"The Man Who Gave New York Its Greatest Candy Store Has Passed Away. Morris "Moishe" Cohen opened New York’s Economy Candy way back in 1937, toward the end of the Great Depression. He was only 19 at the time, and on Friday, he passed away at the age of 97. The family-owned Lower East Side store — now run by his grandson, Mitchell Cohen — has become one of New York’s all-time classics, selling thousands and thousands of gum balls, chocolate-covered marshmallows, candy Legos, halvah bars, and dried cherries."
"The impressive performance of Japan's ruling coalition government at parliamentary elections on Sunday is a reminder to Prime Minister Abe that his first and foremost priority remained the economy, not political reforms.
Abenomics, the set of radical economic policies designed to end Japan's deflation funk, has experienced a number of setbacks in its three-and-a-half-year existence, but the ruling coalition party still managed to secure 70 out of the 121 seats up for grabs in the upper house at Sunday's vote. That means the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and the New Komeito Party now have a majority in both houses of parliament."
