(CNN)The New England Patriots are finished with wide receiver Antonio Brown. "The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown," a Patriots team spokesperson said in a statement on Friday afternoon. "We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time." Brown -- who played in his lone game in a Patriots uniform last Sunday, scoring a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins -- took to Twitter on Friday afternoon, thanking the Patriots for the opportunity and saying, "The marathon continues." Later, he added: "Just got fired on a Friday."

Disproportionately small hands
The remarkable thing about the Jeremy Corbyn surge is not so much the surge. Most European countries have at least one insurgent, radical outsider party – Syriza is one among several in Greece, there is Podemos in Spain, Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement in Italy, and here in the UK, Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP as well as a newly energised Green party. So, if a Labour leadership contest failed to produce an English equivalent it would have been more odd than the fact that it has. What was less easy to anticipate was that the face of the 21st-century left in England wears a greying beard and something that looks quite like a Mao cap, and has more than 30 years’ unbroken service as MP for Islington North. This new hero of first-time voters, the scourge of the Labour Westminster establishment and the man who may conceivably inherit the mantle of Ed Miliband is a 66-year-old white man from north London. It is, although he won’t quite admit it himself, a bit of a … [Read more...] about Jeremy Corbyn must understand Labour’s new members to change the party’s fortunes
Juzer GabajiwalaInvestors always give a lot of weight to the past performance of returns. In fact, most decisions are always made on the basis of returns.In the case of mutual funds, it is not that you need to ignore the returns as that is ultimately the performance parameter of the fund manager. While selecting a scheme for investment or while deciding whether to continue with a current investment, a fund’s performance track record does play a critical role and returns usually take precedence over other important factors that are considered while investing.Close However, given the changes recently introduced by SEBI with regard to categorisation of schemes, this parameter would not be an appropriate tool at present.Juzer GabajiwalaDirector|Ventura Securities Take the SIP route for equity mutual funds amid volatility, keep 3-5 yrs horizonHow tax is calculated on debt mutual fund investmentsInternational funds: Key to achieving geographical diversificationIn order to enable … [Read more...] about Picking the best mutual fund: Are past returns relevant after re-categorisation?
STUFF If he'd served the maximum sentences for all his crimes, Les Orchard would have spent 5500 years in prison. With 1160 convictions, 1000 jail sentences, and a maximum jail time of over 5000 years, Les Orchard could be New Zealand's most prolific fraudster. He does it all for fun, he tells Steve Kilgallon. We meet in a McDonald's opposite Wellington's main railway station. He's wearing a striped dark shirt, a fleece jacket, and carrying a neat briefcase. Tanned from two weeks holiday in Fiji, he's in much better shape than our old file photographs show him. He looks like an accountant or a small business owner. Instead, he's quite likely New Zealand's most prolific, and certainly most unrepentant fraudster. Among his scams was, he claims, "selling" Rangipo prison to Japanese investors as a backpacker's lodge. Over a McChicken burger and a green tea, the remarkable life story of a man who has amassed 1160 convictions and 1000 sentences of imprisonment pours … [Read more...] about Les Orchard is probably New Zealand’s most prolific fraudster

The English Premier League overtime has attracted managers from all over the world, with their varying tactics and styles. Here is a top ten list for the best premier league managers in the last decade: 10) Eddie Howe It may change come May, but Eddie Howe can claim something almost all of his closest contenders for this spot cannot: he has, in a Premier League since, never failed. The decade began with Howe and Bournemouth scrapping for promotion in England’s fourth tier and will end with a battle against relegation from the top flight. Neither manager nor club have been without their faults. ALSO READ: Fletcher names one Man Utd player no team-mate can dribble past But he is currently the longest-serving Premier League boss, second in the Football League, and a regular refrain when the name of a young English coach needs to be tossed at an elite club. It does him no disservice to say he has never performed below expectations since promotion in 2015, whereas others … [Read more...] about Top ten English Premier League managers of the decade
