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.

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!

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.

Doubts over whether Detroit bankruptcy plan gets job done
By David Greising, Karen Pierog and Tim Reid DETROIT Reuters) - Detroit’s plan to recover from bankruptcy includes several blueprints for a new future. Detroit is far short of the $1.7 billion it needs over the next 10 years to remove abandoned buildings, replace outdated technology and increase public safety to stem the exodus from the city. “What Detroit needed to start with was a reinvestment program,” said James Spiotto, managing director of Chapman Strategic Advisors, a municipal finance consultancy. “If you don’t solve the systemic problem and fix it for real, all you’re going to do is repeat it going forward.” Detroit’s 1,034-page plan for fixing the city’s finances will be the subject of a weeks-long bankruptcy court proceeding, beginning on Tuesday.

Fast-food workers to launch intensified protests across U.S.

Demonstrators chant in the driveway during a protest at the McDonald's headquarters in Oak BrookThe protests, announced on Twitter by organizer Fight For 15, come as cities across the nation propose minimum wage increases while Democrats seek to raise the federal minimum wage ahead of this year's mid-term congressional elections. Fast food workers have launched a series of protests over the last nearly two years to bring awareness to their demands, which include the right to unionize without retaliation. In one of the last major actions, restaurant workers launched rallies in 150 cities, including Boston, Chicago, New York and Miami in May. This time, organizers are staging walkouts in more than 100 cities and plan to use nonviolent civil disobedience tactics such as sit-ins, The New York Times reported.

California high school drops mascot criticized by Arab-American group
(Reuters) - A California high school has retired its Middle Eastern-themed mascot and accompanying belly dancers and redrawn its logo after criticism from Arab-Americans that they played on harmful stereotypes, a group advocating for the change said on Monday. Coachella Valley High School agreed to use a new image of a stoic-looking Arab man to represent its sports teams, dubbed "the Arabs," said Abed Ayoub, a spokesman for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, which worked with the school to choose the new logo.

Athens Olympics leave mixed legacy, 10 years later

In this Friday, Aug. 8, 2014 photo, the abandoned beach volleyball Olympic venue is seen in Neo Faliro, southern Athens. As Greece groans under a cruel depression, forecast to end this year, the 10-year anniversary once again raises the question of whether the Athens Games were too costly an undertaking for a weak economy. (AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)ATHENS, Greece (AP) — In an obscure corner of a park sits a forlorn reminder that, 10 years ago, Athens hosted the 2004 Summer Olympics. The crumbling miniature theater is inscribed with the words "glory, wealth, wisdom, victory, triumph, hero, labor" — and it is where visiting Olympic officials planted an olive sapling that would bear their names for posterity.

Risk appetite flickers in Europe, ECB speculation holds down euro

A man stands in front of an electronic board, showing the various stock prices, outside a brokerage in TokyoBy Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Risk appetite flickered back into life in financial markets on Tuesday with the dollar and European and Japanese shares rising while safe-haven bonds, the yen and gold all took a step back. The dollar rose to its highest since January against the yen and the euro sank to a one-year low against the greenback as another drop in euro zone producer prices heightened speculation about what the ECB will do when it meets on Thursday.

Japan's 'Abenomics' feared in trouble as challenges build

Japan's PM Abe attends a memorial service ceremony marking the the 69th anniversary of Japan's surrender in World War Two, at Budokan Hall in TokyoBy Linda Sieg and Tetsushi Kajimoto TOKYO (Reuters) - Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's plan for Japan's economy to generate self-sustained growth on the back of his three policy "arrows" of massive monetary easing, spending and reform appears to be faltering - but no magic solution is in sight. Abe's aides and advisers are promising to forge ahead with painful structural reforms, while spreading the benefits of "Abenomics" to regional areas and drafting a long-term vision for addressing Japan's shrinking population. Failure could leave Japan's economy stuck in a low-growth mode or worse, unable to begin to curb public debt already more than twice the size of a $5 trillion economy, the biggest burden in the industrialized world. Most voters favor delaying next year's sales tax rise to 10 percent after an initial hike in April to 8 percent from 5 percent dented a fragile recovery.

Quantitative easing hopefuls may be disappointed as Draghi plays for time

European Central Bank President Draghi speaks during the bank's monthly news conference in FrankfurtBy Eva Taylor FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Expectations for further policy action at the European Central Bank's meeting on Thursday are running high after ECB President Mario Draghi pledged to use all available tools to keep prices in check. Draghi told a central bank conference in Jackson Hole on Aug. 22 that financial market inflation expectations were falling significantly and the ECB would use "all available instruments needed to ensure price stability". In a dramatic departure from debt-cutting orthodoxy, he also said there was scope for fiscal policy - more government spending - to play a greater role in reviving growth, an apparent acknowledgement of the limits of the ECB's powers.

Dollar General raises Family Dollar bid, may go hostile

A price sign at a Dollar General store in Arvada, ColoradoDollar General Corp raised its bid for Family Dollar Stores Inc by 2 percent to $80 per share, or $9.1 billion, and warned it may turn hostile and appeal directly to shareholders if the new offer was rejected. Dollar General also said it would pay a break-up fee of $500 million if deal ran foul of competition law, the reason Family Dollar had cited for its rejection the earlier offer and opting instead for an $8.5 billion cash-and-stock bid from Dollar Tree Inc . Family Dollar's shares were up almost 1 percent at $80.50 in premarket trading, above Dollar General's cash offer, suggesting some investors held hopes of higher offers. "In the event you refuse to engage with us regarding our revised proposal, we will consider taking our persuasive and superior proposal directly to your shareholders," Dollar General Chief Executive Rick Dreiling said in a letter to Family Dollar's board on Tuesday.
