TARRYTOWN, N.Y. — The flavor of the year at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show: Wasabi. A Pekingese named Wasabi won best in show Sunday night, notching a fifth-ever win for the unmistakable toy breed. The Pekingese dog "Wasabi" wins Best in Show at the 145th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show June 13, 2021, at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, N.Y. Timothy A. Clary / AFP - Getty ImagesThe 3-year-old Pekingese, meanwhile, was “pretty nonchalant about the whole thing,” his handler said. She guided Jade’s father, CJ, to a 2016 Westminster best in show win — and lost him last September, when the 7-year-old died unexpectedly of a fungal infection. David Fitzpatrick holds his Pekingese "Wasabi" after winning the Best in Show at the 145th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, N.Y., on June 13, 2021.

REUTERS/Mike SegarLONDON (Reuters) - Israel’s parliament approving a new government marks the end of a protracted political deadlock and will allow for the passage of a new budget - a positive for the country’s credit rating, ratings agency Moody’s said on Monday. On Sunday, parliament approved by a razor-thin majority of 60-59 a new administration led by Naftali Bennett, bringing Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12 years in office to an end. “Although this is likely to result in a fragile and potentially short-lived government, we expect the lack of ideological cohesion to increase incentives to focus primarily on economic policies rather than more divisive issues,” Moody’s analysts said in a research note. “The passage of a new budget will be key to gaining greater visibility on the medium-term fiscal policy outlook after the weakening we have observed in Israel’s fiscal policy effectiveness in recent years, in part because of the polarised political environment.”Moody’s rates Israel at A1 with a stable outlook.
