This year’s holiday shopping season is expected to bring in record sales — forcing many retail workers to the front lines of the pandemic, often without hazard pay, despite another surge of coronavirus infections. “Retail workers experience heightened stress and pressure during the holiday season, even in normal times. While this might come as good news for brick-and-mortar stores that have been crushed by the pandemic, retail workers are nervous about the potential onslaught of eager shoppers — many of whom don’t always follow social distancing and mask rules. But among those companies, workers received an average increase in pay of just $1.11 per hour since the pandemic began. “They’re not worried about safety.”Many retail workers say they have no choice but to risk getting sick.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As President-elect Joe Biden builds his economic team in the coming days, some influential lawmakers are urging him to choose Katherine Tai, the Democratic trade counsel on the House of Representatives’ Ways and Means Committee, as U.S. trade representative. The job, sometimes called the “trade czar,” is expected to be a lynchpin position as Biden pledges to reverse predecessor Donald Trump’s “America First” policies, build jobs at home, and punish Beijing for anti-competitive trade practices. A Yale and Harvard-educated Chinese-American who speaks fluent Mandarin and taught university English for two years in Guangzhou, Tai also headed China trade enforcement at the U.S. Trade Representative’s office (USTR) from 2011 to 2014, litigating trade violation cases before the World Trade Organization. Tai, 45, did not respond to a request for comment and a spokeswoman for the House Ways and Means Committee said she was not granting interviews at this time. Tai faces stiff competition for the USTR post from Michael Wessel, a member of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, and Representative Jimmy Gomez, a Ways and Means Committee Democrat from California.

On evening walks with his wife in the suburbs of Omaha, Neb., Jay Jackson, a registered Republican and an Air Force veteran, made the decision to vote for Democrat Joe Biden for president and support Republicans for all other offices. It took some persuading to get his wife on board, he said. But eventually, the two put up a Biden-Harris yard sign, along with others for GOP candidates Rep. Don Bacon and Sen. Ben Sasse.

“The Queen’s Gambit,” Netflix’s fictional drama about a female chess prodigy, has pulled off an unlikely gambit of its own: It’s prompted one of the biggest surges in the popularity of chess among Americans since the days of Bobby Fischer’s dominance in the 1970s. The show has become Netflix’s most widely viewed scripted limited series, with 62 million households tuning in during the first 28 days after its Oct. 23 debut, the streaming company said. (Netflix now counts two minutes of watching as a view.) The impact is clear:...

IN AMERICA, pumpkin pie is nearly as entrenched a ritual as apple pie—despite the fact that so many people don’t actually like it. Most of my family falls squarely in that camp, so I’ve experimented with alternatives over the years. Finally I stumbled upon an old Burgundian cookbook with a recipe for a “flamusse” of pumpkin. A flamusse is a custardy regional specialty perhaps best described as a cross between a soufflé, a flan and a clafoutis. It’s almost always made with sliced apples, so this pumpkin...

Don Hackett, founder and publisher of CoronavirusToday, said that cold chain vaccine storage itself is a standard requirement and shouldn't pose a challenge to U.S. hospitals or pharmacies. "In the developing world, cold chain requirements may be a show-stopper," he said. "Cold chain distribution in pharma is complicated even in normal times," David Gitlin, president and CEO of Carrier Global Corp. told CNBC. "Our healthcare and pharmacy supply chain knows how to properly store, distribute and administer these kinds of vaccines," he said. According to an HHS spokesperson, OWS will also ensure that administration sites have the cold-storage resources they need, including fresh dry ice to extend vaccine storage.

Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster

The book business has seen wave after wave of consolidation in the past decade, with the merger of Penguin and Random House in 2013, News Corp’s purchase of the romance publisher Harlequin, and Hachette Book Group’s acquisition of Perseus Books. This fall, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced it was exploring a sale of its trade publishing division, and could be an attractive target for a large publishing company like Macmillan or Hachette. Founded in 1924 by Richard L. Simon and M. Lincoln Schuster, the company began as a publisher of crossword puzzles. The past year has been tumultuous for Simon & Schuster. In May, Carolyn Reidy, the company’s beloved chief executive, died suddenly, and was later replaced by Jonathan Karp, who was formerly the publisher of Simon & Schuster, the company’s flagship house among dozens of imprints.

And during the entire glorious four years, the national red ink went from $14.4 trillion to $21.1 trillion. First, because he seems very bad at handling money, and second, because he doesn’t really intend to go back to a civilian life. There has been only one president in U.S. history who lost re-election and then ran and won four years later. But if you get a request for a Donald Trump Library contribution, do not feel compelled to follow through.

Electronic or paper poll books are used to check if a voter is registered to vote at a particular location. Increasing numbers of states already use a version of such digital poll books, but there needs to be a national standard for their certification and security, along with national funding. Even with a system that’s expected to work well, we need to know that it has worked well. That’s why we should have risk-limiting audits after each election after the counting is complete but before the result is certified. In such audits, a small number of randomly selected ballots are examined and compared with the already reported results.

Credit Agricole Italia had held preliminary talks with Banco BPM, Italy’s No.3 bank and a long-standing commercial partner, but they stalled, sources had said. “We were in an ambiguous situation, we had this long-term ‘bancassurance’ accord but it was difficult to pursue synergies,” Credit Agricole Italia CEO Giampiero Maioli told a press briefing.

Indeed, despite President Trump’s loss here, the early days of campaigning in the runoff races look much like the months that preceded them. The incumbent Republican senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, have filled the airwaves with scathing attack ads seeking to paint Democrats as radicals fundamentally opposed to the country’s core principles and warning that Democratic sway over the Senate would usher in a wave of socialism. The two senators have not aired a single positive advertisement between them, and neither have two outside groups supporting them, according to the ad tracking firm Advertising Analytics. The breathless ad campaigns and demonizing of liberals reflect the stakes for the Republican Party and its voters as they try to deny Democrats total control of the White House and Congress. Mr. Perdue said this past week at a rally in Perry, Ga., that his Democratic opponent, Jon Ossoff, was a “trust fund socialist who lives off his family’s money making documentary movies that no one’s ever watched.”

Virgil Carter was a graduate business student at Northwestern in 1970 who spent hours a day on an enormous computer in a dingy old room where he coded thousands of punch cards. His goal was to gain a greater understanding of his day job—as an NFL quarterback. Half a century later, quarterbacks make tens of millions of dollars per year and don’t spend their offseasons in grad school. The football world, though, is still catching up to Virgil Carter. The data he crunched is the foundation of the NFL’s analytics revolution....

Powerful American technology and its potential misuse cut to the heart of the decisions the Biden administration must face as it tackles the country’s increasingly bitter relationship with China. The Trump administration last year banned the sale of advanced semiconductors and other technology to Chinese companies implicated in national security or humans rights issues. A crucial early question for Mr. Biden will be whether to firm up, loosen or rethink those restrictions. The chips in the Urumqi complex, for example, were sold by Intel and Nvidia to Sugon, the Chinese company backing the center. Sugon is an important supplier to Chinese military and security forces, but it also makes computers for ordinary companies.
