GoFundMe for Owner of Hair Salon Pelosi Visited Raises More Than $42,000

A GoFundMe campaign to help the owner of the San Francisco salon where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had her hair done in breach of COVID-19 rules has raised tens of thousands of dollars and garnered messages of support.

Erica Kious, the owner of eSalon SF, told Fox News she had received death threats after security footage showed Pelosi walking through her business on Monday without wearing a mask over her nose or mouth, contrary to the city’s coronavirus measures.

Personal care services are banned from operating indoors, although on Tuesday, the day after Pelosi’s visit, the city did allow for outdoor services as long as clients were socially distanced.

Morgan Stanley Bets on These 3 Stocks; Sees Over 40% Upside

Did the stock market’s epic rally just need a little breather? The last few weeks have seen stocks experience their first meaningful correction since the bull market kicked off in March. Now, the question swirling around the Street is, will the rally pick back up again, or is more downside on the way?According to Morgan Stanley’s chief U.S. equity strategist Mike Wilson, uncertainty regarding the presidential election and stalemate on the next stimulus package could lead to declines in September and October. “On the correction, there’s still downside as markets digest the risk of congressional gridlock on the next fiscal deal. While we think something will ultimately get done, it will likely take another few weeks to get it over the goal line,” he noted.However, Wilson argues the recent volatility in no way signals the end of the

An estimated 9 million low-income Americans are eligible for stimulus checks but haven’t gotten them yet

An estimated 9 million Americans who make less than $12,000 a year may be eligible for pandemic relief checks but haven’t received them yet, and the clock is ticking if they want to get the money this year.

They have until Oct. 15 to claim the payment by registering with the Internal Revenue Service. If they fail to meet the deadline, they’ll have to wait until 2021 to get the payment, according to the IRS.
But these low-income Americans may want to think twice before registering to get the money, experts told MarketWatch. If they use the IRS portal to claim their stimulus payment now, they could be delayed in receiving an important federal benefit: the Earned Income Tax Credit.

The IRS is mailing letters to the 9 million individuals starting on Sept. 24 outlining details about eligibility and information on how to claim their stimulus checks.

We have an incarceration crisis in America. This crisis is undermining the well-marketed values upon which our country is built: liberty and justice for all

The criminal justice system, at all levels, is stacked against communities of color, Black people, and immigrants. Black people are incarcerated at five times the rate of white people. One in three Black men will go to jail at some point in their lives and there is consensus that past efforts supposedly aimed at reducing violent crime

“We will make sure that GE respects its commitments regarding jobs in Belfort… I will have the opportunity to call GE Chairman and CEO Larry Culp (on the issue),” French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire told a hearing at the French Senate.

Owner of major Broadway theaters sues insurance companies over coronavirus payouts

Broadway theater owner Jujamcyn Theaters is suing its insurance companies, Federal Insurance Company and Pacific Indemnity Company, for paying merely $250,000 to cover what the company claims should be “tens of millions of dollars” in coronavirus-related losses.


The lawsuit, filed with the Southern District of New York, alleges that Federal Insurance Company “flatly denied coverage, refusing to pay even a penny to help Jujamcyn” while Pacific Indemnity paid the company $250,000, a fraction of what it claims it should’ve been paid under its insurance policy.

“Federal and Pacific knew, and publicly acknowledged, that they could be obligated to pay for massive losses in the event of a pandemic. Federal and Pacific also knew that they could use common and widely available exclusions to guard against being obligated to pay for pandemic-associated losses,” Jujamcyn said in the lawsuit. “However, they decided not to
