(Bloomberg) -- Exxon Mobil Corp. is about to incur the biggest writedown in its modern history as what was once an exemplar of American capitalist might shudders under the weight of debilitated energy markets.Exxon -- already hobbled by cratering crude prices, a global supply glut and a pandemic-driven collapse in fuel sales -- on Monday disclosed it will write down the value of North and South American natural gas fields by $17 billion to $20 billion. At the top end of that range, it would represent the industry’s steepest impairment since BP Plc’s 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill that killed 11 workers and fouled the sea for months. Meanwhile, capital spending will be drastically reduced through 2025.The announcement comes in the waning days of a grueling year for Chief Executive Officer Darren Woods, who’s taken the heretofore anathema steps of firing employees, curtailing retirement benefits and canceling ambitious growth projects. The former refinery manager has been forced to recast his seven-year, $210 billion blueprint for rejuvenating Exxon’s aging portfolio of crude and gas holdings.In addition to dropping vast swaths of gas assets from the development queue, Woods is capping capital spending at $25 billion a year through 2025, a $10 billion reduction from his pre-pandemic target.This year has been particularly bruising for America’s most-iconic oil explorer. Exxon lost money for three consecutive losses, an unprecedented streak, the shares dipped to an 18-year low and the company was ejected from the bosom of blue-chip stocks, the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Woods also plans to cut 15% of the company’s workforce by the end of next year.From being the largest company in the S&P 500 Index as recently as 2012, Exxon now ranks just inside the top 50 as energy lost its luster and technology giants grew. Chevron Corp. now has a larger market valuation than Exxon.No PivotUnlike its European peers, Exxon has so far chosen to stick with its $15 billion-a-year dividend and has increased borrowing in recent months to fund it and its other capital priorities. On an annualized basis, the dividend has been increased each year for almost four decades.Optimism that vaccines will soon restore global economic growth buoyed crude prices in recent weeks but the impact of the contagion on Big Oil is likely to be longlasting. With European giants Royal Dutch Shell Plc and BP accelerating the pivot to renewables and Exxon locking in drastic spending cuts, capital flows into big, traditional developments are expected to shrink in coming years.Cowen & Co. analyst Jason Gabelman detected a subtle shift in Exxon’s word choices that may herald a dramatic change in financial priorities. Whereas company executives touted Exxon’s “reliable and growing dividend” during the third-quarter earnings conference call, Monday’s statement only mentioned reliability, the analyst said in a note to clients.‘High-Grading’“Continued emphasis on high-grading the asset base -- through exploration, divestment and prioritization of advantaged development opportunities -- will improve earnings power and cash generation, and rebuild balance sheet capacity,” Woods said in the statement.Exxon has been warning shareholders since October that its gas assets were at risk of significant impairment. Previously, the energy titan’s largest writedown was for about $3.4 billion in 2016, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.Assets removed from Exxon’s development plans include so-called dry gas resources in Appalachia and the Rocky Mountains, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, as well as western Canada and Argentina, the company said. It will attempt to sell “less strategic” assets.The writedown stems from former CEO Rex Tillerson’s decision a decade ago to buy XTO Energy for $35 billion rather than spend years building an in-house shale business. At the time, the outlook for North American gas prices was bright because demand was rising faster than supply.Supply GlutInstead, fracking was a victim of its own success, unleashing so much gas that it overwhelmed demand and the infrastructure needed to handle it, resulting in a prolonged stretch of depressed prices.U.S. rival Chevron recorded an impairment of more than $5 billion on Appalachian gas a year ago, and recently agreed to sell those fields to EQT Corp. for about $735 million.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.
