Sidelined from the trail because of his bout with coronavirus, President Donald Trump is planning to hold a campaign event at the White House this weekend, a person with knowledge of the event told USA TODAY.

Trump expects to speak from a balcony at the White House on Saturday, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Details were not immediately clear.

Planning for the event comes as the White House has been criticized for hosting an official ceremony last weekend on the South Lawn from which many attendees later tested positive for the virus. Dr. Anthony Fauci described that event, to mark the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, as a “super spreader.”

How Realtors Can Turn Around A Failing Online Marketing Campaign

Sam Mehrbod (Ph.D.) is a Top Producer Realtor, Investor, and CEO at Roomvu, an engine built for Realtors to convert their audience to leads.

In 2017, I co-founded a marketing platform for real estate agents. As a real estate insider and from my several years of experience as a realtor, I know agents’ pain: The business is rewarding, but it’s highly competitive. This is what makes effective marketing so important.

At the end of the day, I’ve found that many real estate agents tend to use Google and Facebook for advertising, just like any other small business. And every agent knows they have to educate their audience. In their online advertising, for example, they know they should elaborate more on the benefits of working with them and such.

But do people get the same impression from marketing initiatives like before? Seeing an endless stream of ads and content

The campaign comes as Yellowstone County Health Officer John Felton has said new rules will issued if Billings can’t halt the increase in its new cases, and as health providers issued a plea for people for people to follow health precautions.

Swiss government opposes responsible business initiative campaign

ZURICH, Oct 6 (Reuters) – Switzerland’s government urged voters on Tuesday to reject a plan to hold Swiss-based companies responsible by law for human rights and environmental abuses abroad, saying the campaign by activists went too far.

Proponents of the “responsible business initiative” want Swiss companies to apply mandatory due diligence to identify risks to people and the environment in all their business, even involving suppliers abroad, and let victims seek redress in Switzerland.

The public will vote on the initiative in a referendum on Nov. 29 under the country’s system of direct democracy.

Switzerland is home to a number of multinationals, from Nestle to commodities trading house Glencore. Many businesses reject the proposed changes saying they would lead to a flood of legal cases.

“The government too wants better protection of human rights and the environment. But for the government, this initiative is the wrong path,” the justice ministry

I will keep you in suspense,” he said, claiming the race was already fixed against him. “That’s not how democracy works,” replied his opponent, Hillary Clinton, who went on to win the popular vote but lose the election.
