Jim Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, said Friday he expects the coronavirus to be a short-term problem that won't lead to a cut in interest rates. “There’s a high probability that the coronavirus will blow over as other viruses have, be a temporary shock and everything will come back,” Bullard told CNBC's "Squawk Box." Bullard said, as he has before, that he doesn't expect a recession this year and that a Fed rate cut is not needed a t this time.

Columbus jobs forecast predicts growth, but with region trailing U.S.
The robust growth of the Columbus region's economy since the Great Recession has slowed the past couple of years, and that trend is likely to continue in 2020, according to a new forecast. Local economist Bill LaFayette in his annual forecast predicts the region will add 11,100 jobs next year, for a growth rate of just 1.0%. That would be slower than last year's 1.5% growth, when the region added a net 13,100 jobs, and is lower than the predicted 1.2% growth for jobs overall across the United States.… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Biotechnology headlines)

A measurement of the Hubble constant from angular diameter distances to two gravitational lenses
The local expansion rate of the Universe is parametrized by the Hubble constant, , the ratio between recession velocity and distance. Different techniques lead to inconsistent estimates of . Observations of Type Ia supernovae (SNe) can be used to measure , but this requires an external calibrator to convert relative distances to absolute ones. We use the angular diameter distance to strong gravitational lenses as a suitable calibrator, which is only weakly sensitive to cosmological assumptions. We determine the angular diameter distances to two gravitational lenses, and megaparsec, at redshifts and . Using these absolute d...

And he has struggled to get enough to eat. Earlier this year, he ended up in the hospital after burning himself while boiling water for oatmeal. The long stay caused the Memphis vet to fall off a charity’s rolls for home-delivered Meals on Wheels, so he had to rely on others, such as his son, a generous off-duty nurse and a local church to bring him food. “Many times, I’ve felt like I was starving,” he says. “There’s neighbors that...

As the ancient planet Theia struck its glancing blow into Tellus, the planet that would become Earth, part of its mantle sloughed off into that of the planet it had struck, but some drove on past, pushing a layer of Tellurian mantle ahead of it like mud on the blade of a bulldozer. Still traveling with more than half of Theia’s original speed, blade and burden rose together back out into space. Much fell back. Much did not. Some escaped completely to form a short-lived ring around the Sun. But a lot stayed in orbit around the wrecked, reforming planet below. It was from that fiery orbital aftermath that the Moon was ...
