NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. economy in November added the fewest workers since the jobs recovery started six months ago, hindered by a resurgence in new COVID-19 cases that, together with a lack of more government relief money, threatens to reverse the recovery from the pandemic recession. REUTERS/Brian Snyder/File PhotoNonfarm payrolls increased by 245,000 jobs after rising by 610,000 in October, the Labor Department said on Friday. JAMES MCDONALD, CEO AND CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER, HERCULES INVESTMENT, LOS ANGELES“Friday’s report confirms that the recent labor market recovery is decelerating. For now, the job market recovery is over until the winter wave of COVID-19 is behind us. We’re still trending powerfully upward in November, but the risk is that this moderating trend continues in December and January.”

REUTERS/Brian Snyder/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States’ trade deficit increased less than expected in October, suggesting trade could contribute to economic growth in the fourth quarter. The Commerce Department said on Friday the trade gap rose 1.7% to $63.1 billion in October. Data for September was revised to show a $62.1 billion deficit instead of $63.9 billion as previously reported. Trade was a drag on gross domestic product in the third quarter for the first time since the second quarter of 2019. That followed a record 31.4% pace of contraction in the second quarter.

Marshals and a suspected gunman were wounded in a shooting early Friday in New York City, according to three law enforcement sources. Deputies were in the Bronx when they were searching for a suspect believed to be linked to shooting a State Trooper in Massachusetts last month during a traffic stop, the sources said, based on preliminary information. Three U.S. Marshalls were shot by a wanted suspect in the Bronx. The shooting left the suspect critically wounded and multiple U.S. Marshals were hospitalized at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, according to the station.

The work will help inform how humans build a lasting presence on the moon. NASA, with the help of international and commercial partners, plans to return people to the moon in 2024. In the following decade, the agency wants to establish “a sustained long-term presence on the lunar surface,” and build up infrastructure such as communications, power generation and waste disposal. She expects a structure to be built on the moon late this decade or in the early 2030s. Jan Woerner, the European Space Agency’s director general, in 2016 kicked off Moon Village, an international, collaborative initiative for moon exploration.

He served as deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget and the National Economic Council and as a senior climate and energy advisor to Obama. Deese’s work at BlackRock prompted an outcry by several environmental and progressive groups who have criticized the appointee for working for corporate interests and said he was not aggressive enough on climate change. “Along with @JoeBiden and @BarackObama Brian Deese shepherded the rescue of the auto industry.

Reinstating the expired $600 weekly jobless benefit alone could save or create 3.3 million jobs, the report finds, and boost personal income by more than $290 billion over the next year. Without this supplement, the average worker received $318 per week in unemployment benefits in October, according to the Labor Department. Two more CARES Act provisions, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, extend jobless benefits to those who traditionally don't qualify, such as the self-employed and gig workers, as well as those who've used up the traditional 26 weeks of state-provided benefits. Following the aftermath of the Great Recession, long-term unemployment exceeded 40% of total unemployment for three years. President-elect Joe Biden has previously said he will work with Congress to extend the extra $600 per week in federal unemployment benefits that expired at the end of July for "however long this crisis lasts."

Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen on Thursday expressed confidence about the distribution of coronavirus vaccines at its pharmacies, telling CNBC the grocer was "ready and anxious to get started." Cincinnati-based Kroger, the nation's largest supermarket chain, also operates almost 2,000 pharmacies in 37 states. The logistics of delivering a vaccine throughout the country are complex, especially given the low storage temperatures required for some of them. McMullen, for his part, expressed optimism about how the process would play out once a vaccine can begin to be shipped. While noting that the ultra-cold storage temperatures needed for Pfizer's vaccine, in particular, add to the complexity, Elnahal echoed McMullen's outlook.

NEW YORK/LONDON/MILAN/MELBOURNE (Reuters Breakingviews) - Corona Capital is a column updated throughout the day by Breakingviews columnists around the world with short, sharp pandemic-related insights. But Merck’s share price is down almost 10% this year, so reallocating capital makes sense. And with multiple vaccines likely to be approved and distributed in 2021 from competitors like Pfizer and BioNTech, it’s safe to assume that another sevenfold share price boom isn’t in the cards. The small WeWork rival on Wednesday raised 300 million pounds in funky debt that converts into equity, having tapped investors for 320 million pounds in fresh equity in May. But following the May fundraising he had nearly 900 million pounds to deploy.

