Life review a hopes and heartaches behind closed doors

From https:

Mike Bartlettas latest drama, set in the same world as his smash-hit Doctor Foster, is a smart exploration of the human condition a with just the right amount of sentimentality

Life is the title a inspired by David Attenborough a of this BBC One drama series by Mike Bartlett, the award-winning playwright turned award-winning TV writer. He has used epic single-world titles before a Trauma, Press a but it is still a bold declaration. Does this six-part series truly contain all the vicissitudes and diversity of human existence? After watching three episodes, that question is still unanswered, but what is clear is that this is an entertaining week-night drama that does not revolve around a spate of brutal killings. That should be enough for most of us.

Lifeas claim to all-encompassing representation is partly justified by its setting: a big Victorian house in Manchester that has been divided into four flats. This is not a drama about twentysomethings in a house-share, as in the seminal 90s show This Life. Nor is it a sprawling, single-family dwelling, as in the more recent Years and Years (although, judging by the aerial and exterior shots that open each episode, it could easily have been filmed in the same area of Stockport). Rather, the ways in which the four main residents are isolated, despite their proximity, and eventually find ways to connect across dividing walls are what provide the storyas foundations.

Despite Covid-19 restrictions the label showed the runway is still sacred to the city

The audience may have been slashed to one-fifth of the size of last season, but Christian Dior built a cathedral for their fashion show, nonetheless. 18 light-box installations, each seven metres tall, brought the intense kaleidoscopic glory of Gothic stained-glass windows flooding into the vast blacked-out tent in the Tuileries garden erected for the event.

This was a show of grandeur in an industry embattled by seismic economic and social forces. Quarantine rules have pegged Paris fashion week back from being a global event to a domestic one, with few non-French attendees.

Only 350 were present at the Christian Dior show, instead of the usual 1750. Comme des GarASSons and other high-profile Japanese brands who have long been based in Paris have left the city in favour of shows in Tokyo next month. Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen are sitting out the season.

Many fossil fuel workers like me want to transition to renewables a but we need support | Matt Craigan

Covid has hit the industry hard, but the shift to renewables is inevitable. We need government-funded retraining

Oil and gas is one of the main industries in Aberdeen where I grew up, and it was inevitable that I would follow in my fatheras footsteps to work on the rigs out in the North Sea. Three weeks straight in the middle of the sea is tough, so much so that for many people their first stint is often their last. But the stability of the job when I started in the industry 13 years ago, as well as the decent pay and conditions, made up for the long periods away from family and friends.

This stability was to be short-lived. By 2016, a sustained period of oil price drops had hit the industry hard, and my employer of seven years took swift action, slashing jobs across the sector. That year there were 120,000 fewer jobs than at the peak in 2014. The wages and bonuses that had enticed us on to the rigs as direct employees were made less and less appealing. Like many of my colleagues I became self-employed, as the new working conditions pushed us to leave what we thought would be jobs for life. Itas no wonder that a majority of workers in my industry rated their job security as being so low.

The Guardian view on pandemic populism: leads to sloppy lawmaking | Editorial
Date: Tue, 29 Sep 2020 18:37:24 GMT
From https:

Boris Johnson regards the lack of parliamentary oversight as a virtue. But without Commons scrutiny of fast-changing Covid rules, we have been left with error and confusion

Boris Johnson is in No 10 with a majority of 80 in the Commons. This has meant he has run his government during the pandemic in a presidential style, bundling parliament to the sidelines in March. The emergency law which enabled his power grab has to be renewed after six months. Scores of Conservative MPs appeared not to be in the mood to give Mr Johnson such leeway again. They have been rightly infuriated by the lack of parliamentary oversight of fast-changing Covid rules which ultimately govern the way people live. By one count these have been changed 200 times since March. Even Mr Johnson appears confused about what people are allowed to do.

There is a respectable argument that the government needed to be able to move quickly when dealing with an unknown and deadly viral pathogen. With no vaccine, restrictions on freedom were inevitable. We now have a much clearer idea of what tackling Covid means. Yet the government is exercising vast powers, without parliamentary scrutiny in advance, and undermining the law by having a shifting set of rules that few can keep up with. Commons debates have been permitted a absurdly a after the restrictions were announced or came into force.

