    Colorado Was the First State to Legalize Marijuana. Now Its Governor Won't Rule Out Recriminalizing It

    As cannabis enthusiasts celebrate 4/20, the unofficial stoner holiday, the state that has led the nation in legalization says it may not always be so open to the drug. Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper tells CNN he is not ruling out making marijuana illegal again, as the state’s crime rate has been rising since recreational use of the drug was made legal in 2014. As of yet, there’s no research that ties the increased crime rate to the Colorado’s recreational pot law.

    There are three – and only three – ways a company’s stock can pay us: A cash dividend. For example, if a stock pays a 3% current yield and then hikes its payout by 10%, it’s unlikely that its stock price will stagnate for long. For example let’s look at Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), it pays a generous dividend – but doesn’t raise it meaningfully.

    President Trump to Skip Barbara Bush's Funeral for Mar a Lago, 'Out of Respect for the Bush Family' Says White House

    President Donald Trump won’t be joining his wife in attending the memorial service of former first lady Barbara Bush, matriarch of a political dynasty that Trump often clashed with during his 2016 campaign. The White House said Thursday that Trump would not attend “to avoid disruptions due to added security, and out of respect for the Bush Family and friends attending the service.” Trump is expected to be at his Florida estate this weekend during Saturday’s funeral in Houston for the wife and mother of presidents. Flags have flown at half-staff over the White House and at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida since Bush’s death at the age of 92, and Trump added his voice to the tributes that have poured in for the wife of President George H.W. Bush and mother of President George W. Bush.

    Kushner Cos. subpoenaed by feds after AP report

    The Kushner Cos. has been subpoenaed by federal prosecutors for information related to an Associated Press report that the company filed dozens of false documents about its buildings in New York City. The statement Thursday acknowledged that the federal subpoena arrived last month, a day after the AP reported the Kushner Cos. routinely filed false paperwork with the city stating it had zero rent-regulated tenants in buildings across the city when, in fact, it had hundreds. The AP report covered a three-year period when the real estate company was run by Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law who is now a senior adviser.

    Southwest Airlines pilot pushed Navy boundaries for flying

    Tammie Jo Shults was determined to "break into the club" of male military aviators. One of the first female fighter pilots in the U.S. Navy, Shults flew training missions as an enemy pilot during Operation Desert Storm, while working with other women to see a rule excluding them from combat flights repealed. Twenty-five years later, Shults was at the controls of the Dallas-bound Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 Tuesday when it made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after one of the engines on the Boeing 737 exploded while the plane was traveling 500 mph (800 kph) at 30,000 feet (9144 m) with 149 people on board.

    AT&T Corp. was sued by a tech firm that accuses the largest U.S. provider of pay TV of stealing the startup’s technology for providing online streaming news and interfering with its launch. Dallas-based AT&T reneged on an agreement to invest $100 million in My24hournews.com, which invented a system to deliver streaming news to computers, smartphones and tablets, after making off with its technology, the tech firm said in a lawsuit. AT&T violated agreements with My24hournews.com by “refusing to fund My24’s launch’’ and “holding My24’s Broadcast Platform hostage,’’ according to the complaint filed in federal court in Atlanta this week.

    Will You Wind Up Returning to Work After Retiring? Chances Are, Yes

    Countless people look forward to retirement for one key reason: not having to endure the grind of maintaining a full-time career. In a recent survey, among the 17% of adults who returned to work over the past three years after being out of the workforce for at least 12 months, 13% were retirees who resumed their careers because they needed the additional income. The average household nearing retirement has a median savings of just $17,000, according to data from the Economic Policy Institute, and in a more recent study by GOBankingRates, one-third of adults 55 and over were said to have less than $10,000 in a nest egg.

    Philip Morris International Inc.: An Industry Goes Up in Smoke

    Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE:PM) shares fell off a cliff on April 19 after the company reported disappointing earnings. The fall was bigger than the disappointment, but it seemed to portend trouble for tobacco generally and took the whole consumer staples sector of the market down with it. The company — which sells exclusively outside the U.S. and spun-out from Altria Group Inc (NYSE:MO) in 2008 — had net income of $1.65 billion, $1.00 per share, on revenue of $6.9 billion.
