    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kyle Busch started his Saturday by joining past winners at the hallowed Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a class photo on the Yard of Bricks. He was seated next to Arie Luyendyk, in front of Marcus Ericsson, Alexander Rossi and Helio Castroneves — a combined eight Indy 500 titles flanking NASCAR’s only active driver with multiple Cup championships. And yet Busch still doesn’t have a contract for next season. His longtime sponsor is pulling out of NASCAR at the end of the season, and if Joe Gibbs Racing doesn’t find a deep-pocketed replacement for M&M’s and Mars Inc., Busch will have to find a job elsewhere. It’s an unfathomable predicament for Busch, the 2015 and 2019 NASCAR champion and winner of 60 career Cup races, with all but four won since joining JGR in 2008. He wants to stay in the No. 18 Toyota, but the clock is ticking. “It’d be like Dale Earnhardt in 1998, three or four years after winning his last championship, being on the free agency market and not having...

    CalPoly freshman Kristin Smart was last seen near her college dorm on Friday May 24, 1996 The mother of vanished college freshman Kristin Smart said her daughter fell victim to a spate of police failures in the wake of her disappearance from campus in 1996. Denise Smart said local police and staff at California Polytechnic State University had neglected to find Kristin, 19, forcing the Smart family to spend the past 25 years searching. Taking the stand at her daughter's murder trial, which began Monday, a tearful Denise said: 'I felt like the life of my daughter was of no value to anyone except her family. 'For the next 25 years, I did whatever I could and looked for answers wherever I could', CBS Sacramento reported. Denise said she contacted police shortly after Kristin failed to call home on Sunday, May 26. Kristin's cheerful call home was a weekly ritual, she said. They didn't know that she had last been seen on Friday, May 24.  Paul Flores, 45, is on trial in southern California. He is charged with Kristin's murder...

He said: "We had the house valued and were told it was now...

While they didn’t want to do a major renovation or throw too much money at the property – as they don’t consider it their “forever home” – they were determined to give it a fresh makeover that better suited their tastes. They set about decorating last November, painting the walls in neutral tones, ripping up the carpet to let the wooden floor breath, and adding panelling to the walls for a touch of glamour.

    ONE mum's controversial tough love tactics - from insisting her seven-year-old daughter cleans toilets and does chores to demanding the money she "earns" back as payment of rent - have sent the internet into uproar. The young girl gets to work daily to earn money, receiving a mere few dollars back at the end of the week - most of which is used to settle her "rent" and living costs. 3Mum Felicia Farley shares a controversial parenting hackCredit: Tiktok / momofsassholess Boasting on a Tiktok video that she had the ultimate parenting hack to "teach kids the value of money", Felicia Farley explained, "Every week my daughter has a list of chores.

    U.S. Navy leaders are failing to “promote or advance surface ship warfighting in a meaningful way,” according to officers interviewed for a congressional report on several major naval accidents. “Sometimes I think we care more about whether we have enough diversity officers than if we’ll survive a fight with the Chinese navy,” according to an officer the report describes as “one lieutenant currently on active duty." “It’s criminal. They think my only value is as a black woman," she added, according to the report. "But you cut our ship open with a missile and we’ll all bleed the same color.” The report emerged out of “77 exhaustive and intensive interviews ... with sailors of all walks of naval life” — a majority of whom agreed that the loss of the USS Bonhomme Richard and other major accidents, such as the deadly collisions that damaged two destroyers over the last five years, reflect a common problem. “Many sailors found their leadership distracted, captive to bureaucratic excess, and rewarded for the successful execution of administrative functions rather than their skills as a...
    Swiss Re, the global insurance company, has a new report outlining the catastrophic effects of climate change on the economy. According to the company, the world could lose about 10% of total economic value due to climate change. “Our analysis shows the potential costs that economies could face should governments fail to act more decisively on climate,” said Patrick Saner, who is in charge of global macroeconomic forecasts for Swiss Re. Rising temperatures will impact global wealth as crop yields reduce, rising seas takeover coasts, and disease spreads. The consequences of failing to hit climate targets are enormous.  The forecasted economic consequences could be worth $23 trillion. “Climate risk is a systemic risk and can only be addressed globally. We still have an opportunity to correct course now and construct a world that will be greener, more sustainable and more resilient,” said Jérôme Haegeli, Swiss Re’s Group Chief Economist. The report came days before President Biden made significant climate pledges, including pledges to cut emissions in half in the United States. Sign this petition to demand that U.S. legislators...
    Dear Quentin, I love reading your column, and hearing about all the different aspects of financial questions, but now it’s my turn to ask for your advice. Twelve years ago, my boyfriend’s brother lent us $6,000 to cover closing costs on a home purchase, plus a little extra for initial repairs. (If it’s relevant, the title and mortgage on the house are in my name only, and my boyfriend and I have always kept separate bank accounts.) “ ‘No part of this transaction was ever committed to paper, and the only occasional reference ever made to the arrangement.’ ” Initially, because the house was in terrible shape, he viewed the loan more along the lines of an investment, and planned to continue funding the necessary repairs and upgrades in return for a share of any increase in value. Shortly after lending us the money, however, he bought his own home and told us he would not be able to finance any further renovations. When I refinanced the mortgage a year and a half later, I offered to...
