Microsoft has been warning for a long time that it’s going to stop supporting Windows XP. We explore what ATMs - the majority of which still use the system - will do without Microsoft's support. Plus, as the Fed meets this week, Janet Yellen, a strong proponent of Fed transparency, will be watched to see how she talks about the Fed’s thinking as well as its actions. And how will countries like Turkey with emerging economies fare? After all, at the Fed's last meeting, countries like Turkey held emergency meetings and raised key interest rates to retain and attract money as the US central bank continue to cut back on its cash injections. Plus, Baton Rouge residents are trying to form a new town, but, it’s not that easy.
