Grocery Courier Boxed to Go Public in SPAC Deal
  + stars: | 2021-06-14 | by ( Jaewon Kang | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -0.50   time to read: +1 min
Grocery courier Boxed Inc. said it would go public through a merger with a special-purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, capitalizing on delivery demand that swelled during the Covid-19 pandemic. Boxed and Seven Oaks Acquisition Corp. said the deal would value the combined company at nearly $900 million and provide money to serve more households and businesses that started ordering groceries online during the pandemic. Mr. Huang started Boxed in 2013 from his two-car garage in New Jersey, where he and three co-founders would buy and ship groceries themselves. Today Boxed delivers groceries and other bulky items such as toilet paper and office supplies from fulfillment centers to consumers and businesses across the country. Mr. Huang said he expects shoppers to continue trying new products and a wider range of services via delivery.

George Frey/Getty ImagesChef Cory LaFranchi relocated from Seattle to St. George in August. The Keller Williams realtor Jeremy Larkin said many were likely moving to St. George in hopes of seeing their own values reflected. LaFranchi told the local outlet St. George News that he moved mainly to be closer to family and take advantage of obvious cost-of-living differences. "In St. George, they're $900." Every listed property in and around St. George is attracting multiple over-asking bids, Larkin said.

Google and Facebook accounted for 54% of U.S. digital advertising revenue in 2020, according to eMarketer, a market research company. Under the Facebook Journalism Project, for instance, Reuters received funding to develop a digital media training course for journalists. Both Facebook and Google have made contributions to the news industry apart from the $600 million. Both Facebook and Google say publishers benefit just from using their platforms, which deliver traffic that helps drive advertising revenue and subscriptions. The Seattle Times publisher said his paper has participated in programs backed by Google and Facebook.

Nevada on Friday banned schools from using "racially discriminatory mascots." The new law also bans the use of "sundown sirens," which were once used to kick non-white people out of town, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Even after "sundown town" laws were repealed, some places continued to play the evening sirens. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, signed into law on Friday a bill that bans "racially discriminatory mascots" and "sundown sirens," which were once blasted nightly to tell non-white residents to leave town. The legislation, Assembly Bill 88, prohibits schools and universities from using "any name, logo, mascot, song, or other identifier that is racially discriminatory or contains racially discriminatory language or imagery," according to the bill.

University of South Carolina President Bob Caslen, the former superintendent of the US Military Academy at West Point, has admitted to plagiarizing remarks by retired Adm. William McRaven during commencement speeches at graduation ceremonies last week.

In normal times, a month during which the economy added as many jobs as it did in April would be considered good. The Labor Department on Friday reported that the U.S. added 266,000 jobs last month, adjusted for seasonal swings, leaving the country with 8.2 million fewer jobs than it had before the Covid-19 crisis struck last year. The unemployment rate rose to 6.1% from 6%. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal had expected the report to show an increase of one million jobs with the unemployment rate slipping to 5.8%. Food and beverage stores—the supermarkets and such that saw sales jump as Americans cooked more at home—shed 49,000 jobs.

Many economists had been expecting an even higher number amid signs that the U.S. economy was roaring back to life. Dow Jones estimates had been for 1 million new jobs and an unemployment rate of 5.8%. So there are a lot of jobs out there, there is just still not a lot of labor supply." Professional and business services saw a steep 111,000 decline in jobs in temporary help, while support services lost 15,000 positions.

A white California "mom influencer" who said a Latino couple tried to kidnap her children was charged after police said she fabricated the story. Katie Sorensen, of Sonoma, was charged Thursday with two counts of making false reports, the Sonoma County District Attorney's Office said. The Petaluma police released a photo of a man and woman but cleared the couple after speaking with them. Sorensen, who describes herself on social media as a "mom influencer," went on to allege that the couple made comments about what her children looked like as they followed her. In the video, Sorensen said she finished her shopping, paid for the items and began walking to her car when she noticed the couple was still following her.

Times Insider explains who we are and what we do, and delivers behind-the-scenes insights into how our journalism comes together. Today, the Sunday print edition of The New York Times is a thick bundle of news and features, with enough information and diversions to while away the day. In fact, for the first 10 years of publication, The Times did not print a Sunday edition at all. “The New-York Daily Times is published every morning, (Sunday excepted),” read the first words of the first issue, on Sept. 18, 1851. Many of the Sunday newspapers printed in the United States early in the 19th century were weekly editions.

A former police officer indicted by a Kentucky grand jury for his role in the botched, deadly raid on the home of Breonna Taylor will be tried in 2022, nearly six months later than originally planned. During the early morning raid, officers opened fire after Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired a gun toward the door to ward off what he believed was a criminal intruder. Authorities initially charged Walker with attempted murder on a police officer—Sgt. Andy Beshear signed a partial ban on no-knock warrants of the type used to raid Taylor's home. Cosgrove and Joshua Jaynes, who is alleged to have lied about Taylor on the application for a warrant, were terminated in January.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville’s police chief has reprimanded the sergeant who was shot during the raid on Breonna Taylor’s apartment for an email he sent that was critical of department leadership. Jonathan Mattingly sent the late-night email in September, writing that he and other officers “did the legal, moral and ethical thing” the night of the deadly raid. Mattingly was shot in the leg during the March 13, 2020, raid by Taylor’s boyfriend, who said he feared an intruder was breaking into the apartment. Two officers who fired their guns the night of the raid have been dismissed. One of them, Brett Hankison, is facing wanton endangerment charges for putting Taylor’s neighbors in danger.

(CNN) Anyone with a taste for Cold War dramas will find an intriguing addition to their cinematic library with "The Courier," a fact-based story featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as a Hitchcockian everyman who becomes the unlikely conduit to a Soviet leaker of secrets in 1960. It's the kind of historical tale that, after the closing crawl, will likely send more than a few viewers running to Google to read more. But they need a way to gain access to what Penkovsky knows, using someone "who the KGB won't suspect" in order to collect his secrets. They wind up approaching Cumberbatch's Greville Wynne, a rather staid family man who periodically travels to Moscow on business. "I'm just a salesman," Wynne protests, and he appears to be genuinely concerned and apprehensive, before finally agreeing.

Non-priority people are getting vaccinated ahead of schedule when pharmacies have extra doses thawed. Across the country, some non-healthcare workers are getting their COVID-19 vaccines earlier than expected because pharmacies have extra doses left over. Some providers have taken matters into their own hands to ensure that no vaccine doses go unused. In other cases, confusion about doses led to misallocation of vaccinesNot all instances of people receiving extra doses have been happy accidents. At Stanford Hospital last week, some non-clinical affiliates got vaccinated during a walk-in period because they were under the impression there were extra doses.

Biden’s Nominees Face Narrow Path in Senate

WASHINGTON—Some of President-elect Joe Biden’s nominees are set to face a narrow path to confirmation, with potential delays that could result in his key cabinet picks being seated later than is traditional for incoming administrations. While many of Mr. Biden’s picks have drawn bipartisan support, several stand to face opposition from top Republicans, and they will have to make it through committee for a full Senate vote, where a simple majority is needed. GOP criticism has been especially vocal toward Neera Tanden, Mr. Biden’s choice to lead the Office of Management and Budget, and Xavier Becerra, his pick for Health and Human Services secretary. Mr. Biden’s nominees will need at least a small amount of GOP support, both in committee and on the Senate floor, if Republicans retain narrow control of the chamber after the Jan. 5 Senate runoff elections in Georgia. If Republicans keep the majority, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would bring Mr. Biden’s nominees to the Senate floor for votes by the full chamber should they pass through committee.
