IF you watched the Singapore Grand Prix, you may have noticed a significant difference during the race. The usual lap counter has been replaced by a countdown clock instead. Heavy rainfall in Singapore saw the race delayed in the Grand Prix . The Safety Car was sent out onto the track to check the conditions soon after, with the rain easing after 50 minutes. It was later confirmed by the FIA that the pit lane would open at 1:25pm as the race was given the green light to go ahead. The formation lap was then confirmed for 2:05pm after the weather cleared. However, with 23 laps remaining in the race, the lap counter has now been replaced by a countdown clock with just under 40 minutes being shown as the time to finish the race .

I played Division I football as a cornerback at Clemson University. The players provide America with many things. We give fans memories and celebrations, we give them a time to escape the problems of America, and we give our audiences and white teammates the illusion that we are equal on and off the field. “I know from being in an NFL locker room for 20 years, regardless of race, background, money you grew up with, we were all brothers; it didn’t matter,” the Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre once told a reporter at USA Today . But although Favre may be happy to declare his kinship with Black people, I’ve never heard him mention the injustices we face daily. Rather, he has publicly criticized Black athletes for kneeling in protest during the national anthem.

Published 12 minutes ago comments Comments Share close Share page Copy link About sharing The pound has climbed after the chancellor reversed his controversial decision to scrap the top rate of tax. Sterling gained more than 1% to $1.1284 before falling back slightly while government borrowing costs edged lower. Tory MPs had threatened to vote against Kwasi Kwarteng's plan, saying it was unfair when living costs were so high.

The chancellor pledged to abolish the 45p rate of tax, which is paid by people who earn more than £150,000 a year. Getting rid of the rate would have cost the Treasury around £2bn of out £45bn … [Read more...] about Tax U-turn lifts pound as borrowing costs fall

CBS News' John Dickerson asked New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has become the chronicler-in-chief of the Donald Trump era, "How long has Donald Trump been in your head, or you in his?" "At least 11 years for this level of intensity," she replied. "And what's it like to have Donald Trump in your head, or be a part of his thinking, for 11 years?" "I had one of his old friends say to me, 'He doesn't wear well over time.' And I think that the collective we have experienced that at various points." Haberman has been covering Trump since the late 1990s, as a metro reporter for the New York tabloids. In 2016 alone she had 599 bylines or co-bylines in The Times – more than one a day – and that pace has slowed only slightly in the years since.

It never rains but only pours at Credit Suisse. Switzerland's second largest lender has stumbled from one crisis to another in recent years. There was the corporate spying scandal three years ago in which the bank was accused of hiring a private detective after one of its former executives had defected to a rival. Shortly afterwards, the bank lost $5.5bn from its exposure to the collapsed hedge fund manager Archegos Capital, while it also suffered losses related to the collapse of the supply chain finance group Greensill Capital. Other embarrassments included a string of fines for making fraudulent loans - nicknamed 'tuna bonds' - to the government of Mozambique between 2012 and 2016. After these various setbacks Credit Suisse appeared to have pulled off a considerable coup when, in April 2021, it hired Antonio Horta-Osorio , the highly regarded former chief executive of Lloyds Banking Group, to become its new chairman. Investors were delighted when he promised to … [Read more...] about Credit Suisse has stumbled from one crisis to another – but the panic is possibly overdone
