Opinion | The Supreme Court’s Ruling on Limiting the Size of Religious Services
  + stars: | 2020-11-30 | by ( ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.96   time to read: +2 min
Does the Constitution prohibit necessary emergency regulations during such a crisis? It seems obvious to me that no governor should have the right to limit or suppress a constitutionally protected activity. Jane BednoMundelein, Ill.To the Editor:There is no legal, or religious, construct that could justify permitting large gatherings of people during a deadly pandemic. This is not a First Amendment issue, just as falsely screaming “fire!” in a crowded movie theater is not an exercise of free speech. My response to people who demand religious freedom in our current high-risk environment is “Your religious liberty ends where the danger to my health begins.”

President Donald Trump on Thanksgiving held his first press conference since losing the presidential election. But for the focus became Trump's tiny desk, rather than his groundless attacks of the US electoral system. Trump used the event to stir baseless allegations of electoral fraud, and snapped at a reporter who asked questions. Others noticed uncanny similarities between Thursday's press conference and a 2017 "Saturday Night Live" which used a tiny desk as a punchline. It is not clear why Trump used that desk for the press conference, instead of holding it in one of the White House's briefing rooms.

Why Pizza Hut fell behind in the pizza wars
  + stars: | 2020-11-25 | by ( Shawn Baldwin | ) www.cnbc.com sentiment -0.98   time to read: +1 min
With consumers stuck at home ordering pizza, you might think Pizza Hut's sales would be soaring. Pizza Hut's U.S. business has benefited from the trend, but the 60-year-old brand known for its dine-in restaurants still faces significant challenges, according to analysts. In 2017, Domino's overtook Pizza Hut as the largest pizza chain by global sales. In July 2020, Pizza Hut's largest U.S. franchisee, NPC International, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after struggling under the burden of $1 billion in debt. What went wrong at Pizza Hut and will the chain's takeout and delivery service be enough to offset the decline of the dine-in restaurant experience?

The once-grand Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza mall in Los Angeles seemed like a prime target for investors. That was before it got caught up in a combustible debate over local ownership, race and economic development. The surrounding neighborhoods offered a potential redevelopment gold mine, including one of the nation’s largest concentrations of affluent and middle-class Black households. In late April, private-equity company CIM Group agreed to pay around $130 million for the property, which fronts on West Martin Luther King...

The Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating the "suspicious circumstances" of the teen's death but has released few details. So he and Nelson went to the Baldwin Police Department, where a report was taken, Haley said. Charles' parents are distraught and did not want to be interviewed Friday, Haley said, adding that they had given him permission to speak on their behalf. Charles' parents said they did not know the family and had not given them permission to take him, Haley said. Charles' parents, the Louisiana NAACP and the state's American Civil Liberties Union chapter are calling for an independent investigation.

Why Under Armour is struggling despite the athleisure boom
  + stars: | 2020-11-12 | by ( Shawn Baldwin | ) www.cnbc.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: 1 min
As consumers spend more time at home, ditching work clothes and suits for yoga pants and sweats, you would think that sports apparel brand Under Armour would be thriving. But the company that urged athletes to "Fight on Together" has fallen on tough times. While the brand's sweat-wicking performance gear is popular among athletes, it might not be resonating with consumers the way it used to. Analysts say an athleisure boom is being fueled by a desire for comfort and a newfound interest in health and wellness. So can Under Armour rebuild its momentum before it's too late?

Former Vice President Joe Biden won, but President Donald Trump still will not concede. What he's doing is extremely anti-democratic and contrary to our stated values, but Trump is not a fluke of American politics. On Thursday night before all the ballots were counted, President Donald Trump attempted to make what one sociologist calls "an autocratic breakthrough." Trump made it clear that he would hold on to the White House by hook or by crook — American democracy be damned. This legacy didn't just disenfranchise black Americans, it corrupted white Americans.

Over the past four years, undocumented immigrants have been vilified by the right in boring and classically genocidal ways. Donald Trump used immigrants to drum up support, telling people we were coming in caravans to sell them drugs, take their jobs and inspire their children to tattoo their faces. Under his administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement rounded up law-abiding immigrants who’d lived here for years. Because there is a belief, even on the left, that because we chose to come here, we had agency in our own desecration. The past four years have turned me into a writer of immigration, into a symbol of the undocumented migrant.

Although the Democratic Party’s left and center wings are jostling for position in many ways, the new Senate group suggests that this is an issue that both can agree on. Ms. Warren and Ms. Baldwin are among the most prominent progressives in the Senate, with track records of aggressively trying to rein in Wall Street. In particular, Ms. Warren (who may reportedly push to become Mr. Biden’s Treasury secretary) has introduced the Accountable Capitalism Act to push big companies to consider all stakeholders, not just investors. “We will work together on ways we can fundamentally reform corporate governance in America.”They may be pushing on an open door. Virus fears are dragging markets down in early trading, with global stocks on track to record their worst week since March.

Covid-19 has thrown the gym industry into a tailspin, wreaking havoc on some of the biggest names in fitness including Gold's Gym and 24 Hour Fitness, which both had to file for bankruptcy protection. Planet Fitness also has had to shut its doors for months but unlike its rivals, the company is poised to sprint past the competition once the pandemic ends. Gyms were forced to shut down in March 2020 to try to curb the spread of Covid-19, crippling the fitness industry, which is a $32 billion market in the U.S., with more than 41,000 gyms and 64 million members. Before the coronavirus pandemic hit, Planet Fitness reported 53 consecutive quarters of positive same-store sales growth. So despite the dire situation in the gym industry can Planet Fitness actually come out ahead?

The launch of Popeyes' chicken sandwich was an inflection point for the fast-food company and kicked off what industry insiders have referred to as the chicken sandwich wars. For much of Popeyes' history its Louisiana-style menu featured items like fried chicken, chicken tenders and fried shrimp. But after nearly 50 years, this was its first-ever chicken sandwich sold nationwide. Hype around the chicken sandwich and a lighthearted Twitter spat with Chick-fil-A turned the menu item into an overnight sensation. Can a simple chicken sandwich revitalize a company that once filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and is trailing its two major rivals, Chick-fil-A and KFC?
