July 19, 2017 4:01 AM 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: Holy hell

I'm not a man who swears easily or swears often, but I'll be the first to admit that I dug into the seedier side of my vocabulary when I experienced what the Dodge Demon could do at the drag strip. This is the kind of car that will readjust your definition of what "fast" means, the kind of car that demands respect and the kind of car that elicit a profane 113

July 18, 2017 3:18 PM Review: In 'Valerian,' cosmic splendor struggles for liftoff

When even most of the good spectacles carry a strong whiff of prepackaging, try taking in the air of Luc Besson's sci-fi extravaganza "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets." Its atmosphere — vibrant in color, elastic in form — takes some acclimating to after such a barrage of more sanitized summer movies. Watching "Valerian" is to simultaneously 89

July 17, 2017 4:00 AM Ray Phiri, the passing of a storyteller

The Stimela man did not come to sing, but there was a live band and a small crowd of really talented musicians around. There, also was the legendary guitarist John Selolwane. Later Ray and John kicked off a mini reminder of the Graceland Tour that the duo had with Paul Simon. Those who remembered the Graceland in Concert at Rufaro Stadium in 1987 grew nostalgic 59

July 11, 2017 6:01 PM Origin-al Sin: What Hollywood Must Learn From 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

Mr. Parker Goes to Washington: Spidey (Tom Holland) scales the Washington Monument in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Long, long ago, when the Earth was new and icthyosaurs swam the turbid seas, Iron Man 2 arrived in theaters. [Ed. Note — Simmer down. It was 2010.] It was, most agreed, a disappointment, compared to its predecessor, despite a fun and deeply 56

July 11, 2017 4:32 PM 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Is a Welcome Relief From the Marvel Universe's Baggage

What officially started in 2008 with a mechanical man has grown to include gods, space adventures, and magic, as well as more down-to-Earth (literally and figuratively) television tales 44

The research, published in the journal the Annals of Internal Medicine, suggests an extra cup of coffee could lengthen a person's lifespan - even if it is decaffeinated. But sceptical experts point out it is impossible 39

July 10, 2017 10:06 AM President Masire’s final message to Botswana

I know this because he hired me in March to help write his final memoirs. During April and May I spent many hours with Rra Gaone on the couch in his residence, at which time I honestly (and mistakenly) felt that the fears about his ill-health were overblown. Rre Masire’s deeply-held beliefs in his final years are unlikely to be universally popular, and publishing 88

July 10, 2017 4:00 AM Magic in the sky, miracles down below

Well not exactly, but it surely looked like the abundant water at Makgadikgadi Pans in Sowa had suddenly transformed into land. Off course, planes cannot land and takeoff in a sea of water unless there is a man-made surface and in this miraculous case, the aircraft could be seen soaring in the sky before flying terrifyingly low over the Sowa Pan brushing 60

July 5, 2017 4:10 AM REVIEW: Homecoming is the best Spider-Man movie ever made

IT MAY seem ridiculous, rebooting Spider-Man for the third time in 15 years but after seeing Spider-Man: Homecoming, you'll be glad they did. Spider-Man: Homecoming is the perfect blend of high school dramedy and superhero antics. This is Marvel's homage to John Hughes, complete with Ferris Bueller reference.
