Brendan Fraser is having a moment at the Venice International Film Festival. The once-ubiquitous movie star of the “The Mummy” and “George of the Jungle” franchises had, over the past decade, retreated from the spotlight. But Fraser is charting what could be a big comeback starting with his transformative role in Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale,” which has its world premiere Sunday night at the festival. In the film, Fraser plays Charlie, a reclusive English teacher with a gentle soul who weighs 600 pounds. Already, experts are predicting Oscar nominations, but Fraser said he’s just “trying to stay today.”

The Premier League has asked the governing body in charge of referees in England to review two decisions made following the review of the video on Saturday. West Ham and Newcastle were denied goals by the referee on the field, after a VAR intervention. West Ham manager David Moyes described a VAR decision to overturn what would have been Maxwel Cornet’s 90th-minute draw against Chelsea as “scandalous” because Jarrod Bowen was put on trial for fouling goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Chelsea won 2-1. In Newcastle, an own goal by Palace defender Tyrick Mitchell was ruled out for what VAR judged to be a foul by Newcastle midfielder Joe Willock on goalkeeper Vicente Guaita. The game ended 0-0.

Pakistan captain Babar Azam won his first bid in the Asian Cup and decided to play arch-rivals India in the Super 4 game on Sunday. India won the first round against Pakistan when they recorded the victory by five wickets in the group stage game at the same venue last Sunday. India were forced to change teams after the all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the remainder of the tournament due to a knee injury he suffered during the final group stage game against Hong Kong. Fast pitcher Avesh Khan also had to sit out due to illness as hitter Deepak Hooda and leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi landed their first game of the tournament.

Civil rights activists and some lawmakers are concerned that new redistricting maps in three southern states will dilute black voices. In Alabama and Louisiana, Republican-dominated legislatures have passed maps with a black majority district, despite blacks representing nearly a third of the population in each state. In Florida, lawmakers passed a map that dismantles at least one district where black voters have a strong voice. Civil rights activists fear the maps could diminish minority representation on Capitol Hill. The issue is especially contentious this year, when Democrats are struggling to maintain a slim majority in Congress.

Perhaps Georgia was underrated. The reigning national champions entered the season in third place in the country and were hardly forgotten, behind No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Ohio. But after losing 15 players to the NFL draft, including nearly half a defense, in the first round, it seemed only fair to do a bit of regression. The Bulldogs crushed Oregon’s number 11 with impressive ease, unleashing a more dynamic offense and defense as salty as last season’s wrecking crew. Meanwhile, in the ACC, North Carolina State No. 13 and North Carolina have made exciting escapes on trips against rivals in the state.

Americans are splurging on beauty while tightening their budgets elsewhere. According to market research firm IRI, sales of eye, face and lip makeup have increased in stores. This comes as major retailers lowered their financial outlook for the year after seeing shoppers pull back on many discretionary items in the last quarter. As pandemic restrictions loosen, consumers want to look their best for work and summer events. But another factor driving the increase could be a phenomenon known as the “lipstick index,” a long-standing theory that posits that lipstick sales increase during times of economic downturn.

President Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan could ease the debt burden of millions of borrowers. But in some states, the taxman may demand a portion of that relief. That’s because some states tax forgiven debt as income. And that means borrowers who are still paying off student loans could owe taxes of up to $10,000 or up to $20,000 that would count as income. In Mississippi, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Arkansas and North Carolina, forgiven student loans will be subject to state income tax unless they change their laws to conform to the federal exemption. That’s according to a count by the Tax Foundation.

The turning point came in first-half stoppage time, when Montpellier striker Valere Germain received a straight red card for a reckless foul from behind on Adam Ounas. Already struggling with 11 players, Montpellier was undone by the expulsion and conceded two goals in the second half.

Cyrus Mistry, an Indian-born Irish businessman and former chairman of Indian conglomerate Tata Sons, died in an accident after his car crashed in western India. He was 54 years old. Police say the accident took place on Sunday near Mumbai. Mistry served as chairman of Tata Sons for five years until he was removed by the board in October 2016. He challenged the board’s decision, but India’s top court upheld his resignation. Politicians and business leaders reacted with shock to the news of Mistry’s death. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Mistry was a promising business leader who believed in India’s economic prowess. Mistry owned an 18.4% stake in Tata Sons through his company, Cyrus Investments Pvt. Ltd. In 2018, his net worth was approximately $10 billion.

