She showed off her flat tum wearing a bra top and baggy boyfriend jeans. Pete was a little more low key and hid his face under a scarf. Comic Pete Davidson, who has moved in with the Bang Bang singer, confirmed the engagement on The Tonight Show during a sweary chat with host Jimmy Fallon. He said he felt like he had "won a contest" when Ariana, 24, said "yes". When Jimmy said to him last night: "Now, you know, that you didn't have to get engaged to Ariana Grande to come on our show."

A woman from Downham whose animation business has centres in New York City and London has opened her third office in her home town.Kymberlee Jay, who founded DoodleDirect, started the business at her dining room table from her home in Downham whilst on maternity leave four years ago.Bringing her quarter-of-a-million-pound animation company to the region was not a decision Kymberlee took lightly, but, in her volunteer role as a chair of trustees at the Swan Centre, she has seen first-hand what bringing opportunities to the region can do both for the economy and the community.“I’ve lived in Downham Market for many years, I’m an active part of the business community and am a strong advocate for developing opportunities when youare in a position to do so,” she said.“As the business grew, we felt a need to have a base in London, as our reputation has developed, it’s become clear to me that it’s the quality of our work, not our proximity to the … [Read more...] about New York City, London… and Downham Market as new office launched
Journalism is (mostly) fun to do. But it’s never been that much fun to watch, even in the days before it became so desk-bound – which is why movies about it always come with unlikely scenes in which nervous hacks meet shifty contacts on park benches. I began my working life in a fractious and slightly terrifying pre-internet newsroom, where the phones rang all day long and people still smoked at their desks, and honestly, hours could go by without anyone so much as shouting. Most days, the best you could hope for was that the editor would be moved to run, rather than to walk, in the direction of the back bench, page proof in hand. No doubt some people will find Liz Garbus’s four-part documentary series about the New York Times and its efforts to report on Donald Trump quite exciting (9pm, 24 June). But I could not love newspapers more if I tried, and it struck me only as mildly interesting. It’s not just that it’s hard to thrill to the sight of a headline … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlight I love newspapers: so why was I bored by Inside the New York Times: the Fourth Estate?
James Walton 30 June 2018 9:00 AM 30 June 2018 9:00 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Back when his country was controlled by the USSR, the Czech writer Milan Kundera pointed out that ‘Union of Soviet Socialist Republics’ was ‘four words, four lies’. It’s a strike rate that even the current US president has yet to match. Nonetheless, at one stage in Reporting Trump’s First Year: The Fourth Estate (BBC2, Sunday) we did see him pull off an impressive three-sentences, three-lies sequence in a speech about — inevitably — the mainstream media, including the New York Times. ‘They have no “sources”,’ said Trump baldly. ‘They just make ’em up. They are the enemy of the people.’ Not that Trump will care, but by then we already knew how scrupulously the paper in question goes about its reporting. The New York Times has given the makers of this new documentary … [Read more...] about Fury and excitement – how the journalists at the New York Times have coped with Trump
The big story from Tuesday’s primaries was the surprise defeat of a veteran member of Congress from New York by an unknown challenger. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old activist and first-time candidate, defeated Joe Crowley and put an end to a congressional career which might someday have given him the Speaker’s gavel. It wasn’t even close; Ocasio-Cortez won by some 15 percentage points.This shocker leaves two big and only marginally related questions: Why did it happen? And what will Democratic members of the House believe was the reason it happened?It’s too early to answer the first one. The possible factors are pretty straightforward. The district has changed dramatically over time, becoming a majority-minority district represented by a white man. Crowley hadn’t had to deal with that because he hadn’t faced a primary in years. Indeed, he never had to win the district by primary election in the first place; he was the designated … [Read more...] about The Fallout from New York’s Shock Result
