    New York (CNN Business)Lego is planning to spend more than $1 billion to build a factory in the United States.The company announced Wednesday plans for a 1.7-million square foot plant in Virginia, which will employ roughly 1,800 people once its completed in 2025. It will be the Danish company's seventh global factory and second in North America — the other is located in Monterrey, Mexico.Lego previously had a US factory in Connecticut, but that facility closed in 2006 because the company said kids prefer playing with electronics. Times have changed: Like other toy makers, Lego is in the midst of a pandemic-induced boom as families look for entertainment at home. Its sales jumped 27% last year driven by new store openings in China and customers flocking back to its reopened shops. The family-owned company said it had outpaced the toy industry in all major markets during the year, when sales of its plastic bricks totaled more than $8 billion."More and more families are falling in love with Lego building and we are looking forward to making Lego bricks in the...
    Predicted thunderstorms in New York and a potential snowfall in Minnesota are picking up where baseball's 99-day lockout left off by further delaying the start of the 2022 Major League season. Thursday's matinee between the Yankees and visiting Red Sox was supposed to be the first game of the season, but that and the Twins' opener against the visiting Seattle Mariners have both been pre-emptively postponed due to weather, leaving seven games on the schedule. All-day rain was forecast for Thursday in New York, while frigid Minnesota may be getting some snow. A shot of Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, where the season was supposed to open Thursday A potential snow fall in Minneapolis has postponed Thursday's Twins-Mariners opener  Gerrit Cole of the Yankees and Nathan Eovaldi of the Red Sox had been the scheduled starting pitchers on Thursday. Both teams are expected to compete for an American League Eastern Division crown this year thanks to imposing hitters such as the Yankees' Aaron Judge and the Red Sox' Rafael Devers. Meeting in an opener for the first time...
    As New York state heads down the road of legalizing recreational marijuana, politicians are attempting to give a first crack at supply for sale to those convicted of marijuana-related offenses in the past, as well as a $200million fund to help them.  Governor Kathy Hochul is expected on Thursday to announce the initiative, which could also be taken advantage of by the family members of people convicted of weed-related offenses, the New York Times reported.  The benefits include stockpiled marijuana grown by local farmers for sale and new storefronts leased by the state of New York.  New York legalized marijuana in March of 2021 and under the law signed by a then under fire Governor Andrew Cuomo half of all licenses for growth and sale of marijuana had to come from traditionally disadvantaged groups.   That includes women, minorities, distressed farmers, veterans and 'individuals who have lived in communities disproportionally impacted' by the drug war.  Governor Kathy Hochul is expected on Thursday to announce an initiative that would allow those who'd been convicted of drug crimes in the past to receive...
    Deel CEO Alex BouazizDeel Start-up Deel is betting that more tech companies will search for talent overseas as many continue to hire remotely. The San Francisco-based payments and software company announced a $425 million Series D funding round on Monday, boosting its valuation to $5.5 billion. The latest financing was led by Coatue with participation from Altimeter Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, Spark Capital and others. Deel lets companies hire, onboard and pay employees in different countries, even if they don't have an office in the region. It handles behind-the-scenes tasks like payroll, benefits and tax compliance, and makes money through a subscription model. The start-up now works in more than 150 countries with roughly 4,500 companies, including Coinbase, Intercom and Shopify. Deel's CEO and co-founder, Alex Bouaziz, said the company saw revenue increase by 20 times year over year, helped by a scramble to onboard remote workers and a battle for tech companies to find talent. "During this time period, everyone has understood that you don't need to hire within a 20-mile square radius as long as you've got the right...
    THE theme park dubbed 'UK's Disneyland' is to finally start building work next year. The huge London Resort, to be built on the Swanscombe Peninsula in Kent, confirmed that building will commence from 2022, when the planning application for the project is expected to be accepted. 4The huge London Resort theme park confirmed they will start building next yearCredit: The London Resort 4The new theme park hopes to open by 2024, but has met local oppositionCredit: Getty Despite meeting local opposition after the area was designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to the local wildlife, the park's CEO PY Gerbeau said: "To all the naysayers and doom-mongers, the London Resort is going ahead, as planned." He also announced that the park would be working with three British firms -  Electrosonic, Garmendale and Katapult - with another 65 in the running. Mr Gerbeau added: "It is a day to celebrate British innovation and technological wizardry. “We will be the first theme park across Europe to be built from scratch in nearly 30 years."

