Democratic election sweep win would add 7 million more jobs than a GOP one, analysis finds

A Democratic sweep this election cycle would bring a faster recovery to the job market than a Republican one, according to a new analysis, adding millions of more jobs, shrinking the unemployment rate faster, and boosting the number of workers in the labor force higher.

Under a scenario where Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden wins the presidency and both the Senate and the House of Representatives are controlled by Democrats, 18.6 million jobs would be added by 2024, according to the analysis from Moody’s Analytics. 

Under the opposite scenario where President Donald Trump wins a second term and Republicans control both chambers of Congress, 11.2 million jobs would be created.

“Biden would implement much more aggressive fiscal support to the economy early on in his administration,” Mark Zandi, Moody’s Analytics chief economist who co-authored the report told Yahoo Money. “That provides a lot of juice to the economy early on

Pirlo gets coaching career off to sparkling start in 3-0 win

MILAN (AP) – Andrea Pirlo got his coaching career off to a winning start as Juventus beat Sampdoria 3-0 in Serie A on Sunday.

Dejan Kulusevski scored early in his debut and second-half goals from Leonardo Bonucci and Cristiano Ronaldo sealed the result on a day which saw fans return to Serie A stadiums.

“They are great players and I am so confident because I see every day quality players who are working toward the team in order to improve,” Pirlo said.

“Of course, we have just started and we have time to improve, but the commitment of the players to give it all to the team is there and that gives me a lot of comfort.”

It was a positive day for debutants as Weston McKennie – the first American to play for Juventus – had a hand in Bonucci’s goal and also sparked a move which led to

Win $40K to Use for Education Savings, School Expenses or Student Loans in Sootchy’s Sweepstakes

An immigrant from Lagos, Nigeria, Adefeso worked three jobs to self-fund his Harvard MBA, yet still had significant loans to repay. His passion to make college debt-free, especially for underserved students, inspired him to develop Sootchy—an AI-powered digital platform to help families maximize 529 plans to pay education costs from K-12 to college.

To highlight his mission and the importance of diversity and inclusion in tech, Adefeso formally announced the $40K sweepstakes and the upcoming launch of Sootchy during TechCrunch Disrupt 2020.  He sponsored the inaugural Include Reception at the conference, the first Include event as TechCrunch launches the program to promote diversity in the tech world.

During the virtual Include Reception, Adefeso spoke to the existing disparity in wealth, and lack of education funds, for underserved communities, and led a roundtable discussion on diversity in the tech industry.

With the Sootchy Sweepstakes, Adefeso hopes to make a lasting

TikTok proposes to add new U.S. headquarters and 20,000 jobs to win over Trump

“I want to be careful what I say, but I will confirm we did get a proposal over the weekend that includes Oracle as the trusted technology partner, with Oracle making many representations for national security issues,” Mnuchin said. “There’s also a commitment to create TikTok Global as a U.S. headquartered company with 20,000 new jobs.”

While Mnuchin didn’t go into detail about the proposal, people familiar with the talks who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss them candidly told The Post that the proposed arrangement would allow its parent company, ByteDance, to retain ownership but outsource management of data to Oracle’s cloud-computing operations. If a deal along that structure wins administration approval, it would represent a significant step back from what the president demanded when he first threatened to ban the app in the United States in July. At the time, Trump pushed to force the sale

GUEST VIEW: Biden won’t win votes by threatening swing state jobs

It sometimes seems as if former Vice President Biden is hell bent on losing this November.

Biden’s clean energy plan calls for banning new oil and gas permits on public lands and waters. While that position might appeal to environmentalists, it won’t win over the swing state voters who rely on America’s oil and natural gas industry for affordable energy and good jobs.

The natural gas and oil industry supports more than 10 million high-paying jobs across the nation. Many of these jobs are located in swing states like Pennsylvania, Florida, and Michigan, all of which Democrats lost in 2016. The industry supports more than 12 percent of jobs in Texas, another key state Democrats want to carry in 2020.

The industry is projected to support an additional 1.9 million American jobs by 2035. Nearly 60 percent of those positions will go to blue-collar workers, a group that supported President

Tesla is planning to export its Made-in-China electric cars to Asia-Pacific markets, a move seen as a pushback to President Donald Trump’s efforts to bring back manufacturing jobs to America, analysts said.

The carmaker will ship Model 3s produced at its US$2 billion Gigafactory outside Shanghai to reduce costs and shorten the delivery time to its customers in Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, Bloomberg reported earlier on Friday, citing people familiar with the decision.

The move suggests Elon Musk will need to ramp up Tesla’s production capacity to meet demand around the region, and stay ahead of a slew of domestic electric-vehicle producers like Nio and Xpeng. These export markets are currently supplied by Tesla’s main factory in Fremont, California.

LOUISVILLE — Micale Cunningham passed for a career-high 343 yards and accounted for four touchdowns as Louisville cruised to a 35-21 win over Western Kentucky on Saturday night.

Cunningham completed 19 of 34 passes with touchdowns of 28, 2 and 70 yards to surpass his previous yardage best of 288 last season against Boston College. The junior quarterback also rushed for a 14-yard touchdown.

A fumbled punt snap on Louisville’s opening possession resulted in Gaej Walker’s 1-yard TD run for WKU. Louisville regrouped to score on four of its next five drives, with Cunningham finding tight end Ean Pfeifer with his first TD pass that tied the game at 7-7.

A Democratic Win Could Mean Big Changes For Education

Tonight, as Joe Biden accepts the Democratic nomination, his party is well-positioned for the fall. Indeed, it’s possible—even likely—that Democrats will claim unified control of the White House and Congress. As the Democratic National Convention wraps, it’s a good time to take a look at just what a big Democratic win might mean for education.

It’s true that Joe Biden was the most centrist top-tier candidate in the 2020 Democratic field and has spent nearly half a century as a fixture of the party’s moderate wing. But it’s also the case that he’s sketched the most expansive, ambitious federal education agenda in the nation’s history.

And big change may be uniquely possible next year for two reasons. The first is Democratic talk of abolishing the Senate filibuster, allowing a bare Senate majority to pass major legislation. It’s
