Disney is pulling all its shows and movies from Netflix in 2019. Instead, it will launch its own streaming service. Disney said it will launch an ESPN-branded streaming service in 2018. The Disney service will be the only place where U.S. viewers can watch new live action and animated movies from Disney and Pixar, including "Toy Story 4," the "Frozen" sequel and "The Lion King" live-action movie. It will also feature content from The Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD.

Back to school is underway and families are preparing for a flurry of spending. Capital One says more than one-third of families will spend more than $1,000 a child on school and after-school activity fees this academic year. School photos, meal programs and mandatory school fees were the biggest expenses for parents, according to the Capital One survey. Other expenses included yearbooks, school uniforms and fees for field trips.

The number of passengers bumped from U.S. airlines is at its lowest level in more than a decade. The U.S. Department of Transportation didn't provide reasoning for the drop in passenger bumping, but the timeframe covered by the latest report coincides with the time in which airlines revamped their policies on overbooking flights. Those changes were spurred by a very public incident in April when a United passenger was dragged from a flight after refusing to give up his seat.

There haven't never been this many job openings in America. The Labor Department says there were 6.2 million job openings in June. On the downside, employers increasingly say they can't find skilled and available workers to fill their open positions.
