iPhone Reportedly Catches Fire in NJ Student's Pocket in Class

WPVI-TV(MT. LAUREL, N.J.) -- After multiple accounts of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones exploding, a report about an iPhone allegedly catching fire could cause concern.

According to Darin Hlavaty, his iPhone 6 Plus exploded in his pocket recently during class at Rowan College at Burlington County. He told ABC News affiliate WPVI-TV his phone started smoking in his pocket and started a fire.

"I felt this crazy, hot burning in my leg," Hlavaty told WPVI-TV.

Rebecca Bookbinder, a student in Hlavaty's class who sat nearby, said to WPVI-TV: "Out of nowhere, we heard a fizzing and a popping sound. Suddenly a great mass of smoke comes out from his pocket."

"It was super hot so I flinched, grabbed it, threw it on the ground. Had to kick it because it was on fire," Hlavaty told WPVI-TV.

When public safety arrived to the classroom, the fire had already been put out, a college spokesperson said according to WPVI-TV. Officials moved the students to a different classroom for the remainder of the period.

Hlavaty, who bought the iPhone six months ago, admitted his phone had a crack in it, but he said to WPVI-TV he didn't think it would cause the phone to blow up. He also added that the phone battery was dead and not plugged in.

Apple said they could not comment at this time, according to WPVI-TV, but the company would investigate the report.

The news comes after Samsung recalled its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones over reports of explosions and fires from its batteries.

Two Stolen Van Gogh Paintings Recovered After Heist 14 Years Ago

Van Gogh Museum(AMSTERDAM) -- Two long lost Van Gogh paintings were found this week in the hands of the Italian mafia.

The works of art, Seascape at Scheveningen (1882) and Congregation leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen (1884/85), were stolen from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam about 14 years ago in a raid.

The paintings were found wrapped in cloth in a safe when Italian police investigated the Italian village of Castellammare di Stabia, near Naples, as part of a larger investigation of one of the Camorra organization's branches-- the Amato-Pagano clan, according to BBC.

In a press conference Friday, the museum announced the two pieces were "in fairly good condition," with missing frames and some signs of damage.

The museum said the Guardia di Finanza team, a specialized team in investigating organized crime and commissioned by the Italian Public Prosecutions Department, located the stolen paintings in a "massive, continuing investigation."

"The paintings have been found!" Van Gogh Museum Director Axel Rüger commented. "That I would be able to ever pronounce these words is something I had no longer dared to hope for. It is not yet certain when the works will come back to Amsterdam. But I fully believe that we can, once more, count on the unconditional support of the Italian authorities."

Further examination by a researcher would determine the exact condition of the works of art, the museum said.

US Stocks Close Higher as Deutsche Bank Reportedly Close to Settlement

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- A new report pushed Deutsche Bank fears aside and helped Wall Street close higher Friday.

The Dow climbed 164.70 (+0.91 percent) to finish at 18,308.15.

The Nasdaq jumped 42.85 (+0.81 percent) to close at 5,312.00, while the S&P 500 finished at 2,168.27, up 17.14 (+0.80 percent) from its open.

Crude oil gained less than 1 percent with prices hitting $48 a barrel

Deutsche Bank: Any uneasiness about Deutsche Bank was pushed aside after French news agency AFP reported that the German bank was close to a $5.4 billion settlement. The reported settlement is less than half of the original $14 billion fine from the U.S. Department of Justice for mis-sold mortgage bonds before the financial crisis. The report helped Deutsche Bank shares soar 14 percent Friday.

Consumer Spending: According to the Department of Commerce, consumer spending in August was unchanged compared to a month earlier because of a "decrease in spending for durable goods." Personal income rose slightly last month with a 0.2 percent increase.

Angry Frenchman Goes on Smashing Rampage in Apple Store

Kekes via Storyful(DIJON, France.) -- A man apparently upset about customer service he had received used a metal ball to smash several iPhones and a laptop at an Apple store in Dijon, France.

In a video that has been widely shared on social media, the unidentified man smashes several phones before addressing other customers at the store.

"Ladies and gentlemen, remember the rights of the consumer," the man says in French.

