Mask Mandates

Reversing course, Governor Kemp signed an executive order giving cities and counties the power to enact mask mandates in their communities. However, there are regulations that need to met in order to do so, and restaurants and other businesses can decide not to enforce the mandate. And here are three other important things you should know: 1. Memes are hot right now. At least Warner Music Group thinks they are enough to spend large on them. The third largest record company in the world spent around $85 million to acquire IMGN Media and with it, one of the internet's most popular meme accounts. "The deal was technically for IMGN Media, a network of popular esports, comedy, and ASMR accounts. But the biggest IMGN prize is Daquan, an Instagram account followed by Drake, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, and 15m+ others. An anonymous high schooler started it in 2014 -- then built it into a media empire." The Hustle 2. Shipping costs are going. Peak shipping rates for FedEx are on the rise, and UPS and USPS will follow suit in anticipation for a busy winter season. "Retailers can choose between raising their product prices, raising shipping fees, or eating the costs. This could hurt small businesses the most: when mom and pop shops raise their prices, shoppers defect to Amazon. ... There’s a loophole. Store deliveries aren’t subjected to the residential fees, so retailers may want to dress up their buy online, pick up in-store experiences." Retail Brew 3. DoorDash getting their grocery carts ready. The food delivery app has slowly expanded its offerings in the face of the pandemic, and now is expanding into the grocery game. "... the company announced that it’s adding on-demand grocery delivery to its app. More than 10,000 items will be available for delivery in under an hour, and 75 million people in the US should have access to the service." Engadget Springbot Shoutouts
