What's a yield curve, and why is it so important?
Well, the curve itself measures Treasury interest rates, by maturity, from 91-day T-bills all the way out to 30-year bonds. It's the difference between the long rates and the short rates that tells a key story about the future of the economy.

Most of us are surveying the damages right now. All the packages are unwrapped and scattered under the tree; the credit cards are maxed out; we're exhausted.

Throwing a cocktail party on New Year's Eve is a time-honored tradition for bidding adieu to the auld and ringing in the new. But, as the last hurrah of a jam-packed holiday season, such a party needs to be as easy to pull off for the host as it is festive for the guests.

“Gift cards are becoming more and more popular and are regulated by state law, but consumers are often unaware of unreasonable expiration dates and hidden fees,” said Wagner (D-Bergen). “Consumers should make sure they know all the rules so they get the most of out of their gift cards and avoid being hit with fees they never saw coming.”

2009 Closing of 2 Long Island Shelters, the Bad Economy, & Rising Medical Costs Force Little Shelter to Cut Back on Crucial Medical & Community Services
Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center www.littleshelter.com, one of Long Island’s oldest no-kill shelters dedicated to saving all companion animals in need, announced today that its Holiday Donation Drive has been extended until January 7, 2010. Little Shelter is under financial pressure and must cut back on services for needy animals due to a 30% decrease in donations, the 2009 closing of two Long Island shelters (Bide-A-Wee in Wantagh and Animal Haven in Flushing), and the bad economy, unemployment and foreclosures causing more animals to be surrendered to the shelter. Without holiday donations, Little Shelter will be forced to cut back on medical care for its 400 cats and 50 dogs and will reduce essential community animal care services.
