"A. From wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Thursday October I. It said that ninety percent of Americans live within ten miles of a Walmart. Now, if that's the case, why don't more people shop for clothes at the world's biggest retailer? Well, that's a question that Walmart's been trying to answer for years with limited success fifteen years ago. The company introduced a private label line and advertised in none other than vogue anybody remember that. No No. Thought. So well in the last few years Walmart has I'd competitor target with some Degree of envy as target has successfully launched several private label brands of Apparel Walmart however just hasn't been able to get out of the gate with its own apparel lines a few years ago it bought menswear brand bonobos, mud cloth, and plus sized women's wear brand eloquent since then it's sold MoD cloth and shrunk bonobos recording to retail reporter Daphne. Howland in two thousand eighteen. It also launched four private label lines and called itself a quote destination for apparel. While some of those private labels are doing well according to Ad Week for many shoppers that map lead elsewhere to this day most younger shoppers wooden named. Walmart.

And it's a big one. If it can out design target but targeted won't be easy to beat. It's apparel sales actually sank over the last few months in a week back to school shopping season. Could make that worse Wall Street Journal reporter Aaron Back Rights. But in both apparel and home target enjoys a reputation that Walmart has yet to achieve its private label brands are known for quality and design savvy back rights and that reputation sets it apart from dying department stores providing what back calls a moat against cutthroat competition from desperate retailers.

of a loophole in the cure's act legislation transformers tribal governments to sue the trump administration to ensure that these funds were allocated correctly the trump administration has sided with the Alaska native corporations and the treasury department is preserving cares funding for them until the court case is resolved the Senate returned to Washington this week but you'd all doesn't

important that we work hand in hand with the state on guidelines to re open but we need to do so responsibly and what that means is the governor and his providing the guidelines for the state as a whole but the reason why our counties have control over whether or not we implement some of those suggestions has everything to do with what's happening with the fax with the numbers how many more cases how many more deaths what's happening on the ground in our cities there have been one thousand seven hundred fifty four confirmed cases of covert nineteen in San Francisco I'm thirty one deaths and there's been nine thousand one hundred and eighteen cases of corona virus and three hundred and thirty three deaths in the bay area according to the San Francisco Chronicle in all California has

economic release something Democrats are working on in a new coronavirus relief bill in the meantime California has already had to borrow money from the federal government to help pay for surging unemployment claims but it's not stopping him from providing support to Californians he says he signed an executive order to expand workers compensation benefits to all sectors of the economy during

three have died Democrats in both houses of Congress have announced legislation they say would prevent the trump administration from bailing out the fossil fuel industry using funds from the two trillion dollar corona virus relief cares act the lawmakers say the funding is intended to support struggling businesses during the corona virus pandemic and should not be redirected to the fossil fuel industry down here with the reports north cost representative Jared Huffman is a sponsor of legislation that would prevent banks which are receiving federal cares act funds from becoming owners of distressed oil and gas assets it would also impose a moratorium on new fossil fuel lease sales until the covert nineteen crisis is over Huffman says the trump administration is already moving forward to help its friends in the fossil fuel industry it's difficult enough dealing with a global pandemic that has been made catastrophic by the incompetence and ineptitude of this administration the only thing worse is the fact that the one thing that this administration seems to be really good at which is dolling out favors for oil and gas and mining interests it's it's proceeding at full pace with that agenda we know that in under the cover this pandemic the oil and gas industry the richest industry in the history of the world has been pushing for a bailout M. for merry at handouts from this administration Hoffman says north American oil and pipeline companies have more than two hundred billion dollars in debt that will mature in the next four years the measure would prohibit banks benefiting from the federal corona virus relief program for making new equity investments in fossil fuel companies it would also bar them from using provisions of the federal law for the fossil fuel industry such as loan guarantees New Mexico congresswoman deb Haaland says native Americans in regions with fossil fuel production already suffer from pre existing health conditions which puts them more at risk from covert nineteen she backs the provision of the proposed legislation that would impose a moratorium on new fossil fuel leases until after the corona virus emergency is over last week the bureau of land management announced it will hold a series of virtual public meetings on the resource management plan for the area around Chaco canyon which is my ancestral homeland the people who will be most impacted by more oil and gas drilling in that area members of the Navajo Nation and keep quiet but people like me are the hardest hit by the pandemic partly due to breach that pre existing respiratory conditions caused by oil and gas extraction and are among the least digitally connected the measure would also reiterate that private oil cannot be stored in the strategic petroleum reserve and would cap the reserves at its current physical limit that's important as the world is awash with extra oil as a result of the global economic shutdown the lawmakers say their bill would eliminate the authority of the interior secretary to eliminate or reduce oil rates for fossil fuel leases on federal lands and waters dozens of environmental groups have challenged the
