Joe Biden’s campaign has a total of $466 million to spend on advertising and other campaign needs, which is $141 million more than President Trump’s campaign. 

The Trump campaign has a total of $325 million in its war chest, spokesman Tim Murtaugh said.

Meanwhile, Biden ended August with nearly $181 million on hand compared to Trump’s $121 million.

Biden is also spending more than Trump. In August, Biden outspent Trump $130 million to $61 million. The television and video streaming industry felt the shift when the Trump campaign went dark in several key states, Politico reported.

Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien defended his more reserved approach and said he’s carefully trying to manage the campaign budget. 

In August, the Trump campaign significantly reduced its video advertising and even went silent in key swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio and Minnesota. Biden ended up outspending Trump 3-to-1 on video ads

The Black-owned Baltimore barbershop now requires infrared temperature checks and masks.

The barbershop also requires clients to answer a coronavirus questionnaire found on a health care kiosk.

“It kind of gives us a baseline idea of the individual and possibly where they’ve been and who they’ve come in contact with,” Kennard Perry, a senior partner and barber at the Nile Style Barbershop, told CNN.

The results of the survey and the infrared temperature check determine whether clients get haircuts or not.

And if those clients do not end up in the barber chair, they will not leave empty-handed. Nile Style makes sure that the client

Under criticism from business leaders, Mayor Bill de Blasio encouraged private employers Tuesday to begin bringing their workforces back to Manhattan offices.

De Blasio said the city is working on a plan to require its own hundreds of thousands of employees to return to work in person, though it will be phased in gradually to make sure the coronavirus stays under control.


Under the state’s reopening plan, offices have been allowed to operate at 50 percent of their legal capacity since June. Yet the vast majority of office workers have stayed away: A survey by business groups found that only 8 percent had returned by mid-August, and just over a quarter expected to be back by the beginning of the year.

“It’s time to start

Tesla shares slid 9% on Thursday, building on the stock’s recent losses after the company’s largest outside shareholder reduced its position, and after the automaker said it would raise up to $5 billion in a new share offering.

With Thursday’s decline, the stock is more than 18% below Monday’s close, a day when the name surged following its stock split.

Tesla shares rose to a new intraday all-time high of $502.49 on Tuesday. The stock then ended Tuesday’s session 4.67% lower as Tesla announced that it would raise up to $5 billion through stock offerings “from time to time” and “at-the-market” prices.

Then on Wednesday, Baillie Gifford, Tesla’s largest outside shareholder said it reduced its position in the company from around 6.3% to less than 5%, according to FactSet. The firm said that it intends to remain a long-term shareholder in

Erika James knew that her performance as a leader would be scrutinised when she was appointed dean of the Wharton School in February. She is the first female head of the world’s oldest business school, founded at the University of Pennsylvania in 1881. She is also its first African-American dean.

By the time she took up the post in July, however, the business education world faced two new challenges — the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and a focus on racial justice following the Black Lives Matter protests.

When we talk over video shortly after her official start at Wharton, Ms James is very upbeat. “Actually, it has felt — and I don’t want this to be misinterpreted — invigorating,” she says about her first few days in the job.

As she points out, she’s well prepared for this moment: her academic roots lie in the research and teaching

This weekend’s state sales tax holiday is crucial to retailers hoping to draw customers back into their stores, said Jon Hurst, president of the Retailers Association of Massachusetts.

“This is going to be a step-by-step process, getting consumers back into the stores, making sure they understand they can be safe,” Hurst said in a phone interview Saturday.

Slammed by the pandemic that forced most businesses to close for months, Massachusetts retailers have been slowly reopening over the summer, while implementing measures meant to slow the spread of COVID-19, under a phased restart of the state’s economy.

Expectations on sales are lower this year compared to previous sales tax holidays, Hurst said. But he anticipates this will be the best weekend for retailers since February when the “twin crises” of the coronavirus pandemic and economic downturn began, he said.

The state’s annual sales tax holiday allows customers to buy products, such

Critics of the United Kingdom government – and indeed, some of its supporters – regularly accuse Boris Johnson and his team of being in permanent campaign mode. Perhaps that’s not surprising. Most of today’s front-line ministers were firmly in the leave camp during the referendum campaign and over the four fractious years that followed, they doubled down on their vision of a Britain maintaining an arms-length distance from the European Union. Given the strength of pro-remain feeling, pressing ahead with that vision required a considerable amount of no-holds-barred campaigning. Old habits die hard. Fast forward to August 2020, and with the transition period coming to an end, there is little sign that the government is paying any attention to the concerns that many businesses have over the possibility of a no-deal scenario that would see the U.K. transacting with
