8 Women Offer Co-Op Wellness, Safe Healing Space In St. Pete

ST. PETERSBURG, FL — A fusion of services that include self-healing and growth are offered in a peaceful space called The Collective St. Pete that opens on Monday.

This new venue isn’t just a yoga studio, it offers a variety of services provided by eight professional women who each bring their self-improvement specialties to the community.

“It’s a co-op wellness space,” one of its certified yoga instructors, Amanda Riker, told Patch. “This is a space that is supposed to feel safe, and it’s a place where a person can try a new modality and grow.”

Dani Mae, one of its co-founders, said one of the goals of their business model is to allow teachers, creators and service providers to use their studio space and therapy room on their own terms.

Breathwork and Ayurveda are a couple of styles offered in the variety classes at the studio. Ayurveda is a holistic

Buy E-Commerce ETFs to Tap “Safe & Early” Holiday Shopping

After almost round-the-year coronavirus fear, Holiday Season is peeking into the calendars. It is time for consumers to stack up their shopping carts. Over the last few years, online sales have gained precedence. The coronavirus outbreak has raised the appeal of the space even more as it has less to do with human contact. So, one can imagine the likelihood of exponential gains in eCommerce stocks and ETFs this year.

Big Four accounting firm Deloitte expects a rise in holiday retail sales between 1% to 1.5%. On the other hand, market research firm Forrester sees retail sales declining 2.5% for the full year, as quoted on Forbes. The Forbes article highlighted that Forrester sees online retail jumping 18.5% this year and attaining 20.2% overall penetration in North America.

Deloitte predicts e-commerce holiday retail sales to grow between 25% and 35% from November through January, reaching $182 billion to $196 billion

The holiday season is already a booming time for online shopping. The COVID-19 pandemic only increases the likelihood that when people shop this holiday season, they will choose online shopping over brick-and-mortar stores. However, this also means there is likely to be a boom in online scams.

Already, multiple companies from outside the U.S. are advertising relatively unchecked on the internet, selling – or even just pretending to sell – all manner of products. The items are typically advertised using designs stolen from legitimate businesses and artists, often ripped off from Etsy, especially if those designs have been featured on popular sites like Bored Panda.

When people buy these scam products, what arrives is typically of low quality. That’s if anything ever arrives. Often the company just shutters and renames itself without sending

You’re worried about a pandemic, the election and a safe Halloween. Are you ready to start holiday shopping?

Generations of families have kicked off the holiday season in Chicago with a trip to Macy’s —formerly Marshall Field’s — store on State Street, peeking at animated window displays before visiting the 45-foot-tall, 3,000-pound decorated tree at the center of the Walnut Room restaurant.

The coronavirus pandemic won’t stop a tradition that began 113 years ago: The Walnut Room, closed since March, opens Nov. 7. But where diners used to stand in a rope line to wait for a table, this year, they will need to plan ahead.

Decriminalization bill will not go to vote before Election Day

There won’t be a vote before the Nov. 3 election on a bill that would decriminalize marijuana, a key state senator tells NJ Cannabis Insider.

But Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Union, said he would act “immediately” on the matter once voters decided whether to legalize the sale of marijuana to adults 21 and older.

We reported last month that Sen. Ronald Rice, D-Essex, demanded Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-Gloucester, and Scutari, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, to schedule Rice’s bill for a hearing.

When there was no response, Rice, who leads the Legislative Black Caucus, demanded Sweeney replace Scutari as chair. Sweeney took

After being laid off, Tampa father invents a safe sanitizer for shopping carts

Brad Parscale, President Trump’s former campaign manager who was demoted to senior adviser, is stepping away from the campaign, telling Politico he needs to “focus on my family and get help dealing with the overwhelming stress.”

Parscale, 44, was involuntarily detained by police in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, over the weekend. His wife, Candice Parscale, told a 911 dispatcher that she heard a loud noise in their home, and she thought her husband may have shot himself, as he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and had been making comments about suicide. When police arrived, she told them she had to flee because he was wielding a handgun and “ranting and raving,” Politico reports.

Officers wrote in their reports that Candice Parscale had “contusions” on her arms, forehead, and cheek, which she received “a few days ago during a physical altercation with Bradley, which she did not report.” Officers were able
