How often should I check my credit report? Once a year probably isn't enough
David Lees/Getty Images Your credit report is a detailed log of all of your lines of credit and credit-based activity, like taking out a mortgage loan or opening a credit card. There are three credit bureaus, each of which create their own report — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — and use it to help lenders decide whether you're a good candidate for credit. Credit reporting mistakes happen, though, and they could cause serious problems — like the inability to qualify for financing.  For that reason, you should get in the habit of regularly checking your three credit reports. Ideally, you'd do this at least once a quarter if not once a month. Checking your credit reports frequently puts you in a position to react quickly when and if fraud or credit reporting errors occur.  Read more personal finance coverage.

From Piqué and Ramos to Bridge and Terry: international bust-ups
Sterling and Gomez are far from the first players to have been involved in a contretemps with a teammate on national dutyMost of the time their tongues were wedged in their cheeks, but there were moments when daggers were drawn — and within the Spanish national team there were genuine concerns about the relationship between Gerard Piqué and Sergio Ramos. Rivals for their clubs, they were partners for their country. Except that a lot of the time people questioned whether Spain was Piqué’s country, and that dimension always lingered in discussions of the players’ relationship. It was driven of course by the often bitter battle between their clubs, with Piqué more than prepared to attack Madrid and that tension sometimes taken to the national team. At least — and this is the key — by the comically partisan media. This was the battle for years, an obsession. Not that they ever came to blows, or even close. Often it was a game. Ramos summed it up when he responded to one Piqué remark by saying: “Coming from Iniesta, it would annoy you, but it’s Piqué and we all know it’s part of the show with him.”After one game Pique claimed that “in the directors box at the Bernabéu sit the people who pull the strings in this country”. To which Ramos replied: “They have more to answer there than us”. When Ramos was sent off in a clásico, he walked past Piqué and said: “Go on, keep talking.” Afterwards Piqué insisted it was a “clear red, but they’re so used to referees letting them get away with it”. Very different characters, if perhaps not quite as different as they would like to think, they were actually a brilliant partnership and they got on better than many people liked to imagine. One day when Spain wore white, like Real Madrid, Ramos sidled up to Piqué and said: “White looks so good on you that you’re lost for words.” Sid Lowe Continue reading...

Paramount Pictures The new trailer for "Sonic the Hedgehog" is out now. The latest preview of the movie shows a redesigned Sonic after his first iteration was widely panned around six months ago. The movie was due to hit theaters in November, but the criticisms of the original look were so bad that the movie's director, Jeff Fowler, vowed to change Sonic's look, which meant delaying the release until 2020.

Investigators found uranium particles at a secret facility in Iran, suggesting a further rejection of the nuclear deal
Associated Press The UN's nuclear watchdog reported on Monday that uranium particles had been discovered at a site not previously declared by the Iranian government, multiple news reports say. The confidential report did not name the facility that had been producing the particles, Agence France-Presse reported, but cited sources as saying that the samples had been taken from a facility in Tehran's Turquzabad district. Iran previously claimed that the Turquzabad site is a carpet cleaning factory that has no other purpose. Iran has been taking incremental steps away from the 2015 nuclear deal to stand up to President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the agreement and increased sanctions under his "maximum pressure" campaign.

If the US military is facing up to the climate crisis, shouldn't we all? | Michael Klare
Pentagon officials view climate breakdown as an existential threat to human society – and are already taking actionWe have heard from the scientists on climate change, with their meticulous data on ecosystem degradation and species loss. We have heard from the climate deniers, with their desperate attempts to deploy countervailing arguments. Both groups have mobilized substantial blocs of voters in pivotal countries, producing gridlock in global efforts to slow the pace of global warming. It is time, then, to hear from another group of informed and influential professionals: senior military officers.Military leaders have not said much in public about global warming, in part because they’re reluctant to become involved in partisan political issues (as climate has become) and partly because top government officials—in the United States, at least—have actively discouraged such involvement. Nevertheless, senior officers are fully aware of warming’s deleterious effects and have devised a thorough analysis of its strategic implications. As I demonstrate in my new book, All Hell Breaking Loose: The Pentagon’s Perspective on Climate Change, senior American officers believe that global warming is already threatening the survival of many poor, resource-deprived countries and poses a significant risk to even the wealthiest of nations.

Next year's Apple Watch might be suitable for diving
After a pretty impressive showing with the Apple Watch Series 5, what's left for Apple to improve on the next iteration, likely coming in 2020 under the name Apple Watch Series 6? According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), one feature that's coming is improved water resistance, alongside overall faster performance and improved wireless transmission.  These improvements will come, Kuo claims, with the use of new LCP (liquid crystal polymer) material for the circuit board in the Watch Series 6. This is different from Series 5, which uses PI (polyimide). The new model being speedier isn't exactly breaking news, but improved water resistance is interesting. According to Apple's specifications page, Apple Watch Series 5 has a water resistance rating of 50 meters (164 feet), and can be used for "shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean." It's not suitable for "scuba diving, waterskiing, or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth."

