    For years, Black Friday in-store sales have crept earlier and earlier into Thanksgiving Day itself, to the consternation of those who cherish the holiday as a day of rest, and the delight of holiday deal-seekers. Not so this year, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Major retailers including Walmart, Target and Best Buy will remain closed on Thanksgiving, joining with chains like Home Depot that have held fast to a tradition of shutting down for the holiday. When the store doors do fling open on Friday morning, retailers are taking extra precautions to prevent a huge crush of crowds that could speed the spread of the virus. Most retailers have offered rolling deals, both in-store and online, throughout November and beyond, in a bid to spread out the opportunities for deal seeking.  Stores are also offering curb-side pickup and speedy delivery. For those who still want to shop in-store, retailers will...

    Having been declared President-elect earlier this month despite the Trump campaign’s legal challenges, Joe Biden is now assembling a team of advisers and potential cabinet members. One policy area where he could radically change direction from the past four years is education. Democrats fiercely opposed the nomination of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos in early 2017 due to her criticism of public education and personal investments in charter schools, NBC News reported. Her tenure as secretary was equally opposed by Democrats as she tore up Obama-era guidelines and promoted school choice, according to NPR. Biden pledged early in his campaign to appoint a teacher as education secretary, CNN reported. “First thing I will do is make sure that the secretary of education is not Betsy DeVos, it is a teacher,” he said at a National Education Association forum in July 2019.

    TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) — Gov. Phil Murphy warned on “CBS This Morning” Tuesday that the new few months will be brutal for New Jersey. He has ordered tighter COVID-19 restrictions. That includes limits on gatherings at private homes. “Limiting indoor gatherings to ten persons and other steps we’ve taken, but we’re mostly pleading with people to do the right thing behind closed doors. Celebrate with just your immediate family and please don’t do it with grandma and grandpa,” Murphy said. Murphy said New Jersey is “better prepared” for COVID than when the pandemic started in the spring, but it’s up to all of us to stop the spread.

    Islanders continuing to get ready for next season despite the unknown By: Rob Taub November 24, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditWhile the start date for the upcoming NHL season remains in limbo, several Islanders are still preparing whenever they may receive the call for when things may begin. Over the weekend, defenseman Noah Dobson was seen on Instagram working out in the weight room as he prepares for his second season as a pro. It was also a nice reminder that the season will hopefully get here soon and that Dobson himself will be one of the key players for the Isles moving forward.

    Melinda Beck Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.“You’ll see the signs :),” Megan Bartlett had texted me as I looked for her house in Geneva, Illinois, a 20,000-person town about an hour west of Chicago. The note seemed vague to the point of useless until I arrived. In a maze of massive greige colonials, Bartlett’s stuck out: It was the only one bedecked with campaign signs for various local Democratic candidates. It was a Sunday morning in October 2018, and I was reporting on Rep. Lauren Underwood, a nurse turned Obamacare expert waging an underdog bid to unseat the district’s Republican representative. Bartlett, a 34-year-old music teacher, had been described to me as “the organizing brain and communications expert” of the grassroots supporting Underwood’s bid. When I entered Bartlett’s home, I...
    The backlash is coming. It already seems clear that the first major political and cultural eruption of the Biden years will be a roiling populist backlash against the next round of COVID-19 lockdowns and other restrictions on ordinary life. We saw this sentiment play out in sporadic anti-lockdown demonstrations last spring, and it has driven ongoing resistance to masks. But it is, in all likelihood, about to reach a entirely new level — fueled by exhaustion with the virus, infuriating displays of elite hypocrisy and the shattered credibility of the public-health establishment. The ascension of Joe Biden will add force to the reaction. It is an iron law of American politics that whichever party doesn’t control the presidency will suspect the other of plotting to impose a tyranny, so the fear and loathing of COVID-19 restrictions, somewhat muted on the right while Donald Trump was president, will deepen and intensify....

    The Portland Trail Blazers were like knights in shining armor for Carmelo Anthony. After his failed stint with the Houston Rockets during the 2018-19 campaign, Anthony was absent from the NBA for a year. It looked like his career was over, but it was the Blazers who came to his rescue and gave him a chance. The perennially grateful Melo has now found a way to repay the franchise. According to Shams Charania from ‘The Athletic’, “Free agent Carmelo Anthony is finalizing a deal to re-sign with the Portland Trail Blazers, sources tell”.