"They are refusing to reimburse me according to European consumer laws. I warned them. I said, 'Reimburse me my money,' and they said no. What happens then?" the man said, then smashed a phone. "That’s what happens," he continued.

Later, someone is heard telling him, "That's enough," and he replies with an expletive phrase.

French news site RTL reported that the man was detained by police, and that the damage was estimated to be 50,000 euro (about $56,000).

Apple declined to comment.

American Airlines Experiencing New Uniform Complaints Amid Merger

American Airlines(DALLAS) -- American Airlines flight attendants are complaining about their new uniforms on the same weekend the company is taking an important step in its merger with US Airways to create the world's largest airline.

Attendants claim the newly unveiled wool-rich uniforms are causing itching and headaches.
 
The Chicago Business Journal reports more than 400 flight attendants have complained of hives and headaches to their unions.

Airplanes and pilots for US Airways are being moved to a single scheduling operating system used by American Airlines this weekend, one of the slowest flying times of the year. The Los Angeles Times reports the carrier canceled numerous flights Saturday to reduce the risk of passengers being affected by a catastrophe.

Until now, the company used several systems: one for legacy American Airlines pilots, and two others for legacy US Airways pilots.

The move comes within the same week the complaints about uniforms were filed.

American Airlines told ABC News affiliate WFAA-TV that the complaints could stem from attendants experiencing a wool allergy, claiming the issues may be isolated.

"They have the option to have a 100 percent cotton uniform or polyester," Fernand Fernandez, vice president of global marketing for American, told WFAA. "They look exactly the same, just different materials."

The company says the materials were rigorously tested before the pieces were mass-produced. Previous uniforms were made from synthetic materials.

Fernandez says just 15 flight attendants have contacted them directly about the issue.

American Airlines merged with US Airways in 2013 to create the world's largest airline.

The carrier's merger is not yet complete. It still has to merge the scheduling system for flight attendants while working through complaints filed about their new uniforms.

Deutsche Bank Share Prices Swing over Fears of Financial Health

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Shares of Deutsche Bank have been trading near record-low levels this week, as the bank’s CEO is attempting to reassure his employees and the public that one of the world’s biggest banks is financially sound.

The stock has been on a largely downward trend ever since reports surfaced in mid-September that the U.S. Justice Department was seeking $14 billion from the bank to settle a case stemming from the 2008 financial crisis.

The bank said at the time that it would not pay the $14 billion tab.

A report Friday from Agence France Presse citing an unnamed source said that the bank and the Justice Department were nearing a settlement for $5.4 billion. That sent the stock soaring. The Justice Department declined to comment.

The stock’s recent decline was given new impetus in recent days after other media reports that hedge funds were pulling out of the bank.

In a message to employees Friday, Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan said the reports about the hedge funds were "causing unjustified concerns."

"I understand if you feel concerned by the extensive coverage on this issue. Our bank has become subject to speculation. Ongoing rumours are causing significant swings in our stock price," Cryan said.

The CEO added, "It is our task now to prevent distorted perception from further interrupting our daily business. Trust is the foundation of banking."

Round Two: Wells Fargo CEO Testifies in Front of Congress for Second Time

Xinhua/Bao Dandan via Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — (WASHINGTON) -- Just over a week after facing blistering questions in front of a Senate panel, Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf went back to Capitol Hill on Thursday, where he received verbal lashings and further calls to resign from members of the House Financial Services Committee over the unauthorized accounts scandal that is engulfing his company.

For over four hours, Democratic and Republican members of the committee lambasted the bank boss with heated exchanges that echoed the Senate hearing.

Stumpf has spent the last several weeks defending Wells Fargo after the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and other regulators fined the bank a combined $185 million earlier this month, with the CFPB saying that "employees opened more than two million deposit and credit card accounts that may not have been authorized by consumers."

The bipartisan derision began early, with the committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, telling Stumpf during his opening remarks: “Fraud is fraud. Theft is theft. And what happened at Wells Fargo over the course of many years cannot be described any other way.”

His Democratic counterpart, Ranking Member Maxine Waters, D-Calif., called the misconduct "some of the most egregious fraud we have seen since the foreclosure crisis."

