Aries Horoscope for April 22, 2013

You can certainly use your charm to get what you want today, but wouldn't you rather go for a more challenging option? This is a good time to put yourself to the test. Instead of smiling, flirting or even sassing your way through things today, get serious and meet people directly. Address the issues straight on and people will take you more seriously. Your charms are usually a valuable strength, but today they could give people the idea that you can't get things through your brains alone.

Taurus Horoscope for April 22, 2013

Growth is a good thing, but you should take a break from pushing yourself right now. Today will not be best spent challenging yourself or starting any difficult (if revelatory) conversations. Settle in to a routine right now, and find comfort in doing the same things in familiar patterns. There is something to be said for predictability ... plus, if things never got boring, shaking them up again would not feel nearly as wonderful. Let the dust settle on your newly renovated life.

Gemini Horoscope for April 22, 2013

Have you ever have one of those dreams where you are trying to run as fast as you can, but somehow can't do much more than slowly inch your way along? Today might feel a bit like that -- frustrating, limiting, and yet somehow interesting. Whatever it is that is impeding your progress isn't clear, and it isn't important. There is no point in getting rid of the obstacles right now -- they are not going anywhere. Just try to have fun as you try to fun faster.

Cancer Horoscope for April 22, 2013

While things in your professional life are coming together quite nicely right now, not everything will be going as smoothly in your home life. This will definitely not be an easy day in terms of keeping that promise you made. You need more time to devote to this issue, so if you can, reschedule your day so that you can pay attention to the people who really matter. You don't have to address a certain issue or accomplish a specific goal -- you just need to spend more time with your family.

Leo Horoscope for April 22, 2013

Working in tandem with a new associate or friend will yield some entertaining rewards, so don't be shy about starting a new group project today! Roll up your sleeves and get ready to get going as soon as you hear about something that sounds interesting. Travel may be involved, too. You and this other person make a very good combination -- because you balance each other out and challenge each other not to think in the same old ways you're used to thinking.

Virgo Horoscope for April 22, 2013

Keep on keeping on -- you are closer than ever to getting what you want, and if you just keep going you will soon (very soon) see a sign that things are about to change the way you want them to. If you're on a diet, you'll notice your clothes fitting differently. If you're working on a new relationship, you will start to see this person open up in a deep and meaningful way. If you are just trying to stay positive, you will soon get the encouragement you need.

Libra Horoscope for April 22, 2013

When you encounter a new or confusing person today, be thorough with your questions -- the more meticulous you are with what you want to know, the more perceptive you have the capacity to be. This isn't an attempt to catch them in a lie or uncover some deep dark secret -- you're not interrogating them. There is no doubt that they will be flattered by your intense interest. And be prepared to answer your own detailed questions, should they choose to turn the tables.

Scorpio Horoscope for April 22, 2013

Today, you should try to mix things up a little. Don't behave the way that other people expect you to -- and see what happens when you act out of character. If you're usually shy in a new social situation, unleash your inner obnoxiousness and see what it's like to be the center of attention. If you're the one who usually is the life of the party, today pull back and watch things unfold from the sidelines. This new experience will be very educational.

Sagittarius Horoscope for April 22, 2013

What's on your mind right now? Good or bad, it's time to talk all about it. You are loved by all of your friends, so why not find one today who has time to listen? Sure, they might not be able to solve them, but they can help you figure out how to solve them. Being able to get things off your chest will make you feel so much better! That's the secret about friends -- it's not all about how they can make your life better. It's all about how they can make you feel better about yourself.

Capricorn Horoscope for April 22, 2013

People are giving you feedback that is genuine, although it might be hard for you to believe right now -- these people are not just praising you for their health, they really mean it! Have faith in yourself and understand that you're capable of amazing things. The worst mistake you can make today is to limit yourself. This applies to new relationships, career challenges and even business opportunities. Act on your ideas and climb out of your shell.

Aquarius Horoscope for April 22, 2013

You'll be most interested by intellectual pursuits today, so feel free to put off plans for frivolous activities if you can. Instead of shopping at the mall, pick up a book and settle into a comfy chair. Instead of vegging out on the couch to some reality TV, check out what's on the History channel. And instead of having a gossip session with friends, start a political conversation. Your brain is hungry for stimulation and challenges, and it won't be settled until it gets it.