    Beachgoers in California were astonished by the sight of a sea otter surfacing with a three-foot long horn shark in its grasp. The furry marine mammals are known to bring bottom-dwelling sea life above water to feed or just out of curiosity. However, sea otters dine of a variety of invertebrates, including sea urchins, crabs and starfish - sharks have never been confirmed to be on the menu. Although the sea otter's intentions are unclear, Sea Otter Savvy, which shared the images on Twitter, said 'While some nibbling may have occurred, the prey was not consumed.'

    VIDEO3:2003:20Hong Kong-Singapore travel bubble is an 'important first step' for the region: Tourism boardCapital Connection SINGAPORE — Hong Kong is hopeful its next "air travel bubble" could be with mainland China, the executive director of the city's tourism board has said. Dane Cheng told CNBC such plans would hinge on the success of the forthcoming Hong Kong-Singapore travel corridor. But he noted that adding a similar arrangement for quarantine-free travel around China's Greater Bay Area would be the logical next step for business and leisure travelers. "The next one for Hong Kong that we would like to see (would be) with the mainland, the Greater Bay Area," Cheng said Friday. The Greater Bay Area links several cities in Guangdong province with the special administrative territories of Hong Kong and Macao. "That would be a key border for us," he added, noting both proximity and common business and family ties.Rising Covid...

    (CNN)How could a majority of White women support President Donald Trump? That's what many organizers and activists found themselves asking after early exit polls suggesting Trump expanded, though by a small amount, his overall support among White women in this election.Fatima Goss Graves Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner After four long years of unprecedented political engagement that inspired everything from national marches to voter registration drives to Black Lives Matter lawn signs, how could as many as 55% of White women still support a President who had proved so harmful to them and the people of color many often claim to support -- leaving Black women, 90% of whom voted for Biden and Harris according to early data, to help save our democracy once again? This question is about so much more than this moment. It's about a problem much older than Trump -- and which demands from lawmakers and voters alike a...

Whats next for the Cubs following Theo Epsteins sudden departure? Theo Epstein shook up the baseball world Tuesday, announcing he would step down as Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations effective Friday. Epstein, 46, walks away one year before his Cubs contract was set to expire.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Tyler Goodson rushed for a career-high 142 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries, and Iowa’s defense clamped down hard on Minnesota for a 35-7 victory on Friday night that gave the Hawkeyes possession of the Floyd of Rosedale trophy for the sixth season. Jack Koerner and Riley Moss each picked off Tanner Morgan for the Gophers quarterback’s first two-interception game in two years, and Zach VanValkenburg had three of the team’s four sacks. Iowa’s defense has a streak of 11 straight games with at least one interception. The Hawkeyes (2-2) had to wait to hoist the 98-pound bronze pig until they reached the locker room for virus protocols, but their 16th win in the last 20 games against their border-state rival to the north was just as sweet. Minnesota’s Mohamed Ibrahim rushed for 144 yards on 33 attempts, but the junior tailback who entered the evening...

    (CNN)Here's a surprise (not). President Donald Trump has formed a political action committee that will be able to solicit and accept donations from an unlimited number of people and lavish it on preferred political allies -- not to mention fund his own political activity by underwriting travel, salaries, polling and other expenses.

    VIDEO2:2602:26Here's why the post-election spike could last for stocksExecutive Edge Market volatility to the downside may not be entirely behind us, as the last two days of trading in U.S. stocks and the Dow Jones Industrial Average just reminded investors, with a dip of more than 300 points on Thursday. But since the week of Election Day, and through the encouraging Pfizer coronavirus vaccine data released on Monday, stocks had surged. The Dow spiked by 10% over six days, and the S&P 500 Index just under 9% during the same bullish run that culminated in the coronavirus vaccine trial results. So is the selling just getting started, or will the stock momentum pick up again?  Market history says the answer is both No and Yes. For traders, more short-term volatility should be expected.

