    A store displays a sign before closing down permanently in Arlington, Virginia.OLIVIER DOULIERY/AFP via Getty Images State and local officials have begun closing some businesses to counter a new surge in coronavirus infections, potentially putting Americans out of work for the second time since the spring. Delaware and Nevada are among the states where officials are re-imposing some restrictions on non-essential businesses. Rules have also tightened recently in California, Illinois and Virginia.

That means no more raucous get-togethers with extended family, being relegated to the kids' table or figuring out how to politely decline Grandma's fruitcake.We know spending the holidays on our own will keep our loved ones healthy.

Everyone from Kate Middleton to Meghan Markle has had to pass the social trials. Margaret Thatcher isn’t exactly the most sympathetic political leader in history, but it was hard not to feel sorry for her during The Crown’s deeply awkward Balmoral episode—where the prime minister visited the royals and was greeted with (a) rudeness, (b) snobbery, and (c) the ~BALMORAL TEST~.

    Women in a matriarchal Chinese tribe - where females inherit property, control finances and take as many lovers as they wish - are healthier than those in male dominated villages, researchers have found. A new study suggests that women who live in villages of the Mosuo tribe in southwest China, known as the 'Kingdom of Women', have lower blood pressure than similar villages run by men.  Women in these communities were also found to be less likely to develop heart disease or type two diabetes as they had much lower levels of inflammatory proteins in their blood.

    The Nervous Girls play Lucky You Tattoo in St. Petersburg, Florida on Jan. 9, 2020.Dave Decker In April, when COVID-19’s chokehold on the national and local live music circuit was less scary, my friend Jay Cridlin (then entertainment critic for the Tampa Bay Times, now moved to the economic development desk) published a gallery of 40 local band T-shirts fans could buy to support their musical neighbors. The story was a great reminder of the service locals give to their communities, and it’s been sad to see the plight of local venues unfold over the last eight months. With no end in sight—and a certain fight over federal aid set to play out in D.C.—venues’ futures look grim, which means bands will have even less places to play. Two weeks ago, I revisited the impetus for Jay’s story (“How can I help a local band?”) and asked locals to post...

    SAN ANTONIO – From politics to the pandemic to civil unrest, it can be hard to avoid “doomscrolling” through your social media. That’s when you just can’t stop looking at it, even if it’s upsetting you. Psychologists say the barrage of negativity, including hate speech, violence and misinformation, can not only affect your mood, but your mental health as well. But social media doesn’t have to be that way. “You actually have some control over what kinds of posts you see on social media,” said Consumer Reports Tech Editor Thomas Germain. “This isn’t about blocking out the world and pretending that nothing wrong is happening. It’s about taking back control and deciding when you want to interact with this kind of content and doing so on your own terms.” For example, on Facebook, you can unfollow someone or simply “snooze” them for 30 days by clicking the three dots at...

    VIDEO2:5002:50Trading Nation: Cisco set to report earnings after the bell — Here's what to expectTrading Nation This quarter may be a turning point for Cisco Systems. Shares of the legacy technology giant fell 2% to around $38.50 heading into the company's Thursday earnings report after the bell as investors braced for yet another disappointment. Cisco's stock plunged after each of its last two earnings reports, now down more than 18% from when it reported its third straight quarterly revenue drop in August.

    By Steven Reinberg, HealthDay Reporter (HealthDay) THURSDAY, Nov. 12, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- No matter how many medications you take, eating a healthy diet, not smoking and getting plenty of exercise will help keep you alive, a new study finds. "We've long known about the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle. The results from our study underscore the importance of each person's ability to improve their health through lifestyle changes even if they are dealing with multiple health issues and taking multiple prescription medications," said researcher Neil Kelly. He's a medical student at Weill Cornell Medicine of Cornell University in New York City. For the study, Kelly's team collected data on more than 20,000 people who took part in a study on racial differences in stroke.

