When you listen to the moody, soft-rock songs that singer-songwriter Stephen Mercer performs with his band, the aptly named Mercer, a musical decade comes to mind--the '70s. Tunes such as the anthem-like "Cynthia" or the atmospheric "One More Time," both included in "Girl," the band's independently released debut album, are so reminiscent of '70s artists such as Rod Stewart and Peter Frampton that it's hard to believe they were written and recorded in the last couple of years.

A growing number of Americans are being taken in by misleading offers of "guaranteed" returns on viatical settlements--a risky investment product that needs to be more tightly regulated, lawmakers were told Tuesday. Viatical investments are life insurance policies sold to investors for a fraction of the death benefit. For example, a $100,000 policy may be sold for $70,000 to an investor, who can cash in the policy for its full value, less expenses, when the policyholder dies.
