A short history of Donald Trump's 'birther' conspiracy – video - 16 September 2016
"Donald Trump on Friday publicly acknowledged for the first time that President Barack Obama was born in America.
Trump had long fanned the flames of this conspiracy theory, known as ‘birtherism’, and spent much of spring 2011 garnering media attention
by constantly claiming without any evidence that Obama might have born overseas.
He then sporadically revisited the issue in the years to come. We look back at some of Trump’s more incendiary remarks."

US playwright Edward Albee dies aged 88 - 17 September 2016
"US playwright Edward Albee, the author of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, has died aged 88...
A three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, he was arguably America's greatest living playwright after the deaths of Arthur Miller and August Wilson in 2005..."

Edward Albee was an instinctive puncturer of the American Dream - 17 September 2016
+ Edward Albee, playwright – obituary
(telegraph.co.uk)

Edward Franklin Albee (March 12, 1928 – September 16, 2016) "was an American playwright known for works
such as The Zoo Story (1958), The Sandbox (1959), and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962). His works are often considered as well-crafted, realistic examinations of the modern condition. His early works reflect a mastery and Americanization of the Theatre of the Absurd that found its peak in works by European playwrights such as Samuel Beckett, Eugène Ionesco and Jean Genet. Younger American playwrights, such as Paula Vogel,
credit Albee's daring mix of theatricality and biting dialogue with helping to reinvent the post-war American theatre in the early 1960s.
Later in his life, Albee continued to experiment in works such as The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia? (2002)."

15 reasons why you really should visit the Cotswolds - Article + Photos + Video - 13 September 2016
"Covering nearly 800 square miles across five counties (Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire), the “wolds”,
or rolling hills, is the biggest of the 38 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales."

(telegraph.co.uk)

 

The Cotswolds "is an area in south central England containing the Cotswold Hills, a range of rolling hills
which rise from the meadows of the upper Thames to an escarpment, known as the Cotswold Edge, above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale...
The well-established boundaries of the Cotswolds have expanded considerably since moving out of the cities and into the countryside gained popularity. Now the Cotswolds boundaries are roughly 25 miles (40 km) across and 90 miles (145 km) long, stretching south-west from just south of Stratford-upon-Avon to just south of Bath. It lies across the boundaries of several English counties; mainly Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, and parts of Wiltshire, Somerset, Worcestershire and Warwickshire. The hills give their name to the Cotswold local-government district in Gloucestershire, which administers a large part of the area. The highest point of the region is Cleeve Hill at 1,083 ft (330 m),[2] just to the north of Cheltenham."
