I. It’s 1995, and I’m in seventh-grade keyboarding class. The school computer lab has clunky greige Apple computers loaded with Mavis Beacon software. We dutifully practice placing our fingers on the “home row”: the left hand on ASDF , right on JKL; . We practice typing short words, then sentences, aiming for accuracy and speed while keeping those fingers on the home row. This goes on once a week for three months. The class is easy. I get a decent grade. Then we switch to Health class, which is much more exciting because it talks about s-e-x. Because it’s 1995, health class spends a lot of time teaching about contraceptive foam and the sponge. Neither the sponge nor the home row method will serve me in my adult life. II. It’s the week that vaccines become available to New Yorkers age 30+, and I’m venting to friends in a group chat that I haven’t been able to book an appointment online yet. “That’s because Katie is probably typing in that she lives in BROKOLYN NWE … [Read more...] about Why Am I Sp Bad At Typign?

The founder of Revolut is plotting a new fundraising that will value the company at more than $10bn (£7.2bn) and cement his status as one of Europe's youngest fintech billionaires. Sky News has learnt that the digital lender is lining up FT Partners, the US-based fintech-focused investment bank, to advise it on a new equity-raise that would take place after the summer. City sources said this weekend that the process had yet to get underway but that Revolut investors anticipated it valuing the company at between $10bn and $15bn (£10.8bn). Even at the lower end of that spectrum, it would make Nik Storonsky, the app's founder, a multibillionaire in dollar terms.

BRAVE Helen McCrory hid her secret cancer battle during her Good Morning Britain appearance just four weeks before her death. The hugely respected actress's death was announced yesterday in a statement issued by her husband Damian Lewis. Last month the 52-year-old made her final television appearance, sitting beside Damian as they discussed the Prince's Trust Awards on the ITV morning show. Only those closest to Helen had any idea what she was going through, and at one point presenter Kate Garraway asked her: "Are you alright Helen? You sound a bit croaky, have you got a sore throat?" The actress jokingly replied: "No, I’ve got children! Thank you for asking." "You've been shouting at them!" Kate replied. Soon after, Damian took over and spoke on behalf of the pair. The actress's devoted husband gazed lovingly at his wife throughout the interview. Damian, 50, had joined her on live television as she urged young people to use the charity's resources.
