Mrs America review a Cate Blanchett fights off feminism

From https:

This clever drama sees the actor portray Phyllis Schlafly a who led a 70s campaign against equal rights in the US a without turning her into a simple villain

Mrs America (BBC Two) will either kill or cure you. On the one hand, this miniseries about the fight between reactionary author and activist Phyllis Schlafly and the great and good of second-wave feminism will evoke a time when optimism infused the land and progress seemed unstoppable. On the other hand, it reminds us that Schlafly stopped such progress.

An oversimplification, obviously, but this basic duality runs through the nine-part drama and hits the fragile 2020 psyche harder, perhaps, than its makers ever planned. Mrs America a the first concentrated account of Schlaflyas story on screen, I think, and certainly in recent times a shows just how, and why, she managed to mobilise an army of fellow homemakers across the nation against the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA, which is still unpassed 50 years on), a piece of legislation that would have offered women protection from discrimination. That it manages to do so without making her either villainous or venal is testimony to the sophistication of the script (at least once it gets past its early, exposition-heavy stages) and the productionas intent. Like its spiritual predecessor Mad Men (one of whose writers, Dahvi Waller, created this series), its heart lies in showing how we got from there to here, rather than praising or damning individuals.

The Guardian view on Rishi Sunak: right words, right focus, wrong policies

From https:

The chancellor is handing out cocktail umbrellas as the UK heads into a hurricane

Almost alone among his cabinet colleagues, Rishi Sunak has a knack for saying the right thing at the right time. He did it again on Wednesday while unveiling his plan for jobs. aWe entered this crisis unencumbered by dogma,a the chancellor told fellow MPs. aAnd we continue in this spirit, driven always by the simple desire to do what is right.a Fine words uttered in a sympathetic tone. The trouble is, they are not matched by actions. The former investment banker, who can see that the UK is entering a historic economic and social crisis, is grappling with the ambitious politician who doesnat want to scare Conservative backbenchers. What emerges from this unhappy struggle is the strange alloy offered on Wednesday: sound analysis, sensible priorities but underwhelming, sometimes even wrongheaded policies.

Where Mr Sunak is correct is that this recession is unlike any the UK has faced in decades. In order to contain a lethal virus, almost all of the real-world private sector has had to freeze in its tracks. Spending on restaurants, travel and entertainment has fallen by as much as 80%. The public sector has had to spend unprecedented sums where businesses and households cannot, covering the wages for 9 million jobs, underwriting loans to firms, and funding apprenticeships. Costing APS160bn since March alone, this is hugely expensive but essential. The chancellor has sensibly ignored the backbenchers calling on him to lay out plans for spending cuts in the future. To do so now would be to damage business and consumer confidence.

For all the Rooseveltian rhetoric, whatas on offer is stamp duty aholidaysa and bonfires of planning rules

The Tory partyas damascene conversion to the merits of state intervention continues. In the past week, weave had Boris Johnson borrowing from Franklin D Rooseveltas playbook and Rishi Sunak announcing a mass job creation scheme. Of course, the scale of these plans falls far short of both the size of the challenge and the bombastic rhetoric. And while central government hands out goodies, local authorities are on the verge of bankruptcy. But to focus solely on this is to miss a deeper problem.

The political argument now is not simply how much the state should intervene, but in whose interests, and for what purpose. Itas all very well saying abuild, build, builda, but what are we building, and who will benefit? The government is desperately trying to resuscitate the old economy and prop up the power of the wealthy asset-owners and corporations who hoarded most of its gains. But the pandemic has shown we need fundamental change: these power relations must urgently be rebalanced. Just 6% of people want the economy to go aback to normala a but thatas exactly what weare getting.

