    Utility tells state equipment might have caused deadly fire These are the worlds most historic restaurants MLS has postponed two Sunday matches after further positive COVID-19 tests There have been a whole lot of sports events rescheduled lately thanks to positive COVID-19 tests, and two of the most recent come in Major League Soccer. Saturday night, MLS announced that they had postponed both the Orlando City-Columbus Crew and FC Dallas-Minnesota United matches: © Provided by The Comeback The MLS postponements for Oct. 11. The Orlando City vs. Columbus Crew match was postponed following two confirmed cases of COVID-19 among the Columbus Crew staff. Orlando City confirmed a positive test result among its first team roster earlier on Saturday. MLS also postponed the FC Dallas vs. Minnesota United match following two confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 among the Minnesota United player pool. The league said that both matches were postponed to ensure the health and safety of all players and staff and to allow for further testing and evaluation prior to travel and competition.

    The 15 best sports movie sequels Walmart and Instacart Team Up To Fight Amazon and 16 More Big Business Moves in 2020 Barstool Sports CEO Erika Nardini has been named to the WWE board of directors The news that Barstool Sports CEO Erika Nardini (seen above during a Fox Business interview in 2018) has been named to WWE’s board, first reported by Sportico’s Eben Novy-Williams Monday afternoon, is interesting on a couple of levels. For one thing, it’s a further indication of WWE continuing to bring in prominent people; their board has quite a few notable names, including former Six Flags CFO Jeffrey Speed and former Sony Pictures Entertainment president of home entertainment Man Jit Singh, and they just hired prominent agent Nick Khan (CAA’s former co-head of television) in August as WWE president and chief revenue officer. (Khan filled a role that was surprisingly vacated in January when the company dismissed co-presidents George Barrios and Michelle Wilson.) © Provided by Awful Announcing Erika Nardini on Fox Business in July 2018. Beyond that, though, it’s interesting to see Nardini...
    BDT Stage has been around since 1977— pretty much the heyday of the dinner theater movement in the United States. In March, the company opened its production of Ragtime; the day after opening night, BDT was forced to shut it down again over COVID-19. This was heartbreaking, says artistic director Michael J. Duran: “It had been very difficult bringing a cast together, and when we did, they were incredible. We had a beautiful, poignant show. I was so proud of it and the entire team. We all hoped that we would be able to get back up after a short time. We had no idea that we would still be doing this seven months later. “This has all been extremely difficult to navigate. How do we stay creative, keep our people working and keep everyone safe — employees and the public? We're faced with tough restrictions by the state and the City of Boulder. We are allowed 50 percent capacity or fifty people, whichever is less. So that limits us to 50 people. Singers have to be 25 feet from...
    WITH the way modern football is at the moment, one of the most important positions on the pitch is the defensive midfielder. In the case of Everton, it is a role they have finally filled with the right player in Allan from Napoli - and it has revolutionised the rest of the team. 2Allan has revitalised Everton with his natural ability in the CDM roleCredit: Reuters 2Danny Higginbotham reckons Allan is the perfect man to help Everton thrive During previous seasons, especially following the loss of Idrissa Gueye, the Toffees attempted to fit square pegs in round holes to solve their deep-lying midfielder issues. Gylfi Sigurdsson, Tom Davies and Andre Gomez all tried to fill in. All the while, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Fabian Delph have both suffered with injuries. It was a position made up of players who were not natural defensive midfielders. They would still attempt to be on the attack, to dictate play with the ball and push higher up the pitch. That made it difficult for the back four, who would be caught between dropping deep and...
    VIDEO2:1302:13Chinese government bonds are an attractive proposition: JPMorgan Private BankSquawk Box Asia SINGAPORE — The Chinese yuan strengthened sharply against the U.S. dollar this week, following gains seen in recent months as the country's economy recovers and the greenback weakens. The offshore yuan has jumped more than 1% since last Friday, from levels above 6.83 to as much as 6.74 on Friday. The currency hit its strongest level against the dollar since May 2019. The onshore yuan also gained more than 1% over the same period. Overall, both the onshore and the offshore yuan have spiked more than 5% against the greenback since May. Analysts say recent strength in the yuan is due to a weakening dollar, which has slumped significantly this year, as well as China's economic recovery after the worst of the coronavirus hit. In fact, there's more room for the currency to gain against the greenback, they say. "As the dollar has entered this dollar depreciation, this weaker dollar environment, the (yuan) has somewhat lagged," said JPMorgan Private Bank's Alex Wolf. "When we're looking at the (yuan), we actually haven't seen...
