7 Stay-at-Home Stocks to Buy Amid Second Wave Fears

Apprehensions regarding a second wave of coronavirus with no vaccine yet in sight are likely to compel people across the world to stay at home until and unless it is absolutely necessary to do otherwise. People are expected to follow social distancing norms, wear masks and limit travel for the foreseeable future.

Notably, over the July fourth weekend, the United States registered a whopping 156,000 new coronavirus cases. New coronavirus cases are up 42% in Florida, followed by 40% in Montana, 37% in Virgin Islands, 33% in Idaho, 32% in Arizona, 30% in South Carolina, 29% in Texas and 21% in California during the same period, per the Washington Post.

Schools buy miles of plexiglass ahead of potential reopenings amid coronavirus pandemic

As millions of students return to school — be it K-12 or university — they’ll return to familiar settings in their classroom with one obvious addition: layers of plexiglass.

It remains unclear if schools — universities in particular — can reopen campuses amid a surge of coronavirus cases and new restrictions such as the 14-day quarantines demanded from those who travel from various to the tri-state area of Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.

Sheets of plexiglass would play a big role in a reopening, and schools across the country are investing in the plastic sheet to create a division in common spaces such as in libraries, classrooms — and even school buses — to defend against transmission of coronavirus.

“We’re hitting records… week in week out, at this point from a sales perspective,” Ryan Schroeder, CEO of Plaskolite, one of the country’s biggest plexiglass makers, told Yahoo Finance. “Orders

Whether you’re a bibliophile or not, visiting an independent bookshop is a calming and enjoyable experience. There’s a real joy to surrounding yourself with unread stories – old and new, pre-loved and ready-to-be-loved, first editions and classics – you never truly know what you might find and fall in love with. The quietness and tranquillity also make them an easy place to pass the time.

Amazingly, considering the availability of cheap books online, independent bookshops started to pop up increasingly more last year – with the Booksellers Association reporting that the number of independent bookshops increased for the second year running by 16 per cent.

Yet, owing to coronavirus, all non-essential shops were forced to close their doors on 23 March, so many indie booksellers have been put at risk.

While the latest easing of lockdown restrictions means independent bookstores are now allowed to open, with strict social distancing

From House Beautiful

There are so many sheets on the market these days, but how do you know which ones you’ll actually love sleeping on? This easy guide can help you find well-made, high-quality sheets that’ll make you want to hit snooze every morning. Oh, and it’s not all about thread count—but more on that in a sec.

What Is Thread Count, and Does it Actually Matter?

First, the term “thread count” refers to the number of horizontal (aka weft) and vertical (aka warp) yarns per square inch of a fabric, according to Katie Elks, director of design and product development at Brooklinen. And as for whether it matters, the answer is not really. It can indicate higher quality sheets, but it’s certainly not the most important factor. And it’s not unlikely for thread counts to be exaggerated, or at least not what they
