Every minute Kwasi Kwarteng is up at the dispatch box on Friday – and he is expected to speak for at least 20 – the Chancellor will cost the taxpayer at least £2billion.

Accompanied by a few pages of Treasury costs — but no formal forecast from the Office of Budget Responsibility — the unusual weekend session could determine whether or not Liz Truss’s premiership is successful.

As politics resume at full speed, here are five things to watch:

The Chancellor will present his mini-budget at 9.30am – watch and follow live

New ministers tell their predecessors they were wrong

Without naming names, Mr Kwarteng’s statement will make it clear that Boris Johnson’s government must bear a great deal of responsibility for the country’s ills.

Team Truss believes that the direction needs to change, that their mission is clearer, their communication strategy more precise and the ideological purpose more obvious.

The new Number 10 – who, ironically, has more than a decade of cabinet experience – believes the May and Johnson years pursued the wrong goals, lacked focus and led the country to suffer from levels of declining growth for most of the past decade. .

“Friday is about defining a new approach to the economy,” a government source said bluntly.

“The approach so far has not worked.”

Not a good time for former Tory chancellors, who are said to have failed.

This should come as no surprise to keen observers of the new Truss administration – during his reshuffle, the new prime minister made it clear that loyalty trumps competence.

Two weeks ago, on his first day as prime minister, Rishi Sunak supporter Grant Shapps approached Ms Truss to see if he would stay on as transport secretary.

As she set out the reasons for her dismissal, she nevertheless told Mr Shapps that he was ‘one of the most capable secretaries of state in the government’ and ‘probably the best communicator in the government’ – but because that he did not support her, there was “No room at the inn”.

That judgment ricocheted through conservative ranks, inflaming already bubbly anger over some reshuffle decisions.

Friends of Mr Shapps, however, suggest he is more stolid than most, appreciating the direct approach and expecting to be back in government before long.

But the message was clear – Truss wanted to surround himself with believers.

The new A-Team gets to work

The government has a new central mission: to ensure “trend” growth of 2.5% in the medium term.

This is defined by a new “economic quadruple” – a quartet of ministers who determine how to get there.

Sitting alongside the prime minister at these meetings is his chancellor, Mr Kwarteng, a long-time colleague, ideological ally and fellow Greenwich member based in south-east London.

There is also Leveling Secretary Simon Clarke, whose importance to this administration should not be underestimated as the architect of the comprehensive strategy known throughout Whitehall for the confidence of the new Prime Minister.

Business Secretary Jacob Rees Mogg attends most meetings, but not all. Sometimes, Deputy Prime Minister Thérèse Coffey is there too or in place of the others.

This is where the new plan for Britain is hammered out at top speed. For some economists and supporters of his rival Mr. Sunak, this is unorthodox.

High Bank of England interest rates are a problem

Mr Kwarteng will use Friday’s growth statement to follow through on well-followed campaign promises to reverse the rise in corporation tax and reverse the rise in National Insurance, now likely coupled with cuts in human rights stamp, together costing tens of billions of pounds.

This is all designed to fuel economic growth to try to avoid a post-Ukraine, post-Covid downturn or recession.

But while the government is borrowing tens of billions to stimulate primary growth and increase demand, the Bank of England is doing the opposite, raising interest rates sharply this week to dampen demand and reduce inflation – currently at five times the official target of 2%.

Let’s take a political example: this week, the government will borrow billions to fuel the housing market with a reduction in stamp duties.

It will be announced 24 hours after the Bank of England made mortgages more expensive with an interest rate hike, locking millions into variable rate deals and those with fixed rate deals ending in the financial misery.

“I have no way of explaining this or reconciling these things,” said a Whitehall official involved in the talks.

Ministers – who privately worry about high interest rates – need a better explanation than this.

It’s all about deregulation – just look at the investment zones

Friday will see another sea change in political direction in the middle of Parliament and an iconic Truss policy will demonstrate this – the ‘investment zones’, which will be at the heart of his new ‘leveling up’ vision.

These mutant and more radical descendants of the free ports will be installed in 40 regions of the country. Here, lower environmental and planning standards mean development could be cheaper and construction easier, while taxes for businesses and residents will also be lower.

Residents are unlikely to benefit from income tax reductions in investment zones, but National Insurance relief could still be passed on to employees.

This could mark a massive transformation in parts of the country, depending on their size – in theory a new investment zone could cover an entire region of the town hall the size of Greater Manchester, although initially most should be part of council areas.

