Saudi riyal falls, bond may be delayed after U.S. Congress vote
Yahoo News - 5 months
By Andrew Torchia and Tom Arnold DUBAI (Reuters) - The Saudi riyal fell against the U.S. dollar in the forward foreign exchange market on Thursday after the U.S. Congress voted to allow relatives of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to sue Saudi Arabia. Any legal action could take years to wind through the U.S. court system, and analysts said there might be little if any impact on the Saudi economy or state finances. Saudi Arabia has been preparing to make its first international issue of sovereign bonds next month to raise $10 billion or more, but some Gulf bankers said the issue might now be delayed to give investors time to digest the news.

The Most Iconic Bar in Every State (and DC)
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
By: Lee Breslouer The first known use of the word iconic comes from 1656, and, though most of these bars haven't been around quite that long, some come damn close. Our rules for choosing an iconic bar were simple: it has to have been around since at least 1990, it has to be famous, and people need to still love going there. Sometimes this bar is a dive. Sometimes it's in a fancy hotel where former presidents have had a drink or two. But for whatever reason, these 51 bars have stood the test of time, broken bottles, and health inspections, and they keep bringing the crowds back in. So here are the most iconic bars in every state (and DC!). Cheers.

US Magazine - about 3 years
Tom Arnold has some very generous friends. Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show on Thursday, Jan. 30, the comedian revealed that he'd gotten a very selfless offer from pals Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard when he and his fourth wife, Ashley Groussman, were struggling to conceive a baby. "I have a very low sperm count," Arnold, 54, explained. "I found out in college, at the University of Iowa. I worked at the hospital school, and they said, 'Hey, you can donate blood or plasma,' which I always did for beer money. And then there was a sign that said, 'You can donate sperm for $35.' And I was like, 'Now I know what I'm doing with my life! I'll do that three times a day!' And they [tested] it, and they were like, 'Yeah, your sperm doesn't work.'" PHOTOS: 2013's babies of the year Arnold tried -- and failed -- to have a baby with each of his first three wives, Roseanne Barr, Julie Lynn Champnella, and Shelby Roos.
