‘There will be shocks’: Yngve Slyngstad, Norway’s $1tn man | Financial Times

‘There will be shocks’: Yngve Slyngstad, Norway’s $1tn man | Financial Times Norway’s sovereign wealth fund is a fairytale of global finance. In less than 25 years investing the energy riches of the North Sea, it has grown into a $1.2tn giant; it owns 1.5 per cent of the world’s publicly traded companies. Who more stimulating for me to have my first formal lunch with in six months, I think, than the man who for more than a decade presided over this behemoth — and used its heft to hold comp...

Oxford at Christmas: a car-free trip to a city of dreaming spires

The city’s cultural highlights are part of a Christmas-tinged visit – by rail and bus – that also includes a walk by the Thames and Blenheim Palace’s festive extravaganzaA gust of cinnamon from a pine-wreathed glühwein stand while the carousel plays Frosty the Snowman, and neon snowflakes decorate the neoclassical columns. A Pavlovian sense of festivity fights with my inner Scrooge. On the journey, there were still smudges of autumnal ochre on the wooded hills outside the train window. But Oxfor...

Maneckji Bhumgara: The Indian bowler who took American cricket by storm in the 1900s

Southern California discovered cricket in the late 19th century, two centuries after the sport reached American shores, but the region lost little time in taking to the game with enthusiasm. The cricketing season began every summer in May. Several counties—including Los Angeles, Santa Monica, San Diego, and San Francisco (in mid-California)—had their own leagues.

Developing a concept with blood, sweat and expertise | By Paul Sarlas

Growing up in a family who owned and operated a fast food business, I spent most of my early years working in the family business; from weekend shifts during school term and remembering my school holidays as days in the shop rather than on the beach. Unknowingly I was learning valuable lessons in business operations and management. When completing high school, I continued to work in the family business for some time, whilst studying part time to obtain the theoretical techniques in busine...

Kitchen of the Week: Plain English Goes Contemporary in a Converted London Schoolhouse

Built in 1859, the schoolhouse in London’s Marylebone neighborhood had in recent years been home to a surprising mix of fashion showrooms and an evangelical library. The owners themselves, a husband and wife in their sixties, kept offices here, and as they worked, they envisioned an entirely new use for the structure: their own post-retirement, airy-modern living quarters. With plans to remove recent partitions and make the most of the original features—Victorian cast-iron girders, steel stairs,...

And with her former business partner, Antonia Robinson, she deftly made her mark in the fashion world by dressing Camilla Parker Bowles in flattering dove gray silk (take a look) for her 2005 wedding to Prince Charles. Known for her quietly cerebral and refined approach to design—she says she takes her influences “from the fluidity and elegance of dancers’ costumes, the pared-down simplicity of Scandinavian design, a...
