1.No gold-plated yacht

The Sept. 29 Guardian correction:

“• An opinion article referenced, as if true, a myth: there was no yacht called History Supreme, costing billions of dollars and wrapped in gold (For the sake of life on Earth, we must put a limit on wealth, 19 September, page 1, Journal).”

2. Where Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s staff can park.

A Sept. 29 Sun correction:

“An article headlined “NOT IN MEG BACK YARD” (12 April) reported that the Duke & Duchess of Sussex had banned staff from using a car park near Frogmore Cottage.

“We now accept that the parking changes were not requested by the Duke & Duchess. We are happy to correct the record and apologise for any distress caused.”

3. Median? A Sept. 29 New York Times correction:

“The Calculator article on Sept. 15 referred incorrectly to the impact that the record-breaking $240 million apartment purchased by Kenneth Griffin at 220 Central Park South had on the building’s median purchased price. A median is not affected by a numerical outlier, an average is.”

4. You’re supposed to limit yourself to 2,400 milligrams of sodium a day. So the New York Times made a whopper of a mistake when it reported that the Beyond Famous Star burder has 1550 GRAMS of sodium. The article reported on the new plant-based burgers including Burger King’s Impossible Whopper.

The Sept. 23 correction:

“An earlier version of this article misstated the amount of sodium in a Beyond Famous Star burger. It is 1,550 milligrams, not 1,550 grams.”
