Richard Dreyfuss: 'I was a bad guy for a number of years' “Don’t shoot, I win Oscar.” These words, says Richard Dreyfuss, are printed on the shirt he’s wearing under his grey jacket. He is at home in San Diego, reclining in a voluminous brown leather armchair. Behind him is a picture of his wife, Svetlana, resting on a shelf beside his Bafta and David di Donatello awards.
Donald Trump: Reelect me and I will continue to deliver safety, prosperity and opportunity for all Americans Four years ago, Americans elected me president to go to Washington, drain the swamp and produce real results for them. Now they have a choice: continue the record of prosperity that my administration delivered or return to the old Washington status quo, where Beltway insiders enriched themselves at the expense of hardworking Americans across the country. My administration has delivered safety, prosperity and opportunity for all Americans by keeping our promises and implementing an America First agenda to support working people and their families over the past four years. The American people deserve so much more than what the Democratic ticket has to offer in this election. After enduring eight disastrous years of the Obama-Biden mess, the nation deserves to enjoy eight full years of growth and economic prosperity under my administration.
England beaches gridlock caused by cars 'from all over country' Beaches across England have been seeing high numbers of visitors apparently defying coronavirus concerns. Cars from "all over the country" were in gridlock in Devon, police said. In Cornwall, Perranporth beach had hundreds of people on it, while the warm weather also brought people out to Southend seafront in Essex. In Merseyside, people visited Sefton's beaches despite pleas to stay away, and there was a reported 40-minute queue for a toilet in Skegness. In Devon, Saunton Sands beach car park, near Braunton, was described as "looking like August", with nearby Woolacombe described as "a particular pinch point" for traffic.
Liverpool cruise past Crystal Palace to put Premier League title in sight The Premier League title will not arrive as anyone at Liverpool envisaged but, should this prove the victory that delivers number 19, a masterful dismantling of a Crystal Palace team led by Roy Hodgson will seem highly appropriate. The imperfections that surround Liverpool’s season are not of their making. Ten years ago Hodgson stood perplexed in the dugout that Jürgen Klopp now commands. Five years ago it was Palace that left Liverpool’s new manager feeling alone after Scott Dann’s late winner sent home fans heading for the exits. How far Liverpool have come from that low ebb and that loneliness. The club, united even while apart from its fans, stands on the verge of a first league title for 30 years after a performance that captured the best of this season’s undisputed champions.
Texas Supreme Court upholds limiting ballot drop off sites to one per county The Texas Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Governor Greg Abbott's order that limits counties to one mail ballot drop-off location. The order, which has sparked legal and political controversy in the state, prevents some of the state's largest counties from setting up multiple drop-off sites. The unanimous decision from the all-Republican court overturned a lower court's decision to issue an injunction on Abbott's order. A state appeals upheld the lower court's decision last week.
Coronavirus: Fauci warns Senate of 'serious consequences' Media playback is unsupported on your device The top US infectious diseases doctor has warned senators that the coronavirus will spread further if the country opens up too soon. Dr Anthony Fauci said if federal guidelines to reopen were not followed, "little spikes" would become outbreaks. He also said the real US death toll is probably higher than the official figure of 80,000. His message is at odds with the upbeat tone of President Donald Trump who is keen to get the economy going again. Young guns Willock and Nketiah lead Arsenal to win over Southampton In the stand, Mesut Özil gazed on under a parasol. Somewhere in London, Matteo Guendouzi pondered the error of his ways. One win will not answer the questions, many of them regarding fundamental aspects of the club’s operation, that hang over Arsenal but this was a well-earned day in the sun against a below-par Southampton and means they remain on the tail of the European spots. It was not without a significant slice of fortune but, in the circumstances, the victory’s architects could hardly have been more timely. Around 36 hours previously, the club had aroused furious discussion by awarding sizeable new deals to David Luiz, Cédric Soares and Pablo Marí.
‘Halloween Kills’: Michael Myers Is Still Alive, Laurie Strode Warns About The Killings In Bloody Teaser - Entertainment David Gordon Green’s Halloween (2018) changed a lot of things not just for the slasher film franchise but also for the business of spooky sequels, a retcon in this case. If you need a little reminder, the Green directorial was a direct retroactive continuity progression of John Carpenter’s original Halloween (1978) that introduced Michael Myers as The Shape, a masked serial killer and dispelled many other sequels since the release of the OG. It went on to rake in a lot of money thanks to Jamie Lee Curtis’ return as Laurie Strode after 40 years of her narrow escape, which gave the film a familial feel. Which is exactly why Blumhouse renewed the sequence and okayed two more sequels of the plot namely, Halloween Kills and Halloween ends which were to be released in 2020 and 2021 respectively! Yeah, that didn’t happen courtesy – the Coronavirus pandemic, and the films got pushed to 2021 and 2022. But hey, we can now indulge in a few jump scares while we wait.
UK: Junior Minister says 'thousands' are being traced under government's COVID-19 response The United Kingdom’s junior health minister Edward Argar reportedly said that ‘thousands’ of people are being successfully traced as part of the government’s COVID-19 response. As the UK government launched test and trace system back in May, Argar said that the authorities are into the thousands being successfully traced at the moment. Though he wasn’t able to provide specific numbers, he reportedly, however, said that the government is working with the statistics authority to agree the process to make sure that accept it’s reliable. Last month, UK health secretary Matt Hancock had announced the ‘test, track and trace system’. Hancock explained that the programme involved contact tracing and tracing via the smartphone app. The application helps people, who have developed COVID-19 symptoms, to register.
Kevin Kwan: 'With Crazy Rich Asians my life exploded and I’m still trying to put it back together' It’s difficult to square Kevin Kwan, modern master of high romp, with the dark and brooding personality he claims as his default setting. “I’m actually a very melancholy, serious person,” he says seriously. Sitting at his kitchen table on a video call, bright Los Angeles light blinking through the blinds, Kwan is keen to draw a firm line between the parodic glamour of his blockbuster novels and the “very tense, mordant introvert” he sees himself as in real life. “It was such a surprise to my friends that I wrote Crazy Rich Asians,” he says. “They couldn’t believe this was the book I was writing because it’s not in my natural voice which, in terms of writing, is very surgical, very precise, very minimal, very devastating, you know?”
America’s election - Why it has to be Biden THE COUNTRY that elected Donald Trump in 2016 was unhappy and divided. The country he is asking to re-elect him is more unhappy and more divided. After almost four years of his leadership, politics is even angrier than it was and partisanship even less constrained. Digital alerts to warn UK rail passengers of busy trains and stations Rail passengers can now be warned of busy trains and stations before they leave home as part of a UK industry system designed to help maintain physical distancing and safe travel during the coronavirus pandemic. The technology will combine data on journey trends and live updates from station staff, to both inform passengers searching for journeys on the National Rail website and app, and alert those who opt in for updates on specific journeys, using their anonymised data to help predict how busy each train will be. Train operators hope that a widespread sign-up to the service will mean passengers stagger journeys where possible. Keeping 2 metres apart onboard has reduced average train capacity to about 10% of normal levels. Passenger numbers on national rail services are about 5% of pre-crisis figures.
‘I don’t let regret in’: Pierce Brosnan on love, loss and his life after Bond I am 10 minutes into my Zoom interview with Pierce Brosnan when his son Dylan arrives off-screen with his father’s coffee. “Did you put sugar in this?” he says to the 23-year-old. “Some more milk, please, I don’t take mine black.” Dylan is sent back to correct it.
