The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired reliever Corey Knebel from the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday for a player to be named or cash. Coming off their first World Series championship since 1988, the Dodgers also agreed with reliever Scott Alexander on a one-year deal for $1 million, avoiding arbitration with the left-hander before Wednesday night's deadline for teams to offer 2021 contracts to their unsigned players. The 29-year-old Knebel was an All-Star in 2017 and a key part of the Brewers' bullpen during their run to the 2018 NL Championship Series.

“Tomorrow marks one month since the election, and the president has spent that entire time throwing a loud, pants-filling tantrum,” Stephen Colbert said at the top of his Late Show monologue Wednesday night. “If we don’t change presidents soon, he’s going to get a rash.”He was talking about the insane 46-minute video Donald Trump posted online earlier in the day in which he continued refusing to accept the reality that he lost to Joe Biden. “Today around 4 o’clock eastern crazy time, the president posted a conspiracy theory-filled rant on Facebook,” Colbert told viewers. “No press, no questions. not even the mediating lower third graphics of cable news. Just uncut, blue flake crazy packed into a straw and blown right into the brainstem of the kamikaze MAGA dead-enders.”Trump began by declaring, “This may be the most important speech I’ve ever made.”In response, Colbert said he may have misread one word. “It may be the most impotent speech you’ve ever made,” he joked. “Because it was just another rambling mass of lies that lasted a full 46 minutes. My big complaint? He should have done this a week ago, not because he said anything worth hearing, but at least the people who cancelled a big family Thanksgiving could have pretended they were still eating with their racist uncle.”Later, the host noted that Trump showed a “surprising amount of self-awareness,” explaining, “the president even knew how poorly his stupidity would be received.”‘Best in Show’ Star John Michael Higgins: I Wouldn’t Play a Gay Man Again Today“Even what I’m saying now will be demeaned and disparaged, but that’s OK,” Trump acknowledged at one point.“Well, as long as it’s OK…” Colbert said, taking a deep breath. “You’re a petty, angry man desperate for validation you will never receive and have never deserved. And in 50 days, you’ll be out of the White House, without the protections of executive power and no court is going to uphold you pardoning yourself. Plus, you’re ugly and your mother dresses you funny.”“And here’s the thing,” he added. “All the contested states are now certified. It’s over!”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day. Sign up now!Daily Beast Membership: Beast Inside goes deeper on the stories that matter to you. Learn more.
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) -- Miller Kopp scored 18 points and Chase Audige scored 16 and Northwestern opened its season by beating Arkansas-Pine Bluff 92-49 on Wednesday.
(Bloomberg) -- The Trump administration banned cotton imports from a military-linked Chinese firm it accuses of relying on “slave labor,” as the U.S. seeks to ramp up economic pressure on Beijing over its treatment of Muslim ethnic minority groups.The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said Wednesday that customs officers at American ports would impound “shipments containing cotton and cotton products originating” from the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps., one of China’s largest producers. The organization -- set up by the Communist Party more than 60 years ago to help develop the far western region of Xinjiang -- was previously hit by Treasury Department sanctions barring it from transactions with American companies and citizens.“The human rights abuses taking place at the hand of the Chinese Communist government will not be tolerated by President Trump and the American people,” DHS Acting Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said in a statement. U.S. businesses shouldn’t be allowed to “profit from slave labor” he said, adding that “‘Made in China’ is not just a country of origin, it is a warning label.”The Trump administration and other critics of Beijing have targeted cotton from China, which supplies about one-third of U.S. apparel, as a way to increase pressure over the mass detention of Turkic-speaking ethnic Uighurs. Xinjiang produces more than 80% of China’s cotton, much of it from XPCC.Who Are the Uighurs and Why Is China Locking Them Up?: QuickTakeThe U.S.’s action could potentially affect clothing exports from other Asian producers like Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Cambodia, if they contain cotton from China, according to Sheng Lu, an associate professor in the Department of Fashion & Apparel Studies at the University of Delaware. “Cotton made by XPCC are used by garment factories throughout China and exported to other apparel producing countries,” he said. The U.S. imported about $11 billion in cotton textile and apparel products from China in 2019, but depending on how U.S. Customs enforces this order, it could target a much broader array of products, Lu said. The order also sends a strong signal that the issue of forced labor in Xinjiang is not over yet and there could be other actions in the future, he said.Detention FacilitiesThe Trump administration has already sanctioned scores of Chinese companies and Xinjiang party chief Chen Quanguo over their ties to a security state that has detained between tens of thousands and “upwards of 1 million” Uighurs, according to a United Nations’ assessment. China has continued to expand its detention facilities in the region, the Australian Strategic Policy Institute said in September report based on satellite imagery, government documents, media reports and witness accounts.China defends the camps as “vocational education centers” intended to “purge ideological diseases,” including terrorism and religious extremism. Authorities dispute outside population estimates of the camps, without providing figures of their own. The facilities were built after a spate of deadly attacks involving Uighurs in 2013 and 2014, prompting President Xi Jinping to order authorities to “strike first” against Islamist extremism.Still, the latest measure stopped short of banning all cotton from Xinjiang, as Cuccinelli told Bloomberg TV in September the U.S. was considering. The decision whether to take further action may be left to the President-elect Joe Biden, who has labeled China’s policies regarding the Uighurs as “genocide” and called for an international effort to make a united stand against the campaign.(Updates with comment from analyst in fifth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

President-elect Joe Biden is facing escalating pressure from competing factions within his own party as he finalizes his choice for secretary of defense. Black leaders have encouraged the incoming president to select an African American to diversify what has so far been a largely white prospective Cabinet, while others are pushing him to appoint a woman to lead the Department of Defense for the first time. At the same time, a growing collection of progressive groups is opposing the leading female contender, Michèle Flournoy, citing concerns about her record and private-sector associations.

President-elect Joe Biden swung behind a bipartisan COVID-19 relief effort and his top Capitol Hill allies cut their demands for a $2 trillion-plus measure by more than half in hopes of breaking a monthslong logjam and delivering much-sought aid as the tempestuous congressional session speeds to a close. Biden said Wednesday the developing aid package "wouldn’t be the answer, but it would be the immediate help for a lot of things.” Biden's remarks followed an announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer of New York in support of an almost $1 trillion approach as the “basis” for discussions.
