Ferrari revs engine as it prepares to shift into IPO

Discover to pay for student loan practices. Because they mistreat you like you'd mistreat you. #MarginCall

Valuation will be tough as it's probably not a practical everyday investment but has appeal nonetheless — especially among wealthy men having a midlife crisis.

A federal regulator has ordered Discover to pay $18.5 million for illegal student loan servicing practices such as overstating required minimum payment amounts and phone dunning before 8 a.m. and after 9 p.m. Because Discover mistreats you the way you'd mistreat you.

Gov. Bruce Rauner is under fire from the National Council of Women's Organizations for his all-male Illinois Tollway board. Rauner did say he hoped to run Illinois the way businesses are run.

NBA star LeBron James and his production company have entered into a multimedia partnership with Warner Bros. This immediately set off speculation that he's an obvious choice to revisit a particular Warner movie. But does the world really need a new "Casablanca"?

If you're unhappy the Indiana Pacers will wear jerseys from the movie "Hoosiers" during some games next season, imagine LeBron and his Cleveland teammates taking the floor in "Space Jam" Tune Squad uniforms. Or would they be the Monstars?

Challenger Abraham Lincoln, 157 years ago Friday, wrote U.S. Sen. Stephen Douglas "to make an arrangement for you and myself to divide time and address the same audiences." The Lincoln-Douglas debates didn't derail Douglas' re-election but elevated Lincoln, who fared better against Douglas two years later for the presidency.
