Read this post in Spanish.I love Thanksgiving. It’s a time to be with those you love, eating fabulous food and sharing memories.

America's COVID response grows more nonsensical, even as the pandemic gets worse

Sergio Flores/Getty I'm sweating bullets that my kid's school is going to close for no science-based reason, and we've already given up Thanksgiving. But I can't help but feel discouraged that my family's sacrifice is in vain. A winter hellscape awaits, even with encouraging vaccine news, because America's response to the coronavirus pandemic has been an endless loop of stupidity. A lot of Republican politicians deny science, while some prominent Democratic lawmakers cynically flout their...

Health and Wellness is a Winning Message for Franchise Brands 

If you have been feeling low lately, you aren’t alone. In fact, some franchise brands have noticed and are trying to help.

Recently released state guidelines allow Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and other large California theme parks to reopen at 25% capacity in tier 4 of Gov.
