The Best Face Masks to Buy Online

The fashion world is stepping up in a time of need: Countless companies are now making, selling and donating non-medical grade face masks for daily protection from COVID-19.

Demand for the best face mask options has soared in recent months, in part because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) masks in public settings to help slow the spread of COVID-19. PPE masks are usually made from breathable a fabric like cotton and differ from a surgical mask and N95 respirators that experts say should be reserved for health care workers who are caring for the sick.

In times of crisis, it’s heartwarming to see companies we love and support giving back using the tools and skills they know best. Nordstrom, the largest employer of tailors in the country, has trained its alterations teams to make face masks to distribute to health care

Scotland to offer citizens a $26K interest-free loan to buy a secondhand EV

In the switchover to electric vehicles, governments hand out subsidies to new car buyer to help make the transition a little financially sweeter. In most countries, though, the subsidies only apply for new EVs, but in Scotland that’s no longer the case.

According to Next Green Car, a consumer advice site that helps drivers make the switch to plug-in vehicles, the Scottish government is for the first time extending its Low Carbon Transport Loan to also cover used electric vehicles.

[Read: Are EVs too expensive? Here are 5 common myths, debunked]

For many, buying a new EV is more expensive than a combustion engine car, particularly at the low-end of the market. Luckily, there are government subsidies to take the edge off, but sadly, they don’t extend to used-cars. Making second-hand EVs a little less appealing than their combustion counterparts.

What’s more, EVs — as Tesla has shown —

It has been a miserable time to be a saver – interest rates, which were already poor, have fallen further since the Bank of England cut its rate to a record low. At the same time, workers lucky enough to have kept their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic have saved thousands of pounds – and now they are looking at where to put it. Total retail bank deposits in the UK have jumped by £78bn since the start of the Covid-19 crisis.

Perhaps it is no wonder that online trading in shares by small investors has taken off in recent weeks, with evidence of working-from-home employees dabbling in the markets on the side.

Hargreaves Lansdown, the biggest trading platform, reported a dramatic 221% rise in the number of trades placed between 24 March and 30 June compared with the same period last year. Interactive Investor, another of

Buy food from Black-owned companies at this online shop

Starex Smith wanted to buy Black.

But when the Miami-based food blogger and reviewer went to local grocery stores, he found only the same run-of-the-mill spices, mixes and ingredients. Where, he wondered, were all the flavorful ingredients that made up the cuisines of the Black diaspora from the Caribbean, the South and beyond — made by Black and minority entrepreneurs?

“How do Black entrepreneurs get into stores?” he wondered. “You make great products, but you can’t get in the door.”

He scoured the internet to find the Black-owned food marketplace scattered — but rich. A Black-Mexican tequila distiller. Black-owned wineries in the Anderson Valley. Organic dark chocolate made with cacao imported from Peru, Madagascar and Ecuador. Twenty-one-day, dry-aged beef from cattle raised on Black-owned ranches in East Texas. Vegan Cuban black beans. Ready-to-eat buttermilk biscuits.

So he decided to put it all in one place.

If there’s one thing my mama taught me, it’s to always look for a silver lining. And right now, there (shockingly) is one: Mortgages are more affordable than they have been in a looong time. I hate that it took a pandemic for us to get here, but if being able to actually buy a place of my own is even a remote possibility, it’s not one I’m going to sleep on. Which is why I’m out here reporting this little article for me all of us.

The good news: The two-bed, two-bath you’ve been eyeing might legit be a reality. “A major pro of purchasing a home right now is a lower mortgage interest rate,” explains Institute for Economic Research Studies founder Yolanda Michelle about one of the ways the government is attempting to stimulate the economy. Less interest means you’ll have to

3 Safe Dividend Stocks Yielding 5%; Analysts Say ‘Buy’

Volatility rules, of a sudden, as the markets slipped significantly over the past two trading days. The swoon simply underlines the uncertainty of the times – with COVID-19 waning but not out, and the election polling tightening enough to make the Presidential race a toss-up, volatility should really be the expectation. And that means, simply, that markets might drop suddenly for reasons we just cannot divine.

It’s times like these that make investors glad for dividend stocks. These are the classic defensive investment, stocks that pay out regular, reliable, income streams no matter how the markets are shifting.

Wall Street’s analysts are not shy about recommending strong dividend payers. They like the income stream, they like the cash returns, and so they’ll overlook the lower average share appreciation.

Using TipRanks database, we pinpointed three dividend stocks that have recently gotten the ‘thumbs up’ from their reviewers. They are yielding 5%

Time to Buy a Home? You Need a Strategy

(Bloomberg Opinion) — With 30-year fixed U.S. mortgage rates dropping to below 3% last week, many have decided it’s a good time to buy a house. Existing home sales rose by the most on record in July, while new homes sales jumped to the highest level in almost 14 years.

If you’re now considering buying a home, you need a carefully planned strategy.

The very first step should be to draw up a plan around when you would like to buy, in what location and at what price range. As simplistic as this may sound, not knowing these three things can keep you from saving, or not saving enough, and delay your ability to buy.  

Know how much to save. Financial advisors generally recommend saving for 20% or more of a house purchase price as a down payment. The larger your down payment, the smaller the loan you’ll have to
