China has surpassed the US in movie ticket sales for the first time ever, making it the world’s biggest box office, according to new data. Year-to-date movie ticket sales in China climbed to $1.99 billion on Sunday, topping the US total of $1.94 billion, according to Asian film consultancy data Artisan Gateway. The gap is expected to widen by year’s end, as major Hollywood movie studios have pulled their big budget holiday releases, such as the new James Bond flick “No Time to Die” and the superhero flick “Black Widow,” starring Scarlett Johansson. The US is still struggling to manage the spread of the coronavirus, causing movie theaters to operate at limited capacity and in some states, not at all. Meanwhile, China, which was the first country to be hit by the virus, has reportedly contained its contagion and has seen a rebound in moviegoing. China’s tens of thousands of movie houses are operating at 75 percent capacity. During the recent weeklong National Day holiday, running Oct. 1 to Oct. 8, China’s cinemas sold a whopping $586 million worth of tickets, the report said. According to ticket sales tracker Box Office Mojo, for the non-holiday weekend of Oct. 9- 11,
CVS Health said Monday it is hiring 15,000 people to administer COVID-19 tests and flu vaccinations as it prepares for an expected surge in cases this fall and winter. More than 10,000 of the new hires will be licensed pharmacy technicians who can give COVID-19 tests — and who the company hopes will also be authorized to administer vaccinations. “Additional team members typically are needed every flu season,” head of human resources Lisa Bisaccia said in a statement. “However, we’re estimating a much greater need for trained pharmacy technicians this year given the continued presence of COVID-19 in our communities.” Some 4,000 CVS drive-throughs also serve as a COVID-19 testing sites across the country. Many of these jobs are temporary, the company said and include pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants and distribution center employees. In March, at the onset of the pandemic, the company announced plans to hire 50,000 employees in what it described as “the most ambitious hiring drive in the company’s history.” The 15,000 new hires are in addition to those previously announced positions, the company said. CVS has been pushing state legislatures to allow licensed pharmacy technicians to give vaccinations. Only six states, Idaho, Michigan, Nevada, Rhode Island,
RIYADH (REUTERS) - Saudi Arabia's biggest supermarket chains this week joined a growing boycott of Turkish imports proposed by business leaders and Saudis on social media, as political tensions spilled into trade between the two regional powers. Turkey and Saudi Arabia have been at loggerheads since the 2011 "Arab Spring" over Ankara's support for Islamist political groups. The 2018 murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom's Istanbul consulate escalated tensions sharply. Othaim Markets, Danube Supermarkets, Tamimi Markets and Panda Retail Company issued statements announcing they would stop carrying Turkish goods once existing stocks are sold off.
