Oxford University has been accused of awarding itself a ‘first class degree in political correctness’ after snubbing Theresa May’s achievements in a series of portraits celebrating diversity. The prime minister is one of a number of notable women absent from the list of former Oxford University students chosen to reflect its ‘commitment to inclusivity’. Oxford has announced the commission of 24 portraits to be displayed around the university reflecting sitters from a variety of backgrounds. The university said last night that Mrs May was omitted from the list because no staff or students currently at Oxford had bothered to nominate her. The row echoes the furore over the university’s refusal to award Margaret Thatcher with an honorary degree in 1985. Among those to be painted or photographed include Ken Loach, the left-wing film director, the BBC journalist Reeta Chakrabarti, the broadcaster Dame Esther Rantzen and Kelsey Leonard, the first Native American to graduate … [Read more...] about Oxford University accused of snubbing Theresa May in row over portraits celebrating diversity
Vijay 63 film director
Oscar-nominated Hollywood director Michael Mann has been in Italy long enough to develop a morning routine – a cappuccino grande – and find a favorite café in Modena, where he is shooting his latest film, "Ferrari." This city is the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari and his company, and is famed for fast cars and good food. "Cities fascinate me – they have their own character," Mann said. Correspondent Seth Doane asked, "What do you get out of a city like this one, Modena?" "What I get is a real challenge to understand what life is like if you're living here," he replied. "To me the challenge is to get so deep into this specific regional culture, because the deeper I do that, the more universal it becomes." The detail-obsessed director has made a career of prompting audiences to feel for the characters in his films, whether it's the last remaining member of the Mohican tribe, or the plight of a tobacco industry whistleblower in "The Insider." There was the collective stress we felt … [Read more...] about Michael Mann on the prequel/sequel novel “Heat 2,” and going deep on the life of cities

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu deserves the best in the world and by George the world is going to make sure she gets it. The icon, who took the Love Island crown alongside boyfriend Davide Sanclimenti last week, was treated to a slap-up meal at her local this weekend, ahead of the anticipated Reunion episode, airing tonight. Despite the loved-up pair looking positively enamoured with one another on the Love Island couch after the taping days ago, and their couple’s workout in the gym upon their return to the UK, she stepped out solo for the Sheesh meal on Saturday night. Ekin-Su, 27, looked stunning, as per, as she was seen heading to the Chigwell, Essex, restaurant in a brown dress and strappy, white heels, while she toted her classic Chanel handbag. Nothing close to a ‘fake like the Louis Vuitton from China here’!