Black businesspeople in the Mississippi capital say the city’s broken water system poses dire costs to their bottom line. They say the crisis threatens to hit them hardest. They fear the city’s water problems will send more consumer dollars from Jackson and its crumbling infrastructure to the city’s outskirts. Some entrepreneurs report spending between $300-500 a day on ice and bottled water. The city’s population is now over 80% black, with around 25% of its residents living in poverty. Jackson’s tax base has been eroded in recent decades as the population has dwindled after whites fled to the suburbs. Jackson’s water problems have left some of the city’s 150,000 residents with little or no water flowing from taps.

The roots of First Baptist Church on San Andrés Island, Colombia, run deep. The church is so crucial to the island’s history that a detailed record of births and deaths is kept here in dusty, crumbling books that date back nearly two centuries. From its founding until 1913, the church and its pastors held great authority over the community in shaping the values ​​of the islanders. It is also a symbol of emancipation and a source of pride for the Raizals, the mostly Protestant, English-speaking inhabitants of San Andrés and the smaller islands that form an archipelago in the western Caribbean.

Conspiracies over fraudulent elections are now believed by millions of people in the United States, and conferences held across the country that feature prominent figures pushing these theories are one reason. Speakers at these events claim to show evidence that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump through widespread fraud or manipulation of voting machines. However, several reviews in state after state showed that the election was fair and the results accurate. Many speakers have been touring the US for over a year at events that are broadcast live and widely distributed. At a recent conference in Omaha, Nebraska, attendees watched more than eight hours of presentations on allegations that were largely debunked.

Liz Truss, who is set to become Britain’s new prime minister this week, has vowed to act within a week to tackle a cost-of-living crisis fueled by rising energy bills linked to Ukraine’s war. But Truss, speaking to the BBC on Sunday, declined to provide details on the actions she would take, suggesting it would be wrong to discuss specific policies until she takes over the top job. She stressed, however, that she understands the magnitude of the problems facing Britain. The government has been unable to deal with rising inflation, labor disputes and tensions in the country’s health care system since early July, when Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his intention to step down and sparked a race to choose his successor.

Donald Trump is not the first to face criticism for flouting rules and traditions around protecting confidential government records. But national security experts say recent revelations point to an unprecedented disregard for post-presidential norms established after the Watergate era. As more details emerge from last month’s FBI search of Trump’s Florida home, the Justice Department has painted a picture of indifference to the rules on a scale that some considered inconceivable after the establishment of the Presidential Records Act in 1978. The law specifies that immediately after a president leaves office, the National Archives and Records Administration assumes legal and physical custody of the outgoing administration’s records.

Pope Francis beatified one of his predecessors, John Paul I, a pontiff who served briefly and who was distinguished by his humility and joy. The ceremony in St. Peter’s Square on Sunday constitutes the last formal step in the Vatican before the possible sanctity of Albino Luciani, an Italian who died in 1978, 33 days after being elected. Last year, Francis approved a miracle attributed to John Paul I – that of the recovery of a seriously ill 11-year-old girl in 2011 in Buenos Aires. Sitting under a canopy outside St Peter’s Basilica, Francis led the ceremony, punctuated by thunder and lightning. Francis encouraged the faithful to pray to Luciani to obtain “the smile of the soul”.

Thousands of Indians rallied under the leadership of opposition party congressional leader Rahul Gandhi, who has made a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government over rising unemployment and rising food and fuel prices. Gandhi accused Modi of pursuing policies that benefit large business groups at the expense of small and medium-sized industries and poor farmers and workers. He also said the government was creating an atmosphere of fear and hatred, in reference to Hindu-Muslim tensions. He said prices for gasoline, diesel, cooking gas and essential foods like wheat have risen 40% to 175% since Modi came to power eight years ago. The government says it has provided millions of people with toilets, gas hookups, clean water, bank accounts, free health insurance and homes.

Meteorologists predicted more rain in the region in the coming days and officials urged residents of Jamshoro and Dadu districts in Sindh province near the lake to evacuate. The rising waters reached dangerous levels and posed a threat to a dike and a protective embankment, they said.
