Experts say this year could be a banner one for Mormon crickets — 3-inch-long bugs named after the Mormon pioneers who moved West and learned firsthand the insect's devastating effect on forage and grain fields.The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal Plant Health Inspection Service reports "significantly higher Mormon cricket populations" on federal land in southwestern Idaho, agency spokeswoman Abbey Powell wrote in an email to The Associated Press.The bugs can start to be detrimental to rangeland and crops when they number about 8 per square yard, state officials said.Residents in the north-central Oregon town of Arlington started dealing with Mormon crickets in June, scrambling to protect gardens and farm crops and trying to keep the bugs from invading homes through open windows and doors.Police work with transportation officials to post warnings and, if necessary, sand roads fouled by cricket carcasses.

Airbnb plans to offer a rental service for mega-homes, mansions and penthouses that will be inspected to ensure they pass muster.Looking to appeal to well-heeled travelers, Airbnb has been segmenting its offerings much the way hotel chains do.The company has already started testing a tier called Airbnb Select, which requires hosts to maintain consistent standards for their lodgings.Just as you can walk into any hotel and expect a consistent set of towels, blankets and quality, Airbnb Select is designed to do the same.The Trump administration has blacklisted a small Chinese bank accused of illicit dealings with North Korea, escalating pressure to get Beijing to rein in its wayward ally.The announcement reflects growing U.S. frustration over China’s efforts to enforce international sanctions intended to starve North Korea of revenue for its nuclear and missile programs.The Environmental Protection Agency is not required to estimate the number of mining job losses that may be caused by air pollution regulations, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.“President Trump’s EPA will take the economic and job impacts of its proposed regulations into account ... regardless of the outcome of this particular case,” EPA spokeswoman Amy Graham said in a statement.Murray Energy and other companies argued the EPA should have to report on potential job losses caused by its policies.Murray Energy CEO Bob Murray has been critical of Obama administration environmental policies, saying they led to major job losses in the coal industry because power plants moved away from burning coal to generate electricity.A Murray Energy spokesman says the company plans to appeal.Prosecutors say the scheme has led to charges against rival tuna company Bumble Bee Foods.Stephen Hodge, a former StarKist Co. senior vice president, entered his plea in federal court in San Francisco on Wednesday.Federal prosecutors say Hodge and rival industry executives agreed to fix the prices of packaged seafood.The U.S. government began investigating price fixing of canned tuna between StarKist, Bumble Bee and Chicken of the Sea more than two years ago.Warren Buffett’s company is likely to become Bank of America’s largest investor soon because the bank received approval to boost its dividend.Berkshire has received $300 million a year in interest payments tied to the investment, but now that Bank of America plans to increase its annual dividend to 48 cents per share Berkshire would make more by converting the warrants to common stock and collecting the dividend.Buffett told his shareholders this year that he planned to trade Berkshire’s preferred stock for common shares once Bank of America raised its dividend over 44 cents.
