    A New Jersey couple has uncovered wads of cash from the 1930s buried in the backyard of their home - leading them to uncover the shocking history behind the property, which was believed to be a former brothel. Suzanne and Rich Gilson were stunned when they unearthed a bunch of money - totaling around $1,000 - hidden underneath the grass while doing renovations on their yard recently. Arguably the most surprising part of the whole ordeal is that the bills were all printed in 1934 - which means they may have been there for more than 80 years.  The pair was intrigued by the mysterious discovery, which prompted them to want to find out more about how the money got there and why it was buried in the ground; And they were soon astounded to learn that their house, which is located in Wildwood and built in the 1920s, was actually a former prostitution house. According to NJ.com, the Gilsons bought the cottage four years ago. The couple recently decided that they wanted to remove some of the rocks from...

But the climate crisis is now straining those rights. There just isn't enough water in California to satisfy what's been allotted on paper.Latest on the climate crisisGreat Salt Lake is 'in trouble' as level falls to lowest on record for second year in a row Activists glue themselves to copy of Leonardo's 'The Last Supper,' adding to string of similar protests How the climate crisis is forever changing our national parks The Endangered Species Act was restored by a federal judge after Trump-era weakeningFor years, debate has raged in California about the best way to fix the water rights system for life in the modern era.

    Share this: New York will ban people from carrying firearms into many places of business unless the owners put up a sign saying guns are welcome, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday, describing a deal with state legislative leaders that is being finalized. Hochul said lawmakers have agreed on the broad strokes of a gun control bill that the Democratic-led Legislature is poised to pass Thursday. The legislation — hurriedly written after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the state’s handgun licensing law — will include provisions that make it harder to apply for a permit to carry a gun outside the home and create more rules around firearm storage in homes and vehicles.
    Investor confidence in China's real estate market appear to be boosted by the government's promise to support the sector and some loosening of policies. But analysts say China's high-growth property market may be a thing of the past.Getty Images | Getty Images News | Getty Images The tide may be turning on China's battered real estate market. Investor confidence in the sector appears to be improving, as bond trading volumes and prices rose in recent weeks, in part boosted by the government's promise to support the sector and some loosening of policies. But analysts say China's high-growth property market may be a thing of the past, set to be "changed forever" following the recent shakeup in the sector. S&P Global Ratings said in an early April report that China's policy crackdown on its residential housing market has "bottomed," but that it will take several quarters for markets to feel the effects of the regulatory easing. "When China's residential market emerges from this correction, it may be changed forever," S&P said. "We anticipate fewer developers will be able to employ the...
    FILM director Guy Ritchie has seen his pub burst into flames for the SECOND time in just six months in central London. Firefighters were called to the Lore of the Land boozer at around 11.20am today after a balcony became engulfed in flames. 1The fire broke out at the back of the property in LondonCredit: SWNS Crews managed to contain the blaze to the balcony, and put the fire out within 40 minutes – with footage showing plumes of black smoke coming from the back of the property. It is not thought to have been as serious as the fire which broke out in June last year and destroyed the entire roof of the property. That initial blaze, which is believed to have started in the kitchen, saw ten fire engines and around 70 firefighters arrive at the scene to tackle the fire. London Fire and Rescue Service confirmed they attended the latest fire but said further details would be released later today. Referring to the latest fire, one local resident said: "I heard some pops and thought it was...
    By Hanna Ziady | CNN Business It wasn’t long ago that real estate experts were bracing for the worst. The coronavirus pandemic had sent large parts of the world into lockdown, shuttering businesses, costing tens of millions of workers their jobs and putting the housing market into a deep freeze. The number of people asking lenders for more time on their mortgage payments surged as the global recession hit. “This time last year we thought it was going to be 2008 all over again,” said Kate Everett-Allen, the head of international residential research at real estate consultancy Knight Frank. The fear was that house prices would collapse, as they reliably had done in past economic downturns. An increase in bankruptcies and unemployment would squeeze disposable incomes and make it difficult for highly indebted homeowners to keep up with their mortgages. Those fortunate enough to own second homes would be forced to sell to build up cash reserves, putting even more downward pressure on prices. “Actually, none of that happened,” added Everett-Allen. Instead, house prices soared even as the world suffered...

The star opened up about a series of behind-the-scenes blunders in a tell-all chat about what life is really like behind the cameras of the Channel 4 show. 4Danni was left mortified when her dress blew off Revealing that presenters are supposed to wear the same outfit all week, she explained how wardrobe malfunctions can be catastrophic to an episode. Speaking to The Metro, she told of how on one instance, a wrap-around dress came completely undone and she had to be sewn into it for continuity.

    A PLACE in the Sun pair called out something VERY wrong with a swimming pool outside a plush villa. Tuesday's episode of the Channel 4 series saw presenter Danni Menzies meet Cath and her eldest daughter Kate in Costa Almeria in Spain. 5A Place in the Sun saw a pair have an issue with a pool at a plush villa Cath wanted a holiday home her family could enjoy, with three bedrooms, plenty of outdoor space for entertaining and access to a pool. However, the first property Danni showed them left the pair underwhelmed, thanks to a green iron fence that ran around the pool. Cath said: "I'm not too keen on the fence around the pool, it looks really pretty the area outside it, but instinctively it doesn't feel like the sort of area where you would have sun loungers all around and feel relaxed." Danni replied diplomatically: "The reason we've got a fence around the pool is it's a legal requirement if you are going to be renting out your property." 5The first property in Costa Almeria...

    Around 100 teenagers broke into a new $1.1million Arizona home to have a July 4 party, leaving a staggering $10,000 worth of damage in their wake.  The luxury property was trashed, with alcohol thrown up the walls, staging furniture destroyed and the hallway flooded when one culprit allegedly organized a keg party over Snapchat and swarms of young revellers descended on the place. Shocking footage shows the partygoers chucking back drinks and smoking inside the home in the highly aspirational area of North Peoria, after they smashed a window to make their way inside. Realtor Jim Conway slammed the 'entitled' partygoers who he caught dancing on the kitchen island and spraying beer over the walls of the for-sale house. 'It's aggravating. I mean, I wasn't scared, I was mad. I'm just sick of this entitlement. This is not their house,' Conway said.  Around 100 teenagers broke into a new $1.1million Arizona home to have a July 4 party, leaving a staggering $10,000 worth of damage in their wake (pictured)  The partygoers are seen outside the property in in the highly aspirational...
