A volunteer worker for a book sale in Arizona found $4,000 (almost P210,000) stashed in one of the items being sold. Cathy McAllister said that while she was preparing for the annual VNSA book sale, she came across a donated book titled "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire." This was reported by KPNX 12 News on Monday. When she was about to throw the book away, she decided to take a closer look. "I fanned the book and someone had taken an X-Acto knife and cut a big hole in the middle of the book," McAllister said. McAllister could not believe her eyes when she found the money stashed in the book. At first, she even thought the cash was from the board game Monopoly. "...

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 17:04
Local police in the United Kingdom thought they would fish out evidence of a horrible crime from a canal, but it turned out to be something unexpected.

Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki share eventful history as honorary All-Stars

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 16:41
DALLAS --- Of all the opposing jerseys Dwyane Wade has collected through swaps during his final NBA season, Dirk Nowitzki's was among those the Miami star wanted the most and somehow seemed worried he wouldn't get.

The two-time Finals foes are elder statesmen in their league now, a co-existence better defined by sharing hono...
