Women half as likely to start their own business. Women are half as likely as men to start their own business, and only a fifth of smaller firms are led by females, according to a government study. Ministers told the BBC that this is creating a "significant pool" of untapped potential. "To better drive the UK's economy, we need to understand, and tackle, the barriers and reasons as to why this is." Editor
  3. Captain Cook’s ship Endeavour ‘found off US’. Marine archaeologists believe they may have found the wreck of Captain Cook’s ship Endeavour off the east coast of the US.

It was later used during the American War of Independence and scuttled off Newport, Rhode Island, in 1778. The Telegraph
  4. Leadership is about encouraging everyone to have a voice. One of the most challenging tasks any leader faces is being an agent for change and leading people through tough times. But it can also be one of the most rewarding. Tough times show us our true selves and what we’re made of. [MORE]

  7. IMF warns of 'dire consequences' of no-deal Brexit. A no-deal Brexit would cause "dire consequences" for the UK economy, says Christine Lagarde, the IMF’s managing director. She warned of "reduced growth, an increase in the [budget] deficit and a depreciation of the currency," adding: "In relatively short order it would mean a reduction in the size of the economy." She insisted that "all the likely Brexit scenarios will have costs for the UK economy". The Guardian
