The city was at the epicenter of Europe’s pandemic. Now its soccer club wants to ‘bring a smile’ back to ‘damaged’ region

Gasperini was appointed manager of Atalanta in June 2016, following a successful spell at Genoa — and a not-so-successful spell at Inter Milan where he was sacked after just three months — and immediately brought about an uptick in form with his attacking style of play and innovative 3-4-1-2 formation.

‘I’m at a completely different stage in my life now’: Samantha Faiers reveals she WON’T return for TOWIE’s 10th anniversary reunion… despite making a staggering ‘£9million fortune’ from show

Column: Markets second-guess policy rollback – Mike Dolan

But she said markets would need to prepare for some volatility when fiscal and monetary supports end, and this would help decide how much of market pricing is based on reasonable recovery expectations and how much is artificially supported by temporary policy stimuli.

Reintroducing uncultivated edible plants into our kitchens

Kamal recalls that in his childhood, while rice was staple, the surprise element was in the greens that used to depend on the weather and the time of the year. “My mother could never decide the menu for the next day because she would not know what was available until she went for a stroll […]

Column: How herding and inertia cork volatility in perilous time

The net effect, Barth reckoned, is lower average volatility with more frequent but temporary spikes; negative term premia in bond markets along with rising equity risk premia; a vanishing ability to generate benchmark-beating – or “alpha” – returns; and a shift toward private assets and venture capital while handing more liquid portfolios to passive or […]

Let’s move to Ilford, east London: ‘One of today’s boomtowns’

What’s going for it? Ilford’s attraction is not immediate. I rise past it most weeks on the North Circular; you might be in any outer London suburb, Kingston or Kingsbury, Bromley or Barnet. If you squint hard (health and safety warning: not when you’re driving), you could even be in Los Angeles. Maybe. Look, Ilford […]

Frankie Boyle

He is, however, an excellent joke-writer, a talent that is intermittently revealed. There are amusing sideswipes at the corruption and inanity of 21st-century TV, and a gleefully unsporting riff on drugs in athletics.

Wowie, I love 10 years of TOWIE: It’s spawned its own language, made tans trendy and millionaires of working-class women – snobs may sneer, but JULIE BURCHILL is unabashed in celebrating the show’s anniversary

Maybe, when we look back on the history of the English working-class, we’ll see that the ‘Red Wall’ was lost not in the smoke-filled rooms of the Durham miners’ galas but, a decade earlier, by soft Southerners, in the ladies’ loos at the Sugar Hut.
