As the nights draw in it looks like it’s going to be a difficult winter for the British economy. Shortages and bottlenecks are rising as the Christmas season looms, sky-high energy prices are threatening large parts of the corporate sector, and the Bank of England is hinting that interest rates could rise before the end of the year. For the first time in decades the economic buzzword is “stagflation” — that toxic combination of stagnating growth and high inflation that characterised much of the Seventies. To be fair, most of these trends are happening around the world as the global economy lurches back to life after the pandemic, triggering unexpected new bottlenecks across supply chains like a global game of whack-a-mole.

The gap from college football to the NFL is notoriously hard to bridge, but right now, as the two main men in Jacksonville lead the Jaguars to London to face Miami Dolphins, it must look particularly chasmic. The NFL’s worst team made, among their many moves for improvement this offseason, two major ones: drafting the most exciting quarterback prospect in a generation with the No1 pick and bringing in, to nurture his talents, one of the most successful head coaches in college football history. Five weeks into their respective NFL careers, Trevor Lawrence has lost more games as a professional than he had previously in his life, while Urban Meyer is already fortunate to still be in a job — and is not out of the woods yet.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The White House on Friday will lift COVID-19 travel restrictions for fully vaccinated international visitors starting Nov. 8, ending historic restrictions that had barred much of the world from entering the United States for as long as 21 months. The unprecedented travel restrictions kept millions of visitors out of the United States from China, Canada, Mexico, India, Brazil, much of Europe and elsewhere; shrunk U.S. tourism; and hurt border community economies. U.S. allies had heavily lobbied the Biden administration to lift the rules.
