bloomberg.comBiggest Worry About U.S. Yield Climb May Be Its Lack of TriggerAs long as interest rates are climbing because the U.S. economy is in good health, then it just amounts to “normalization,” JPMorgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon reassured this month in advising investors to prepare for 4 percent 10-year Treasury yields.
cyclingweekly.comVan Vleuten takes rainbow win at Emakumeen Bira time trialAnnemiek van Vleuten bagged her second win from two outings in the rainbow skinsuit, winning stage two of Emakumeen Bira in the Basque Country on Sunday. The 35-year-old was nine seconds behind Dutch compatriot Anna van der Breggen (Boels-Dolmans) at the intermediate split after 13 of the 26.6km course, but recovered to beat the Olympic champion by 14 seconds. Former word time trial champion Lisa Brennauer (Wiggle-High5) finished third, 44 seconds behind. Time trials are few and far between in women’s cycling and this was only the second time the Dutch woman had raced since winning the title last September. With that victory she now has a 100% strike rate in the discipline. How it happened Though there were two short steep climbs on the 26.6km test, the rest of the course was flat and one for the pure testers. Fifth down the start ramp in the small Basque town of Agurain was former German time trial champion Mieke Kröger (Virtu), who set the early target of 35.32. However, having started early in the day after an inopportune puncture ruined her GC chances on Stage one, former British champion Hayley Simmonds (WNT-Rotor) set a new bench mark, four seconds faster. The Cambridge graduate occupied the leader’s hot seat in the finish town of Gastiez for some time, before the race heated up as the overall favourites arrived home. A flurry of riders deposed her from her seat before Mitchelton-Scott’s New Zealand champion Georgia Williams knocked 18 seconds off the Brit’s time. That was not the last we saw of the British riders though, with Hannah Barnes (Canyon-SRAM) stopping the clock two seconds faster than her compatriot, ultimately finishing 11th, with Simmonds one place behind her. Having started the day sixth on GC van Vleuten was able to savour her winning time as the final five riders crossed the line unable to best her. With Brennauer unable to match the other top four riders in the hills they will tackle in the final two stages it is now down to van der Breggen and Moolman-Pasio to attack van Vleuten. Both are arguably better climbers, though they will need to be aware of the bonus seconds available over the next two days is they are to win the overall. Tomorrow will see the peloton tackle two second and one third category climbs during the 114.5km course starting and finishing in Aretxabaleta.

local.theonion.com5-Year-Old Explorer Makes Contact With Life-Forms In Adjacent BoothMERIDIAN, ID—Approaching the mysterious beings with a sense of curiosity and wonder, 5-year-old explorer Olivia Reynolds reportedly made contact Wednesday with two unknown life-forms in an adjacent booth at a local diner. According to witnesses, the harrowing journey began when the intrepid Reynolds stood up on her seat and peered over the padded vinyl backrest, greeting the small clan of exotic creatures by saying, “Hi.” After making initial contact, Reynolds reportedly extended the gift of a broken crayon as a sort of peace offering between herself and the peculiar organisms as she probed deeper into their culture by asking, “Who are you?” and, “Do you like dinosaurs?” Once Reynolds had gained the trust of the entities, the pre-kindergartener then attempted to embed herself in their community by boldly climbing over the divider and using their table to prop herself up. At press time, Reynolds had retrieved a piece of bacon for later analysis and was fleeing back to the safety of her own kind.
