    A MAN has won the right to be boring after being sacked for not going to work drinks. Known only as Mr T, the ex-director won thousands in compensation after being sacked by his French employers for not taking part in the "fun" office environment. 1A man has won the legal right to be boring at work, a court case in France has revealedCredit: Getty Consulting business Cubik Partners fired Mr T for being "insufficient professionally" because he refused to take part in "team building" activities with colleagues. A Paris court ruled in Mr T's favour this month after he took his former employer to trial. Court documents revealed the worker was asked to attending social activities out-of-hours, including "weekend drinks". Mr T's defence said this the company's boozy culture "frequently to excessive alcoholism encouraged by colleagues who made available very large quantities of alcohol, and practices pushed by colleagues involving promiscuity, bullying and incitement to various excesses". The wronged worker - who joined in 2011 and become a director in 2014 before his dismissal a year later - said...
    A Frenchman has won the legal right to be boring at work, after a court in Paris ruled his employer was wrong to fire him for not going out with colleagues enough. Cubik Partners, a management consultancy, says it uses a 'fun' approach to its team building — encouraging staff to head straight to the pub after work. But Mr T, whose real name was not disclosed, didn't want to take part in the team-building exercises. He said he was entitled to 'critical behaviour and to refuse company policy based on incitement to partake in various excesses'. The company decided to fire him in 2015 for 'professional inadequacy', accusing the employee of being boring, according to The Daily Telegraph. Cubik Partners also argued that Mr T was a poor listener and difficult to work with.

The fight was a quarterfinal lightweight bout between Ali Bagov and Rashid Magomedov at Friday's ACA 141 event in Sochi, Russia. The late stage of the tournament should have generated plenty of energy and desire to win, but both fighters were slammed after just standing there for four of the scheduled rounds. That was when ACA president Mairbek Khasjiev intervened. The ACA founder Mairbek Khasiev just disqualified Ali Bagov and Rashid Magomedov for being too boring. ????MMA continues to be wild. pic.twitter.com/5NvW5tDV8I— MMA mania (@mmamania) July 22, 2022 'The ACA League is not a kindergarten,' Khasiev told the live crowd after disqualifying both fighters, according to MMA website Bloody Elbow.

    The idea of gaining wealth in flashy ways isn’t new. After all, Charles Ponzi, for whom Ponzi schemes were named, defrauded investors more than 100 years ago with a get-rich-quick scheme built on a foundation of lies. Today, speculative investments, multilevel marketing companies and other risky efforts to turn a profit still lay seductive traps. You can always leave your money alone in an interest-bearing account and let time do its thing, but that doesn’t exactly make for exciting party conversations, does it? So we open and close accounts. We invest in hot stocks and sell them at the first sign of bad news.

    In this article .DJI .SPX .IXIC Many stocks that were up in Monday's session will continue winning, while those that declined will likely keep melting down, CNBC's Jim Cramer said. "The stocks that held up today are the ones that belong to companies with products that are in strong demand while supply remains limited," the "Mad Money" host said. "It's become a supply and demand market, not a market-share market or a land-and-expand market or a total addressable market or a go-to market." The Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 indexes fell from record highs, but the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite dropped 2.55%, continuing the downward trajectory of the past three months. Many of the stocks in the Nasdaq have become untouchable, even if their underlying companies are doing well, Cramer said. "I say this is a market for grizzled veterans because if a company's only been publicly traded for, say … a dozen years, it's most likely getting crushed right now," he said. "These modern stocks have become what we call in the business 'sources of...
    Donald Trump has speculated that Joe Biden is either lying or 'mentally gone' after the president on Tuesday night said his administration arrived to find no COVID-19 vaccines available. Trump, who on Wednesday broke his silence to give a series of interviews marking the death of Rush Limbaugh, told Newsmax Biden made 'a very dumb statement' about the vaccines. The former president teased a possible 2024 run, boasting about his 'tremendous support', and said he would not be returning to Twitter - the platform from which he was banned last month. 'It's become very boring,' he said. 'We don't want to go back to Twitter.' Donald Trump spoke to Newsmax host Greg Kelly on Wednesday night Trump has been at Mar-a-Lago in Florida since leaving Washington DC on January 20 Trump, 74, was on Wednesday highly critical of Biden's remarks during a CNN town hall in Milwaukee the night before. Biden, asked about combating COVID, told host Anderson Cooper: 'It's one thing to have the vaccine - which we didn't have when we came into office - but...
    WHEN ARE WE GETTING TO THE FIREWORKS FACTORY? For four years, this nation's political press corps worked diligently to paper over Donald Trump's reckless incompetence, issue illiteracy, radical white nationalist agenda, cruelty for the sake of cruelty, and narcissistic obsessions that rendered him unable to process any element of outside reality except as a boost or slight to his own personal ego. Simultaneously, the press has itself been unable to process the in-full-view radicalization of the Republican Party itself, even as they sabotaged national security probes, nullified laws, responded to election losses by stripping the lost offices of their normal powers, allied themselves with white supremacist militias and, most importantly of all, restructured the party into a tool for promoting known-false information, hoaxes, propaganda, and other manipulations intended specifically to mislead the American public and sabotage American elections. If you were wondering how long the nation's top papers would take to revert to form under a Biden presidency, the answer is one week. In The New York Times yesterday, the editorial board offered up the most milquetoast possible analysis of...

