Let's be clear up front: No one knows for sure whether Archibald Butt and Francis Davis Millet were in a romantic relationship. In the times and society in which they lived, for such a thing to become known would have meant ruin. Here's what we do know. Butt never married. Millet was estranged from his wife and had a previous relationship with a man. Butt and Millet lived together in a mansion in Washington's tony Georgetown neighborhood, where they threw parties for the city's elite - including Butt's boss, President William Howard Taft. And in the weeks before they died on the Titanic, they were vacationing together in Europe. "The enduring partnership of Butt and Millet was an early case of 'Don't ask, don't tell,' " historian Richard Davenport-Hines wrote in 2012, referring to the policy that once required gay members of the military to keep their sexuality secret. A National Park Service page for the White House memorial fountain in their honor says they were "widely … [Read more...] about Two prominent men died on the Titanic – were they secretly a couple?

Will Power avenged a bitter defeat in last year’s Detroit Grand Prix by taking the win in the final IndyCar race held around the Belle Isle Street Circuit, charging from 16th on the grid and managing his final stint to perfection to cap off his first win of the season. Advert | Become a Supporter & go ad-free Power was one of the few drivers to start the race on the harder primary tyres – which would be the preferred race tyre as it was last year. It took him less than ten laps to work his way into the top five. On lap 14, he overtook pole winner and Penske team mate Josef Newgarden – who started on the softer alternate tyres – for the race lead. Power pitted once on lap 25, going to another set of primary tyres, with the aim of stretching out his advantage before doing a shorter final stint on the alternates. His competition was not Newgarden – but Alexander Rossi , who discarded the alternate tyres after four laps and committed to a three-stop strategy.

Listen to this article Toyota, or specifically Toyota Motor Corporation Australia, has listed a document that can pique your interest if you're into old, defuncted sports cars. The automaker's Service Information and Repair Manuals website has posted a service bulletin entitled "MR2 New Air-Conditioner Kit."

Well, rumors of the Toyota MR2's return have been swirling around for quite some time – even way before the launch of the new-generation Supra in 2019 .

Listen to this article Silverstone returned to hosting MotoGP back in 2010, having last done so in 1985 before the series moved to Donington Park between 1986 and 2009. When MotoGP returned to Silverstone it used the International Pit Straight – now known as the Hamilton Straight – and the Wing paddock complex. But in 2013, MotoGP moved to the old Copse paddock and has remained there for every edition of the British GP since – ostensibly owing to issues with the size of the Wing complex in housing MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3. But along with announcing early August dates for next year, MotoGP has also confirmed it will return to the Wing complex. A press release from the series says part of Silverstone’s Phase 2 project to install more solar panels on the Wing, which coincides with MotoGP’s push to make its events more environmentally sustainable.

Listen to this article With FP3 being run in the daylight in windier and dustier conditions than Friday, combined time improvements were few and far between on Saturday afternoon. Friday pacesetter Alex Rins on the Suzuki set the early pace in the session with a 1m55.562s, before Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro took over with a 1m55.016s. Rins would return to the top of the order with a 1m54.803s, and the 2022 Suzuki continues to look like a weapon following a strong pre-season and opening day to the campaign. Reigning world champion Quartararo took over top spot with a 1m54.794s on his factory Yamaha with just under 20 minutes to go. Fellow Frenchman Johann Zarco on the Pramac Ducati – which is running the full 2022-spec engine and not the hybrid 2021/2022 version the factory team duo are using – edged ahead with a 1m54.441s. This lap was an improvement on his best from Friday, though still only kept him in 16th on the combined order and out of a Q2 spot.

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 3 UVALDE, Texas — In a cemetery on the edge of Uvalde, a cluster of fresh graves had been carved from the parched, rocky earth. The dead were claiming new ground: No sod had been laid. No trees had taken root to shield against an unrelenting South Texas sun. Uvalde had weathered loss, but never anything like this. The community had crossed into unfamiliar terrain, as the massacre at Robb Elementary School created a marathon of mourning that started with vigils in the hours after the May 24 attack and continued for weeks until the last victims were buried. On June 3, Javier and Gloria Cazares buried their daughter Jacklyn in one of the graves. On June 8, they returned for the burial of their niece, Annabell Rodriguez. A few days later, on a Sunday evening, they were back again with Jacklyn’s older sister, Jazmin. They had just been to the visitation for another classmate who was killed. … [Read more...] about The excruciating echo of grief in Uvalde
Listen to this article The three-time Supercars champion came into the weekend 81 points behind teammate and points leader Will Power, but says that with four rounds remaining – with over 200 points on offer – he still has a chance of overhauling the six drivers ahead of him in the points race. “Yeah, the belief is there, absolutely,” said the 29-year-old New Zealander. “I've said it all along, I feel like a little bit of an underdog in this. There's no reason why we can't go on a run. “These are four tracks that I really enjoy [coming up],” he said with reference to his 2021 performances. “Gateway we ran fourth. Portland I outqualified my teammates. Feel like our cars are quicker there this year. No reason why we can't be fast there again. “Laguna, I love that track. I just made a mess of qualifying – as I did all last year! So, really excited for this final run. “Anything can happen. It's IndyCar. We have a solid week, focus on ourselves, who knows what will happen? … [Read more...] about McLaughlin remains convinced he can win 2022 IndyCar title
Formula 1 president Stefano Domenicali is very much open to keeping Sebastian Vettel in the fold after he retires. Vettel has been a part of the Formula 1 grid since 2007, but at the Hungarian Grand Prix, he announced to the world that the 2022 season will be his last in the series. Having not had the chance to go racing in a competitive car since 2019, Vettel’s father recently confirmed that racing near the back with Aston Martin had accelerated retirement thoughts for his son, the 2022 Austrian Grand Prix proving to be the low point. Vettel has, over the past few years, found a second purpose for his Formula 1 career, that being to use the platform to speak out about environmental and social issues, while also setting up various projects of his own to address his concerns. Recently, Vettel’s compatriot and six-time Formula 1 race winner, Ralf Schumacher, claimed that some of the series’ higher-ups, including Domenicali, were glad that Vettel is leaving because of how … [Read more...] about Stefano Domenicali would ‘welcome’ Sebastian Vettel in another F1 role
