U.S. markets stick to regular hours with pending storm

Yahoo News - 52 min 37 sec ago
U.S. financial markets sought to do business as usual on Monday even though a potentially historic blizzard might dump up to 3 feet (90 cm) of snow on the East Coast and disrupt travel for tens of millions of people. The New York Stock Exchange said it currently plans to stay open for normal operating hours Monday and Tuesday, a NYSE spokesman said. Meanwhile, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, which represents U.S. bond dealers and investors, said the domestic fixed income market will stick to its regular trading hours Monday and Tuesday, a SIFMA spokeswoman said. I don’t suspect it will be an issue at all," said Ken Polcari, director of the NYSE floor division at O’Neil Securities in New York.

Judge puts Alabama same-sex marriages on hold after striking down ban

Yahoo News - 1 hour 34 min ago
(Reuters) - Same-sex couples in Alabama will have to put their wedding plans on hold after a federal judge issued a two-week stay on her ruling that struck down the state's laws banning gay marriages, including those performed legally in other states. U.S. District Court Judge Callie Granade said in an order issued on Sunday that she would give the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals until Feb. 9 to decide whether gay marriages should continue to be delayed in the state. The stay came two days after Granade ruled that Alabama's prohibition on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, clearing the way for the conservative southern state to become the 37th U.S. state to allow same-sex couples to wed. Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange immediately asked for a stay, arguing it was best to wait until the U.S. Supreme Court decides later this year whether states can ban gay marriage.

Yahoo News - 3 hours 15 min ago

In this Jan. 4, 2015 photo, the computer, modem and intranet network cabling belonging to Rafael Antonio Broche Moreno sits on a desk at his home in Havana. Home Internet connections are banned for all but a handful of Cubans, and the government charges nearly a quarter of a month’s salary for an hour online in government-run hotels and Internet centers. But a small minority have covertly engineered a partial solution by pooling funds to create a private network of more than 9,000 computers with small, inexpensive but powerful hidden Wi-Fi antennas and Ethernet cables strung over streets and rooftops spanning the entire city. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)HAVANA (AP) — Cut off from the Internet, young Cubans have quietly linked thousands of computers into a hidden network that stretches miles across Havana, letting them chat with friends, play games and download hit movies in a mini-replica of the online world that most can't access.