Normally, this time of year I’d be offering suggestions for something with which to charge the flowing bowl, so that its bounty, ladled out with cheer and kindly hospitality, would make the intolerable among your family and acquaintances tolerable and the tolerable truly delightful.There would be soft-focus anecdotes about Charles Dickens or some old English earl, Dutch “Mynheer” or not-so-very-proper Bostonian. There would be rum and port and a thick dusting of freshly grated nutmeg. It would be jolly—damned jolly.The New Rules For Holiday Eating & Drinking in 2020But this holiday season, with the specter of COVID-19 hanging over us all, the idea of gathering in close and cozy quarters with a gang of people who aren’t in my immediate household sends a rivulet of cold sweat down my back. And if I’m not going to do it, I’m certainly not going to cheerfully suggest others do.At the same time, our seasonal social rituals are important. I can easily understand why some people are saying “to hell with the coronavirus pandemic, we’re doing Christmas anyway,” even if I think it’s naïve and dangerous to them and everyone they’re going to come in contact with. Life is difficult enough in normal times. In hard times like these, it can be bleak indeed. What we as humans have to brace ourselves against that bleakness is each other.As the old saw goes, soldiers don’t fight for their countries, they fight for their fellow squad members. We need our squad members to get us through, whether that means Mom and Dad, aunts, cousins and such, or just—“just”—the usual crew of friends old and new that we’ve recruited over the years. We need to see them, touch them, talk to them. Relax with them. Put the load we’re carrying aside for a bit and share some laughs and reminiscences.In my household, anyway, we usually do that over a drink. Mixing someone a little glass of something delightful is a quick and very effective first manifestation of hospitality; a way of not just telling them, but showing them that they’re truly welcome and, at least for now, among their people.Fortunately, if we can’t physically be with our people, at least we can still mix them that drink; still show them at least that little bit of hospitality. Sure, we’ll have to do our toasting via Zoom, FaceTime, group texts, WhatsApp, etc. If the idea of that fills you with the same measure of joy it fills me with, which is less than a metric teaspoonful, at least know that with the help of a few empty bottles, some booze and a little planning in advance you can still extend that hospitality; still pour them that drink. It takes a little planning, but hey, you’ve got time these days. All you have to do is, at some point before you log on, drop off or send them a little bottled cocktail, one where everything is done and all your people have to do is pour.* * *Little Bottles of Delight* * *Bottled cocktails have a long and successful history that we absolutely don’t need to get into here. Suffice it to say that, just as modern bars have learned to make their drinks portable during the current pandemic, bars in the nineteenth century did the same as a matter of course for their customers who might want a cocktail at home—this was before the whole be-your-own-bartender idea took hold—or wherever else no bar was to be found. (Such places existed, although there weren’t many.) While these bottled cocktails couldn’t replicate the experience of standing at the carved mahogany bar while the bartender waltzes the ice around in his glass and then pours an amber stream from a great height into a tiny little cocktail glass with perfect accuracy, the cocktail itself didn’t know that: it was the same delicious potion, minus the show. And that’s what your people will be getting.* * *What You’ll Need* * *For bottled cocktails, you need bottles. I like to use 1-pint Mason jars, which hold enough for four standard drinks, fully diluted and with no need for stirring, shaking or any of that business. (When you mix drinks with ice, it’s the ice-melt that chills them and dilutes them enough to kill the burn. For these, you’re going to add the same amount of water and let your friends’ freezers do the chilling.)If you can’t get pint Mason jars, use what you can get—old wine bottles, cleaned and with the labels soaked off and glass 12-oz soda bottles are also good, although you’ll have to adjust your proportions. For those last, you’ll also need corks.You’ll also need labels. They don’t have to be fancy: you can hand-write them and tape them on with clear packing tape. But your people will need a little information on what they’re drinking, how many the bottle serves, and how to store the drink, prepare it and serve it. We’ll get into the details below.