Hillary and Chelsea Clinton: We cannot give in. Thats how they win

Losing the 2016 US election was devastating, but Clinton is keeping up the fight. Mother and daughter talk about authoritarianism, inspiring women and why thrillers are the perfect escape If there is a prevailing message in Hillary and Chelsea Clintons The Book of Gutsy Women albeit perhaps not precisely the one they meant it is that making change for women and girls is painful, tough, and requires almost inhuman reserves of personal grit. The volume is a collection of mini-biographies of gutsy women, and its intended mood, I surmise, is upbeat and inspirational. The subjects range from the learned 17th-century Mexican nun Suor Juana de la Cruz to the bracingly named Cherokee politician Barbara Mankiller. But behind the celebratory gloss …

Tsitsipas rallies past Thiem to become youngest debut ATP FInals winner in 41 years

London (CNN)Stefanos Tsitsipas said he would love to have the fan base of Roger Federer one day. That would take some doing.

Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionExplained: What is nitrous oxide – or ‘nos’?

Genesis, Revelation Exodus: has Guardiola reached City endgame? | Barney Ronay

Pep Guardiola is generally in one of three phases of engagement it is tempting to conclude we are in this third stage now, that the Pep exodus has begun This is the end, beautiful friend. Or rather, it may just be a vision of it. Watching Pep Guardiola capering on the Anfield touchline on Sunday skinny legs splayed, arms flailing, black quilted jacket bouncing about like an angry rubber ball was at least confirmation of one thing. Manchester Citys manager remains an extraordinarily agile and sprightly 48-year-old footballing obsessive. Beyond that it was hard to interpret this reaction to a third Premier League defeat as a sign of good health, stability and plans for the future falling neatly into place. …

Michael Bennett says he’s standing for the National Anthem because his Cowboys teammates asked him to

(CNN)Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Michael Bennett has started standing for the National Anthem again after almost four years — but he insists it’s not because of a rumored deal with team owner Jerry Jones. Bennett said he is doing it for the team, but it doesn’t mean he’ll stop fighting for social justice and equality for people of color. “I am a black man,” Bennett said. “I have always said that. I have always stood on what I have believed in every single situation whether it’s with Donald Trump, whether it was with the police, whether it was with police brutality, how women of color have been treated, how much money I have donated to different things, the causes I …

Katie’s week: Chinese medicine, bike frames, pigeon food and stew Image copyright Katie Holden I top up my mobile with £10 today, sending my balance rocketing to a whopping £11.36.

Premier League 2019-20: team of the season so far

Liverpools full-backs, the beating hearts of Chelsea and Sheffield United and an evergreen striker feature in our leading XI Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester) The biggest compliment that can be paid to the Leicester goalkeeper is that he has gone unnoticed this season. The 33-year-old has kept goal with quiet authority as Leicesters defence has become the stingiest in the league, conceding only eight times. Ederson might have been a more obvious choice but the Brazilian has not been as assured for Manchester City this season. Schmeichel has been error-free and solid with his distribution. An honourable mention should go to Ben Foster who has made some wonderful stops while being overworked at Watford. Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) He entered the Guinness Book …

Gymnastics deaths are rare, but previous disasters have prompted safety changes

(CNN)In this sport, a minor miscalculation can mean the difference between victory and catastrophe. The Thomas salto — first performed by American Kurt Thomas — involved leaping into the air and performing 1 1/2 flips and 1 1/2 twists. But instead of landing on their feet, gymnasts landed upside down, rolling forward on the backs of their shoulders. In 1980, Soviet gymnast Elena Mukhina was attempting a Thomas salto when she broke her neck and became paralyzed. The move has since been banned for both men and women in international competition. More recently, the debate over dangerous skills emerged this year when Olympic champion Simone Biles introduced a double-double dismount off the balance beam. The double-double means a double backflip …

It’s good Don Cherry is gone. It’ll be better if his successor represents today’s Canada

The problematic pundits sacking was long overdue. Nows the time for Rogers Media to replace him with a truer reflection of Canadas wonderfully diverse hockey scene Every Saturday night for the last 37 hockey seasons, Canadians have been subjected to a segment called Coachs Corner featuring belligerent former NHL coach Don Cherry, whos been accompanied by the more pacific Ron MacLean since 1986. Ron and Don have been mainstays of the flagship Hockey Night in Canada program for a very long time. There has been little effort to change their good cop-bad cop style of commentary, except for a short stint by the incomparable George Stroumboulopoulos which, at the time, gave me hope. That hope directed at Francophones, newcomers, women, …
