I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.
The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.
Thu, 13 Apr 2017 05:00:27 -0500 Six Things You Want to Know About Meatloaf Frank Bruni, a Times Op-Ed columnist, and Jennifer Steinhauer, a congressional correspondent, wrote a meatloaf cookbook. Here they reflect on the dish.
Brendan Rodgers speaks! “It will be a tough game. We expect they will change their system and play with a diamond, so that will be interesting. But we come into this with confidence, although we will have to work hard. Leigh Griffiths is a terrific player and a terrific goalscorer, he’s always going to be a threat. Scott Brown is the most influential player in Scotland, he wants the ball, and is a great catalyst for the team. It’s a plus to have him.” Brown is of course only playing today because the SFA rescinded his red card for clattering into Liam Boyle of Ross County the other week. If the pre-match chat from both of the managers is anything to go by, expect the influential Celtic captain to be in the thick of it again today. Although did we need any pre-match chat to tell us that?
Pedro Caixinha speaks! “You want to know the formation? I can tell you! We are going in a 4-3-1-2 in order to retain the build-up. Especially in the division play, which is going to be Scott Brown, they’re going with the same team. We want to be more aggressive and explore more spaces, created with our pressure and also when we have the ball. This is Ibrox, and we need to do much more to win the game!”
Donald Trump has condemned North Korea for “disrespecting the wishes of China” after Pyongyang test-fired a ballistic missile despite rising tensions in the region.
The unsuccessful test comes as the United States pushed for tougher sanctions to curb the country’s nuclear threat. Writing on Twitter, the US president said Pyongyang had defied Chinese president Xi Jinping by going ahead with the launch.
Though many of us agreed with Brenda from Bristol about this general election (“You’re joking. Not another one”), it actually offers a great opportunity for change – regardless of which party wins.
That’s because now the snap election has been called, the normal rules for selecting party candidates no longer apply. Under these rules, constituency parties select a long list of candidates, then a short list; then local party members vote for their preferred candidate.
Shadow chancellor says he cannot pre-empt Labour manifesto but signals opposition to rises and says party should rule out mansion tax
John McDonnell has signalled that Labour’s manifesto will pledge no VAT or national insurance rise, and has said he will argue the party should rule out reviving Ed Miliband’s mansion tax policy.
Speaking to the Guardian, the shadow chancellor said he could not pre-empt the party’s manifesto, which is agreed through its national executive committee and policy forum, but suggested he would make the case to rule out national insurance rises and any hike to VAT.
