Covid-19 News: Live Updates – The New York Times

Here’s what you need to know:

Credit…Jim Wilson/The New York Times

When infections began rising sharply in the U.S. in September, the growth was driven largely by outbreaks in the Upper Midwest. States like North Dakota and Wisconsin soon became the hardest hit in the nation, relative to their size, and the region continues to struggle.

Now, though, with the whole country’s daily average of new cases is as high as it has ever been — over 171,000 — the most rapid growth is happening elsewhere. Nine states are reporting more than twice as many new cases a day as they did two weeks ago, and none of them are in the Midwest.

The surges in those states — Arizona, California, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Vermont — reflect a still-escalating national crisis. Officials warn that

War On Drugs Frontman Talks Live LP and Remixing the Rolling Stones

While work continues on the War on Drugs’ follow-up to 2017’s “A Deeper Understanding,” which won the best rock album Grammy, the band is releasing its first live album, appropriately titled “Live Drugs.” The 10-track project is being issued today by bandleader Adam Granduciel’s Super High Quality Records imprint and will be accompanied by a four-episode podcast about its genesis, launching Nov. 23.

Granduciel says he’s always wanted to do a live record, and was sitting on more than a dozen tracks from the two-year worldwide “A Deeper Understanding” tour mixed by longtime collaborator Jon Low back in the summer of 2019. But the plan was to wait to release them until at least 2022, because “I figured we’d do another record and have another cycle, and then be able to pull from five or six records worth of material,” Granduciel tells Variety.

Indeed, before the COVID-19 pandemic, the

T-Mobile Stuffs 33 Extra Channels Into TVision Live TV Packages as Temporary Fix for Programming Disputes

Click here to read the full article.

T-Mobile has come up with a short-term solution to address accusations from multiple TV programmers that its new TVision bundles violated distribution contracts — but the carrier’s headaches are far from over on the issue.

On Thursday, T-Mobile announced several “holideals” for customers. Among the offers: It’s adding 33 channels from Discovery, ViacomCBS, AMC Networks and Crown Media to its three TVision Live bundles for no additional cost.

T-Mobile says this is a “limited-time offer” and is positioning the lineup change as a special holiday-season gift to subscribers of the over-the-top pay-TV services. “We always go BIG during the holidays,” a T-Mobile spokeswoman said in an email, responding to a request for information about the promo. “This offer is all about giving customers even more this holiday season — just as all our holiday offers are.”

But in fact, T-Mobile is adding the

‘The Verdict of the People’: Georgia to Reaffirm Biden’s Victory

On Friday, Georgia election officials will certify that President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. won the state’s electoral votes after a hand recount was concluded.

In a winner-take-all system, close margins of voters leads to fights that are as fierce after Election Day as the campaigns before. The passions we feel reflect voters’ commitment to the ideals and principles they believe in. We all want our side to win because our side provides the best leadership for our nation and state. I know. I’m a passionate conservative and as I’ve said before, I’m a proud Trump supporter. I was with him early, in the 2016 election cycle, and he’s governed the nation by the same conservative principles that I hold dear. Like other Republicans I’m disappointed our candidate didn’t win Georgia’s

BWW Review: LES MISERABLES – THE STAGED CONCERT: THE SENSATIONAL 2020 LIVE RECORDING

BWW Review: LES MISERABLES - THE STAGED CONCERT: THE SENSATIONAL 2020 LIVE RECORDING

Today marks the release of Les Miserables – The Staged Concert: The Sensational 2020 Live Recording. In its 35th year, the musical remains as electric as ever.

Boublil and Schonberg’s iconic show has been immortalised for album format numerous times, many of which I own. The crowd’s reaction to this particular all-star cast and 65+ orchestra successfully captures the epic, impactful nature of the piece and gives it additional fire.

Recorded live at the Gielgud Theatre last year, the DVD was also released earlier in the month, so both companions are now covered! Having both watched and listened to the concert now, I can vouch that the emotions seen on your TV screen more than translate to the ears when solely listening to the recording.

The cast appearing on the album include Michael Ball as Javert, Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine,Matt Lucas as Thénardier, Rob
