Some Tijuana locals say they're hopeful about a new Amazon warehouse that social media users called dystopian

Businessinsider - Sun, 10/10/2021 - 14:45
Visiting the community of Nueva Esperanza in Tijuana, Mexico next to Amazon's new fulfillment center.
  • Amazon's new warehouse in Tijuana, Mexico borders homes made of wood, tarps, and cardboard.
  • Some residents of the homes have reportedly said they are fearful Amazon will kick them out.
  • Insider went to Tijuana, where several residents said they were grateful for the new jobs.
  • See more stories on Insider's business page.

Amazon's newest fulfillment center in Tijuana, Mexico made headlines after it opened in September and put the neighboring community of Nueva Esperanza in the spotlight.

Photographer Omar Martinez captured photos of the Amazon facility, the first of its kind in Tijuana, that showed the brand-new facility standing feet away from a sprawling community of makeshift homes made of wood, tarps, and cardboard, where stray dogs lie in unpaved streets.

The photos were widely shared on social media, with users quick to condemn them as "dystopian" symbols of inequality, as Insider's Katie Canales reported. Some residents have expressed fears that Amazon could evict them, while the local government has praised Amazon's decision to move into the northwestern Mexican city.

Insider hired an interpreter and crossed the border to talk with residents living in the shadow of Amazon's new facility. Most of the eight people interviewed for this story said they felt hopeful about Amazon's arrival in Tijuana.

Locals praise Amazon's new jobs

"It's good for the community because it brings jobs," said Rosano Ochoa Builon, whose home neighbors the Amazon warehouse. "The factory is welcome."

She said she was surprised by the recent media attention on the facility, saying she's never seen anything like it in 20 years of living there.

The blue and gray Amazon factory is instantly recognizable when approaching by air or on land. It sits in a newly-developed industrial zone on the Tijuana River just a few miles from the US-Mexico border.

Amazon opened the facility in September and says it's creating 250 new jobs.

Lourdes Velazquez Toledo, who runs the eatery Comedor/Antojitos Mexicanos just outside the main gate to the industrial park, told Insider that she's seen an increase in customers since Amazon moved in.

"It's a better job than what they had before," Velazquez Toledo said of Amazon's new hires, speculating that local factories could lose workers to Amazon.

It's unclear what Amazon is paying workers at the Tijuana facility. Amazon declined Insider's request to confirm its wages, saying only that it pays "industry-competitive salaries."

Amazon pays workers a $15 minimum hourly wage in the US and at a nearby facility just over the border in San Diego, California. By comparison, Tijuana's 2021 minimum wage is around 26 pesos ($1.29) an hour - which is slightly higher than the minimum wage elsewhere in Mexico given the city's status as a special economic zone near the US border.

Locals reported hearing Amazon offering wages at the Mexican peso equivalent of $15 per hour for some positions.

Reuters reported in April that 15 contracted staffers at Amazon warehouses across Mexico earned roughly 25 pesos ($1.25) per hour - above the minimum wage in their area - plus bonuses. The report also included allegations of unfair mandatory overtime practices.

Without confirming any specifics, Amazon has managed to make an impression - at least among the locals interviewed by Insider - that its wages are competitive. Two employees of a nearby factory told Insider that they've heard that Amazon's jobs are "good work in a good company" and that they pay well, without knowing specifics on wages.

One resident of Nueva Esperanza, who asked not to be identified, said some of her coworkers quit their jobs to work at Amazon. She said they may have left because of the perception that Amazon is a "better company than ours" and had a nicer facility.

She also said she had seen social media posts that expressed concern over whether Amazon could destroy nearby homes because they were giving the e-commerce giant a "bad image."

Amazon's facility was built from the ground up in Tijuana.

Amazon declined to comment directly on the Nueva Esperanza settlement but told Insider: "We are in constant communication with the local government to find a way to generate a positive impact in the community."

"At Amazon, we are committed to the development of Mexico and the communities in which we operate, benefiting thousands of Mexican families, through the generation of direct and indirect jobs," Amazon said.

