ET Covid-19 Live Updates: Officials Fear Thanksgiving Travelers Could Drive Virus Surge Federal officials have urged Americans returning from Thanksgiving travel to cut down on unnecessary activity, and cautioned that they should assume they are carrying the virus. “Assume that you were exposed”: Officials warn of fallout from Thanksgiving travel. Advocacy groups estimate that there were roughly 50,000 delivery workers before the pandemic — a number they say has grown exponentially. The students, the first group of international students allowed in since March, arrived at Darwin International Airport in the Northern Territory from Singapore. According to research from Victoria University, the loss of international students is also affecting the makeup of Australia’s cities.

A man rides his bicycle next to the headquarters of Swiss food giant Nestlé and a campaign banner encouraging citizens to vote in favor of the Responsible Business Initiative. Those pushing the Responsible Business Initiative, however, say it would do little to compel actual change. Currently, unlike firms in the European Union, Swiss companies are not required to disclose nonfinancial information, he added. France has also enacted a broad law that holds companies responsible for abuses throughout their supply chains, though the Swiss government claims that the Responsible Business Initiative would impose even tougher liability on companies. The European Commission is expected to propose new rules for due diligence on human rights and the environment throughout supply chains in 2021.

“If it’s open, I’ll definitely ski,” said Swede Max Ahlstedt, on the glacier where Zermatt offers year-round skiing. Some Swiss resorts, including Davos to the northwest, boast of “cold-fogging” equipment to blast the interiors of gondolas and “kill 99.9% of viruses, bacteria and spores in a minute”. The Swiss tourism association has even adopted “Clean & Safe” as its motto in the hope of easing tourists’ nerves. “It’d be worse if you couldn’t go to the mountains at all,” said Anne Spiegler, a German living in Zurich. Swiss resorts know that the number of guests from Britain, the Netherlands, Germany or Scandinavia will inevitably be far below the levels of a normal season as the wait for a vaccine stunts cross-border travel.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

WASHINGTON — Progressives are ramping up their public pressure on President-Elect Joe Biden to appoint progressives to key jobs in his incoming administration and keep out corporate executives, lobbyists and consultants. We expect hundreds of thousands of them will," said David Segal, the co-founder of the progressive group Demand Progress. "That's why it is imperative that the Biden administration appoint a Cabinet that puts the American people's interests over corporate agendas." In 2008, the progressive movement largely demobilized after helping Barack Obama get elected. "We're just here to say that we want and we ask Joe Biden to be brave, to be big, to be bold."

He will also wear a handmade mask voluminous enough to contain his mustache and eight-inch-long beard. (Mr. Arnold, who said he earns up to $250 an hour by wrapping his 255-pound, six-foot frame into his Santa get-up for public appearances, is a proud member of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas.) “Don’t be anxious about it; Santa is going to find a way.”Mr. Arnold is one of the fortunate ones. One is Steve Gillham, a professional Santa who in previous years visited children in hospitals. Mr. Gillham, 65, will sit on a “Santa chair” — actually a century-old hall tree, or bench attached to a coat rack — facing an array of computer screens.

On November 3, five states — New Jersey, Arizona, Montana, South Dakota, and Mississippi — voted to legalize cannabis in some form. Cannabis companies are getting acquisitive as they jockey for control of the rapidly expanding legal marijuana map in the US. Overall, 15 states will have recreational cannabis markets, and 36 will have medical cannabis programs, once these latest initiatives kick into effect. Marijuana Business Daily estimates that Arizona's cannabis market could reach $790 in annual sales by 2024. So far, Canadian cannabis companies like Canopy Growth, Aphria, and Tilray have struck partnerships or invested in companies that give them footprints in the US.

Their call amounted to an acknowledgment that Mr. Biden will be declared the victor in the election. “Yes, I think so,” Mr. Graham, a close Trump ally, also said about Mr. Biden receiving the briefings. “President-elect Biden should be receiving intelligence briefings right now,” said Ms. Collins, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. It had been unclear how actively Mr. Biden, the incoming head of the party, would involve himself in negotiations before his inauguration. The case was based in part on an affidavit from a poll worker who said voters were being pressured to vote for Mr. Biden.

Biden's campaign is on track to raise $1 billion in the six days until Election Day. Leaders of Biden's campaign have been encouraging leaders on Wall Street to support the former vice president's run since the start of the primary season. Biden's campaign chairman, Steve Ricchetti, met with finance executives in January to encourage them to back his candidate, CNBC reported at the time. Four years later, he will end his bid for reelection with just over $18 million from Wall Street. Over $161 million went toward Democratic candidates up and down the ballot, while $94 million went to Republicans.

U.S. chip maker Nvidia and Chinese hardware manufacturer Huawei have big expansion plans in Cambridge but both companies have big hurdles to overcome if their dreams are to be realized. Arm Chief Executive Simon Segars told the Financial Times on Tuesday that the sale of Arm to Nvidia is likely to be held up by regulators. "The one saving grace about Softbank was that it wasn't a chip company, and retained Arm's neutrality," Hauser told the BBC. "If it becomes part of Nvidia, most of the licensees are competitors of Nvidia, and will of course then look for an alternative to Arm." Critics of the deal have asked Nvidia to make legally binding commitments that will protect U.K. jobs and Arm's business in general.
