New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo disclosed Monday that he was paid a $3.1 million advance to write his COVID-19 leadership book last year and under his publishing contract will make another $2 million on the memoir over the next two years. A spokesperson for Cuomo said the governor donated $500,000 of his profits from the book to the United Way of New York State. The book was published in October by Crown Publishing Group, a division of Penguin Random House, just as the state was seeing a deadly resurgence in infections.

The world's thirstiest beer drinkers finally clinked their pilsner mugs in the drizzle on Monday, as beer gardens opened despite unseasonably cold grey weather in the Czech Republic, a landmark event after five months of COVID-19 lockdown. "Finally I am sitting here as a human," said Martin Krisko, savouring his cold beer with a meal served hot, on a plate, rather than lukewarm in a plastic takeaway container, at the Beer Time pub in Prague's former industrial quarter Smichov. The Czech Republic, home to the original pilsner, consumes the most beer per capita in the world, and reopening its pubs for outdoor service is seen as an important step in its plans to relax its COVID-19 restrictions.
NEW YORK (AP) — The merger of Discovery and AT&T's WarnerMedia operations, marrying the likes of HBO and CNN with HGTV and Oprah Winfrey, is another illustration of the head-spinning speed in which streaming has transformed the media world. The companies are essentially placing a $43 billion bet that they'll still be in the mix when consumers decide how to spend their monthly entertainment budgets. The agreement was announced Monday after AT&T CEO John Stankey and his Discovery counterpart, David Zaslav, worked out the details in Zaslav's Manhattan brownstone over the past two months. “I think, together, the combination makes us the best media company in the world,” said Zaslav, who will run the new company if approvals are granted, probably sometime next year. The deal also represents a strategic retreat for AT&T. The hope for the newly merged company is that, with a wider array of material than either can offer on its own, it can join Netflix, Amazon and Disney in the widely acknowledged top tier of streamers. Analysts say it also makes it imperative that services below that tier — think Paramount+ or Peacock — find some way to ramp up or risk being left behind. WarnerMedia and Discovery both launched their own streaming services, HBO Max and Discovery+, within the past two years. It's still not clear whether the merger will result in a single streaming service or several bundled together, but it will have a vast array of content to offer: scripted and reality TV, movies, sports including the NBA and NCAA men's basketball tournament, and news with CNN. With consumers figuring out which streaming services they use regularly and which they can give up, that depth means a better chance they will use this new one regularly, said Raj Venkatesan, professor of business administration at the University of Virginia. The average U.S. household spends $40 a month on streaming services. “It either has something for everyone in the family, or is so diverse that it is hard to explain,” said Jim Nail, an analyst for Forrester Research. HBO Max and HBO have a combined global subscriber base of about 63.9 million, and Discovery+ has about 15 million subscribers. That compares with Netflix, which has more than 200 million subscribers worldwide, and Disney+, which counts over 100 million. In a call with investors, Zaslav said he believes that the standalone company could garner “200, 300, 400 million” subscribers at some point in the future, but there were no details regarding a timeline. The deal is a stark reminder of how much the entertainment world has changed, said Tim Hanlon, CEO of the media consultants Vertere Group. “I think most consumers now look at live television as being something of an anachronism,” he said. While it increases the pressure on smaller streaming services like Peacock or Paramount+ to find partners, those two are affiliated with the NBC and CBS television networks — so doing so would require a rethinking of the broadcast industry regulatory process, Hanlon said. It’s the second time this year that AT&T has calved off a major acquisition as it navigates a rapidly evolving media landscape. In February, the company spun off satellite TV service DirecTV for a fraction of the $48.5 billion it paid in 2015. Dallas-based AT&T acquired the former company Time Warner for more than $80 billion less than five years ago in a bid to control both sides of the entertainment process: the broadband and wireless services that help deliver entertainment to homes, and the entertainment itself. But the costs involved in trying to do both became a burden. “That vision clearly has not panned out,” said CFRA analyst Tuna Amobi. The new company will be able to cut costs by $3 billion annually, the companies said, money that could go toward original streaming content. It will house almost 200,000 hours of programming and bring together more than 100 brands under one global portfolio, including DC Comics, Cartoon Network, Eurosport, Magnolia, TLC and Animal Planet. That likely means layoffs as the companies consolidate. The deal is also likely to force major decisions on familiar brands. For instance, CNN Chief Executive Jeff Zucker said he expected to leave at the end of the year. But with the new company being led by Zaslav — who worked with Zucker at NBC in the 1990s — that equation could change. Zaslav called Zucker an extraordinary talent. “It's all about the talent, and so we'll be figuring out how do we get the best people to stay,” he said. Shares of Discovery Inc., which is based in Silver Spring, Maryland, fell about 6% to $33.54 Monday after initially jumping to $39.70. AT&T's shares were off about 1% at $31.90, down from a session high of $33.88. ___ AP business writers Tali Arbel, Anne D'Innocenzio and Michelle Chapman contributed to this report.

