This is a must for the majority of the enclosures, but the more casual Windsor Enclosure does state: "While no formal dress code applies here, we encourage racegoers to dress for the occasion" In plain speak, that's smart attire and hats are strongly suggested.

    Oregon Zoo Welcomes Newborn Mountain Goat, And He's Already on The Go

    The Oregon Zoo in Portland is celebrating a new arrival — a mountain goat kid. The zoo’s adult mountain goat, Sassy, gave birth on May 19, and the zoo shared footage of the baby goat checking out his new home. In a video shared on the zoo’s YouTube page, the new resident can be seen climbing around its habitat at only two days old. “While mothers of some species keep their newborns hidden away for several weeks, mountain goat kids are typically on their feet within minutes after birth,” the post stated. As of writing, the footage has over 100 views on YouTube. Credit: Oregon, Zoo via Storyful

    U.S. top court backs companies over worker class-action claims

    The U.S. Supreme Court delivered a blow to the rights of workers on Monday by allowing companies to require them to sign away their ability to bring class-action claims against management, agreements already in place for about 25 million employees. The justices, in a 5-4 ruling with the court's conservatives in the majority, endorsed the legality of the growing practice by companies to compel workers to sign arbitration agreements waiving their right to bring class-action claims on issues such as overtime wages or gender-based pay disparities either in court or before private arbitrators.

    Russia's RT faces three new impartiality investigations in Britain

    Britain's media regulator on Monday opened a further three investigations into Russian news channel RT to see whether it had breached impartiality rules in its reporting. Ofcom has previously warned that RT producer TV Novosti could lose its right to broadcast in Britain after it said it had found a number of cases of impartiality following a nerve agent attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in March. The poisoning, which Britain blamed on Russia, strained relations between the two countries and led to the biggest Western expulsions of diplomats since the height of the Cold War.
