"But that's where you need to be mentally strong and cope with it. That's how a lot of teams get out of these situations, because they know how to mentally cope with it. After a loss, they put it away and go again. That's what the message has been, to try your hardest to put it away, because you need a frame of mind where you can push and go again and again and again. That's what we are trying to do here." … [Read more...] about Alex Tettey exclusive: The mental toll of a relegation battle with Norwich

Kassis focuses the book on food and kin; in an opinion piece she wrote in February for the Washington Post, she gave voice to the objections raised by many Palestinians over the notion of “Israeli cuisine.” “By and large, the dishes that make up the Israeli ‘national food’ repertoire (hummus, falafel, msabaha, baba ghanoush, knafeh) were learned from the Palestinian population,” she wrote. “In many restaurants and cookbooks, Israelis have no problem including such items as ‘Yemeni schug,’ ‘Iraqi sabich’ or ‘Tunisian salad.’ But the absence of the word ‘Palestinian’ from their menus and books is a glaring omission. As many Israeli academics and food writers themselves have pointed out, the word ‘Palestinian’ is still considered by many Israelis as a threat to their existence.” … [Read more...] about Palestinian cookbooks help preserve a culture’s identity
My most reluctant hire was Pete Hammond. He’d been trying for years to get a blog at the LA Times and had accomplished it. We went around and around: his main concern was that I’d turn him into a mini-me. I promised to let him be him as long as he let me be me. And I never broke that pledge, which he told the Publicists’ Guild when he won their award in 2013 working for Deadline. Other underutilized talents hired as key staffers included David Lieberman, Patrick Hipes, Nancy Tartaglione, Dominic Patten, Denise Petski and Erik Pedersen. To the present day, Deadline’s initial staff almost entirely remains. Soon we had more readers than Variety and THR combined. And it’s also with great pride that my idea for a “Contenders” event, offered free at awards time to the studios and distributors, grew thanks to Madelyn Hammond and Stacey Farish into what are now two huge annual presentations, one for Oscars and one for Emmys. … [Read more...] about Deadline Turns 10 And Celebrates Disruptors: Nikki Finke Looks Back
I've not been the Duchess of Sussex's biggest fan, to put it mildly, but I actually thought she hit the perfect tone in her comments about George Floyd today, telling students in a video message about her own painful memories of witnessing the 1992 riots in Los Angeles after the brutal beating of Rodney King, and quoting her old teacher Ms Pollia who would tell her: 'Always remember to put others' needs above your own fears'. … [Read more...] about PIERS MORGAN: You’re not fit to light Churchill’s cigar, Mr President so listen to Meghan Markle and stop dividing and start uniting a country crying out in pain
Thanks, Cindy: As the mask-wearing issue has heated up in recent weeks, airlines have become a lot more vocal about enforcement -- and I don't think that any of them are better about this than others. However, there are still no federal rules requiring the use of masks in flight, so a non-compliant traveler can't be arrested for breaking any mask wearing laws. However, onboard planes, passengers are required by law to follow the orders of captains and crew members, and if they choose not to wear masks, they can be removed from the plane. But it really comes down to individual behavior, and there's really not a way to ensure that the person next to you will remain masked for the entire flight. --Chris … [Read more...] about Readers have more travel questions.
