    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

  • The Fed guessing game

    5 Sep 2015 | 3:00 am
    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times. Since December 2008, the central bank has held short-term interest rates near 0 percent, an unprecedented stretch meant to pull the U.S. economy from the depths of the Great Recession. But the end of this cheap-money era appears to be near. With the economy steadily improving, the Fed plans to raise its benchmark interest rate by 0.25 percent, perhaps as soon as its mid-September meeting. It's "a…

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan.

Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience."

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times. Since December 2008, the central bank has held short-term interest rates near 0 percent, an unprecedented stretch meant to pull the U.S. economy from the depths of the Great Recession.

  • Jailed clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal contempt of court ruling

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan.

  • Jailed clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal contempt of court ruling

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan.

  • Jailed clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal contempt of court ruling

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times. Since December 2008, the central bank has held short-term interest rates near 0 percent, an unprecedented stretch meant to pull the U.S. economy from the depths of the Great Recession. But the end of this cheap-money era appears to be near.

Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan.

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times. Since December 2008, the central bank has held short-term interest rates near 0 percent, an unprecedented stretch meant to pull the U.S. economy from the depths of the Great Recession. But the end of this cheap-money era appears to be near. With the economy steadily improving, the Fed plans to raise its benchmark interest rate by 0.25 percent, perhaps as soon as its mid-September meeting. It's "a…

Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan.

Since December 2008, the central bank has held short-term interest rates near 0 percent, an unprecedented stretch meant to pull the U.S. economy from the depths of the Great Recession. But the end of this cheap-money era appears to be near. With the economy steadily improving, the Fed plans to raise its benchmark interest rate by 0.25 percent, perhaps as soon as its mid-September meeting. It's "a…

    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times.

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times. Since December 2008, the central bank has held short-term interest rates near 0 percent, an unprecedented stretch meant to pull the U.S. economy from the depths of the Great Recession.

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.

  • The week's best financial advice

    5 Sep 2015 | 3:30 am
    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times.

  • Jailed clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal contempt of court ruling

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.
  • Only in America: University professors threaten to give bad grades to students who use 'offensive' language, like 'male' and 'female'

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:37 pm

  • The week's best financial advice

    5 Sep 2015 | 3:30 am
    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times.

  • Jailed clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal contempt of court ruling

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.
  • Only in America: University professors threaten to give bad grades to students who use 'offensive' language, like 'male' and 'female'

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:37 pm

  • The week's best financial advice

    5 Sep 2015 | 3:30 am
    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times.

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.
  • Only in America: University professors threaten to give bad grades to students who use 'offensive' language, like 'male' and 'female'

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:37 pm

  • The week's best financial advice

    5 Sep 2015 | 3:30 am
    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times.

  • Jailed clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal contempt of court ruling

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.
  • Only in America: University professors threaten to give bad grades to students who use 'offensive' language, like 'male' and 'female'

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:37 pm

  • The week's best financial advice

    5 Sep 2015 | 3:30 am
    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times.

  • Jailed clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal contempt of court ruling

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.
  • Only in America: University professors threaten to give bad grades to students who use 'offensive' language, like 'male' and 'female'

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:37 pm

  • The week's best financial advice

    5 Sep 2015 | 3:30 am
    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

    The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: All eyes are now on Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen, said Binyamin Appelbaum at The New York Times.

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis will reportedly appeal her contempt of court ruling and has no plans to resign as Rowan County clerk, her lawyer said Friday. Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.
  • Only in America: University professors threaten to give bad grades to students who use 'offensive' language, like 'male' and 'female'

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:37 pm

  • The week's best financial advice

    5 Sep 2015 | 3:30 am
    Here are three of the week's top pieces of financial advice, gathered from around the web: Facebook's lending plansWho your Facebook friends are could soon determine your creditworthiness, said Susie Cagle at Pacific Standard. Facebook recently filed a patent for a tool that would enable lenders to use the credit ratings of your Facebook friends as a factor when deciding whether or not to make a loan. That means "you could be denied a loan simply because your friends have defaulted on theirs." The tool tracks how users are networked together, based on evidence that "shows we're more likely to…

Davis, who was sent to jail Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court for defying the Supreme Court's order to issue same-sex marriage licenses, says she has a "clean conscience." Though a deputy clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in Davis' absence Friday, her attorney asserted that the licenses are void because she didn't authorize them.
  • Only in America: University professors threaten to give bad grades to students who use 'offensive' language, like 'male' and 'female'

    4 Sep 2015 | 1:37 pm
