Mark Hicks The Detroit News Published 10:04 PM EST Nov 14, 2018 A Sterling Heights family treated for carbon monoxide poisoning Wednesday was lucky to survive because their furnace was emitting a fatally high level of the gas, city officials said.

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling was awarded a comical penalty after kicking the ground in a 6-0 thrashing of Shakhtar Donetsk.

"I went to chip the ball and don't know what happened," said the England international. "I didn't feel contact. I scuffed the ball, apologies to the ref." Former Liverpool and Manchester City midfielder Steve McManaman called it a "comical mistake" while Henry Winter, the … [Read more...] about Should Sterling have owned up over bizarre penalty?
The payment process that offers the choice of accepting a charge in sterling or local currency when using a credit or debit card overseas has become invidious. It now seems to happen most times I pay with a card abroad, and the sterling option has always seemed to be a consistently poor deal. Had I pressed the wrong button when withdrawing euros from an ATM at Seville airport last month, it would have cost me – entirely unnecessarily – an additional £15 on a £134 transaction. This is how it happened. I arrived and needed some cash. I opted for €150 and I was presented with two choices.
