NFL launches voice-powered football guide for Amazon Alexa

The National Football League (NFL) has launched voice-recognition content for Amazon’s virtual assistant Alexa that will teach fans about players, rules and the history of American football.

Rolled out on Thursday, “The Rookie’s Guide to the NFL” will allow users to ask Alexa-enabled devices questions about the sport. The Alexa skill – a downloadable add-on – is available for free in all of Alexa’s English language regions. It can tell users about the technicalities of the game and define more than 1,000 NFL terms, rules and jargon such as “encroachment” and “snap count.”

Users who enable the guide on their device can ask for a random fact or specify questions such as “How tall is Aaron Rodgers?” or “Who won Super Bowl 35?”

The guide also has content to help fans prepare for the Super Bowl, weekly playoff previews from Super Bowl winner Osi Umenyiora, and bios of every active NFL player.

The NFL defined the content as “a guide for everyone, from newbies to experts,” on its website.

Using Amazon’s Alexa platform isn’t the sports giant’s first venture into voice recognition technology. The NFL already offers an add-on for Google Home devices, “The NFL in :60,” which provides daily news updates.

Don't panic: Here's your bear market survival guide

While the overall market is beaten down this year, there are still some outliers that typically hold up well in an economic downturn, especially discounted retail stores. Shares of Dollar General have returned 10 percent this year, drastically outperforming the S&P 500 which has lost 12 percent in 2018.

“They did very well during the last bear market for obvious reasons because people still buy from there and they ratchet down in their spending. It’s consistent spending,” said Tom Essaye, founder of Sevens Report Research.

“In bear markets, you want to go high quality and reliable revenue streams. Consumer staples is the one group that should continue to be able to grow their business regardless of what is happening,” he added.

Aside from holding cash, it might also be a good time to look at safe havens gold and silver, which will likely benefit from a weakening dollar next year. The Federal Reserve’s interest rate hikes had been supporting the greenback until the central bank’s somewhat dovish signal at its last meeting pared back its strength.

“That is an asset class that is going to benefit in this type of an environment, especially if the Fed is probably done hiking interest rates in this cycle. I wouldn’t buy them just for the sake of being safe haven. I would buy them because I expect dollar weakness next year. The strength in the dollar this year has really been the only thing that kept them from rallying further,” Boockvar said.

Gold rose to its highest in six months on Wednesday as worries over the partial government shutdown and President Donald Trump’s criticism of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell drove investors toward the safe haven metal.

“Gold and gold stocks have done well recently, and they will probably continue to do so especially when we are in an era of a declining dollar. That will give gold and gold stocks a tail wind,” Essaye said.

Here's the ultimate guide to using your brand new iPhone

This is really cool. Siri gets a power boost in iOS 12 with Siri Shortcuts, which allows it to tap into third-party apps. You can ask about upcoming trips through TripIt, for example or run a few tasks in a row, like automatically open up Maps with a route to work and your favorite morning playlist.

Here’s how to get started:

Download the Shortcuts app from the App Store

Open Shortcuts.

Tap “Create Shortcut.”

Choose one of the presets. I recommend starting with “Get Current Song.”

Tap “Allow Access” to your music library.

Tap “OK.”

Tap the blue and white icon on the top right of the app.

Name the Shortcut. I just used the generic “Get current song.”

Tap “Done.”

Tap “Done” again.

Now, when you say, “Siri, get current song,” it will analyze the music that’s playing and tell you what song it is.

Some other fun ones: Create a shortcut for heading to work that shows traffic and plays your music. Or create one that automatically takes a picture when you say, “Siri, say cheese.” Or set one that automatically calls into a meeting using your conference number and code. There’s a lot to dig through, so play around.

You can also set third-party app shortcuts by doing this:

Open Settings.

Tap Siri & Search.

Choose an app — like TripIt, which is an early one to support this new feature.

If it has custom shortcuts, you’ll see an option called “Shortcuts.” Tap it.

Tap one of them. In TripIt, for example, you can set one for “Upcoming travel plans.”

Now, when you say “Siri, upcoming travel plans” it will tap into TripIt and show your upcoming trip results.

Airplane class wars are now in the coach cabin. Here's your guide

Love it or hate it, flying coach has never been more complicated.

