In the vernacular of sports, "breakout" is a nebulous term. It means different things to different people. Here's what it means to me: a not-yet-star player who elevates his game and statistics significantly. He can be a youngster who's only sipped his cup of coffee or have a few seasons under his belt. He can trail some hype or toil in relative obscurity. In fact, you'll find guys who match all of those descriptions here. There are top prospects with rookie status intact about to get their first extended shot, established players coming back from injuries, and a few names who have taxied down the runway of stardom and appear poised for liftoff. I've tapped three breakout candidates at each position, including starting and relief pitchers. Inevitably, some will soar and some will fizzle but they'll all be worth watching closely in 2017.

But a critic of Apple in Brussels said its resort to a "fundamental rights" defence was "hilarious". RBS shares soar as privatisation hopes rise Shares in Royal Bank of Scotland soared yesterday to their highest level since the EU referendum as hopes rose that the bank may be moving towards privatisation and paying dividends. It was announced last week that the sale of Williams Glyn - a move that Philip Hammond, the chancellor, has said is key to the government selling any of its 72% shareholding - may be dropped. End of an era as Vodafone sells pager business Vodafone has announced that it is selling its pager business to Capita, the outsourcing group. In the early 1990s, pagers were regarded as a status symbol, coveted by City traders and upwardly mobile. They have since become an anachronism, though they are still used by medical staff, coastguards, lifeboatmen, train drivers and birdwatchers.

Here's the current federal spending pie: 55% is entitlements and interest. Both of those are set to soar as the populace ages and interest rates rise. Massive, ever-expanding deficits will push federal debt much higher, pushing interest rates up. Everybody wants to raise taxes on the rich, but a funny thing happens when tax revenues soar above a thresholdthe economy spirals into recession, and employment, profits and tax revenues all plummet, forcing even higher deficits. Entitlement program deficits are exploding higher, and all the conventional policy fixes are like building sand castles to stop a tsunami. The problem is global: as we consume the cheap energy, what's left to extract and refine is more expensive, so energy costs rise. As the population ages, entitlements soar. As the growth fixes everything model fails under the burden of skyrocketing debts, the harsh reality becomes unavoidable: We haven't grown at all.

(CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.) SpaceX will have to wait at least another day to launch from NASA s historic moon pad. Last-minute rocket trouble forced SpaceX to halt Saturday's countdown at Florida's Kennedy Space Center. The unmanned Falcon rocket remains at Launch Complex 39A, waiting to soar on a space station delivery mission. It's the same pad where Americans flew to the moon almost a half-century ago, and where the shuttle program ended in 2011. This will be SpaceX's first Florida launch since a rocket explosion last summer. The next launch attempt could come as early as Sunday morning.
