  • We can't print drachmas, says Greece's finance minister

    With speculation swirling that Greece might be forced out of the euro and have to print its own money after a weekend referendum, its finance minister on Thursday said the country no longer had the presses to make drachmas. "We don't have the capacity," Yanis Varoufakis told Australian public radio network ABC. In 2000, the year before Greece joined the eurozone, "one of the things we had to do was get rid of all our printing presses" as part of the bloc's assertion that "this monetary union is irreversible," he said.

  • Djokovic, Serena turn up heat as Wimbledon sizzles

    With everyone "feeling hot, hot, hot" at the All England Club on Wednesday it was little wonder that Novak Djokovic, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams were eager to escape the Wimbledon furnace as quickly as possible. Spectators sitting under the searing sun on Wimbledon's Henman Hill were heard breaking out into the Buster Poindexter anthem that aptly summed up the hottest day of the year in Britain -- with the mercury hitting 93 degrees Fahrenheit. Champion Djokovic was spared the worst of the heat on the partly covered Centre Court as he kept things simple in a 90-minute 6-4 6-2 6-3 second-round demolition job that ended the Wimbledon career of seasoned Finn Jarkko Nieminen.

  • US job creation solid in June, but data shows weaknesses

    The US economy churned out a solid 223,000 net new jobs in June, the Labor Department said Thursday, but wages remained flat, underscoring continued weaknesses in the economy. In a decidedly mixed report on the jobs market, the department said the unemployment rate fell to 5.3 percent, the lowest level since April 2008. Data from the volatile household survey showed the labor force shrank by 432,000 people in the month, largely explaining the 0.2 percentage point fall in the jobless rate.

  • 6 best part-time jobs for retirees

    You’re not alone in your want — or need -- to work in retirement: 72% of adults age 50 and older say they want to keep working after they retire, and nearly half (47%) of current retirees say they either have worked or plan to work during retirement, according to a survey of more than 7,000 adults conducted by Merrill Lynch Bank of America Corp. released last year. Working in retirement isn’t just about the money (though, let’s be serious, most of us could use a little extra). The most popular reason for working in retirement is to “stay mentally active” for 62% of retirees and 51% of older adults cite it as one of the top reasons they are working in retirement, according to the Merrill Lynch Bank of America survey.
