Matthew McConaughey is no stranger to deftly juggling whatever life throws his way. But like many parents navigating pandemic life, the star has faced the unique challenge of raising his little ones in quarantine.

To McConaughey’s proud delight, Levi, 12, Vida, 10, and Livingston, 8, his with kids wife Camila, 37, have more than risen to the occasion.

“One of the assets of this COVID quarantine is they’ve been forced to be more self-reliant. They’ve been forced to create their way out of their boredom,” he says.

One particular passion and skill they’ve honed is photography. “They’re into it — all three [of the kids],” he says. “They’re becoming a production crew. It’s very cool, [and] they’re starting to get kind of good at it.”

U.S. stock futures pointed to a higher open Wednesday, one day after the first down session in the past five for the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq, as investors digest more bank earnings and keep watch for any coronavirus stimulus developments out of Washington. Gains on Wednesday would avoid back-to-back losses for the major stock benchmarks, something that has not happened in more than three weeks. Despite Tuesday’s slide, the October gains for the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq are still larger than the losses they experienced in September.

2. Goldman beats on earnings while BofA and Wells Fargo disappoint

Dow-30 stock Goldman Sachs rose in Wednesday’s premarket trading after the Wall Street firm posted third-quarter earnings and revenue that best estimates. Per-share profit of $9.68 far exceeded analyst expectations of $5.57. Quarterly revenue came in at $10.78 billion.

Bank of America shares fell in the premarket after the lender posted third-quarter results that missed on revenue. The firm said it generated $20.45 billion in total revenue. Profit in the quarter slumped 16% to $4.9 billion, or 51 cents a share, edging out the 49 cent estimate.

Shares of Wells Fargo dropped in the premarket after the bank also reported disappointing earnings for the third quarter as low rates put pressure on net interest income. Wells Fargo earned 42 cents per share on better-than-expected Q3 revenue of $18.86 billion.

Yalla Fintech 2020 hackathon opens to applicants to boost financial inclusion

Yalla Fintech 2020 hackathon opens to applicants to boost financial inclusion

UAE-based FinTech Galaxy is accepting applications for its virtual hackathon that will focus on developing tools that can expand financial inclusion for businesses and individuals in the Arab world.

The Yalla FinTech hackathon is a partnership between FinTech Galaxy and German development agency Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit to boost financial inclusion. Start-ups and tech firms can now submit their proposals to address technical challenges in digital lending, financial awareness and cybersecurity.

“We are home-grown with a track record and a global FinTech network that enables us to bring together start-ups, progressive banks and ecosystem partners from the Arab markets. In doing so, we harness a common goal, embracing FinTech innovations for better livelihoods,” Mirna Sleiman, founder and chief executive of FinTech Galaxy, said of the hackathon’s launch.

In the Middle East and North Africa, two out of three people do not have a bank account, according to the World Bank.

Financial inclusion is critical for the region’s competitiveness, for employment creation and for raising incomes and reducing poverty, according to the lender.

Businesses need access to financial services in order to invest, innovate and manage cash flow and costs, while households benefit from financial inclusion as a safe place to save and access loans, according to the World Bank.

The latest wave of technology such as artificial intelligence, big data, cloud services and distributed ledgers is affecting financial services at an unprecedented pace. The digital transformation in finance can stimulate competition and product variety for the benefit of communities and businesses in the region, according to FinTech Galaxy, which facilitates the development of applications, products, and services on its online platform, FinX22.

The digital platform enables the screening, interaction and collaboration among innovators, financial institutions, and regulators, allowing them to crowdsource and prototype FinTech solutions prospectively in Fintech Galaxy’s
