The U.S. Department of Agriculture will require the pork industry to report incidents of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, which has killed millions of young pigs last year, in order to contain the spread.

This year, Easter spending is expected to drop from $145 in 2013 to $137 for the average American consumer.

Walmart plans to allow customers to make store-to-store money transfers within the U.S.

And now, a public service announcement: Stay away from Chris, a rhea who escaped from a farm enclosure in north Hertfordshire, as the six-foot bird is capable of disemboweling a man. Chris has been seen near the Arthur Findlay College for Psychic Science and, more recently, in a rapeseed field.
