Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho says the return of supporters to grounds from next week will not make a positive impact economically for clubs. Premier League clubs have argued that admitting such a low number of supporters will cost them money, and the top-flight is continuing to pressure the Government to lay out a roadmap for the return of fans in numbers significant enough to stop them from haemorrhaging funds. On Monday, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy robustly backed the return of supporters to grounds after the club announced losses of £63.9million for the year ending June 30, 2020.
Public sector pay will be frozen but low-paid and NHS workers will still get raises, the chancellor says.

The government will introduce a £7.1 billion national home building fund, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has revealed in the latest spending review. The investment is to support new housing from 2021-22 and the review provides nearly £20 billion in multi-year capital investment to underpin the government’s long-term housing strategy. As part of the £7.1 billion fund, £100m of funding will be provided for brownfield sites, supporting house building on land that may be less attractive such as ex-industrial sites.
WASHINGTON — Orders to U.S. factories for big-ticket manufactured goods showed a modest gain in October but much of the strength came from a big jump in orders for military equipment. Orders for durable goods, items expected to last at least three years, rose a better-than-expected 1.3% in October and that gain followed an upwardly revised 2.1% increase in September. A category that tracks business investment plans rose 0.7% in October after a 1.9% increase in September. The strength in October came primarily from the volatile category of defence orders, with demand for military aircraft surging by 79.1%. Orders for commercial aircraft, which have been battered by the sharp fall in air travel due to the coronavirus, rose 38.8%, but that comes after months of weakness. Economists are hopeful that aircraft demand will keep rising with Boeing finally receiving safety approvals for its 737 Max, which had been grounded after two fatal crashes. Overall, transportation orders rose a modest 1.2% as the sector was held back by a 3.2% drop in orders for motor vehicles and parts. Economists believe that that U.S. factories face significant headwinds, including a sharp rise in coronavirus cases that could throttle demand in coming months. “The manufacturing sector remains exposed to surging virus cases that could disrupt supply chains, weigh on demand and slow the pace of the rebound going forward,” said Rubeela Farooqi, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics.

Brandon Sun readers are requesting specific questions be asked of health officials related to COVID-19. QUESTION: Regarding the transfer of COVID patients to Brandon Regional Health Centre from outside of Prairie Mountain Health — the number listed on the website of patients in hospital in Prairie Mountain Health (PMH) region only lists residents of PMH, not patients brought in from other regions. It doesn’t give an accurate picture of what’s going on at our hospital. SHARED HEALTH SPOKESPERSON: Individual COVID cases are attributed to the health region where a person resides. Altering that info if individuals required care at a hospital outside of their "home" region would create confusion. For the purposes of data collection, it is more meaningful to know where an individual likely transmitted the virus than where they received care. The Brandon Regional Health Centre is one of four hospitals in the province to have a critical care (ICU) department. Determining where a critically ill or injured patient should receive care is based on a number of factors relating to the individual’s case, including but not limited to where they are currently located, whether they’ve been stabilized, whether they need specialized care and where there are open beds in the system. As a result, it is not unusual for Brandon’s ICU to have patients who don’t live in the Prairie Mountain Health region. For the same reason, it is also not unusual for individuals living in the PMH region to be ICU patients at one of Winnipeg’s three critical care units. This is a provincial, not a regional, program. QUESTION: Is Manitoba making use of wastewater COVID epidemiological analysis, such as in Saskatoon or other cities in Canada? University of Saskatchewan toxicologist Dr. Markus Brinkmann is quoted as saying that since feces from infected people sheds particles of the virus, they can use a special model to roughly estimate how many cases may be in the community, potentially before those people have symptoms. DR. BRENT ROUSSIN (CHIEF PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICER): This is something that’s being worked on. We don’t have it applied routinely, right now. This is really something that may be beneficial when we don’t have a lot of transmission of the virus as an early warning. It wouldn’t help us right now, say testing in Winnipeg. We know there’s a high level of transmission going on. As we get the numbers down, if we have, say, remote communities or other communities that really have no activity, this might give us an early warning indicator that something is starting to happen there. So there are uses for it. But right now, we don’t have a routine use for it here in Manitoba.Michèle LeTourneau, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, Brandon Sun

Arianna O'Dell, a 30-year-old entrepreneur and songwriter based in New York City, had a tumultuous four-year journey in cryptocurrency before selling her investments in February. O'Dell may not have made optimal decisions about when to buy or sell, and missed out on the recent rally - but says she doesn't regret that. Investing $2,705 worth of proceeds into her business was better than enduring the stress of daily fluctuations, even though the price has since doubled, she said.