    By Brian Stetler | CNN The leaders of Fox News will never say this out loud, but they believe that their media empire is bigger than President Trump. And they have billions of reasons to think so: Billions of dollars in revenue along with millions of loyal viewers. Fox employees are confident that the Biden years will be prosperous for the network, and they’re not losing sleep over the prospect of “Trump TV,” according to numerous sources at the company. But some observers think they should be concerned. It is possible that the outgoing President could damage the Fox brand and peel away disillusioned viewers if he launches a media company of his own. It is possible that the right-wing media map, long controlled by Fox, is about to become balkanized. In the days since Fox and the other major networks called the election for President-elect Joe Biden, Trump has...

    For the uninitiated, “MPE” refers to “MIDI Polyphonic Expression” a specification jointly developed by a handful of companies including Roli, Apple, MOOG and more that allow for certain synths and instruments to send more detailed note data to sound generators like, well, Equator2. And perhaps most important, each note gets its own channel, which ultimately means you the player have more control over what each of those individual notes sound like. Long story short, MPE gives devices like the Seaboard a way to transmit more — and more detailed — note data to compatible software suite of your choice, and the end result? More natural, more expressive sounds. Building those kinds of sweeping, emotive aural landscapes should be at least a little easier in Equator2 — the company says it ships with the “largest library of MPE sounds in existence,” plus 42 multi-sampled instruments including far-flung acoustics like...
    Rail wagons for oil, fuel and liquefied gas cargo stand in sidings at Yanichkino railway station, close to the Gazprom Neft PJSC Moscow refinery in Moscow, Russia, on Monday, April 27, 2020.Andrey Rudakov | Bloomberg | Getty Images LONDON — The International Energy Agency (IEA) on Thursday cut its 2020 global oil demand forecast and said it does not expect the prospect of a coronavirus vaccine to significantly boost demand "until well into next year." In its latest closely-watched monthly report, the IEA said it now expects world oil demand to contract by 8.8 million barrels per day this year. That reflects a downward revision of 0.4 million barrels from last month's assessment. The Paris-based energy agency trimmed its near-term outlook on weak historical data and a resurgence of Covid-19 cases in Europe and the U.S. For 2021, the IEA said world oil demand growth will rise by 5.8 million...

    There was a time when having the league’s worst record would have triggered doom and gloom for Warriors fans. Now, it’s little more than a blip, an aberration easily explained by injuries. That is how much things have changed under Joe Lacob and Peter Guber, who on Thursday will celebrate their 10-year anniversary of owning the team. Warriors fans can raise a glass. “I want to win more championships,” Lacob told the Bay Area News Group in a recent interview. “We have the opportunity to be really good and competitive for 20 years.” Lacob’s bold proclamations and Guber’s penchant for forward-looking business strategies have been a hallmark of the Lacob-Guber era that includes three NBA championships, five straight trips to the Finals and a $1.2 billion arena in San Francisco. “The ability to think big and bold and, to a certain extent, do better than...

However, the NBA Finals proved that the Heat still have some work to do if they want to repeat as Eastern Conference champions and actually win the title next season. With about $27 million of cap space for what will be an extremely short offseason, here are five free agents they need to focus on signing.5.

    While many Americans celebrated Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election on Saturday, Donald Trump refused to acknowledge his defeat, crying out for “electoral fraud”. A denunciation joined by several close to the current president, even if others have asked him instead to concede victory to his rival. But the tenant of the White House would rather have chosen to listen to those who support his theory of a rigged election. He is said to have developed with his campaign team a series of actions to challenge the result of this election. It would thus provide large gatherings in several states, according to . and Axios. Trump’s goal would be to mobilize his supporters as much as possible at meetings similar to those he held during the campaign to show that his allegations of fraud, which he was unable to prove to be...
    The next-gen controller for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S hasn’t gotten the same level of attention as its Playstation counterpart — its improvements are less radical — but it’s still a refined version of what came before it. As usual, some people will prefer it simply because of its size and grip; other users will get on-board this year because of the updated ease-of-use features. Microsoft’s production of computers and Android devices mean the Xbox controller is compatible beyond the new console. It comes in three colors and includes a remodeled D-pad, bumper texture and casing, among other fresh components. The controller is priced $10 cheaper than the PlayStation 5 DualSense. MORE: What’s the difference between the two new Xbox systems? Like the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles, the controller hits the market on Nov. 10. Here’s an in-depth look at the next-gen controller, including...

