Tacos: The 2017 food trend we can all get behind

I can’t tell you how little I wanted to like Breddos. The new taqueria in Clerkenwell has the restaurant version of a punchable face. It is tiny, one step up from the shack in a car park that was its original incarnation. Most of the seats – sorry, stools, no chairs with backs in these parts – are around a large communal table or crammed against the edges of the room. The single loo opens more or less directly onto the eating area. When you arrive you are told there’s…

Education leaders challenge Trump assertion that students are ‘deprived of all knowledge’

his first remarks on education after being sworn into office, President Donald Trump asserted in his inaugural address Friday that the nation’s education system is “flush with cash” and that its children are being “deprived of all knowledge.” Not deprived of some knowledge, or even most knowledge. But deprived of all knowledge. It is impossible to dismiss what he said as a misstatement, or that it was an off-the-cuff comment made in the heat of a campaign speech. Inaugural addresses are written for posterity, and every word is mulled over, reviewed…

Batman Kohli has all the gadgets

India are slowly but steadily becoming like the coolest things in the world: Batman’s gadgets. The comics, cartoons, graphic novels and movies take a unanimous stand in depicting them as some of the most resourceful tools ever imagined. It may be too soon to confirm that Virat Kohli and his men could be seen in much the same way. Just as it would be improper not to give them credit for the tough Test cricket they have played since their tour of Australia in 2014-15. Four multi-match Test series played,…

THE 2016 CFDA/VOGUE FASHION FUND AWARD CEREMONY WAS ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS

Perhaps it was fitting that designer Laura Vassar wore white to the 2016 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Gala on Monday night. When Vassar and her husband Kristopher Brock took the stage to accept the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award for their line, Brock Collection, their ebullient speech gave the room the vibe of a wedding reception. “In 2011, a student at Parsons dropped out of a class three weeks after the semester started, which allowed me — on the waitlist — to take his seat in the class, where I met my…

All you need to know about Google’s Pixel smartphone

Google officially upped the stakes in the smartphone market with its big event yesterday, where it launched the new #madebygoogle smartphone – The Pixel. With a 12.3 mp camera, 4GB RAM and a full-metal body, Google is betting big on specs and its ‘home-made’ appeal (which usually works better with cookies) to bring in customers. This comes at a time when Apple has been roaming unfettered in the market – what with Samsung’s S7 getting too hot to handle (not in a good way). Thankfully, it’s also got the 3.5mm…

All the phones you can buy instead of the Samsung Note 7

From being called ‘ISIS’ favourite phone’ to getting its name on the ‘no-fly’ list, it’s been a rocky ride for the Samsung Note 7. The Korean major’s flagship phone has been blowing up left and right, and the worst part is Samsung, according to most recent reports, hasn’t even been able to identify the problem. Even the recall didn’t work. This, despite thousands of its engineers working overtime to trace the spark. Samsung finally called it quits on its shaky relationship with the Note 7 and decided to kill the model…

This is not a humblebrag: My kid won’t eat junk food and it’s all my fault

“Chicken nuggets or fish sticks?” I pulled the plastic bags out of the freezer and held them up. By Thursday night after a long day at work during my busy season, I had no shame. My 5-year-old, Colin (not his real name), looked up from his Legos, strewn across the kitchen floor. “I don’t like those. Can I have salmon?” I sighed and tossed the bags back in the freezer, knowing I had only myself to blame for his pickiness. When I was pregnant I had bought all the books, read…
