SIREN -- PAUL KANE: At the House GOP retreat in Baltimore, "Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) delivered a stern message that the debt ceiling will eventually have to be raised to keep the government from defaulting. But he also promised that Republicans will 'use the leverage' they have to enact at least some of their spending-reduction goals. 'It's a leverage moment for Republicans,' Cantor said in an interview Friday. 'The president needs us. There are things we were elected to do. Let's accomplish those if the president needs us to clean up the old mess.'"

Drew Costley Updated 1:17 pm, Sunday, February 25, 2018 Now Playing: Did you know that these history-making African Americans have history in the Bay Area? Media: Drew Costley Oakland native Ryan Coogler, director of Marvel's "Black Panther," is breaking records and making history with his vision of the superhero king of the fictional land Wakanda.

Its opening weekend became the largest-ever opening in February and ranked among the top-15 global debuts for a film. It's nearly impossible to ignore Coogler's ties to the Bay Area in his work. Oakland is featured prominently as a setting in "Black Panther." And his directorial debut was "Fruitvale Station," about the 2009 fatal shooting of Oscar Grant by BART police officer Johannes … [Read more...] about 28 African Americans with ties to the Bay Area who made history

Senior homeowners sometimes need to tap the value of their house to pay sudden expenses. Most ways to access home equity involve taking on debt. But several financial institutions offer a new alternative to often pricy reverse mortgages or other home loans. EquityKey, a San Diego company that is a division of Belgium-based KBC Bank, will provide a cash advance on a house in exchange for the right to share in the home's future appreciation. Single property owners ages 65 to 85 can receive 10 to 15 percent of the value of their property in exchange for a 50 percent stake in the home's future value. Two homeowners can collect up to 30 percent of their home's value, but then EquityKey receives 100 percent of the property's appreciation. Clients keep their existing equity and don't take on debt. Here's how to decide if leveraging your home's future appreciation is right for you. Get to know the terms. EquityKey cofounder Jeff Nash gives an example of a house worth $1 million.
