In today's news: Banks are joining forces to make it easier to access your money, dark meat is getting popular, new cars get new labels, orders for durable goods weren't so durable last month, and Mark Haines dies.

BANKING: Banks offer cash transfers via cell number, email address

Imagine paying a bill with no cash, check, PayPal, or smartphone app. “Three of the nation’s four largest banks are launching a system that lets customers transfer money from their checking accounts using only a mobile number or e-mail address,” USA Today reports.

FOOD: Chicken producers are passing the dark meat

White meat or dark meat? For decades, Americans preferred white meat, which is lower fat but higher priced. Not anymore. “Chicken drumsticks are finding their way to American dinner tables as a slowdown in exports has kept more of the dark meat in U.S. grocery stores and warehouses,” MSNBC reports.

CARS: New-fangled auto fuel economy labels unveiled

When you buy your next new car, something will look a little different. “Potential car buyers will see new designs for fuel economy labels, reflecting the increased use of alternatives to gasoline such as electric and diesel,” CNN reports.

BUSINESS: Businesses cut orders for durable goods in April

Businesses invested less in big equipment last month than they had in the previous six months. “Businesses cut their orders for heavy machinery, computers, autos and airplanes in April,” USA Today reports. “The big drop in April came following a 4.4 percent increase in March.”

MEDIA: Veteran CNBC anchor Mark Haines dead at 65

You’ve probably seen Mark Haines, even if you don’t recall his name. A CNBC anchor for 22 years, Haines died Tuesday evening at age 65. “Haines may be best remembered for his calming and commanding presence during the 9/11 tragedy when he reacted unflappably to the furious stream of incoming rumor,” MSNBC reports.
