Fashion: Uniqlo turns over a new leaf
British designer Orla Kiely's colourful stem prints have become part of the fashion vernacular, whether on umbrellas, tote bags or even doormats. And now, thanks to a second collaboration with high-street heroes Uniqlo, you can adorn yourself with them, too. Choose from T-shirts, hoodies, scarves and dresses and bloom in style. Uniqlo.co.uk
Face to watch: Zebra Katz
The NYC rapper-cum-fashion-world- favourite made some noise with menacingly minimalist debut single "Ima Read" and new track "W8WTF" is equally fierce. Catch him supporting Azealia Banks on her autumn UK tour

Heckling a politician at a major international competition as s/he is introduced at a medal ceremony, partic. used when said member of Parliament has introduced laws perceived to be detrimental to competitors
App watch: Teatime
Don't leave your cuppa to chance with this possibly fractionally over-zealous app, which helps you manage your work "tea group". Allowing you to set a tea-break alarm and store details of how each group member takes their brew, it will also select one person each time to be the designated tea-maker. From iTunes store, free

3. Isaac Hayes has died #AsTrueNowAsIt WasThen
4. How scary but brilliant would it be if a bear bit yr hand, dragged you 20 ft, then left you alone? Like a cabbie having Bowie in his taxi.
On the radar: Because some things are worth getting excited about…
