Sorry didn’t:

    Neil Woodford, Woodford Investment Management.Woodford Investment Management LONDON — Neil Woodford, the former U.K. star stockpicker whose investment firm collapsed in 2019, has said "sorry" to investors for losses as he shared plans to make a comeback with a new business.  Woodford said in an interview with The Telegraph, published Saturday, that he was "very sorry for what I did wrong."  The fund manager also announced that he would be launching a new investment firm, Woodford Capital Management Partners, in Jersey. The firm will reportedly only raise money from professional investors and will focus on the biotech sector, British biosciences and health care.  Backing riskier early-stage and unlisted companies in these areas, compounded with poor performance from other stock picks, was what led to a wave of investor redemptions from the Woodford Equity Income Fund. This resulted in the suspension and eventual winding up of the fund, which forced the...
    Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.In the spring of 2013, a friend of mine fell off a balcony. She lived in San Francisco and at that moment I was sitting in my father’s basement in San Diego, having recently left New York because my job doing social media at a consumer tech website had not paid me enough to be able to afford both rent and an unexpected bill. The phone rang and interrupted me writing tweets about laptops—they’d agreed to let me work remotely since the alternative was homelessness—and I found out the news and fell apart instantly. It was doubtful she would live. I ran upstairs, sobbing, and asked my father if he would buy me a ticket and a hotel to go see her. He didn’t hesitate and...
    The U.S. Supreme Court overturned a lower court's decision Thursday and ruled 8-0 that there is no statute of limitations on rape in the military, according to a Supreme Court opinion. The decision followed an appellate court's ruling that made it more difficult for rape victims in the military to obtain justice. In the case, a sergeant in the U.S. Air Force tapped into unfathomable courage and actually got her rapist to confess in a secretly recorded phone call. "I am sorry. I have been sorry. I will always be sorry for raping you," Air Force Lt. Col. Michael Briggs said, according to a transcript of the call CNN obtained. The 20-minute call was recorded in 2013, eight years after Briggs raped the woman in 2005 even though she begged him to stop, CNN reported. Briggs was convicted, dismissed from the Air Force, and sentenced to five months in prison in large part because of an understood...
    YouTube star Gabi DeMartino is apologizing once again for allegedly hawking a naked childhood video of herself on OnlyFans, pricing it at just $3. The two-minute apology video uploaded Thursday begins with the 25-year-old noting a “trigger warning” for fans watching her plea for forgiveness. “Recently my lack of judgment and poor decisions have led to a very, very serious issue that needs to be addressed,” she says. “I owe it to you guys.” She goes on to explain that while she was dreaming up “content” ideas, she stumbled across the home video in which her grandma tells her then-3-year-old self to “put your panties back on.” DeMartino says the video has brought “laughter and joy” to her family for years, so she decided to share it with her 3.24 million subscribers. “I shared it with what I thought was a funny caption,” she explained. “It’s not funny.” She...
    Daphne Maxwell Reid, best known for playing the second Aunt Vivian on 90s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” is overjoyed with the “growth” she’s seen in co-star Will Smith and original Aunt Vivian, Janet Hubert, as the two recently squashed a 27-year-long feud stemming from Hubert’s exit from the show. “She is a woman that I honor for having started this wonderful show, so all I could do was treat her like I would treat anybody when I first met them, and mostly with a big hug,” she told TMZ of her time spent with Hubert during the show’s reunion, currently airing on HBO Max. Reid added that she never even knew there was friction between Smith and Hubert until years after the series ended in 1996. “They never spoke about it, I never knew about it, all I knew is what social media was saying, and I...

