Federal officials in Washington are now offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information that leads to an arrest of the suspect or suspects who placed pipe bombs near the Democratic National Committee and Republican National Committee headquarters ahead of the January 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol.

The FBI and the ATF Washington also released a new wanted poster via social media on Friday. The poster says the devices were planted on January 5, the day before the deadly riot.

It shows previously-released images of the suspect wearing a face mask, a gray hoodie, and Nike Air Max Speed Turf shoes in black, gray, and yellow. The wanted poster also includes what appeared to be images of one of the pipe bombs, which the FBI has said were “viable” explosive devices.

Paul Mampilly is a Wall Street legend.
(Barron’s crowned his hedge fund as the “world’s best” and Kiplinger ranked it in the top 1%.)But a few years ago, he left Wall Street.

“I just grew tired of helping the rich get richer,” Paul explains. “So I started sharing my No. 1 investment picks with Main Street Americans.”

And his No. 1 stock picks have been phenomenal.

In 2016, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Tableau Software — shot up 199%.

In 2017, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Foundation Medicine — shot up 524%.

In 2018, Paul’s No. 1 pick — Roku — shot up 393%.

In 2019, Paul’s No. 1 pick — MTech Acquisitions — shot up 332%.

But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

By now, you’ve no doubt heard about retail investors and hedge funds going head to head over shares of heavily-shorted GameStop, in a trading mania that has cost the biggest players billions of dollars already.

By now, you probably understand the risk involved.

“Most investors think of risk being only on the downside,” one strategist said. “When you buy a stock outright, your losses are finite — if you buy at $100 and it goes to zero, you lost $100. But if you short it and it goes to $200, $200, $400 etcetera, your losses are compounded. The risk on the upside is unlimited.”

But if you’re still confused about what short selling is, or what a short squeeze is, or what any of this actually means when it comes to the GameStop frenzy, you are most definitely not alone.

This article breaks down the basics, step by step.

The world’s most vaccinated nation is struggling

With more than 30% of its population vaccinated, Israel leads the fight against Covid-19. Yet the emergence of more infectious variants is overwhelming its hospitals, showing the long road ahead for the rest of the world.

After inoculating 82% of Israelis aged 60 and more, going into a nearly month-long lockdown and shutting down the national airport this week, Israel is indicating the end of the tunnel may be further away.

As the European Union fights to get adequate supplies of vaccines and the U.S. pushes to get more shots into arms, the Israeli situation is evidence of the difficulty of fighting a virus whose ability to quickly mutate keeps it a step ahead of efforts to contain it.

So, where do we go from here?


Navigating today’s world is not an easy undertaking, especially when you happen to have a bad credit.  The vast majority of companies use your credit score to decide whether to do business with you. Some even use this information to set the pricing for products and services you use. That’s why you must strive to maintain a good credit score at all times.

If you already have a troubled credit history or one that could just use a little more work, use this guide to find out more about how to go about repairing it. It may take months or even a couple of years for your credit score to improve, but if you plan on buying a new home, or taking on any other big debt, it’s well worth it.


What if you could see even more tabs?

Days ago, Vivaldi released a new version of its browser with a cool new feature. You can now create two-level tab stacks so that grouped tabs can become pseudo-workspaces for whatever you get up to in your browser. Vivaldi first introduced the feature as an experiment in December 2020, but now you can officially indulge in two levels of too many tabs.

With the two-level tab stack, each grouping can function as a visually distinct workspace for however many browser-based projects you might have going at once. It could be a way to silo distracting tabs in your window while keeping your tabs neat and preventing you from losing a page when you really need it. Or, could just be another way to hoard even more tabs.

Vivaldi also lets you put tabs on the sides and the bottom of the browser window, and the new two-level tab feature works in those orientations, too. Check out the new feature and how to get it for yourself.
