Tech bros have been feeding the trolls – and women are paying the price | Arwa mahdawi

HHave you ever noticed how gigantic my jaw is? Strangely angular: as if I had swallowed a rhombus. I think it's pretty classy, ​​but it seems to annoy strangers on Twitter, who regularly send me comments about my jaw. These, by the way, are the educated strangers. Most of the messages I receive online are much more explicit, though unimaginative. "You should have aborted"; "Die faster, please"; threats of rape; the usual insult that rhymes with Jeremy Hunt. Mostly it's a manageable trickle of evil. Some days, however, the volume of online abuse will be quite overwhelming, even unbearable, and I will have to temporarily deactivate my Twitter account.I'm not trying to throw a pity party for myself. The most depressing thing about my experience is how common it is. More than a ...

NFL Week 14 takeaways: Rams-Cardinals heat up NFC West career

This week was filled with the unexpected: two late-afternoon OT thrillers after an uncompetitive afternoon window on Sunday. Successful side kicks, lots of them! Two weeks in a row with a good Monday night football competition. Here are six things to know after Week 14, even if we still don't know who's good in the AFC.1. The Rams are just one game behind the Cardinals in the NFC West. Heading into this season, that phrase wouldn't have made much sense. The Rams, fresh off their trade for Matthew Stafford, were a popular Super Bowl pick this season, while the Cardinals hadn't had more than .500 since 2015. But heading into Monday night's game in Arizona, the Rams were the team with the most at stake, having lost three of their previous four games and already 0-1 in the season series...

María José Catalá on the manager in the PP of Orihuela: “Our pulse will not shake in the face of difficult decisions”

The secretary general of the PPCV, María José Catalá, has justified today the forceful decision to dissolve the executive of the PP in Orihuela to impose a manager. The leader has wielded the need to end the "dysfunctions" that were taking place between the organic direction of training and the local government. Or what amounts to the same thing, to intervene in the war that exists between the until now president of the party in the capital of Vega Baja, Damaso Aparicio, and the mayor, Emilio Bascuñana. Catalá has warned that the leadership of the PPCV, the one led by Carlos Mazón since last July, will not tremble when adopting what he has described as "difficult decisions" and has shown that what happened in Orihuela , it may only be a warning to sailors, since the...

What awesome food can I prepare before Christmas? | Meal

What's a good celebratory meal for friends other than a Christmas dinner?Ben, ManchesterWhile Christmas dinner doesn't necessarily mean a bird, roasts, and a tub of gravy, Ben is right not to go overboard before the big day. "Christmas can be loaded with meat, so I would suggest a whole baked fish with a crust of salt," says Dan Smith, chef-patron of the fordwich arms in Kent. "It's so simple, but a true centerpiece." Combine the salt and egg whites - "about 500g salt for four egg whites" - add herbs, if desired, and mix until you have a paste: "Not too loose, or it will fall off the fish." Place a little of the mixture on a tray, pop a turbot or trout in the middle, then top with the rest of the salt crust and bake at 180 ° C for 45 minutes, until crisp: "Serve with artichokes of J...
