Trump campaign accused of running fraudulent dinner contest - Business Insider

  • The Trump campaign spent between $79,000 to $100,000 on Facebook ads between August 3 and August 4 promoting a contest for a dinner with President Donald Trump on August 8 that many Americans could not legally attend because of COVID-19 restrictions, Judd Legum at Popular Information reported.
  • But New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently instituted restrictions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 that require travelers from 34 states to quarantine for 14 days after arriving in the state.
  • This would not leave enough time to arrive in New York and quarantine, so attending a dinner on Saturday with the president, or anyone for that matter, would be illegal.
  • In other words, it appears the Trump campaign advertised this contest to people in states with the knowledge they could not legally attend, but still solicited donations from them.

Here’s how cities can keep congestion reduced post-coronavirus

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted transport behavior, and lockdowns have shown how much healthier city life could be without clogged streets, deafening noise and polluted air.
  • According to the latest data from the AA, the traffic on Britain’s roads during the weeks in which lockdown measures were imposed was at a similar level to that seen in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
  • The intelligent use of navigation devices offers opportunities to reduce road congestion and traffic jams.
  • For example, traffic planners could also factor in environmental impacts such as CO2 emissions in their route recommendations.
  • At the same time, CO2 emissions will fall and the traffic flow can be distributed more evenly over the road network via route recommendations which drivers get in their cars automatically.
  • This combination of optimised traffic light control and intelligent route planning can reduce congestion by up to 40 percent.

3 negotiation tactics you can use right now to ask your manager for a raise - Business Insider

  • As a recession rocks the American economy, some workers may be wondering what this means for their long-awaited salary increase.
  • The Labor Department said last week that 45.7 million people filed for unemployment over a 13-week period, meaning that one in four American workers have lost a job during the pandemic.
  • Here are some of the strategies career experts said employees can use to negotiate for a higher salary during a recession.
  • "Even though asking for a raise might seem uncommon during an economic recession, given the amount of extra work many employees have on their plates, it opens up the opportunity for these workers to negotiate a raise or different perks," Cannata said.
  • For those who find themselves suddenly taking on the role of a more senior employee following layoffs, Cenedella said that it can be appropriate to bring up the topic of a raise.

COVID-19 disruptions could lead to surge in infectious disease deaths

  • A new modeling study suggests that disruptions to health services caused by COVID-19 could lead to an increase in HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria deaths.
  • A study published in Lancet Global Health modeled the impact of disruptions caused by COVID-19, such as increased demand on healthcare systems and reductions to disease control programs, in low- and middle-income countries.
  • The study estimates that deaths due to HIV, TB, and malaria could increase over the next 5 years as a result of COVID-19 and could, in the worst-case scenario, occur on a similar scale to the direct impact of the pandemic.
  • The researchers say that the disruptions caused by COVID-19 could, in the worst-case scenario, lead to a loss of life years (the expected number of years a person might have lived had they not died of a particular cause) on a similar scale to the direct impact of the pandemic itself.
