Manchester City’s Erling Haaland strikes twice on league debut in win at West Ham | premier league

It is going to become a familiar sight this season: Kevin De Bruyne picking the ball up in the middle of the pitch, lifting his head and playing a defense-shredding pass through for Erling Haaland to race away from his markers and slot a clinical finish past a despairing goalkeeper.Who said that Pep Guardiola doesn't know what to do with a striker? For Manchester City, the early evidence is that their new No 9 is not going to disrupt Guardiola's passing machine. The champions outclassed a West Ham side limp from start to finish and eased their way to a sleepy 2-0 victory thanks to two from Haaland, who followed up a first-half penalty with the kind of goal that suggests he is already on the same wavelength as his new teammates.For City, the focus on the summer was finding ways to stay...

Tuning out of Triple J: why Australia’s youth station is losing its young listeners | Radio

For more than a decade, it's been something of a national pastime to proclaim the irrelevance of Triple J. But while Australia's national youth broadcaster has faced some controversies in that time – over the timing of its annual Hottest 100 countdown, softball interviews of far- right figures and, most recently, a regrettable tweet – it's held on remarkably well to its core demographic of 18-to-24-year-old listeners.Until now. last month, the fourth year's radio ratings survey confirmed that Triple J has been shedding those listeners, with its audience share in that demographic dropping by an average of 2.5% across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide between late April and late June. (Audience share is a metric theoretically unaffected by overall upward or downward trends...

That same year, a white poet called Michael Derrick Hudson was found to be submitting poems to literary journals using the name Yi-Fen Chou. Hudson admitted to using the pseudonym whenever a poem of his was rejected under his real name.This type of incident is a central concern in Elaine Hsieh Chou's debut novel disorientation.

Apple asks suppliers in Taiwan to label products as made in China – report | Manzana

Apple has reportedly asked Taiwan-based suppliers to label their products as being produced in China, in an effort to avoid disruption from strict Chinese customs inspections resulting from the visit of US congresswoman Nancy Pelosi to Taipei.According to Nikkei, the company has asked manufacturers on the island to label components bound for mainland China as made in “Chinese Taipei” or “Taiwan, China”. The labels are required in order to comply with a longstanding but previously unenforced rule that requires imported goods to suggest the island is part of the People's Republic of China.The phrase “Made in Taiwan” can lead to delays, fines, and even the rejection of an entire shipment under the rule. But Taiwan itself requires exports to be labeled with the point of origin: either the...
