One Answer to America’s Recycling Problems—Make Big Brands Pay
  + stars: | 2020-12-05 | by ( Saabira Chaudhuri | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
Who should pay to recycle discarded cereal boxes, drinks bottles and detergent containers? The makers of such products have long fought efforts to make them pay for the cost of dealing with packaging waste. Now, trade groups that represent companies like Procter & Gamble Co. and PepsiCo Inc. are softening that stance, as consumers become more concerned about plastic waste and municipalities struggle to cover the costs of their recycling programs. Such rules could help pay for curbside collection and sorting infrastructure, and spur companies to design packaging that is easier to recycle, lawmakers say. Ninety two recycling programs have been eliminated in the U.S. since late 2017, according to the Recycling Partnership, a nonprofit.

REUTERS/Jorge Duenes/File PhotoThe moves come even as Democratic President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to rescind many of Trump’s immigration policies. The Trump administration argued in a proposed version of the regulation released in October that the change is needed to better protect U.S. workers. A federal judge on Tuesday blocked two different fast-tracked Trump rules targeting the H-1B program. After the ruling, the Trump administration said it would still consider ending the program and then issued an order that narrowed its scope. Even though a federal judge ruled against that move in November, the administration could try other last-minute avenues to hamper the program.

FILE PHOTO: Representations of virtual currency Bitcoin and U.S. dollar banknotes are seen in this picture illustration taken January 27, 2020. It is North American investors who have been the bigger winners in the 165% rally this year. Weekly net inflows of bitcoin - a proxy for new buyers - to platforms serving mostly North American users have jumped over 7,000 times this year to over 216,000 bitcoin worth $3.4 billion in mid-November, data compiled for Reuters shows. Others also point out that cryptocurrency trading is highly opaque compared to traditional assets and patchily regulated, making comprehensive data on the emerging sector rare. Nonetheless, Chainalysis found North American trading volumes at major exchanges - those with the most blockchain activity - had eclipsed East Asia’s this year.

DealBook: How to Fix America As we face so many challenges, we asked top experts for one idea we could do right now to make the country a better place. To do so, we need a program that makes every American an owner of the compound growth in value of corporate America. The government could fund investment accounts for every child born in America, a program we could call Birthright. Nowhere in the United States is this more evident than in the education children receive. If we are going to break the cycle of poverty, we must reimagine education in America.

The Social Life of Forests

The Social Life of Forests Trees appear to communicate and cooperate through subterranean networks of fungi. The planted saplings had plenty of space, and they received more light and water than trees in old, dense forests. “That tree is feeding these seedlings.”The trees, plants, funghi and microbes in forests are so thoroughly connected some scientists describe them as superorganisms. The emerging understanding of trees as social creatures has urgent implications for how we manage forests. Through a process called horizontal gene transfer, fungi, plants and animals — including humans — have continuously exchanged DNA with bacteria and viruses.

Truvada currently costs American users roughly $1,700 a month; Teva’s generic, which debuted in October, is marketed for around $1,455 per month. Gilead's all-but-proprietary access to sell Truvada is the equivalent of Hershey’s controlling who has access to chocolate milk. Meanwhile, generic versions of Truvada — Ricovir, Tavin-EM, or Tenof-EM — elsewhere in the world cost $210 to $720 per year. (Until Teva’s generic debuted, Gilead owned 100 percent of the Truvada market in the U.S, pulling in roughly $3 billion a year.) The problem with patents thus persists because toxic agents in soulless systems have created a ruthless market for its ostensible solutions.

If you’ve ever seen the work of the conceptual artist Jenny Holzer, you get a sense of how it might work. Her project is interrupted when a classmate discovers one of the notebooks and shares it with their class. Some entries are philosophical, but her classmates mostly notice the takedowns: “JANIE GETS STRANGER EVERY YEAR”; “TODAY A NEW BOY ARRIVED. HE IS SO DULL NO ONE CAN REMEMBER HIS NAME.” They ostracize Harriet, but she refuses to end her mission of self-enlightenment.

