  • Honeymoon is over for Greek couple who went penniless in NYC

    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. In Greece, they generally pay in cash, which is preferred by businesses, but they were told to have cards for the U.S.

  • Emilia Clarke conquers the big screen with a 'Terminator'

    To the casual observer, Emilia Clarke might look like one of the lucky ones: The young British actress was seemingly plucked out of the ether to star as Daenerys Targaryen on HBO's wildly popular "Game of Thrones." Just a few years later, she was chosen to make the leap to a summer blockbuster as Sarah Connor, one of action's most iconic heroines, in "Terminator Genisys," out Wednesday. The ebullient Clarke, who nearly jumped out of her seat to answer questions in a recent interview, is the first to stress that she's lucky to have reached these heights by age 28. Clarke has also said she wanted to act since she was 3 years old, although that makes her laugh now.

  • The case for Greece: when it forgave Germany's debt

    The International Monetary Fund certainly thinks so, according to a new report in which it argues Greece should get help. After the hell of World War II, the Federal Republic of Germany — commonly known as West Germany — got massive help with its debt from former foes. The 1953 agreement, in which Greece and about 20 other countries effectively wrote off a large chunk of Germany's loans and restructured the rest, is a landmark case that shows how effective debt relief can be.

With James Milner already brought in to replace Gerrard and Jordan Henderson, Joe Allen, Emre Can and Lucas Leiva also competing for midfield berths, will Rodgers really splash the cash again?
