Koala hospitals fill with victims as Australia's bushfires rage on
Australia is currently ablaze, with enormous, out of control fires expected to burn across the country for months. Summer doesn't hit Down Under until December, but this bushfire season is already showing potential to be one of the most devastating in recent years — for humans and wildlife alike. Six people have been confirmed dead so far, with over 600 homes destroyed and 2.5 million acres burned in NSW alone. Both Sydney and Adelaide are smothered in smoke with residents advised to stay indoors, and a Code Red has been issued for parts of Victoria — the highest bushfire warning level in the state. The last time Victoria declared a Code Red was in 2010. Read more...More about Australia, Bushfires, Koalas, Australian Animals, and Fires

Hannah Diamond: Reflections review – trance-pop rescued from good taste
(PC Music)On these melancholy bangers, the PC Music singer uses nursery rhyme-like melodies and a girlish sing-song delivery to essay the pain of being lovelorn and vulnerableHere’s an affecting companion piece to Caroline Polachek’s recently acclaimed Pang: another breakup album with production handled by one of the PC Music collective, who rescue trance-pop sonics from the tyranny of good taste. Polachek’s record featured work by Danny L Harle, while Diamond’s is produced by AG Cook. Where Polachek is erudite and poetic, Diamond is prosaic; where Polachek’s vocals are astonishingly skilful, swooping into high registers, Diamond’s are unremarkably ordinary. Continue reading...

TL;DR: Apple AirPods with a wireless charging case are on sale for £159 on Amazon, saving you 20% on list price. Amazon recently dropped the price of Apple AirPods, and stocks ran dry very quickly.

Microsoft allowed to sell software to Huawei once again
Photo by James Bareham / The Verge Microsoft has been granted a license to export software to Huawei once again. The software giant was caught up in a long line of US-based technology companies that have been forced to comply with President Trump’s executive order to crack down on Chinese tech companies. “On November 20th, the US Department of Commerce granted Microsoft’s request for a license to export mass-market software to Huawei,” says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to Bloomberg. “We appreciate the department’s action in response to our request.” It’s not immediately clear what “mass-market” refers to, but Microsoft sells Windows and Office licenses to Huawei. It’s likely that Microsoft is at least able to sell Windows licenses to Huawei once again, which... Continue reading…

We’ve already got a climate crisis – let’ not turn it into a culture war | Alice Bell
Shouting slogans won’t change anyone’s mind. We activists must engage even with those whose views we find abhorrentJust 2% of the election debate was spent discussing the climate crisis. That includes the second Jeremy Corbyn gave it in his opening statement. When it was finally discussed – for a scant 45 seconds in the last 10 minutes – Corbyn was heckled after highlighting the effects our changing climate would have on the world’s poorest, with a jeer of “Oh, here we go!”. For those of us who work on raising awareness and finding solutions to the climate crisis, it was chilling. Corbyn himself looked shocked and seemed to gesture to the audience as if to say, “See what I’m working with?”The urgency required to deal with our environmental crisis means this has to be the climate election Continue reading...

Experience: I learned to play the piano without a piano
I Googled the dimensions of a keyboard, drew the keys on to a piece of paper and stuck it on my deskI was 11 years old when I asked my mum for piano lessons, in 2010. We were in the fallout of the recession and she’d recently been made redundant. She said a polite “no”.That didn’t deter me. I Googled the dimensions of a keyboard, drew the keys on to a piece of paper and stuck it on my desk. I would click notes on an online keyboard and “play” them back on my paper one – keeping the sound they made on the computer in my head. After a while I could hear the notes in my head while pressing the keys on the paper. I spent six months playing scales and chord sequences without touching a real piano. Once my mum saw it wasn’t a fad, she borrowed some money from family and friends, and bought me 10 lessons. Continue reading...

An Economic History of the English Garden by Roderick Floud review – finance and flowers
Adding up the cost of England’s gardens … from Capability Brown to geraniums and neat lawns in the suburbs“I love visiting other people’s gardens,” admits Roderick Floud. Nothing unusual about that, of course: what’s not to like about strolling around beautifully landscaped lawns and borders? But as well as admiring the flowers, Floud – a professor of economic history – has a keen eye for the investment of time, skill and money needed to create and maintain a garden. He has written a new kind of garden history, one which focuses on the economics of our love affair with water features and colourful flower beds.Beginning with the restoration of Charles II in the 17th century, Floud’s study ranges across 350 years of English history, from the designers of royal estates who could earn millions of pounds in today’s money to jobbing gardeners mowing lawns in the suburbs. He explores gardening as a major industry, one largely excluded from GDP figures, yet now worth at least £11bn, one which has “changed the face of England not once but many times”.