    A HAPLESS Mayor has apologised for covering his Belgian town in huge penis-shaped Christmas lights. Anthony Dumarey admitted he didn't know the bright white column lights with bulbous blue tips looked like phalluses "until they were switched on". 7Yule be sorry - the Christmas decorations consist of long columns with bulbous blue tipsCredit: Newsflash 7Where’s rude-olf? A Belgian Mayor insists the saucy lights will stay upCredit: Newsflash The red-faced bureaucrat quickly tried to fob off blame for the saucy lights, pinning the botch-up on council staff. They'd been roped in to design them on the cheap as part of cost-cutting efforts. The X-rated decorations were revealed during switch-ons in the municipality of Oudenburg in the Belgian province of West Flanders, and several local boroughs. Dumarey said: “The first time I saw them during the day, I didn’t pay any attention to them. "[However] once they were illuminated, I noticed...
    Hunter Biden’s emails and texts show not just a politician’s troubled son angling for lucrative overseas business deals — they also reveal a concerned father, a fun-loving friend and a man tortured by the deaths that have devastated his family. In a text-message exchange from 2018, eldest daughter Naomi — named after Biden’s late sister, who was killed with their mother, Neilia, in a 1972 car crash — pleaded with her dad for emergency cash. “Can you put 150 in my account it was just declined for lyft to airport sorry sorry sorry,” the now-26-year-old Columbia Law student asked. “Yes I can but Naomi you ­really have to start to realize that once you are out of school the chances of you living like your father is a billionaire when he’s really given all his money away- is going to be a bit of a shock,” Hunter answered. “I...
    Fans didn’t appreciate his com-meh-moration. Rock ‘n’ roll legend David Crosby has apologized for an obtuse tweet he sent about the late Eddie Van Halen following the guitar god’s death at 65. The Crosby, Stills & Nash singer, 79, had replied to a fan query last week about his opinion about Van Halen’s musical prowess with a flippant “meh,” sparking outrage among music lovers, many of whom dubbed his response “disrespectful” and “lacking empathy.” He then dug himself deeper by subsequently declaring that “Hendrix changed the world of guitar” and Van Halen was “not for me.” “Yes, you Van Halen fans, I did just toss off an answer that was not cool,” Crosby tweeted Tuesday about his tone-deaf reply. However, the Byrds founder claimed he also hadn’t been aware of the rock icon’s passing: “The even more embarrassing truth is I didn’t even remember he had just died or...
    UFC bantamweight Jessica-Rose Clark apologized to Sarah Alpar after leaving her a bloodied mess — just three weeks before her wedding. Clark won in the third round of their fight, but in controversial style. Alpar was dominated and became hurt following a knee, which referee Chris Tognoni thought was illegal. But after replays revealed it was a legal shot, the fight was resumed, despite calls for Alpar to be saved from more damage. As the fight continued, Clark poured on yet more pressure before the ref stopped the action with 40 seconds remaining. With Alpar left to take more strikes, even Clark admitted she felt sorry for her opponent. “I could see [the damage] on her face,” Clark said. “I apologized to her team after the fight because it shouldn’t have kept going. There was one point where I was trying to submit her because I was like, ‘F–k, I...

    You think you used enough flags there, Butch? When Park Service personnel learned that Donald Trump wanted to hold part of his self-appreciation rally at the 250-year-old Fort McHenry structure, the first thing they worried about was that there could be damage to the historic site. And of course, they were right. Trump’s team came in with all the grace of a herd of coked-up elephants, banging up the structure more throughly than a British cannonball. All so, as it turned out, Mike Pence could solve the nation’s sleeping problems by delivering a speech powered by Sominex. Throughout the evening, Republicans followed up on the theme that had been launched on previous nights—no need for masks or social distancing, because that pandemic thing is over. But even the thin rounds of applause from the tiny crowd on hand couldn’t cover up the fact that night three of the RNC was...
    Recently an editor at the website Jezebel titled her essay on quarantine reading “You Don't Have to Read Gravity's Rainbow During Self-Isolation.” She instead recommended “trash” or books one had read as a child. Others in lit biz were quick to recommend Camus’ The Plague, and a recent piece in The New York Times suggested Moby-Dick, mostly for its finale of nature—the White Whale—exacting revenge on Ahab and the rest of the humans (except for Ishmael) on the Pequod. Depending on how long the pandemic lasts, I, too, would recommend Moby-Dick—as a precursor of and as a warm-up for Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow, where the killer whale becomes the killer rocket.  If it’s fiction you want these shut-in days, Pynchon’s is the American novel that offers the most profound understanding of how the pandemic is killing hundreds of thousands across the globe. Granted, each of us is most concerned that...

    Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio apologized on Wednesday for saying he didn’t “see racism at all in the NFL” in comments he made on Tuesday to reporters. “After reflecting on my comments yesterday and listening to the players this morning I realize what I said regarding racism and discrimination in the NFL was wrong,” the 61-year-old Fangio said in a statement released on the team’s Twitter account. “While I have never personally experienced those terrible things first-hand during my 33 years in the NFL, I understand many players, coaches and staff have different perspectives. “I should have been more clear and I am sorry.” Fangio said on Tuesday’s call that he was “shocked, sad and angry” about George Floyd’s death, calling it a “societal issue that we all have to join in to correct.” But the next comment Fangio made on Tuesday was the one he wanted to clear...
