Delaware governor sets in-home mask mandate

DOVER, Del. — Delaware’s governor is issuing a stay-at-home advisory and implementing a universal mask mandate requiring people to wear cloth face coverings even in their own homes if someone outside the immediate household is present.

Gov. John Carney on Thursday also recommended that schools suspend in-person instruction from Dec. 14 to Jan. 8 and resume hybrid learning on Jan. 11. Winter sports competitions will be prohibited during that period.

The mask mandate will require all Delawareans to wear cloth face coverings anytime they are indoors with anyone outside their immediate household. Delaware has had a public mask mandate since April 28 requiring use of face coverings in public settings where social distancing is not possible.

A spokesman for the governor says officials are relying on voluntary compliance with the mask mandate.

The Tuscan bank, which Italy rescued in 2017, has said its capital reserves will fall below minimum thresholds in the first quarter due to a bad loan clean-up it has just completed and provisions booked against pending legal disputes.

The bank’s board will meet on Dec. 17 to look at how much capital it needs depending on the various strategic alternatives included in a new business plan that will be presented that day, MPS said.

Quebec cancels plan to allow holiday gatherings

MONTZREAL — The Quebec government is cancelling its plan to allow gatherings over four days of the Christmas holidays.

Premier Francois Legault announced Thursday that the province will no longer permit multi-household gatherings of up to 10 people from Dec. 24 through Dec. 27 as had been planned.

Legault first announced the Christmas plan on Nov. 19, saying people could get together as long as they quarantined for a week before and a week after the holiday period. But coronavirus infections, COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths are on the rise and the province’s health system is deemed fragile due to a lack of staffing.

Legault says it’s not realistic to think the numbers will go down sufficiently by Christmas.


The French-speaking Canadian province reported 1,470 coronavirus cases Thursday.

Despite COVID-19, The Concurrent Planning Market Is Booming

Some suppliers of supply chain planning (SCP) software are experiencing robust growth despite the global pandemic. Solvoyo expects to grow by 15% this year. Kinaxis, a public company, reports that their revenues over the first 3 quarters are up year over year by over 25%. RELEX Solutions expects their revenues to be up by about 30% by year end despite the company’s decision to deemphasize growth and become more profitable. Adexa expects that their revenues will grow by 35% or more by the end of the calendar year.

For each company, there are more than one reason for the robust growth, but all make the point that the need for an agile supply chain has never been stronger. Dramatic demand shocks have been all but impossible to forecast. Agility is what is required to respond effectively when supply chains are being whiplashed

New Stimulus Plan Gets More GOP Interest; McConnell Holds Back

McConnell has yet to publicly embrace it, but several other key GOP lawmakers are eyeing it as the foundation for a deal on pandemic relief.

Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a close ally of President Donald Trump, said he backed the compromise and spoke with Trump about it.

“I told him that the $908 billion bill has bipartisan support,” Graham said. “If the president came out for it, you’d have a large number of Republicans and Democrats vote for it.”

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley was among those expressing openness to the bill Thursday. He told reporters he’s studying it, but wants a cap on state and local aid — a major point of contention between Republicans and Democrats throughout the half-year of stalemate over Covid-19 relief — of $150 billion.

Senator Kevin Cramer, a North Dakota Republican, said of the proposal, “I like the effort. It strikes

Nicklaus: Inclusive growth is goal of St. Louis group’s 2030 jobs plan | David Nicklaus

The plan begins by recounting St. Louis’ many challenges, including political fragmentation, racial division and slow population growth. That combination of factors, it says, has created “a culture of scarcity where growth is perceived as a zero-sum game that rewards only a few places at the expense of others.”

That’s an unusually downbeat introduction for a business-funded plan, but Bruce Katz of New Localism Advisors, the plan’s lead author, said that’s where interviews with St. Louisans led him.

“They feel like the fractured nature of the metro area means that the city and region has not performed as well as it should have, and clearly there’s unanimity that too many people have been left behind,” he said. “Usually these plans do start with the opportunity set first, but the challenges were so well presented, I thought it was more honest to start with that.”

3 Things All 401(k) Plan Sponsors Share No Matter The Size Of The Firm

Retirement plans come in all shapes and sizes. You may think your plan is too big (or too small) to share the same concerns with smaller (or larger) plans. It turns out, however, there’s a lot in common between really large and really little 401(k) plans.

This is not to say there aren’t differences between big and small companies when it comes to their 401(k) plans. For one thing, smaller companies don’t have the same staffing capacity. This puts a squeeze on their ability to address critical matters as ERISA places similar requirements on all plans, no matter what their size.

So, yes, small company sponsored plans do have a substantial issue that their larger brethren do not. “They are not able to spend the appropriate amount of time on the plan given their limited resources,” says Preston Traverse, Partner-Mid Market Solutions Leader at Mercer in Boston.
