    BOSTON (CBS) – From lawnmowers to refrigerators, there are supply chain problems at companies all around the world. George Washington Toma TV & Appliance, Inc., in Weymouth has been around for years. But never have they gone through a period like they are experiencing now during the coronavirus pandemic. READ MORE: Massachusetts State Police Launch New Body Camera Program COVID has slammed the brakes on everything, from steel and aluminum production, to electronic control boards. “What’s happened is there’s shortages of everything,” said Alan Stern of George Washington Toma. “So we’re seeing large back orders on things, like dishwashers and refrigeration.” One of the world’s biggest manufacturers of compressors for refrigerators is in Brazil, and production has been drastically curtailed. Even factories in Massachusetts have been slowed by COVID. READ MORE: Online Traffic Jam As Second Doses Edge Out First Dose COVID-19 Vaccinations In Mass. “Men and women, working shoulder...

    Oh, baby. The 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship has blessed us all with the ultimate gold-medal game. After Monday’s semifinals saw four of the “Big Five” powerhouses battle it out for a spot in the championship game, it’s now set with a no-holds-barred, old fashioned North American showdown as Canada and the United States going toe-to-toe at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alta.  This meeting was almost inevitable; Hockey Canada and USA Hockey were on a collision course after each team won its respective groups. But who will go home happy? These kids have been through a lot to reach this point — quarantines, daily COVID-19 testing, boring meals, Zoom meetings — and now they’ll be looking to leave bubble hockey with the ultimate prize: World Juniors gold. It comes down to just 60 minutes of ice time (unless, like past meetings, overtime or a shootout is needed). Which team will hear their anthem played and...
    Buckle up kids, the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship is about to be pure fire. Monday brings the semifinals and the cream of the crop has risen to the top with four of the “Big Five” powerhouses set to battle it out for a spot in the gold-medal game. Both semis are also rematches of 2020 medal-round meetings and two sides will surely be looking for some revenge.  Canada nabbed the top spot in Group A and the 2021 tournament while the United States won Group B and will face off against Russia and Finland, respectively. Dare we say, this puts the two North American squads on a collision course. But before we get there, let’s delve into the semifinals.

    The 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship hits the medal round Saturday with the quarterfinals. The top eight teams will be going head-to-head in four single-elimination games. Canada nabbed the top spot in Group A and the tournament while the United States won Group B. The Americans have won now their group six times since group play was established in 1996. Dare we say, this puts the two North American squads on a collision course.  Before we get ahead of ourselves, these powerhouses need to get through the quarterfinals and then the semis. In the quarters, they’ll face the third-best team in the opposite bracket, which means the United States will take on Slovakia and the Canadians will meet the Czech Republic.  World Juniors 2021: Quarterfinals predictions (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/c8/c0/can-cze-2-010121-getty-ftrjpeg_tl58x9me6zs71ph468gl1arag.jpeg?t=-1063120138&w=500&quality=80 Canada vs. Czech Republic  The backstory Canada steamrolled the competition in going a perfect 4-0 in the preliminary round, but now begins the true tournament....

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican regulators said Wednesday that the two firms handling the country’s debit or credit card settlement process represent a near monopoly, and have recommended that leading banks be forced to sell off their ownership share in the companies. While many banks issue cards in Mexico, only two firms actually process and settle such electronic transactions. Eight private Mexican banks own a large share of the settlement and processing firms, thus gaining an unfair advantage. The federal Commission on Economic Competition said the lack of competition has resulted in high processing fees, and reduced the incentive for investment in new and safer systems to handle transactions and avoid system breakdowns. It said the combination of high fees and bad service has kept many consumers and small businesses out of the card transaction system. Mexican card systems are prone to frequent breakdowns that prevent consumers from using their...