The Amazon fulfillment center will allow for same-day deliveries in Tijuana and next-day deliveries to nearby cities, a government press release said. Amazon is investing around $21 million into the ground-up construction of the 344,000-square-foot facility.

"Since our arrival in Mexico, Amazon has created more than 15,000 jobs throughout the country and now we are adding 250 in Tijuana, creating employment opportunities with industry-competitive compensation packages for all our employees, who enjoy benefits superior to the law, such as health insurance, life insurance, savings fund, and food vouchers," an Amazon spokesperson told Insider in a statement.

The community of Nueva Esperanza is a collection of makeshift homes and unpaved streets.

"Our wages and benefits strengthen local communities, and our investments help these areas to grow and to build better futures," Amazon said, citing 6.5 billion pesos of donations in Mexico that it says helped 30,000 families.

A woman who lives near the new warehouse told the Voice of San Diego that she's worried about being kicked out of her home.

"They have not threatened us directly with eviction but we have seen how other houses in the neighborhood have been sidelined to move or worse have destroyed their homes because they want to develop the land. I just don't want that to happen to us, " she said.

While none of the locals interviewed by Insider said they were fearful of being evicted by Amazon, they agreed Amazon has deep enough pockets to be able to resettle them.

"If Amazon wants to get rid of these houses, Amazon has the money to relocate these people," Trinidad Adel Calles Zazueta, a passerby near the warehouse, told Insider.

Flooded Thai restaurant becomes a hit with local diners, who dodge waves from passing boats while eating their meals

Businessinsider - Sun, 10/10/2021 - 14:38
Customers at the Chaopraya Antique Café.
  • A flooded restaurant in Thailand has become a popular dining spot, France24 reported.
  • Diners have been pictured enjoying their meals as river water splashes around their legs.
  • The owner dubbed the experience "hot-pot surfing."

A flooded restaurant in Thailand has become popular among locals, who are flocking to the waterlogged dining spot in droves.

Chao Phraya Antique Café, located in Nonthaburi City, just north of Bangkok, opened in February in a riverside location, AP reported. But a combination of recent tropical storms and heavy monsoon rains flooded the restaurant.

Diners didn't seem to mind and have been pictured reveling in the experience, as well as enjoying the thrill of waves created by passing boats.

"The concept has spread thanks to word of mouth from customers," the owner, Titiporn Jutimanon, told France24. Jutimanon dubbed the experience "hot-pot surfing."

Customers react to boats passing by.

Some staff choose to wear rubber boots while navigating the floodwaters carrying food, he added.

Videos of the restaurant have gone viral on social media. It's become such a hit that customers now have to make reservations if they want to visit.

"This is a great atmosphere. During this flood crisis, this has become the restaurant's signature attraction. So I wanted to challenge myself and try out this new experience," said one customer, according to AP.

The restaurant is Jutimanon's first venture. It previously suffered a slump after months of closure amid lockdown restrictions.

But the floodwaters have turned a crisis into an opportunity, according to Jutimanon. "It encourages us to keep the restaurant open and keep customers happy," he said, per AP.

Jutimanon noted, however, that if he has to close the restaurant down again, it wouldn't survive.

Back in 2018, Insider reported that Bangkok officials and organizations had mapped out an extensive water-management plan in an attempt to prevent future flooding.

Your favorite snacks, sweets, and spices may be hard to find as more shortages hit the US

Businessinsider - Sun, 10/10/2021 - 04:05
  • Spices, sweets, and snacks made by popular brands may be hard to come by as the US grapples with ongoing supply chain issues.
  • Kellogg's cereal, Ben & Jerry's ice cream, and McCormick spices are the latest items in short supply, according to CNN Business.
  • Everything from food, clothes, cars, and plastics is impacted by delays in transportation and manufacturing.

More items are going to be hard to find at grocery stores as shortages hit the US.

Spices, sweets, and snacks made by popular brands like certain Kellogg's cereal products, Sour Patch Kids candy, some Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors, McCormick gourmet spices, and Marie Callender's pot pies are expected to be hard to find as manufacturers are hit with delays, CNN Business reported.

