Confronts a Growing Crisis Theaters work to keep a holiday tradition going. The league got through that crisis by juggling a few teams’ schedules, but now most teams’ open dates have been exhausted. Instead, theaters are using every contagion-reduction strategy they have honed during the coronavirus pandemic: outdoor stagings, drive-in productions, street theater, streaming video, radio plays and even a do-it-yourself kit sent by mail. The local pandemic toll is jarring: During the past seven days, Miami-Dade County, recorded 49 new deaths from Covid-19, and nearly 13,000 new infections. A Miami Art Week without a big Basel party could be a possible blessing, said Mr. O’Neal, allowing the city’s own talent to take center stage and avoid being overshadowed.

Black Friday Live Updates: Holiday Shopping in a Pandemic
  + stars: | 2020-11-27 | by ( Michael Corkery | Gillian Friedman | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.64   time to read: +2 min
Now, all retailers are entering their most important time of the year — the holiday shopping season that has long revolved around Black Friday. About 59 percent of shoppers had started their holiday shopping by early November, according to the National Retail Federation. E-commerce sales are expected to grow by as much as 30 percent over last year’s holiday season, the trade group said. Whatever the size of the increase, it is remarkable on many levels that Americans, on the whole, are expected to spend more this holiday season than last. And yet, for all the upending of shopping habits this year, stores are still hoping for Black Friday crowds on Friday.

And that money, like all wealth in the United States, is extremely concentrated in the upper brackets. Mr. Jacobs, whose grandfather was a founder of Qualcomm, expects to receive up to $100 million over the course of his lifetime. Most of his fellow millennials, however, are receiving a rotten inheritance — debt, dim job prospects and a figment of a social safety net. In their time, the ever-widening gulf between the rich and poor has pushed left-wing politics back into the American political mainstream. Mr. Jacobs, as both a trust-fund kid and an anticapitalist, is in a rare position among leftists fighting against economic inequality.

Like, if you don't get an internship, you somehow feel incomplete – or as if you hadn't quite executed college properly. For example, you can join a virtual community of other college students — and communities that are specific to your field. Shuhab Elhag, a student at Howard University and an intern at the Council on Foreign Relations. As a work-from-home intern, you often don't know any other interns unless you reach out or if you happen to be assigned to work on a project together. While this will not solve all problems, your family will have a greater sense of what you are doing and hopefully give you some space to do your school and internship work.

Walt Disney Co. is planning to layoff 32,000 employees, primarily at its theme parks, as the coronavirus continues to hit the entertainment company’s businesses hard. Disney announced 28,000 job cuts in September and it expects to terminate its employees’ contracts in the first half of fiscal 2021. The company warned that it could take additional measures such as not declaring future dividends and either reducing or not making certain payments, such as contributions to its pension and postretirement medical plans. The Covid-19 pandemic has severely affected many companies globally, as government lockdowns to restrict the spread of the virus have led to the closure of leisure parks, cruise ships and movie halls. In a filing late Wednesday, Disney said it was considering additional measures such as suspending capital spending, reducing film and television content investments and implementing additional furloughs.

Professor Lazear began his professional career in 1974 as an assistant professor of economics at the University of Chicago. “He was the most natural economist I ever came into contact with,” said Paul Oyer, an economist at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. Productivity at the business soared when it shifted from paying workers an hourly wage to paying them according to the number of windshields they repaired. Professor Lazear figured out that this improvement hadn’t come about just because people had worked harder to earn more money. Professor Lazear wrote another famous paper explaining the rationale behind mandatory retirement, which was outlawed by Congress in 1986.

Politicians in Palm Springs, Calif., view “Forever Marilyn” — a giant sculpture of Marilyn Monroe, with her white skirt blown up above her waist — as a fun, nostalgic tourist attraction. But local cultural leaders are painting it as sexist and sensationalist, and they are speaking out against the city’s plans to move the sculpture to a site next to the Palm Springs Art Museum. From 2012 to 2014, the sculpture, by Seward Johnson, presided over downtown Palm Springs. “When you exit the museum, you are going to see the exposed backside of a 26-foot-tall Marilyn Monroe, including her underwear,” he explained by phone this week. In a joint op-ed published in The Desert Sun after the Council meeting, they warned that the artwork is “blatantly sexist” and “devalues the architectural brand that has been so successful at drawing tourists to Palm Springs.”

Unemployment Scam Using Inmates’ Names Costs California Hundreds of Millions

SACRAMENTO — A rash of fraudulent pandemic unemployment claims filed under the names of jail and prison inmates, including more than 100 on death row, has bilked California out of hundreds of millions of dollars, a law enforcement task force said Tuesday. In a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom, the task force, led by district attorneys from San Diego to Fresno County, asked for “significant resources” to combat “what appears to be the most significant fraud on taxpayer funds in California history,” and wrote that claims had been paid under the names of tens of thousands of incarcerated Californians. In most cases, task force members said, the payments were sent in the form of prepaid debit cards to addresses designated on the applications and later deposited to inmate accounts in jail and prisons, but in some, the benefits were sent directly to the institutions. Among the named beneficiaries: Cary Stayner, a serial killer who murdered four women near Yosemite National Park in 1999; Wayne Ford, another serial killer, who confessed to at least four murders in 1997 and 1998 in Northern California; and Isauro Aguirre, who, with his girlfriend, tortured and murdered her 8-year-old son, Gabriel Fernandez, in 2013 in Palmdale, Calif.

That is a way saying the more bad stuff that happens to you, the greater the odds are that you will develop serious mental health problems,” Taylor said. The wildfire caused the evacuation of 40,000 residents, killing four people and five are still missin.

In August 1968, Lynn Conway, a promising computer engineer at IBM in Sunnyvale, Calif., was called into the office of Gene Myron Amdahl, then the company’s director of advanced computing systems. Mr. Amdahl had been supportive when he learned that she was “undertaking a gender transition,” Ms. Conway wrote in an account, but the company’s chief executive, Thomas J. Watson Jr. was less tolerant. “I was fired,” Ms. Conway wrote. Fifty-two years later, Ms. Conway was called back to speak with IBM supervisors. This time, the setting was a virtual meeting witnessed by other company employees.

Obama also seems to have eschewed tactics embraced by other presidents who also wrote their own books. He has admitted to struggling to keep a consistent diary while in the White House, a useful aid for past presidential memoirists. Jimmy Carter drew heavily on his diaries to write “Keeping Faith,” which came out a brisk 21 months after he left office. “His discipline allowed him to write it quickly,” said Alter, the author of a new biography of Carter. Widmer then had the interviews transcribed and sent to Clinton, where they became grist as the former president wrote.