It will also depend on the large number of rules and regulations that residents and local businesses inside these areas will no longer have to follow.

Any attempt to abandon environmental and planning rules has led to rebellion at local and national level. Will the new investment zones be a means of circumventing the communes and the Parliament to avoid such an outcry during the concreting of the countryside?

MPs have been called by ministers over the past two days to tell them their constituencies have been chosen, even before the policy was officially announced, such is the rush to prepare some of them for a photo op at a party conference in less than a fortnight.

Ms Truss wants to appear, shovel in hand, possibly standing next to West Midlands Mayor Andy Street in one of these newly announced areas, making it clear what she stands for.

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen, long a Tory favorite in Johnson’s time, has vehemently backed Mr Sunak so he may be a lesser recipient of government largesse and favors this year.

Already 40 councils have been approached to be involved, and most are likely to say yes.

Suffice it to mention that from 2010 to 2015 David Cameron’s coalition government – of which Ms Truss was a member – also created ‘enterprise zones’, although they died out years later with little apparent lasting success or benefit.

If Michael Gove did it, expect him to be undone

Boris Johnson’s ‘upgrade’ slogan may have survived, but what it means in practice has already changed.

All over Whitehall, Johnson and Gove the plans for the era are being abandoned, nowhere more actively than at the Department of Leveling Up where the more commanding philosophy of interventionism, raising living standards and strengthening public services, is replaced by an approach centered on deregulation.

Some are now suggesting that Mr Gove’s plans – worked until his sacking as upgrade secretary in July – look like ‘socialism’ compared to the Truss team’s new approach.

The era of Michael Gove and Boris Johnson is over

The Johnson-era Leveling and Regeneration Bill before Parliament – an assortment of measures to track improvements in local communities and improve local democracy – is about to be gutted.

Areas like Oxford and Cambridge – which Mr Gove said could attract private investment without government help – could even now become investment zones. The Blue Wall could benefit from it.

Other Gove pet projects through the ages could also be disbanded. High schools – which he kept under control as education secretary – are now set to grow.

The strong affinity with the American government, which he has always advocated, is now being put to the test. His approach to post-Brexit green issues since he was environment secretary could be undone.

Nothing he touched is particularly safe.

In conclusion…

Will it work? It depends on three groups – voters, Tory MPs and the markets.

The first did not have the chance to digest the change.

The latter are not yet in full form.

“The feeling is not mutineer,” said a Sunak supporter. “We think we’re sacrificing our economic credibility and we’ll lose, but we can’t bother fighting it at this point.”

The third audience – the financial markets – may be the most delicate in the immediate term.

Today it emerged that the cost of government borrowing rose to its highest level in August since monthly records began in 1997 as inflation pushed up interest payments on government debt.

Could the most ideological free-market government of a generation fall under the spell of investors because of the scale of their borrowing?

Here is the list of the 10 main actions that will be in the spotlight today:

ACC/Ambuja cements: Billionaire Gautam Adani’s group has pledged shares worth around $13 billion in two Indian cement companies just days after completing the acquisition from Holcim Ltd., reflecting the second person’s hunger for capital richest in the world as its conglomerate of power ports expands rapidly. Stakes in two of these companies – approximately 57% of ACC Ltd. and 63% of Ambuja Cements Ltd. – were encumbered “for the benefit of certain lenders and other financial parties”, according to documents filed separately with Indian stock exchanges. by the Hong Kong branch of Deutsche Bank AG.

Gaelle India: India bought some of the country’s most expensive liquefied natural gas shipments after vital Russian supplies were canceled. Gail India Ltd. bought several LNG shipments for delivery between October and November at more than double the price it paid at this time last year. The New Delhi-based company is struggling to replace supply from Gazprom’s former trading arm PJSC, which was nationalized by Germany earlier this year and is paying contract fines rather than delivering fuel.

Yes Bank: Private lender Yes The bank’s board of directors has approved the transfer of distressed assets worth 48,000 crore to private equity firm JC Flowers. Yes Bank will also acquire a 19.99% stake in ARC, subject to regulatory approvals, the lender said in a BSE filing. Yes Bank’s Board of Directors has named JC Flowers as the winner of the Swiss Challenge process. The decision follows a Swiss Challenge auction where the bank received no competing bids against core bidder JC Flowers ARC.

