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.

Moguls and starlets: 100 years of Hollywood’s corrosive, systemic sexism

From the earliest days of Hollywood, women were staged managed and manipulated by older men in powerful positions. And it’s clear that, although Harvey Weinstein has been outed, little has changed

In the Hollywood dream factory, trauma surfaces as light entertainment. In 2013, introducing the list of best supporting actress nominees at a pre-Oscars event, comedian Seth MacFarlane quipped: “Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein.” What was chilling about this was not just that MacFarlane followed it up at the Oscars with a stream of “edgy” jokes, including the line that nine-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis had “16 years before she’s too old for Clooney” and the nauseating We Saw Your Boobs song. What is really disturbing is that everyone – even people who had no idea of what has now emerged about Weinstein’s behaviour – got the joke. The idea that female stars and aspiring stars are required to accept the attentions, at the very least, of older male studio executives and producers, is as old as the Hollywood hills.

The Fiver | Secret tiny mystery performance-boosting miracle mystery things

In today’s Fiver: Leo Messi, that Coventry fan and urination-like fountains

A couple of years ago the Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch volunteered to coach some kids near his home. Midway through the session he must have felt a hunger pang, because he bent over, reached into his sock, pulled out some fried chicken he’d stored there, and chowed down. “My auntie fried up some chicken and I had my hands full, and I don’t have no pockets on my shorts, so I just had to use what I had,” he explained. The problem wasn’t so much that he ate chicken during a training session – though that was a little unusual – but that humans, prone as they are to storing food in fridges and cupboards, consider socks to be an unconventional larder, particularly if they are being worn at the time.

Merkel raises hopes of Brexit talks being able to move on to trade in December - Politics live

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen

Donald Tusk, president of the European council, told reporters that he did not expect a breakthrough on Brexit at this summit and that they would have to work “really hard” to get to the position where they could move talks on to phase two in December. He said:

I don’t expect any kind of breakthrough ...

We have to work really hard between October and December to finalise this so-called first phase.

I have never seen 20 billion peanuts in my life.

This is from the Lithuanian president, Dalia Grybauskaitė. She is referring to the venue for the summit having to be switched because of toxic kitchen fumes.

Lessons from #EUCO kitchen: fuming over #Brexit must not become toxic.

Red Star Belgrade v Arsenal: Europa League – live!

Hello. What have Red Star Belgrade got that Arsenal don’t have? A European Cup. That’s right, kids, they were quite the force back in the day. But those were different times, probably never to be repeated. At least they have the memories of that European Cup win in 1991, though. What Arsenal would give to experience something like that under Arsene Wenger in Europe. Let’s face it, there’s more chance of Jose Mourinho flirting with Red Star than of Wenger winning the Champions League, but it could be a different story in the Europa League.

Like their opponents here, Arsenal are coming to terms with some of their old lustre, but they are having fun in Europe’s second tier competition. They’ve started well in Group H, seeing off the invasion of FC Koln in their opener and winning handsomely away to Bate Borisov last time out, and they could go five points clear of their opponents this evening. They’ll want to watch out, mind you. Wenger’s reserves are likely to encounter a fearsome atmosphere at the Marakana, they’ve already struggled a few times away from home this season and, most worrying of all, Troy Deeney reckons they don’t have any cojones. Deeney even pronounced it like a Spaniard, so he definitely knew what he was on about.

Dogs have pet facial expressions to use on humans, study finds

Showing tongues and puppy eyes, and facial movement in general, was more likely when scientists faced the animals, suggesting conscious communication

Dogs really do turn on the puppy eyes when humans look at them, according to researchers studying canine facial expressions.

Scientists have discovered that dogs produce more facial movements when a human is paying attention to them – including raising their eyebrows, making their eyes appear bigger – than when they are being ignored or presented with a tasty morsel.
