The global pandemic since early 2020 has provided great opportunities for healthcare service providers and companies. We have discussed these topics when the pandemic began.

Moderna Inc. staged one of the biggest initial public offerings for a biotechnology company in late 2018. Moderna sold 26.3 million of its shares at $23 a piece, in line with pricing expectations…
China’s online food-delivery market is growing fast. The market has gained from 21.68 billion yuan to 205.27 billion yuan from 2011 to 2017. Meituan is one of the food-delivery giants in the market. It has 310 million users and delivering 11 million meals daily last year.
As China’s app-for-everything, Meituan doesn’t have an exact parallel elsewhere because its business ranges from food delivery to travel booking. Although two-third of revenue comes from its food-delivery business, the domestic hotel room booked through Meituan has increased to 205 million. And more than 80% of those hotel bookers ordered their food-delivery business.

As the third largest coffee chain in the United States, Panera (combining its JAB brands, has 4,739 units in the U.S. as of Oct 2019, following Starbucks’s 14,875 and Dunkin’s 9570) should take serious consideration before its China adventure.

Running an election campaign in the 21st century relies more on business models. One of the most powerful tools for achieving success is micro-targeting.
Unlike his predecessor, the President-elect Joe Biden, however, chose a traditional approach towards his 270-vote threshold to become president. In the 2020 presidential campaign, Trump was again taking advantage of the social media giant’s granular knowledge of its users’ interests to target specific ads to specific people, and is doing so much more often than Biden.
In terms of campaigning, perhaps Trump is not the real master of micro-targeting, Obama is.

By using automation, drug companies can keep track more easily and faster than humans. …
