If you watch the news long enough, you see all kinds of interesting things. Cracker Barrel is adding alcohol to its menu? Yup! And you must watch this clip with Stephen Colbert working out with, and interviewing, the Notorious RBG (“Is a hot dog a sandwich?”) a few years back. We watched Lee Farkas be released from prisonafter only 9 years. What are small independent mortgage bankers, and every other lender for that matter, watching? How about concerns and questions about loans with Agencies’ indemnification/recourse, that are now in forbearance, hitting the 120-day delinquency repurchase trigger? My guess is that details are under review and you should ask your Agency rep for details, but if your net worth is $4 million, and in the next month you receive buyback requests for five loans at $400,000 each, it doesn’t take an HP-12C to calculate what does that does to

Biden Prioritizes U.S. Jobs, Products In Michigan Speech

MICHIGAN — A two-pronged plan that includes focusing on building and buying American-made products was the focus of a speech Wednesday by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Warren.

Speaking to a socially distanced crowd spread across a parking lot at the United Auto Workers Region 1 headquarters, Biden spoke of maintaining and creating jobs on American soil. He also said President Donald Trump has lied throughout his presidency about promises to prioritize American jobs.

“Donald Trump makes a lot of promises,” Biden said. “He promised that he alone could stop the offshoring jobs. He promised he’d bring back jobs (and) stop companies from leaving.

Unilever invests in blue light exposure consumer education and formulates protective beauty products

According to Unilever, 60% of people now spend more than six hours a day in front of a digital device which, when spread across five working days, equated to the same impact on the skin as spending 25 minutes in midday sun without protection. And a consumer study conducted in August by the beauty and personal care major found 65% of consumers were unaware of the effect blue light could have on their skin.

Unilever said it was therefore on a mission to help people ‘beat the screen blues’ by raising awareness of the negative impact blue light has on skin.

More brand education will build awareness on blue light exposure risks
