Business News: new coffee house…used cars & GF liquor license moves

The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits rose last week from the lowest point of the pandemic, even as the job market appears to be rebounding on the strength of a reopened economy. Jobless claims increased to 419,000 from 368,000 the previous week. The weekly number of first-time applications for benefits, which generally tracks layoffs, has fallen steadily since topping 900,000 in early January. Economists say the increase is most likely a blip caused by some one-time factors.

New England Patriots: Bill Belichick dropping the ball with J.C. Jackson

Once again, New England Patriots Head Coach/GM Bill Belichick is dropping the ball on a terrific player by not getting J.C. Jackson, a top cornerback signed to an extension. This space ran an article on this topic before back in April, but the foot-dragging by Belichick on this boondoggle, especially with Stephon Gilmore’s situation up in the air, mandates another look.

The 2021 Polaris Slingshot R Is a 3-Wheeled Jet Ski for the Road

Whether they’re in cars or on the sidewalk, passers-by ask similar questions about the 2021 Polaris Slingshot R. “What is that?”; “how much does it cost?”; “do you need a motorcycle license to drive it?” That last inquiry is the key to understanding the Slingshot R’s appeal, but not necessarily in the way you might think. Because as it turns out, calling the Polaris Slingshot a three-wheeled motorcycle isn’t quite accurate. What it really is, is a wheeled version of a Jet Ski.

Daily Housekeeping Service Forever – Why It’s Now My #1 Hotel Perk

I’ve always loved daily housekeeping service. When we travel, I also want to take a vacation from some normal chores, and housekeeping consistently delivers in my stead. That’s why we don’t consider Airbnb, Vacasa, or vacation homes viable options for our family. In the morning, we do a brief once-over of the hotel room – return clothes and footwear to the drawers and closet, dispose of loose items, straighten up the bathroom vanity, etc. We enjoy housekeeping taking care of everything else. In my opinion, housekeeping is the most underappreciated segment of a hotel staff, and we try to remember this in our gratuities. However, we historically focused on hotels’ complimentary breakfast perks more than housekeeping.

GM And Cruise Want Ford To Stop Calling Its Hands-Free Driving Technology "BlueCruise"

General Motors is not happy with Ford’s driver-assistance technology name, Reuters reports. Why? Because BlueCruise, Ford’s tech, sounds too much like GM’s Super Cruise and Hyper Cruise, its own driver-assistance technologies, and Cruise, its robo-taxi service subsidiary. Both Ford’s BlueCruise and GM’s Super and Hyper Cruise systems are base-level autonomous...

Is Aaron Rodgers worth $90M guaranteed for two years, and can Broncos afford that?

Nothing in life is guaranteed. Well, unless you’re a superstar athlete, apparently. Aaron Rodgers was the MVP of the NFL last season, leading the league in passing touchdowns (48), passer rating (121.5) and QBR (84.4) among many other stat categories. He was as dynamic as he’s ever been, leading the Green Bay Packers to an NFC-best 13-3 record and to the NFC Championship Game where he was narrowly out-dueled by Tom Brady and the eventual Super Bowl champion Buccaneers.

GM Taking Legal Action Against Ford Over BlueCruise Hands-Free Driving System

Back in April, Ford announced they were jumping on the autonomous driving bandwagon with their BlueCruise hands-free driving system. Now, GM is taking legal action against the Blue Oval, as they believe the name infringes on their similar Super Cruise system. Over the past few weeks there have been ongoing...

The Lakers Have Reportedly Offered Kyle Kuzma And KCP To ‘Almost Every Team’ In The NBA

The Los Angeles Lakers need to fill a lot of roster spots while not having a lot of money to do so this offseason, which makes their upcoming offseason incredibly interesting. The biggest free agent decision for the Lakers will be Dennis Schröder, as the point guard is set to be one of the top free agent guards on the market after turning down a 4-year, $84 million extension during the season.

Bruce Cooper- Suns GM has a Long “To Do” List

What a great ride the Suns gave us all. No time to lament on what could have been. Time to roll up the sleeves and go to work on next season. Suns GM, James Jones, has shown that he is capable of putting together a championship level team all by himself. But it wouldn’t be any fun if I didn’t offer up my annual input relative to the Suns offseason. And one valuable lesson gleaned from the postseason; you can’t teach size!
