His toxic spell is broken: Boris Johnson trips over his own lies | Jonathan Freedland
From https:

Dishonesty has been the one constant in Johnsonas career a in the end the deceit proved too much to bear

Lies and a brazen contempt for the rules powered his rise; lies and a brazen contempt for the rules brought his fall. Which means the political odyssey of Boris Johnson has a curious symmetry. Except that what began as defects in the personality of one man ended as defects in his party and his government, inflicting great damage on the entire country.

The lies that proved his undoing are now all too familiar. The last, fatal lie was his claim that he had not been told directly of complaints of sexual misconduct committed by the former deputy chief whip Chris Pincher, a claim rapidly exposed as false in a rare intervention from a former permanent secretary at the Foreign Office, Simon McDonald. It turned out that Johnson had indeed been briefed about Pincher, and that once again Johnson had not told the truth.

Johnson is going a but he wonat leave until heas dragged everyone down with him | Zoe Williams
From https:

The prime ministeras destructive experiment in clowning has torn up the normal rulebook and turned politics into a farce

Had Boris Johnsonas dramatic disgrace occurred in a normal world, it would have pushed the expectation of a general election back a bit, perhaps to the last possible moment in 2024. The prime minister has finally agreed to resign a ludicrously, he wants to stay in post until the autumn, as ex-ministers beg him to leave (itas possible he only said this because humiliating climbdowns are perversely his happy place). Any new Conservative leader would want to put some blue water between themselves and Johnson and carve out a space in the nationas psyche. Hell, if they were really old-school, theyad want to put together a political programme of their own ideas, hammered into household use through sheer repetition.

That previously modest road map is a fantasy. There is no possible blue water between anyone and Johnson, who wonat sink until everyoneas lapels are splashed in his carnage. Itas hard to imagine the Tory leader with any personalities or philosophies left to try on and harder still to think of the party united enough that it could devise a long-range strategy.

aI told thema: How multiple systems failed when Toledo coachas alleged sexual misconduct was reported
From https:

In the second part of an exclusive investigation, the Guardian can reveal that multiple organizations and institutions tasked with the welfare and protection of athletes failed to consider, investigate or address repeated allegations of sexual misconduct against Toledo soccer coach Brad Evans

The Universty of Toledo knew in 2015 about an allegation of sexual misconduct by Brad Evans, coach of its womenas soccer team, but sidelined the claims to allow the coach to eventually resign citing ainappropriate relationshipsa. The university was also aware of concerns raised by players and families about his behavior since 2012.

The university took five years to acknowledge the sexual misconduct allegation a only after the current coach of the University of Toledo womenas team filed a report to the schoolas Title IX office in 2020. The reported victim of the alleged sexual misconduct was Candice Fabry, a former student, athlete and assistant coach at the university, as exclusively reported by the Guardian.

UToledo did conduct an investigation following a report by a student-athlete in January 2015 of verbal harassment by Brad Evans, who was at the time the Head Coach of the womenas soccer team. The investigation did find that Mr. Evansa conduct toward student-athletes may have violated the Universityas Standards of Conduct policy, however, the case was not referred for possible disciplinary action because by the conclusion of the investigation in March 2015, Mr. Evans had already resigned his position effective Feb. 23, 2015.

From Biggie to Kendrick: super-producer Pete Rock on hip-hopas golden ages
From https:

The musician with the Midas touch has sold 25m albums a but heas still fighting for the recognition heas due

At this yearas BET awards, the honor for lifetime achievement went to Sean aDiddya Combs a and why not? He signed the Notorious BIG and takes credit for ainventinga the remix. He changed what it means to be called a hip-hop super producer while becoming a multi-platinum-selling rapper himself. Really, heas not that much different from Pete Rock.

Rock (real name Peter O Philips) is the other kind of super-producer, the one who actually does the grunt work of trawling for rare records and cutting and stitching them into something fresh. In fact, he could just as easily take credit for inventing the remix while reimagining Public Enemyas Shut Em Down and House of Painas Jump Around. Rock has collaborated with Kanye and Kendrick and seen his Midas touch translate to 25m global album sales and untold billions more in streams. And heas an impressive rapper in his own right; Rolling Stone ranks his 1991 hit with CL Smooth, They Reminisce Over You, among its 500 greatest songs.

