At 82, Jane Fonda has spent decades in the limelight, from the start of her career starring in hit films like Klute and 9 to 5 to her role in Netflix’s Grace and Frankie alongside one of her best friends, Lily Tomlin. Of course, Fonda is no stranger to red carpets, dazzling gowns, and lots of glam.

But she recently opened up to InStyle about her time in quarantine, and it turns out the actress is not missing getting all dolled up. In fact, the climate advocate revealed she made a promise to herself a long time ago to make more sustainable choices around fashion.

Apple Fitness+ doesn’t terrify the founder of this Peloton rival — here’s why

If two of the hottest names in at-home fitness are worried about Apple Fitness+, they sure aren’t showing the public. That says a lot about the total addressable market for at-home fitness in the post COVID-19 pandemic world — leaving the door open for many players to compete effectively.

Earlier this week, Apple took the wraps off its first fitness experiences designed for the Apple Watch and iPhone. Launching later this year, Apple Fitness+ will offer studio-style workouts that focus on popular training methods such as cycling, treadmill running, rowing, high intensity internal, yoga, dance, and core.

“We do welcome Apple’s entry into the space. We see it is as further validation of the shift to working out from home,” Tonal founder Aly Orady told Yahoo Finance’s The First Trade. Tonal, a Peloton rival, is a connected strength training platform.

In typical Apple services form, it will make the pricing

Here’s Why AB InBev (BUD) Possesses a Robust Upside Story

Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV BUD, alias AB InBev, displays a remarkable upside story despite the looming effects of the coronavirus pandemic. The company’s growth story has been mainly tied to the strength in the off-premise channel and premium brands as well as investment in B2B platforms, e-commerce channels and digital marketing in the past few months. These not only boosted investor confidence in the stock but also aided its results in second-quarter 2020.

Notably, the Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) company has a market capitalization of $114 billion. In the past three months, it has gained 15% compared with the industry’s growth of 8.9%. Moreover, it has comfortably outpaced the Consumer Staples and the Zacks S&P 500 composite’s growth of 6.6% and 9.2%, respectively, during the said period.



Why AB InBev Should Retain the Momentum

AB InBev is expected to continue its resilient volume trend due to the gradual reopening of on-premise

Here’s how to help your kids pay attention to online school

School is back in session for students across Chicago. This year, since the pandemic has moved classes online, parents believe it’ll be harder than ever to manage children and keep them focused on schoolwork, according to a recent study.

In July, a Pew Research study found that half of parents with at least one child age 12 or younger, who may also have an older kid, believed the amount of time kids spent on devices could affect school performance. As for teens, a 2018 Pew Research study found 95% of teens, ages 13 to 17, have a smartphone and nearly half say they’re online “almost constantly.” Unfortunately, long hours of screen time has become mandatory with e-learning. But online games, social media and other tempting distractions could make it difficult to focus on class Zoom sessions. Below are tips from experts to ensure kids get the most out of school

I Tried the Ayurvedic Diet for a Week, and Here’s What Happened

From Men’s Health

IT’S FAIRLY well-established that not every weight loss plan works for everyone.

In fact, whether or not you can successfully lose weight depends on many factors, from your gender to your metabolism to your genes. But what if you were told that your body type and your overall mental makeup also play a role?

Well, that’s the core principle behind Ayurveda (pronounced eye-yur-vayda and translated to “science of life”) Medicine, a holistic wellness system of beliefs that originated in ancient India nearly 3,000 years ago.

Recently, wellness gurus have been dipping back into Ayurvedic texts to come up with the principles for the Ayurvedic Diet, which ostensibly uses Ayurvedic principles to help you lose weight.

I wanted to try the diet. My late, great mom, who was born and raised in Mumbai, India, always used spices like turmeric and ginger in her own cooking. When she passed

From Woman’s Day

Melissa Bunch’s 7-year-old son Luka starts remote school at 8:30 a.m. every morning. He has a series of Google Meets throughout the day until about 2 p.m. One day, after his last Google Meet, teachers were working with him one-on-one on a phonics assessment, and he broke down. “I’ve never seen him cry like that,” Bunch tells Woman’s Day . “Just crying as he’s trying to spell words.” Remote learning has been emotionally and academically challenging for Luka and Bunch’s fourth-grader Kellan, who both have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and have struggled with staying focused and engaged.

“It’s isolating,” Bunch says. “You’re staring at a screen for eight hours a day.”

Bunch and her kids aren’t alone. Education and psychology experts tell Woman’s Day completing school at home can affect kids’ mental health and development in a variety of

Steering clear of the gym? Here’s where to find home workout equipment on sale.

Steering clear of the gym? Here’s where to find home workout equipment on sale.

TL;DR: As of Sept. 11, select home gym equipment is on sale for up to $2,400 off at Best Buy and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

If Peloton’s recent sale milestones have shown us anything, it’s that people will go to great lengths to recreate the gym experience at home amid the COIVD-19 pandemic. But we’ll go out on a limb and guess that $2,000 (on top of membership fees) isn’t a reasonable ask for most shoppers in need of new workout equipment.

The thing is, finding workout equipment on sale online can be tricky. Lately, we’ve seen one of two things happening: Either retailers’ supplies are almost completely depleted, or they’ll list items “on sale” above retail price to make it look like you’re getting a

Here’s What Would Happen If Schools Didn’t Reopen For a Full Year

The pandemic is making this the strangest start to a school year of a lifetime. Nothing’s for certain with America’s school openings. It’s up to states — and in many cases different school districts — to decide to open their doors. And with so much we don’t know about COVID-19, it’s a toss-up whether schools that open will stay open.

Unfortunately, this ambiguity about schools and safety isn’t temporary. In New Jersey and New York State, for instance, where COVID hit early and hard, infection rates and hospitalizations have eased enough to make it seem like the worst may be over. But COVID-19 is spiking in Europe, sparking fears of a second wave. Questions linger about children and the transmission of the virus. If something big, new, and bad happens, schools won’t stay open long.

It’s not a fun mental exercise, but we wondered: What would happen if schools
