CHRIS Evans today held back tears as he thanked his wife and family during an emotional final breakfast show on Radio 2. The broadcaster, who has been at the BBC station since 2005 and has had the breakfast slot since January 2010, is returning to Virgin almost 20 years after he left. Evans, 52, told listeners today is a "sad day" and asked them to not "shed too many tears during our final morning". He also paused to compose himself as he spoke of how his wife, Natasha Shishmanian, had given him the "certainty to feel confident enough to embark upon a bit of uncertainty again". Evans said: "It is sad. It's a sad day today. But it is also an exciting day for everyone. You've got to turn the pages sometimes. "Please don't shed too many tears during our final morning." Evans married Shishmanian, 38, in 2007 and the pair welcomed twins in September this year. The Christmas Eve show was the former TFI Friday and Top Gear host's last before he is replaced by Zoe Ball in the New Year. He … [Read more...] about Chris Evans holds back the tears in emotional final BBC Radio 2 show before big Virgin move

The Dow Jones industrial average’s one-day plunge of 22.6 percent, or 508 points — the equivalent of 5,446 points (!!) today — immediately raised fears that consumers would retrench, the all-important holiday retail season would be a bust, and the economy would fall into recession. It was a gloomy time. But consumers didn’t run and hide, the economy didn’t tank, and by the end of the year the Dow was up 2 percent.There hasn’t been a crash this year, but markets are looking bleak. On Monday, the Dow lost nearly 508 points. This time around that was just a 2.1 percent drop, but it left the index down 4.5 percent for the year and 12.1 percent since its record high on Oct. 3. That’s what Wall Street calls a correction, or loss of more than 10 … [Read more...] about When the Dow fell 22 percent and the world didn’t end. Keep that in mind this nervous Noel

0 Have your say From: Gerald Hodgson, Spennithorne, Leyburn. One HUNDRED years ago the First World War came to an end. Just 20 years after that, seven months before I was born, the storm clouds were gathering from another hideous conflict. Just a few years after that, as a small boy in a basement air raid shelter in Newcastle, I heard German bombs exploding in the street outside.The Common Market which became the EU was established, not only to facilitate trade but, vitally, to put a stop to the wars which had raged in Europe for centuries. In this it has been brilliantly successful, a prize which relegates arguments about economics into insignificance.At the referendum in 2016 the electorate was seriously and deliberately misled as to the effect of a Leave vote. That effect is much clearer to us now and very unappealing it looks.The Conservative and Labour parties are in total disarray on the issue.

The Pumas won two of their Rugby Championship games this year, the first time they have done so, and came close to winning a third.Coach Ledesma has shored the team up after a poor run of form and they will be confident of getting a result against a team they have beaten … [Read more...] about Argentina announce team to face France in Lille test