Pisces Horoscope for April 22, 2013

Positive results may slow in coming in your life right now, but other people are getting behind you more and more. Your personal cheerleader squad is growing, so your spirits will be shiny and bright. Your ambition is also starting to burn a little brighter, but you should resist taking on any more challenging projects right now. Instead, just pick the path of least resistance and wait for everyone else to get on the same page as you. It won't take too long.

Compensation battle rages four years after BP's U.S. oil spill

File photo of fire boat response crews battling the blazing remnants of the offshore oil rig Deepwater Horizon off LouisianaFour years after the Deepwater Horizon spill, oil is still washing up on the long sandy beaches of Grand Isle, Louisiana, and some islanders are fed up with hearing from BP that the crisis is over. Jules Melancon, the last remaining oyster fisherman on an island dotted with colorful houses on stilts, says he has not found a single oyster alive in his leases in the area since the leak and relies on an onshore oyster nursery to make a living. The British oil major has paid out billions of dollars in compensation under a settlement experts say is unprecedented in its breadth. Some claimants are satisfied, but others are irate that BP is now challenging aspects of the settlement.

Smuggled cellphone use a growing concern for U.S. prisons

Handout photo shows mobile phones seized by Mississippi authorities at prisons across the stateBy Colleen Jenkins WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina (Reuters) - Cellphones smuggled into prisons by corrupt guards, concealed in food containers or hurled over security fences are an increasing worry for law enforcement as prisoners use them to intimidate witnesses, direct drug deals and plan escapes. The concerns about these contraband devices came into the national spotlight this month when U.S. officials accused a member of the notorious Bloods gang serving a life sentence in North Carolina of using a mobile phone hidden in his prison cell to arrange the kidnapping of the father of a woman who prosecuted him. There are no widely available reliable figures on how many cellphones are in the hands of the 2.3 million inmates in local, state and federal prisons in the United States, but statistics point to a swift rise of the problem. In California, for instance, the number of contraband cellphones discovered by corrections staff jumped to more than 15,000 in 2011, more than 10 times the 1,400 seized in 2007.

GM could benefit, too, from an ignition-switch victims fund

A man walks past a row of General Motors vehicles at a Chevrolet dealership on Woodward Avenue in Detroit, MichiganIf General Motors Co creates a fund to compensate victims of its faulty ignition switches, an option that a top legal adviser suggested it is exploring, the company could give up strong defenses to a wave of lawsuits. By setting up a fund, GM could avert years of civil litigation and limit its financial and reputational harm. GM has retained Kenneth Feinberg, a Washington lawyer who has overseen compensation funds for victims of high-profile catastrophes like the BP Plc oil spill and the September 11, 2001, attacks. Feinberg told CNBC on Wednesday that GM is "asking me to help develop some sort of program that might be used to compensate eligible claimants." Feinberg did not return a request for comment.

Wall Street Week Ahead: Spring fever brings hope for U.S. earnings

Traders gather at the booth that trades Abbott Laboratories on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Chuck Mikolajczak NEW YORK (Reuters) - Earnings season shifts into high gear next week, and with nearly one-third of S&P 500 names set to post results, investors hope the news provides a catalyst to buy stocks and leave the market's recent weakness in the dust. Several behemoths, including Apple, the largest U.S. company by market value, as well as Microsoft, McDonald's and AT&T , are due to report earnings. They'll be accompanied by highfliers like Netflix and Facebook, giving the first real cross-section of the state of corporate America as temperatures rise across the country and investors hope to put the cold weather behind them. Strategists will also be looking for clues on how badly China's slowdown hits U.S. corporate results.

Tech workers seek to use Steve Jobs evidence in upcoming trial on no-hire accords

The Apple logo is pictured at its flagship retail store in San FranciscoBy Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Four large technology companies should not be allowed to limit evidence about Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs at an upcoming trial over no-hire agreements in Silicon Valley, according to a court document filed late on Thursday by employees suing the firms. Tech workers brought a class action lawsuit against Apple, Google Inc, Intel Inc and Adobe Systems Inc in 2011, alleging they conspired to avoid competing for each other's employees in order to avert a salary war. The case, which is closely watched in Silicon Valley, is largely built on emails among top executives, including Apple's late chief executive Jobs and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt.
