A former Republican presidential candidate and staunch supporter of Donald Trump who refused to wear a mask during the coronavirus pandemic has died of the disease.Herman Cain learned of his diagnosis on June 29, nine days after attending a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he and many others crowded together without wearing face masks.He spent most of July in an Atlanta-area hospital, Reuters reports.Just before announcing his diagnosis on July 2, Cain posted support for not mandating masks at a July 4 event at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota that Trump was planning to attend.“Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump. PEOPLE ARE FED UP!” he tweeted.The tweet has since been deleted.Someone deleted the following July 1 tweet from Herman Cain's account:“Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump. PEOPLE ARE FED UP!”— Pé (@4everNeverTrump) July 30, 2020Many Trump supporters have rejected the advice of public health experts and refused to wear face masks, which can prevent the spread of the virus, making their defiance a type of political statement.“We’re heartbroken, and the world is poorer: Herman Cain has gone to be with the Lord,” a statement on his website said.Messages of condolences poured in from prominent conservatives, while some liberals used the occasion to promote the wearing of masks.“Herman Cain will be missed, he was one of the greatest conservative voices of all time. I’ll never forget his smiling face,” Jenny Beth Martin, a co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, said on Twitter.Cain, who called himself an ABC man - “American Black Conservative” - had just started hosting a new show on Newsmax TV and hoped to play a role in the 2020 presidential election campaign, the statement said.He made his fortune as chief executive of Godfather’s Pizza and led some polls early in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, buoyed by his signature 9-9-9 proposal for a flat 9% corporate, income and sales tax.During the 2016 presidential campaign, he became a supporter of Trump, who last year planned to nominate Cain to a seat on the powerful US Federal Reserve Board, which sets benchmark interest rates.The potential nomination faced immediate resistance, even within the Republican Party, as critics expressed concerns about Trump loyalists serving on the traditionally nonpartisan board.Cain subsequently withdrew, citing what he said would be a decrease in influence and pay.Related...

Coworking and commercial real estate landlords in urban markets have an elevator problem, industry experts say. Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, few workers want to be crammed in elevators heading to the top floors with strangers and few employers want to expose them to such risk, the experts told Business Insider. Such concerns could give added impetus to allowing employees even after the pandemic passes to work from home or work from satellite offices in the suburbs, they said. The elevator worries could fade if the epidemic passes soon or could be accommodated by scheduling systems, they said. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Many commercials real estate companies — traditional landlords and coworking providers alike — have an elevator problem, industry experts say. No, the lifts aren't stuck between floors or forcing workers to wait interminable moments to get a ride to their floor. Instead, the problem has to do with the danger of crowding into elevators with strangers for long rides to the upper floors of high rises during a pandemic, the experts told Business Insider. And the problem could help spur some significant changes in the industry, they said. "People don't want to deal with elevators and tall buildings if they don't have to," said Tom Smith, a cofounder of Truss, an online office space marketplace. Employees aren't eager to pack into elevators while the coronavirus epidemic still rages, Smith and other experts said. And corporate tenants aren't eager to expose their employees to such situations. Some buildings have started to institute scheduling systems to spread elevator usage out over time, said Julie Whelan, head of occupier research for the Americas for real estate giant CBRE. But other buildings aren't well-equipped to do that, she said. "Elevators are absolutely a sticking point right now," Whelan said. The suburbs are looking more attractive Even before the COVID crisis, there was already growing demand for flexible office space outside of central business districts and closer to the less urban or even suburban places where many office workers live, Whelan and others said. Such offices are often in lower-rise buildings or on the lower floors of mid-rise towers, they said. The pandemic forced many corporations to allow their employees to work from home or other locations far from their primary offices. The general success of remote work during the crisis is likely to spur many companies to support employees working from home or from offices near their homes after the epidemic passes, the experts said. The elevator issue makes suburban office space even more attractive and is likely to add to pressure on employers to look for such accommodations, the experts said. Employees can access such offices by taking the stairs or just walking into them without having to go to a higher floor at all. They don't have to worry about cramming into an elevator or waiting for their appointed time to ride one. Being forced to wait for an elevator in a high-rise to "is going to frustrate people, because that adds to the commute time to your physical space," said Charlie Morris, leader of the US flexible office solutions practice at commercial real estate brokerage Avison Young. "Those people will most likely say, 'I'd rather just work from home or work from near home versus going and doing that.'" Unfortunately for many of the top coworking providers such as WeWork, their office spaces are primarily located in dense urban areas, not out in the suburbs. Such companies have already seen a sharp drop in occupancy at their mostly downtown towers, thanks to the pandemic. Memories are short To be sure, it's not certain that the elevator issue will have such long-lasting effects. Josh Freed, CEO of Proximity, a company that offers software and services that help coworking providers manage their spaces, is optimistic that scheduling systems for elevators will address the problem. People will just need to adjust their behavior and expectations, he said. "The elevator question is ... just going to end up being a solvable problem," Freed said. Others make historical comparisons. In the immediate wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, few people wanted to work in the top floors of skyscrapers. But office workers eventually returned to such spaces. If the US starts to get the pandemic under control soon or a vaccine is developed in the near-term, the concerns about elevators could likewise soon fade. People's memories are short," Whelan said. "And I think it really depends on how long we're stuck in this challenging time." Got a tip the coworking market?

