Quoted @CNN

Nearly a third of the nurses who've died of coronavirus in the US are Filipino, even though Filipino nurses make up just 4% of the nursing population nationwide, according to a recent report from the largest nurses' union in the country. https://t.co/KWdVEOVZSC

Just heartbroken. https://t.co/vGgKmAPEU6

A TRUE GIFT THIS THANKSGIVING https://t.co/i206lmT8A4

Just like the bounty of sides that accompany Thanksgiving, there was a lot of economic news released today, so @YAN0 and I compiled this roundup for you: https://t.co/mmUbqZRYP0

as a testament to @hels' writing and my own reporting, my lunch today was a can of Trader Joe's turkey chili I reheated in the microwave: https://t.co/4C0E5h0fDu

very proud to have my @qz report on American cooking fatigue and prepared food sales cited in the same paragraph as @Rumaan and @tejalrao in this article by @hels: https://t.co/QkT6wJVbuC

Huge spike in formation of new businesses in the US last quarter. Most appear to be digital and/or sole proprietorships. https://t.co/vB9tHbHSdI by @karenkho https://t.co/w0Jl0fGm2y

I looked into what's driving a huge spike in new business applications in the US, including the growth in non-retail and the data showing huge increases in weekly applications in several states. https://t.co/373iK9PFtm

Did you try to buy a smaller turkey this year? Did you know the average size has steadily grown since 2008? Or that most of them are frozen because US inventories started building since last year? (Btw, it's time to start thawing the one in your freezer.) https://t.co/CZlMoTZfUL

I did not really care about Star Wars, and now I look forward to new episodes because it means watching a man flail at babysitting in space and randomly asking strangers if they've seen other people like him, while @bitterasiandude tries to figure out what the heck he's doing

I'm so glad I got to write this piece about collective action in book publishing for The Outline before it folded. https://t.co/3tAo0M5OKE https://t.co/mcMNgkMWPM

exclusive: Penguin Random House Canada staff say the publishing giant ambushed them with news of Jordan Peterson's new book. Staff confronted management at a tearful town hall Monday; many want it cancelled:  https://t.co/6cQcnhSJSl

What happens on the stock markets and indices is important, but even record highs don't increase the wealth of most Americans because data shows their portfolios are much smaller than the richest 10%. https://t.co/hMEiAx5jWP

Two things to remember about the Dow hitting 30,000:
1. Stocks are predominantly held by the wealthiest 10% of Americans
2. Their holdings grew much more during the Trump presidency compared to everyone else: https://t.co/hMEiAx5jWP https://t.co/GgiikN9oCY

one important thing about The Mandalorian and the ridiculous side quests is I never think about the pandemic while watching them, I just wonder things like how hard it is to clean blue burp-up

Quoted @katiekings

Does Google not care to direct people to Meghan Markle's own words? She shared her and Prince Harry's miscarriage in NYT so others could find connection, only to have her experience filtered through tabloids on search in UK? https://t.co/lyVL6oFw8e https://t.co/Vjy542EA0T

The news ecosystem is so broken, and Google is such a big part of the reason why. https://t.co/nQ1eV2vUDB

From coronavirus. The neverending societally-enforced tragedy of being Black in America. The injustice of this is relentless and crushing. Truly heartbreaking. https://t.co/drbjMfBqSM

828,000 Americans filed for unemployment benefits last week (regular state programs, not seasonally adjusted). That's not counting the 312,000 who applied under the federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program (which expires a month from now).
