Laval resident Pascale Cecile Veronique Ferrier, 53, has been charged with threatening Trump after allegedly sending the letter containing ricin to the president and six other Texas-based addresses. The letter destined for Trump was intercepted at a screening facility on Friday.

After a waiting game early on Thursday, U.S. stocks moved higher at the open after the Federal Reserve outlined a new monetary policy approach.

The central bank adopted an average inflation target of 2% to its written policy strategy, which is widely seen as leading an easier monetary policy stance over time. Chairman Jerome Powell announced the Fed now expects to allow inflation to run above 2% in expansions to make up for shortfalls during contractions. It would allow the Fed to keep policy loose even if inflation jumps above 2% in the months ahead.

I once heard someone say you’ve beaten the odds if your small business is still open after five years, profitably or not. If so, then my wife Grace and I did something right.

We opened a hair salon in 2002 just outside Austin, Texas. We’re still in business now, though a lot has changed recently.

We were a good team to start this business. She’d been doing top-level hair design for 20+ years. I had a few financial and marketing skills. We named it “Transformation” because change was our specialty. COVID-19 was a change we didn’t expect.

Small Business in a Pandemic

Because I watch the economic news and saw what happened in China and then Italy, we acted early in February to enhance our already-high salon hygiene standards. We made some physical changes to simplify cleaning and looked (unsuccessfully) for medical-grade protective gear. On
