Jay-Z review – the king of rap bares soul on wracked confessionals

Monday 06:04 GMT

Roll on day 2! #jayz #vfest2017. The hits attest to the strength and consistency of the Jay-Z catalogue, but 4:44 can’t help but feel like a turning point – finding its strength in vulnerability, swapping swagger for introspection.

Tonight, he walks onto a sparsely decorated stage – just lights and a 40-foot tall metallic Jeff Koons inflatable dog, appropriately for the man who once rapped “Jeff Koons balloons / I just wanna blow up” – with hood pulled over his baseball cap, face hidden, launching into a five-track blitz from his latest album, the dark, often brilliant 4:44.

Monday 06:04 GMT

It was the Anna Risch he got to know two years later — the one whose suicidal thoughts had put her into a hospital — whom he fell in love with.

Before Ms. Risch’s descent into depression, she was a romantic spitfire in the habit of keeping boyfriends no longer than what Mr. Sutter called a nine-month “limerence phase.” (Limerence, for those not as fluent in psychological terminology as Mr. Sutter, means a state of mind resulting from romantic attraction, characterized by euphoria.)

The only 4 spaghetti recipes you'll ever need

Monday 06:04 GMT

Start cooking 500g of spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water, and slice your chilli (around a tablespoonful, or more if you prefer) and around 4 cloves of garlic about a millimetre thick.

Toss the pasta really well through the oil, garlic and chilli, adding a little more cooking water from the pasta if it is too dry, as you want the garlicky hot oil to really cling to the spaghetti, and serve straight away.

The Once and Future Liberal reviews: identity and the American body politic

Monday 11:45 GMT

“Liberals should bear in mind that the first identity movement in American politics was the Ku Klux Klan,” he wrote, adding: “Those who play the identity game should be prepared to lose it.”

Like so many other straight white male academics of a certain age, he is preoccupied with the excesses of political correctness on American campuses today. Unfortunately, he also resembles his colleagues in his inability to peer over ivy-covered walls to give us an accurate vision of the world beyond his classroom.

New outfielder Curtis Granderson finds a role in Dodgers' 3-0 victory over Tigers

Sunday 23:40 GMT

“This team has their makeup, their identity, what it is,” Granderson said before scoring the go-ahead run in the Dodgers’ 3-0 interleague victory over Detroit. “I’m just trying to come in and be a part of it.”

Granderson handled center field in 58 games for the Mets this season, but the Dodgers view him primarily as a left fielder. Andre Ethier is still expected to compete to earn a role as a pinch-hitter when he makes his 2017 debut in September, Roberts said.

Why Los Angeles is still a segregated city after all these years

Monday 11:45 GMT

The 2010 census data show that 60% of Los Angeles’s African Americans live in neighborhoods where few whites are present.

During World War II, more than 10,000 African American families moved to Los Angeles for jobs in military production, and government-mandated segregation moved west. Desperate for labor, companies were hiring black workers for the first time, yet unless these migrants could find housing, war mobilization would stall.
