  • Presidential candidate Joe Biden has spent the last several weeks telling campaign audiences he was arrested in apartheid South Africa while trying to meet with Nelson Mandela.
  • On Friday, he told CNN the story wasn't true.
  • Amid the former vice president's admission, he is looking to the South Carolina primary for a second wind, where he hopes for a big turnout from black voters.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders has typically claimed the mantle of being arrested for his civil rights activism.

But throughout the presidential campaign, former Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly touted his own experience with civil disobedience. And in the past few weeks, he's claimed he was arrested during a visit with Nelson Mandela in apartheid South Africa with the Congressional Black Caucus and other US officials.

Only a third of Americans have high confidence in an accurate vote count — here's why paper ballots could restore their faith in secure elections

Posted: 28 Feb 2020 11:17 AM PST

 
  • As the 2020 election cycle continues, more and more places in the US are switching over to using paper ballots.
  • Experts say paper voting systems are the safest method for elections, as they are less vulnerable to hacking and manipulation.
  • In Ohio, 12 counties have enlisted a new voting machine company that's focused its innovation on paper and is challenging a market traditionally dominated by three legacy providers.
  • But officials say when it comes to protecting our elections, the perception of security is ultimately more important than the reality.

The best hybrid mattresses

Posted: 28 Feb 2020 11:10 AM PST

  • A high-quality hybrid mattress provides great edge support and motion isolation, offers support and comfort for a broad range of sleeping styles and body types, and is durable enough to last a decade or longer.
  • Our hybrid mattress recommendations suit a variety of sleepers, have long trial periods, and performed well in our tests.
  • The Leesa Hybrid Mattress is our top pick because the motion transfer isolation allows you to remain asleep when your partner gets up, the edge support is outstanding, and it dissipates heat.
  • For more options, see our guide to the best mattress and our list of the best mattress deals and sales you can get right now.

Hybrid mattresses — made up of springs and a comfort layer on top, usually memory foam or latex — have two main benefits over all-foam and all-coil options. In a hybrid design, the coils tend to allow for more airflow, which translates into a cooler sleep. The other benefit is durability: Coils tend to hold up better than foam, which can start to degrade and sag over time.

On the other hand, hybrid mattresses generally cost more than their spring-free counterparts. But, the cost should not be a top consideration when shopping for a mattress. Keep in mind that your bed will likely last you at least 10 years and usually much longer. This turns price differences of a few hundred dollars into just a few cents per day. And, most of us would gladly shell out a few cents each day for quality sleep and comfort.

How we test hybrid mattresses

For this guide, my Business Insider colleagues and I tested several hybrid mattresses. In addition to spending many nights sleeping on them, we put each through several tests (listed below) consisting of real-world and technical measurements. We also examined recommendations from other reviewers, to measure how hybrid mattresses performed in their testing. Some mattresses performed well across all metrics; some didn't do as well in certain tests but weren't deal-breakers. We will be refining our testing methods as we continue to test new options for future updates.

What we looked for

Motion transfer: Have you woken up due to movements caused by a sleeping companion? A mattress with good motion isolation can help prevent this. Our motion transfer test involves putting a 12-ounce can of liquid in the middle of the bed. I then drop a 20-pound weight from about 4 feet above the mattress so that it lands 12 inches from the can. If the can falls over, then the bed doesn't have very good motion transfer isolation. If the can remains upright after a few tries, then the motion isolation is excellent.

Sleep temperature: Though hybrid mattresses tend to breathe better and are thus cooler than all-foam options, there's still significant variance in how well they dissipate heat. To test this, I simply noted how the bed felt when I returned to it after using the restroom in the night. I also paid close attention to how hot it felt throughout the night.

Firmness: Currently, there is no standardized way to measure mattress firmness, which is unfortunate since this is a major consideration for many shoppers. And, you can't always trust the firmness claimed by a bed manufacturer. Based on my testing experience and reading countless reviews, I established a basis for what an average firmness is. My main mattress is average by most accounts. So, I compare the firmness of any new mattresses to what I usually sleep on. I've also found that if it's firmer, I have trouble sleeping on my side. If it's too soft, stomach sleeping is uncomfortable.

Maneuverability: Your mattress needs to be easy to move if you want to rotate it regularly to increase its lifespan or if you move frequently — there's no need to flip over a hybrid mattress since the coils remain at the bottom. I test maneuverability by taking the bed from one room to another and rotating it many times. I note the amount of effort I must expend.

