Americans travel home for Thanksgiving despite coronavirus surge

Those who are flying witnessed a distinctly 2020 landscape at the nation’s airports: plexiglass barriers in front of the ID stations, rapid virus testing sites inside terminals, masks in check-in areas and on board planes, and paperwork asking passengers to quarantine on arrival at their destination.

While the number of Americans travelling by air over the past several days was down dramatically from the same time last year, many pressed ahead with their holiday plans amid skyrocketing deaths, hospital admissions and confirmed infections across the US.

Some were tired of more than eight

Cult favorite brewery moves to online sales amid coronavirus pandemic, but there’s a catch

Everything’s going digital, even beer.

Beer fans have very specific tastes, so when they find a drink they like, they stick with it. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, however, one popular, yet limited, brew won’t be able to make its traditional debut. To make up for this, the brewery is offering the beer online… but with a catch.

Beer fans will normally travel to Russian River Brewing Co. to purchase its highly popular triple IPA called Pliny the Younger, which is released in limited quantities, SF Gate reports. Unfortunately, this year, the brewery won’t be selling the cult favorite in person, for obvious reasons.

Lovemore N’dou – The boxer who traded in his gloves for law and justice

A SHARP GLANCE down to the gold Rolex wrapped around his left wrist lets him know it’s almost time.

In one Hollywood-like flourish, he scoops up his jacket, slips in the left arm, then the right; the finishing touch to his immaculate black Armani suit. After straightening his silver tie and adjusting his cuffs, he reaches down and lifts up a brown suitcase containing the morning’s files — a criminal conciliation hearing beginning at 10 a.m. sharp.

Moments later he spins around and heads toward the entrance of the Family Court of Australia, the click-clack of his polished dress shoes on the gray marble floor echoes around the foyer as he prepares to make his entrance.

Lovemore N’dou is no stranger to having a sea of eyes fixated on him every time he walks into work. A professional boxer for two decades, N’dou fought 64 times during his career, and

Thanksgiving It will look different in many ways in 2020, and that includes the traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. But the amazing holiday is going to happen, and it will still be broadcast live, so the home chefs can listen to it while they prepare. A socially distanced turkey dinner. The show will air on NBC from 9 AM to noon in all time zones. Here’s how to go and what to expect.

What has changed?

Macy’s partnered with New York City to try to make this year’s parade safe, without sacrificing the scenery.

“To avoid gathering large crowds of onlookers along our traditional 2.5-mile route in New York City, we cut short the road

Chinese Statue of Yang Asha, Goddess of Beauty, Sparks Debate

JIANHE, China — Yang Asha smiled serenely down at the craggy emerald landscape, her hand outstretched in welcome. She appeared unmoved by the fierce condemnation her presence has ignited in China — she is, after all, made of gleaming stainless steel and bigger than the Statue of Liberty.

To officials in her corner of China, the statue of Yang Asha, a goddess of beauty, serves as a tribute to the rich culture of the local people and, they hope, a big draw for sightseers and their money. To many others in China, she is another white elephant in a country full of expensive monuments, gaudy tourist traps and wasteful vanity projects that draw money away from real problems.

Those critics point to the statue of Guan Yu, a general from antiquity, in the city of Jingzhou, where he also towers higher than the Statue of Liberty and wields an enormous

Record holiday spending projected from more disposable income due to pandemic | Business

A side effect of the pandemic could make merchants a little merrier this holiday season.

Because consumers have more money to spend from not traveling, lower fuel costs and a recovering job market,  the National Retail Federation projects shoppers will lay out a record amount on gifts and other trappings of Christmas this year.

The trade group this week predicted spending on gifts and decorations will rise between $755 billion and $767 billion during November and December, an increase of 3.6 percent to 5.2 percent over last year.

Underpinning the record retail sales projection are a surging stock market, strong home sector and higher savings boosted by government stimulus payments, according to the federation.

It has been a long few weeks. The capital had just got back into the swing of returning to some form of normality before the latest lockdown was imposed from November 5.

But it now appears business lunches could be back on the cards for Londoners from December 2.

The Government revealed on Thursday that the capital, which has latest Covid rates as diverse as Camden’s 97 cases per 100,000 and Redbridge’s 300 cases per 100,000, will be placed under updated Tier 2 restrictions from next week.

What does this mean for the much-missed business lunch, or even a cheeky business dinner?

As we know, business lunches don’t just make us feel happier about going to work, but allow people the chance to make important connections and deals that eventually help further careers.

Here we outline the situation:

Can the Mainstream Catch Up to Rico Nasty?

When the rapper Rico Nasty talks about falling in love at first sight, she doesn’t mean with an individual, but with a feeling. She’s talking about her first time on a real stage, and not even as a performer, but as a hanger-on in the wings. Still, that night, everything was moving in dreamy slow motion.

Nasty, now 23, had cautiously started releasing songs on SoundCloud around the time she finished high school in 2015, but she was still bashful about her dreams of becoming a rapper when the upstart teen sensation Lil Yachty invited her to a show.

Even back then, when she was just Maria Kelly, a teenager from the Palmer Park neighborhood of Prince George’s County, Md., Nasty was a charismatic cutup, and she’d caught Yachty’s attention with her high jinks on Vine and Twitter. But standing up there behind him — “like a groupie, HA-HA!” she