Many nations lack access to affordable testing. Now 120m antigen tests will help tackle this dangerous inequality

The principles of managing infectious disease outbreaks, whether of measles, tuberculosis or Covid-19, are similar. You identify who has been infected by testing for the disease, discover where they acquired the infection and who may have also been infected through contact tracing, and stop the spread by asking those affected to isolate. People who become infected are treated with therapies that modify the course of the disease.

It sounds simple, doesnat it? Now think how you might implement this strategy on a global scale, for a disease no one knew existed 12 months ago. This is where organisations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), which provides leadership, expertise and coordination, come in. Since early 2020, the WHO has been working with different groups to support the development of testing, tracing and isolation programmes for coronavirus. Rightly, it has advocated that everyone should have access to these things, no matter where in the world they live.

There can be no disguising the scale of British failure at this bizarre French Open. When Heather Watson joined her five compatriots as Parisian tourists before the start of the second round, her mood matched the grimness of the weeping skies and the wreckage of history that has gone before. The forecast is not great.

Watson, who battled ongoing dizzy spells earlier in the year to move from outside the top 100 to 56 in the world, had beaten Fiona Ferro twice without dropping a set before they met again on Court No 14 on Tuesday but the experienced clay-courter, ranked third among the 11 French players at Roland Garros, rose to the moment and tamed Watson to win 7-6 (4), 6-4.

But, despite Trumpas botched response to the Covid-19 pandemic a a failure that has left the economy far weaker than it otherwise would have been a he has maintained a marginal edge on the question of which candidate would be better for the US economy.

Rival scientists divided over lockdowns may make a good story a but is it accurate?

The cardinal rule of coronavirus policy is that you must follow athe sciencea. Or, at the very least, you must say that you are. After the USas disastrous response to the pandemic, Donald Trump still insists he is aguided by sciencea. In the UK, Boris Johnson and his ministers always claimed that our own bumbling response was either aled by the sciencea or afollowing the sciencea, even as Britainas infection rate soared above other countries that were also, in their own words, following the science.

Sometimes it is easy for us to separate out false claims about science from real ones. Early in the crisis, the majority of mainstream scientists, and institutions such as the World Health Organization, supported swift lockdown measures. Trump resisted this approach, instead putting his faith in quack cures that his closest scientific advisers clearly opposed. Johnson has tended to drag his heels, taking the right scientific advice too late, as with lockdown, or making a mess of the execution, as with testing and tracing. Their departures from the sanctified path of science are obvious.

Why has activist Nathan Law been forced to flee Hong Kong? a podcast
Date: Tue, 29 Sep 2020 02:00:05 GMT
From https:

Nathan Law is one of Hong Kongas most prominent democracy activists, but his years of campaigning have made him a target for the Chinese government. He discusses the toll it has taken and why he has now had to flee to London. Guardian correspondent Emma Graham-Harrison looks at what the future holds for Hong Kong

In July, Nathan Law, one of Hong Kongas most prominent young democracy activists, announced he had relocated to Britain, five days after confirming he had fled his home because of Beijingas new security law. Law was a founding member of Demosisto, a pro-democracy party that disbanded the same day Beijing imposed its new security law on the semi-autonomous region. Law and other prominent party members such as former the student leader Joshua Wong were vilified by Beijing, often described as ablack handsa and separatists who conspired with foreigners to undermine China.

Nathan talks to Rachel Humphreys about why he decided to dedicate his life to activism and the impact that it has had on him and his family. He talks about his decision to come to Britain and how he will continue to campaign from the UK. Emma Graham-Harrison, senior international affairs correspondent for the Guardian and Observer, discusses how Chinaas introduction of the national security law effectively ends Hong Kongas semi-autonomy.