    FORMER Conservative Chancellor Nigel Lawson once said that “to govern is to choose”. One of any government’s jobs is to make those tough choices. 2The introduction of the 1.25 per cent levy begins at the start of the next financial year on April 6, 2022 Two massive decisions were made this week: Raising taxes to fund health and social care; and suspending the triple lock on pensions for a year. Chancellor Rishi Sunak has done a good job of explaining the thinking behind the one-year adjustment to the pensions triple lock. It ensures that pensions still rise — but not by a figure approaching ten per cent, as many working people face a squeeze. On the horizon are a Budget and a three-year spending review at the end of October to decide how much we will be taxed and what we spend on public services. But the 363 Conservative MPs who sit in the Commons are fully aware they are breaking two manifesto commitments. These decisions are not taken lightly by anyone. Concerns remain over the big decision on health...
    Will the Knicks start Derrick Rose or Kemba Walker next season? Alexander Wilson September 2, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The Knicks now have the luxury of creating different combinations of players for the 2021-22 season. Last year, head coach Tom Thibodeau had trouble finding multiple lineups they could play at an efficient level. With a lack of talent at various positions, including point guard and center, the Knicks forced some of the regular starters to play far more than desirable. This upcoming year, the hope is to give their primary players more rest to mitigate fatigue over a full 82-game season. Drafting Quentin Grimes, Miles McBride, and second-year players Immanuel Quickley and Obi Toppin should provide just that. Don’t forget reserve options like Nerlens Noel and Alec Berks, who can contribute immediately on multiple levels. The most important part of creating combinations is having adequate talent so weaknesses don’t bleed through. One position that is facing an interesting conundrum is point guard, as the...
    Getty N'Keal Harry The New England Patriots didn’t include N’Keal Harry on the 53-man roster, but it appears they will be holding on to the 2019 first-round pick–at least for now. Per the NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Harry was placed on injured reserve while his injured shoulder continues to heal. #Patriots placing WR N’Keal Harry (shoulder) on IR. Should be back in a few weeks. — Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 1, 2021 Players placed on IR must miss at least 3 games, and it is hopeful, that is all Harry will miss on this stint. Harry is now guaranteed to fail to play in all 16 games of an NFL season in each of the three years he’s been in the NFL. As a rookie, Harry played in just 7 contests, starting 5 games. Last season, he was more available playing in 14 of the 16 contests and starting 9 times. While he was on the field more in 2020, Harry still struggled to distinguish himself. He had just 33 receptions for 309 yards and 2 TDs. That...
    The story of Henrik Fisker and the resurrection of his car firm, namesake, it seems like a never ending story. More than anything, because it has been working to relaunch it since the founding on October 3, 2016 and to this day it has not yet put any model on the street. It is true that in recent months he has managed to make his project take a few more steps, mainly with the Fisker ocean. In fact, he has already said when he will enter production… But before that, we will do a brief summary of the last steps that the Fisker Ocean has taken. If you do a little memory, the last news we had from him was a couple of months ago. Last June, the CEO of the firm announced that next November it will release its main technical data. But it was not the only data that he gave, because he dropped that his arrival on the market would be in the fourth quarter of 2022. Will he keep his word …? What precision…!...
    Crown Media Season 8 of Hallmark’s “When Calls the Heart” might have just finished airing, but plans are already in the works for season 9. The series creator Brian Bird recently revealed how close they are to starting filming for the new season.‘When Calls the Heart’ Will Start Filming in Just Six WeeksIn an interview with Charisma Podcast Network’s Greenelines podcast and host Dr. Steve Greene, Bird revealed that season 9 will begin filming in just six weeks. Because the interview took place on June 14, this puts the start of filming as happening roughly around the week of July 19-23. “We will start shooting Season 9 in just about six weeks,” Bird said. “…(Last season) we shot for 78 days without one case of COVID last year.” He said that prep for shooting starts about a month before filming begins. And although he believes they will still have quite a few COVID-19 protocols to follow when filming, “it won’t have to be quite as rigorous as it was last year.” Last year, filming protocols were so rigorous that...
