WHAT'S TRENDING

  • CNN will air a two-hour special honoring the class of 2020 on Saturday at 7pm ET. Keynote speakers include former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, Amy Schumer, Pharrell Williams, Foster the People and many more.
     
  • Some restaurants are applying a COVID-19 surcharge to bills and there’s a mix of responses. Unfortunately, since restaurants can’t serve at full capacity, the costs are bound to be passed on through the surcharge or increased prices. For a seat in front of a Korean BBQ grill again, I’ll happily pay.

IN BUSINESS / ECONOMY

  • Amazon is partnering with Vogue and CFDA to open a new store showcasing independent designers. The fashion world has tried it’s best to stay away from the e-commerce giant, but with a pandemic and many designers at risk of going out of business, Amazon can come to the rescue and finally break in.

IN POLITICS / GOVERNMENT

  • Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled against Governor Tony Ever’s stay-at-home orders on Wednesday. Hours after the ruling, bars opened and were filled with patrons not wearing masks or following social distancing guidelines. Many business owners felt the risk of exposure was not worth the financial burden. This will be interesting to track.
     
  • Melinda Gates advocates for caregiving policy reform. Gates is calling on Congress and business leaders to increase paid sick leave days, create more flexible working hours and offer onsite daycare. She warns that without these policies, the burden falls on women who are more likely to leave the workforce to care for family members. #facts

JUST FOR YOU

  • Management tips – 7 things that smart bosses don’t do. #3 is a bit debatable. Maybe it’s the former consultant in me, but sometimes a presentation can help convey certain messages better 🤷‍♀️
     
  • Productivity – It’s always interesting to hear the routines of top leaders. Here are 3 Nightly Habits that Helped Steve Jobs Rest and Recharge
