World - WTA boss mulling radical format shake-up


Women`s tennis boss Steve Simon said he`s considering introducing super tie-breakers and no-ad scoring for singles matches in a radical move to shorten them and make them more TV-friendly. The much-criticised season schedule is also in the crosshairs with plans to split the calendar into `premium` events and `pathway` tournaments and reduce the load on players, Simon told AFP. `To think that we don`t need to adjust our format so we can play matches that are 60 to 90 minutes in length as opposed to three hours, I think is very short-sighted,` he said in an interview at the Wuhan Open in China.

World - Bank of England begins corporate debt purchases


The Bank of England on Tuesday began buying £10 billion of corporate debt under a wide-ranging stimulus programme aimed at propping up the economy after Britain voted to exit the EU. The BoE last month announced it would buy company bonds worth the equivalent of $13 billion or 11.6 billion euros over an 18-month period. It came as the BoE slashed its key interest rate by a quarter-point to a record-low 0.25 percent and expanded its main quantitative easing (QE) bond-buying scheme by £60 billion to £435 billion.

World - Tanker brings first US shale gas to Britain


A tanker carrying the first shipment of shale gas from the United States arrived on Tuesday in Britain, where there are currently no commercial fracking operations because of fierce public opposition. The ship arrived at Grangemouth, a sprawling energy complex on the River Forth near Edinburgh in Scotland, where the North Sea offshore oil and gas reserves are becoming too costly to extract. A £2 billion (2.3 billion euros, $2.6 billion) investment by Ineos, the world`s third largest chemical company, will create a `virtual pipeline` with eight tankers transporting regular shipments across the Atlantic to Britain and Norway.

World - Trump-Clinton debate seen by record 80.9 million TV viewers - CNN


Some 80.9 million Americans watched the first U.S. presidential debate between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump on television, setting a new viewer record for such events, CNN said on Tuesday. The figure includes the approximately 45 million who watched the 90-minute debate on the four main TV networks, as well as millions more who watched cable channels, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and other smaller outlets, CNN said. The figures, which are not final, beat the 80.6 million record set by the Jimmy Carter-Ronald Reagan TV presidential debate in 1980 but are below the 100 million viewers some analysts had predicted ahead of the face-off.
