This Bentley is now the world's fastest SUV, beating out a Lamborghini

In the battle to make the world’s fastest sport utility vehicle, score another win for Bentley.

The British automaker says its new all-wheel-drive Bentayga Speed SUV can reach a top speed of 190 miles per hour, which just barely edges out the Lamborghini Urus, at 189.5 MPH, to claim the title of “the world’s fastest production SUV,” Bentley said in a press release on Thursday.

Each of the luxury SUVs has a starting price of around $200,000.

Technically, Bentley is actually reclaiming its crown as the manufacturer of the fastest SUV on the market. The Lamborghini Urus, first released by the Italian automaker in 2018, took the title from an earlier iteration of the Bentayga SUV that tops out at 187 MPH, according to Jalopnik. (The world’s fastest non-SUV cars in production can top speeds of 250 MPH)

But, Bentley added some additional power to the new and aptly-named Bentayga Speed, which the company touts as having 626 brake horsepower (versus 600 for the regular Bentayga). Both Bentayga SUVs sport a 6.0-litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine.

Gaming stocks are getting killed after earnings

Video game stocks are getting killed Wednesday after two of the top companies in the space reported quarterly earnings.

Shares of EA tanked 12 percent Wednesday, a day after the company cited “intense competition” in the space as contributing to a revenue miss for its fiscal third quarter of 2019.

Take-Two Interactive, which reported quarterly earnings Wednesday morning, fell 10 percent in early trading.

The company reported GAAP net revenue of $1.249 billion and GAAP net income per diluted share of $1.57.

The reports appeared to drag Activision Blizzard lower as well. The company doesn’t report its quarterly earnings until next week, but the stock fell roughly 9 percent Wednesday.

EA’s Chief Executive Andrew Wilson said heightened competition in the gaming space dented the company’s sales during the quarter. Gaming companies are seeing a particular threat from free-to-play games like the wildly popular “Fortnite.”

“Our [Battlefield V] launch didn’t resonate as strongly as we would have liked it to with players, and we were never truly able to catch up,” Wilson said on the company’s earnings call Tuesday. “And as our competitors continued to build momentum, whether that was ‘Fortnite’ or ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ or ‘Call of Duty,’ we continued to stall from where we needed to be.”

Take-Two, for its part, said its title launches outperformed expectations. In October, the company launched “Red Dead Redemption 2,” which it says sold more units in the first eight days than the original title sold in its first eight years.

“We don’t see [a competitive environment] at all,” CEO Strauss Zelnick told CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” Wednesday. “We are not seeing any competitive headwinds at all as long as we deliver quality.”

Zelnick said the company admires “big hits” out of other companies, like “Fortnite,” but isn’t concerned about new free-to-play threats.

“In terms of a console title being made available free-to-play. Remember that ‘Fortnite’ came about in a roundabout way,” Zelnick said on the company’s earnings call. “I think that’s sort of a standalone experience. I think it’s hard to replicate and it would probably be ill-advised to try to replicate it. … I’m not worried at all about someone else establishing a free-to-play approach.”

Clarification: This story has been updated to remove an incorrect metric around Take-Two Interactive’s fiscal third quarter 2019 earnings report. Take-Two Interactive’s earnings per share figure is not comparable to estimates.

Conde Nast to launch Vogue Business for fashion industry execs

On Tuesday, Conde Nast International will launch Vogue Business, a fashion industry title that is aimed at professionals, after a turbulent couple of years for the publisher.

Vogue Business will start as a newsletter, rather than a website, aiming for a niche audience over having broad reach.

The new magazine will be run separately from the main Vogue title with its own editorial team and will cover the impact of technology on the industry, trends in manufacturing, marketing and hiring as well as broader issues such as climate change and geopolitics.

“In a consolidating media landscape, the launch of a new global title is a rare thing”, said Wolfgang Blau, President of Conde Nast International,” in an emailed to CNBC Monday. The company has been beta testing the newsletter with people in 29 countries, Conde Nast said.

