Strictly Come Dancing's first same-sex routine sparks almost 200 complaints
The groundbreaking performance on the BBC ballroom smash has garnered 189 complaints for being ‘offensive’Strictly Come Dancing has received 189 complaints following the “offensive” broadcast of its first ever individual same-sex routine this month.On the 3 November edition of the hit BBC ballroom show, professional dancers Johannes Radebe and Graziano di Prima danced together during a performance by the singer Emeli Sandé. Radebe – who is gay – told Hello! magazine that the groundbreaking routine made him feel that “for the first time in my life, I feel accepted for who I am” and that being able to perform with di Prima, who is in a hetrosexual relationship, “says so much about the people of this country”. In a post on Instagram, the 32-year-old, who joined the show in 2018, added that “love knows no boundaries”. Continue reading...

Country Music by Ken Burns review – three chords and half of the truth
Burns’s documentary is a great primer – though BBC4 is only showing a heavily edited version, and some contributions of black people and women are overlookedEight years in the making, Ken Burns’s examination of nearly a century of country music – or “three chords and the truth”, as Harlan Howard famously put it – has finally arrived. In the US, PBS is showing this documentary miniseries in its entirety: eight instalments of at least two hours each. Here, where it is being shown on BBC4, each one has been cut by about half. I daresay there are technological workarounds to remedy this deficiency that one may be tempted to find if, say, one’s beloved Townes Van Zandt was known to have fallen victim to this major editing decision. But I don’t know.At least the editing is more thoughtful than mere casual butchery. The truncated version still hangs together well, and Burns’s tracery of the musical traditions that evolve into and out of country music, the outside influences and individuals’ innovations, remains intact. It works as a great primer for beginners or, for old hands, an entertaining rerun of the basics with plenty of contemporary footage and recordings of the greats. Continue reading...

José Mourinho at Tottenham: the winners, losers and potential signings
Mourinho tried to sign Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld in his last job, but Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso may not suit his styleBy Ben McAleer for WhoScoredSpurs make the short trip to West Ham on Saturday lunchtime in need of three points. They are 14th in the Premier League, six points above the relegation zone and without a win in their last five league matches. José Mourinho’s first challenge as manager is to win an away match in the league, something Mauricio Pochettino failed to do in his last 12 attempts.Spurs’ last away win in the league came on a cold, winter evening at Craven Cottage in January – and they only won that match thanks to a 93rd-minute goal from Harry Winks. Since that victory over Fulham, Tottenham have lost nine away games in the league and drawn the other three. To make matters worse, they have given up leads at Southampton, Arsenal, Leicester, Liverpool and, most recently, Everton. Mourinho has the opportunity to end this disappointing run and set a course for the top four. But, looking beyond their trip to the London Stadium, who stands to win and lose from his appointment?

A union of 60,000 aviation workers warned of more disasters like the 737 Max crashes if Congress doesn't pass new rules on plane maintenance
Stephen Brashear / Stringer / Getty Images A transportation union representing around 150,000 workers is joining calls to overhaul rules around how non-US aviation maintenance bases are regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration. The Transport Workers Union says the bill could help prevent another "catastrophic disaster" like the two Boeing 737 Max crashes, which killed a total of 346 people. On Wednesday, the House Transportation Committee passed a bill that seeks to increase oversight by the FAA on overseas maintenance bases used by US airlines to carry out repairs on their aircraft when they are stationed outside the US.  "We don't want to have a situation where America wakes up one morning to a catastrophic disaster involving foreign maintenance of passenger aircraft, which is what happened with the Max," John Samuelsen, the TWU's president told Forbes. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. A transportation union representing 60,000 aviation workers this week joined calls to tighten regulations governing oversight of plane repairs carried out in foreign countries. The Transport Workers Union says that there is currently a gap in the law which means repairs to US aircraft carried out overseas are subject to laxer safety controls.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: What it takes to be a first-class flight attendant for EmiratesSee Also:One of Boeing's biggest customers says it will put new 777X jets through 'hell on Earth' before they are allowed to fly after the 737 Max crisisBoeing sold 60 of its 737 Max plane in the first days of the Dubai Air Show, ending a dry spell since the jet was groundedBoeing shareholders are suing the board, alleging 'careless' handling of the 737 Max development and the crisis that followed

This transforming drone can be fired straight out of a cannon
Drones are incredibly useful machines in the air, but getting them up and flying can be tricky, especially in crowded, windy, or emergency scenarios when speed is a factor.

Land Without Dreams review – the future gets stuck in the mud
Gate theatre, LondonDespite Temi Wilkey’s best efforts, including rolling in slime, Tue Biering’s play can’t decide whether it is a critique of utopianism or a message of reassurance‘I’ve seen the future and it works,” Lincoln Steffens, an American journalist, famously exclaimed after visiting the Soviet Union in 1919. This hour-long solo play written by Tue Biering for the Danish experimental company Fix&Foxy and here performed in English by Temi Wilkey appears to take a similarly positive line. I found it hard to tell, however, whether its optimism was authentically sincere or bitterly ironic.It starts with a character simply known as The Woman walking on to a bare stage and announcing “I’ve come from the future to tell you that it’s going to be OK.” A good deal of time – too much, in fact – is spent reminding us that she is a performer and that we are members of an audience. Periodically, she exits and re-enters but the burden of her song remains the same: that we are wired to expect catastrophe. She even imagines a member of the audience shouting at her that “I would rather die today than in 10 years.” In an extraordinary final sequence, The Woman strips off, covers her naked body in soft clay and slime and lists some of the innovations that have helped to make human life more bearable.

