EU powergrab FAILS: US to massively invest in City – Brussels’ plan flops

A new survey of 68 large American companies that employ more than 275,000 people in the UK found businesses have a “very high” confidence in Britain as a place to do business. Around 60 percent said they would increase investment in the UK.

Anna Marrs, a group president at American Express, said the geographical position and UK timezones make it an “ideal jumping-off point” for their operations outside the US.

She said: “The combination of a strong and multilingual talent base, a supportive business environment, and geographical and timezone advantages continues to make the UK an ideal jumping-off point for our operations outside the US.”

Dan Glaser, president & chief executive of Marsh McLennan, added: “The UK is a large and dynamic economy with outstanding regulatory and educational systems.

“Top talent from around the world want to work and live in Britain.”

While Duncan Edwards, chief executive of BritishAmerican Business, said the UK is “very well-positioned” to attract companies from the US.

He told the Financial Times: “The UK is very well-positioned to continue to attract companies from the US and from around the globe.

“But this positive outlook will be enhanced by a comprehensive trade deal with the US, a more positive political and trading relationship with the EU, and more business-friendly domestic policies.”

Jonathan Frick, a partner at Bain in London, said US investors had maintained the majority of their workforce despite Britain’s departure from the European Union.

Nearly 40 percent of companies said the top priority should be to improve the political and economic relationship with the EU.

This would allow the UK to maintain its top ranking as a destination for US investment.

International Trade Secretary, Liz Truss, is expected to travel to the US this week to meet officials.

This financial boost comes just months after several banks – including Morgan Stanley, Barclays and Goldman Sachs, moved senior bankers out of London.

These firms looked to centres in Frankfurt, Paris and Milan due to the lack of provisions in the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

Many companies called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to agree a financial services deal with the EU although Brussels has stalled on doing so in order to pressure the UK over elements of the agreement.

The UK and EU agreed on a memorandum of understanding in March to continue the cooperation between financial regulators but Brussels did not grant equivalence.

The survey was carried out by US/UK trade association BritishAmerican Business and consultancy Bain.

It questioned businesses from sectors such as financial services and manufacturing to technology, media and telecommunications.

'EU's talking rubbish!' Britons FURIOUS as Brussels fails in court row with AstraZeneca

The pharmaceutical company welcomed a court decision that found the EU does not have exclusive rights or priority over vaccine jabs manufactured by the company. Following the decision, Britons revelled in the EU’s failed court battle with the Anglo-Swedish drug company. Commenting on the Express.co.uk story, one person said: “Take that Remainers!

“The EU talking rubbish, threatening the peace in NI over article 16 and they didn’t have a leg to stand on!

“VDL proving she’s incompetent, and now a thief stealing AZ vaccines off Australia with no justification in law. I hope they sue the EU now.”

A second person said: “AstraZeneca can now counter sue the EU for billions in damages for reputation and false accusations.”

A third said: “Now the world can see how incompetent the EU really are, and shown so by their own court. I bet it hurts!”

The EU initiated court proceedings against the company amid a row over a shortfall of vaccine doses to the bloc.

Brussels had also accused the company of using plants on the continent to fulfil its supplies to the UK rather than upholding obligations made to the Commission.

The company was expected to supply 300 million doses to the EU in the first six months of the year but was forced to scale back delivery due to production issues.

The EU had sought a court order to ensure AstraZeneca delivered 120 million vaccine doses by the end of June.

“AstraZeneca has fully complied with its agreement with the European Commission and we will continue to focus on the urgent task of supplying an effective vaccine, which we are delivering at no profit to help protect people in Europe and around the world from the deadliest pandemic in a generation.”

The EU also welcomed the judge’s decision and insisted the company had failed to match its obligations to the bloc.

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said: “This decision confirms the position of the Commission: AstraZeneca did not live up to the commitments it made in the contract.

“It is good to see that an independent judge confirms this.

“This shows that our European vaccination campaign not only delivers for our citizens day by day.

“It also demonstrates, that it was founded on a sound legal basis.”

The judgement also acknowledged the company had suffered severe difficulties in producing and exporting vaccines.

