On Friday, Royal Caribbean announced that all those who were in close contact with the two guests tested negative for the virus. The discovery of the cases is an early test of whether the cruise operator's safety protocols are effective in detecting the virus aboard the ship. The company's first sailing out of a port in the U.S. will be the Celebrity Edge, which departs June 26 out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A passenger aboard the ship told CNBC that the mood aboard the ship had not changed and normal activities have continued. There had been several high-profile outbreaks aboard cruise ships last year.

read more"The Fed is getting some traction on its message that the inflation pressures are transitory," said Colin Asher, senior economist at Mizuho in London. Fed officials have repeatedly tamped down fears of inflation running persistently higher than its 2% target, while pointing out they have tools to keep it under control. The statement following the Fed policymakers' regular meeting next week and comments from Fed Chair Jerome Powell will be closely watched for the central bank's latest view on inflation. A widely watched barometer of inflation expectations, the breakeven inflation rate (BEI) for 10-year Treasury Inflation Protected Securities , measuring the difference between 10-year TIPS real yields and the 10-year note yield, was at 2.35%, near a two-month low of 2.326% hit on Wednesday. That indicates that markets do not see inflation averaging much over the Fed's 2% target over the next decade.

A former Subway employee who started at the company in the 1980s said DeLuca was obsessed with opening stores. That included the wives of Subway franchisees, this person and others said. Shortly after DeLuca died, Subway's board, led by Buck and Elisabeth DeLuca, hired Bain and Co. to assist in a turnaround. Buck, Elisabeth, and their sons restructured the company in 2018 and continue to steer the sinking ship, but mostly behind the scenes. Elisabeth moved to Florida after DeLuca died, and quietly started The Elisabeth C. DeLuca Foundation last year.

Elon Musk's Boring Co. Las Vegas tunnel made its debut on Tuesday. Officials in Fort Lauderdale, Florida are hopeful it could also soon have a tunnel, NBC News reported. As Elon Musk's Boring Co. tunnel in Las Vegas opens, industry experts are skeptical the company would be able to complete similar projects in other cities, NBC News reported. In the process of launching the Las Vegas tunnel, officials from cities in Florida have visited, including Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, as they hope to have tunnels installed in their cities. While the Boring Co. projects haven't materialized in several cities, NBC reported that officials in Fort Lauderdale remain optimistic.

A Spirit Airlines jet comes in for a landing at McCarran International Airport on May 25, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Spirit Airlines is planning to expand to Miami International Airport later this year, increasing competition among airlines for Florida travelers. Budget airline Spirit, based in Miramar, Florida, said late Tuesday that it plans to offer flights starting in October from 30 cities, including New York, Cleveland and Denver. Southwest Airlines last year unveiled plans to start Miami service as carriers looked for popular tourist destinations and took advantage of a lull in demand in many other destinations. Spirit said it is not planning to reduce flying at its hub at Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

However, Celebrity's proof of vaccination policy violates Florida's ban on vaccine passports, the state says. But in April, DeSantis issued an executive order banning vaccine passports and local businesses, such as cruise lines, from requiring proof of vaccination. And earlier this month, the state passed a new law again barring vaccine passports by July 1. Christina Pushaw, DeSantis' press secretary, says Celebrity's COVID-19 vaccine mandate "violates the spirit" of the executive order and contravenes the state's ban on vaccine passports. "Allowing companies like Celebrity Cruises to require 'vaccine passports' for customers would mean tolerating discrimination by private businesses, which is unacceptable in Florida."

In Texas, public universities can’t require a vaccination, but private ones can. In New York, public universities cannot allow for religious exemptions, while a majority of the state’s private universities can.

Flight attendants had to relocate multiple passengers nearby and the captain eventually diverted the flight to Oklahoma City, where police took the man into custody. According to the FAA, a flight attendant noticed the man holding several mini alcohol bottles that the flight crew had not served to him. Later in the flight, the FAA said she sat in an exit row while waiting to use the restroom. When a flight attendant told her she couldn't sit in the exit row, she screamed in the flight attendant's face while not wearing her mask. Earlier this year, the FAA tightened restrictions on unruly passengers who cause disturbances and refuse to follow crew members' instructions on commercial flights.

