The facts of life: Seduction

There are five main ways to tell if someone is flirting with you: their eyes will flit around your face and body; they begin to mirror your actions; they raise their eyebrows when they first meet you (ever so slightly); their feet and hands will point towards you subconsciously; and their pupil size and blink rate increases.

'America's most influential journalist' dies

The man widely viewed as America's most influential political journalist, Tim Russert, the probing host of NBC's Meet the Press, died suddenly yesterday.

Harrison Ford: Whip hand

The jokes have been wearily predictable. The news that Harrison Ford is to return to the silver screen as Indiana Jones, some 18 years after what was billed as his Last Crusade, has prompted a deluge of dodgy ageist puns. The 66-year-old star is ironically rebranded as Indefatigable Jones, and the film, variously, as Raiders of the Lost Memories, The Saviour of a Lost Art, and The Temple of Zimmer. Then there are all the inevitable gags about whips being swapped for hips, as in replacement.

Matthew Norman: American democracy in all its filthy glory

A myriad of analogies have been lavished on Hillary Clinton as she has waged her desperate, demented, putrid and strangely magnificent rearguard over recent months.

White working class vote still eludes Obama

Obama turns to securing a victory in Indiana

Defeated in Pennsylvania, Barack Obama quickly turned his attention to the next opportunity to dispense with Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton in hopes of facing the Republican nominee-in-waiting.

Walking on Water, White Bear Theatre Club, London

A couple of years ago, eagle-eyed visitors to the Edinburgh Fringe were surprised to discover a doyenne of British film and stage, Susannah York, hiding away in a production of The Deluge at a minor venue of the city. Now, she's doing it again, this time appearing in the back room of the White Bear pub in Kennington, south London.
