Golf Digest's Jerry Tarde: Lee Elder as an Honorary Starter at the Masters

GOLF DIGEST EDITOR-IN-CHIEF JERRY TARDE wrote about being inspired by honorary starters at the Masters, beginning with Jock Hutchison. It was 1976. Tarde was a college student. He drove his Gremlin to a nursing home in suburban Chicago to meet the 1921 British Open champion. Hutchison and Fred McLeod were the original honorary starters at the Masters. Lee Elder won the 1974 Monsanto Open. Now Tarde has a new inspiration:I expect to be inspired again this year, when the Masters is playe...

Weekend reading: Corona-crisis, round two

What caught my eye this week. T he US may be about to see another surge in Covid-19 deaths. This is clearly tragic from a human perspective. We might also wonder what it will do to the market. I’ve been pretty relaxed about the UK’s de-lockdown. Daily cases have steadily fallen, contrary to – soon forgotten – warnings at every stage that we were moving too fast. Indeed it was probably only around 4 July that we went much past where I’d have set the limits for the actual lockdown! Albeit partly...

British high street reeling as another 5,000 jobs go

Health and beauty chain Boots, owned by Walgreens Boots Alliance , said it would cut 4,000 jobs and close 48 optician stores after shopper numbers plunged 85% in April at the height of the coronavirus lockdown. John Lewis, middle England's favourite department store, said it would close eight stores and lose a possible 1,300 jobs after it predicted that online sales would make up to 70% of its total sales this year and next, from 40% prior to the crisis. "Closing a shop is always incredibly d...

PRESS DIGEST- Financial Times - July 10

Britain's data watchdog and its Australian counterpart said on Thursday that they have launched a joint probe into controversial facial recognition company Clearview AI, whose image-scraping tool has been used by hundreds of police forces around the world. British energy regulator Ofgem has been warned it faces a "huge fight" after proposing to halve returns large companies such as National Grid and SSE are allowed to make in exchange for managing the country's electricity and gas net...

‘Showbiz Kids’ director Alex Winter interviews former child stars about trials and traumas of the business

The idea of making a documentary about child entertainers was something director Alex Winter says he thought about often but always set aside over the past decade. “I came up as a child actor,” he says by phone from his South Pasadena home recently. “I’ve worked with a lot of child actors as a director over the years. And it occurred to me that I had never really seen the story told, in an intimate way, from the subjects themselves. “Especially in a non-tabloid way, where it’s really a more expa...

When Tom Hanks needed a director for his WWII naval drama ‘Greyhound,’ Aaron Schneider got the call

Aaron Schneider was working as a cinematographer but wanted to become a director.  He started by winning an Oscar in 2003 for his short film, “ Two Soldiers .” But it took six years before his feature debut, “ Get Low” — and another 11 years before his second. But it’s a good one: He returns at the helm for “ Greyhound,” a World War II drama written by and starring Tom Hanks.  Hanks plays a navy officer on his first mission as captain; his destroyer must escort an Allied convoy ...

Charlotte Tilbury Love Filter Matte Revolution Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Wedding Belles Charlotte Tilbury Wedding Belles Matte Revolution Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with strong, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had opaque pigmentation, while the consistency felt lightweight, thin, and velvety, rather than traditionally emollient–more of a smooth glide than slipperiness–that applied evenly. I had a bit of product that separated along my deeper lip lines, which beca...

Move to rename 'Bloody Sunday' bridge has critics in Selma

Thousands gathered in this river city in 1940 to dedicate a new bridge in honour of white supremacist Edmund Pettus, a Confederate general and reputed Ku Klux Klan leader. Just 25 years later, the bridge became a global landmark when civil rights marchers were beaten at its base. Today, with thousands protesting nationwide against racial injustice, a years-old push is gaining steam to rename the Edmund Pettus Bridge in honour of Rep. John Lewis, who led the 1965 marchers on “Bloody Sunday.”

John Lewis has always been fighting for civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. He's been doing it for over 60 years so to say that his narrative is relevant more now than ever is a wild understatement.

'John Lewis: Good Trouble' highlights the civil rights icon's remarkable life

"John Lewis: Good Trouble" derives its title from a favorite saying of the civil-rights icon and longtime congressman, but "Being John Lewis" -- and witnessing the effect he has on those who meet him -- might be equally apt. A fitting if slightly disjointed tribute, the CNN Films documentary is somehow both timely and timeless in honoring a man who has spent his entire adult life in the public arena.

‘John Lewis: Good Trouble’ documents the life of an American hero

Like any documentary, “John Lewis: Good Trouble” inevitably looks at events that have passed. But in this new documentary on the life and career of the 80-year-old civil rights leader and longtime congressman from Georgia, it’s impossible to keep the present out of the frame.