Services are really old school if you think about it. We’ve progressed from early efforts around API-enabling applications, to object-oriented programming, to CORBA-based services, to SOA, to containers, to serverless functions, to today’s use of microservices. What’s common about the journey is the underlying belief that we can write something once and use it many times in many different applications or utilities, not to mention the ability to combine services so they become a new service unto itself. This is done through service decomposition. [ InfoWorld’s 2020 Technology of the Year Award winners: The best software development, cloud computing, data analytics, and machine learning products of the year ] The word “service” is overused today; in the cloud computing world it describes anything that is exposed by a public cloud provider, such as storage, compute, database, etc. Services, at least the way I understand them, are the capability of exposing both behavior and data bound to that behavior in ways that allow developers to be more productive.To read this article in full, please click here

But in addition to these delights, I’m finding myself knee-deep — again — in Dragon Age: Inquisition.After about a dozen hours (on my third character), I’ve been having plenty of fun (Inquisition is easily one of my favorite games of this generation), but my appetite hasn’t quite been satiated.My desire to go back to Dragon Age: Inquisition arose in part because I love that game, and in part because I was yearning for a very specific kind of single-player RPG experience; something epic and sprawling, where I could delve deep into a locale and its denizens, uncovering their stories and making decisions that might nudge their lives down one path or another.I’m going against my own instincts here: I’m always a fan of judging every game on its own merits.In this case, though, “Fallout in space” is entirely appropriate — and although it may sound dismissive, lazy, or reductive (it’s certainly not dismissive or reductive…), the shoe really fits.Let’s back-up for a moment and acknowledge why this matters so much: Fallout 4 was great, though controversial (many fans disliked the dramatically simplified dialogue system and the lack of nuance around skills and skill checks).

Is there still a market for a cheap tablet?For years, Amazon has argued that the answer is yes, with its consistent lineup of low-powered — and low priced — Fire tablets.The latest of these is the newly updated Fire HD 10, which looks to make the case that there’s room in the market for a larger tablet that isn’t an iPad.But does the $149 Fire HD 10 do enough to justify saving the money compared to Apple’s increasingly cheap entry-level iPads?With the exception of a new USB-C port (the first, and so far only, product Amazon has upgraded to the modern universal charging standard) and a few new colors, there are few external differences.And there’s “enhanced” Wi-Fi — in reality, a second antenna that allows the tablet to maintain a better signal regardless of whether you’re holding it in portrait or landscape mode.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Bay of Bengal, Northern Indian Ocean and found that Tropical Storm Matmo was positioned in the center of that body of water.Visible imagery from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite on Nov. 7 showed Matmo appeared somewhat elongated from north to south, because of a large band on thunderstorms extending north from the center of circulation.On Nov. 7 at 4 a.m. EST (0900 UTC), Matmo had maximum sustained winds near 55 knots (63 mph/102 kph).Matmo was located near latitude 15.0 degrees north and longitude 88.7 degrees east, about 353 nautical miles east-southeast of Visakhapatnam, India.The Joint Typhoon Warning Center expects Matmo will move northwest, then later, north.The storm will strengthen to 85 knots, but will weaken rapidly to dissipate on approach to the north coast of the Bay of Bengal.

The US government has said that US firms wanting to deal with Huawei could be granted licences to do so in the immediate future.American companies are currently banned from selling their products to the Chinese company after it was blacklisted on national security grounds earlier this year.This has meant Huawei has been unable to source key technologies and software, such as Google applications.Suppliers lobbied the US government to reconsider its approach, with several set to lose significant revenue streams if they can't supply Huawei.Washington relented and said some vendors would be able to do business with Huawei – so long as there was no security risk.However despite promises to expediate the process, none of the more than 200 applications submitted to the US government have been approved.

UPS is rolling along with its drone delivery program, working with partner CVS Pharmacy to deliver prescription drugs to customer doorsteps via its newly deployed commercial drones.UPS delivered medications to two paying customers on November 1, using the M2 drone system that the logistics company developed in partnership with Matternet.UPS got approval from the FAA to fly its fleet of commercial drones in service of customers at the beginning of October, and now it plans to iterate its drone delivery program “in the coming months,” with the aim of ensuring that it can deploy UAVs in a commercial capacity at increasing scale.It also launched ‘UPS Flight Forward,’ a dedicated division focused on autonomous drone delivery.For these early deliveries, drones were loaded with prescriptions filled by pharmacists at a CVS location in Cary, North Carolina.Once a UPS employee loaded the cargo onto the drones, they flew autonomously from the store location to nearby customer homes, dropping off the packages from a hover height of around 20 feet above these locations.
