For Covid-Era Wedding Dresses, Anything Goes
  + stars: | 2020-12-05 | by ( Rory Satran | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +4 min
Elaborate country-club weddings and tropical destination events were downsized to “minimonies” (tiny weddings), “micromonies” (another word for tiny weddings) and intimate backyard affairs. And over-the-top poofy dresses chosen by committee became jumpsuits and minidresses purchased online, worn with white face masks. Her short, tailored Dior dress looked just right—even iconic—for her wedding pictures at the burger joint In N’ Out. While she’s watched friends who design couture-level clothing close their businesses, she said her affordable and modern dresses are flying out the door, purchased for intimate Covid-era ceremonies. The designer explained, “She said she still felt bridal-ish but beautiful and it’s something that she’s going to wear again and again.”

A San Diego State University Student says that a hacker breached her Snapchat account and posted her private nude photos while demanding she pay a ransom. Ultimately, Snapchat informed her that her account was disabled 30 minutes after Business Insider reached out for comment on this story. For five days a desperate San Diego State University student emailed and messaged Snapchat pleading for the company to disable her hacked account. A cyber-criminal had posted nude photos she had privately sent her boyfriend via the app, and demanded payment to stop. The company said it responded quickly in the case of the student, taking down the nudes and disabling the account.

That's because there are 32 NFL teams each with a 53-man roster plus a practice squad. Baltimore Ravens quarterback Robert Griffin III rushes the ball against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Griffin was playing because Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had tested positive for Covid-19, tweeting : "Praying for my brother @Lj_era8 and every player, staff member and their families dealing with COVID-19. Yet the coronavirus testing data released by the NFL and NFL Players Association tells a more worrying story. And as the number of cases increases in wider society, more NFL players and personnel will be infected by the virus.

Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House advisor, famously comes from a powerful real estate family. That has not only damaged his reputation but also set back investors who have partnered with him and his family's real-estate firm, Kushner Companies. Kushner Companies, which is helmed by Kushner's father, Charles, disputed the notion that its name had become tarnished in real estate. "We are proud of our many partners and banking institutions who have remained loyal and true to the Kushner family and to Kushner Companies."

Salesforce and Slack say that their $27.7 billion deal isn't about Microsoft, it's about a new way to work. With Slack, Salesforce is clearly hoping to benefit from the same dynamic. In the same way that Microsoft Teams ties together the Office 365 suite with chat and messaging, Slack could do the same for Salesforce. It has Microsoft Teams, which now has 115 million daily active users. Experts predict that the Slack deal will likely open the floodgates for software M&A.

REUTERS/Stephen Lam/File Photo(Reuters) - The mayor of San Francisco on Friday said she and political leaders across the Bay Area were imposing new lockdown orders and business restrictions in the face of a surge in COVID-19 infections. “What we’re seeing now is a spike unlike anything we’ve seen so far in the pandemic,” Breed said in announcing the restrictions during a live-streamed news conference. The new rules apply across five Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Santa Clara and San Francisco, as well as the city of Berkeley. Breed said that 16,208 infections have been documented in San Francisco since the pandemic began.

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.

* Households and businesses that are in trouble need grants, which the Fed can’t provide, not lower borrowing costs, which is what the Fed already has delivered. * And to top it off, Fed policymakers say, the rapid spread of the virus means now is not the time to ramp up stimulus. “I am not opposed to more accommodation,” Chicago Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Evans told reporters on Friday. This week, as fiscal talks rekindled, some analysts speculated that a sharp rise in bond yields could nudge the Fed into action.

WASHINGTON — A Trump campaign fundraiser and a lawyer for the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner were involved in an effort to get a pardon from the White House at the behest of a wealthy octogenarian in the early days of the Trump administration, lawyers for the two men told NBC News. According to The Times, Baras was not granted clemency and served a federal sentence for tax evasion from 2017 to 2019. William Burck, an attorney representing Broidy, told NBC News that Broidy's involvement was limited to introducing Lowell to Diller. "Mr. Broidy was asked by Mr. Diller to refer him to a D.C. lawyer who could assist on a clemency petition. The White House referred questions about the investigation to the Justice Department.

Lasting high? Cannabis industry aims to build on Thanksgiving rush

(Reuters) - U.S. cannabis sales hit record levels over the Thanksgiving weekend, prompting industry predictions the combination of COVID-19 anxiety and a trend towards legalisation has triggered a permanent uplift in demand. Stuart Titus, an early cannabis investor and CEO of Medical Marijuana Inc, says 2021 could be the year when cannabis becomes as readily available as alcohol and tobacco. A Gallup poll in November showed support for marijuana legalisation had reached 68% support, the highest level yet and up from 66% last year. “With many Republican Senators now representing states that have passed cannabis legalisation measures by wide margins, we will likely see increased support from Republicans for federal cannabis reforms,” he said. “Lawmakers see cannabis legalisation as a great way to shore up their balance sheets and provide jobs during this time of economic uncertainty,” she told Reuters.

