4 Anker Nebula projectors are on sale at all-time-low prices, starting at $245


Got a wall that’s sitting around doing nothing? Point a projector at it and presto: big-screen TV goodness. How big and how good? That depends on the projector, of course. Anker’s Nebula lineup includes a variety of options, and right now four popular models are on sale for historic low prices. (And it’s not even Prime Day yet!)


Most of these models are entirely self-contained, with built-in speakers and batteries for cordless portability. Most also have onboard Android so you can stock up on streaming apps, though in my experience you’re usually better off using a Roku or Fire TV streamer (which you can do, thanks to HDMI inputs).

Huge Walmart Sale To Offer Black Friday-Type Deals Starting This Sunday

With Amazon Prime Day right around the corner, retailers have begun revealing promotions that will compete with the massive annual sale. Target’s Deal Days sale will run concurrently alongside Prime Day on October 13 and 14. Walmart’s approach is a tad different, as the big-box chain’s sale starts earlier and ends later than Prime Day. Walmart’s Big Save event kicks off on Sunday, October 11 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET and runs through October 15.

You can expect the Big Save sale to hone in on Amazon’s territory with discounts on tech, entertainment, gaming, home goods, and much more. Walmart has stated that the Big Save sale will feature Black Friday-type prices, so you can get some holiday shopping done early at the lowest possible prices.

Walmart has revealed a small sample of the deals that will go live this Sunday. You’ll be be able to get

Utilities can send shutoff notices to Maryland homes starting this week. But help is available.

Utility companies could soon send termination notices to Marylanders who are behind on their bills, as a months-long moratorium on shut-offs comes to an end.



Under a ruling by the state’s Public Service Commission, residents will have 45 days notice to address unpaid bills with their utility company once they receive a termination notice. They will not have their service disconnected if they work out a payment plan or apply for energy assistance.

Under a ruling by the state’s Public Service Commission, residents will have 45 days notice to address unpaid bills with their utility company once they receive a termination notice. They will not have their service disconnected if they work out a payment plan or apply for energy assistance.

A state prohibition on residential disconnections began in March in response to the coronavirus pandemic. A moratorium remains in place for water, gas and electric service turn-offs until Nov. 15, but notices can begin going out Oct. 1.

Consumer advocates, state officials and utility companies all have the same message: Reach out now if you need help.

They said people should contact their utilities and apply for assistance as

Starting Friday, Indoor Visits Are Allowed At Nursing Homes

Nursing homes and rest homes in Massachusetts can resume in-person visits on Friday, as long as infection control and safety measures announced by the Baker administration Thursday are in place. Assisted living residences will also be allowed to expand their indoor visitation options.

The Department of Public Health and the Executive Office of Elder Affairs said their new guidelines balance “the important role visitation plays in supporting resident emotional health and quality of life, while ensuring necessary infection control measures are in place.”

All visitors must be screened for COVID-19 symptoms ahead of time, the visits must take place “within a designated visitation space that is close to the entrance of the facility and allows for social distancing,” residents, staff and guests must wear a mask at all times during the visit, and the guest is to stay six feet away from the resident for the majority of the visit.