* * *The Drinks* * *There are two kinds of bottled cocktail: the kind that’s shelf-stable, and the kind that comes with the fuse lit; that has to stay refrigerated and even then will only keep for a couple of days. The options for each are endless, but since the sponsor for this particular post is Jefferson’s Bourbon, I’m going to stick to whiskey drinks, which is certainly no hardship.Let’s start with a shelf-stable one, the Manhattan Club’s version of the Manhattan. Seeing as the Manhattan was most likely invented at the Manhattan Club (a New York political and social club), sometime around 1880, this version carries a certain authority. With equal parts whiskey—we’ll go with the Jefferson’s Reserve, which is 45 percent alcohol, a good mixing strength—and vermouth, it’s also softer and a little less rambunctious than the standard version, and hence maybe a bit better adapted for the all (legal) ages crew you get at holiday time.This drink will keep indefinitely, which means that it can be sent or dropped off considerably in advance of consumption. You might want to add a lemon with each pint, for peels (they should be cut in vertical strips with a vegetable peeler, an excellent thing to demonstrate over Zoom).Here’s how you make one:* * *Manhattan Club Manhattan (1)* * * INGREDIENTS * 1.5 oz Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon * 1.5 oz Italian red vermouth * 3 dashes Orange bitters * Glass: Cocktail * Garnish: Lemon peel DIRECTIONSAdd all of the ingredients to a mixing glass and fill with cracked ice. Stir, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist a swatch of thin-cut lemon peel over the top.And here’s how you make a pint of them, which should be enough for four regular-sized cocktails.* * *Manhattan Club Manhattan (4)* * * INGREDIENTS * 6 oz Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon * 6 oz Italian red vermouth * 12 dashes Orange bitters * 4 oz Bottled water DIRECTIONSAdd all of the ingredients to a 1-pint Mason jar. Seal the jar and label it.Here’s how I’d label this:The Manhattan Club’s ManhattanAs served at the place that invented it, New York, 1882.Bourbon, Italian vermouth and orange bitters.Contains four drinks.To serve: Put this bottle in the freezer for 45 minutes and then pour into four chilled cocktail glasses. If possible, twist a strip of lemon peel over the top.This bottle can be stored at room temperature.With big hugs from [your name here].(If your people are a little more adventurous and boozy—we don’t judge here at the Daily Beast—and you have access to an exceptionally well-stocked liquor store, a great, unusual variation is the Racquet Club Special, as served by Harry, head bartender of the Detroit Racquet Club, in 1934: for one, it’s 2 oz Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon to .5 oz each Italian vermouth and Kronan Swedish Punsch, a cane spirit-based liqueur that brings a little complexity to the proceedings, and a couple of dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters. For four, that’s 8 oz Jeffferson’s to 2 oz each vermouth and Swedish Punsch, 8 dashes Peychaud’s and 4 oz water. Assemble the same way.)Now, some people will find an all-booze drink like the Manhattan to be a bit much, even if you’ve mixed it up in one of its mellowest incarnations. For them, there’s the Ward Eight, a lovely turn-of-the-20th-century twist on the Whiskey Sour out of Boston, named after the political ward that coincided with the city’s North End. There are as many recipes for this drink as there were old-time bartenders in Boston. My favorite, though, is the one (contributed by one of those old-timers) that slips a little amontillado sherry into the mix, which makes it taste richer and far more intriguing.Unfortunately, sours like this have a short shelf-life before the citrus juice starts to mutate in strange and un-tasty ways. Ideally, this should be made the morning of the day it’s going to be consumed. The day before is acceptable. Beyond that there’s a good chance the lemon juice will go off (it won’t hurt anyone, but it will taste nasty). In either case, it has to be kept refrigerated, so plan accordingly.* * *Ward Eight (1)* * * INGREDIENTS * 2 oz Jefferson’s Very Small Batch Bourbon * .5 oz Amontillado sherry * .5 oz Fresh lemon juice * .25 oz Fresh orange juice * Scant .5 oz Grenadine (the regular commercial stuff is fine here) * Club soda * Glass: 8-oz Goblet DIRECTIONSAdd all of the ingredients, except the club soda, to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a stemmed goblet. Add 1 ice cube and a splash of sparkling water.And for four:* * *Ward Eight (4)* * * INGREDIENTS * 7 oz Jefferson’s Very Small Batch Bourbon * 1.75 oz Amontillado sherry * 1.75 oz Fresh lemon juice * 1 oz Fresh orange juice * 1.5 oz Grenadine * 3 oz Bottled water DIRECTIONSAdd all of the ingredients to a 1-pint Mason jar. Seal the jar, label it and refrigerate it.When delivering this, add a small bottle of club soda per pint bottle of Ward Eight. That, too, should be refrigerated, of course.And the label (adjust to suit, naturally):The Ward EightThe Boston classic, created to celebrate a local election win in that city’s eighth ward, ca. 1900.Bourbon, sherry, lemon and orange juices and a touch of grenadine.Contains four drinks.To serve: Put this bottle in a freezer for 45 minutes and then pour into four white wine glasses, each with an ice cube in it.