    MANY people’s lives have been turned upside down this year - and there’s no reason why your Christmas tree can’t be the same.   A big festive trend this year is flipping your tree so it hangs from the ceiling, which is perfect for those who don’t have much space.  Ariana Grande's brother Frankie previously shared an image of the singer's eye-popping inverted tree An upside-down tree doesn’t take up precious floor space, and lets you show off baubles and ornaments from all angles.  And not forgetting could be the perfect solution if you have toddlers or pets who would normally have attacked the bottom branches if it was standing upright.  Even celebrities such as Ariana Grande and the late Karl Lagerfeld have jumped on the bandwagon in previous years.  Plus it is simply a great conversation starter for all those who see it.  4The flipped trees are all the rage,...
    As Election Day came and went and we still didn’t know who was going to win the presidency, many of us ended up glued to our devices last week— moreso than usual— seeking the latest news. Whether it was the obsession with MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki and his map wizardry or the constant updates about how many votes were left to count in Pennsylvania or Georgia, Americans likely spent more time doomscrolling through their Twitter feeds and other apps than they normally do. Depending on who your preferred candidate was, by Saturday morning —when the networks called the election for Joe Biden— your doomscrolling may have turned into gleefreshing— the newly-coined term for manually updating your feed to read good news. On Sunday, we started seeing the updates: the iOS Screen Time feature helpfully lets you know how your screen time compares to the week before. Gene Park...

    Let’s get the easy part out of the way first: It’s all Congress’ fault. We screw up our body clocks and circadian rhythms with the bi-annual time change. “Spring” forward. “Fall” back. We’re either bleary-eyed or invigorated, depending on the season. Unless, we used the extra hour bequeathed us in the fall to stay up too late, swigging wine and watching Netflix. Regardless, there’s the bizarre Sunday morning ritual. The changing of the clocks. The nightstand clock. The bathroom clock. Wristwatches.

    I remember sitting on my little sister’s bed when I was nine. She and I took turns reading scary stories to each other in the golden light of the setting autumn sun. Once dusk had settled, my sister triumphantly pulled a book out of her backpack: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Stephen Gammell’s black-and-white illustrations were already burned into my brain from staring at the cover at my school library. I’d never been brave enough to pick it up. I looked at the book in my sister’s hands, light-headed from how fast my heart was pounding. She opened the cover and began to read and I loved it. That feeling, the adrenaline rush. Being scared engendered a closeness between my sister and I, two very different people who clashed often. We screamed and laughed together, checked her overflowing toy chest for monsters together, hid together when we...

    Getting a new phone is exciting, but it can also lead to spending an annoying amount of time adjusting settings, permissions and notifications for all your apps.

    (CNN)I just received an email notification that my mail-in ballot was received and will count in November's presidential election. This verification recorded one of the most ethically important decisions I make.Voting is not just a right, it's an ethical responsibility. And a candidate's ethics, or the ethics of a particular issue, should be central to our choice. Susan LiautaudBut in these challenging times, voting -- and considering a candidate's ethics in our decision -- can seem daunting. From the practicalities of mail-in ballots or showing up in person, to data privacy, Covid-19 and the very real racism embedded in our voting infrastructure, it may seem tempting to sit this one out rather than to consider our ethical responsibility. Our elected officials have outsized opportunity and responsibility to model decisions and behaviors for good. The election of a leader is a game-changing opportunity to cauterize the spread of unethical behavior and...

    Fox News host Sean Hannity took his already over-the-top promotion of the Hunter Biden laptop story to new heights on Tuesday night, setting up a camera outside Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s house and calling for Biden to “walk outside” and do a live interview to “answer these pressing questions.” Over the past few days, Trumpworld has gone all-in on Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s “October surprise”—a series of New York Post stories centered on materials purportedly from Hunter Biden's laptop that supposedly show “smoking gun” evidence of corruption on the part of the Bidens. The emails that have been disseminated so far, however, do not show any direct wrongdoing. While conservative media has run wild with the story of the supposed corruption involving China and the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, mainstream outlets have shown restraint in reporting it out, due to questions about the provenance of the supposed laptop...
    ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) – According to a YouGov poll, a third of females and a quarter of males have been called ‘crazy’ or ‘insane’ in a serious manner by a romantic partner.

