England v New Zealand: third Test, day four – live!
Updates from the fourth day’s play at HeadingleyThe Spin: sign up for our weekly cricket newsletterGet in touch! You can email Daniel or tweet himFar be it for the OBO to offer guidance of any kind, but before the start of what we know for almost certain is another bazzing day of Test Match CricketTM, it might be worth taking a moment to be very, er, intentional about, um, staying in the moment to be, well, present in enjoying it. We’ve seen some seriously affirming stuff these last few summers, but even in that context this has been a helluva ruckus. May we know many others. Somehow, during the course of it England have become a team, winning the big sessions and refusing to retreat when things have gone against them. If it wasn’t for the comfortable familiarity of some avante-garde slip catching, it’d be quite disconcerting. Continue reading...

'We're Not Striking Deals With The Lib Dems Or SNP,' Labour MP Says
Sturgeon, Starmer and DaveyA Labour MP has insisted they will not strike deals with the Lib Dems or SNP to take down Boris Johnson.David Lammy said Labour fights for “every single seat” and that they want to win the next election “outright”.It comes after tactical voting saw Johnson’s party wiped out in two crunch by-elections in Tiverton and Honiton and Wakefield.Asked if Labour was ready for an alliance with the SNP, the shadow foreign secretary said they would not be striking any deals.Sky News host Trevor Phillips told him Labour was “never going to go back to where Labour was in Scotland”.But Lammy hit back: “That is quite a categorical statement and I’ve got to say that’s a matter for the electorate.”'So, you're not telling me no deal with the SNP?' - @TrevorPTweetsLabour’s @DavidLammy: "We're not striking deals with the SNP, or the Liberal Democrats.

Shows with a feelgood factor are boosting box-office takings“I simply remember my favourite things and then I don’t feel so bad,” sang Maria among the mountains in The Sound of Music, introducing to the world one of the most memorable musical lines of all time. Uplifting sentiments like these now seem to have set sales of tickets to musicals in the West End of London soaring to new heights, with pundits suggesting two years of misery have left people desperate to lift their spirits.Box-office figures from the Society of London Theatre (Solt) reveal that, since the beginning of the year, West End musicals outperformed their 2019 equivalents in 20 out of 22 weeks for attendance and 19 out of 22 for revenue. There are fewer plays than in 2019, which might partly explain the strong sales, but people in the industry think it’s more than that. Continue reading...

Vaccinologist Sarah Gilbert: ‘We need to be better prepared for a new pandemic’
The woman who co-developed the AstraZeneca vaccine on reassuring doubters, her new book and having a baby penguin named after herDame Sarah Gilbert, 60, is a professor of vaccinology at Oxford’s Jenner Institute and author, with Catherine Green, head of Oxford University’s clinical biomanufacturing facility, of Vaxxers – a gripping narrative about developing the AstraZeneca vaccine that is wonderfully accessible and illuminating without dumbing down the science. She lives in Oxford with her husband and grownup triplets.Another wave of Covid-19 is reported to be on its way. To what extent are you able to anticipate what the virus will do next and prepare?Anticipating what the virus will do next is the job of those who do surveillance in epidemiology. But if a new sequence is thought to be becoming dominant, our problem is that making a new version of the vaccine takes time and has to be tested and approved. What’s been happening, as we go through one wave after another, is that the virus has been too quick. Regulators cannot approve a vaccine unless they can see the clinical data, then you have to scale up manufacturing to produce the vaccine in quantity. Developers are still using the original vaccines, which are supplying good protection against the disease. Continue reading...
