Wednesday 17:16 GMT

For drinkers overseas, a diminishing supply of craft whiskey alongside dramatically raised prices for staple American whiskey brands has resulted.

NRA's Dana Loesch rips CNN's award win for town hall where she was heckled

Wednesday 17:16 GMT

Nationally syndicated radio show host and National Rifle Association (NRA) spokeswoman Dana Loesch slammed the decision to honor CNN with an award for a televised town hall in which she was heckled, days after the mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school last year.

Sheriff Israel, who spent much of his time attacking the NRA, was suspended earlier this year by Gov. Ron DeSantis for his office’s mishandling of the shooting and for overlooking several red flags that might have prevented the shooter from obtaining a gun.

How a toxic ‘fight club’ of internet trolls enabled the New Zealand mosque shooting

Sunday 12:38 GMT

The New Zealand mosque shooting may have played out live on Facebook, but it was born out of 8chan, one of the self-described “darkest reaches” of the internet where uncensored racism, misogyny and conspiracy theories have encouraged multiple mass killers.

While police ultimately arrested the suspected gunman, they may never be able to take down the trans-national network of trolls that enabled him on sites like 8chan.

Dr Alien, PhD: the horror classic that academia loves

Today 06:03 GMT

Today it is recognised as a classic, thanks mainly to a number of extraordinarily powerful scenes: the alien – which is only ever seen in glimpses – stalking characters through Nostromo’s dimly lit ventilation shafts; the sight of the character Kane, played by John Hurt, squirming on a table as an alien foetus with teeth and a tentacle erupts from his stomach; and the final battle between Ellen Ripley (Weaver) and the marauding, acid-dripping extra-terrestrial.

Today 09:54 GMT

Walker first came to fame in the mid-1960s in the group the Walker Brothers, before creating a string of acclaimed solo albums – Scott I to Scott IV – that are regarded as some of the most adventurous and boundary-pushing pop albums of the era.

Walker went solo, and continued to make symphonic 1960s pop, albeit with an epic, psychedelic, high-minded tone – The Seventh Seal, from Scott 4, reflected on the existential fantasies in Ingmar Bergman’s film of the same name.

Rock enigma Scott Walker dies aged 76

Today 09:54 GMT

Born Noel Scott Engel in Ohio, 1944, Walker initially pursued a career as an actor, before hooking up with John Maus and Gary Leeds to form the misleadingly-named Walker Brothers.

After a brief, largely unsuccessful reunion with the Walker Brothers in the mid 1970s, Walker bowed out of music for a decade after the release of 1984's critically-acclaimed Climate of Hunter album. "He took music to a place that it hasn't actually ever been since," said Brian Eno, who counts Walker as a key influence.
