10 Stocks to Buy as They Ride a Coronavirus Tailwind

[Editor’s note: “10 Stocks to Buy as They Ride a Coronavirus Tailwind” is regularly updated to include the most relevant information available.]

After suffering one of the worst declines in history, the investment markets mounted a comeback in the second half of March. Even this small piece of optimism appears to be failing, though, due to enormous fundamental pressures. Nevertheless, not everything is melting down. Certain industries may offer what I’ll call, for lack of a better phrase, coronavirus stocks to buy.

For this list of publicly traded companies, I’m focusing on names that are mostly relevant to the present crisis. While virtually all sectors have printed red ink, a few individual companies either have performed surprisingly well amid the chaos or have pertinent businesses that are on discount. Additionally, many of these coronavirus stocks to buy offer upside potential once we get through this awful season.

FDA authorizes emergency use of remdesivir

Though the White House has not held an official coronavirus task force briefing all week, President Donald Trump has taken the opportunity at other scheduled appearances to take questions and applaud his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic as a “spectacular job.”

At the tail-end of a response to a question Thursday about the president’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner declaring the government’s response to COVID-19 a “success story,” Trump touted the U.S. death total, which has climbed past 60,000, as “very strong.”

“Our death totals, our numbers per million people, are really very, very strong. We are very proud of the job we have done,” he said in the East Room event on “protecting America’s seniors.”

Trump’s push to reopen comes as the country’s economy sees its largest decline since the Great Recession, unemployment claims break records and as a November presidential election approaches.

In an unannounced event, … Read More

Larry Joe Campbell Sells Palos Verde Peninsula Home at a Small Loss

Larry Joe Campbell Sells Palos Verde Peninsula Home at a Small Loss

Click here to read the full article.

Veteran character actor Larry Joe Campbell, probably best known to TV audiences for his role on the long running 2000s sitcom “According to Jim,” has sold a spacious, family-sized home on the affluent Palos Verdes Peninsula, just west of Long Beach, Calif., and about 35 miles due south of Beverly Hills. Unfortunately for Campbell, the slightly more than $2.1 million sale price is well below the almost $3 million original asking price and close to $200,000 below the $2.32 million tax records show was paid for the property nearly 15 years ago.

With what listing descriptions aptly describe as “spellbinding” views that sweep over the surrounding community and across the Pacific Ocean to Santa Catalina Island, the sprawling residence — a two-story version of a of classic California ranch house — was built in the late 1970s on a sloped parcel of just

Why We're Having Vivid Dreams in Quarantine During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Why We’re Having Vivid Dreams in Quarantine During the Coronavirus Pandemic

why are dreams so weird during covid 19 quarantine

If you’ve been suffering through weird, vivid dreams since we started staying at home, there are two things you should know: You’re definitely not alone, as social media users have made #pandemicdreams trend on sites like Twitter for weeks, and it’s absolutely normal, according to sleep experts. Even if you feel like you rarely experienced dreams before the novel coronavirus pandemic, there’s a good chance that unavoidable changes in sleep patterns have led you to feeling like you’re living through frightening or downright peculiar scenarios in your dreams. And stress may also be influencing the strange dreams (or terrifying nightmares!) you’re having, even if you are getting more sleep in your new schedule than you did before.

In fact, a new survey conducted by King’s College in London found that a majority of people in the United Kingdom are getting as much or more sleep now

How To Kick Your Coronavirus Insomnia, According To A Sleep Doctor

How To Kick Your Coronavirus Insomnia, According To A Sleep Doctor

The first few times I had trouble sleeping during the coronavirus pandemic, I chalked it up to my lack of activity. Aside from a walk or two outside, the farthest distance I was covering each day was from the bedroom to the kitchen. I had pent-up energy, I thought, which was why my ZZZs had been light and fitful.

But after a couple of weeks of the same not-great shuteye, I started to suspect there was more going on. My friends were having the same trouble. Turns out, my trouble coping with coronavirus anxiety was likely playing a big role in my sudden insomnia.

“We’ve seen more people worried, more people with anxiety… and more insomnia,” says Seema Khosla, MD, the medical director of the North Dakota Center for Sleep, who has been seeing patients virtually over the past month or two.

Of course, not logging enough hours in bed

5 unsung heroes volunteer to clean COVID-19 rooms

5 unsung heroes volunteer to clean COVID-19 rooms

Doctors and nurses on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic have rightly been hailed as heroes for putting their lives at risk to help others. But hospitals are full of other unsung heroes who are also going above and beyond — like the cleaning staff. A team of five housekeepers is being singled out for praise at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital after they volunteered to clean COVID-19 patients’ rooms.

The hospital’s environmental services manager, Erasmo Ramos, knew it might be challenging to find employees willing to take on the task. The environmental services team plays a critical role in protecting patients and employees. Through careful cleaning, they help prevent the spread of the virus — although they risk exposure themselves.

Five courageous staff members volunteered. “I’m really happy that this team came together and told me, ‘Erasmo, we can clean the rooms,'” Ramos said in a press release

Kids struggling right now? Here's how to keep them physically and mentally afloat

Kids struggling right now? Here’s how to keep them physically and mentally afloat

COVID-19 has turned the world upside down for everyone. When it comes to kids, this can be especially difficult. School is online or taught from home, some states have had to curtail normal outdoor activity, and screen time is likely much higher than any adult in their lives would like. It can feel overwhelming to parent in this environment.

Perhaps at the top of most parents’ concerns is the physical and mental health implications that come along with less time spent outdoors. In city environments in particular, access to green space is off the table for now. Kids have energy to burn and a need for movement.

The links between nature and mental health are well documented. One study in particular highlighted the fact that green space in childhood can have long-lasting benefits into adulthood. While that might seem unsettling at a time when your kids can’t be outside, take

Can tech-savvy tools take down illegal wildlife trafficking?

Can tech-savvy tools take down illegal wildlife trafficking?

The devastating impact of the multibillion-dollar illegal wildlife trade has never been more acute than in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Illegal wildlife trafficking, worth an estimated $23bn annually, has threatened nearly 9,000 species with extinction and for decades served as a low-risk source of income for criminal organisations and terrorist groups.

The Covid-19 outbreak, which has led to more than 221,000 deaths, 3m infections and economic collapse, has focused global attention on the labyrinthine enterprise of wildlife trafficking and how to bring those networks down.

The virus likely originated at a “wet” market in Wuhan, China and early research suggests a pangolin was the intermediate host in the transmission of the zoonotic disease from bats to humans. Pangolins, or “scaly ant-eaters”, are the world’s most trafficked animal. Their scales are used in traditional medicine and their meat is prized as a delicacy, primarily in China and Vietnam.