    BRITS are expected to get a different Covid vaccine as a booster than the one they’ve already received, a leaked memo reveals.  The mix-and-match method could improve protection against the coronavirus, early studies suggest. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest updates 2People could get a third jab from autumn - but it may be different to the first two they receivedCredit: EPA Ministers hope it will also give immunity against new dangerous variants of Covid, some of which have the ability to escape immunity. The Delta (Indian) variant now dominant in the UK weakens the effects of the current vaccines in use, data shows. But a booster jab could make sure the most vulnerable are protected from severe disease over the winter. The leaked Government memo, seen by the Mail on Sunday, said “it is likely people will be recommended to receive a different brand of vaccine to the brand they received previously during this inaugural programme”. It also detailed that the booster programme will be rolled out in the same way as the current one, with...
    Prime Video is becoming the exclusive home of Thursday Night Football earlier than expected. The NFL and Amazon said today that their new distribution deal will kick off with the 2022 season instead of the 2023 season as previously announced. The now 11-year agreement will see Prime Video carry 15 Thursday Night Football games and one pre-season match per year through the end of the 2032 season. Outside of the streaming service, you’ll have the chance to catch those games on your local broadcast affiliate if you’re home team is involved. “This expedited deal is an immediate differentiator for us as a service, as it gives Prime members exclusive access to the most popular sport in the United States.” Marie Donoghue, the vice president of global sports video at Amazon, said . The NFL’s deal with Amazon marks the first time the league has sold exclusive national broadcast rights to a streaming service. With today’s announcement, Fox will stop airing Thursday Night Football after one last season. Since 2017, you’ve been able to watch those games on Amazon, Fox...
    Alongside the Galaxy Book Pro, Pro 360 and Odyssey, Samsung announced a fourth computer at its recent Unpacked event. The Galaxy Book doesn’t come with features like an RTX GPU or AMOLED display, but makes up for it with a more affordable price tag. For around $800, you’ll get a laptop with a 15.4-inch LCD display and 15.4mm thick casing that Samsung will offer in two colors: Mystic Silver and Mystic Blue. Depending on the market, the Galaxy Book will have dramatically different internals. In developing countries, you’ll see it with an Intel Celeron or Pentium Gold processor. By contrast, in more mature markets like the US and Canada, the standard will be Intel’s latest 11th-generation CPUs with Iris X graphics. The same is true of memory, with the base model in some countries coming with 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The max, no matter where you buy it, is 16GB. Storage, meanwhile, starts at 256GB with an NVMe SSD allowing you to add up to 1TB of storage to the laptop. Powering everything is a 54Wh battery, and rounding out...
    Friday, March 26, 2021. 2:41 pm Left-handed pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez will not be the opening pitcher for opener Boston Red Sox. Manager Alex Cora announced the news on Friday. Cora will instead give the ball to right-handed player Nathan Evaldi to do a season kick-off at Fenway Park against the Baltimore Orioles. The Red Sox manager explained that Rodriguez’s hand would not allow him to dance. Rodriguez missed the 2020 season after being diagnosed with inflammatory myocarditis of the heart associated with Govit-19. Rodriguez, 28, got into trouble on Monday in his fourth start on Monday, giving up two runs, three wins and two walks in two innings against the Tampa Bay Race. Cora said Rodriguez could keep his place in the rotation, avoiding an obstacle on the injured list. Rodriguez finished sixth for the Sai Young Trophy in 2019, then set a 19-6 record with a 3.81 ERA and 213 strikeouts in 34 starts. The 31-year-old Evalti was 4-2 last year with an 3.72 epoch. He had 52 strikeouts in 48.1 innings, while conceding seven runs....
    Anti-Asian racism has spiked in recent weeks, but anti-Asian violence has happened for years. I've spent my life witnessing and experiencing racism, but I've grown to embrace my Chinese heritage. This Lunar New Year, it's more important than ever to celebrate where I'm from. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. This piece contains racial slurs and detailed accounts of racial violence. On January 28, Vicha Ratanapakdee, an 84-year-old Thai man, was killed in San Francisco when 19-year-old Antoine Watson shoved him to the ground. On February 3, Noel Quintana, a 61-year-old Filipino man, was slashed across the face on New York City subway train and was offered no help from straphangers. The same day, a 64-year-old Vietnamese woman in San Jose was followed and robbed of $1000 in cash she had withdrawn in preparation for Lunar New Year. Reports of anti-Asian violence have spiked in recent weeks, part of a pattern that began in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic and anti-Chinese rhetoric promoted by former president Donald Trump. But none of this is new; the pandemic has only...