The company reiterated its desire to work with the EU to access key vaccine supplies at no profit for AstraZeneca.

Olympic champ Tony Ervin fails to advance at US swim trials

Ervin made history in 2016 as the oldest individual swimming champion in Olympic history.

OMAHA, Neb. — Reigning Olympic champion Tony Ervin failed to advance from the preliminaries of the 50-meter freestyle at the U.S. swimming trials Saturday.

Ervin, who went by Anthony when he won gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics, returned for one more trials at age 40 knowing he had little chance of earning a spot on the team.

He merely wanted to get as far as the final, with hopes of passing the baton to the next generation of sprinters. But Ervin managed only the 23rd-fastest time in the morning heats at 22.61 seconds — 1.21 off his winning time five years ago.

The top 16 advanced to the evening semifinals.

Ervin was a two-time gold medalist in the 50 free, tying for the top spot at the 2000 Sydney Games before improbably returning 16 years later to claim another gold at 35 — the oldest individual swimming champion in Olympic history.

Caeleb Dressel was top qualifier at 21.29, while eight-time Olympic medalist Nathan Adrian shook off a disappointing performance in the 100 free to post the third-fastest time (21.85).

The 32-year-old Adrian must finish in the top two of the 50 to make his fourth Olympics team.

In another bounce-back performance, Simone Manuel was second-fastest in the preliminaries of the women’s 50 free at 24.56.

The 2016 Olympic champion in the 100 free stunningly failed to make it past the semifinals in that event, revealing afterward that she had been diagnosed with overtraining syndrome.

Like Adrian, Manuel’s only hope of making it back to the Olympics is to finish in the top two of the 50.

Abbey Weitzeil, who won the 100 free Friday night, was fastest in the 50 free prelims at 24.50.

Shocking: Simone Manuel fails to make the final in 100 freestyle at Olympic trials

One of the top stars of the 2016 Rio Olympics for Team USA still has a chance to qualify for Tokyo games in the 50-meter freestyle.

OMAHA, Neb. — Caeleb Dressel locked up his spot for Tokyo, where he’s expected to be one of the biggest stars in the Olympic pool.

Simone Manuel got left behind.

In the biggest surprise yet at the U.S. swimming trials, the defending Olympic women’s champion in the 100-meter freestyle failed to advance from the semifinals Thursday night.

Manuel, who tied for the gold at the Rio Olympics to become the first Black female ever to win an individual swimming event, finished fourth in the first semifinal heat at 54.17 seconds.

She just missed a spot in Friday night’s final when five swimmers went faster in the second semifinal heat, with Erika Brown taking the eighth spot in 54.15 — two-hundredths faster than Manuel.

“I’m an Olympic champion,” a tearful Manuel said, seeking solace in her 2016 accomplishments. “It’s still a tough pill to swallow.”

There were no such concerns for Dressel, who romped to victory in the men’s 100 free in 47.39.

He finally got a chance to shine on Day 5 of the trials after a long week of waiting. When Dressel saw a “1” beside his name, he hopped on the lane rope, splashed the water and pumped his arms to whip up the crowd.

“It’s a huge weight off my shoulders,” Dressel said. “I’m excited to get the job done and move forward.”

In the wake of Michael Phelps’ retirement, Dressel has emerged as the next big thing in men’s swimming. After winning two golds medals at the 2016 Rio Games, he really shined at the last two world championships.

In 2017, Dressel captured seven gold medals in Budapest — joining Phelps and Mark Spitz as the only swimmers to win that many races at a major international meet.

Dressel followed up with six golds and two silvers at the 2019 championships in Gwangju, becoming only the second swimmer to take as many as eight medals after Phelps.

A giant picture of Dressel adorns the outside of the downtown Omaha arena where the trials are being held.

“All the fluff that comes with it, your name on the building, is cool,” he said. “But it adds a little bit different pressure to it.”

While Dressel isn’t expected to swim enough events in Tokyo to challenge Phelps’ record of eight golds from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he could be in the mix for as many seven medals if he’s included on all the relays.

Dressel isn’t thinking that far ahead. He’s still got two more individual events at the trials, and he’s heavily favored in both.

