Zuckerberg: We should explore ideas like universal basic income 1 Hour Ago | 02:58 Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called on the need to consider universal basic income for Americans during his Harvard Commencement Speech.

For months, I'd had my eye out for a premium travel rewards card, one that had a great rate of return, a sweet signup bonus and a rare miles redemption. To ensure I'd be able to qualify, I did my due diligence and pulled my credit reports on AnnualCreditReport.com (you can also view two of your credit scores for free on Credit.com.) Nothing looked suspicious: After years of keeping a budget and dutifully paying my credit card bills on time, my hard work had paid off and my credit score was in the solid 800 range. "Insufficient number of credit cards on your credit report," read another.
In a story May 24 about Sean Hannity, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Seth Rich was a Democratic National Committee chairman.

A team of analysts from Morgan Stanley on Thursday published an updated list of the bank's "Shared Autonomous 30" — a group of companies that the team thinks will influence a big transition from a world in which vehicles are sold to a world in which more emphasis is placed in how much vehicles are driven. "The 100-year-old auto industry business model is facing unprecedented technological disruption, starting with the very definition of the market itself — moving from 'millions of units sold' annually to 'trillions of miles traveled' annually by the global car parc," the analysts wrote.

The Dearborn, Michigan, automaker named a new head of global product development Thursday, as well as new heads of its operations in North America, Europe and Asia.

While world attention has focused on Kim Jong Un's recent missile tests, a monthlong surge in gasoline prices in Pyongyang is showing no signs of letting up — a puzzling problem that if allowed to drag on could be very bad news for the North Korean economy. There's no obvious sign of less traffic on the streets, at least in Pyongyang, which is more affluent and developed than other North Korean cities. The North's by now pervasive market economy, which is tolerated by the ruling regime in exchange for its own cut of the profits, has made fuel and the ability to transport goods and people so essential that demand for gasoline is not so sensitive to price.

Deciding to take a break from work and use your vacation days, surprisingly enough, helps your career. Workers forgo vacation days for many reasons, including the backlog of work they'll face upon return or the fear of appearing uncommitted. In 2016, Americans forfeited 206 million vacation days.
The Congressional Budget Office analysis of the American Health Care Act that was released Wednesday afternoon reinforces what Republicans in Congress surely must be beginning to recognize: Engineering a piece of health care reform legislation that can satisfy the hard-core conservatives in the House and the more moderate members of the Senate is going to be difficult, verging on impossible. What many may not realize is that they could be walking into a trap that leads, ironically, to more federal management of health care, not less. The AHCA would slash more than $800 billion in Medicaid spending, increase out-of-pocket premium costs for poor Americans by a factor of 9, and after 10 years, leave 23 million more Americans without health insurance than there would be under current law -- many of them with preexisting conditions who would be priced out of the market for individual coverage.
