CompTIA’s tracker shows overall gains but IT-related job losses. BLS shows a second consecutive month of growth.

The matter between the stars in a galaxy—called the interstellar medium—consists not only of gas, but also of a great deal of dust. At some point in time, stars and planets originated in such an environment, because the dust particles can clump together and merge into celestial bodies. Important chemical processes also take place on these particles, from which complex organic—possibly even prebiotic—molecules emerge.
However, for these processes to be possible, there has to be water. In particularly cold cosmic environments, water occurs in the form of ice. Until now, however, the connection between ice and dust in these regions of space was unclear. A research team from Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the Max Planck Institute for

The wild session indicated caution was in store, said Dennis Dick, a trader at Bright Trading

S&P 500 futures are mixed in premarket trading after yesterday’s sell-off in leading tech stocks.
Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Google left their recent trading ranges and gained downside momentum. These stocks are gaining some ground during the current premarket trading session so S&P 500 should have a chance to rebound today.
The big tech was leading the S&P 500 on its way up, and the market needs support from these mega-cap stocks to continue its upside trend.
