"Neither Spurs nor Fulham seem that excited about the prospect of Europa League football next season," writes Julius Scott. "If they qualify, do they have to play in it?" Short answer: No, with an if. Long answer: Yes, with a but. It's all a matter of the Uefa licence. In early spring clubs are invited by the FA to apply for a Uefa licence – essentially a piece of paper that confirms that a club's stadium is up to the job, that their finances are in order, that their vol-au-vents in the directors' box meet Uefa-approved standards, that sort of thing. In order to play in the Champions League or the Europa League clubs have to have a Uefa licence and the list of those who have applied and meet the criteria is sent off to Uefa in June. A club not wanting to participate in Europe the following season, for whatever reason, therefore has a very simple get-out – just don't apply for a licence. In that case, should a club without a licence qualify in the Champions League or Europa … [Read more...] about Do Tottenham and Fulham have to play in the Europa League?

Every few months, we get more series starring women worth looking up to: superheroes who work to fight sexism in the workplace by day and evil by night, hard-boiled detectives who battle to avert crises both public and personal, teenagers trying to build a kinder world free of prejudice. But there’s a fly in the ointment, and she’s wearing clown makeup. Harley Quinn is the best-selling female character in comics, and she’s casually homicidal, gleefully amoral, and mentally unbalanced. There was a time when she was a mental-health professional, but she shredded her Hippocratic Oath when she hopped into bed with a mass-murdering, psychopathic patient and began a crime spree that would make Bonnie and Clyde wince. In the 22 years since she first entered our world as a one-off character in a … [Read more...] about The Hidden Story of Harley Quinn and How She Became the Superhero World’s Most Successful Woman
Jim Brainard is keeping a promise that the United States broke. Brainard, mayor of Carmel, Indiana, a suburban city just north of Indianapolis, has pushed his town to make a variety of changes to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. City vehicles are now hybrids or run on biofuel. About 800 streetlights have been retrofitted with LED bulbs. Roundabouts in 122 intersections replaced traffic lights, a change that means cars don't burn gas while idling at a stop. "Of course, it would be ideal to set some national standards, but a lot of regulation on things that impact the environment is done at the state and local level, so we can have a huge impact," he said. Brainard is part of a growing coalition of leaders at the city, state and business levels who have remained committed to reducing carbon emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, despite President Donald Trump's announcement in 2017 that he plans to quit the climate accord. Those efforts are making a difference. A new report … [Read more...] about City of LED lights: How Carmel, Indiana, and other U.S. cities are trying to live up to the Paris Agreement
The protests started almost immediately after the presidential election. An artist named Annette Lemieux emailed the Whitney Museum and asked that her installation Left Right Left Right — a series of life-size photographs of raised fists turned into protest signs — be turned upside down. The artist Jonathan Horowitz and some friends started an Instagram feed called @dear_ivanka, attempting to directly appeal to the soon-to-be First Daughter and shame her into pushing her father away from the Bannonite brink. The artist Richard Prince refunded her money for a piece that she bought, then put out a statement that was intended to de-authenticate it. Sam Durant’s light-box sculpture, which read END WHITE SUPREMACY, was hoisted onto the façade of Paula Cooper Gallery in Chelsea (where it first appeared in the remarkably different context of Obama’s election in 2008), and another edition of it was set up by the gallery Blum & Poe to greet visitors at the Miami … [Read more...] about Is Political Art the Only Art That Matters Now?
