Jennifer Arcuri turns Johnson heartbreak into comedy horror | Marina Hyde
She says she’s kept his secrets and he’s treated her like a gremlin. Could she be dangerous to the PM?On the day Boris Johnson addressed the CBI, it’s great to get a firmer idea of what he meant when he said “fuck business”. And who better to give it to us than the CEO of one of the businesses he will surely end up completely fucking. Yes, it’s time to hear a whole lot more from our favourite cray-cray multihyphenate, the model/entrepreneur/ infosec-something Jennifer Arcuri. Finally, a proper sublebrity enters the election campaign, as Jennifer breaks six weeks of silence with an ITV special, a Good Morning Britain appearance and a mesmerising Victoria Derbyshire interview in which she declared “No one’s understood Boris Johnson better than I have for the last 10 years”.So tell us about the man behind the man. He’s “deep”, revealed Arcuri, not “shallow as a paddling pool”. Right. A “very considerate person”. Also, “a man of his word”. Go on. “He saw my arc, he saw my progression as a woman graduating and becoming a mature entrepreneur.” Any more? “He liked my events. He enjoyed coming. You know, he really did like Innotech.” Continue reading...

Nile millions of years older than previously thought, study says
Geologists have extensively debated the age of the Nile River, with some early figures settling on around 6 million years. They've also wondered how the 4,132 mile-long river kept its persistence for so long, continually flowing north, a very unusual direction for river water to take. Now, researchers believe they may have the answers to these questions.

‘There is an anger’: where did it all go wrong for Scotland? | Ewan Murray
It’s 21 years and counting since Scotland last qualified for a major tournament – if they don’t reach Euro 2020 it would be the most severe blow yetThe latest depressing snapshot – for “greater good” see “alien concept” – preceded the conclusion to a Scotland Euro 2020 section that will be equally met with sighs of relief and shrugs. The Scottish Professional Football League is resisting a call to postpone matches immediately before Steve Clarke guides his team into the March play-offs. Twenty one years have passed since Scotland featured in a finals; with attitudes like this, no wonder.Kazakhstan’s visit to Hampden Park might just draw more than the official (and questionable) attendance of 20,699 who watched a recent dismissal of San Marino. This campaign frittered out long ago, with the curious subplot of the Scots being two wins away from clawing their way back towards relevance courtesy of the Nations League. Continue reading...

Jan Garbarek Group review – smooth jazz and squeaky toys
Royal Festival Hall, LondonAmid celebrations of the ECM label’s 50th anniversary, the Norwegian saxophonist delivered some compelling exploratory solos This year’s London jazz festival coincides with the 50th anniversary of ECM records and, in celebration, the festival’s opening weekend featured a host of artists from that label’s roster. All share characteristics that have come to define Manfred Eicher’s imprint, performing ethereal European jazz that focuses on texture and often seems quite stridently un-American, even when it features American musicians. Throughout Sunday, German pianist Julia Hülsmann’s quartet reimagined bebop with all the blues surgically removed; Albanian vocalist Elina Duni and British guitarist Rob Luft invented a beguiling Balkan bossa nova through heavy use of looper pedals; while saxophonist Joe Lovano’s densely written new Trio Tapestry project, featuring pianist Marilyn Crispell, owed more to the 12-tone serialism of Schoenberg than to Sonny Rollins.

6 'gifts' every great presentation offers its audience
Caiaimage/Martin Barraud/Getty Images Briar Goldberg, the director of speaking coach for TED, says that an effective speaker should ask: "What gift are you giving to your audience?" There are six types of gifts you could consider giving your audience. Incorporate a way that they could change, or a solution to a problem that they could be facing. Or help them identify a problem they didn't even know they had. Help the audience have epiphanies, but also provide entertainment. They should come away feeling something and a sense of community.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. You've likely already had to give an important presentation in your career. If not, you will, and if you have, there'll be more. So why not arm yourself to get it really right?

Johnson’s Brexit would devastate business – the CBI must be hoping that he’s lying | Simon Jenkins
Telling employers that a vote for him would ‘end uncertainty over Brexit’ and he would ‘set business free’ are pure fantasiesWhy would anyone in business vote for Boris Johnson? His pretend courting of the CBI and others is another of his one-night stands. Just now, what he needs are the votes of “Labour leavers”, not capitalist remainers. So at the CBI conference on Monday he fobbed off the latter with Johnsonian lies.The biggest whopper is that a vote for him would “end uncertainty over Brexit”. It will not, it will prolong it. As long as Johnson pledges to withdraw Britain from Europe’s customs union and single market, the current commercial uncertainty will continue. Serious trade talks do not begin until next year, when according to Johnson either the UK will default to WTO tariffs or a new deal must be sought with the EU. The latter will be on EU terms, of long duration and infinite complexity. Uncertainty will be total. Continue reading...
