'New Normal' Arrives - Singapore Airlines Launches COVID-19 "Digital Health Passport" For Passengers As the world stumbles into 2021 in a matter of days, life, as we know it, will never be normal again, referring to good ole' days of the pre-pandemic. For months, readers may have heard us discuss "COVID passports," "immunity passports," or at least speak on the subject of those who don't get tested for COVID-19 or vaccinated will face travel restrictions. Well, from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact, Singapore Airlines this week is the first major carrier to introduce a digital health certificate to verify passengers' testing history and vaccination status. On Dec. 23, the new digital health verification process was rolled out for passengers traveling on flights operated by the carrier from Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, according to a Singapore Airlines press release . The airline explains passengers will take COVID-19 tests at local clinics in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur and be issued "digital or paper health certificates with a QR code." These forms of immunity passes will be checked by airport security and Singapore's immigration authority. "This is a faster and more secure way to validate a passenger's health credentials than the existing protocols, speeding up both the airport check-in process and the immigration entry process into Singapore.
US Requires All UK Travelers To Test Negative For COVID, CDC Rules 2020/12/25 14:00:00 Zero Hedge
US Requires All UK Travelers To Test Negative For COVID, CDC Rules In a late Christmas Eve surprise, the US government published a statement requiring airline passengers from Britain to test negative for COVID-19 three days before departure. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published the statement last night, indicating that the new rule requires all UK travelers to test negative on a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or antigen tests three days before departure for the US. All passengers must have " written documentation" of their test results. "If a passenger chooses not to take a test, the airline must deny boarding to the passenger," the CDC said in the statement. The announcement comes just days after a mutated coronavirus strain was discovered in the UK. Despite the world condemning President Trump for calling COVID-19 the "Chinese virus," anti-British sentiment has been developing by foreign media outlets, referring to the UK as " plague island ." But remember, if you speak about the "China virus," you are a racist…

Stock Market Today: White House Flip-Flop Sends Stocks Higher 2020/10/07 20:40:00 Kiplinger Washington Editors
If your neck is aching right now, it's likely from keeping up with the back-and-forth fate of COVID stimulus talks, which are changing literally every few hours at this point. We reported Tuesday that President Donald Trump directed his team to pull out of negotiations , effectively killing any hopes of stimulus before the Nov. 3 elections. An afternoon market drop and just a few hours of surprised conjecture later, Trump pulled a 180 , calling for more of a piecemeal strategy and saying he'd be ready to sign a standalone bill for stimulus checks "right now."

But they did show that many on the Fed believe it can't wage an economic fight against COVID alone. "It remains unclear as to whether the Fed will need to provide incrementally more monetary stimulus," says Bob Miller, BlackRock's head of Americas Fundamental Fixed Income. "What is clearer, however, is the Committee member's revealed preference that fiscal policy is the optimal response to generate more targeted stimulus from here.
