The CEO of a Midwest hospital system is out of a job days after he sent a bizarre letter to employees in which he said he would not be wearing a mask because he believed he was immune after contracting COVID-19.Kelby Krabbenhoft, who is not a doctor, had headed Sanford Health since 1996. Just a a few weeks ago, after the announcement of a merger with Intermountain Health, he said he planned on staying another 18 months.But that all changed after his email—which was shocking enough that Sanford officials quickly put out a statement disavowing it. In the note, he said he had recovered from the coronavirus and was now immune for seven months—even though medical experts say it’s not clear how long immunity lasts.Even more disturbing, Krabbenhoft informed employees he would not be wearing a mask in the office, even though Sanford recommends masks and is headquartered in one of the nation’s worst hot spots.Hospital Lurches Away From CEO’s Vow That He Won’t Mask Up After COVID Infection“For me to wear a mask defies the efficacy and purpose of a mask and sends an untruthful message that I am susceptible to infection or could transmit it,” Krabbenhoft wrote.“I have no interest in using masks as a symbolic gesture,” he added “My team and I have a duty to express the truth and facts and reality and not feed the opposite.”He even seemed to question the wisdom of wearing masks outside the operating room.“The ‘on-again, off-again’ behavior of mask use by the general population violates every notion of serious infectious management that I was trained to adhere to, so some of this is absurd,” he wrote.A spokesman for the health-care system, which operates hundreds of rural hospitals and clinics and employs some 50,000 people, put out a damage control statement that the email only represented “personal opinions about the virus” and not company policy.That was followed up by a statement from other top Sanford executives who wrote: “We know that words matter, and words have power, and we regret that the message left many frustrated and disappointed.”On Tuesday evening came another announcement that Krabbenhoft and Sanford had agreed to part ways. The dethroned CEO told KELO-TV that the mask letter was not the impetus.“If there was ever a time for a guy, who’s been through what I’ve been through, this is a great time to say goodbye,” he said.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

The list of Week 13 college football games to be postponed or canceled due to COVID-19 continues to grow.
The dollar nursed losses on Wednesday as progress in developing a novel coronavirus vaccine and expectations for a fiscal boost from a new U.S. government triggered a shift of funds from the greenback to riskier assets. The U.S. currency teetered near a two-month low against the Australian dollar and a two-year low against the New Zealand dollar, both considered barometers of risk sentiment due to their close ties with the global commodities trade. The U.S. dollar's declines are likely to continue because a vaccine and the expected choice of former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen as U.S. President-elect Joe Biden's next Treasury secretary relieve two big uncertainties for investors.

Chinese ride-sharing company Didi began rolling out a service in Mexico this week to let female drivers select only other women as their passengers, a move aimed at encouraging their safety as the country confronts worsening gender violence. Called "Didi Mujer," or Didi Woman, the program is being piloted in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Tijuana, and Didi hopes if more women join the platform, passengers eventually will be able to exclusively choose female drivers. Didi's rival, Uber Technologies Inc, earlier this month also launched an option for female drivers in Mexico to select only women passengers, in line with a similar Uber program in Saudi Arabia.

If your love language is gift giving but spending money is not, then chances are you try to knock out the bulk of your holiday shopping during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Plenty of major retailers offer big sales throughout the week of Thanksgiving (and some for the entire month), but very few compare to the shopping extravaganza that Nordstrom puts on. The Nordstrom Black Friday Sale gives you the best of both worlds: luxury beauty and good deals. Brands like Smashbox, Esteé Lauder, MAC Cosmetics, and Tom Ford Beauty all get marked down, giving you access to much more affordable options. Just imagine the look on your friend's face when they think you got them a $40 YSL Beauty lipstick when really you only spent a little over $20. We have no doubt you'll find something for everyone on your list - including yourself. Now through Tuesday, Dec. 1, you can get up to 50 percent off skin-care, hair-care, fragrance, and makeup products. Considering there are 13 pages of deals to sort through, we took it upon ourselves to round up the best products to shop while they're on sale, ahead.
