Zola review a stylish viral tweet-based sex and crime caper

From https:

Fantastic performances, including a breakout Taylour Paige, and confident direction from Janicza Bravo lift an often bumpy ride

The story of Zola seduced the attention of the internet back in 2015 not only because of its high quotient of narrative left turns and lurid details, but because it showed the hitherto unseen power of Twitter as a tool for compelling longform storytelling. In the space of about 148 tweets, Detroit waitress Aziah aZolaa Wells spun a staggering tale of a trip to Florida that went horribly wrong with conviction and wit sparking the interest of Hollywood with an impassioned battle for rights. Initially James Franco won out but the production was shelved after accusations of sexual misconduct and the following year, indie director Janicza Bravo came onboard, a development that seems all the more like kismet given both the subject matter and the importance of a woman of colour being given the reins.

Seamus Mallon obituary | Anne McHardy

From https:
Deputy first minister of Northern Irelandas power-sharing executive and a founder of the Social Democratic and Labour party

Seamus Mallon, who has died aged 83, was deputy leader of the Social Democratic and Labour party (SDLP) in Northern Ireland from 1979 to 2001, and later deputy first minister of Northern Ireland (1998-2001) in the power-sharing executive under David Trimble. He had a burning sense of duty which drove him into political life but equally a sense of loss of what life might have been without Northern Irelandas Troubles.

With his puritanical intellectual honesty, albeit tempered by a fine sense of humour, he could be difficult to work with, something experienced both by John Hume as leader of the SDLP and Trimble as leader of the Ulster Unionist party (UUP). Hume made SDLP leadership more difficult by often excluding Mallon from decision making.

Behind the mask is a boy. Just before Christmas 2016, Paulo Dybala missed Juventusas last penalty in the Italian Super Cup final against Milan. It was still on his mind days later when, watching Gladiator, he had an idea.

The Bullring did not disappoint, despite the loss of the morning session to rain and an early exit for bad light. The ball whizzed through at pace; most batsmen felt the urge to respond aggressively. It paid to keep a close eye on proceedings. This venue may not be beautiful but it is a modern Colosseum of cricket, which requires bravery as well as skill among the combatants.

After 54.2 overs of play England, having chosen to bat, despite all that early-morning moisture, were 192 for four. They may be satisfied by that, even though the openers posted a century partnership, but they must also be aware that the game can change rapidly here; the nicks carry, the adrenaline flows and the pendulum swings.

Bezos learns the harsh lesson of texting a crown prince fond of crucifixions | Marina Hyde

From https:
Perhaps the Amazon boss, who was supposedly hacked by Mohammed bin Salman, will be more careful in future

Though my tears have yet to liquefy at news that Amazonas boss, Jeff Bezos, was phone-hacked, thereas a certain dramatic irony to the idea of an accidental circular firing squad among the tech gods. In Norse mythology, a lot of the deities end up doing for each other, so there is vague precedent to Appleas iPhone or whatever being Bezosas achilles heel. Itas like an Elon Musk rocket containing the Google boss exploding on the launch pad, or Mark Zuckerberg getting brained by an Amazon drone.

Of course, what elevates the story of how Bezosas underpanted selfies may have made their way into the public domain is the identity of the hacker, which the Guardian this week suggested was probably none other than Saudi bear and human lumberjacker Mohammed bin Salman. From here on in, we will refer to the crown prince by his desired nickname aMBSa, which he has no idea sounds like a discount carpet warehouse on the ringroad, or the name slapped on the off-brand trainers your mum picked up at the supermarket, which she insists are exactly the same as the Nikes except for a couple of tiny bits that no oneas going to notice.

The Guardian view on moving the Lords: northern power house | Editorial
Date: Fri, 24 Jan 2020 18:30:31 GMT
From https:

Relocating the upper chamber to York could be good for Britain a but only if its composition and role are radically rethought

A news organisation that began life as the Manchester Guardian and whose roots lie firmly in Lancashire can hardly be expected to give an unqualified welcome to the governmentas reported plan to move the House of Lords to the city of York. The possibility of such a move is nevertheless a tantalising one for the whole of northern England. If it proves to be more than a passing gimmick, and if it is part of a pluralistic and interlocking attempt to modernise and devolve British government more generally, including to the north, it could also be an extremely desirable one.

These are hugely important caveats. At the moment, no one knows what exactly is planned. But Boris Johnson likes big gestures. He finds it easy to commit public money to projects that prove useless. Passengers on Londonas New Routemaster buses a one of Mr Johnsonas pet schemes as mayor a will be familiar with that. Billed as a return to the days when one could hop on and off, the rear doors of the buses are now kept shut because, with no bus conductors to sell tickets, too many passengers were dodging fares. It may have seemed a smart idea at the time. But it was a waste of money.

The ICJ ruling on Myanmar is a rare bright point in a woeful international response. Unfortunately its powers are limited

On Thursday the internet in Kutupalong, a city-sized refugee camp in south-eastern Bangladesh, was switched back on for a few hours. The campas residents gathered around their phones as, 5,000 miles away in The Hague, the international court of justice (ICJ) delivered a ruling on Myanmaras treatment of its Rohingya Muslim minority. They cheered as the court issued a set of legally binding obligations: that Myanmaras military does not commit acts of genocide against some 600,000 Rohingya who still live in the country, and that evidence of past crimes remains intact.

