Gabriel also said that Berlin wanted to rule out quickly by law the possibility for utilities to reduce their financial liability regarding the de-nuclearization of the country.

British Formula 1 Grand Prix 2015: Results, Times for Practice and Qualifying

Lewis Hamilton will be looking to get back on track in the race for the Formula One world title in front of his adoring home supporters at the British Grand Prix this weekend.

The Mercedes man had his lead at the top of the standings cut down to just 10 points after team-mate Nico Rosberg surged to an impressive victory in Austria last time out. But given Lewis’ familiarity with the iconic Silverstone circuit and memories of his triumph here 12 months ago still fresh, the Brit will fancy his chances of getting back on the winning trail.

Preparations for this race will be vital, and after a turbulent time of things in the practice sessions in Austria, Hamilton will be hoping for a much smoother build-up to Sunday’s showpiece.

Kendrick Lamar Responds to Fox News’ Criticism of BET Performance

Kendrick Lamar recently jumped on a call with TMZ, providing a candid response to comments made by Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera earlier in the week. After Rivera accused Lamar of expressing “exactly the wrong message” by his staged performance standing on a vandalized police car during the BET Awards – even going so far as to mention the Charleston, South Carolina incident (for some inexplicable reason) – Lamar took the opportunity to clarify that his track “Alright” is intended to convey a positive message. Lamar continued to rebut, stating that Rivera’s reaction only serves to inflame the issue and stir up a flippant controversy by avoiding the truth.

UK services PMI jumps in June, signalling faster economic growth

A worker is pictured at a construction site in central LondonLONDON (Reuters) – – Britain's private-sector services grew more than expected last month, suggesting the economic recovery picked up going into the second half of the year, a survey showed on Friday. Combined with similar manufacturing and construction surveys earlier this week, Markit said the gain suggested Britain's economy expanded around 0.5 percent from April through June, compared with 0.4 percent in the first three months of the year. The latest services PMI makes it more likely the Bank of England will want to raise interest rates from a record low 0.5 percent later this year, Markit said.