What a year to be making a film about the United States Postal Service.I’d like to say I planned this whole thing—directing a movie about a little ~~~~ known USPS program called Operation Santa in a year when they became the center of a political maelstrom. But I had no idea what 2020 would bring when we shot the film in the four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas last year.Dear Santa centers on the USPS, an institution that seemed at points this year to hold our democracy in the balance. As 2020 got underway and we were in full throttle with post-production, we would read the headlines about the political machinations driving events at the USPS, with President Trump confessing to withholding federal aid for the USPS in order to sabotage mail-in voting, but our focus was on something more durable and timeless: the hundreds of thousands of letters that get sent directly to Santa each year and what the postal service does with them.‘The Postman’ Kevin Costner Thinks Trump’s Post Office Meddling Is ‘Criminal’Yes, there are all the trappings of your favorite family Christmas film in Dear Santa… cute kids, the emotional wants and needs of people, and lots of magic and whimsy to go around. But at the heart of this film are the dozens of USPS workers who spend their busiest time of the year not only doing their jobs, but also helping families in need. This program has lived under the radar for 108 years. Focusing on it this year seems extra poignant, as many of the USPS employees have gone the extra mile for us in the pandemic while the organization is being used as a political football.USPS employees have been on the frontlines of the pandemic since its onset, resulting in more than 10,000 coronavirus cases and 80 deaths within the organization. It was not lost on me and my crew that while we were editing our film in the safety of our homes, the USPS employees that so graciously let us into their world over the holidays were both risking their health and fighting just to do their jobs. They were politicized at every turn and suffering because of it. Still, every day they worked to get us our mail, our prescriptions, and our endless Amazon packages as we quietly worked on Dear Santa.Throughout the last hundred years that Operation Santa has been active our nation has seen many dark times. I would say 2020 rivals any of these dark periods. One in eight families don’t have enough to eat. We have more than 3.5 million people out of work. We have more than 260,000 people dead from COVID-19. That’s 260,000 families in mourning right now. We have millions of people struggling to celebrate this holiday season. Compared to last year, more letters are coming into Santa this time around.As part of making this film, USPS gave me unfettered access to Operation Santa. We were given access to read the thousands of letters that came into the USPS and then were able to follow the most compelling ones.As far as how the program works, once the letters addressed to Santa come in to the USPS they are funneled to a special team that handles them. Santa “approved” this program back in 1912, telling Postmaster General Frank Hitchcock that he was authorized to allow postal employees and citizens to help him respond to letters. This meeting more than 100 years ago became what is known today as Operation Santa.Today many cities have lead elves (who are of course approved by Santa). These lead elves help all those who want to take part and adopt letters. In our film, you will meet the lead elves in New York City, Chicago, Chico, California, and Pearce, Arizona.Several years ago Santa decided to go digital due to the volume of letters. The mailroom elves, who you meet in the film, digitize the letters so that anyone anywhere can adopt a letter. This modernization of the program will help out greatly this year while we are all at home because of COVID-19. Once the letters go live, anyone can read and adopt the Operation Santa letters right from their couch.Reading the letters that come in to Santa was a profound experience for me. It is a very personal look into the psyche of our country, with many letters from young people, but also older people too. We can read about their hopes and dreams as well as their wants and needs. It really hammers home how many people are in need in America.The mission of the program has always been to provide the public with the chance to be an elf and help children and families to have a magical holiday when otherwise they might not. Helping Santa answer all of his letters might seem like a small gesture, but this is a pay-it-forward program that is propelled by many postal employees—in their off-hours—who earn modest salaries and still give back. As one of the elves in our film says, “It’s not what