In a touching column, Anne Roumanoff addressed her support to all these traders on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

    A Washington, D.C., restaurant famous for feeding the homeless is now struggling to stay open because of coronavirus lockdowns. "Business was doing very well," owner of Sakina Halal Grill, Kazi Mannan, said. "Before COVID-19 hit, we were feeding 70 to 80 people free meals a day." "We were closed for four months during the pandemic," Mannan said. “Each time we would re-open, we sit all day with no customers. Eventually we would just shut down and let the employees go.” He said that before the pandemic, he had a steady stream of both paying customers and those in need.

    A traveling ICU nurse who has been treating COVID-19 patients said she often sees "regret" from her patients for not taking action to prevent contracting the virus. Lydia Mobley, who is a traveling nurse with Fastaff, which is deploying nurses across the country, told CBSN's Lana Zak that "a common thing we hear is they didn't think coronavirus was real, they didn't think it was serious." "It's hard to watch someone struggling to breathe and see the regret that they have —  the regret for just not wearing a mask, or maybe not going to a party, or maybe not going to that wedding or not going to that church service," Mobley said. "In the end, people are dying because they just didn't realize the seriousness of that situation. And It's hard to watch."

    Many F1 drivers were keen to get out onto the track ahead of this Sunday’s Turkish Grand Prix. Little did they know, the track surface would almost be akin to driving on ice! It took two free practice sessions to get some kind of grip on the track at Istanbul Park. Even at the end of it, no driver came even close to Juan Pablo Montoya’s lap record of 1:24:770, set in the year 2005. Drivers will hope that the warmer weather influences the track temperature for better handling and grip. However, the question that really needs to be asked here is, why are they struggling in the first place? F1 drivers found the Turkish Grand Prix track to be quite ‘slippery’ Understandably, many drivers were finding it hard to brake late and swiveled around the corners. A similar concern of gripping had occurred at Portimao, but Lewis Hamilton found...

    LAS VEGAS — Redshirt freshman Graham Mertz made a strong first impression in his debut as Wisconsin’s starting quarterback. Nearly a month later, Mertz still is waiting to make his second start. The Badgers, tangled in a COVID-19 web, have not played and rarely have practiced since Mertz completed 20 of 21 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns in a 45-7 victory over Illinois on Oct. 23. Despite the team’s inactivity and uncertainty surrounding Mertz, Wisconsin has been bet to a 4½-point favorite against Michigan in Ann Arbor on Saturday. Bettors are obviously down on the Wolverines, who opened as 2-point favorites and are off back-to-back poor performances in losses to Indiana and Michigan State. Michigan’s sudden demise has put coach Jim Harbaugh on the hot seat. Wisconsin will be missing at least 10 players as part of the Big Ten’s protocol, which mandates a 21-day absence for players...

    College basketball was robbed of a postseason in March because of the coronavirus. Eight months later, college football is in a race to the finish with an eerily similar surge of COVID-19 cases around the country. “The whole thing is going to hell. I don’t know how we finish,” an FBS head coach told Yahoo Sports. This weekend alone, 13 games have been postponed or canceled because of COVID-19 outbreaks. That includes four games in the SEC and games featuring three of the top five teams in the country — No. 1 Alabama at LSU, No. 3 Ohio State at Maryland and No. 5 Texas A&M at Tennessee.

    As consumers spend more time at home, ditching work clothes and suits for yoga pants and sweats, you would think that sports apparel brand Under Armour would be thriving. But the company that urged athletes to "Fight on Together" has fallen on tough times. While the brand's sweat-wicking performance gear is popular among athletes, it might not be resonating with consumers the way it used to. Analysts say an athleisure boom is being fueled by a desire for comfort and a newfound interest in health and wellness. But consumers are also interested in style and fashion, which is why rivals like Nike, Adidas and Lululemon are doing so well.

    Getty Eagles LB Nate Gerry has been under intense scrutiny for a variety of reasons this year — on the field and off the field. Maybe the reason there has been so much criticism hurled at Nate Gerry is that everyone is missing what he does best. Eagles linebackers coach Ken Flajole defended the injured starter by saying Gerry’s “unnoticed production” is what makes him so valuable. The MIKE linebacker has gotten the team out of a lot of “bad downs” with his calls at the line of scrimmage. Just like Batman, Gerry is a dark-winged ninja in the night. Sometimes unseen, almost always getting the job done. When the Eagles need to adjust the front or get into the right call, the 6-foot-2, 230-pounder is there to answer the bat signal. Gerry has been very valuable to the Eagles in 2020, according to Flajole. Pro Football Focus...

