Ten years ago this month, a college football star felt a need for speed and paid the price. Nicknamed “Johnny Football,” Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel captured the imagination of fans across America during the 2012-13 season. Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, the highest honor in the sport. He beat a series of notable opponents, including Alabama and Oklahoma, but one thing that he could not beat was a speeding ticket. Not long after winning the Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas, Manziel was ticketed in another city near Dallas called Ennis. This was not his ..read more

In 2022, it is hard to imagine a world without planes. People have grown accustomed to landing in a distant country within a matter of hours, whether they are going to an industry conference or a resort holiday. Aircraft also form a vital part of national defense for the U.S. and many other countries. But the first flight occurred less than 120 years ago on a windy December morning in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. On December 14, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright mounted an engine on a 40-foot aircraft and attempted the first flight in the Kill Devil Hills, south of the town of Kitty Hawk ..read more

Losing a home to foreclosure might not seem like something that would happen to the rich and famous. But sometimes it does. In November 2009, Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage lost two homes in New Orleans to foreclosure. The homes were sold to the lender for about $4.5 million, somewhat less than the $5.5 million that Cage owed to the lender in unpaid mortgage debts. However, his financial problems went beyond mortgage debts. Cage told People magazine that he owed an eight-digit amount to the IRS in back taxes. In addition to relatively modest amounts owed for 2002 through 2004, he reportedly ..read more

Three years later on that date, an unknown soldier who had served in the First World War was buried in Arlington National Cemetery across the river from Washington, D.C. A Congressional resolution in 1926 designated November 11 as ..read more
