    Retailers are on track to hit record sales this holiday season despite bargain hunters not finding the usual amount of Black Friday deals because of inflation and supply chain issues. Shoppers spent slightly less online during Black Friday this year, with many venturing back to physical stores despite coronavirus fears, tight supplies and retailers' efforts to encourage earlier holiday purchases.   For November and December, online sales are estimated to hit a record $207 billion, up 10 percent from last year, according to Adobe Digital Economy Index.  Meanwhile, the National Retail Federation has forecast combined brick-and-mortar, and online holiday sales to reach between $843.4 billion and $859 billion, an 8.5 percent to 10.5 percent spike from last year. 'Even though the holiday season should be okay from a sales standpoint - because retailers are discounting less - the margins won't necessarily be higher because of inflation,' said Forrester Research analyst Sucharita Kodali.   People shop at Macy's Herald Square store during Black Friday in New York.

    (CNN)While more people are likely to be eligible for Covid-19 vaccine booster shots, the most glaring issue prolonging the pandemic is the large swath of unvaccinated people, who are filling up hospitals and dying from the persistent virus, officials and health experts said.

    First lady Jill Biden cheered on Team USA over Zoom Friday from the U.S. ambassador's residence in Tokyo, Japan in advance of attending Friday night's Olympics opening ceremony.   'I want to thank each person who helped you be here today. Now those years of work, the drive and faith that have kept you going, have led you here.

Bauer will not be with his Dodgers teammates when they visit they make a planned stop at the White House on Friday to commemorate their 2020 World Series title, but that's because the 30-year-old was not a member of that team and only joined Los Angeles as a free agent before this season.

    President Biden on Friday said the country is "still digging out of an economic collapse" amid the coronavirus pandemic, but that the U.S. is on the "right track," as the administration reported that the economy created just 266,000 jobs in April, and saw rising unemployment. Biden, speaking from the White House on Friday, said he took office during a "once in a century pandemic and a once in a generation economic crisis."

The April jobs report released Friday showed the US economy heavily missed Wall Street’s mark, adding a measly 266,000 new jobs as the country continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. The unemployment rate also unexpectedly rose to 6.1%.

    The cable news networks didn’t break any ratings records Friday – maybe it was fatigue from a long news week that kept viewers away, or maybe they were practicing to tune out Sunday’s lowest-rated Oscars telecast ever – but Fox News can still claim victory, as it was watched by more viewers than the competition, according to data from Nielsen. Fox’s The Five was the most-watched show Friday for the second time last week, with 2.39 million total viewers, and 323,000 in the valuable demographic of viewers age 25-54.

    Oregon is moving up its priority vaccinations for virtually everyone but the general public while the rest of the nation surges ahead with its vaccine rollouts. Starting on Monday, April 5, everyone with underlying health conditions 16 years and older will be eligible for shots along with frontline workers and their families, Gov. Kate Brown announced on Friday.

    The Conversation Spain Sensory marketing: consuming sensations, emotions and feelings Shutterstock / small smiles As consumers, why do we eat a certain food? What do we value when it comes to eating it? What factors do we take into account when buying it? And perhaps more importantly: what makes us buy more again? As experts, how can we study consumer perceptions of food attributes? How can we model affective and cognitive attitudes as determinants of purchase intentions? This is how sensory marketing works Sensory marketing uses the senses of consumers and studies the perception, emotion, learning, preference, choice, evaluation, knowledge, judgment and buying behavior of these based on those. Its objective is to connect the sensations and perceptions of consumers about a product with the specific product of a specific company. What sensory marketing seeks is to develop a product personality that differentiates it from others and makes it the priority option in the purchase process.

    The White House blamed the stairs on Air Force One for President Joe Biden's fall on Friday, after first blaming the breeze.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden, 78, was '100 per cent fine' but she didn't say whether or not he was examined by a doctor after he fell multiple times trying to board the 747 presidential aircraft for his trip to Atlanta. A medical team always travels with the president where ever he goes.  'He's 100% fine, I don't know if you've been up those steps they're a little tricky sometimes,' Psaki said Monday at her daily press briefing. And she punted on whether or not a doctor examined the president.  'I'm not aware of that being required. There's, of course, a doctor who travels with the president, any president of the United States, but I'm not aware of it needing actual, extensive medical attention,' she said. She didn't clarify when reporters at the briefing pointed out she didn't say no.  'I'm not trying to be a, there's a doctor who travels with him. He was...

