Periwinkle Blue is the fifth most popular colour, while Sky Blue comes in third. And, according to research from Sell House Fast, blue is the most valuable front door colour to have. While the research didn't specify a shade of blue, having a blue front door can add an estimated £4,000 to the value of a property. The survey analysed over 1,000 properties on Zoopla, all with 3 bedrooms and a garden. Ten properties of each door colour were analysed randomly to see if there was a price difference on average. "Colour is a powerful tool to...
    Current gasoline prices are shown in Garden Grove, California, March 29, 2022.Mike Blake | Reuters Gasoline prices are a wildcard for consumer wallets this summer, as tight supply and uncertainty in Ukraine could drive fuel costs sharply higher. Gasoline prices are climbing towards $5, and they seem set to stay high even beyond the peak driving season in July. Already, Yardeni Research projects households are spending the equivalent of $5,000 a year on gasoline, compared with $2,800 a year ago. In a normal summer, gasoline prices rise into May and then peak in the middle of the month. Summer driving season kicks off at the end of the month on Memorial Day weekend, with the largest number of drivers hitting the roads in July — just after the Fourth of July holiday. And with inflation running at more than 8%, drivers are unlikely to catch a break this year. After dipping in April, the price of gasoline has been rising this month to record levels as oil prices climb. Gasoline experts see prices rising to $5 or more per gallon,...
    Workers operate a drilling rig for an EBR Energy LP natural gas well near Columbus, Texas.Scott Dalton | Bloomberg | Getty Images U.S. natural gas prices more than doubled since the start of the year, and this summer's air conditioning season could send them soaring by at least another 25%. In the futures market, gas prices surged 4% Tuesday as hot spring weather in the southern U.S. pressured a market that has already been concerned about tight supplies. The forecast points to warmer weather across the south to continue. "In the last month, there has not been a meaningful uptick in U.S. lower 48 states production," said Matt Palmer, senior director North American natural gas at S&P Global Commodity Insights. "You're seeing exports running full out on LNG; power burn from the power sector is really strong and layer in the heat we're seeing and the expectation that the southern tier of the continent in May and June will see well above normal temperatures. That's a recipe for higher prices." Natural gas futures were trading at about $8.30 per million...
    (CNN)A seven-foot man pulls up at a Serbian stable in a horse-drawn carriage. Within moments, he's in tears. Far away from the glitz and glamor where he showcases his many skills, Nikola Jokic is being presented with the trophy given to the National Basketball Association's (NBA) Most Valuable Player (MVP) outside a horse stable in his home country. After another dominant year, Jokic was named MVP for the second straight season, in doing so becoming the 15th player in NBA history to win the MVP multiple times.As a youngster, Jokic says he never harbored dreams of even playing the sport he has come to excel at; he was too busy mucking out the stables. Jokic accepts his MVP award at a stable in Serbia. "I was cleaning the boxes. I was cleaning the horses. At that age, I was not thinking about basketball at all, I'm not going to lie."Read MoreFast forward to 2022 and Jokic has come up smelling of roses after the 27-year-old big man became the second player in a row to win it in successive seasons...
    Netflix customers are threatening to cancel their subscriptions if the streaming service starts showing adverts to those on cheaper deals. Yesterday it emerged that Netflix has sped up plans to introduce a lower-priced ad-supported subscription plan, following its first fall in subscriber numbers in a decade. The new plan is now expected to be introduced by the end of the year, according to a note to employees, obtained by The New York Times on Tuesday. However, Netflix subscribers have not reacted well to the news, with many claiming they will quit the service if they start seeing ads.   'I've been a @netflix customer since the time when you had to send the disc back in the mail,' wrote Twitter user @GGnotGIGI713. 'If ads go on my PAID SUBSCRIPTION ACCOUNT, I'm gone for good. This is not negotiable.' Another, who goes by the handle @UCantCensorThis, wrote: 'Hey @netflix. I'm letting you know now that if I EVER see a single ad interrupt anything I'm watching on your service, I will cancel faster than you can say 'commerical break'.' Meanwhile, industry experts said that, while the new...
    In this article NFLXReed Hastings, co-founder, chairman, and co-chief executive officer of Netflix, arrives for the annual Allen and Co. Sun Valley media conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, U.S. July 6, 2021.Brian Losness | ReutersNetflix could roll out its lower-price, ad-supported tier as early as this year, a source familiar with the matter told CNBC. Netflix executives told employees in a note they were working to introduce the tier by the last three months of 2022. That would put it on a much faster track than Netflix originally indicated. During its most recent earnings conference call, co-CEO Reed Hastings said the company was still figuring out the model and an ad-supported option wouldn't be available on the service for a year or two. But Netflix has struggled with a stagnating subscriber base and a plunging stock, down more than 71% year to date. An ad-supported tier could help attract and retain price-conscious consumers. Netflix is also expecting to start cracking down on password sharing in that same time period. The company said last month it estimates more than...
