    Traders on the floor of the NYSE, July 12, 2022.Source: NYSE Investors are likely to switch their focus to earnings season, after the market's wild ride on rising and falling expectations for Federal Reserve rate hikes. Stocks were volatile in the past week. The three major indexes posted sharp gains Friday, after worries the Fed would raise rates by a full point this month faded. Still, stocks notched weekly losses, with the S&P 500 was down nearly a percent at 3,863.16. A surprise 9.1% year-over-year jump in June consumer inflation Wednesday drove speculation the Fed would be willing to battle rising prices by going beyond the three-quarter point hike, anticipated on July 27. But by Friday, comments from Fed officials, a surprise 1% gain in June retail sales, and some better data on consumer inflation expectations reversed those expectations in the futures market. "It really was a great study in mob psychology. We went into the week with a 92% chance it was a 75 basis point hike, and we exited Wednesday with an 82% chance it was going to...

    New York (CNN Business)The jobs market is still healthy and paychecks are growing at a solid rate — although not fast enough to make up for surging prices on just about everything. That means that the Federal Reserve is increasingly certain to raise interest rates in May by a half-point to halt inflation in its tracks.Traders are pricing in a more than 75% chance that the Fed will lift its key short-term rate from its current range of 0.25% to 0.5% up to 0.75% to 1% when the central bank wraps up its next meeting on May 4. JUST WATCHEDThe Fed raised rates, but can it catch up with inflation?ReplayMore Videos ...MUST WATCHThe Fed raised rates, but can it catch up with inflation? 05:45A half-point rate hike is highly unusual. Although the Fed has often cut rates by that amount to stimulate the economy, it is exceedingly rare for the Fed to raise rates so aggressively. The Fed usually prefers gradual quarter-point hikes so it can slow inflation without raising the risk of a slump in growth or a recession.In...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — It only took hours for a massive Bullmastiff mix at the Sacramento SPCA to find his forever home — and now an even bigger dog is set to go up for adoption. Dom, a 185-pound pooch who the Sacramento SPCA believes to be around six-years-old, had just been put up for adoption Friday. And Dom found a new family not even 24 hours later.

Dom had arrived at the shelter as a stray, but he didn’t arrive alone. According to the shelter, Kenai — a 191-pound Malamute mix — also arrived as a stray at the same time.

    WAYNE, Pa. (CBS) — A hobby long thought to be that of a bygone era, is now making a major comeback. Trading cards aren’t just for sports fans anymore, and at a Wayne card shop, they mean big business. Step in and check it out. They’re the greatest of all time: Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James, all in one place.

But the pandemic has had the opposite effect on the hobby of collecting trading cards. “During the pandemic, sports cards took off,” he said, adding it became “America’s hobby again.” A life-long fan of the hobby himself, Spadaford saw an opening and took it. “I had to drive an hour in any direction to find a...
    A woman with the 'biggest lips in the world' is further enhancing her pout this Christmas by getting her lips injected for the 27th time. Andrea Ivanova, 24, from Sofia, Bulgaria hopes the injections will help her look more like a Bratz doll. Bigger lips aren't the only part of the makeover – Andrea recently paid a visit to her doctor for a face lengthening and contouring procedure in order to alter the shape of her chin and jawline, costing her around £500. Her next steps towards resembling a Bratz doll include more plastic surgery to shape and enlarge her cheekbones. Andrea's large lips haven't only increased her self confidence, they've also caught the attention of thousands of instagram users as she frequently posts updates on her unique look to her 8,828 followers.

