  • Singapore Inflation Rises Less Than Expected In July Singapore's consumer price inflation accelerated at a slower-than-expected pace in July, though marginally, figures from the Ministry of Trade and Industry showed Wednesday. The consumer price index rose 0.6 percent year-over-year in July, just above the 0.5 percent climb in June. Economists had expected the inflation to accelerate to 0.7 percent. The measure has been rising since December last year. In July, the slight rise in inflation was mainly due to higher retail and water prices. Private road transport inflation quickened to 3.5 percent in July from 3.0 percent in June. Services inflation increased slightly from 1.3 percent to 1.4 percent. At the same time, food inflation remained stable at 1.4 percent in July, as the rise in non-cooked food inflation was offset by lower price increases for prepared meals. MAS core inflation that excludes the costs of accommodation and private road transport, climbed to 1.6..

  • We already had a pretty good idea what the new BMW M5 was going to be. After all, BMW wasn't being all that coy about it; the Bavarian motor meisters have been quietly confirming one detail after another about the super sports sedan for months now, even going so far as to hand out press drives in prototypes some time back. (We'll assume our invitation was lost in the mail.)But that's not to say there's anything disappointing about seeing the all-new M5 revealed in all its glory, as BMW did on Monday. Because even if it's turned out to be exactly the 600-horsepower, all-wheel-drive German four-door we expected...it's still a 600-horsepower, all-wheel-drive German four-door.

The 2018 BMW M5's twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 cranks out an even 600 hors..
