Madrid opens new hospital, CDC study suggests COVID was in US earlier than thought

Bipartisan Senate group pitching $900 billion stimulus plan — 10:45 a.m.

A bipartisan group of senators is set to unveil a $908 billion stimulus proposal, according to people familiar with the plan, in an effort to break a monthslong impasse that’s now threatening to tip the economy back into contraction.

Neither Republican nor Democratic leadership has signed on to the plan, however, leaving it facing the same long odds that a failed bipartisan House proposal faced before Election Day. President-elect Joe Biden has so far backed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has pushed a $2.4 trillion bill.

Under the new proposed compromise, businesses would get a roughly $300 billion infusion for a version of the Paycheck Protection Program of forgivable loans, and state and local governments would get $240 billion, including money for schools, according to two people familiar with the proposal.

Without patients or staff, Madrid opens new $119M

Drone Photos and video from Township Commons waterfront park opens at Brooklyn Basin in Oakland

Perfect for these socially-distanced times, Oakland’s new outdoor waterfront living room opened at Brooklyn Basin on Wednesday.

Created from the remains of the 9th Avenue shipping terminal built in 1930, Township Commons park was designed by Oakland-based Einwiller Kuehl Landscape Architecture. Liz Einwiller, Sarah Kuehl and their team managed to transform a once-blighted industrial waterfront into a public outdoor space while keeping key pre-existing features such as the eastern-facing historic terminal front, gigantic metal structural trusses and the skeleton of the triangle-shaped terminus on the western end.

Some retail has opened in what’s left of the 20,0000-square-foot terminal building, including Rocky’s Market, The Kitchen at Rocky’s Market with outdoor dining, and California Canoe & Kayak.

An acre of wooden decking on the pier with bright yellow oversized wooden chaise lounge chairs and benches scattered throughout gives the feel of a boardwalk, and developers plan to install public art in the
