Put Brexit talks with EU on backburner and open negotiations with rest of world, Theresa May told
Leading Tory Eurosceptics are to spell out rival Brexit plans that directly contradict Theresa May’s proposals, setting the scene for intense Tory infighting just weeks before a deal is meant to be agreed with the EU. The rebel plans are likely to demand looser future relations with Brussels and are to be laid out by ex-cabinet minister David Davis and lead Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg, but are also said to enjoy support inside the cabinet. In a sign of the impending hostilities, Brexit secretary Dominic Raab launched a pre-emptive attack on the approach taken by the Eurosceptics on Sunday, saying the kind of free trade deal they outline is “off the table”.

This mischievous little pup will do anything to escape. Owner Andrew had his hands full trying to stop his adorable three-month-old dog from crawling under the gate. He weaved towels through the gate in an attempt to prevent the pup from crawling through. Andrew did not expect what happened next. The clever pooch tugged on the towels to pull them from the gate. As he tugged, the gate came loose and slowly fell to the floor, freeing the pup. Credit: Andrew Reid via Storyful
SAN FRANCISCO/HONG KONG (Reuters) - For three whirlwind days in June, U.S. scientist Zhi Hong went shopping at the Boston Bio Conference to find drugs to fill the pipeline of his two-week-old drug company. Crammed in tight, four-person booths executives use for private conversations, the former GlaxoSmithKline PLC executive pitched dozens of U.S. biotech companies to partner with his start-up, Brii Biosciences. Months earlier, Hong had raised $260 million - much of it from Chinese and Asian investors - with a strategy to bring U.S. biotechnology drugs to China, the world’s second-largest prescription drug market and home to a rapidly growing biotech sector.

The playoff-bound Yankees blew a three-run lead against the worst team in the majors Sunday — and then came the really bad news.

Jules Casey was freediving along Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula when she spotted a mollusc on a mission in Port Phillip Bay. In this video, the speedy scallop suddenly decides it’s time to move, huffing and puffing its way through the water by opening and shutting its shell. Commenters on the post speculated on what the scallop might be running away from, with many saying they’d never seen a scallop move before. “Me when I see my ex,” one commenter wrote. “Running away from a strange being with enormous glasses,” said another. Casey said she was stoked to have caught this on camera, as she’d been trying to capture a scallop in action for a long time. Credit: onebreathdiver via Storyful
Spending on digital marketing grew by 44 percent last year in the United States and Britain to $52 billion, a study has found, estimating that global outlays on such tactics are approaching $100 billion. In contrast to placing online ads through intermediaries, digital marketing, or "martech", has the appeal of enabling brands to target consumers directly via social media, search-engine optimisation or voice-activated assistants, such as Amazon's Alexa. The growth in part reflects a desire to take functions in house following high-profile complaints by consumer giants Procter & Gamble and Unilever over fraud in online advertising.
Zenith, owned by France's Publicis, raised its forecast for global advertising spending growth to 4.5 percent from 4.1 percent and predicted two-thirds of that growth will come through paid search and social media ads. In recent times, advertising companies including market leader WPP Plc have been hit by clients switching to using online platforms like Google and Facebook to reach consumers. Paid search, which inserts sponsored content into search engine results, will grow $22 billion in 2018 whereas social media ad spending is expected to grow by $28 billion, making it the largest contributor to expenditure growth, Zenith said.
