Travelers are no longer allowed to simply declare their citizenship to immigration officers at U.S/Canada border crossings. Those aged 19 and older must now show a passport, a "trusted traveler" card or a birth certificate along with government-issued identification, such as a driver's license. A driver's license isn't considered proof of citizenship but can document the bearer's identity in support of other proof. For resident aliens, an original "green card" constitutes proof of permanent U.S. residence and, together with photo ID, will suffice to re-enter the country.

““CEOs go to their vacation homes just after companies report favorable news, and CEOs return to headquarters right before subsequent news is released. More good news is released when CEOs are back at work, and CEOs appear not to leave headquarters at all if a firm has adverse news to disclose. When CEOs are away from the office, stock prices behave quietly with sharply lower volatility. Volatility increases immediately when CEOs return to work.” —David Yermack, a New York University finance professor, whose recently released study shows a correlation between when CEOs take their private jets on vacation and movements in their companies’ stock price ”
