Cop car gets a lift after poor parking job

Physicists discover new solution to finding parking spots

Physicists Paul Krapivsky and Sidney Redner have come up with a mathematical solution for drivers to help them find parking.

It was a wheelie-bad parking job.

Police in Leeds, U.K., got an unexpected lift when they accidentally parked their patrol car over a set of retractable bollards near a pedestrian zone on Friday afternoon.

The bollards were protecting a pedestrian zone.

Witnesses report hearing a loud bang before seeing the front of the Peugeot compact raised into the air as the bollards extended on a scheduled timer.

Saul Webster, a street peddler at the Kirkland market that captured the incident on camera, told SWNS that he saw the baffled police walk away from the scene.

“They’d stopped to move the spice [sellers] on and when they pulled up, the bollards lifted and the car was stuck. The spice [sellers] were giving them grief and laughing at them.”

“Everyone was shouting and screaming at them.”

A police spokesperson said the vehicle was recovered and would be inspected for damage before being put back into service.

Nutriband Shares Jump 40% On New Manufacturing Deal

Shares of Nutriband Inc. (NTRB) jumped 40% driven by manufacturing deal for Diocheck Visual COVID-19 antibody indicator patch.

NTRB is currently trading at $10.41, up $3.01 or 40.68%, on the Nasdaq.

Nutriband, a company engaged in the development of pharmaceutical products, contract research and development services and the manufacture of transdermal products, Tuesday said it has inked a manufacturing agreement with San Diego-based Diomics for its Diocheck technology, a simple way for individuals to monitor for the presence of antibodies to COVID-19 over an extended period of time.

The contract with Diomics to manufacture Diocheck allows Nutriband and contract manufacturing subsidiary, Pocono Pharma, to showcase capabilities with innovative new patch technologies,” said Gareth Sheridan, CEO of Nutriband.

Treasuries Advance On Above Average Demand For Ten-Year Note Auction

With trading resuming following the long holiday weekend, treasuries moved to the upside over the course of the session on Tuesday.

Bond prices fluctuated in morning trading but climbed more firmly into positive territory in the afternoon. Subsequently, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, fell by 2.5 basis points to 1.580 percent.

The advance by treasuries came after the Treasury Department revealed this month’s auction of $38 billion worth of ten-year notes attracted above average demand.

The ten-year note auction drew a high yield of 1.584 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.58, while the ten previous ten-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.46.

The bid-to-cover ratio is a measure of demand that indicates the amount of bids for each dollar worth of securities being sold.

Earlier in the day, the Treasury had revealed below average demand for this month’s auction of $58 billion worth of three-year notes.

The three-year note auction drew a high yield of 0.635 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.36, while the ten previous three-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.45.

Following a couple quiet days on the economic front, trading on Wednesday may be impacted by reaction to a report on consumer price inflation as well as the minutes of the latest Federal Reserve meeting.

Bond traders are also likely to keep an eye on the results of the Treasury Department’s auction of $24 billion worth of thirty-year bonds.

An Iraqi citizen resident of Norway was caught doing 147 mph (236 kph) in Denmark on his way home from picking up a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Sypder he’d purchased in Germany.

He must now go to a court hearing to learn the fate of his car.

However it works out, he’ll also want to be careful driving the next time he’s in Australia, where a serial speeder’s Huracan was recently auctioned by the state under the provisions of a similar law.
