However, a Howard Hughes-like friend from her past seeks help in proving that he's not selling arms to enemies of the US and so Peggy springs into covert action. In the opening episode this entailed a couple of spiffy fight scenes, but the script was pretty nifty, too, especially the badinage between Peggy and her accused friend's English butler, Jarvis, who tells her at the outset that he's available to... "My wife and I go to bed," he replies, before elaborating: "Seven o'clock, sherry. Eight o'clock, Benny Goodman. Nine o'clock, bed". Peggy herself is prone to such endearing exclamations as "Crikey O'Reilly. Here the basic setup is of such reality shows as The Bachelor, in which a rich young man chooses a mate from a gaggle of long-legged wannabe-model hopefuls, but in this satirical drama we're behind the scenes as producers and crew behave... There were no outright laughs in the opening episode, which veered dangerously towards the soap-opera cliches it was supposedly satirising, but some of the put-downs were arrestingly nasty.
There are many ways to watch the Tour de France. If you’re able to be in France while the race is on, seeing it up close will give you a whole new understanding of the scale, intensity and sheer speed of the race. Even for spectators, different stages require different tactics. The logistics (and atmosphere) of a mountain stage are completely different to the final day on the Champs Elysees. For the closest possible vantage point, I’d pick the mountains every time. If you choose a hard enough climb, the peloton will be cracked into pieces – hard for the sprinters but it means you’ll be watching the race for 20 minutes or more. The roads close early on the day of the race, so unless you’re planning to camp on the side of the mountain (or rent a campervan like thousands of fans who follow the race every year) you’ll need to find a way to get to the best vantage points. I’ll give you a tip: the roads don’t close to bicycles, which is why you’ll see so many spectators running along in cycling kit, with their own machines leaning by the side of the road. Ideally, you’ll befriend someone with a campervan and a TV showing the race. Load up on local delicacies, make sure to remember enough wine and plenty of water, and ride up to your desired vantage point on the.
OL PEJETA CONSERVANCY, Kenya — It’s not that Sudan didn’t want a baby. Researchers had watched the 42-year-old northern white rhinoceros try to mount a female. And as the odds dimmed that he would mate successfully, conservationists had to reckon with their own failure. How had the fate of an entire subspecies of rhinoceros been left to one elderly male. In just a few decades, a large population of northern white males has been reduced to a single 3,500-pound bull living in a 10-acre enclosure with round-the-clock guards. But scientists estimate that hundreds — perhaps thousands — of species are becoming extinct each year. In 2011, the western black rhino was classified as extinct. That same year, a subspecies of the Javan rhino was declared extinct in Vietnam. And barring a scientific breakthrough, the northern white rhino, the second-largest mammal in central Africa, will be gone soon, too. ‘‘It’s a massive conservation failure,’’ said Richard Vigne, chief executive of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the private wildlife refuge where the white rhinos now live. When Sudan was born in 1972 in what is now South Sudan, there were about a thousand northern white rhinos scattered across central Africa.
His perception was filled with the rotation of the light and the click of the pendulum of a grandfather clock, spinning and swinging ... The man moved back to his desk. "Roger." An indiscriminate roar of wind and water crackled in over the line.
