Could this affect my career? What if it never grows back?I noticed recently that my beard was looking a little less “deliberate aesthetic decision” and decidedly more “just released from a Thai prison”, so I accepted it was time to give it a trim before we headed off on holiday.I have a slight issue with beard trimming, in that one of my eyes is much, much better at its core function (seeing things) than the other.

‘a steampunk fever dream’: why carnival row is not the new game of thrones | television & radio

This new fantasy features Cara Delevingne, Orlando Bloom, penny farthings and lines like ‘Critch magic is a sin against the Martyr!’What I think we can all agree we’re wanting in these barren post-Game of Thrones times is a shonky fantasy epic set in half-fantasy Victorian London with Cara Delevingne as the lead, who is inexplicably a fairy, and inexplicably also Irish, and Orlando Bloom is there, too, trying very hard. Prayers and thanks, then, to the megacorporation gods at Amazon, who have pr...

Since their release in December 2016, Apple’s £199 wireless Bluetooth earbuds have become a status symbol among teens: after all, only the wealthy can afford tiny, untethered headphones that are so easy to lose. As an ordinary Welsh schoolboy, Carrington wasn’t rich enoug...

At 25, she won the Orange prize with her first novel, The Tiger’s Wife. In her long awaited follow-up, she tackles the history of the American westHow do you disrupt the mythology of the American west, with its campfires and cowboys, and its spirit of masculine self-reliance?

new life for switzerland’s hippy valley | travel

A bohemian mountain community in Ticino has rejected national-park status – and fast-track development – in favour of small grassroots projectsThe yellow postal bus lurches up the narrow, dead-end road that winds through Valle Onsernone, blasting its horn in warning as it rounds one cliff-hugging hairpin turn after another. Just a flimsy-looking guardrail separates us from the yawning ravine below. Heart somewhere in my throat, I wonder how many previous buses have tumbled over it into the churn...
