    The Tragedy of Goodyear’s Allegedly Defective G159 Tire Keeps Getting Worse

    In July 1999, Jim Wright and his wife Joyce were traveling along a New Mexico roadway in their 1995 Fleetwood American Eagle RV when, suddenly, the vehicle’s left-front tire failed. The tire was a Goodyear G159, a tire now linked to numerous fatal crashes but has never been recalled and has never faced a serious federal investigation until recently.

    Jesus Announces Plans To Return Once The Dow Clears 27,000

    THE HEAVENS—Urging Christians nationwide to “Buy! Buy! Buy!” on Thursday, Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, announced that He will come again to judge the living and the dead once the Dow clears 27,000. “Listen, my children, and I will tell you—when the NYSE closing bell rings out and the Dow Jones Industrial Average soars above 27,000 points, I will return to strike down the wicked and reign over the righteous forevermore,” said Our Lord and Savior, adding that only...

    $1.6 trillion in risky ‘leveraged loans’ are overhanging the global economy

    An art installation titled “Hang On a Minute Lads, I’ve Got a Great Idea” by British artist Richard Wilson — at The Peninsula hotel in Hong Kong, in 2015 — is based on a scene from the movie “The Italian Job”. It is only October and already the UK economy has set a dubious new record for the year: Leveraged loans to British companies have hit about £40 billion ($52 billion), according to the Bank of England.

    Are Other People’s Credit-Card Rewards Costing You Money?

    Amazon and Target have a surprising argument to make: The proliferation of rewards-rich credit cards is bad for consumers. They are suing for the right to pick and choose which Visa and Mastercards they accept. They want to be able to reject the richest rewards cards – cards like Chase Sapphire Reserve, which offer generous cash back, points, and other perks, and which come with the highest transaction fees charged to merchants. They say, if they obtain this right, they’ll be able to charge ...

    Are There Really Four Personality Types?

    We love to categorize ourselves and others into personality types. Maybe you’re a “Type A.” Or maybe the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator, versions of which many have taken on Facebook, labels you a “Protector” (ISFJ). But how distinct are these types? Is everyone clearly Type A or Type B, with no one in between? Or do people fall on a spectrum? If there’s a spectrum, are there two clumps with a few people between, or one clump in the middle with a few people at the extremes?