    APPLE may hike the price of its next iPhone outside of the U.S. According to one expert, the iPhone 14 will cost more as a result of inflation and the loss of Russian revenue due to the war in Ukraine. 1Apple is rumoured to be releasing a new iPhone in SeptemberCredit: Alamy On top of all that, fresh Covid-19 lockdowns in China continue to slow assembly lines ahead of the device's rumoured September launch. The grim prediction was made by analyst Chris Caso from New York-based financial services firm Raymond James. PhoneArena reported Monday that Caso warned of rising prices for the iPhone 14 range. That means the new mobiles will cost even more than last year's iPhones, which ranged in price from £679 to £1,049. Caso wrote in a note to investors that poor exchange rates are also contributing to what could prove to be a tough year for Apple. That's despite Apple last week posting strong results in its latest earnings report, with iPhone revenue up five per cent year-on-year. "Apple posted a strong March quarter, but commentary...
    Russia's President Vladimir Putin (L) and Russian Central Bank Governor Elvira NabiullinaAlexei Nikolsky\TASS via Getty Images The Central Bank of Russia has cut its key interest rate to 14% from 17% as it looks to mitigate the impact of international economic sanctions. In the aftermath of Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the ensuing unprecedented Western sanctions, the central bank is juggling a sharply shrinking economy and skyrocketing inflation. Economists expect a double-digit contraction for the economy, and inflation in excess of 20% in 2022. Russian inflation reached 16.7% in March and the central bank said on Friday that it expects annual inflation of between 18% and 23% this year. The central bank implemented an emergency hike of the key rate from 9.5% to 20% in February, days after the invasion of Ukraine, in a bid to support its plunging ruble currency.Loading chart... However, with the ruble now returning to pre-war levels, policymakers are turning their attention to recalibrating the economy in an effort to absorb the impact of punitive sanctions from international powers. "The external environment for the Russian economy...
    DEONTAY WILDER will return to the ring this year in another bid to reclaim the WBC heavyweight title.

    SACRAMENTO —  The most contentious and closely watched California election in 2022 is likely to be the race for attorney general, where voters will choose in June from the liberal incumbent who was appointed to the job last year, three unheralded challengers and an openly gay career prosecutor whose campaign could hinge on the public’s new fears about crime. For state Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta, the timing of his first statewide campaign could be challenging. The race coincides with increased scrutiny of recent criminal justice reform efforts, a juxtaposition that his opponents see as an opportunity to pin the blame for rising crime on Democrats. They believe that new leadership at the California Department of Justice will strengthen law and order and bring political balance back to Sacramento. Gov. Gavin Newsom tapped Bonta last year to be the first Filipino American to serve as California attorney general after then-Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra was appointed U.S. Health and Human Services secretary. Before his appointment, the Democrat spent eight years in the state Assembly focused on efforts to modify the criminal...
    Getty Former Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris, now of the LA Clippers. The Boston Celtics put together a great roster this season. They ended the season as the second seed in the Eastern Conference and hold a 2-0 lead over the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are leading the way with a solid cast of role players behind them. That being said, Boston has parted ways with its fair share of quality  Over the past few seasons, guys like Gordon Hayward, Al Horford, Kemba Walker, Kelly Olynyk, and Daniel Theis have departed from Boston. Even lower-level players like Max Strus and Javonte Green have gone on to find success in other cities. And while Horford and Theis have made their way back to Boston, before this year, it was a rarity to see a player return to the Celtics. However, according to a recent rumor, one former Celtic could be on the move this offseason. Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reported on April 19 that the...
    Hong Kong (CNN Business)Ukraine could lose almost half of its economy this year as a result of Russia's invasion, according to the World Bank.In a report published Sunday, the bank estimated that the country's GDP could decline by 45.1% this year, although it noted that "the magnitude of the contraction will depend on the duration and intensity of the war."Since the incursion began, vast swathes of Ukraine's infrastructure have been devastated, with many bridges and neighborhoods damaged or destroyed. Some areas, including ports, have been hit by blockades, while farmland around the country has been turned into battlefields.Ukraine was a major exporter of wheat and sunflower oil before the war, and this year's planting season is being disrupted by fighting. Farmers also face difficulty accessing machinery and other essential products that would typically arrive through Black Sea ports. Russia's economy has already fallen into recession, with economic output expected to drop by 11.2% this year, the World Bank estimates.

    The Oscars board will meet this Friday to discuss how to discipline Will Smith for slapping Chris Rock at this year's ceremony, days after the actor resigned from the Academy and said he would 'accept any further consequences.' David Rubin, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, told the board Wednesday that he's moving a meeting originally scheduled for April 18 to this Friday at 9am PST. 'Following Mr. Smith's resignation of his Academy membership on Friday, April 1, suspension or expulsion are no longer a possibility, and the legally prescribed timetable no longer applies.   'It is in the best interest of all involved for this to be handled in a timely fashion,' he wrote in a letter. The board has a few punishments it could hand out. They could make Smith ineligible for future awards or bar him from attending future ceremonies temporarily or permanently. They could also strip Smith, 53, of the Academy Award for best actor that he won less than an hour after the onstage assault -  though the last time the board...
