All eyes turn to Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Olympics this week as athletes compete to take the gold. But what happens to the city and sporting facilities that have been built for the event once everyone returns home? It's a question Scott Holladay, an assistant professor of economics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, has considered.

Nearly one out of every three Cleveland homes sold by banks after mortgage foreclosures end up condemned, abandoned, boarded up or demolished, and a unique “hazard-rate” analysis shows that the failure rate for these transactions is five times higher for larger investors and out-of-state buyers than for small investors, according to a new study by local housing and urban planning experts.

Last year, almost 900,000 low- and moderate-income tax filers participated in a unique tax preparation savings intervention program, depositing approximately $5.9 million more into savings accounts than they would have without the intervention.
