Advertisement Supported by Americans are still scarred by the financial crisis, and the fruits of this decade’s record-breaking rally fell mostly to the rich. ByMatt Phillips March 9, 2019 The financial system had nearly collapsed. The deepest recession in decades was devouring over 700,000 jobs a month. Roughly $13 trillion in stock market wealth, slowly rebuilt since the dot-com bust, had again been incinerated. It was March 2009. And it was one of the best times in a generation to buy stocks. A decade later, the bull market that began back then ranks among the great rallies in stock-market history. The 305 percent surge in the S&P 500 is the index’s second-best run ever. The rise has generated more than $30 … [Read more...] about The Bull Market Began 10 Years Ago. Why Aren’t More People Celebrating?
Episode 13 2 year reserve
Elena Popina, Sarah Ponczek and Vildana Hajric Bloomberg News Published 5:36 PM EST Dec 21, 2018 If you asked investors a few months ago what they’d remember about this year’s market, it would’ve been the storm of volatility that laid everything low in February. That episode is starting to seem quaint. While it’s true nothing out of the ordinary is happening to stocks by historical standards, try telling that to traders, who instead of relaxing for the holidays just lived through one of the most trying stretches since the bull market began. Losses have been unrelenting. In a year of big reversals, equities just notched their worst week since 2011, with the S&P 500 falling 7.1 percent and the Nasdaq Composite descending into a bear market. Equally troubling was the sheer volume descending on exchanges during a typically sleepy stretch.

Well-deserved retirement Last week, just two months shy of her Uptown landmark’s 30th anniversary, Lucia Watson sold her Lucia’s Restaurant to a group of local investors, who pledged to keep the place — right down to the name — as is. It’s tough to single out another industry practitioner who has enjoyed Watson’s enduring influence in the hospitality arts; she was a farm-to-table leader decades before the movement got that name, and her restaurant, wine bar and cafe/bakery spawned a new generation of chefs and restaurateurs. Lucia’s aficionados should not despair; chef Ryan Lund and general manager Heather Asbury, both eight-year Lucia’s vets, remain at the helm. The year of the pop-up Temporary restaurants were hotter than Taylor Swift’s iTunes sales. Former Sea Change chef Erik Anderson returned to Minneapolis after a critically acclaimed run at Catbird Seat in Nashville, and proceeded to stage one-night-only dinners in his … [Read more...] about Rick Nelson dishes on the year in Twin Cities restaurants

One was blamed for a car crash in May that killed a mother and her two children on a swampy stretch of Interstate 95 near Holly Hill.But before Cline's death Monday, only one other person in the state's history was known to have died in an alligator attack. In July 2016, a 90-year-old woman with dementia wandered away from a West Ashley … [Read more...] about After SC’s 2nd fatal alligator attack in 2 years, incidents remain rare, authorities stress
