Marble Chief Executive Matt Delaney imagines a future where few people will be able to say that: Delivery robots will eliminate the need for many of the cars, trucks and vans on streets today, allowing cities to carve out much more space for pedestrians—many of whom will have their own personal robots in tow to carry things for them.
That vision might not fully come about for another generation or so, Mr. Delaney says, but he—like other entrepreneurs who are testing sidewalk robots in cities around the world—believes robots will be a common sight on city streets within a decade.
This week, in the time it took her to type out an Instagram screed, Louise Linton transformed herself from the Treasury secretary’s wife to a Real Housewife of the Treasury.

The uncomfortable incident two years ago, led Flores and her ex-husband to launch a legal battle for the rights of their daughter — a struggle that has encouraged the families of other trans children to demand greater acceptance and that has fed the broader debate about gender rights in a country so socially conservative that it legalized divorce just 13 years ago.
READ MORE: Transgender education, support programs in Peterborough find new hope in local partnership.

The rearmost portion of the Sir David Attenborough's stern is being moved from its production yard in Newcastle to Birkenhead where the rest of the hull is being built.

Commissioner Roger Goodell may get a lot of criticism for the way he has handled issues related to domestic violence, player celebrations and the investigation into so-called Deflategate, but by and large, the N.F.L.’s 32 team owners think he is doing a great job.
The commissioner has used that policy to suspend star players like New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, over an accusation that footballs were tampered with during a playoff game in 2015, and Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, whose former girlfriend accused him of assault.
The S&P rules say that companies with more than one class of stock will not be eligible to join its benchmark S&P 500, MidCap 400 and SmallCap 600 indexes, which track large, mid-size and small companies, respectively.
Imagine if S&P had issued its new rule years ago and that companies such as Facebook and Google parent Alphabet never became part of the S&P 500. According to an April report from investment firm State Street Global Advisors, if those and other companies with dual-class share structures were excluded from the S&P 500, the index’s returns would have fallen from 86.5% to 84.6% over the last decade.

Congress returns after Labor Day, following a month-long recess, and members will be facing a load of must-pass legislation.
Congress might attach a clean debt limit increase (i.e., an increase with no strings attached) to a CR and suspend it for a few years as it's done in previous situations, or suspend it for a few extra months to allow for a more comprehensive negotiation over the federal budget and debt.
Now, as tempers flare around the country over Confederate monuments and what they stand for, the Lees are grappling anew with the general’s checkered legacy.
Researchers at Stratford Hall, the historic plantation in Virginia where Lee was born, have described the kinship claim by Kizzie’s descendants as “tantalizing” and offered the hope that with further research, “maybe their journey will indeed lead to the Lees of Stratford.”
Appeared in the March 27, 2017, print edition as 'You Choose: $1 Million Vs. $5,000 Every Month?.'. The answer will tell you whether you suffer an ‘illusion of poverty’ or an ‘illusion of wealth’
Because they might be inclined to think about wealth in terms of monthly income as opposed to a large sum, they incorrectly assume that the $1 million they see on the screen equates to less than $5,000 a month.
