Here’s Why Yunji Stock Popped and Dropped Today

What happened

Shares of Chinese e-commerce company Yunji (NASDAQ:YJ) soared in early trading on Wednesday, after the company highlighted sales figures from a recent live-stream event. As of 10:30 a.m. EDT, Yunji stock was up only 3%, but it had been up 18% earlier in the session.

So what

According to a press release from Yunji, it held a live-stream sales event on a platform called Douyin — owned by TikTok’s parent company, Bytedance. During the event, Yunji’s CEO highlighted over 40 different products in various categories. And Chinese consumers apparently liked what they saw. The company generated gross merchandise volume (GMV) of RMB 87.5 million from the event.

This is roughly equivalent to $12.9 million. For perspective, Yunji’s GMV for the second quarter of 2020 was about $1.1 billion. So while the live-stream event did produce sales, it’s a relatively small figure for the company.

Joe Biden decided he didn’t have to choose a leftwing progressive. Here’s why

In one of the least surprising moments of what has so far been an uncommonly anticlimactic race, Joe Biden on Wednesday did what everyone was already expecting him to do: he chose California Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate.

The pick comes on the heels of a slew of leaks and on- and off-the-record comments from Biden allies wishing to trash Harris and downplay her chances in the press. Florida Democratic donor John Morgan lamented to CNBC that Harris “would be running for president the day of the inauguration.” Former Senator Chris Dodd complained that Harris showed “no remorse” after attacking Biden based on his racial justice record. In retrospect, these comments in the media read less like realistic dispatches from within the VP vetting process than attempts to influence it from the outside, perhaps from Biden allies still angry at Harris over the primary.

For some lucky students – despite the national concern over algorithmic A-level results – tomorrow will be the happiest day of their lives so far. 

These are the cohort who have exceeded their expectations and scored higher grades than expected. This may not mean a bevy of A stars – but a couple of Bs where Cs had been threatened or Cs that had blossomed from predicted Ds.

Naturally, this opens up extra choices both in terms of courses as well as colleges. So what are your options in this cheering dilemma?

Stick to the place originally offered

You could frame your certificates, confirm the place you planned – and chill out.  You wouldn’t be alone. Most people stick with the original place that they have, says James Durant of UCAS. “One of the main reasons for that is that they

Florida voters have to fill dozens of judgeships. Here’s how people in the know make their picks.

Bailey, Logan and Odom sounds as if it might be the name of a prestigious law firm — or the kind that runs TV ads urging people to file lawsuits.

It’s neither one. Dennis Daniel Bailey, Abbe Sheila Rifkin Logan and George Odom Jr. are all candidates running for one circuit judgeship in Broward County.

Like the other 10 races for judge in Broward and Palm Beach counties, voting is open to everyone, regardless of party affiliation, in the Aug. 18 elections.

For the vast majority of voters it’s exceedingly difficult to make an informed decision.

“It’s very difficult,” said Steve Geller — who knows many of the judges and candidates after 38 years practicing law. He’s also a Broward County commissioner and former Florida Senate Democratic leader.

Here’s how colleges across Chicago are preparing for the school year

Large lecture halls, packed libraries and bustling dining halls won’t be the reality this year for local colleges. Instead, many facilities will be closed or reorganized to encourage social distancing.

Schools such as DePaul University, Loyola University Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago all have extensive pages dedicated to various aspects of campus life and how it will be different. For students who are still heading to campus, here’s a general breakdown of what you can expect.

Residential life

Students heading to campus this fall won’t be in bunk beds with roommates. Students won’t be required to live on campus. DePaul is closing dorms that offer double, triple or quad-style living and communal bathrooms. At Northwestern University, there will still be community bathrooms, but there will be fewer students assigned to each one, and the facilities will be cleaned more often than in the past.

Depending on how
