The spread of coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19, is creating an unprecedented unemployment situation. In some states, nonessential businesses have been ordered to cease operations, and workers across the country are losing their jobs and income.
A new Ipsos survey commissioned by Newsy found that about a third of workers have lost income in the past week. A similar number (37%) feel they will lose income in the next month. And according to the Economic Policy Institute, 14 million jobs could be gone by summertime.
If you suspect a layoff is imminent, it’s important to prepare for that possibility while you still have an income. Losing a job is scary and stressful, but you can mitigate the damage by taking as much control of the situation as possible now.

THE HISTORY OF MONEY PART 1
Let’s Go FORWARD
Tell someone you are going to a convention of accountants and you might get a few yawns, yet money and how it works is probably one of the most interesting things on earth.
It is fascinating and almost magical how money appeared on our planet. Unlike most developments we enjoy, which can be traced back to a source, civilisation or inventor, money appeared in places then unconnected all over the world in a remarkably simular way.
Consider the American Indians using Wampum, West Africans trading in decorative metallic objects called Manillas and the Fijians economy based on whales teeth, some of which are still legal tender; add to that shells, amber, ivory, decorative feathers, cattle including oxen & pigs, a large number of stones including jade and quartz which have all been used for trade across the world, and
If you are planning an international trip, you should consider getting travel insurance to cover yourself against accidents or illness while you’re abroad. Even if you already have medical insurance back home, it may not cover you when traveling outside the United States, or if it does cover you that coverage may not be enough.

Carefully examine the policy to make sure that it covers what you need it to cover, including cancellation if you or a close family member gets sick. Depending on the policy, trip cancellation insurance
If you’re planning to run an air conditioner at home this summer, you’re absolutely spoiled for choice. Compact and portable window and wall units offer an affordable entry-point cooling solution for smaller spaces, while ductless split systems balance economy with efficiency and central cooling is both the most effective and the most expensive of the lot. The costs to run whichever type of AC you choose will vary depending on your city electric rates, how often you run the unit and how your AC performs regarding energy efficiency.
One thing that’s invariable is that running an air conditioner will increase your power bill. Electric utility providers typically charge for power by the kilowatt hour or kWh. As of 2018 rates, Choose Energy reports that the average U.S. price per kWh is 13.2 cents.
It doesn’t take an HVAC expert to see that the costs range drastically depending on your setup,
