Trying to get an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine on the day that eligibility was expanded to new age groups in Washington state would be a familiar experience to anyone who’s tried to get a hot movie ticket, a cheap airfare or season tickets to Kraken hockey games. I’ve been through all of those trials, and my efforts to work through the online hiccups and fast-disappearing slots are likely to be replicated in the months ahead as efforts to quell the coronavirus pandemic continue to ramp up. Bottom line? Sharpen your searching skills, don’t wait for an invitation, and pursue… Read More
The incoming administration of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden is considering creating a White House position to focus on competition policy and issues relating to antitrust, two sources familiar with the situation said. The idea remains under consideration and the Biden White House may not ultimately move on this, one of the sources said. "It is yet to be determined if this will be more of a coordinator kind of a role or if this person will really sit at the White House," said one source.

It wasn’t in the form of his usual drawings, but Jim Carrey made sure he paid tribute to Trump’s four-year presidency in a unique way. The actor posted a tweet on Tuesday that included a video of Trump making a speech on CNBC. The short video plays in slow motion, with no words and only unruly bagpipe music in the background. It includes Carrey throwing a paper towel roll at the television and manages to slyly mock the outgoing leader in just 25 seconds. “How do you spell relief?” asks a caption that plays over the video, before following up with the answer: “I spell it…GOODBYE!” pic.twitter.com/22fbeUUyeo — Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) January 19, 2021 Carrey’s feelings toward Trump aren’t exactly a secret. But given how hard he throws that paper towel roll, we’re pretty sure he’s more than a little excited that as of tomorrow, Trump’s presidency will be over. Over the past four years, the actor-turned-artist has used his platform to spotlight his dislike of the 45th president by posting cartoons and drawings that depict Trump and his administration in not-so-flattering ways — from the mismanaged handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, to FOX News and their biased reporting, to mocking the pro-Trump rioters who recently stormed the Capitol. Also Read: Jim Carrey Needles Sen Kelly Loeffler Over COVID 'Blood Money' in New Cartoon While Carrey will probably continue making cartoons in the era of the new administration, let’s hope that (for as brilliant as the past four years of his work were), they’re a little more peaceful. And while we’re sure he never wants to draw anything relating to Trump again at this point, maybe we can look forward to a return of his famous drawings depending on what happens after Trump leaves the White House. Today is the last full day that Trump is in office. Tomorrow, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in as president and vice president of the United States.

Plans for a major West Coast liquified natural gas pipeline and export terminal hit a snag Tuesday with federal regulators after a years-long legal battle that has united tribes, environmentalists and a coalition of residents on Oregon's rural southern coast against the proposal. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ruled that energy company Pembina could not move forward with the proposal without a key clean water permit from the state of Oregon. It had appealed to the commission over the state's clean water permit, arguing that Oregon had waived its authority to issue a clean water certification for the project and therefore its denial of the permit was irrelevant.

Bob Iger’s Disney pay dropped by more than half in 2020, when he and current CEO Bob Chapek both went without bonuses amid the coronavirus pandemic. Iger also forewent his salary for a time, Chapek took a 50% pay reduction. Don’t feel too badly for Iger — he still made more than $20 million. (About $21 million, to be more exact.) In 2019, however, Iger hauled in $47.5 million. Chapek tallied $14.2 million in 2020. We do not have 2019 data for the new head honcho. Also Read: Bob Iger to Forgo Disney Salary During Coronavirus Shutdown, CEO Bob Chapek Takes 50% Pay Cut Iger ended up making just under $1.6 million in salary for fiscal 2020, down from the $3 million earned in 2019. His reported stock awards declined from more than $10 million in 2019 to less than $7 million in 2020. Iger’s options awards figure was fairly flat year to year at approximately $9.6 million. The huge change came under the heading non-equity incentive plan compensation, which essentially means monetary bonus. In 2019, Iger hauled in $21.75 million dollars there. It was a goose egg in 2020. There really weren’t any other material changes for Iger, but he made another $1.8 million under the pension/deferred compensation heading, and $1.2 million in catch-all category “All Other Compensation.” Chapek drew $1.8 million in salary, had $6.1 million in stock awards, $3.4 million in options and the same big, fat zero in the non-equity bonus column. He tacked on $2.7 million via a change in pension/deferred compensation and about $140,000 under what is essentially an “other” column.
