Mount Washington in New Hampshire is said to have some of the world’s worst weather, and as the Northeastern United States freezes in record-cold temperatures, the top of the 6,288-foot peak is earning that dubious distinction.
Adani Enterprises shelved a plan to raise as much as 10 billion rupees ($122 million) via its first-ever public sale of bonds following a market rout, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Chinese surveillance balloon has traveled over a swath of the Midwest, including St. Louis, and has been spotted over North Carolina. A second balloon from China has been identified floating over Latin America, the Pentagon said.
Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets guard who will be a free agent this summer, has asked the team to trade him before the NBA deadline on Thursday, the New York Times reports, citing a person familiar with the request who was not authorized to discuss it publicly.
