July 02, 2022 - 17:14 BST The newest hotel taking Dubai by storm is Raffles The Palm Dubai. This five-star hotel is an Instagrammable hotspot favoured by celebrities. We review the hotel rooms, the afternoon tea, the pool and the food. Luxury, expensive, lavish, and boujee are just some of the words I’d use to describe Dubai . I’ve been going to the Middle East for the past 10 years and I seriously don’t see my love affair ending any time soon. You might hate the idea of Dubai , and that’s ok. It’s not for everyone. If you love all things culture, long walks and boozy sundowners, this might not be the destination for you. But if you love GLAM , if you love LUXURY and if you love BLING , Dubai should probably be your next holiday destination.

Click here to read the full article. On a warm afternoon in June, crowds in Northwest D.C. celebrated Juneteenth by filling the air with the sounds of drums, toms, and voices, singing throughout the streets. I’m speed walking to catch my train home in order to spend the last few hours of Father’s day with my dad , himself a drummer, who just lost his oldest child and only son, my brother, unexpectedly that Monday. I zoom past the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where I’d spent part of my morning with Pharrell , recapping his second Something In The Water festival, which took place the same weekend. Despite being pressed for time, a sound distinct to the area brings me to a sudden halt: A crowd is dancing to live go-go. Here, t he rich history and culture that museums and music festivals hoped to cultivate played out in real-time. I wonder, briefly, if should just catch a different train and get home a little later. I choose my dad, but … [Read more...] about How a Celebration of Go-Go Music Became a Scapegoat For Violence in D.C.
This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 5 NEW YORK - Valerie Griffith's final journey began on a battered ferry, a floating hearse bound for a most unusual island. Nobody lives on Hart Island, a scruffy one-mile slice of land in Long Island Sound that New York's tabloids call "Forgotten Island," "Haunted Island" and "Isle of Tears." For 150 years, it's been known as the place where the city buries its penniless - not art collectors like Griffith. But on Dec. 7, 2020, Griffith's coffin arrived at Hart Island's dock and was loaded onto a truck for a quick drive to a trench the size of a tennis court. There, on a cold and wet morning, gravediggers lowered her simple wooden coffin into the muddy ground. No relative or friend was present and there was no mention of her remarkable life: how the English-born Griffith had helped the U.S. military during World War II, exposed antisemitism in the United States and … [Read more...] about She died in a Manhattan penthouse but was buried on an island for the poor

What on earth is the parliamentary Conservative Party trying to do to itself? With a near 80-seat majority, Brexit done and Covid under control, it has a gilt-edged opportunity to build a fairer, more dynamic, more prosperous Britain. Instead, through bitter feuding and a creeping epidemic of sleaze, the party seems bent on self-destruction. It simply beggars belief. In constituencies across this country, thousands of Tory officials and volunteers work tirelessly to elect and support their local MP. They tramp streets, knock on doors, stuff envelopes and raise funds. Given the recent behaviour of their representatives at Westminster, they really must be wondering why they bother. Today, every Tory MP needs to take a good look in the mirror and ask themselves honestly whether they are worthy of that dedication. Deputy chief whip Chris Pincher (ironically a man charged with maintaining party discipline) has admitted being roaring drunk in the Carlton Club – the … [Read more...] about DAILY MAIL COMMENT: Government is looking more like a circus act
