(Photo: GE Appliances, a Haier company) The corrected release reads: JUST SCAN AND COOK: GE APPLIANCES SIMPLIFIES THE MICROWAVE WITH NEW RELEASE Countertop model debuts with bonus Amazon Dot for post-Prime Day sales on July 18 There’s appetizing news for college students and busy families everywhere: GE Appliances is launching its new GE Smart Countertop Microwave with Scan-to-Cook Technology just in time for the busy back-to-school season. From the GE Appliances Kitchen app, owners can use a smartphone to scan barcodes on food packaging that will automatically send their microwave exact instructions for cooking times and power levels—ensuring a perfectly heated pizza pocket, bubbly burrito or melty mac-and-cheese. The average microwave has 10 power levels, but many consumers never change the preset, defrost or power settings. With scan-to-cook features, puzzled consumers can finally take full advantage of the microwave’s capabilities by letting the machine optimize the settings and do the heavy lifting. The new stainless steel GE Smart Countertop Microwave comes with more than 3,000 meal items preprogrammed, including frozen, refrigerated and shelf-stable goods, and will be updated with additional items over time. “GE Appliances’ research shows consumers don’t use the full capabilities of their microwaves and stick to a few buttons and Time Cook,” says Shawn Stover, vice president of GE Appliances’ SmartHome Solutions team. “With our new GE microwave scan-to-cook technology, your son or daughter can head off to college and cook food with the help of their phone instead of relying on mom.” Use Amazon Alexa for Simple Voice-Controlled Cooking In addition to the scan-to-cook technology, the microwave is compatible with Amazon Alexa. This means owners can speak directly to Alexa to control cook settings from any Alexa-enabled device to achieve the ultimate in kitchen convenience. Hands covered in flour? Just say, “Alexa, add 30 seconds to the microwave.” See oatmeal boiling over from across the room? “Alexa, stop the microwave!” “We’re excited to work with GE Appliances to continue extending the convenience of Alexa to the kitchen,” said Christian Taubman, director, Smart Home Devices at Amazon. “We think customers will love the simplicity of hands-free voice control whether popping popcorn or preparing the perfect meal.” GE Appliances and Amazon are teaming up to create a great deal that will suit your back-to-school needs, providing smart home convenience that is easy on your wallet and perfectly sized for dorm-style meals. Beginning July 18, this microwave will be bundled with an Amazon Echo Dot and sold at a special low price of $154.98 for a limited time, making it a must-have item on your back-to-school shopping list.

Finance Attitude - 3 Ways to Buy Stock without a Full-Service Broker
Trading a stock is in most cases done via brokerage firms. The investor first finds a reputable brokerage firm to facilitate the process. The full-service broker charges a hefty commission that eats into your investment returns. For these among other reasons, you may be compelled to decide not to use a stockbroker or avoid having a brokerage account to reduce the costs. The direct investment option has some pros and cons which you will need to weigh given your unique circumstances and preferences.  
Finance Attitude - 4 Things To Do Before You Trade Penny Stocks
Penny stocks are shares that are traded for $5 each or less. Majority of these penny stocks are on the major stock exchanges such as NASDAQ, NYSE, American Stock Exchange, and the Bulletin board. The Bulletin Board is the best to get higher quality penny stocks. However, there are a few smaller ones which trade on the dark markets such as Pink Sheets, OTCQX and OTCQB. Focus on the high-quality companies which trade on the major trading exchanges to avoid losses and refrain from trading in the dark markets. Also, avoid free stock picks that promoters are pushing you to buy as they could be scams. Most of the genuine companies increase in size and price without a promoter.
Finance Attitude - 5 incredible investments to supplement Social Security Fund
5 Incredible Investments to Supplement Social Security Fund
Majority of Americans have social security trust funds as an integral part of their investment plans. Investors can include other types of investments to supplement social security funds to accumulate wealth. Here is a list of 5 investments that they can include in their portfolio: 1.    Invest in annuities An annuity is an investment contract where you pay a single lump- sum amount of money called a premium up front or through flexible premium payments over time into a financial institution and in exchange, you get paid a regular income slowly over a period of time. It is a sort of hybrid between investing and life insurance. The payment of the income can start now which is an immediate annuity or in the future which is called deferred annuity. It allows you to convert a portion of your retirement funds into a stream of guaranteed constant income payments for life. For example, you can invest $100,000 up front in exchange for $10,000 annually in payouts. It is one of the safest investment plans where providers are required by state law to protect their outstanding annuity contracts with cash reserves on a dollar for dollar basis. 2.    Invest in a high-yield savings account If you keep your savings in a short-term savings accounts and certificates of deposit (CD), you earn income from the interest rates offered but the rates are very small. There are financial institutions that have better terms and interests if you commit your savings to a larger CD like a five year CD offer, for example, the Jumbo CDs. Whereas the one year CD offers around 1.5% to 1.7% in annual interest, the five years one would offer as much as 2.3% per year. 3.    Invest in bonds Bonds are debts that you lend to a corporate entity or to the government and they pay you back the principal amount plus the interest. The Treasury bonds are issued by the federal government to finance its budget deficits and are offered at lower rates but with no chance of failure to repay you back or rather zero risks of default. The Treasury bond yields on average 2.4% annually. A corporate bond, on the other hand, has better rates to compensate for the likelihood of not getting repaid or higher risk of default. The corporate bond yield is better and can be more than 5.5% annually. 4.    Invest in dividend stocks Invest in dividend stocks as they guarantee investors steady cash dividend payouts and then offer them an opportunity to reinvest the cash dividends to purchase of additional shares or fractional shares of stock on the dividend payment date. This can be a brilliant way to take advantage of the compounding potential because instead of receiving your quarterly dividends, the brokerage firm or the transfer agent plows the payouts directly towards the purchase of additional shares of stock. 5.    Alternative investment Another way to accumulate wealth is through investing in alternative investments like real estate, commodities, cryptocurrency, Art, Wine, peer to peer loans, franchising, comic book, and Hedge funds among others. Most alternative investments have low liquidity, minimum investments and fee structures compared to mutual funds and ETFs. Real estate is an investment that appreciates with time and thus offers an excellent form of investment.
