( CBS DFW ) — A fourth stimulus check has been suggested, even as the third round of economic relief is still reaching eligible Americans. Around 159 million payments of up to $1,400 per person have been issued over the last few weeks. That’s most of the $422 billion allotted in President Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act. Paper checks and EIP cards continue to arrive by mail. These relief payments are part of a larger effort to cushion COVID’s economic impact on households and support the economy while the pandemic recovery continues. The stimulus package also extends unemployment benefits, strengthens the child tax credit, and much more. The recent round of checks follows the $1,200 CARES Act payments at the pandemic’s outset and the $600 payments in early January.

By Jeff Johnston, American Hunter Sometimes a better mousetrap actually comes along. It just takes some time to prove itself. Take carbon-fiber rifle stocks. From a pure performance standpoint they’re superior to wood , though my grandpa wouldn’t publicly admit it. Carbon fiber is five times stronger than steel, twice as stiff, impervious to environmental conditions and much lighter. It’s the same reason this material—essentially crystalline carbon filaments woven into a flexible sheet—is used in the aerospace industry. In the archery world, carbon-fiber arrows were received skeptically, but after manufacturing techniques were perfected to ensure straightness and prevent splintering, it was hard to give away an aluminum arrow. Hoyt Archery of Salt Lake City debuted its first bow with an all-carbon-fiber riser in 2010, but according to president Randy Walk, Hoyt began the project 18 years prior. That means today’s carbon bow was not just a few years in the making, but 26. … [Read more...] about Bow Test: Hoyt REDWRX Carbon RX-1