She’d been waiting for this day for years, since she realized that under Massachusetts law she could pre-register to vote as long as she was 18 before Election Day 2020. She’d registered online weeks before her birthday, and now that she was a legal adult, her status as a voter was cemented. Early voting in Boston is limited, though my husband was able to go on...
    Social distancing and other measures put in place due to the coronavirus pandemic will trigger a spike in flu cases next winter, a study warns.  So-called non-pharmaceutical interventions – behavioural changes which curb the spread of disease – have been in force for much of 2020. They include wearing face masks and social distancing.  These measures have not only helped to break the chain of transmission for Covid-19, but have also slashed infection rates of other diseases.  As a result, seasonal influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) have infected a fifth fewer people in the United States in 2020 than in an average year, data shows, a.   However, researchers caution that this apparent bonus will have a knock-on impact in the coming years, because it increases the pool of susceptible people. The number of at-risk individuals will likely increase further, as masks and social distancing are expected to remain in place for several...
    CHICAGO — The number of people experiencing homelessness in Chicago is rising in 2020 as the city continues to struggle with coronavirus. In January, even before the pandemic, Chicago’s homeless population was already on the rise. The city’s Point In Time survey, a citywide effort to count the homeless population on a single night, found 5,390 people living on the streets or in shelters, a 2 percent increase over 2019. January’s count was the first time the city’s seen a year-over-year increase in the homeless population since 2015.  The count is mandated every two years by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, but the city performs the count every year. The data is used to inform policy decisions and is essential in demonstrating need when applying for grant funding. Lisa Morrison Butler, Commissioner of the Department of Family and Support Services, said she anticipates a rise in...
    A graphically pedestrian Japanese roleplaying game is perhaps not what many Xbox Series X owners were hoping for as their premier next-generation-exclusive launch title, but here we are with Yakuza: Like a Dragon. While it might not be much of a technical workout for Microsoft’s most powerful console, it’s a revolution for the series and, by some distance, the most substantial console exclusive in the Series X and S launch lineup. This is the eighth mainline Yakuza game, with Sega presumably ditching the series numbering in an attempt to gain a wider audience. (It’s still called Ryu ga Gotoku 7 in Japan, “Like a Dragon” being a direct translation of the Yakuza series’s Japanese name.) This game is a canonical sequel, with occasional recurring characters and references that fans will appreciate, but I wouldn’t worry about playing the previous seven if you don’t have the time. That’s because Like a...
    If the Bulls want to make the playoffs next season they need to nail the No. 4 pick in the draft. Here’s how Chicago should construct their big board.  The hiring of Billy Donovan should usher in a healthy new era of Bulls basketball. Of course, Chicago needs to upgrade their roster talent if they really want to be Eastern Conference playoff contenders next season. Drafting a potential star at No. 4 could catapult the Bulls up the conference standings. Avdija approaches the game much differently than Markkanen. He’s a tough, physical player who wants to mix it up on the interior. The intriguing aspect of Avdija’s game is that he also has the foot speed to guard smaller players out on the perimeter. He’s never going to stop speedy point guards in isolation, but he should be able to hold his own against powerful wings at the next level....

    Jenna Bush Hager got emotional as she recalled the tradition started by her grandfather George H.W. Bush of leaving a letter for the next president. “(My grandfather) started this tradition where the outgoing president would write a letter and leave it in the desk of the Oval Office so when the new president would come in the first day, he would open his desk and there it would be,” the host of the “Today with Hoda and Jenna” show shared.

    Joe Biden has pledged to tackle climate change – REUTERS/Brian Snyder/File Photo Climate change could prove the Government’s best in-road to the new Biden administration, and help dispel the incoming president’s impression that Boris Johnson is a Trump “clone”. While the Government squares up for a clash on post-Brexit trade talks, there are already moves to start coordinating to tackle what both leaders see as one of the greatest challenges society faces. Donald Trump may have sung the prime minister’s praises during his presidency, but on climate change in particular, the two have never seen eye-to-eye. Mr Trump pulled the US out of the Paris Agreement which aims to keep global warming below 1.5C, vowed to protect fossil fuel industries and rolled back environmental protections. Meanwhile, the UK became the first major economy to commit to net zero emissions by 2050 and next year will host the Cop26 summit,...

