Lisa Banes, who appeared in movies like Gone Girl and A Cure for Wellness has died of complications from a traumatic brain injury. She was 65 years old. 

She had been crossing the street when she was hit by a person on a scooter who had just run a red light. 

“The driver did not stop but continued,” her manager said. “Luckily, she was relatively close to the hospital and she was able to be transported there.”

Banes was taken to Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital after the incident, which happened on June 4. She passed away on Monday.

“We are heartsick over Lisa’s tragic and senseless passing,” her manager said. “She was a woman of great spirit, kindness and generosity and dedicated to her work, whether on stage or in front of a camera and even more so to her wife, family and friends. We were blessed to have had her in our lives.”

What we can expect from the Federal Reserve meeting commencement today

The Federal Reserve will end its two-day meeting this week. While they are not expected to take any policy actions during this meeting, they should be releasing some new economic forecasts as well as providing insight into potentially tapering its bond-buying program. 

There’s a chance it could pencil in an initial rate hike in 2023. In its previous forecast, there was no consensus for a rate hike among Fed officials though 2023.

 “I think the commentary and the press conference will be interesting. There’s clearly a division on the board and among the Fed presidents about how strong the economy is, and whether it’s time to start evolving the policy,” said Rick Rieder, chief investment officer global fixed income at BlackRock. 

Here’s the rundown of what we can expect.
