Strangers Who Lined Up To Pay Tribute To The Queen Over Love Actually
google news

A budding romance between strangers who met in line to pay their respects to the Queen may have begun at a time that has been compared to romantic comedy Love Actually.

Royal mourners Jack and Zoe, who have ‘a lot in common’, hit it off in the five-mile queue, which currently has a 13-hour wait time according to the live tracker of the government at 10:30 p.m. last night.

Zoe said meeting Jack was a ‘blessing in disguise’ as they entertained each other with ‘chips and talk’ – and they now plan to watch the Queen’s funeral together on Monday.

She said she was going to have “mixed emotions” at Monday’s historic and sad funeral and wanted to “share this moment with someone else”.

Twitter users were quick to applaud their budding romance – with some suggesting a spiritual successor to Richard Curtis’ beloved rom-com Love Actually: ‘Queue Actually’.

Channel 4’s Minnie Stephenson, who interviewed the couple, tweeted: ‘Call me tail-pid’, adding a burning heart emoji.

“We met at 10.30pm last night and went through the whole process ‘until now’,” Jack told Channel 4 News’ Minnie Stephenson this afternoon with a smile on his face.

“We actually have a lot in common,” he said as Zoe looked at Jack with a smile and agreed, “Yeah.”

The Channel 4 New reporter asked the couple if they would keep in touch after paying their respects at Westminster Hall.

Zoe quickly replied, “Yeah, one hundred percent.”

“We’re going to the funeral together on Monday,” Jack added.

“It’s going to be mixed emotions,” Zoe said. “And it’s something that’s part of the story, so we want to be there and share this moment with someone else.”

Another suggested title by Hugh Norwood was: “Four Queues and a Funeral”.

Witty pun writer Declan Cashin joked: ‘Hope they remember the grief pill afterwards.

Earlier today, Simon Crook tweeted: “Hope everyone realizes that Richard Curtis and Working Title are probably thinking about a Love, Actually style ensemble comedy-drama called The Queue. “

However, in what can be seen as a strange case of life imitating art, some users tweeted the idea before Channel 4 published their interview online.

Lynsey James and Amanda Jennings brainstormed a similar idea two days ago on Thursday – which started out as a four-part BBC drama starring Keeley Hawes – but then quickly turned into an ensemble piece’ Richard Curtis a bit like Love Actually where the individual stories all merge towards the end of the queue”.

Comedian Dara Ó Briain tweeted yesterday afternoon: ‘Pitch idea: ‘Meet Queuete’ about a guy and a girl who fall in love in an 11 waiting to see the Queen. Netflix already very interested.

“Things get rough in Episode 6 when she goes for coffee and meets David Beckham.”

However, Twitter user Marty Perkins had a different angle, instead portraying the queue as a sentimental John Lewis Christmas advertisement.

He wrote: ‘John Lewis’ ad agency furiously rewrote the Christmas advert so it’s about 2 people meeting in #TheQueue and ending up spending Christmas together. On a slow piano version of 500 Miles from The Proclaimers.’

Jaguars Vs Eagles Livestream: How To Watch Nfl Week 4 From Anywhere In The Us
google news

The Philadelphia Eagles are flying high with a perfect 3-0 record heading into Week 4, with quarterback Jalen Hurts looking like an MVP candidate. Perhaps the only fan base more excited about their team after three weeks than the Eagles faithful resides in Jacksonville. After winning just three games last year under the disastrous and embarrassing management of Urban Meyer, the Jaguars have righted the ship under head coach Doug Pederson, who, it should be noted, coached the Eagles until their only Super Bowl title in 2017. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence looked lost last year as a rookie but got off to a strong start in Year 2 as the Jags 2 -1 find themselves in first place in the AFC South. The Eagles and Jaguars will kick off in Philadelphia on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT) on CBS.

The game will air on CBS in the Jacksonville and Philadelphia areas (according to 506 Sports) on live tv broadcast services, but there may be times when you are blocked due to an internet location issue or just want an extra layer of privacy for streaming. There is an option that does not require subscribing to something like NFL Sunday Ticket Where NFL+or search the Internet for a basic website: you can use a virtual private network, or vpn.

For Week 4 of the NFL season, the Eagles host the Jaguars at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT). The game will take place in Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field.

How to watch the Jaguars vs Eagles game online from anywhere using a VPN

If you are unable to view the game locally due to incorrectly enforced blackout restrictions, you may need another way to watch the game and this is where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to prevent your ISP from throttling your game day speeds by encrypting your traffic. Plus, it’s a great idea when you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and connections.