you have that matters but what you do with what you have.” USPS workers are and have been making little gestures in the name of Christmas cheer over the years that add up to a humongous operation and show of goodwill that is showcased in our life-affirming film.Some might say that Dear Santa is a puff piece for the USPS that is conveniently timed when they needed it most. But I say this little-known story has been right under our noses for decades and no one had asked for permission to document it until 2018, when I sent an email to their press office for access.To kick off the production of our film I was invited to USPS headquarters in Washington, D.C., last fall. I received a download of all things Operation Santa and USPS history. It was there that our hosts told us about the simple mission of their organization, “To bind the nation.” I have to admit I thought it was a little hokey at the time. A year later and after all that we have been through as a country, I one hundred percent feel their mission and have watched firsthand, as we all have, that in good times and hard times USPS delivers. In a year that has broken so much of our country in half, everyday when I walk around my neighborhood and see their trucks still chugging along, I know it hasn’t broken one of our country’s most important institutions—the USPS.Dear Santa will be released Dec. 4 nationwide anywhere that you rent or buy movies. Watch the film and then become an elf. We promise this is a restorative and empowering way to end a year that has been so difficult for so many of us.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Summary: From 1990 onward, there were numerous reports of “attack-of-angle” sensors (i.e., sensors that resemble weather vanes) being damaged by bird strikes, ground equipment and jet way collisions. In 2008, an A320 demonstration flight crashed on the French coast, killing all seven on board. Moisture inside two of the plane’s three angle-of-attack vanes froze. This relatively high incidence number makes it more than justifiable to question Boeing’s decision to enable the sensors on the Max model to become empowered beyond merely warning pilots of potential stalls and to instead automatically force a plane’s nose down. This question of empowerment of where a sensor sits in terms of the decision tree becomes all the more jarring if the likelihood of autonomous vehicle proliferation is considered. When it comes to public safety, lessons learned from one application must quickly be imparted to all related use cases. Sensors are instruments that identify environmental changes and then provide the corresponding output for events.They sense physical inputs such as light, heat, motion, moisture, pressure or any other object, and react by producing a display output or transmitting information for further processing in electronic form. They identify main applications in flood and water level monitoring systems, environmental monitoring, traffic monitoring and control, artificial lighting, remote device monitoring and equipment fault diagnostics, and precision farming and animal tracking. Sensors have become indispensable in many industries because they provide vital information about temperature, position, chemistry, pressure, force and load, and flow and level, which can affect products, processes and systems.As technological advances in electronic control systems increase sensor efficiency, users are calling for advances in sensor accuracy, reliability, response time, robustness, miniaturization and communication capability. In order to keep track of parameters, smartphones consist of sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and temperature sensor, and provide a centralized system for automated monitoring. Advances in micromachining have made it possible to produce micron-sized devices on a silicon wafer, an attractive process for large-volume applications using mass production processes. This technology is particularly important in the sensor market, as silicon has been shown to be a very good material for use in sensors. In the near future, the manufacturing costs and power consumption of wireless sensors will decrease, and wireless sensors will be fully integrated into wireless networks, replacing hardwired configurations.A broad spectrum of wireless communications hardware and software is already available, and the communication industry is the largest consumer of this technology, primarily in mobile phones and base stations. Fiber-optic sensors will also play roles in networks and communications. Magnetic field sensors will play roles in magnetic storage media and customer terminals. Photodetectors for local area networks (LANs) will also see growth in regional, municipal and longdistance network applications.