BOSTON (Reuters) - Massachusetts lawmakers on Tuesday approved a major police reform bill in the wake of protests over George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis that creates a new system for officer accountability, restricts no-knock warrants and bans chokeholds. FILE PHOTO: Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker speaks to incoming U.S. citizens during an official Naturalization Ceremony at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S., May 6, 2019. The Massachusetts legislation faced strong opposition from police unions. The House voted 92-67 to approve the legislation after the Senate voted 28-12 in favor. The Massachusetts legislation also creates what lawmakers say would be a first-in-the-nation statewide moratorium on biometric surveillance systems, including facial recognition technology.

Countries such as Britain, Canada, France, Iceland, and Sweden have all proposed some sort of emission-free vehicle legislation for the coming years. California is thus allowed to set much stricter emission standards, meaning a car that passes emissions in Missouri might not pass in California. Currently, there are 12 states — plus the District of Columbia — that use the California standards, including Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, and Massachusetts. The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 is the automaker's first EV in the US that's built on its new MEB platform.

CVS to Give Out Covid-19 Treatment in Nursing Homes

The major pharmacy chain CVS has reached a deal with the federal government to give out a Covid-19 antibody treatment in patients’ homes and long-term care facilities, the company announced on Wednesday, providing a new way for certain high-risk patients to get a drug aimed at keeping them out of the hospital. The treatment, called bamlanivimab and developed by Eli Lilly, has been administered mainly at hospitals since it received emergency authorization from the Food and Drug Administration less than a month ago. The three-month pilot with CVS involves just 1,000 doses of the treatment, enough to treat 1,000 Covid-19 patients. It’s not clear how much impact that will have as the virus is spreading rapidly and demand for treatments is surging. “We still don’t have a way to deliver it equitably, and I’m not sure that the CVS partnership is necessarily going to improve equity in distribution.”

Parents eager to raise their kids to compete in a competitive job market are investing heavily in digital learning and tech for their children — even toddlers. "In addition to their school studies, there is 'tech learning time,'" said Sarah Evans, owner of Sevans Strategy and Sevans Digital PR. And when many industries rely on even entry-level employees having a solid understanding of technology, parents become concerned about their children's ability to compete with their more tech-savvy peers. Over the past 12 months, she said they've spent $1,500 on tech learning opportunities for the kids. Sarah Evans"In addition to their school studies, there is 'tech learning time,'" Evans said.

Google Cloud plans to use Actifio's technology to help customers with managing their data both on the cloud and in private data centers, showing their investment in the so-called hybrid cloud. Under CEO Thomas Kurian, Google Cloud has already made several acquisitions, including a $2.4 billion deal to buy the data analytics company Looker. With Actifio, Google Cloud plans to help its customers protect their data both on the cloud and on-premises. More recently, Salesforce's plan to acquire Slack could pressure Google Cloud to acquire a cloud collaboration startup within the next several months, an analyst said.

Truvada currently costs American users roughly $1,700 a month; Teva’s generic, which debuted in October, is marketed for around $1,455 per month. Gilead's all-but-proprietary access to sell Truvada is the equivalent of Hershey’s controlling who has access to chocolate milk. Meanwhile, generic versions of Truvada — Ricovir, Tavin-EM, or Tenof-EM — elsewhere in the world cost $210 to $720 per year. (Until Teva’s generic debuted, Gilead owned 100 percent of the Truvada market in the U.S, pulling in roughly $3 billion a year.) The problem with patents thus persists because toxic agents in soulless systems have created a ruthless market for its ostensible solutions.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden on Monday will receive his first presidential daily briefing since winning the 2020 election after the Trump administration delayed approving the transition process. It’s prepared by the director of national intelligence and includes information from the CIA and other elements of the intelligence community. Outgoing Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates are also under consideration. Former Obama administration national security adviser Tom Donilon is no longer in the running to be Biden’s CIA director. After receiving the President's Daily Brief, Biden and Harris are expected to meet separately with transition team advisers.

A front-runner coronavirus vaccine candidate developed by Massachusetts biotech firm Moderna will be submitted for regulatory approval Monday, the company said — the second leading drug to pass the milestone this month. Moreover, Moderna said the vaccine was 100 percent effective at preventing severe cases of the disease. Ten days ago another vaccine candidate, developed by the U.S. pharma giant Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech, also applied for regulatory approval having observed a similar level of efficacy. So of the 15,000 people given the vaccine, not one became seriously ill with Covid-19 during the trial period, the company said. Even if these drugs get regulatory approval, rolling out the shots to billions of people around the world will involve a byzantine supply-chain challenge at a scale never been attempted before.