The Amber Light review – warming treatise on whisky's liquid gold
This agreeable documentary combines the social history of drinking whisky with a tour of ScotlandAdam Park’s documentary opens with a title card acknowledging that “the story of whisky is a familiar one”, before carving out its own distinct and distinctly engaging niche. It’s less interested in the business side of whisky than its social aspect: how this liquid gold has been drunk through the ages.To this end, Park joins the whisky scholar Dave Broom on a tour of Scotland, and those sites where the drink was originated, developed, reclaimed and knocked back. Invariably – this having clearly been one of documentary’s more enjoyable shoots – their itinerary involves Broom taking a dram or two himself. The title refers to the impeccably hip watering hole the film concludes in, but also to the warm, convivial glow radiating out from the screen. Continue reading...

Either way, the past of my city, the ancient Egyptian port city of Alexandria, is something I feel incredibly strongly about.As an architect, I have been deeply impacted by the rapid loss of buildings along with their architectural and historical values. The constant fear that the essence of the city will disappear and that I will lose all traces of my own past here, as well as the pasts of others who have lived in this city over the centuries gave me the urge to start documenting what is still standing before people or time tear it down.

Why you shouldn't buy a Roomba on Black Friday. (Get a Shark instead!)
I have a Roomba vacuum, and I really do not like it. If I had a sledgehammer readily available, I would come down on that little jerk with the wrath of Thor himself.  My Roomba never did anything to me personally, no, but I’m so damn tired of its asshole tendency to dive-bomb into my walls, aimlessly wander around in the same three-foot radius indefinitely, and wedge itself under my couch while blaring out an error message that I now hear in my nightmares. And after all that, my carpet still has crap in it. Cool! OK, maybe I’m ranting. But I’m sensitive, and my Roomba hurt my feelings.  In “reality,” it’s honestly not that bad. I don’t have to vacuum like I used to because my semi-annoying robot helper has it covered. My regret isn’t in that I bought one, but that I paid so much for it.

Prince Philip's chain-smoking nun mom in 'The Crown' was a real-life hero
Of all the things a regular watcher of The Crown might expect to see in Buckingham Palace, a chain-smoking Greek Orthodox nun with a history of institutionalization and a love of card games might be low on the list. Truth is often stranger than fiction though, and Season 3 of The Crown didn’t have to stray too far from history to introduce Prince Philip’s mother Princess Alice of Battenberg (also known as Mother-Superior Alice-Elizabeth or Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark) to its story. Princess Alice appears in “Bubbikins,” the fourth episode of The Crown Season 3, two seasons after her character had a quick cameo in the show’s first episode as a guest at her son Prince Philip and then–Princess Elizabeth’s wedding. Back in the premiere, Elizabeth the Queen Mother and Mary of Teck looked down on Princess Alice, taking note of her nun’s habit and mentioning that she had recently been released from a sanitorium, but “Bubbikins” gives more context for Princess Alice’s place in the royal family.  Read more...More about Netflix, The Crown, Prince Philip, Entertainment, and Movies Tv Shows

Transformation from nice to nasty is one Spurs must undergo to be winners | Eni Aluko
Hiring of José Mourinho shows Daniel Levy has changed his mindset and the players must do so too if they are to succeedTottenham have been a likeable club for such a long time. From David Ginola to Christian Eriksen they have had gifted players and allowed them to play nice football, without winning very much. There have been two League Cups in the past 20 years: this is a team that have not trod on many people’s toes. Outside Arsenal and Chelsea, and even then just for tribal reasons, nobody can really hate Spurs. I certainly like them a lot. This is not a bad image to have, but it is one that is about to change – because Tottenham have just decided to get ugly.Once they fully adopt José Mourinho’s win-at-all-costs mentality there is going to be a big change in how the neutral perceives them. But first, their players are going to have to go through a huge mindset shift. They are going to change from being a squad of individuals who everyone likes and respects, people like Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura who play with a smile, to a team nobody particularly likes, led by a manager who deliberately antagonises his rivals.
