Now, many DTCs, including Casper, Harry's, and Native, are reversing their initial strategy with wholesale partnerships with major retailers like Target, Walmart, and CVS. Retail partnerships offer DTC brands a way to expand their customer base without the expensive costs of acquiring them through digital ad spend in a crowded market. While you're there you can also pick up a Casper mattress, a stick of Native deodorant, a BarkBox dog toy, and a Quip toothbrush — all DTC brands that were previously online-only. CVS also has a growing number of DTC brands in its stores, like Stryx and Public Goods. CVS also took note of this trend when building out its partnerships with DTC brands.

“Nomadland,” Chloé Zhao’s latest film, is nominally a quiet portrait of a working-class woman, Fern (played by Frances McDormand), who lives in her van and works piecemeal manual labor jobs along the West Coast. No longer housed inside of four solid walls, with little steady income, Fern is making due where her old life left off — sort of. Then, while working a seasonal gig at Amazon, Fern meets an older woman, Linda May, who befriends Fern almost against her will. “I like work.”What happens when the house in which you’ve lived is taken away, when the Social Security you’ve paid into for 50 years isn’t enough to retire on? It’s clear Fern, like many of the people she meets on the road, has lived through painful things — as have we all.

A growing list of elected officials have been caught traveling, enjoying dinner parties and going on exotic vacations as America embarks on what could be a dark winter of the pandemic's deadly surge. Newsom's decree came a few weeks after he attended a dinner party with a dozen friends at a luxurious French Laundry restaurant in the wine country north of San Francisco. San Francisco Mayor London Breed, a Democrat, admitted Thursday that she attended an indoor dinner and birthday party, also at French Laundry, on Nov. 7. The contrite mayor tweeted: "I need to hold myself to a higher standard and I will do better." "It’s the politicians and the celebrities that set the messaging in our social media and media," said Caplan, a professor of medical ethics at NYU Langone Medical Center.

Throughout the state, politics and anger are infecting the public health discourse as health officials find that they're fighting not only Covid-19 but also threats and harassment from "anti-maskers" and others who refuse to follow safety guidelines. But nine months after the first Covid-19 case was confirmed in Kansas, she finishes many workdays in tears. Dozens of health officials in Kansas have left or lost their jobs after having weathered insults and harassment from people who refuse to follow mask mandates and safety guidelines, according to KCUR, a National Public Radio station in Kansas City, Missouri. On top of that, health officials have had to contend with other challenges: disinformation, distrust of government, fear of being asked to quarantine and missed shifts at work. Resistance to public health measures has not been confined to social media or fringe members of the community.

In the first week of December 2020, social media posts showing President-Elect Joe Biden stepping out of a car with an orthopedic boot on his right foot falsely claimed that he was wearing an ankle monitor. Having suffered hairline fractures in his foot while playing with one of his dogs, Biden will likely require a walking boot for several weeks. Users alleging that Biden is hiding an ankle monitor with his boot provide no evidence and are likely tied to conspiracy theorists QAnon.

Slideshow ( 2 images )ROME (Reuters) - More than half of Italians think it is right to give up personal freedom to protect public health, a survey said on Friday, suggesting the government’s curbs to fight the COVID-19 pandemic still have public support. The percentage is highest among young people, the survey showed, reaching a peak of 64.7% among those aged between 18 and 34. Italy was the first Western nation hit hard by the virus and has suffered more than 58,000 fatalities since its outbreak emerged in February. On Thursday, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte imposed a ban on midnight mass and on movements between towns on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day, among other measures. Fear was the dominant emotion among Italians in 2020, the survey showed, with some 73.4% saying they felt anxious and scared.

"Without considering racial equity, we deepen the cracks that systemic racism has already created in our health care system." Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, an expert on health care inequality at Yale University, said testing and vaccine programs must consider fairness and equity along with safety to be truly effective. Mays, who was an early HIV/AIDS researcher, said many of the disparities experienced today in Black communities during the pandemic mirror what she witnessed in the 1980s. "Structural racism is embedded in our health care system." "These anti-family policies that have been in place kept our communities away from the health care system," she said.

President-elect Joe Biden said his January inauguration is likely to resemble the largely virtual Democratic National Convention last summer due to the coronavirus pandemic, and he said he would emphasize safety to avoid spreading the virus. But my guess is you’ll see a lot of virtual activity in states all across America,” Mr. Biden said Friday in Wilmington, Del. “I think you’re going to see something that is closer to what the convention was like than a typical inauguration,” he said. Mr. Biden said his transition team was holding discussions with congressional leaders in preparations for the events planned on Jan. 20, when he is scheduled to be sworn-in as the nation’s 46th president. “First and foremost, my objective is to keep America safe but still allow people to celebrate,“ Mr. Biden said.

