The Conservatives have promised to give people living near proposed windfarms the final say on applications. Will the future of renewable energy in the UK come down to a matter of taste?
The village of Redwick lies on the outskirts of Newport, a small, pretty run of houses whose position on the Caldicot and Wentloog Levels serves as a reminder of the force of both humans and environment: on the horizon lies the city’s docks, while a scratchpost at the ancient parish church is marked with a reminder of just how high the waters rose in the Bristol Channel flood of 1607.
A year and a half ago, the village’s skyline shifted once again, when Newport council granted permission to Renewable Energy Systems (RES) to construct a wind turbine about 1.5km north-west of Redwick – an addition to the two turbines installed in 2011 at the nearby Tesco distribution centre. The Longlands Lane wind turbine was erected on 29 November last year, and generated its first electricity within a month. It is hoped it will be capable of providing enough electricity to meet the needs of around 800 homes.
Fashion hit or sartorial disaster? Our judges put Kanye West, Shia LaBeouf, Aidan Turner, Lewis Hamilton and Jared Leto under the style microscope
Contemporary curating has become an absurdity. Outfits are curated. Salads are curated. Twitter feeds are curated. Bennington College in Vermont invites prospective students to curate their applications. Lorde was appointed “sole curator” of the most recent Hunger Games film’s soundtrack. Everyone is a curator these days. Lakehead Superior State University in Michigan has placed “curator”, “curated” and “to curate” on its 2015 list of banished words. “Since when does one ‘curate’ a list of wine or a selection of salami?” asks StiperGuy on the message board of popular foodie site Chowhound.com. “You curate a museum, or perhaps the art collection of a billionaire.”
Yet to examine the etymology and history of the word “curate” is to find a direct, fascinating link between the professional curator and her pop culture counterpart, engaged in the activity of selecting and displaying. It is also to discover important, perhaps unsettling things about how we currently understand value, and ourselves.
In possibly his biggest part yet, the 32-year-old British actor’s lovely face is largely hidden from view. Which is a real shame
Charlie Cox has an undeniably cute face. If I had to describe it, I would go for boyishly handsome, lovely, appealing. It is open, and devoid of guile, which means you trust it – and whatever character he happens to be playing. His everyman appeal means you may not have realised how many times you’ve seen him on screen; in Sky Atlantic’s Boardwalk Empire, for example, playing Irish immigrant Owen Slater, and in The Theory Of Everything, playing Jonathan Hellyer Jones.
But now, in possibly his biggest part yet, the 32-year-old Brit actor’s lovely face is largely hidden from view. He is starring as Marvel’s blind and masked superhero, Daredevil (all 13 episodes are on Netflix). The decision to give the job to “some random English guy who didn’t grow up on comics is probably not ideal for many of the fans”, Cox has said, but he needn’t worry: he’s selling it utterly. US audiences are aflutter at the first non-American to play the role of the Man Without Fear.
The sprinter’s love of fried chicken is legendary, but he often starts his day with this Jamaican classic.
Slice and saute an onion in vegetable oil until translucent, then add half a red pepper, diced, one large tomato, deseeded and diced, a teaspoon of finely chopped chilli (or to taste), a finely chopped clove of garlic, a chopped spring onion, a quarter-teaspoon of black pepper and the leaves from two thyme sprigs. Cook gently, stirring often, for six to eight minutes, then add 200g soaked and chopped salt fish (soak for 12 hours in several changes of cold water, rinse, then simmer for 20 minutes to remove the salt; or use fresh white fish and add a pinch of salt). Stir and add a 300g can of ackee, drained and rinsed. Stir once (ackee turns to mush if stirred too much), cover and leave on a low heat for four to five minutes, to warm through. Serve hot.
