God and metal: scenes from a hardcore Christian music festival

Photographer KC McGinnis went to Audiofeed, a Christian rock and metal festival, to revisit his roots. He found a surprising cross section of believers, incredibly loud music and a serious rock attitudeAt the beginning of July, I photographed Audiofeed, a Christian rock and metal festival in Illinois.This was a bit of a reunion for me. As a teenager growing up in the evangelical subculture, I was a huge fan of Christian hard rock and metal in the early 2000s. The music helped me feel adventurous and unique, and it was an important way for me to craft an identity. I lost track of the scene after going to college, but I never stopped enjoying the music.

Wayne Rooney rekindles his Everton love affair and wants to play up front

Wayne Rooney revealed he is looking forward to the Merseyside derby more than going back to Old Trafford and also that he wants his England place backIf nothing else, it was a more polished performance than the first time Wayne Rooney staged his own press conference, on a January evening in 2003 and the occasion of his first professional deal for Everton. At 17, Rooney was so unprepared for the barrage of flashing cameras the words stuck in his throat and his audience could hardly hear him speak. David Moyes told him off for chewing gum and there was an awkward moment, after his first uncertain words, when he reached for the bottle of water on his table. Rooney was about to swig straight from it until Moyes intervened. “Pour it in the glass, Wayne,” came the advice.

Are Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal set for grandest of reunions? | Sean Ingle

The two greatest tennis players in history have rolled back the years at Wimbledon and a rerun of SW19’s greatest final could be on the cards on SundayNine years ago this week, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal stepped on to Centre Court and played the final of all finals: a three-act epic across four hours and 48 minutes. It was, staggeringly, the last time the two greatest tennis players in history faced each other at Wimbledon.Yet, in the late autumn of their careers, the prospect of their great trilogy of finals between 2006 and 2008 becoming a quadrilogy grows more tangible with each screaming forehand. According to the bookmakers, the 35-year-old Federer is favourite for his eighth Wimbledon title while Nadal, at 31, is right behind him. Not so long ago both men appeared to be tumbling towards retirement; now the headwinds are blowing them towards the grandest of reunions. Continue reading...

Wayne Rooney and Everton are well placed for a fruitful and warm reunion | Nick Ames

Everton fans have been booing their prodigal son since his departure 13 years ago but the old warmth should not be hard to reigniteThe Goodison Park roof was not quite wrenched from its fittings when Wayne Rooney made his return to Everton colours but perhaps it loosened enough to sow the seeds for what passed two years later. Rooney had felt some apprehension before donning the kit for Duncan Ferguson’s testimonial in August 2015, aware that his presence had hardly been greeted with universal joy on those annual visits with Manchester United; when it came around, though, the applause was warm and the chants from the Gwladys Street Stand were lusty enough. If nothing else, it suggested that on both sides the old feelings might not be so difficult to reawaken.

The Midwife review – old wounds reopened in emotional two-hander

Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot give it their all in a moving, verging on sentimental, tale of homewrecking and home truthsThree years ago, French film-maker Martin Provost made the intimate and intelligent Violette, with Sandrine Kiberlain and Emmanuelle Devos, recreating a little-known literary friendship between Simone de Beauvoir and her difficult protege Violette Leduc. Now Provost has given us another face-off between an older and a younger woman: fictional this time. It’s quite as robustly directed and well acted as Violette, if a little contrived and heading inevitably to a sentimental acceptance of life’s painful tangles. The emotional duellists this time are Catherine Frot and Catherine Deneuve; Frot plays Claire Breton, a hospital midwife, and Deneuve is Béatrice, the glamorous but disreputable mistress of Claire’s late father, a woman who caused heartbreak and tragedy. Now this ageing homewrecker suddenly reappears, with money and health worries, brazenly asking for Claire’s help. Claire is furious at the opening of old wounds, and yet their angry reunion raises the extraordinary possibility that this undoubtedly vibrant and interesting woman could be a kind of mother figure to Claire in her own lonely middle age.

It Comes at Night review – fiercely watchable post-apocalyptic chiller

After a virus wipes out civilisation, there are bleak and devastating scenes in this claustrophobic tale of two families coming together and falling apartThe 28-year-old Texan film-maker Trey Edwards Shults is a former crew member on Terrence Malick movies who made a big impression last year with his no-budget debut feature at SXSW, Krisha, about an eccentric older woman showing up at a family reunion party. For his follow-up he has put together this very impressive movie whose title, It Comes at Night, might suggest straight horror. But, that isn’t really the case and the title doesn’t entirely mesh with what happens in the film.Actually, what you get is a claustrophobic psychological chiller in the more realist post-apocalyptic vein, set in a lonely world where law and order and human decencies have broken down due to some unspecified plague, which is liable to surface again if brutal quarantine discipline is relaxed for a single moment. Those who have been spared the great horror that has swept civilisation away must get by with their families as best they can – barricaded by their own anxiety, deeply and even murderously suspicious of strangers. Continue reading...

Why opioid deaths are this generation’s Aids crisis | Mary O’Hara

The soaring numbers of deaths from overdoses in the US and UK requires a radical and fast rethink of drugs policyDr Daniel Ciccarone, a San Franciso-based public health researcher and physician told me of a recent encounter which, despite 17 years in the field, left him stunned. “I talked to a [heroin] user in West Virginia. Nice guy. Manages to keep his habit and keep his job. He’s 10 years out of high school. He’s 29. He went to his high school reunion. I kid you not – half of his high school class is gone. Died. It was mostly [opioid] pills and heroin.”Ciccarone is on the frontline of efforts to understand and combat the US’s rapidly escalating opioid crisis and he makes no bones about the scale and impact of what he says is an unprecedented public health emergency. “We are moving beyond an epidemic. I would call it a crisis,” he says. Continue reading...