Kellogg told at least four grocery distributors last month in an email that Pringles Snacks Stacks, Eggo pancakes, Rice Krispies Treats snacks, and some of the company's meat products "will remain below service expectations" through the end of the year, according to CNN Business.

Approximately 1,400 workers at Kellogg are also on strike, demanding better health care, retirement benefits, and holiday and vacation pay. The union indicated workers in these cities produce Rice Krispies, one of the items expected to be impacted by these shortages.

Kellogg is currently "implementing contingency plans to mitigate supply disruptions," Kris Bahner, a Kellogg spokesperson, told Insider in an email. "In instances where capacity is constrained, this means limiting orders over certain time periods while also encouraging full truck loads to ensure we service every community, customer and shopper the best we can."

Unilever, the manufacturer of Ben & Jerry's ice cream is prioritizing "top-selling items" while they battle a "limited ability to meet demand" caused by labor shortages, according to an email obtained by CNN that Unilever sent to a distributor. Unilever did not respond to Insider's request to comment before publishing.

McCormick's Gourmet is the only product line impacted by the ongoing packaging shortage the company is facing, Lori Robinson, a spokesperson for McCormick, said in an email to CNN Business. McCormick did not respond to Insider's request to comment on when shoppers can see its full range of products back on shelves.

Recently, shortages have been hitting stores across the US as companies are hit with supply chain disruptions in the manufacturing process. Everything from food, clothes, cars, paper, and plastics has been impacted by delays in transportation and manufacturing, while shortages in workers caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing strikes add to the disruptions.

Manufacturers have had to find creative solutions to battle these disruptions in the supply chain, such as renting their own container ships to sidestep delays in product shipments and empty shelves in their stores ahead of the holiday shopping season.

Unvaccinated Texas GOP gubernatorial candidate Allen West is ill with COVID-19 and medicating with unproven drugs

Businessinsider - Sun, 10/10/2021 - 03:50
Texas GOP gubernatorial candidate then a Florida US Representative listens during a Tea Party Town Hall meeting February 8, 2011 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
  • Texas GOP candidate for governor Allen West and his wife tested positive for COVID-19.
  • West said he might be hospitalized after his oxygen levels dropped and x-rays showed pneumonia.
  • West, who is unvaccinated, said he's taken unproven drugs hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.

Texas GOP gubernatorial candidate Allen West announced that he was sick with COVID-19 on Saturday.

West, a former US representative for Florida and retired Army lieutenant colonel, said he and his wife, Angela, both tested positive.

"I want to thank all of you for your prayers," West said in a post on his Facebook page.

He added that there was concern over his oxygen saturation levels, "which are at 89 and they should be at 95." He said x-rays show pneumonia but said it's not "serious."

"I am probably going to be admitted to the hospital," West said.

While his wife was vaccinated, West said he had not been.

"LTC West has publicly stated he supports individual choice and this is reflected in his own family," another announcement on his Facebook said.

The announcement said West had already taken "Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin protocols." There is no "protocol" for the use of these drugs, neither of which have been approved for the treatment of COVID-19 by the Food and Drug Administration.

In June 2020, the FDA revoked the emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of COVID-19 after studies found it was "unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses."

Earlier this summer, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a health advisory against the use of Ivermectin after calls to poison control centers rose from people self-medicating with the horse deworming drug. Insider's Andrea Michaelson reported that the drug has serious side effects and there hasn't been any strong or reliable evidence that it works at treating COVID-19.

The announcement also said West and his wife have been given monoclonal antibody infusion therapy and are being observed. The FDA has approved monoclonal antibody therapies for treating COVID-19. For the best outcome, the drug should be administered during the early stages of symptoms.

West spoke to a "packed house" two days before announcing he had COVID-19 at the Mission Generation Annual Gala Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas.

West's campaign did not respond to Insider's email request for comment at the time of publication.

