Over the coming weeks, we’ve decided to try to settle the argument once and for all by crowning Aberdeen’s Greatest Goal via a reader vote. As part of our Aberdeen’s Greatest Goal series, we are also running a competition for the best recreations. Alex McLeish, Aberdeen 4 – Rangers 1, Scottish Cup final (22/05/82)In recent weeks, more than one member of Aberdeen’s early-80s golden generation has pointed to the 4-1 1982 Scottish Cup final win over Rangers, recently replayed on TV, as a seminal moment in Alex Ferguson’s Dons reign. That Scottish Cup final was the game that gave us the belief. “In the end the guys up front and big Tattie (Neale Cooper) walking in and smashing the ball into the net from a yard was one of these iconic moments.”Is this Aberdeen’s Greatest Goal?

Caution: Spoilers aheadThis has certainly been one of the most interesting and unique seasons of Drag Race ever. She’s got the kind of kooky outsider vibe Drag Race fans love. Next we go to the three finalists and Crystal Methyd is wearing possibly the most avant-garde outfit ever to be seen on Drag Race. An actual, fully-functioning pinata, reminding us of one of our favourite Drag Race drinking games; is it cultural appropriation, or is it just high concept?! We also get a nice tribute to Drag Race producer Jacqueline Wilson, who passed away earlier this year.

Campaigners seeking to halt the growth of school run traffic think that Covid-19 may succeed where concerns about obesity and pollution have failedIt is unhealthy, dangerous and other motorists loathe it, yet until now, seemingly nothing has been able to halt the growth of school run traffic.Might the need to enforce social distancing finally stop it in its tracks? New powers to impose temporary road closures at the start and end of each school day will stop parents ferrying their children to school by car, encouraging a return to the days when children walked or cycled. Worries about air pollution and obesity may have done little to persuade parents to get out of their cars, but campaigners hope that fears of Covid-19 could finally turn the tide. Chris Boardman, the cycling and walking commissioner for Greater Manchester, an Olympic gold medallist, said: “What we do in the

The heatwave that cooked Las Vegas over the past few days brought temperatures over 100F. In some neighborhoods of Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, up to a third or more of households lack air conditioning. “This summer is definitely not going to be like any other summer,” said Deanne Criswell, the commissioner of New York City Emergency Management. In Nevada’s Clark county, which includes Las Vegas, four cooling centers stayed open during the most recent heatwave. They can’t even leave the building,” said McCoy-Douglas, who also knew of two neighbors who had died of Covid-19.

Nine years after the space shuttle program fizzled out under Barack Obama, Trump wants to witness astronauts lift off from American soil once again. The mission, billed as “Launch America”, also offers a welcome diversion from the coronavirus pandemic. “Thanks to President Trump, space exploration is once again a top priority,” it said.

A few days before New York locked down and Broadway closed indefinitely, Rose Byrne was on stage in Brooklyn, doing Medea. Luckily, the new TV show Byrne is promoting is an invigorating effort that lifts the spirits even as it depresses. Mrs America, in which Byrne plays Gloria Steinem, is an ensemble piece set in 1972, at the height of the women’s movement in the US.

Charlotte, Tim, Bruce and Tracey say that some mornings they can barely get out of bed, never mind begin to mourn. “You wake up and you’re just a complete wreck, and nothing you can do is processed without thinking of Harry,” says his mother, Charlotte Charles. The Sacoolas family had moved to the UK only a month earlier, and lived three miles away in a village called Hinton-in-the-Hedges. In September, Sacoolas returned to the US, claiming diplomatic immunity, and Harry’s family became less forgiving. We consistently called for Anne Sacoolas’ immunity to be waived before she left the UK.

Scientists and artists have used the drop in noise pollution during the coronavirus lockdown to create the first global public sound map of the spring dawn chorus. Throughout May, people around the world have uploaded about 3,000 early morning bird recordings made on their phones to the Dawn Chorus website, where they are being shared to help conservation and to create public art. On the doorstep of Krause’s temporary home in Sonoma, California, a northern mocking bird and ashy-throated flycatcher greet sunrise. Following them come woodpigeons, carrion crows, magpies and goldfinches, who in turn are followed by dunnocks, sparrows, blackcaps and parakeets. “We hope to encourage people, even from windows and balconies, to make and share recordings of the dawn chorus at this exceptional and challenging time, when human activity is drastically reduced,” said Gorman.

But all music scenes need fixed venues. The energy with which Britain has pursued that escape has made it one of the global centres of music culture. In the decade to 2018, 35% of music venues closed, the victims of noise complaints, gentrification, soaring rents. The Music Venues Trust’s Save Our Venues campaign has removed 156 venues from its critical closure list. Will Manchester continue to fall behind cities such as Berlin, where public funds are supporting club culture?

If there is any resemblance of the Trump mutation of the Republican party to any actual party in the election of 1856 it is not to the Republicans. Rather, it is to the third party in that campaign, the American party, also known as the Know Nothings, who also had a concise platform. The Know Nothings emerged from the crack-up of the Whig party over the issue of the extension of slavery in the territories. Most regarded themselves as Old Whigs, “conservatives in principle” in the words of their party platform.

Our children have been excitedly planning how they will win the water fight you promised to have with them at 10am. The person I glimpse every day before you go to work gives me hope that, if you could just stick with sobriety, family life would be joyful. We didn’t use the word alcoholic until five years ago, when you first admitted you needed help. Triggers seem to be everywhere: a bad day at work, time off work, me being away, me having a drink with friends. I can tell when it has started again: your personality changes instantly; instead of catching yourself interrupting me, I get a detailed monologue about your working day, without you asking about mine.
