Thursday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Here’s a look at Thursday’s business headlines.

Indianapolis International Airport

The Indianapolis International Airport has been named the top airport by Conde Nast Travelers.

That’s five years in a row.

The airport hit a personal best in 2018, when they managed their highest traffic ever in the second quarter of the year. 

Amazon

Amazon has scrapped a secret A.I recruiting tool that showed bias against women.

That is because Amazon’s computer models were trained to vet applicants by observing patters in resumes.

Most came from men, a reflection of male dominance across the tech industry.

Amazon’s system taught itself that male candidates were preferable and penalized resumes that included the word “women” and it downgraded graduates of all-women’s colleges.

AT&T

AT&T will launch a Netflix rival.

The new service, anchored by HBO as the lead brand, will host all of Warner media’s other properties, including movie and TV franchises.

The move follows AT&T’s purchase of Time Warner earlier this year.

The service will launch in about a year.

Stock market

Rising interest rates have gone from just an annoyance to outright panic.

The dow dropped 831 points and closed below 26,000.

Tech stocks, like Amazon, led the rout, having their worst day since 2011.

Overnight global markets sold off and U.S. markets are pointing to a sharply lower open.

How to make Apple Pie Tacos

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s dessert … in a taco shell!

Apple Pie Tacos are easy, delicious, and kids love them! 

Apple Pie Tacos

9 soft street-taco shells (see note below)
2 tablespoons raw sugar 
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided 
5 ROCKIT® apples, skin left on and diced
2 tablespoon raw honey 
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
2 teaspoons cornstarch 
1/4 cup water, plus more
coconut whipped cream 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a plate, sprinkle raw sugar and cinnamon. Gently mix the two together. Spray both sides of the soft taco shells with nonstick cooking spray, then lightly dip both sides in the cinnamon mixture. 
2. Flip a muffin tin over. Place each cinnamon-coated soft taco shell between each of the muffin tins, so that the muffin-tin humps help the taco shell stay in place and formed. Place in the the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. 
3. To make apple filling, combine chopped apples, honey, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir cornstarch into the 1/4 cup water and add to the saucepan. Heat on medium for about 10 minutes until apples are completely softened and gooey-thick. You may need to add more water — about another 1/4 cup — as the apples cook to create a sauce-like mixture. 
4. Spoon the apple filling into each of the taco shells. Top with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle cinnamon, or a little granola.  Enjoy immediately!

Note: A tortilla that’s about 3-4 inches across works great. If you need to, you can take a larger wheat tortilla, and cookie-cut it using a 3-4 inch small bowl.
