Eurozone’s recovery is continuing, although it has been weaker than expected at the start of the year, according to analysts at BNP Paribas.
“Intra-EU trade builds with domestic demand, especially corporate investment.”
“Inflation has rebounded in the wake of higher oil prices, but the core CPI trend remains subdued. Along with renewed tensions over sovereign debt spreads (Italy) this argues for the ECB to keep on buying until year end at least, and to maintain the status quo on key rates thereafter (first hike seen in Q4’19).” Reported by FXstreet.com 2 hours ago.

· *Scientists from the National Institute for Astrophysics in Bologna may have found a lake of liquid water on Mars. *
· * Satellite data suggests the water might lie underneath the surface of a polar ice cap.*
· *The researchers used radar to probe the ice cap, and their new study suggests the potential lake could be 20 kilometers long.*
--------------------We've heard it before — there may be a major source of water on Mars, in ice sheets that lie just under the red planet's. But according to a new study published in the journal Science, liquid water may exist there, too.
Researchers from the National Institute for Astrophysics in Bologna in Italy used a radar tool on the European Space Agency's Mars Express satellite to probe the planet's ice caps. They believe three years' worth of data indicates there could be a lake of liquid water under the caps that stretches 20 kilometers across.
The team, led by Roberto Orosei, said this may be the first time scientists have found liquid water that can remain in a liquid state for a prolonged period of time, rather than freezing. Elsewhere on the red planet, it is too cold for water to remain a liquid — Mars' average temperature is -81 degrees Fahrenheit (-62 degrees Celsius).
"If these researchers are right, this is the first time we've found evidence of a large water body on Mars," Cassie Stuurman, a geophysicist at the University of Texas who found signs of an enormous Martian ice deposit in 2016, told the AP.
*Searching for Martian water*
In their paper, the researchers suggested that the lake could lie about 1.5 kilometers below the ice cap's surface. But they are not yet certain whether there is really a lake there or how deep it could be. Until a human expedition or more sophisticated Rovers can investigate the polar region further, we won't know for sure. But for now, liquid water seems to be the most likely explanation for what researchers observed.
"I really have no other explanation," Orosei told the AP.
Radar detection has proved unreliable for gathering information about Mars in the past. But after reprogramming the radar tool on the Mars Express satellite — called the Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding, or MARSIS — radar pulses were able to penetrate the surface of the ice caps.
The tool measured how radio waves traveled and behaved when traveling through Mars' ice caps, then the satellite beamed that information to Earth. This gave the team an idea of the composition under the ice caps.
Time was also not on the researchers' side, however. They had to wait for the satellite to be in the right place to observe the caps at night time, a position that has only occurred 30 times in three years.
*Liquid water would have major implications for life on Mars and future human settlements*
Orosei told New Scientist that a combination of calcium, magnesium, and sodium salts on Mars can lower water's freezing point, which might explain the possibility of a liquid lake.
If it exists, there's also hope that the water could potentially host life.
"It is not a place where life would be expected to have an easy time, but it is possible based upon terrestrial analogues," Orosei told New Scientist. The analogues he's referring to are places on Earth that researchers have used to mimic Mars environments to test conditions in which microbes could survive.
Finding a source of liquid water on Mars would also be exciting for the prospect that the red planet could one day host a human settlement. Both Elon Musk and NASA have released plans to send humans to Mars, maybe as soon as the 2030s.
But there are huge barriers to any colonization efforts, such as growing enough food and recycling waste. Pre-delivered supplies and habitats could sustain human life on the barren surface for a year or two, some experts say, but long term colonization is a different matter. Researchers have even highlighted concerns about how reproduction would work on Mars, should a self-sustaining settlement ever arise there, since life in space has dramatic effects on people's health.
Despite all these challenges, it's exciting that there could be an underground reservoir of water on Mars. Perhaps it could be tapped as a resource, or maybe it harbors undiscovered clues about alien life.
Plus, as Orosei said in a statement, this discovery may be a clue that Mars has other hidden bodies of water that are still waiting to be found.
"This is just one small study area; it is an exciting prospect to think there could be more of these underground pockets of water elsewhere, yet to be discovered," he said.

