Today, Buzzsprout, one of the world’s largest podcast hosting platforms, announced the launch of a new feature set that allows podcasters to easily distribute their own episode transcripts to listeners.

MacKenzie Scott hasn’t given any interviews about her split from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos or her philanthropic pursuits in the time since. But a new story from the Medium business publication Marker paints an extraordinary portrait of the life of one of the richest women in the world.

Calling Scott “the mysterious 60-billion-dollar woman” in her story this week, journalist Stephanie Clifford said she, too, was unable to reach Scott through multiple channels and requests. But through interviews with friends, schoolmates, instructors, associates, and former co-workers of Scott’s, along with previously unreported public documents, she’s able to “reveal Scott’s complicated relationship with money.”

The story comes just a couple months after Scott, who changed her name from Bezos after her divorce, announced that she was giving $1.67 billion to 116 non-profit organizations as part of her pledge to give away the majority of her wealth.

Now Kayleigh McEnany Has COVID, Making a Dozen From Rose Garden Ceremony

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and two of her staffers have tested positive for COVID-19, just days after the president revealed a similar diagnosis. McEnany said she has tested positive “while experiencing no symptoms.” McEnany, who is one of 12 officials in a growing list of Trumpworld figures to test positive for the highly contagious virus after attending an event at the Rose Garden last Saturday, most recently interacted with reporters on Sunday evening—and was maskless. Multiple news outlets also reported that at least two other members of the White House press shop—Chad Gilmartin and Karoline Leavitt—have tested positive. Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship, who went to a prayer march with Vice President Mike Pence and Franklin Graham before attending the Rose Garden ceremony, announced Monday he has also tested positive for

(Reuters) – Salesforce.com on Wednesday said it has adapted some of its business software to help healthcare organizations and government entities distribute vaccines for the novel coronavirus once they become available.

The San Francisco-based company said the offering, called Work.com for Vaccines, will help cities, states and health-care groups track vaccine inventory levels, create online appointment portals and track how patients fare after being vaccinated.

Multiple companies and nations around the world are racing to develop a vaccine to provide some degree of immunity to the coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19. The chief executive of GlaxoSmithKline, the world’s largest maker of vaccines, on Tuesday said she was optimistic the industry will be able to make vaccine widely available next year.

Salesforce.com’s efforts build on tools rolled out in May aimed at modifying the company’s business software to help governments make re-opening decisions based on public health data and carry
