By Tim Paradis, AP Business Writer On 4:23 pm EDT, Wednesday October 28, 2009 NEW YORK (AP) -- Signs of a weaker housing market and a gloomier outlook on the economy gave investors more reasons to dump stocks. Major market indexes fell Wednesday after the Commerce Department said new home sales dropped for the first time in five months. Sales dropped 3.6 percent in September to 402,000. Analysts had expected an increase. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 119 points, or 1.2 percent. The Nasdaq composite index slid 2.7 percent, while the Russell 2000 index of smaller companies tumbled 3.5 percent. Many of the stocks in both indexes are considered more risky and so they suffered some of the biggest losses.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
