* Yellen reportedly to be announced by Biden on Tuesday * Economist, 74, seeks federal spending to tackle Covid slumpJanet Yellen, the first woman to chair the US Federal Reserve, is reportedly set to add another first, becoming the first female treasury secretary.The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the 74-year-old economist will be named as president-elect Joe Biden’s choice on Tuesday.Yellen will take the job during one of the most trying economic times in modern history. US unemployment hit a postwar record in April, in the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, and while the jobs situation has improved, the recovery has slowed in recent months as rates of infection have increased.Millions remain out of work, and women and people of color have been hit disproportionately hard by the downturn.Yellen has recently advocated for more federal spending from Congress to tackle the economic devastation caused by the virus.“There is a huge amount of suffering out there. The economy needs the spending,” Yellen said in a September interview.If appointed, Yellen will not only be the first female Fed chair and treasury secretary, but the first person to have headed both organizations and the White House Council of Economic Advisers.More details soon …
State employee spotted mysterious metal structure amid red rocks while counting bighorn sheep A mysterious monolith has been discovered in a remote part of Utah, after being spotted by state employees counting sheep from a helicopter.The structure, estimated at between 10ft and 12ft high (about 3 metres), appeared to be planted in the ground. It was made from some sort of metal, its shine in sharp contrast to the enormous red rocks which surrounded it.Utah’s highway patrol shared images of both the sheep and the monolith.The helicopter pilot, Bret Hutchings, told local news channel KSLTV: “That’s been about the strangest thing that I’ve come across out there in all my years of flying.”Hutchings was flying for the Utah department of public safety, which was helping wildlife resource officers count bighorn sheep in the south of the state.“One of the biologists is the one who spotted it and we just happened to fly directly over the top of it,” Hutchings said. “He was like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, turn around, turn around!’ And I was like, ‘What?’ And he’s like, ‘There’s this thing back there – we’ve got to go look at it!’”Hutchings said the object looked manmade and appeared to have been firmly planted in the ground, not dropped from the sky.“I’m assuming it’s some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big 2001: A Space Odyssey fan,” Hutchings said.The monolith and its setting resembled a famous scene from Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film, in which a group of apes encounter a giant slab.> The @UtahDPS helicopter was assisting the @UtahDWR in counting bighorn sheep in remote southern Utah Wednesday when the crew encountered something entirely 'out of this world'...@KSL5TV KSLTV Utah > > Photojournalist: @Photog_Steve5 pic.twitter.com/f8P0fayDIS> > — Andrew Adams (@AndrewAdamsKSL) November 21, 2020After spotting the monolith, the helicopter crew landed to take a closer look. Video from the ground, obtained by KLTV, showed crew members climbing on each other’s shoulders to reach the top of the monolith.Hutchings said. “We were kind of joking around that if one of us suddenly disappears, then the rest of us make a run for it.”Bighorn sheep live in some of Utah’s most rugged and remote areas and survive in hostile climate conditions. Fearing amateur explorers might get stuck in the wilderness while seeking out the monolith, the flight crew have not revealed its exact location.Some observers compared the monolith to the plank sculptures by artist John McCracken, who lived in New Mexico and New York until his death in 2011. McCracken’s gallerist, David Zwirner, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

(Bloomberg) -- In the pandemic’s first months, the gulf between Republican and Democratic governors was vast. Allied with President Donald Trump, most Republicans refused to impose basic public-health restrictions such as mask-wearing, while Democrats closed huge swaths of their states’ economies.Today, many find themselves implementing similar, somewhat half-hearted,measures -- a bipartisan weariness aimed less at deep change than easing the strain on medical systems and buying time until a vaccine arrives.In California, Governor Gavin Newsom has imposed an almost-statewide curfew of 10 p.m., a move that closes bars and restaurants early but stops far short of the broad shutdowns ordered in March. The Democrat said data show he needs to stop an increase in virus-related hospitalizations.North Dakota’s Republican governor, Doug Burgum, reversed course after months of opposition to mandatory mask-wearing and imposed a statewide order for facial coverings. He also closed restaurants for in-person dining at 10 p.m., put steeper capacity restrictions on events, and paused winter sports.In announcing the restrictions, Burgum said he, too, was taking a data-driven approach to address a surge in hospitalizations: “Our situation has changed, and we must change with it.”Republicans FreedTrump’s election loss Nov. 3 gave Republicans a modicum of freedom, and the pandemic’s rampage through red states has moved them to act. Democrats have expended much of their political capital, and their constituents may not tolerate more inconvenience and isolation.