President Donald Trump may only have seven weeks left in office, but he’s given his top advisers the green light to batter the Iranian regime—anything that doesn’t hazard a full-on war before Joe Biden is inaugurated.According to multiple U.S. officials familiar with the matter, in recent weeks Trump has taken a more passive role in personally overseeing Iran policy for the critical final months until Inauguration Day. One White House official last week described Trump as mostly “checked out” on this major foreign policy issue, having become consumed by his bumbling legal effort to steal the 2020 election amid the coronavirus pandemic, as well as by other his pet grievances of the moment.But Trump has given some of his most hawkish administration officials, particularly his top diplomat, Mike Pompeo, carte blanche to squeeze and punish the Islamic Republic as aggressively as they wish in the coming weeks. All Trump asks is that they don’t risk “start[ing] World War III,” as the president has specifically put it in several private conversations with Pompeo and others, according to two senior administration officials.That has left a host of options at the outgoing administration’s disposal—among them, a suffocating sanctions regime and a studied silence in the face of the assassination of Iranian nationals. Two officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the administration is set to announce new sanctions on regime-linked companies and individuals in the coming weeks to solidify a years-long effort to paralyze Tehran’s economy.Iran: Israel Killed Top Nuclear Scientist With Remote-Control Machine GunKnowledgeable sources say those actions are designed to help fulfill various Trump officials’ long-brewing desire to make it more difficult for the Democratic president-elect to rekindle negotiations with Tehran and re-enter a nuclear deal. And it’s a scenario for which Biden lieutenants and allies have long prepared, having already factored into their Iran strategy that current U.S. officials would do nearly everything they could to undermine a revival of Obama-era relations between the adversarial nations.Trump administration officials who spoke to The Daily Beast frequently point to Pompeo and Elliott Abrams, special representative for Iran, as the leaders of the administration’s last-ditch attempt at pummeling the regime.Secretary Pompeo has been particularly forward leaning in the administration’s efforts to inflict damage on the Iranian government. In a recent trip to the Middle East, Pompeo met with leaders from Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain on ways all three countries could work together on countering the Islamic Republic. The trip followed on the heels of an announcement by the State Department that it had recently approved a massive sale of F-35 jets to the UAE. The deal has been widely viewed as a way to get Dubai to cooperate with Jerusalem on deterring Iran. And on Friday, Pompeo announced additional Iran-related sanctions, this time targeting Chinese and Russian entities for transferring sensitive technology and items to Iran’s missile program.Both Pompeo and Abrams, officials say, are supportive of harsh measures, including the quiet backing of covert actions carried out by other actors. One other senior administration official pointed to Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel as being intimately involved in the administration’s clandestine strategy as it relates to Iran.The president has repeatedly told his advisers that one of his priorities is to avoid a confrontation with Iran in which American military personnel would die. But Trump is comfortable letting Israel take the lead in targeting, or even slaying, Iranian regime figures in the closing weeks of his presidency, officials said. That includes Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the country’s top nuclear weapons scientist, who was killed Nov. 27 while traveling in a convoy in the northern part of the country.Two senior Trump administration officials said Israel was behind the attack, confirming global suspicions. One of those same officials, while they did not detail the level of involvement from the U.S., noted that America’s intelligence agencies often share information with Israel on Iran-related matters.“There’s obviously a close working relationship between Mossad chief Yossi Cohen and Haspel,” said Mark Dubowitz, the CEO of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a right leaning think tank that’s advised the Trump administration on Iran.Some of the president’s confidants have urged him not to draw too much attention to the killing. The administration has chosen to remain mostly tight-lipped regarding the scientist’s death. A source close to Trump said they had counseled the president in the past few days to avoid gratuitously tweeting about the assassination. Not only would it be a “bad look,” according to this source, it would likely undermine the administration’s public position of keeping the operation at arm’s length, if not farther away.The two senior administration officials said discussions about taking more active measures to limit Biden’s administration on negotiating a new deal with Iran ramped up this summer and coincided with several of Israel’s covert operations, including the killing of al Qaeda deputy leader Abu Muhammed in Iran, and Israel’s planting of a bomb in one of Iran’s centrifuge facilities.