    The free-agency market in the NBA demands quick and calculated decision-making. A franchise has to be ‘pit-stop’ quick to fix its troubles by signing the right talent. The Philadelphia 76ers somehow pulled this logical stunt, not once, but twice in the past month. The team successfully signed the likes of Doc Rivers and Daryl Morey to strengthen their on-court performance as well as the front office. The brains of these NBA greats, coupled with a fairly young team with a lot of talent, can prove to be a new dawn for the Sixers. How did the Sixers manage to sign Daryl Morey? The co-owner of the franchise, Michael G. Rubin, gave an interview where he heaped praise on various executives who made this deal possible. He began by suggesting, “After the end of this season, it’s fair to say we were all disappointed with where we were. You’ve got...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has praised Jerry Seinfeld for his op-ed saying that 'tough New Yorkers' would bring the city back to life following the COVID-19 pandemic after a comedy club owner declared the city was dead and wouldn't recover.  During his daily press conference on Tuesday, de Blasio said a true New Yorker 'stands and fights' to make the city better despite the ongoing pandemic and escalating crime and homelessness.  His comments in support of Seinfeld came a day after the comedian penned an op-ed for the New York Times in which he told the people who are 'wailing and whimpering' that NYC is dead to get a grip because it will 'sure as hell' bounce back. Seinfeld's stance was a jab at NYC comedy club owner and hedge-fund entrepreneur James Altucher who wrote a blog post earlier this month declaring that that the city was dead and would never...
    Chopard's co-owner has been accused of being the 'Ghislaine Maxwell' of the jewelry world after she allegedly 'pimped out' herself by being overtly sexual to rich male clients and suggested a female employee do the same, a federal sexual harassment complaint claims.  Desiree Gallas, a former public relations representative for Chopard, has alleged that her boss Caroline Scheufele would offer herself up sexually to wealthy men and implied she should do the same in order to sell high-end jewelry pieces.  The 38-year-old leveled her accusations against Chopard in a Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint that was first filed in October last year.   Gallus, who says she worked at the company for five years until she was fired in 2019, has accused her boss and Chopard of supporting a 'sex for dollars' culture and claimed her firing was retaliatory. It is not clear from the complaint if Scheufele or Gallus ever had sex with...
    The co-owner of Atilis Gym in New Jersey, which had its license revoked after defying a coronavirus pandemic order to stay closed, claimed on Fox News Thursday that the government is intentionally keeping gyms closed so it can stop people from building their immune systems and “mandate a peak and a spike in Covid cases in the Fall.” After being asked by Brian Kilmeade what the logic for health clubs is, Atilis Gym co-owner Frank Trumbetti replied, “I have no idea what stats they’re looking at but I sincerely think that they actually are looking to make sure that they can mandate a peak and a spike in Covid cases in the Fall so they can shut everything down again.” “That is my honest belief, that if they open up gyms they know that everybody’s going to go to them, they’re going to get healthy, they’re going to feel better,...

    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has bought a stake in the XFL. The actor and his business partner, Dany Garcia, joined Gerry Cardinale and RedBird Capital Partners to acquire the bankrupt professional football league's parent company for about $15 million. Alpha Entertainment, which owns the eight-team league, filed for Chapter 11 protection in April, earlier this year, after the coronavirus pandemic forced it to shut down after only five weeks of play.

    US submits formal notice it will withdraw from WHO Devin Nunes winery, yacht clubs, a resort in West Virginia owned by its governor – heres who got PPP loans Candace Parker on Atlanta Dream co-owner Kelly Loeffler: There’s no place in the league for her Atlanta Dream co-owner Kelly Loeffler, known more widely as a U.S. senator from Georgia, sparked another round of criticism from her league on Tuesday when she suggested the WNBA put American flags on warmup jerseys instead of “Black Lives Matter” and “Say Her Name.” In a letter to commissioner Cathy Engelbert, Loeffler criticized the WNBA’s current plan as “a message of exclusion.” “The truth is, we need less — not more politics in sports,” Loeffler wrote, apparently not realizing the irony of a team-owning senator complaining about politics in sports. “In a time when polarizing politics is as divisive as ever, sports has the power to...
    Tati Westbrook (left) has claimed that Jeffree Star is a co-owner of Morphe Cosmetics, and that it played a role in allegedly stirring up a feud between Westbrook and James Charles. Tati Westbrook/YouTube; Jason Koerner/Getty Images The events of the 2019 YouTube beauty YouTuber war are being relitigated amid new controversy surrounding Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star.  Tati Westbrook revealed new information about her drama with James Charles in a video on Tuesday, claiming that Dawson and Star had stoked her fight with Charles because they were jealous of his YouTube success.  Westbrook said that she believed Star was a co-owner of Morphe Cosmetics, a common theory on YouTube, which would play into her theory of why she claims Star and Dawson "manipulated" her to attack Charles.  It's unclear what stake, if any, Star owns, but he has claimed to be an investor in the past.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Indoor dining resumes in Illinois on Friday, as the state enters Phase 4 of reopening for the coronavirus pandemic. The man behind one of the most successful restaurant groups in Chicago has a request businesses rarely make – for more government regulation. He told CBS 2’s Tara Molina otherwise, he fears restaurants could be forced to close for good. “If another restaurant doesn’t do this well, or we fail to do it properly, that’s actually bad for the whole industry,” said Nick Kokonas. And Kokonas knows the industry well. The co-owner of the award-winning Alinea Group understands what works and what doesn’t. And while Kokonas is comfortable charting new territory, he says at this point, when it comes to moving forward in the age of COVID-19, everyone needs a better map. “It would be really, really nice to have liability guidelines for businesses,” he said. He would...