    Friday’s episode of General Hospital is shaping up to be a wild one. Spoilers tease that Julian Jerome will be hoping someone unexpected can help him out of his current jam. However, he’s got Sonny and Jason determined to track him down. Apparently, desperate times will call for desperate measures. Earlier this week, General Hospital viewers watched as Julian blackmailed Martin into giving him some help in escaping Port Charles. Julian’s anxious to get away from town before either Cyrus or Sonny catches up to him, and Ava’s turned her back on him. As SheKnows Soaps details, during Friday’s show, Julian will make a stop somewhere that he’ll hope can provide some assistance. He’ll knock on a door and tell the person who answers he’s looking for Kim. Kim left town just over a year ago after the messy situation where she slept with Franco while he was living with Drew’s memories. She and Julian didn’t exactly part on the best of terms, but it seems that he’ll be feeling desperate enough to reach out to her anyway. It’s not...
    Reuters November 28, 2020 0 Comments U.S. health authorities will hold an emergency meeting next week to recommend that a coronavirus vaccine awaiting approval be given first to healthcare professionals and people in long-term care facilities. The meeting, announced on Friday by a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) committee on immunizations, suggests that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may be close to authorizing distribution of the long-awaited medication, at least to those considered most vulnerable. United Airlines has begun moving shipments of the vaccine, developed by Pfizer Inc, on charter flights to ensure it can be quickly distributed once it is approved, according to a person familiar with the matter. The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices will vote on Tuesday to recommend that the FDA allow healthcare professionals and long-term care facilities to be the first two groups to get initial vaccine supplies, a CDC spokeswoman said. A green light for any vaccine would come as welcome news to Americans, who political leaders have clamped under increasingly aggressive measures to curtail the spread of...

    For years, Black Friday in-store sales have crept earlier and earlier into Thanksgiving Day itself, to the consternation of those who cherish the holiday as a day of rest, and the delight of holiday deal-seekers. Not so this year, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Major retailers including Walmart, Target and Best Buy will remain closed on Thanksgiving, joining with chains like Home Depot that have held fast to a tradition of shutting down for the holiday. When the store doors do fling open on Friday morning, retailers are taking extra precautions to prevent a huge crush of crowds that could speed the spread of the virus. Most retailers have offered rolling deals, both in-store and online, throughout November and beyond, in a bid to spread out the opportunities for deal seeking.  Stores are also offering curb-side pickup and speedy delivery. For those who still want to shop in-store, retailers will require face coverings and have capacity guidelines in place to prevent crowding - and some will even offer a reservation systems for shopping.

    Vice President Mike Pence will head to Georgia Friday to campaign with Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, the Republican incumbents in the state’s twin Senate runoff elections, which will determine whether the GOP keeps its majority in the chamber. Perdue and Loeffler will join the vice president on a bus tour with stops in the northern Georgia cities of Canton and Gainesville.

    An asteroid the size of a London bus missed the Earth by just 240 miles (386 km) on Friday 13th — but was not detected until the next day, astronomers have revealed. The space rock, dubbed '2020 VT4', was only spotted 15 hours after its closest approach by the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System on Mauna Loa, Hawaii. Had it come much closer, the 16–33 feet (5–10 m) wide body — as estimated from its brightness — would have burned up in the atmosphere over the South Pacific.

    A helicopter delivering a donated human heart to a hospital in East Los Angeles crashed on the roof on Friday, but the three people aboard escaped without serious injuries and the organ was eventually transplanted despite a doctor dropping it onto the ground.  Dramatic amateur video shows the private eight-seat helicopter ambulance spinning out of control moments before the pilot was set to land it onto the roof of Keck Hospital in Boyle Heights just after 3:15pm on Friday. As the AgustaWestland AW109 medical helicopter descended toward the helipad, it suddenly veered toward the edge of the roof before landing on its side.   Hospital officials said nobody inside or around the facility was injured. Passersby outside went running after debris fell from the chopper, according to KTLA-TV.

    Donald Trump announced in the early hours of Friday morning that both he and the First Lady Melania Trump tested had positive for coronavirus. The positive tests comes just hours after the White House announced that senior aide Hope Hicks had come down with the virus after traveling with the president several times this week.  She is said to have first felt poorly on Wednesday evening, returning from a rally in Minnesota on the president's plane. Hicks was quarantined away from others on the plane and her diagnosis was confirmed Thursday, according to an administration official, who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

    ARSENAL are reportedly closing in on a move for Houssem Aouar. But Lyon insist a deal must be wrapped up by Friday at the latest. 3Arsenal are closing in on Houssem Aouar but have until Friday to complete the dealCredit: Reuters Telefoot claims club president Jean-Michel Aulas has declared he will not do any business past October 2 - even though deadline day is three days later.

