Some scammers hide behind sites selling face masks

The face mask has turned into what some call a “nec-cessory” — a necessary fashion accessory. It’s vamping into a clothing category that allows you to express your political voice or highlight hobbies, much like a T-shirt or a baseball cap.

But consumers who shop online for these “nec-cessories” are being warned to look beyond the clever patterns. Some consumers clearly aren’t happy with their shopping experiences.

5 Online Learning Sites That Can Help You Boost Your Resume

If you’re cooped up inside, or have found some spare time that you’d like to use productively, you should consider taking an online course.

Several services allow you to take classes on topics you’re actually interested in without providing any transcripts, or having any previous experience in the subject. Some allow you to purchase individual courses a la carte, while others give you unlimited access to their entire catalogue for a flat fee. Keep in mind you’re getting access to full, pre-recorded classes; you don’t need to block out a specific time of day, or certain days of the week.

online courses we’re recommending differ from tutorials you’ll find on YouTube in a couple of significant ways. First, the instructors selected to teach these classes are trained professionals in their field, and have structured their videos to work like a traditional college course.

Online shopping is not what it was six months ago. We are not immune to the realities retail is facing in the midst of a global pandemic and the economic hardship it has wrought. But truth is, many who can are largely still shopping, and the wheels continue to turn at e-comm sites big and small.

As we begin to see the shape of a new fashion landscape emerge, we turn to those on the ground floor, the buyers, to see what they have in mind for the upcoming season. How are they navigating current business challenges, what are they buying into, and what do they forecast their customers desire now? It’s less a question of the It bag or boot of the season, and more an inquiry into the true essence of what people who love fashion and still want it in their

Both are for serious relationships, but how do the dating sites compare in the UK?

Match vs. eharmony: Both are for serious relationships, but how do the dating sites compare in the UK?
Match vs. eharmony: Both are for serious relationships, but how do the dating sites compare in the UK?

Though society has outgrown most cliché tropes that surrounded online dating in its early years, believing that meeting online can grow into a genuine connection can still be hard. If any dating sites can rekindle your hope that there’s someone out there who wants the same thing you do, Match and eharmony are it.

Technically speaking, online dating amplifies your selection of potential love interests to people you would never have stumbled upon IRL. It’s the obvious next step after you’ve exhausted the qualified singles in your local dating pool, and the pandemic has made online dating an even more ubiquitous way to meet people than it already was. Since social distancing has essentially made hookups with strangers a non-issue, weeding out people who aren’t taking dating seriously is easier than ever.

Google, Amazon Funnel Money to Virus Conspiracy Sites: Study

(Bloomberg) — Digital advertising platforms run by Google, Amazon.com Inc. and other tech companies will funnel at least $25 million to websites spreading misinformation about Covid-19 this year, according to a study released Wednesday.

Google’s platforms will provide $19 million, or $3 out of every $4 that the misinformation sites get in ad revenue. OpenX, a smaller digital ad distributor, handles about 10% of the money, while Amazon’s technology delivers roughly $1.7 million, or 7%, of the digital marketing spending these sites will receive, according to a research group called the Global Disinformation Index.

GDI made the estimates in a study that analyzed ads running between January and June on 480 English language websites identified as publishers of virus misinformation. Some of the ads were for brands including cosmetics giant L’Oreal SA, furniture website Wayfair Inc. and imaging technology company Canon Inc. The data exclude social-media and online-video services, so
