    TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s top business regulator plans to start meeting with bar operators and craft brewers, amid concerns about establishments closing permanently if a state ban on serving drinks for on-site consumption remains in place.

    President Donald Trump said the US should continue reopening its economy, despite a recent increase in the death rate from the coronavirus. Speaking at a press briefing Thursday, the president said that given the disproportionate danger of the virus to the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions, people in high risk groups should be “sheltered” from the virus, while the ‘young and healthy’ are permitted to return to work or school. “We want to get the world back to what it was, and I think we'll have that, including great job numbers, including so many things that are happening so...

    In a meeting of the government's coronavirus cabinet today, Construction and Housing Minister Yakov Litzman (UTJ) demanded that synagogues be subject to the same restrictions as those applied to hotel restaurants, which are permitted to accommodate up to 35% of their capacity at any one time. "There is no logical reason for discriminating between people coming to pray in a synagogue, where only 10 people are currently permitted to gather at any one time, and restaurant clientele, where up to 35% of the area's capacity may be filled. The discrimination is even more blatant considering that people eating in a...

    Unemployment benefits expire tomorrow The $600 a week unemployment benefits are scheduled to end tomorrow. The Cares Act — the $2.2 trillion stimulus package — authorized $600 a week of enhanced unemployment benefits. The Cares Act references July 31, 2020 as the official expiration date of these unemployment benefits, which are also known as Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation. However, the U.S. Labor Department says that states can pay unemployment benefits no later than the week ending one week before July 31, 2020. Since July 31 is not a Saturday or Sunday, this means the week prior becomes the end date...

    Working parents are in a tough spot these days — juggling child care, home schooling and full-time work. The situation has become critical as many school districts have announced they will not fully resume in-person classes this fall as coronavirus cases continue to surge. So parents are getting creative, forming “pods” with other families to share the cost and burden of home schooling. Former math teacher and tutor Jeffrey Hahn is advertising his services as a pod teacher on his Brooklyn neighborhood forum. His base rate for pod-teaching is $250 a session, and he said he’s already getting interest. “It...
