A Greek restaurant has pipped rivals to sit at the top of the TripAdvisor rankings for Cardiff restaurants. The Greek Spot on Whitchurch Road is the highest ranked eatery on the reviews website, with a five-star rating. Out of 88 reviews, it has 81 excellent labels, six very goods and one average, with no reviewers branding it poor or terrible. It meant we had high hopes when we visited there on Wednesday night. Unfortunately, our experience did not live up to the great reviews left on TripAdvisor over the last seven months. Reviewers have described it as a "little gem" with great food and great service. Just this week, Soph A wrote that it had "brilliant hospitality" and said it was her "new favourite place". We phoned The Greek Spot on Tuesday night to book a table for two for 7.30pm the following evening. There were around four other tables already taken when we arrived and we waited for a short while for someone to greet us. We were taken to our table and then waited for around 15 … [Read more...] about We tried the best restaurant in Cardiff according to TripAdvisor
Why bad taste in mouth
The Russian perspective on political correctness is pretty simple: “If you’re going to stab me, there is no reason to paint the knife pretty colors.” I have a British friend who also lives in St. Petersburg. One day, he complained to me that he can’t handle Russian racism. When I asked him what happened, he said, “she said Paris sucks now because of all the immigrants.” Six months later, I watched a speech by U.S. President Donald Trump where he said, “Paris isn’t Paris anymore.” And then he shrugged as if to say, *wink* *wink* Trump was trying to be politically correct. My friend’s date was not. Both of them were being a**holes, but in true Russian fashion, my friend’s date was simply being honest about it. When I broached the subject of political correctness with Russians, many did not understand what I meant. I received questions like, “you mean when politicians lie?” or, “do you mean something about … [Read more...] about Is there political correctness in Russia?
Courtney Crowder and Jason Clayworth Des Moines Register Published 2:31 PM EDT Apr 21, 2019 An Iowa teen allegedly calling a hotel maid the N-word at a 4-H conference. A man not hired for about 10 jobs allegedly because he is black. A woman accused of discrimination against her blond-haired, blue-eyed colleague. A cardboard cutout inviting Iowa State Fairgoers to take photos with the phrase: “Every Calf Deserves a White Face.” These are a few of the behind-the-scenes allegations of racism or ethnic insensitivity raised against Iowa 4-H — the largest youth organization in the state — in at least the past five years, a Des Moines Register investigation found. The accusations come at a particularly sensitive time for 4-H as organizers try to grow membership by diversifying their ranks and weather a controversial directive from the Trump administration that rescinded guidance on how to best include transgender participants. In Iowa, … [Read more...] about Lawsuit, records allege systemic racism, cultural bias in Iowa 4-H

Dikamona tagged the Scottish Professional Football League in some now-deleted messages, prompting Aston Villa’s former St Mirren and Hibernian midfielder John McGinn to call him a “grass”. Tansey subsequently received a two-match retrospective ban from the Scottish Football Association. The 30-year-old, who returns for Saturday’s trip to St Johnstone, said: “I don’t want to get into trouble and say too much but the way it happened left a bitter taste in my mouth. But these things happen and you have to take it on the chin and deal with it. “I’ve got an inbox, he could have taken it up with me there, but he didn’t. It’s … [Read more...] about Tansey left with ‘bitter taste’ after two-match ban
