“Distance learning”, “how to create online courses“ and “starting an online business from home” have been three of the hottest search terms on Google in 2020. 

Research and Markets has reported that the online education industry is predicted to become a $325 billion industry by 2025. Many business owners, especially coaches, consultants and online entrepreneurs, are taking action and adding an (additional) passive income stream to their product suites. Others are starting to build their very own e-learning platforms. 

However, many course creators out there are making the same mistakes when creating their online courses. Course creators get very excited about creating their digital products and dive right into creating them, which, in many cases, will result in them creating a product nobody wants to hear and see about. Most forget to consider the simplest steps

Conceived just four months ago to solve a very pandemic-specific problem, Aussie startup COVID Comply has clocked up more than $50,000 in revenues already. But, according to founder Ben Richardson, this contact tracing tech is no one-trick pony.

Once a business signs up and adds its location, the platform automatically applies all the regulations required for their state — both in terms of what details need to be collected, and in terms of data privacy rules.

That also means it automatically deletes information as soon as required.

Then, the user can further configure the service in line with their own business’ needs.

FAIRFIELD, CT — Last year, Allyson Mandelbaum went shopping for a hat.

The busy Fairfield mom envied her husband’s ability to simply throw on a ball cap and look put together. She searched for a baseball-style hat that she liked, but found most were too big or featured team names or other logos.

“I felt like they were all made to fit men,” she said.

Mandelbaum decided that if she couldn’t find a ball cap she wanted to wear, she would make one. With that, her business, Shady Lady, was born.

After months designing hats and testing samples, Mandelbaum launched Shady Lady’s website in June.

“I wanted them to be fun and bright colors, and kind of a little in your face,” said Mandelbaum, who described her hats as a fashion-forward option for women who want a cute, casual cap.

Her most popular offering is called the Peaceful Lady, a

  • Goldman Sachs’ former CEO Lloyd Blankfein told CNBC on Thursday that a “wash of free money is clearly creating bubble elements in the markets.” 
  • The banking titan blamed low interest rates for creating free money for large investors. 
  • Blankfein also cited speculation in the growing SPAC market: “Look at SPACs and how much money  is available on the basis of somebody’s reputation as opposed to a business plan.”

Former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein told CNBC on Thursday that a “wash of free money” due to low interest rates is “clearly creating bubble elements in the markets.”

“Given that money is kind of free, it presumably is not being allocated in a disciplined way, and so there are bubble elements to this,” Blankfein said. “Look at the credit market — people are lending to what historically would have been weak credits for

SINGAPORE – Some of the world’s biggest banks in commodity trade financing are creating a digital trade finance registry in Singapore to try and mitigate the risk of trade fraud and boost transparency after losing billions of dollars due to a spate of defaults.

Banks have reduced their commodities business this year to cut risk following collapses, including that of Singapore’s Hin Leong Trading (Pte) Ltd, which shocked lenders after instances of financial trouble were laid bare by the coronavirus crisis.

In a joint statement issued on Tuesday, DBS Group DBSM.SI and Standard Chartered STAN.L said they are leading a group of 12 other banks in Singapore to create and conduct a central database to access trade transactions financed across banks.

Tyler Mccumber putts on the seventh hole during the second round of the Wyndham Championship golf tournament at Sedgefield Country Club on Friday, Aug. 14, 2020, in Greensboro, N.C.

AP

Three weeks into the new PGA Tour season, Tyler McCumber might be the first example of how the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down golf for three months can provide second chances.

McCumber had the best Sunday of his young PGA Tour career at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. He was bogey-free in the final round with a few superb par saves and a 25-foot birdie putt he rammed into the cup on the last hole for a 66. It looked as though it might get him into a playoff.

But then Hudson Swafford hit 6-iron to 10 feet for birdie on the 17th and won with an 8-foot par putt on the 18th.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives — how we work, how we maintain our health, how we learn, how we socialize and recreate, how we spend money, how we do business, and how we get around. With the virus suddenly making indoor activities a lot riskier, people have taken to the streets — literally. Outdoor seating, dining, sidewalk sales, and more have popped up in towns and cities across the state. The concept of ‘complete streets’ that meet the needs of everyone is no longer an academic planning vision but rather a Main Street reality.

Here in North Jersey we’ve seen towns quickly transform and use sidewalks and streets in creative ways as never seen before. Car use has been restricted to create more street space for walking, bicycling and outdoor dining. These changes help people get around while maintaining social distancing;

SHANGHAI, China, Sept. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global media agency, Spider Media recently released an in-depth insight into the world of Chinese ecosystems. Taking a look at how these ecosystems are formed, operate and develop, the team presented a comparative analysis of three very different industries and styles. The report specifically outlines how food logistics, big-tech and manufacturing oftentimes use similar ideas to organize themselves into highly-efficient ecosystems of interdependence.

As the undisputed global leaders in manufacturing, China has for years been perfecting the model of open innovation within large business ecosystems. Adding to much of the country’s economic rise over recent decades, these huge ecosystems are comprised of a great number of smaller component parts that allow for ultra-specialization at each individual point in the business cycle.  
Oftentimes spanning multiple verticals, these ecosystems are seen everywhere from digital
