ICE is aware elderly Americans are targets for scams that have them unknowingly transport drugs. Americans have been imprisoned abroad after being caught transporting drugs. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement is aware older Americans are targets for scams that fool them into smuggling drugs into other countries, but often fail to protect them, The New York Times reported. The program, however, has been criticized for not doing enough to keep Americans — especially older Americans —who unknowingly end up transporting these drugs out of foreign prisons. John Eisert, the assistant director of investigative programs for Homeland Security Investigations, told The Times that older Americans aren't ICE's target, but that it can sometimes be difficult to make elderly travelers aware of possible scams.

U.S. Shoppers Continued Stimulus-Fueled Spending in April
  + stars: | 2021-05-14 | by ( Amara Omeokwe | ) + 0.99   time to read: +1 min
Shoppers extended stimulus-induced spending in April, maintaining a level of retail sales from the prior month with increased expenditures on autos and dining out. Retail sales—a measure of purchases at stores, at restaurants and online—overall were unchanged last month from March, the Commerce Department reported Friday. That kept spending at the same pace set by March’s upwardly revised 10.7% advance, which was influenced by government-stimulus money for most households. The level of sales is much higher than before the pandemic,” said Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James Financial. The leisure and hospitality sector, including restaurants, added 331,000 jobs in April, accounting for much of the country’s job creation last month.

Sen. Warren reflects on her unsuccessful 2020 presidential bid in her upcoming book, "Persist." "Maybe I just wasn't good enough to reassure the voters," she wrote. When Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts entered the 2020 presidential race, she didn't really need a national introduction. After Warren was elected to the Senate from Massachusetts in 2012, defeating then-GOP Sen. Scott Brown, the presidential buzz immediately followed. In Warren's upcoming book, "Persist," set to be released on May 4, she reflects — quite candidly — on why her campaign failed to launch her into a one-on-one battle with former President Donald Trump for the White House.

BENGALURU (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden’s proposed fiscal package will boost the coronavirus-hit economy significantly, according to a majority of economists in a Reuters poll, and they expect it to return to its pre-COVID-19 size within a year. Hopes for an upswing in U.S. economic growth, helped by the huge stimulus plan, was reflected in the Jan. 19-22 Reuters poll of more 100 economists. In response to an additional question, over 90%, or 42 of 46 economists, said the planned fiscal stimulus would boost the economy significantly. On an annual basis, the economy - after likely contracting 3.5% last year - was expected to grow 4.0% this year and 3.3% in 2022, an upgrade from last month. “Even without the stimulus package, we had already thought the economy would get back to pre-COVID levels by the middle of this year,” said Jacob Oubina, senior U.S. economist at RBC Capital Markets.

The Sperm Kings Have a Problem: Too Much Demand
  + stars: | 2021-01-08 | by ( Nellie Bowles | ) sentiment -0.85   time to read: +2 min
About 20 percent of sperm bank clients are heterosexual couples, 60 percent are gay women, and 20 percent are single moms by choice, the banks said. To meet this demand, men provided sperm at a steady rate for years, some banks said. Several banks said that they had a lot of old frozen sperm in storage, but that it could last only so long. “Donor recruiting is a growing challenge,” said Scott Brown, vice president of strategic alliances for California Cryobank. A sales representative at another sperm bank said that he was hoping management might offer cash bonuses to attract donors, but that his bosses were worried about setting a precedent.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - As Democratic nominee Joe Biden edges closer to claiming the presidency, investors are focused on the still-undecided race for control of the Senate and the potential consequences for taxes, regulation and the outlook for more stimulus. Biden’s move ahead in Georgia focused some investor attention on chances that the Democrats could have more sway in the Senate. Two other Senate races remain undecided, though Republican Senators Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Dan Sullivan of Alaska are leading in those contests. Some investors are starting to wade back into stocks that would benefit from a Democratic sweep of Washington. “But if Biden gets in and the Senate flips, then we are back to the sweep.”
