Safari 5.1.7 update disables older Flash Players citing security reasons

Heads up Safari users, we certainly hope that the majority of you guys have remained up to date, but in case you’re the type of person who frequently neglects to update their software or if you know someone who’s like that, you should probably take note that in the latest update of Safari (to version 5.1.7), it seems that Apple has disabled older versions of Flash. However given that Adobe’s Flash Player has built-in auto-updates since version 10.3 last year, safe to say that whoever hasn’t updated their Flash Player in over a year will be the only ones affected. In any case if you suddenly find Flash Player not working after you’ve updated your Safari browser, perhaps updating to the latest version of it should do the trick.

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

– After falling significantly in 2020, oil prices have returned to pre-pandemic levels
– The rise has been driven by OPEC+ production cuts and an improving economic climate
– Higher prices are likely to support a rebound in oil-producing emerging markets
– Further virus outbreaks or increased production would pose challenges to price stability

A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Brent crude prices rose above $60 a barrel in early February, the first time they had exceeded pre-Covid-19 values. They have since continued to rise, going above $66 a barrel on February 24.

The ongoing increase in oil prices, which have soared by 75% since November and around 26% since the beginning of the year, marks a dramatic change from last year.

Following the closure of many national borders and the implementation of travel-related restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, demand for oil slumped globally.

In the wake of the Saudi-Russia price war in early 2020, Brent crude prices fell from around $60 a barrel in February that year to two-decade lows of $20 a barrel in late April, as supply increased and demand plummeted. The value of WTI crude – the main benchmark for oil in the US – fell to record lows of around $40 a barrel last year on the back of a lack of storage space.

While global demand for oil remains low, one factor credited with reversing the trend is the decision to make significant cuts to oil production, which subsequently tightened global supplies.
