The scene left behind by the Capitol riots was a devastating one. Smashed furniture, broken American flags, cigarette butts, and other debris were left behind by the mayhem. Rep. Andy Kim felt he had to do something. So he grabbed a trash bag and got down on his knees to help clean up.

Early Thursday morning, he decided to walk around the building, which was still littered with broken glass and debris. “It was really just kind of instinctual. I didn’t really think about it. I just wanted to do something,” the New Jersey Democrat commented.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy says Kim “represents the very best of New Jersey and our nation. A true servant who makes us proud every single day.”

What would it look like?
No doubt it would have hundreds of billions in revenue – more than tech giants like IBM, Facebook, and Google.

It would probably be a leader in cutting-edge technology like smartphones, robotics, e-commerce, and medical equipment.

It would have tens of thousands of unbreakable patents.

It would pay an enormous dividend.

It would be on the verge of dozens of blockbuster announcements that would send the stock higher and higher.

And most of all…

It would trade ultra-cheap – less than $3.

It seems crazy that such a stock exists.

But it does.


Despite the pandemic that just won’t go away, the mounting job losses, and the political turmoil, the stock market is doing well. Earlier this week, all three major averages broke records. The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day over 31,000, while the S&P 500 finished above 3,800 and the Nasdaq soared past 13,000.

So, what’s with the apparent disconnection between current events and stocks?

“There’s not enough stocks to go around,” said Jim Cramer of CNBC. “The stock market is not divorced. The stock market is reflecting the strength of individual companies. There are 500 companies in the S&P. Probably 400 of them are doing better than we thought.”

What else is contributing to the market’s good fortune?


How to FIFO your entire kitchen

To organize your kitchen more efficiently, consider repeating this acronym in your head a few times every time you open the pantry or fridge: FIFO. Your two-syllable chant stands for “first-in, first-out,” and means that you should place items that were first opened (that box of cereal), purchased (yesterday’s broccoli), or consumed (Tuesday night’s leftovers) in the front, and their newer counterparts behind them.

The FIFO food method is important for food safety, but since it requires some initial reorganization of your fridge and pantry, it will likely help create more order throughout your kitchen. By using the FIFO method, you also will likely cut down on food spoilage. Here’s how to start!


Finding snacks that are both healthy and tasty can be difficult, but we were able to find 12 that fit that description.

Pistachios are one of those snacks. They have a great flavor, but they are heart-healthy and are packed full of nutrients and fiber. Pistachios are also known for helping to keep your cholesterol in check. So next time you get a craving for potato chips or other unhealthy, salty snacks, reach for the satisfying crunch of pistachios.

Whisps cheese crisps are also a great substitute for unhealthy, salty, and crunchy snack cravings. The Whisps come in cheddar and parmesan and are low in carbs and calories – making them a great guilt-free snack. What other snacks can you add to your diet that are tasty and healthy?
