Tune In: Fed Chair Jerome Powell Discusses Interest Rate Policy and Economic Outlook

More news - Recent news Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell will speak at the Economic Club of Washington, D.C., on Monday, providing insights into the central bank's interest rate policy and the broader economic landscape. Powell will engage in a discussion with David Rubenstein, president of the Economic Club and co-founder of The Carlyle Group.

The five-year impact of the new free kick rule in football

More news - Recent news In the fall of 2017, free kicks began to be considered a real offensive tool.

The players are spread out all over the pitch; the opposition have no idea whether the pass will be short, into the big hole in ...

Will the United States maintain its dominance in the Paris Olympic pools?

More news - News 24 hours For many years, the sound of "The Star-Spangled Banner" has been omnipresent in every Olympic swimming stadium. From the 1992 Games in Barcelona to the 2021 Games in Tokyo, which were postponed due to the pandemic, the U.S. swim team has won more gold medals than any other team. The last time Team USA did not win multiple golds in a single Olympics was 1988, when they finished second to East Germany. None of the current swimmers were alive then. American swimmers have dominated both the overall and gold medal standings for years, almost to the point where it has become a given. Of course, Michael Phelps' 23 gold medals in four Olympics played a significant role, but it wasn't just him. Americans have often been the best in the world in their major e...

Once considered a talented but unremarkable player, the American has become a global sensation in 2024. This newfound fame, however, presents a unique challenge for a man who previously held his privacy in high regard. Scheffler’s journey began with a dominant win at the Masters in 2022, cementing his place as a world-class golfer. However, his celebrity status remained relatively understated. Fast forward to 2024, and a series of events catapulted him into the spotlight. A series of major victories, including a second Masters victory, cemented his dominance. But it was a bizarre arrest in Louisville that truly propelled him into the pop culture stratosphere. Fa...
