Watching the ambulance go past, a sixth sense told me it had come for John

I’d been round many times over the past few months, after he suffered a stroke from which he was making a chequered recovery. The main road is quite wide, so the traffic was managing to get around the ambulance reasonably easily. Perhaps some drivers would have spared a thought for the person the paramedics were attending – so early in the morning, too. But for most commuters streaming past I imagine the parked emergency vehicle represented nothing more than a minor obstacle in the course of their drive to work. Although it was a long terrace, a sixth sense told me the paramedics must be in John’s house. I’d been there many times over the past few months, after he suffered a stroke from which he was making a chequered recovery. I eyed the ambulance as I drew near, wondering whether to pull over and offer help. But the crew would be more than capable. If, after assessing the situation, they thought my input would be useful, they would ring the surgery. It was better to finish my journey and start seeing my booked appointments. I might need to be back at John’s later in the day. I drove on by. I hadn’t heard anything by lunchtime, so assumed he must have required admission. Anothe...

More than a million residents across New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont remained without

More than a million residents across New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont remained without electricity on Tuesday in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. Irene hit  New York City on Sunday  as a weakened tropical storm after raking the Eastern seaboard from North Carolina to New Jersey. So far, the storm has killed at least 44 people. With Irene’s brutal rain replaced by crisp temperatures and brilliant blue skies, utility repair crews, cleanup teams and state and federal relief officials crisscrossed the region to assess the damage and reassure residents that help was on its way. Track the latest Atlantic hurricanes and tropical storms, and look back over past seasons at WSJ’s Hurricane Tracker. A southerly dip in a jet stream on the U.S. mainland and warmer-than-usual water temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean are helping push Hurricane Irene farther north along the Eastern seaboard than most tropical storms, say meteorologists. But the Category 3 hurricane also could lose much of its force if it moves slowly over cooler waters north of the Carolinas, they add.

Grill Accessories and Grilling Tools for the Best At-Home BBQ Experience

So you think you can grill? You might have the grill itself — that’s the easy part. Now comes not the hard part, per se, but the fun part: outfitting your grill with all the tools and toys to turn you into a true grillmaster. From tools to help get your fire started (briquettes, blowpokes), to things to put on there once it’s going (grill baskets, cast-iron pans) to oh-so-chic apparel to outfit yourself (a headlamp!), here’s what pitmasters and seasoned outdoor chefs recommend to become the master of your fire-cooked domain. For the charcoal itself, you could go with standard Kingsford briquettes. Or make like chef Brenna Sanders of Effervescence in New Orleans, who loves Pok Pok Thaan charcoal, which is made from rambutan fruit wood and bound with tapioca starch. It’s an eco-friendly alternative to the popular Japanese binchotan charcoal (which requires a specific kind of grill, generates “the kind of hellish heat imagined in the pages of Milton or Dante,” and is in such high demand that the white oak it comes from is nearly endangered). “I love Thaan charcoal not only because it burns hot and clean, making it great for searing in the true flavor of your ingredients, but also b...

Amazon To Curb Bulk Orders From Small Suppliers | PYMNTS.com Amazon To Curb Bulk Orders From Small Suppliers To Cut Costs

Amazon is reportedly in the midst of reshaping relationships with several of its longtime vendors, according to Bloomberg. The lasting effect will be that bulk orders “dry up” for many suppliers, most of them classified as smaller firms. The latest actions come after an initial halt, the news outlet reported, that occurred months ago. During that action, Amazon stopped orders from suppliers, reportedly without explanation, then started up those orders again. At the time, the company said that it was looking to get rid of counterfeit products being sold. But now comes the purge, one the report said will “upend” relations between the eCommerce giant and vendors, with the primary impact being felt across bulk orders, unnamed sources told the news outlet. The move would put more of Amazon’s emphasis on cutting costs and buying in bulk (to ensure supply), through wholesale purchases from companies that include giants in verticals as far-flung toys and consumer packaged goods, such as Lego and Procter & Gamble. It’s a competitive shot across the bow against other firms seeking to make inroads into eCommerce, such as Target and Walmart, where digital sales have been gaining momentu...

At least 77 people lost their lives At the gate of Mezhyhirya, the estate Viktor Yanukovych built with the money he stole from the people of Ukraine, a stall is selling rolls of toilet paper printed with the face of Vladimir Putin. Beside them are three large, flat, plastic loaves of bread, painted gold. Viktor Nestulia, director of innovation projects at Transparency International Ukraine, taps one with his finger. “When they came here after the revolution of dignity, they found a loaf made of solid gold, so this is a copy,” he says. “That’s what it is here. You will see.” He’s not wrong. Inside Mezhyhirya, we pass a yacht pier, a shooting range, a boxing gym, an ostrich farm, a petting zoo, a...
