Prodigy no longer? Coco Gauff makes French Open breakthrough at 17

By SAMUEL PETREQUIN and ANDREW DAMPF PARIS (AP) — If Coco Gauff keeps playing like this, she’s going to go from teenage prodigy to Grand Slam champion in a hurry.

Gauff lost only nine points on her serve and was also highly effective at the net, winning 13 of 17 points when she came forward —...

8 investors discuss Stockholm’s maturing startup ecosystem

In the realm of European startup ecosystems, Sweden — largely Stockholm — ranks very close to the behemoths of London, Paris and Berlin. And with 10 million people, the nation certainly punches above its weight, having produced unicorns such as Spotify and Klarna, to name only two. As a result, the eight investors we surveyed are characteristically bullish about the future, despite a pandemic strategy that became more restrictive in the second half of last year.

13 On-the-go Breakfast Spots to Fuel Up for the Day

Look, I understand the reasons to get to the mountain early: shorter lift lines, better snow, less crowds. But unless it’s a powder day, you’ll find me wandering to the mountain at about 10 a.m., aptly caffeinated and with a full belly. And I take the caffeinated/satiated part very seriously. I’m a huge breakfast fan. I grew up in New England, where bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches and black coffee reigned supreme but moved to Colorado where I discovered the magic of spicy breakfast burritos an...

Bjorn Warloe was living in Corvallis in 2003 and remembers reading a story in the Oregon State University student newspaper that Oregon had passed an “Idaho Stop” law which allows a bicycle user to treat a stop sign as a yield sign.

Airlines We Lost 2018

As we wind toward the end of the year, it is time to take a look back on what we’ve lost in 2018. Dozens of airlines failed this year, and that’s not a surprise. Not all of them were beloved, but they should still be honored for giving it their best shot. Fortunately, we had no Etihad-related failures this year after last year’s banner effort. That’s right, Alitalia lives to see another year, and we can all be thankful for that. Airlines in Venezuela weren’t nearly as lucky, nor were some of...
