President-elect Joe Biden is expected to nominate Jake Sullivan as his national security adviser and Linda Thomas-Greenfield as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, multiple sources familiar with the plans told NBC News. Sullivan served in the Obama administration as national security adviser to then-Vice President Biden before serving as director of policy planning at the State Department and as deputy chief of staff to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Thomas-Greenfield served as the assistant secretary of state for Africa from 2013 to 2017 under former President Barack Obama. NBC News reported Sunday that former deputy secretary of state Antony Blinken is expected to be named secretary of state. Ambassador will be elevated to a Cabinet-level position in a Biden administration, two sources told NBC News.

Chris Christie, a longtime ally of President Donald Trump, said Sunday that the president's legal battle over the election results has reached the point of "national embarrassment" and that it's time for the president to move on. "Quite frankly, the conduct of the president's legal team has been a national embarrassment," Christie said during an interview on ABC's "This Week." It was the latest blow to the president's ongoing efforts to challenge election results. The president over the weekend expressed anger on Twitter, defending his continued legal battles and blasting Republicans who encouraged him to accept the election results. This weekend saw more elected Republicans speak out on the president's efforts, though most have yet to acknowledge Biden's victory.

Incoming White House chief of staff Ron Klain said Sunday that President-elect Joe Biden will begin announcing his Cabinet picks early this week. Klain told ABC's "This Week" that Americans will see the first of Biden's nominees on Tuesday. Last week, Biden told reporters he has settled on a Treasury secretary and would be naming that person around Thanksgiving, though he gave no indication on who that person might be. Speaking with CNN's "State of the Union," Jen Psaki, a senior Biden transition official, said she expects some Cabinet secretaries will be named this week with others to be announced the following week. That means diversity of ideology, diversity of background, and he wants to have a range of views of people at the table," Psaki said.

REUTERS/Henry Nicholls/File PhotoLONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson sought to tone down an independent report that found one of his most senior ministers had bullied staff, two media reports said on Saturday. The author of the report, the government’s ethics adviser Alex Allan, resigned. On Saturday, the Times newspaper and the BBC said Johnson had tried and failed to convince Allan to tone down his findings, particularly the assertion that Patel’s behaviour amounted to bullying. “He spoke to Alex and asked him if he’d change the tone of it. “As you would expect, the prime minister spoke to Sir Alex Allan to further his understanding of the issues.

The Prime Minister's standards advisor has resigned after Boris Johnson overruled him and refused to sack Home Secretary Priti Patel after a damning report found that she had been guilty of bullying staff. Johnson has refused to sack Patel, despite the foreword to the ministerial code, signed off by Johnson last year, stating that 'there must be no bullying and no harassment.' However, a spokesperson for the prime minister said that while the prime minister "loathes" bullying he considered Patel's apology to be "full and frank" and that the matter should end there. Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesperson on Friday said Patel would not be sacked because she had apologised. The Prime Minister did come to a different view, having weighed up all the different factors."

Musallam acknowledged, however, that more research is needed on spinal decompression in general. Chiropractors often use the same claims about spinal decompression devices as the manufacturers — sometimes even going beyond them. So how to tell if those treated with spinal decompression would have improved without it? Likewise, the FTC has not issued any warning letters to manufacturers of spinal decompression devices over the past two decades or taken other public action. Six of the seven found no difference between those who got spinal decompression and those who did not.

UK inflation ticks higher as pandemic pushes up some prices

Unlike last year, food prices rose in October when people stocked up on potatoes and fruit. In that case, Dales said inflation could rise to 3% or 4%, pushed higher by a fall in the value of sterling. But the likelihood of an incomplete economic recovery would probably leave underlying inflation weak, he said. Earlier this month the Bank of England said it expected to hit its 2% inflation target in two years’ time. Recreation and culture represented the biggest drag on inflation last month, as prices of package holidays and cinema outings fell.

Since March, the cruise industry has been hemorrhaging money, turning a high seas cash cow into a maritime money pit. Luxury retail at Carnival alone is thought to make up $300 million, according to one expert. When they do, expect operators to ruthlessly leverage every available revenue stream to help bolster their shaky finances, including onboard retail. Education and promotion are twin boosters of onboard retailMost lines delegate day-to-day operation of onboard retail to one of four major concessionaires. The full resumption of operations is likely to prove beneficial to onboard retail, too, as historian Allan Jordan pointed out.

Tops 100,000 New Cases in a Day for the First Time In the aftermath of a presidential election in which the pandemic was a top issue, 23 states have reached a record number of coronavirus cases in the past week. For months, Maine had among the lowest levels of transmission anywhere in the country, but new cases there have more than tripled. As states report new cases unevenly from day to day, seven-day averages are a more reliable gauge of trends than an individual day’s figures are. Surges in coronavirus cases in the Midwest could foreshadow a new round of jobless claims if indoor dining is further curtailed. On a seasonally adjusted basis, new state claims totaled 751,000, significantly lower than after the coronavirus pandemic first struck but still extraordinarily high by historical standards.

Allan Maman, a 21-year-old who didn't go to college, is the brainchild behind many of the memes used by the presidential campaigns of Andrew Yang and Mike Bloomberg. In an interview with Business Insider, Maman revealed his career in meme-making, and how it started with cold emails. Allan Maman, a 21-year-old who didn't go to college, is the brainchild behind many of the memes used by the presidential campaigns of Andrew Yang and Mike Bloomberg. But that was before the now 21-year-old took the digital reins of first Andrew Yang and then Mike Bloomberg's presidential campaigns. "Even people that were anti-Bloomberg or anti-or pro-Trump were tweeting, 'Oh this is actually a funny meme,'" Maman said.
