More than 211,762 new cases and 2,858 deaths were confirmed as of Thursday evening by a Reuters tally. The stay-at-home restrictions will begin with 48 hours’ notice and remain in place for at least three weeks once they are ordered. The public health crisis has taken on more dire dimensions following a week of Thanksgiving holiday celebrations in which millions of Americans disregarded warnings against traveling and large gatherings. Health experts predict that an even greater surge could kill about 3,000 people a day over the next two months. And if there’s repercussions along down the line I am going to say that it’s worth taking that risk.”

FILE PHOTO - White House senior advisor Brian Deese (L) walks with U.S. Special Envoy for Climate Change Todd Stern (R) to attend a meeting during the COP 21 United Nations conference on climate change at Le Bourget on the outskirts of Paris, France December 10, 2015. “I’m asking Brian Deese to do this job because he’s someone who looks at hard problems and finds solutions that help make life better for American families,” Biden said in a video posted by his transition team. 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.

HOPE ON HORIZONHospitals across the United State are stretched to their limits, driving political leaders to impose restrictions like California’s in order to prevent the healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed. Several other COVID-19 vaccines are also in later stages of development. A Gallup poll released on Nov. 17 found 58% of Americans say they would get a COVID-19 vaccine, up from 50% in September. “I didn’t think I’d say this, but right now, yeah, I absolutely would,” said Nina Lyons, 65, a retiree living in Pittsburgh.

Covid Shrinks the Labor Market, Pushing Out Women and Baby Boomers

Between April and October the unemployment rate fell by more than half, to 6.9%, undoing more than two-thirds of its initial rise. But unemployment data overstates the health of the labor market because the supply of people either working or looking for a job has declined. The U.S. labor force is 2.2% smaller than in February, a loss of 3.7 million workers. A smaller labor force leaves fewer workers to build machines and clean tables, restraining the economy’s long-term prospects. “Everybody should be worried about making sure that we don’t leave workers behind,” she said.

Election officials who have been harassed and threatened in the wake of the election are pushing back against President Donald Trump’s repeated false claims that the election was stolen from him and urging party leaders to do something. Gabriel Sterling, a Republican official in the Georgia Secretary of State's office, spent the week condemning election fraud claims, which he said have incited death threats, intimidation, and harassment. But election officials across the country have said they are paying a personal price for their involvement in the democratic process. "Stand up for the truth," she urged federal and state officials. In Michigan, where Biden beat Trump by over more than 154,000 votes, the Detroit News reported that a self-proclaimed Trump supporter interrupted a Zoom meeting and threatened to rape the mothers of election officials.

Jim Watson | AFP | Getty ImagesNegotiating a new and improved trade deal with Asia-Pacific countries would help the U.S. to reassert its leadership in the region while countering China's growing dominance, said think tank Peterson Institute for International Economics. That's especially if tensions with China escalate and the U.S. needs a "concrete" joint response with its allies, Schott wrote in a Monday report. Over the last few years, countries in Asia-Pacific have moved on without the U.S. while deepening ties with China, said Schott, an expert on international trade policy. China is also negotiating new trade deals and upgrading existing agreements with countries in the region, he added. Several analysts have raised the possibility of the U.S. joining the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) mega trade deal as a counter to RCEP.

On Tuesday, the UK approved the first COVID-19 vaccine for public distribution. A majority of Americans, 58%, said in a November Gallup poll that they would take a coronavirus vaccine if it was available today at no cost to them. Of the people who said they wouldn't get a COVID-19 vaccine, only 12% said they "don't trust vaccines in general." But the struggle, health experts told Insider, will be getting enough people to get a vaccine. That experience is ingrained in Frost's mind, especially as progress in COVID-19 vaccine development ramps up.

First-time claims for unemployment benefits totaled 712,000 last week, compared to the estimate of 780,000 from a Dow Jones survey of economists, the Labor Department reported Thursday. New jobless claims filings reached their lowest level of the pandemic crisis era last week, providing a sign that hiring is continuing if at a slower pace. The claims release comes a day before the Labor Department releases its closely watched nonfarm payrolls report for November. The GAO recommended that the Labor Department issue a disclaimer about the potential inaccuracy of the count, but none was included in this report. Pandemic Unemployment Assistance claims actually dropped for the week, falling by more than 30,000 to 288,701.