SpiceJet: SpiceJet has decided to put about 80 pilots on unpaid leave for three months to cut costs, people familiar with the matter told Mint. The airline said it was a temporary measure to streamline expenses and optimize the fleet. About 70 to 80 pilots from the Boeing 737 fleet and the Bombardier Q400 fleet have been placed on unpaid leave for a period of three months.

Mahindra and Mahindra: Mahindra & Mahindra(M&M) Ltd announced on Tuesday that it will acquire an additional 17.41% stake in Swaraj Engines Ltd from Kirloskar Industries Ltd (KIL) for 296 crore. The acquisition will result in an increase in the company’s stake in Swaraj Engines Ltd (SEL) to 52.13% from 34.72%, M&M said in a regulatory filing. The company proposes to acquire 21,14,349 shares constituting 17.41% of the paid-up share capital of SEL from KIL at a price of 1,400 per share, he says.

central bank of india: The state-owned Central Bank of India will no longer be subject to the strict lending restrictions imposed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in June 2017, as the regulator said on Tuesday that the bank had been removed from Quick Corrective Action (RAP). The regulator said that based on the bank’s assessed figures for the year ended March 31, it was not in breach of APC parameters.

Tata Steel: Tata Steel lifted 2,000 crore through the issuance of non-convertible debentures after the board approved the allotment of 20,000 NCD with a face value of 10 lakh each to identified investors on a private placement basis, according to reports. NCDs are proposed to be listed on BSE’s Wholesale Debt Market (WDM) segment.

KRBL Limited: The government on Tuesday extended the deadline for exporting broken rice in transit to September 30. It was previously allowed until September 15. The government had banned broken rice exports on September 8. KRBL Limited is the largest rice miller in the world and a leading player in rice exports. The September 8 notification said that during the period from September 9 to 15, some shipments of broken rice would be allowed to be exported.

Commercial Bank of Tamilnad: The Reserve Bank has refused Tamilnad Mercantile Bank’s recommendation to appoint B Vijayadurai as the lender’s part-time non-executive chairman, according to a regulatory filing. The bank had on August 20 recommended to the RBI the appointment of B Vijayadurai as part-time non-executive chairman. The reasons for RBI’s refusal could not be determined. He said the regulator had advised him to submit a new proposal for another independent director for the position of part-time non-executive chairman.

MotoCorp Heroes: Hero MotoCorp announced on Tuesday that it has partnered with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd to set up charging infrastructure for electric two-wheelers in the country. As part of this initiative, the two companies will first establish charging infrastructure in the existing network of stations of the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL), with the likelihood of expanding the collaboration later for additional business opportunities.

The outbreak of Hurricane Fiona has left Puerto Rico without power. On Sunday afternoon, Hurricane Fiona hit the island of Puerto Rico. The intensity of the hurricane was so strong that the unincorporated territory of the United States was left without power.

Amid high winds that reached 86 mph (140 km/h) and intense rain, there were infrastructure damage. What makes matters worse is that Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico, just five years later. Hurricane Mariaconsidered the worst natural disaster in the island’s history, caused extensive damage.

A video, taken by photojournalist Juan R Costa, shows how hurricane-induced flooding washed away an entire bridge in the town of Utuado.

While sharing the video on Twitter, Juan R Costa (@NotiJuan) wrote that the bridge was installed on a national road at Salto Arriba in Utuado. Her 24-second clip posted on Monday garnered over 2.6 lakh views.

Commenting on the video, a Twitter user wrote, “As you go about your normal business today, please send positive vibes to Puerto Rico. The whole country is without electricity. Floods, damage… The hurricane season is not over.

Another person wrote: “Climate change and its disastrous effects will not stop just because you deny its existence. Mother nature is not playing with you all. Pray for the safety of the people of Puerto Rico. »

Speaking about how infrastructure damage is hampering relief work, one Twitter user remarked, “Part of my family is trapped in Utuado because the bridge collapsed, no one can get out and the emergency services emergency cannot come. It’s horrible and the action needs to happen ASAP, they shouldn’t be left here to die. We should never have let them die since Maria”.

Reviews of Apple Watch Ultra and iPhone 14 https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/reviews-of-apple-watch-ultra-and-iphone-14/ Fri, 16 Sep 2022 23:22:00 +0000 https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/reviews-of-apple-watch-ultra-and-iphone-14/ Apple’s latest devices are designed to help you be more adventurous outdoors, become a better content creator and, according to the company, stay alive.