Tucker Carlson cites a 'smart analysis' from the Unabomber's manifesto during an interview with Andrew Yang about America's two-party system

Businessinsider - Sun, 10/10/2021 - 03:43
In this April 4, 1996 file photo, Ted Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber, is flanked by federal agents as he is led to a car from the federal courthouse in Helena, Mont.
  • Andrew Yang announced on October 4 that he was leaving the Democratic Party to form a third party.
  • Tucker Carlson said Unabomber Ted Kaczynski wrote a "smart analysis" about the way systems work.
  • Yang's third party, the Forward Party, currently exists as a political action committee.

On Wednesday's episode of "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Fox News figurehead Tucker Carlson cited Unabomber Ted Kaczynski's manifesto during a discussion with former Democratic presidential and New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang on the country's two-party system.

Yang's appearance on the talk show came three days after he announced his departure from the Democratic Party to create a third party, the prospectively named "Forward Party." He told Carlson he wants to offset the two-party system, temper political polarization, and find a "middle ground in American politics."

In response, Carlson said he thought the Unabomber wrote a convincingly "smart analysis" about the way systems work despite being a bad person.

"[The Unabomber's] argument is that large organizations over time morph into purely self-preservation projects. A big system in the end protects itself. Our two-party system is certainly in that category," Carlson said.

-@brooklynmutt (@brooklynmutt) October 9, 2021

CNN anchor Jim Acosta questioned Yang on Saturday about his decision to appear on the Fox show, calling Carlson a "bad person" who "spouts off white nationalist talking points."

"As you know, Tucker commands a massive audience, and if you wanted to try to build a unifying popular movement that does call attention to the fact that our system's not working really for anyone, you have to, again, reach out," Yang responded. "That's what I was doing on that show."

In order to be recognized as a third party by the Federal Election Commission, the Forward Party will need to be registered state-by-state. It currently exists in the form of a political action committee.

A passenger is in custody after 'suspicious and erratic behavior' forced a plane to make an emergency landing at LaGuardia Airport

Businessinsider - Sun, 10/10/2021 - 03:16
New signage and access ramps guide travelers leaving LaGuardia Airport's new Terminal B, Wednesday, June 10, 2020 in New York. The new terminal will open Saturday, June 13.
  • A passenger was arrested after a "security incident" on a plane traveling from Indianapolis.
  • The plane had to make an emergency landing at LaGuardia Airport.
  • Authorities said the passenger had been displaying "suspicious and erratic behavior."

A flight from Indianapolis declared an emergency and landed at a New York City airport after a passenger began behaving erratically, officials said.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson told Insider a "security incident" had occurred on the flight, prompting it to land at LaGuardia Airport around 3 p.m. on Saturday. All passengers safely disembarked from the plane, the spokesperson said.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul tweeted that the pilot had opted to make an emergency landing after a "passenger disturbance" and that authorities are monitoring the situation.

"There is no reason to believe there is any danger to New Yorkers at this time," she said.

A Port Authority spokesperson told CNN the passenger had been displaying "suspicious and erratic behavior" and was reported by fellow passengers. The Port Authority did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

One passenger described a chaotic landing to The New York Times, telling the newspaper that passengers were panicking, getting pushed to the ground, and saying the man had "a suspicious device."

"The lady next to him was talking to him the whole time and telling him not to do it," 19-year-old Fawad Khuja told The Times. "I think the guy had gone crazy."

Another passenger told CNN that the moment the plane landed, the pilot and flight attendants began yelling, "Evacuate! Evacuate!"

LaGuardia Airport tweeted later on Saturday night that the airport is still "operating normally."

Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine is extremely helpful at preventing severe COVID-19 but it's hard to come by in the planet's poorer countries

Businessinsider - Sun, 10/10/2021 - 02:35
A container of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is seen at the United Memorial Medical Center on December 21, 2020 in Houston, Texas.
  • Around one million doses of Moderna's vaccines have been sent to low-income countries.
  • The company has been accused of focusing on profit, The New York Times reported.
  • Moderna told the Times it has limited production capacity and is fulfilling existing orders.

Poorer countries have received significantly fewer doses of Moderna's vaccine compared to wealthier nations, The New York Times reported.

