Speculation that Charles Leclerc’s camp had a hand in Mattia Binotto’s resignation is wide of the mark because drivers don’t have that “much power”, says Naomi Schiff. Despite denying reports Binotto was on his way out of the door just two weeks ago, Ferrari announced on Tuesday that the Italian had handed in his resignation. It brought to an end a relationship spanning almost three decades, Binotto having started out in the Scuderia’s engine department before becoming its head and later team principal, a role he has held since 2019. There is, as to be expected, a great deal of speculation as to why the 53-year-old has decided now to quit with the general consensus being it was a case of jump rather than be pushed. As for where the push was coming from, that, it is being speculated, was partially from Leclerc’s camp. According to reports the Monégasque driver and his team were not happy with Binotto’s refusal to back him and him alone in the 2022 title race, their annoyance … [Read more...] about ‘Mattia Binotto would not have lasted so long if he was in another sport’
Legitimate expectation case law
Officials at a Houston area school district hired an elementary school teacher they knew was under investigation for allegedly abusing a student at a previous post, ABC 13 reported Thursday. In spring this year, Melody LaPointe, 47, was offered a job at Goose Creek CISD's Bonnie B. Hopper Primary School in Highlands, Texas, located about 30 minutes east of Houston. LaPointe started at the school in August but was placed on administrative leave earlier this month, when Liberty County Constables arrested her at the school as classes were letting out for the day on Nov. 16. According to ABC 13 , Hopper Primary parents received an email from the district the following day stating "the cause for arrest…is not affiliated with Goose Creek CISD in any way," and that the teacher had been "placed on administrative leave with pay, pending the outcome of an investigation." LaPointe and two former instructional assistants who worked with her are now facing charges for four counts of … [Read more...] about Houston-area school district knowingly hired teacher accused of abusing student

Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 9 CHATHAM, Va. - The land came first, 5,557 acres of forest purchased two years after the Revolutionary War by a Virginia slaveholder and future congressman. The mansion came next - a symbol of fortune and power built by enslaved workers, who spent seven years assembling the stately home brick by brick until it was finally finished in 1825. "It's been occupied by a Walter Coles and his wife ever since then," says the latest Walter Coles - the fifth of that name - as he sits in the same parlor his father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great-grandfather all sat in before him, recounting the history of Coles Hill as his predecessors look down from portraits on all four walls. Coles, 84, is one of countless Americans who still benefit from the wealth accumulated by America's 18th- and 19th-century slaveholders. And his … [Read more...] about Their wealth was built on slavery. Now a new fortune lies underground.

Matt Gaetz has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for sex trafficking of a minor and other offenses. Joel Greenberg, former tax collector for Seminole County, was accused of stalking a political opponent, public corruption, making fake licenses and scheming to submit false claims for a federal loan. He pleaded guilty to six federal crimes, including identity theft, stalking, wire fraud and conspiracy to bribe a public official. Prosecutors said he paid at least one girl to have sex with him and other men. “Nothing justifies my actions. My conduct is so shameful. I feel remorse for what I’ve done,” Greenberg said Thursday before U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell sentenced him in an Orlando courtroom. Greenberg also directly apologized to the residents of Seminole County, … [Read more...] about Gaetz friend gets 11 years for sex crime, other counts
Listen to this article Morgan has spent 11 seasons in the BTCC, 10 of them with his family’s Ciceley Motorsport operation, which announced its pull-out from the series on Monday in order to focus on historic racing. But, as predicted by Motorsport.com on Monday , Morgan is to race as part of an expanded four-car line-up at WSR. The Sunbury team supplied Ciceley with two newly built BMW 3 Series machines prior to the 2021 season, and these will return to WSR, which has also acquired one of Ciceley’s TBL entrants’ licences in order to increase its squad to four. “We’re just going to run one of them,” WSR boss Dick Bennetts told Motorsport.com about the Ciceley BMWs. “We’re gearing up to go from three to four cars, but we won’t be gearing up to go to five. “No doubt the phone will start ringing tonight or tomorrow once people know we’ve got them.” And Bennetts also quipped: “I’ve asked Motorbase if they’re interested, because they want a rear-wheel-drive car for … [Read more...] about Morgan joins BMW squad WSR for 2023 BTCC season

The celebrity comeback has become a cliche in recent years - an expected stop on the trolley car of fame, a required slide in a talent manager's PowerPoint presentation. Comebacks rely on our nostalgia but, even more, on the entertainment industry's need to fill endless hours of programming time. They're business now. Then there's the return of Brendan Fraser. This one feels good. This one feels personal. Fraser plays a very big man in a little movie called "The Whale," which opens in theaters Dec. 9. When it premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September, the actor received an eight-minute standing ovation that left him and the audience in tears. Best actor trophy talk immediately ensued, and three months later he's still the bookmaker's choice, in part because no one outside festival audiences has seen "The Whale" and in part because everyone seems happy to have Brendan Fraser back. Which prompts a question: Why? He never actually went away. The truth is that we've come … [Read more...] about Brendan Fraser’s comeback says less about him than it says about us