“You can’t win five, six or seven medals if you don’t qualify for the events,” he said. “I’m focused on qualifying right now.”

A fading star of the American team is still in the mix for Tokyo.

Thirty-six-year-old Ryan Lochte advanced to the final of the 200 individual medley, his only realistic chance to qualify for his fifth Olympics and redeem himself for the embarrassment of Rio, where he lied about being robbed at gunpoint during a boisterous night on the town.

But Lochte has his work cut out for him. Michael Andrew dominated the semifinals with a time of 1:55.26 — fastest in the world this year. Lochte was the sixth-fastest qualifier at 1:58.65, nearly 3 1/2 seconds behind Andrew.

Only the top two will make the Olympic team Friday.

At least Lochte made it to the final.

Manuel’s failure to advance in the 100 free means she won’t be in the mix for the relays, either. She still has a chance to qualify for the team in the 50 free — an event she took silver in at Rio as part of a four-medal haul.

Overcome by emotions, Manuel said she arrived in Omaha knowing it would be a struggle just to make the team because of health and emotional issues. She conceded that the racial turmoil since George Floyd’s death took a toll on her.

“That’s what’s giving me peace,” she said. “I know I did everything I possibly could to even be here, and that makes me proud. I continued to stay strong during this process even when there were times when I wanted to give up.”

Natalie Hinds and Olivia Smoliga were the top qualifiers in 53.55. Allison Schmitt, who already made the team in the 200 free, advanced to the final with the sixth-best time (54.08).

In the men’s 200 breaststroke, Nic Fink made the Olympics for the first time at age 27, winning with a time of 2:07.55 in a 1-2 finish with club teammate Andrew Wilson.

Fink failed to finish in the top two at either the 2012 or 2016 trials, and he had another heartbreak with a third-place showing in the 100 breast this year.

Now, finally, he’s got his long-sought spot on the Olympic team.

“It’s something I can’t really describe,” Fink said. “Relief is only the beginning of what I’m feeling right now. It’s a long journey to come here. I’ve had so much support and help. I’m so grateful for this opportunity and to come back after getting third in the 100.”

Wilson, who swims with Fink on the Athens Bulldog Swim Club in Georgia, earned a likely second individual event at the Tokyo Games with a runner-up finish in 2:08.32. Wilson also finished second in the 100 breast.

“It’s really fun to see it pay off for Andrew and I,” Fink said.

Kevin Cordes, who made the 2016 Olympic team in both breaststroke events, came up short this time. He was a distant fourth, nearly 2 seconds behind Wilson.

Hali Flickinger won the 200 butterfly to expand her program for Tokyo. She already had a runner-up finish in the 400 individual medley.

Flickinger finished seventh in the 200 fly at the Rio Olympics. She’s hoping to contend for a medal after moving to Arizona to swim for Bob Bowman,

“It’s helped tremendously, and my swimming is really showing that,” Flickinger said. “I love the group that I train with every single day, along with Bob. I’m relaly grateful.”

The U.S. team added another first-time Olympian when Bobby Finke of Clearwater, Florida won the men’s 800 freestyle, an event that will make its Olympic debut in Tokyo.

He covered 16 laps in 7:48.22, holding off runner-up Michael Brinegar (7:49.94). Ross Dant just missed an Olympic spot, finishing a mere 72-hundredths behind Brinegar in a thrilling finish.

Olympic gold medalists Ryan Murphy and Lilly King were top qualifiers in their semifinals events.

Murphy led the way in the 200 backstroke at 1:55.60, setting him up for another Olympic event after his win in the 100 back. He was a double gold-medalist in those races at Rio, and the American men haven’t lost a backstroke event since the 1992 Barcelona Games.

Likewise, it was King advancing in the 200 breaststroke at 2:22.73, which she hopes to add to her Olympic schedule after winning the 100 breast.

Ryan Lochte fails to advance in first event at US trials, drops out of another

Lochte is hoping to make it to one more Olympics to erase the stigma of an incident at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, where he lied about being robbed at gunpoint.

