Santino Ferrucci spent four hours in the simulator Friday, picked up some Bojangles french fries and headed to the team shop for last-minute preparations for his NASCAR debut. Ferrucci is hitting a reset for the third time in his short career, moving from IndyCar to NASCAR for what he hopes will be a firm landing spot. Ferrucci is in the process of relocating to North Carolina — hence his new affinity for the Charlotte-based Bojangles chicken chain — and adjusting to stock cars after so many years driving in open-wheel series.
Villagers living on both sides of the Line of Control dividing the Himalayan region of Kashmir welcomed an agreement between long-time foes India and Pakistan to stop shelling from each side, but some were sceptical it would hold. The nuclear-armed neighbours signed a ceasefire agreement along the Line of Control (LoC) in 2003, but that has frayed in recent years and there have been mounting casualties. In a joint statement on Thursday, India and Pakistan said they would observe a ceasefire.
Lawmakers due to attend conservative conference where crowds booed hosts for asking guests to wear masks
At least two political rights groups advocating democracy have quietly quit Hong Kong and moved overseas, unnerved by a national security law that has fanned fears over the erosion of freedoms under China’s rule, sources told Reuters. In the past, China-focused rights groups had valued the wide-ranging autonomy, including freedom of speech and assembly, guaranteed for Hong Kong when control over the former British colony was returned to Beijing in 1997. But some non-government organisations (NGOs) say the new legislation means they face a choice of either having to leave Hong Kong or work with the same kind of fears and constraints they would encounter in mainland China.
It was the old Prince Harry that we all know and love, game for a laugh and happy to send himself up. Larking about with US chat show host James Corden on an open top bus tour through Los Angeles, there is no denying Harry’s first interview since leaving the Royal family was 17 minutes of TV gold. From the revelation that the Queen gave her great-grandson Archie a waffle maker for Christmas to the sixth-in-line to the throne rapping the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme tune, it was pitched as light entertainment. But it soon became apparent that the carefully-choreographed recording had a much heavier agenda than casual chit-chat over tea and scones. Borrowing boldly from the Hollywood playbook of mixing business with pleasure, the megabucks deal the Sussexes signed with Netflix last September came along for the ride as Harry extolled the virtues of The Crown. Most of his relatives have been so offended by its depiction of the Royals as gin-swilling sociopaths that they have refused to watch it, but not seemingly, the Queen’s grandson, who prefers it to “the stories written about my family, or my wife or myself". I’m not quite sure Prince Charles would agree, but then again, he’s not the one paying the bills any more. While next Sunday’s 90-minute Oprah special is largely focusing on Meghan, with a side order of Harry, this was about serving up a slice of Montecito monarchy to an eager American audience. Hence the rather laboured references to Royals not carrying cash or travelling on buses, which the Yanks lap up as greedily as episodes of Downton Abbey.

Republican gathering began in 1974 and sees American conservatives debate social worries but has struggled with position on 'alt-right' in recent years
The House passed legislation Friday that would create about 1.5 million acres of new wilderness and incorporate nearly 1,200 miles of waterways into the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System as Democrats move to protect more public lands — with President Joe Biden's blessing. Biden has set a goal of conserving at least 30% of U.S. lands and ocean by 2030, a move that supporters say will help curb global warming while preserving some of the nation's most scenic lands for future generations of Americans to enjoy. Republicans said the wilderness area designations would restrict use of those lands and make them more susceptible to catastrophic forest fires.
President Joe Biden is still committed to raising the U.S. minimum wage to $15 after a key Senate referee ruled the provision could not be included in the COVID-19 relief bill, a top White House economic adviser said on Friday. White House National Economic Council Director Brian Deese, in an interview on MSNBC, said the administration was disappointed by the Senate parliamentarian's Thursday ruling and would consult with congressional leaders about the path forward.
