UK Labour party pledges free broadband funded in part by Silicon Valley tax
Fiber optic cables being installed in Germany. | Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images The UK’s opposition Labour party has promised it will give free full-fiber broadband to every home and business in the country if it wins Britain’s upcoming December elections. The party said it would nationalize part of UK telecoms firm BT to achieve its goal, and introduce new taxes on Silicon Valley tech giants like Apple and Facebook to fund the network’s maintenance. Parts of the UK’s internet infrastructure would be nationalized Labour’s shadow chancellor John McDonnell told BBC News the plan would cost £20 billion ($25.74 billion), but would ensure that fast internet speeds were available in every corner of the UK. “It’s visionary I accept that, but other countries are having these visions and we’re not,” said McDonnell.

Black Lives 1900 review – WEB Du Bois at the Paris exposition
A sumptuous book, edited by Julian Rothenstein, on a striking exhibit that showed the progress of African Americans since slaveryAt the start of the 20th century, world fairs, like art biennales today, were among the most glittering spectacles available to the public. Staged in cities such as London, Berlin, Stockholm, Turin and New York, they were multimedia constructions, encyclopedic projects, expressions of confidence about the value of science, progress, civilisation itself. Nations, almost always western, were invited to create exhibitions that best showed off their achievements. These could be artworks, feats of engineering, historical costumes, documentation of their imperial possessions. At once bling and informative, jingoistic yet evoking a confident cosmopolitanism, they were hugely popular.Such fairs reached their acme in Paris, which became so renowned for the pageants and panoramic displays it staged that it was dubbed “Queen City of Expositions” and “Faerie City of the World”. It staged five in the second half of the 19th century; the one in 1900 was the most monumental of them all, encompassing over 100 hectares of land and attracting over 50 million visitors. A contemporary observer claimed it was “the vastest gathering of men and of things, of all kindreds, kingdoms, nations and languages in the entire course of history”. It was a feast for the eye, a synthesis of market day and holiday. “What is better for a man than that he should enjoy the good of all his labour?” enthused the sociologist Patrick Geddes in his review of the closing exhibition.

Last Christmas review – a grisly, sub-Richard Curtis festive pudding
This shameless attempt by screenwriter Emma Thompson to siphon off the eggnog flavour from Love Actually is clunky and weird For years, Richard Curtis has attracted imitators to his brand of upscale London romcom. This squelchingly sub-Curtis effort is a case in point, and what’s so baffling is that it is co-written by Emma Thompson, whose undoubted screenplay skills form part of her unique double-Oscar achievement (one for acting in Howards End, the other for adapting Sense and Sensibility). And it is directed by the equally estimable Paul Feig, who gave us Bridesmaids and the Ghostbusters remake.This grisly Christmassy adventure features unbearable skittery-giggly dialogue of the sort not spoken by actual humans, while it attempts to siphon off the eggnog flavour from Curtis’s Love Actually, with a female lead who is a Frankenstein’s-monster mix of Bridget Jones and the quirky sister from Notting Hill. The film is supposedly inspired by the music of the late George Michael – who gave his permission some years ago – and when the connection between the twist reveal and Michael’s lyrics dawns on you, there is a real danger of you going into anaphylactic shock. Suffice it to say that this reveal is a time-honoured conceit that has featured in a number of films, some by very grand directors. But the weird thing is that Michael’s music and personality do not feature all that much. Continue reading...

Fortnite gets stormtrooper costumes in new Star Wars crossover
Image: Epic Games Fortnite’s latest crossover is here, and this time it’s a Star Wars-themed event timed to coincide with the release of Jedi: Fallen Order. The big inclusion is a new stormtrooper cosmetic skin, which is available in Fortnite’s item store, or you can get it for free by buying EA’s Star Wars game on the Epic Games Store. For everyone else, there’s a Star Destroyer hanging out in the skies above Fortnite’s island to gawp at. From Avengers, to Borderlands 3, and even Weezer’s latest album, Fortnite has become a key promotional venue. Previous crossover events have introduced new cosmetic items, custom maps, and even game modes. Fornite’s last Avengers crossover, for example, introduced a whole new game type including special superhero-inspired weapons. In this context, the new Star Wars costume makes for a more limited crossover, but at least you can get it for free if you were already planning on buying the new game. The big question now is whether Epic has anything in store for the upcoming release of Episode IX in December.

Tesla Model 3 and Model S just aced their report cards again
Consumer Reports likes Tesla — again.  After snubbing the Tesla Model 3 earlier this year due to reliability issues perceived by owners, the organization announced on Thursday that both the Model 3 and the Model S have regained "recommended" status.  According to CR, its members reported fewer problems with stuck latches or malfunctioning doors on the Tesla Model 3, and fewer issues with paint and trim quality on the Model S. Generally, members reported fewer issues with body hardware for both Tesla models.  The organization originally gave extremely high scores to the Tesla Model S, awarding it 103 out of a maximum of 100 points in 2015. But as reports about reliability issues mounted, CR backtracked on its glowing recommendations. Early Model 3 vehicles were widely reported as problematic, partly due to Tesla's "production hell" as the company ramped up production numbers.  Read more...More about Tesla, Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model S, Tech, and Transportation

Jofra Archer underlines England enforcer role against New Zealand A
• New Zealand A 302-6; England 26-1• Bowlers toil on flat pitch in first day of warm-up matchAfter two days of using the unhelpful Kookaburra ball in New Zealand it has already become apparent that Jofra Archer will be Joe Root’s enforcer in the upcoming Test series. England are expecting flat pitches here and, unlike on the road in the recent past, they now have a bowler to potentially transcend them.The opening day of their first-class fixture against New Zealand A side mirrored the practice match earlier in the week. Back at Cobham Oval, where the most movement on show is the rising Te Matau a Pohe bridge in the background, the hosts declared on 302 for six from 84 overs. Rory Burns then fell late on in reply when slapping to point as England closed on 26 for one. Continue reading...
