      What’s on the table for the next round of U.S. coronavirus relief

    4. How to Boost Sales When Consumers are Spending Less

      How to Boost Sales When Consumers are Spending Less

      Know me before selling me; that’s what Americans expect from sales reps.

      In a recession, it’s critical to align with customer preferences to avoid losing sales to rivals. Competition is stiff, as people have less disposable incomes. A 2018 study by the Federal Reserve found that 40 percent of Americans can’t come up with $400 to pay for an emergency. And that’s before 40 million people were out of work virtually overnight.

      New Phishing scam targets website owners with free DNSSEC offer

      A very clever phishing campaign targets bloggers and website owners with emails pretending to be from their hosting provider who wants to upgrade their domain to use secure DNS (DNSSEC).

      As it's possible to determine who is hosting a domain for a website via the WHOIS records, IP addresses, and HTTP headers, the email scam is highly targeted and impersonates the specific hosting company used by a website.

      Disneyland Scraps July Reopening Plan as Coronavirus Cases Mount in Orange County

      Disney is no longer planning on opening in July, according to multiple reports. The phased-in reopening was first announced last month with a slated date of July 17, but with rising coronavirus cases in Orange County and beyond, ownership is taking a step back. It doesn’t help that a petition circulated amongst fans, with hundreds of thousands signing on to ask that the park stay closed during the continuing pandemic, and that the workers’ union also threatened to keep some employees off the property out of fear for their safety.

      10 Incredible TED Talks About Time Management You Should Watch Right Now

      Just like millions of other people, I’m hooked on TED Talks. They’re innovative, informative and engaging, but these talks are also intentionally short enough to be consumed when you feel like you only have a couple of minutes in the day. You will learn something new or be reminded of a topic that's essential that you haven't thought about for a while.

      Poll: Most in U.S. Back Masks, Mandatory Isolation

       Most Americans support taking steps to control the spread of the coronavirusnew polling data show. Three measures -- mandatory temperature checks before entering enclosed public spaces, wearing masks once inside, and required isolation for people who test positive -- received the strongest support.

      The new survey from Fairleigh Dickinson University found that overall, more than three-quarters of Americans support those three restrictions.

      PPP loan forgiveness and payroll: Can you give yourself a raise?

      Small business owners who received Paycheck Protection Program cash from the federal government have had many questions about the terms of the loans, including whether they can give themselves a raise in order to allocate a larger percentage of the money toward payroll expenses.

      While the government is working on potentially making the program’s terms more flexible, the CARES Act stipulated that the loan had to be used within 8 weeks of its deposit – and 75 percent of the cash had to be put toward payroll expenses.

      What to Make of the Rebound in the U.S. Jobs Report

      The job market halted its pandemic-induced collapse in May as employers brought back millions of workers and the unemployment rate unexpectedly declined.

      Tens of millions remain out of work, and the unemployment rate, which fell to 13.3 percent from 14.7 percent in April, remains higher than in any previous postwar recession.

      But employers added 2.5 million jobs in May, the Labor Department said Friday, defying economists’ expectations of further losses and offering hope that the rebound from the pandemic-induced economic crisis could be faster than forecast.

      Target Savings To Fine Tune Retirement Investing

      When it comes to retirement investing, many people are in the passenger seat, not behind the wheel. If you’re saving in a 401(k) or 403(b) plan, it’s likely that you’re just along for the ride, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Typically, in retirement plans, your company automatically enrolls you in the plan. Then they start taking money out of your paycheck and saving that money in your name. If you’re fortunate, the company makes a matching contribution as well.
