Frank Lampard wary of Valencia threat despite off-field uncertainty
• Chelsea manager warns of threat posed by ‘fantastic’ side• Spanish club sacked Marcelino Garcia Toral last weekThe situation almost feels too perfect for Chelsea. There is a buzz around the place after the 5-2 victory over Wolves on Saturday, Tammy Abraham is scoring goals for fun and their first game back in the Champions League pitches them against a side whose preparations could hardly have been more chaotic.Everything suggests that Valencia are in a state of utter turmoil before facing Chelsea this evening. It is less than a week since Peter Lim, the club’s owner, controversially sacked the respected Marcelino Garcia Toral and replaced him with the former Spain Under-21s manager Alberto Celades, who received a harsh introduction to coaching at club level when his first game ended in a 5-2 defeat at Barcelona on Saturday night.

Labour cannot out-remain the Lib Dems. Thankfully, it doesn’t need to | Tom Kibasi
It need not be a one-dimensional party defined by Brexit. Here’s how Jeremy Corbyn can resolve the crisisThe Liberal Democrats, at their Bournemouth conference this week, are in triumphant mood. This year has witnessed the strange rebirth of the party as the champions of remain. And its latest commitment, to revoke article 50 without a further referendum, is a naked attempt to outflank Labour among highly motivated remainers.The Lib Dems have become the standard bearers for a form of elite politics where commitment to Britain’s membership of the EU eclipses all other matters. This affliction is also found in parts of the Labour party, where many self-identifying “moderates” have seized upon Brexit in the absence of locating anything else to believe in. No matter that ordinary voters have a much wider set of concerns about their lives, from wages to public services to climate change. Continue reading...

Woman fights to keep her three emotional support monkeys
Texanne McBride-Teahan of the St. Louis suburb Creve Coeur, is fighting in court to keep her emotional support animals: a black-capped capuchin monkey named Paula, a patas monkey named Zoey, and a bonnet macaque named Kalie Anna. Shortly after McBride-Teahan moved in to her home, neighbors apparently complained. From CNN: Monkeys are considered an "inherently dangerous animal" along with alligators, lions and pythons and are thus prohibited in residential areas, according to the City of Creve Coeur... McBride-Teahan considers the monkeys emotional support animals and has a doctor's letter and registration cards for them, she told CNN through Facebook. The animals help her cope with post-traumatic stress disorder related to an incident when she was a teenager, McBride-Teahan added... "Monkeys are little. Less than 9 pounds. Pictures show they aren't dangerous. To me they are life savers for my PTSD. We just want to live in peace," McBride-Teahan told CNN. After all this, the monkeys may need emotional support humans.

Facebook’s ‘undesirable’ appearance policy keeps blocking the wrong people
Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Lex Gillies loves Instagram. As a rosacea activist and beauty blogger, the app has become her primary tool for sharing her work and connecting with other people who live with skin differences. “I didn’t know anybody with rosacea in my real life and it was the internet that gave me all of these people who I could speak to and they would understand,” Gillies told The Verge. But over the past few days, her relationship with Instagram has strained. Last week, photographer Sophie Harris-Taylor opened an exhibition in London titled “Epidermis.” The show features models with different skin conditions, like rosacea and acne, on full display. Gillies modeled for one of Harris-Taylor’s photos. To draw awareness to the show, Gillies decided to promote her photo on Instagram and put some money behind it to increase its reach beyond her nearly 20,000 followers. “I want people to go to the exhibition and for people to see the work,” Gillies said. “Because it’s not very often that you get artists wanting to focus on something like skin conditions, people talking about rosacea.” View this post on Instagram Swipe across to see the three emotions experienced when confronted with an enormous photo of your naked face hanging in a flipping gallery ⁣ ⁣ I cannot describe how emotional this experience was. Walking around the space, surrounded by photos of women at their most vulnerable. All strong. All beautiful. All changing perceptions of skin conditions one photo at a time. ⁣ The amazing @sophieharristaylor 'Epidermis' exhibition is open until the 13th of September and it's free. You should go if you can! ⁣ (ALSO the irony is not lost on me that in the same week that my photo is being bought as actual art by strangers in a gallery, the same image is also being censored by Instagram for being 'undesirable' ... #undesirablesofinstagram)⁣ ⁣ #skinpositivity #rosacea #rosaceaawareness A post shared by Lex Gillies - Rosacea/Beauty (@talontedlex) on Sep 8, 2019 at 10:47am PDT But no matter what she did, Instagram wouldn’t approve her promotion. After first submitting it, she was greeted with a pop-up notification in the app that said, “This ad isn’t running because it uses images that excessively focus on a person’s body or body part, or depict unlikely before-and-after results.” She appealed the decision, and in a handful of follow-up emails, Gillies finally received another response. This time Facebook, which owns Instagram, expanded on the ad policy that led to her inability to promote her post. “We don’t allow ads that focus on aspects of a person’s body to highlight an undesirable or idealized body state,” Facebook’s policy reads. Facebook lists over a dozen “body depictions” that the platform does not allow to be promoted, including images that focus on “fat/cellulite” or “ill-fitting clothing.” Facebook said that it doesn’t allow users to promote close-ups of ears, nostrils, and feet or “excessive or grotesque food consumption” like “eating live animals.” This list also included close-up images of “a person’s skin with the aim of highlighting medical conditions” like “acne, eczema, and dermatitis.” This is likely why Gillies’ post wasn’t allowed to be promoted. In theory, the policy is meant to block predatory ads that target people who are overweight or have skin conditions, pushing unusual and often medically dangerous miracle cures. “Ads referring to someone’s body or appearance are personal in nature and we don’t want users to feel singled out,” Facebook explained. “Apparently my skin is put in the same ‘undesirable’ bracket as ‘eating live animals’... so that’s nice to know.” But in practice, the policy isn’t nuanced enough to recognize ads like Gillies’, which are looking to celebrate those same conditions. Gillies responded to Facebook’s policy on her blog, writing, “Apparently my skin is put in the same ‘undesirable’ bracket as ‘eating live animals’... so that’s nice to know.” Facebook has been making this same mistake for years. In 2016, an Australian group called Cherchez la Femme attempted to advertise an event focusing on body positivity and feminism. In the group’s post, they included a photo of Tess Holliday, a famous plus-size model. But the photo fell victim to the same “undesirable” tag, resulting in the entire campaign being blocked. After outcry from the body positivity community, Facebook reversed the decision. It wasn’t until The Verge reached out to Instagram and Gillies’ followers began to post selfies tagged with #UndesirablesofInstagram that the company decided that her rosacea photo did not violate the platform’s rules. “I looked into it and this ad was rejected in error and we are sorry for the mistake,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “It’s now up and running.” But until the policy changes in some way, Facebook and Instagram will likely continue to strike down ads that aren’t picturing people as “undesirable,” but rather as desirable figures with bodies worthy of being celebrated and not in need of some miracle cure. After her ad was allowed to run, Gillies told The Verge, “This response from them is so disappointing. Not only have they completely glossed over the fact that they referred to skin conditions as ‘undesirable’ but they are point blank refusing to comment on their wider disregard and targeting of the skin positivity community.” “This campaign was never about the ad,” she continued. “That was just a tangible symptom of their awful and discriminatory behaviour.”