    And poof. It was gone. Democrats harbored aspirations of a Democratic House, Democratic Senate and Joe Biden in the White House. There were sugarplum dreams of eliminating the Senate filibuster.

    THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Midway through Sean McVay’s fourth season in charge of the Los Angeles Rams, his team’s identity has flipped. The coach who revolutionized offensive football for the Rams when he arrived in town now presides over a squad being carried by its defense. The innovative tactical mind that inspired countless copycats and propelled his offensive disciples to head coaching jobs of their own is now trying to coax consistency from many of the same offensive players who were here in 2017. McVay is also marveling at the work being done by his newest rising assistant, wunderkind defensive coordinator Brandon Staley. Los Angeles (5-3) is an NFC contendes yet again because of Staley’s defense — and because the offense can still move the ball, ranking sixth in the league in total yards (396.4). But because LA can’t finish those drives with consistent points, the spotlight on Jared...

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,...
    LIVERPOOL would have been heading into the international break top of the table without VAR. Jurgen Klopp's side were denied a late winner at Everton by the tightest of offside calls against Sadio Mane. 2Here's how the English top-flight would look without the input of VAR Last season's champions have also been on the receiving end of more VAR calls against them than any other side. Across Stanley Park, though, Carlo Ancelotti's Everton will be grateful to the Stockley Park monitor men whose decisions have earned them three points - worth SIX places in the table - so far this season. Manchester United can also breathe a sigh of relief as they would be even further down the table without the input of VAR. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, who are currently 14th, would drop down one place. Arsenal would move up one spot to tenth while Chelsea remain...
    Disney cast members welcome guests to Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort.(Photo by Kent Phillips/Walt Disney World Resort via Getty Images) Shares of Disney were up more than 9% Monday after drugmakers Pfizer and BioNTech reported positive results from their Covid-19 vaccine trial, leading investors to flock back toward travel-heavy stocks. Traders have spent the last several months piling into technology stocks that benefitted from people staying at home, such as Zoom Video and Peloton. But after the pharmaceutical companies announced their vaccine was more than 90% effective in preventing Covid-19 among those without evidence of prior infection, investors seemed to step back from the high-flying names and flocked toward companies that would benefit from the economy reopening. Disney has continued to feel the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, with its parks and studio entertainment segments suffering steep losses. The pandemic also forced the company to lay off...

    The Toronto Raptors’ time in the Orlando Bubble was short-lived. The high-flying Boston Celtics forced the defending champions out in the conference semis. However, as fate would have it, they may again experience a bubble-like feeling in the upcoming season. The Canadian government has got some really strict COVID-19 regulations placed around foreigners traveling to their land. Now, the league has scheduled a tight 72-game NBA card, set to begin on December 22. Neither the players nor the league would want the teams to serve a quarantine period every time they play the Raptors in their home court.

Those are Newark’s Prudential Center, Barclays Center (sharing with the Nets), Kansas City, or the Tampa Bay area. However, in the more quintessential approach, the Masai Ujiri led franchise...
    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's government will give extra support to prevent families going hungry or without essential items this winter, a climbdown after resisting calls by footballer Marcus Rashford to extend free school meals to disadvantaged children. Britain's work and pensions department said it would provide a new 170 million pound ($223 million) Winter Grant scheme to local councils, with at least 80% earmarked for support with food and bills until the end of March, among other provisions. The government has been under pressure to help those on low incomes to feed their children especially after more people have lost jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but parliament, where the governing Conservatives have a majority, voted against extending free school meal vouchers last month. "We want to make sure vulnerable people feel cared for throughout this difficult time and, above all, no one should go hungry or be unable to...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Business owners already struggling because of the coronavirus pandemic are getting hit again, this time with summonses and fines for not following COVID guidelines. Lorraine Gericke, manager of Best Tress Hair Salon, was told by a city inspector she was doing it all wrong, using a notebook to write down customers’ temperatures and information for contact tracing. “They’re slapping us with a $1,000 fine, which is so unfair,” she told CBS2’s Dave Carlin.

