After 33 years in the doughnut business, San Jose couple closing their shop

Doughnuts have been a lifeline for the Lim family.

For the past 33 years, Chip Lim has arrived well before dawn each morning to start baking at the shop he and his wife, Sara, own at the corner of Union and Camden avenues in San Jose’s Cambrian district.

This Sunday, they’ll sell their last chocolate glazed, old-fashioned and apricot jam-filled doughnuts and turn out the lights at Sunny Donuts. A slowdown in sales during this coronavirus year has accelerated their retirement plans, said son Ben Lim, who — along with brother Howard and sister Emily — grew up working in this family business.

Stocks climb, closing out biggest weekly gain in 3 months

Wall Street closed out its best week in three months Friday as investors drew encouragement from ongoing negotiations on Capitol Hill aimed at delivering more aid to the ailing U.S. economy.

The S&P 500 rose 0.9%, its third straight gain. The benchmark index ended the week with a 3.8% gain, its strongest rally since early July.

Much of this week’s focus has been on Washington, where President Donald Trump sent markets on a sudden skid Tuesday after he halted negotiations on a support package for the economy until after the election. He appeared to change his mind a few hours later, however. On Friday, Trump was cheerleading the prospect of a deal, declaring on Twitter that talks on a new aid package are “moving along. Go Big!”

“The fact that Trump reversed course, I think, has given people optimism again,” said Randy Frederick, vice president of trading & derivatives at

Regal closing leaves few movie theaters in Central Mass. – News – telegram.com

It was supposed to be the year that James Bond and Wonder Woman duke it out for box-office supremacy, while marking the triumphant return of the Ghostbusters, Godzilla, giant Arrakis sandworms and hotshot naval pilot Maverick on the big screen.

Instead, it turned into a year of darkened movie theaters and pushed back release dates for potential Hollywood blockbusters because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Nearly all movie theaters in Central Massachusetts are shut down.

Regal Cinemas announced this week that all 536 theaters nationwide would be “temporarily suspending” all operations at the end of the day on Thursday, including Regal Cinemas Solomon Pond 15 in Marlboro.

In addition, Cinemagic in Sturbridge, Cinemaworld in Fitchburg, Elm Draught House in Millbury, Entertainment Cinemas in Leominster, Gardner Cinemas in Gardner, Strand Theatre in Clinton, and West Boylston Cinemas have all been closed for months. Showcase Cinema North in Worcester, which is owned by

New British Airways First Class Suites Same Seat But With Closing Doors

There’s not much good news coming out of the airline industry these days. Many carriers have grounded large portions of their fleets, slashed flight schedules in response to travel restrictions and border closures, and even put up their frequent-flier programs as collateral for loans and bailouts. But at least one bright spot landed at London Heathrow Airport earlier this week in the form of a gleaming new first-class suite with closing doors aboard British Airways’ most recently delivered Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Last year, the airline began a much-needed update of its business-class cabins, starting with the Airbus A350-1000s joining its fleet, and followed by a refurbishment of some Boeing 777s, then the delivery of its first Boeing 787-10s earlier this year. Taking a cue from newer suite-style layouts with closing doors that can be found aboard competitors like

H&M closing hundreds of stores as pandemic accelerates online shift

Clothing giant H&M plans to close hundreds of stores next year as the COVID-19 pandemic accelerates a shift to online shopping.

The world’s second-largest fashion retailer announced the move on Thursday, according to AM New York, following a smaller than anticipated drop in third-quarter profit.

H&M BOUNCES BACK FROM CORONAVIRUS SLUMP

Although H&M has expanded its reach globally over the past couple of decades, it has begun closing more brick-and-mortar stores and opening fewer of them. The Swedish fast-fashion firm is aiming to cut its numbers by 250 in 2021, representing  5% of its current network.

The portfolio shift comes even as H&M, like rivals, begins to recover from pandemic-related shutdowns and an economic slump.

“Although the challenges are far from over, we believe

Editorial: Closing Parris Island is an awful idea, and not just because it’s in SC | Editorials

Americans can be pretty stubborn, and as a result even the best plans too often fail, because leaders — be they in government, business, the nonprofit sector or even in our social circles or families — can’t get enough buy-in from followers. Even the idea of being a “follower” is repugnant to many Americans.

The one exception is the military. In the military, people respect the chain of command. Soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines — especially Marines — have it drilled into their brains from the moment they enter basic training that when the chain of command breaks down, people can die.

So if the commandant of the Marine Corps decides that his subordinates are going to do something, you can bet they’ll do it. That includes complying with the congressional mandate to start training male and female recruits together at its Parris Island and San Diego training depots.

Marine Corps considers closing Parris Island training station

If Parris Island closes, South Carolina could lose hundreds of millions of dollars, official says.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Parris Island in Beaufort County is home to the Marine Corps’ recruit depot for the East Coast. It’s been accepting recruits since 1915.

According to reports from Military.com, the Marines are considering closing both Parris Island and their West Coast training facility in San Diego to combine them into a new location.

The report says both locations will soon be required to accommodate coed training but would need renovations to do so. The Marines say it might be more cost efficient to shut down and build a new boot camp somewhere else.

But South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster isn’t so fond of the idea. The Governor’s spokesperson Brian Symmes tells News19, “Parris Island’s historic and economic significance is woven into the very fabric of our state and the Lowcountry. Simply put, there