Airlines are dividing up the scores of seats behind first or business class into smaller and smaller sections, each with their own set of perks — or lack thereof. The strategy is playing out in the refurbished cabins and new jets of major U.S. airlines. Carriers are nudging passengers to shell out more for comforts like extra legroom, better food and seat-back screens, or perks that used to come with the cost of a ticket, such a coveted aisle seat or one next to your travel partner, or the use of overhead bins.

Coach class’s roots stretch back to 1950s and ’60s when it caught on with carriers that tried to fill more seats with cheaper fares in exchange for a more stripped-down service, since business travelers or other high-paying flyers didn’t fill the planes.

“Business travelers have always been the bread and butter of aviation,” said Bob van der Linden, chairman of the aeronautics department at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum. “They couldn’t get a full airplane full of businessmen on every flight.”

Business and other premium cabins remain an outsize source of revenue for airlines. They accounted for 5.3 percent of international passenger traffic but generated 27 percent of revenue last year, according to the International Air Transport Association, an industry group that represents about 80 percent of the world’s airlines. Last week, Delta Air Lines’ CEO said the airline is less reliant on coach-cabin revenue as demand for lucrative premium-class seats has surged.

But the coach cabin is often the largest piece of the pie, and airlines are paying special attention about how to divide it up as they fit more seats on board and travel demand climbs.

Cramer's guide to knowing when a stock's dividend is safe

In times of stock market volatility, investors tend to flock to “safe” stocks that offer steady growth and high dividends. But high-yielding securities can come with unexpected risks, CNBC’s Jim Cramer warned Monday as stocks traded lower.

“The risks are enormous if you don’t know the pitfalls,” he told investors. “As much as we love dividends, they’re only worth chasing after if your payout is safe. So if you want some income from your stocks, you need to watch out for red flags.”

The first red flag is when a company has a very high dividend yield, Cramer said. That tends to mean that investors, worried about potential dividend cuts, have been selling the stock and pushing the dividend yield percentage higher.

But the more insidious warning sign is when a company offers an attractive dividend, but can’t pay it consistently because it has loads of debt and poor fundamentals, the “Mad Money” host said.

That was what “doomed the payouts” at beer manufacturer Anheuser-Busch InBev and ailing industrial General Electric, Cramer said, pointing to the stocks’ recent weakness to cement his point.

Budweiser parent Anheuser-Busch, for example, has accumulated a $109-billion “mountain of debt” from a series of large-scale acquisitions. In the company’s latest earnings report, which was weaker than expected, management said it was going to “rebase” the dividend, cutting the 5.2 percent yield down to 2.6 percent.

“The problem? Less than 25 percent of BUD’s sales come from the United States, and the dollar … has been very strong lately, [which] means all of their sales in euros or pesos have to translate … into fewer greenbacks,” Cramer explained. “They need to take severe action in order to keep paying their dollar-denominated debts. It’s an ugly situation. No wonder the stock got pulverized.”

In the case of GE, former CEO John Flannery halved the dividend a year ago, bringing the 24-cent yield down to 12 cents as the company grappled with multi-billion-dollar charges tied to its struggling business segments. When former Danaher chief Larry Culp replaced Flannery as CEO in October, he cut the dividend down to 1 cent after realizing that GE’s problems were worse than expected.

“This was totally predictable, … [but] many investors got burned,” Cramer said. “The bottom line? There is no such thing as a large dividend you can take for granted. Just like we saw with BUD and GE, a hideous balance sheet and slowing fundamentals are a toxic brew that can put your dividend in danger. So if you want income, watch for that or else you might just get burned.”

Navigating fintech's rise: IMF, World Bank launch guide for policymakers

The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank jointly released a paper that will guide policymakers around the world in their handling of the rise of financial technology — commonly known as fintech.

The paper, called the Bali Fintech Agenda, was launched on Thursday on the Indonesian island where the IMF and the World Bank are holding their annual meetings.

The paper outlines 12 “elements” or considerations that the IMF, the World Bank and governments can keep in mind when designing policies and regulations that can maximize the benefits of fintech while keeping financial systems sound.

Those “elements” include using fintech to promote financial inclusion, allowing new technology players to have level playing fields with existing companies and having countries work together to protect the global financial system.

Fintech has the potential to reach the 1.7 billion adults in the world that don’t have access to financial services, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said in a statement.