    With the NFL draft only three weeks away, Brad Biggs takes a spin through the weekly Chicago Bears mailbag. I was struck by Matt Eberflus’ statement that he wanted to play the nickel defense 85% of the time. It seems to me if you are going to do that, you need to be reasonably confident that you can stop the run with the extra defensive back in the game. Do you think that this means we will see more big nickel, where the extra defensive back is a safety, than we have seen in the past? — Tom S., Chicago Eberflus talked about using the nickel defense for the vast majority of snaps when he was asked at the owners meetings about a strong-side linebacker for the base defense. “We play with a lot of nickel,” he said. “You play almost 85% nickel during the course of a season, so that’s a big piece. For the Sam position, we really want that guy to be able to swing into the inside backer spots at a Mike or Will spot, so...
    An economist has claimed the US stock market has already hit its lowest point for 2022 after Russia invaded Ukraine - although that war and soaring inflation could prove him badly wrong.    Tom Lee, managing partner at Fundstrat, said that as long as there's no recession due to a continuation of the war or the 40 year-spike in the cost of living the S&P could surge to 5,100 by the end of the year. As of Sunday night, it sits at 4,545.86 points.  Lee believes there's a roughly 90 percent chance that the market won't slip below the 4,114 low of February 24, when the invasion began.  The upside would be a 13 percent gain from current levels and a 24 percent rise from the late February nadir.  'We think lows for 2022 are in with >88% probability, [but] we still see stocks in a 'jagged' recovery in 1H2022. Full risk-on coming in 2H2022, [where the] S&P 500 can exceed 5,100 before year-end,' Lee told Business Insider.  Tom Lee, managing partner at Fundstrat, said that as long as there's no...
    After the driest January and February in the Bay Area’s recorded history came and went, March is expected to end on a wet note, with the biggest storm since the new year expected to drench the region Sunday. A low-pressure system is moving from the eastern Pacific towards California and is expected to make it way along the Central Coast Sunday night into Monday, with the front moving onshore by Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Lower elevations in the San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay region could get between a quarter to a half an inch of rain along the coastal hills, while the wettest spots, including the Santa Cruz Mountains and mountains along Central Coast including Big Sur, could receive between one to two inches. “I’d rate it a moderate strength system,” said forecaster Ryan Walbrun. “Amounts are not copious and not extreme by any stretch of the measure, but we should get some beneficial rain.” Wet weather makes its return late Sunday into Monday. In fact most of us should get a decent (and much...
    JUST weeks since inflation hit a 40-year high, prices are continuing to trend in the same direction. Across the board, households are paying more for gas, food and housing. 1Gas prices have hit $6 per gallon in parts of California A March analyst note from Yardeni Research estimated that a recent spike in gas prices could add $2,000 a year to the typical budget. That's on top of another $1,000 in additional costs for food, it added. In early March, the Labor Department reported consumer inflation hit 7.9% for February. The 7.9% rate doesn't include the gas surges that followed Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which happened on February 24.

    Getty Chukwuma Okorafor was too expensive for the Bears, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. The Chicago Bears have had a relatively quiet free agency period this offseason, but according to one top NFL insider, the Bears had their eye on a few players in particular, but didn’t want to get into a bidding war or overspend. In his March 23 column for ESPN, insider Jeremy Fowler reported that Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Chukwuma Okorafor was one of those players. Still just 24 years old, the right tackle has spent the last four seasons with the Steelers, who wound up re-signing him to a three-year, $29.25 million deal that includes a $9 million signing bonus along with $20.5 million in the first two years, per Spotrac. Apparently, new Bears general manager Ryan Poles wasn’t willing to pay that much.

    An employee arranges Apple iPhones as customer shop at the Apple Store on 5th Avenue shortly after new products went on sale in Manhattan, in New York City, March 18, 2022.Mike Segar | Reuters Apple is preparing a hardware subscription service for iPhones which could launch as soon as the end of this year, Bloomberg reported Thursday. The service would allow customers to buy an iPhone through monthly payments, similar to how users currently subscribe to iCloud, according to the report. Apple declined to comment. The move would represent the culmination of a longtime Apple investor desire for the company to sell its hardware as a subscription. Doing so would boost recurring revenue and could lead to an increase in the stock price. Analysts have long been wary that Apple's prodigious hardware sales are a "hits business," and believe that increasing predictable subscription revenue could prompt investors to value Apple more highly. Apple stock briefly rose on the news before giving up its gains. It was up less than 1% during trading on Thursday. Apple already offers several methods to...
    ELECTRIC cars are very sought-after thanks to their zero-emission and high-quality features. Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently reported that the long-awaited Cybertruck will likely arrive in 2023. 3With delays, the Cybertruck is finally anticipated to reveal itself by 2023 With EVs gaining immense popularity throughout America, there is currently too much demand and not enough vehicles to fulfill supply.