“The Israelis understand that between now and Jan. 20 they will need to inflict maximum damage on the regime,” Dubowitz said.The Trump strategy over the next few weeks is clear, one of the senior administration officials said: Continue to use sanctions as a deterrence tool while providing intelligence to regional allies such as Israel that have a mutual goal of damaging the Iranian regime.That plan isn’t so different from the one the Trump administration has put into action over the past four years. Since Trump took office in 2017, a cohort of top officials, advisers, and external advocacy groups have helped craft and implement a “maximum pressure” campaign on Iran that has relied primarily on the implementation of more than 1,000 sanctions on regime-linked officials and companies while also covertly targeting Tehran’s assets overseas.The only difference now, officials say, is that the administration not only wants to punish Iran, it also wants to pen in President-elect Biden.Individuals involved in the crafting of the Trump administration’s Iran policy believe the maximum pressure campaign will limit Biden’s ability to get back on track with Tehran, namely because some of the sanctions may be difficult to lift, especially those focused on human-rights and terrorism. Dubowitz and Trump administration officials familiar with Iranian sanctions said multinational corporations may be so risk averse to doing business with Iran now, following thousands of financial designations, that even if Biden lifts sanctions they will not engage in normal trade relations with Tehran.Individuals familiar with Team Biden’s thinking say the president-elect has a clear strategy for dealing with Iran and sanctions come January. That plan rests heavily on Biden’s desire to return back to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—the nuclear deal negotiated during the Obama administration—if Iran comes back into compliance.How Trump Twisted Iran Intel to Manufacture the ‘Four Embassies’ Threat“If Iran takes the bait, which is clearly the intention behind [the Farikhzadeh assassination], then it probably makes it impossible to return to the JCPOA and diplomacy,” said Jarrett Blanc, the former coordinator for Iran nuclear implementation in the Obama State Department. “If Iran doesn’t take the bait… I don’t know that it really changes the choices that confront the Biden team or Iran in January.”Any negotiations between a Biden administration and Iran would include conversations about the lifting of some sanctions, two individuals familiar with the Biden team’s thinking on Iran said. But those sanctions would likely only be lifted if and when Tehran complies with a deal.“Iran says it is prepared to come back in compliance and reverse some of the decisions it’s made. And the U.S. says it would lift some of the sanctions. [There’s] no legal bar to reverse them. Many of them were imposed for political reasons,” said one former senior Obama administration official. “It’s likely going to be a two-step approach for Biden—getting back in and then perhaps renegotiating a different, better deal.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

The 35-year-old Mercedes driver claimed a record-equalling seventh world drivers' title in Turkey last month
On Monday, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem buried her grandmother, who was among 13 to die over a two-week period at a top-rated nursing home swept by COVID-19.The 98-year-old grandmother, Aldys Arnold, is said by Noem’s office to have tested negative for the virus, though no cause of death was given. The other 12 of the 13 deaths between Nov. 14 and Nov. 28 at the Estelline Nursing Home are described by the administrator, Mike Ward, as “COVID-related.”“All but one,” Ward told The Daily Beast.But one less is still a dozen COVID deaths in a short period in one small facility. The number makes clear the lunacy of Noem’s downplaying of the pandemic and her continued refusal to impose a statewide mask mandate.“I’ve always taken COVID19 very seriously, but South Dakota trusted our citizens to exercise their personal responsibility to keep themselves and their loved-ones safe,” Noem tweeted back in July.But the report from the Estelline Nursing Home, in a town of the same name, made clear that South Dakotans are anything but safe. Ward confirmed that along with the deaths, all but two of the surviving 38 residents and at least 16 of the staff had tested positive.The two most recent deaths were on Saturday and helped raise the statewide daily total to 54, a record for South Dakota, which has fewer than 1 million people.Noem remained fixated on livelihoods rather than lives and chose to tweet that day about the importance of supporting small businesses by shopping.> Remember, today is SmallBusinessSaturday These businesses are the lifeblood of so many South Dakota communities. Please support them today and every day! shopsmall> > — Governor Kristi Noem (@govkristinoem) November 28, 2020None of this is to say that Noem is at all cold-blooded when the lives include one of her own clan. She tweeted a moving tribute to Arnold on Nov. 22.