NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks were slightly higher Thursday, helped by comments from European Central Bank policymakers, who said they were willing to provide more stimulus to the region's economy, if needed.

On a rainy Saturday in June of 1990, 120,000 rock fans descended onto a field in Knebworth, England, to witness one of the biggest charity shows of all time. It’s not nearly as well-known these days as Live Aid, Live 8, the Concert for New York City or the Concert for Bangladesh, but the lineup — which included Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Genesis, Dire Straits and Robert Plant with surprise guest Jimmy Page — speaks for itself.
Pink Floyd had been off the road for nearly a year when the show came around and they almost never gigged between tours, but the Knebworth organizers called back many of the biggest names to have played the site in the past and they simply couldn’t say no. Roger Waters hadn’t performed with Floyd in nine years at this point, and at this exact moment was prepping for his enormous Wall show in Berlin the following month. Those hoping for a reunion would have to wait another 15 years for Live 8, but Floyd had spent the last few years proving they were a stadium-caliber act even without their former leader.
The rain was off-and-on throughout the day, and by the time Floyd took the stage at the end of the night it was coming down pretty hard. They played a seven-song set centered around their 1970s hits, with “Sorrow” being the sole selection from their newest album A Momentary Lapse of Reason, and wrapped up with “Run Like Hell.” You can see video of that right here. That’s bassist Guy Pratt handling the Waters vocal parts, with Jon Carin on keyboards. Both of them will be playing with Gilmour when his Rattle That Lock tour begins this weekend in England.
The tour won’t hit America until next year, and it’s about as close to the Pink Floyd experience as Gilmour is willing to offer. “I’ve enjoyed that part of my life; that life has given me so much,” he told Rolling Stone in August. “There’s been a lot of joy, a lot of laughter, a lot of creative satisfaction. We’ve had a lot of good companionship for 95 percent of our time together. I wouldn’t want that five percent that was a little more sour to make my view of it less enjoyable. All things must pass. All things must come to an end. I don’t want to go back there. I’ve done it.”
Kelly Rutherford‘s love for her kids couldn’t be stronger!
On Thursday, just hours before Kel attends a MAJOR custody hearing in Monaco, she posted a few adorable snaps commemorating her two children on Instagram. So precious AND heartbreaking!
The intimate pics highlight just how important the September 3 hearing is for the actress — today a judge will decide whether or not Hermes and Helena will be sent back to America. Rutherford’s legal team is banking on her excellent mothering kills and the fact that the kids were born in the United States.
Unfortunately, the Gossip Girl star’s ex, Daniel Girsch, claims it’s in the best interest of the kids to live with him in Monaco. Tensions between the ex couple heated up when the momma refused to return her babies to the country after an extended NYC visit that ended in July.
Hopefully these sweet pics are a good luck charm for Kelly today — check out the bittersweet cuteness (below)!

A US district judge ordered Kim Davis to remain in jail until she complied with his order to issue licenses regardless of her religious beliefs
A county clerk in Kentucky who has refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples based on her religious beliefs has been held in contempt of court and ordered to jail.
US District Judge David Bunning told Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis she would be jailed until she complied with his order to issue the licenses. Davis said “thank you” before she was led out of the courtroom by a US marshal. She was not in handcuffs.

6S Marketing, an ad agency located in New York, is hoping to persuade Apple to change the name of its upcoming iOS device, the iPhone 6s, to the iPhone 7. The company has written an open letter addressed to Apple and rented several billboards, one in Times Square, reading “Dear Universe, Please call it the iPhone 7. Sincerely, 6S Marketing.”
6S Marketing has also tagged its billboards with a campaign hashtag, #WeAre6S, which it says it uses to “highlight our unique and fun company culture.”
In the letter posted on its website, 6S Marketing goes on to say the company has heard rumors the next-generation iPhone will be called the iPhone 6s, and urges Apple to “reconsider” before detailing the company’s long history.
See, our company name is 6S Marketing, but our clients, friends, and colleagues simply refer to us as good ol’ “6S.” It’s a small name but a big part of our identity — one we’ve been using since 2000, when we started this company in my tiny apartment. At that time, we didn’t think that one of the biggest, and most well-respected, companies would use it to name a mobile device. (We were still using Motorola flip phones at the time, after all.)
The reason we chose the name “6S” is that it sound like “success” (get it?).
As we’re now less than a week away from the unveiling of the next-generation iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, there would be no time for Apple to change its own marketing materials and packaging even should it choose to consider 6S Marketing’s plea, a fact the company likely knows, making this more of a publicity stunt than a genuine request.
Apple’s iPhone naming scheme has been the same for multiple years in a row, having kicked off with the iPhone 3GS. 6S Marketing’s publication of its letter at this late date in Apple’s development cycle suggests the company is simply hoping to garner some attention ahead of the September 9 introduction of the next-generation iPhone.
6S Marketing ends its open letter with the following: “Hopefully, this message will reach you in time and you’ll reconsider leaving “6S” to the originals — we’ve been rocking it since the millennium, after all.”

Adebayor was widely expected to leave the club on transfer deadline day—making a switch to London rivals West Ham United—but the move didn’t materialise, leaving the player out in the cold, per Lang.
West Ham chairman David Gold said the Togolese player priced himself out of a switch from White Hart Lane after demanding a £5 million pay-off from Spurs.
The club had offered him a settlement to allow him to join the Hammers, as reported by Darren Lewis of the Mirror: “Slaven [Bilic] showed interest [in Adebayor]—we showed a bit of interest—and then it sort of all went quiet and Slaven obviously decided against it.”
The 31-year-old player made just 13 appearances for his club in the Premier League last term, scoring only twice, per Squawka.com.
The Telegraph’s Paul Hayward questioned Adebayor’s motives as a professional, with the player now forced to watch from the stands:
Adebayor is a player who should be in his prime, scoring goals for a Premier League club at the highest level. However, it seems he is washed up at a relatively young age and may have to drop out of Europe’s top divisions to find football in the future.
Spurs are short on strikers, and despite this, they have opted to ignore the player; this tells us all we need to know about Pochettino’s belief in the player’s current talents.
Fourstar Clothing has released a signature collection with legendary skateboarder and artist Mark Gonzales.

The remaining items that make up the collection include a pullover hoodie, utility coat, trousers, socks, scarves, and a crewneck sweater. An illustration depicting Gonzales’ likeness is implanted on the latter three pieces. Additionally, a short clip accompanies the release, which shows Gonzales hippie jumping a construction sign.
