Trump Slams Interest Rate Hikes, Ignoring Hands-Off Tradition Toward Fed
07/19/2018 1:59pm

Updated at 3:06 p.m. ET The Federal Reserve got a rare piece of advice from the president Thursday. The central bank is an independent agency and usually the commander in chief doesn't comment directly on Fed policy. But President Trump broke with that tradition, saying in a CNBC interview , "I'm not thrilled" about the Fed's interest-rate hikes. "Because we go up and every time you go up they want to raise rates again. I don't really — I am not happy about it. But at the same time I'm letting them do what they feel is best." Trump also said Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, whom he nominated, is "a very good man." In a later statement to CNBC, the White House said Trump "respects the independence of the Fed" and "he is not interfering with Fed policy decisions. The President's views on interest rates are well known and his comments today are a reiteration of those long held positions, and public comments." The central bank has raised short-term interest rates twice this year. It has

Nostalgia (And Norovirus) Make For A Novel 'Last Cruise'
07/19/2018 1:48pm

It's a rusty old bucket of a plot contrivance: throw a bunch of strangers together on a boat and roil the waters with a big storm or a white whale. But, in her latest novel, The Last Cruise, Kate Christensen demonstrates there's life yet to be found in what may appear to be the creakiest of fictional premises. This is an entertaining and elegantly written story about social class, self-delusion and the fragility of second chances. Its title makes it sound like a thriller or the series finale of The Love Boat , but The Last Cruise is no mere lightweight literary vessel. The Queen Isabella is a 1950s vintage ocean liner that's making one final voyage — a two-week jaunt from Los Angeles to Hawaii — before lowering anchor at the scrapyard. The company that owns the ship, Cabaret Cruise Lines, has decided to cash in big by offering a luxury cruise that evokes the spirit of 1957, when the ship was launched. No Internet and no kids are allowed on board; instead, there are lounge singers

More Than 140 'Sister Survivors' Of Larry Nassar Abuse Are Honored At ESPYS
07/19/2018 1:32pm

Their words helped ensure Larry Nassar will spend his life behind bars, and on Wednesday, the "sister survivors" of the disgraced sports doctor's abuse accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2018 ESPYS in Los Angeles. Dressed in glittering gowns and with hands gripped, more than 140 women gathered onstage to share the prize awarded to athletes whose bravery "transcends sports," as the audience rose in a standing ovation. Sarah Klein, a former gymnast who said she was among Nassar's earliest victims three decades ago, was the first to address the audience. "Speaking up and speaking out is not easy," she said. "Telling our stories of abuse, over and over and over again, in graphic detail, is not easy. We're sacrificing privacy, we're being judged and scrutinized, and it's grueling and it's painful, but it is time." Now a mother, Klein added, "we must start caring about children's safety more than we care about adults' reputations, Tiffany Thomas Lopez, who in the 1990s played

Migrating Arctic Geese Are Confused, Exhausted By Rising Temperatures
07/19/2018 12:59pm

Each spring, barnacle geese migrate more than 1,800 miles from the Netherlands and northern Germany to their breeding grounds in parts of Russia above the Arctic Circle. The journey north usually takes about a month, and the geese make multiple stops along the way to eat and fatten up before they lay their eggs, says Bart Nolet of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology and the University of Amsterdam. But that pattern of migration is changing, as rapidly rising temperatures have led to earlier springs in the Arctic. So Nolet's team tracked dozens of barnacle geese to figure out how they are being impacted by the earlier snowmelts. Their results were published in a new study in Current Biology . One big thing hasn't changed: what time of year the geese start heading north. And that's a problem. "They actually depart from the wintering areas around the same date regardless of whether it's early or late spring in the Arctic," Nolet says. That's probably because the geese "cannot predict