NOW WATCH: What it's like to pretend to live on Mars for 8 months Reported by Business Insider 19 hours ago.
· *A blood moon or total lunar eclipse is happening on Friday, July 27.*
· *At 1 hour 43 minutes of totality, the lunar eclipse will be the longest until the year 2123.*
· *People in North America, including the US, Canada, and Mexico, won't be able to see the blood moon.*
· *But NASA, the Weather Channel, TimeAndDate.com, Slooh, and others will broadcast live online footage of the astronomical event. Here's how to watch.*
A majority of Earth is in for a special astronomical treat on Friday night: the longest total lunar eclipse (also known as a blood moon) in a century.
On that night, our planet will slip in front of the sun to cast an orange-red shadow on the full moon. From the moon, the Earth would appear to be surrounded by a 25,000-mile-around ring of fire.
Unfortunately, a big swath of the planet won't get witness this astronomical spectacle first-hand. The moon will be below the horizon and entirely out of sight in the US, Canada, Mexico, and other North American countries during the eclipse. (Cloudy weather could also block a clear view of the night sky for those in regions where the eclipse is visible.)
So praise be to the magic of cameras, high-powered lenses or telescopes, and the internet — anyone with a decent web connection can watch the blood moon from their phone or computer.
Below we've listed a number of ways you can watch the total lunar eclipse live using online video streams. Some you can even play without leaving this page.
*What to look for and when*
To fully enjoy a blood moon, whether in person or online, it helps to understand the sequence of events, their timing, and their effects.
The official start of the lunar eclipse is just before 1:15 p.m. EDT (17:15 UT) on Friday, July 27. This is when the moon first touches Earth's outer shadow or penumbra. It might look like the moon is getting a bite taken out of it.
The penumbral shadow will grow and deepen until about 2:24 p.m. EDT (18:24 UT). At this point, the moon will start turning orange-red because it's entering Earth's central shadow or umbra.
By about 3:30 p.m. EDT (19:30 UT), the moon should look completely colored and in "totality," or totally inside our planet's umbra.
Peak or greatest eclipse — when the moon is closest to the center of the umbra — will happen just before 4:22 p.m. EDT (20:22 UT). The moon will be at its darkest at that point.
From there, these phases will happen in reverse, with totality ending 1 hour 42 minutes and 57 seconds after it started, at 5:13 p.m. EDT (21:13 UT). That's the longest total lunar eclipse until June 9, 2123.
Finally, at 6:19 p.m. EDT (22:19 UT), the moon will exit the umbra; by 7:28 p.m. EDT (23:28 UT), the whole event will be over. After that, our lunar companion will be fully outside Earth's shadow and look like a typical full moon.
Here's how to watch all this live:
Slooh, a company that airs live views of space, plans to broadcast telescope views of the entire lunar eclipse from start to finish. Their YouTube feed should go live at 1:00 p.m. EDT (17:00 UT), which is 15 minutes before the event begins.During their show, which will also air on Facebook Live, astronomers will likely comment on the history and science of total lunar eclipses.
As Slooh explained in an email to Business Insider, the eclipse will happen when the moon "is farthest from Earth and appears at its smallest, therefore taking more time to pass through Earth's umbral shadow."
An alternative way to watch most of the lunar eclipse will be Time and Date which will start its live coverage 2:00 p.m. EDT (18:00 UT).The website also has useful interactive maps of the event.
*3. The Virtual Telescope Project*
The Virtual Telescope Project, which published some of the first astronomical images of Elon Musk's car flying toward Mars orbit, will have its cameras trained on the moon during the lunar eclipse. The webcast should kick off at 2:30 p.m. EDT (18:30 UT)."Our live coverage will be from a very unique place, the Roman Forum on the Palatine Hill, from where the eclipsed moon and the red planet will show just above the legendary Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine," astronomer Gianluca Masi, who runs the site from Europe, told Business Insider in an email. "So, both the sky and the landscape will amaze the people worldwide thanks to our streaming, as we will share all this with them."
*4. The Weather Channel*
This outlet has an app that will livestream the eclipse starting at 4 p.m. ET, "including the best views of the lunar eclipse from field crews in multiple countries, such as Greece, Luxembourg, Italy and Australia," a representative told Business Insider in an email.
You have to download The Weather Channel's app to watch their footage, which should last about an hour.
Note, however that only people watching from the US (or perhaps via a US internet service provider) will get to see this blood moon webcast.

Anfield Energy Inc (CVE:AEC, OTCQB:ANLDF) has found potential vanadium targets after it recently bought an exploration database of mining projects in the Western United States. The targets in both Colorado and Utah complement Anfield’s Utah-based Shootaring Canyon mill as Anfield could include a vanadium processing circuit here. They could also serve as a potential extended vanadium project pipeline beyond the Velvet-Wood uranium/vanadium project. Anfield revealed that its prospective energy partners have shown an increasing interest in its vanadium assets due to the recent upturn in the vanadium price – from between US$4.00 and US$15.00 per pound. “The identification of potential vanadium targets in in our recently-acquired database offers a distinct advantage to the company, said Corey Dias, Anfield's chief executive. "Anfield has already identified a vanadium exploration target of between 6.3 million pounds and 9.7 million pounds at its past-producing Velvet-Wood uranium mine – at which vanadium was previously produced as a byproduct – and the potential to create a significant pipeline of vanadium projects is compelling," said Dias. "This is even more attractive to Anfield as it holds one of only three licensed, permitted and constructed uranium mills in the U. S., and the ability to add a vanadium processing circuit to the Shootaring Canyon mill provides a strategic advantage to the company in relation to its peers as Anfield could accelerate the vanadium production process." Dias highlighted that vanadium was increasingly being embraced by battery manufacturers as a core material in the production of batteries to be used in both small-scale and large-scale applications; in fact, vanadium redox-flow batteries (VFBs) have started to grow in influence as energy companies look to improve energy storage. "This ranges from grid-scale uses, such as Prudent Technology’s use of a VFB for its solar installation in Italy, to smaller-scale uses such as Warren Buffett’s BYD company using vanadium batteries for its electric vehicles and Subaru using a VFB to power its Subaru G4e vehicle," he said.
