After a 78-minute rain delay, the golf course was far more forgiving with significantly slower greens, and Matsuyama will head into Sunday’s final round with a four-stroke lead.
Bess Kalb’s touching and funny Jewish memoir ‘Nobody Will Tell You This But Me’ is a matrilineal love story about a bubbe like no other. We sat down with her for a chat about turning her ‘personal grief exercise’ into a bestseller and upcoming film

At the meat-heavy Paleo Market at Latrun, the first course is wild boar, followed by a post-Stone Age dessert of ice cream pop and a good espresso.
How do you tell the difference between a Protestant and a Catholic? A Protestant’s eyes are closer together. We used to believe that when we were children because that’s what everybody said.

The House of Yes performance venue in Brooklyn is closed for now, but the artists that were active in it are busier than ever, finding themselves and making art that speaks to the times we live in.
'Streit’s: Matzo and the American Dream' is far more than a Jewish Horatio Alger story; it’s an inspirational story of a family that didn’t just want to take the money and run.
SS officer Artur Wilke returned to his village after the war and became a grade school teacher. How could an entire community shut its eyes, and what happens when one boy, now 67, decides to talk?
The book Amos Oz’s daughter wrote about his abuse of her as a child is causing shock waves, with many relating to it as the truth, not a literary work. It is a deceptive and unbalanced effort by an entitled person

For an enthusiastic computer nerd, it should have been a fun, fulfilling, money-saving distraction during lockdown. Then the error messages started
It’s just like building Lego, they said. Enjoy the process, they said. You’ll have such a feeling of accomplishment when it’s finished. This is what friends and colleagues told me when I set out to build a PC. It did not quite go that way.
It seems more and more people are choosing to construct their own gaming machines rather than buying them already made. It’s cheaper (in theory), you get to choose the exact specifications, and it’s something to do while you’re stuck at home in lockdown. Even Superman actor Henry Cavill has been getting in on the act, making a video of himself constructing his new machine while wearing a really tight vest. I thought it would be a fun thing to do with my 13-year-old son as a sort of Easter holiday treat. We’re both nerds – what could go wrong? Continue reading...
When groups of sinister drones began hovering over homes in America’s Midwest, the FBI, US Air Force and 16 police forces set up a task force. But the drones vanished. Did they even exist?
At twilight on New Year’s Eve, 2020, Placido Montoya, 35, a plumber from Fort Morgan, Colorado, was driving to work. Ahead of him he noticed blinking lights in the sky. He’d heard rumours of mysterious drones, whispers in his local community, but now he was seeing them with his own eyes. In the early morning gloom, it was hard to make out how big the lights were and how many were hovering above him. But one thing was clear to Montoya: he needed to give chase.
As he approached the drones in his car, they “took off very fast” and Montoya tried to follow. He confesses hitting 120mph before losing track of them. “They were creepy, really creepy,” he says. “I don’t know how to describe it, but it’s almost as if they were watching us.” Continue reading...
The forward, who divides her time between football and working as a play therapist, says Brighton can be a force in the WSL
Aileen Whelan has a double life. The Brighton forward holds a masters degree in child psychology and spends time away from football as a part-time play therapist, which is keeping her extremely busy.
Covid-19 lockdowns may have been a necessary evil but Whelan sees the collateral damage first-hand. “I run my own business, AW Play Therapy, and we’ve had a big influx of referrals during the pandemic,” says the 29-year-old. “It shows how detrimental things like the lockdowns have been to children’s lives.” Continue reading...
While some bats indeed suck blood and others carry viruses like COVID-19, we couldn't live without them. Pollinating hundreds of plant species and dispersing their seeds, bats are central cogs in diverse ecosystems.

Here comes the sun – and with it, dream sunscreens, old and new, for all skin types
One of my most popular recommendations, if your emails and messages are representative, is Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50. This feather-light sunscreen, ideal for oily and congested skins, is loved by many of you; but as it’s imported from Asia, it’s frequently out of stock.
You need go no further than Boots or Superdrug to find a replacement. La Roche-Posay’s new Hyalu B5 Aqua Gel SPF30 (£34, 50ml, available from Boots, Superdrug, Look Fantastic, Feel Unique, Escentual and independent pharmacists) came to me via an unlabelled lab sample last year and I’ve been waiting impatiently to tell you how terrific it is. The transparent gel (great for anyone with a darker skin tone, as well as beardy men) plumps and hydrates skin within moments. All you grease-haters will love the silky finish, which provides enough moisture and slip for oily (even acne-prone), combination and balanced skins to proceed directly to makeup, skipping the day cream altogether. The SPF30 is adequate for extended periods outdoors; remember, the difference between 30 and 50 is pretty tiny. Low-maintenance and comfortable, it will be, for many, the dream sunscreen.

The breakfast host maintains his lead in the morning slot, but experienced his first big hit since taking over from Alan Jones.
With lockdown easing, will you be following Paul Mescal and Harry Styles and baring more leg than usual this summer?
As the weather gets hotter, public spaces open up and people in England prepare to make the most of the Covid lockdown easing, it is the fashion question that has sparked debate online – just how short should shorts be?
Last week, the This is Us actor Milo Ventimiglia was photographed leaving the gym wearing a pair of tiny shorts and it reignited a debate about how much leg was appropriate to reveal. Continue reading...

- Snow Lantern cut in betting after Newbury win
- Chindit stayed on well to win Greenham Stakes
Few trainers’ dreams of Classic success survive the early-season trials largely unscathed, but Richard Hannon came closer than most here on Sunday as wins for Snow Lantern and Chindit left him with credible contenders for both the 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket next month.
Snow Lantern’s success came in a maiden at the top of the card, but she won it so readily that she was cut to around 8-1 to emulate her mother, Sky Lantern, who won the Classic for Hannon’s father, also Richard, in 2013. Continue reading...

The noisy Sheffield band fully realise their pop potential on their fifth album, as they vent thrillingly about society’s manifold ills
The UK album chart is weighted heavily in favour of musicians whose fans actually buy their albums – rightly so, you could argue, given how hard it is for artists to make money these days. One sale of an LP, CD or download is equivalent to 1,000 streams, meaning that if an artist gets their ducks in a row – pre-order campaign, enticing vinyl editions, merchandise bundles – they can gatecrash the Top 5 off the back of fan purchases, as the cult likes of Dry Cleaning, Thunder and RJ Thompson have found in recent weeks.