The Glorias review a Gloria Steinem biopic is a laughably shoddy mess
Date: Tue, 29 Sep 2020 05:23:09 GMT
From https:

Julie Taymoras film on the multiple life stages of the defining feminist turns what should be a fascinating character study into an embarrassing disaster

It takes less than a minute into The Glorias, the director Julie Taymoras shallow biopic of the feminist icon Gloria Steinem, to realize something is off. Four iterations of Steinem at different ages a child (Ryan Kiera Armstrong), teen (Lulu Wilson), young woman (Alicia Vikander), and middle-aged (Julianne Moore) a sit on an old Greyhound bus going a| somewhere, each shaded a strange and uncomfortably wan gray against the colorful scenery out the window. Why edit half the scene in color, half in black and white, like the early iPhoto effects of the mid-2000s? There doesnat seem to be a reason other than to gesture at depth a one of many baffling artistic choices that turn a nearly two-and-a-half-hour film on what should be a fascinating, mettlesome, complicated character study into an uneven, trite and at times laughably shoddy mess.

Bruce Nauman: 'Jasper Johns poured me a few bourbons a and my legs gave way'

From https:

He is a titan of the artworld whose work can be savage, prescient or slapstick. Ahead of a major show, the US artist looks back on studio stunts and liquid lunches with legends

Bruce Nauman is telling me a story from his childhood. aI had a friend in high school who was a little bit of a loner,a says the artist, speaking by phone from New York. aIf someone hit him with a snowball when we were walking to school, he wouldnat just throw a snowball back, head attack. Head get aem down on the ground and pound on him.a

It is a story that seems to chime with Naumanas art, where the line between peaceable interaction and sudden violence often seems terrifyingly thin. The artist, about to be the subject of a retrospective at Londonas Tate Modern, is interested in the moment a social ritual or game pivots into cruelty. In the 1986 video work Violent Incident, a smartly dressed couple are at a table set for cocktails and dinner a but the date soon descends into a vicious brawl. You can feel pushed away by his work, alienated. aGet out of my mind, get out of this room,a urges one sculpture, via a disembodied voice that echoes round an empty space lit by a single bulb. Itas as if youave been sucked into the artistas head a and itas not a happy place to be.

Dirt by Bill Buford review a unstinting and endlessly curious
Date: Tue, 29 Sep 2020 06:00:11 GMT
From https:

Buford returns to his love affair with cooking in this engaging, if garrulous, account of working in a top Lyon restaurant

It has taken Bill Buford a long time to give us Dirt. His last book, Heat, which detailed his macho adventures in the Italian kitchen, came out in 2006. But then, as he admits, timing is hardly his thing. If (eventually) he can learn how to rustle up moules A la poulette, a tricky dish involving a sauce made from the jus of sautA(c)ed mussels and an egg yolk that a split second either way may ruin, this has no effect whatsoever on other clock-related activities. In Lyon, where he bags himself a gig at La MA"re Brazier, one of the cityas most celebrated restaurants, he is always tardy: late for work, late to change into his kitchen clothes, and, sin of sins, late when itas his turn to make the all-important staff lunch.

Among Us is the ultimate party game of the Covid era
Date: Tue, 29 Sep 2020 07:00:11 GMT
From https:

Launched into obscurity in 2018 but now hugely popular, this online version of wink murder, with its focus on fabrication and blame-shifting, is scarily on point

There are 10 crew members trapped on a spacecraft, carrying out menial tasks to maintain vital systems, but at least one of them is an imposter who wants to sabotage their work and if possible, murder them. What sounds like the premise of a particularly bleak science-fiction movie is in fact the set-up of one of the most popular video games of the year. Developed by a three-person team at InnerSloth and launched to virtual obscurity in 2018, Among Us has suddenly become one of the biggest games on PC and mobile, attracting more than 85m players in the last six months. Itas so successful, InnerSloth recently abandoned plans to work on a sequel, instead piling their resources into the original. No one, it seems, is more surprised about the success of this game than its creators.

So why has this happened? Among Us is essentially an online multiplayer version of the party game wink murder, but set on a constantly malfunctioning spaceship. Up to 10 players take part, and at the beginning, youare told whether youare an innocent crew member or an imposter. While the former carry out jobs such as rebooting the communications systems or cleaning out the air ducts, the latter stalk the corridors breaking vital equipment or looking for victims to kill.