Jane Seymour: ‘Not every designer will dress someone my age’
The actor on sharing clothes with Donatella Versace and whether re-wearing outfits is acceptableThis dress was created for [the 1986 TV mini-series] Crossings, which was based on a Danielle Steel novel, but I also wore it to the People’s Choice awards in 1996. In those days, it was part of my contract that I was given all the costumes, so I had an amazing collection. Crossings was costumed by Nolan Miller, who was famous for designing the clothes for Dynasty. I was playing a very glamorous character and was going for that Rita Hayworth look. Around that time, actresses, instead of models, started showing off the fashion of the era. Unless you are a model, it’s not something you’re really equipped to do but, when you put a gown like that on, you become a character, even on the red carpet. You can’t come in like a church mouse.Nolan became a personal friend of mine – he knew that I used to design and make all my own clothes, so we collaborated on my costumes. When I was younger I didn’t have any money so I’d buy good fabric from Liberty – the offcuts that nobody wanted – or I’d go to vintage stores, bring-and-buy sales or church sales, and turn them into outfits for myself.

Master & Dynamic’s MH40 Wireless look and feel like $300, but don’t sound like it
Looks can be deceiving Despite costing up to $300 or $400, headphones like Bose’s Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, the Beats Solo Pro, or the Sony WH-1000XM3 don’t feel like they should cost that much. Their sound quality, comfort, and ability to completely zap out ambient sound with noise cancellation aren’t up for debate. But their plastic designs just don’t make for the best first impression. The inverse can be said of Master & Dynamic’s new MH40 Wireless, a wire-free version of its original over-ear cans. They are among the few $300 headphones that actually look and feel worthy of the investment. The plush leather ear cups and smooth canvas headband help to achieve that effect, but the aluminum detailing found all over the MH40 Wireless drives it home. As a sucker for build quality, these headphones ooze style, but more importantly, the feeling that I got my money’s worth. That feeling doesn’t extend, at least as fully, to the sound quality of these headphones or their feature set, which is limited. Compared to M&D’s original MH40, and even its new MW07 Plus truly wireless earbuds, the MH40 Wireless’ sound performance is weaker, with too much emphasis placed on high frequencies. I can usually count on this brand to go heavy on mids and highs, without overdoing it on either end. That results in a warm, exciting sound. And while these new wireless headphones are pleasant to listen to in the office (especially since they can maintain a connection to my phone and laptop at the same time), they sound noticeably compromised compared to M&D’s other products. This could be because the wireless MH40 headphones use 40mm drivers instead of the same 45mm-sized drivers from the wired version. That’s not a huge difference in size, though, so I’m not confident that this is the sole reason behind the change in sound. M&D told me that it strived to make these headphones lighter, so they can be comfortable enough for all-day use. It achieved that goal by replacing the original’s heavier steel frame with aluminum detailing. And in doing so, this fixes one of my biggest issues with the original MH40s. Their hefty weight meant that more clamping force was necessary to keep them snug on your noggin. These new headphones weigh less, and as a result, are much more comfortable to wear, so the change for the sake of ergonomics is one I can get behind. Certainly, this change is also a cost-cutting measure, and plausibly, it could have made other adjustments to, say, the drivers, ear cups, or other internal hardware in such a way that it impacts sound quality. It’s not that the MH40 Wireless sound bad, they don’t. It’s just that, based on my experience with Sony’s 2018 flagship wireless headphones, and my colleague Chris Welch’s collective knowledge on more recent competing models, they don’t sound nearly as good as what $300 can get you elsewhere. As far as executing on the main duties of modern wireless headphones — like playing music, handling phone calls, and using your preferred voice assistant to tell you the weather or the next event on your schedule — the MH40s can handle all of that. But they don’t go much beyond this bare minimum amount of functionality that I’ve come to expect from headphones, even those that are cheaper than this model. These don’t have noise cancellation or a transparency hearing mode, and the navigation buttons are tough to wrangle — and I haven’t gotten better at controlling them yet. These buttons are splayed behind the cylindrical barrel where the headband latches onto the right ear cup. Buttons should be easy to find, but they blend in on M&D’s wireless headphones a little too well, competing with other design touches that can be easily mistaken for buttons. For instance, the volume up button is too close to the ear cup hinge, which feels like a button. It helps that the volume and multifunction buttons are next to each other, so once you’ve found one, you’ve found them all. But even so, their precarious placement makes them prone to erroneous presses, and it just feels cramped, especially considering that the whole left ear cup goes unused. The right ear cup houses every single button, including the power button (which doubles as the pairing button), a USB-C charging port, and two beam-forming microphones. M&D claims 16 hours of battery life for the MH40 Wireless. That’s less than most other competing wireless headphones at this price. That’s forgivable, if they meet the claim, but they failed to do that during my week with them. Despite having a power-saving feature that turns them off automatically after 10 minutes of inactivity, they failed to reach the 16-hour mark after each recharge. I’d estimate that I got around 12 hours of combined use each time. On the upside, these headphones charge quickly via USB-C. They can fully charge in about an hour, according to my testing. If you’re someone who is seeking out the best sound and most complete feature set (why wouldn’t you be?) available in a pair of $300+ headphones, there are other options you should be looking at instead — namely the ones that I listed above: Sony’s WH-1000XM3, the Bose Noise Cancelling 700, or Beats Solo Pro. The way that Master & Dynamic’s wireless MH40 look is their biggest asset, and that’s only worth so much if there isn’t much else going on inside. Vox Media has affiliate partnerships.
