Dominic Cummings Impresses No-One By Claiming Good Campaigns Have 'Hot Women And Beer'
Dominic Cummings stunned people when he claimed winning political campaigns have “hot women and beer and pizza”.Writing on his personal substack website on Thursday, the former top aide to prime minister Boris Johnson shared his idea of how Labour could win in the next election.Pulling apart the idea of a “work-life balance”, Cummings said: “This is what winning political campaigns look like.“There are hot women and beer and pizza and music in the office on Friday and Saturday night because the place is bursting with energy.“And they enjoy kicking their opponents down the street at 10pm on a Saturday night  when the other side are in ‘work-life balance’ mode.“Labour’s team know the PM and Carrie sit ludicrously twitching at Twitter on Saturday night when the papers papers drop – they should be driving the two of them crazy with rage and panic every Saturday night, thus creating a wave of horrific phone calls across Tory-world and constantly ruining everyone’s weekends.”He goes on to claim that this is what the Vote Leave campaign was like when it won the EU referendum in 2016 and when the Conservatives were victorious again in the 2019 general election.Cummings has been vocal in his opposition to Downing Street ever since he resigned in November 2020.Despite being one of the most influential – and controversial – figures in government during his time as an adviser, he has repeatedly condemned the way Johnson runs his cabinet and No.10′s handling of the pandemic in recent months.Unsurprisingly, his latest post breaking down his reality of politics did not go down very well.There’s something very brave about men who look like pigeon eggs demanding “hot women” in the office. https://t.co/0ARhbcGW1G— Ash Sarkar (@AyoCaesar) October 22, 2021Imagine the music.

The not so cursed child: did Harry Potter mark the end of troubled young actors?
As we reach the 20th anniversary of the magical British blockbusters, the real magic lies in the way its young stars have stayed on the rails – unlike many before themThere are many magical things about the Harry Potter film series, which marks its 20th anniversary this month with a re-release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Perhaps the most miraculous one, though, is that its three stars – Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint – are still alive, apparently content, and not noticeably addicted to class A drugs.Each continued acting, occasionally even starring in bona fide hits: Radcliffe in The Woman in Black; Watson, who is also a UN women goodwill ambassador, in Beauty and the Beast. Grint, star of the M Night Shyamalan series Servant, also became a father last year – his partner is another former child actor, Georgia Groome of Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging – and celebrated by joining Instagram. Even there, he has shown a characteristic level-headedness by posting a mere six times in 11 months. Continue reading...

How to retrain your frazzled brain and find your focus again
Are you finding it harder than ever to concentrate? Don’t panic: these simple exercises will help you get your attention backPicture your day before you started to read this article. What did you do? In every single moment – getting out of bed, turning on a tap, flicking the kettle switch – your brain was blasted with information. Each second, the eyes will give the brain the equivalent of 10m bits (binary digits) of data. The ears will take in an orchestra of sound waves. Then there’s our thoughts: the average person, researchers estimate, will have more than 6,000 a day. To get anything done, we have to filter out most of this data. We have to focus.Focusing has felt particularly tough during the pandemic. Books are left half-read; eyes wander away from Zoom calls; conversations stall. My inability to concentrate on anything – work, reading, cleaning, cooking – without being distracted over the past 18 months has felt, at times, farcical. Continue reading...

Aid to Haiti sent by sea to bypass rising gang violence, UN food agency says
World Food Programme scrambles to provide relief through air and sea to earthquake victims as local violence soarsThe World Food Programme (WFP) is now using seafaring barges to ship supplies to earthquake victims in southern Haiti, after escalating gang violence made overland journeys unsafe for aid convoys.Since the 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the country’s southern peninsula in August, thousands of survivors have been sporadically cut off from Port-au-Prince, the capital, by roadblocks set up by warring gangs, leading relief workers to employ novel workarounds, including shifting aid to barges and helicopter airlifts.