    The Tennessee Volunteers have been able to take leads into halftime. Unfortunately, when they come out of the locker room for the third quarter, that’s when the horror show starts. The Vols (2-4) have lost four straight in part because they’ve been outscored 61-7 in the third quarter. They wound up blowing a 13-0 lead at Arkansas by giving up 24 unanswered points in the third quarter of the 24-13 loss. It didn’t help when quarterback Jarrett Guarantano appeared to hit his head at the end of a run on Tennessee’s opening drive of the quarter, knocking him out of the game. Coach Jeremy Pruitt said Monday that Guarantano is day to day. The coach did find one positive thing about the disappointing third quarter. Pruitt said the turnovers and penalties that had been an issue in the third didn’t happen against Arkansas. “To me, just philosophically,...
    Clemson has proven its got a capable young replacement for Heisman Trophy contender Trevor Lawrence. The top-ranked Tigers, though, are still searching for consistent answers for a banged-up, depleted defense that faces its biggest test at No. 4 Notre Dame. Clemson (7-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) rallied from 18 points down with freshman DJ Uiagalelei replacing Lawrence, who had tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the showdown against the Fighting Irish (6-0, 5-0 ACC) on Saturday night. It won’t matter who starts at quarterback if the Tigers can’t get their defensive issues under control. Clemson has given up 49 points the past two weeks in wins over Syracuse and Boston College after allowing 60 combined it first five games. Much of that is due to injuries to critical players like linebacker James Skalski, who Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said is the “heart and soul” of...

Here Are Dominos 2020 Christmas Hours, Because Christmas Day Pizza Is Totally a Thing NHL playoff bracket predictions, picks, odds & series breakdowns for 2020 Stanley Cup second round With the first round now complete, the second round of the 2020 Stanley Cup playoffs begins Saturday. Eight teams have punched their ticket to the next stage and are one step closer to winning the sports world's greatest trophy. Remaining in the Toronto and Edmonton bubbles are six of the top eight teams when the coronavirus pandemic hit last March, a team you can never count out (the Islanders), and a dark horse that stands as the last remaining Canadian team (the Canucks). The qualifying round was wacky; the first round was just good old playoff hockey with lots of action, including crazy last-second goals and big-time saves, and one of the longest overtime games in NHL history. What...

    The NHL’s qualifying round is now complete and the 16 teams set to compete in the official 2020 Stanley Cup playoff bracket have been established. Two teams that weren’t even sniffing the postseason when the 2019-20 season was paused are now in (Blackhawks and Canadiens) and are facing two teams that were not sitting atop their respective conferences back then either (Golden Knights and Flyers). Needless to say, the qualifying round was wacky, which means anything can happen as we march towards crowning the 2020 Stanley Cup champs. Will it be an expected team that lifts Lord Stanley’s Cup at the end? Or will it be a darkhorse squad that takes hockey’s top prize? The answer is, nobody knows — and that’s even more evident this year. So take these first-round predictions with a grain of salt because, well, anything goes in bubble hockey.

    A 'non-binary' talking house and fans of princesses 'identifying as male' are among the 'woke' casting requests now being sent out in Hollywood. In a move that is confusing many of Tinseltown's biggest talent agents, the language used in daily 'breakdowns' – private notices sent to managers and casting agents to alert them of forthcoming roles – has transformed. The breakdowns have traditionally included a brief description of the film or TV show and the roles that studios are seeking to fill, such as 'male, 30s, police officer' or 'woman, 20s, sexy mum'. The film is about a child – 'Kid', played by FKA twigs (above)– who sparks human emotions in a property controlled by artificial intelligence But in recent weeks, following Black Lives Matter protests and calls for the movie industry to become more diverse, they have, according to one top agent, become 'increasingly woke and bizarre'.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Gov. JB Pritzker named a new director of the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES), the agency responsible for issuing benefits to the nearly 1.4 million people who lost their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic since early March. On Thursday, Pritzker announced via a news release that Kristin Richards, current Chief of Staff to the Senate President, will serve as director. Tom Chan was the agency’s acting director in the more than four months of the pandemic. He will remain with the agency in his previous role as deputy general counsel, a state spokesperson said. Chan had been with IDES for five years, according to his LinkedIn page. His profile shows he held roles as assistant legal counsel and acting chief general counsel, prior to becoming acting director last March. The leadership change comes after the agency struggled to handle the backlog of an unprecedented surge in unemployment claims due...
    Recently leaked emails from Elon Musk’s Tesla reveal that the company knew in 2012 of a battery design flaw in its Model S vehicles that could cause breakdown and even fires but sold the cars anyway. Business Insider reports that recently leaked emails from 2012 reveal that Tesla was aware of a flaw in the design of the company’s Model S battery that could lead to breakdowns and fires but chose to sell the cars anyway. This news comes as owners of the company’s new Model Y vehicle complain of manufacturing issues including loose seatbelts and back seats. Recently the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) initiated a probe into faulty Tesla Model S touch screens made from 2012-2015, encompassing 63,000 vehicles. The 2012 emails reveal that as Tesla began to ship its Model S vehicles, the company was still dealing with a major design flaw that could lead to leaks inside...