“They have two crises that they have to balance, and they’re looking for that middle ground,” said Joel Fox, a Republican campaign strategist and newsletter editor in Los Angeles. “One is the economy, the other is the pandemic.”In theory, governors of both parties have room to enact tougher, more effective restrictions, but they face opposition and economic consequences, said Janet Baseman, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington in Seattle.More Republican-led states, including New Hampshire and Iowa, have introduced mandatory mask wearing. Others are leaning in that direction. In Wyoming, Governor Mark Gordon responded to a spike in cases by restricting the size of gatherings, with exemptions for faith-related meetings. He refrained from ordering business closings, but has suggested a mask order could be next.“There will be changes,” said Gordon, who faces hospitals nearing capacity. “They will be more restrictive.”‘Up to You’Utah Governor Gary Herbert, another Republican, cut the Thanksgiving turkey in half: relaxing restrictions on multifamily gatherings while telling residents it wasn’t a good idea to invite guests.“What you do in the confines of your own home is going to be up to you,” Herbert said Thursday as the state was breaking daily records for infections and deaths.Still, battles continue. Texas Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, has gone to court to prevent local officials from imposing stricter precautions, a development Austin Mayor Steve Adler, a Democrat, called “unfortunate.” If Adler could, he said, he would impose limits on most businesses lower than the state’s 75% capacity rule and perhaps set tighter controls on gatherings.On Friday, four Arizona mayors called on Republican Governor Doug Ducey to take stronger actions to curtail rising cases. The most important measure, they said, is passing a statewide mask mandate to supplement existing local requirements.Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, a Democrat, criticized Ducey for agreeing that masks protect people but nonetheless declining to issue a mandate. “You can’t say you believe in it and not implement the policy,” Gallego said. “It’s like winking and introducing uncertainty.”In North Carolina, Governor Roy Cooper, a Democrat, on Monday extended restrictions as the positivity rate reached 7%. His order limits indoor gatherings to 10 people, closes indoor bar service, and restricts occupancy for retail stores, restaurants and other public businesses. Twenty counties are now at critical levels of virus spread.“We are in danger,” Cooper said. “Hospitals and health-care workers are strained.”Mark Ghaly, California’s health and human services secretary, has defended the state’s overnight curfew as a way to prevent the need for later, harsher measures. It also aims to protect hospitals from a sudden flood of Covid patients.“We want to make sure we protect that hospital capacity, so those who need care can get it,” Ghaly said.Failed CurfewsOther medical experts, including William Hanage, an associate professor of epidemiology at Harvard University, said partial measures like curfews have often failed in countries such as Israel and the Netherlands. Broader restrictions are necessary, he said, particularly on gatherings involving young people.State and federal governments then need to provide financial aid to the unemployed and businesses forced to close. “I feel the pain of the people hit economically,” Hanage said. “Those people deserve to be helped.”What remains noticeably absent is a robust federal response, he said. Preoccupied with trying to change the election’s outcome, Trump hasn’t implemented new policies. President-elect Joe Biden, who promised in the campaign that his response would be tougher, has ruled out national lockdowns.“Every region, every area, every community can be different,” Biden said Thursday. “So there’s no circumstance that I can see which would require a total national shutdown.”Vivek Murthy, a former U.S. surgeon general who’s one of Biden’s top three advisers on the virus, said that based on what the nation has learned about Covid-19 since the spring, the preferred approach to fighting it is “a dial that we turn up and down, depending on severity.”That has left some governors, including Rhode Island’s Gina Raimondo, taking more dramatic steps. She’s closing bowling alleys, movie theaters, casinos and other places people gather indoors on Nov. 30. The Democrat said the two-week “pause” was aimed at reducing the spread and preventing harsher restrictions at Christmas.“I really had hoped to avoid this, because I know the financial pain that’s going on in Rhode Island,” she said. “But I’m in a world of all bad choices, and I’m trying to pick the least bad of the options.”(Updates with North Carolina governor’s comments in 15th 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.

