Q: I have been reading a lot lately about the EB-5 Investor Visa.  What is this? A: The EB-5 Visa program was created in 1990 by the US Congress to give foreign nationals a means to seek permanent residency by investing in the US economy.  The program has an annual quota of 10,000 visas per year for foreign nationals and their family members.  Of those, 5,000 visas are specifically reserved for investments made in regional centers.

CarMD(Courtesy of AP) Anyone who's had the ''check engine'' light come on suddenly knows how unnerving that can be. Maybe it's nothing more than a loose gas cap. Or maybe it's something that requires a mechanic, fast.

So CarMD, based in Fountain Valley, Calif., has created a hand-held diagnostic gadget that plugs into a car's computer to monitor sensors and safety systems, and lets you know just what might have caused that light to go on without an expensive trek to the shop. If problems are identified, tech support certified by the Automobile Service Excellence is at hand to help with next steps. ($119.85, www.carmd.com)
