The lockdown at the Capitol complex was lifted just after 3 p.m. yesterday afternoon, following an attack on police officers. A suspect reportedly rammed a vehicle into a barricade, and then lunged from the car with a knife. The suspect, a 25-year-old named Noah Green, and one of the police officers, died following the attack. The other officer sustained injuries but survived. 

A spokesperson has said that the incident “does not appear to be terrorism-related,” but admitted that more investigation would be necessary. 

Flags were ordered to be flown at half-staff to honor the Capitol Police officer who died.

This is just bizarre…

It’s expected to see massive revenue in 2020 – $100 billion.

It pays an enormous dividend.

Blowout jobs report could power stocks higher in the week ahead

Major stock indices were sharply higher as the calendar rolled into April.

Stocks finished out the holiday shortened pre-Easter week with gains and strategists expect April to be a strong month for the market. 

The U.S. Labor Department’s surprisingly strong March jobs report this Friday showed that there were 916,000 jobs added in March, compared to the 675,000 expected by economists.

Economists expect a very strong second quarter as the economy reopens and stimulus spending kicks in, and that should be positive for stocks — unless interest rates rise too quickly.

What can we expect as earnings season starts to roll in?

More than 50 people were killed and dozens more were injured when an express passenger train in Taiwan derailed inside of a tunnel. 

The Taroko Express was carrying nearly 500 passengers and was entering a mountain tunnel in eastern Taiwan when the crash occurred. The train derailed when a construction truck that was working alongside the mountainous stretch of track slid into the train’s path. Early reports indicate the parking brake for the truck was not properly secured and is the reason the truck ended up on the train tracks. 

The accident is being called the worst train disaster in Taiwan’s history. Photos from the scene show damaged train cars scattered about the area as other train traffic has been snarled by the accident. Taiwan officials expect it could take this long before train travel in the area returns to normal.

While many people were forced to suffer through the insane demand of toilet paper that led to a shortage, some were forced to suffer even if they found toilet paper — how would they afford it?

With layoffs, pay cuts, and a crippled economy due to the pandemic, everyday conveniences suddenly started to add up to a major financial inconvenience for some Americans. 

People were taking out loans, using their credit cards, paying only the minimum due (or even skipping payments), and other measures that were needed, but unfortunately also affected their credit scores. 

What many people don’t realize is how drastically a hard inquiry like this can affect their scores. Credit checks like these can lower your score by a whopping 25 points on its own!

For those that suffered from credit score decline, that lower number can affect the future, including homeowner or rental insurance availability and rates, access to car loans, and even nabbing new jobs, things we may need to bounce back.

If you find yourself in the position where you want your post-pandemic credit score to go up, here are seven suggestions for improving your situation.