I wonder what happened in my local church, behind locked doors, for all these months

Football, pubs and churches are all now available to us again. While I love all three, they also, respectively, cause me stress, temptation and guilt. I did not go to mass at the weekend because, as with pubs, I thought it might be a bit of a melee. I imagined feisty parishioners clamouring at the door being spoken to severely by sunglassed, earpieced bouncers. No, I left it until Tuesday to allow calm to prevail. My churchas website advised me places were limited to 48. Pre-booking online was advised but the IT for that was still in development, so I decided to take my chances for the 11.30 kick-off.

I get my fruit and veg from a stall opposite the church. I always chat to the Brentford fan who works there a an enormous, and enormously nice man.

Where once I would splash myself with holy water, I waved my hands in front of the machine, but gel came there none. Someone suggested I tried kneeling, but before I did so a splurge emerged.

From https:

The chancellor has been forced to spend for now, but he may revert to the low-tax small-state agenda the Tory faithful love

Rishi Sunak is now the most important person in the Conservative government, Boris Johnson included. This is quite an achievement for someone who has only been chancellor of the exchequer for five months. It reflects, in large part, the lack of competition from one of the least weighty cabinets of modern times. But it also reflects the severe damage that Johnson has done to himself during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sunak has emerged as hard-headed, clear-spoken and on top of his brief. Thus far, he has proved himself equal to events. The contrast with Johnson on all levels is increasingly stark. Unlike the prime minister, Sunak does not bluster, bully, thump the table or make things up. Talk of Sunak as the next party leader is common, though this also reflects the low level of most of the alternatives.

Burnley's Jay Rodriguez keeps West Ham stuck in stormy waters

While West Ham remain in control of their destiny, this was a reminder that survival in the short-term will bring no guarantee of a brighter future. Even if David Moyes succeeds in steering them towards calmer waters over the next four games, realists will know that this leaky ship will still be in danger of sinking next season.

For now the smart money is on West Ham staying up, given that they are four points above the relegation zone, with games against Norwich, Watford and Aston Villa to come. In the long run, however, there is little cause for optimism. Uncertainty gripped West Ham when they had an opportunity to pull clear, and Burnley punished their frailties, making light of their injury crisis by moving three points behind sixth-placed Wolves thanks to Jay Rodriguezas winner.

  • World No 1 angered by amaliciousa criticism of Adria Tour
  • aI still havenat decided whether I will play in the US Opena

Novak Djokovic says critics of his ill-fated Adria Tour have conducted a awitch hunta against him, much of it amaliciousa, and says he is likely to boycott the US Open next month.

As Rafael Nadal, the defending champion, is almost certain to miss New York as well, the tournament, due to begin on 31 August, is in danger of losing many of its leading contenders. Cancellation is out of the question, as it would cost the USTA an estimated $120m (APS94m) in TV revenue, but there is a growing sense that many players from outside the United States are considering pulling out because of the uncertainties surrounding quarantining, and worries about a resurgence of the virus.

The greatest: Roger Federer a balletic grace that makes the outrageous appear effortless
Date: Wed, 08 Jul 2020 07:00:04 GMT
From https:

In our series on the best players of the past 50 years, we look at the Swiss maestro who has a record 20 grand slam titles over a period of 15 years and is still in the shake-up aged 38

It is nearly two decades since Roger Federer first stepped on to Centre Court and began the greatest act of seduction tennis has seen. In July 2001 he was 19, talented but untested in the white heat of grand slam battle. On the other side of the net stood Pete Sampras, the greatest grass-court gunslinger of them all, with a demon serve and volleys as crisp as a fresh banknote.

The American had won seven of the previous eight Wimbledons and more grand slams than anyone else, yet such was the audacity of Federeras shot-making in his epic fourth-round victory that he quickly held the crowd a as well his racket a in the palm of his hand.

He reflects on his experiences as a BAME officer and discusses the use of stop and search, which has been cited as a continued source of tension between the force and communities. Ben Bowling, a professor of criminology and criminal justice, examines the history of police race relations

Rachel Humphreys talks to Commander Bas Javid, the brother of the former chancellor Sajid Javid, about how racism during his childhood and his own experiences of stop and search influenced his decision to join Avon and Somerset police in 1993. Last year, he moved to the Metropolitan police and has been in charge of frontline policing during lockdown. He discusses the challenges the force has faced, and answers criticism of its use of stop and search.