But, new technology could threaten existing financial systems. For example, volatility in the price of cryptocurrencies has raised concerns about investor protection, according to the paper.

“Fintech can have a major social and economic impact for them and across the membership in general. All countries are trying to reap these benefits, while also mitigating the risks,” Lagarde said.

“We need greater international cooperation to achieve that, and to make sure the fintech revolution benefits the many and not just the few,” she added.

World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim said fintech would be particularly helpful to low-income countries, where access to financial services is low.

Both organizations said the paper doesn’t represent current work, nor does it aim to provide specific guidance or policy advice. They will, however, start to develop specific programs on fintech.

The IMF will focus initially on the implications on monetary and financial stability and how international monetary systems and global financial safety nets evolve. The World Bank will work on using fintech to deepen financial markets, enhance responsible access to financial services, and improve cross-border payments and remittance transfer systems.

Over half of millennials would rather clean their homes than deal with a car salesman. And over 60 percent of people, even those with vehicle-buying experience, believe they’ve been taken advantage of at some point while car shopping, according to a Harris poll of over 2,000 consumers.

Knowing how to approach a dealership and the price negotiation process can really reduce the anxiety around buying a car — and help you feel confident you’re getting a good deal.

Since knowing your stuff can reduce the overall amount you end up paying, it’s especially important for younger buyers. “If you’re in your early 20s, you not only have your life before you, but you’ve got a lifetime of expenses ahead of you as well. There are other things to be saving your money and spending it on,” Jeff Bartlett, deputy editor of autos for Consumer Reports, tells CNBC Make It.

You don’t have to end up feeling confused and exploited when shopping for cars at a dealership. The auto experts at Consumer Reports recommend 10 strategies to help you get the car you want at the price you can afford.

Your step-by-step guide to winning the lottery: Would you know what to do?

What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?

A New York attorney who says he has represented more than 30 lottery winners has two words of advice: “Stay quiet.”

“You want to make sure you don’t tell your family and your friends that you’re this new multimillionaire,” self-proclaimed “lottery lawyer” Jason Kurland told CNBC’s “American Greed.” “I know it’s something you’re going to want to do but you really need to keep quiet.”

Kurland says those early days after the drawing are critical. You only get the one chance to do it right.

“The time between the time you know you won and claiming (your prize) is your last chance of normalcy,” he said. “So that’s the time you’re going to want to assemble your team of professionals: lawyers, financial planners, accountants. And you don’t want friends and family coming out of the woodwork asking for handouts before you’ve even come forward to the world.”

Kurland has represented some of the biggest lottery winners in history. It is a tiny niche in the legal profession, but one he finds fascinating.

“Everybody plays the lottery, whether you’re from a rich neighborhood or poorer neighborhood, all over the country, young, old, married, single, lot of children, grandchildren, everybody comes,” he said. “Watching them each grow into their new life is very exciting.”

As different as every winner is, Kurland says their stories have common threads that are important to know about should you hit it big.

Italy's 2019 budget guide

There’s certainly been no sign recently that Lega and M5S are ready to cut spending, or row back on their promises to the electorate.

Despite the Fitch downgrade and their economy minister’s attempt at reassuring the markets, Salvini and Di Maio appeared bullish with the former tweeting Saturday that tax cuts would be implemented “step by step.”

His colleague Di Maio stated Sunday that Italian citizens came before ratings agencies, pledging to see through his party’s campaign promise to introduce a universal income for the poor. On Tuesday, Salvini also questioned the EU’s fairness when it comes to the leeway over budget deficits and the independence of ratings agencies.

“But how, if France and Spain have been extending the 3% ceiling for years, nobody says anything, while if Italy tries to touch it to secure the country and boost the consumption of Italians is a problem?

But were not these rating agencies independent?” he said on Twitter.

Also on Tuesday, after his Lega party held a summit on the economy, Salvini was quoted listing the party’s plans.

“We discussed the numbers, accounts and timeframes to achieve within the arc of the legislature our proposals for families and businesses: dismantling the Fornero law, (introducing a) flat tax, fiscal peace and closure of the disputes with (state tax collection agency) Equitalia, less bureaucracy for firms and VAT holders, elimination of the oldest levies on petrol … (and) a major national plan for ordinary and extraordinary maintenance (of infrastructure),” ANSA reported.
