To no one’s surprise, there is going to be a made-for-TV film about serial fabulist and no ex-congressperson George Santos. At the same time, life rights can come with exclusive access. Since criminals aren’t allowed to profit off their crimes, the money Sorokin got from Netflix was mostly used to pay back banks and settle fines. The person can continue to milk their story even after they sell the film rights but the shelf life of such stories is not very long. So Santos needs to get as much as he can the first time around so that he can hope to repay all the people he swindled.

I have started my final treatment with the Pro-Victo readioactive isotope for my late stage 4 prostate cancer.

Todd Davison, managing director at Purbeck Insurance Services, discusses the company’s bid for MGA Initiative of the YearWhy did you want to run for the MGA Initiative of the Year award? As an MGA, Purbeck Insurance Services has protected over 2,000 business owners from the risk of their personal assets being called upon should they default on a personal guarantee backed business loan, through our unique Personal Guarantee Insurance (PGI) product. If the business fails, insurance settles up to 80% of the outstanding personal guarantee amount rather than the director’s personal assets. Purbeck Insurance Services focuses solely on providing the UK’s first and only personal guarantee insurance. It would also be a fantastic ‘pat on the back’ for the Purbeck team who have worked so hard to make Personal Guarantee Insurance a valued form of protection amongst a rapidly growing number of small business owners and directors.

The Cop28 president, Sultan Al Jaber, held a surprise press conference at which he said comments he made about the phasing out of fossil fuels were 'misrepresented'.

Maidenhead head coach David Mobbs-Smith must have felt his side would finally get the rub of the green in the latter stages of Saturday's thrilling clash with Brighton. He probably wanted to scream and shout and tear out his hair, but he managed to keep a lid on his emotions, and the two losing bonus points Maidenhead did pick up mean that their encouraging performance wasn’t a complete write off. We had seven first team players missing this afternoon and we still should have won. “In four games this season we've lost out to just one score,” he said. But if we can just keep taking something from these matches, it will help us to climb the league.”