(RELATED: ‘That Is So Nasty’: Meghan McCain Fires Back At Joy Behar In Heated Exchange) WATCH: “Trump’s the only one. He has like a negative evil charisma,” Behar replied, arguing that other Republicans did not have quite the same effectiveness because they were all “boring.” “Mike Pence is boring, let’s face it,” Behar added, turning her attention to the vice president. “And I feel sorry for Mike. He’s like all these other politicians. If you kiss his butt, Trump’s butt, he gives you a medal. You know what I mean. If you don’t kiss his butt, you’re toast.

    President Donald Trump mocked Joe Biden for being 'boring' and not together, while also characterizing him as a criminal mastermind worse than 'crooked' Hillary Clinton as he slammed the Democrat Sunday night at his Carson City, Nevada rally.  'This is the most boring human being I've ever seen,' Trump said of Biden, while also claiming he was running a 'criminal enterprise' alongside his son, Hunter.  'The Bidens make "crooked" Hillary Clinton look like an absolute  amateur,' Trump said.  Pointing a finger at Hunter, Trump said, 'This guy's a vacuum cleaner,' alleging he was sucking up tons of foreign money.  'I call him the human vacuum cleaner,' the president said to cheers and applause from the crowd of several thousand watching the president in the hot Nevada sun.  President Donald Trump appeared at a campaign rally Sunday afternoon in Carson City, Nevada 16 days before the presidential election President Donald Trump briefly chatted with reporters on the tarmac in Reno, Nevada, as he arrived Sunday afternoon for his Carson City, Nevada rally  A woman dressed up in Native American...
    The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHOBH) will be without Teddi Mellencamp when it returns for its 11th season, after producers decided that the daughter of rock star John Mellencamp isn’t right for the show’s dynamic, an insider source told The Daily Mail. The soon-to-be-former co-star is reportedly “boring” and “stale,” and cast-mates are concerned about unhealthy diets that she promotes. Teddi has been with RHOBH for three seasons now, having joined the Bravo series in 2017 for its eighth series. She was also a cast member on Seasons 9 and 10; however, the tenth installment, which just wrapped, will be her last, according to an unidentified production source on the program. “Teddi will be advised this week that she will not be picked up for another season,” the unidentified team member said, adding that the network has not been impressed with her performance. The problem is that her interactions with castmates don’t seem to bring the drama that the production team is going for. “She is boring and stale and does not offer anything to the franchise with her...

    A WOMAN has given her staircase a jazzy makeover with Amazon LED lights.  Jasmine Murphy, 36, from South Woodham Ferrers in Essex has left other DIY fans stunned after revealing her stunning staircase transformation - which cost her just £69.  The SEO/PPC manager for a creative marketing agency was thinking of ways to make her house a home after being ‘embarrassed’ to invite friends over due to the boring decor.  She was quoted £250 for her stairway to be professionally painted and £190 to have the carpet and underlay purchased and fitted.  So Jasmine decided to transform the staircase herself and spent just £69 - £40 for an offcut piece of carpet from Facebook and £29 for two packs of LED lights from Amazon.  The mother is so impressed with the colourful new stairway - she is even thinking of using the area to meditate and destress.  4The mum was quoted almost £500 but did it herself for £69Credit: Jasmine Murphy She also found some spare underlay in her loft along with some leftover paint that she could use on...
    Being unfulfilled in the workplace can pay off.  Frédéric Desnard became the envy of fed up workers everywhere after being awarded $45,000 because his former job allegedly bored him out of his mind. The Parisian’s unlikely severance package marked the first case of a “bore-out” in French history, according to France TV. His “too boring” $80,000-a-year gig was a “descent into hell,” according to Desnard, who worked as a manager at Paris-based perfume firm Interparfums until 2014, the Telegraph reports. The bored-stiff worker claimed that after losing a key client he was relegated to working monotonous duties for four years, which made him “depressed, destroyed and ashamed.” Doctors seconded his self-diagnosis, while Desnard’s lawyers claimed in court that his hum-drum work life even caused him to suffer an epileptic seizure while driving. Due to his alleged declining mental state, Desnard left work for six months on sick leave, before eventually being furloughed by the cosmetics company in 2014. In an attempt to gain reparations for his on-the-job doldrums, he previously sued Interparfums for over $600,000 on the grounds of harassment...