    Despite his history as a centrist, Joe Biden has moved further to the left than President Barack Obama and previous Democrats when it comes to his spending policies, economists say. This has occurred, they say, not only because the Democratic base is increasingly progressive but also because of the extraordinary challenges posed by the coronavirus crisis. “Biden is presenting himself as temperamentally moderate, which is why he’s pushing back on some of the protests,” said Brian Riedl, an economist with the Manhattan Institute, a conservative think tank. “But his actual policy proposals are far to the left, like much of the Democratic Party.” Riedl said that the last three Democratic presidential nominees, Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry, each proposed increases in spending between approximately $1 to $2 trillion during their campaigns. Biden, however, has proposed $11 trillion worth of spending by Riedl’s estimate, which Riedl says is a “humongous” increase compared to previous Democratic candidates. During the primaries, Biden promised not to “demonize” the rich and said that “nothing would fundamentally change,” if he were to be...
    With the presidential election less than two months away, former Donald Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci — who briefly served as White House Communications director in the Trump administration in 2017 but is now a blistering critic of the president — is predicting that more Trump officials resign and speak out against Trump in the weeks to come. Scaramucci, during a CNN appearance on Wednesday morning, September 9, said he had “first-hand” knowledge of these resignations. The 56-year-old Scaramucci told “New Day” hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman, “I’ll make a prediction on the show: there will be people inside the administration that will denounce what is going on and resign prior to Election Day. And so, this stuff is happening, guys. The question is: is it going to move the needle or not? And I believe that it is moving the needle. And I believe that under the surface of this, the American people are exhausted by the president.” Camerota and Berman, however, expressed skepticism. And Berman asked Scaramucci, “Do you know that? Have you spoken to people inside the...

    VIDEO6:4706:47Tech stocks to add to your shopping list during the pullbackTrading Nation It's not time to buy tech ... yet. That's what two traders said Tuesday as technology stocks continued their sell-off from the prior week, with the Nasdaq Composite index falling more than 4%. Though the S&P 500 technology sector is still up almost 23% year to date, last Thursday's trading session was its worst in over five months. "I already own some of the big ones — Apple, AMD, Salesforce, Nvidia — but we were trimming them on the way up and I'm not dying to buy any of these names just yet," Mark Tepper, the president and CEO of Strategic Wealth Partners, told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Tuesday. "I don't want to put any more new cash into any of them right now because I do think this correction has further to go." The S&P tech sector has fallen nearly 11% since Sept. 2. Corrections are typically defined as declines of 10% or greater in a given asset or index. Out of the larger-cap stocks Tepper owns, his favorite was...
    Trucks at work in the copper mine 'La Escondida' in ChileJorge Mu-Oz | AFP | Getty Images Copper prices have experienced a remarkable resurgence since the late March crash, hitting two-year highs last week, and Goldman Sachs believes the rally has further to run. Often seen as a bellwether for the global economy, copper prices plunged at the end of March as the coronavirus pandemic spread throughout the world and sent markets tumbling. However, the spot price has recovered rapidly from $2.1195 a pound on the New York Mercantile Exchange on March 23 to $2.9580 a pound on Friday. It is up 5.87% for the year and 9% for the quarter, initially buoyed by a sharp pickup in Chinese demand. "While this contrasts sharply with the c.5% average decline in share prices for the Big 4 diversified miners (Anglo, BHP, Glencore, RIO), we remain bullish on the sector on a global economic recovery, led by China," Goldman Sachs metals and mining analysts said in a note Friday. Goldman Executive Director Jack O'Brien and his team attributed their optimism in part...
    Greenland’s ice sheet may have melted further than the point of return, with the ice very likely to vanish no issue how immediately the globe lessens weather-warming emissions, research indicates. Ohio Condition University scientists examined 234 glaciers in the Arctic territory for 34 several years till 2018. They identified that once-a-year snowfall was no lengthier ample to replenish glaciers of the snow and ice becoming shed to summertime melting, which is now resulting in international seas to rise about a millimetre on ordinary for each year.Graphic: The melting was unveiled in satellite pictures.

    A new poll released Sunday morning shows that 61 per cent of Americans believe President Donald Trump has done more to divide the country than his two predecessors. In the ABC News/Washington Post poll, 35 per cent of 1,006 respondents said Trump has united the country during his presidency, while 61 per cent say he has further divided the nation. The same poll, taken July 12-15, also revealed that among registered voters, of which there were 845 surveyed in the poll, 55 per cent would vote for Biden, the presumed Democratic nominee, if the election were held today.  Forty per cent of registered voters said they would cast their ballot for the president. Trump retains support from 90 per cent of registered voters who voted for him in 2016, according to the poll – but he loses 8 per cent of them to Biden. Biden, on the other hand, takes 95 per cent of those who supported loser Hillary Clinton in 2016, but 3 per cent of those voters flipped to Trump. Nearly two-thirds, or 61 per cent, of...