Edge support: If you sleep with someone who crowds you or if you sit on the side of your mattress to put on your socks and shoes, edge support is crucial. I test edge support by seeing how close I can lie on the edge of the bed without falling off. I also sit on the side and note how much give the mattress has. 

Sleeping position: Your sleeping position has a major bearing on what mattresses feel comfortable to you. Between my wife and me, we have the three main positions covered — back, stomach, and side. Our experiences on a mattress provide insight into which sleepers will most benefit from it.

We also look closely at whether there's white-glove service or in-home delivery (free or for a fee), the trial period and whether there are fees associated with returning the mattress, type of foundation needed for best performance, and the warranty length. Remember, everybody has their own preferences and needs when it comes to sleep — some things we mention in our guide is somewhat subjective — so being able to try out a mattress is a must.

Along with testing several hybrid mattresses for this guide, we researched hundreds of buyer and professional reviews and ratings of the top brands. Our guide features mattresses that are meant for a variety of sleepers, have long trial periods, and did well in our tests. 

All of the prices listed in our guide are for the queen-sized bed. For the prices of other mattress sizes, we recommend following the links we provide.

Here are the best hybrid mattresses in 2020:

The best hybrid mattress overall

Leesa

Offering outstanding edge support and motion isolation, the Leesa Hybrid is the best hybrid mattress, thanks to an ideal combination of support and comfort that works for a wide array of body types and sleeping styles.

My wife and I slept on the Leesa Hybrid, formerly called the "Sapira," for about a year. We have different body types and sleeping styles. I sleep on my side and stomach, weigh 250 pounds, and am 6-feet tall. She's a back sleeper with a weight that is proportional to her tall frame. Despite these differences, and after testing other hybrid mattresses, this one from Leesa became the overall favorite when it comes to comfort.

The Leesa Hybrid does an exceptional job of dissipating heat, so my usually hot body can stay cool. I put it through motion transfer and edge support tests, and the mattress passed with flying colors. This makes it a smart choice for couples.

Per the company's recommendation, I used a "firm, flat, and sturdy" foundation to support the average-firmness mattress. Specifically, I tried the Leesa Foundation. It worked, but there were several minor issues that I cover in my full Leesa Hybrid review.

Leesa provides a risk-free, 100-night trial and backs the bed with a 10-year warranty. Setting up the mattress and foundation wasn't too hard, but you might consider the $150 white-glove service, which includes removal of your old bed.

The subtle bounce of the coils and pressure relief of the memory foam made the Leesa Hybrid stand out to The Wirecutter. It recommends it for heavier individuals as well as back, stomach, and side sleepers. It also notes that the mattress has impressive cooling abilities.

Slumber Yard recommends the outstanding balance of soft memory foam feel and supportive springs to back and stomach sleepers. The review touches on how comfortable and well-made the mattress feels.

Pros: Great edge support, impressive cooling abilities, excellent motion transfer isolation, works for a wide array of sleepers

Cons: The mattress may be too firm for side sleepers with petite frames

Read our Leesa Hybrid Mattress review.



The best budget hybrid mattress

Allswell

The Allswell Supreme Mattress is designed to provide comfort and support to a broad range of sleepers at an affordable price.

Allswell is a Walmart brand that popped up in 2018, to provide high-quality bed-in-a-box mattresses at low costs. The Allswell Supreme Mattress is the top-of-the-line model. The 14-inch bed has five layers: quilted top cover, built-in Euro top, graphite and copper gel-infused memory foam, Energex foam (a type of memory foam), and individually-wrapped pocket coils.

In my tests, the five layers added up to a supportive firmness that felt good both on my side and stomach. The edge support was impressive and the motion transfer was satisfactory, which makes this a very good solution for couples. However, I didn't like that the mattress held onto my body heat. In the summer, I'd add a cooling mattress topper to combat this.

Other reviewers reported similar findings. The Sleep Sherpa noted that it's soft yet supportive, and feels equally good on his stomach and side. 

Pros: Affordable, features graphite and copper gel-infused memory foam and pocket coils, great edge support, 100-night risk-free trial, medium firmness, 10-year warranty

Cons: Not available in any showrooms, heavy, sleeps a little hot

Read our Allswell Supreme Mattress review.



The best for hot sleepers

Casper

For side sleepers who tend to overheat at night, the Casper Hybrid Mattress is the ideal choice from one of the top names in the business.