With a VPN, you can virtually change your location on your phone, tablet, or laptop to access the game. So if your ISP or mobile carrier has blocked you with an IP address that says incorrectly your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can fix this problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, unobstructed zone. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPNmake it really easy to do.

Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in all countries where VPNs are legal, including the United States and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You need to make sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even when VPNs are legal, the streaming service can terminate the account of anyone it believes is circumventing properly applied blackout restrictions.

Looking for other options? Be sure to check out some of the other great VPN offers is taking place at the moment.

ExpressVPN is our current best VPN for people who want a reliable and secure VPN, and it works on a variety of devices. It’s normally $13 a month, and you can sign up for ExpressVPN and save 49% and get three months of free access – the equivalent of $6.67 a month – if you get an annual subscription.

Note that ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Stream the Jaguars vs Eagles game live in the US

This week’s Jaguars vs Eagles game is on CBS, so in addition to a VPN, you’ll need a live tv streaming service which carries a local CBS affiliate that airs the game. The cheapest service is Paramount Plus. You’ll need to be on Paramount Plus’ Essential or Premium plans to watch the game (or an older “limited ads” plan), and you’ll need to switch your VPN to the Jacksonville or Philadelphia areas.

Paramount Plus has two main options: Essential for $5 per month ($50 per year if paid annually) and Premium for $10 per month ($100 per year if paid annually). Both offer live NFL games, though the cheaper Essential option lacks live CBS streams, ad-free content for on-demand streaming, or the ability to download shows to watch offline later.

Since either option works for NFL games, if all you want is football, the cheaper Essential option would be the way to go.

Read our Paramount Plus review.

Many others live tv streaming services also broadcast local CBS stations, namely YouTube TV, Hulu Plus Live TV, DirecTV Stream and FuboTV. They all cost more than Paramount Plus, but they also offer more channels, including football-specific channels like Fox, ESPN, NFL Network, and/or RedZone. Discover our guide to live tv streaming channels for more details.

  • With four variables in play – your ISP, browser, video streaming provider, and VPN – experience and success can vary.
  • Use the ExpressVPN NJ-3 (Jersey-3) node to get the Philadelphia CBS station on Paramount Plus.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as the default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for a city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after turning on your VPN and setting it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure that the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file in your account. Second, some smart TVs – like Roku – don’t have VPN apps that you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll need to install the VPN on your router or whatever mobile hotspot you use (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network will now appear in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with Smart TV services, after installing a cable network’s sports app, you will be asked to verify a numeric code or click on a link sent to your registered email address for your Smart TV . This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, as both devices will appear in the correct place.
  • And remember, browsers can often give away location despite using a VPN, so make sure you’re using a privacy-focused browser to connect to your services. We normally recommend Brave.

Asian stocks are generally down as recession fears intensify

Asian Stocks Are Generally Down As Recession Fears Intensify
google news

BANGKOK — Asian stocks were mostly down on Monday after Wall Street ended a miserable September with a 9.3% loss, the worst monthly decline since March 2020.

Tokyo rose while other regional markets declined. Shanghai was closed for the week-long Chinese National Day holiday.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 index gained 1.1% to 26,215.79 after a quarterly Bank of Japan survey showed manufacturing sentiment had darkened, reflecting rising costs, weaker yen and ongoing pandemic-related restrictions.

The main measure of the “tankan”, measuring the sentiment of large manufacturers, was plus 8, compared to plus 9 in the previous quarter. The tankan measures business sentiment by subtracting the number of companies that say business conditions are negative from those that say they are positive.

“Today’s Tankan survey suggests that while the services sector is benefiting from the diminishing virus wave, the outlook for the manufacturing sector continues to deteriorate,” said a report from Capital Economics. He noted that this was the third consecutive drop in sentiment for the Third World. greater economy.

The BOJ has kept interest rates below zero in a longstanding effort to encourage inflation and contain deflation as the country ages and its population shrinks. This has kept the value of the yen low against the US dollar, which has strengthened as the Federal Reserve raises rates to combat decades-high inflation.

The dollar was trading at 145.04 yen early Monday, down from 144.68 yen late Friday. The euro was at 97.98 cents, down from 97.96 cents.

Elsewhere in Asia, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index fell 0.9% to 17,073.81. S from Australia&P/ASX 200 slipped 0.3% to 6,456.90. Taiwan’s Taiex lost 0.9% and Bangkok’s SET fell 1.3%.

Wall Street closed a miserable September on Friday with the SThe &P 500’s worst monthly slippage since the coronavirus pandemic sent global markets tumbling. It is now at its lowest level since November 2020 and is down more than a quarter since the start of the year.

