Crafty Roslyn Moms Launch Mask-Holder Business In Coronavirus Era

ROSLYN, NY — After the coronavirus forced millions of New Yorkers out of work and threatened to close thousands of businesses, two Roslyn moms saw an opportunity. They got creative, launched a new business selling mask-holders, and now have a flourishing enterprise — even getting actress Idina Menzel, known best for voicing Elsa in the hit Disney film “Frozen,” to wear their product.

Andrea Heitner and Andrea Weisbach — they collectively call themselves “The Andreas” — in July came to a realization: masks and face coverings were here to stay. But they weren’t very comfortable, or fashionable for that matter.

Weisbach is the mother to four boys and Heitner is the mother of two boys and a girl. All range in age from 17 to 24. They noticed a pattern — their kids and husbands would leave and immediately have to return home. They forgot their masks. In some cases,

This could be the start of a new era, but is it the one New Era envisioned? | Local News

Four years ago, with a lightness in his voice, Chris Koch said, “I love what I do.”

In 2016, Koch was talking to a Buffalo News reporter over lunch near the downtown headquarters of his family’s company, New Era Cap Co. He smiled and laughed easily during that meal. “When somebody is doing my eulogy,” he said, “they’ll

DraftKings: ESPN Deal Opens Up A New Era For Online Sports Betting (NASDAQ:DKNG)

DraftKings (NASDAQ:DKNG) is one of the main online sports gambling companies with a lot of growth prospects in the future.

The company went public on April 24th, 2020, using the popular SPAC strategy when it merged with Diamond Eagle Acquisition Corporation at an IPO price of $19.

(Source: BizJournals)

Since then, many developments took place, and DKNG stock is on a tear.

I’m going to discuss the main bullish catalysts and present my current valuation and long-term price target for DraftKings stock.

I’ll also discuss both positive as well as risk factors that could affect the stock price in the short term.

As with most new IPOs, we must use forward-thinking with an unbiased mindset that embraces change.

What’s important for the future of DraftKings is what will happen in the future, not the past.

As Warren Buffett once said:

If past history is all there was to the game,

    In a relatively short space of time, The Hurt Business have made quite the impact on Raw. However, they are far from the only group to have dominated WWE in recent years.

    When executed properly, factions can be both effective and entertaining. The Four Horsemen created the blueprint for all future factions that followed, with stables such as The Hart Foundation, D-Generation X and the New World Order finding similar success.

    Evolution is another example of how a faction can further the careers of everyone involved. Whether that will prove to be the case with The Hurt Business remains to be seen, but they are well on their way if the destruction they have left in their wake on Monday nights over the past few months has been any indication.

    They join an

Today’s Awkward Zoom Classes Could Bring a New Era of Higher Education

The fall semester of 2020 is like nothing we have seen before in higher education. Most colleges and universities in the United States are conducting classes either partly or fully online. Many students have chosen to defer or to forego their education completely. Many colleges and universities will suffer extreme financial stress; some–up to 345 colleges, according to one recent estimate–could be forced to close. Faculty are likely to face layoffs unprecedented in the history of U.S. higher education.

These seismic changes are both a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic and a long-delayed response to demographic and economic shifts. But they are also–subtly, and critically–the result of technological change. In fact, if we pull back from the immediate horrors of this moment, the move to online learning has actually been underway since around 2010, when universities and private entrepreneurs first began to experiment with Massive Open Online Courses, or

Q&A: Maintaining business continuity in the isolation era

Strategizing to preserve business continuity and prevent downtime is a continuing quest. From tapes to floppies to flash, companies have stored data in one form or another to restore in the event of catastrophe. Now, as remote operations become the norm, what is considered mission-critical has changed. So too has the speed of recovery.

In a world where the only acceptable downtime figure is zero, solutions must evolve to keep up.

“What we’ve seen is this genre of the ‘lights out data center’ … has become absolutely critical to operating a business today,” said Doc D’Errico (pictured, left), vice president, office of the chief technical officer, at Infinidat Ltd. “This whole concept of business continuity now encompasses not only the operations equipment … but it also encompasses applications that people need access to that they may not have thought of as mission-critical before.”
