Adam Driver: ‘Lots of things have been said about my face’ 29.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
As Lena Dunham’s love interest in Girls, actor Adam Driver represents a new kind of male. Now starring with Ben Stiller in Noah Baumbach’s new film, here the ex-marine discusses sex scenes, the internet and his theatre group for troops Adam Driver, 31, is the Emmy-nominated star from the HBO series Girls , in which he plays Hannah Horvath’s (Lena Dunham) on-off love interest Adam Sackler. As Sackler, Driver combines memorable looks (6ft 3in frame, raven hair, a face like human origami), with an intensity that seems part apocalyptic internalised rage, part brittle vulnerability, part no-nonsense brio, leading many to cite him as a new kind of modern screen male. Driver was raised in Mishawaka, Indiana, by a paralegal mother and Baptist minister stepfather. After 9/11, he joined the US marines, but before being deployed to Iraq he broke his sternum during an exercise and was medically discharged. Driver has since founded the non-profit organisation Arts in the Armed Forces , which performs theatre for ...

The war against humanities at Britain's universities 29.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Higher education is stuffed with overpaid administrators squeezing every ounce of efficiency out of lecturers and focusing on the ‘profitable’ areas of science, technology, engineering and maths. Are the humanities at risk of being wiped out? A war is being waged within the cloistered world of academia, a war whose repercussions will be felt down through the generations. Long one of Britain’s global success stories, our universities are under attack by an austerity-obsessed government looking to maintain the excellence of our institutions at a fraction of the cost. The dictates of the market economy have been unleashed upon our once-sacred seats of learning, and academics wear the haunted looks of the terminally battle-scarred. With the threat of further cuts to come whichever side wins the general election, and none of the major parties promising to stand in the way of the corporate colonisation of education, the debate has reached an unseemly head, with many academics in open revolt and professional ...

12 moments that made the modern music festival 29.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Today’s thriving festival culture has its roots in the outdoor folk and jazz gatherings of the early 1960s. Here are 12 key moments in the evolution of an ongoing cultural phenomenon Competition: win tickets to the festival of your choice this summer The Newport folk festival grew out of the popular Newport jazz festival, a pioneering outdoor summer event founded by promoter George Wein in 1954. It was inspired by classical music festivals that had taken root over the previous century, bringing together middle-class audiences to appreciate high art. Five years later, Wein started the folk festival with a board of musicians that included Pete Seeger, who performed at the first event alongside Joan Baez and Earl Scruggs; the festival would later become famous as the place where Dylan “went electric” . Wein also pioneered corporate sponsorship at gigs, and championed racial integration at his festivals – it spoke volumes that his wife, Joyce, was rarely allowed by his side at other events because she was ...

Feroze Gujral- More than just a glamorous face 29.3.2015 DNA: Popular News
Feroze Gujral is at the open air cafe. Everywhere, there are sharply-dressed people networking fiercely as they get their nicotine fix. Gujral weaves through with the practised ease of a habitué – after all, the 1990s super-model, wife of architect Mohit Gujral and daughter in-law of artist Satish Gujral, is one of the pillars of the capital’s glamour set. Trailing in Gujral’s glamorous wake are artists Shilpa Gupta and Rashid Rana, and curator Natasha Ginwala — they announced at the India Art Fair this January, that the Gujral Foundation supported art project, My East Is Your West, has been accepted as an official collateral event at the Venice Biennale, which begins in May. It’s a historical event, being the first collaborative art exhibition at the world’s oldest and largest international art event by the two South Asian countries, who share history and culture but whose recent relations have been marked by suspicion and misunderstanding. Interestingly, neither India nor Pakistan has a national ...

'Something nasty is stirring': inside Nigel Farage's battle for South Thanet 28.3.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
First the Ukip leader declared his candidacy, then Al Murray and the Prophet Zebadiah of Ooog. Who will win? Constituent Marina O’Loughlin joins the protesters on the campaign trail The decision was made one December afternoon as we poked bare toes into the clean, golden sand outside the Pavilion on Broadstairs seafront . The beach curved around us and the sun shone while the rest of the UK shivered under grey skies and sleet. Why the hell, we asked ourselves, aren’t we living here? Our inner-city children spent their lives, whey-faced, staring at various screens, our tiny flat cost a king’s ransom, and this was all so beautiful: why weren’t we enjoying this Swallows and Amazons life, all cream teas and crab sandwiches? Nine years later, I realise that, despite its gorgeous location, the Pavilion is a shitehole boozer that sells horrible food, the children are still stuck to their screens, despite our best efforts (including joining the sailing club: brief pause for the hollowest of laughs at that one), ...
