Arts and Entertainment Channel 4's series claims to shed light on life on benefits for residents of the street, including Smoggy pictured here

No one's done much to help the residents of James Turner Street in Birmingham, now forever rechristened Benefits Street, thanks to Channel 4's controversial new documentary series. Despite – or maybe because of – the Twitter death threats, accusations of betrayal and media uproar, which followed its first broadcast, Channel 4 has defied calls for the series to be pulled. Did it hope this second episode would change some minds?

Algeria struggle to match the fame of Belloumi and the shame of Spain '82

When England line up against Algeria in Cape Town on Friday they should be grateful the shot-shy Desert Foxes have found no successor to their legendary forward Lakhdar Belloumi. It was Belloumi whose strike earned Algeria a stunning 2-1 victory over reigning European champions West Germany on their World Cup debut at Spain '82, and, from a distance of almost three decades, he does not hesitate to nominate that team as "the best generation of Algerian players of all time".

Saadane prefers to keep his tactics under wraps as Algeria play it safe

Algeria coach Rabah Saadane is remaining tight-lipped over his tactical approach to his side's World Cup opener against Slovenia. The north Africans face the European outsiders in Polokwane on 13 June, before coming up against their tougher opponents in Group C – England and then the United States.

Capello takes advice from fellow managers

England coach Fabio Capello has sought the advice of fellow managers in preparing for the World Cup but insists he will ultimately rely on "my decisions and style."

Baldini looks on as Algeria suffer Ireland thrashing

Algeria may have qualified for the World Cup but on the basis of last night's match in Dublin, Ireland are far more worthy of that honour. The Africans were beaten 3-0 and that flattered them. Fabio Capello will not be losing any sleep over these particular opponents.

Who Was Jacques Derrida? An Intellectual Biography, By David Mikics

Since his death in 2004, it's fair to say that the reputation of Jacques Derrida has been in a slow but steady decline. This much has been to the delight of his critics (mainly British or American), who during his lifetime regarded him as a fraud and a charlatan or, worse still, a kind of guru figure whose only creed was a relentless carping nihilism. By the same token, Derrida's critics will argue that there is also something slightly dated and faded about "deconstructionism", the philosophical school Derrida allegedly founded. The accepted wisdom is that these days this pseudo-philosophy persists only in modish new universities where professors of media or cultural studies have run out things to say about Marxism.
