Captain Sir Tom Moore, the World War II veteran whose fundraising efforts for U.K. healthcare workers made him a national hero, has died after testing positive for Covid-19. He was 100. In the early months of the pandemic, Captain Tom set out to raise £1,000 for Britain’s NHS by walking 100 laps of his backyard. His quest went viral, eventually raising £33 million ($40 million) with donations from as far away as the U.S. and Japan. When Captain Tom finished his 100th lap on April 16, a military honor guard lined the path. In July he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in a socially distanced ceremony at Windsor Castle.

Richard Branson is expected to fly into space this year, but his fortune has already hit the stratosphere. The billionaire has added $1.8 billion to his wealth since mid-January as shares in Virgin Galactic surged. The peak was driven by a run of positive events: Cathie Wood’s plan for an ETF tracking space-focused companies, attention from Reddit-fueled retail investors and the announcement of plans to resume spaceplane test fights. Branson now has a record net worth of $7.8 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaire’s Index, with more than half of his fortune coming from his stake in Virgin Galactic. Link in bio for more.

New Fox Business host Larry Kudlow said Monday that former President Donald Trump would go down as a "brilliant, consequential" president on policy terms and would have been better served to focus on his achievements instead of fighting the election result in the final weeks of his term. Kudlow, who joined the Trump White House as the top economic adviser in 2018, touted the administration's achievements on tax and regulatory reforms, and he also criticized the Biden adminstration's Keystone Pipeline cancellation as well as the "Democratic wish list" in its proposed coronavirus rescue package. Kudlow will begin hosting a show on Fox Business next week. Go to the link in our bio for more on this story.
