More than 50 years after the orca known as Lolita was captured for public display, plans are in place to return her from the Miami Seaquarium to her home waters in the Pacific Northwest — where a nearly century-old, endangered whale believed to be her mother still swims. An unlikely coalition involving the theme park’s owner, an animal rights group and an NFL owner-philanthropist announced the agreement during a news conference Thursday. Moving the 57-year-old, 5,000-pound orca could take six to nine months and cost $12 million to $15 million. Jim Irsay is the owner of the Indianapolis Colts. He said he's excited to be a part of Lolita's journey.
Shares in Europe and Asia have followed Wall Street higher ahead of a United States inflation update that traders hope might prompt the Federal Reserve to ease plans for more interest rate hikes.

The European Union's statistics agency reported that inflation in the 20 countries that use the euro slowed to 6.9% in March from 8.5% the month before. Traders hope a measure of U.S. inflation that is closely watched by the Federal Reserve also will show upward pressure on prices easing. That might prompt the Fed to postpone plans for a possible rate hike at its May meeting.
