third-quarter profit nearly doubled, the latest confirmation that, even in a pandemic and a recession, Wall Street can still make money.

Goldman reported a quarterly profit of $3.62 billion, or $9.68 a share, on revenue of $10.78 billion. Both measures were better than the expectations of stock analysts, who forecast $1.94 billion in profit, or $5.54 a share, on revenue of $9.38 billion. Goldman posted a profit of $1.88 billion, or $4.79 a share, in the third quarter of 2019.

Worries that the coronavirus would rival 2008 as a threat to the U.S. financial system have subsided for now. Banks’ trading fees have surged. Bond investors’ appetite has allowed companies that borrowed billions from banks in emergency loans this spring to pay them back. Big corporate bankruptcies have leveled off.

(Reuters) – Mallinckrodt filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday, saddled with lawsuits alleging it helped fuel the U.S. opioid epidemic.

Adding to its woes, the company in March also lost a court battle to avoid paying higher rebates to state Medicaid programs for its top-selling drug.

Mallinckrodt said on Monday it had agreed to pay $1.6 billion over several years to settle opioid-related litigation. About $450 million would be paid as part of its settlement once the company emerged from chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The company would then pay $200 million in the first and second year after its emergence from the bankruptcy, and $150 million subsequently through the seventh year.

Mallinckrodt had agreed to pay $260 million over

Intimidating Ku Klux Klan ‘business cards’ left in yards with Biden signs

Ku Klux Klan business cards describing a “social visit” from the hate group — and warning that the next one would be a “business call” — are appearing in the yards of Joe Biden supporters in Tennessee.

Shelbyville resident Breana Green told local outlet WSMV-TV that her friend’s home was targeted.

“We noticed that there was litter in the yard,” Green told the outlet. “I started to pick up the litter and noticed these business cards.”

About 20 Ku Klux Klan business cards bearing the threatening message were strewn across the yard, she said.

It appeared that whoever left the cards was provoked by the Biden-Harris sign in the yard, Green said.

“There [were] also tire marks in the yard which indicated the sign had been [run] over,” she told the outlet.

“I was really startled by it and also kind of scared,” Green told WPLN-FM, another local station.

She was working over 50 hours a week after having gone to school and having dropped a huge amount of money on her MBA, but was barely making it, despite having done everything she was told to be successful.

“I realized I was so far away from living the life I wanted to live. I quickly understood that no matter how hard I worked I would always be limited by the system and the value someone else put on me. I was good at my job, but it wasn’t my dream, passion, or gift. I decided I wanted to be happy. I decided I wanted to take a chance at being able to smile everyday when I woke up because I truly loved the work I was involved in. I

NOIDA: The industrial bodies in Gautam Budh Nagar has said that the recent order of the Environment Pollution (Prevention & Control) Authority banning diesel generator (DG) sets in the national capital region will be a “body blow” to thousands of units in the district, citing the long power cuts that take place almost every day.

As a token protest against the power distribution companies (discoms), the business communities have decided to make a daily report card mentioning about the hours of power cut.

Kulmani Gupta, chairman of Noida chapter of Indian Industries Association (IIA), said that all the 1,000-odd members of IIA in GB Nagar have been asked to keep a daily record of power cuts in their respective areas. “They have to face long power cuts at least thrice a day.

Ku Klux Klan cards left at Biden supporters’ homes in TN

Residents of a Tennessee town are on edge after Ku Klux Klan propaganda was found scattered in the yards of homes with political signs expressing support for Joe Biden.

“I was really startled by it and also kind of scared,” Shelbyville resident Breana Green told WPLN News of the moment she noticed a neighbor’s yard littered with 20 “business cards” purporting to be from the white supremacist hate group.

The cards described a “social visit” from the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and warned, “don’t make the next visit a business call.”

Green said her neighbor’s Biden-Harris yard sign was also destroyed and appeared to have been run over, WSMV reported.

”It’s scary knowing that just supporting a presidential candidate can incite this kind of vandalism,” she told the news station.

Another resident reported that the same cards were left behind after someone swiped a Biden-Harris sign from a
