Pedal power and poker faces: what drove Team New Zealand's America’s Cup success | Nick Vindin

The new holders of the Auld Mug were the faster, more reliable boat, but there were other factors at play in their famous victory over Team USAIn the end the fight for the oldest trophy in world sport, the Auld mug, was a one-sided affair.

Lions’ pride and potential could produce New Zealand series for the ages | Robert Kitson

The tourists are under no illusions about their task against the world’s No1 side but there is belief within a team who are arguably the strongest Lions since 2001 and buoyed by encouraging warm-up winsIt may sound counterintuitive but, before the first Test, the British & Irish Lions should be drawing inspiration from a bunch of New Zealanders in Bermuda. For those not tuned into this year’s America’s Cup, New Zealand’s yachtsmen have slogged through numerous tough knockout contests to face the defending champions and hosts Oracle Team USA in the final. And the latest? It is never over until the plump mermaid sings but the fancied Americans are a clear second, reduced to playing catch-up by their battle-hardened visitors.

Водители трамваев в Нанте в знак протеста облачились в юбки

Водители трамваев и автобусов во французском городе Нант после запрета на ношение бриджей и шорт в жару в знак протеста вышли на работу в женских юбках, пишет Parisien. Издание отмечает, что для них «это не дань моде». По словам самих водителей, форма женщин-водителей предусматривает ношение юбок, тогда как для мужчин «эквивалента нет», передает РИА «Новости». Один из протестующих, представитель профсоюзной организации Габриэль Маньер заявил, что мужчины борются за право носить укороченные штаны или бермуды во время жары с 2013 года. Водители подчеркивают, что температура на их рабочем месте зачастую достигает 50 градусов. Издание отмечает, что после подобной акции шведских водителей в 2013 году власти все-таки пошли на уступки. Во Франции в последние дни установилась жаркая погода. Днем в среду столбик термометра поднялся до 37 градусов.

Offshore profits and domestic productivity

US multinational enterprises may legally shift profits from high tax countries (like the US) to low tax countries (like Bermuda). This column uses unpublished survey data to show how this causes part of the US economic activity generated by these multinational enterprises to be attributed to their overseas affiliates, leading to an understatement of measured US GDP and, in turn, productivity. Profit-shifting activity has increased significantly since the mid-1990s, resulting in an understatement of the growth rate of US productivity.
