READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? -- Los Angeles sports fans got some good news and bad news last week. The good news: AEG has partnered with the city to build a $314 million NFL stadium. The bad news: to afford a team, they'll have to hire replacement refs.
FUN IN THE SUN -- Donald Trump is on the hook to pay a $7.25 million judgement to investors he bilked on a Baja California resort scheme that went bust. The disgruntled plaintiffs should have known they were in trouble just from the project's title: "Trump's Cabo San Lucrative."
GOOD HUMOR MAN -- A sharp Manhattan entrepreneur charges high school students $1 a day to store the cell phones they're banned from bringing to school. There's an additional benefit, too. The radiation from a couple of thousand cell phones recharges his Chevy Volt.
NEW IN TOWN? -- We know unemployment is Spain is rampant, but a school in Valencia is now offering a course in prostitution plus a job on graduation. It sure turns well-practiced conventions upside down. For instance, last week a professor was arrested for NOT sleeping with one of his students.
