When Fulham were awarded a penalty in the 36th minute at Leicester City on Monday their fans watching at home on TV might have been inclined to duck behind the sofa. So lamentable has Fulham's recent record from 12 yards been that having a penalty awarded in their favour has become a poisoned chalice for whoever lines up the shot. Before Monday, Fulham had failed to convert five of their last eight penalty kicks in the league, including their last three.
Global consumer goods giant Unilever said on Tuesday it was poised to try out a four-day working week for all its New Zeland employees.

When you apply for a mortgage to buy a home, your loan is classified by your lender as either a "conforming loan" or a "jumbo loan." The two GSEs guarantee that they will buy "conforming loans" -- but not jumbo loans. This means banks are more eager to work with loans below Fannie and Freddie's limits, since they know there's a buyer for the loan, and they won't have to keep it on their own books.

The viral pandemic is accelerating a transformation of America's holiday shopping season. Few people showed up at the mall this weekend, with millions of pandemic-wary shoppers staying home to shop online. Overall holiday sales are projected to rise a slight 0.9% in November and December — and even that modest gain will be due to an explosion in online shopping, according to the research firm eMarketer.
Angelo Ogbonna and Jarrod Bowen were both on target for David Moyes’ side, who fought back after a deflected Jack Grealish equaliser and were fortunate that Ollie Watkins smashed a late penalty against the crossbar before seeing a stoppage-time effort ruled out for offside in a lively encounter on Monday night. The hosts - boosted by the return of key forward Michail Antonio following a hamstring injury - could not have made a better start to proceedings in Stratford, with Ogbonna towering high at a corner to head home West Ham’s fastest Premier League goal since November 2016 with only one minute and 50 seconds on the clock.

Hopes for the usual “Santa Claus rally” on Wall Street may have to be a bit tempered this year. That’s because November’s powerful rally is one tough act to follow. The Dow Jones Industrial Average logged its best monthly gain since January 1987, rising 12% in November and crossing the 30,000 mark for the first time ever. The S&P 500 soared 11% for its best showing since April, while the Nasdaq Composite climbed 12%. “Because November was very very strong it might end up stealing from Santa and we might end up having a weaker gain in December than we normally would,” Sam Stovall, chief market strategist at CFRA Research tells Yahoo Finance L
Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon surged again over the past year, hitting a 12-year high, according to official figures released Monday that drew a chorus of condemnation of President Jair Bolsonaro's government. A total of 11,088 square kilometres (4,281 square miles) of forest was destroyed in Brazil's share of the world's biggest rainforest in the 12 months to August, according to the Brazilian space agency's PRODES monitoring program, which analyses satellite images to track deforestation.That is equivalent to an area larger than Jamaica, and was a 9.5-percent increase from the previous year, when deforestation also hit a more than decade-long high."Because of such deforestation, Brazil is probably the only major greenhouse gas emitter that managed to increase its emissions in the year the coronavirus pandemic paralyzed the global economy," said the Brazilian Climate Observatory, a coalition of environmental groups.Forests such as the Amazon play a vital role in controlling climate change because they suck carbon from the atmosphere. However, when trees die or burn, they release their carbon back into the environment.Bolsonaro, a far-right climate-change skeptic, has presided over rising deforestation and wildfires since taking office in January 2019.His government is pushing to open protected lands to mining and agribusiness, and has slashed funding for environmental protection programs.Environmentalists say those policies fuel the destruction of the Amazon, about 60 percent of which is in Brazil."The Bolsonaro government's vision of development for the Amazon is a throwback to the rampant deforestation of the past. It's a regressive vision that's far from the effort needed to deal with the climate crisis," Greenpeace spokeswoman Cristiane Mazzetti said in a statement.Vice President Hamilton Mourao, who presented the figures in a press conference, defended the government's committment to fighting deforestation."The message I bring in the name of President Bolsonaro is that we will continue working with science and technology to support the work of environmental protection agencies," said Mourao, a retired army general who heads Bolsonaro's Amazon task force.The latest annual deforestation figure was the highest since 2008, when 12,911 square kilometers of forest were destroyed in the Brazilian Amazon.(AFP)
