How do you move on from a high-profile job?
The BP chief who famously told reporters he wanted his life back after the company's Deepwater Horizon catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico is stepping down as chairman of the oil and gas company Genel Energy. The Kurdistan venture was seen as a second coming for Mr Hayward. But it hasn't fulfilled its promise on his watch and Genel's shares closed almost 5% higher on his replacement.

Browns of Brockley becomes cash-free cafe
A café in south London has become the latest business to go card-only as more turn their back on the “faff” of taking coins and notes. Ross Brown, who owns Browns of Brockley in south east London, stopped taking cash earlier this year, inspired by a trip to Sweden where he “hardly used cash at all and not even noticed.”

When will electric vehicles become mainstream?
There's a warning the UK's electrical infrastructure is not equipped for the rise in Electric Vehicle or EV use over the next decade. A report from the Green Alliance suggests peak demand for electricity could double before 2050, leading to so called brown outs or black outs if local grids are not actively managed.

UK businesses have almost £500bn tied up in excess working capital
British businesses have at least £498bn tied up in excess working capital, which could be used to boost cashflow and growth. A combination of revenue growth, which increases the amount of money tied up in unpaid invoices, and firms strategically building up their inventories ahead of anticipated price hikes, have increased pressure on businesses to have more working capital.

What do firms want to see from the election?
A general election period brings uncertainty but can also be good for businesses. While there are naturally concerns that things can slow down in the run up to a vote, it is also a chance for entrepreneurs and business leaders to have their voices heard.

How far away is controlling computers with our brains?
Facebook says it is working on technology to allow us to control computers directly with our brains. It is developing “silent speech” software to allow people to type at a rate of 100 words per minute, it says. The project, in its early stages, will require new technology to detect brainwaves without needing invasive surgery.
