    GETTING a tattoo can be nerve-racking, especially as any mistakes can be permanent. One woman showed how she asked for a cute tattoo - but the artist made a VERY obvious spelling mistake. 2A woman asked for a cute tattoo that said 'divine feminine', but the artist made a very glaring spelling mistakeCredit: TikTok/@emilyamccollum 2The tattoo artist wrote 'femimne' and tried to add a rose to cover up the mistakeCredit: TikTok/@emilyamccollum The woman had asked for the phrase “Divine Feminine” but the artist had accidentally written “Femimne.” To try and cover up the spelling error, the artist then drew a rose over the incorrect second “m”.

    Silhouette's of commuters and tourists as they make their way through Grand Central Terminal in New York City during the morning rush hour.Timothy A. Clary | AFP | Getty Images The U.S. unemployment rate for Black and Hispanic women rose sharply last month even as overall joblessness in the country held steady. The overall job market saw the headline unemployment rate hold at 3.6% as the economy added 390,000 jobs, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Friday. That unemployment rate was in line with April's, and the job additions surpassed a Dow Jones estimate of 328,000. However, the unemployment rate among Black and Hispanic women over 20 years old increased sharply to 5.9% and 4.7%, respectively, up from 5% and 3.8% in April. "These inequities absolutely existed before the pandemic," said Elise Gould, a senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute. "When we talk about returning to pre-pandemic levels, sure, we're getting pretty close to that but that just bakes in the disparities we had in the pre-pandemic labor market and that's just not good enough." The unemployment rate for...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Pay packages for the women who run S&P 500 companies jumped in 2021 as the economy recovered and stock prices and profits soared. Median pay for the women occupying the corner office rose to nearly $16 million, according to the annual survey done by Equilar for The Associated Press. Still, experts say there’s much more to be done to improve gender diversity in the corporate ranks and close the pay gap between men and women. Jane Stevenson, vice chair, Board & CEO Services at organizational consulting firm Korn Ferry said while it is good that women CEO’s pay rose, there is still a lot to be done. “I think the danger is to look at those cases of CEOs making more their peers and see a message about the pay gap being closed – it’s not,” she said. Of the 340 CEOs in the latest survey of S&P 500 companies, 18 were women, up from 16 in 2020. Profits for S&P 500 companies rose roughly 50% and the index gained about 27%. Because the bulk of...

    NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. births bumped up last year, but the number of babies born was still lower than before the coronavirus pandemic. The small 1% increase was a bit of a rebound from 2020, the first year of the pandemic, which witnessed the largest one-year drop in the U.S. births in nearly 50 years. But there were still about 86,000 fewer births last year than in 2019, according to a government report released Tuesday. “We’re still not returning to pre-pandemic levels,” said Dr. Denise Jamieson, chair of gynecology and obstetrics at Emory University School of Medicine. U.S. births had been declining for more than a decade before COVID-19 hit, and “I would expect that we would continue to see small, modest decreases,” she said. Officials think last year’s uptick reflects births from pregnancies that had been put off during the uncertain early days of the pandemic. Deliveries were way down in January 2021, but improved as the year went on, said Brady Hamilton of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Much of the increase...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Walmart reported stronger sales for the first quarter, but its profits took a beating as the nation’s largest retailer grappled with surging inflation on food and fuel and higher costs from a snarled global supply chain. Walmart on Tuesday reported earnings of $2.05 billion, or 74 cents per share. Adjusted earnings per share was $1.30, but that’s still far short of the per-share earnings of $1.48 that Wall Street had expected, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research. It also fell below last year’s earnings of $2.73 billion, or 97 cents per share Sales rose 2.4% to $141.57. The government reported last week that inflation eased slightly in April after months of relentless increases. Consumer prices jumped 8.3% last month from a year ago, below the 8.5% surge in March, but it remains very close to a four-decade high. And there are sobering signs that inflation may be becoming more entrenched. Excluding the volatile food and energy categories, so-called core prices jumped twice as much from March to April as they did the previous...
    A WOMAN, who got pregnant at 16, hid her pregnancy from friends and family for eight months and was told by doctors she’d never make anything of her life. Asahela Rose, now 31, from London explained that although she was pregnant at such a young age, she was more worried about telling her family than how she’d provide for her child. 5Asahela Rose became pregnant with her daughter Shamaya when she was 16Credit: Asahela Rose 5Asahela Rose had her baby and went straight back to college to finish her educationCredit: Asahela Rose The young mum felt judged, even by medical professionals and was concerned by the response she would get.

