13-year-old Trey Brown is on a mission to make his fashion line a household name

At only 13 years old, Trey Brown has already accomplished so much.

He is the CEO of his own clothing brand SPERGO, inspires his almost-30,000 Instagram followers daily with videos and quotes, has had his face on a billboard in Times Square, has chatted on the phone with celebrities and made enough money within the first year of launching his company that he helped his mom retire. 

Brown didn’t anticipate any of these when he started SPERGO in Jan. 2018. He told In The Know that he turned to fashion designing after witnessing the violence going on around Philadelphia. 

“There was kids killing kids. I just wanted to show the youth, look, you could do this. You could get on a jet without being violent, without touching any drugs,” Brown said. “A lot of times in Philadelphia, where I come from, there’s not a lot of possibility, and I want

Stocks make modest recovery despite virus worries

European stocks made modest gains Thursday, one day after a brutal selloff, but US indices struggled on continued worries about a resurgence of coronavirus and mounting job losses in the US.

Oil also recovered some of Wednesday’s five percent tumble on increasing infections stoking demand worries, just as the latest data showed a big jump in US stockpiles for a third week.

Asia extended losses after heavy overnight falls on Wall Street, amid holiday closures in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

There were hefty losses in New York and across Europe on Wednesday on heightened fears of a second wave of the deadly COVID-19 outbreak.

“Stock markets have edged up today after Wednesday’s falls, but there is still a lingering sense of caution over the signs of rising infection rates in the US,” said Chris Beauchamp, chief market analyst at online trading firm IG.

European markets held onto their gains until

On Trial: Tempo Studio at-home fitness system

The Tester: Brandon Carte, former frequent gym-goer who has been stuck in a workout rut.

Biden, Trump stage rare dueling events in pandemic era

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — Both President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, are swinging through key battleground states on Thursday, presenting dueling events in a way that hasn’t happened much in the age of coronavirus and that will showcase their contrasting styles in response to the pandemic.

The former vice president is meeting with families he says benefited from the Obama administration’s signature health care law in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and then giving a speech on how he would improve broader access to health insurance. That comes as Biden has spent weeks arguing that the pandemic remains a clear and present danger that Trump is trying to wish away amid a desire to jump-start a crippled economy.

Trump is visiting Marinette in rural Wisconsin for a private tour of a shipyard and participating in a town hall to be broadcast by Fox News Channel from an airport in Green

Liberal groups are restarting door-to-door campaigning. But not all think it’s the right time.

Convinced they can do it safely and under pressure to match Republicans, a selection of Democratic-aligned groups are moving ahead with plans to restart their door-to-door voter canvassing operations, even amid a pandemic that has largely halted in-person campaigning since the spring.

Not everyone in the party is convinced it’s a good idea.

Working America, a political organizing arm of the AFL-CIO, plans to partially resume its canvassing effort next month to help elect Joe Biden and down-ballot Democrats, according to executive director Matt Morrison, with a test run in Michigan before expanding to other locations across the country if all goes well.

It’s joined by another group, the Progressive Turnout Project, which this past weekend began sending volunteers and staffers to knock on doors in Colorado and plans to expand to seven additional states this coming weekend.

Officials with both organizations say they are taking significant steps to make

“I escaped an abusive relationship during lockdown”

From Cosmopolitan

Sophie*, 21, from Norwich, explains how she left her abusive boyfriend during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.

“I met Lewis* when I was 18 and he was 21. I’d just got out of a relationship and we’d been friends for a while before it turned into something more.

The first year was amazing. Lewis was really funny and charismatic, and everyone liked him, but he was having issues with his flat, so he moved in with me at my dad’s house. We lived near the river, so we’d spend time going for long walks along the footpath and meeting up with local friends for picnics. It felt like a healthy relationship.

Then, after a year or so, things started to change. If I wanted to stay out with friends after he’d finished at work, it’d turn into a big drama and we’d argue. Soon,

I’ll admit, I didn’t hear the phrase “aging in place” until late last year when I coached a TED talk about the importance of it. The speaker I worked with is a geriatric and orthopedic trauma surgeon (I know, what a mouthful) who taught me about the obstacles people face within their own homes. She was concerned mainly about smoke alarms and grab bars, and her data was compelling. What stuck out with me most, though, is that we’re all susceptible to these dangers. If you fall and need to have surgery on your leg, your mobility is impacted.

The CDC describes the notion of “aging in place” as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely,

4 Delectable Packaged Food Stocks to Nourish Your Portfolio

The U.S. packaged food industry appears to be on a roll, courtesy of the rising demand for essentials amid the coronavirus-led stockpiling as well as increased at-home consumption. Well, the stay-at-home orders and other social distancing measures issued in March have highlighted a paradigm shift in consumer spending patterns, including increased buying of packaged food and related items. With more Americans staying at home, food consumption and demand has gone up significantly.

Incidentally, the ready-to-cook and other packaged food and beverage items are moving off the shelves faster than usual, whereas away-from-home food options have been off the table. Increased stay-at-home, work-from-home and dine-at-home trends have majorly stimulated demand for packaged food products, as they are easy to make, comfort food and also considered safer compared to outside food. Additionally, these non-perishable items can be piled up and stored, saving consumers from going out to buy food too often.

A Reversion to the Average Yield Could Mean Big Returns

With so many companies pulling guidance due to the Covid-19 pandemic, investors are left without highly important information to use in analyzing the value of a stock, including earnings per share estimates. While analysts can help fill in the gaps, it might be a fool’s errand to rely on these estimates with so much uncertainty.

I often find it helpful to compare the current dividend yield against the stock’s historical average yield in these cases. Using this method allows me to see what a stock would be worth if it reverted to its medium and long-term average yields.

Usually, stocks trading in excess of the average yield have some issue in the business that has caused the share price to decline. Declining fundamentals can be a red flag as an investor, but if the business has some areas that are growing, then the stock can be an attractive investment over
