French audiences develop a taste for window theatre

PARIS - French actress Isabelle Cagnat is pining to get back on stage once the pandemic is over, but on Sunday she had to be content with performing from behind the windows of a fashion boutique. Outside the hip apparel store in central Paris, a small crowd of several dozen people gathered under a cold grey sky, some passers-by, others who had seen notices on social media. Organisers implored the audience to stand well apart to avoid trouble with police. "It's...

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency FAQs

Much has been written about cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Many see these as technologies of the future, but they are very much technologies of today. Here is a kind of digital 101 to give you the basic run down on both.  What are cryptocurrencies? Cryptocurrencies are a digital form of currency. Like regular money, they can be traded and used to buy goods or services, from those outlets which accept them. However, they do not exist physically and are not issued by a central bank.  Daniel Lar...

Blame game starts early as Hartlepool election looms

WESTMINSTER (Labour Buzz) - Keir Starmer’s first big voting test getting near with next month’s Hartlepool by-election, and it’s not going well. A new poll gives the Tories a seven-point lead in a seat which Jeremy Corbyn won in both 2017 and 2019. Barring a miracle, therefore, it seems the Conservatives are likely to see their majority get even fatter next month. All that’s left, therefore, is to decide who is to blame. Fortunately, that’s one of Labour Twitter’s favourite pass times.  For Gua...
