UK Abandons Defense Procurement Privatization, US Farmers Hoarding Corn, Chicago Blue Line Overhaul

The U.K. government has abandoned its plans to privatize defense procurement after only one contract bidder remained.

With corn prices at a three-year low, many U.S. farmers are hoarding freshly harvested supplies in anticipation of a rebound.

Chicago lawmakers have allotted $492 million to overhauling the CTA Blue Line. The four-year project may cut travel time from downtown to the airport by 10 minutes.

Yoga apparel retailer Lululemon’s chairman, Chip Wilson (of “some women’s bodies just don’t actually work” fame), will resign next year, and Laurent Potdevin will take over the role of CEO from Christine Day.
