Why the Nissan 370Z marks the end of an era

Today 17:18 GMT

Problem for the Nissan 370Z is, life has moved really fast, and we fear the punchy Zed car might have stopped to look around for a little too long.

First previewed in 2008 and introduced in 2009, the 370Z took over from the riotous little lump of 350Z; a line of rear-drive Nissan sports coupe that could trace a lineage all the way back to the halcyon days of the 1970s and the very first ‘Z’ car, the 240Z.

Today 17:17 GMT

Castillo hit a career-high 20 home runs for Baltimore last season and then signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the White Sox.

The Rays, without many experienced starters, have used other relievers to start games this season, working two or three innings to begin a bullpen relay. But for Romo, whose sweeping slider gives him a distinct edge against right-handed hitters, they offered a fresh twist on his usual job.

Today 17:18 GMT

Call it the market- timing industry’s dirty little secret: bear markets and heightened volatility are good for business.

We have no interest in market timers just when we need them most, and then — after the market has declined and, in some senses, it’s too late — we suddenly become interested. This discussion goes to the heart of why our emotions are unreliable guides to investing.

Reality check: Are those weight-loss shakes you’ve been drinking ineffective?

Today 17:17 GMT

Drinking weight-loss shakes may not be benefiting you in your weight-loss journey, a new study by the European Association for the Study of Obesity says.

According to researchers, nearly 80 per cent of commercially sold weight-loss shakes in the U.K. were found to be labelled with unsubstantiated health claims – claims researchers say are exaggerated or untrue. Weight loss isn’t always an indication of better health – or greater happiness. To find this out, Dr. Kelly Johnston and her team from LighterLife and Kings College London analyzed all commercially available “meal replaces for weight control” shakes sold in the U.K. in 2017.
