NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 31, 2020 / Jenay Rose was fired from almost every job she ever had, except for the last one, which she quit days before her 27th birthday. Her friends and family thought she was making a mistake, walking away from a steady and safe corporate job that she had been recently promoted at. Despite working for one of the biggest brands in the world, Jenay was still unfulfilled, and she knew she had to make a change.

 

“I finally decided to stop pleasing everyone else (my parents, bosses, society) and decided to make myself #1. I quit my good, safe, corporate job to follow a passion for yoga,” Jenay says.

After six months of trying to “figure it out”, her savings were almost gone, and it was a real struggle to live on hourly rates from teaching yoga in LA. Unbeknownst to Jenay,

Anyone who expected the Dodgers to improve their roster before the trade deadline hasn’t paid attention.

In a season in which a shameless cash grab by Major League Baseball bastardized an already questionable postseason format, there was virtually no chance the Dodgers would solve a short-term problem by trading coveted prospects.

There’s an extra round of playoff games this year, with the first round now a three-game series.

However, if the increased chance of something freakish happening in October dissuaded the Dodgers from adding a starting pitcher, it was also a reason to do what the San Diego Padres did.

The Padres made five trades in the two days leading up to the deadline, the most notable of them for

Tata Motors has denied reports it plans to sell its stake in Jaguar Land Rover after a breakdown in talks with the the UK government to secure a financial rescue package.

Emergency funding talks with the UK’s biggest carmaker and Tata Steel, which runs the country’s largest steelworks in Port Talbot, Wales – both owned by the Indian conglomerate Tata Group – recently ended with the UK government deciding both companies needed to rely on private financing to survive.

Following the conclusion of the talks, which ended after the Treasury deemed that Tata Group had the financial strength to not need a taxpayer bailout, reports emerged that it might sell its stake in the struggling carmaker.

“Unconfirmed and unsubstantiated reports have been published by some media alleging that Tata Motors may sell [its] stake in Jaguar Land Rover,” the company said in a statement on Monday. “Tata Motors categorically denies

According to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Corporate Division, the business was founded in 2017 and is a “Domestic Limited Liability Company.” No further information about the business’ function was available.

In the application, Dorceus falsely claimed that his business had an average monthly payroll of $120,000 and 16 employees, the documents said. He’s also accused of saying he claimed he paid $358,819 in wages, tips and compensation during the first quarter of 2019. However, Elevate Horizons didn’t make any quarterly tax filings in 2019, U.S. Attorney BJay Pak said.

The application was approved by a bank in Salt Lake City, which wired Elevate Horizons the money, the documents said. Later in May, Dorceus wrote several checks to people who “were not eligible to receive funds from the PPP loan,” Pak said.

Good morning and good afternoon, everyone. Thank you very much for dialing into our second-quarter earnings call. First, I would like to express the gratitude toward our shore staff and crew members for their extraordinary efforts and dedication, which clearly are defining factors to our strong results.

Despite the recent fall in rates, 2020 will be a very good year for

From a young age, we’re taught to steer clear of three hot topics in conversations: religion, politics and money. And while the latter might seem like the least polarizing of the three subjects, especially these days, it’s actually one that can make us feel the most uncomfortable.

Think about it: Over time, you’ve learned to dismiss your opinionated uncle’s thoughts on politics and you’re a master at brushing aside your parents’ stern views on religion. But there’s something about the topic of money that can really get under your skin. Maybe you’re terrified of asking for a raise or don’t know how to approach your partner about their spending habits without getting angry. Or perhaps you’re not quite sure how to broach the subject of splitting the bill equitably with your group of friends.

Whatever your money conundrum is, you’re not alone. TMRW reached out to several mental health experts

Everything you need to know about stimulus checks, right here.


Angela Lang/CNET

Negotiators on Capitol Hill are now expected to pass either another coronavirus economic relief package or a smaller bill that would send eligible Americans a second stimulus check worth as much as $1,200 to help spur spending during the recession.

The stimulus package negotiations currently have no date to resume despite an exploratory phone call that took place last week between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. But should they restart, we can look to the ins and outs of the first stimulus check as indications of how a second round of payments might be issued, including whether they’re taxable and how to receive money if you don’t usually file with the IRS.

Meanwhile, if you’re still waiting for that first payment, try using the free IRS tracking tool or
