Florida man who used CARES Act PPP loan money to buy a Lamborghini pleads guilty

Don’t try and buy one of these with money stolen from the government.


So, it’s not a great idea to attempt to scam the government. It has a lot of resources and entire departments of smart and officious people who are dedicated solely to tracking you down and peeing in your Wheaties (figuratively speaking).

But charting the precise movements of those plates over all that time is challenging; existing models are often piecemeal, span only a few million years, or focus on just continental or oceanic changes, not both.

I had no money for groceries after Ric Ocasek died

Paulina Porizkova says she was so cash poor after her estranged husband Ric Ocasek died, she was forced to rely on friends to buy groceries.

The model, 55, made the startling revelation during a two-part conversation with Paula Polito, vice chairwoman of UBS Global Wealth Management. 

Porizkova had never signed a prenup with the Cars rocker in 1989, something which she now deeply regrets.
