the 10 best movies released since theaters were shuttered

Believe it or not, a lot of new films have been released since movie theaters were shuttered by the coronavirus pandemic — and a lot of good films. They have arrived by streaming service, cable television, on-demand, drive-in and even Instagram. But the movies have kept coming. Here are 10 favorites of AP Film Writers Jake Coyle and Lindsey Bahr: — “DRIVEWAYS”: A gracefully understated film about about next-door neighbors — one an eight-year-old boy (Lucas Jaye), the other a retired Korean veteran (Brian Dennehy, in one of his last performances) — who become unlikely friends, Andrew Ahn’s exquisitely gentle little movie has felt blessedly nourishing this spring. The tale might be sentimental, but Ahn’s touch is true, and the performances of the three leads (including Hong Chau, as the boy’s mother)…

farm-to-table dining takes on new meaning amid pandemic

Eric Pray is used to shipping seafood all over the country. But since the coronavirus took hold, he has shifted his focus closer to home — selling lobsters from a homemade tank in his garage. Pray, of Portland, Maine, is one of hundreds of fishermen, farmers and food producers who have shifted to a direct-to-consumer model amid the virus outbreak. The pandemic has stressed and sometimes disrupted supply chains, shuttered restaurants and changed the way consumers buy food, leaving some producers scrambling for a new way to reach their customers. The farm-to-table movement in the United States has grown in recent years, as consumers have increasingly demanded locally sourced food. But in the past several weeks, the movement has grown out of necessity because some producers can’t rely on the complex web…

as business trickles back, hotels compete on cleanliness

Marriott, Hilton and other big hotel companies are used to competing on price or perks. Now they are competing on cleanliness. From masked clerks at the front desk to shuttered buffets, hotels are making visible changes in the wake of the pandemic. Signage will tout new cleaning regimens: Red Roof Inns promise “RediClean,” while Hilton boasts of “CleanStay with Lysol.” Hotels are still mostly empty; in the U.S., occupancy stood at 37% the week ending May 30, down 43% from the same period a year ago, according to STR, a data and consulting firm. But leisure travel is starting to pick up, and hotels see cleaning standards as a way to soothe jittery guests — and possibly win back business from rivals like home-sharing companies like Airbnb. “I think, more than ever, customers…

starbucks takes $3 billion hit to revenue during pandemic

Starbucks expects to lose more than $3 billion in revenue in its fiscal third quarter due to the new coronavirus, but said the disruption to its business should subside through the rest of the year. “The Starbucks brand is resilient, customer affinity is strong and we believe the most difficult period is now behind us,” Starbucks President and CEO Kevin Johnson said in an open letter. The Seattle-based coffee giant said in a regulatory filing Wednesday that the virus outbreak will also slash its operating income between $2 billion and $2.2. billion for the quarter, which ends June 28. Starbucks plans to report its third quarter results on July 28. Starbucks was forced to close its stores to customers at the height of the pandemic but continued to operate drive thru and pickup…

game on: apple’s plans for live sports dominance

As Apple ramps up work on innovative, immersive sports viewing technology and throws a punch at Amazon by pilfering one of its executives to head up a new sports division, it’s clear that the company is game set and match. Let’s explore Apple’s uphill battle to dominance in the field, analyzing where live sports could fit into its increasingly bloated service offering. BRINGING SPORT TO APPLE TV+ When Apple announced its TV+ streaming service last year, it was the first of four major launches in a twelve-month period. As cord-cutting and evolving consumer viewing habits hit cable networks and studios, every man and his dog decided it was time to launch their own Netflix rival - to varying degrees of success. Though Apple undoubtedly has the ecosystem, user base, and capital to…

confusion reigns as un scrambles mask, virus spread advice

It’s an issue that’s been argued about for months, both by experts and by people strolling through parks all over the world: Can people who don’t feel sick spread the coronavirus, and if so should we all be wearing masks to stop it? Even the World Health Organization can’t seem to get it straight. On Tuesday the U.N. health agency scrambled to explain seemingly contradictory comments it has made in recent days about the two related issues. The confusion and mixed messages only makes controlling the pandemic that much more difficult, experts say. “If you are giving them confusing messages or they’re not convinced about why they should do something, like wear masks, they will just ignore you,” said Ivo Vlaev, a professor of behavioral sciences at the University of Warwick. The communications debacle…
