Lots of congratulations for Smith for setting it up and King, who scored against Watford in October, has done it again. It's 1-1. The opening third of this season Watford had their best start to a top-flight campaign since the glory days of Graham Taylor in the mid 1980s.

It is a gamble and tricky. Has got to do it, get close and parry the jab. Rip the right hand over. Levine, good cornering. I boxed him in the 1980s in the young England team. Mick Hall joined him after spending time with other trainers in the north-west.

I think that we can see an isolationist policy developing. This is something that has been consistent in Donald Trump is ideology since the 1980s. It's something that is clearly spanned the decades for him.

A good, rear-drive Alfa Romeo saloon has been a long time coming, but it’s finally here in the Giulia. Good enough to beat the BMW 3 Series and Jaguar XE in diesel guise? The Alfa Romeo Giulia has been such a long time coming that there’s no little irony that I’m stuck waiting for it now. Stuck in the office, staring at the ceiling. Waiting and staring. How long have I been waiting? Well, it has been five years since the Alfa 159 dropped, old and unloved, off a production line cliff face. But it represented only part of the waiting period, not its beginning. Before that, there was the 156 and the 155. Both were pretty. One was good. Neither, though, was the front-engined, rear-wheel-drive saloon that we felt Alfa should be building if it wanted to be Italy’s BMW and a proper volume contender. No matter that it hadnt actually built such a car since Fiat massaged the ailing brand into Lancia in the mid-1980s.

Hong Kong was no stranger to decorative lights when Tsim Sha Tsui East first started to dress up for the festive winter in the 1980s, but it was the seasonal sparkle that drew unprecedented crowds to the tune of hundreds of thousands. At first there werent many lights, recalled Terence Wong Kim-shan, a long-time designer of the districts decorations. So when you make Christmas lights that come in many colours, many people would come. In time, the number...

In the final days before inauguration , Donald Trumps top aides huddled in hushed meetings in New York City and a cookie-cutter federal building near the White House to struggle over a key unsettled question: Who exactly would have access to the new President once he moves into the White House? The businessman turned politician spent weeks after the election playing host to a large and diverse set of visitors, from 1980s celebrities to Kanye West to corporate CEOs to politicians of all stripes. At the same time, he has maintained an open-door policy for top aides, resisting efforts by staff and even his wife to curtail phone calls at all hours. More often than not, this time with Trump is more than just social. Unlike the man he replaces, Trump likes to think out loud and in company, and has been known for years to ask just about everyone he encounters for their advice, whether they be reporters seeking an interview or celebrities looking for a photo op.

I got to experience the 1980s with big, wide open eyes. As I got older, I knew I had to have one of these. Not only is it a design icon, but it also carries a fond memory of my transition here. Photo by Dan Brunn 4. Art I have always had an affinity towards the arts. As a kid I used to draw, paint, and generally disassemble things. I have come to realize how vital art really is, and I have been fortunate enough to surround myself with artwork by amazingly talented artists. This wall in my home is covered with some of my favorites, and many of the artists are my personal friends. I am humbled! Photo by Brandon Shigeta 5. Guitars Music is an integral part to my creativity. Though I am by no means a professional guitarist, I do especially enjoy my guitar collection. Each one is so inspiring, and beautiful in its own right, carrying a special meaning and memory. Here is my John Lennon Limited Edition Rickenbacker 325 reissue. It’s a real pain to play on, being a short scale, but its authenticity wins my heart.

Certain guiding principles have proven instrumental in shaping our views of the world. Among them, for many Americans and Russians, is the belief that Russia and the U.S. are natural enemies, and will remain so. For many, that perspective did not change following the breakup of the Soviet Union, with most Americans viewing the Russians as vanquished villains, and with many Russians continuing to view the U.S. -- and the West more generally -- with great contempt and suspicion. Unbeknownst to many in the West, a large percentage of Russians were curious about and eager for a friendship with America during Perestroika in the 1980s, and after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Perhaps fewer Americans had an open mind at the time about the prospect for a warmer relationship with Russia. Since then, numerous attempts have been made to reset bilateral relations in a meaningful way.

