The Divorce Professionals, a group of North Jersey businesspeople who have formed an association designed to function as a one-stop referral system for dissolving a marriage, is hosting a divorce expo on Tuesday. The group, which includes a real estate broker, a mortgage officer, a therapist, a financial adviser, a family therapist, a life coach, a private investigator and an insurance agent, was formed last year after some of the members saw a demand for professional guidance in navigating divorce.

During a trip to Camden, NJ, on Monday to announce new steps to improve effective policing, the President made a surprise announcement of new restrictions to the flow of some types of military equipment from the armed forces to police. Tracked armored vehicles, bayonets and grenade launchers are among the equipment that the federal government will no longer transfer to local law enforcement. Other equipment like tactical vehicles and riot gear will only be transferred if police provide assurances that it will be used responsibly. The White House had suggested last year that the program to provide military-style equipment would not change.

Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor trains will resume service Monday in “complete compliance” with federal safety orders following last week’s deadly derailment. Federal regulators on Saturday ordered Amtrak to expand use of a speed-control system long in effect for southbound trains near the crash site to northbound trains in the same area. The agency also ordered the company to examine all curves along the Northeast Corridor and determine if more can be done to improve safety, and to increase speed limit signs along the route. The NTSB investigation into the derailment, that killed nine, continues. The engineer says he doesn’t remember anything, and there are conflicting reports as to whether a rock or some other projectile was tossed at the engineer’s window just prior to the crash.
