Business owners upbeat about vaccine, wary as virus spreads

NEW YORK (AP) — Promising news about a coronavirus vaccine has small business owners feeling more upbeat despite cases of the virus surging in many parts of the U.S.

Owners hope consumers and businesses will be more relaxed about spending now that two drug companies, Pfizer and Moderna, have vaccines that data show were highly effective in testing. Some owners are rethinking their plans — some are holding off on staff cuts, while others say they’re more likely to renew their office leases even as employees still work from home.

But owners also realize many hurdles remain — the vaccines still require approval by the Food and Drug Administration, and then it will take time for millions of doses to be manufactured and widely distributed. It’s not clear how many people will decide to receive the vaccine, and in turn, how much of the population would be immune to the

This young congressman makes me nervous | Opinion

By Clifford Kulwin

Earlier this week, Emma Green wrote in The Atlantic that four years of President Trump “has made it harder than ever to separate evangelicalism from politics.” She’s right, and no-one embodies that reality better than newly-elected Congressman Madison Cawthorn.

Profiles of the 25-year-old North Carolina conservative frequently call him an “upstart” and a “firebrand.” He easily defeated a primary candidate endorsed by both President Trump and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who left the seat to go work in the White House.

Cawthorn has attracted lots of attention. It’s not always been good. Critics called him a white supremacist after a 2017 Tweet on a visit to Germany, “The vacation house of the Führer. Seeing the Eagles Nest has been on my bucket list for awhile, it did not disappoint.” Granted, the same Tweet later referred to Hitler as the “supreme evil,” but, for me at least,

Torrian Crawford, Rooster Teeth’s first Black director, is leveling up ‘Red vs. Blue’

For the first time in 17 years, Red vs. Blue is changing gears.

The cult sci-fi comedy from Rooster Teeth, the production company with a rabid online following founded in 2003, has a new director in Torrian Crawford. The 31-year-old animator from Detroit is giving the cult web series a major tune-up for its 18th season, which premiered November 9.

“[My] elevator pitch was Red vs. Blue meets Fast & Furious,” Crawford tells Inverse.

Comparisons to the billion-dollar Fast & Furious are unusually apt. Besides an emphasis on complex choreography, Crawford’s story for the Red vs. Blue series— a comedy that famously appropriates material from the Halo video game series — is not unlike the 2019 spin-off Hobbs & Shaw.

The new season, titled Red vs. Blue: Zero, follows a group of oddball soldiers who unite to save the galaxy from a strange enemy known as “Zero.”

Fauci urges Americans to conduct ‘risk-benefit assessment’ before holiday travel

Top infectious disease expert Anthony FauciAnthony FauciSunday shows preview: Biden transition, COVID-19 spike in spotlight Pressure rises for rapid COVID-19 testing White House largely silent on health precautions for Thanksgiving MORE urged Americans on Sunday to conduct a “risk-benefit assessment” before traveling for the holidays as Thanksgiving approaches this week.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), told NBC News’ “Meet the Press” that families need to consider the risks of gathering indoors. He said families especially need to take into account if their gatherings plan to include those who are elderly or have underlying conditions affecting their immune system.

“I think the people in this country need to realistically do a risk-benefit assessment,” he said. “Every family is different. Everyone has a different level of risk that they want to tolerate.”

The NIAID director acknowledged that holiday gatherings “have been such joyous

Health experts urge against Thanksgiving gatherings as coronavirus cases explode nationwide

“If you look at the map of spread across the country, you can see the risk; it’s very visible. And moving through airports or travel hubs, I think that will increase people’s risk,” Tom Inglesby, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Even if they’re driving from point to point, unfortunately, we don’t know if we’re infected when we walk into a gathering.”

He referred to recent data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that said most infections are spread by people with no symptoms. The CDC, during its first news briefing in months on Thursday, recommended against traveling and gathering for Thanksgiving and said people should instead celebrate in their own households.

“The message for everyone is: You can’t assume you don’t have the virus, and you can’t assume the people whose homes you’re about to enter don’t have

Coronavirus Upends Thanksgiving, While Some Ignore Travel Warnings

Ginger Floerchinger-Franks typically invites 10 people to her home in Boise, Idaho, for Thanksgiving dinner and cooks the entire meal herself, including her specialty, pumpkin soup.

But the pandemic has forced her to devise a new plan: a socially distant potluck. Three households will each prepare a dish, and Ms. Floerchinger-Franks will shuttle the platters between their homes. Then they will gather on Zoom to savor each other’s food.

“This is kind of an adventure,” she said.

The coronavirus pandemic has intensified across the country just as Americans are preparing to sit down to eat turkey and stuffing and to make their opinions airborne with parents, siblings, cousins, children and perhaps a friend with nowhere else to go. But now public health officials are warning against the very rituals many families take for granted: out-of-state travel and large, indoor gatherings.

The virus, and the precautions, have upended Thanksgiving in unprecedented

Nick Grigg a surprise inclusion in Glasgow team to face Munster

After being released from the Scotland squad to make way for Duncan Taylor, who started on the bench against France after being drafted in, centre Nick Grigg is a surprise inclusion in the Glasgow Warriors team to play Munster at Scotstoun tomorrow for the first time since October 2018.

The 28-year-old will be joined in the Glasgow centres by Robbie Fergusson, whose appearance against Ulster a fortnight ago, was his first full 15-a-side game for four years.

With Stafford McDowall unavailable through injury and Grigg starting at 13, Fergusson moves to inside centre.

Grigg’s inclusion is one of four changes from the Glasgow side which was well-beaten in Belfast, that 40-15 defeat coming on the back of a home loss to Leinster.

Having won just one of their five Pro14 games this season, Glasgow are ahead of Conference A’s bottom two teams, Dragons and Zebre, on points difference.

With undefeated

Booking.com boss on why Brussels is hampering Europe’s tech ambitions

“People look at a lot of different ways to book. The regulators don’t understand that more than half of hotelier’s business comes to them directly, and they have ways, through very easy-to-use technology, to distribute their rooms to many different retailers like ourselves, or maybe Expedia, or maybe Tui, or a wholesaler. They can send them anywhere and they do.”

At Booking, there is another thing at play here. Booking Holdings may be headquartered in the US but its Booking.com site, the expected subject of the new tougher rules and Booking’s largest business, is headquartered in the Netherlands. 

For Fogel, it seems this would make any harsher rules a tough pill to swallow.

“Booking.com is one of the very few success stories in Europe,” he says. “The last thing I think anybody would want to do is come up with regulations that will hurt one of the few success stories
