From the floods in China and Germany to the high temperatures in Canada and the northwestern states of the United States, climate change has been a major theme of the past season, with extreme weather conditions. The long-awaited and important report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to be released on Monday will attract special attention from politicians and the media.

Will it convince skeptics? Maybe not.I was surprised to read Financial Times on Thursday The scientific community is still trying to connect the extreme weather that scares people all over the world with global warming. According to reports, although 18 of the 31 “vital signs” on the planet have reached record levels. This article Written by Chelsea Bruce-Lockhart of the Financial Times Data Journalism Team.

The Tokyo Olympics is over, But this will not prevent record-breaking results. This week will bring tears and celebrations to many British families, not because of injuries on the track or bicycle collisions at the velodrome, but because young people have achieved GCSE and A-level results in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as national 4 and 5 years old and above in Scotland. This includes the Moules family. Two of our three children participated in the GCSE this year. This has caused concerns about performance inflation, especially for A-levels, Higher and Advanced Highers, because of their importance to ensuring university places.

Flutter, which reported numbers on Tuesday, has a serious epidemic, online gambling has surged, and people are trapped at home during the lockdown. Revenue in the first quarter increased by 32% compared to the same period in 2020, and its American brand FanDuel could easily become a market leader in most states where sports betting is now legal.However, a storm is coming, that is, Flutter and the Murdoch family’s Fox Corp. The value of FanDuel shares Fox will be entitled to purchase at “fair market value” in July.

Another company that has benefited from the lockdown is Deliveroo. Again, what is worrying is what will happen next. The London-based company has raised its growth forecast for this year and said last month that it expects customer spending on food delivery to increase by 60%. But as its struggle with Just Eat in the UK intensifies and regulatory pressure on the European continent increases, investors may worry about whether the loss will expand further.