However, 75 percent of Americans have never heard the term before! We’ll share what to do if you think you’re a victim of gaslighting. “You’re imagining things. I didn’t say that!” “You don’t know anything about money.” “You’re being so sensitive.” These are common phrases of gaslighting, which is manipulating someone by having them question their thoughts, memories, and current events, so much so that they question their own sanity. “It made me question who I was and what was going on within me,” said Mary Mitchell....
    Fatigue is one of the symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis. JGI/Jamie Grill/Getty Images Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious complication that occurs in people with diabetes when the body is unable to break down glucose and starts metabolizing fat instead, which increases ketones in the blood. Ketones are a byproduct that develops when the body burns fat for energy, and if they are elevated you may be at risk of symptoms like abdominal pain, confusion, excessive thirst, frequent urination, nausea, shortness of breath, and fatigue.

    When the coronavirus pandemic sent millions of Americans from their schools and offices to their homes, it was March, the tail end of a mild winter. Seven months later — after the loss of about 23 million jobs and the recovery of 11.4 million jobs — 18 state moratoriums blocking utility shut-offs have expired as of Wednesday and most of the expiration deadlines in 18 other states (also including Washington D.C.) come by year’s end. That’s worrisome enough for cash-strapped families that need to keep the lights on and power the devices which make remote work and distance learning possible. Now consider this: average household expenditures for all major home heating fuels are projected to rise in all categories except for home heating oil, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Natural gas expenditures are expected to rise 6%, electricity by 7% and propane by 14%,...

We're going to spare you any further rhyming couplets and just get to the facts: Existential Slices is a new walk-up pizza window that has taken over half of the Mr. Lucky's Fine Sandwiches at 711 East Sixth Avenue. The idea, according to the pizzeria's Instagram account, was "born out of the dumpster fire that is 2020." Galen Juracek, owner of Mr. Lucky's, converted the dining room of his sandwich shop into Existential Slices as a way to get extra use out of the space while serving as the food component for nextdoor neighbor Don's Club Tavern, owned by the Little Pub Company. "After a few months of the dining room just sitting there empty, we determined it was serving no purpose," Juracek explains. "But we need to survive and Little Pub Company needs to...

    VIDEO2:0702:07Jim Cramer: Don't invest based on Trump's tweetsSquawk on the Street CNBC's Jim Cramer on Wednesday warned investors not to buy or sell stocks based on what President Donald Trump tweets. The "Mad Money" host cites Tuesday afternoon's tweets from Trump ending broad stimulus talks, which sank stocks, and then Tuesday night's tweets supporting a piecemeal approach, which boosted stocks. "This is what happens if you invest by tweet," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street," as most stocks in the S&P 500 opened higher Wednesday. "If you're just going to look at the president's tweet, you're just going to end up on the wrong side of the trade." Cramer suggested that trading on a presidential tweet is a risk because there's no way to discern nuance in Twitter posts. "Can people be that ignorant? He's arbitrary and capricious on Twitter. So if he says 'sell' on Twitter, you buy," he advised. On...

    (CNN)Here's a scary idea: Even if you have the legal right to vote and have done everything to prepare yourself for casting a ballot this year, you could still be intimidated at the polls. But here's the key thing to know: Under federal law, you should always be able to cast what's known as a provisional ballot, even if your registration status is not clear.That's right. The federal government requires that a person whose registration is challenged be able to cast a ballot that can be counted once the voter's eligibility is established.That doesn't mean voting will be easy. If you're voting at the polls early or on Election Day, you still might have to brave long lines, pass by campaign activists or face challenges from credentialed poll watchers. President Donald Trump has encouraged his supporters to monitor polling places on his behalf as he spreads unfounded conspiracy theories about...