The Far Side trails 'new online era' for Gary Larson's beloved cartoons
Immediate excitement has greeted one of the first sign of life from the hugely popular franchise since the publicity-shy artist retired it in 1995Fans of the surreal, the bizarre and sardonic anthropomorphic cows are in a fervour after The Far Side cartoonist Gary Larson’s website was updated this weekend with promises of “a new online era”, 24 years after the reclusive creator retired at the age of 44.Larson’s iconic Far Side cartoons were syndicated in more than 1,900 daily newspapers from 1980 to 1995, treating readers to daily offerings from his offbeat visions of the world. In one of his most famous cartoons, a female chimpanzee finds a blonde hair in her mate’s fur, and asks him: “Been doing more ‘research’ with that Jane Goodall tramp?” (Goodall approved.) In another – voted one of his best by scientists – a boffin with a large rectal thermometer stands behind a brontosaurus, the caption reading: “Professor Higgenbottom was never heard from again, leaving the cold-blooded/warm-blooded controversy still unresolved.” His image of a caveman pointing to the tail of a stegosaurus and letting his audience know that it is called “the thagomizer, after the late Thag Simmonds”, led paleontologists to adopt the invented term.

Prankster gets the obituary he probably deserves
Recently-deceased Joseph A. Heller, Jr., an 82-year-old dad from Connecticut, was known for being a prankster. So it makes sense that his family would take the opportunity to send him off with an obituary worthy of his twisted sense of humor. Some highlights: Joe Heller made his last undignified and largely irreverent gesture on September 8, 2019, signing off on a life, in his words, “generally well-lived and with few regrets.” When the doctors confronted his daughters with the news last week that “your father is a very sick man,” in unison they replied, “you have no idea.”... Being born during the depression shaped Joe’s formative years and resulted in a lifetime of frugality, hoarding and cheap mischief, often at the expense of others. Being the eldest was a dubious task but he was up for the challenge and led and tortured his siblings through a childhood of obnoxious pranks, with his brother, Bob, generally serving as his wingman. Pat, Dick and Kathy were often on the receiving end of such lessons as “Ding Dong, Dogsh*t” and thwarting lunch thieves with laxative-laced chocolate cake and excrement meatloaf sandwiches. His mother was not immune to his pranks as he named his first dog, “Fart,” so she would have to scream his name to come home if he wandered off... There he met the love of his life, Irene, who was hoodwinked into thinking he was a charming individual with decorum. Boy, was she ever wrong. Joe embarrassed her daily with his mouth and choice of clothing. Read the rest

Seinfeld is heading to Netflix in 2021
Friends might be leaving Netflix next year, but the streaming service just landed another giant beloved series: Seinfeld. Seinfeld will be available to stream on Netflix beginning in 2021, the company announced today. That’s when the show’s contract with Hulu (now owned by Disney) comes to an end. It’s unclear how much Netflix paid for the show, but it was rumored to be in the same wheelhouse asWarnerMedia’s Friends deal, which was reported at $425 million. “Seinfeld is a one-of-a-kind, iconic, culture-defining show,” Sony Pictures Television Chairman Mike Hopkins told Los Angeles Times. “Now, 30 years after its premiere, ‘Seinfeld’ remains center stage. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Netflix to bring this beloved series to current fans and new audiences around the globe.” Although Seinfeld is a WarnerMedia-owned property (it’s similar to Friends, which aired on NBC in the ‘90s, but whose rights ended up with WarnerMedia at some point), Sony Pictures Television ended up with the rights to the show. Rumors suggested that Netflix was bidding on the series alongside WarnerMedia (HBO Max), Comcast (an untitled NBCUniversal streaming service), and Hulu. The original deal for Seinfeld in 2015 cost Hulu $160 million.
