Zimbabwe warns brutal crackdown is 'foretaste of things to come'

Sunday 19:59 GMT

A brutal crackdown in Zimbabwe that has followed protests against fuel price rises is “just a foretaste of things to come”, the president’s spokesman has said.

The violence is the worst seen in Zimbabwe for a decade, prompting many to make comparisons with the worst days of the 37-year rule of the autocratic former president Robert Mugabe. The government has called the unrest “terrorism” and blamed the opposition party, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a ruling Zanu-PF party stalwart, took power when Mugabe was ousted in a military takeover in November 2017 and then won contested elections last year.

Beleaguered Apple Stock Is ‘Still Not That Cheap,’ Says Analyst

For non-personal use or to order multiple copies, please contact Dow Jones Reprints at 1-800-843-0008 or visit www.djreprints.com.

Sacconaghi, who has a Market Perform rating and a $160 price target on Apple stock, thinks that that isn’t a risk, though he has other concerns about the company. Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi wrote Friday that investors have lately wondered whether another risk–that the makers of popular software products, such as Netflix (NFLX) or “Fortnite” maker Epic Games might seek to flee the App store as part of a broader move that could endanger a valuable source of high-margin revenue–could be the “next shoe to drop.”

The Rise of Global, Superstar Firms, Sectors and Cities

Saturday 02:24 GMT

A few months ago, McKinsey published Superstars: the Dynamics of Firms, Sectors, and Cities Leading the Global Economy, a research article that aimed to assess the extent to which a superstar effect can be observed in each of these areas as well as to examine their key characteristics, similarities, differences and economic implications.

“Just as the economy confers disproportionate rewards to superstar talent, superstar cities… similarly tower above the rest,” wrote urban studies professor and author Richard Florida. “They are not just the places where the most ambitious and most talented people want to be - they are where such people feel they need to be.”

Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, who has settled down in Marcy, about 45 miles east of Syracuse, is living in a skull-decorated ramshackle home she shares with her boyfriend – a Manson-obsessed ex-con who killed his brother-in-law and is now working at a nearby correctional facility, according to a profile of Fromme published this week by the New York Post.

14 tomato braises to keep you warm until spring

Today 09:54 GMT

I use tomato paste, a concentrated form of tomato puree, when I want to add deep, umami-packed tomato flavor to my braises.

Tomatoey braises are my ideal comfort food when it's cold outside: They can simmer away while I focus on other projects around the house, or better yet, just cozy up with my kids on the sofa reading a book or watching a movie. I stockpile them in the winter like squirrels hoard nuts, because they're the foundation of some of my all-time-favorite braises (think: pork ragu, chicken cacciatore, and saucy short ribs).
