Letting kids into ‘R’ films makes movie-going insufferable
With its compelling action scenes and incoherent plot, the Charlize Theron spy thriller “Atomic Blonde” received mixed reviews. Even critics who praised it acknowledged its flaws. No one, however, thought it was kiddie fare. Except, that is, the people sitting next to us at the AMC Century City in Los Angeles. They brought two children...

Will McGregor v Mayweather save American boxing – or bury it?
What does it say about the sport’s long-term health that a one-off stunt will be boxing’s biggest event in the US for years?Jimmy’s Corner is a classic dive on 44th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in Manhattan, a half-block east from the neon marquees and flashing Jumbotrons of Times Square. The bar is warmly lit and slender, hardly wider than a walk-in closet, open seven days a week from 11.30am to 4am. The booze is cheap, the jukebox is loaded with Stax classics and the walls are a dense assemblage of posters, memorabilia and photographs culled from owner Jimmy Glenn’s panoramic life in boxing.

History lesson: Nuremberg rebuilt – a summer tour of Germany, part two
Continuing his tour, Kevin Rushby finds great art and cultural attractions in a city known for rallies and trials – and which has restored more than its medieval centre• Part one: Bavaria | Next week: the Baltic coastOn my way into Nuremberg, I read an article about modern art in which a theatre production is called a “Nuremberg rally of artistic desecration”. How, I wonder, can a city deal with becoming a byword for slavishly marching to the wrong beat? That was before the war, I remind myself, almost beyond living memory.That first evening I head into the medieval city from the station and find I’ve chanced upon a music festival: the streets are packed with buskers – everything from a young lad sawing uncertainly through a violin concerto, to slick rock bands selling CDs. The crowd is mainly German and they have packed every bar and restaurant to the rafters. It feels like the entire city is pulsing with excitement, determined to extract every ounce of pleasure from a fine summer evening. Continue reading...

Hungry Alastair Cook works up an appetite for West Indies’ buffet bowling | Andy Bull
England batsman was quite happy to leave a lot of what the tourists served, certain as he was that something altogether more tempting would soon appearThere was a moment, early on the first afternoon of this Test, when the West Indian attack threatened England’s batsmen. It came when Tom Westley was dismissed lbw, and England were 39 for two. By midway through the match’s second day, as over followed over, hour followed hour, session followed session, that moment started to feel as thought it was a very long time ago indeed. Alastair Cook’s batting can have that effect. Cook’s score rolled on, as inexorable as the tide and just about as fast-moving too. Jason Holder, West Indies’ young skipper, played Canute, powerless to send Cook back. He faced 407 balls altogether, in nine hours and 22 minutes of unruffled batting, dismissed, in the end, when he lost concentration and missed a straight ball.

Meera Sodha’s tomato curry recipe
In India, tomatoes tend to be used as a background ingredient, with the odd, and very tasty, exceptionLast year I moved house and finally got a patch of earth to call my own. The first thing I did was plant seeds of my favourite vegetables in every inch of soil. I soon learned, however, that there’s a hierarchy of joy when it comes to home-growing, and there’s nothing I’d rather get dirt under my fingernails for than a tomato: I could inhale the smell of those vines for hours. It’s a deeply seductive fragrance of sweet tobacco and heady days in the sun. But the smell is a drawn-out tease, the start of a long drumroll, because the fruits take their time to arrive. When they do, they come in gangs: too few to too many in a matter of days.India has a vast library of dishes that use tomatoes, but they tend to be in the background. Rarely are they the star, as they are in so many Mediterranean dishes, from spaghetti napoletana to gazpacho, which are built tomato-first. We have just a few rare jewels that truly celebrate the tomato, such as Keralan tomato fry and Gujarati sev tameta shaak; but it’s thakkali kuzhambu, from Tamil Nadu, on which today’s recipe is (very) loosely based. The sweetness and acidity of tomatoes is married to classic pickling spices, then tempered with curry leaves, tamarind and coconut: the ingredients that define south Indian cooking.

Reuters(AP) — Finnish police say a stabbing in the western Finland city of Turku that killed two people and wounded eight is being investigated as murder with possible terrorist intent. The National Bureau of Investigation, which is heading the investigation, says Saturday that those killed in the attack a day earlier are Finnish citizens, while the wounded include one Italian national and two Swedes. Police said Saturday they have identified the suspect, an 18-year-old Moroccan citizen, but did not release his name.