    Mental health experts with Healthline say people are feeling especially stressed about this year’s presidential election. According to “Choosing Therapy”, a professional counseling service, more than half of adults in the United States feel elections are a source for high stress. Experts say any kind of stress and anxiety can create poor health. Because this election feels so significant, stress levels are higher in adults. Not only can stress effect a person’s mental health, it can also produce physical illnesses. Experts say chronic stress and anxiety can trigger tension headaches, stomach aches, insomnia, and elevated blood pressure. Also, experts suggest talking to others about your feelings. They say as you share the tensions and negative emotions you’re feeling, it’s important to also focus on the positives. Remember to unplug from social media, if you’re feeling overwhelmed.

    kate_sept2004 If you're still waiting on $500 stimulus payments for your children, time is running out to meet a deadline to make sure the government gets that money to you. The IRS has set Wednesday, Sept. 30 for federal beneficiaries who were shut out of those dependent payments to submit their information to the agency's so-called non-filers tool. The stimulus checks were authorized by Congress this spring to help low- and middle-income families cope with the economic effects of the coronavirus crisis. It included payments of up to $1,200 per individual or $2,400 per married couple, plus $500 per child under 17. Some federal beneficiaries received payments that did not include the $500 payments for their children. Those who are eligible to submit information on behalf of their eligible dependents by the Sept. 30 deadline include those who are receiving Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits; Supplemental Security Income,...

    It’s important to keep your immune system healthy all the time, but especially when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Experts with Healthline say these drinks are full of nutrients that may help boost your immune system. First, try a citrus explosion with orange, grapefruit and any other citrus fruit.

    If you read The Atlantic report and heard President Donald Trump announced he’ll demand they “get rid of the ballots,” you might be nervous. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s call to defend American democracy likely didn’t help as she sounded the alarm that “it’s happening” and urged Americans to save democracy. Former Assistant Attorney General for Counterterrorism Joshua Geltzer penned a thread with ideas for what folks can do right now if you’re starting to panic and look for your passports. “First, Electoral College reps, Members of Congress, governors, & Defense Department leadership can pledge to abide by election results regardless of any single candidate’s claims otherwise,” he explained. In some states, electors are legally required to comply with the state’s vote, but that isn’t true for all of them. Americans should demand that their state electors pledge to abide by the vote even if the president requests otherwise. In some states, electors are legally required to comply with the state’s vote,...

    Peopleimages | E+ | Getty Images If you're thinking about a reverse mortgage, be prepared to learn a lot about a complicated financial commitment.  With a reverse mortgage, you can convert part of the equity in your home into cash instead of selling, provided you're at least 62 years old. As long as you continue paying taxes and maintaining the home, you cannot be evicted. It may sound like the answer to your retirement cash prayers, but complexity and costs are among the factors to consider. Here's how it works. Instead of a debt that gets lower as you make payments to the bank for a regular mortgage, a reverse mortgage is the exact opposite. You draw out funds and interest builds up, while the balance grows larger and you hold less equity in your home.  Keep in mind, you must use the funds to first pay off any existing mortgage on...
    People are freaking out over Donald Trump’s decision to try and swiftly nominate and confirm a Supreme Court Justice, and I’ve been hearing an earful about it on TV and online As a Never Trump conservative, I am especially prone to criticism from people who are surprised, angry, or incredulous when I support something Trump wants to do. This SCOTUS fight is no exception. After all, why is someone who has been so consistently critical of Trump supporting “such blatant hypocrisy,” as one emailer put it? Because I am in a unique position here, I thought it might be helpful to answer some of the questions that keep popping up. Here goes:

    UNEMPLOYED Americans could get up to $1,800 over the next six weeks thanks to an increase in unemployment benefits.

Noah played a clip of Trump questioning why Biden has failed to institute a mask mandate, prompting Noah to joke: “Yeah, Trump has a good point here — why hasn’t Joe Biden instituted a national mask mandate? And don’t say it’s because he’s not the president and doesn’t have any power — that’s not an excuse!” “Look, guys, between this and blaming riots on Joe Biden, either Trump is delusional, or he’s slowly trying to Jedi-mind-trick America into thinking that Biden has been president this whole time,” Noah added before mimicking the president. “‘Guys, if you want four more years of this disaster, by all means, re-elect President Biden.

