Taking out a student loan was supposed to be a good investment in your future, but now that loan has turned into a long term debt.

Today, more and more Americans over 40 are still paying back their student loans. Their numbers have gone up significantly in the past 10 years.

The state's attorney general on Tuesday sent letters to daily fantasy sports websites DraftKings and FanDuel demanding they turn over details of any investigations into their employees, saying they "may have gained an unfair, financial advantage in a contest known as Daily Fantasy Football."

The letters were prompted by media reports a DraftKings employee may have had access to valuable company data before winning second place in a FanDuel contest. The incident has been likened to insider trading.

The Supreme Court said Monday it won't hear the Obama administration's appeal of a lower court ruling that made it tougher to prosecute people for trading on leaked inside information.

The justices let stand a decision by the federal appeals court in New York last year that threw out insider trading convictions of two high-profile hedge fund managers.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the convictions of Anthony Chiasson, of Manhattan, and Todd Newman, of Needham, Massachusetts, after finding they were too far removed from inside information to be prosecuted.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has been somewhat reticent about speaking out on the national stage, has lately been talking about the issue of gun violence, saying it should be a key topic in Congress and in the 2016 campaigns.

Cuomo called in to the New York City cable news channel New York One, to talk about a potential hurricane, which later veered away from the East Coast. But quickly, the conversation turned to the recent mass shooting in Oregon and what to do about gun violence.

For the first half of this year, state officials found that, even though the market was flat, Wall Street profits rose 29 percent compared to this time last year. Officials attribute most of the boon to a decrease in legal fees related to recession-related wrongdoing. New York Comptroller Tom DiNapoli said Wall Street also added jobs.
