How to wear coords | Jess Cartner-Morley

Essentially a suit for softies – it looks smart and makes you smile

Meet the coord. Matching separates, but in knit or jersey or silk, with no tailoring. It is essentially a suit for softies, and I am quite into this as an emotional tone. In a coord you are wearing two matching pieces, so you get that vibe of having made a decisive, deliberate choice about your look. But not being structured like a traditional suit means that this look is not stiff. Best of all, if you are wearing a coord then you are not afraid to embrace fashion.

A coord will always have an element of boldness in its colour or print or detail – it must, to qualify as a coord. You can’t just wear a plain navy jumper and a skirt in the same colour. That’s cheating.

Rikers 2.0: inside the battle to build four new prisons in New York City
Activists, politicians and former prisoners are divided over how to close the notorious Rikers Island complex and what should replace it – if anythingOn clear days, Kevin Steele would peek through the cracked window of his six-by-eight foot solitary confinement cell on Rikers Island to get a glimpse of his Bronx neighbourhood and mentally escape.Steele was just 17 years old in June 2010 when he was brought to Rikers Island, arguably America’s most notorious prison and the nation’s largest penal colony. He had been arrested for his involvement in a fight and had no means to pay an assigned $85,000 bail. He spent three years at Rikers awaiting trial, 13 months of that in solitary confinement.

Should I put money I inherited towards an Isa or the mortgage?
I have a lot to pay on the mortgage but I wonder whether putting it into my pension might save on taxQ I am 50 years old and have just inherited £35,000. This is likely to be the last money I inherit, so I want to be careful about what I do with it. We still have a lot to pay on the mortgage, but apart from that we are debt-free. I have several pensions from previous and current jobs but sadly none have much in them.Would it be best to put the money I have inherited on the mortgage or should it go into my current pension (and will this save on tax)? Or should I put it in Isas and hope for the market to improve by the time I retire, which won’t be any time soon?NM Continue reading...

I was living in the background of my life – until I realised shyness isn’t shameful
At 14, I became self-conscious about my voice and decided to hide away. Then, years later, it occurred to me the world needs quieter people, tooI remember the day shyness took over my life. I was 14 years old and in the middle of a French conversation lesson at school. I loved French, probably because I fancied myself as some kind of chic Parisian, sipping espresso in a corner cafe. We were in the brand new language laboratory, with its cassette players that were very flash for the time. The teacher told us to record ourselves speaking about a film we had seen recently. Perfect. I recorded myself, in the most English of French accents, with utter confidence. Then, I pressed “play” to listen back. All I heard was a little kid talking. Where was the highly insightful monologue I had just recorded?My immediate reaction was to assume I was listening to someone else’s tape, or that I had hit the wrong button. But then, it dawned on me. That was my voice. And there it was. At 2pm on an ordinary Tuesday afternoon, I realised there was something weird about me. Continue reading...

Many migrants once voted Tory. Now their loyalty is fading fast | Nesrine Malik
Conservative supporters with roots outside Britain are turning away in the face of race-baiting and fearmongeringThe sorites paradox is concerned with the question of when an object ceases to be an object. To demonstrate, a hypothetical mound of sand is depleted one grain at a time: at what point, after which grain, does the mound of sand cease to be a mound at all? This paradox is what now defines the status of those migrants to the UK who have traditionally voted Conservative, and the party loyalties of their children.

A Radical Romance by Alison Light review – a tender but oblique memoir
Alison Light’s account of her marriage to the historian Raphael Samuel is both admirable and frustratingAlison Light’s last book, the Samuel Johnson-shortlisted Common People, was what she called “family history as public history”, using generations of her own working-class family as a lens through which to examine the social conditions that shaped them. In A Radical Romance she uses a similar approach to more recent and personal history – her 10-year marriage to the radical historian Raphael Samuel, until his death in 1996. She draws on her own extensive diaries and letters to offer a hybrid memoir that is at once a tribute to Samuel and his work, a portrait of a part of London in the grip of accelerated social change, and an account of love, frustration and grief. Perhaps inevitably, these different currents vie with one another for precedence, but Light is keenly aware of these tensions, interrogating her own process and the nature of memoir as history, “a history from inside”: “Memoir weaves its way between what is often called the private and the public, the personal as opposed to the historical… I find these terms far more porous than absolute.”“Sorrow, like guilt, never ends, though it ebbs and flows,” she writes Continue reading...

My Argos £99 spa birthday experience proved useless
No one told us we should have kept the original receipt and it doesn’t say so anywhereIn October 2018 I bought a £99 Activity Store experience voucher (spa day and afternoon tea for two) for my wife’s birthday from Argos. It was valid until 1 December this year. Last month she tried to use it on its website but was told that without the original receipt this was not possible. I had thrown it away – who keeps receipts from a year ago? I contacted the store directly (no help), then the helpline (five times; twice they promised to call back but never did), then I sent a registered letter to customer relations (which they never replied to). When I finally made contact, the main issue is still the need to produce the receipt. Because I paid cash it cannot be traced via bank or credit card. I was not supplied with an e-receipt. The catalogue number has changed so it cannot be traced that way. Continue reading...
