The 1975 is a British pop band, not a graduate seminar’s sparsely attended lecture series, though the titles of its most recent albums certainly invite that clarification. The bold, eclectic “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships” from 2018 found the verbose, self-aware frontman Matty Healy moving deftly between arena-sized anthems and confessional ballads, serving up cheeky Twitter-era bons mots on the pitfalls of fame, mortality and contemporary life. (“Danny says we’re living in a simulation,” he sang , “but he works in a petrol station.”) Now, a year and a half later, comes the 200-level curriculum: “Notes on a Conditional Form.” As the group has evolved beyond the tuneful, glammy emo-pop of its 2013 self-titled debut, the 1975 — Healy, the multi-instrumentalist George Daniel, the guitarist Adam Hann and the bassist Ross MacDonald — has repositioned itself as a band increasingly porous to the historical present and just about every genre of music that exists within it. … [Read more...] about The 1975: Self-Aware, Self-Indulgent and, Yes, Sincere
A Chinese official told Newsweek that Beijing rejects the Pentagon 's characterization of growing People's Liberation Army capabilities in a new report, arguing that it was the United States stirring nuclear tensions, not China. The Department of Defense published its latest assessment on "Military and Security Developments Involving the People's Republic of China" on Wednesday, making note of a number of observations, including a growing Chinese nuclear weapons and ballistic missile force . The report estimated that the People's Liberation Army Rocket Force has already doubled its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) force from 150 to 300 and would seek to nearly quadruple its nuclear warhead from a current count of somewhere above 400 to 1,500 by 2035. But Liu Pengyu, spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C., argued that the report, "just like similar reports in the past, disregards facts and is filled with bias." "The U.S. is using this report to … [Read more...] about China calls U.S. top “nuclear threat” to world in reply to Pentagon report
Russia has made marginal gains in the eastern Ukrainian town of Bakhmut, a U.S. think tank has assessed, as clashes in the region have reportedly descended into trench warfare. In its daily update of Russia's war in Ukraine, the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) said that President Vladimir Putin 's troops remained unlikely to have advanced in Bakhmut at the tempo that Russian sources have claimed. Bakhmut, in Ukraine's eastern Donbas region, has been targeted by Russian forces for months, without much success, with clashes in the region intensifying in recent weeks against the backdrop of Ukraine's successful Kherson counteroffensive in the south. The ISW said Tuesday that geolocated footage shows that Russian forces made marginal advances southeast of Bakhmut , adding that it remains unable to confirm most other claimed gains around the town made since November 27. According to the think tank, some Russian milbloggers have made unsubstantiated claims that Russian … [Read more...] about Russia makes marginal gains as Bakhmut battle descends into trench warfare
Most of us have heard the statistic that almost 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce. While divorce is certainly not always the best option, it makes sense that couples might choose divorce instead of staying in a miserable marriage. However, one increasingly common alternative for finding pleasure with your spouse and reigniting the spark, is opening up your marriage. Since the pandemic, I've seen a considerable uptake in open monogamy inquiries. I've witnessed a 45 percent increase in inquiries about the subject in my therapy practice in California. And for those already in an open marriage, it seems to be working. A recent survey of Ashley Madison members revealed that those with an open monogamy agreement reported higher satisfaction in their relationships. In fact, 76 percent of those in open relationships said they were very fulfilled or somewhat fulfilled compared to 28 percent in closed relationships. Among those who are not yet in open relationships, 72 percent … [Read more...] about “I’m a sex therapist, these are 3 signs you should open your marriage”
Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered citizens a week-long paid vacation and has ordered new military checks to help stop the spread of the new coronavirus pandemic. In a televised address to the nation Wednesday, Putin declared a week-long national holiday lasting from March 28 to April 5 in the country of roughly 144 million people. Essential industries such as medical institutions, pharmacies, shops, banks, financial institutions, transportation, as well as government bodies at all levels will continue to work. "All recommendations must be followed," Putin said. "It is necessary to protect yourself and your loved ones, to show discipline and responsibility, and believe me, the safest thing now is to be at home." Russia so far has reported comparatively few cases of the new coronavirus disease. As of Tuesday, the Russian Ministry of Health recorded 658 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 29 recoveries and a single death. Putin warned, however, that Russians should not … [Read more...] about Putin Gives Russia Week Vacation, Tells Troops to Train to Stop Coronavirus
Iran has backed China's calls to investigate yet unfounded claims of the United States being the origin of the new coronavirus as an international blame game worsened over a pandemic that has infected more than 200,000 people across the globe. Iranian Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani lashed out on Twitter Wednesday against what he called the "typical way" in which some U.S. officials have emphasized China and its central Hubei province city of Wuhan as the likely place where the COVID-19 disease began and have blamed both Beijing and Tehran's governments for failing to stop its spread. Shamkhani argued this was being done by U.S. officials done in order to "evade responsibility" themselves. "Instead of leveling false accusations against China and Iran, U.S. officials should respond to international demands regarding its role in creating and spreading the coronavirus and the continuation of its crimes against the Iranian people by keeping in place the … [Read more...] about Iran Backs China, Calls to Look Into U.S. ‘Creation, Spread’ of Coronavirus
This month, two relatively small, obscure German ministries made a decision with strategic implications: They published draft set of rules for the construction of Germany's 5G network that permits Huawei to have an even greater role than it currently does. Reportedly, Chancellor Angela Merkel's office intervened to ensure Huawei would not necessarily be excluded . If left to stand, this decision represents nothing less than an abdication of German leadership in Europe, undermines long-term growth in Europe's most important economy and threatens the large American military presence in Germany. The draft rules published by Germany's Federal Network Agency and its Federal Office for Information Security, with input from Chancellor Merkel's office, do not explicitly rule out technology provided by China's Huawei or ZTE. Although the rules are still in draft form, they could be finalized later this year and ultimately lead to extensive German reliance—even more so than today—on … [Read more...] about Germany’s Refusal to Ban China’s Huawei From 5G Is Dangerous for the West
Flights to China on U.S. airlines, including United, Delta Air Lines and American Airlines, have been temporarily suspended, with those affected being offered travel waivers to rebook their flights without a fee. The latest cancellations come after the U.S. State Department raised its travel warning level to Level 4, the highest possible, advising U.S. citizens not to travel to China in view of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak which was first identified in Wuhan in the Hubei province. At least 11 cases of the virus have been confirmed in the U.S., with 146 cases confirmed outside of China in 23 countries, according to the latest report by the World Health Organization (WHO), which declared the virus a global public health emergency on Thursday. "More cases are likely to be identified in the coming days, including more cases in the United States. It's also likely that person-to-person spread will continue to occur, including in the United States," the U.S. Centers for Disease … [Read more...] about Are Flights to China Canceled Due to Coronavirus?