Mortgage boom risks coming home to roost for Brazil's banks

Buying is now far more competitive and each percentage point drop in interest rates brings a mortgage within reach of 2.8 million more families, Brazil’s construction association says. So those individuals not hit by the pandemic kept their acquisition plans,” Cristiane Portella, head of Brazil mortgage association, Abecip, said. But banks and homebuilders say those mistakes will not be repeated amid low interest rates and new rules on repossession. Unlike the last real estate crisis, housing prices and interest rates are at a low,” analyst Fabio Fonseca, a partner at JGP Gestão de Recursos, said. “Low interest rates have made house financing so much cheaper that demand is huge even considering only very good payers,” Albuquerque said.

For “There Was Jesus,” which was recorded last June, Williams tells me he “would have been thrilled” even if Parton had followed the typical procedure of recording her backing track independently and sending it to him. PEOPLE WANT HER gifts, her glow, her time; and Parton, who, as she says, “loves everybody and wants everybody to love me,” is often happy to oblige. Even I was not immune to the desire for a little more Dolly. Still, I like to think that in that extra, unscheduled 10 minutes, Parton was able to sit down by herself somewhere to write something — or rest. Makeup: Dolly Parton.

More than 40 million Americans have student loan debt, and outstanding student loans nationwide total more than $1.5 trillion. "The moment that I finally get my winnings, my plan is to pay off my student loan debt," Leake said. Like most borrowers, Leake has not paid his federal student loan bills since then. In March, the Department of Education suspended federal student loan debt payments, paused accruing interest and stopped collections on defaulted federal loans as part of the federal CARES Act. Or, President-elect Joe Biden may forgive some federal student loan debt when he takes office.

Of the myriad treasures that might draw a sightseeing car lover to Detroit, one potential attraction is notably missing: a major public museum collection dedicated to the automobile. A measure of relief from that drought has arrived in the form of “Detroit Style: Car Design in the Motor City, 1950-2020,” an exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts that opened this month and runs through next June. Paintings and sculptures intended to illuminate the relationship of art and car culture over the past 70 years will also be on display. Despite the location of its stately Beaux-Arts home on Woodward Avenue, a major artery of all things automotive in Detroit, the D.I.A. The last major exhibition of cars within the museum’s walls was a design retrospective in the 1980s that spanned the era from 1925 to 1950.

The job and wage growth that President Trump hoped would propel him to a second term was particularly strong in metropolitan America. Yet the Americans who live where the economy is thriving most—in the nation’s cities and their surrounding communities—voted to reject the president.

He carried Florida, but voters in and around the state’s largest city, Jacksonville, voted Democratic for the first time since 1976. Phoenix’s county...

European Council President Charles Michel congratulated Biden on his election and, in a 20-minute call on Monday evening, invited him to a special meeting in 2021 with EU heads in the bloc’s hub Brussels, which is also home to NATO headquarters. “During the call President Michel proposed to rebuild a strong transatlantic alliance based on common interests and shared values,” Michel’s office said in a statement. “He welcomed the strong commitment of President-elect Biden to America’s allies and his support for European cooperation.”As the EU grapples with the historic setback of Brexit, the bloc’s statement also highlighted Biden’s support for preserving peace and stability on the sensitive Irish border despite Britain leaving the EU. Biden has warned London it must honour its 2020 Brexit divorce deal with the EU as it protects peace on the island of Ireland, or else there will be no U.S. trade deal for Britain.

A new report by Oceana, a conservation group, illustrates some of what we know about how plastic affects sea turtles and marine mammals in United States waters. The authors focused on sea turtles and marine mammals for practical reasons. These animals are federally protected, so when they are found in distress or wash up dead on a beach, responders are required to document it. But the report notes that the number is “a gross underestimate” because humans observe a tiny fraction of animal deaths in the ocean. Even so, of the nation’s 23 coastal states, it found cases in 21.
