Futures contracts tied to the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 were little changed. During regular trading Tuesday, the Dow surged 641 points, or 2.15%. The S&P 500 added 2.45%, turning in its best day since May 4. The jump comes after the benchmark index slumped 5.79% last week in its worst weekly performance since March 2020. The Nasdaq Composite advanced 2.51% on Tuesday, following its tenth week of losses in the last 11 weeks. Growing fears that the economy will tip into a recession have recently weighed on stocks. The Federal Reserve last week hiked interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point, the central bank's largest rate increase since 1994. The move came as the Fed tries to cool inflation, which has surged to a 40-year high. "We don't see a U.S. or global...
    Corners have identified the hiker who died of a heart attack last week in Los Angeles' Will Rogers State Historic Park as a famous Beverly Hills OBGYN. Dr. Jay Goldberg, 53, was hiking in the mountainous park in LA's Pacific Palisades on May 29 when he suffered a heart attack and was declared dead on the scene by responding paramedics, CBS reported.  Goldberg's clients included the wife of musician John Mellencamp, Teddi Mellencamp of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the wife of NFL star Marcellus Wiley.  After the Cedar Sinai doctor was identified, many of his celebrity patients took to social media to praise Goldberg.

    WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (KGO) -- California water officials say saving water is a must right now because of the drought.But an owner of an East Bay landscaping company says his business has been booming with people working to fix their irrigation systems.RELATED: Despite pleas for conservation, California's March water usage jumped nearly 19%"Usually the first three months is pretty slow," says Jon Meyers of Meyers Landscaping.Meyers says that is not the case this year. The record dry weather has pushed his clients to start watering their lawns earlier and more often, and because of that, he's been busy."My irrigation repairs have increased by almost 300 percent for the first quarter January through March," says Meyers.But no leaking water in Jill Proctor's yard.VIDEO: State lawmaker calls for audit after California 'loses' billions of gallons of waterEMBED More News Videos The amount of water that was "lost" is estimated to be 700,000-acre-feet -- that's roughly 228 billion gallons of water.

    A Bank of America analyst warned that the U.S. economy is deteriorating fast and could push the country into a recession just three days after Deutsche Bank predicted the fall to come in 2023 as the Federal Reserve tightens interest rates to tame surging inflation.   BofA chief investment strategist Michael Hartnett wrote in a note to clients: ''Inflation shock' worsening, 'rates shock' just beginning, 'recession shock' coming.' He added that in this context cash, volatility, commodities and cryptocurrencies could outperform bonds and stocks, a typical precursor to an economic recession. The Federal Reserve on Wednesday signaled it will likely start culling assets from its $9 trillion balance sheet at its meeting in early May and will do so at nearly twice the pace it did in its previous 'quantitative tightening' exercise as it confronts inflation rates running at a four-decade high hitting nearly 8 percent. A large majority of investors also expect the central bank to hike its key interest rate by 50 basis point. Deutsche, the first major bank to offer the negative forecast on Tuesday, said the recession will...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — A half-dozen U.S. lobbying firms severed ties with Russian-linked businesses over the past week, a dramatic pullback for an industry that often has few qualms about representing controversial interests. The rush offers a measure of the potency of the Biden administration’s new sanctions, which were levied after Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine last week. They make it difficult, if not outright illegal, for U.S. companies to do business with Russia-based ones. Firms including McLarty Associates, BGR Group and Venable LLP abruptly canceled arrangements that have collectively yielded millions of dollars in lobbying fees in recent years, records show. Among their former clients are investors and operators for the now-canceled Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, which was supposed to deliver Russian gas to Germany, as well as Russian state-controlled banks and others. Thus far, it’s reversed the normal order of business when war breaks out, which often spurs foreign governments to enlist Washington-based firms to lobby the U.S. government, a review of lobbying records shows. “These lobbying firms and lobbyists...

During the week of Sept. 19 through Sept. 25, Adult Day centers across the country celebrate the week by hosting engaging events for their members and staff. Adult Day week has been celebrated annually since it was proclaimed Sept. 27, 1983, by former President Ronald Reagan. The third complete week of September is set aside to raise awareness of the availability and accessibility of Adult Day programs nationwide. “We are proud to be here,” Adult Day Coordinator Jamie Williams said. “We have been here for 23 years and are the only Adult Day within Scioto County that is specifically for senior citizens.” In honor of Adult Day week, Scioto County Adult Day members held special events throughout the week, including making root beer floats, a pizza party, celebrating the first day of fall and other events to make the week special for everyone who attends the center.

