President Donald Trump, Melania Trump and Chris Christie are among a running list of people who tested positive for COVID-19.

USA TODAY

Dear Mr. President,

Good Afternoon, I wanted to wish you, your family and staff well as you travel through your individual Covid 19 recoveries. Each person’s body and the medical care they have access to will determine how they experience this disease. Please be gentle with yourselves. Even the basic steroids can give you energy, stimulate hunger cause excessive sweating and “speediness” and make you feel better because the symptoms are gone. They can also cause the virus to replicate more rapidly.

I do not agree with some or even most of your political choices or policies, but my prayers for you all are that you all have as little

(Reuters) – Florida is one of the five best states in the nation in which to do business, according to a new survey. It’s also one of the five worst, according to the same survey, thanks to COVID-19.

Every three years, Development Counsellors International, an economic development marketing firm, surveys executives to rank business climates in the various U.S. states. For the first time since they began doing the survey in 1996, a single state landed in the top five in both categories: Florida. The DCI report was released on Tuesday.

“The rationale for Florida being on both the best and worst lists was entirely due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Julie Curtin, president of DCI’s economic development practice. “In our follow-up questions to corporate executives about the states they selected, the majority of the corporate executives who selected Florida said that the state’s handling of the

Your reaction to our story on poor customer service during the pandemic was loud and clear.

There is no reason for companies to be treating their customers so poorly. And now no excuse for forcing shoppers to wait weeks, or even months, for answers or money back.

Money Mail’s postbag was stuffed with letters from readers who had been brushed off and ignored in 2020 by big businesses that should, and could, do better.

The virus crisis has obviously hit firms hard, but why can some adapt while others continue to make excuses?

ROUND ROCK, Texas, October 13, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — The founder of an organization dedicated to getting abortion facility staffers out of the business has publicly advocated for Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

“On behalf of the more than 550 abortion clinic workers we have helped quit the abortion industry,” Abby Johnson wrote in a letter to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, “we urge you to support the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court.” Johnson is the founder and chief executive officer of And Then There Were None, “a registered nonprofit organization that exists to help abortion clinic workers leave the abortion industry,” according the group’s website. She spent many years working for Planned Parenthood, the United States’ largest abortion chain, and resigned in 2009 after using an ultrasound machine to assist at the abortion of 13-week-old baby.

Topline

President Trump’s Supreme Court pick Amy Coney Barrett on Tuesday defended signing and failing to initially disclose to the Senate Judiciary Committee two separate documents against Roe v. Wade which have invigorated fears among abortion supporters and criticism among Democrats.

Key Facts

Barrett faced a line of questioning from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) on the second day of confirmation hearings about why she didn’t disclose to the Senate her signing of a 2006 letter from the St. Joseph’s County Right to Life, an anti-abortion organization which advocates for the criminalization of in vitro fertilization (IVF), adjacent to an ad calling for an end to the “barbaric legacy” of Roe v. Wade.

Oct. 10 — To the Editor:

This summer, the City Council supported the creation of the Citizen Response Task Force. The task force brought us some great things: expanded on-street dining, PopUp NH, and regular updates on the local challenges of dealing with the COVID pandemic. It’s hard to imagine it being more successful and it’s safe to say that some businesses were saved because of the work the task force accomplished.

The challenges the task force faced are not going away; if anything, they will become tougher. Our restaurants and retailers may well face the toughest winter business conditions they have ever experienced. However, new emerging challenges are making themselves felt in the broader community; many of our citizens will soon, if not already, experience intensified needs around child care and schooling, financial stress, and eviction forbearance.

The Council now has an opportunity build upon its earlier support and