Eco-Friendly Car Wash Chain Prepares for Growing DemandLOS ANGELES, May 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bliss, the Southern California chain of eight eco-friendly car washes, today announced hiring plans for the remainder of 2021 as it prepares for the reopening of the state and more people returning to their cars. “We’re happy to see folks feeling the freedom to be out and about using their cars more for work, and pleasure,” said CEO Vahid David Delrahim. “With more vehicle activity, we have seen a massive increase for car wash services, and we’re ready to meet that demand with our green touch.” Delrahim said the company plans to hire new employees throughout all eight of the communities in which the car washes are located. Those communities are: Aliso Viejo; Brea, Moreno Valley; Oxnard; Palmdale; Placentia; San Bernardino and Santa Paula. Those interested in learning more about the jobs can visit Blisscarwash.com for available listings. “Bliss Car Wash is rapidly growing and looking for energetic, smiling team members,” said Delrahim. The company offers flexible working hours, holiday pay, medical, dental, vision, critical illness and accident insurance plans, and a 401(k) with matching employer contributions. “And we’re now offering a $250 signing bonus along with free car washes,” he added. Delrahim said the positions qualify as “green jobs” because they meet the Bureau of Labor Statistics definition as “jobs in businesses that provide services that benefit the environment or conserve natural resources.” Bliss uses a reclamation system in its washing process, re-using 70 percent of the water. They also use exclusively biodegradable cleaning solutions, low energy-consuming machinery and smart water meters to manage water consumption, detect leaks, and monitor reclaim units. Delrahim added the employees consider themselves “Water Warriors.” “We believe water is life, so we fight to conserve it at every turn. We are united. We’re all part of life on this planet and together we can make it better,” he said. “We hope that our new employees will join our current ones feeling that they are Water Warriors in their new green jobs.” Also noteworthy, with each new Bliss opening, Vahid David Delrahim donates a new fresh-water well to the nonprofit, Wells Bring Hope. Delrahim and the Bliss company have aligned with the nonprofit Wells Bring Hope in its mission to bring safe water to rural villages in Niger, West Africa. Bliss plans to open more car washes in the coming months. About Bliss Car Wash Bliss Car Wash offers premium unlimited wash memberships at a great value. We are a refreshing car wash experience because we ensure that your car is cleaned responsibly, using cleaning products that are biodegradable and safe for the environment.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday by the New York Yankees because of a left quad strain. The Yankees made the move before the opener of their four-game series in Texas. It was retroactive to Friday, the day after he last played. He was held out of all three games during a weekend series in Baltimore. Right-hander Albert Abreu was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Stanton is hitting .282 with nine homers and 24 RBIs in his 33 games this season. The four-time All-Star and 2017 National League MVP homered in three consecutive games on May 4-6 but has only three hits in 25 at-bats since then. Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks was put on the 10-day injured list Sunday, retroactive to Thursday, after tearing a tendon sheath in his left wrist. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press
