This story is part of The Road Ahead, a series that examines the future of travel and how we’ll experience the world after the pandemic.

In 2019, Salesforce employees traveled so much for work that they generated a combined 146,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions. That’s the same amount emitted by 17,500 homes over the course of an entire year; it would take more than 178,000 acres of forest 12 months to sequester that carbon dioxide.

Retiring and Changing Health Insurance at the Same Time? Good Luck.

I recently received an email from “Bill,” who retired on Dec. 31, 2020. Bill was over 65 at his retirement and shared his story of enrolling in Medicare and also changing his Federal Employees Health Benefits Program coverage at the same time as his retirement application was being processed.

This is a very powerful rally. The combination of surprisingly strong economic reports and even more surprisingly strong earnings reports is pushing broad swaths of the U.S. stock market to new highs.

Even the technicians who chart momentum are impressed.

“The vast majority of NYSE stocks are in intermediate-term uptrends, independent of short-term pullbacks and volatility,” Michael N. Kahn of Lowry Research, the oldest technical analysis service in the U.S., wrote in a note to clients.

Time runs out for United Life & Accident Insurance Company