The glossy magazine industry is no longer what it was, where sleek printed titles would be funded by advertisers keen to reach their aspirational audiences. Now, people read news and features and watch videos on the likes of Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook, which are more attractive to advertisers because of the data they have on users. Legacy publishers have had to catch up, and many are now putting their titles behind paywalls.

New England and 41-year-old quarterback Tom Brady will be going to their third consecutive Super Bowl after they beat the Kansas City Chiefs 37-31 in overtime on Sunday, with the Los Angeles Rams standing between the Patriots and a sixth NFL title.

The Rams secured their berth in the Super Bowl after a controversial 26-23 overtime win over the New Orleans Saints in the National Football Conference title game.

The teams will meet in the Super Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia on February 3.

American Football Conference champions New England beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime in the 2017 Super Bowl and lost 41-33 to the Philadelphia Eagles a year ago.

Their 11 Super Bowl appearances are the most ever.

The Rams have played in three previous Super Bowls, beating the Tennessee Titans 23-16 in Atlanta in 2000 when they were based in St Louis. They last appeared in the title game in 2002 when they lost to the Patriots 20-17.

World's oldest billionaire Yun Chung Chang goes to work every day

At 100 years old, the world’s oldest billionaire would be forgiven for taking it easy and enjoying the riches of his eight-decade career.

But for Chang Yun Chung, founder of Pacific International Lines (PIL), staying at home isn’t an option. Despite handing over the role of executive chairman to his son, Teo Siong Seng, earlier this year, the centenarian Singaporean insists on going into the office every day.

“It’s my habit,” Chang told CNBC in a recent episode of “Managing Asia.”

As chairman emeritus of PIL — a title honoring his contribution to the 51-year-old company — Chang said he visits the firm’s Singapore headquarters daily to run through its operations and check in with every department.

The US has a chance to have its first World Chess Champion since Bobby Fischer

The World Chess Championship begins in London on Friday between reigning champion Magnus Carlsen and U.S. challenger Fabiano Caruana. Carlsen told CNBC on the eve of the opening match. I enjoy the struggle of playing human players. Should 26-year-old Caruana win, he’ll be the first American since Bobby Fischer in the mid-1970’s to hold the title. Chess has 600 million fans worldwide and its promoters claim that makes it the most participated sport in the world.

The US has a chance to have its first World Chess Champion since Bobby Fischer

The World Chess Championship begins in London on Friday between reigning champion Magnus Carlsen and U.S. challenger Fabiano Caruana. They’ll contest twelve matches spread over a three-week period to decide the 2018 winner.

There’s over $1 million dollars in prize money on offer, with this match being billed as the toughest to call in years, given how evenly matched the two player’s rankings are.

“I want the games to be long and not so much decided by home preparation. It’s all about a battle of minds on the board, which is really what I find most exciting. I think this is what Fabiano also finds the most exciting, since he is not the kind of player who relies on home preparation.” Carlsen told CNBC on the eve of the opening match.

This head-to-head battle of human intelligence is the Norwegian’s preferred form of competition and, despite advances in A.I. technology, he wouldn’t want to see a computer entered into the Chess World Championship.

“Computers are better than humans now and that’s not going to change,” Carlsen said. “I enjoy playing the best, but only as long as it’s a human. I enjoy the struggle of playing human players. To me playing a computer is far less interesting and not something I would do in an official tournament or match.’

Carlsen has been the champion since 2010, winning the title three-times in that period, but said in the pre-match conference that his form would need to “step up” if he was to win.

Should 26-year-old Caruana win, he’ll be the first American since Bobby Fischer in the mid-1970’s to hold the title. Despite the history and the quality of his opponent, Caruana insisted he was looking forward to the challenge.

“His standards are very high, he’s still having good results, just maybe not as good as he’d hoped,” the Italian-American told CNBC at the launch of the event. “It’s like boxing, you have two guys who are slugging it out for a very long time and I think it’ll go down to the wire, which is another good reason to tune in.” he added.

Chess has 600 million fans worldwide and its promoters claim that makes it the most participated sport in the world.

The newly elected president of chess’s governing body FIDE, Arkady Dvorkovich, wants to increase prize-money for future tournaments and ensure the women’s game has equal stature. Currently, total prizes on offer for women is roughly a quarter of what the men make.

