Manchester United have a mentality problem against the top six, claims Roy Keane

Manchester United have scored just once against the top six in seven matches this term (Photo by Ash Donelon/Manchester United via Getty Images)Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes his former side could have a mentality problem in the matches against their top six rivals. The Red Devils played out a 0-0 draw with top four rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon, which was fourth 0-0 in a row for the club against one of their top six rivals. United have failed to win in their seven matches against Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham this season, scoring just once in a 6-1 defeat to Spurs in October. That goal came from a Bruno Fernandes penalty within two minutes in the defeat to Jose Mourinho’s side and United once again failed to sc...

Loner hid iPhone X in communal bathroom to watch students taking showers

Doyun Kim – also known as Eric – had 24 upskirting clips on his phone (Picture: Cavendish)An undergraduate has been spared jail after he was caught secretly filming more than 20 students. Doyun ‘Eric’ Kim, 21, took up-skirt videos across the Manchester University campus as his victims climbed flights of stairs before lectures or at freshers’ events. He was caught out when a woman taking a shower spotted his iPhone X poking out behind a toilet roll and some small binbags he had used to try and hide it. In November 2019 she noticed that the phone was recording and saw a thumbnail of engineering student Kim on the screen. She stopped the recording, deleted the footage and rang the police. The mobile was scanned by forensics experts who discovered 24 different up-skirting vid...

Animal Crossing: New Horizons March update: how to get all Super Mario items

Animal Crossing: New Horizons – a super addition (pic: Nintendo)March means new bugs, fishes, and sea creatures for Animal Crossing, but also a brand new set of Super Mario items and clothing. Nintendo Switch blockbuster Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be a year old this month and to commemorate the fact a huge collection of new Super Mario themed items has been released.

Hyatt Hotels said it is taking claims the CPAC stage was inspired by a Nazi rune ‘very seriously’ and called hate symbols ‘abhorrent’

Summary List PlacementThe Hyatt Hotels Corporation called hate symbols "abhorrent" after the stage at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which took place at a Hyatt hotel, resembled a Nordic rune that appeared on Nazi uniforms.

I can’t get through the week without receiving hate mail – this time it was another death threat

Barely a week goes by when I do not suffer from abuse, racist, sexist or general threats on social media (Picture: Getty Images/Cultura RF)Last week I received yet another death threat against me online, this time a man threatening me with ‘a bullet to the back of the head’.   This threat was deeply distressing and appalling for me to read. My friend MP Jo Cox was murdered in 2016 and every threat reminds me of that.   Barely a week goes by when I do not suffer from abuse, racist, sexist or general threats on social media.   I’m very grateful to the police for their support and for understanding the distress caused, and I hope this person will be prosecuted to the fullest extent.   I am also thankful for the people who identified him as a former Prospective Parliamentary Candid

The Off-the-Shoulder Top Is Back, and Vaccine-Jab Ready

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos via GettyThe vaccine selfie is both a flex and a work of art. While it’s disheartening to see, say, a SoulCycle instructor get to the front of the line under the guise of being a “teacher,” it remains endlessly warming to watch someone’s grandmother get her jab. A shot in the arm has become another social media rite of passage, and as access (slowly) trickles down to the rest of us, trends are born. While sweatpants—the mac and cheese, comfort food of fashion—came to represent the need for comfort amid a crumbling society, we need a new piece of clothing to represent the impending promise of a brighter future. Enter: the off-the-shoulder top. As made clear in a viral tweet from this week, cold shoulders are the perfect mix of fashion and func...

These Alt-Weeklies Faced ‘Total Annihilation.’ Here’s How They Survived.

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/CourtesyAre alt-weeklies ever going to catch a break? An already precarious media industry has only become more precarious for alternative weeklies, which are mainly funded by ads from restaurants, bars, and concert venues—businesses that depend on people gathering in large groups, and whose cultural coverage centers around telling readers to go out and do things. It’s a story we’ve all heard before. Many alternative weeklies have been gutted, or closed in the last five years. The Village Voice closed in 2018; LA Weekly was sold in 2017 and gutted; the same year Baltimore City Paper closed. Others were casualties of the pandemic: City Pages, Minnesota’s beloved alt-weekly, particularly known for music writing, closed last fall. The pandemic was suppos...

The Next COVID-19 Nightmare for People of Color Is Proving They Got the Shot

Octavio Jones/GettyAs we near the one-year anniversary of stay-at-home orders in the United States, COVID-19 vaccine distribution has begun, albeit in rather messy fashion. In the U.S. to date, over 49 million people have received at least one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, and over 24 million have received their second dose as well, according to the CDC. Despite promises of smooth and widespread vaccine distribution from the Trump administration in the fall of last year, the vast majority of vaccinations have only been administered under the direction of President Biden’s COVID-19 Task Force. And stories of people skipping the line, political favoritism, and wealthy individuals gaming the system continue to taint the process nationwide. Soon, though, with the Johnson & Johns...

The Only Way Forward Is to Drain the Swamp and Lock Trump and His Gang Up

Olivier Douliery/GettyThere’s only one way to restore a cynical and traumatized majority’s faith in the rule of law and the Department of Justice, and that’s to drain the GOP swamp, hold Trump accountable for his numerous crimes, and—to quote from Gladiator—“unleash hell” on his criminal allies and enablers. Just yesterday Donald Trump returned to face his adoring cult at the annual CPAC conference and kept promoting the Big Lie that he won the 2020 election, a lie that inspired a violent insurrection that killed five people. This dangerous, reckless behavior, supported by the GOP and its media propagandists, will only continue absent any legal consequences. “The Biden administration needs to bring what I call a ‘season of reckoning’ for the corruption and grift that we have suffered thro...

15% of school staff test positive for Covid antibodies

Caption: ONS school stats PA/GettyAround 15% of school staff have tested positive for coronavirus antibodies, according to a new survey from the Office of National Statistics (ONS). But the findings do not suggest that teachers have had more exposure to Covid-19 than other members of the public, amid outcry that teachers and other front line staff have been ‘ignored’ in the latest priority lists for vaccinations. Schools are set to reopen on March 8 in England and there are concerns that the move could mean more teachers, particularly in secondary schools, become infected. But the ONS revealed that 15.7% of secondary school staff and 14.6% of primary school staff tested positive for antibodies between December 2 and 10, which is not significantly different rate to the rest ...
