    A COMPETITIVE eater scoffed a staggering 88 Jaffa Cakes in just three minutes during a competition — and set a new world record. Max Stanford, 34, munched one of the chocolate-covered treats every two ­seconds and washed them down with six glasses of warm water. 2Max competes in an eating challenge once a week and posts them on his YouTube channelCredit: SWNS 2The Jaffa Cake event is the only one of its kind where the eating is verified so counts as an established world recordCredit: Alamy And the dedicated muncher smashed the previous record of 36 Jaffa Cakes eaten in the 180-second time limit, set in February 2020. Max, who considers himself a semi-pro competitive eater, said he only managed one practice ahead of the contest. The charity worker added: “I’m really glad I won, but I’m not particularly competitive against others. In practice, I ate 20 in 40 seconds, but I wasn’t sure I’d be able to keep that up.” Max competes in an eating challenge once a week and posts them on his YouTube channel. He recently downed...
    Rep. Joyce Beatty, chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, took to Twitter Tuesday, alleging Rep. Hal Rogers scoffed at her request to wear a mask and poked her in the back. The Ohio Democrat said she asked the Kentucky Republican to wear a mask before boarding a train in the Capitol complex. “He then poked my back, demanding I get on the train,” she wrote. “When I asked him not to touch me, he responded, ‘kiss my a**.’” ????

    The Los Angeles Review of Books was conceived more than a decade ago during a dark period for the print literary ecosystem. Tom Lutz, a writer and professor of creative writing at UC Riverside who began his career as a critic, was dismayed by the domino collapse of newspaper book reviews across the nation — robust, separate sections that had introduced him to literary culture back when he was a short-order cook and part-time student in Dubuque, Iowa. “What a shame,” he thought, “that future generations wouldn’t have that kind of access, and that authors wouldn’t have that kind of exposure.” He decided to do something about it; he founded the LARB — a mostly online forum for critics and authors, both established and emerging, to sprawl and build out ideas — and secured funding from Hollywood players ranging from a Disney family member to “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner. Ten years later, the mainstream media landscape has in many ways continued to wither, as local papers fold at an accelerating pace and only one big standalone newspaper book review...
    WHEN Graham Potter was linked to the Tottenham job in the summer, many of the club’s fans were less than impressed by the prospect of him taking over. The Brighton hierarchy were never worried it might actually happen and were always confident of retaining their forward-thinking manager. 2Tottenham fans must be wishing they hadn't scoffed at the idea of Graham Potter taking chargeCredit: Getty 2Nuno Espirito Santo is struggling for confidence But how those sceptical Spurs supporters may now wish the Englishman had swapped life at the Amex for the Lane given how things are going under Nuno Espirito Santo. The turnaround in fortunes for Nuno, who was named the Premier League manager of the month for August just 17 days ago, shows how quickly your stock can rise and fall in football. But those of us who have been following Potter’s project down on the South Coast can see why he is so highly regarded within football - and why his approach is built to outlast being a hero one moment, a zero the next. The former full-back, 46,...

    South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster at a rally for Sen. Lindsey Graham On Friday, the monthly jobs report showed an unexpectedly weak rate of job growth for the month of April. For economists, it was a something of a puzzle, but for Republicans on the hunt for a narrative, it was the answer to a prayer. Across the nation, Republicans declared that the problem was lazy Americans sitting at home, enjoying their fat unemployment checks, rather than looking for a job. As a result, governors in Montana and South Carolina announced that they were immediately ending the states’ expanded unemployment programs, treating the situation with the kind of emergency status they never showed when dealing with COVID-19. South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said asking students to wear masks was “ridiculous,”  insisted that large events stay open, and said that there was “no cause for public alarm in South Carolina.” It’s the kind of leadership that propelled his state to a position near the top of the cases per capita chart with 113,300 cases per million South Carolinians. McMaster’s state also managed to come in above the national...

I practically inhaled chocolate and ate McDonald’s and KFC — a family bucket — five times a week. “The more fast food I ate, the more I craved it. It was a vicious cycle. “When Mum bought sweets for me and my older sister, I’d eat all mine within two minutes — and then I’d eat hers. “We’d have a row about it but I just couldn’t help myself.” 10Zack says he used to eat a KFC bucket five days a week CrossFit combines elements of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), power-lifting, gymnastics and other exercises for an all-round fitness programme of gruelling workouts. Zack won last year’s title after lifting 360lb (163kg) — equivalent to...

    AN Icelandic beauty queen has told how she got “heated” with shamed football star Mason Greenwood — after he scoffed a bag of jelly babies. Nadia Gunnarsdottir, 20, said the pair “connected” on a ­dating app and the Manchester United striker, 18, met with her the day after making his England debut in Reykjavik. 12Nadia Gunnarsdottir has lifted the lid on her 'heated' night with Mason Greenwood 12Nadia and her cousin met Phil Foden and Greenwood at a hotel in Reykjavík 12Foden (pictured) and Greenwood evaded England’s hotel security to meet the girls Greenwood was sent home in ­disgrace last week with team-mate Phil Foden — after the pair evaded England’s hotel security to meet Nadia and her cousin Lara Clausen.

    Former Republican political operative and cable news analyst Ana Navarro-Cardenas found herself on the receiving end of conservative backlash after she tweeted about the death of Herman Cain and other conservatives who have contracted the coronavirus.
