Here is a synopsis of all five stocks:

Bull of the Day:

Today’s Bull of the Day and the Bear of the Day share a common theme. They’ve both been disproportionately affected by the outbreak of Covid-19 and their recent reversals of fortune have caused me to completely change my mind about both of them.

I’ve never been a fan of the “multi-level-marketing” (MLM) sales model. Admittedly, that’s as much because of my personal distaste for the practice of hectoring your friends and relatives to buy products as my belief that the bottom-heavy structure encourages exaggerated boom-and-bust

dhita yudha

On Tuesday, a group of nurses joined at the nation’s Capitol to make a powerful and devastating statement. They placed 164 pairs of white shoes were placed on the lawn to represent the number of nurses who have died while working amid and against the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The display served as a vigil for the colleagues lost in the fight, but it wasn’t just a place to grieve—it was a call to action.

Jean Ross, the president of the nationwide union of registered nurses, National Nurses United (NNU), told CBSN on Tuesday that many people have referred to nurses as “heroes” during the pandemic. Then, she said, “Your heroes should not be dispensable. We’re not expendable.”

“We are getting sick. We are dying along with other healthcare workers. There are things our government can do. This is critical,” she continued.

According to a press release from NNU, the union

Elyssa Katz, a Santa Monica mother of three, is growing a matchmaking service to connect families with tutors, or “Zutors”, as she calls them – a word she’s in the process of trademarking.

“The role of a Zutor is a tutor, a nanny, and an angel for a parent,” Katz told the Guardian, someone who can take over parental demands, help children with online homework and take them outside when it’s time for “recess”.

Katz’ clients range from the rich and famous, to everyday people who need childcare because they can’t look after their children while they have to work. Katz said she’s gotten calls from parents as far away as the Hamptons.

For a matchmaking fee that can range from $700 to $1,000 (£549 to £785), Katz and her team will interview tutor candidates, run background and reference checks, then match them to the right

How a New Wave of Podcasts Is Shaking Up Chinese-Language Media

dhita yudha

On June 21, a new podcast appeared on several Chinese and American podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts. Called In-Betweenness, it was recorded by four academics scattered around the world.

The podcast is in Mandarin, and the target audience is Chinese people, but the topic was race in America and across the world—specifically, what’s happening to race relations in the wake of the George Floyd protests. The hosts, based in the United States, Asia and Europe, didn’t shy away from difficult issues. They started the conversation with how Chinese people were characterized as “yellow” in a world order that still favors white Europeans, and ended it with a look at anti-Black racism in China.

Some listeners complained that the first episode was “too theoretical and abstract”—the discussion touched on the French philosopher Franz Fanon’s criticism of Hegel’s master-slave dialectic—but that didn’t prevent people from tuning in. Since it launched, the podcast

Employers are urging women to dress “sexier” and wear make-up during video calls in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown, a new study has found.

The research, carried out by employment law specialist Slater and Gordon, found more than a third of women were asked to put more make-up on or redo their hair, while 27 per cent were asked to dress in a more sexy or provocative way.

Employers routinely justified their requests to dress more seductively by claiming it would “help to win new business” – with 41 per cent of bosses saying this.

Around 40 per cent of employers explained the demands by saying it is important to “look nicer for the team”, while more than a third said it would be more “pleasing to a client”. The demands were said to have left female employees feeling “objectified, demoralised and self-conscious” about the way they look.

Big data may help BOJ guide economy through pandemic pain

dhita yudha

By Leika Kihara

TOKYO (Reuters) – Big data is providing some surprising results for the Bank of Japan and helping ease concerns about pressure on the economy during the coronavirus pandemic, which could influence the way the BOJ manages the world’s most radical monetary stimulus.

By tapping data provided by Google showing people’s movement via mobile phones, the BOJ found that households’ discretionary spending rebounded faster and more vividly in Japan than in other countries after lockdown steps were lifted in May.

Other big data also showed a marked rebound in durable goods sales such as personal computers, which offset some of the weakness in spending on services including leisure, eating-out and travel.

The revelation helped convince BOJ policymakers to conclude the economy has past the worst and did not need immediate, additional monetary support.

“We expect the economy to recover gradually and steadily,” BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said after

While most companies are rethinking and often retrenching their retail strategies, Jason Wu has opened his first global stand-alone boutique in Shanghai.

Originally slated for last year, the opening at the IFC Mall was bumped due to delays with designs and negotiations for the right space. “It happened to be this season; I have to say we were quite lucky. If we opened last year, it would have been a very different conversation,” the designer said.

Noting there has been “a lot of very confident shopping in China” in recent months as stores have reopened amidst COVID-19, Wu said Shanghai is “mostly back to normal.” While the pandemic kept him away from last week’s soft opening for friends, family and special clients, Wu said the store was a year in the making. “Having a little bit of good news in

dhita yudha

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — With Manhattan Beach’s Ryan Rossow at its helm, you know The South Bay Food Initiative is going to feed people in need, and lots of them. The Mira Costa High School Class of 2020 graduate has always been determined and skilled at making things happen.

Several years ago, he started The South Bay Food Initiative, and he’s taken those initial steps and turned a heartfelt project into a non-profit organization, all the while giving other high school students and community members the opportunity to serve those in need by volunteering. This summer, due to COVID-19, Rossow has been extremely busy running the non-profit and schooling the group’s next president, Rex Robins, another MCHS student. Rossow heads to Vanderbilt University soon to begin his freshman year of college.

“Food insecurity affects people from all walks of life,” he told Manhattan Beach Patch. “Here in Los Angeles we
