(Reuters) - U.S. insurers are taking a closer look at the recruiting and succession practices of corporate customers, worried about mounting lawsuits over a lack of diversity among top executives and directors, industry sources said. REUTERS/Win McNamee/File PhotoInsurers are meeting company officials to examine diversity practices before renewing or signing new so-called D&O policies to cover lawsuits against directors and officers, insurers and brokers said. Before pricing coverage, insurers want details about top-level succession planning and how companies recruit, they said. Since then, at least seven lawsuits have been filed against major U.S. companies alleging deficiencies in diversity practices. AmTrust Financial Services Inc has also been meeting with corporate clients to better understand diversity practices and improvement plans, said Jim Seymour, whose division writes D&O coverage.

Space is a dangerous and unfriendly place not suited for human life, yet astronauts are sent up to the International Space Station every year. Narrator: In 2016, astronaut Scott Kelly returned to Earth after nearly a year on the International Space Station. Narrator: If you're planning a trip to the International Space Station, be prepared to feel weightless. So, they scheduled two hours a day pretty much every day while I was on the space station for working out. Well, a trip to Mars would expose astronauts to even more dangers than those on the International Space Station.

Warner Bros said in a statement that Depp “will depart the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise,” and that his role would be recast. Warner Bros said on Friday its release date had been pushed back to summer 2022 from November 2021. The newspaper also questioned his casting in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise. Rowling had come under fire in 2017 for casting Depp in the first “Fantastic Beasts” movie after initial details of his 2016 divorce from Heard were made public. “Fantastic Beasts,” based on the magical adventures of Newt Scamander, is set some 60 years before the “Harry Potter” films but features several of the same key characters when they were younger.

Johnny Depp loses libel case against Britain's Sun newspaper

London (CNN Business) Johnny Depp has lost his highly publicized libel case against the publisher of Britain's The Sun newspaper, whose claim that he was an abusive husband sparked a courtroom showdown between the Hollywood star and his ex-wife Amber Heard earlier this year. Depp sued News Group Newspapers and Dan Wootton — The Sun's executive editor — over an article that claimed the "Pirates Of The Caribbean" star was violent toward Heard while they were together. But the UK's High Court ruled in the publisher's favor on Monday. Citing evidence, including photos, audio recordings and Depp's own text messages, lawyers for the newspaper group argued in court filings that Depp "beat his wife Amber Heard, causing her to suffer significant injury, and on occasion leading to her fearing for her life." Judge Andrew Nicol said in his judgment Monday that the paper's claims had been shown to be "substantially true."

Actor Johnny Depp loses 'wife beater' libel case in London

LONDON — Hollywood actor Johnny Depp lost a libel case on Monday against British tabloid newspaper The Sun which published an article that called him a "wife beater." Depp had sued the paper over the story in 2018, in which it was claimed that he had been violent toward his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard. The article questioned Depp's casting in the second instalment of the "Fantastic Beasts" movie series, with the headline: "Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be 'genuinely happy' casting wife beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?'" The libel battle attracted widespread publicity for its lurid portrait of the private lives of Depp and his then-wife Heard, and their tempestuous relationship before the couple divorced in 2017. Nicol ruled on Monday that the paper's allegations were "substantially true," saying in a ruling published online that "I accept that the defendants have shown that the words they published were substantially true in the meanings I have held them to bear."

The 45-year-old designer and founder of Nigerian fashion label Tiffany Amber now starts each day with a 10-minute safety talk for her production team, "who at first did not seem to understand the gravity and the potential of being infected by the (Covid-19) virus." Coker founded Tiffany Amber in 1998, and it's now considered one of Nigeria's most influential fashion and lifestyle brands. Less than a month after the pandemic reached Africa, Tiffany Amber's entire factory refocused to produce personal protective equipment (PPE), something Coker notes took immense pressure to turn around. The colorful garments of the Tiffany Amber fashion line, seen here during Arise Fashion week in 2019, have since been replaced in production by PPE to help during the pandemic. All of this happened, she says, right before borders closed in Nigeria and prices spiked due to the unforeseen demand for materials.
