The Bank of Japan has surprised markets with only minor tweaks to its giant stimulus planThe Bank of Japan surprised markets Friday with only minor tweaks to its giant stimulus plan that reignited concerns its monetary policy arsenal is almost empty. Tokyo's Nikkei 225 stock index dropped and the yen surged as the underwhelming changes burst hopes for a one-two punch to boost the sluggish economy -- after the government unveiled a huge spending package this week.

In this July 6, 2016 photo, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service personnel struggle with carrying an adult alligator gar to a transportation tank at the Private John Allen National Fish Hatchery in Tupelo, Miss. Alligator gar can weigh several hundred pounds and be over eight feet long. Several male and female adult alligator gar are captured in fresh water lakes and rivers and are brought to the facility so they can lay and fertilize the eggs as biologists and environmentalists are working to reintroduce the once-reviled alligator gar as a weapon against another huge species: invasive Asian carp. The gar are later returned to the wild. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)CHICAGO (AP) — It's a toothy giant that can grow longer than a horse and heavier than a refrigerator, a fearsome-looking prehistoric fish that plied U.S. waters from the Gulf of Mexico to Illinois until it disappeared from many states a half-century ago.
