Women honored but the awards still aren’t diverse

Four women were honored during this year’s memorable Nobel Prize week. But the prestigious award still has a diversity problem.

The portrait of Alfred Nobel is seen at the desk prior to the announcement of the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize in the Nobel Institute in Oslo on October 9, 2020.

Of 931 individuals and 28 organizations to have won the prize since the awards began, just 16 are Black. No Black winners were named in 2020.

Twelve Black people have won the Peace Prize, three the Nobel Prize in Literature, and one the associated Prize in Economics awarded by Sweden’s central bank in Alfred Nobel’s honor. No Black recipients have ever won one of the science prizes.

On Monday, the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Harvey J. Alter, Michael Houghton and Charles M. Rice for the discovery of hepatitis C virus,

School closures probably aren’t leading to more deaths post-lockdown

Scientists are often quick to remind the public: no model is perfect.

After Professor Neil Ferguson’s computer model suggested in March that 500,000 people in the UK would die of the coronavirus without lockdown measures, the UK quickly abandoned its herd immunity strategy and resorted to shutting down schools and businesses.

A June review in the journal Nature showed that some researchers were able to reproduce Ferguson’s findings, but software engineers said the code was messy and some public-health experts said the results were unreliable.  

One finding in particular didn’t seem to make sense: The model showed that closing UK schools and universities during a lockdown actually led to more COVID-19 deaths than if schools had stayed open.

A new peer-reviewed report published in the BMJ on Wednesday suggests that takeaway could be accurate.

“Our first thought was that it was a mistake, but after a little work on the

Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young say exes aren’t invited to their wedding

Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young are keeping their wedding guest list small, and that means there’s no room for their exes.

El Moussa and his ex-wife, Christina Anstead, rose to fame as the hosts of HGTV’s “Flip or Flop.” The former couple share daughter Taylor, 10, and son Brayden, 5. Despite their amicable relationship, Anstead won’t be getting an invitation to El Moussa’s nuptials.

“No, no exes at the wedding,” El Moussa, 39, told “Entertainment Tonight.” “Small, less distractions, more intimate, better conversations with the people around us. You know, we just think smaller is better.” While he and Young both star in TV series, El Moussa told the outlet there won’t be cameras on hand for the big day.

“Just intimate, with our best friends and family,” Young, 33, added. “We’re gonna have to be strict with our list.”

Amazon picking up its Lord of the Rings series was as transparent a grab as one could imagine for the vacuum left by the wildly successful Game of Thrones.

But Tolkien fans are up in arms following rumours that the billion-dollar show could be rather raunchier than the source material.

Tolkien site TheOneRing has picked up on a number of casting call and crew-member additions to the series, which, like Peter Jackson’s LOTR movies, is being filmed in New Zealand.

Firstly, there is a casting call from Kiwi agency BGT, which is seeking ‘talent who are comfortable with partial or full nudity’ for background roles.

How The City’s Retail Witnessed A ‘Christmas’ Miracle, And Why Shopping Malls Aren’t Dying

Amid Hong Kong’s retail sales slump since last year’s social unrest, statistics have not shown favor to the city’s economic conditions, owing to the lack of tourism and continued political economy divide. The Census and Statistics Department revealed the total retail sales for August 2020 declined by 13.1% year-on-year, whereby the first eight months of the year saw a 30.2% negative in sales.

The largest category affected was of food and alcoholic drinks due to the third wave’s social distancing measures and dining regulations, which in effect spurred supermarket sales by 10.8% inspiring an additional uplift of 10.1% in electrical and other consumer durable goods for stay-at-home cooking. 

Yet, retailers and landlords have shown resilience as they had become well accustomed to the inevitable waves of Coronavirus cases causing suspension in several trades.

‘Abused women aren’t allowed to be angry’

Oscar-nominated British actress Samantha Morton has said she is “fuming” about how society treats abused women, like her late mother.

The star reflected on her difficult childhood, in and out of care homes, and her relationships with her parents for BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs.

She said she “wouldn’t be who I am today” without her mum Pamela, whom she was unable to live with as a child.

“But I am fuming at how society behaves around mental health issues for women.”

She added: “My mum had a very, very traumatic childhood. And it’s fascinating now as a mother and as a woman growing up to go ‘wow’.”

‘Things weren’t talked about’

She described her mother, whom she said was abused as a child, as “kind, subservient. vulnerable, funny” and “beautiful”, but noted how nobody else had a good word
