Brand said husband Doug was remodeling their house.

  • IMF warns of huge financial hole as Greek vote looms
    ATHENS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund delivered a stark warning on Thursday of the huge financial hole facing Greece as angry and uncertain voters prepare for a referendum that could decide their country's future in Europe. Days after Greece defaulted on part of its IMF debt, the Fund, part of the lenders' "troika" behind successive international bailouts, said Greece needed an extra 50 billion euros over the next three years, including 36 billion from its European partners, to stay afloat. It also needed significant debt relief.
  • Aetna nears deal to buy Humana for about $34 billion: sources
    One of the people said Aetna's offer would value Humana at about $230 per share and could be announced as early as Friday. The offer, if it goes through, would make it the largest deal in the insurance industry since Anthem Inc (ANTM.N) bought WellPoint in 2004 for $16.6 billion. Anthem last month said it is pursuing Cigna Corp (CI.N) despite that company's rejection of its offers.
  • Asia shares subdued as U.S. data disappoints, fret over Greece, China
    Asian stocks were little changed on Friday, with investors reluctant to stake out fresh positions after disappointing U.S. employment data and cautious ahead of Greece's weekend referendum which may decide its future in Europe. China's increasingly volatile markets may upstage Greek concerns in the session, after that country's securities market regulator said it had opened an investigation into suspected market manipulation after a slump of more than 20 percent in Chinese stocks since mid-June. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was slightly lower in early trading, on track for a 0.5 percent weekly loss, while Japan's Nikkei stock index (.N225) slipped 0.4 percent, poised to lose over 1 percent for the week.
