MLB’s unprecedented season during the coronavirus pandemic ends with a playoff schedule where teams play at neutral sites across the country. 

The AL Divisional Series between the A’s and Houston Astros began Monday in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium, with any home-field advantage in the best-of-five series extending only to the order in which the teams would pat.

However, when it came to where the Astros would have their lockers, the Dodgers didn’t want them placing their stuff in the home clubhouse.

The San Francisco Chronicle’s Susan Slusser spoke to a Dodgers employee on Sunday who made it very clear they were happy the A’s were the higher seed, forcing the Astros to use the visiting clubhouse.

“Yeah, we definitely didn’t want Houston in our clubhouse,” the employee told Slusser.

Can Lowe’s Overtake Home Depot’s Top Spot?

Reopening Edinburgh’s South Sub railway is top public suggestion for transport improvements

The South Suburban Railway closed to passenger services in 1962

Council chiefs said future development of the line, currently only used for freight trains, was “in the mix” in a national review of transport projects – but they warned the “South Sub” was not necessarily an answer to the Capital’s transport needs.

A consultation on the council’s draft City Mobility Plan asked for people’s views on issues ranging from segregated cycle routes to extending the tram route, but also noted feedback on topics not mentioned in the plan but which members of the public raised. Top of these was reopening the South Sub.

The line, which opened in 1884, connected the city centre with Gorgie, Craiglockhart, South Morningside, Cameron Toll, Craigmillar and Portobello, but closed to passenger services in 1962.

6 Common Decorating Mistakes And How To Avoid Them, According to Top Interior Designers

From Veranda

Many of us have been spending our spring and summer revamping our gardens, finally building out our dream home offices, and tackling other renovation projects we may have put off if we hadn’t been spending every moment inside these past months. Warren Shoulberg, a retail journalist and columnist for Business Of Home, says he is expecting the home furnishings industry to see a boost in the coming months as companies like Lowe’s and Home Depot did earlier this year.

Shoulberg explained during his panel at BOH‘s Future of Home virtual conference that when the housing market does well, ultimately the home furnishings business follows, and while home improvement stores feel this first, furnishings and decor companies are sure to follow suit in the next six to nine months. And if you spent even a few minutes at your local Home Depot this spring, you know there’s

New Home Sales Strongest Since 2006: Top 7 Housing Stocks

Sales of new single-family homes exceeded 1 million in August 2020, marking the highest level since September 2006. The metric, which has been rising for four consecutive months, exceeded analysts’ expectation by 13.6%.

The U.S. housing market has shown a resilient performance over the past few months despite ambivalent market predictions and fears of a second wave of the virus. Not only did the industry offset these COVID-19-related headwinds but also tackled lumber price swings, mortgage delinquencies, U.S.-China trade spat, labor shortage and inflating land prices.

This industry has experienced a strong V-shaped recovery since May and its growth is now exceeding pre-pandemic levels fueled by the work-from-home initiative and record low mortgage rates.

Since May, the Zacks Building Products – Home Builders industry has improved 57.1% compared with the Zacks Construction sector and S&P 500 composite’s 35% and 14.6% rally, respectively.
