  • Europe ready for Grexit contagion as Athens gets closer to Russian cash

    The European Central Bank has warned that a rupture of monetary union and Greek exit from the euro could have dramatic consequences, but insisted that it has enough powerful weapons to avert contagion. Mario Draghi, the ECB's president, said it would be far better for everybody if Greece recovers within EMU but made it clear that the currency bloc is no longer vulnerable to the immediate chain-reaction seen in earlier phases of the debt crisis. This sends an implicit message to the radical-Left Syriza government in Athens that it cannot hope to secure better terms from EMU creditors by threatening to unleash mayhem.

  • 10 Actors Who Were One Hit Wonders

    The phrase ‘one hit wonders’ is usually used in reference to the world of music, where an artist can capture lightning in a bottle and stumble upon an insanely catchy tune, release it to an adoring public, and then promptly disappear forever, having failed to replicate their impossible success. One hit wonders are a bit harder to come across in movies – if an actor is in a hit, you’ll find that doors seem to open automatically for them – but they are out there. It was the part of a lifetime, but for child actor Peter Ostrum, it was the only role he’d ever need.
