Stephen Merchant: aI see The Outlaws as a suburban, low-rent westerna
From https:

The comic actor and writer on his new sitcom about community service, sharing Christopher Walkenas omelette and portraying a serial killer

Stephen Merchant, 46, is a writer, producer, director and comic actor who rose to fame in 2001 with The Office, about life at a paper supply company in Slough. Created by Merchant and his former XFM co-presenter Ricky Gervais, the awards-festooned series spawned a US version starring Steve Carell, and is credited with prompting a new wave of comedy series that dispensed with laughter tracks and punchlines in favour of a mockumentary style. The pair followed up The Office with Extras, in which Merchant played incompetent agent to Gervaisas struggling actor, amid a feast of celebrity cameos. In 2013 he wrote and starred in the HBO sitcom Hello Ladies, a series based on his standup routine and which followed an Englishman in Los Angeles and his failed attempts at dating. Elsewhere, he has worked variously as a DJ on BBC 6 Music, a podcaster and voiceover artist, and has appeared in films including Hot Fuzz and Jojo Rabbit.

Merchantas new six-part series, The Outlaws, co-created with Elgin James, follows the fortunes of seven strangers doing community service in Merchantas former hometown of Bristol. Characters include Darren Boydas reactionary businessman, Clare Perkinsa diehard activist, Eleanor Tomlinsonas spoilt influencer, Merchantas sad-sack solicitor a and Christopher Walken in his first role in a British comedy, as a career criminal fresh out of prison.

Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen discuss their dads, their unlikely friendship, and second careers a as podcast hosts

President Barack Obama
Good conversations donat follow a script. Like a good song, theyare full of surprises, improvisations, detours. They may be grounded in a specific time and place, reflecting your state of mind and the current state of the world. But the best conversations also have a timeless quality, taking you back into the realm of memory, propelling you forward toward your hopes and dreams. Sharing stories reminds you that youare not alone a and maybe helps you understand yourself a little bit better.

When Bruce and I first sat down in the summer of 2020 to record Renegades: Born in the USA, we didnat know how our conversations would turn out. What I did know was that Bruce was a great storyteller, a bard of the American experience a and that we both had a lot on our minds, including some fundamental questions about the troubling turn our country had taken. A historic pandemic showed no signs of abating. Americans everywhere were out of work. Millions had just taken to the streets to protest the murder of George Floyd, and the then occupant of the White House seemed intent not on bringing people together but on tearing down some of the basic values and institutional foundations of our democracy.

One manas trash is another manas treasure, so goes the saying. That is certainly evident through the rise of exchanges on platforms such as Olio, Facebook Marketplace and Nextdoor, where people happily take their neighboursa unwanted goods off their hands. Sometimes items are new or as good as new; sometimes they are a piece of furniture to upcycle and breathe new life into.

From saving money to helping the planet, many people turn to volunteer-run online communities focused on goods that would otherwise go to landfill, rather than head to Ikea. Searches for the term aFreecyclea have increased 22% from July 2018 to July 2021, while the number of people Googling awhere can I find free stuff?a shot up 800% over the same period, according to the data provider SEMrush.

The next phase of the vaccination programme is extremely important.

Before Sundayas clA!sico, the former BarASSa striker on Maradona, Messi and why he thought head aflukeda it all the way to the top

Gary Lineker never really thought he was much of a footballer until a fortnight in Spain changed everything. The way he tells his story, it happened both suddenly and in slow motion: 34 years on he sees himself watching the ball drop into the net, wondering what was going on. It was the last day of January 1987 and he had just scored his third against Real Madrid at the Camp Nou, the first clA!sico hat-trick in 24 years. Eighteen days later, he got four against Spain at the BernabA(c)u. aAnd that,a he says, ais when it dawned on me that I was good at this.a

Hang on a minute. You had just been the first divisionas top scorer for the second year running. You had scored in the FA Cup final. You had joined Barcelona for APS2.8m. Only one player had cost more and that was Diego Maradona. Oh, and you had won the World Cup Golden Boot. aYeah,a Lineker says, abut I thought Iad fluked it: Iad got lots of tap-ins.a There is no grin or giggle, no irony nor false modesty. Which is why when itas suggested that 1986 was the perfect year in football, he replies: aMaybe if you include the first two months of 1987, if we go February to February.a

Mohamed Salahas status at Liverpool backed up by spectacular numbers
From https:

The forward is in a rich vein of form and will make club history if he scores away against Manchester United

JA1/4rgen Klopp had two things in common with AtlA(c)tico Madridas players in the eighth minute of Tuesdayas enthralling Champions League tie at Wanda Metropolitano. First, he didnat sense the danger when Andy Robertsonas cross sailed over their penalty area either. Second, he quickly realised that Mohamed Salah is, at present, perfecting the art of making the seemingly impossible possible.

No one studies Salah as intently on a daily basis or has managed him in as many games as Klopp, and yet those moments when the Liverpool forward becomes an unstoppable force retain a capacity to astonish. Manchester City felt it recently too. Last weekend it was Watfordas turn, followed by the supremely well-drilled champions of Spain as Salah became the first player in Liverpoolas 129-year history to score in nine successive matches. He will become the first in Liverpoolas history to score in three consecutive trips to Old Trafford should he make it 10 on Sunday.

Hyndman, once a professional player at Northampton, could scarcely believe his eyes. aWe decided to do 20-30 metre sprints to give him enough space to slow down. His times were very, very impressive.a It reinforced the testimony of one of Hyndmanas teaching colleagues, who had recently seen the skinny Radwan playing in a local under-16s game. aHe came back saying: aThis kid is ridiculously quick.aa