    Spanish Television gives the starting gun for know the new song by Blas Cantó for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. At dawn, and to the surprise of the audience, TVE issued the first promo in which it announced that on February 10 you can start voting for one of the two candidacies. Blas sang with his team preparing Eurovision 2020 « Hi, I’m Blas Cantó », this is how the singer himself welcomes us in the middle of what seems to be a corridor of the public television studios. Not to mention how such voting can be done or when or how the songs can be heard for the first time, the promotion makes it clear that the vote falls on the audience: « This year, you choose ». Without official confirmation by the public entity, what we can guess is the name that the preselection gala will receive of the song: ‘Destination Eurovision’. In this way, TVE would recover the name used in the galas of the years 2003, 2004, and 2011; and the variation of the year 2013, ‘El Sueño...
    The first rival of Fernando Alonso in 2021, like that of every pilot, he will be his teammate. Although in Alpine they are aware that the Asturian will start at a disadvantage compared to the rest of the grid after having been two years away from Formula 1, said handicap could be accentuated with respect to Esteban Ocon, who has raced this season at Renault and who is more suited to the car and its team of engineers. That is why Sergey sirotkin, who has been the reserve driver for the French team in 2020, expects a close fight between the two at the beginning. “I think that, at least in the initial stage, the fight between Alonso and Ocon will be very close. In addition, Esteban helped himself a lot by winning the podium: in Abu Dhabi you could tell that he seemed to have lowered a load from his shoulders, that he could roll more relaxed, and in races this is very important: when you are tense, you lose. Esteban will understand the team and the car better....

    Tesla is preparing to push into a potentially vast market for its electric vehicles. Reports have suggested the company will expand into India in early 2021. While that might not occur as soon as January, CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter the move would happen “definitely this year.” No, but definitely this year — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 27, 2020 The country’s transport minister, Nitin Gadkari, told the Indian Express that Tesla may consider assembly and manufacturing in India depending on the response. The first Tesla EV to arrive in the country will be the Model 3, which will start at around 5.5 million rupees ($74,800), according to the Economic Times. The report adds that Tesla may open up orders for the EV in January and start deliveries by June. Residents were previously able to preorder the Model 3 in 2016.
    How we phrase New Year's resolutions is key in determining whether or not the start-of-year promise will be adhered to, a new study suggests.  Scientists found people are 12 per cent more likely to stick to their resolution for a year if they avoid making vows such as 'I will quit...', or 'I will avoid...' and instead say 'I will start...'.  The world's largest ever study on New Year's resolutions tracked 1,066 people who made a promise at the end of 2017 for the approaching year.  This graph shows the amount of people who stuck to their New Year's resolutions over the course of 12 months. Those who had an 'approach goal' such as saying 'I will start...' instead of 'I will quit...' were 12 per cent more likely to be successful 12 months later   Less than half (47 per cent) of people who said they would either quit or avoid something were successful by the end of the year.  In contrast, 59 per cent of people who had an 'approach goal' were successful.     Researchers of the study from Stockholm...

Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images The Denver Broncos has no active quarterbacks available for its game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

    White House COVID-19 testing expert Brett Giroir said on Wednesday that the nation was a 'critical point' in its pandemic response and that if more people didn't start following the rules, more 'draconian measures' could be ahead even though deaths are declining.  There has been an increase in the number of cases in the US in recent months which has led to fears of a second wave.  The US now has 8,781,354 cases and there have been 226,752 deaths.  But the death rate and hospitalization rate is slowing compared to how it rapidly spiked in March and April.

The Los Angeles Dodgers pulled off a big win by beating the Atlanta Braves 3-1 in Game 6 of the NLCS on Saturday at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas to force a Game 7. Just getting the win was a huge victory for the Dodgers, but it also brings up a big question: who will pitch Game 7? © Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The Braves are pitching Ian Anderson, who has been stellar in the postseason this year. The 22-year-old rookie hasn’t allowed a run in 15.2 innings over three starts. He has only allowed six hits, while striking out 22. So what will be the answer for the Dodgers? As of Saturday evening following Game 6, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts did not have an answer, but he did provide some clues.

