EU leaders play down bank risks as economy weakens
European Union leaders are playing down the risk of a banking crisis developing from recent global financial turmoil and hitting an already weak economy
European Union leaders are playing down the risk of a banking crisis developing from recent global financial turmoil and hitting an already weak economy. The deliberations Friday by EU government heads in Brussels follow U.S. regulators shutting down two U.S. banks and a Swiss-orchestrated takeover of troubled lender Credit Suisse by rival UBS. The emergency actions on both sides of the Atlantic revived memories of the 2008 global financial meltdown and the ensuing EU sovereign debt crisis, which almost broke apart the euro currency now shared by 20 European countries. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz says “the banking system is stable in Europe.” Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte says “I think we are in good shape.” Read moreEU leaders play down bank risks as economy weakens

Sam Burns wins final Match Play in rout over Cameron Young
Sam Burns is the final winner of the Dell Match Play, and it was a dud of an ending
Sam Burns is the final winner of the Dell Match Play, and it was a dud of an ending. After so much excitement over four days at Austin Country Club, Burns beat Cameron Young in just 13 holes. The 6-and-5 victory is the second-largest margin over 18 holes in this tournament. There wasn't much Young could do against a guy who made eight birdies over his last 10 holes. The big excitement was Sunday morning. Burns narrowly escaped defending champion Scottie Scheffler in 21 holes. Young was 2 down to Rory McIlroy when he rallied to win in 19 holes.

Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy had to play some of their best golf just to reach the semifinals of the Dell Match Play. Scheffler was 2 down in the morning match and 3 down to Jason Day in the afternoon. He rallied to win both as he tries to join Tiger Woods as the only back-to-back winners of Match Play. McIlroy made nine birdies in the morning and eight in the afternoon. He needed them all. His 12-footer on the 18th beat Xander Schauffele. Also advancing to Sunday were Sam Burns and Cameron Young.

As a general rule, it’s a good idea to be wary of anecdotes.

I assumed that the reports were probably true, but also exaggerated and one-sided – li… Read moreColumn: Stanford law school not quite ready for the bar