    Hillary Clinton celebrated a 'new page for America' on Saturday as Joe Biden defeated her old foe Trump to become elected the next President of the United States.  'The voters have spoken, and they have chosen Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to be our next president and vice president. It's a history-making ticket, a repudiation of Trump, and a new page for America. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.  'Onward, together,' she tweeted after the call was made for Biden at 11.25am. Clinton had long advocated for Biden to be elected.  Biden's win comes four years after Trump defeated Hillary 306 to 232 electoral college votes. She won the popular vote - a fact she has clung on to for years since. Biden won both the electoral college and the popular vote.  Clinton and Biden in 2008 when he was campaigning as Barack Obama's running mate 
    Joe Biden was projected Saturday to become the nation’s next president, according to the Associated Press, after campaigning on an ambitious domestic agenda he hopes will improve voters’ finances and invigorate an economy battered by the coronavirus pandemic. Tax hikes for the rich, broadened health care coverage and student loan forgiveness were some of the projects on candidate Biden’s to-do list. Turning though visions into laws, as the president, will be the trick now. The Democratic challenger unseated President Donald Trump, but the majority party in the Senate is an unanswered question. Both parties have 48 seats now and races in Georgia, North Carolina and Alaska were still undeclared as of Friday morning. If Republicans maintained control, their opposition could scale down Biden’s plans. A Biden presidency and Republican Senate would confine a second stimulus to around $500 billion, one investor note said. If Democrats take control, it...
    NBA : The NBA could start on December 22, with a regular season shortened to 72 games. Which should allow players to be released for the Tokyo Olympics.

This is the direction taken by the negotiations between the NBA and its franchises according to Shams Charania.

The 638,000 nonfarm payrolls gain in October underscored both the resilience of the economic system as well as how far the business community has to go yet from the damage done during the first two months of the coronavirus pandemic. March and April saw the loss of 22 million jobs, 12.1 million of which have been recovered. That means companies are still hiring, but lots of workers – 11.1 million – are still looking for jobs and themselves face a challenging landscape ahead. Near the top of the president's agenda, whether it's Joe Biden or Donald Trump, will be to continue mending the...
    I’d say that Friday’s Mets news came right out of a script of “Billions,” featuring the Steve Cohen-inspired hedge-fund magnate Bobby Axelrod, except that it actually, eerily resembled the “Entourage” segment when Ari Gold took over his old agency by marching in with a paintball gun and splattering all whom he wanted gone. Sandy Alderson, taking over his old team, surely passed on the paintball gun (and the in-person meetings, this being 2020) but made his point all the same, firing general manager Brodie Van Wagenen as well as associates Allard Baird, Jared Banner, Adam Guttridge and Omar Minaya a mere hour after Cohen closed on his purchase of the Mets. Wow. So with an open canvas, the baseball operations Band-Aid ripped off just like that, team president Alderson’s mission stands as simple: Build a superstar front office for the long haul worthy of Cohen’s superstar owner status … while...

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- With his signature, Governor Newsom historically made California the first state in the country studying and developing proposals for potential reparations."I like the spirit of what you guys are saying... this is not just about California," Newsom said as he signed the legislation. "This is about making an impact, a dent across the rest of the country."On the federal level, the push for reparations for African Americans has gone nowhere, despite a century of effort. Congress has approved reparations for survivors of Japanese American internment camps during World War II, Native Americans, and Holocaust survivors."I don't think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago for whom none of us currently living are responsible is a good idea," said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell before a rare House hearing on reparations in June 2019.But Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, who authored the California legislation, says it's deeper than...

    Rocket Laboratory It is set to complete an important test for its rocket reusability program during its next voyage, which is currently scheduled to take place in mid-November, with a missile widow opening on November 16th.