Apple’s latest devices are designed to help you be more adventurous outdoors, become a better content creator and, according to the company, stay alive.

That’s the vibe I felt after testing the new iPhone 14, Apple Watch Ultra and AirPods Pro 2 lines, Apple’s latest high-end products. They are expensive, yes, but many will think the new offerings are worth it.

Apple is releasing three new watch models (Apple Watch SE, Series 8, and Ultra), two iPhone models (the 14 and 14 Pro, each in two sizes), and the second-generation AirPods Pro. As a Bloomberg Pursuits reporter who focuses on lifestyle products, I’m going to focus on the ones that offer the most features and therefore the most expensive: the Apple Watch Ultra (starting at $799) and the iPhone 14 Pro (from $999).

Apple Watch Ultra

With a 49mm titanium case and rugged appearance, Apple Watch Ultra isn’t your ordinary smartwatch. Yes, it has all the features of other Apple Watches, but it can handle extreme outdoor conditions.

The customizable “action button,” only available on the Apple Watch Ultra, is on the left side of the device and covered in a color called “international orange.” This is a new hardware addition to make it easier to navigate the watch. With the push of the physical button, you can track training intervals, start a built-in dive computer (Huish Outdoors LLC’s Oceanic+ app, available this fall, which launches automatically after your dive and calculates and monitors dive), set up a stopwatch or drop waypoints along your route.

Coupled with dual-frequency GPS, the waypoints feature allows anyone from hikers to people living in dense urban areas to accurately document the places they’ve been and retrace the route they’ve taken just in case. they would get lost. Although I didn’t go into the woods to test the GPS system, operating the feature was intuitive. A simple press of the action button will drop a pin on where you are, and a simple scroll of the crown on the right side of the watch can take you to the previous point you dropped. Selecting the “Backspace” feature in the Action Button app will map the route you have taken.

The standard Apple Watch Series 8 also has the improved compass that lets you drop and go back, but that requires more manual maneuvering without the action button, which is probably fine for many people who don’t mind get lost in nature. base.

In a noisy environment, such as a strong wind on a mountain top or the hustle and bustle of a big city, Apple Watch Ultra has an improved microphone system to pick up your voice for phone calls lights, as well as a new loudspeaker. which can blast a loud emergency siren that Apple says can be heard up to 600 feet or 180 meters away. (The demonstrator at the presentation said it was too loud to test there.) Another lifesaving feature, also available for the 8 Series, is a new sensor to detect a car crash and notify services. emergency.

In addition to the older sleep, ECG, heart rate and blood oxygen tracking features, both watch models added two sensors, one on the back of the device and the ‘other inside and behind the screen, to discern changes in body temperature. Apple touts the feature as a family planning tool: by wearing the watch all the time, women can track their ovulation cycles (after analyzing at least two months of temperature readings) and decide the best time to get pregnant. The idea sounded cool, but I have reservations about wearing a large wrist device in bed. And willingly giving up so much data and control to a technology has given me a bit of black mirror flashbacks.

The Apple Watch Ultra, priced at $799, can also last 36 hours of battery life, or 60 hours on low power, withstand temperatures from -4F to 131F, and remain waterproof to a depth of 100 meters.

iPhone 14 ranges

As mentioned, Apple prioritizes the “wild” aspect of most new features. All iPhone 14s are capable of sending an emergency SOS via satellite (the service will be available in November). This means that even without Wi-Fi or cellular data, phones can make emergency calls using satellite technology. They also have a collision detection sensor that will alert emergency services if you are involved in an accident.

Along with lifesaving features, there are some cool features like setting up multiple lock screens, taking better low-light photos, and more stabilized action videos. I tested out the autofocus front camera while uncomfortably taking a selfie as a model dressed in all sorts of shades of green looked on, who eventually joined me in a photo and exclaimed, ” Look, he can focus on the two of us.” It made. In a dimly lit room, I captured another model’s bored face with cameras on an iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro. The trio of cameras balanced the dark purple and brown colors while clearly showing the person.

The iPhone 14 (from $799) and iPhone 14 Plus (from $899) appear to be a standard upgrade from the iPhone 13, including better 12-megapixel wide cameras and different colors (midnight, blue, starlight, purple and (PRODUCT)RED) . Apple offers a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen respectively for the two identical models and has eliminated the Mini option.