The Fed has been at the forefront of the global campaign to slow economic growth and hurt labor markets just enough to reduce inflation, but not enough to cause a recession. On Friday, the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation showed that it was worse last month than economists had expected. This should allow the Fed to keep rates rising and keep them high for some time, increasing the risk that it will go too far and cause a slowdown.

Vice Chairman Lael Brainard was the latest Fed official on Friday to insist he will not cut rates prematurely.

Them&P 500 fell 1.5% to close at 3,585.62 on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 1.7% to 28,725.51. The Nasdaq composite slid 1.5% to 10,575.62. The tech-focused index fell 10.5% in September and is down 32.4% so far this year.

Small company stocks also had a tough September. The Russell 2000 ended the month down 9.7%. On Friday, it was down 0.6% at 1,664.72.

Other concerns loom over global markets, including Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. A UK government plan to cut taxes recently sent bond markets tumbling amid fears it could further worsen inflation. Bond markets only calmed down a bit after the Bank of England last week pledged to buy, but plenty of UK government bonds are needed to drive yields lower.

The astonishing and rapid rise of the US dollar against other currencies, meanwhile, increases the risk of creating so much stress that something will crack somewhere in the global markets.

In other trading on Monday, benchmark U.S. crude oil gained $2.18 to $81.67 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It lost $1.74 to $79.49 a barrel on Friday.

Brent crude, the standard for international oil pricing, rose $2.28 to $87.42 a barrel.

The specter of a possible global recession has led major oil-producing nations to consider further production cuts that would limit supplies and push prices higher.

OPEC and allied oil-producing nations, including Russia, cut supplies to the global economy slightly a month ago, underscoring their displeasure as recession fears help drive down crude prices.

Fronde/CNET

Of the live TV streaming services that carry local Fox stations, the cheapest is Sling TV Blue at $35 per month. Note that Sling is currently running a promotion where the first month of service is half price ($17.50) for new subscribers.

An important caveat: In our experience, local Fox affiliates will only be available if your billing address is in one of the 18 metropolitan areas covered by Sling’s agreement. If you’re outside of one of these areas, you’re probably better off opting for one of the alternative services listed below.

Proposition 13 is working as intended – Orange County Register

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna

Proposition 13 Is Working As Intended – Orange County Register
google news

We were a bit taken aback by the recent article in the Journal by reporter Teri Sforza rhetorically asking if big businesses in Orange County are paying enough property taxes. It wasn’t until the end of the article that it was acknowledged that in 2020 California voters rejected the “split roll” proposal by voting against Proposition 15. This measure would not only have imposed the most property tax hike in California history, but it was also the most serious threat to Proposition 13 since the taxpayer protection measure was overwhelmingly approved by voters in 1978.

The same people who always wanted to destroy Proposition 13 so they could raise taxes even more are now claiming Proposition 13 needs to go because it caused “injustice.” In fact, Proposition 13 works exactly as intended to achieve a lasting balance between fiscal stability and revenue growth. That is why, for more than 40 years, Prop. 13 enjoyed such consistent popularity that it earned him the nickname “The Third Rail of California Politics.” Even after the costly and long-running campaign against it, a poll finds that 60% of Californians think Proposition 13 is “mostly a good thing.”

More importantly, Proposition 13 is also good tax policy. First, it limits the property tax rate to 1% of the value of a property. Second, it limits the annual increase in assessed value to 2% per year. Under prop. 13, even if a property doubles its market value in a single year, its “assessed value”, to which the appraiser applies the 1% tax rate, can only be increased by 2% per year. Third, Proposition 13 requires a revaluation of ownership when it changes hands. This provides a stable and predictable source of tax revenue to local governments that has grown virtually every year since 1978 in percentages that outpace inflation and population growth.

Critics often try to argue that voters didn’t know Proposition 13 would apply to commercial property the same way it protects residential property. This too is false. During the campaign Prop. 13 in 1978, opponents emphasized this argument in their ads and campaign materials, and it was specifically mentioned in the official ballot itself. Voters considered the request and still passed Prop. 13.

Sforza quotes longtime Prop critic Lenny Goldberg. 13 and split-roll advocate, who says commercial property in Orange County is undervalued. Goldberg knows best because he is fully aware that by virtue of prop. 13, the taxable value depends on the market value at the time of acquisition. (Despite his continued jihad against Proposition 13, Goldberg now resides out of state, avoiding California’s high tax burden).

Goldberg is particularly dishonest when he argues that two large Orange County businesses are undervalued because commercial properties are only revalued when a single buyer takes at least 50% or there are physical improvements to the property. “So if three buyers buy 100% of a property, no change in ownership occurs.”
