1. Britain will give up on paper bank cheques [checks] altogether.

2. The new Hayao Miyazaki project.

3. The charcuterie resistance.

4. The constitutional crisis in Nigeria.

5. Betting markets in everything: Tiger and Elin's divorce settlement, plus who will sponsor Tiger next.

6. The Paul Samuelson Memorial investment tax credit.

7. Umbrellas of altruism: pay a premium and get them blunt.

Isn’t Tiger Woods just MADE to be sponsored by Axe right now? I mean, all their ads are about hundreds of women chasing down a man with axe…that’s not just an ad for Tiger, that’s REALITY.

#3- Inspectors raided the two restaurants mentioned in that story yesterday and confiscated the uninspected bacon and head cheese. No word on what happened to the two guys behind the meat.

An ITC does not permanently increase investment–only better business prospects will do that–but merely shifts it between tax periods.