By comparison, the more exciting features are packed into the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Available in a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen, the two cost at least $999 and $1,099 respectively. A notable addition is the black pill-shaped area at the top of the screen, where the speaker and front camera are located. Apple calls it the Dynamic Island. It’s a multitasking tool that helps people keep track of what they’re doing. For example, if you are listening to music and need to switch to another app, the music app will automatically be moved to the island. You can then expand the island to change songs or pause the music. You can also take a look at it for the duration of a phone call and an animated waveform of the audio; recording a voice memo; the progression of a chronometer; or see a combination of apps running in the background.

The camera system is a big deal for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, which each have three cameras on the back. The main wide camera is 48 megapixels, a monumental increase from 12 megapixels for the iPhone 13 Pro.

The always-on display on newer models dims the screen instead of turning it off completely, so users can see essential information such as the time, date and temperature without touching the screen. The essentials are customizable, and you can turn off Always-On Display as well.

What about the Fitness app that only appeared on your iPhone after pairing with an Apple Watch? It will appear on your home screen once you upgrade to iOS 16, even if you don’t have an Apple Watch. The app’s Fitness+ tab (coming this fall) is filled with workouts, meditations, and motivational episodes. New Apple Watch buyers get Apple Fitness+ free for three months (existing owners get one month free), then the subscription is $9.99 per month or $79.99 per year.

Marcus Mariota’s mistakes prove costly for Falcons in season-opening loss https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/marcus-mariotas-mistakes-prove-costly-for-falcons-in-season-opening-loss/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 03:40:36 +0000 https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/marcus-mariotas-mistakes-prove-costly-for-falcons-in-season-opening-loss/ If they had picked up the first down, the game would have been over. “Yeah, that was 100% on me,” Mariota said. “We had a great look for the game we called.

If they had picked up the first down, the game would have been over.

“Yeah, that was 100% on me,” Mariota said. “We had a great look for the game we called. I tried to cheat and come back a little faster to have the opportunity to read it a little better. It’s something you take for granted. Unfortunately, that kind of slipped our minds, and that’s entirely up to me.

Mariota completed 20 of 33 passes for 215 yards without a touchdown or interception. He finished with a passer rating of 79.7.

He also rushed 12 times for 72 yards and a touchdown.

ExploreSaints come back to defeat Falcons, 27-26

Rookie Drake London led the Falcons in reception with five catches for 74 yards.

“There’s a lot to learn for me personally,” London said. “For us as a unit. For us as a team. So, just go back and watch the movie. Try to perfect my craft and make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Mariota felt London, who missed three weeks of training with a knee injury, played well.

“I think he had a great day,” Mariota said. “For us, it’s not a surprise. We saw this throughout camp. We have seen this in OTAs. So I think it’s a great stepping stone, but that’s the wait.

“That’s the standard we’re going to hold it to. But I love playing with these guys. They keep finding ways to open up, and you just have to find ways to get it to them.

Tight end Kyle Pitts has been targeted seven times. He had two catches for 19 yards.

Mariota completed passes to eight different receivers.

The Falcons want to improve on that performance.

“I would say the biggest difference was just finishing in the red zone,” said Mariota, where the Falcons were 2 of 4 against the Saints. “We had opportunities – multiple opportunities to get in there and score touchdowns and put the game away. We allowed them, as an offence, to stick around.

Mariota, who was the No. 2 overall player selected in the 2015 NFL Draft, was 29-32 as a starter with the Titans. He was benched during the 2019 season.

Mariota has played the past two seasons as a substitute with the Raiders.

He signed a two-year contract in March after the Falcons traded Matt Ryan to the Colts for a third-round pick.

The Falcons rushed for 201 yards on 38 carries but still managed to lose.

“I think if you ever run the game as well as we do, make plays in the passing game, obviously we have to find ways to score more points,” Mariota said. “I think we did a great job moving the ball.”

The Falcons’ revamped offensive line paved the way for the running game. This added even more intrigue to the decision to throw the ball on fourth and first with the game on the line.

“The guys up front did an amazing job throughout the game controlling the line of scrimmage, and when it comes to that in this league, if you don’t score points in the red zone, you leave the door is open and you have to pay homage to the saints,” Mariota said. “They found a way in the end to win the game.

For a popular sports pub, it’s drastic to have to consider canceling your BT and Sky subscriptions in order to stay open.

But that’s the dilemma facing Gerard Keenan (42) and his wife Sinead, who own Dan’s Bar in West Belfast and have six children aged between 3 and 13.

