Tottenham v Newcastle: Premier League – live!
Live updates from the 1pm BST Premier League kick-offMatt Doherty: ‘I wasn’t even young … it was embarrassing’Get in touch! Email Ben or tweet him 1.11pm BST Team news news: Mourinho tweaks things, with Giovani Lo Celso replacing Tanguy Ndombele in Tottenham’s sole change from the 5-2 win at Southampton. Mourinho suggested Ndombele, who played 90 minutes in victory against Shkendija on Thursday, remains short of fitness, saying Lo Celso is in better condition. Mourinho was waxing lyrical about Lo Celso after victory at St Mary’s when the Argentinian replaced Ndombele at half-time. Sergio Reguilón, meanwhile, is among the Spurs subsitutes. As for Newcastle, Jamal Lewis (eye) and Allan Saint-Maximin (ankle) both miss out through injury, while Andy Carroll drops to the bench. 1.06pm BST Sheffield United v Leeds is into the second half: Related: Sheffield United v Leeds: Premier League – live!

Trump names Amy Coney Barrett for supreme court as first debate looms – live
Amy Coney Barrett: what will she mean for women’s rights?Biden hopes for repeat of 2012 as Trump debate nearsRecipe for chaos: election threatens to snap US societyRobert Reich: Trump Nation has already secededSign up for Fight to Vote – our weekly US election newsletter 1.05pm BST … and welcome to another day of politics in the US, which in this instance means the fallout from Donald Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the supreme court, to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and also the countdown to the first presidential debate, on Tuesday. A countdown and a fallout and it’s not even 9am: the news is explosive these days, after all.In terms of what’s moving, obviously the polling isn’t yet in terms of what effect Barrett’s nomination, a strict conservative to replace a liberal lion, might have on the presidential race. An ABC News/Washington Post poll out today has Biden 10 points up nationally and the New York Times and Siena College make it eight – which is nice, but as Rick Wilson likes to say, national polls mean nothing. Remember who won the popular vote by nearly 3m in 2016? Not Trump. Remember who won the presidency? Not Hillary Clinton.

Britain's failure to learn the hard lessons of its first Covid surge is a disaster | William Hanage
Despite now having evidence that test and trace is the only way to fight the virus, the UK has lost control at the crucial moment• Dr William Hanage is professor of the evolution and epidemiology of infectious disease at HarvardBritain is in the grip of an extraordinarily dangerous outbreak of forgetfulness. During the spring, more than 50,000 people died – far more than the yearly total for any flu outbreak in living memory. Deaths are, sadly, an expected outcome of any pandemic. But this experience is also an opportunity to learn – assuming governments are willing to do so.Since the first outbreaks of Covid-19 early in the year, scientists and governments have learned a lot about the virus. They’ve learned that the best way to fight it is through testing, tracing and isolating – and they’ve learned what the consequences of not fighting it can be. But the UK seems to be ignoring most of these hard lessons. Instead of evidence-based policy, its response – initially urging people back into offices, outsourcing testing and tracing to corporate giants, and opting for half-measures in the face of a virulent second wave – looks more like policy-based evidence.

Idles: Ultra Mono review – pummelling riffs and desolate beauty
(Partisan) The Bristol punks return with more precision-tooled muscularity and a hint that they won’t be hidebound by genre The ascent of Bristol punks Idles from thrilling cult live proposition to unlikely Top 5 album stars in 2018 was remarkable. It was even more so when you consider that their sound owes far less to the melodic pop smarts of regular chart-botherers Green Day and Blink-182 and more to the blunt-force trauma of the avowedly uncommercial Shellac and Fucked Up.

The irresistible lure of island life
What is it about islands which so fascinates, and soothes after time spent in cities?The love of islands is a widespread affliction – why else are we still reading Robinson Crusoe after 300 years? Why Treasure Island? Why after 75 years and over 2,000 episodes are we still listening to Desert Island Discs? From the blessed isles of Tír na nÓg and Thomas More’s Utopia to the island-dramas of CS Lewis and Enid Blyton, it seems we can’t get enough of them.As a boy in my local library in Fife, I'd sit on scratchy carpet tiles and open an immense atlas Continue reading...
