  • NY-D-Day-Artifacts-Auction

    This photo provided by collector Rodney Hilton Brown shows a tattered 48-star American flag that flew aboard the U.S.-built LST 493 on D-Day that is being auctioned by Bonhams in New York on Thursday, June 5, 2014. The flag is among the hundreds of D-Day and other World War II artifacts being auctioned a day before the 70th anniversary of the history-changing invasion. The auction also features rare print-outs of the original series of hourly Dow Jones news bulletins with some of the first reports of the fighting on France’s north coast on June 6, 1944.

  • Brazil-Wcup-Busting-Budgets

    Coconuts are on display for sale at a kiosk on the Barra de Tijuca beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Tuesday, June 3, 2014. It’s not just the hotels and flights that will break wallets. It’s the $10 caipirinhas, the $17 cheeseburgers or that $35 pepperoni pizza. If you hit the beach in Rio de Janeiro, you’ll likely sip on a $3 coconut and on the way back to your overpriced hotel, you’ll ride in public transportation that’s more costly than London.
