Aditya Singh, a California man, has been charged with felony criminal trespass to a restricted airport area and misdemeanor theft. At a court hearing on Sunday, a judge ruled that the Orange, California man could be released if he paid $1000. Singh was prohibited from setting foot in the airport.

During the hearing, Assistant State’s Attorney Kathleen Hagerty said that Singh was spotted by two United Airlines employees, who asked him for identification. Sing showed them a badge that belonged to an operations manager at the airport who had reported it missing back in October.

When Singh was taken into custody, he told police that he was scared to return home due to the virus. He claimed that he found the badge and other passengers at the airport had given him food.

Before Cook County Judge Susanna Ortiz granted Singh bail, she stated she was clearly troubled that someone could remain in a secured area for so long at the airport without anyone noticing.

Paul Mampilly is a Wall Street legend.
(Barron’s crowned his hedge fund as the “world’s best” and Kiplinger ranked it in the top 1%.)But a few years ago, he left Wall Street.

“I just grew tired of helping the rich get richer,” Paul explains. “So I started sharing my No. 1 investment picks with Main Street Americans.”

And his No. 1 stock picks have been phenomenal.

In 2016, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Tableau Software — shot up 199%.
In 2017, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Foundation Medicine — shot up 524%.
In 2018, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Roku — shot up 393%.
In 2019, Paul’s No. 1 pick — MTech Acquisitions — shot up 332%.

But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

Stock futures were signaling strong gains before the market reopened after Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.7%, while the S&P 500 climbed 0.8% and the Nasdaq jumped 1%. 

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, Boeing, and American Airlines all saw increases this morning as investors anticipated the additional stimulus and quicker vaccine rollout that President-elect Joe Biden promised.

Later this morning, investors will analyze earnings reports from Bank of America and Goldman Sachs. This evening, Netflix will release its own fourth-quarter data.

“In the week ahead, global economic data and U.S. earnings reports will be plentiful, but what matters is whether President-Elect Biden’s Inauguration on 1/20 occurs peaceably and whether Republicans in the Senate send signals of constructive cooperation or of a 2020 replay,” said one strategist.


How to make a better to-do list

There are so many things to do and so little time in which to do them. But life becomes a bit less stressful when all its tasks, chores, and responsibilities are written down to help with organization. But which way is best? That depends. The point of a to-do list is to make life clearer, not further complicate it, so try a few different options to discover which method of list-making helps you stay organized.

First, you should strive to personalize whatever method you adopt. That will streamline the to-do list process and make it even more efficient. You can use apps, traditional calendars, or a literal list on a notepad – whatever works best for you.

And be sure to prioritize your tasks. There’s no point in lumping in goals that need to be accomplished today with things that can wait until later. The sooner you tackle priority tasks, the better.

Finally, remember that a to-do list is supposed to make your life less stressful. If it isn’t doing that, then you need to reevaluate your methods.

Let’s be honest, most of us need a cup of coffee, or more, to get through the day. But, if you add ingredients that are packed with sugar and fat, your daily cup of joe isn’t very healthy. So, how can you make your cup of coffee a little healthier?

Instead of adding artificial sweeteners and flavorings, opt for real ones. Artificial sweeteners can include harmful substances and chemicals, while artificial flavorings are usually packed with sugar. Instead of using those, opt for real vanilla, honey, and even maple syrup to sweeten and flavor your coffee.

Another way to make your coffee healthier is to add flavor to the coffee grounds before brewing. Get creative with cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices to give your coffee a bold flavor that won’t need as much sugar. How else can you make drinking coffee daily more healthy?

Scrabble has become a staple of the American household since it first went up for sale in the states back in 1938 under the name “Criss-Crosswords.”

But it wasn’t until much later than that, January 19, 1955 to be exact, that the board game became an international sensation. Because it was on this date that sales first began in both the United Kingdom and Australia.

J.W. Spears and Sons was the firm in charge of the international roll-out.

Here are 14 other surprising facts you might not know about the Scrabble board game.
