“Basically, it’s a place where folks can gather to celebrate the life of somebody with a terminal illness,” Lily Sage Weinrieb, Sparrow’s funeral director, said. “We in the United States still don’t really talk about death and dying,” Sage Weinrieb said. “We don’t call them that because they might not feel like funerals, at all,” Sage Weinrieb said. Still, the very fact exit parties could potentially become “a thing” is yet another example of the shift in the way Americans mourn and bury their dead, she said. “A lot of people don’t know that there are other options beyond the traditional funerals,” Sage Weinrieb said.

Some insurance companies cited “act of war” exclusions to try to avoid covering the damage of a Russian cyberattack against Ukraine in 2017 that rippled outward internationally, causing billions of dollars in damage. Now, as U.S. officials warn of similar hacks, insurers might not be able to invoke that protection. In November, Lloyd’s Market Association, a trade group, published four first-of-their kind recommendations for how insurers can articulate act-of-war exclusions that cover hacks. Some cyber-specific insurers hope their in-house security expertise can help businesses avoid disruptive hacks and subsequent claims. Policies offered by Mr. Motta’s firm exclude acts of war, as designated by a government, but cover cyber terrorism.

WASHINGTON — House Democrats added seven names Thursday to their list of vulnerable incumbents in need of party resources heading into the challenging midterm elections. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, or DCCC, the campaign arm of House Democrats, increased the number of lawmakers it sees as prime GOP targets in November to 32. Almost twice as many Democrats as Republicans have said they are not seeking re-election this year. So far, 29 House Democrats have announced they that will not seek re-election in the fall. The list of vulnerable Democrats is being updated as Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer prepares to retire.

Former President Donald Trump has dropped the biggest hint yet that he will be running in 2024. Trump was filmed at a golf game, where a golfing buddy introduces him as the "45th President of the United States." In response, Trump is seen turning around, grinning, and saying: "45th and 47th." However, the former president did say in November that he will "probably" wait until the 2022 midterm elections are over before confirming a 2024 run. Despite a deluge of Trumpworld-related legal troubles, Trump remains immensely popular with his base, leading fellow 2024 contender Florida Gov.

A restaurant chain's owner says she was flooded with hate mail over a location that went viral. The owner said the location's general manager had set a Google-review quota for workers. "We immediately terminated not only the general manager but the assistant general manager because she did have a part in it," Bonfiglio told Insider on Tuesday. "We would never stand for a general manager taking it upon himself to do this," she continued, adding: "It was just absurd." "We oversee 1,100 people, and while 99% of them are amazing we did have a bad egg, unfortunately," she said, referring to the general manager.

A San Francisco biotech is trying to cure HIV with the gene-editing tool CRISPR. Excision BioTherapeutics launched the first-ever CRISPR study for HIV patients on Thursday. Excision BioTherapeutics just launched the first clinical trial to see if a one-time IV infusion can effectively cure HIV. In the fall of 2021, the Food and Drug Administration OK'd Excision's plans to begin human testing, setting the stage to now start dosing HIV patients. The NIH also awarded a small research grant last August to support Excision's cofounder and Temple University researcher Kamel Khalili's work on an HIV cure.

Goldman Sachs president John Waldron criticized the Fed's credibility to rein in inflation, Bloomberg reported. Waldron questioned its ability to act as an "independent, monetary policy engine." Goldman Sachs president John Waldron criticized the Federal Reserve's credibility to rein in surging inflation as the central bank on Wednesday offered its clearest signal yet of raising interest rates by March, Bloomberg reported. The central bank's policy statement opened the door for the Fed to start raising the benchmark rate as early as March. "We might need to bring back Paul Volcker," Waldron said.

A group of Senate Democrats want Biden to keep the expanded child tax credit in Build Back Better. The senators warned of a spike in child poverty if the program isn't renewed in the near future. Biden conceded last week that he may fail at securing a renewal of the child tax credit program. The child tax credit was expanded for only a year under the stimulus law and it expired at the end of 2021. Research from the Center on Poverty and Social Policy indicates that child poverty has dropped by 30% as a result of the expanded child tax credit.

Capital goods exports also rose, but food exports tumbled.

The bank found European stocks outperformed U.S. peers by four percentage points on average over six months following the first Fed rate increase. Longer-duration stocks, in a nutshell, are those whose prices are driven by expectations of future earnings potential and therefore fare well when interest rates are low. For years, those stocks were an investment magnet, benefiting from rock-bottom interest rates and recently the pandemic-time shift to working, shopping and dining from home. Now Kelly says, markets are at an inflection point, away from when "PE went higher and interest rates went lower". "The cyclicality of the European markets, the Japanese markets... we think are going to be the big beneficiaries of this near-term globalized upturn."

Among those 12 states is Nebraska, which also had the lowest rate in December among the states and DC. This map shows what unemployment rates looked like across the US as of the end of last year. The Bureau of Labor Statistics wrote in its latest State Employment and Unemployment Summary release that unemployment rates in 12 states reached record lows since this data was first tracked in 1976. "This is uncharted territory in terms of such a low unemployment rate and gauging how much lower it can conceivably go." "December 2021 marks the fifth straight month that Nebraska has had a historically low unemployment rate."

Sanders indicated on Wednesday that a big tax handout to the rich was getting dropped. At least three House Democrats are threatening to oppose Build Back Better if SALT is scrapped. Taxpayers used to have unlimited SALT deductions before the new limit was introduced in the 2017 Trump tax law. The Vermont progressive indicated the tax break was getting dropped following a report published in The Hill on Wednesday morning. "I'm glad to hear that the SALT provisions are no longer in play for Build Back Better," Sanders wrote on Twitter.

