What you need to know about this controversial 'public health' bill

New York State Assemblyman N. Nick Perry is sponsoring Bill A416. The New York bill allows for the removal and detention of anyone who ‘may be a danger to public health.’ The bill requires the governor “or his or her delegee” to apply for a court order authorizing a detention within three business days.

While earlier versions of the bill were introduced as far back as the 2015-2016 legislative session, many critics of the bill have tied it to austere measures taken by local and state officials regarding the pandemic. 

Conservative podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey has publicly called the bill “disgusting.” She goes on to say, “Yes, it will be used, at least one day, to forcibly remove you or your children from your home for whatever reason the state sees fit.”

The first trading day of 2020 looked as though it was off to a good start this morning, with futures indicating gains for each of the three major averages. Dow futures climbed 0.6%, while S&P 500 futures rose 0.5%, and Nasdaq 100 futures increased 0.4%.

Last week, the market closed a rollercoaster year on a positive note, as well, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average closing ahead by 7.3%, the S&P 500 up 16.3%, and the Nasdaq Composite soaring 43.6%.

“The stock market is positioned for further gains in 2021 based on the twin pillars of coordinated fiscal and monetary policy from the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve Board and a successful [virus] vaccine rollout,” said one analyst. “However, we envision some bumps in the road on the way.”

How to actually finish a project after you've started

We’ve all enthusiastically started a new project, only to fail in its completion. But not following through with your latest endeavor doesn’t mean you’re lazy or lack the ability to stick with something until it’s done. For most people, it boils down to time management and motivation.

For most things, the beginning isn’t the hard part. The majority of the tasks we try to check off our to-do list start to get difficult toward the middle of the project. And that’s when most people begin to lose interest and move on to something else because they don’t have the time to deal with it.

And too many of us view goals as an all-or-nothing task. We set goals that are too big or ambitious for us to complete. But we pick them because society makes us feel that we have to go big or go home.

If you can manage your time and remember to aim for goals that fall within your skill sets and abilities, you’ll be on your way to completing your tasks in no time!


It’s important to guard your mental health, but it’s even more important in the midst of a pandemic and the winter blues. Thankfully, there are five helpful tips that can help you protect your mental health during this difficult time.

One simple but effective way to protect your mental health is by finding a reason to laugh every day. According to mental health experts, laughter really is the best medicine and is one of the most effective ways to boost your mood and outlook and improve your mental health.

Ensuring you maintain relationships by connecting by phone or video chat is also important. Since people are not spending as much time together due to the pandemic, it can bring on feelings of loneliness and depression. This is why it is critical for your mental health to stay as connected as possible with people, even if that is virtually. What else can you do to guard your mental health?  


How to set up an estate plan without breaking the bank

If you think that estate planning is only for the ultra rich, think again!

But that doesn’t mean that far too many Americans don’t have one in place.

And estate planning (when done the right way) isn’t just a one-size-fits-all solution. In fact, there are quite a few options out there. Some include a will, powers of attorney and your living will, which is also known as your “advance directive.”

Sadly, less than ⅓ of Americans have one or more of these crucial documents according to a survey last year of 2,400 people.

And America isn’t just avoiding estate planning because they don’t want to think about their own mortality. It also wraps in another element that makes a lot of us uncomfortable – the price tag.

“The perception of cost is clearly one of the things that keeps people from doing it,” he said. “In some cases, you take certain steps and the costs aren’t so high.”

So, here’s how you can do it without breaking the bank…
