    Billionaires want people back to work. Employees aren’t so sure
    By Max Abelson and Donald Moore, Bloomberg
    The billionaire Tom Golisano was smoking a Padron cigar on his patio in Florida on Tuesday afternoon. He was worried.
    “The damages of keeping the economy closed as it is could be worse than losing a few more people,” said Golisano, founder and chairman of the payroll processor Paychex Inc. “I have a very large concern that if businesses keep going along the way they’re going then so many of them will have to fold.”

    How the Lakers stay in shape under coronavirus quarantine
    In the hunt for the silver linings of social distancing, there’s never been a better time for Danny Green to run outside.
    Under normal circumstances, the Lakers guard wouldn’t be able to run in his South Bay neighborhood without running into someone who wants to stop him for a picture or an autograph. But last week, when he and his girlfriend left home to go jogging by the beach, they were blissfully uninterrupted.

    Whicker: Jim Wynn Cannon-ized pitchers throughout the National League
    Jim Wynn was ahead of his time, even when he was out of place.
    A home-run hitter in Houston’s Astrodome, at least in its old configuration, was like a fisherman in the Mojave. Put a 5-foot-9 guy in the batter’s box, surround him with guys who hit soft singles when they hit at all, and Wynn has to be recognized as one of the unlikeliest power sources in baseball history.
    Wynn had 291 home runs, most of them executed from the heels. In 1967, Wynn had 37. Some modern analysts project th

    Recipes: Make a soup, a spread, a salsa, a side dish or a snack with canned beans from your pantry
    As the world faces a pandemic, eating well at home takes on a high priority. Many home pantries showcase canned goods including a lineup of canned beans, the cornerstones of spur-of-the-moment meals that are high in protein and fiber. The whush-whirl sound of lid parting can announces that dinner is just minutes away. It’s a welcome tune to a frazzled cook’s ears.
    Purists might argue that cooked-from-scratch beans are better, insisting that canned beans are saltier and more expensive
