Towering musical theater master Stephen Sondheim dies at 91
  + stars: | 2021-11-26 | by ( )   time to read: +14 min
A Broadway theater was named after him. The Guardian newspaper once offered this question: "Is Stephen Sondheim the Shakespeare of musical theatre?" The following year, Sondheim wrote the score for "Follies," a look at the shattered hopes and disappointed dreams of women who had appeared in lavish Ziegfeld-style revues. Sondheim was born March 22, 1930, into a wealthy family, the only son of dress manufacturer Herbert Sondheim and Helen Fox Sondheim. At the same time, Sondheim wrote his first musical, "Saturday Night," the story of a group of young people in Brooklyn in 1920s.

Faith Salie — a panelist on the NPR quiz show “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!,” a contributor to “CBS News Sunday Morning,” a podcast host (her latest, “Broadway Revival,” debuted Nov. 18), an actor, an author, a baker (her Coca-Cola cake, made from her mother’s recipe, is serious business), a Rhodes scholar (life isn’t fair) and a charmer — lives with her two children and one husband, as she puts it, in a postwar high-rise near Lincoln Center. “We love this area so much that it’s hard to look elsewhere for something more spacious or more affordable,” said Ms. Salie, 50, whose solo show, “Approval Junkie,” based on her 2016 essay collection of the same name, runs through Dec. 12 at the Minetta Lane Theatre. (It will also be recorded as an Audible Original.) “I’m evangelical about the Upper West Side.”She could probably learn to warble hosannas about other parts of town — yes, Ms. Salie can sing, too — but since moving to Manhattan from Los Angeles in 2006 to be the host of the short-lived news-and-entertainment radio show “Fair Game,” she has lived exclusively in a square-mile-and-a-half area bordered by Central Park West and Broadway.

ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE, Nov 22 (Reuters) - U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell underscored his commitment to putting climate change at the center of the central bank's policymaking decisions during his conversations with President Joe Biden, the White House said on Monday. read moreSpeaking to reporters aboard Air Force One, press secretary Jen Psaki said the Fed had taken important steps forward under Powell, including identifying climate change as a key risk that needs to be addressed, working with other central banks to mitigate climate change, and hiring a top climate economist. Biden has three other Fed seats to fill, including the vice chair for supervision, and intends to pick those in early December, the White House said earlier Monday. Critics fault Powell for not moving more decisively to address climate change in his first term. "The Fed has made considerable strides on bringing evaluation of how climate risks affect the banks it supervises.

Tucker Carlson's documentary on the Jan. 6 insurrection is riddled with errors and fallacies. The tone, tenor, and content of the documentary diverge significantly from how Fox News has covered the insurrection, which they most often refer to as the "Capitol riot." Fox News did not provide a statement in response to Insider's request for comment on Carlson's documentary and his guests. Notably, the bulk of Carlson's argument that FBI agents incited the riot omits the names of white nationalist groups that informants infiltrated. Carlson also compares the federal government's response to the insurrection to how the US military toppled Saddam Hussein's dictatorship in Iraq.

Both Ford and Rivian had already signaled they were moving away from earlier plans to work together on EVs. But the news, first reported late Friday by Automotive News , sent Rivian shares down 3% in the last hour of trading Friday, and wider reports sent shares sharply lower Monday. By midday, Rivian shares were off their lows of the day. Rivian and Ford both issued statements saying that their plans and needs had changed since the original collaboration was announced, and pointed out that Ford remains a major investor in Rivian, holding roughly 12% of its shares outstanding. "Our relationship with Ford is an important part of our journey, and Ford remains an investor and ally on our shared path to an electrified future."

MIZATA, El Salvador/LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) - El Salvador plans to build the world's first "Bitcoin City" with money from a $1 billion bitcoin-backed bond the country's President Nayib Bukele said on Saturday. The premium investors demand to hold El Salvador bonds rather than ultra-safe U.S. government bonds has also more than doubled since June when Bukele's push to make bitcoin legal tender started. That would allow El Salvador to then pay off the bond with profits made from selling the bitcoin again. The International Monetary Fund, whose help El Salvador is expected to need to ease its problems, has not yet commented on the volcano bond plan. Earlier in the year it said it had both economic and legal concerns about El Salvador making bitcoin legal tender.

Ford Motor and Rivian have dropped plans to develop an electric vehicle together, although Ford remains a major investor in the start-up automaker. The companies formed a partnership in 2019 when Ford invested $500 million in Rivian.

Routine immunizations protect children against 16 infectious diseases, including measles, diphtheria and chickenpox, and inhibit transmission to the community. The rollout of Covid shots for younger kids is an opportunity to catch up on routine vaccinations, O’Leary said, adding that children can get the vaccines together. Primary care practices, where many children are likely to get the Covid shots, usually have other childhood vaccines on hand. Weekend vaccination clinics can help working parents get their children caught up on routine immunizations while they get flu or Covid shots. But we’ve maintained vaccination rates north of 90 percent for all routine childhood vaccines for a long time now,” he said.

REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstNov 16 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden's infrastructure and social spending legislation will not add to inflationary pressures in the U.S. economy, economists and analysts in leading rating agencies told Reuters on Tuesday. Biden has spent the past few months promoting the merits of both pieces of legislation - the $1.75 trillion "Build Back Better" plan and a separate $1 trillion infrastructure plan. Zandi said the costs of both the infrastructure and social spending legislation were sustainable. The House of Representatives passed the $1 trillion infrastructure package earlier this month after the Senate approved it in August. The Congressional Budget Office anticipates publishing a complete cost estimate for the Build Back Better plan by Friday, Nov. 19.