Founded in 2013, Ben Thompson's $120-a-year Stratechery newsletter is beloved by tech executives and venture capitalists in Silicon Valley and reaches subscribers in more than 80 countries. Primarily working out of Taipei, Taiwan, Ben Thompson sits some six thousand miles away from his adoring fanbase of techies in California. By one unofficial estimate, Thompson's newsletter is on track to rake in over $3 million this year. The newsletter, Rabois said, has shifted his perspective on subjects like net neutrality, where Thompson took a more nuanced view to much of Silicon Valley.

Congressional Democratic leaders backed a $908 billion stimulus proposal on Wednesday, but the measure lacks funds for a new wave of direct payments. Democrats this week took the biggest step in months toward reaching a stimulus compromise, but the proposed deal lacks another round of $1,200 direct payments for millions of Americans. Many economists are urging Congress to authorize a fresh wave of stimulus checks to prevent the downturn from worsening. The call for more direct payments isn't only concentrated among Democrats. Of the major proposals in front of legislators today, only House Democrats' HEROES Act includes a second wave of direct payments.

Last January, AG Karl Racine announced he was suing the Trump Inaugural Committee, The Trump Organization and the Trump International Hotel "for blatantly and unlawfully abusing nonprofit funds to enrich the Trump family." "This came as a result of coordination between Inaugural Committee Deputy Chairman Rick Gates, Trump International Hotel management, and members of the Trump family." "This week spent 5+ hours in a deposition with the Democrat D.C.

Mike Gapen, chief U.S. economist at Barclays, sees virtually no growth in the first quarter of 2021, followed by a rebound as mass vaccinations begin and consumer behavior returns to normal. Indeed, there are some hopeful indicators alongside the job market gloom: a booming stock market, brisk sales of new and existing homes, and reasonably healthy spending going into the holiday shopping season. California, for example, is considering another lockdown to stem the pandemic’s spread, a move that would have broad implications. Illinois reported nearly 19,000 initial claims for unemployment insurance in the week ending Nov. 21, while Michigan said there were more than 17,000 filings. Joshua Shapiro, chief U.S. economist at the consulting firm MFR, noted that the highest weekly tally ever for jobless claims before the pandemic was 695,000 in 1982, well below last week’s total.

The company has repeatedly said publicly that it planned to ship 50 million vaccine doses this year and up to 1.3 billion doses by the end of 2021. Still, Pfizer shares fell more than 2% in intraday trading Thursday before closing down more than 1% after the report published. The company plans to ship frozen vials of the vaccine to vaccination points from its sites in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Puurs, Belgium. Pfizer announced on July 22 that the U.S. agreed to buy 100 million doses of its vaccine for up to $1.95 billion. The agreement, part of the Trump administration's vaccine program Operation Warp Speed, allows the U.S. to acquire an additional 500 million vaccine dosesOn Wednesday, the U.K. authorized Pfizer's vaccine, becoming the first country to do so.

Trump has increasingly complained about the law as platforms like Twitter fact-checked his posts before and after the election. “That's not a part of the bill,” he said on Wednesday, adding that he has said the same to Trump. Trump maintains high approval ratings among Republican voters, which has made some lawmakers squeamish about crossing him. Others in the party are hopeful Trump can be convinced that completing the year-end items would boost his image. He said that if such a deal materializes, it would likely be attached to the government funding bill that must pass by Dec. 11 to avoid a shutdown.

REUTERS/Yuri GripasIn a four-page order issued on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Janet Neff said she would not strike the disputed document from the court record. Lawyers for the city of Detroit had asked Neff to strike the document as a way of sanctioning Trump’s campaign. Detroit’s lawyers said on Nov. 19 that the campaign included “impertinent and false language” in the filing. “With the filing of its motion, the City of Detroit’s factual position is part of the court record, and the Court, in its discretion, declines to impose the requested sanction,” Neff wrote.

From 2016 to 2020, Hetherington argued in an email,there was no marked increase in the percentage of nonwhite voters. The key factor in this shift among white voters, Hetherington contended, was a major change in “the mix of urban, suburban, and rural voters” who turned out in 2020. This did not happen becauserural Georgia voters stayed home.

Modern cereal owes its existence to a bitter rivalry between John Harvey Kellogg and his younger brother Will Kellogg, who founded the iconic Kellogg's food brand. John Harvey had his younger brother Will develop the first modern wheat flakes in the 1890s so that patients could have a pre-cooked, ready-to-eat breakfast cereal. John Harvey called him his "lackey" and forced him to follow him around with a notebook, dictating ideas as they occurred to him. John Harvey even forced Will to come into the bathroom with him to record his thoughts. When John Harvey started marketing a new "sterilized bran" cereal in 1916, Will immediately made his own version.

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.
