If Wall Street had a seat belt sign, now’s when the captain would tell us to buckle up for possible turbulence ahead.

Even if earnings season didn’t begin tomorrow, there’s plenty to keep investors on their toes. Amazon’s (AMZN) Prime Day, Apple’s (AAPL) long-awaited product event, continued stimulus negotiations in Washington, and mounting virus cases in the U.S. and Europe all get mixed into the recipe.

Ordinarily, those ingredients would be enough for anyone, but this time it’s happening while investors and the entire world have one eye on polls three weeks ahead of the U.S. presidential election. Despite all this, volatility is the lowest since late

Like everything else in the Covid-19 world, holiday shopping in 2020 will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Global online sales are expected to grow 30 percent to $940 billion year over year this holiday season–up from 8 percent growth in 2019–which could help retailers make up for lost revenue during the pandemic. That’s according to Salesforce’s 2020 Holiday Forecast, a report that parsed online shopping activity of more than one billion consumers.

For retailers angling to generate as many sales as possible this holiday season, you have to be willing to possibly deploy new strategies, according to Rob Garf, vice president of industry strategy and insights at Salesforce. “Businesses that succeed during the holidays will use everything at their disposal to make shopping easy and safe, including convenient digital ordering, creative and effective fulfillment, and responsive customer service,” said Garf, during a virtual press briefing to discuss the forecast

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Different as they are, Cleveland’s major dance groups are alike in evincing one important quality during the coronavirus pandemic: creativity.

Unable to proceed as normal, to perform for live audiences in their usual venues, all have displayed balletic flexibility and remarkable haste in efforts to amend or wholly redesign their fall seasons.

“We’re talking about a significant change to our lifestyle,” said Margaret Carlson, producing artistic director of Verb Ballets. “We’re experimenting with different ways of reaching audiences. It’s all an experimental process.”

For some, the experiment already has been underway for months. Many spent the summer finding larger studios, learning to dance while wearing masks, and devising ways to connect with patrons online or in other socially distant manners.

Others, meanwhile, have had to act more quickly. They’re now drafting new game-plans for the fall, having waited out the summer in the hope that larger audiences

Modern Warfare’ And ‘Warzone’ In Season 6

September 29, 2020 | technology | No Comments

Season 6 of Modern Warfare and Warzone is almost upon us. You have hours—not days—to wrap up the Season 5 Battle Pass.

Season 6 could be the last season for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare before the launch of Call Of Duty: Black Ops, but Warzone will keep on going strong with a new Black Ops coat of paint. It’s also possible that we’ll get one more Modern Warfare season and that Cold War’s first season won’t start until weeks after the game’s launch, a scenario that I would prefer. Then again, I still think Cold War should have been pushed back to 2021.

We shall see.

For now,
