  • Honeymoon is over for penniless Greek couple in NYC, begging after bank cards were declined

    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday. "Everything was all right — then 'boom!' in New York," Limnioti said.

  • Home value killers: Problems that could make your property near worthless

     A potential nightmare example emerged last week with an Antigonish, Nova Scotia house that saw its assessed value drop to $1 from $365,000 after the owners found Mi’kmaq artifacts on the property and reported them. If the goal was to reduce property taxes, it was shrewd. Real estate laws in Canada can be murky on this stuff, as sellers are only required to disclose material defects to the property, such as a crack in the foundation. And while nobody expects to find a burial site when they start digging out the basement, there are value killers you can watch out for.

  • Maple Leafs, Bruins have completely undone Kessel trade in six years

    When Brian Burke traded two first-round picks and a second-rounder to the Boston Bruins in September 2009 for Phil Kessel, he believed the Toronto Maple Leafs would make the playoffs in 2010 and 2011. When they didn't, the Bruins got the Leafs' No. 2 pick that became Tyler Seguin and the No. 9 pick the next year that became Dougie Hamilton. Fans at TD Garden in Boston would often chant, "Thank you, Kessel," for the deal that looked like it could be incredibly lopsided.

"If you see something that doesn't look quite right we always want that information," said Tanya Rushcall, aquatic invasive species technician with the Alberta government.

  • Free-agent roundup: Day 2 brings Wade resolution and Aldridge adjustments

    • The biggest news of the day found Miami Heat icon Dwyane Wade, a surprise free agent after opting out of his contract Monday, coming back to the club at one year for $20 million. This deal also allows the Heat to avoid the public relations nightmare of offering the best player in franchise history (adjusted for seasons played, at least) a relatively low salary while still keeping them in play to add free agent Kevin Durant next summer. If that's not enough, Yahoo's own Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Heat have worked their way into this summer's multi-team pursuit of power forward LaMarcus Aldridge.
