“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.

Democrats think of themselves as the "party of science," but a lot of prominent Democratic politicians have acted like they're immune from COVID. We've come to expect COVID-denialism from Trump-sycophantic Republicans, but the brazen hypocrisy of far too many Democrats is a public health threat, because it gives COVID deniers all the motivation they need to ignore social distancing guidelines. That's why I'm not particularly shocked that so many of them have put their own personal enjoyment and political expediency ahead of public health. That's because when a prominent politician — especially one from the self-espoused "party of science" — flouts COVID restrictions, it carries consequences. With some exceptions, social distancing restrictions are the most effective way to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

Why not play at night, giving players who have barely practiced in recent days more time to prepare, decreasing their risk of injury? The San Francisco 49ers will play their next two home games at the Arizona Cardinals’ Stadium, near Phoenix. The change of venues only makes sense for a league trying to keep a troubled season going, not from the standpoint of public health. Trying to play without the benefit of an N.B.A.-style restricted environment, he said “is an exercise not just in futility, but in danger.”Agreed. It would be better to pause the season now, retool the health protocols and wait out the coming storm.

Business InsiderThe pandemic has encouraged a spike in demand for virtual learning materials as people are stuck at home and craving cultural stimulation. This is article is part of a series called Small Business Ingenuity, which is focused on helping small businesses digitally transform. When the pandemic forced small businesses across the country to shut their doors, those that could sell their products online through ecommerce began promptly doing so. The business expanded to 14 locations along the East and West Coasts, but when the pandemic struck, the small business pivoted to offering Instagram Live workouts. Rather than simply push their wines online, the Garretts bundled their wines with tasting sessions.

Alaska Air Group Inc said on Monday that it would buy Virgin America Inc for $2.6 billion to compete more effectively with larger airlines and become the top carrier on the U.S. West Coast. REUTERS/Mike Blake/File Photo(Reuters) - Alaska Air Group Inc said on Monday it would lease 13 new Boeing 737-9 MAX planes from aircraft lessor Air Lease Corp, with deliveries of the jets starting from the fourth quarter of 2021 through 2022. The airline’s move to lease new 737 MAX planes comes after the United States last week lifted a 20-month-old flight ban on the aircraft. As part of the lease agreement, Alaska Air said it would sell 10 Airbus A320s to Air Lease.

Boeing has identified Alaska Air as one of the candidates to buy the 737 MAX jet along with Southwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Ryanair, the sources said. In an interview with the Financial Times on Sunday, Delta Air Lines’ Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian hinted at the possibility of purchasing 737 MAX planes. Alaska Air, which is based in Boeing’s main commercial factory city of Seattle, said it expects deliveries of the 13 737 MAX jets to start from the fourth quarter of 2021 and continue through 2022. The company’s 13 leased 737 MAX aircraft will be in addition to the 32 737 MAX jets it currently has on order with Boeing, Alaska Air said, adding that it expects to be flying five 737 MAX planes by summer of 2021. Reuters in October reported that Boeing was in discussions to sell 737 MAX jets to Alaska Air.

Singapore Airlines is growing its US route network with increased flights to the West Coast starting next month. Singapore Airlines has served the US for nearly half a century, growing to six cities and nine routes before the pandemic. In 2018, Singapore Airlines began introducing more non-stop flights to American cities, bringing the two countries closer together by cutting down travel times. That year saw the resumption of the world's longest non-stop flight between Singapore and Newark in October and non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles. Singapore Airlines is awaiting 15 more jets on order from Airbus, including seven of the ULRs.

Container shipping companies seeking to keep pace with the strong demand for goods from China are rushing to unpack and return to Asia the containers, industry officials say. That leaves fewer boxes available for American exporters to stuff with soybeans, lumber, cotton and other products. U.S. imports from China, for instance, include big volumes of electronics, apparel, toys and other manufactured goods. “Ships from China to the U.S. are full and there is high demand for empty boxes in China. “We have containers stacked six-units high and the dwell time at the terminal has almost doubled to more than four days.

The Pleasure of Phasing Into Retirement
  + stars: | 2020-11-14 | by ( Bruce Horovitz | Julie Halpert | Marc Agronin | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +8 min
But before I explain how I haven’t lived up to the ideal of a phased retirement, let me first answer a more-basic question: What exactly is phased retirement, anyway? Phased retirement (sometimes called partial or gradual retirement) means you dip much more than one toe into the retirement waters, but not quite dive in headfirst. I didn’t want to take another full-time job, but I still needed modest income, so phased retirement seemed like the best option. I knew, though, that I had to prepare for phased retirement as if it was full retirement. My biggest mistake, according to Ms. D’Agostini, was taking Social Security at age 66—my “normal” retirement age.

(Reuters) - Uber Technologies Inc said on Thursday demand for its food-delivery service exploded in the latest quarter, but recovery in its global rides business is being held back by its most important market, the United States. The company now heavily relies on cost reductions and growth at its food-delivery business, Eats, which is gradually reducing losses but remains a drag to Uber’s bottom line. Gross bookings at Uber’s rides mobility unit recovered from their massive drop in April, but remained down 50% from last year on a constant currency basis. Overall, Uber posted a net loss of $1.1 billion in the months from July to September, including stock-based compensation expenses. A German company in September acquired Uber’s European freight business and Uber has reportedly been seeking options for its Uber Elevate business.

But at least one thing has already been made clear: The women’s vote will be critical to the outcome. This past August marked the centennial celebration of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. One such case: From April 6 to Sept. 30, 1916, Alice Snitzer Burke and Nell Richardson drove 10,000 miles, to make the case for women’s suffrage. The two women, sponsored by the National American Woman Suffrage Association, drove a donated yellow Saxon Roadster from New York City down the Eastern Seaboard, through the South, up the West Coast, and back east again. They met with Americans from every side of the issue, giving speeches in town squares, and debating suffrage skeptics on the sides of dusty roads.

Some of the largest banks in the U.S. have cut back on lending to the coal sector in recent years, but they need to do much more to lower the climate risk in their loan portfolios, a new report argues. The financial world is beginning to reckon with a hard truth: Climate change poses a clear threat to the entire U.S. financial system. This summer, some of the country's largest investors sent public letters to the heads of financial regulatory agencies, asking them to take up the mantle on climate change as a systemic financial risk. Now, a new look under the hood at U.S. banks puts the extent of that risk in stark relief. The U.S. banking sector is far more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change than banks are letting on, according to new research.