    The Major League Baseball season abridged to 60 games by coronavirus this summer seems closer to be canceled on Friday than being completed with a World Series in October. Much closer. And it didn’t take long to get here. A week into a season that opened July 23, baseball had postponed 15 total games because of players and staff testing positive for COVID-19, the potentially deadly respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus that had killed more than 153,000 Americans. Three more games were postponed Friday night, when six teams sat idled. The Twins nearly became one of them but a day of rapid-testing convinced MLB their game against the Cleveland Indians could go as scheduled. “There’s obviously been a lot going on over here,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. Twins were players were still lined up outside Target Field in the late afternoon waiting to be tested when baseball decided it would not postpone a 19th game this season because of baseball’s most recent, albeit small, COVID outbreak. Two St. Louis Cardinals players tested positive as the result of...

Load Error The stock led the S&P 500 on Friday after rallying 11%. CEO Arnold Donald said Friday that nearly 60% of 2021 bookings during the first three weeks of June were new reservations as opposed to reschedulings of a canceled cruise. After falling 70% from January highs, it's not all blue skies ahead for Carnival, Newton Advisors founder Mark Newton said Friday on CNBC's "Trading Nation." "Carnival still looks very much like a gamble given the uncertainty about the vaccine," he said.

    By AAMER MADHANI WASHINGTON (AP) — As coronavirus cases spike, public health officials are pleading with Americans to avoid large crowds and hold more muted Independence Day celebrations, but subdued is not President Donald Trump’s style, and he aimed to go big, promising a “special evening” in Washington that could bring tens of thousands to the National Mall. Trump’s “Salute for America” celebration on Saturday evening was to include a speech from the White House South Lawn that he said would celebrate American heritage, as well as a military flyover over the city and an enormous fireworks display that could pack people downtown. The president kicked off the holiday weekend by traveling to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota for a fireworks display Friday night near the mountain carvings of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. In his remarks, he accused protesters who have pushed for racial justice of engaging in a “merciless campaign to wipe out our history.” In a presidential message Saturday on the 244th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, Trump acknowledged...
    GRETNA, Neb. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies and rescue crews were to resume their search Friday for an 8-year-old Omaha girl who disappeared while playing in the Platte River at Schramm State Park just southwest of Omaha. Calls to 911 on Thursday afternoon said several children in the water needed to be rescued. The Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office said bystanders pulled several children to safety, but when deputies and Gretna rescue crews arrived at the scene, they determined one child - 8-year-old Tarie Price - was missing. A search-and rescue effort was launched along the river, but the search was called off Friday night when darkness hampered efforts. The search was to resume Friday morning.

    LAKEVIEW — Weekend closures of Broadway in Lakeview are set to begin Friday so that restaurants can expand outdoor dining into the streets during peak hours. Part of the city’s “Make Way for Dining” pilot program, Broadway will periodically be closed to traffic from Belmont Avenue to Diversey Parkway so that restaurants can spread out tables in the streets. The closures will happen Fridays from noon to 10 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The pilot program runs every weekend through June 21. “Lakeview East has a great variety of options for dining and this is an opportunity for restaurants to increase occupancy and revenue at this time,” Maureen Martino, executive director of the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce, said in a press release. “We encourage that people come out to Lakeview East to dine at one of the restaurants or enjoy takeout at one of hte tables on Broadway.” Barry Avenue, Oakdale Avenue and Briar Place will become two-way streets during the closures. The #36 Broadway bus will be rerouted in the neighborhood, with...
    When President Donald Trump spoke at a press briefing in the White House Rose Garden on Friday, he bragged to reporters, “We’re going to have the strongest economy in the world. We’re almost there now.” But journalist Catherine Rampell, in her Washington Post column, explains why the economic news released on Friday isn’t all good. Rampell notes that there is both good news and bad news when one analyzes the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics figures released on Friday. And she starts with the good news. “The jobs report released Friday morning was spectacularly better than expectations,” Rampell notes. “Markets had been expecting that the Bureau of Labor Statistics would report a decline of more than 7 million payroll jobs in May, after a loss of more than 20 million jobs in April. Instead, to nearly everyone’s shock, employers added jobs on net in May — 2.5 million of them, to be exact. The official unemployment rate fell to ‘only’ 13.3%, down from 14.7% the previous month.” Rampell goes on to say, “The job market has turned a corner earlier...
