IRS elaborates on delivery of $1,400 COVID relief payments

U.S. Treasury check image courtesy frankieleon via Flickr Some people have already received the third economic impact payment (EIP), which is $1,400 per person, as authorized under the just enacted American Rescue Plan.  Of course, we're already hearing some grumbling.

Homeless and humbled by grief, he found a home to last via pilot housing program

Chris Gray and his wife, Deborah, and the dog they’d adopted from a homeless friend, had criss-crossed Los Angeles County many times before they pulled up to the apartment building, praying that a program called LeaseUp had secured them a home to last. Gray lost his job at a carbon factory in 2015, and his apartment in Long Beach a year later. Since then, they’ve slept in their car, tried unsuccessfully to make a life in Lancaster and stayed in motels here and there, though that drained their me...

Business Insider got a behind-the-scenes look on board a 777 with the product manager and engineer who helped take the new design airborne. This footage was filmed on February 27, 202...

That’s my best bet at explaining at least some of the confusion around the explosive rise of NFTs, or nonfungible tokens. The token, minted on the blockchain, can give digital assets a unique signifier. In other words, anyone cou...