“Joey Electric,” “Louie Sheep,” “Tony Meatballs” and a dozen other operatives of a Philadelphia mob crime family were indicted last week on charges including racketeering conspiracy, illegal gambling, extortion and drug trafficking.A superseding indictment unsealed today reveals how members and associates of the Sicilian Mafia organization La Cosa Nostra, ages 33 to 81, worked to “reclaim territory in Atlantic City by extorting local bookmakers and loansharks” and distributed cocaine, oxycodone, heroin and fentanyl and other illegal drugs.According to federal prosecutors, the mob also conspired to kidnap or murder a drug dealer who sold members fake methamphetamine. The purpose of the abduction plot was “to protect the reputation of the Philadelphia LCN,” the indictment says.Trumpworld’s Insane New Claim: Mafia Rigged the Vote for JoeThroughout 2016 and 2017, LCN members allegedly collected debts from loans that had annual interest rates as high as 156 percent to 400 percent. In one case, 70-year-old defendant Joseph Malone directed an unindicted co-conspirator to attack a victim to collect a loan-sharking debt, specifically ordering the stooge to “go over there with a baseball bat and hit” the unnamed borrower, the indictment states.And, the indictment adds, alleged mobster Victor “Big Vic” DeLuca, 56, “made implicit threats” to another unidentified borrower “about what would happen if he failed to repay” the loan with 400-percent interest.Prosecutors also describe how underboss Steven Mazzone, capo or “captain” Domenic Grande, and Salvatore Mazzone participated in a “making ceremony” in August 2015, when “several new soldiers” showed up to a home in South Philly to be initiated into the mob. “As part of a making ceremony, a soldier swears allegiance to LCN over and above all other interests and obligations, including his biological family,” the indictment says. “He swears a vow of secrecy, agreeing not to divulge LCN business to non-members, or even to acknowledge the organization’’s existence.“He also agrees to commit violence on behalf of LCN if necessary,” the filing adds. “By rule, a made member of LCN must be male and of 100% Italian ancestry.”As part of the seven-count indictment, 10 men are charged with racketeering conspiracy, including: Malone, DeLuca, Steven “Stevie” Mazzone, 56; Salvatore “Sonny” Mazzone, 55; Grande, a 41-year-old with sobriquets including “Mr. Hopkins” and “Dom14”; Joseph “Joey Electric” Servidio, 60; Louis “Louie Sheep” Barretta, 56; Kenneth “Kenny” Arabia, 67; Daniel Castelli, 67, also known as “Cozzy” and “Butch”; and 81-year-old Carl Chianese.Steven Mazzone, Grande, Malone, Barretta, and 72-year-old Anthony Gifoli (“Tony Meatballs”) are charged with conducting an illegal gambling business.Mazzone is also accused of conspiracy to make extortionate extensions of credit and conspiracy to commit Hobbs Act extortion alongside multiple other defendants for each charge. Grande, and several other men, also face a charge of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.The original indictment—filed under seal in January 2019 in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania—charged Arabia, Castelli, Daniel Malatesta, 75, and Daniel Bucceroni, 66, with conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Arabia and Bucceroni were charged with a single count of cocaine distribution.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip? Send it to The Daily Beast hereGet our top stories in your inbox every day.
