How’s your back? If you’re like most of us, these last few months of less activity (and more staying in) have meant noticeable aches and pains. Add to that the stress of sleeping on an old mattress and you might find your back in a constant state of discomfort. 

While core exercises are never a bad idea, no amount of Zoom fitness will fix your back if your bed is the root of the problem. Of course now is not the time to visit mattress stores and plop down Goldilocks-style in search of a match. But it

ETFs to Ride the Wave of 3 Key Coronavirus-Led Trends in 2H20

The year 2020 is seeing some new investment areas that became the hottest trends, thanks to the coronavirus outbreak. These trends are largely the by-products of quarantine measures and efforts to minimize the human-to-human contact, which are absolutely necessary to control the pandemic. Notably, new coronavirus cases hit another record high at 50,023 on Jul 1 with around 23 states halting the reopening process in the United States (per a CNN report). In such a scenario, it seems like these trends are here to stay in the second half of 2020 as the fear of a second wave peaking in the weeks ahead looms large.

Strikingly, even as the rebooting of U.S. economy happens in phases and social-distancing restrictions are being eased, people increasingly opting for contactless operations. It’s largely because the pandemic brought about some changes in lifestyle and influenced Americans’ preferences.

‘How the hell are we going to do this?’ The panic over reopening schools

Pediatricians say schools should strive to bring kids back to classrooms. Teachers unions are on the verge of revolt, in fear of infections. Local school districts are struggling with everything from technology to staging schools for socially distanced learning.

And Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is largely on the sidelines, saying the coronavirus back-to-school planning is a state and local issue.

No wonder parents across America are freaking out.

The CDC issued additional guidance this week on safely reopening schools, with infections spiking in the South and West. Some education leaders fear the guidelines are being disregarded, casting doubt anew on how the new school year will even be able to launch. Yet the beginning of the school year is nearing and worried parents are wondering if they will be able to count on in-person classes resuming by the time they must return to work, inextricably tying school reopenings to the

virus, streaming apps spark fears for cinemas

A Bollywood actor’s face tattooed on his arm, Sandeep Bacche’s devotion shocks few in India where stars enjoy semi-divine status. But even here the hallowed silver screen may be losing its shine to streaming services and pandemic fears.

“Whenever things get better and theatres begin operations, I will watch three movies a day for sure just as a way to celebrate,” said the Mumbai rickshaw driver, who is recovering from the virus himself.

But others may not join the party.

With cinemas shut for months due to a coronavirus lockdown, and little prospect they will reopen soon, frustrated Bollywood producers have turned to the likes of Amazon, Netflix and Disney+ Hotstar to release films online.

“Gulabo Sitabo”, starring Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan, premiered on Amazon Prime last month. Other Hindi movies have followed a similar route, as have the huge Telugu-, Tamil- and Malayalam-language film industries.

This has sparked fury
