Why Tech Stocks Closed Mix

Why Tech Stocks Closed Mix

On Wednesday, US stocks closed mixed.

Business Insider reports that sliding tech giants overshadowed the Federal Reserve's pledge to keep monetary support intact for the foreseeable future.

Central bank policymakers signaled near-zero interest rates would last through 2023 to help the US economic recovery.

The tech industry dragged major indexes into intraday losses, with mega-caps including Apple and Facebook leading the slump.

Retail sales grew by just 0.6% in August, lower than expected.

There's A Great Opportunity Now For Couples Working At Home: Trade Chore Lists

Just like in the workplace, domestic partnerships feature gendered division of labor. But according to Business Insider contributor Melissa Petro, divvying up chores into 'his' work and 'her' work is counter-productive. Whereas men do more work that is outdoors and considered recreational, like yard work, women tend to do indoor work like cooking, cleaning, and laundry. But because men's chores happen weekly or less often, the ones women do happen daily, or several times a day.
