A Kris Bryant grand slam in the top of the third Saturday night put the Cubs up, 5-2, and it looked like they might be able to take care of business on their own. Instead, the White Sox stormed back with a funky bottom of the fourth — highlighted by Jose Abreu’s clutch, bases-clearing double — and went on to victory over their cross-town rivals. 

Still, the Cubs’ magic number was one and the Cardinals loss at home to the Brewers did the trick. The Cubs are the 2020 NL Central champions. It’s their sixth Central title and third in the last five seasons. 

There wasn’t a ton of drama here after the Cubs won and the Cardinals lost (one of their two games) on Friday. The question was more when than if after that. The real drama in the NL Central heads into the (maybe!) last day of

Chandler Guo was a pioneer in cryptocurrency, the digital currencies that can be created and used independently of national central banks and governments.

In 2014 he set up an operation to produce one of those currencies, Bitcoin, in a secret location in western China.

“Mining” Bitcoin is a power hungry enterprise involving dozens of computers so he used power from a hydroelectric station, in partnership with a local Chinese government official.

At its peak his machines were capable of mining 30% of the world’s Bitcoin. He believed Bitcoin would one day change the world and replace the dollar.

But now he sees a new force emerging – a payment system created by the Chinese state and known as Digital Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP).

It’s really a digital version of China’s official currency, the yuan, and Mr

Musk’s Battery Day plan ‘stretches the bounds of imagination,’ but experts say the ambitious gambit will help Tesla fend off competition from GM and VW

Tesla outlined a path to cheaper and more efficient batteries on Tuesday.
  • Elon Musk said during Tuesday’s “Battery Day” that Tesla will design and produce its own battery cells.
  • The electric-car maker said the in-house cells will bring major cost savings and performance improvements that could lead to a $25,000 car in the coming years.
  • While Tesla probably won’t hit its most ambitious projections, experts said, the company’s big-picture approach should pay off in the long run.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Tesla’s predictions tend to follow a pattern: The electric-car maker says it’s super close to hitting an ambitious milestone, falls short of its aggressive timeline, eventually makes meaningful progress toward its goal, and is cheered on by investors and fans alike.

To take one recent example, Tesla CEO Elon Musk long promised the company’s Model 3 sedan would come with a

The Day – Mystic Knotwork owner named Small Business Person of the Year


Mystic — The U.S. Small Business Administration has recognized Matt Beaudoin, owner of Mystic Knotwork, as Connecticut’s Small Business Person of the Year.

Mark Hayward, interim director of SBA’s Connecticut District Office, presented a plaque to Beaudoin on Tuesday morning at the Cottrell Street location of Mystic Knotwork. The location is primarily a workshop, and Mystic Knotwork also has a retail storefront at the corner of East Main and Holmes streets, which opened in 2017.

Connecticut Small Business Development Center adviser Matt Nemeth nominated Beaudoin last fall, after working with him to secure capital funding.

Beaudoin said he learned of the award in March and was originally supposed to be honored this week in Washington, D.C., where he was looking forward to networking. It’s currently National Small Business Week, and because of the coronavirus pandemic, the SBA conference is instead being held virtually.

Hayward said Beaudoin “rose to the top”

NEW YORK, Sep 21 2020 (IPS) – The countries of Central Sahel—Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger—face an unprecedented crisis, marked by violent extremism, forced displacement, and rising insecurity. The sharp increase in armed attacks on communities, health centres, schools and other public institutions and infrastructure has disrupted livelihoods and access to social services. The impact on affected people is devastating.

As the international community responds to the crisis, we must meet immediate needs, and invest in long-term development. We must also work on shaping peace together, the theme of this year’s International Peace Day.

In Central Sahel, shaping peace together requires

How two sisters turned a mothers’ day surprise into a growing online business

Matikas Santos (Philstar.com) – September 21, 2020 – 5:51pm

MANILA, Philippines — A simple Mothers’ Day surprise by two sisters for their mom turned into a growing online business as they found a market of hungry quarantined Filipinos yearning to satisfy their cravings for sweet baked goodies.

Angelica Salac, 18, baked her mother’s favorite Brazo de Mercedes and since it was a big hit in the household, she and her sister Monica Salac, 22, got the idea to sell it online like so many others seeking additional income amid the pandemic.

“Madaming mga nagsa-start ng online business, lalo na sa food, at saka yung mga tao. nasa bahay lang so nakita namin na malaki din potential na mag-start ngayon,” Monica, an HRM graduate, told Philstar.com in an online video interview.

She has been under a no-work,