    There was a lot of noise surrounding Cam Newton when he arrived in Boston earlier this year. Head coach Bill Belichick spent the entire tenure of his New England Patriots career with Tom Brady on his roster. This is the first season that he will be without Brady’s services which is a unique challenge in itself. However, Newton has proven himself more than capable of replacing TB12 ever since the league began in September. The Patriots travel to Missouri to play Kansas City Chiefs on the weekend. But it seems like Newton will not make the squad after recent developments.

    At least four teachers in three states have died after bouts with the coronavirus since the dawn of the new school year, including a 28-year-old third-grade teacher in South Carolina.   It has left a teachers' union leader worried that the return to in-person classes will have a deadly impact across the U.S. if proper precautions aren't taken. In some districts, the return to classrooms has already seen schools forced to switch back to online learning and send students and staff into quarantine after potential exposure to the virus.  In Brooklyn, two staffers tested positive for coronavirus Tuesday just a day after teachers and staff returned to the building.  Among the teacher casualties since the start of the academic year was elementary school teacher Demetria 'Demi' Bannister, who died Monday just three days after she was diagnosed with the virus. Three other teachers in Mississippi and Missouri have died since the start of the school year.  South Carolina third-grade teacher Demetria 'Demi' Bannister, 28, died Monday just three days after she was diagnosed with coronavirus.

    (CNN)Chicago Public Schools, the nation's third-largest school system, will start the coming school year with fully remote learning for all students due to the coronavirus pandemic, the district announced Wednesday.The decision could avoid a possible strike from the Chicago Teachers Union. The district will implement remote learning through the first quarter, which ends November 9, and then will evaluate if it is safe to open in a hybrid learning model."As a district, we value parent feedback and we cannot overlook that a large percentage of parents have indicated they do not feel comfortable sending their students to school under a hybrid model for the start of the school year," said CPS CEO Janice K. Jackson in a statement. Schools find theres no one size fits all approach to returning to campus during coronavirus outbreak"I understand the uncertainty this pandemic has caused our parents, especially communities of color who have been disproportionately impacted. We are making every possible effort to provide a high-quality remote learning experience in the fall, utilizing live, virtual instruction for every student, every day, and we are...
    (CNN)At this point in the Covid-19 pandemic, we each have our own list of our biggest coronavirus concerns. But there's one question that unites many of us, and that's "What is the next school year going to look like?"The answer to that question will depend on where you live -- and not just because that determines what state rules and regulations will apply.As usual with the coronavirus, the pandemic has compounded problems that existed before it emerged -- especially for Black folks and people of color. And if you want to find an institution that demonstrates that reality, there may not be a better place to look than America's public school system. America is on a brink like none since the Civil WarRight now, there are about 98,500 public schools across the US with nearly 51 million students enrolled. But those schools are not created equal because public education is in large part funded by the taxes of the district they are located in.The ratio of how much federal, state and local money is used varies across the country....
              Columbus City Schools (CCS) Superintendent/CEO Dr. Talisa Dixon announced Tuesday that Ohio’s largest school district will start the 2020-2021 school year virtually. CCS will be online for the first quarter for the next school year. The first quarter of the school year will start September 8 and end October 27. In a letter sent to the CCS community, Dixon said the school district hoped to start the school year with in-person classes, but the risk of returning 50,000 students and 9,000 employees to its buildings was “far too great.” Dixon said the school district will continue to examine the public health conditions before deciding when CCS will resume in-person classes. “I understand that this news of starting back in the fall with a fully virtual learning model will please many parents and families. I also know that many will not be pleased with the decision,” Dixon said. “However, ultimately, safety and health concerns led to a final decision that would keep all of us safe as we work collectively to lower the rate...
    A state-by-state map shows millions of American schoolchildren will be back in the classroom when the 2020-2021 academic year commences.  Almost all students have been learning from home since the coronavirus pandemic forced schools to shutter across the country in mid-March.  But many are set to reopen their doors from next month,  despite the fact that cases of COVID-19 continue to surge.  On Thursday, the country shattered its daily record for COVID-19 cases with more than 77,000 new infections reported in just 24 hours. More than 3.5 million people across the country have contracted the contagious virus, and 141,00 have died.   President Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos have been pushing for a full reopening of schools across the country.  On Thursday, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters: 'When President Trump says open, he means open and full, kids being able to attend each and every day at their school. The science should not stand in the way of this.' However, while millions of students will be back in the classroom, most will only attend on a part-time basis.  An...