Stumpf, who again faced calls today to resign, opened by saying that he was "deeply sorry that we failed to fulfill our responsibility to our customers, to our team members, and to the American public."

He also announced that the company would be ending its controversial product sales goals program on Oct. 1. Shortly after the scandal erupted, the company had said that the sales goals program would be ended effective Jan. 1, 2017.

At times, tempers flared during Thursday’s hearing.

Seemingly incensed that Stumpf was still in charge at the bank, Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y, said, "If the buck stops with you, as you came out here and said ... and you have to also admit that criminal activity was going on in your bank, then you should be fired because it stops with you."

Stumpf responded by saying that the bank's board has the power to remove him.

Meeks replied, "Who is paying for it? Who's taking responsibility for it? Don't come tell me you’re sorry," and then slapped the microphone.

One representative said that he wouldn't call for the CEO's resignation, because Stumpf was "in denial," and therefore he didn't "think it would do any good."

Earlier this week, Wells Fargo's board announced that Stumpf's salary would be suspended and that he would forgo some $41 million worth of promised compensations as well as a yearly bonus as an investigation is launched.

Despite the board's move ahead of today's hearing, it did not seem to satisfy those on the panel.

Waters said that the board's announcement was "welcomed, but let me be clear, it's not enough."

In other instances, snark took the place of anger.

“Mr. Stumpf, welcome to Washington," Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., said wryly, before noting that those assembled were "now engaged in an important national ritual where the CEO comes before the representatives of the American people to apologize, to take full responsibility, to do so humbly."

Sherman, who said that large banks were "too big to manage, too big to regulate," and therefore should be broken up, raised the issue of the 5,300 employees who were fired in relation to the accounts scandal.

"You took 5,300 good Americans and turned them into felons with a system that you created, benefited from and drove your stock price up," Sherman said.

His concerns about the employees were shared by Rep. Scott Garrett, R-N.J., who said, "I would not be surprised if a number of those people ended up losing their homes, going into massive debt after they were dismissed."

"We have a problem in this country where it would seem, as we've seen previously, that the well connected ... the elite, if you will, in Washington and on Wall Street seem to play by a different set of rules while everyone else has to play by another," Garrett added.

For his part, Stumpf argued that the bank did not benefit from the unauthorized accounts.

"It cost us $10 million to open those accounts and close them; forget even the cost of the team member and the dismissal. This is a loser for us, it only helps when a customer uses it," he said.

Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wisc., snapped back: "It's a loser for you, I guarantee that."

Duffy also asked if employees had "stolen" from customers, and Stumpf admitted, "In some cases, they did."

However, the bipartisan scorn was largely limited to Stumpf.

Republicans broke with their Democratic colleagues to heap some criticism on the CFPB.

"The financial regulators apparently were -- more than apparently completely asleep at the wheel as this massive fraud was occurring," Garrett said. "CFPB has only one job in a regulatory framework and they completely blew it."

The CFPB defended its work in response to Garrett's criticism, noting that "there were different pieces of this case and it took time to untangle conflicting accounts."

"It takes some time to bring various issues into focus as we conduct investigations, and develop more information about the underlying facts," agency spokesman David Mayorga said in a statement to ABC News today. "We are proud of our work together with the [Treasury Department's Office of the Comptroller of Currency] and the Los Angeles City Attorney to achieve nationwide relief for consumers harmed by Wells Fargo."

Wells Fargo stock was trading down about 1.7 percent at the end of today's hearing. Since the day before regulators made their allegations, Wells Fargo's stock has fallen about 11 percent, according to Reuters, and is at its lowest point since early 2014.

Jobless Claims Climb to 254K

iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — Jobless claims climbed higher last week, increasing by 3,000, according to the latest figures released Thursday by the Labor Department.

For the week ending Sept. 24, the number of people filing for benefits fell from a revised level of 251,000 the previous week to 254,000, marking the 82nd consecutive week initial jobless claims came in below 300,000. It’s the longest streak since 1970, the Labor Department says.

The Labor Department said there were no "special factors" impacting that week's figures.

The four-week moving average, however, decreased by 2,250 to 256,250.
