Denmark went so far as to cull 17 million minks in November in response to outbreaks at more than 200 mink farms. The northern region of the country, where most fur farms lie, was placed under strict lockdowns. And across the Atlantic, mink farms in the U.S. are seeing Covid-19 spread and deaths of their own. At fur farms, minks are densely packed in conditions ripe for close contact with one another. Culling is often the answer when data on animal spread is inconclusive.

President Donald Trump has "checked out" on his Iran policy, giving Secretary of State Mike Pompeo freedom to dictate policy short of "start[ing] World World III," The Daily Beast reported, citing US officials. Trump wants to deter Iran from rejoining the 2015 nuclear deal, a key plan of Biden's incoming administration. Former US diplomats previously told Insider the November 27 hit on Iran's top nuclear scientist — believed to be perpetrated by Israel — was also designed to damage Biden's plan. One White House official told the outlet that Trump has "checked out" over Iran, handing the reigns to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other Iran hawks in the administration. But the news that Trump has given up on directing Iran policy indicates that his attention has run its course.

It's Salesforce's third massive purchase in less than three years, following the $15.3 billion deal for Tableau last year and $6.5 billion acquisition of MuleSoft in 2018. Benioff co-founded Salesforce in 1999 after 13 years at Oracle, where he became the company's youngest-ever vice president. As Benioff was getting Salesforce out of start-up mode in its early years, Ellison was turning Oracle into an M&A machine. Oracle made its biggest purchase in 2004, acquiring human resources software company PeopleSoft for $10.3 billion. The $6.5 billion Salesforce spent on MuleSoft was more than twice what it had ever paid for an acquisition.

No CFO indicated they think it is "very likely" that a corporate tax hike is coming, though a little under one-third of chief financial officers (32%) indicated they do think it is "somewhat likely" Biden achieves his corporate tax goal. Where tax policy experts think Biden can act"Absent single party control, it will be extremely challenging for the Biden Administration to legislatively roll back the 2017 tax reform," Caroline Harris, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's vice president, tax policy and economic development, and chief tax policy counsel, wrote in an email to CNBC. "Biden's biggest revenue-raisers are an increase in the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent and a provision to impose the Social Security payroll tax on wages above $400,000. Biden's plan would combine this new tax break with several corporate tax increases, including new taxes on U.S. firms with overseas income. "The consensus seems to be that Biden will attempt to raise corporate taxes and be unsuccessful in doing so.

President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to "end forever wars," but human rights groups are concerned by a lack of specifics behind this vow. Biden has been fairly silent on topics like drone strikes and air strikes, and hasn't outlined how he'd work to prevent civilian casualties. American service members are also scattered across Africa and involved in counterterrorism operations, including drone strikes, throughout the continent. "One of Biden's first steps should be to bar the CIA from carrying out drone strikes and other targeted killings. "We saw a huge increase in air strikes during the Trump administration, and a corresponding huge increase in civilians killed and injured from those air strikes," Eviatar said, noting that Amnesty documented 1,600 civilians killed from a four-month campaign in Syria alone.

The North America-based CFOs indicated the lowest level of planned spending pullbacks, with CFOs from Europe (9%) and Asia-Pacific (15%) more likely to say investment will be reduced in 2021. A significant percentage of corporate chief financial officers are making 2021 spending and hiring plans around vaccine optimism, but the current case surge in the U.S. and Europe is making a dent in confidence. In Europe, CFOs were twice as likely to say headcount would increase, at 36%, versus 18% who expect workforce reductions. Asia is the only region in which CFOs say layoffs (46%) will be more widespread than job additions (31%).

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany takes questions during a press briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, U.S., December 2, 2020. Jonathan Ernst | ReutersPresident Donald Trump's spokeswoman refused to say Wednesday whether Trump still has faith in Attorney General William Barr, a day after Barr said there was no significant evidence to support the president's claim that widespread ballot fraud led to his defeat by President-elect Joe Biden. The interview sparked immediate speculation that Trump would fire Barr, who until Tuesday was seen as a staunchly loyal supporter of the president.

But funds raised so far in 2020 totaled around $3.94 billion, exceeding last year's roughly $3 billion, according to Deloitte. The consultancy studied IPO trends in six major Southeast Asian stock markets: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Both the number of offerings and amount of funds raised were lower than last year's, when 161 IPOs raised $7.34 billion, said Deloitte. But the listings of several homegrown companies in Thailand this year appealed "strongly" to investors and fund managers, said Wilasinee Krishnamra, disruptive events advisory leader at Deloitte Thailand, in a webinar last week.

Continued claimsAround 5.9 million filed a "continued claim" for state unemployment insurance the week of Nov. 14, according to the Labor Department. They may also reflect new claims filed by workers laid off for a second time during the pandemic.

The stakes for them to get it right, after years of struggling to combat vaccine misinformation, couldn't be higher. Some social networks have already put policies in place specifically against Covid-19 vaccine misinformation; others are still deciding on the best approach or are leaning on existing policies for Covid-19 and vaccine-related content. At least one group was specifically centered around opposition to a Covid-19 vaccine. Moderna says it will ask US and European regulators to allow emergency use of its COVID-19 vaccine as new study results confirm the shots offer strong protection. Here's where the platforms stand on combating Covid-19 vaccine misinformation so far.

The official manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for November came in at 52.1, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. Four factors drove manufacturing activity in November, according to Zhao Qinghe, the bureau's senior statistician. China also released PMI data for the services sector, which similarly showed that activity expanded for the ninth straight month. The official non-manufacturing PMI reading for November was 56.4, compared with 56.2 in October, data by the statistics bureau showed.

The U.K. government decided to ban 5G equipment from Huawei over the summer, reversing course after heightened pressure from the United States. In July, U.K. Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said mobile network operators would be forced to stop buying Huawei equipment from the end of 2020 and to strip out the firm's gear from their infrastructure entirely by 2027. Supply chain diversificationNow, Dowden has laid out a roadmap to reduce Huawei's 5G market share in the country to zero.

A recent Chinese military training guideline tries to close gap between today's Chinese troops and the rapid move toward advanced weapons systems. Unlike Russian and American defense forces, China's military has not seen real combat since the 1980s, leading to a lack of warfare knowledge. A military insider said that more than 70% of the document was based on US military guidelines for joint operations. Military observers and an insider said a lack of real combat talent remained a serious barrier to meeting those challenges. But his experience could be dated to four decades ago," said a military insider, who requested anonymity, referring to Gen. Li Zuocheng, chief of the PLA Joint Staff Department.

Combined with Tesla's dominance of the still-small EV market, this new manufacturing capacity could ideally position the company to compete in countries where growth is expected to be substantial. That makes Tesla not just the world's most valuable automaker but one of the planet's most valuable companies, period. This holds as true for electric vehicles as it does for those that run on gas. With a German factory, Tesla could use its dominant position, controlling much of the still-tiny global EV market, to build directly into local demand. The game plan for China could be the same, although to meet demand there, Tesla is likely to need additional plants.
