More than 1,000 TSA employees are still awaiting payment after the government shutdown that left 800,000 federal employees furloughed or working without pay, CNN reports.

The bottom line: TSA provided partial paychecks to its employees during the shutdown, which could be the cause of this delay as the agency scrambles pay employees the accurate amount. TSA airport screener absences hit 10% 30 days into the shutdown, signaling the financial hardship on employees.

"It appears as though their effort to partially pay people screwed things up and they are still getting their act together."

Sports are back, and on the surface, the actual gameplay looks fairly similar to when we last saw them.

But beneath that facade of normalcy lie some interesting trends spurred on by fan-less environments, long layoffs and condensed schedules.

The Nasdaq closed above 11,000 for the first time on Thursday, ending the session higher for the seventh time in a row and eighth session in nine. It has gained nearly 10% since July 1.

Why it matters: It's not just tech stocks that have rallied recently. Just about every asset class has jumped in the third quarter, including many that typically have negative or inverse correlations to each other.