“We lost my grandma today but she is finally where she has wanted to be for quite some time… with Jesus. And grandpa and my dad and Ryan… and so many loved ones… I remember when my dad died, she said to me with tears rolling down her cheeks, ‘children should never die before their parents’... I had never seen my grandma cry before.”Noem’s father, Aldys Arnold’s son, was killed in a 1994 accident involving farm machinery. Ryan Arnold, Aldys’ grandson and Noem’s cousin, died in 2010 of surgical complications after donating part of his liver to his brother.“She was the toughest woman I have ever known,” Noem tweeted. “She spoke plainly, but full of wisdom. She could outwork any man and did so on a regular basis. She was honest... (we all have funny stories of when she was maybe a little TOO honest). And she left our family a legacy of faith and love for the Lord. We love you grandma. Thank you for the honor of being your granddaughter.”Noem here made clear she is intimately acquainted with personal loss. But as of Monday night, Noem had not tweeted a word about the 12 who had died along with Arnold during that fearful fortnight.For Noem to have mentioned the dozen other dead would have raised the specter of the virus that killed them even as she was continuing to claim that she had brought it under control by invoking personal responsibility rather than mandating a vital precaution—a face mask—that is as simple and unimposing as wearing a seatbelt.Noem Ditches COVID Crisis at Home for D.C. Meetings With Lame-Duck TrumpersAnd nobody could rightly blame the nursing home itself for failing to protect its residents as best it could. State and federal inspectors had consistently given the home their highest ratings, and its record is unblemished by so much as a single serious violation.The family of one of the dead, 90-year-old Ardyce Apland, described Estelline to The Daily Beast as “excellent,” reporting that the home took extensive precautions against COVID-19 long before anybody there tested positive. Apland’s son-in-law, David Herrold, said visitors were required to wear masks and met with a resident in a separate room partitioned by Plexiglas and plastic sheeting. Visitors and the residents were kept separated. But through the plastic, Herrold could see that Apland was continuing to thrive since moving into the home in June.“She was gaining weight, looking good,” he recalled.Then, as best as Ward can tell, an asymptomatic staffer brought the virus into the facility from the outside, presumably having caught it in the realm where masks are not required and where Noem has allowed people to gather in crowds as large as a quarter-million at a bike rally.“It’s everywhere,” Herrold said of the virusDespite all of the precautions, everywhere came to include the nursing home. Apland swiftly went from thriving to dead.“In 12 days,” Herrold said.That was on Nov. 22, the very day Noem’s grandmother died.Kristi Noem Seals Her Reputation as COVID’s Cartoon VillainApland was just the sort of person a governor of whatever politics should eulogize. She had raised three kids on a family farm and they would remember being awakened by the smell of the lefse—Norwegian flatbread—that she baked on the pancake griddle. She worked for years as a secretary at the local Lutheran church and sang in the choir for nearly six decades.But to speak of Apland’s life is to risk talk of her death and COVID-19. Noem continues to downplay the danger of the virus. And she had repeatedly discounted what seems to have been its most likely vector into the Estelline home.“The science of the virus tells us that it’s very, very difficult to spread the virus when you’re asymptomatic,” Noem said in a Fox TV interview in July.If the governor seems at least outwardly indifferent to the COVID-19 deaths, Ward, the administrator at Estelline, has clearly taken them to heart. And it is not just because his own mother is among the residents there who have tested positive. He seems as heartbroken over all the home’s COVID-19 victims as if they were family.“It’s awful,” he said on Monday. “I just don’t know what to say. It’s devastating.”He declined to comment on Noem’s views and policies.“We’re doing all we can to fight COVID and we don’t need to be fighting amongst ourselves,” he told The Daily Beast.He was able to honestly say that he and the staff at the Estelline home had done their wholehearted best. But they had no control over the realm outside.“We tried,” he said.And on a day when Noem was both burying her grandmother and celebrating her 49th birthday, her office was asked if she had anything to say about the dozen other dead.She said nothing at all.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Germany aims to have the first vulnerable people and caregivers vaccinated against the coronavirus in January, the health minister said on Tuesday, as the European Union's (EU) most populous country battles a second wave. German authorities are preparing special vaccination centres due to be ready in mid-December even though a vaccine will probably not be available by that time, Spahn added.
