San Francisco is fed up with Big Tech, and residents are begging the next mayor to do something about it

San Francisco's housing market is out of control, and residents want the tech industry to answer for it. San Francisco's out-of-control housing prices continues to cause an uproar.  With the election for San Francisco mayor less than three weeks away, many residents are focused on how the candidates will fix the housing crisis. For some candidates, that means asking the tech industry to answer for gentrification and the impact it's had on the real estate market.    San Francisco is in trouble. The streets are filthy. Housing prices are out-of-control. The city is host to 1.23% of all homeless Americans. Some...

Three days, 110,000 books sold: how does David Walliams do it?

I was incredibly fearful as a child: I hid my copy of The Witches at the top of a cupboard so it couldn’t “get” me; and I made my mum read the Gollum bits of The Hobbit out loud for me, as I was too scared to do it myself. So I was ready to deal with any literary terrors my children might bring to me sensitively and kindly. No go: as yet, my eight-year-old has been unafraid of everything from Gollum to Voldemort, and my kind and understanding face has been unrequired. Except on one occasion – for which...

My favourite Pinter by Tamsin Greig, Robert Glenister and Janie Dee

Tamsin Greig on The Homecoming As a teenager I used to quote lines from as if they were my own, like “I’ll chop your spine off!” I studied the play at school and a group of actors including Christopher Benjamin and Roger Lloyd-Pack came in to do a rehearsed reading of it. I was probably about 16. It was brilliant. I’ve never seen a full production but The Homecoming has stuck with me through the years It peeps through the window of a London family: a patriarch and his three sons, one of whom is returning from America with his...

Martin Parr returns to Manchester to capture its changing landscape

Almost 50 years after he was nearly kicked out of Manchester’s polytechnic for failing his photo theory course, the documentary photographer has trained his lens on the city once more. In Return to Manchester, a major commission for Art Gallery, Parr creates a portrait of a rapidly changing urban landscape which this year had more cranes on the skyline than any other European city, according to the council’s chief executive. This time, Parr looks at bourgeoise Manchester as well as his more familiar working classes: a shopper in the Unicorn, an organic cooperative supermarket, wearing a “this is what a...

'Having a child is a distraction from your own mortality': Kathryn Hahn and Tamara Jenkins on their IVF film

Eleven years ago, the director Tamara Jenkins was flying round the world promoting her second film, . A sad, frank comedy about suddenly caring for a father with Alzheimer’s, it won rave reviews, then Oscar nominations for Jenkins and star . Professionally, life was peachy. Privately, more rotten. Jenkins, who was then 45, and her husband, the screenwriter Jim Taylor, were trying unsuccessfully to start a family. Natural methods seemed a non-starter; medical intervention hit a brick wall; egg donation was fraught; international adoption was swaddled in red tape (no one over a certain age or weight, said China). Her...

Government regulators are banning menthol cigarettes and chipping away at flavored e-cigs — but not in the way some thought

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb Federal regulators on Thursday announced a ban on menthol cigarettes and a move to place flavored e-cigarettes like the Juul behind a stronger regulatory fence. The move is less severe than what some expected to see: an immediate ban on flavored e-cigs being sold at convenience stores and gas stations. Menthol and mint e-cigarettes aren't affected by the government's proposal at all. Earlier this week, Silicon Valley e-cig startup Juul announced it would temporarily stop selling its flavored e-cigarettes in stores — a move it likely made in advance of the government's latest statement. Instead of...

The significance of the film...
