Odds are, BP gets new CEO
LONDON (AP) — Odds are, BP’s embattled chief executive Tony Hayward will be out of a job before the end of the year, an Irish bookmaker says.
The Paddy Power betting agency on Thursday quotes odds of 8-11 that Hayward won’t last the year running the oil company, and even odds that he survives.
The volume of betting against Hayward is three times as large as the bets that he stays, Paddy Power spokesman Darren Haines said.
Paddy Power is also taking bets on Hayward’s successor, with Iain Conn, BP’s chief executive of refining and marketing, leading the pack at 3-1.

Hairdresser buys plane ticket for homeless
HONOLULU (AP) — A Hawaii hairdresser is helping send a homeless man from Seattle back home to be with his ailing father. Denise Sakai answered a call from state Rep. John Mizuno for donations to send Gregory Reese to Washington state. Instead of just a partial donation, Sakai bought Reese a $299 ticket online for a flight Thursday to Seattle.
Sakai said she read about Reese in the paper and was touched that he just wanted to be with his dad.
Reese became homeless when two job offers here fell through. The 39-year-old said his father has lung cancer and cannot afford a ticket to bring him back.

Police: burglar wearing winter clothes caught
GLASGOW, Delaware (AP) — Authorities said a car burglar decked out in winter clothes was held at gunpoint by the resident he was stealing from in Glasgow. Officials said a woman told her husband after she saw a man wearing a black knit cap, winter gloves, a scarf and goggles breaking into their car. The husband armed himself with a gun and confronted the man.
Police spokesman Senior Cpl. Trinidad Navarro said the husband ordered the man to lie face down in the driveway until police arrived.
