A Modesto, California high school business administration teacher left his wife and four kids to move in with a former student when she turned eighteen.  The girl’s family was stunned.  Until now, she had never shown the slightest interest in business.

Lakers star Kobe Bryant was diagnosed with a concussion after a hard foul he suffered during the NBA All-Star Game.  But doctors couldn’t tell whether he received the injury from Dwayne Wade or from enforcers from Tiffany when he missed that payment on his latest apology ring.