    Dazzling, beautiful and bold, sea stars once painted the waters of the Central Coast in a kaleidoscope of shapes and color. Though some sea stars are recovering from the 2013 wasting epidemic, others, like Monterey Bay’s once-abundant sunflower star, may never be coming back, say sea star experts. “What we found when the epidemic hit is that there were definite winners and losers,” said Joe Gaydos, Science Director for the marine conservation program SeaDoc Society. Of the more than 2,000 species of sea stars, the winners seem to be the rarer species. “The losers were a few of the most common ones, the highest density ones, like the orange, purple and brown ones, the ochre stars you see at the beach. They just got whacked.” The other species that took a big hit are the sunflower stars, 3-and-a-half foot squishy giants which were once as common in subtidal waters as...

    DENVER (CBS4)– Business owners say Denver’s new home at 10 p.m. order while better than a full shutdown, is still a blow to their operations. The restaurant and music venue Roxy on Broadway went from celebrating a successful first year to surviving the next. (credit: CBS) “It’s been rough,” Yves Rhone, a host at the establishment said. He’s been there since the opening last July and while he loves his job, he says it’s become increasingly hard to hold on to. “I’m not making nearly what I used to… me just making my rent is a struggle, picking up odd jobs during the day isn’t what I ever thought I had to do,” he said.

    AVONDALE — Small businesses struggling to survive the coronavirus pandemic can get a lifeline through a new state program with a lot of money left to give. In an effort to save Illinois’ struggling small business community, Gov. JB Pritkzer launched the $636 million Business Interruption Grant (BIG) program. So far, the state has awarded grants to 4,000 small business owners across the state, half of them minority owners. But the program has $175 million left to give and officials are urging small business owners, especially Latino and Black business owners, to apply and take advantage of the program. “I know this may seem strange or unlikely, but the government has lots of money and we want to give it to you,” State Rep. Will Guzzardi said at a Friday morning press conference. “If you’re a small business owner, we want to give you this money. We want to give it...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – While the coronavirus continues to infect North Texans, Dallas ISD believes the pandemic is “negatively affecting” academic growth for its students. The school district says more students are falling behind. Students took a test in September to measure academic progress and show specifically how much reading and math was retained from last year. Dallas ISD defined the results as “atrocious.” For example, last year, 40% of third graders passed their math test. Six months after the beginning of this school year, where students learned from home due to schools shut down, only 13% of those students passed the same test. In virtually every grade, the measure of academic progress has dropped and the school district says online learning and high absenteeism is hurting students’ achievement rates. “Up to half of our students are at a worse position for math and 30%  are at a worse position in...
    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Pittsburgh was expected to take a step forward and be one of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s top teams in 2020. Florida State was presumed to have a dominant defense and return to prominence in the league. Neither program has found much success but each looks to return to the field following a bye week with a victory that they hope will build confidence for the final month of the season. The Panthers (3-4, 2-4 ACC) have allowed 30 or more points in four straight games, all of them losses, and Pittsburgh has been without starting quarterback Kenny Pickett in the last two games. Meanwhile, the Seminoles (2-4, 1-4) have given up 35 points per game and have allowed more than 500 offensive yards in their last three games. Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi empathizes with the challenge that Florida State’s Mike Norvell has had, taking...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans made very clear they have no time to wait for their defense to improve, with the NFL’s worst unit on third down contributing to a two-game skid. A team that reached the AFC championship game last January is too busy trying not to waste a 5-0 start. They traded for cornerback Desmond King on Monday, waived veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph on Tuesday and told outside linebacker Vic Beasley Jr. he would be released Wednesday. Some bad snaps also cost long snapper Beau Brinkley his job after 135 games with the franchise. “We don’t make moves to send messages,” general manager Jon Robinson said Wednesday. “We make moves to try to help us win football games.” Beasley is the Titans’ biggest and costliest mistake this year. They signed him to a one-year deal worth $9.5 million, betting coach Mike Vrabel with his experience...
    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Troubled Mexican airline Interjet resumed flights Wednesday and pledged to pay back wages owed its employees, after the carrier suspended flights for three days, citing cash flow and maintenance issues. Interjet has said it has suffered because of a drop-off in revenues due to the coronavirus pandemic. In a statement, the company pledged to pay back wages “as soon as possible.” The government consumer protection agency issued an alert Tuesday warning about “the risk of establishing commercial relationships” with the airline, noting “repeated failure to comply” with its responsibilities. The agency said the carrier “for the last several months has faced various problems in operating its business.” The agency said Interjet had been plagued by “the suspension of various international routes, failures to pay employees, the suspension of its license to operate international air service to Canada and tax liens on its bank accounts, assets...

    CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bears weren’t exactly beating their opponents in convincing fashion even when they were piling up the victories. Now, the losses are starting to add up. And so is the frustration. The NFL suspended receiver Javon Wims two games Monday for punching New Orleans Saints safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson. He was ejected in the third quarter Sunday after Allen Robinson caught a 5-yard pass from Nick Foles on the other side of the field. Bears coach Matt Nagy said Wims was “apologetic” when they spoke Monday and understands “you can’t do what he did.” But Nagy would not say what led to the altercation. “Obviously out of respect I’m going to keep that between us and internally,” he said. The Bears (5-3), meanwhile, have dropped two in a row. They rallied from 10 down against New Orleans in the closing minutes of regulation, only to lose...
    The U.S. Postal Service is seeing more delays in delivering the mail, with the agency disclosing last week that about 20% of all letters and packages sent around the country in the week ended October 23 were late. Mail-in ballots, which are tracked separately by the Postal Service, are also taking longer in some swing states to reach election officials.  To be sure, the USPS is prioritizing ballot delivery, which has a higher on-time delivery rate than general first-class mail. Even so, about 1 in 10 mail-in ballots aren't arriving on time, and the rates are worse for some regions, including those in several important swing states. For instance, only about 7 in 10 ballots mailed in the Postal Service's Central Pennsylvania region were delivered on time to election officials during the week ended October 31, according to data released by the U.S. Postal Service following a court order after lawsuits...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Ramsey County officials on Monday announced that landlords with tenants who have been unable to make rent payments due to COVID-19 may be eligible for one-time assistance grants.

    WARSAW – Driven by new solidarity, Poles have been buying armloads of chrysanthemums to help out flower vendors who unexpectedly faced bankruptcy when the government ordered all cemeteries locked due to COVID-19 during a traditional memorial weekend. The first day of November - All Saints' Day - and the day after are among key holidays in this predominantly Catholic nation, when tens of millions of Poles visit the graves of their loved ones. They always bring bunches or pots of chrysanthemums and memorial candles that they buy around the cemetery entrances before carrying them through the throng.

    Every day, almost every one of Nicolle Fefferman’s students logs into her virtual classrooms at John Marshall High School in Los Feliz. A significant number do not turn their cameras on. Many don’t respond when she asks questions and don’t turn in work she assigns offline. When the history teacher issued her 10-week progress reports, nearly one-third of her students were failing. “I have almost 100% attendance. But that doesn’t necessarily mean 100% participation,” Fefferman said. “They’re showing up, but they’re not necessarily engaging.” It’s midterm time, and inside their virtual classrooms teachers and students alike are being tested in ways that show the exhausting challenges teachers face working to keep drifting students engaged, the increasing anxiety and pressure many students are feeling and the stubborn remnants of the digital divide that continue to hobble learning. Interviews with a diversity of teachers throughout Los Angeles County offer detailed snapshots behind...
    PEMBROKE (CBS) – Pembroke is now home to a unity campaign. Shawn Flores co-owns the Acme Print Company and they took a giant hit when the pandemic struck. “Initially, we went to almost zero revenue,” Flores told WBZ-TV. “Our schedule was empty.” That’s when he heard about the idea of the unity campaign – printing companies making T-shirts for struggling businesses, so their fans had another way to support them during the shutdown. So Acme got to work right away for concert venues, tattoo shops, restaurants and more. “The retail cost of the shirt had a 19 price point on it. Out of that $19, we took $10 right off the top and sent it to that business,” Flores said. After expenses, Acme was able to take home $2 or $3 for themselves. And the campaign took off like wildfire – dozens of businesses and thousands of T-shirts. One of...

    Sources are claiming that Prince William secretly contracted the novel coronavirus back in April and faced a difficult recovery process — with the duke struggling to breath at the most serious part of his illness. According to The Sun, the prince contracted the virus shortly after his own father, Prince Charles, and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson were similarly struck down with the disease. Though Prince Charles only displayed mild symptoms, Johnson had a much more severe case and spent time in the intensive care unit. Questions about the prime minister’s health had caused panic throughout the country, and Prince William allegedly did not want to cause further alarm by disclosing his own status. “He just didn’t want to worry people,” the source said. “He felt there were more important things going on in the country.

