The White House is putting together plans in case of a recession, including a possible payroll tax cut. Economists in the administration are also looking at other tax breaks to keep the economy moving. Tax breaks would have to be approved by Congress. One White House official denied the reports Monday and the President has rejected the idea that the country could be headed for recession.       Jeffrey Epstein signed a will shortly before his death, according to reports. The New York Post says the wealthy financier put his signature on it just two days before he took his own life in a federal jail in Manhattan. The will, dated August 8th, describes assets of nearly 580-million-dollars including 56-million in cash.        The nation's biggest bank says President Trump's tariffs on Chinese imports will cost U.S. families a thousand dollars per year. JPMorgan Chase released an analysis Monday that found the tariffs already in place are costing families 400 dollars a year. The bank says new tariffs scheduled to take effect on September 1st and December 15th will add another 600 dollars in annual costs to American households.        Jury deliberations are back to square one in the trial of a man accused of involuntary manslaughter in Northern California warehouse fire. An Alameda County judge kicked three women off the jury deliberating the fate of Derek Almena yesterday without explanation. The new jurors are from a group of alternate jurors. Prosecutors say Almena failed to secure the right permits for the Ghost Ship Warehouse which went up in flames in 2016. Three dozen people died in the fire.       NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. says he's thankful after he and his family survived a plane crash last week. In a statement, Earnhardt said he's blessed that everyone on board, including his wife, daughter, two pilots and even his dog, walked away from the plane. The private jet bounced off the runway in East Tennessee after a hard landing and burst into flames.        It looks like it's splitsville for Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes. Page Six reports the celebrity couple has broken up after six years together. Pictures emerged over the weekend showing Foxx with another woman partying in Los Angeles.
