And because of their country’s slow and fractured response to the pandemic, long-haulers continue to experience dreadful symptoms. Because their cases were more “mild” in the beginning, meaning they weren’t hospitalized, Carrie and scores of others never tested positive for the virus (if they could get a test at all), and antibodies still aren’t showing up in their blood. As a result, they’ve been gaslighted, blocked from benefits, penalized for not returning to work, and have been unable to get specialized treatment. Given the virus’s steady spread — the US now has more than 6 million cases — doctors studying long-haulers say if we don’t do something, if we don’t erect clinics and launch programs, millions of people could be sick or have a disability for the rest of their lives. … [Read more...] about At 35, Carrie Was Finally Feeling Secure In Her Adult Life.

Please contact your embassy in Germany as soon as possible. In principle, it should be possible to leave Germany and re-enter your home country — provided you are not in quarantine or actively infected. How you can leave the country and who will cover the costs depends on your booking conditions. Ask the tour operator or airline whether and when a return is possible and who will cover the potential costs. As a precaution, make sure you have a financial buffer before departure if additional costs are incurred. Because if the building, city or region where you are staying in Germany is placed under quarantine, you will have to remain there until the authorities allow you to leave the area again. … [Read more...] about Traveling to Germany: Coronavirus restrictions — questions and answers

BigCommerce's price tiers are identical to Shopify's at $29 (Standard), $79 (Plus), and $249 (Pro), but what you get at each level differs. Even the lowest BigCommerce plan at $29 gives its clients unlimited users, unlimited bandwidth and storage, unlimited products, and no added transaction fees. You can even link your e-commerce site to eBay, Google Shopping and Amazon. Where the pricing gets a little tricky is with the sales thresholds: The Standard plan only supports annual sales of less than $50,000, while Plus supports up to $150,000 and Pro up to $400,000. So basically you save a lot of money on transaction fees the more sales you rack up, but if you have enough sales, you have to upgrade to the next plan tier. … [Read more...] about Best website builder for 2020: Squarespace, Wix and more compared