Their last bill for a month’s electricity use was triple what it was, and after investing in energy-saving measures like sensor lights a few years ago, they must now look at what other cuts they can make.

“We can’t save anymore,” Gerard said. “We now have all the sensor lights and we turn off our lights in the morning and try to rely on daylight coming through the door instead.

“But after hearing the electricity bill would be so high, I told Sinead we had to cancel our Sky and BT Sports which were costing us around £1,400 or £1,500 a month. But she said if we did that we would lose the small number of customers we have who rely on us to come and watch the football.

It is also awaiting a gas bill, with SSE provider Airtricity announcing a 35.4% increase two weeks ago.

“Fortunately, we haven’t refueled for a while because the weather has been pretty good, so it’s not even worth thinking about right now,” he added.

The feeling of anxiety about the future has spread to the staff.

He explained, “We have an employee who was on maternity leave and found another job because she was so afraid that there was no work for her here. In her head, she watched everything that was happening and she was scared, because she had just had a baby.

“I was devastated because we kept all of our staff on during the pandemic.”

He said he felt more supported during Covid, when Stormont ministers took part in daily updates on the restrictions.

“It doesn’t help now that we don’t have anyone to help us,” he added.

“We had Arlene Foster and Michelle O’Neill standing there trying to pacify everyone and say, ‘I know you had to close your business, but bear with us.’

“Someone on the front line always made you breathe easier, even though at the time we had no money and the bank took all the money that went into our account.

“But we always found comfort in the idea that someone was there and worked hard. But now nobody is doing anything and I don’t think that’s fair.

Yet cash grants of the kind given during the pandemic will not suffice now.

He believes that the threat to hospitality is more fundamental.

“This time we knew from the start that we would have a chance to open and the subsidies etc. were just a temporary band-aid,” he said.

“But it’s not something that if someone took money from us it would be fine. If someone could give us a grant of £5,000 or £10,000 now it would be swallowed up by the bills in some months.

Some of the older children experience anxiety.

“I do my best to stay positive, but the kids say, ‘Is everything okay, dad?’ The older ones know more and don’t ask for anything more, and they even walk around at night turning off the lights.

Consumption habits are also changing, with fewer customers.

“The same punters don’t come, and when they come, they come for a drink or two at the end of the night, instead of floating around at three or four different times of the day.

“It’s just a matter of retaining what we have, which is why Sinead is so opposed to the scrapping of Sky and BT Sports.”

He added: “But it’s going to have to be canceled so that we can survive, which is a problem in itself because we’re a sports-focused pub.

“Who’s going to want to come back to Dan’s to watch football when it’s not even on the air?”

Inflation can’t stop fans of Serena Williams’ US Open and $22 cocktails https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/inflation-cant-stop-fans-of-serena-williams-us-open-and-22-cocktails/ Sat, 03 Sep 2022 12:10:00 +0000 https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/inflation-cant-stop-fans-of-serena-williams-us-open-and-22-cocktails/ FLUSHING, NY – Guests at this year’s US Open tennis tournament could be courting huge credit card bills – but many told MarketWatch that seeing icons like Rafael Nadal, Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams in their element is priceless.

FLUSHING, NY – Guests at this year’s US Open tennis tournament could be courting huge credit card bills – but many told MarketWatch that seeing icons like Rafael Nadal, Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams in their element is priceless.

Bill and Miranda Whitt of Houston, Texas have spent most of the past year saving up for their first-ever trip to the US Open to celebrate Miranda’s 40th birthday.

“We had to succumb to Serena’s influence,” said Bill, 44, a mechatronics engineer who managed to catch the 23-time Grand Slam winner in action before she was knocked out of the Open. Friday night.

Avan, 64, from Kansas, who declined to give his last name, agreed that “it’s worth it – it’s exciting!”

And he managed to save some money by enduring a long layover in St. Louis on his way to his first US Open.

“As much as I’ve played tennis, I’ve never been to the US Open,” he added. “There are shops, stores, restaurants – it’s just a full experience, really.”

And nothing is cheap.

After tennis legend Serena Williams suggested it would likely be her last professional tennis tournament last month, ticket prices soared more than 87% to an average of $568, 117% more expensive than the last year, and nearly double the prices of 2011, according to TicketIQ data. (Williams even sported 400 diamonds on his custom Nike sneakers this week.)

Even players are competing for a record total prize of $60.1 million.