Swansea vs. Manchester United 2017 live stream: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch online
Swansea want to play the spoiler, but Manchester United look very, very strong. The English Premier League season is one week old, and already there’s been a few twists and turns. Swansea City will be hoping to add a big twist to the early stretch of the season by upsetting Manchester United on Saturday — but that’s going to be a tough, tough challenge for the Welsh side. The Swans did well to hold Southampton to a 0-0 draw in their opening match, but Manchester started the season in utterly dominant fashion against West Ham in a decisive 4-0 win. Their team has been heavily rebuilt over the last two seasons, and Jose Mourinho really seemed to find a combination that worked going forward with Romelu Lukaku supported by Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. A similar performance here could prove to be just as entertaining for Manchester United fans — and deeply scary to fans of other clubs hoping to have a strong showing in the title race this season. Manchester United have a slight possibility of getting two players back from the injured list this weekend, but it still looks unlikely that either Ashley Young nor Luke Shaw will play. Swansea City might get Leon Britton back if he can pass a late fitness test, but none of Fernando Llorente, Ki Sung-yeung, or Nate Dyer will be available while they work their way back to health.

Yotam Ottolenghi’s peach recipes
There are few things as, er, peachy as a ripe peach (and even unripe ones have their uses)I went to a party earlier this summer and took a tray of ripe peaches instead of a bottle of wine. I would never have dreamed of taking a tray of, say, avocados or a bunch of bananas. It’s not that those fruit are any less special; it’s just that they don’t have quite the same wow factor, that tempting, “eat me now” look of a perfectly ripe peach. The difference between peaches and avocados is all to do with the way the fruits ripen. Bananas and avocados (along with pears and tomatoes) are climacteric and often store their sugar in the form of starch. Once picked, a simple hydrocarbon gas called ethylene triggers the process that converts that starch back to sweetness. This makes such fruit a logistical dream for those who grow and sell them: they can be picked unripe and shipped hard (so they’re not prone to bruising), and ripened once the travel is done. (On a smaller scale, you can achieve a similar effect at home by putting an unripe fruit in a paper bag with a ripe one. The ripe fruit will emit ethylene, which helps ripen the unripe fruit.)

It's fine to talk about your abortion – but don't mention your elective caesarean
The ‘normal birth’ campaign may have come to an end, but ‘natural’ childbirth is still seen as the ideal by far too manyIt is a striking quirk of this country that childbirth and breastfeeding have become more politicised than abortion. We are now at a point where you could announce to a crowded room that you had two abortions in your 20s and chances are most people would shrug. But mention that you’re having an elective caesarean, or are giving your baby formula milk from birth, and too many will look at you as if you are advocating heroin for infants.Strangely, you never hear people insist that the only way to have root canal surgery is with “natural dentistry”, or that you simply must opt for a “natural colonoscopy” to experience things as nature intended. Nor will you hear many acknowledge how much medical advances have helped reduce maternal and infant mortality rates in Britain, which have declined sharply in the past century. Instead, the theory that so-called “natural” childbirth is the ideal has become so established that it is a genuine shock to realise that the Royal College of Midwives’ “normal birth” campaign, in which women are strongly urged to think of birth without medical intervention as the goal, has only been going for 12 years. It is even more shocking to think this could now change. Continue reading...

'There are hundreds of sick crew': is toxic air on planes making frequent flyers ill?
Kate Leahy used to work as cabin crew, until she was signed off sick. Then a young colleague died in 2014. She talks to the former staff looking for answersThree years ago, Matt Bass, 34, died suddenly in his sleep. According to his father, Charlie, he had been feeling unwell for a few months. He’d lost weight, had digestive and respiratory problems, and suffered from severe fatigue. Doctors thought he might have Crohn’s disease, but were struggling to reach a diagnosis.Matt was cabin crew for British Airways, and on the day he died had returned overnight from Accra, Ghana (by cabin crew standards, a relatively short, six-hour flight). He went for a scheduled MRI scan, hoping to get to the bottom of his ill health, then in the evening to a crew friend’s house in Slough for pizza. After a few hours, he said he needed a rest and went to lie down. When his friends couldn’t wake him, they administered CPR. An ambulance arrived and took him to A&E, where paramedics tried to revive him; but he never woke up. Continue reading...

What I’m really thinking: the disappointed counsellor
While in the final year of my training, undertaking a placement in a mental health service, I saw how stretched these support services areI put four years of my life and £12,000 of my hard-earned savings into training to be a counsellor. I sacrificed my time, relationships and mental health so I could give my all to this exhausting and emotionally draining course, which included spending two years in personal therapy.While in the final year of my training, undertaking a placement in a mental health service, I was exposed to how stretched these support services are. Despite still being a trainee, I saw clients who were suicidal, psychotic and seeking help for borderline personality disorders. I was not trained to help these clients, but I didn’t have a choice. They had to see me or go back on the waiting list for six months. Staff did their best to support me but they were so stretched, I was left to cope with difficult situations by myself.

Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace 2017 live stream: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch online
Liverpool will hope to record their first win of the Premier League season at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday. Liverpool made a disappointing start to the new Premier League season last weekend, throwing away a lead in stoppage time away at Watford. They'll certainly be hoping to bounce back in their first home game of the campaign, coming as they host Crystal Palace on Saturday. Palace made an ominously poor start to their own season, losing 3-0 to newly promoted Huddersfield in manager Frank de Boer's first competitive game in charge. The Eagles will be desperate for a reaction, and to build some momentum early in the campaign. Liverpool will be without Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Danny Ings, who are all injured. Nathaniel Clyne faces a late fitness test, and even if fit could be second choice to young right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold. Palace will certainly be without Bakary Sako and Wilfried Zaha; Yohan Cabaye, Pape Souaré, James McArthur and Connor Wickham are all early doubts.

Karl Ove Knausgaard: what makes life worth living?
Apples, plastic bags, teeth – the bestselling Norwegian author brings his forensic attention to everyday objects to explain the world in a letter to his unborn babyAugust 28. Now, as I write this, you know nothing about anything, about what awaits you, the kind of world you will be born into. And I know nothing about you. I have seen an ultrasound image and have laid my hand on the belly in which you are lying, that is all. Six months remain until you will be born, and anything at all can happen during that time, but I believe that life is strong and indomitable, I think you will be fine, and that you will be born sound and healthy and strong. See the light of day, the expression goes. It was night outside when your eldest sister, Vanja, was born, the darkness filled with swirling snow. Just before she came out, one of the midwives tugged at me, You catch, she said, and so I did, a tiny child slipped out into my hands, slippery as a seal. I was so happy I cried. When Heidi was born one and a half years later, it was autumn and overcast, cold and damp as October can be, she came out during the morning, labour was rapid, and when her head had emerged but not yet the rest of her body, she made a little sound with her lips, it was such a joyous moment. John, as your big brother is called, came out in a cascade of water and blood, the room had no windows, it felt like we were inside a bunker, and when I went out afterwards to call his two grandparents, I was surprised to see the light outside, and that life flowed on as if nothing in particular had happened. It was 15 August 2007, it may have been five or six o’clock in the afternoon, in Malmö, where we had moved the previous summer. Later that evening we drove to a patient hotel, and the day after I went to pick up your sisters, who amused themselves greatly by placing a green rubber lizard on top of John’s head. They were three and a half and nearly two years old at the time. I took photos, one day I’ll show them to you.That’s how they saw the light of day. Now they are big, now they are used to the world, and the strange thing is that they are so unalike, each of them has a personality entirely their own, and they always did, right from the start. I assume that’s how it will be with you too, that you already are the person you will become. Continue reading...

I'll learn to play my ukulele when I've read Dostoevsky in Russian
It’s been on my mind since I learned of the death of Kitty Lux, sweet-voiced co-founder of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great BritainIt is not generally known that I do a passable George Formby imitation. Foreign students at a language school I taught at were privileged to hear my Happy Go Lucky Me, but as they’d never heard of Formby they couldn’t really judge how good I was. They clapped anyway. This was before Brexit, when foreigners still thought the English were nice people with a keen sense of the ridiculous.Knowing my fondness for Formby, my brother bought me a ukulele. It sits accusingly by the side of the settee. Time, time. I’ll learn to play it when I take up reading Dostoevsky in Russian, walk the Silk Road and snowboard. There is much to look forward to when I retire. Continue reading...

To the Back of Beyond by Peter Stamm review – psychology of a marriage
To stay or to go? This inscrutable novel is a haunting love story of subtlety and pathosTo leave or not to leave, that is the question. Excitement and adventure, or the warm bath of blissful routine. Characters in Swiss writer Peter Stamm’s remarkable novels – On a Day Like This, Seven Years – seem equally attracted to both, afraid of missing out on the action, but afraid too of being unprotected and disoriented in a hostile world. In love with life, frightened of life – perhaps the two are not so different.“Andreas loved the empty mornings,” begins On a Day Like This, “when he would stand by the window with a cup of coffee in one hand and a cigarette in the other.” Only the threat of a cancer diagnosis will force Andreas out of a habit of balancing sexual excitement with zero commitment, and into a journey that is at once geographical, emotional and, more curiously, a form of time travel – back into the past, forward into whatever future awaits him, each personified in a woman.