OMAHA, Neb. — Olympic champion Ryan Lochte failed to advance from the preliminaries of the 200-meter freestyle on Monday, his first event of the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.

The 36-year-old Lochte, attempting to make his fifth Olympic team, posted a time of 1 minute, 49.23 seconds — only good enough for 25th place overall.

The top 16 advanced to the evening semifinals, led by Kieran Smith at 1:46.54. Caeleb Dressel was second in 1:46.63.

Smith won the 400 free on Sunday to earn his first trip to the Olympics.

Lochte was also entered Monday in the 100 backstroke, but he scratched that event. Defending Olympic champion Ryan Murphy easily advanced from the preliminaries, as did 36-year-old Matt Grevers, the 2012 gold medalist.

Even though Lochte initially entered six events at the trials, it appears the 200 individual medley is the only race in which he has any realistic shot of earning a trip to Tokyo. He scratched the 400 IM on Sunday.

Lochte has won 12 Olympic medals, including six golds. Now married with two children, he hopes to make it to one more Olympics to erase the stigma of an incident at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, where he lied about being robbed at gunpoint.

Britons furious as easyJet cancels holidays and fails to offer alternative flights

If aasyjet cancels all flights to a destination, a replacement flight with another airline should be provided.

In esyjet’s latest communication, it only stated that “If there are no easyJet flights available to get you to your destination within 24 hours, you have the option to transfer to another airline, take a train, bus or hire a car.”

However, it said passengers are responsible for booking the alternative transport and a refund will only be made for “reasonable transport costs.”

A Civil Aviation Authority spokesperson said: “Passengers who have seen their flights cancelled should be offered the choice of reimbursement for cancelled flights, alternate travel arrangements under comparable conditions at the earliest opportunity which includes flights on other airlines, or a new flight at a later date at the passenger’s convenience.

US beach volleyball icon fails to qualify for Tokyo Olympics

Kerri Walsh Jennings had competed for the United States at every summer Olympics since the 2000 Sydney games.

Three-time beach volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings was defeated in her bid to reach a sixth Olympics when she and partner Brooke Sweat lost in a qualifying match Wednesday in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

The early-round loss to the Netherlands means the U.S. pair could not overtake fellow Americans Kelly Claes and Sarah Sponcil on the international tour point list. Two-time Olympic medalist April Ross and her partner, Alix Klineman, have already clinched a berth in Tokyo, and there is a quota of two teams for each country in each of the women’s and men’s fields.

“It’s a terrible, terrible feeling,” Walsh Jennings said after the match. “It’s been a really rough year, and to lose in a qualifier, it feels really hard right now.”

Walsh Jennings, who won gold in Athens, Beijing and London with Misty May-Treanor and bronze in Rio de Janeiro with Ross, also played on the U.S. indoor team at the Sydney Games in 2000. She and Sweat had been in position to qualify for Tokyo during most of the pandemic-extended qualifying period before Claes and Sponcil won an FIVB event in Sochi, Russia, last week — their first international gold medal.

To retake the lead, Walsh Jennings and Sweat would have needed to at least get to the bronze medal match this weekend in Ostrava and hope that Claes and Sponcil didn’t reach the semifinals.

“Not this time,” Walsh Jennings said. “It’s a really hard day for us, so I think we’ll feel the pain.”

Claes, 25, and Sponcil, 24, will be the youngest team to represent the United States in the Olympic beach volleyball tournament.

The two U.S. men’s Olympic berths are still in contention in Ostrava, with three-time Olympian Jake Gibb and his partner, Taylor Crabb, in the lead and 2008 gold medalist Phil Dalhausser holding down the second spot with his partner, Nick Lucena.

Tri Bourne and Trevor Crabbe need a strong showing — and some help — to pass one of the two leading teams.

Kansas City Southern sticks to Canadian National after Canadian Pacific fails to raise bid

Kansas City Southern sticks to Canadian National after Canadian Pacific fails to raise bid© Reuters. FILE PHOTO: A freight train of the Kansas City Southern (KCS) Railway Company is pictured in Toluca, Mexico October 1, 2018. REUTERS/Edgard Garrido/File Photo

(Reuters) -Kansas City Southern on Friday reiterated that Canadian National Railway’s offer was “superior” after Canadian Pacific (NYSE:) Railway refused to raise its bid, moving a step closer to creating the largest ever merger of North American railways by transaction value.

