Marketing Strategy
Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) stock has declined over 40% in the past year, as investors turned away from weak sales and headwinds across the department store sector. Revenue in the first half of the retailer's fiscal 2019 decreased 4.1% year over year to $7.3 billion. The bulk of that shortfall came from Nordstrom's full-price sales, which fell 5.9% in the same period.

On Oct. 24, Nordstrom opened its largest flagship store in New York City, a key piece of its new strategy to drive traffic and attract customers.

Self Help
A recent National Mental Health survey indicated that one in twenty adults may be suffering from clinical depression in India. Yet, many are hesitant to get the help needed. “There is a lot of stigma associated with depression and other mental health illnesses. As a result, many people are afraid of even letting their loved ones know that they need help,” explains Dr Rizwana Begum, psychological counsellor and psychotherapist with Aviva Clinic.Lack of mental health services, along with a lack of awareness, has also created a huge gap between those in need and those offering help.

Things To Learn: Notre Dame’s motivation or lack thereof – NBCSports.com

Motivation
Notre Dame can either finish the season strong, reach 10-plus wins for the fourth time in five years and maintain its status in college football’s competitive second tier behind the perennial Playoff teams … or … the No. 16 Irish can fold, mail in the rest of the season, still likely win at least three of their final five and hope for a favorable bowl matchup. When it comes to undeniable, borderline-tangible motivations in this sport, there is only one, and Notre Dame no longer has the carrot of a Playoff berth to chase. All that is left is the more figurative, the pride, the want-to, the internal spark.

Self Help
LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston Parent Self-Help Support Group (LPSHSG) is officially disbanding in November 2019 after more than 35 years of helping local parents who experience challenges with their children.