    The Best Men’s Christmas Pajamas for Spreading Holiday Cheer Around the Clock Former Chicago Bulls player Corey Benjamin apologizes after daughter punches opponent Yellowstone The already very big season four premiere of Yellowstone tacked on even more viewers in the three days after its debut. Per Nielsen figures, the drama has a cumulative audience of 14.7 million viewers over three days, including a simulcast three other ViacomCBS channels (CMT, TV Land and Pop) and same-night replays. The bump from delayed viewing pushed the show past NBC’s Sunday Night Football (14.3 million) in the three-day ratings. On Paramount Network alone, the premiere grew to 10.5 million viewers, a jump of about 2.38 million (29 percent) over the 8.12 million who watched on Sunday. It’s up by about 61 percent over the season three premiere (6.5 million) in June 2020. The simulcast on CMT, TV Land and Pop added 2.2 million more viewers to the total over three days, and replays supplied the remaining 2 million. ViacomCBS also managed to bring in such big numbers without the benefit of streaming. Yellowstone...
    Former president Donald Trump is touting the efforts of his supporters, alleging that they are responsible for gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin's successes in Virginia. 'I would like to thank my BASE for coming out in force and voting for Glenn Youngkin. Without you, he would not have been close to winning,' Trump said in a statement Tuesday night. 'The MAGA movement is bigger and stronger than ever before. Glenn will be a great governor.' Although the race had not yet been called Trump thanked Virginians, and particularly his 'incredible MAGA voters' for showing up to the polls.  He said: 'It is looking like Terry McAuliffe's campaign against a certain person named “Trump” has very much helped Glenn Youngkin. All McAuliffe did was talk Trump, Trump, Trump and he lost! What does that tell you, Fake News?  'I guess people running for office as Democrats won’t be doing that too much longer. I didn’t even have to go rally for Youngkin, because McAuliffe did it for me. Thank you to the MAGA voters for turning out big!'   Youngkin was declared the...
    Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming (L) and GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California (R) GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's no-good, very bad week just got a lot worse. CNN is reporting McCarthy is now officially among the list of GOP lawmakers for whom the House Select Committee wants their Jan. 6 phone records preserved. In addition, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming—the person who has effectively made it her mission to keep McCarthy from becoming Speaker—has been appointed vice chair of the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol siege. “Every member of this committee is dedicated to conducting a non-partisan, professional, and thorough investigation of all the relevant facts regarding January 6th and the threat to our Constitution we faced that day,” Cheney said in a statement. “I have accepted the position of Vice Chair of the committee to assure that we achieve that goal.” The news comes during a week in which House Republicans flipped into full panic mode over the possibility that the private communications of about a dozen GOP members on Jan. 6 could eventually be made public.

    The calendar shows that it’s June, but Christmas in the Park Executive Director Jason Minsky already has the holidays on his mind. That’s because the beloved San Jose tradition will be coming back even bigger this year — with a return of the walk-through event at downtown’s Plaza de Cesar Chavez and a separate drive-through event at Lake Cunningham Park. “People are going to see a big difference at both events,” he said. “We’re bringing some of the light show element downtown, and for people who went to the drive-through last year, this year will be definitely different.” Plans for the free downtown event include a 65-foot-high walk-through Christmas tree, two new rides, a beer-and-wine garden called Blinky’s Lodge, and the return of Santa Claus visits. While it was forced by the COVID-19 pandemic, last year’s drive-through event was wildly popular — maybe too popular at times. It’s moving this year from History Park to Lake Cunningham partly because of the huge traffic mess the event created on Senter Road last year. About a third fewer tickets will be sold,...
    TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Baylor more than lived up to its top-seeded billing, pulling away from No. 3 Arkansas early and then again the second the game got uncomfortably close. The Bears booked a spot in the Final Four come Saturday against No. 2 Houston, which had a much tougher time shaking free from 11th-seeded Oregon State. The Bears’ win was more commanding than it looked; even opposing coach Eric Musselman conceded “they played phenomenal tonight.” The other side of the bracket is in action Tuesday, with overall top seed Gonzaga facing No 6 USC, and the final No. 1, Michigan, taking on 11th seeded UCLA.
    Another contender emerged from the mist at the NCAA Tournament — nothing dramatic, mind you, like in the movies, because we already knew No. 1 seed Baylor was very good. But so was third-seeded Arkansas. Yet the Bears ran the Razorbacks into the ground early and then again when it got close, posting a comfortable 81-72 win that demonstrated they’re much, much better than good and in the mood for bigger game. They won’t have to wait long. Baylor faces No. 2 Houston, which nearly blew a 17-point lead before shaking off 11th-seeded Oregon State 67-61, come Saturday for a spot in the national championship game. Cougar fans have until then to revel in the memories of Houston’s great “Phi Slamma Jamma” tournament teams of the early 80s, but they could be in for a rude awakening. Because this is how Arkansas coach Eric Musselman began his postgame news conference: “Just want to give Baylor a ton of credit. I thought that they played phenomenal tonight, especially offensively.” Baylor is fast, tenacious, long armed and when everything is...
    BORIS Johnson hinted he could tie the knot with fiancée Carrie Symonds when lockdown is lifted. Asked if he was planning a summer wedding, the PM told The Sun: “The wedding industry is certainly gonna come roaring back in common with many other sectors of the economy.” ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates... 5Boris Johnson said the wedding industry will come 'roaring back' in summerCredit: Getty The sound of wedding bells came after weeks of a Downing Street turf war which has seen hostile briefings aimed at Ms Symonds. But Mr Johnson rejected claims his team were at each others throats, instead describing No10 as a “nest of singing birds”. However in a coded warning to the warring Tory tribes, the PM said the British public expect the government to be “mono-maniacally" dealing with the Covid pandemic. He said: “I think what the people of this country want and deserve - and are getting - is a government totally focused on rolling out the vaccination programme that I think most impartial observers would say has...
    U.S. sues Teva over alleged kickbacks for multiple sclerosis drug British retailer M&S to slash 7,000 jobs over the next 3 months following COVID-19 sales slump After validating PGA performance, Bryson DeChambeau aims even bigger for playoffs So content was Bryson DeChambeau with his career-best fourth-place finish at the PGA Championship that he ... grinded for nine hours on the range last weekend, trying to take his game to even greater heights. © Provided by Golf Channel Forever in search of a new “nugget,” DeChambeau said he found something in those marathon sessions that should help him this week at The Northern Trust.   “I think I’ve figured something out in the golf swing that will hopefully help me hit it a little straighter,” he said Tuesday. “That would be nice." His length, of course, has not been the issue since he added roughly 40 pounds of muscle over the past year. He currently leads the PGA Tour in average driving distance, at 323.9 yards. But there were a few examples at TPC Harding Park in which DeChambeau felt...