I'm a fan of Casper. The company disrupted the mattress business and has remained atop the bed-in-a-box industry since it released its flagship all-foam mattress in 2014. Casper has since expanded its lineup and now offers a hybrid option. I've tried both, and while I think most people will prefer the all-foam option, the Casper Hybrid Mattress felt better for my sleeping needs.

The Casper Hybrid features four layers of CertiPUR-US certified memory foam along with individually wrapped coils for 12 inches of support. I was impressed with how well the mattress promotes airflow, which kept me cool. The Casper Hybrid is slightly softer than the industry average but is ideal for my side and stomach sleeping. I'm not sure I would recommend it for couples, though, since it failed my motion transfer tests, and the edge support is good enough but not outstanding.

Backed by a 100-night risk-free trial and 10-year warranty, you can try it at home before you commit for the long term. Casper products can also be found in over 1,000 Target stores as well as the company's own brick-and-mortar stores if you'd rather try the mattress at a store.

Pros: 100-night risk-free trial, good edge support, ideal for side sleepers, 12 inches thick with supportive coils and four breathable foam layers

Cons: Edge support has some room for improvement, mattress weight makes it hard to rotate and lift, failed motion transfer tests

International airports around the world have become increasingly empty as flights have been canceled and more travel warnings have been issued during the coronavirus outbreak.

The novel coronavirus — which originated in Wuhan, China — has now killed 2,810 people, with at least 60 deaths of those occurring outside of China. As of now, over 82,500 people have been infected globally, although 95% of the cases have been in China.

At least 47 countries outside of China have reported cases of coronavirus, and the fear of contracting and spreading COVID-19 has caused a significant drop in flights to and from Asia: 73 airlines have canceled flights to China. Flights that don't start or end in China are also being canceled, with Italy and the Middle East as major hotspots now.

Walmart, McDonald's, Home Depot, and 7 other retailers share how the coronavirus outbreak could affect business

Posted: 28 Feb 2020 10:39 AM PST

coronavirus china shopping mallTyrone Siu/Reuters

  • The coronavirus outbreak is taking a toll on the economy in China and beyond.
  • Certain sectors and companies are more exposed to risk than others.
  • Business Insider contacted numerous retailers to get a sense of how the coronavirus is affecting their international operations and supply chains.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Retailers have shuttered their doors throughout China to stave off the coronavirus outbreak.

At the same time, international businesses are keeping an eye on the situation, given the potential for a supply-chain fallout. As a result of the tragic spate of deaths and illnesses, the entire global economy has been put at risk, according to the Federal Reserve.

Business Insider contacted a slew of consumer companies to find out how they were contending with the outbreak.

Here's a look at how different big-boxes, luxury brands, and fast-food chains are responding to the coronavirus:

Walmart

Kim Kyung-Hoon/Reuters

Walmart executives broke down the retail giant's response to the coronavirus outbreak in China during the company's investment community event on February 18.

"We're managing the issues related to the coronavirus daily," CEO Doug McMillon said early in the presentation "Our primary focus is of course on our associates and our customers."

The company is expecting a negative financial hit in the first quarter as a result of the epidemic. Walmart is also doubling down on delivery through its partnership with the Chinese delivery and logistics firm Dada-JD Daojia.

But the retailer is still running most of its locations in China, albeit on reduced hours.

"We like to keep stores open," McMillon said. "Customers need us. We do it with hurricanes in the US. We're doing it with this situation in China."



Burberry

Thomas Peter/Reuters

The outbreak has posed a major problem for Burberry and other luxury fashion brands.

"The outbreak of the coronavirus in mainland China is having a material negative effect on luxury demand," Burberry CEO Marco Gobbetti said in a statement the retailer provided to Business Insider. "While we cannot currently predict how long this situation will last, we remain confident in our strategy."

Twenty-four of its 64 stores in mainland China are closed, while the 40 remaining locations are running under "reduced hours" with "significant footfall declines."

Gobbetti went on to say in the statement that the company was "taking mitigating actions and every precaution to help ensure the safety and well-being of our employees."



Home Depot

Donald Chan/Reuters

According to Seth Basham, the managing director of equity research at Wedbush Securities, Home Depot — and its North Carolina-based rival Lowe's — sources about 30% of its products from China.

"This is a fluid situation that we're watching closely," a Home Depot representative said in a statement to Business Insider. "We're in constant touch with our suppliers and are making contingency plans to ensure minimal impact to our supply chain."

Basham said "consumer uncertainty" could also prompt shoppers to "delay bigger-ticket home improvement projects," thus harming the home-improvement sector.