Inflation which currently remains near a 40-year high has also certainly increased the cost of airfare and hotel accommodation to attend the two-week tournament which draws hundreds of thousands of spectators around the world. Queens, New York (which is already an expensive metro area), not to mention on-site concessions like the signature Honey Deuce cocktail (now $22, 10% more than last year) and chicken tenders at $16.

“The food has definitely gone up, but it’s gotten better,” said Vi Ballard, 70, of Palos Verdes, Calif., who has appeared at the US Open more than 15 times.

“Everything is expensive,” she added.

But rumors that the first week of the Open could be Williams’ swansong certainly played a role in driving up ticket prices. Tickets for his game last Monday averaged close to $1,000 on the secondary market.

Still, viewers who spoke to MarketWatch said they weren’t seriously tempted to cash in on their places in the resale market, despite uncertain economic conditions surrounding inflation and a possible recession. Indeed, a record-breaking audience of nearly 30,000 – including Tiger Woods, Spike Lee and Zendaya – filled the stands on Wednesday night to watch Williams beat No. 2 seed Anett Kontaveit of Estonia.

See also: Serena Williams wins again at US Open – but, really, can she ever lose?

“You could sell [your tickets] and make so much money,” said Gwen, a first-time U.S. Open visitor from California who declined to give her last name. She and a friend landed their tickets before Williams announced she was stepping away from tennis, so they could have sold them for a tidy profit. But Gwen said getting away from day-to-day stressors and seeing history in action was too big of a draw.

“There’s so much energy,” she said.

Some guests made room in their budget for the US Open spectacle through hard work and clever budget tricks. Amy Biau, a marketing consultant from New York, has been coming to the Open since 2005. She used credit card rewards points to buy her tickets this year, and she gave herself a budget of $50 to buy stuff.

“I looked at a shirt that was nice, but it was $98,” said Blau, who gave his age as “not 70, not 80.” And she may be out of luck for an affordable souvenir, as even adult US Open online merchandise is $36 and up.

But others like the Houston Whitts are fully invested in the experience.

“We’ve spent the last nine months putting money aside for the US Open,” said Miranda, who handles operations for an oil and gas company. She said they saved money “on every paycheck.”

They cut costs where they could, like marking their tickets in early 2022 when seats were still under $200 each. And they’re staying in a Manhattan timeshare owned by Miranda’s parents to help keep accommodation costs down.

Their biggest budget hack was refilling their water bottles at the venue’s hydration stations, rather than spending $8 per bottle of Evian.

But they couldn’t resist a $22 Honey Deuce (about the price of three Evians at the Open). “We had to buy one just to try it out,” Miranda said.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

WATCH NOW

Before the The the Lord of the Ringsthere was The Hobbit. Although the film adaptation only came nearly a decade after Peter Jackson’s smash hit LOTR films, the story, like its celluloid predecessor, was divided into three installments.

In it, we meet Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) – the titular mild-mannered hobbit, who finds himself (you guessed it) on an unexpected journey when the wizard Gandalf and a group of dwarves recruit him to help. to steal a legendary treasure from a dragon. Importantly for Tolkien fans, this film also introduces the One Ring and kicks off the events that will eventually lead to the LOTR trilogy.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

WATCH NOW

In the second part of The Hobbit trilogy, Thorin Oakenshield and Company (including the hobbit, Bilbo) fight their way through Mirkwood, home to a kingdom of wood elves, including LOTR Fan-favorite Legolas and Lonely Mountain, the ancestral home of the dwarves, to battle the dragon Smaug.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

WATCH NOW

The epic conclusion of The Hobbit The trilogy sees the fallout of ousting a dragon and the dangers of greed. In case the title wasn’t a giveaway, expect some epic battle scenes to begin before not-so-homebody hobbit Bilbo finally concludes his adventure – with a certain ring in tow.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

WATCH NOW

Peter Jackson’s Oscar-winning trilogy begins more than half a century after Bilbo’s unexpected journey. The aging hobbit leaves behind his most prized possession, his ring of invisibility, with his nephew, Frodo, but the ring carries a powerful secret – one that will send Frodo (and his band of friends and brave companions) into his own great adventure, and leaves the fate of all of Middle-earth hanging in the balance.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

WATCH NOW

The second movie of the LOTR The trilogy finds the brotherhood scattered and many battles ahead as noble Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli struggle to recover their kidnapped hobbit friends, while ring-bearer Frodo and his trusty right-hand man Sam take a dangerous path to try to destroy the One Ring and find a dubious ally in the cunning Gollum, who has returned to claim his “precious”.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

WATCH NOW

The conclusion to such a dramatic tale couldn’t be anything less than epic. Expect jaw-dropping battle scenes, heart-pounding danger, and edge-of-your-seat anticipation as the Fellowship battles the forces of evil Sauron, attempts to reclaim Aragorn’s lost throne, and perhaps , just maybe, to destroy the Ring to deal with them all once and for all.

