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.

U.S. health insurers to pay $330 million in premium rebates

A woman picks up a leaflet at a health insurance enrollment event in Cudahy, California(Reuters) - U.S. health insurers will send out about $330 million in rebates to employers and individuals this summer under President Barack Obama's healthcare law, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said on Thursday. The law, often called Obamacare, requires insurance companies to refund customers when they spend less than 80 percent or 85 percent of healthcare premiums they collect for medical care. The rebates will go to about 6.8 million people and have a value of about $80 per family. They are to be sent by Aug. 1 either directly to consumers or to the employer providing the health coverage, who is required to pass the savings onto employees, the agency said in a report.

Preachers rail at police in funeral for NYC man who died in custody

Ellisha Flagg, sister of Eric Garner, arrives to attend his funeral in New YorkBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - Preacher after preacher stepped up to the pulpit at a sweltering Brooklyn church on Wednesday to express fury at the city's police force during the funeral of Eric Garner, who died soon after police put him in a banned chokehold. As hundreds of mourners fanned themselves against the heat, the outrage sparked across New York City by video recordings, which show Garner flat on a sidewalk pleading to the officer gripping his neck that he cannot breathe, was never far from the surface. Between bursts of gospel singing, ministers preached loudly and angrily over Garner's flower-bedecked white coffin, expressing impatience with promises from Mayor Bill de Blasio and his police commissioner, Bill Bratton, that the training of police officers will be overhauled. "Let's not play games with this," Rev. Al Sharpton, the civil rights activist, said halfway through the service at Bethel Baptist Church, thrusting a pointed hand into the air.

Colorado theater gunman's lawyers challenge firearms analysis

Accused Aurora theater gunman James Holmes listens during his arraignment in CentennialBy Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Lawyers defending accused theater gunman James Holmes challenged the reliability of firearms analysis on Wednesday, despite conceding that their client was solely responsible for the 2012 massacre that killed 12 moviegoers. In a hearing before Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour, public defenders sought to have expert ballistics testimony precluded from the onetime neuroscience graduate student's murder trial. Dale Higashi, an agent with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, said all the bullet fragments and shell casings that he analyzed from the crime scene could be traced to three of the weapons belonging to Holmes. Defense lawyers argued that firearms analysis is subjective, and not based on quantifiable scientific fact.

Facebook beats Wall Street targets, stock hits record high

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks during a news conference at Facebook headquarters in Palo AltoBy Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook Inc's fast-growing mobile advertising business helped drive a 61 percent increase in revenue during the second quarter, beating Wall Street's financial targets and sending shares to a record-high in after-hours trading on Wednesday. Facebook now counts 1.5 million advertising customers and the company's ad business saw strong growth across all of its geographic regions, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday. Investors bid up shares of Facebook roughly 5 percent to $75.13 in after-hours trading on Wednesday, giving the Internet company a roughly $190 billion valuation, putting it on par with IBM Corp. "It might be more expensive from a market cap perspective, but I don’t think anyone was expecting this level of profitability," JMP Securities analyst Ronald Josey said. Facebook's operating margin expanded to 48 percent of revenue in the second quarter, up from 31 percent in the year-ago period.

Republican lawmaker to grill U.S. SEC over Ackman tactics

To match Special Report SEC/INVESTIGATIONSBy Sarah N. Lynch WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. lawmaker will pressure the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday to consider a raft of reforms, after William Ackman's aggressive efforts to take over Allergan Inc raised concerns about loose rules governing disclosure and shareholder voting. Republican Representative Edward Royce of California plans to grill SEC Corporation Finance Director Keith Higgins at a House Financial Services hearing. "I am especially interested in the SEC’s process when looking at novel or creative deals like the announced joint-bid by Valeant Pharmaceuticals and Pershing Square for Allergan,” Royce said in a statement. “Mr. Higgins’ appearance before the committee is an opportunity to make sure that the Commission is making robust reviews of these sorts of deals to ensure strong investor protections and market transparency.” Saat Alety, Royce's spokesman, said that Royce is prepared to take legislative action if the SEC fails to fix the problem on its own.
