Believe it or not, recycling your used mattress is easier than you think, but there’s often a common misconception that we should trash them. Who would want our old mattresses, anyway? Turns out, plenty of people. From boxsprings to foam, mattresses contain valuable recyclable material which can be repurposed in a number of ways, including…

Amazon Is Losing This $35 Billion Opportunity To Walmart And Target

Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) is the dominant force in online shopping in the U.S., accounting for about half of Americans’ online spending. But there’s a growing area where Amazon lags well behind competitors like Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Target (NYSE:TGT).

Say goodbye to sleep, AMC is showing all 22 Marvel movies in an insane 59-hour marathon

Now that spring has finally arrived, many of us are rejoicing over the warmer temperatures and the glorious gift of leaving work when the sun is still out. But soon, a select brave (er, insane) few will venture out of the daylight and into darkness to complete an honorable (again, insane) mission: watching every Marvel movie back-to-back for a whole two and a half days. AMC knows MCU fans care little about maintaining healthy vitamin D levels or normal sleep patterns, and are practically incapable of seeing a Marvel movie…
