Frank Witsil Detroit Free Press Published 12:53 PM EDT Oct 14, 2018 The morbid discovery of 11 babies' corpses in the ceiling of a former funeral home in Detroit, and the investigation into who hid them — and why — follows other incidents over the years that have stoked dark fears about the mortuary business across the country. On Friday, the badly decomposed bodies of 11 infants were found in the ceiling of former Cantrell Funeral Home on Detroit's east side, police said. State investigators had received an anonymous letter explaining how to find the bodies. Detroit police Lt. Brian Bowser was unable to say how long the remains had been stored there or how old they were. But he said he was upset "by the callousness" of whoever had placed the remains of infants, some of them apparently stillborn, inside a cardboard box hidden in the drop-down ceiling of a stairwell.

The most Boris Johnson thing ever: Is booking a professional photographer to capture the moment you quit the Cabinet, just in time for the Telegraph splash. DRIVING THE DAY HOW IS IT ONLY TUESDAY? Theresa May’s new-look Cabinet meets in Downing Street this morning as questions swirl about her future as prime minister. No. 10 last night concluded a rapid-fire reshuffle, confirming the incendiary briefing to Playbook last week that a “full reshuffle plan” had been drawn up for the Chequers summit was no empty threat. Jeremy Hunt takes his place in one of the great offices of state (and is one step closer to No. 10); Matt Hancock and Dominic Raab have the big jobs they lusted after, and for some reason Jeremy Wright is now culture secretary. But the relative slickness of the Downing Street operation last night … [Read more...] about POLITICO London Playbook, presented by Airbus: New-look Cabinet meets — Merkel in town — Judge dread in D.C.

2 July 2018 EconomicsFinance It’s 10 years since the global financial system almost sent the world into a great depression. Yohann Koshy takes stock of what went wrong and where we are now This moment – a decade since the global financial crisis – is an ellipsis. We are between destinations, with no reliable map and uncertain co-ordinates. In September 2008 the fourth-largest US investment bank, Lehman Brothers, founded in 1850, filed for bankruptcy. It looked as if the global financial order, even capitalism itself, was next. Mohamed El-Erian, CEO of PIMCO, a large US investment management firm, asked his wife to withdraw as much money as possible from the ATM in case the banks didn’t open.1 An anonymous hedge fund manager in New York fired off a short email to a journalist: ‘It feels a little like the end of the world.’2 The world almost did end. And everything stayed the same. Time was borrowed in the form of nationalizations, cash … [Read more...] about When the world almost ended