The US policy shift on Israeli settlements will not stop Palestinians persevering | Raja Shehadeh
Surrounded by settlers and abandoned by the west, this latest setback will only strengthen support for the Palestinian causeThe day before US secretary of state Mike Pompeo’s announcement that the United States now considers the Israeli settlements in the West Bank to be legal, I accompanied an American group of writers on a tour of the settlements around Ramallah.It was organised by Breaking the Silence, a group formed by Israeli veterans who oppose the occupation. Yehuda Shaul, the co-founder of the organisation, led the tour. He said that, from 1967 on, the settlement project was state-driven, neither prompted nor led by the settlers. Since then, the US position had been that settlement building in the occupied territories was contrary to international law. And yet no material action has ever been taken by any US administration to force Israel to stop building – except for one moment, in 1991, when president George Bush refused to provide a guarantee for $10bn in loans to Israel over settlement expansion. So what is new about Trump’s announcement? Continue reading...

Nino Haratischvili: 'I never understood how Georgians could be proud of Stalin'
At 936 pages, The Eighth Life is the novelist’s first book to address her nation’s history. She explains why ‘the Georgian War and Peace’ is not yet complete“People are starting to realise that in return for the sovereignty they so desperately wanted, they’ll have to change their lifestyle,” says one character in Nino Haratischvili’s third and latest novel, The Eighth Life. You could be forgiven for believing this is a dig at Britain’s present moment. In fact, the year is 1991, the country, Georgia, and the scene, the turbulent aftermath of the dissolution of the Soviet Union. It was a time of civil war: Soviet loyalists and Georgian nationalists were at loggerheads over the direction of the country; uprisings in the Georgian territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia were being backed by Russia; the first leader of the newly independent Georgia was forced to flee. The rule of law had been all but abandoned: shootings in broad daylight and overnight queues for bread were everyday events.When Haratischvili set out to describe the Tbilisi of the 90s that she remembered from her childhood, she quickly discovered that she needed to address everything that had led the country to that point. “I didn’t plan to write such a huge story,” says Haratischvili, who moved to Germany in 2003 and has been living there since. But the resulting 936-page novel, so hefty that her English publishers gave all staff a day off to read it, goes much further back. It chronicles the story of one Georgian family from 1917 to the present day, time-stamped by the Russian Revolution, the second world war and the Prague Spring, and is full of Soviet trappings: white Ladas, Mishka Na Severe chocolates and Red Moscow perfume. Though it is narrated by Niza, a Georgian émigré living in Germany in 2006, it is not autobiographical; Haratischvili describes the novel as personal, an extension of a reality she experienced. The Eighth Life, taking a numerical figure that resembles an infinity sign for its title, is largely about the inescapable patterns of history. Continue reading...

La Belle Époque review – overegged French time-travel comedy
Daniel Auteuil is a man disillusioned with life and marriage who gets a chance to go back in time in this Charlie Kaufman-lite saccharine comedy-dramaHere is a madly overegged, over-sugared pudding of a film by the French writer-director Nicolas Bedos. It’s comedy-drama that is not funny enough to count as a comedy and not plausible enough to count as a drama. You’re going to need a very sweet tooth for it – sweeter than the one I have.Daniel Auteuil plays Victor, who is very depressed – a state that Auteuil knows well how to project. Victor is a once-famous children’s book illustrator and graphic novelist, now fallen on hard times and disenchanted with his life and with his stagnant marriage to psychotherapist Marianne (Fanny Ardant). She is having an affair with François (Denis Podalydès), the newspaper editor who fired Victor from his job as a cartoonist. But Victor has a possible saviour – a fan of his work called Antoine (Guillaume Canet) who makes a good living devising immersive theatrical experiences, private Truman Show-style rides for plutocrats who fancy going back to the late 19th century, or maybe a belle époque in their own youth.

Facebook banned white nationalists months ago. But prominent groups are still on the platform
Guardian analysis finds VDare and Red Ice TV among several outlets openly operating on Facebook, which has declined to take actionOn 7 November, Lana Lokteff, an American white nationalist, introduced a “thought criminal and political prisoner and friend” as a featured guest on her internet talk show, Red Ice TV. For about 90 minutes, Lokteff and her guest – Greg Johnson, a prominent white nationalist and editor-in-chief of the white nationalist publisher Counter-Currents – discussed Johnson’s recent arrest in Norway amid authorities’ concerns about his past expression of “respect” for the far-right mass murderer Anders Breivik.In 2012, Johnson wrote that he was angered by Breivik’s crimes because he feared they would harm the cause of white nationalism but had discovered a “strange new respect” for him during his trial; Breivik’s murder of 77 people has been cited as an inspiration by the suspected Christchurch killer, the man who murdered the British MP Jo Cox, and a US coast guard officer accused of plotting a white nationalist terror attack.

Dolly Parton once said, "When all else fails, I just do a boob joke." And that's precisely what she did when she came on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  Ever the storyteller, Parton asked if she could tell Fallon a story. The yarn that ensued was about a man who scammed her while she was out eating food with her family.  "We were in the restaurant, we were having our meal and this old man came over to our table," Parton began. After the man left, Parton went up to pay the bill and a man said, "Your grandpa left his bill here too."  "So that old man had come over and kind of scammed us," she added. Parton paid the man's bill but the story didn't end there. As she was walking down the street, she spotted the man and confronted him. But when she did so, he began hitting her on the chest with his walking stick.  Read more...More about The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Fallon, Dolly Parton, The Tonight Show, and Culture