The Canadian rivals have been locked in a takeover battle for the U.S. railroad operator for two months to create the first railway spanning the United States, Mexico and Canada, as they stand to benefit from a recent pick-up in trade.

Kansas City Southern (NYSE:) last week accepted Canadian National’s $ 33.6 billion offer, upending a $ 29 billion deal with its competitor Canadian Pacific.

The U.S. railroad on Friday said it paid Canadian Pacific a breakup fee of $ 700 million, which would be reimbursed by Canadian National.

Canadian Pacific said on Friday it was willing to re-engage with Kansas City, hoping that the rival bid would be shot down by the U.S. Surface Transportation Board (STB), a regulator that oversees railroad companies.

Canadian National’s deal has recently run into regulatory hurdles, with the STB having denied its motion for approval of a voting trust earlier this week. The U.S. Department of Justice had also said last week that Canadian National’s bid for Kansas City appears to pose greater risks to competition.

Canadian National and Kansas City said they expect to gain all the required regulatory approvals, including that from STB.

Kansas City said the deal is expected to close in the second half of next year, following which its shareholders will own 12.6% of the combined company.

Churchill Downs suspends Bob Baffert after Kentucky Derby-winning horse fails drug test

By Gary B. Graves, AP Sports Writer — Churchill Downs suspended trainer Bob Baffert from entering horses at the track and suggested that it would invalidate Medina Spirit’s Kentucky Derby victory if the results of a failed postrace drug test are upheld.The track said in a statement Sunday that failure to comply with the rules and medication protocols jeopardizes the safety of horses and jockeys, the sport’s integrity and the Derby’s reputation.

“Churchill Downs will not tolerate it,” the statement said. “Given the seriousness of the alleged offense, Churchill Downs will immediately suspend Bob Baffert, the trainer of Medina Spirit, from entering any horses at Churchill Downs Racetrack.

“To be clear, if the findings are upheld, Medina Spirit’s results in the Kentucky Derby will be invalidated and Mandaloun will be declared the winner.”

The only horse to be disqualified for medication after winning the Derby is Dancer’s Image in 1968.

Churchill Downs’ announcement comes after Baffert announced the failed drug test, which he vowed to fight “tooth and nail.” Medina Spirit is Baffert’s fifth horse to fail a drug test in a year.

Flanked by his attorney Craig Robertson in a morning news conference at Churchill Downs on Sunday, Baffert said his barn was told that Medina Spirit was found to have 21 picograms of the steroid betamethasone, double the legal threshold in Kentucky racing, in a postrace sample in the latest doping scandal for horse racing and arguably the sport’s premier trainer.

“I got the biggest gut-punch in racing, for something I didn’t do,” he said.

Baffert said his camp received the word of the positive test from Kentucky officials on Saturday. Baffert said Medina Spirit has not been officially disqualified from the Derby, though that still could happen after other tests and processes are completed.

“This shouldn’t have happened,” Baffert said. “There’s a problem somewhere. It didn’t come from us.”

Betamethasone is the same drug that was found in the system of Gamine, another Baffert-trained horse who finished third in the Kentucky Oaks last September.

Baffert denied any wrongdoing and said he did not know how Medina Spirit could have tested positive. He said Medina Spirit has never been treated with betamethasone and called it “a complete injustice.”

“I don’t feel embarrassed, I feel like I was wronged,” said Baffert, adding that he was going to be transparent with the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.

“We’re going to show them everything. One thing about it in California, everything is documented every day what the horse gets. This horse was never treated with that. He’s a great horse, he doesn’t deserve this. He ran a gallant race.”

Medina Spirit won the Kentucky Derby on May 1 by a half-length over Mandaloun, giving Baffert his record-setting seventh victory in the race that starts the Triple Crown season. Medina Spirit is still expected to race in the Preakness, the Triple Crown’s second jewel, on Saturday.

