When Julie Flett illustrated her first children's book, "The Moccasins," she thought that it would stay within the bounds of her Indigenous community. It also includes Thanksgiving, which stands with Columbus Day (increasingly celebrated as Indigenous People's Day) as a holiday activists are pushing to redefine. Central to that effort is highlighting the history and experiences of Native and Indigenous peoples in North America and acknowledging that those communities still exist in vibrant ways. Indigenous literature was dismissed as valuable only for members of Indigenous communities and thought of as holding limited importance for everyone else. Part of Flett's mission is to shore up endangered Indigenous languages like Cree and Michif, which she's done through books about the alphabet and colors.

LONDON – Sequoia Capital, one of the best-known venture capital firms on Menlo Park's Sand Hill Road in Silicon Valley, has made a major new bet on what it thinks is the next hottest thing: Europe. "Being physically on the ground … enables us to move more quickly … and to dramatically level up the effort," veteran Sequoia partner Matt Miller told CNBC on a video call on Monday. "I was coming (to London) one week a month but you can only see and do so much. There are now several European tech firms worth in excess of $10 billion and Miller believes people are starting to ask when a $100 billion start-up in Europe will emerge. The fact that the firm has formally set up in Europe "can only be validation for entrepreneurs here," he said.

The FDA will determine whether to authorize Covid-19 vaccines for use. Decisions might come in December for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. The federal government has a contract with McKesson Corp. to be a centralized distributor of Covid-19 vaccines, with the exception of Pfizer’s.

Michael Gove admits there'll be Brexit disruption at Britain's borders in January, telling logistics industry leaders on Wednesday that "not everything will be alright on the night." Gove today warned of more chaos awaited at Britain's borders, telling industry leaders "there will inevitably be some disruption." Michael Gove, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, has warned that there will "inevitably" be disruption at Britain's borders and that "traffic will rise" when Britain leaves EU trade rules in January. David Henig, UK Director at the European Centre For International Political Economy and former UK trade official, said Gove's comments were "complacent remarks failing to capture the size of the change and likely impact." Many small businesses have said they are too busy dealing with the pandemic to focus on Brexit, Churchill told MPs.

Don Hackett, founder and publisher of CoronavirusToday, said that cold chain vaccine storage itself is a standard requirement and shouldn't pose a challenge to U.S. hospitals or pharmacies. "In the developing world, cold chain requirements may be a show-stopper," he said. "Cold chain distribution in pharma is complicated even in normal times," David Gitlin, president and CEO of Carrier Global Corp. told CNBC. "Our healthcare and pharmacy supply chain knows how to properly store, distribute and administer these kinds of vaccines," he said. According to an HHS spokesperson, OWS will also ensure that administration sites have the cold-storage resources they need, including fresh dry ice to extend vaccine storage.

Here are 10 brands that experts say would either complement P&G's existing consumer brands or take it into new areas. For Procter & Gamble and other large consumer companies, finding growth isn't always easy. Sales of many personal and home care products have surged during 2020 as consumers rely more on personal care products like soap and cleaners to disinfect their homes.

A deal between Salesforce and Slack would make sense for both companies and put increased competitive pressure on Microsoft, several analysts said. Adding Slack to the portfolio would allow Salesforce to combine its productivity products in much the same way that Microsoft has with Teams, analysts said. An acquisition would be good for Slack's growth prospectsFor Slack's part, many analysts see an acquisition as a positive sign for its growth and prospects. "Microsoft Teams has been capitalizing on this opportunity better," Jaluria said. But analysts said they expected a merger between Slack and Salesforce to take a lot of pressure off Slack.

But doses of the drugs, one made by Regeneron and the other by Eli Lilly, are extremely limited. "It is very challenging," Dr. Raymund Razonable, an infectious disease specialist with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, said. In fact, the FDA says the Regeneron and the Eli Lilly treatments should not be given to already hospitalized patients, or those on oxygen. With some doses already available and more on the way, hospital systems nationwide are developing protocols for which patients will get the treatments. Complicating matters is that the Eli Lilly and the Regeneron treatments are given by IV infusion, soon after patients test positive.

LONDON (Reuters) - Oil hit its highest since March on Tuesday, rising towards $47 a barrel, as a third promising coronavirus vaccine spurred hopes of a quicker recovery in economic growth and oil demand next year. FILE PHOTO: The sun is seen behind a crude oil pump jack in the Permian Basin in Loving County, Texas, U.S., November 22, 2019. “Next year’s oil demand estimates are bound to be amended upwards.”This is Brent’s highest since a Saudi Arabia-Russia price war just as demand was starting to crater due to the pandemic in March sent prices crashing. Also supporting oil and wider financial markets, U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday allowed officials to proceed with a transition to Joe Biden’s administration. After the price war in March, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies led by Russia, a group known as OPEC+, agreed to record high output cuts to support prices.
