Wear a mask, Ohio
We aren't mandating that customers wear masks in retail locations, but business owners can require it. The recommendation that masks be worn came from business owners to protect employees. They can make a decision that those coming in the door need to wear a protective covering.— Governor Mike DeWine (@GovMikeDeWine) April 28, 2020
I wear a mask, you should too. Let's all ignore these ignorant jaboofers and stay safe!

Nucor CEO calls for steel prices to bottom in second quarter
Nucor's CEO Leon Topalian told Jim Cramer that the company will continue to pay its dividend despite the collapse in the commodities markets due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The company reported better than expected earnings this morning. The company also stated that " we currently believe that market conditions will bottom in the second quarter and Nucor will return to profitability in the second half of this year," after guiding for a second quarter loss. This may be a bottom for the steel industry, and a sign of hope for the beaten down materials space.
In the interview with CNBC, Topalian went on to call for American companies to bring manufacturing back home in the wake of the global pandemic. "I think this pandemic is going to cause the American people to begin to look at the global supply overdependance on China. Not just in manufacturing and steel, but in pharma, in medical devices, in our PPE. We have got to become a nation that builds and makes things again, Jim."