The singer emerges as charming and undeniably talented in this Netflix documentary but itas too slick for genuine insight

Itas safe to say that by the end of Miss Americana, a quickie documentary on the recent trials and tribulations of Taylor Swift opening this yearas Sundance film festival, few positions will have truly shifted. Those who already idolised the award-winning musician will continue to do so, as will the non-fans who might still begrudgingly admire her undeniable talent. And those who have questioned her knack for playing the victim as well as her lack of self-awareness will also find their minds similarly unchanged. Here is a character study authored by the character whoas being studied, a carefully controlled continuation of a story we have been following now for years. Itas brand management dressed up as insight and while itas not not entertaining, itas certainly far from particularly revealing, playing more like a PR exercise than a festival-worthy feature.

Do you seek salvation and guidance? Are you hankering for a grownup who can sort everything out? Is leaving Earth and living in space increasingly tempting? Then 2020 might just be the right time for one of science fictionas most venerable heroes to make a comeback.

Star Trek: Picard (Amazon Prime) is a sequel to Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran from 1987 to 1994 and has less cultural currency than the inaugural 60s series, but is, for fans, an upgrade on the Shatner/Nimoy years. Some of its kudos was earned by its deeper exploration of humanity and sophisticated ideas about post- and late-capitalist societies. But a lot of it was the appeal of Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, the starship Enterpriseas captain a a capable negotiator, problem-solver and, when needed, sneaky badass. Sci-fi likes to fantasise about strong, reasonable leaders; Picard is possibly the ultimate. That his showas reboot has allowed him to go titular is a measure of the imaginary man.

Horn player who recorded prolifically and was considered the finest of his generation

Widely acclaimed as the finest horn player of his generation, Barry Tuckwell, who has died aged 88, brought to an often recalcitrant instrument a technical security and silken tone that set new standards. With his trademark moustache and goatee, he cut a genial, distinctive figure on the stage, mesmerising audiences with the style and quality of his playing.

A native of Australia, he left the southern hemisphere in 1950, taking various positions in Britain before joining the London Symphony Orchestra as principal horn in 1955, remaining with them until 1968, and acting for a number of years also as its director and then chairman. It was a time of some turmoil at the LSO: several principals had recently left in pursuit of more lucrative commercial work and Tuckwell was one of a cadre of talented musicians a the violinists Hugh Maguire and Neville Marriner, clarinettist Gervase de Peyer, bassoonist William Waterhouse and trombonist Denis Wick among them a whose recruitment brought new levels of excellence, restoring the orchestraas reputation in the process.

She thought even a symbolic victory would be an important victory, because it was important for her daughter to have a woman president to look up to. aI want her to see a woman president,a she said, ato help her believe that she could become a president herself.a

Global unrest has one, massive root cause: inequality | Michael Massing

The 2008 crash stripped the sheen off global capitalism. Weare still living with the effects

The popular protests that erupted in 2019 and have continued to rumble a from France and Spain in Europe to Hong Kong and India in Asia; from Chile, Colombia and Bolivia in Latin America to Lebanon, Iran and Iraq in the Middle East a have perplexed analysts. Because they have been so far-flung and have lacked an iconic moment like the fall of the Berlin Wall, the common thread hasnat been obvious. But there is one: rage at being left behind. In each instance, the match may differ, but the kindling has (in most cases) been furnished by the gross inequality produced by global capitalism.

Consider Lebanon. The demonstrations that erupted there in October were triggered by the governmentas plan to tax calls made through WhatsApp and other internet services, but they quickly mushroomed into a broader protest against high unemployment, sectarian rule, corruption, and the governmentas failure to provide basic services like electricity and sanitation.

Rebecca Long-Bailey wants to reclaim the term to describe collective uplift rather than sharp-elbowed social climbing

There were a few raised eyebrows last week when Rebecca Long-Bailey, at her slick launch event in Manchester, unveiled the cornerstone of her Labour leadership pitch: aaspirationala socialism. Itas fair to say that previous attempts to articulate the two together have failed to convince. Andy Burnham made his own version of aaspirational socialisma the central pillar of his largely forgotten leadership bid in 2010, though the focus of his proposals was more on individual social mobility than any discernible commitment to socialist transformation.

Fantastic performances, including a breakout Taylour Paige, and confident direction from Janicza Bravo lift an often bumpy ride

The story of Zola seduced the attention of the internet back in 2015 not only because of its high quotient of narrative left turns and lurid details, but because it showed the hitherto unseen power of Twitter as a tool for compelling longform storytelling. In the space of about 148 tweets, Detroit waitress Aziah aZolaa Wells spun a staggering tale of a trip to Florida that went horribly wrong with conviction and wit sparking the interest of Hollywood with an impassioned battle for rights. Initially James Franco won out but the production was shelved after accusations of sexual misconduct and the following year, indie director Janicza Bravo came onboard, a development that seems all the more like kismet given both the subject matter and the importance of a woman of colour being given the reins.

Itas safe to say that by the end of Miss Americana, a quickie documentary on the recent trials and tribulations of Taylor Swift opening this yearas Sundance film festival, few positions will have truly shifted. Those who already idolised the award-winning musician will continue to do so, as will the non-fans who might still begrudgingly admire her undeniable talent. And those who have questioned her knack for playing the victim as well as her lack of self-awareness will also find their minds similarly unchanged. Here is a character study authored by the character whoas being studied, a carefully controlled continuation of a story we have been following now for years. Itas brand management dressed up as insight and while itas not not entertaining, itas certainly far from particularly revealing, playing more like a PR exercise than a festival-worthy feature.
