10 quotes that sum up Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s thoughts on marriage and relationships

Throughout her impressive career as a lawyer and later, a Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought tirelessly for women and their right to be equal to men.

In her private life, the 87-year-old, who died Friday 18 September from metastatic pancreatic cancer, upheld the same values, as did her late husband, Martin.

Three NFL coaches fined $100k each for not wearing face masks during games

Three NFL coaches have been fined $100,000 (£78,558) each, for not wearing face masks during last weekend’s games.

Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio, San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, and Seattle Seahawks boss Pete Carroll were each fined $100,00, following their team’s respective fixtures.

This week, Caroline Eames Brasler was shopping at a Party City store in Bailey’s Crossroads, Virginia, for her two daughters when she noticed two Confederate costumes.

Luton vs Manchester United: Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood’s late goals settle EFL Cup tie

Manchester United arrived at Kenilworth Road with three objectives for the evening: to respond well to Saturday’s dismal home to Crystal Palace, to build up much-needed match fitness after their lack of pre-season preparations, and to reach the EFL Cup fourth round. They would just about pass on all three counts.

Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood’s late goals off the substitutes’ bench were required in order for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to firm up a lead established by Juan Mata’s first-half penalty and overcome a brave but ultimately beaten Luton Town. A trip to either Preston North End or Brighton and Hove Albion now awaits next week.

United were not at their best, though not at their worst either...

The Great British Bake Off review: Matt Lucas out-bants Noel Fielding as the invincible show returns

Glastonbury. The Olympic Games. The Hajj annual pilgrimage to Mecca. The world economy. All knocked on the head by coronavirus. But not even a deadly pandemic is a match for the invincible Great British Bake Off, which returns defiantly for its 11th series. Cast and crew have bravely bubbled their way through the social distancing restrictions, the latest dozen contestants, banged up together under virtual house arrest for seven weeks. They had to. Bake Off is, after all, an essential, vital contributor to national morale, like Vera Lynn during the war.  

As the nights draw in, the pubs and restaurants close early and a chill descends on our crisis-hit land, we all need to watch people preparing sponges...
