Spiderfly review – a tantalising tale of tangled relationships
Theatre 503, LondonWriter John Webber shows edgy promise with this story of a woman’s contrasting encounters with two men Like many emerging dramatists, John Webber is an actor. He doesn’t, however, simply write good parts but creates a tantalising whole. If his play relies on withheld information, it is not so much to trick us as to generate suspense and to suggest that some situations are incapable of easy resolution.The play comprises a series of encounters between Esther, a couples counsellor herself in need of help, and two men, both played by the same actor. One of the men, Keith, is a former Essex cab driver who is rough, tough and craves company: the other, Chris, is a seemingly charming, itinerant academic. Initially, one assumes that the divorced Esther has met both men through a dating agency, but that is only true of Chris. Continue reading...

Trump's tariffs will 'scorch' growth in 2020 and job losses are likely, says UBS
Ian Walton/Getty Images UBS says that Trump's trade war tariffs will "scorch" US growth in 2020. The Swiss bank's research department said that the tariffs already put in place this year will "likely lead" to a slowdown in the first half of next year. "The manufacturing sector is being hurt, with job growth decelerating," the bank said, adding that retail may likely be hit early in 2020, leading to job losses in the sector.

Sonic the Hedgehog returns with bigger eyes and fewer teeth in new trailer
The first trailer for the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie arrived earlier this year, and was immediately met with criticism over Sonic’s appearance. The widespread backlash to the CGI character actually forced the movie to be delayed so the team could fix Sonic. Paramount Pictures has now released a new trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sonic looks a lot better. The biggest visual change is Sonic’s eyes are a lot bigger, and the CGI body is far less elongated. Even Sonic’s teeth, that briefly make an appearance, don’t look like a full creepy set of human teeth anymore. Sonic just looks smaller and cuter, just like you’d expect from a CGI version of the Japanese video game star. Old Sonic vs. new Sonic Sonic’s... Continue reading…

Would Southgate leave out his best player for a big World Cup match?
England’s manager has handled the Raheem Sterling incident well but cynics might argue it was an easy step for this fixtureGareth Southgate and England have just dealt with a modern problem in a pleasingly modern way. Over the course of 999 previous internationals it stretches credulity to imagine nothing like the contretemps between Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez has been seen before, but the vast majority of England get-togethers took place in eras when it was perfectly possible and reasonable to hush things up and keep any small-scale disturbances in house.These days that is not so easy, and before social media could have a field day with speculation and jigsaw identification England fronted up and laid the matter to rest. Southgate’s statement that emotions from the Liverpool v Manchester City game on Sunday were still too raw was rational and understandable, and subsequently Sterling issued an apology and accepted his share of the blame.

The Spin | Richard Hadlee put brilliance above bravado in one of the greatest careers
The New Zealand all-rounder had no time for posturing or histrionics, but stood alone as a master of the seamer’s craftThese days, everything has to be arranged and everything has to be ranked, particularly in sport. This is not all bad – in different times, Justin Langer might never have taught us the importance of “elite professionalism, elite learning, elite mateship and elite humility” – but for that, there is a quid pro quo. Naturally, much of the blame for this moral slippage lies with the Indian Premier League, as a result of whose draft enemies become friends and post-match patter turns into performative cliché. Whatever happened to good, honest, old-fashioned aloofness?Richard Hadlee – star of New Zealand-England series past – epitomised such virtue, solely consumed by hitting the red thing with the wooden thing and chucking the red thing at the wooden things.

Talking Horses: could April 2020 see the end of a 25-year racing duopoly?
Brian Hughes is top-priced at 2-1 to become the National Hunt champion jockey and end the rule of McCoy and JohnsonIt is almost a quarter of a century since National Hunt’s champion jockey was someone other than Tony McCoy or Richard Johnson. In truth, it’s pretty much that long since anyone else was even a credible contender, as Johnson was the only rival within hailing distance in most of the 20 seasons in which McCoy had an iron grip on the title.But could April 2020 be the month when a new name finally emerges? The betting markets seem to think so. Brian Hughes was a 7-2 chance for the title on Monday morning but less than 24 hours later – and after both had registered a single winner on the Monday cards – he is top-priced at 2-1. That is, on the face of it, some shift in such a short space of time when the season is seven months old and has five more to run. Continue reading...

Video game adaptation seeks to quell furore generated by initial trailer which disappointed fansA new trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has been released, after the film’s director assured fans of the game that the character would be redesigned after a tide of criticism greeted the first release.The initial trailer was released in April, featuring star Jim Carrey as Dr Eggman alongside the CGI-animated hedgehog, but was met with considerable derision. The Guardian’s Keith Stuart described it as “a 200mph slap in the face” and said the central character “resembles a cheap knock-off Sonic toy your child might win at a fairground stand and then be terrified of”.

Established by the Obama administration in 2012, Daca has provided renewable two-year work permits and temporary relief from deportation for young immigrants who moved to the United States as children. To date, Daca has provided more than 800,000 young people opportunities to pursue their dreams and reach their full potential.
