Asian shares ride Wall Street surge, oil rally

Asian shares on Thursday latched on to a dramatic surge on Wall Street as markets, battered by a recent drum roll of deepening political and economic gloom, cheered upbeat U.S. data and the Trump administration's effort to shore up investor confidence.

There was also some attem...

U.S. stocks surged Wednesday, recovering all their losses from a Christmas Eve plunge and placing the market on track for its best day in nine months.

Energy stocks also rebounded as the price of U.S. crude oil notched its bigg...

How to actually make and keep New Year's resolutions, according to a behavioral scientist

Most people don't keep their New Year's resolutions. Psychologists say that in order to make successful changes, you have to want things to be different and stick to your plan. If you're trying to break an old habit, replace it with a new one.  New Year's resolutions can be tough to keep. As former President Barack Obama told Prince Harry in an interview last year, "I’m not sure I believe in New Year’s resolutions — typically people break them." Meghan Markle also once said she isn’t a fan of...
