Why a Historically Reliable Recession Indicator May No Longer Be Accurate

Why a Historically Reliable Recession Indicator May No Longer Be Accurate

Wall Street’s most reliable recession indicator started signaling trouble in 2022 and hasn’t stopped since, but so far it has proven wrong every time. The yield on 10-year Treasuries has been lower than that of many shorter-term bonds, a scenario known as an inverted yield curve, which has historically preceded nearly every recession since the 1950s.

76ers sign Paul George, secure Maxey extension, set championship aspirations

76ers sign Paul George, secure Maxey extension, set championship aspirations

A year ago, the 76ers asked Maxey to delay signing a contract extension, promising that it would be worth it. At the time, Maxey was not yet an All-Star and had not scored 50 points in a game. The delay allowed the team to effectively manage the salary cap, entering free agency with about $65 million to spend. This strategic move paid off when the 76ers acquired Paul George from the Los Angeles Clippers on a four-year, $212 million deal.…

Groundbreaking Study Reveals Production of 'Dark Oxygen' by Seafloor Metals

Groundbreaking Study Reveals Production of 'Dark Oxygen' by Seafloor Metals

An international team of researchers has made a groundbreaking discovery: oxygen can be generated in total darkness, about 4,000 meters below the ocean surface. This surprising discovery was published in the journal Nature Geosciences Monday and challenges long-held beliefs about the origins of oxygen on Earth. The discovery focuses on potato-shaped metallic nodules found deep in the Pacific Ocean. These nodules, found at depths of about 13,100 feet, have been shown to produce oxygen through a process that does not require sunlight, overturning the traditional understanding that photosynthesis by plants and algae is the primary source of oxygen on our…

Tennis Takes a Wild Turn at the 2024 Paris Olympics

In less than two months, the world’s best tennis players will return to the courts of Roland Garros, just weeks after leaving them, to compete at the 2024 Paris Olympics. This year’s Olympic program presents unique challenges, as athletes must quickly adapt from clay to grass and back to clay before moving on to hard courts in North America.
