A van collided with a car, smashing an outdoor dining structure before going onto the sidewalk in New York City Friday morning, injuring seven people, including two young children, police said.

The van first hit a car carrying two people on Second Avenue between East 51st and East 50th streets in midtown Manhattan. The collision smashed an empty outdoor dining structure, causing debris to hit two children, a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old.

The van continued before going onto a sidewalk at East 49th Street and Second Avenue and colliding with a fruit stand, where three pedestrians were hit. The five adults and two children all suffered only minor injuries, thankfully, and were taken to Bellevue Hospital.

It was determined this was the cause of the accident.

This is your Saturday morning market update

This week has been a brutal one for the stock market broadly, and it’s been especially painful for investors in the Nasdaq Composite. Many Nasdaq stocks have found themselves at the epicenter of a vicious market rotation.

At times yesterday, it looked as though the Nasdaq would be prone to a large correction or even a crash. However, even with a number of volatile high-growth companies, the Nasdaq also has some solid stalwarts that are ready to provide some reassurance even in the toughest of times.

These two tech giants pulled the Nasdaq back from the brink yesterday.

Nostradamus, a 16th-century French astrologer, is best known for his book “Les Prophéties,” which is a collection of the many prophecies he made.

He is credited with predicting the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Second World War.

And he eerily predicted that in 2021, a scientist would create a biological weapon and produce a virus that can turn humankind into zombies.

With a year like 2020 and the way 2021 started, it wouldn’t surprise many if the insanity continued. And of course, in true fashion of the last year, that isn’t the only alarming event he predicted will shape the future of humanity this year. If you remember Thursday evening edition’s top story, well, he predicted that as well.

But don’t worry, everyone’s favorite knight in shining armor is coming to our rescue with survival tips. Don’t just take my word for it, I mean, when has their advice ever led anyone astray?

Need an actual break this weekend? Here are some great, fun ways to keep the kids busy so you can rest

While I’m sharing this article with you so that you can get a little actual rest and relaxation over the weekend, the best part about these tips is that they work just about any day, all day, every day throughout the year. So, you can put them to work so you can catch some extra sleep over the weekend, or you can dust them off during the week while you’re working from home. 

Regardless of when you decide to use them, the first thing you have to do is know about that – and that’s where I come in. 

And best of all – none of them require you to go out and buy complicated toys, gadgets or really spend anything. Most of the “out of the box” tools they encourage are probably already right there at home – or maybe out in the garage. 

But what you will need is a little time to set up the prep work. After all, when you need a break, you don’t always have time to orchestrate it. That’s why if you have these solutions set up in advance, making it happen will be so much easier.

So, here’s what you need on hand and what you’ll do with it once you have it.

WHO says pandemic has caused more ‘mass trauma’ than WWII and will last for years

The World Health Organization’s Director-General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, was asked about whether or not countries should be taking the pandemic’s impact on the economy and mental health more seriously as they navigate in these times. 

“After the second World War, the world has experienced mass trauma, because (the) second World War affected many, many lives. And now, even with this Covid pandemic, with bigger magnitude, more lives have been affected,” he stated at a press conference Friday. “Almost the whole world is affected, each and every individual on the surface of the world actually has been affected.”

“And that means mass trauma, which is beyond proportion, even bigger than what the world experienced after the second World War,” he added, noting the effect on mental health. “And when there is mass trauma, it affects communities for many years to come.”
