It’s the last Tuesday of February and also National Banana Bread Day. Centuries from now scientists will come across this period in history and a number will baffle them: the amount of banana bread baked and consumed from March 2020-May 2020. Take a look at other Birmingham business news you’ll find even more appeeling. 

If you didn’t know, now you do:

🌟 Make a splash in your career and join Alabama Adventure and Splash Adventure’s team. The amusement parks are hiring 400+ positions

🌟  According to data collected by the New York Times, over the past week, there has been an average of 845 Alabama COVID-19 cases per day. This is a decrease of 54% from the average two weeks earlier. To keep seeing this number go down, don’t forget to social distance, stay six feet apart and wear your dang mask.
