Britney Spears speaks at last: will her day in court upend all we thought we knew?
The singer will today make a bid to take back control of her life. After a glut of speculative documentaries and conspiracy theories, her own voice can finally be heardBritney Spears never used to be an enigma. In the early years of her career, she did interviews for print, TV and radio. She held press conferences and endured day-long junkets. She shot behind the scenes videos, documentaries, TV specials. Britney was candid and trusting. “I’m from the south,” she told the Observer in 2001, “so I’m a very open person and I’ve had to teach myself not to open up to too many people.”These days however, if Britney interviews are granted, they are conducted under such strict terms that few publications have bothered. Even the radio and TV appearances when she has a record to sell are strictly surface level. Her music gives few clues to her state of mind. Her last four albums offer up sexy party tunes that don’t reflect the artist’s lived reality: now 39, by her own account she doesn’t drink, keeps a small circle of friends, only went out clubbing twice in the four years she spent in residence in Las Vegas, and prior to meeting current boyfriend Sam Asghari in 2016, was “over” dating.

Democrats seek way ahead after voting rights bill hits Senate roadblock
The White House warned democracy was ‘in peril’ but while key Democrats stay committed to the filibuster, progress looks difficultAfter nearly six months of watching Republicans relentlessly make it harder to vote in the US, Democrats suffered a major blow on Tuesday after GOP senators used a legislative maneuver to halt a sweeping voting rights and ethics bill.The vote doesn’t kill the bill, but it marks one of the most significant setbacks for Democrats in Joe Biden’s presidency so far. Democrats heralded the legislation as their No 1 priority, even knowing they were unlikely to get any Republican votes for it. The bill would amount to the most significant expansion of the right to vote in a generation, requiring early voting and automatic and same-day registration, while prohibiting excessive manipulation of electoral district boundaries, a process often called gerrymandering.

Beyoncé’s 4 at 10: the album that set the stage for her cultural domination

It was the final stop on her I Am … World Tour. A few months earlier, she had cancelled two subsequent dates without explanation. If she regretted it, it didn’t show.A year later, in the documentary short Year of 4, she explained her decision. “After I finished the last tour, I was a bit overwhelmed and overworked. And my mother was the person that preached to me, and almost harassed me every day … ‘You really need to live your life and open your eyes, and you don’t want to wake up with no memories.’” Continue reading...

Endangered Species review – bizarrely perky safari thriller deserves a mauling
The serious anti-poaching message of this savanna-set family drama gets lost in the comic register of a US sitcomThe days of Africa-set films featuring white protagonists using glowing savannas as set dressing for first-world problems seemed to be numbered, but hold on: here is a fist-bitingly self-regarding family drama with Philip Winchester and X-Men’s Rebecca Romijn as Jack and Lauren Halsey, a seemingly dream couple off on a dream safari with son Noah and daughter Zoe, and her pothead boyfriend Billy. “Penny for them,” Lauren actually says to Jack, as they are Cessna-ing in. What is on this buff oilman’s mind, though, is that he has just been put on extended leave following an industrial accident.His secret soon spills too, and Jack is so desperate to please his wife that he ignores safari-park protocol and lets them get too close to the fauna: a female rhinoceros and calf. “Wait, we shouldn’t be getting between them, right?” says Billy, a brief lapse into sensible ideas. One upended van later, with Jack’s leg gored, no mobile phone reception or water, and diabetic Lauren’s insulin levels running on empty, the Halseys find themselves in a world of hurt.

Mike Schultz obituary
My friend Mike Schultz, who has died aged 64 after suffering a heart attack, was a social scientist working in policy application and evaluation in the field of international development. He had a particular interest in forest peoples, having lived with and studied a tribe in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) in the 1980s. Mike was born in Surrey and grew up in the village of Stanton St John, near Oxford, the second of four children of June (nee Mattheson), a research scientist, and Donald Schultz, a professor of engineering. At Magdalen College school in Oxford, where he and I first met, Mike did well academically and was active in sports, music and drama. After his A-levels he had two gap years, much of which he spent travelling, then went to King’s College, Cambridge, to study social anthropology, graduating in 1980. Continue reading...

Little left to chance in carefully-curated Geneva summit
Meeting goes as well as could be expected as Biden and Putin speak language of diplomacy – but hardly one of affectionJoe Biden and Vladimir Putin hadn’t even sat down before tensions boiled over at the 18th-century Villa La Grange, a fine Swiss manor house besieged on Wednesday by a 21st-century press pool. The two men looked cordial enough as they shook hands for the first time as leaders. But the sun-struck journalists behind them pushed and shouted, some knocked to the floor, as they fought to get in to the leaders’ only joint appearance of the day.“The media scuffle was the most chaotic your pooler has seen at a presidential event in nine years,” wrote a US reporter from inside the melee, which erupted as the press pack tried to follow the two leaders into the villa. “Russian security yelled at journalists to get out and began pushing journalists. Journalists and White House officials screamed back that the Russian security should stop touching us.” Continue reading...

Five things we learned from the Biden-Putin summit in Geneva
Cool normality helped exorcise ghost of 2018’s disastrous Helsinki summit but what else was achieved?1) The weird and unpredictable Trump era is over. In 2018 Donald Trump held a disastrous summit with Putin in the Finnish capital Helsinki. The then US president said he believed Putin’s assurances that Moscow did not interfere in the 2016 US election with a joint press conference that was so humiliating for America that Trump’s senior adviser Fiona Hill considered bringing it to a close by whacking a fire alarm or faking a medical emergency.In Geneva, by contrast, cool normality was on display. Biden was well prepared for the US-Russia summit. He cut a relaxed figure, telling Putin he wanted a “predictable” relationship after a period defined by rogue Kremlin behaviour. The summit flowed along conventional diplomatic lines: a handshake, several hours of intensive talks and separate press conferences afterwards. The ghost of Helsinki was exorcised. There will be an agreed record of what was discussed, unlike in 2018 when Trump met Putin alone, without aides or even Trump’s own interpreter. We don’t know what was said. Continue reading...

An RSS document is also known as a feed or a web feed. In this off page SEO technique, the same article is submitted to several article directories for publication.
RSS feed is an XML file that contains your site's information in the form of URLs. It is displayed in the form of a summarized text to the users. You can subscribe to an RSS feed by entering the URL of the feed into the feed reader and providing the required details. So, this information is automatically submitted and updated and you are not required to manually add your pages. For example, receiving reports and news updates as the events occur on a mobile phone while doing something else.