"A remote work environment has allowed us to expand our talent pool, contributing to our team's diversity," she said. One group of workers gets to experience the everyday benefits of the office, while another group experiences the everyday benefits of remote work. Buffer's 2021 "State of Remote Work Report," which interviewed 2,300 workers, showed that more than 97% would like to work remotely. But when you give them an opportunity to work where and when they feel they work best, she noted, they can show up as their full self and do their best work. For companies looking to give remote work a shot post-pandemic, Bula advised giving yourself some grace and being prepared to iterate on your model.

The Federal Aviation Administration is warning air travelers about what it describes as a dramatic increase in unruly or dangerous behavior aboard passenger airplanes. In a typical year, the transportation agency sees 100 to 150 formal cases of bad passenger behavior. In Washington, D.C., a passenger was escorted off a flight after arguing with flight attendants over the mask rule. Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants union, said airline employees have reported a wide range of troubling incidents. “What we have seen on our planes is flight attendants being physically assaulted, pushed, choked,” Nelson said.

(Reuters) - Wall Street’s main indexes rose on Monday after a week of largely upbeat earnings strengthened expectations of sustained profit growth for companies, while some high-flying growth stocks lagged a broader rally. Nine of the 11 major S&P 500 sectors climbed in early trading, with economy-sensitive cyclical stocks, including financials, energy, industrials, and materials, leading the gains. Megacap technology stocks, including Apple Inc, Amazon.com Inc, Alphabet Inc, and Microsoft Corp, traded mixed despite posting largely upbeat results last week. “The catalysts are strong for a sell-in-May strategy with the hot start to 2021,” said Jeff Carbone, managing partner for Cornerstone Wealth. The S&P index recorded 61 new 52-week highs and no new low, while the Nasdaq recorded 77 new highs and 26 new lows.

Roger Stone, longtime political ally of U.S. President Donald Trump, departs following a status hearing in the criminal case against him brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller at U.S. District Court in Washington, March 14, 2019. The Department of Justice on Friday sued Roger Stone, the loyal former advisor to ex-President Donald Trump, alleging he and his wife owe nearly $2 million in unpaid federal taxes and other fees. The DOJ's complaint, filed in southern Florida federal court, alleges Stone and his wife underpaid their federal income taxes for five straight years, from 2007 and 2011. The lawsuit also alleges Stone did not pay his full tax bill in 2018, when he filed separately from his spouse. "The Stones used Drake Ventures for an improper purpose and harm to the United States," according to the complaint.

Some said founder Jordan Zimmerman told staff he'd replace them with newly let-go people if they didn't work harder. Two current employees also told Insider they witnessed group creative directors making junior employees cry. Those people said Zimmerman told employees that Pence said the virus wasn't as bad as it was being reported and that younger people are less likely to be affected. For many companies, reopening has presented an opportunity to redefine when and where employees work. "As an employee, you know the agency's culture sucks, but not being exposed to it as directly helps," the first current employee said.

T-MobileVirtual pay TV strugglesWhile new streaming services launch left and right, T-Mobile is pulling the plug on TVision, its 5-month-old attempt to retain customers with a $10 per month streaming service, Claire Atkinson reported. Key points:Its demise shows the challenges of the virtual pay TV services model that has struggled to find a profitable business. This may have surprised people who may have thought the blood-letting was over after last spring when advertisers hit the breaks, leaving many ad-dependent media companies to cut costs. But the challenges these companies faced aren't new:Vice Media and HuffPost, along with other VC-backed media companies, have struggled to reach their backers' expectations. Some digital media companies could get a lifeline by going public through SPACs.

College students have begun to arrive in the South Florida area for the annual spring break ritual. The U.S. could suffer another surge in Covid-19 cases unless pandemic safety measures are maintained, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Friday. The nation is recording a seven-day average of about 57,000 new Covid-19 cases per day, a 7% jump over the last week, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said during a White House news briefing on the pandemic. New hospitalizations are up "slightly" at roughly 4,700 admissions per day, she said. "We have seen cases and hospital admissions move from historic declines to stagnations and increases.

Local leaders are in talks with Elon Musk 's The Boring Company to build a two-mile tunnel underground from downtown to the beach and offer rides for between $5-8.

Suarez has spoken of building a "signature project" for the world with the Boring Company. Fort Lauderdale and the Boring Company are currently studying the local geology to determine what path to take, Trantalis said. The more expensive land is, the more it makes sense to utilize every square foot, whether for a train tunnel, car tunnel or sewage tunnel, he said.
