Goldman Sachs: 2 Strong Value Stocks to Buy Now

Out on Wall Street, elections are the talk of the town. As President Trump’s battle against COVID-19 wages on, Biden has taken the lead in the race to the White House, with a Reuters poll conducted on October 2-3 putting the former Vice President ahead by 10 percentage points. Against this backdrop, fears of a blue wave (a Democrat-controlled presidency, Senate and House) are washing onto the Street. However, Goldman Sachs believes a blue wave might not be such a bad thing for the U.S. economy. “All else equal, such a blue wave would likely prompt us to upgrade our forecasts.

Mashable’s series explores how the challenges of today will dramatically change the near future. 


Annika Kapur used to go to the gym five or six days a week. 

Then the coronavirus pandemic hit. Stuck at home, she started using Tempo Studio. The nearly $2,000 fitness machine features a 42-inch display, room for 16 weight plates, and a 3D sensor that gives users feedback on their form. 

“For the first month, I felt like, ‘Wow, I never need to go to the gym again,'” Kapur said.

Not into lifting weights? Former gym rats can buy smart rowers, boxing gloves, mirrors, kettlebells, and even vertical climbing machines. And, of course, there is Peloton, which just released a new exercise bike and treadmill and saw sales increase by 172 percent over the last fiscal quarter. 

Meanwhile, gyms and other fitness studios are struggling. Since the pandemic began, both 24 Hour Fitness and Gold’s

5 Carrot Juice Benefits and Recipes To Make It At Home

The wellness world has evolved immensely the past few decades. (Biggest understatement ever, right?) It wasn’t that long ago where tracking steps (and fitness trackers themselves) was a brand-new concept, and athleisure wasn’t even a word, much less a lucrative clothing category. But healthy juices have long been a staple among the health set—including carrot juice, one of the OG flavors.

However, unlike some other juicing trends, carrot juice benefits are the real deal. It’s no wonder that the drink has stood the test of time as a go-to beverage, despite so much else changing within the wellness world.

Here, registered dietitian Kim Melton, RD, highlights the benefits of carrot juice, which is exactly what it sounds like: juice produced with carrots. Plus, get tips on how to make sure you’re buying one that’s truly healthy and see recipes for how to make your own at home.

Why the new doctor’s office is your own home

What do you do when you can’t go to the doctor’s office? As the COVID-19 pandemic has forced people around the world to stay at home and avoid crowded and possibly contaminated areas, this has become a big concern.

The pandemic has spurred a new wave of innovation, shedding new light on online diagnosis and remote care technologies that have been around for a while but have been limited to the doctor’s office.

The Dutch startup community, one of the fastest-growing technology hubs in Europe, has played a key role in developing new tools and facilities to make sure doctors can monitor and care for patients remotely. Techleap.nl, a non-profit responsible for accelerating the Dutch startup ecosystem, has helped nurture and grow health-tech startups that are now providing remote care services in the Netherlands and beyond.

Trump team relaxed training rules for nursing home staff just as pandemic hit

Shortly after the first coronavirus outbreak ravaged a nursing home in Kirkland, Wash., the Trump administration moved to fulfill a longstanding industry goal — waiving the requirement that nurse’s aides receive 75 hours of training and allowing people who study only eight hours online to become caregivers during the pandemic.

The industry had been fighting for years to reduce training requirements, saying they make it harder to recruit staff. The day after the administration announced the change, the industry rolled out a free online training program for certifying the new role — called a “temporary nurse aide” — that has since been adopted by at least 19 states.

Now, after more than 55,000 nursing home residents and workers across the country have died from the coronavirus, advocates for older adults and families of residents say they fear the change was premature, and contributed to the spread of the disease. Nurse’s
