“We will continue to do everything in our power to continue to work with the government to expand the scope of the exemption under the order to include the mode of land-to-air transshipment,” he said. he declares.

HAFFA held an emergency meeting on Sept. 9 with industry organizations, Deputy Finance Secretary Michael Wong Wai Lun, Transportation and Logistics Secretary Lam Sai Hung and Constituency Legislative Council Member Functional Transport Frankie Yick Chi Ming.

“The meeting was convened to discuss the government’s ban on the transshipment of e-cigarettes by land, a move that has stifled the environment of the freight logistics industry and negatively impacted the means livelihood of its employees,” HAFFA said.

“HAFFA has been disseminating opinions, researching solutions, and proposing a new set of secure land transportation methods to prevent illegal e-cigarette products from entering the black market through land transshipment in an effort to allay government concerns” , he added.

Suggestions by Armenian and Azerbaijani officials that the two countries could sign a peace treaty by the end of this year or sometime next year have sparked discussions about what precisely it will contain and whether the corridors of transport that were to be reopened in accordance with the November 2020 declaration will be included.

This tripartite declaration specified that the transport links closed by the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Qarabagh would be reopened, raising hopes in Azerbaijan that this would involve the Zengezur corridor between Azerbaijan proper and the non-contiguous autonomy of Azerbaijan. , Nakhichevan.

Because this corridor would cross Armenian territory and because at least according to most discussions, it would be controlled by Russian forces in their roles as peacekeepers and border guards, which was opposed in Armenia where many see it as an attempt to encircle and even destroy their country.

Now, Russian commentator Stanislav Tarasov has published an article that suggests reopening the Zengezur Corridor may actually be off the table. He says that security issues on the Black Sea and the potential development of north-south rail traffic from Russia to Iran mean that for Azerbaijan, the importance of Zengezur is “decreasing” (iarex.ru/articles/ 86528.html).

Given the both symbolic and practical importance of having direct land transport between Azerbaijan and Nakhchivan and thus beyond to Turkey, it is hard to believe that this is the case. But Tarasov’s words suggest that Moscow hopes that will be the case and could push to drop any reference to Zengezur in a future peace treaty.
