The interesting football transfer of Argentine superstars Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano to West Ham United has caused William Hill to open a book on when the pair will leave the club.

Luck Be A Lady

Valerie Ilson, 53, is lucky. The woman who works in a Long Island delicatessen, beat odds of one in 3.6 trillion – 3,669,120,000,000-1 – to win the New York State Lottery twice. Valerie, who has no intention of giving up her job, says, “I couldn’t believe it. This time I said, ‘God’s on my side’.” Valerie is now £536,000 richer. And that’s on top of her previous $1million win four 3 years ago.

Companies and home users need to protect themselves from the nuisance of junk mail, and boycott those businesses who are supporting it.” Here, here.
