    Thursday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson pointed to CNN media reporter and “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter, who recently re-released his book that has not had much success. For that reason, Carlson recommended Stelter “get out of media — immediately.” “What if your TV show was tanking, and you’d lost more than half your viewers since January? Do you think that would be exactly the moment to re-release your book on the basis of evidence that people love you so much they’re going to buy it?” he said. “Probably not. But if you work at CNN, if you’re a squeaky little guy who hosts a media show on CNN, you might just try it, and if you did, what would happen?” “Well, you might sell just 2,000 copies in the entire first week,” Carlson continued. “That book currently ranks 4,007th on the bestseller list. There are many how-to manuals having to do with HVAC or hanging drywall or insulation that are outselling that book. By the way, we don’t mean to be mean or anything. It’s just, if all signs...

    U.S. retail sales declined sharply in December, as holiday shoppers stayed away amid surging coronavirus infections and the aftermath of Joe Biden’s presidential victory. Excluding car and gasoline sales, retail sales fell 2.1 percent in the final month of 2020, data from the Commerce Department showed Friday. The prior month’s figure was revised down to show a 1.8 percent decline from the initial estimate of 0.8 percent, which means December was a bigger decline from a lower starting point. The size of the downturn in sales caught economists by surprise. The consensus estimate was for just a 3-tenths of a percentage point decline. Overall retail sales also declined by more than expected. These fell 0.7 percent for the month, worse than the flat to one-tenth of a point decline forecast. The prior month was revised down from a drop of 1.1 percent to a 1.4 percent decline. Excluding vehicles but including gas, sales fell 1.4 percent, below the one-tenth expected decline. The prior month was revised down from of 0.9 percent decline to a 1.3 percent contraction. Sales in the...
    The tiny-house movement is changing. picture alliance / Getty In 2020, the tiny-house movement saw an increase in interest and a boom in sales thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.  Insider spoke to experts about what they think the movement needs to achieve this year for tiny houses to become a legitimate housing option. Zack Giffin, the host of "Tiny House Nation," said the movement's main goal in 2021 is to convince more states and municipalities to legalize tiny houses across the country. To do that, experts say, the movement must market itself as a great option for singles and couples with no children, it must rebrand itself as an affordable housing option, and it must distance itself from RVs and camper vans.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When the coronavirus pandemic swept across the country in 2020, Nick Mosley didn't know what would happen to his tiny-house construction business.  In March, his business, California Tiny House, was operating out of a 12,000-square-foot warehouse in Fresno, California.

    Donald Trump isn't just facing defeat. He's also facing the biggest decision of his life: should he go quietly? Or should he risk being removed, kicking and screaming, from office? Whatever he chooses, now is a moment of peril: for him, for his family, for his supporters, but above all for the American nation. Over this weekend, you will hear any number of wild-eyed commentators on the US news channels speculating grandly about what will happen next.

    This article is reprinted by permission from NextAvenue.org. Ever since I wrote the viral 2017 Next Avenue post, “Sorry, Nobody Wants Your Parents’ Stuff,” I’ve been a little obsessed with Americans’ love/hate relationship with their possessions and downsizing. So, I was fascinated to read University of Kansas sociology and gerontology professor David J. Ekerdt’s new book, “Downsizing: Confronting Our Possessions in Later Life,” and to have a chance to interview him about it. Ekerdt has actually conducted exhaustive interviews with Americans over 50 about their experiences shedding their stuff. In 2002-2003, he and his researchers spoke with 38 people age 60 and older who’d moved in the previous year within, or to, the region around Lawrence, Kansas, and Kansas City, Mo. They also interviewed 98 people 60+ in the area around Detroit and again in Kansas and Missouri between 2008 and 2013. And in 2010, they put questions about relocation and possessions into the mammoth University of Michigan Health and Retirement Study (HRS), surveying 1,814 Americans age 50 and older. 61% over 60 say they have too much stuff One of...
    POINT REYES STATION, Calif. (KGO) -- The Bay Area has changed a lot in the past 100 years, but not around Point Reyes.The area looks similar to when Bob Giacomini's grandfather opened a dairy farm in Petaluma around 1900."He had about 10 cows, 400 to 500 chickens and raised six kids," said Giacomini, whose father Waldo Giacomini opened his own dairy farm in Point Reyes in 1938.Bob Giacomini followed in the family business by starting a dairy farm of his own on a hill overlooking Tomales Bay in 1959. The cows he has now are all descendants of his original cows."In the 62 years that I have been here, we have produced four daughters and increased the herd from 110 to 450," he said.Those four daughters - Karen, Diana, Lynn and Jill - didn't plan to work in the farm. Their mother, Dean Mae Giacomini, encouraged them to get a college degree, so they did. They all moved away to pursue careers in finance, marketing and real estate.

    New Yorkers are fueling a boom in home sales and rental activity outside of the city  after the coronavirus pandemic left them re-thinking its appeal and many professionals are now able to work remotely.   As COVID-19 gripped the metropolitan area in March, more than 400,000 residents fled Manhattan's wealthiest neighborhoods to take shelter in their vacation homes or elsewhere.   Many young working professionals also made the decision to return to their hometowns amid fears the city won't be able to bounce back to its former glory. New York City has since begun to get back on its feet amid a decline in COVID-19 cases, but real estate brokers and agents are now describing a red-hot market in the Hamptons and in picturesque towns upstate with many New York City house hunters wanting to escape their tiny city apartments.  According to a July Elliman Report, housing prices in the Hamptons soared for the second quarter due to a high demand from city dwellers.

    “…we are delighted to welcome Michael as the new Chief Executive to lead Galactic into commercial operations. I believe Michael’s long and distinguished career at one of the world’s leading customer experience brands provides a natural fit with Virgin’s culture as well as Galactic’s requirements as it prepares for commercial service.” Colglazier is replacing George Whitesides, who’s taking on a new role as Chief Space Officer. Whitesides is also stepping down from the company’s Board of Directors, but he will remain in charge of developing Virgin’s future business opportunities, including point-to-point hypersonic and orbital space travel. The aerospace company started selling tickets for suborbital flights in 2013, but ticket sales went on hold after the SpaceShipTwo crash in 2014 that killed one of the pilots and forced the company to build a replacement vehicle. Virgin Galactic has reopened ticket sales since then but closed it yet again after the new SpaceShipTwo reached space during a test flight in 2018. Earlier this year, the company began preparing to reopen ticket sales by launching the One Small Step program. It allows...
    The numbers: Sales of previously-owned homes slid 9.7% in May as the coronavirus pandemic continued to weigh on the U.S. real estate market. Existing-home sales occurred at a seasonally-adjusted annual pace of 3.91million, the National Association of Realtors reported Monday. It was the lowest level for existing-home sales since July 2010. Compared with last year, sales were down 26.6% in May. “Home sales will surely rise in the upcoming months with the economy reopening, and could even surpass one-year-ago figures in the second half of the year,” Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors, said in the report. What happened: On a regional basis, sales fell most notably in the Northeast, where they were down 13%. Every region saw a decrease in sales last month. There was a 4.8-month supply of homes for sale in May, down from a 4-month supply in April. Typically, a 6-month supply of homes is considered indicative of a balanced market.
