So when the show’s lead, James Gandolfini, was found dead from a sudden heart attack in his Rome hotel room in 2013, his co-star and TV daughter Jamie-Lynn Sigler felt a cruel irony in the immense loss. For Sigler, losing Gandolfini wasn’t just about coping with the death of a colleague. As she tells “Oprah: Where Are They Now?”, the 51-year old had become like family ― not just to her, ...

Futures Analysis
The Street - about 3 years
By Kathy Garber S&P futures has tested an intraday confluence support at 1785.75. This is the bottom of an uptrend Pitchfork line that correlates with a potential triangle point for an emerging harmonic pattern called Bullish Butterfly. Even though the overall trend is up as shown with the Pitchfork channel, a completion of a harmonic pattern will cause price to break below the channel support line, altering the upside bias. This confluence support bounce is forming a required upside leg which has a minimum target of 1796.28 and maximum target at 1812.50. There is moving average confluence at the minimum target at 1796.25, so this enforces the importance of whether this level holds as resistance or not. A hold above 1796.25 has the initial target, which also has confluence with the Pitchfork midline at 1802.50; above there has the target of 1812.50 and the top of the Pitchfork. A rejection of 1796.25 has the retest support target at the 1785.75. It will be important if ...

With the bleak word from the state's largest utility that the lights could be out until after the start of the new year, many residents who awoke snowbound on Wednesday were jamming the city's hotel rooms by Thursday night. "I'm coping with hot toddies and peanuts," said Lynda Johnson, who lined up a series of hotel stays through hotels.com to make it at least through Saturday night. She has already been to the movies — she saw "Django Unchained" — and checked in with neighbors multiple times to see i ...
