Shippers scramble as holiday shopping goes online

COLONIE — Merchants told us to shop early. Health officials told us to stay home.

The result? An avalanche of online purchases that is burying parcel delivery trucks and postal carriers.

UPS, which normally operates one daily round-trip from Albany International Airport, upped that to two round-trips by early November, then doubled it again.

This week, UPS began operating four round-trips from Albany most weekdays. Each of the Boeing 757s can carry up to 88,000 pounds, or 44 tons, of cargo.

“It’s an indication of the online shopping that’s going on nationally and in the Capital Region,” observed airport spokesman Doug Myers.

UPS has also altered some of its package pickups to match demand with its capacity, UPS spokesman Jim Mayer told the Times Union, after The Wall Street Journal reported that drivers had been instructed not to pick up some packages from its largest customers following Cyber Monday promotions.

Why 2020 Has Been The Perfect Year For Online Daters Looking For Something Serious

We are in the midst of Cuffing Season, the time of year when dating activity rises as more singles actively seek committed relationships. Cuffing Season in 2020 might at first blush seem at odds with the reality of the continued surge of the Covid-19 pandemic and the newest round of stay-at-home orders around the U.S.

However, far more than a season, 2020 could more aptly be called Cuffing Year, as it has caused a seismic shift in how many have approached finding love in 2020.

“People are being more intentional about dating” reports Rachel DeAlto, Match’s Chief Dating Expert. (Full disclosure: I’ve previously worked with Match.) Match has rolled out new features in 2020 such as Match Dates, where members can mutually indicate serious interest and move to a separate inbox where they can video chat. According to DeAlto, Match’s in-app video use is up and will remain a feature

No magic trick will solve the dire cash shortage of one of the city’s last magic shops.

Magic Inc. has been around for nearly 100 years and is known internationally as a mecca for accomplished and aspiring prestidigitators.

The owners and staff of Magic, 1838 W. Lawrence Ave., hope an online fundraising drive will save the business.

“We have to re-up with our landlord and, how shall I say delicately, they’re not playing ball,” said Sandy Marshall, who owns the shop. “We kind of hope we can stay there, but time will tell.”

Marshall began an online fundraising drive over the weekend seeking $50,000. As of Thursday morning, donations totaled $9,313.

Marshall, who spent part of his childhood living above the store’s previous location at 5082 N. Lincoln Ave., said the magic shop is beloved for a number of reasons.

“If you buy a trick online and can’t figure out
