Union Pacific Stock Vulnerable To Downside Risk After An 80% Rally

Union Pacific stock (NYSE: UNP) is up 12% since the start of the year and it has gained around 78% from its March lows. Union Pacific faces downside risk as the company’s revenues in the last three quarters have declined by 13%. The ongoing Covid-19 crisis and the economic uncertainty has hit the company’s transportation business. This is likely to impact the revenue growth rate of the company – leading to a drop in the stock price.

Following a large 78% rise since the March 23 lows of this year, at the current price near $203 per share, we believe UNP stock has reached its near term potential. UNP stock has rallied from $114 to

New technology helps Merced Union High School District return to in-person learning

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — Thousands of students returned to campuses across the Merced Union High School District on Monday for their first day of in-person learning since mid-March.

To prepare for the transition, the district used more than $730,000 in federal coronavirus relief funding to buy 500 cameras that track movement, along with blue tooth microphones.

The technology allows teachers to deliver lessons to students online and those in the classroom, at the same time.

The district is also using an A-B schedule to allow for in-person learning with social distancing. One group is on campus Monday and Thursday, while the other attends Tuesday and Friday.

Wednesdays alternate each week. Students still rotate classes, and lunch is served at several different stations. Superintendent Alan Peterson says the first priority is helping everyone adjust to the new normal.

He explains, “The focus is to go slow, to go fast, let’s take

A Brief History of Mars Missions

After Mars 1separated from the rocket, it deployed its solar panels and started cruising toward Mars. When mission controllers were checking out the telemetry it transmitted back to Earth, they found out that Mars 1 had sprung a leak in one of the gas valves that controls the spacecraft’s orientation. 

And without a working orientation system, Mars 1 would have a hard time pointing its antennas in the right direction. It lost contact with Earth when it was about halfway to Mars.
