Angela Merkel warns EU to get ready for no deal ahead of Boris Johnson’s Brexit deadline

Angela Merkel warned the EU must get ready for UK trade negotiations to fail as Boris Johnson told ministers the UK should have “no fear” over a no deal Brexit if his October 15 deadline is missed on Thursday. The Prime Minister told his Cabinet he believed a deal could still be done by Thursday’s European Council summit in two days’ time but that was ruled out by Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator. Mr Johnson will speak to Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Commission, on Wednesday after being briefed on whether a free trade agreement is in sight by David Frost, his chief negotiator. Mrs Merkel said the EU wanted to secure the trade deal and appeared to urge other member states to compromise in a speech

5 Mistakes I Made While Renovating My Kitchen

This summer, I embarked on a soup-to-nuts kitchen renovation..for the first time in my life. I hand-drew a floor plan to scale, ripped out tile and hacked down cupboards, and product sourced everything from our custom cabinet makers (a friend of a friend) to our backsplash tile (a Wayfair score!). Am I obsessed with my tiny jewel of an apartment kitchen? Heck, yes. Did I make a boatload of beginner mistakes along the way? You betcha. I’m sharing them here so you can avoid them.

RELATED: The Eclectic Kitchen Trend You’re About to See Everywhere

Since the kitchen is all white and we chose durable, man-made quartz for the countertops, I wanted to bring in some more luxurious, natural texture via the backsplash. I found a gorgeous, long Calacatta marble subway tile which I thought would be the next best thing to a pricey, single-slab backsplash. The problem? Both the

The roof for Christchurch’s new multi-use arena will cost $67.2 million alone – just $20m less than the main structure itself, new documents suggest.

The 25,000-seat covered central city arena is projected to cost a total $473m plus GST, with the Crown to contribute $220m and the Christchurch City Council providing the remaining $253m.

It will hold 35,000 people for concerts, including standing room. Up to 5000 temporary seats could be added at later.

Earlier this week, the council released documents outlining the project for companies interested in designing and building it. The council will pick a preferred contractor in December.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Quarantined

Dr. Brown said he would charter the plane himself. He was nervous—the patients wanted him at their summer home in St. Michaels to screen them for Covid immediately. But it was a Thursday in summer, and driving would take forever. Forget about taking the car.

Instead, Ernest Brown, owner of Doctors to You, a Washington-area concierge-medicine group whose house-yacht/private-jet calls start at $600 a pop, drove to Gaithersburg and hopped a puddle jumper to the airport in Easton. The patients, who needed to be screened in order to meet with another VIP, sent a car to meet him. All told, Brown was at their waterfront estate for ten minutes, max. Results: negative.

In certain worlds, this might seem ludicrously extravagant, perhaps somewhat sinful. But in Brown’s, it was just another day during the pandemic, a months-long blur of screening VIP clients, along with their nannies, drivers, valets, and chefs. Sometimes,

Shopping for New Kitchen Cabinets, Explained

Flimsy shelves, chipping veneer, and awkward drawers are all signs it might be time to break up with your kitchen cabinets. Fortunately, today there are plenty of new cupboard options and styles in the sea—er, store. You just have to figure out what your type is.
