Listen to this article The race was delayed by one hour and five minutes due to torrential rain falling in the build-up to the original 8pm start time, but the result was actually not confirmed at the chequered flag as Perez faces a post-race investigation for a safety car infringement. That had been called into action twice, with three virtual safety car activations also taking place in the wet-to-dry thriller. At the start, Leclerc and Perez made identical reactions from the front row but the Red Bull accelerated better as they raced away from the line and he swept past the Ferrari to comfortably seize the lead into Turn 1. Behind, Carlos Sainz and Lewis Hamilton went side-by-side through Turn 1 and made light contact just ahead of the Turn 2 apex, which sent the Mercedes wide and down to third, the incident reviewed by the stewards by deemed not worthy of a full investigation. The same thing happened for Max Verstappen cutting the first corner after he had … [Read more...] about Singapore GP: Perez wins, but faces post-race investigation
Why does sky turn purple
Mick Schumacher declared George Russell had “killed” his chances of a points finish in Singapore, the Briton creating a “lose-lose situation for both of us”. Running just outside the top 10 in what was proving to be a race of attrition on a wet Marina Bay circuit, Russell and Schumacher almost had their names added to the casualty list when they collided at Turn 1. Russell, frustrated at being stuck behind the German – “Schumacher’s defending like it’s the race of his life, crikey” – tried to outbrake him into the corner. That put him on the wet part of the track with the Mercedes driver keen to get back onto the dry line, only Schumacher was there. Russell connected with the Haas, both drivers forced into the pits with punctures . “Unfortunately, contact with George killed our race,” Schumacher said. “It was just the wrong place to try it, it was a bit too risky. “I understand him because he wants to get up front and of course he’s a good bit faster than us. “But we … [Read more...] about Mick Schumacher ‘has to fight as if it were for the championship’, or his future
Sorry, but your browser does not support the video tag. (BPT) - With rising energy costs and extreme weather becoming almost commonplace, many home and business owners are worrying about everything from being able to afford their utility bills to lengthy power outages. According to an analysis of U.S. government data by the Associated Press, outages due to severe weather have doubled over the last 20 years, straining the country’s aging electrical grid and leading to 40 states experiencing increasingly frequent extended outages. Efforts to maintain the power grid and upgrade aging equipment are leading to higher utility costs nationwide. With the increase in electricity costs and the vulnerability of being dependent on an aging power grid, home and business owners can benefit from having more control over their energy.

It's Fat Bear Week, a pure and wonderful treat for people who need a break from the harsh realities of life. The competition champions the brown bears of Katmai National Park and Preserve as they complete their transformations from scrawny to elephantine for hibernation. With the internet watching via live Bear Cams, the contestants go beast mode on the millions of sockeye salmon that run from Bristol Bay down the Brooks River. Then it's up to voters to interpret the "fattest." "There's no real set criteria that you're supposed to vote on," said Mike Fitz, a resident naturalist with Explore.org who started the competition in 2014. "You could vote on just simply the largest bear, or look at relative fatness or consider the extenuating circumstances of each bear's life like the challenges of raising offspring." For … [Read more...] about What is Fat Bear Week? Everything to know about the big, beefy event.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina’s long-litigated photo voter identification law was appraised at the state Supreme Court on Monday. Justices heard arguments on whether it was reasonable for trial judges to throw out the law that they determined was tainted by racial bias and designed to help Republicans retain their grip on the legislature. The voter ID law approved by the General Assembly in December 2018, but it has never been enforced, as the requirement has been blocked by both federal or state courts over time. That remains the case for next month’s midterms. An attorney for the Republican legislative leaders said a majority of trial judges conducting a trial on the law last year got both facts and conclusions wrong when they struck down the law. Those judges failed to take into account the bipartisan nature of its passage and rule changes that would eliminate any disadvantage that Black voters would have in carrying a photo ID, lawyer Pete Patterson said.
