    Joe Biden said he hopes Donald Trump has learned a lesson when it comes to holding big events ahead of plans for the president to host a massive swearing-in ceremony for his Supreme Court nominee Monday night. 'I just hope he is willing to learn a lesson, and there will be significant social distancing. I don't blame him for celebrating. There are a lot of things he can be doing without massive crowds,' Biden said.  The Democratic nominee made his remarks during a surprise visit to a voter service center in Chester, Pa., on Monday - the same day President Trump held three campaign events in the state.  Biden pointed out that Trump's announcement of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be nominee for the Supreme Court became a super-spreader event. At least 13 people who attended the event later tested positive for COVID, including the president, first lady Melania Trump, and several senators.  'When the president of the United States puts on these super-spreader events, you saw what happened when she was announced, all the people, including his family - thank...

    Starbucks shift supervisor Adan Miranda wears a face mask as he serves a drink to a customer while standing behind a plexiglass shield in a booth outside the store in Sacramento, Calif., Thursday, May 21, 2020.Rich Pedroncelli | AP The coronavirus pandemic is spurring on a growing number of restaurant chains to build restaurants with new bells and whistles focused on convenience and safety. Concerns about the virus, restrictive lockdowns and disruptions to everyday routines have drastically changed consumer behavior this year. Customers downloaded restaurant apps for easy ordering and delivery, while others took to the drive-thru. Drive-thru visits increased by 26% in April, May and June, according to data from the NPD Group. Some restaurant companies are accelerating plans to update their store formats with a focus on convenience. Starbucks, for example, is going to build more mobile pickup cafes this year and in 2021 than it previously thought.  Others are taking a more drastic step and introducing entirely new designs based on how customers ordered and picked up their food during the pandemic. Here are the three restaurant chains...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are 'likely' to spend an 'extended period of time in the UK next year' in order to attend Trooping the Colour and the unveiling of the new Princess Diana statue, their royal biographer has claimed. Omid Scobie, co-author of bombshell biography Finding Freedom, said the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, had 'many reasons to be based in the UK' in the spring and summer of 2021. Speaking on the Heirpod podcast, Omid said: 'In March, we have the Invictus Games, which has been rescheduled, in the Hague. In June, we have Trooping the Colour, which I imagine Prince Harry and Meghan would like to still be at, and July 1, we have the unveiling of the [Princess Diana] statue.' Prince Harry and Meghan have been living in the US since announcing their plans to step back from royal duty in January, and recently bought a sprawling nine-bedroom and 16-bathroom mansion in upscale Santa Barbara for $14.65million, making them neighbors with celebrities Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres. Meghan Markle, 35, and Prince Harry,...

    Toward the end of its last Unpacked press conference, Samsung spent a surprising amount of time talking about its new Galaxy Z Fold 2 before promising more detail on September 1st. Now, the company has made those plans more concrete: Rather than a news dump or PR blast, Samsung will stage a streamed event at 10AM Eastern/7AM Pacific that day to focus on the foldable. In years past, such an announcement would’ve been made on the ground at the IFA trade show in Berlin, but continued concerns over the novel coronavirus pandemic forced Samsung to back out of the event in July. The Z Fold 2 was leaked fairly thoroughly in the run-up to Samsung’s summer Unpacked event, and its many rumored improvements — a bigger external display, a redesigned hinge and a faster Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset — were spot-on. And more recently, at least one YouTuber has managed to obtain the phone and give it the full (and flashy) video review treatment. In other words, most of the usual smartphone bits to get excited over are fairly well-understood,...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden has released his “Agenda for Women” with the general election under 100 days away. Biden announced the agenda on Twitter, saying, “The hard truth is women — and particularly women of color — have never had a fair shot to get ahead in this country. That’s why today, I’m releasing my plan to make sure women can fully participate in our economy and country.” His agenda recognizes the varied and diverse experiences of women, advocating for specific policies that will help LGTBQ+ women, women with disabilities, incarcerated women, women veterans, Native women, and women of color. The extensive agenda underscores the fact that women’s issues are not limited to reproductive health––minimum wage, paid leave, criminal justice reform, student debt, tuition-free college, immigration policy, and many more are all women’s issues. Here are the central pillars of his agenda: Improve economic security Biden commits to closing the wage gap and ending pay discrimination. Biden will work to address sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination in workplaces, advocating for the Bringing an End to Harassment...
    Joe Biden unveiled the fourth plank of his Build Back Better Agenda on Tuesday afternoon, this one focused on advancing racial equity through economic investment. Biden opened by calling on the Senate and Donald Trump to pass the restored Voting Rights Act, now renamed after the late Rep. John Lewis. “If they don’t,” he said, “I’ve been saying all along it’s one of the first things I’ll do as president if elected. We can’t let the fundamental right to vote be denied,” especially against the backdrop of the racial disparities of the coronavirus pandemic. Biden cited the 40% of Black-owned businesses that have been forced to close during the pandemic. “Everything is worsened by this crisis of presidential leadership,” he said, citing the “duty to care for the entire country” that Trump has failed so terribly. All of this—in addition to the hundreds of years of systemic racism in the United States—is the backdrop for Biden’s plan to help people of color advance in the nation’s economy. Among many other things, Biden’s plan would put $30 billion into a small business opportunity fund for...

    Ford has unveiled its 2021 Bronco fleet, 26 years after OJ Simpson's name became synonymous to the model because of his infamous slow chase in connection with the murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend. The auto maker was due to reveal the new SUVs on July 9 but had to push back the date after people noticed it coincided with Simpson's 73rd birthday last Thursday, something Ford insisted was unintentional. United Auto Workers leader, Todd Dunn, who represents about 20,000 workers, said the delay was the 'right thing to do' and Nicole's sister told the Detroit Free Press in June that it was 'was a smart move on their part, a respectful move'.  'This was a horrible crime, a horrible murder. Why give somebody that attention, once again?' Tanya Brown said addressing opinions that the release helps glamorize domestic violence after Simpson was infamously acquitted in the murder case of Nicole and Ronald Goldman.
