MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.5 percent in early trade. Australian shares were last down 0.1 percent. Markets in Japan are closed on Thursday for a public holiday. The rise in the broad Asian index followed a wobbly session on Wall Street overnight, as growth and trade concerns overcame an initial shift towards more risk-taking sparked by the Fed's dovish shift. In comments at the end of a two-day policy meeting Wednesday, the Fed abandoned projections for any interest rate hikes this year amid signs of an economic slowdown, and said it would halt the steady decline of its balance sheet in September. But while investors cheered the Fed's new approach, the reasons behind it sparked concern. … [Read more...] about Dovish Fed shift lifts Asian shares, dollar nurses losses

Joe Guillen Detroit Free Press Published 11:09 AM EST Nov 20, 2018 Robert Carmack is on the warpath — with Mayor Mike Duggan in his sights. The 59-year-old collision shop owner seems like an unlikely adversary for the Detroit mayor. But in the last week, Carmack has shown the gumption to dig into Duggan's personal life and expose whatever he finds. He pulled off a brazen stunt last Wednesday, airing surveillance footage of Duggan on two giant monitors outside city hall during the nighttime rush hour.
