Another tanker got stuck in the Suez Canal – here’s the rescue mission
Another ship got stuck in the Suez Canal
A crude oil tanker has been re-floated after blocking the famous Canal in Egypt.
According to a spokesman for Suez Canal Authority… the Affinity-V vessel became stuck in a single-lane stretch of the canal – but not as long as the last giant tanker of 20-21 that we all remember
The Affinity was refloated after tugboats were deployed to assist.
Affinity V was floating again about five hours later, authority spokesperson George Safwat said.
Affinity V was travelling from Portugal to Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea port of Yanbu.
It’s unclear how much oil the Singaporean-flagged ship was carrying, but ABC reported it has a capacity to carry more than 110,000 tonnes.
It’s been 18 months since the Ever Given container ship blocked the canal for six days.
The blockage created a massive traffic jam that held up 9 billion a day in global trade.
Thankfully… the Affinity isn’t in the same boat.
With rising rates, people should be encouraged to put away money, so they can see their savings grow
With interest rates all over the world being very low, people have been receiving almost nothing in return for keeping their money in the bank.
However, this has all changed due to inflation rising, and saving accounts now starting to pay something.
Now, the buffer has started to get bigger and bigger, to the point where savers are becoming addicted to the earned interest.

Why Elon Musk was booed on stage
New Twitter boss Elon Musk did not receive the warmest welcome at Dave Chappelle’s recent comedy show
Elon Musk appeared embarrassed at Dave Chappelle’s recent San Francisco comedy show, when the audience began booing him.
A mixed reaction from audience members at the show. Some cheered as Chappelle welcome Musk onto the stage, but it was impossible to notice many booing him.
It’s no surprise though, given San Francisco is the home of Twitter HQ, and the place where Musk just fired thousands of staff.
It comes as the controversial new boss makes drastic changes to the social media platform.
After trying to joke his way around the awkwardness for Musk, Chappelle finished the show with some words of wisdom and a prayer.
However, Musk has since responded to the booing from the crowd insisting it “was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods), but, still, that’s a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life (frequent on Twitter).”
