VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 13, 2020 / By mid-April, roughly a month after the World Health Organization had officially declared COVID19 a global pandemic, Amazon reportedly hired an additional 175,000 employees to help deliver on a surging demand of online orders. This employment boom indicates that, unlike other industries, the eCommerce industry did not experience economic pain as a result of the pandemic, but quite the opposite.

This increase in online ordering created both a packaging graveyard bursting with delivery materials and a massive influx in carbon emissions resulting from transporting goods from point A to B. TreeEra, an industry-leading Canadian based organization focused on sustainability through community-funded tree planting, is providing a simple solution to this complicated problem with their recently launched program 1:Tree. 1:Tree allows businesses and individuals the option and opportunity to plant a tree with each good or service sold, offsetting the

Wilmington, Delaware – He’s not on the ballot for mayor in Wilmington, but Joe Biden’s hometown is getting some attention as a result of his presidential candidacy.

Amid the 19 general election campaign trips to seven battleground states, Biden has spent his down time in Wilmington, a fitting backdrop for the man who ditched Washington most nights and took Amtrak home from his Senate job to be with family.

If elected, Biden would be the first president from Delaware. And Wilmington — population 70,000 — would join the list of obscure presidential homes that includes Jimmy Carter’s Plains, Georgia; George W. Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas; and President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.  
 
“The city’s stature has been enhanced by Joe’s running,” Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki told CBS News. “It is still a big deal for people to see the potential next president of the United States, it

(Reuters) – Cineworld <CINE.L>, the world’s second-biggest cinema chain, will close its UK and U.S. movie theaters this week, leaving as many as 45,000 workers unemployed for the foreseeable future as it fights to survive a coronavirus collapse in film-making and cinema-going.

The company said the reluctance of studios to go ahead with major releases such as the new James Bond film had left it no choice but to close all 536 Regal theaters in the U.S. and its 127 Cineworld and Picturehouse theaters in the UK from Oct. 8.

Its statement follows a grim evaluation by ratings agency S&P’s of rival AMC Entertainment <AMC.N> on Friday which gave the U.S.-based company six months unless it is able to raise more capital.

Cineworld’s announcement on Monday detailed the scale of job losses from its move, which affects thousands of ancillary staff including cleaners and

In D.C., officials stressed the importance of caution but also of allowing economic activity to resume as the Walter E. Washington Convention Center reopened for the first time in about six months.

The facility was among the first venues in the District to shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic. The closure in early March was symbolic of sweeping changes to city life ahead of other restrictions that followed.

The city now hopes the convention center will serve as an example of how key spaces in the nation’s capital can begin to reopen safely — with a new focus on virtual events while adhering to strict health and safety guidelines.

Gregory O’Dell, president and chief executive of Events D.C., which manages the convention center, said his organization has seen a significant financial blow. In May, the city opened a hospital overflow area in the convention center to prepare for a
