  • British officials, citing worries that singer Chris Brown might pose a danger to British citizens, barred him from entering the United Kingdom for concerts this week, a UK border official said. The 21-year-old R&B singer was scheduled to perform Wednesday night in Glasgow, Scotland, with shows in three English cities — Manchester, Birmingham and London — scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Sunday, according to his official website. He was then scheduled to perform in Cork, Ireland next Tuesday.
  • This is one of the first interesting cases of the estate tax repeal (valid for this year only).
  • Love this ad campaign. Porsche’s response: “Porsche has the most racing victories of any manufacturer out there—28,000 and counting—maybe we should go for 28,001,” the brand’s media relations manager says. “We just need to see what they’re up to.” Mini, of course, which would be expected to lose, therefore has little to lose—and just comes off as good humored and fun loving.
  • A lot of interesting books that I’d want to check out
  • Switzerland’s lower house rejected a bill that would have allowed the government to provide the U.S. with the names of UBS account holders
