    With permission from the seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton or the new signing of Ferrari, Carlos Sainz, the great novelty of the 2021 Formula 1 season is seeing Fernando Alonso in the competition again. The Asturian returns to Enstone, this time under the name of Alpine F1, with the aim of squeezing his last chance to be world champion, something that will not arrive at the earliest until 2022 with the normative change. Although this year is presented as a transitional season, the two-time world champion will have to meet a series of minimal challenges to consider that his return has been successful. 1. Finish ahead of Esteban Ocon Every F1 driver is measured first with the other member of the team, being the only one who has the same car in hand. Alonso has been a ‘crush companions’, except on very rare occasions, to the point of ending the progression...
    Red Bull set a record time at Hungaroring last season when Max Verstappen crashed his car with just minutes to go for the race. The team managed an emergency repair and had the car ready and on the grid just in time with less than a minute to go. But what went wrong at that starting lap? Verstappen opened up about the incident in a recent interview and explained what went wrong on that wet Hungaroring track. “I wanted to synchronize eighth gear and had in mind the run to turn four. There (in the rain, ed.) My top speed was not high enough. And then I thought it might very well be that that particular straight piece could be done. and I actually succeeded.” ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – DECEMBER 01: Second placed Max Verstappen of Netherlands and Red Bull Racing celebrates with donuts on track during the...
    Last week, Texas experienced an energy grid failure on a disastrous scale. Roughly 2.7 million people were without power last Wednesday; for comparison, that would be akin to half of Minnesota’s population experiencing a blackout. This week, though power services have largely been restored across the state, millions are reeling from the aftermath of the Arctic blast.  The unseasonably cold winter storm wasn’t simply an inconvenience. The delivery of hundreds of thousands of COVID-19 vaccines was delayed, and nearly half of Texas’ population faced a water crisis. The death count as a result of the outages — from exposure to cold to carbon monoxide poisoning — has climbed into the dozens.  MinnPost chatted with Gabriel Chan, the director of graduate study for Science, Technology and Environmental Policy at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs and a fellow at the University’s Institute on the Environment, about why Texas’...
    Ted Cruz has been pictured jetting off to Cancun while millions in Texas remain without power, heat or water amid a devastating winter storm.  The Texas senator was spotted at an undisclosed airport Thursday ahead of his trip to Mexico 'for a few days at a resort he has visited before', according to reports.  While he waited to board a flight to sunnier climes nearly 3.4 million Texans were still without electricity, and some also lost water service. The nationwide death toll from the storm is 31. Texas officials ordered 7 million people — a quarter of the population of the nation's second-largest state — to boil tap water before drinking it following days of record low temperatures that damaged infrastructure and froze pipes.  Ted Cruz is pictured on Wednesday afternoon jetting to Cancun with his wife and kids on a United Airlines flight  Texas, which relies on its own...

Winter storm Uri has brought historic cold weather, power outages and traffic accidents to Texas as storms have swept across 26 states with a mix of freezing temperatures and precipitation.Go Nakamura | Getty Images Energy prices continued to climb as an arctic blast kept the South in a deep freeze Wednesday and left up to 3 million people in the state without power. West Texas Intermediate oil prices rose 2% in morning trade, while gasoline futures were up nearly 3% though natural gas edged lower as the crisis in Texas and multiple other states continued. Heating oil futures were also higher. With "oil wells and refineries offline, we could be facing a significant shortfall for a number of days, further tightening supply at a time when it has already been restricted and demand is expected to return," wrote...
    Kimi Raikkonen, at 41 years of age, is the oldest Formula 1 driver on the grid. The former champion will continue his partnership with Alfa Romeo alongside Antonio Giovinazzi, just as he has been doing since 2019. The team finished in P8 of the championship standing; Giovinazzi and Raikkonen both claimed four points each last season. The Italian is looking forward to his third season with Alfa Romeo and believes having Kimi Raikkonen alongside will help him develop as a driver.

    Ahead of the 2020 YellaWood 500, NASCAR outlined the starting grid for this weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series playoff race. As per the formula, Denny Hamlin is set to lead the pack from Las Vegas winner, Kurt Busch. With Kevin Harvick starting in 5th place, this gives Hamlin the perfect opportunity to close the gap in the standings. Between them are Kurt Busch, Martin Truex Jr., and Alex Bowman. In addition to that, Harvick has a fired-up Kyle Busch, keen to bag at least one win. As the defending champion, taking a win is now a matter of personal pride. Last weekend at the Las Vegas Speedway, Busch found himself in 2nd place alongside Harvick but ended the race 6th fastest.

    Sometimes it’s the small things that make crossword puzzle writers happy – and that challenge even the best solvers. I was happy to fit IMPROV into this Sunday's grid. Why? Because it's an interesting performance medium, perhaps, or because the show "Whose Line Is It Anyway" is so funny? Yes, in part – but also because it's so rare to have a word ending in V.  Part of the fun there is just using something different – very few usable crossword entries end in V (outside of Roman numerals), so mixing things up a bit is always good. But there's a more sinister reason, too: I want to trick solvers into thinking they've made a mistake! Hey, it's a Sunday puzzle, so it's supposed to be tough. If the two improv masters in the clue didn't register, then a solver might think that DAVIS at 31-Across was incorrect, because what could...
    Rebecca Tulis Geography is a subject well-represented in crosswords. The worldwide diversity of geographical place names gives puzzle writers a huge and handy set of entries to choose from. Just in the category of “four-letter countries” we’ve got PERU, OMAN, LAOS, IRAN, and MALI, among others, which have proven helpful to crossword writers time and again.  Place names are also a good way to learn about the wider world. For example, we had JAPAN clued this week with reference to its prime minister, Shinzo Abe, who just resigned after a historic eight years in power. If you didn’t already know that, then solving the Sunday puzzle clued you in. Similarly you may have already known that DUBAI is home to the world’s tallest building (1-Down, Thursday), or that HAITI is the setting for a new book about Haitian national hero Toussaint Louverture (20-Down, also Thursday) – but if not,...
    A COUPLE decided to ditch the comfort of their home and live on a bus after splashing out £2,400 on a minbus.

    With the weather looming heavy over the Hungaroring, many predicted plenty of drama. To an extent, they were right, but what they did not expect was for the drama to kick off before the lights went out. While on his way to the grid, Max Verstappen fell afoul and slid into the barriers. The good news is that there was no major damage, but the bad news is that it gives Red Bull a headache before the race. As it turned out, Verstappen broke the front left corner and his front wing. This could spell his doom for the Dutchman because if his suspension is compromised, he could potentially miss the race.

    Seven-times NASCAR Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson is in his final season. And with him contracting COVID-19 the question arise that when will he return on the track. After the news of Johnson contracting the disease broke out NASCAR published a statement with the details of his health.

    Getty Lower Manhattan at night on September 13, 2009. On June 18, EMP expert Peter Pry posted an op-ed in The Hill stating that China might be planning an EMP attack on the U.S. Pry states that the COVID-19 pandemic outlined significant weaknesses in “U.S. planning and preparation for civil defense protection and recovery.” He argues that despite the U.S. spending decades and billions on preparing for biological warfare, they “have not even been able to competently cope” with the coronavirus outbreak. Pry also points to the ongoing “cold civil war” in the U.S. with anarchists and criminals “infiltrating recent protests.” He then states that for the last quarter-century, China has been planning an EMP attack on the U.S. in a “Pearl Harbor” type of cyber attack. So what is EMP and what would an EMP attack look like?EMP Stands for Electromagnetic Pulse & Can Be Used as...