    Last month, biotech firm Moderna Therapeutics reported very, very early positive results from a Phase 2 trial of their COVID-19 vaccine. This week it was the turn of more established drug maker Pfizer to announce that their vaccine showed similar promise and that they were also heading into Phase 3 studies in the next two weeks. These two vaccines are just two of better than 80 vaccine efforts that have been announced around the world.   Some of the vaccines out there are quite conventional in terms of historic efforts, like an inactivated virus vaccine being trialed by China’s Sinopharm or the Oxford vaccine that leverages a virus normally found in chimpanzees to host fragments of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The Sinopharm vaccine is finishing up Phase 2 trials, while Oxford began recruiting Phase 3 volunteers back in May and is working to test their vaccine in multiple regions. But in the U. S. it’s Moderna and Pfizer that are leading the chase. Both of them may be successful, but there are definitely reasons for concern. Moderna has only been around since 2010. It...
    There are now more than 120 companies participating in the boycott, according to a spreadsheet tracking the names. Some companies, like Coca-Cola, are opting to pause their Facebook ads, but are not explicitly joining the boycott. For the month of July, American Honda is withholding its advertising on Facebook and Instagram. We choose to stand with people united against hate and racism. This is in alignment with our company’s values, which are grounded in human respect. #StopHateForProfit — HondaInclusion (@HondaInclusion) June 26, 2020 “There is no place for racism in the world and there is no place for racism on social media,” CEO James Quincey said in a statement to CNBC. “The Coca-Cola Company will pause paid advertising on all social media platforms globally for at least 30 days. We will take this time to reassess our advertising policies to determine whether revisions are needed. We also expect greater accountability and transparency from our social media partners.” Officially boycotting or not, increased calls for transparency will ratchet up the pressure on Facebook to do more to assuage...
    New York Jets: Suddenly, 2020 becomes an even bigger year for Marcus Maye By: Geoff Magliocchetti June 22, 2020 ShareTweet0 SharesAs things deteriorate between the New York Jets and Jamal Adams, fellow safety Marcus Maye has a big opportunity to take over the secondary. If and when we get a 2020 NFL season, green eyes of New York Jets observers will be on an SEC-based safety and 2017 draftee. The object of their perusal? Former Florida Gator Marcus Maye. The Jamal Adams roller-coaster is preparing to sink into its deepest valley, as the two-time All-Pro has repeatedly declared that “it’s time to move on”, presumably from New York. Time will only tell how this ride ends…especially with the Jets holding most, if not all, of the leverage cards…but in this of New York uncertainty, Maye’s prescience undoubtedly looms even larger. Prior to the reported Adams trade request, Maye was perhaps seen as one of the Jets’ more expendable starters. An uncertain cap situation and good amounts of money due to 2019 splurges Le’Veon Bell and C.J. Mosley...
