William and Harry could stand side-by-side at the Queen’s funeral



William and Harry could stand side-by-side at the Queen’s funeral, as commemorations continue for the monarch

William has officially carried out his first duty as the Prince of Wales, picking up the phone to speak with the country’s First Minister, Mark Drakeford.

Promising to serve with both “humility and respect”, William takes on the duty his father, Charles held for decades.

King Charles III gave his son and wife, Katherine their new titles of the Prince and Princess of Wales on Friday. It followed the passing of Elizabeth and shift in the line to the throne.

William and Kate will spend the next part of their lives focussed on deepening ties with Wales. They have vowed to support the aspirations of Welsh people wherever they can.

In his phone call with Drakeford, William insisted he and his Princess will indeed be travelling to the country “very soon”.

United by grief

It comes just hours after William publicly appeared with his brother, Harry and wife, Meghan.

United by grief, the brothers put aside their differences. They inspected flowers and greeted well-wishers outside Windsor Castle.

It’s an all-too familiar path for the royals, who lost their mother, Diana 25 years ago.

Meanwhile, in a touching tribute to his “grannie”, William took to Instagram to give his own personal tribute to the late Queen.

In the post, he says “the world has lost an extraordinary leader”.

“So much will be said in the days ahead about the meaning of her historic reign. I, however, have lost a grandmother. And while I will grieve her loss, I also feel incredibly grateful to have the benefit of The Queen’s wisdom and reassurance into my fifth decade”, William said.

In a further sign of letting bygones be bygones, reports also suggest William and Harry could walk in to the Queen’s funeral service side-by-side. Plans are set to be finalised over the coming days.

This is certainly a stark difference indeed from the memorial of their grandfather, Philip just 17 months ago. While the two gentlemen did walk close by at this service, they were separated by by their cousin, Peter Phillips.

William is an Executive News Producer at TICKER NEWS, responsible for the production and direction of news bulletins. William is also the presenter of the hourly Weather + Climate segment. With qualifications in Journalism and Law (LLB), William previously worked at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) before moving to TICKER NEWS.

New York Stock Exchange in free fall



Human error sends the New York Stock Exchange tumbling

We’ve all made mistakes at the office from time to time, but spare a thought for one worker who may have single-handedly brought down the New York Stock Exchange with just one tiny error.

The mistake of one employee has wiped billions of dollars off the charts for some of the globe’s largest companies.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

Djokovic’s father was seen posing for pictures with a group of Putin supporters after his son won against Russia’s Andrey Rublev, to qualify for his 10th semi-final.

Four spectators were questioned by police and evicted from Melbourne Park.

After losing her semi-final, Belarusian Viktoria Azarenka hit back at media when pressed on tennis’ relationship with Russia’s war on Ukraine.

FBI Director discusses classified documents as U.S. lawmakers demand answers



Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
