I Finally Got Into Yoga, and I Have Online Classes to Thank

The last couple of months have taught a lot of us that working out at home can actually be fun and effective. As someone who used to be only motivated when I was in a fitness studio class, feeding off the energy of the instructor and the other people working out alongside me, I’ve changed my mind about at-home exercise.

Now, I’ve gotten into a routine, and I’m pretty sure I work out a lot more than I used to because it’s so convenient to just turn on my laptop and stream a workout. And because I’m working out solo, I’ve been feeling more adventurous to try new types of workouts. I’ve always stuck to indoor cycling and barre classes because I felt pretty competent with them and never really tried anything else because I was afraid of making a fool out of myself in class. But since I have

Here’s Exactly Where to Buy Face Masks Online

Practicing social distancing and staying home is the best thing you can do to slow the spread of COVID-19, but protests against racial injustice have many taking to the streets—where the six-feet rule can be almost impossible to swing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises you to wear a cloth face covering in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, and with this recommendation, everyone wants to know where to buy face masks. We rounded up some options below—from face masks for kids to breathable face masks and more—and we’ll update this list as companies go in and out of stock.

Cloth face masks don’t guarantee you won’t contract the virus or pass it on, but they’re a public health measure we should all seriously consider, whether you’re protesting or in a city that’s slowly re-opening. If you’re unsure of where to buy face masks

How hucksters and would-be profiteers invaded California’s online COVID-19 marketplace

In early April, Gov. Gavin Newsom launched a website where people and companies could help California gear up for the coronavirus pandemic.

The portal was designed as a marketplace for middlemen, manufacturers and business giants to pitch deals and donations with the state, which was scrambling to obtain medical supplies to fight COVID-19.

For some, the site was a chance to clear out their closets.

Someone in Los Angeles found seven masks while cleaning out an apartment and asked to donate them. A Santa Rosa resident offered an ice machine, an orthopedic boot and two N95 masks that were leftover from the 2017 wildfires.

“Sorry,” the person said, “that’s all I had left.”

Along with these small gestures, the portal soon became cluttered with hundreds of questionable offers and a dizzying array of sales pitches, a Sacramento Bee review of more than 6,000 submissions found. Hucksters looked to cash-in on

The online wine shops still delivering during lockdown

Whether you’re pairing a bottle with a nice dinner in the garden after being sat indoors working all day, or over a Zoom call for a catch up with friends, trying times often call for a glass of wine.

Wine isn’t counted as an essential item – although we all know the relaxing benefits of a glass or two, especially at this time – so we advise instead of making special trips out to buy wine, that you order online.

Not only is it a way to support smaller businesses who will have shut their shop doors, it means you’ll barely need to get off the sofa to receive it.

The Winchester wine festival, whose annual event has been cancelled due to the coronavirus spread, has compiled a detailed long list of vendors due to be at the festival who are accommodating with online orders instead.

Many are offering free

A worldwide pandemic, mass unemployment and nationwide protests over racial injustice — there are many important issues occupying our collective attention. Sadly, this kind of large-scale distraction is fertile ground for hackers.

“We have the COVID disaster combined with the economic disaster combined with the protests,” said Adam Levin, cyber security expert and founder of CyberScout, to Yahoo Life. ”We are now in the middle of what can be considered a perfect storm for scammers.”

Levin says that the current climate of our nation has set the stage for an online scam trifecta: motive, means, and opportunity.

Booking Holdings Takes Solitary Path in Online Travel Debate Over Offering Financial Relief to Partners

While Airbnb is issuing $17 million in grants to some super hosts, and Google, Expedia Group, Trip.com Group and Tripadvisor are offering various forms of advertising or marketing credits, loans or financial relief to partners, Booking Holdings is a holdout and isn’t mounting a financial recovery effort.

Booking Holdings, which includes brands such as Booking.com, Priceline and Agoda, has chosen to forego taking the financial relief route and instead is working on recovery toolkits for partners, sharing data to entice bookings, and is rolling out consumer incentives to generate demand, according to spokeswoman Leslie Cafferty.

Cafferty argued that some of these measures can have a longer-term impact than offering partners a one-time payment.

Some of these travel industry relief efforts — particularly Airbnb and Google’s programs —  have found themselves in the line of fire.

Airbnb ironically is the only hospitality-specific program that Skift found that’s actually handing out any

Is my online travel agency withholding an airline ticket refund?

Q: I had a flight from Baltimore to Madrid scheduled on American Airlines, then I found out I needed surgery. So I contacted my online travel agency, AirTkt, to ask for a refund.

I filled out the paperwork and sent AirTkt a letter from Johns Hopkins stating that I would be unable to fly. American Airlines refunded AirTkt based on my medical letter. But now I can’t get AirTkt to refund me. I have a credit card that provides travel insurance, but it requires that I first request a refund from the airlines. Can you help me get my airline ticket refund? — Pamela Mazerski, Ellicott City, Maryland

A: I’m sorry to hear that you need surgery. At a time like this, everyone should be sympathetic to your situation. If, indeed, AirTkt took an airline ticket refund from American Airlines and didn’t send the money along, that would be unethical.