Restaurant closings: IHOP may close up to 100 underperforming locations amid the pandemic Impact of the Julian Edelman injury for the struggling Patriots It has been hard, to say the least, to be a New England Patriots fan this year. Pats fans have gotten used to a decades-long dynasty, helmed by a quarterback who could easily be considered the greatest of all time, and consistent near-perfect seasons. Wide receiver Julian Edelman has also been a major component to that. © Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports Cam Newton, who admits his job is on the line if he doesn’t play better, is throwing to an undrafted wide receiver in Jakobi Meyers because Edelman underwent knee surgery earlier this week and was placed on injured reserve. Newton didn’t even target Edelman in Week 7 until he was benched at the end of...
    Running back Tevin Coleman hadn’t played since Week 2 due to a knee injury, but with Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson, Jr. on injured reserve, the 49ers were eager to welcome him back to the practice field this week. Unfortunately for Coleman and the 49ers’ rushing attack, his return didn’t last long. Coleman has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with another knee injury, leaving the 49ers with only two healthy running backs. Coleman rushed three times for 20 yards on Sunday and was ruled out early in the second half with the 49ers trailing 20-7. Undrafted rookie JaMycal Hasty has been the 49ers’ leading rusher, but hasn’t been able to match the effectiveness of the other tailbacks the team has used this season. Hasty had 12 carries for 29 yards when Coleman was ruled out for the rest...
    Lamar Jackson is going backwards and it’s costing the Ravens dearly. The story of the 2019 NFL regular season was clearly Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback Lamar Jackson, who put together an incredible statistical season on his way to the MVP award. Jackson fell short in the playoffs but his tremendous performance led to a thought that the Ravens had found their answer to Patrick Mahomes in the AFC. The bloom is off the rose for Jackson this year and today’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers was the biggest evidence yet of Jackson’s regression. Losing left tackle Ronnie Stanley to injury early didn’t help, but Jackson was incredibly sloppy with the football, losing two fumbles and throwing a pair of interceptions in the 28-24 loss. Jackson is also demonstrating less accuracy, completing just 60.5 percent of his passes over Baltimore’s first seven games, a significant drop from his 66.1 percent mark...
    Prince William secretly battled coronavirus in April - days after his father Charles contracted it - and was left 'struggling to breathe,' according to a report. The Duke of Cambridge, 38, did not reveal he was sick because he didn't want to alarm the public. William caught the virus in April after the Prince of Wales and Prime Minister Boris Johnson fell ill. The Duke was treated by palace physicians and quarantined at the family home of Anmer Hall in Norfolk. 'There were important things going on and I didn't want to worry anyone,' the Duke said at an engagement, according to The Sun.  Prince William, President of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, during a visit to The Royal Marsden in Sutton to meet staff and patient on October 21

    I dont want these dogs to suffer: Pet surrenders becoming tragic part of pandemic Every states most famous restaurant Struggling Vikings unwilling to trade star WR Adam Thielen? There are a number of teams that would like to add a wide receiver in advance of Tuesday’s trade deadline, and Vikings wideout Adam Thielen would probably pique the interest of all of those clubs. However, as Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports, Minnesota has no intention of dealing its 30-year-old receiver. © Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports It appears Adam Thielen will be staying put in Minnesota. The Vikes are 1-5 and have already sold off one major asset by trading Yannick Ngakoue. They are also willing to deal safety Anthony Harris. However, both Ngakoue and Harris are set to hit free agency at the end of the season, while Thielen is under club control through 2024. And while Minnesota looks dead in the water...
    BRASILIA (Reuters) - U.S. automaker Ford Motor Co said on Saturday it had closed the sale of one of its factories in Brazil to civil construction and logistics firm Construtora Sao Jose and asset manager FRAM Capital, without disclosing the price. A previous agreement to sell the factory in Sao Bernardo do Campo, which makes the poor-selling Ford Fiesta as well as buses, to Brazilian automaker CAOA fell through last year. Ford subsequently announced it was closing the plant. The Ford statement disclosing the sale to Sao Jose and FRAM did not give any details on the transaction.