    Oliver Stone said “everything has become too fragile” in Hollywood as he called out Tinsel Town as “too sensitive” of a place right now to create a film. “The problem is in Hollywood,” the 73-year-old film director shared with the New York Times in a piece published Monday. “It’s just so expensive — the marketing.”  (RELATED: Ed Asner Asks Chris Jansing For Kiss During Weinstein Interview) Oliver Stone is not a fan of the current state of Hollywood and is in no hurry to work with a studio on a mainstream film as he says the town has gone “mad.” https://t.co/ve2ai5OSAN — The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) July 13, 2020 “Everything has become too fragile, too sensitive,” he added. “Hollywood now — you can’t make a film without a Covid adviser. You can’t make a film without a sensitivity counselor. It’s ridiculous.” When pressed further on what he meant by “ridiculous” the “Any Given Sunday” director said “it’s not a world” he’s interested in running “out into.” “The Academy changes its mind every five, 10, two months about what it’s trying...
    Breaking News — Barcelona, ​​Jun 25 . .- Mediapro presented this Thursday AI Proclips, a technological product intended to automate and personalize the summaries of sporting events thanks to artificial intelligence (AI). Its first client is LaLiga, which is already using it now. “With this product, the processing time for the entire match is seven minutes and the summary point of view can be customized,” explained Mari Carmen Fernández, director of Innovation and New Business at Mediapro. Thus, for example, the ‘broadcaster’ (the company that has the television rights to the competition) may customize the summary so that it only focuses on the plays of Wu Lei, so that the plays of the Argentineans have precedence over the others or so that no free kicks appear. Once the ‘broadcaster’ has chosen the desired characteristics, AIProclips will automatically summarize it for you. This will allow the media to easily adapt to their markets and audiences. “This tool is unique in the world and will be offered to competition organizers and licensees. We have started with LaLiga, but the purpose is...
    The coronavirus induced lockdown in England should not be further lifted until the government’s contact-tracing system proves to be “robust and effective,” the World Health Organization’s regional European director Hans Kluge said. In an interview with the Guardian newspaper, Kluge also cautioned that Britain remained in a “very active phase of the pandemic” and warned against rushing into reopening the economy. Britain said on Sunday it was reviewing its two-metre (6.5-foot) social distancing rule ahead of the next stage of lockdown easing planned for July 4. England’s test and trace system identified nearly 32,000 people who had been in close contact with someone who had tested positive for COVID-19 in its first week of operation, but the government admitted that the system is not perfect and would need to do better. “Contact tracing is key especially as the UK starts to relax the social and physical distancing measures. There has to be a robust track-and-trace system in place of operation,” Kluge told the Guardian. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government, which has faced heavy criticism for its handling of the pandemic,...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Chairman Jerome Powell faces a challenging task Wednesday: He’ll need to make a convincing case that the Federal Reserve is committed to using all its tools to bolster an economy gripped by recession — without making any policy changes to show it. At a virtual news conference after the Fed’s latest policy meeting, Powell will likely drive home the message that the economy remains in need of extraordinary help despite recent despite glimmers of a possible recovery, including a government report Friday that employers surprisingly added jobs in May. Should Powell fail to reassure investors that the Fed will keep borrowing costs ultra-low, longer-term rates could rise and further diminish an economy that has been depressed by business shutdowns forced by the coronavirus. If he succeeds, though, investors will likely draw confidence from the belief that the Fed will keep using all its tools and preserve the array of emergency lending programs it has unveiled. “The stakes are actually really high given how little we expect out of” the meeting, said Ernie Tedeschi, policy economist at...

    WASHINGTON (CNN)In the last 25 years, partisanship in America has become more closely tied to demographics, according to a new analysis of survey data since 1994 from the Pew Research Center. Should current trends continue, the country's shifting makeup over time points to an electorate that may continue to favor the Democratic Party in overall numbers, even as the Republican Party has made up some ground lost in the early days of Donald Trump's presidency.Throughout 2018 and 2019, 33% of registered voters considered themselves Democrats, 29% Republicans and 34% saw themselves as independents. Republicans have gained three points since 2017, while Democratic affiliation has held steady. When partisans are combined with independents who lean toward each party, about half of voters (49%) are either self-identified Democrats or Democratic-leaners, while slightly fewer, 44%, identify with or lean toward the Republican Party. Democrats have outweighed Republicans among the nation's registered voters, according to Pew's data, since 2004. But a portrait of the demographic, geographic and religious breakdowns within each party reveals changes within America's two major parties that could drive them further...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump pledged a crackdown of the protests that arose from the police killing of George Floyd, sparking concerns from some Democrats and Republicans that his response to the crisis further deepens the divide in a country already unnerved by a pandemic, distressed economy and racial unrest. Mayors from at least 25 cities issued curfews for Saturday night, as police responded with rubber bullets, tear gas and arrests to disperse occasionally violent crowds. In the nation's capital, more than 1,000 demonstrators hit the streets, including some who threw bricks and dispersed only early Sunday morning when the Secret Service began to fire tear gas. The President tweeted on Saturday that if protesters breached the White House's fence, they would "have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen." And he called on Democratic officials to "get MUCH tougher" or the federal government "will step in and do what has to be done, and that includes using the unlimited power of our Military and many arrests." Elected officials on both sides of the...
