The mystery of Jamal Khashoggi

Today 03:19 GMT

It began with a mysterious disappearance: Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi Arabian citizen and U.S. resident, went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, 12 days ago.

Is this the real life Why ‘official’ biopics skip the scandal and keep it safe

Today 10:51 GMT

It’s a trade-off: we know we’re never getting the whole truth with music biopics, but it’s good to know whose truth we are getting.

While that might look tasteless today (even if the party in question is well documented), there is an impression that the film will seek to put a slant on Mercury’s life, since it is co-produced by his Queen bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor. If the new Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody doesn’t include at least one party scene featuring dwarves with platters of cocaine on their heads, I am asking for my money back.

Gaslighting: is an apology necessary to heal after you’ve been abused?

Today 10:51 GMT

I’m not sure an apology for gaslighting has any real traction because an apology is only significant if the person apologizing has the ability to recognize they have done something wrong.

When I wrote a memoir in 2016 about chronic gaslighting at the hands of my mother and its lingering effects, I was frequently asked to explain what the term meant. I wrote about it in 2017, and in the years since, I’ve heard from hundreds of people who have shared their stories of having been on the receiving end of such psychological manipulation.

Merkel's sister conservatives battered in Bavaria, Greens gain big

Today 07:00 GMT

Analysis will begin about what Sunday's result means for the CSU's much larger conservative sister party, the CDU, and its chairwoman, Chancellor Angela Merkel.

One trend evident from Sunday's results is that the smaller parties continue to eat away at the support for Merkel's conservatives and their national coalition partners, the Social Democrats. The latest polls suggest that the CDU could struggle to break 30 percent in that vote.

What happened at Studio 54 is still an "embarrassment" for co-founder Ian Schrager

Saturday 17:15 GMT

It started at the door, where crowds were kept behind a velvet rope and doormen lifted it only for the famous, the outrageous, the beautiful and the unusual.

Agents uncovered the club's financial records, which included "payouts" for drugs and, as prosecutor Peter Sudler recalls in the film, one column that was labeled "skim." "So that you had a daily record of everything that they took in and what they took out as skim and didn't report," Sudler said.
