What's in a number? If that number is your credit score, maybe less than you think. Regulators are cracking down and handing out big fines to two of the big three credit agencies. Regulators say the agenices misrepresented to consumers the usefulness of the scores which consumers used to evaluate their own credit standing.

Plus, the Cleveland Clinic performs groundbreaking surgery to help stroke patients.