Chelsea verdict: Boehly took a break from the transfer cart scoreboard to watch the Saints defeat… and might think he was ripped off https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/chelsea-verdict-boehly-took-a-break-from-the-transfer-cart-scoreboard-to-watch-the-saints-defeat-and-might-think-he-was-ripped-off/ Tue, 30 Aug 2022 21:25:24 +0000 https://michaelkorsoutlet--2013.com/chelsea-verdict-boehly-took-a-break-from-the-transfer-cart-scoreboard-to-watch-the-saints-defeat-and-might-think-he-was-ripped-off/ TODD ​​BOEHLY took the time to play fantasy football to watch some of the real thing.

TODD ​​BOEHLY took the time to play fantasy football to watch some of the real thing.

As president, co-owner and leader of Chelsea, Boehly will have been bitterly disappointed to see his team lose.

Boehly negotiates Chelsea transfer deals two days from windowCredit: Reuters

And as the Blues’ interim sporting director, he would be forgiven for thinking he and the club are being exploited in their unprecedented summer shopping spree.

Or, at the very least, that the law of diminishing returns applies as much, if not more, in football than in any other type of business.

While Boehly and some of his fellow Chelsea managers were at St Mary’s, you can only assume others were working on their behalf on an alleged £77million deal to sign Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig.

Wesley Fofana arrived for £75million just days before, following the £62million splashed out on Marc Cucurella earlier this month.

Kalidou Koulibaly’s £33million transfer feels like an eternity, such has been the quick pace and bounty of Boehly’s cart scoreboard.

Chelsea’s defense, made up of 30-somethings Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and Koulibaly, certainly needed a refresh.

And given their ages, Gvardiol (20) and Fofana (21) could be assets for Chelsea for a decade.

But are they really nearly £70m better than Armel Bella-Kotchap, the 20-year-old centre-back who Southampton signed from German club Bochum for £8m?

The superb early tackle Bella-Kotchap produced on Raheem Sterling was just the start of another impressive performance.

Yes, SURE Chelsea and Southampton have very different goals this season. The kind of players who will improve a Blues side that won the Champions League 15 months ago are rare and therefore expensive.

But THIS Dear?

If the deal with Gvardiol materializes, we can surely assume that the Blues’ central defense should be OK for a while.

Boss Thomas Tuchel is said to remain unhappy with his midfield options. That’s why rumors of a £70million deal for Frenkie De Jong won’t go away.

Again, though, you watched Romeo Lavia more than hold on for the home side, and thought to yourself: has the world gone mad?

There’s a reason Manchester City put buy-and-sell clauses in the £10.5m deal (rising to £14m) which took the 18-year-old to St Mary’s .

If the defensive midfielder can keep adding the odd goal to everything he does – his equalizer made him the first 2004-born player to score in the Premier League – he’ll be worth much more than that very soon. Although not quite as soon as he could have, after stopping early in the second half in a sprint to make up for his own error.

City also knew what they were doing when they sold goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu to Saints for £15million on similar terms. Could he have done better than his Chelsea counterpart, Edouard Mendy, to try to stop Lavia’s shot?

Kai Havertz (an initial fee of £62m) and Hakim Ziyech (£35m) have kept up the habit of not honoring their fees (although you can’t put a price tag on Havertz’ winning goal in the Champions League).

That’s why pre-match rumors that the Blues were considering late moves for WIlfried Zaha or Neymar, in addition to or instead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s frustrating pursuit, weren’t dismissed out of hand. .

Suffice to say, of Chelsea’s summer signings so far, only £50m Raheem Sterling really fits the bill. But his opening goal was the only highlight for the Blues of a night when Southampton looked much more like a team.

If you’re Chelsea, buying players is the easy part, especially when clubs and agents see you coming a mile away, as they seem to do with Boehly.

Molding them into an effective unit is much more difficult.

Boehly has just over 48 hours of fun to enjoy. Then it’s up to Tuchel.
