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

Nearly 30 years ago, Friends appeared on our screens. It was the TV series that brilliantly captured the zeitgeist with its hilarious tales of a bunch of young, single folk setting out together in 1990s New York. It was about youth, love, confusion, bad dates, bad hair, regrets, coffee shops, hangovers — but most of all, the glue of friendship that held them together. We all related to it; we still sing along to the theme tune I'll Be There For You, which became an upbeat anthem for young dreamers.

Covid cases have jumped by a third in Britain over the past week, with as many as one in 20 people now infected in parts of the country worst hit by the resurgence. Office of National Statistics (ONS) analysts estimate nearly 2.3million people in the UK had the virus on June 24 — up from roughly 1.7million in the previous week. Hospital admissions have also trebled in the last month, piling pressure on an already overwhelmed NHS. Though only a fraction of patients are primarily ill with the disease.

Some NHS hospitals have already brought back their own rules on coverings. But Boris Johnson today insisted there were no plans to reintroduce curbs 'at the moment'. The Prime Minister did, however, leave the door open to future measures by refusing to definitively rule out the return of lockdowns. … [Read more...] about Britain’s Covid cases jump by a THIRD in a week: Up to one in 18 people are infected in worst-hit areas… so is YOUR area a hotspot?
