The survey sample included 650 adults self-identified as “non-retired” and 322 as “retired.”Only 5% of non-retired Americans reported that they had already reached their retirement goals.The study finds that this lack of overall confidence tracks with anxiety about the financial aspects of retirement – with two-in-five non-retired Americans (42%) saying they are either very anxious (14%) or somewhat anxious (29%).
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission released a map of how the cable markets will be divvied up.Local Comcast customers may soon have a new cable provider after a deal was reached Monday.The cable company has agreed to drop customers in Indiana and several other states in an effort to meet demands from federal regulators.The complex deal is part of an FCC approval process following Comcast acquiring Time Warner Cable. Federal regulators look to hinder Comcast from becoming too large and having a grip on the cable market.Comcast reached the deal to drop 3.9 million customers, including many in Southeast Indiana.The plan is to have local customers, and those throughout the state, to subscribe to a new startup company called SpinCo.The new company will be overseen by Charter Communications which is currently the fourth largest cable provider in the U.S. Following new subscribers from Comcast and Time Warner, Charter would likely become the second-largest cable company in the nation.The deal is subject to change over FCC approval of Comcast’s merger with TWC.

Contract: 2 years, $42.2 millionWhen LeBron left Cleveland, the idea that he might someday return always existed but many believed that bridge was burned with Dan Gilbert’s infamous letter. Although he did promise the city of Miami more than two championships, once Cleveland had a young star in Kyrie Irving and multiple pieces to get another star through a trade, his return to Cleveland made more sense. As great as LeBron was, he never had enough of a supporting cast in Cleveland to deliver a title in his first stint with the Cavs, reaching the Finals just once. When it was time to choose between playing with an aging trio in Miami or returning home to lead a talented but less-experienced group, James ultimately chose wisely. Few players appear to have as much passion for their city as LeBron has for Cleveland, and he seemed as moved as anyone when the 2016 title he helped win ended the city’s decades-long history of coming up short.2018Previous Team: Cleveland CavaliersNew Team: LakersContract: 4 years, $153.3 millionJames said he would factor family – he has three children, and his oldest son is a rising basketball star about to begin high school – into the choice of where he plays next. He already had some shallow roots on the West Coast with two homes in the Los Angeles area and a film production company, and the chance to join one of the league’s most iconic franchises clearly held some appeal. His management agency, Klutch Sports Group, announced his agreement with the Lakers with a simple, 36-word press release. James said following this year’s NBA Finals loss – his eighth straight Finals appearance – that he remains in “championship mode,” so now the pressure is on the Lakers to deliver him a roster that can contend. With the ability to sign another maximum-contract player in addition to James, the Lakers hope to build a “super team” around him, adding at least one more elite player to an already promising young core. This is the third time LeBron James has announced a major career move, sending shockwaves through the league each time. Here’s a quick recap of each decision.2010Previous Team: Cleveland CavaliersNew Team: Miami Heat Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersContract: 6 years, $110 million“This fall, I’m going to take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat.” There was plenty of speculation that James was getting frustrated with the Cavaliers’ constant playoff failure, but most believed he would return to Cleveland even after Chris Bosh had announced he was leaving Toronto to sign with Miami. Instead, James delivered a nationally televised jaw-dropper and set the precedent for superstars helping create superteams when he joined Bosh and Dwyane Wade in Miami. The trio ended up winning two titles in four trips to the Finals.2014Previous Team: Miami HeatNew Team: Cleveland Cavaliers
The Blues fell behind immediately after Diego Costa’s equaliser 1 Antonio Conte singled out Aaron Ramsey’s quick-fire goal as the key reason for his side’s FA Cup final loss to Arsenal.The Blues fell behind to a controversial early Alexis Sanchez goal before Victor Moses was dismissed for a second bookable offence after diving in the penalty area.But despite Diego Costa scoring an equaliser with a quarter of an hour remaining, Chelsea immediately fell behind again, as Ramsey restored the Gunners’ lead.And Conte felt his side’s failure to keep the scores level for a longer period was too difficult to recover from with only 10 men. “I think our start for sure wasn’t good enough,” he said.“Arsenal started the game better than us, honestly I think the goal after three minutes in this way, I think it was not disallowed because there is a clear handball but our start wasn’t good.“Then we started to play, in the second half we started very well and created the chances to equalise.“The second yellow card for Moses was for sure one of the two key moments.“But to play for 10 men, we were able to equalise and then to concede a second goal was a key moment for the loss.”The former Juventus coach also refuted claims his players struggled to raise themselves for the final having already secured the Premier League title.“It is not easy but I think that we won the league and it was right to celebrate and enjoy this win,” he added.“I think that my players put all of themselves into the game, maybe our start wasn’t good and the impact and approach wasn’t good and Arsenal pushed a lot. We paid for this start.”“Per Mertesacker for me is a perfect example for any young professional football player.“What he did today was just a consequence of an unbelievable attitude every day, even if not selected, until the Everton game in the squad.“He played his first game tonight and when he was not selected he worked even harder, which is why I pay a special tribute for him tonight.”
