“She wanted a solid structure for the artists so that they felt confident about the gallery going forward,” Kaiser said. Winer and Reiring told The New York Times that they had said all they wanted to say through the dealership. “There are people who buy and sell art as if it were shares in ranches,” she said. “At a gallery like Marian Goodman, there is never any hard selling. There isn’t somebody who accosts you at the elevator,” said the gallerist Jeffrey Deitch, who has collaborated with Goodman on past exhibitions and regards her as an inspiration.

Live Covid-19 Updates: Mexican Workers Cross U.S. Border for Vaccinations The program is meant to remedy the kind of disparity in vaccine access that economists have warned could keep a global economic rebound out of reach. A program to aid the economy brings Mexican workers into San Diego for vaccinations. A bus ferrying workers and family members from Tijuana to the U.S.-Mexico border to receive a Covid vaccine this summer. Along the U.S.-Mexico border, however, a pandemic border closure and a dearth of vaccines in Mexico have threatened to keep local economic recovery at bay. As mass vaccination sites have closed, health workers are trying to persuade people who are hesitant, and people who outright refuse, to get the shots.

Business is booming for deal toy makers, who create awards for Wall Street transactions. Deal toy makers also said they've adjusted to dropshipping and material shortages. Deal toys have been Wall Street staples for decades, but suppliers left in the lurch last year have only recently started to see firms once again budgeting for tchotchkes. Deals in equity capital and debt capital markets are often also commemorated with deal toys, creating even more opportunities. Some deal toys are simple plaques, while others feature intricate details like moveable parts or precious materials.

Wildfire experts see the signature of climate change in the dryness, high heat and longer fire season that have made these fires more extreme. “We’re primed for fire,” Ms. Quinn-Davidson said.

MAHÓN, Spain — As the total wealth held by billionaires hits a high of more than $10 trillion, it is also an epic time for luxury lifestyle tourism. Only days after Virgin Galactic launched Richard Branson into interstellar travel, an unlikely art center was inaugurated Saturday on the Spanish islet of Isla del Rey off Menorca — gathering contemporary art lovers to celebrate the latest project by the Swiss-owned art dealership Hauser & Wirth. The international mega-gallery has been fast expanding its core business by also offering its clientele the kind of lifestyle experience that comes from visiting a remote, unique location. Dominated by its 18th-century hospital, the islet stands in the middle of the Mediterranean’s largest natural harbor, 15 minutes by boat from Mahón, Menorca’s capital. Hauser & Wirth has leased part of the islet’s land from a local volunteer foundation that has been working on restoring the hospital for nearly two decades.

breaking How the European Union’s plan to cut emissions will affect businesses. The European Union’s network of charging stations is concentrated in Germany, France and the Netherlands. The European Union’s plan to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by more than half by the end of the decade will touch almost every industry, with profound consequences for the economy. Shipping companies would not be able to dock at European ports unless they shift to cleaner fuels. He will also note that longer-run inflation expectations remain under control — which matters because inflation outlooks help to shape the future path for prices.

Here are the advisors, accountants, lawyers, and more to start a new family office. Whether they're rags-to-riches entrepreneurs or old-money heirs, many of the wealthy have created their own family offices to oversee their assets. One of the biggest challenges when starting a new family office is making job expectations clear when hiring staff, Hauser said. People thinking about setting up a family office should think of it as taking on a job, Kambas said. He told Insider that family offices frequently give too many family members or staff access to bank accounts of data.

The Congressional Review Act allows lawmakers to eliminate recently finalized regulations quickly, requiring only simple majorities in both the House and the Senate. During the Biden administration, Senate Democrats passed resolutions to eliminate only three Trump rules during the same period — and the deadline for Senate action closed the last week of May. "Democrats in Congress were definitely reluctant to make aggressive use of the Congressional Review Act," he said. Democrats may have been reluctant to target the related Trump rule before the decision, said Buchert of Lambda Legal. Democrats also faced political obstacles in using the Congressional Review Act.

Everyone Has a Theory About Shopping Carts
  + stars: | 2021-06-08 | by ( Christine Hauser | ) www.nytimes.com + 0.89   time to read: 1 min
The next time you go to the grocery store, consider the ordinary shopping cart as something more than a rattling basket blocking your parking space. In the 1930s, an American grocer named Sylvan Goldman invented the precursor to the modern day shopping cart, using a folding frame that was fixed on a set of wheels. He hoped that people would buy more groceries if they did not have to carry heavy baskets as they browsed. But over the decades, the shopping cart has evolved from its mundane existence as the centerpiece of every grocery store run. Like the Campbell’s Soup can, it has become an unlikely icon in a subculture that celebrates the common object.

(CNN) Vietnam's health ministry has detected a suspected new coronavirus variant which it said appears to be a hybrid of two highly transmissible strains. "A new coronavirus variant with characteristics from the existing Indian and UK variants had been detected in Vietnam for the first time," Vietnam's Minister of Health Nguyen Thanh Long told a national news conference Saturday. But since late April, Vietnam has reported a sharp increase in Covid-19 cases. Almost half its 6,396 confirmed infections were reported in the past month alone, according to Johns Hopkins University data. It is not clear if the suspected new variant is behind the sudden rise in infections.

"We expect to combine an ambitious portfolio-wide climate target, a scorecard-based tilting mechanism, selective climate-related eligibility restrictions, and an escalation ladder ending in potential divestment," BoE executive director for markets Andrew Hauser said in a speech hosted by Bloomberg.

Bank of England aims for greener corporate bond portfolio

The central bank said it would set targets for the overall emissions of its corporate bond holdings, invest in 'green' corporate bonds as they became available, and require bond issuers to publish their emissions. The BoE is not currently buying corporate bonds, and the next scheduled reinvestment of maturing bonds is due in the final quarter of 2021. The BoE doubled its corporate bond holdings during last year's COVID pandemic. The BoE owns about 10% of all corporate bonds that fit its eligibility rules. In March finance minister Rishi Sunak changed the BoE's policy mandate to require it to support a government commitment to shift towards an economy with net zero carbon emissions.

From the East Coast to the West, health officials are taking the Covid-19 vaccines on the road. Across the country, nurses, technicians, emergency medical workers and community partners are rolling up to the doorsteps, streets and churches of people who are homeless, who live in areas without reliable transportation or who have no internet access. Their goal: to reach the unvaccinated stragglers in overlooked neighborhoods, plugging a vulnerable gap in the nationwide effort to outmaneuver death. Some people are encumbered by jobs or the responsibility of child care. Many are adrift, out of reach or uninformed.

Interviews with 15 mothers in one place, Los Angeles County, reveal the costs when society relies on mothers to be the backup plan. Since late fall, more mothers living with school-age children have returned to work, almost catching up with fathers, but mothers’ return to work has stalled. In families in which fathers did more of the pandemic child care, mothers were more likely to stay employed, research shows. But in most cases, it has been mothers who cut back on paid work for child care. For many mothers, work had been their path out of difficult circumstances.
