The Masters: No blooms, no fans, no roars will make this edition like no other

Nothing about the 84th edition of the Masters will look familiar until the champion slips his arms through a green jacket.

The purple, pink and white blooms of azaleas and dogwoods, which provide such a magnificent accent to Augusta National Golf Club in spring, will give way to Georgia’s autumn hues when the tournament tees off Thursday. The course itself might look familiar with its emerald green fairways, blazing white sand in the bunkers, towering Georgia pines and the still water of Rae’s Creek.

It most certainly won’t sound the same, though, not without thousands upon thousands of spectators framing each hole and sending those piercing roars from all corners of the course.

Profit jumps 82% at Buffett’s firm but virus hurts business | Business

Warren Buffett’s Omaha-based conglomerate reported an 82% jump in its third-quarter profit as the value of its investment portfolio soared, but Berkshire Hathaway said the coronavirus pandemic continued to hurt its assorted businesses, such as BNSF Railway Co.

Berkshire said Saturday that it earned $30.1 billion, or $18,994 per Class A share, during the quarter. That’s up from $16.5 billion, or $10,119 per Class A share, a year ago. Most of the gains were due to a $24.8 billion improvement in the estimated value of Berkshire’s investments, which include large stakes in Apple and Bank of America.

Buffett maintains that Berkshire’s operating earnings offer a better view of quarterly performance because they exclude investments and derivatives, which can vary widely. By that measure, Berkshire’s operating earnings declined by 32%, to $5.49 billion, or $3,452.45 per Class A share. That’s down from $8.07 billion, or $4,943.04 per Class A share, a

The lawsuit states that Starstruck allegedly violated the Talent Agencies Act numerous times and ignored the legal “licensing requirements.” Clarkson argued that all agreements between the parties should be “declared void and unenforceable,” including a verbal agreement that requires 15 percent commission on her gross earnings.

Starstruck’s attorney Bryan Freedman told People on Friday, November 6, that Clarkson’s filing “conveniently ignores the fact that Kelly had her own licensed talent agency [Creative Artists Agency] at all times.”

He added, “While Starstruck Management
