The guidelines were released Wednesday by Getty Images, one of the world’s largest stock photo agencies, and GLAAD, a national LGBTQ advocacy organization.

Denmark went so far as to cull 17 million minks in November in response to outbreaks at more than 200 mink farms. The northern region of the country, where most fur farms lie, was placed under strict lockdowns. And across the Atlantic, mink farms in the U.S. are seeing Covid-19 spread and deaths of their own. At fur farms, minks are densely packed in conditions ripe for close contact with one another. Culling is often the answer when data on animal spread is inconclusive.

Actions Trump has taken against China include slapping elevated tariffs on Chinese goods and restricting access to the American market for some Chinese companies. Here are Yellen's previous comments on trade and China. The president often made his tariff moves unilaterally, bypassing international bodies such as the World Trade Organization. If you look at her history, she has been more moderate on China issues than most folks in the Trump administration. U.S. tariffs on ChinaWhile recognizing U.S. concerns about China, Yellen appeared skeptical that the use of tariffs would help the U.S. achieve its goals.

SINGAPORE — Asia is set to outperform the rest of the world as economies in the region look to rebound in 2021 from the coronavirus-induced slump, said the chief economist of Singapore's largest bank. "Therefore, we are actually making a fairly strong outperformance call for Asian asset classes and Asian economies in 2021 relative to the rest of the world," he added. In a report last week, Baig and other DBS strategists outlined 12 trade ideas and strategies for 2021 in rates, currencies and credit. CurrenciesThe U.S. dollar has become "less over-valued," which means it may depreciate more gradually in 2021, according to DBS. The bank has three ideas on how to trade currencies next year: Expecting a basket of high-yielding Asian currencies — the Indonesian rupiah, Philippine peso and Indian rupee — to strengthen against the greenback.

He is credited with influencing how businesses approach company culture and customer service, pioneering a philosophy of happiness above profits. Hsieh and his cofounder Alfred Lin famously maintained a focus on Zappos' culture after its sale to Amazon in 2009.

"You want to create a stronger company culture, which will make your employees and coworkers happier and create more employee engagement, leading to higher productivity," Hsieh wrote. Hsieh would give out that new version of the Zappos Culture Book to prospective employees, vendors, and even customers.

President Donald Trump has "checked out" on his Iran policy, giving Secretary of State Mike Pompeo freedom to dictate policy short of "start[ing] World World III," The Daily Beast reported, citing US officials. Trump wants to deter Iran from rejoining the 2015 nuclear deal, a key plan of Biden's incoming administration. Former US diplomats previously told Insider the November 27 hit on Iran's top nuclear scientist — believed to be perpetrated by Israel — was also designed to damage Biden's plan. One White House official told the outlet that Trump has "checked out" over Iran, handing the reigns to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other Iran hawks in the administration. But the news that Trump has given up on directing Iran policy indicates that his attention has run its course.

It's Salesforce's third massive purchase in less than three years, following the $15.3 billion deal for Tableau last year and $6.5 billion acquisition of MuleSoft in 2018. Benioff co-founded Salesforce in 1999 after 13 years at Oracle, where he became the company's youngest-ever vice president. As Benioff was getting Salesforce out of start-up mode in its early years, Ellison was turning Oracle into an M&A machine. Oracle made its biggest purchase in 2004, acquiring human resources software company PeopleSoft for $10.3 billion. The $6.5 billion Salesforce spent on MuleSoft was more than twice what it had ever paid for an acquisition.

No CFO indicated they think it is "very likely" that a corporate tax hike is coming, though a little under one-third of chief financial officers (32%) indicated they do think it is "somewhat likely" Biden achieves his corporate tax goal. Where tax policy experts think Biden can act"Absent single party control, it will be extremely challenging for the Biden Administration to legislatively roll back the 2017 tax reform," Caroline Harris, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's vice president, tax policy and economic development, and chief tax policy counsel, wrote in an email to CNBC. "Biden's biggest revenue-raisers are an increase in the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent and a provision to impose the Social Security payroll tax on wages above $400,000. Biden's plan would combine this new tax break with several corporate tax increases, including new taxes on U.S. firms with overseas income. "The consensus seems to be that Biden will attempt to raise corporate taxes and be unsuccessful in doing so.

President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to "end forever wars," but human rights groups are concerned by a lack of specifics behind this vow. Biden has been fairly silent on topics like drone strikes and air strikes, and hasn't outlined how he'd work to prevent civilian casualties. American service members are also scattered across Africa and involved in counterterrorism operations, including drone strikes, throughout the continent. "One of Biden's first steps should be to bar the CIA from carrying out drone strikes and other targeted killings. "We saw a huge increase in air strikes during the Trump administration, and a corresponding huge increase in civilians killed and injured from those air strikes," Eviatar said, noting that Amnesty documented 1,600 civilians killed from a four-month campaign in Syria alone.

The North America-based CFOs indicated the lowest level of planned spending pullbacks, with CFOs from Europe (9%) and Asia-Pacific (15%) more likely to say investment will be reduced in 2021. A significant percentage of corporate chief financial officers are making 2021 spending and hiring plans around vaccine optimism, but the current case surge in the U.S. and Europe is making a dent in confidence. In Europe, CFOs were twice as likely to say headcount would increase, at 36%, versus 18% who expect workforce reductions. Asia is the only region in which CFOs say layoffs (46%) will be more widespread than job additions (31%).

For example, the UK and the European Union's latest steps toward boosting renewable energy use will separate the energy sector, Juliet Cohn, a portfolio manager at Principal Global Equities, said.
