These acquisitions are gradually giving Beijing a potential stranglehold on global shipping — with profound military as well as commercial implications. Yet China, having accumulated this unprecedented stake in global shipping and commerce, and its power and profits present ominous possibilities for the future. Five years ago, China, through Cosco, purchased a controlling stake in the Port of Piraeus on Greece’s largest harbor — Europe’s seventh largest. In September, Cosco also took a major stake in the container operator at the port in Hamburg, Germany’s largest. The consequences of doing nothing as China continues to penetrate the world’s ports and shipping are potentially catastrophic.

Shipping lines, port workers, truckers, warehouse operators, railways and retailers blame each other for the imbalances and delays. “The term I’ve used is commercial gridlock,” said Mr. Mattingly, 60, who owns his own big rig. His trucking business has increased steadily since the start of the pandemic, Mr. Mattingly said, and rising rates have boosted his income. In August Mr. Mattingly had a heart attack, his third. “What has me worried the most with supply chain shortages is parts,” Mr. Mattingly said.

An oil well pump jack operated by Chevron Corp. in San Ardo, California, U.S., on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. Oil prices slid more than 1% on Friday on concerns that a global supply surplus could swell in the first quarter following a coordinated release of crude reserves among major consumers, led by the United States. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was down $1.35, or 1.7%, at $77.04 a barrel. The Economic Commission Board (ECB) expects a 400,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) surplus in December, expanding to 2.3 million bpd in January and 3.7 million bpd in February if consumer nations go ahead with the release, the OPEC source said. Forecasts of rising surplus oil clouds the outlook of the meeting between OPEC and allies, a group known as OPEC+, on Dec. 2 to decide on immediate production.

David McNew/Getty ImagesOil fell by more than 6% on Friday, as investors ditched riskier assets after the emergence of a new Covid variant. "We can very, very quickly go from a very tight market to an oversupplied market," Saxo Bank's Ole Hansen said. But after South African scientists said they had detected small numbers of a new variant of COVID-19 that could prove more transmissible, investors dumped crude oil futures and equities on Friday in favor of perceived safe-haven assets. The UK banned flights from six African countries in response, underlining worries about the impact of the new variant on economic growth. Brent crude futures were last down 5.7% on the day, set for their biggest one-day fall since mid-July, while West Texas Intermediate crude was 6.8% lower at $73.00 a barrel.

Oil prices tumbled to the lowest level in more than two months Friday as the new Covid-19 strain sparked fears about a demand slowdown just as supply increases. The World Health Organization warned Thursday of a new Covid variant detected in South Africa. On Tuesday the Biden Administration announced plans to release 50 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. "Furthermore, an even more transmissible variant of the virus has been discovered in South Africa, prompting a noticeable increase in risk aversion on the financial markets today." The group has maintained its gradual taper despite calls from the White House and others to hike output as oil prices surged to multi-year highs.

Use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the United States has not been as widespread as that of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, and studies have found the Johnson vaccine provides less protection than the other two. The Food and Drug Administration authorized Johnson & Johnson booster shots last month, despite concern among the F.D.A.’s expert advisory panel that data in the company’s application was limited and wasn’t independently verified. experts and committee members argued that recipients of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine needed an additional shot to bolster against severe Covid-19, since that vaccine was less effective than those of Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech. Johnson & Johnson doses have been distributed abroad through Covax, the global vaccine-sharing program, in an effort to bolster immunity in poorer countries, including many in Africa. Many of those shots have been provided through a deal reached in May, under which Johnson & Johnson agreed to sell about 200 million doses to Covax at a discounted rate.

Dr. Patel wanted to be closer to the Westside of Los Angeles, as he was hoping to develop a clinical practice in the area.

A Parade Returns to a City Thankful for Normal

Under the giant helium balloons bobbing across Manhattan during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday morning, people in the crowd called out to one another. Shouts of “Happy Thanksgiving!” echoed down Central Park West, all the way to Herald Square. A year after the virus forced the parade into a single, spectator-free block, the words felt powerful. The baton twirlers, the stilt walkers, the marching bands, the spectators carrying toddlers wearing turkey-shaped hats at a parade back to its old self, were undeniably happy. And in a city reeling from the loss of so many New Yorkers over the past 20 months, no word encapsulated the emotion of those who were there better than thankful.