The colt galloped Sunday at Churchill Downs and is expected to leave the track with stablemate Concert Tour and head to Baltimore on Monday.

Baffert was planning to saddle Medina Spirit and Concert Tour in the Preakness, going for a record eighth victory in the second jewel of the Triple Crown. Except for 2020 when the races were run out of order due to the coronavirus pandemic, Baffert is undefeated with a Derby winner in the Preakness, which holds its post position draw Monday.

He heads north under another cloud of scrutiny.

Last month, Baffert won an appeals case before the Arkansas Racing Commission, which had suspended him for 15 days for a pair of positive drug tests involving two of his horses that won at Oaklawn Park on May 2, 2020. The horses tested positive for lidocaine, a painkiller, which Baffert said they were exposed to inadvertently.On Sunday, Baffert was adamant that Medina Spirit was not given betamethasone. He planned to submit hair, blood and DNA samples as part of the process, and stressed that his operation has been careful in following protocols.

But as Baffert insisted that horse racing can do better preventing doping, he also acknowledged the spotlight he’s under from the latest episode.

“I’m not a conspiracy theorist,” he said. “I know everybody is not out to get me, but there’s definitely something wrong. Why is it happening? You know, there’s problems in racing, but it’s not Bob Baffert.”

The New York Times said in November 2020 that Baffert-trained horses have failed at least 29 drug tests in his four-decade career.

“I’m worried about our sport,” Baffert said. “Our sport, we’ve taken a lot of hits as a sport. These are pretty serious accusations here, but we’re going to get to the bottom of it and find out. We know we didn’t do it.”

Neymar fails to score for a seventh Champions League

Big-spending Paris Saint-Germain failed to manage a shot on target as they went out of the Champions League with a 2-0 defeat at Man City – and fans know that will mean a summer of speculation that Neymar will return to Barcelona.

The Brazil striker’s pre-match bluster, which began immediately after last week’s 2-1 home defeat, came to nothing as last season’s finalists went out with a whimper at the City of Manchester Stadium, going out to two goals from Riyad Mahrez – a player born in France who rejected PSG as a youngster.

City had never reached the final before, and their inexperience was tested even less once Angel di Maria – formerly of City’s arch-rivals, Manchester United – was sent off shortly after Mahrez’s 63rd-minute second.

While City can look forward to the final in Istanbul at the end of the month and an imminent Premier League title, Paris must hope Lille, who are a point above them in the Ligue 1 table, slip up in the final three games of the season to give them a chance of being domestic champions again.

“We believed until the red card,” Paris midfielder Marco Verratti somewhat fancifully claimed, despite the fact that his side needed to score three goals in little more than 20 minutes at that point against a team on a run of six successive Champions League wins.

“We created a lot of chances. We played a lot better than them but then we conceded a goal from the first chance they had, like in the first leg. But that’s how it is when you play big teams.”

In reality, the main manifestation PSG’s performance has created is inevitable rumors about the most expensive player in the world’s future, which many feel could be at Barcelona, where a potential partnership with Lionel Messi would surely be an enticing option for him.

“Now let the Neymar saga begin,” said one viewer, while another added: “Get ready for a Neymar-to-Barca saga for the entire summer.”

By the time he next plays in the latter stages of the Champions League, Neymar is likely to have gone more than two years since he scored against Borussia Dortmund in a 2-0 round of 16 victory in February last year.

He is 20 goals behind Kylian Mbappe and two behind on-loan Everton youngster Moise Kean among PSG’s top scorers this season, and his strike against Lens on Saturday was his first for the club in five league matches, dating back to the end of January because of a multitude of injuries and a suspension.

Neymar would almost certainly have to accept a substantial cut to his reported salary of around $ 42 million in order to return to financially-challenged Barcelona, who he left for the Parc des Princes in 2017.

Coach Mauricio Pochettino was also in the mood for generously appraising PSG’s performance while dismissing the suggestion that Mbappe’s absence through injury in Manchester had impeded them.

“That cannot be an excuse,” said the new manager. “We are a team.

“Of course, it’s unlucky he was not ready to help the team, but that’s not an excuse.

“We cannot use that excuse because the performance from the team was good.”
