Businesses appear reluctant to step up spending on the basic building blocks of the economy, such as machines, computers and new buildings.

 IMF Adds Chinese Yuan as Lending-Reserve Currency
Marking a milestone in China’s ascendancy as a global economic power, the International Monetary Fund added the Chinese yuan to its basket of elite reserve-lending currencies.

 China Manufacturing Reports Point to Difficulty in Meeting Growth Goals

Seriously, though, donate to Planned Parenthood right now. The quiet holiday weekend dragged on for nearly one and a half whole days before a terrorist attacked the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, ultimately murdering Garrett Swasey, a police officer and father of two young children, and two civilians: Jennifer Markovsky, a 35-year-old mother of two, and Ke'Arre Stewart, an Army veteran who served in Iraq and was also a father of two. Of course, as Republican strategist Amanda Carpenter told Yahoo News's Hunter Walker, this was "politically uncomfortable" for the Republican presidential candidates, who naturally find it awkward when their womens' health and gun control policies are implemented by freelancers. They all ultimately made the prudent decision not to openly praise the shooter. Ben Carson suggested a peaceful dialogue would be a good way to decide whether mothers, police officers, and military vets should be murdered. Carly Fiorina called the killer "a protester" just like Black Lives Matter. Mike Huckabee called it "domestic terrorism" (hey that's pretty good right–) "…especially for those us in the pro-life movement." (oh.) The killer is already being carefully excised from his community of violent radicals, but Secret Gamer Girl is not going to let that stand. She traced the very clear and open connections between the Planned Parenthood attacker, the men who attacked Black Lives Matter protesters in Minneapolis, Gamergate, and the internet's white supremacist movement. It's long but if you read nothing else about all this chaos, read this, and understand: this is an organized terrorist movement. The other thing you should read, which is much shorter, is Roqayah Chamseddine on why no one needs your sarcastic performative jokes about tragedy: "What many are calling sarcasm is in fact nothing more than an impotent masquerade." You can donate to Planned Parenthood here. Read Full Story

One of the largest intelligence initiatives of the post-9/11 era is over, but critics worry that it could be revived through a legal loophole.One of the most infamous signifiers of the post-9/11 era quietly ended on Sunday.