The 2016 world championship took place in New York and attracted a host of famous names to watch including Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg and Jay-Z. A further ten million people followed the match online and that number is predicted to increase this time around.

Tiger Woods ends five-year drought with Tour Championship triumph

Tiger Woods was moved to the brink of tears after capturing his first title since 2013 with a two-stroke triumph at the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Sunday that proved he was far from washed up at the age of 42. After five years of complications in his personal life and injury woes, Woods reasserted his status as the best front-runner in the history of the sport, leading throughout the final round and finishing at 11-under-par 269 at East Lake. “I was having a hard time not crying coming up t

Tiger Woods ends five-year drought with Tour Championship triumph

Tiger Woods was moved to the brink of tears after capturing his first title since 2013 with a two-stroke triumph at the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Sunday that proved he was far from washed up at the age of 42.

After five years of complications in his personal life and injury woes, Woods reasserted his status as the best front-runner in the history of the sport, leading throughout the final round and finishing at 11-under-par 269 at East Lake.

Amid raucous scenes with the massive gallery chanting his name as they stampeded the final fairway, he raised his arms in triumph after tapping in to move within two victories of Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82 PGA Tour titles.

“I was having a hard time not crying coming up the last hole,” Woods said after sharing a moment of celebration with caddie Joe LaCava.

“I’ve been sitting on 79 (wins) for five years now. To get 80 is a pretty damn good feeling.”

Woods, who carded a closing 71, walked off to a big kiss from girlfriend Erica Herman and a hug from agent Mark Steinberg as security tried to keep the fans at bay.

The victory capped off a season that started with questions over whether Woods, now 10 years removed from his 14th major title, would even be able to play a full schedule after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April 2017.

“My body was a wreck,” recalled Woods, who hoped the operation would alleviate debilitating back and leg pain.

“The low point was not knowing whether I would be able to live pain-free again.

“I was beyond playing. I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t lay down without feeling the pain in my back and leg.”

The 10 places vying to become the best restroom in the US

There’s an award for everything – even the title of America’s Best Restroom.

This year, ten public loos around the U.S. will compete for the title, featuring special features like disco balls, fresh flowers, classical music and elaborately decorated walls.

The annual competition draws attention to public restrooms that are super clean, visually appealing, innovative and uniquely designed. It also suggests that spending time, attention and money on restrooms can be its own reward.

“No matter the industry, public restrooms have a significant impact on customers’ overall perception of your business and their inclination to return,” said Sean Mulcahey, marketing manager at Cincinnati-based Cintas, the cleaning supply and services company that hosts the annual contest.

“The contest highlights the role clean restrooms play in elevating a good business into a great one,” he added.

Through September 18, the public is invited to vote on which of this year’s ten finalists will take the throne as 2018’s top restroom. The prize: $2,500 in restroom cleaning services, along with bathroom bragging rights.

Vienna tops Melbourne as world's most liveable city: Economist survey

Vienna has dislodged Melbourne for the first time at the top of the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index, strengthening the Austrian capital’s claim to being the world’s most pleasant city to live in.

The two metropolises have been neck and neck in the annual survey of 140 urban centers for years, with Melbourne clinching the title for the past seven editions. This year, a downgraded threat of militant attacks in western Europe as well as the city’s low crime rate helped nudge Vienna into first place.

Vienna regularly tops a larger ranking of cities by quality of life compiled by consulting firm Mercer. It is the first time it has topped the EIU survey, which began in its current form in 2004.

At the other end of the table, Damascus retained last place, followed by the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, and Lagos in Nigeria. The survey does not include several of the world’s most dangerous capitals, such as Baghdad and Kabul.

“While in the past couple of years cities in Europe were affected by the spreading perceived threat of terrorism in the region, which caused heightened security measures, the past year has seen a return to normalcy,” the EIU said in a statement about the report published on Tuesday.

“A long-running contender to the title, Vienna has succeeded in displacing Melbourne from the top spot due to increases in the Austrian capital’s stability category ratings,” it said, referring to one of the index’s five headline components.