    Almost President-Elect Joe Biden Night Owls, a themed open thread, appears at Daily Kos seven days a week A year ago September, David Dayen at The American Prospect  wrote The Day One Agenda. The Next Administration: Using Presidential Power for Good. Now that we’re on the cusp of President Joe Biden’s administration, it’s valuable reading again. Here’s an excerpt: The Prospect has identified 30 meaningful executive actions, all derived from authority in specific statutes, which could be implemented on Day One by a new president. These would not be executive orders, much less abuses of authority, but strategic exercise of legitimate presidential power. Without signing a single new law, the next president can lower prescription drug prices, cancel student debt, break up the big banks, give everybody who wants one a bank account, counteract the dominance of monopoly power, protect farmers from price discrimination and unfair dealing, force divestment from fossil fuel projects, close a...
    While many might not have taken Kanye West very seriously during this presidential election, the rapper is very firm on getting some votes for the win! It might be a battle between Joe Biden and Donald Trump and a rather important one, but Kanye West voted for himself as a write-in candidate for the post of the President of the US.  The singer took to social media to share a video of him casting his vote this election. Kanye West Announces Bid for US Presidential Election 2020. Interestingly, this is the first time that Kanye has voted during an election and made sure he lets his fans know about it. Captioning the video as, “Keep believing Kayne 2020.

    Despite a long history of horror movies succeeding at the box office, Jason Blum struggled to get his movies into the theater. Conventionally wisdom relegated to a few times a year, mostly around Halloween. Horror movies didn’t have the prestige of dramas, or the universal appeal of blockbuster superhero movies, and were seen as risky investments, even if the numbers said otherwise. But after a decade of hits — Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Get Out — Jason Blum’s company Blumhouse Productions finds itself no longer chasing theatrical releases, especially as AMC and Regal struggle during the pandemic. Instead, streamers are coming to him, and the best part: they believe horror is a year-round affair. In many ways, Blum has often been ahead of the curve—and the scary, spooky, and violent movies he’s released on shoestring budgets might be the best signal of where streaming is going next. “I’m acutely aware...
    VIDEO3:4403:44Stocks are rallying, led by tech despite a tight election race — Here's what four experts say on the moveTrading Nation A remarkably tight presidential race didn't stop stocks from rallying on Wednesday. Technology led the major averages higher as election results rolled in, with some ascribing the gains to the preliminary results confirming there wouldn't be a blue wave, or Democratic sweep of all three branches of government. Market analysts largely agree that a divided government would be good for the stock market. Here's what four of them told CNBC on Wednesday: Jeremy Siegel, Russell E. Palmer professor of finance at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, said a Democratic White House and Republican Senate would be "excellent" for the economy and for stocks: "First of all, I think [former Vice President Joe] Biden is going to win this, and I think very definitely the Senate is going to...
    New York (CNN Business)Stocks spiked Monday — and with one day to go until the election, investors seem to be betting on a Joe Biden win and a blue wave that could lead to more economic stimulus for consumers and businesses. But the optimism may be overdone. Any deal that happens isn't likely to be finalized until after the inauguration next January. In other words, too late for anyone counting on extra cash tor shopping during the holidays. "I'm skeptical that anything can get done in a lame-duck session," said Kevin Grogan, managing director of the investment committee at Buckingham Wealth Partners. What a Biden victory could mean for energy, health care and tech stocksThe lack of any new stimulus in the fourth quarter could derail the nascent economic rebound as well, making it tougher for consumers and small businesses around the holidays.

    That doesn’t necessarily mean it will be slow. One early test result suggested the 1080 might be faster than the Snapdragon 865. While it’s good to be skeptical of pre-release benchmark data, it suggests that Samsung’s 2021 mid-rangers might offer brisk performance where they used to be somewhat sluggish. This might be Samsung’s most important chip for the coming year. While the company’s mobile profits have been soaring despite the pandemic, it still faces a market where economic hardship will limit how much customers are willing to spend. In other words, people will be more likely to buy a mid-range phone (and thus the Exynos 1080) than a premium device using the Exynos 990’s successor. In that light, it makes sense to generate buzz for a chip that could be relatively ubiquitous. Samsung
    In an era where virtually every issue is polarized, addressing the tremendous societal ills that are caused by factory farming and its treatment of animals, workers, public health, and our environment is an issue with rare bipartisan support and should be part a much larger part of the national conversation. Don’t just take my word for it—look at what the people have to say. A study conducted for the ASPCA in 2018 found that “seventy-six percent of consumers are concerned about the welfare of animals raised for food. High levels of concern are found across demographic groups, regardless of gender, age, race, education, party identification, or household income.” And citizens are willing to stand by these principles in the polling booths: when Americans have had the chance to vote in years past to protect the treatment of farm animals, they’ve done so in large numbers and across party lines. ...
