After its best month since the beginning of 1987, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is off to a strong start for December. This morning, its stock futures were up 1.2%, or 349 points. In November, it increased by nearly 12%.

The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite also saw gains last month, setting records neither index has seen since April. They came in at 10.8% and 11.8% respectively.

Much of last month’s success was bolstered by positive vaccine news. Pfizer may even be able to begin distributing their solution in Europe before year’s end.

Still, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell warned that “the rise in new [virus] cases, both here and abroad, is concerning and could prove challenging for the next few months. A full economic recovery is unlikely until people are confident that it is safe to re-engage in a broad range of activities.”

It’s no secret that a good night’s rest is beneficial to your health, but did you know that getting plenty of sleep can also boost your productivity?

When we don’t get enough sleep, our most essential mental faculties are blunted. We have a hard time focusing, our reaction times slow down significantly, and we’re more likely to make mistakes.

Without proper sleep habits, we become terrible problem solvers with underperforming memory. Humans just don’t do well when they don’t have enough sleep. Be sure to read on to learn more about how changing your sleep habits will improve your home and work productivity!


There are tons of diets to choose from, so how do you choose the one that’s best for you?

Health experts suggest starting with your “why” for starting a diet. Are you trying to lose weight? Are you trying to improve your overall health? What is it that you are trying to achieve? Your “why” can help determine the diet that is right for you. For example, if you’re trying to reduce your risk of diabetes, a low carb diet might be best for you, whereas other diets are better for other health goals.

Another thing to consider when picking a diet is how flexible it will be for you. It’s important to choose a diet that is not too restrictive, as a strict diet can lead to frustration and a higher chance of not sticking with the plan. What else do you need to consider when choosing a diet?

What the world’s first assembly line looked like

Today was a pretty momentous day back in 1913. That’s because, on December 1, 1913, Henry Ford installed the first moving assembly line for the mass production of an entire automobile.

To put this achievement in perspective, a job that used to take his workers more than 12 hours to accomplish was whittled down to a previously unthought-of one hour and 33 minutes.

And ever since that moment, the world has never been the same. 

Because not only did it speed up the pace at which a car could be built, it also helped to drastically lower the cost of production, and therefore, the cost to the end buyer.
