Brief Updates

Good morning, Brief Updates readers!

It’s Tuesday today, so I thought we’d start with a slightly different trivia than we have before.  After all, it’s not just any Tuesday, it’s Tuesday, November 24, 2020. But several decades ago, on November 24, 1966 the Beatle’s began recording one of their most famous albums.

What was it?

Bonus points if you can name the song they were actually recording on this day in the studio that never made it onto the album!

Now onto the news!

“Jeopardy!” will resume production on November 30, just weeks after the show’s host died. Alex Trebek spent more than 35 years hosting the show before his death at age 80. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer in 2019.

Former contestant Ken Jennings will serve as the first of a “series” of interim hosts before Trebek’s permanent replacement is announced.

Jennings won the “Jeopardy! Greatest of All-time” showdown. He also holds the records for the most consecutive games won and highest winning in regular-season play.

After the General Services Administration chief indicated that the Trump administration would be allocating millions of dollars in federal funding to support Joe Biden’s transition, stock futures soared.

Dow futures were up 319 points this morning, indicating an increase of about 330 points when the market opens. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures also climbed this morning.

Investors also responded enthusiastically yesterday to Biden’s pick for Treasury Secretary–former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen.

“I think this is a strong sign that Biden will be focused on rebuilding the economy vs. pursuing aggressive regulatory policy,” said Raymond James analyst Ed Mills.

Should your pets be insured?

When you’re planning for your future, don’t forget to thing about your fur-ever friends, while you’re at it. After all, medical costs are rising everywhere – including in the world of pets.

It’s easy to overlook just how expensive pet meds, surgeries, doctors visits and testing can get. And without pet insurance, you’d be shelling out cold hard cash (and likely dipping into your savings to do it.)

Just like with fashion, entertainment and other trends, food and nutrition trends change year-to-year as well. Experts contend that 10 major food and nutrition trends will emerge in 2021.

Unsurprisingly, immunity boosters will be the top trend next year. As we continue to deal with a global pandemic, a variety of medicine, supplements, and immune system-boosting foods will fly off the shelves in 2021. Some of the hottest items are expected to be elderberry, ginger, olive oil, vitamins C and D, and probiotics.
