For Zak Vyner, Sunday's final day of the Championship season will be a storm of emotions; it will be his final farewell to the players, fans and manager of Rotherham who have embraced him as one of their own and had a profound effect on his career but, most importantly, a chance to do his mates at Bristol City a huge favour. Such are the perculiarities of the loan system, Vyner will line up for the Millers against Middlesbrough knowing if they can restrict them to a draw or, even better, claim victory, it will give his parent club the opportunity to claim sixth, providing they beat Hull City and Derby also lose at West Brom. Rotherham's relegation was confirmed last weekend as they lost 2-1 at the Hawthorns but there remains a deep sense of pride at what has happened this season and Vyner has reassured everyone connected to Bristol City, he and his teammates want to put on a performance at the New York Stadium. "Even before we knew of the extra significance for me, even though … [Read more...] about Zak Vyner makes promise to his Bristol City teammates

“Nothing is more modern than antiquity,” said the late, great Karl Lagerfeld, the creative genius behind Chanel and Fendi. Architectures, his first and last collection of functional sculptures, crafted in Nero Marquina and Arabescato Fantastico marble, is an expression of the fashion titan’s signature monochromania in a series of lamps, consoles and mirrors (from €22,000) featuring delicate fluted columns with elegant capitals. “I’m inspired by the perfect proportions of Greek columns. They truly are the standards for beauty,” he declared on unveiling the collection.

Grant Suneson and Charles Stockdale 24/7 Wall Street Published 7:09 AM EDT Mar 25, 2019 As the world increasingly relies on advanced technology – in computing, manufacturing, health care, and more – science and technology are becoming inextricably linked in the U.S. job market. More and more, the jobs with better pay and job security are in STEM – science, technology, engineering, and math – fields.

Advocates of what passes for the hard left in the US celebrated, arguing their ideas were finally gaining momentum. A writer for the conservative National Review, David Boaz, pronounced the results "frightening". Credit it to a reaction against Donald Trump's presidency, a hangover from the Great Recession or a slower accumulation of myriad frustrations - but the American left is enjoying its most vibrant moment in living memory. The evidence can be seen in the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential field, too. Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont and a self-described Democratic socialist, is one of the two leading candidates, snapping at the heels of former vice president Joe Biden in most opinion polls. (Biden had not declared his candidacy at the time of writing, though he is expected to do so soon.) Sanders had been a fringe figure in American politics until he stunned the establishment in 2016 by mounting a competitive challenge to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic … [Read more...] about Code Red: Is AOC the new face of US politics or a step too far to the left?