    Real estate listingsAdam Jeffery | CNBC A brief calm in the midst of a rising interest rate storm boosted weekly mortgage demand ever so slightly last week, but it is unlikely to be the start of a new trend. Rates have already moved sharply higher this week. Total mortgage application volume rose 2.5% for the week ended April 29 compared with the previous week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association's seasonally adjusted index. That was because mortgage rates took a very slight step back, and the spring housing market entered its historically busiest time. The average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances ($647,200 or less) decreased to 5.36% from 5.37%, with points falling to 0.63 from 0.67 (including the origination fee) for loans with a 20% down payment. That rate was 218 basis points lower the same week one year ago. Rates shot significantly higher at the start of this week. The few borrowers who would benefit from a refinance took their chance. Refinance applications rose for the week but were still 71% lower than...
    Suicides among American teenagers rose during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, data from a study shows — but rates fell among adults. Researchers, led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Boston, found there were 903 suicides among 10 to 19-year-olds across 14 states in 2020 — up eight percent on the 835 suicides average for the previous five years. For comparison, the number of suicides recorded overall fell two percent to 13,900 over the first year of Covid, from about 14,200 previously. Scientists warned youngsters struggling with bereavement after losing parents and grandparents to Covid may have led to the rise. They called for more funding for children's bereavement services. The U.S. has recorded nearly a million deaths from Covid since March 2020, the most out of any country in the world.

Not so much.While consumer prices are rising faster than they have in more than 40 years, health care inflation has remained rather muted.The Consumer Price Index rose 8.5% in the 12 months that ended in March, propelled mainly by increases in energy, food and housing, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.By contrast, health care inflation has generally hovered around its historical trend of around 2%, said Corey Rhyan, senior analyst for health economics and policy at Altarum, a nonprofit research and consulting group.

    NEW YORK -- The highly anticipated season finale of "The Bachelor" certainly packed drama as promised. But to find out the full story, we'll have to watch Tuesday night as well.

    U.S. job openings increased to near record highs in December amid a severe worker shortage that could be hampering growth. Job openings, a measure of labor demand, rose 150,000 to 10.9 million on the last day of December, not far from the all-time high of 11.098 million reached in July, the Labor Department said on Tuesday.  The data suggest companies were still desperate to hire workers last month, yet had trouble finding enough people to fill their open jobs.  About 4.3 million people quit their jobs in December, the government's report said, down slightly from a record of 4.5 million in November.  Still, far more Americans are leaving their jobs than before the pandemic, a trend known as the 'Great Resignation' and a positive sign, because most people who quit are leaving for a better-paying job.  Job openings, a measure of labor demand, rose 150,000 to 10.9 million on the last day of December, not far from the all-time high of 11.098 million reached in July A help wanted sign appears outside a store in a shopping mall in Gurnee,...
    McDonald’s ended 2021 on a high note with U.S. customers spending more and fewer restaurant closures in Europe from coronavirus restrictions. The Chicago burger giant said global same-store sales __ or sales at restaurants open at least a year __ rose 12.3% in the quarter. That’s better than the 10.5% increase that Wall Street was expecting, according to analysts polled by FactSet. In the U.S., same-store sales rose 7.5% as limited-time products like the McRib drew customers despite higher menu prices. McDonald’s said in the fall that U.S. prices would be 6% higher in 2021 than the prior year. Revenue rose 13% to $6.01 billion, which was just shy of Wall Street expectations, according to a survey of industry analysts by FactSet, with sales crimped by coronavirus restrictions in Australia and China. But McDonald’s was still stung by rising prices and higher labor costs, which cut into profits. The Chicago company reported adjusted earnings of $2.23 per share, 11 cents short of Wall Street expectations. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be...

    After many childhood years spent camping overnight along the Rose Parade route to score a front-row view, Leslie Lemus was stunned when she arrived in Pasadena just before sunrise Saturday and found two things practically unheard of in years past: nearby parking and plenty of sidewalk space. “You get, like, VIP views!” Lemus, 29, of Downey, told her 8-year-old daughter as they plopped camping chairs along Colorado Boulevard in the Pasadena Playhouse District. “I’m surprised there aren’t more people,” said Lemus, who wore a black surgical mask as she peered at sidewalks that typically would be jam-packed long before the parade began. Blame the coronavirus. The Rose Parade returned Saturday after the pandemic forced its first cancellation since World War II last year. And while it was seen by many as a whimsical respite from two painful pandemic years, the return was clouded by a dramatic surge in coronaviruscases fueled by the highly contagious Omicron variant. Across the country, other New Year’s events were scaled back or canceled as the virus continued its unrelenting march. California Photos:...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Americans slowed their spending in November from October, but continued shopping despite higher prices and shortages in stores. Retail sales rose a modest seasonally adjusted 0.3% in November from the month before when sales rose a revised 1.8%, the U.S. Commerce Department said Wednesday, a bit weaker than most economists had expected. Online sales were unchanged last month, while sales at department stores fell 5.4%. Sales did increase even with retailers facing a host of challenges. Many have had to sharply raise pay to find and keep workers, thereby increasing their labor costs. And some are scrambling amid overwhelmed supply chains to keep their shelves stocked. And shoppers are also dealing with higher costs. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.

