Así pasarán los candidatos a la Junta la jornada de reflexión

Los candidatos a la Presidencia del Gobierno de Castilla-La Mancha aprovecharán la jornada de reflexión de este sábado para disfrutar de la familia y los amigos, descansar y coger fuerzas para la jornada electoral del domingo, 26 de mayo. Así, el presidente de Castilla-La Mancha y candidato socialista a la reelección, Emiliano García-Page, ha dicho, en declaraciones a los medios, que tiene previsto ir la playa con su familia, en concreto a Cullera (Valencia), como ya hizo en las últimas elecciones autonómicas. Según ha confesado, no le importa conducir y, de hecho, en las últimas generales se fue a Lisboa y regresó por Salamanca superando los mil kilómetros. Por su parte, el candidato del PP, Paco Núñez, pasará la jornada en Almansa, donde votará este domingo, y aprovechará la jornada para hacer algo de deporte a primera hora de la mañana y pasar el día jugando con sus tres hijos. Por la tarde aprovechará para acudir «como un aficionado más» a ver el partido del Club Baloncesto Almansa, que se juega el ascenso a la categoría LEB Oro. El candidato de Unidas Podemos, José García Molina, pasará el día con su familia y amigos. Comerá en familia y aprovechará si puede para dar algún paseo y pasar tiempo con los suyos. Mientras tanto, la candidata de Cs, Carmen Picazo, pasará la jornada de reflexión con su marido y sus hijos, que después de tantos días de campaña les ha visto poco, y por la tarde, acudirá a un cumpleaños con su familia. De su lado, el candidato de Vox, Daniel Arias, participará en una barbacoa privada junto a los integrantes de su candidatura y sus familias. De este modo, Arias pasará la jornada de reflexión disfrutando de «un agradable y tranquilo» día en el campo.

On Chapel Sands by Laura Cumming review – twists right to the end
Kidnapping and a community’s silence ... the story of the disappearance of the author’s mother, aged three, is a highly skilful uncovering of family secretsIn 1929 Laura Cumming’s mother Betty was kidnapped from a beach in Lincolnshire. It was autumn, with few people around, but after “a prolonged moment of parental inattention”, the three-year-old had gone. The police were called to investigate but no one in the village of Chapel St Leonard had seen anything. For Betty’s parents, Veda (who had taken her to the beach) and George (summoned from where he had got to that week in his job as a travelling salesman), the next few days were a nightmare. But this wasn’t an abduction like James Bulger’s or Madeleine McCann’s. Not only did Betty turn up safe, in a house 12 miles inland. The circumstances that led to her being snatched were shrouded in secrets and lies. Until Veda and George adopted her, just a few weeks previously, Betty had been called Grace. The person who took her was a relative, not a stranger. And far from knowing nothing, people locally – locked in “acts of communal silence” that would continue for decades – knew far more than they let on.Revelations keep on coming right to the end, with each new twist forcing Cumming to reappraise the story Continue reading...

Not-so-smart Ovo disconnected my electricity by mistake
I was switched to pay-as-you-go by an agent when he was changing my gas meterOvo Energy fitted smart meters to our flat for both gas and electricity last September. I requested that the meters report my usage to Ovo on a monthly basis, but in November, after some issues with the readings, I asked for the gas meter to report daily so that I could keep an eye on it. Three days later I got home to discover I had no electricity.As my account was more than £300 in credit I assumed something was wrong in our flat so changed the fuses, checked cabling and, in the end, called Ovo. Its call centre is not 24 hours, so I was put through to UK Power Networks, which sent two friendly engineers at 2am to have a look. Power was going to the meter so, from their end, things looked fine. After a bitterly cold night without heating or light, I discovered that, in the process of making the changes to my gas meter, Ovo’s agent had switched my electricity meter to pay-as-you-go. Since it had no money stored on it, and couldn’t access the £300 in my online account, it quickly ran through the emergency “credit” and I was disconnected. Continue reading...

Is it ethical for a woman to date a man for a free dinner? Only if they’re very upfront | Arwa Mahdawi
A third of heterosexual women have resorted to the ‘foodie call’ – including one who asked all her Tinder matches to send pizzaWhen it comes to dating and relationships, a lot of women want only one thing: free food. According to a groundbreaking study, up to a third of heterosexual women have dated men they’re not romantically interested in simply because they want a free meal – a phenomenon known as the “foodie call”. The research found that women who subscribe to traditional gender roles and score highly on the “dark triad” of personality traits (psychopathy, machiavellianism and narcissism) were more likely to engage in them.I’m not sure what the point of this study was, but it’s worth noting a number of the researchers behind it came from Azusa Pacific University, an evangelical Christian university in California whose stated mission is to develop “disciples and scholars prepared to impact the world for Christ”. And, while Jesus was a big fan of giving food to the hungry, you imagine he would not have been too keen on scamming snacks. Continue reading...

Someone accused the US president of rape. The media shrugged | Arwa Mahdawi
Why the relative quiet around E Jean Carroll’s allegation? Is it sexism? Outrage fatigue? Journalistic cowardice? All of the above?Donald Trump once boasted he could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone without losing any votes. While this thesis hasn’t been tested – yet – I suspect he’s probably right. Just look at the muted reaction to the allegations the president once sexually assaulted a woman on Fifth Avenue. Just look at the depressing and predictable way the E Jean Carroll story is fizzling out.On Friday, New York magazine published an excerpt from Carroll’s forthcoming book in which the writer recalls encountering Trump in Bergdorf Goodman, a Manhattan department store, in the mid-1990s. Carroll alleges that Trump violently forced himself upon her in a dressing room after asking for advice on a present he was getting for a female friend. “I have never had sex with anybody ever again,” she wrote.

How apartheid killed Johannesburg's cycling culture
Racial segregation meant cycling lost status in South Africa earlier and more intensely than in the rest of the western worldCycling Cities: the Johannesburg Experience is published by the Foundation for the History of Technology“The writer counted, in the space of only four minutes, 93 native cyclists riding past the Astra theatre,” wrote a journalist for the Star newspaper in July 1940. Standing almost 80 years later on the same corner of Louis Botha Avenue at the same time and day of the week – 6.30pm on a Monday – it is hard to imagine. The theatre is long gone and not a single cyclist is to be seen on the car-choked thoroughfare.What happened to Johannesburg’s once vibrant commuter cycling culture? The dominance of the automobile marginalised the bicycle in many cities around the world through the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s but that process was accelerated in South Africa by apartheid. When policies of spatial segregation forcibly moved black people to faraway townships at the periphery of the city, the distance between work and home increased dramatically and cycling collapsed as an everyday practice.
