Calvert-Lewin rescues point for Everton to leave Burnley in bottom three
Everton have been top of the table this season, Burnley always close to bottom, yet the two sides proved surprisingly evenly matched in an entertaining draw. Rightly or wrongly, both teams feel they ought to be winning games such as this, and both created enough opportunities, though neither proved capable of asserting themselves sufficiently to claim all three points, partly because both goalkeepers were on top form.Everton got off to a dreadful start, sloppy passing by Alex Iwobi and Allan in their own half surrendering possession to Robbie Brady, who lost no time in tucking a shot inside Jordan Pickford’s right-hand upright from a couple of yards outside the penalty area. It was only the second goal Burnley have scored in the league at Turf Moor all season, and they hardly had to work for it. Indeed, with under three minutes on the clock they had barely broken sweat.

Tucked into the Covid-19 stimulus package? Protecting corporations from liability | David Sirota and Julia Rock
The proposed legislation would shield corporations from liability if their workers die from Covid-19 in unsafe workplacesIn early October, Harvard researchers sounded an alarm: they released a report showing a pattern of coronavirus deaths surging soon after workers filed requests for workplace safety assistance from the US labor department. The takeaway was clear: workers are desperately begging the government to help protect them from a deadly pandemic, the government has been unresponsive, and lots of workers have subsequently died preventable deaths.

Francis Ford Coppola: ‘Life is a great screenwriter’
The film director, 81, on beauty in the eye of the audience, finishing with The Godfather and the family of humanityBeing able to critique yourself is a good skill. Often when a film has been released I’ll ask: “Did I make mistakes?” When I made The Cotton Club in 1984, people were telling me there were too many black people in it and too much tap dancing. I would say: “But it’s a movie about black people tap dancing.” Years later, I realised I had taken out half of the backstory. It was good to go back and fix that.Life is a great screenwriter. My daughter, Sofia, got such awful, unjust criticism for her performance in The Godfather Part III. She was 18 and was being told she’d ruined her father’s film. It was a deep wound for the poor kid. They were gunning for me, but she took the bullets. Now she is a more famous movie director than me. She got the last laugh! Continue reading...

One to watch: King Hannah
The duo at the heart of this Liverpool band make their presence felt with an EP of slow-burning delightsLessons in how to set tables don’t often feature in bands’ creation myths, but that was the catalyst that brought the core members of Liverpool’s King Hannah together. Guitarist Craig Whittle had first seen Hannah Merrick singing at a college band showcase. “I remember Hannah playing a song solo, just guitar and vocals, and I was blown away,” he told When the Horn Blows. But it wasn’t until several years later, when they were co-workers in a bar and she was instructing him in how to lay out cutlery, that he was finally able to persuade her to write songs with him.It’s a good thing he did: their recently released debut EP, Tell Me Your Mind And I’ll Tell You Mine, is a slow-burning delight, Merrick’s smoky, hypnotic voice pitched somewhere between Hope Sandoval and Lana Del Rey, while Whittle provides the languorous, Kurt Vile-like guitar lines, most spectacularly on the Sharon Van Etten-endorsed Crème Brûlée. But while there’s an Americana feel to the music, Merrick’s lyrics stay closer to home: Meal Deal is about the difficulty of flat-hunting for the precariat. This reportage approach to writing is deliberate. “We don’t want to sound clean or polished,” says Whittle. “We want to sound real, and dynamic and authentic.” Continue reading...
