This is your chance for fame and fortune. Pizza Hut is looking for a star for their Super Bowl ad. The Pizza giant is holding a contest, asking people to submit a video of their best, silliest or most creative "hut hut hut' - which is what the quarterback shouts out. The deadline to submit your video is Jan. 20. Complete rules are at the Pizza Hut Facebook page.
They are accused of breaking the rules and now some of the nation's biggest banks are reportedly preparing to pay up. Ten major banks and mortgage companies have agreed to pay $8.5 billion to settle complaints that they wrongfully foreclosed on homeowners who should have stayed in their homes. Federal regulators say the banks mishandled people's paperwork and skipped required steps in the foreclosure process. Under the settlement, people who were wrongfully foreclosed upon could get anywhere between a few hundred dollars and $125,000. The banks involved in the settlement include Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo.
If you are a frequent flier, you could soon be grounded or have fewer flights to choose from due to a pilot crunch. Thousands of pilots are retiring, as many of them reach the federally mandated retirement age of 65. In August, new rules will also kick in, requiring pilots to get extra training and more rest. Analysts say, if this shortage occurs, regional airlines could be left scrambling. Both Cleveland Hopkins International and the Akron/Canton Regional airport have a lot of regional jets flying in and out.