    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes tore into President Donald Trump Wednesday evening for the president’s comments dismissing coronavirus deaths in the “blue states,” and for his dismissal of CDC Director Robert Redfield‘s Senate testimony concerning the timeline for a vaccine and urging Americans to continue to wear face masks. The All In With Chris Hayes host played a video clip from Redfield’s comments to the Senate Appropriations Committee, showing Redfield calling face masks “the most important, powerful public health tool we have.” “I will continue to appeal for all Americans, all individuals in our country, to embrace these face coverings,” said Redfield, adding that a vaccine would most likely not be widely available until mid- to late-2021 and would not have a 100 percent efficacy.

    Westend61 | Westend61 | Getty Images Retirement often seems like a far-off destination. But once you hit your 40s, it's no longer the distant country you once thought it was. On the plus side, you still have time to make some smart money moves with retirement savings. On the minus side, saving what you'll need may be a bit more challenging than it was when you were younger. The reason is the power of compound interest, says Elijah Kovar, co-founder of Great Waters Financial in Minneapolis. "You don't need to invest a ton of money if you start in your 20s but if you wait till your 40s, you have to invest so much more to make up for what you didn't invest in your 20s," Kovar said.

And while the Empower Field at Mile High stands will be empty during the tilt, as they were at most NFL contests over the weekend, that won't be the case for the Broncos' next home game, on September 27 versus the Tom Brady-helmed Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The joint announcement of the plan made during a September 8 press conference by Governor Jared Polis and Brittany Bowlen, Broncos vice president of strategic initiatives (and face-of-the-franchise heir apparent), has already stirred its share of controversy, with Chris Zacher of Levitt Pavilion among those charging favoritism over the move.

    I didn't think I would see anything as sickening this year as the appalling killing of George Floyd at the kneed of a callous police officer. But I was wrong. The grainy video of a disgusting coward sneaking up to shoot two deputy sheriffs in Compton, Los Angeles as they sat in their patrol car was just as repulsive and disturbing. There was no warning, and no provocation. This was just a deliberate, pre-meditated attempt at a cold-blooded execution. The shooter clearly intended to kill his targets as he fired a number of rounds from his pistol at point blank range into their car before running off. Fortunately, as I write this column, he appears to have failed in his mission as both deputies are reported to have miraculously survived the ambush, although they were seriously injured.  Video released by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department shows the moment that...

    Lack of concentration, headaches, fatigue and even obesity are just some of the things that happen to your body when you oversleep, a sleep expert has claimed. Olivia Arezzolo, from Sydney, said while you might think that spending more than nine hours sleeping regularly would have you leaping out of bed the next day, in fact it can often mean the opposite. 'Studies show that long sleep is as problematic as short sleep - it can increase your risk of mortality by up to 30 per cent,' Olivia told FEMAIL. 'This is mainly derived from a cluster of cardiovascular illnesses linked to oversleeping, such as heart disease, diabetes and hypertension.'  Olivia detailed the five things that happen to your body when you clock too many hours of shut-eye, and the 10-step bedtime routine to follow for the perfect night's sleep.

If only it were so easy to tell if someone’s blitzed out of their mind. If a cop pulls you over, they can only objectively determine intoxication on the roadside with a breathalyzer: In the lungs, ethanol is transferred from the blood into air, so the device can detect alcohol in your exhalation. Even then, one person at the US federal legal driving limit of .08 breath alcohol concentration (BrAC) might act perfectly normal, while another person would be trying unsuccessfully to fish a slice of pizza out of a gutter. But scientists are working on what might be a new way to determine intoxication, by returning to a stereotypical characteristic of the drunk that’s actually true: that soused walk. No matter how well you...

Experts say that staying hydrated goes a long way when it comes to keeping your body functioning to its fullest potential. 4Staying hydrated is key to helping your body functionCredit: Getty Images - Getty The NHS recommends that we drink six to eight glasses of fluid a day to keep us from getting dehyrdrated.