    LAS VEGAS — Utah’s second bludgeoning of Oregon in two weeks finalized the conference hierarchy but not the Pac-12’s bowl picture. If anything, the situation has become a tad murkier, partly because of what happened on the field at Allegiant Stadium — a 38-10 victory for the Utes — and partly because of the situation that could transpire off the field. We know Utah is headed to the Rose Bowl for the first time in school history and likely will face Ohio State. But the Alamo Bowl’s situation might be more complicated. Because of Pac-12 selection policy, the Alamo has its choice of Oregon, Washington State, Arizona State and UCLA. The Ducks were the presumptive pick for San Antonio if they lost the conference championship — they would own the best record (10-3) and would be the highest-ranked team of the four options.

But workers are still losing out to inflation on an annual basis. The employment cost index jumped 1.3 percent from the prior quarter, according to Labor Department data released Friday. The gauge increased 3.7 percent from a year earlier. Wages and salaries, which make up 70 percent of overall compensation, increased 4.2 percent for the 12-month period ending in September 2021, a big acceleration from the 12-month period ending a year ago. Compared with the second quarter, wages were up 1.3 percent.  The cost of benefits rose 2.5 percent compared with 12 months ago, and 0.9 percent compared with the second quarter. The Consumer Price Index, the Labor Department’s inflation metric, rose up 5.4 percent over the 12 months ending in September. Another measure of inflation, which gauges the changes in prices paid by wage earners and clerical workers, was up 5.9 percent. The Department of Labor said wages and salaries fell 1.1 percent...
    The fall of new coronavirus infections gave a boost to consumer confidence in October but inflation fears are still rising, the Conference Board said Tuesday. “While short-term inflation concerns rose to a 13-year high, the impact on confidence was muted. The proportion of consumers planning to purchase homes, automobiles, and major appliances all increased in October—a sign that consumer spending will continue to support economic growth through the final months of 2021,” said Lynn Franco, the senior director of economic indicators at the Conference Board. The group’s measure of consumer confidence rose to 113.8 from an upwardly revised 10.9.8 score for September. The prior month had initially been reported as one half of a percentage point lower. This was the first increase in consumer confidence following three months of declines. “Consumer confidence improved in October, reversing a three-month downward trend as concerns about the spread of the Delta variant eased,” said Franco. Franco described consumers’ appraisals of current business conditions as “mixed” for October. The share saying business conditions are good declined to 18.6 percent from 19.1 percent, while the...
    The 25 best Halloween films of all time The pros and cons of brick-and-mortar banks vs. online banks As a teen, Jordan Brand chairman Larry Miller shot and killed a man. He's kept that truth buried, until now. The mementos lining Larry Miller’s office suggest a life of comfort and privilege, of celebrated achievements and celebrity friendships. The autographed red boxing gloves from Muhammad Ali. The commemorative basketball from President Obama. The signed notes from Michael Jordan. This plush suite, tucked into a quiet corner of the Sebastian Coe building, on Nike’s sprawling campus in Beaverton, Ore., is the primary sanctuary for the man who has piloted the Jordan Brand since 2012, who counts MJ as a close friend and David Stern as a mentor and who has nearly every major figure in basketball (along with Kanye West) on speed dial. You could spend hours admiring it all, without a single hint of the dark chapter that preceded the journey. Of the years Miller spent in prison, or the horrifying act that put him there. Of a September evening...

    TOKYO (AP) — Asian shares gained Tuesday, boosted by a near-record rise on Wall Street, though the momentum began to fizzle out over worries about the economic fallout from surging coronavirus infections in the region. Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 rose 0.9% to finish at 27,732.10. South Korea’s Kospi gained 1.6% to 3,139.86. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 rose 0.2% to 7,503.00. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng added 1.8% to 25,559.67, while the Shanghai Composite was up 1.1% at 3,513.52. Some parts of Asia have had slower vaccine rollouts than the U.S. and Europe and are at a greater risk for the more contagious delta variant. “Outbreaks in Asia Pacific have led to new containment measures, disrupting production and trade in a region that accounts for 37% of global merchandise exports,” said Sara Johnson, executive director, global economics, IHS Markit. “Asia Pacific’s manufacturing hubs are the current hotspots for COVID-19.” She noted vaccination campaigns outside mainland China have been slow in Asia, hurting consumer spending, tourism, industrial production and exports. The IHS Markit manufacturing PMI surveys for July show deteriorating...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland recorded 7% more residents in the 2020 U.S. Census than in the 2010 count, according to data released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. Maryland’s population rose from 5,773,553 to 6,177,224 over the decade. READ MORE: Harford County Schools Will Require Students, Staff To Wear Masks The state count is slightly lower than the numbers used for apportionment of congressional representatives since those numbers include overseas U.S. citizens who previously lived in Maryland. The Census helps determine how federal funds are spent on things like education, infrastructure and health care. “Despite these challenges, the participation of 2.2 million households in the 2020 Census and Maryland’s number nine self-response ranking of all states means critical federal funding for our state over the next ten years,” Gov. Larry Hogan said in a statement. “The Census data will also be used for the upcoming redistricting process. Free and fair elections are the foundation of American democracy and it’s time for leaders on both sides of the aisle to end the practice of gerrymandering.” Hogan has called for nonpartisan redistricting reform,...