    Editor’s note: Psychologist John Duffy, author of “Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety,” practices in Chicago. He specializes in work with teens, parents, couples and families. I worked recently with a 25-year-old man struggling at his job. He described difficulty thinking clearly and missing too many days. And his relationship with his girlfriend was nearly over due to his admitted neglect. Diagnosed with both depression and anxiety, he said he felt disengaged in his life. He had been in therapy before for a couple of years, and had tried medications for depression, anxiety and attention issues. Nothing seemed to work. I asked one question that I always ask: How’s your sleep? I wasn’t surprised when he told me his sleep patterns were “terrible.” He would sleep four to six hours per night during the week, staying up until 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. on social media, or binge-watching a TV show. He tried to make up for sleep on weekends but sometimes woke up feeling even more tired. His sleeping patterns were established in childhood and...

    (CBS4) – A week after Ida’s devastating blow, the damage in the Gulf Coast is extensive and hundreds of thousands remain without power. It’s a scene Brian Daley, task force leader with Colorado Task Force 1 saw firsthand.  “I don’t think the impact was as much as it would be, but it was very widespread, and there were a lot of areas that had poor access, a lot of areas that had literally no utilities, no infrastructure whatsoever,” Daley said.   (credit: CBS) Last Saturday, Daley, 44 other task force members, and two K-9s deployed to Louisiana in preparation for the storm. They originally set up in Metairie, a northwest suburb of New Orleans, but in the days that followed rendered aid in harder hit areas.   In the suburbs just south of New Orleans, the team went door to door this week, checking on people who remained. After that, they packed up and went to Grand Isle, one of the hardest hit areas along the coast.   “We did a lot of humanitarian aid, talking to people, giving them water, giving them some of...

    Bitcoin banners are seen outside of a small restaurant at El Zonte Beach in Chiltiupan, El Salvador June 8, 2021.Jose Cabezas | Reuters Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego wants to make Banco Azteca the first lender in the country to do business in bitcoin.

The price of bitcoin climbed into the $34,000 range later Sunday, following a small crash late Friday that wiped out its gains for the week. Bitcoin last traded at 34,629.07, up 5.5% Monday.

    New York (CNN)After a hype-filled week for cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin experienced a flash crash over the weekend, plunging nearly 14% in less than an hour, from about $59,000 to $51,000, on Saturday night before rebounding. Other popular cryptocurrencies including etherium and Dogecoin also fell dramatically, before recouping some of their losses. Bitcoin has skyrocketed in value this year as it gained more mainstream acceptance, but the sharp price fall this weekend seems to have been triggered by an unconfirmed Twitter rumor that the US Treasury was planning to crack down on money laundering schemes involving cryptocurrencies. The agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Sunday.Bitcoin's rapid overnight plunge is the latest indicator that the crypto market remains wildly volatile. Last week crypto enthusiasm seemed to reach a peak as trading platform Coinbase went public at a valuation of $86 billion, followed by a wild 500% rally in Dogecoin — an asset that was created as a joke in 2013. Cryptocurrency backers have spent years insisting that bitcoin, ethereum and other digital coins could revolutionize the world of...

    GameStop shares bounce up to 36% this Friday after falling more than 42% on Thursday, bringing the video game retailer’s losses for the week to more than 77%. The recent rise takes place after the Robinhood trading app withdraw some of its trading limits on the value. GameStop experienced a meteoric rise last week thanks to a big choke off the shorts, orchestrated by Reddit users. Retail investors flocked to the video game firm in bankruptcy in the US, shooting its share price 400%, while hedge funds scrambled to cover their losses from the short sale of the shares. Short selling is a strategy in which investors borrow shares in a security at a certain price with the expectation that the market value will fall below that level when it is time to buy back the borrowed shares they have sold. Robinhood, Millennials’ Favorite Trading App, which began restricting the trading of a handful of shares last week amid increased capital requirements from the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, now allows clients to buy up to 500 shares of...
    The logo of trading app Robinhood is displayed on a smartphone.Olivier Douliery | AFP via Getty Images A U.S. consumer watchdog saw a surge in complaints regarding Robinhood last week, with some clients claiming they were unable to liquidate holdings and move to other brokerage firms. The Federal Trade Commission received more than 100 Robinhood-related reports from January 24th through February 2, according to the agency. The prior week brought in seven such complaints. Agency data on other firms were not immediately available. Last week was chaotic for trading platforms as investors piled into GameStop, AMC and other high-flying stocks. Robinhood restricted trading of as many as 50 names due to the volatility, and has since lifted those limits. The move saw backlash from users and lawmakers that accused Robinhood of market manipulation, and siding with hedge funds managers who shorted those stocks. The start-up said it did not make those decisions based on relationships with market makers, and needed to limit the buy-side so it could meet capital requirements.'The void'Many of the FTC complaints highlight those trading limits, but...

    The rest of the world may have been shocked and appalled when New Yorker writer Jeffrey Toobin was suspended after reportedly getting caught masturbating during a work meeting. But phone sex operator and cam model Jessie Sage was unfazed. “I work during the day,” the Pittsburgher told The Post. “My clientele is people who are all working.” “Almost every day a client tells me they are jerking off while [in] a meeting,” she tweeted. Some have even developed a kink for doing it during what is now a banal staple of the work-from-home life — video meetings, sex workers told The Post.
