With concerns about the health and age of both Presidential candidates, constitutional experts have reassured voters that the nation’s largest corporations will continue to run the country, even in the event of an unexpected health scare.
Governance and constitutional expert Daniel Thurgood said there were unique safeguards built into the US system to ensure the uninterrupted maintenance of power, regardless of what happens to an individual president or candidate.
“One of the great things about our system is that, even in a disaster scenario, the responsibility bestowed in our nation’s billionaires to determine the direction of the country is preserved.
“It means that – even if Donald Trump or Joe Biden was to become incapacitated or, God forbid, die – there would be a small number of powerful businessmen who would continue to set tax rates, healthcare policy and defence spending in a steady, constant fashion. Nothing would change”.
He said it was important to avoid uncertainty. “Leaders change; parties change. But we’re very lucky to have a system that – at its core – is run by the same group of people, regardless of who is in power”.

If you haven’t heard, it’s soup season. ;) And what’s better to go with a warm and cozy bowl of soup than a warm and tender drop biscuit? Drop biscuits are incredibly easy and you can change up the flavors to go with your meal. This week I used my homemade ranch seasoning to make a really simple ranch-flavored drop biscuit. They’re a little tangy, a little herby, and absolutely delicious! I know you’re going to love them, so make sure to put these Ranch Drop Biscuits on your menu. What Are Drop Biscuits? Drop biscuits are a really simple type of quickbread with a free-form dough that is just dropped by the spoonful onto a baking sheet rather than being rolled and cut like a traditional biscuit. They have a...
However, Carol Lewis writing for the Sunday Times newspaper thinks that holiday let owners should be paying council tax. “Given that levelling up is the government’s buzzword du jour, it is time to level the playing field and bring holiday-home owners in line with everyone else,” she argues. Lewis thinks there are thousands of holiday-let owners who have benefited from council tax exemption, business rates relief and have had access to “generous government grants” during the Covid pandemic. Business Rates Relief She quotes Colliers figures in her argument for this that local authorities across England and Wales have lost around £110 million per year because of business rates relief given...

The Lou Codega hull design makes for an easy, dry ride. (Garrett Cortese/)OverviewRegulator’s new 37 boasts a classically beautiful hull, and it fits neatly into the niche that boat buyers have clamored for since the 1940s—a hardcore fishing platform that converts easily at day’s end to a comfortable leisure platform. With plenty of seating in an open boat, everyone gets into the action. And yes, there’s a big V-berth in the console cabin (6 feet, 11 inches of headroom), with an enclosed head and shower (7 feet, 6 inches of headroom), and a galley.

Two meetings to look at on Wednesday night, with my attention at Bathurst and Redcliffe. Down below is best bets for the respective programs. Bathurst Best Bet: Race 2, Number 10, Winona Writer The second row draw should prove no drama for this unbeaten filly, who is 4/4 to start her career. Second row draw two back and gave them a belting and did something similar last time. The second row draw is a tricky one, but I think she has the brilliance to overcome it again. Next Best: Race 4, Number 2, Smooth Overarm Amanda Turnbull has been hot and cold with these former Kiwis in recent weeks at Bathurst, but this gelding does look to have settled into life down under nicely. Former New Zealander that built up a solid record...
After Marissa Wenzler collected the Women’s Western Amateur trophy, a colossal piece of hardware both physically and symbolically in the amateur golf world – on July 24, she was headed back home to Dayton, Ohio to a family reunion already underway. Safe to say the family was watching that week-long performance at Park Ridge (Illinois) Country Club from afar. Safe to say some Wenzler fans in the greater Miami Valley Golf Association were watching, too. “I think everyone is going to be pretty excited,” she told Golfweek at the end of that week. “I have a great support system, my family, friends, teammates, coaches, everyone.” Wenzler, a junior on the University of Kentucky roster, is a bright spot for one of the country’s smaller golf organizations. Miami Valley...

There are two meetings to look at on Saturday night, with my attention being at Ballarat and Menangle. Below are the best bets for the respective programs. Ballarat Best bet: Race 4, Number 13, Plymouth Chubb He’s a star juvenile trotter and barring bad luck, he’ll be winning again despite the draw. He had to do work in the run at Stawell last time out but his class came to the fore and he was much too good for his rivals. He can work and still be effective at the end so I’m clearly in his corner. Next best: Race 5, Number 3, Santa Casa Beach This horse is a quality four-year-old that resumes and he can resume a winner. This horse is a Russell Jack-trained gelding that is first up, having not raced since July...
