With the heat on medium-high, warm the rest of the oil in the same pan. Dust the cheeks in seasoned flour, then brown in batches and transfer to the veg bowl. Deglaze the pan with cider, scraping up any bits, then add the stock, vegetables and meat. Season, add the bouquet garni and bring to a simmer. Partially cover and cook for three hours, until the meat is very tender. Lift out the meat and keep warm. Reduce the sauce to thicken slightly, remove from the heat and stir in the mustard and cream. Return the meat to the sauce, warm gently, season to taste and add parsley. Serve with mash and wilted greens.
Apologies, incidentally, to anybody who was on the 2239 train from Victoria to Faversham last night and endured me snoring my way past my stop and onto Faversham, where I found out all the trains had done one and I needed to get a £40 taxi. Another triumphant Friday night for the Bobmeister!
4.38pm “I told all my Boro mates (and a few others) that we should have bought Beattie, they all poo-poohed me. Now look,” says Mike Ollier, surveying a Facebook page that says ‘You have no friends’. Beattie was, I agree, such a smart signing by Pulis.
To make the sauce, finely chop the herbs and put in a bowl with the capers, anchovies and garlic. Add the mustard, seasoning and vinegar, toss, then add enough oil to loosen the mix to a spoonable consistency.
Nuclear waste was tipped in at the top of B41 once it was erected and then allowed to fall to the bottom. Later, when it was realised that pieces of aluminium and magnesium among this waste could catch fire and cause widespread contamination, inert argon gas had to be pumped in to smother potential blazes. And so, for the past 60 years, building B41 has remained in this state, its highly radioactive contents mingling and reacting with each other. Now engineers have been told to clear it up.
4.33pm Five games, four goals. Best league in the world! “Vela’s wearing luminous lime green boots,” notes David Hytner. “I suppose somebody has to now that Nicklas Bendtner appears to be back to less garish colours.” I wonder whether that was Bendtner’s decision, or whether Arsene Wenger gently pointed out that he looked like a complete tool.
Ohio’s fifth-largest city, loba negra mobi home to the NBA legend LeBron James, and surrounding Summit county, population 540,000, were scheduled to be the first of about 2,000 governments scheduled to go to trial against drugmakers next month, including Purdue. Local officials sought damages from the manufacturers they hold responsible.
“You can get a call someone has overdosed and you get there, you can bring them back with Narcan [an overdose antidote]. Then you’ll go to the same address in the afternoon,” Tucker said. “Or you go to that address in the morning and the two parents have overdosed and there’s a child there. It’s just horrible. It really is.”
4.44pm So Stoke, who were six points behind Portsmouth ten minutes ago, are now only three goals behind them. They also, if they win, go above Tottenham who – and you’ll like this – would go fourth from bottom.
Rifkin’s Festival was backed by Spanish media giant Mediapro (which has participated in Allen films including Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris) as Allen has become increasingly shunned in the US after Farrow’s allegations against him, which he denies. Publication of his memoir Apropos of Nothing was cancelled by Hachette after staff protests, and it was rapidly picked up by another publisher, Arcade. Film-maker Spike Lee issued an apology after defending Allen in a radio interview, writing on social media “My words were WRONG.”
During the miners’ strike of 1972, the nation’s nuclear plants were run at full stretch in order to supply electricity to a beleaguered nation. As a result, it proved impossible to process all the waste that was being generated. Cladding and fuel were simply thrown into B38’s cooling ponds and left to disintegrate.
“That is a very large financial commitment. Nevertheless it would be wrong to dismiss nuclear energy out of hand. Modern reactors are indeed very different creations compared to the first reactors that were built at Sellafield in the 1940s and 1950s. New ones produce relatively little waste, will be easy to decommission and are intrinsically clean and safe. Convincing the public of these points will not be easy, however.”
Starring Elena Anaya, Louis Garrel and Gina Gershon, Rifkin’s Festival was shot in and around the city in 2019, and according to the plot synopsis takes place during the festival itself. “It tells the story of a married American couple who go to the San Sebastián festival and get caught up in the magic of the event, the beauty and charm of the city and the fantasy of movies. She has an affair with a brilliant French movie director, and he falls in love with a beautiful Spanish woman who lives there.”
4.49pm: Stoke 2-2 Portsmouth (Shawcross og 87) Another huge goal in what is surely the greatest game since Italy and West Germany in 1970: Ryan Shawcross turns the ball into his own net, and Portsmouth get something resembling their just deserts.