    I never thought I’d have to get a seat cushion, but now that working from home is a reality, I’m glad I did.

Here Are Your Options if You’re One of Them The coronavirus pandemic has weaved two opposing narratives in the U.S. housing market. On one hand, it has buoyed home prices amid extremely tight inventory and frenzied demand. On the other, it has pushed some homeowners to a financial brink, where they cannot keep up with their monthly mortgage payments. © Kiersten Essenpreis for Money Options-if-You-Cant Pay-Mortgage The share of households reporting that they had no confidence in making their August mortgage payment reached about 6% in the latest weekly U.S. Census’ Household Pulse Survey, marking the highest rate since April when the survey began.

    What if you can’t pay the rent, there’s nothing in the fridge—and the only money you have is what’s in your 401(k) or IRA? It’s not a rhetorical question. Millions of Americans have been hammered by the pandemic-induced economic crash. GDP collapsed at a still-hard-to-believe 33% rate in the second quarter. Tens of millions of jobs have been lost. Up to 40 million Americans are at risk of eviction. Meanwhile, nearly 20% of households with kids report being unable to afford to give their children enough food. So what to do? One option for people lucky enough to have a 401(k) and/or an individual retirement account (IRA) could be to tap into them on a short-term basis, says Sally Brandon, senior vice president at Rebalance, an investment and retirement advisory firm. In the old days—as in before the pandemic changed everything—financial advisers like Brandon were pretty...
    If you don't want to risk going to the theater, these flicks are here to help. MGM/UA Distribution Co/United International Pictures/Universal Pictures/Netflix Christopher Nolan's new movie "Tenet" hits theaters on August 12, but many people may still feel too nervous to watch it in a room full of people. "Tenet" is about an intelligence agent tasked with saving the world from a villain with time-inverting technology. Insider's review states that while the movie is a technical marvel, the movie is too confusing to keep up with and leaves you feeling uninvested in the stakes. We've compiled a list of movies available to watch on Netflix, listed chronologically by year of release, that can fill the void of "Tenet" if you don't feel comfortable going to see it. "Time Trap" and "See You Yesterday" are both clever movies that deal with time travel, while "GoldenEye" and "Inside Man" are...
    The brother of missing Colorado woman Suzanne Morphew is speaking publicly for the first time, pleading with his brother-in-law to co-operate with authorities.  Suzanne, 49, hasn't been seen since she set off on a solo bike ride from her home in Maysville on Mother's Day, May 10.  At the time, her husband, Barry Morphew, was reportedly 150 miles away in Denver at a training course for volunteer firefighters. He has denied any involvement in his wife's disappearance, and refutes claims that he has refused to take a polygraph test.  However, in an interview with Fox News on Monday, Suzanne's brother, Andy Moorman, said Barry should do more to help with the investigation.  'Please, Barry, if you could see this, I would really love it if you would take the time to revisit the authorities and go over everything once again ...

Erin Mayer/INSIDER Reapplication is an important part of sunscreen use. Most SPFs are only fully effective for about two hours. Supergoop! Defense Refresh (Re)Setting Mist makes re-upping on sunscreen easy, even when you're wearing makeup. It's a chemical sunscreen, so sensitive skin types and those who are pregnant might want to avoid it. Its active ingredient is octinoxate, which is not reef-safe, so we don't recommend using this at the beach. This article was medically reviewed by Sharleen St. Surin-Lord, MD, a board-certified dermatologist at Visage Dermatology and assistant professor of dermatology at Howard University.

Crystal Cox/Business Insider With gyms in many areas closed for the foreseeable future, both exercise enthusiasts and newbies have turned to online workout videos for inspiration.  Although Youtube, Instagram, and beyond have plenty of free, convenient videos, not all of them are led by qualified professionals and some won't be as effective long-term.  A quality workout will help you build muscle and strength over time, and doesn't make unrealistic promises, according to fitness expert Alex Koch.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.