A hawk-eye on Centre Court! A day with Wimbledonas star pigeon-chaser
From https:

Wayne Davis and his hawks have been scaring birds at the tennis championships and Canary Wharf for 15 years. But is his profession now under threat?

If humans thought like hawks, we would only be thinking of our next kill. If we could see like hawks, we would have eyes the size of tennis balls, scanning the Earth for a rabbit or a slow-moving pigeon. If we could fly like hawks, we would swoop close to the ground, barely skimming buildings in a muscular sprint. If we could live like hawks, there would be no worry or despair, just the pleasurable fatigue of a successful hunt, digestion in a quiet copse, rising hunger and the hunt once again.

But humans cannot think like hawks, so instead we project on to them our own characteristics. Which is how I come to find myself asking Wayne Davis of the Corby-based firm Avian Environmental Consultants whether he thinks he has a special bond with Rufus, his 15-year-old male Harrisas hawk. The 59-year-old Davis gives a creaky laugh at the thought. aThe bond is just food, basically,a he says. aIam beneficial to him. If he doesnat actually catch anything, he still gets rewarded with food from me. Heas not coming back to me because he loves me or anything like that. Itas purely food.a

Interpol: The Other Side of Make-Believe review | Alexis Petridis's album of the week
From https:

(Matador)
One of the definitive New York buzz bands of the 00s, the trio relax their tense mood a just a little a on an album of pleasures and longeurs

aStill in shape, my methods refined,a sings Paul Banks on Toni, the opening track of Interpolas seventh studio album. Banks is a lyric writer who, throughout his career, has tended to deal in allusion and opacity, the kind of imagery that sounds as though it means something, but can essentially be interpreted in any way the listener sees fit: aDraw me a million years and Iall probably make them my home / eternity brought me tears, but itas the cold I collect on my own,a he sings, characteristically, elsewhere on The Other Side of Make-Believe.

But, whether intended or not, that line from Toni feels like a neat summation of where the band heas fronted since 1997 are, 25 years later. Interpol may well have been the archetypical early 00s New York alt-rock buzz band: derivative but stylish, bedevilled by excess, unable to translate the excitement generated by their early releases into the mainstream, household-name success won by less hip but more commercially driven contemporaries.

aA truce with the treesa: Rebecca Solnit on the wonders of a 300-year old violin
From https:

Made with all-renewable materials, this violin from 1721 reflects a time of magnificent culture a a global gathering from before the climate crisis

For the last 50 years, David Harrington, the founder and artistic director of San Franciscoas Kronos Quartet, has been playing what he calls apretty athletic musica on a violin made in 1721. Iave heard him play all kinds of compositions on it, from the galloping notes of Orange Blossom Special to the minimalism of Terry Riley and even the occasional bit of Bach. The instrument made by Carlo Giuseppe Testore in Milan has survived three centuries, providing music for countless audiences, and can be heard on more than 60 Kronos albums.

When I first learned the age of the instrument I was filled with wonder that a delicate piece of craftsmanship could endure for centuries, that something so small and light could do so much, that an instrument made in the 18th century could have so much to say in the 21st. It felt like a messenger from the past and an emblem of the possible, a relic and a promise.

Thereas an antifeminist backlash silencing women a more and more literally | Moira Donegan
From https:

Powerful men are using defamation lawsuits to shut down allegations against them, and anti-choice groups are trying to pass laws criminalizing speech about abortion

Weare in a moment of antifeminist backlash, and, increasingly, that backlash seems aimed at silencing women, or punishing the women who wonat shut up. Itas a perilous time for womenas speech a or at least, itas a perilous time for women who speak out against sexism. Over the course of this spring and summer, threats to feminist activists and abuse survivors have multiplied and become more serious, with women who speak out against menas violence or in favor of womenas rights increasingly targeted by abusers, vigilantes, antifeminist activists and lawmakers, and the courts.

The trend became inescapably visible this spring, as the actor Johnny Deppas defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard stretched on for weeks. Deppas court battle against his ex-wife, his second time suing over the allegations that he beat and sexually assaulted her, attracted frenzied, hate-filled attention on social media the way a boulder gathers mud as it rolls downhill. But though Deppas lawsuit received an unusual amount of attention, his tactic of suing his accuser over her disclosure is not unique.
