World stocks rise to fresh record highs as bond yields ease – business live
Markets shrug off rise in US inflation, as Tesco reports near-20% slide in 2020 profits despite ‘exceptionally strong sales’ 7.36am BST Good morning, and welcome to our rolling coverage of the world economy, the financial markets, the eurozone and business.Global stock markets have climbed to a new record as government bond yields eased, despite a rise in US inflation. Consumer prices rose by 0.6% in March from the month before, pushing the annual rate of inflation up to 2.6% from 1.7%. Once again, markets are looking on the the bright side, and despite that higher-than-expected inflation read, it’s been interpreted as a sign of better growth. We’ve seen support for those high-growth tech stocks, and other sectors exposed to economic growth, including financials.It will take a few more months of 2.6% CPI reads before markets become too concerned, however there are still plenty of warning signs, with supply chain disruptions putting upward pressure on prices, while recent prices paid data has also seen sharp moves to the upside. If these start to become sustained then we could well see further upward pressure on yields. For now, yields seem contained, hence the lack of dip in equity markets. Continue reading...

Here's Why Some Friends Fans Think Chandler Was Originally Meant To Be Gay
After 10 seasons, Friends came to a close in 2004 with one of its central couples, Chandler Bing and Monica Geller, adopting twins and moving out of New York and into the suburbs.Journalist Matt Baume, however, believes the show could have ended very differently if the creative team’s original plans for Chandler, played by Matthew Perry, had been executed.In a new video report, Baume ― who is the author of the 2015 book Defining Marriage and the host of Culture Cruise, an acclaimed YouTube series ― delves into thinly sourced but persistent reports that the creators of Friends had intended for Chandler to be a gay man, but changed him to a straight character after Matthew Perry was cast. He also breaks down a number of gay jokes ― many of them cringeworthy by modern standards ― presented in the show at the character’s expense as evidence of a defunct plot line.Speculation about Chandler’s sexuality can be traced back to the show’s earliest seasons.In a 1996 interview with Entertainment Weekly during Season 2, co-creator and executive producer David Crane dismissed such arguments. “No, Chandler isn’t gay,” he said at the time. “Nor will he be gay. It’s not as if he has a choice. He either is or he isn’t. And he happens not to be.”Many fans, however, remained unconvinced. And Matthew’s co-star Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay, gave credence to that theory in a 2014 interview with the Television Academy suggesting that she, too, believed the character was gay at first.Noting that Chandler possesses what he believes is “a gay sensibility, but no gay storylines,” Baume told HuffPost, “If they had made it fully gay ― written gay, played gay ― would that have been a good thing or a bad thing?”“On one hand, it would have been amazing to see a gay main character on one of the most popular shows in TV history,” he continued. “But on the other, Friends seemed to falter sometimes when they tackled queer topics. They’d often repeat the same simple joke, that it would be funny if a person was gay...″[The show] seemed to be at its best when telling heterosexual stories, and I’m not sure they could have pulled off the challenge of featuring TV’s most prominent gay main character.”Fans interested in reassessing Chandler’s sexuality for themselves will be able to get their fix later this year, when the hotly anticipated and much-delayed Friends reunion special debuts.Watch Matt Baume break down Chandler on Friends below.MORE FRIENDS:The One Where They All Get Back Together: Everything We Can Tell You About The Friends ReunionCould We BE Any More Excited?!

A Lonely Man by Chris Power review – breakdown in Berlin
Power is celebrated for his short stories, and his debut novel, about creative theft and Russian intrigue, is full of fine writingMany readers will immediately warm to a novel that begins in a bookshop. We’re in Berlin, and things couldn’t be more bookish. Our protagonist, Robert Prowe, has just met Patrick, a drunken ghostwriter, while reaching for the same book on one of the tables. A reading is about to begin. And then a story. A story about stories, books, writers.A Lonely Man is Chris Power’s first novel and is an interesting addition to the recent corpus of Berlin-based fiction. Power’s shimmering short-story collection, Mothers, was longlisted for the Folio prize, and this book deliberately draws separate narrative strands (and moods) together – partly to emphasise and play with the differences, partly to offer a consideration of the creative process itself.
