7. State of small business more mixed than administration says -

NEW YORK (AP) — As Small Business Week approaches, the nation's smallest companies in the aggregate are by many accounts doing fairly well. They're not, however, thriving en masse in direct response to Trump administration and Republican policies.

8. AP FACT CHECK: Trump spins fiction about diversity visas -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is going after the "horror show" known as the diversity visa lottery program. His description of it is pure fiction.

The president offered a multitude of fabrications and partial truths over the past week on the subject of immigration — both the legal and illegal varieties — as he declared a national emergency aimed at finding the money to build his border wall. He said drugs are flowing across the hinterlands from Mexico, not from border crossings, and suggested that the federal prison population is laden with hardened criminals who are in the U.S. illegally. Neither claim is substantiated.

9. Trump to take his case to build wall to prime-time audience -

WASHINGTON (AP) — With no breakthrough in sight, President Donald Trump will argue his case to the nation Tuesday night that a "crisis" at the U.S.-Mexico border requires the long and invulnerable wall he's demanding before ending the partial government shutdown. Hundreds of thousands of federal workers face missed paychecks Friday as the shutdown drags through a third week.

10. AP FACT CHECK: Trump claims innocence in probe; wall myths -

12. AP FACT CHECK: Prosecutors' filings do not exonerate Trump -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is in denial when it comes to the Russia investigation and other scandals besieging him.

The president insists he's been fully vindicated by court filings released Friday that lay out the level of cooperation from two of his former top advisers, whom prosecutors have accused of lying to federal investigators or Congress. In fact, Trump's Justice Department puts him in even greater legal jeopardy by directly implicating him in an illegal scheme involving hush money payments to a porn actress and a former Playboy model.

13. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's mangled truths on Russia probe, Cohen -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump can't seem to get his facts straight when it comes to the Russia investigation.

Facing pressure as his former advisers are caught lying by special counsel Robert Mueller, Trump is launching fresh attacks on the probe as politically biased and Mueller as hopelessly "conflicted." This runs counter to ethics experts in Trump's Justice Department who concluded that Mueller — a Republican — could fairly lead the probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

14. Tariff tensions shadow US, Canada, Mexico trade pact signing -

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — President Donald Trump signed a revised North American trade pact with the leaders of Canada and Mexico on Friday, declaring the deal a major victory for workers.

18. Rising oil prices haven't hurt the US economy so far -

DALLAS (AP) — America's rediscovered prowess in oil production is shaking up old notions about the impact of higher crude prices on the U.S. economy.

It has long been conventional wisdom that rising oil prices hurt the economy by forcing consumers to spend more on gasoline and heating their homes, leaving less for other things.

19. US industrial production rose a solid 0.4 percent in August -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. industrial production rose by a healthy 0.4 percent in August, boosted by gains in the production of autos, oil and natural gas.

The Federal Reserve said Friday that industrial production, which includes output at factories, mines and utilities, has climbed 4.9 percent over the past 12 months. Industrial production appears on track for its strongest annual growth since 2010, when it jumped 5.5 percent as the economy began to recover from the Great Recession.

20. AP-NORC Poll: Americans not enthused with Trump trade policy -

21. Getting personal: US, Turkish leaders feud over arrest -

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A detained American pastor has become a symbol of a growing rift between Turkey and the United States, but problems in the Cold War-era alliance as well as Turkey's own financial crisis are unlikely to dissipate even if he is released and Washington eases economic penalties.

22. US factory output rose solid 0.3 percent in July -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. manufacturing output rose a solid 0.3 percent last month, led by increased production of cars, electronics, and appliances.

25. US factories register faster-than-expected growth in June -

WASHINGTON (AP) — American factories expanded at an unexpectedly fast pace in June, another sign of strength for U.S. industry. But U.S. manufacturing will have to contend in coming months with uncertainty over trade and a strengthening dollar.

26. Markets say 'ciao' to Italy fears as stocks recover losses -

28. US durable goods orders up 2.6 percent in March -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Orders for long-lasting manufactured goods rose 2.6 percent in March, but a key category that tracks business investment spending fell for the third month out of the past four.

The big rise in orders for durable goods, which followed an even bigger 3.5 percent advance in February, was driven by a surge in demand for commercial aircraft, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. Airplane orders shot up 44.5 percent last month. Excluding the volatile transportation category, orders would have been flat last month after a modest 0.9 percent rise in February.

29. Wave of exits from West Wing sparks talk of brain drain -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump once presided over a reality show in which a key cast member exited each week. The same thing seems to be happening in his White House.

Trump's West Wing has descended into a period of unparalleled tumult amid a wave of staff departures — and despite the president's insistence that it's a place of "no Chaos, only great Energy!" The latest key figure to announce an exit: Gary Cohn, Trump's chief economic adviser, who had clashed with Trump over trade policy.

31. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's trade talk comes up short on facts -

32. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's 'easy' trade war defies history -

WASHINGTON (AP) — In agitating for a trade war, President Donald Trump may have forgotten William Tecumseh Sherman's adage that "war is hell."

SEATTLE (AP) — In a park in the middle of a leafy, bohemian neighborhood where homes list for close to $1 million, a tractor's massive claw scooped up the refuse of the homeless - mattresses, tents, wooden frames, a wicker chair, an outdoor propane heater.

53. Rising costs, fewer sales predicted for 2016 -

With 2015 in the rear view mirror, I shall gaze into my looking glass to predict what 2016 will provide those in real estate.

As the slight increase in interest rates did not spawn cataclysmic events, there will be two more interest rate increases, one in the first half of the year and one in the second. These will continue until rates hit about 7 percent in 2017, maybe even 7.5.

54. Another month of solid US hiring clears way for Fed hike -

WASHINGTON (AP) — If the Federal Reserve needed any final evidence that the economy is ready for higher interest rates, it got it on Friday.

55. SE Asia creates economic community, but challenges remain -

58. 5 reasons why US employers are showing confidence in economy -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Employers last month delivered a vote of confidence in the U.S. economy.

59. Why US economic growth has disappointed this year -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Like an underachieving student, the U.S. economy isn't living up to the high hopes it began the year with.

Consumers have been uncharacteristically frugal, even as the country added jobs and a sharp drop in gas prices over the past year left them more money to spend. Meanwhile, drilling companies reeling from cheaper oil have slashed spending much more rapidly than anyone expected.

60. Durable goods orders up, but business investment falls again -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Purchases of long-lasting manufactured goods in March jumped by the largest amount in eight months, but a closer look at the details reveals that businesses kept pruning their investment plans in the face of a softening U.S. economy.

61. BYOB: It's Brew Your Own Beer at some colleges -

POMONA, Calif. (AP) — A bachelor's in beer? A master's in malt? Not quite. But these days some colleges are teaching students to make beer as part of their studies.

When California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, fired up its gleaming new stainless steel brewery in December, it joined a small-but-growing number of colleges instructing students on how to produce high-quality craft beers. At the same time, it took the movement a step beyond — kegging the results of their labors and selling it on campus.

66. Bonds rally as stocks and oil prices extend slumps -

NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. economy ended last year on a tear, but financial markets are saying the outlook for this year is less bright.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Braced for a fight, President Barack Obama on Wednesday unveiled the most sweeping proposals for curbing gun violence in two decades, pressing a reluctant Congress to pass universal background checks and bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines like the ones used in the Newtown, Conn., school shooting.

87. Warning: Children can endanger home values -

As the New Year rolls in, the residential real estate inventory will increase in volume from its current surprisingly low levels.