Members of the UK Merchant Navy have been awarded that the Tory relevant to campaign medals. I would now like to turn to the issue of homosexuality in the Merchant Navy. Between 1950 and the 1980s, life at sea was one of the few opportunities for gay men to be themselves. They were able to embrace life at sea with enthusiasm and often more confidence than at home on land, often taking part in performances, crew shows, being members of the catering staff, and so on.

While making Edge Of Tomorrow , Liman spent so long working out how to shoot a beach scene that the scheduled two-week shoot stretched on for two months. Liman's a unique filmmaker, alright, and few would deny that, when he's on the top of his game, his movies are great: Edge Of Tomorrow being a case in point. That movie's star, Tom Cruise, is reuniting with Liman for the forthcoming American Made , the true(ish) story of a former airline pilot who became a drug smuggler and then a undercover operative for the US government in the 1980s. Cruise will play that pilot, smuggler and operative - a role which, we hope, allows him to ride motorcycles and run with his fingertips outstretched like in all his other films. Domhnall Gleeson and Jesse Plemons also star. We're really looking forward to this one. 16. Wonder R J Palacio’s Wonder is a book we’ve written about before on this site, a tremendous piece of work aimed primarily at younger readers.

It is fitting that President Obama would bookend his official press conferences with an unscripted comment and nod to his mixed-race heritage. Obama had originally campaigned for the presidency, in part, on the complexity of his racial background. As the brown-skinned son of a white woman from Kansas and a black man from Kenya, he offered his candidacy as the symbol of hope and harmony for our country. I was elated by his message as a woman who is also mixed-race and who grew up lonely in my silence about my own racially and culturally complicated background. We live in a country that subscribes to the one drop rule which insists that one drop of "black" blood defines you as black. So, there wasn't room in America's imagination in the 1980s for a young woman with brown skin and blue eyes to be both black and Danish, fully Afro-Viking. I was black.

LG did it again last year with the modular phone concept -- pushed by Google and then abandoned before it even made any click-together devices -- and the rumours regarding this year's update of LG's flagship phone suggest that the entire modular concept has been abandoned. Poor people who bought one less than a year ago hoping to see a well supported ecosystem of things to play with. They got a year. History repeating It seems pretty easy, in hindsight, to spot these micro trends. Anyone over the age of 40 will remember the 3D rush of the 1980s that wilted out in a matter of months because the glasses were terrible and there was zero content, the VR of the early 1990s that was cumbersome and heavy and exploded into nothing. Plus who can forget the enforced motion control games literally no one at all liked that Xbox and PlayStation owners had to pretend, for a bit, to like? Obviously you could now extrapolate this to the VR rush of today, but that might be a bit soon.

"I'm concerned about ... the moral fabric ... the things that he's said and done. I have two little daughters, and the things that he's said when he's up on the podium I find unsettling." Minneapolis, Minnesota Somalis started coming to Minneapolis in the 1980s. By 2013, the community had grown to 25,000 people, owning hundreds of businesses. Somalis skew Democratic but are active in both parties and, as VOA's Somali service learned, they are comfortable switching parties. Faduma Yusuf is a proud Republican who ran for the Minneapolis City Council in 2013. But she voted for Obama in 2008, then Mitt Romney in 2012. This year, she did not vote. "Once I saw Trump actually insulting my own Somali community, the immigrant community, and he labeled the people who came here to survive and have a better life for themselves and for their kids as terrorists," Yusuf said.

It's as natural as being right-handed, left-handed, the colour of your hair. I felt I could not pursue a career in politics because I was so afraid that I would be cast aside or prevented from doing it, exposed, whatever, because of who I was. That was in the late 1980s, early 1990s. That is why section 28 that was the effect it had.

In the early 1980s as I sweated through the chaotic corrugated iron squatter shanties up above Sham Shui Po, or pawed through the dark, damp grotto we called Kowloon City, I would always marvel at two things: first, how could families living in such primitive circumstances walk out every morning with their children in crisp ironed shirts and shorts? And second, why were these communities not railing against the excesses of the local rich, and clamouring for a more even distribution of wealth,...
