Bukayo Saka has told Jude Bellingham to remain fearless following the 17-year-olds first senior England call-up. Borussia Dortmund midfielder Bellingham could become the third-youngest player to represent the Three Lions if he makes an appearance in any of the upcoming fixtures. Gareth Southgates side start their triple-header with a friendly against the Republic of Ireland on Thursday night and, if he features, only Theo Walcott and Wayne Rooney would have made their England bows at a younger age than Bellingham. The former Birmingham man was promoted from the under-21 squad after injuries saw both Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Ward-Prowse pull out. Congratulations to @BellinghamJude, who has been called up to the #ThreeLions for the first time! 👏 pic.twitter.com/bWpDevg4ae— Englan...Read More
Geography, rather than race or age, paints the clearest picture of Trump’s defeat.
Geography, rather than race or age, paints the clearest picture of President Trump's defeat and illustrates the demographic trends that could hurt Republicans in future elections. The big picture: The rural-urban divide demonstrated President-elect Joe Biden's power in and around cities which helped him flip the states that delivered his election victory. But there's also a demographic trend that should worry Democrats: the support Trump won from some Latinos in some areas of the country.Here are four geographic and demographic trends that help explain the election outcome: 1. Suburbs have undergone a fundamental shift in favor of Democrats.Trump may have alienated some suburban voters in ways that wouldn't translate to other Republicans but suburban demographics are also rapidly changiRead More

A “soft” Augusta National will greatly enhance Bryson DeChambeau’s chances of winning his first Masters this week, says his coach.
Bryson DeChambeau heads into the Masters as the world number six The Masters Date: 12-15 November Venue: Augusta NationalCoverage: Radio and text commentary online with in-play clips. Daily highlights on BBC Two -full details here A "soft" Augusta National will greatly enhance Bryson DeChambeau's chances of winning his first Masters this week, says the US Open champion's coach. Cooler, potentially wetter conditions than usual at Augusta this week could see the course play longer than normal. "The course is going to be super soft, so Bryson carrying it 330 yards is a ginormous advantage," said Mike Schy. "When you look at Matthew Wolff, runner-up at the US Open, he was hitting it pretty far, but the fairways were hard and fast, whereas Bryson was carrying it 50 yards past him. "The gRead More

Peers moved to strip controversial clauses from the UK Internal Market Bill that would enable ministers to break international laws. The Lords voted 433 to 165, a majority of 268, to reject law-breaking powers after fierce criticism by Tory former leader Michael Howard and Tory ex-chancellor Ken Clarke. The Government immediately responded following the result on Monday night, by insisting it would not back down. A Government spokesperson said: "We are disappointed that the House of Lords has voted to remove clauses from the UK Internal Market Bill, which was backed in the House of Commons by 340 votes to 256 and delivers on a clear Conservative manifesto commitment. "We will re-table these clauses when the Bill returns to the Commons. "We've been consistently clear that the clauses r...Read More
The former vice-president is projected to win the White House – but does not get to move in straight away.
image copyrightGetty Images Joe Biden has been projected to reach the 270 electoral college votes needed to beat Donald Trump in the race to the White House. What happens now? The former vice-president does not get to move his furniture into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue straight away - there are a few things that need to happen first. It's usually a smooth process, but there are extra complications this time due to probable legal challenges to the election. First the votes need to be certified in each of the states. That's usually a formality and happens in the next few weeks. It's written in the US Constitution that the new term of office begins on 20 January at noon. It happens at a ceremony called the inauguration which takes place in the capital, Washington DC. The new president and...Read More
Trump is the subject of 15 inquiries, criminal and civil, by nine federal, state and district agencies into his business and personal finances – these matters are not going away for the soon-to-be former president
In his testimony to Congress, following his investigation, Robert Mueller was asked by the Republican representative Ken Buck: Could you charge the president with a crime after he left the office? Mueller replied: Yes. Buck continued: You believe that he committed you could charge the president of the United States with obstruction of justice after he left office? Again, the response was: Yes. The special counsels report into whether Donald Trump was the Muscovian candidate for the White House concluded that Trump may have committed obstruction of justice on at least 10 occasions. But Mueller had decided that a 1973 Justice Department decision that a sitting president cannot be indicted meant that charging Trump with federal crime would be unconstitutional. The 47-year-old ruling on pres...Read More

When large parts of the world were shutting down in March, we really didn’t know how we would move massive numbers of employees used to working in the office to work from home. In early March, I wrote a piece on how to prepare for such an eventuality, speaking to several experts who had a background in the software and other tooling that would be involved. But the shift involved so much more than the mechanics of working at home. We were making this transition during a pandemic that was forcing us to deal with a much broader set of issues in our lives. Yet here we are seven months later, and surely we must have learned some lessons along the way about working from home effectively, but what do these lessons look like and how can we make the most of this working approach for however long ...Read More