A high school football player in Texas tackled a referee after he was escorted from a game on Thursday night. Emmanuel Duron, a senior defensive tackle at Edinburg High School, was ejected from a football game for a late hit and unsportsmanlike behavior against a player from Pharr-San Juan-Alamo High School, NBC affiliate WOAI-TV reported. The referee was evaluated for a concussion by medical personnel while officers from the school district escorted Duron out of the stadium, according to the station. Duron and Edinburg High School did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News. Duron was the school district’s Defensive Player of the Year last season, and the school team’s kicker, punter and star wrestler, the newspaper reported.

California Governor Gavin Newsom, also a Democrat, said on Thursday he would impose similar stay-at-home orders statewide, to take effect region-by-region as intensive care beds reach capacity. More than 213,830 new cases and 2,861 deaths were reported on Thursday, according to a Reuters tally of official data. With U.S. COVID-19 hospitalizations also at record levels, some experts project the death toll could soon surpass 3,000 per day. But it will fall far short of protecting high priority groups such as healthcare workers, a Reuters analysis has found.

DoorDash, the biggest U.S. third-party delivery company for restaurants, plans to sell 33 million shares at between $90 and $95 apiece, it said in a regulatory filing here. San Francisco-based DoorDash plans to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker “DASH” this month.

On the election campaign trail, Biden promised a $4 billion plan to address underlying factors driving migration from Central America. MASS UNEMPLOYMENTEven before the storms, Central American nations were reeling from economic crises brought on by the pandemic and mass unemployment led to a steady increase in migration north.

How to Handle the Covid-19 Vaccine Breakthrough the Right Way

If Covid-19 vaccines were only 70% effective, a vaccine taken by 70% of people would protect roughly half of society. At 70% uptake (and combined with the immunity of unvaccinated people who have recovered from the virus), vaccination could end the explosive spread of the virus. A researcher works in a lab run by Moderna Inc., which said last month that its Covid-19 vaccine was more than 90% effective, based on interim data from a late-stage clinical trial. ”No serious adverse events have been identified among the tens of thousands of participants in clinical trials of the leading Covid-19 vaccines.

Phoenix Gave Youth Sports a Pandemic Escape—Until Covid Surged

The Phoenix area emerged as an unlikely oasis for sports in recent months because of its willingness to host youth events during the pandemic as nearby states restricted or barred them altogether. Phoenix has hosted tournaments featuring hundreds of teams, with thousands of athletes at a time—even as coronavirus cases surged and modelers said Arizona’s number of Covid-19 hospitalizations could exceed the number of hospital beds by around Christmas. The resulting tension between these events and the Covid surge came to a head when Phoenix’s city council gathered Wednesday night for a virtual meeting. Phoenix’s ruling doesn’t affect the state’s professional or college teams, such as Arizona State in nearby Tempe, only facilities managed by the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. It also won’t upend the 49ers in Glendale, Ariz.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department investigated whether a lawyer for Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, had been involved in a bribery scheme to win clemency for a man convicted of tax crimes, the New York Times said on Thursday. White House senior advisor Jared Kushner looks on at a U.S. President Donald Trump's campaign rally at Fayetteville Regional Airport in Fayetteville, North Carolina, U.S., November 2, 2020. As part of the plan, a San Francisco real estate developer, Sanford Diller, would make an unspecified political contribution, it added. U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell released an order that described what she called a “bribery-for-pardon” investigation. In October, Broidy pleaded guilty in a separate case to legally lobbying Trump to drop an investigation into a Malaysian embezzlement scandal.

Companies that rent out electric scooters hope more driver training can smooth the ride for their customers—and for their businesses. PREVIEWE-scooter startups are competing for riders and contracts with cities at the end of a difficult financial year. Nevertheless, investors have continued to back e-scooter companies, and more lawmakers are letting providers deploy their e-scooters in cities across the world. E-scooter schools could help temper city authorities’ lingering safety concerns, said David Zipper, visiting fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Taubman Center for State and Local Government. Tier hopes its riding schools will build up their confidence and get them riding regularly, he said.

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.

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.

US Judge Vince Chhabria on Thursday accused an ICE official of lying to cover up the "deliberate indifference" to the lives of immigrants at a privately-run detention center. Over the summer, over half of those detained at the Mesa Verde ICE Processing Center contracted COVID-19. It also requires facility staff to segregate detainees who have tested positive in separate dorms. Bree Bernwanger, an attorney with the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights in San Francisco, argues that the behavior documented by Judge Chhabria should be a lesson to President-elect Joe Biden and his team. "The new administration should take heed of the court's observation that ICE and GEO have lost the right to be trusted."