(Reuters) - U.S. artificial intelligence-driven energy storage company Stem Inc is nearing a deal to go public through a merger with blank-check acquisition company Star Peak Energy Transition Corp at a valuation of around $1.35 billion, according to people familiar with the matter. The agreement could be announced as early as Friday, the sources said, requesting anonymity ahead of an official announcement. Stem was founded in 2009 and provides an energy storage system which allows users to automatically switch energy usage between battery and grid power, based on an artificial intelligence platform dubbed “Athena.” Its backers include Activate Capital, BNP Paribas and GE Ventures. Batteries are used to solve the issue of the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Star Peak is a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC).

A survey of 130 US mayors found that 45% expect to make or see serious cuts to public education spending due to the COVID-19 pandemic. An equal number expect cuts in parks and recreation, transportation budgets, and social services. The vast majority of mayors surveyed said the federal government's response to the pandemic was inadequate. Nearly half of America's mayors expect to see "dramatic" cuts to public school budgets in the coming months, with an equal number attributing their cities' economic struggles at least in part due to an inadequate federal response. "This year, while we still hear glimmers of optimism, their pessimism in the face of a once-in-a-century pandemic is palpable," Wilson said.

Former FDA Chief and Pfizer board member Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC that he is "hopeful" there will be adequate vaccine supply in 2021, on the heels of a Wall Street Journal report that Pfizer had to cut its original estimates for the amount of vaccine doses this year because of supply-chain problems. "The supply ramps very quickly as you move out and the more you push out that timeframe into 2021 by a week or two weeks, you have less supply in 2020," Gottlieb said. "I'm hopeful that we're going to have adequate supply in 2021 and it's going to ramp very quickly, but hopefully these do get into the market this year." One American died about every 30 seconds from Covid on Wednesday, according to a CNBC analysis of Johns Hopkins data. Gottlieb said that while there is some protection after the first dose, both doses should be taken for 95% efficacy.

“This is one of the things that keeps me up at night,” Mr. Fowler said, thinking about the impact on the city’s half a million residents. Such cuts could end up closing one or two police stations, even though crime is rising, he said. A traffic study of a street in his district with a heavy accident toll has been delayed. On any given day, that will mean fewer people available to drive buses, respond to emergency calls or pick up trash. Every agency on average took a 21 percent cut on top of what they were already facing.

About $67 billion in cash is missing, according to the Public Accounts Committee, a group of UK ministers. The Bank of England denied that the money is missing, but a Labour minister said it has been "stashed somewhere." About $67 billion in cash is "missing," possibly stashed in homes or used in the "shadow" economy, a group of UK ministers said Friday. This was the view expressed on Friday by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), which is responsible for overseeing government expenditures. The missing cash totals roughly 75% of the "precious and dwindling supply" of banknotes issued by the UK, said the 16-member PAC.

The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged and settled with the Cheesecake Factory for misleading investors with its Covid-19 disclosures. This is the first time that the regulator has charged a company for misleading investors about the financial impacts of the pandemic. But internal documents at that time showed the Cheesecake Factory was losing about $6 million in cash per week, with only 16 weeks of cash remaining. The Cheesecake Factory did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC. Shares of the Cheesecake Factory fell about 1% in premarket trading.

Petco Health and Wellness has filed an S-1 for an initial public offering as consumer spending on pets rises during the coronavirus pandemic. In the ten months ended Oct. 31, 2020, Petco's net sales rose 9% to $3.58 billion compared with the same time a year ago. Same-store sales have jumped 9.6% so far this year. Over the last three years, after its same-store sales turned negative, Petco invested $300 million to modernize its business, including building an e-commerce site and launching a full-service veterinary hospital network. Five years ago, Petco nearly went public but was instead acquired by private equity firms CVC Capital Partners and Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board for $4.6 billion.

Consolidation in marketing services has picked up, with notable deals like Platinum Equity's acquisition of PR software company Cision and CVC Capital Partners' acquisition of PR giant Teneo. Private equity is increasingly looking for public relations agencies and software companies to invest in or acquire. Not long ago, private equity firms used to view investing in public relations agencies and software companies as a volatile industry. "There's a level of stickiness that is generally underappreciated in the industry, with contractually recurring or recurring revenue that have proven quite resilient," Tayeh said. Business Insider identified eight firms that have invested in PR agencies and software companies, using publicly available information and original reporting.

The poor, in particular, have been more at risk than the rich, according to analyses of those who have been sickened by the virus or succumbed to it. And new studies have suggested that the reason the virus has affected Black and Latino communities more than white neighborhoods is tied to social and environmental factors, not any innate vulnerability. “Neighborhoods matter,” said Molly Scannell Bryan, a research assistant professor at the Institute for Minority Health Research at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Some researchers suggest that one explanation is that men are generally in poorer health than women, more likely to smoke or have heart disease. By early December, at least 135,000 men had died from the virus in the United States, compared with at least 114,000 women, according to federal data.