She also talks to Ben Bowling, a professor of criminology and criminal justice at Kingas College London. Ben looks at the Metas history of race relations and discusses the impact of the Macpherson report, which was published in the wake of the 1993 racially motivated murder of Stephen Lawrence.

Four chefs have 15 minutes to create dishes using only whatas in the depths of a celebrity guestas refrigerator. Whatas not to like?

South Korean TV producers donat shy away from voicing our deepest, inner desires. At least, this was what I told myself as I tried to figure out how to best explain the appeal of the variety cooking show that is Chef and My Fridge (Please, Take Care of My Refrigerator), with a selection of episodes from its four seasons currently streaming on Netflix.

With their one and a half hour long episodes, South Korean shows are a boon for lockdown hours. But Chef and My Fridge can also help prevent biological experiments in the depths of your kitchen from getting out of control, as well as gently suggesting you donat need to acquire any more plastic takeaway food containers.

Top 10 books about tumultuous times

From paranoid Roman emperors to Winston Churchillas war cabinet, here are some outstanding history books and novels exploring era-defining decisions made under pressure

Thereas nothing like a crisis of survival to show peopleas true natures. Though Iave written a good deal about tumultuous times, both fiction (English Passengers) and non-fiction (Rome: a History in Seven Sackings), I canat say Iam too interested in the tumult itself. Iam more interested in the decisions people make during such crises a how they ride the wave.

My new novel, Pilgrims, is set in the late 1280s, shortly after one episode of shameful English national wickedness a the annexation of the Principality of Gwynedd, north Wales a and just before another (no spoilers). The story follows a group of British pilgrims walking to Rome, each seeking their own different kind of redemption, and shows how they navigate the a to our eyes a bizarre values of their age.

If ever a documentary was in tune with the spirit of lockdown it is this very absorbing film about Biosphere 2 a a colossal eco-experimental project in the Arizona desert in the early 90s, which had its roots in 60s counterculture and which I knew nothing about before this.

Johnny Mandel obituary

From https:
Prolific songwriter best known for the theme tune from M*A*S*H and The Shadow of Your Smile

A brief survey of the career highlights of Johnny Mandel, who has died aged 94, might pick out his composition of the song Suicide Is Painless, the theme tune from both Robert Altmanas 1970 film M*A*S*H and the subsequent TV series, his Oscar and Grammy-winning song The Shadow of Your Smile (from the film The Sandpiper), and his Grammy-awarded arranging work on Natalie Coleas blockbuster album Unforgettable (1991). But in a working life that stretched from the 1940s into the new millennium, Mandel amassed enough credits as arranger, composer and musician to fill a small telephone directory.

Beginning his musical life as a trumpeter and trombone player with the bands of such eminent jazzmen as Woody Herman, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw and Count Basie, Mandel honed his composing and arranging skills, but did not become known to a wider public until he began working in Hollywood in the late 1950s.

Graphic designer and creator of the I a$?i, NY logo, whose work was full of colour and wit

Not many graphic designers manage to touch the wider world and reach beyond those who, like them, spend a great deal of time worrying about the relative legibility of serif and sans serif fonts. Milton Glaser, who has died aged 91, touched almost everybody, with a project that was both entirely characteristic of his approach to design, and at the same time an atypical one-off.

In the crime-raddled and bankrupt New York of 1976, a difficult period epitomised by the Daily Newsas famous aFord to NYC: Drop Deada headline, the state commissioned an advertising agency, Wells Rich Greene, to produce a campaign to turn perceptions around and attract tourists back to the city. The agency in turn asked Glaser to give the campaign a visual hook. The sketch defining his idea made on the back of a torn envelope in a taxi is now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