85 Democratic lawmakers urged Biden to release a memo on his legal ability to cancel student debt. The White House has remained largely silent on the memo, along with Biden's campaign promise to forgive student debt broadly. The White House has yet to acknowledge those documents and has stayed relatively quiet about Biden's campaign promise to approve $10,000 in student debt forgiveness for every federal borrower. And in December, Psaki reiterated her Wednesday comments on the matter, telling reporters that if Congress sends Biden a bill to cancel student debt broadly, he would be "happy to sign it." But Democratic lawmakers are growing restless and want answers from the White House.

mRNA vaccines safe during in vitro fertilizationCOVID-19 vaccines using mRNA technology do not affect fertility outcomes during in-vitro fertilization (IVF), researchers have found. Healthy gut bacteria may protect during COVIDThe bacteria living in your small intestine may contribute to the risk for long COVID after infection with SARS-CoV-2, new findings suggest. Researchers analyzed the "gut microbiome" in 116 COVID-19 patients in Hong Kong in 2020, when regulations required that every infected person be hospitalized. "Patients who didn't develop long COVID had a gut microbiome similar to that of people without COVID-19." In young men ages 18 to 24, the rate per million doses was roughly 52 with the Pfizer shots and 56 after Moderna shots.

The bad news, he allowed, is that most Republicans are willing to disown it only in private. “This is a moment for us to come together and pass a strong, bipartisan sanctions package to send an unmistakable signal of support for Ukraine, Ukraine’s independence and for President Biden’s leadership,” he said on Wednesday. After Mr. Biden’s gaffe last week, when he seemed to suggest that a “minor incursion” into Ukraine would not merit a forceful allied response, Representative Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the No. 2 Republican, asked: “Do you think the strong, wonderful people of the Ukraine think it would be a minor incursion if Putin moved tanks into Ukraine, even a piece of the Ukraine? Of course they don’t.”This week, speaking to reporters in Kentucky, the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, indicated such criticism had pushed the administration to toughen its stance.

A toddler spent almost $2,000 on furniture when he was playing on his mom's phone, per CNN. The mom told CNN she put some chairs in her Walmart shopping cart but hadn't bought them yet. When her 22-month-old son, Ayaansh, was playing on her phone, he ordered the whole lot totalling $1,786.99, Madhu told CNN. The parents had no idea about the purchases until boxes containing furniture started arriving at their front door, they told CNN. Ayaansh's parents told CNN that they have taken their debit card off their Walmart account so their son can't accidentally spend any more money.

However, if you don't have a bank account or aren't nearby your bank due to travel, your situation becomes a bit trickier. Banks aren't required to cash checks from people who aren't customers. That being said, many brick-and-mortar banks will still cash your check even if you don't bank with them. If you're cashing a payroll or government check, you'll pay 1.5% of the check amount. If you cash any other check, you'll have to pay 4% of the value of your check amount.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Transportation Department (USDOT) announced on Monday it is issuing a new rule to make it easier for regulators to move faster to protect airline customers from unfair and deceptive practices. REUTERS/Carlos Barria/File PhotoThe new regulation, which was reported earlier by Reuters, will simplify and speed hearing procedures the department uses when issuing protection rules to prohibit unfair or deceptive practices by airlines and ticket agents. The USDOT plans future rules on airline ticket refunds and transparency of airline baggage and other fees. It will also soon issue guidance on the definitions of “unfair” and “deceptive” for purposes of airline customer protection, the department said in a statement. “This rule improves the Department’s ability to issue timely rules that protect airline consumers from unfair and deceptive practices, a responsibility the Department takes seriously,” said Transportation Deputy Secretary Polly Trottenberg.

REUTERS/Jeff ZelevanskyJan 24 (Reuters) - Merck & Co (MRK.N) said on Monday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration declined to approve its experimental drug for the treatment of chronic cough and sought additional information on the treatment's effectiveness. Merck said it would meet with the agency to discuss the next steps on the oral drug, gefapixant. Register now for FREE unlimited access to RegisterIf approved later, gefapixant would become the first such remedy for patients who have a persisting cough after the treatment of underlying health conditions such as asthma or if they have an unexplained chronic cough, Merck said. Last week, Japan's health regulator approved gefapixant tablets for adults with refractory or unexplained chronic cough, to be marketed under the brand name Lyfnua.

REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/File PhotoJan 24 (Reuters) - Meme stocks GameStop Corp (GME.N) and AMC Entertainment (AMC.N) continued to fall out of favor for investors as fears of a faster rise in interest rates puncture the prospects of speculative trading. After surging 600% last year amid a retail trading frenzy, GameStop fell 11% on Monday, extending a 28% slide from the start of 2022. "For longer than we anticipated, meme stocks stayed up to a level which was ridiculous," said Joe Saluzzi, co-manager of trading at Themis Trading in New Jersey. Last week, Vanda Research, that tracks retail investor flows, said overall social media chatter on meme stocks has dropped substantially from early 2021, with some bit of speculative retail investor intrest around GameStop and AMC. The two stocks were among the top 10 most-traded shares among Fidelity customers on Friday with buy far outnumbering sell orders.

The FDA action will involve revising the emergency use authorizations for the monoclonal antibodies, the report said, citing two senior administration health officials. However, the agency will not revoke the emergency use authorizations in case the drugs work against a future COVID-19 variant, according to the report. GSK and Vir Biotech are boosting production of their drug to help meet soaring demand in the United States.
