Students Only Allowed Home At Christmas If Public Follows Lockdown Rules, Says Culture Secretary
University students will only be allowed to return home to their families at Christmas if the public follows the new coronavirus lockdown rules,  a cabinet minister has said.The government is under pressure to guarantee young people are not confined to their halls of residence over the festive period because of Covid-19 outbreaks on campuses.Thousands of students are currently self-isolating in their rooms following a surge in cases at institutions including Glasgow, Manchester Metropolitan and Edinburgh Napier.Labour has asked education secretary Gavin Williamson to “ensure that every student has access to testing to allow a safe journey home” for Christmas.But culture secretary Oliver Dowden told Sky News’s Sophy Ridge On Sunday: “I very much want students to be able to go home at Christmas, and if we all pull together and observe these new rules, we follow the guidance, then we will be able to get to a point where that should be possible.”Dowden also insisted there was “definitely science” behind the 10pm curfew for pubs, bars and restaurants – despite a scientist advising the government saying he had “never heard” the measure discussed at Sage meetings.“We are reducing the closing times to stop people staying later and drinking. And the point about all of this is that everyone has their part to play. If we all play by the rules, we can ensure that there are not further, more draconian restrictions,” Dowden said.Infectious disease modelling expert professor Graham Medley said on Saturday he did not recall the curfew being discussed by Sage.Tory backbenchers have continued to press the government to give MPs a chance to vote on coronavirus measures before they come into force, with MP Steve Baker warning that “liberty dies” with the government “exercising draconian powers” without parliamentary scrutiny.More than 17 million people – a quarter of the UK population – will be under tougher coronavirus restrictions later on Sunday as new measures are introduced in Cardiff and Swansea from 6pm.People will not be able to enter or leave the areas without a reasonable excuse. They will not be able to meet indoors with anyone they do not live with, with extended households suspended.Related...

Culture secretary plays down reports BBC critics were offered top jobs

Russian GP: Lewis Hamilton bids to equal Schumacher's F1 record – live!
Lap-by-lap updates from Sochi, race starts 12.10pm BSTLewis Hamilton on pole as he bids to match SchumacherGet in touch! Email Luke or tweet @LukeMcLaughlin 11.33am BST Red Bull’s Christian Horner speaks to Sky on his hopes and aims for Max Verstappen’s start: “First of all, unlike the last two starts, I’m hoping he gets a decent start this week ... the Honda guys have been working really hard on that. But it’s the dirty side of the grid, so the most important thing for him is to get in that tow as quickly as he can, behind Lewis. And then Lewis is starting, if you like, on the less preferable tyre. So it will be fascinating to see how that plays out.” 11.29am BST The Formula 1 season so far has provided a healthy amount of excitement, with the odd, inevitable procession thrown in, and the ingredients already in the pot for today’s Russian Grand Prix in Sochi contain plenty of potential for drama.Britain’s endlessly impressive world champion and the current drivers’ championship leader, Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, produced pole position on Saturday under massive pressure, narrowly sneaking into Q3 after a couple of earlier mishaps left him with just over two minutes to deliver a lap good enough to make it into the final shake-up. He found a way to make Q3, and was then fearsomely fast in taking pole. Continue reading...

Two is the magic number: why are we fascinated with power couples?
From Ant and Dec, through the Rodham-Clintons, to the Knowles-Carters, some people work better when they’re part of a duoThere is something about the “power of two” in our culture, a unique, contained bond that can form between two people and generate a particular catalysing spark. We are fascinated by “odd couples” but not odd trios; we love watching double acts and obsess over Hollywood couples; so many great achievements seem to have been the work of dual partnerships: Lennon and McCartney; Marie and Pierre Curie; French and Saunders. But what is that something?Perhaps one of the reasons I’m so drawn to duos like this is that I am not a natural collaborator. As a child, I ploughed my own furrow and was, I suspect, rather similar to Briony, the hero of Ian McEwan’s novel Atonement: “One of those children possessed by a desire to have the world just so.” Briony not only writes the play she puts on at the start, but designs the posters, programmes and tickets – and constructs the sales booth. Way to go, Briony! Well, up to a point. In my professional life I’ve had to learn to be collegiate. Television – and to a lesser extent the newspaper industry – relies on teamwork to get the programme to air or the paper to press. Continue reading...

We need to rethink social media before it's too late. We've accepted a Faustian bargain | Jeff Orlowski
A business model that alters the way we think, act, and live our lives has us heading toward dystopiaWhen people envision technology overtaking society, many think of The Terminator and bulletproof robots. Or Big Brother in George Orwell’s 1984, a symbol of external, omnipotent oppression.But in all likelihood, dystopian technology will not strong-arm us. Instead, we’ll unwittingly submit ourselves to a devil’s bargain: freely trade our subconscious preferences for memes, our social cohesion for instant connection, and the truth for what we want to hear.
