Puzzles and games have been popular items amid the coronavirus and early on in the pandemic, there were shortages of the toys.

The games – the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Game, Jell-O Jiggler Slap Game and Heinz Ketchup Dice Game – also look like the food packaging.

Each game takes about 20 minutes to play and is recommended for ages 8 and older. 

There’s an easy way to get a headstart in each of the games. The player who most recently ate Jell-O or the pasta dish or used ketchup goes first, according to the

Soccer-Lower league clubs eye financial boost from ‘Big Picture’

Soccer-Lower league clubs eye financial boost from ‘Big Picture’

Oct 13 (Reuters)Several lower-league clubs have welcomed controversial proposals for restructuring England’s top flight, highlighting the financial boost the changes would bring as they struggle to stay afloat.

The proposals would give more power to the big Premier League clubs, reducing the top division to 18 teams from 20 for the 2022-23 season and scrapping the League Cup and Community Shield.

The Premier League would also provide 25% of future broadcast revenue to English Football League (EFL) clubs and a 250 million-pounds ($326 million) fund to help with the COVID-19 crisis.

EFL Chairman Rick Parry has said the plans, dubbed “Project Big Picture”, had been drawn up together with Liverpool and Manchester United, though the clubs have not made public statements on the proposals.

It is not clear how many Premier League or EFL clubs have been consulted about the proposals and the Premier League itself has been critical of the plans.

The government has criticised the plan as a “backroom deal” and a “power grab”.

But Nigel Travis, chairman of League Two (fourth-tier) Leyton Orient, told the BBC that several EFL clubs could disappear within five to six weeks without financial support.

“This isn’t about the pandemic, this is about a crisis in football that goes back many years,” Travis added. “Before the pandemic, 75% of clubs were losing money – that can’t continue.

“I know you are talking about ‘Project Big Picture’ – this is a great proposal as far as we are concerned. It is certainly very promising and clubs need it.”

Dale Vince, chairman of League Two’s Forest Green Rovers, said the plans would ensure financial stability in the EFL, while Fleetwood Town owner Andy Pilley said the move was a potential game-changer for lower league sides.

“We desperately need this money,” Pilley told

Financial Sector ETFs Kick Off a Big Earnings Week for Banks

Financial Sector ETFs Kick Off a Big Earnings Week for Banks

It’s going to be a big week for financial sector exchange traded funds as Wall Street banks kick off the third quarter earnings season.

JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE: JPM) will report earnings on Tuesday before the open bell along with Citigroup (NYSE: C). Other banks to reveal their third quarter results this week include Bank of America (NYSE: BAC), Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) and Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS).

The Financial Select Sector SPDR (NYSEArca: XLF) includes a 10.9% position in JPM, 6.8% in BAC, 3.7% in WFC, 3.3% in C and 2.5% in GS.

“We’re keeping our eye on JPMorgan. I think that’s going to be the bellwether that we’re really going to want to watch here in earnings,” Piper Sandler chief market technician Craig Johnson told CNBC. “We’ve been making this kind of nice symmetrical sort of setup in the price action here recently, and that really suggests that perhaps a lot of the bad news might be priced in.”

The financial sector has been underperforming the broader market while the S&P 500 has been reaching toward new 52-week highs. However, bargain hunters are looking at banks as a value play, which typically outperforms during the beginning stages of a broad economic recovery.

“Then secondly, I like Wells Fargo right here. It’s the ultimate value play. In my opinion, it trades at too steep of a discount to book value. And if management can just stay out of the media and they can execute on their cost-cutting plan, I think the stock is a good buy at these levels,” Michael Binger, president of Gradient Investments, told CNBC.

However, some warn of potential risks. For instance, traders are concerned about potential political risk following the election. Banks have enjoyed a rollback of regulations, but November’s vote could mean a
