First up, we’ll talk about what the Fed makes of your shopping habits — What we’re earning and how we’re spending it factors into what the Fed plans to do with interest rates. And with the announcement that a new $10 bill will feature a woman in 2020, we’ll take a look at why Hamilton’s face, and not Jackson’s, is being replaced. And construction of an 18-story optical-infrared telescope was set to begin on the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii, but native Hawaiian activists protested the telescope would harm the environment and desecrate a sacred mountain. We’ll talk about the controversy surrounding the $1.4 billion project.
