The success of Poland's Iga Swiatek has helped bring a WTA women's tournament back to the country's coast after an absence of more than 10 years and local fans will get the chance to see her play, the organisers said on Monday. Teenager Swiatek crushed American Sofia Kenin 6-4 6-1 to triumph at the rescheduled French Open in October and became Poland's first Grand Slam singles champion. The 19-year-old was also the youngest woman to win the title since Monica Seles in 1992, the first Polish woman to reach the Roland Garros final in 81 years and the first at any major since Agnieszka Radwanska at Wimbledon in 2012.

First Liberty Institute submits friend-of-the-court brief in key cases challenging California’s blanket private donor records reporting requirementWASHINGTON, March 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Liberty Institute representing Citizen Power Initiatives for China (“Citizen Power”) today filed a friend-of-the-court brief at the Supreme Court of the United States in cases regarding donor privacy, Americans For Prosperity v. Becerra and Thomas More Law Center v. Becerra. Citizen Power is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing a peaceful transition to democracy in China and has donors who face reprisals by the Chinese government and those acting on its behalf. You can read the brief here. “For our client and its supporters, maintaining privacy is a matter of life and death,” said Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO, and Chief Counsel for First Liberty Institute. “In today’s cancel culture, people know it’s unwise to trust our own government with their private information, let alone China. It is vital that the Justices protect donors’ privacy to shield them from threats, harassment, and worse.” Citizen Power’s founder and president, Dr. Yang Jianli, narrowly escaped capture as he witnessed the Tiananmen Square massacre. Following his return to China, he was imprisoned until diplomatic efforts by the international community — including the United States — procured his release. Immediately following his return to the United States, he formed Citizen Power Initiatives, which has seen at least one of its major donors imprisoned in China. California requires all charitable organizations that solicit contributions within the state to register and file periodic reports with its Attorney General, including a list of the names and addresses of all of their major donors. California law imposes no civil or criminal penalties for disclosure of these records. The district court also found that California’s blanket disclosure system has resulted in the exposure of around 1,800 confidential donor lists and that even during some of the litigation, California’s website rendered vulnerable to unsophisticated hackers every confidential document in the registry. According to the brief, “The liberties that the First Amendment expressly guarantees depend on a vigorous protection of the auxiliary freedom of association. Blanket donor-disclosure regimes like California’s create an intolerable risk of exposure and thus severely abridge that freedom. Exposure of a group’s members and donors can subject them to significant reprisals by the public and therefore dissuade further membership and donations — a fact that this Court has acknowledged when marking the freedom of association’s contours.” About First Liberty Institute First Liberty Institute is a non-profit public interest law firm and the largest legal organization in the nation dedicated exclusively to defending religious freedom for all Americans.

Increased Delivery, Pickup and Amazon’s Cashier-less ‘Go’ Stores Are Part of the Future Mitch Gould, the founder of NPI and IHM, is a third-generation retail distribution and manufacturing professional. Gould developed the "Evolution of Distribution" platform, which provides domestic and international product manufacturers with the sales, marketing, and product distribution expertise required to succeed in the world's largest market -- the United States. Gould, known as a global marketing guru, also has represented icons from the sports and entertainment worlds such as Steven Seagal, Hulk Hogan, Ronnie Coleman, Roberto Clemente Jr., Chuck Liddell, and Wayne Gretzky. BOCA RATON, FL, March 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The pandemic certainly caused upheaval in the retail industry this past year. "Consumer shopping habits have changed,” said Mitch Gould, CEO and founder of Nutritional Products International, which is based in Boca Raton, FL. “Shopping online increased many-fold during the COVID-19 health crisis, but what is even more significant is that consumers got used to buying items online that they had never bought digitally before.” Gould, whose company, NPI, works with health and wellness brands expand into the U.S. consumer market, keeps abreast of retail trends. “Retail is my business,” Gould said. “It is not surprising that sales in household cleaners, soap, and hair color increased during the pandemic. “Vitamins and supplements also made it to the top of the list,” Gould said, adding that the health crisis forced many people to become more health-conscious. “Although sales of health and wellness products skyrocketed during the early months of the pandemic, J.P. Morgan reported that sales in the third quarter of last year still increased dramatically.” Gould said online shopping now accounts for 16.1 percent of all sales in the U.S., up from 11.8 percent in the first quarter of last year. “With more than 100 million people being vaccinated by Spring, you will see increased shopping at brick-and-mortar retail stores, but people have discovered the convenience of one-click shopping. It is addicting.” Gould said Supermarket News just reported that delivery and pickup sales increased dramatically in January. “The Brick Meets Click” by Mercatus survey suggests the regional grocers will ‘need to enhance the digital experience’ to remain competitive,'” he said. Although the Mercatus survey indicates some consumers may not continue to use delivery or pickup from local stores again, Gould said retailers will need to continually innovate their online experience to keep their customers from moving elsewhere. “Retailers, especially regional outlets, have to improve their online shopping experience,” Gould said. “Even if retailers lose some online shoppers, the trend toward digital purchases should continue as it has for the past several years.” Another retail trend that will reverberate throughout the industry is the cashier-less shopping experience. “Amazon Go grocery stores use its ‘Just Walk Out’ technology in its cashier-less stores, and people are looking forward to trying it out,” Gould said. “Imagine never having to wait in line again. Amazon’s technology goes far beyond self-checkout.” Gould’s entire career has been in retail Gould has helped bring 100s, if not 1,000s, of health and wellness products to the American consumer throughout the years. To streamline U.S. expansion, the third-generation retail professional developed his “Evolution of Distribution” platform. NPI is a turnkey operation for domestic and international health and wellness brands seeking to enter the U.S. market or expand their presence here. “I talk weekly to CEOs from businesses throughout the world. They are eager to conquer the American market,” Gould said. To help these health and wellness brands expand their retail network, Gould has put together what NPI calls the. “Powerhouse Trifecta.” Gould, along with NPI president Jeff Fernandez, and Kenneth E. Collins, NPI’s executive vice president, have almost 100 years of combined retail experience. “Ken and I placed more than 150 products onto the new virtual shelves of Amazon’s health and well category in the early 2000s,” Gould said. “We met Jeff when he was a buyer on the team Amazon assembled to create its new category, which today probably clears billions of dollars for the online giant.” Gould said companies have to constantly innovate to stay competitive in the retail segment. “At NPI, we monitor current retail and future trends to make sure our clients retain a competitive advantage.” For more information, visit Nutritional Products International online.

The Energy Department wants the nonprofit that sets model codes to justify its industry-backed bid to block cities from adopting more energy-efficient rules.
A senior World Health Organization official said Monday it was “premature” and “unrealistic” to think the pandemic might be stopped by the end of the year, but that the recent arrival of effective vaccines could at least help dramatically reduce hospitalizations and death. The world’s singular focus right now should be to keep transmission of COVID-19 as low as possible, said Dr. Michael Ryan, director of WHO's emergencies program. “If we’re smart, we can finish with the hospitalizations and the deaths and the tragedy associated with this pandemic” by the end of the year, he said at media briefing.