Data from Airfinity, a firm that tracks vaccine shipments, showed only about a million of Moderna's vaccine doses have gone to low-income countries compared to 8.4 million doses of Pfizer's vaccine and around 25 million of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine.

The Times also reported that a few middle-income countries have had to pay more for the vaccine than the United States, while others like Botswana have made deals with Moderna but have yet to receive their doses, and others like Tunisia haven't even been able to get in touch with Moderna.

Moderna's vaccine appears to offer better protection compared to Pfizer's and Johnson & Johnson's over time, Insider previously reported. Data collected from hospitals in 20 cities showed that after four months, Moderna's vaccine was 92% effective at preventing hospitalizations. During the same period, Pfizer's effectiveness had dropped to 77% and Johnson & Johnson's to 68%.

In a press release, the company said: "From the beginning, our goal has been to help protect as many people as possible around the globe. To date, more than 250 million people have been vaccinated globally with the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. However, we recognize that access to vaccines continues to be a challenge in many parts of the world. So, we remain focused on implementing a comprehensive and always evolving strategy to ensure that low-income countries get access to our vaccine."

According to Times, executives said they're making as many doses as possible but their "production capacity is limited" and doses produced are going towards existing orders.

Dr. Tom Frieden, a former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told The Times the company is "behaving as if they have absolutely no responsibility beyond maximizing the return on investment."

In their press release, Moderna said there were five "pillars" to expanding vaccine access:

  • Not enforcing the patent on their vaccine
  • A May 2021 agreement with COVAX to provide 500 million doses
  • Working with governments who plan to donate vaccines to COVAX
  • building a state-of-the-art mRNA facility in Africa, but did not specify when
  • Investing to expand capacity to deliver an additional billion vaccines to low-income countries next year.

There's been a disparity overall in vaccination rates between wealthy countries and low-income countries. While more than 46% of the world's population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, that number is not evenly distributed, with only 2.5% of people in low-income countries getting at least one dose.

Countries like the United Arab Emirates, Portugal, and Singapore lead the way with more than 80% of their populations fully vaccinated. Less than 1% of the population in countries like South Sudan, Uganda, and Ethiopia are fully vaccinated.

Moderna did not respond to Insider's email request for comment at the time of publication.

Here are all the Walt Disney World rides included in Disney's new premium line-skipping feature

Businessinsider - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 23:11
  • Disney said in August it was introducing a new paid option to skip lines at its theme parks.
  • The company said its California and Orlando parks would retire the FastPass option, which allowed people to skip lines for free.
  • Disney's Genie service and the optional Genie+ add-on will launch October 19 at Walt Disney World Resort.

Disney-goers will soon be reaching further into their pockets if they want to skip the lines at their favorite rides.

Disney announced Friday it would launch its new Genie and Genie+ systems in Orlando on October 19 as part of Walt Disney World Resort's 50th anniversary celebration, including its Lightning Lane entrances.

The Genie service, which is built into Disney's apps, allows customers to personalize their theme park itineraries, like scheduling ride waits and organizing dining plans. Its optional Genie+ add-on includes Disney's Lightning Lanes, the new line-skipping feature that will cost an extra $15 for park goers.

Lightning Lanes replaces the popular (and free) FastPass system, which Disney retired earlier this year. Disney's amusement parks closed for months amidst the pandemic, reopening earlier this year at reduced capacity. The company's theme parks are still recovering to full profitability, per their latest earnings results.

The $15 cost covers line-skips for 40 rides across the Disney Orlando parks - part of their general "Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane Selections" category. Line-skipping for more popular rides like Space Mountain and Expedition Everest fall under "Individual Lightning Lane Selections," which customers will have to add "a la carte" one-at-a-time. These rides come with their own separate pricing, but it will be available for all guests, even if they do not purchase the Genie+ service.

Combining the basic Genie+ plan with the a la carte options, park goers could be paying up to $40 on top of their general one-day one-park ticket price, which ranges between $109 and $159 for a single person depending on the day, the New York Times calculated.
