Curry, who delivered a stirring speech on the power of love, said that afterwards he “could feel slaves around the place” - calling it a “sign of hope.”Curry, who has published a new book called Love is the Way, said of the experience to People, “After I preached the sermon, I just remember it was like I could feel slaves around the place. I don't mean to be spooky, but it was like their voice was somehow heard that day. I included one of their songs, 'There is a Balm in Gilead.'”

The UK’s chief scientific adviser has a £600,000 shareholding in a drugs giant contracted to develop a Covid-19 vaccine for the Government, prompting claims of a potential conflict of interest. Sir Patrick Vallance, who also chairs the Government’s expert advisory panel on vaccines, holds a deferred bonus of 43,111 shares in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) worth £600,000 from his time as president of the multinational drug company, the Telegraph can reveal. He has already cashed in more than £5 million worth of shares he received from the company during his tenure from 2012 until March 2018, when he became the Government’s chief scientific officer. Accounts show he held 404,201 GSK shares when he left, worth £6.1 million at current values. In July, GSK and drugs multinational Sanofi agreed a deal with the UK Government to supply it with up to 60 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine, subject to final contract. It has a similar deal with the US Government for an initial 100 million doses as part of Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed. Earlier this week at the televised briefing heralding the latest Covid-19 crackdown (see video below), Sir Patrick predicted the first few doses of an effective Covid-19 vaccine might be available before the end of this year, but said it was far more likely any breakthrough will happen during the first six months of 2021.

According to our iCals, we're a mere two days into fall, but one thing that can get you in that apple picking, trick-or-treating spirit faster than the leaves change is an autumnal hair color. Somewhat fittingly, then, the season's next hair trend to reach pumpkin-spice levels is also sweet enough to stash in your candy bag: "chocolate almond." Like a hybrid between Werther's Original and Almond M&Ms, this ridiculously flattering color mixes swirls of creamy caramel with golden beige and works best on people with a darker base. While you can choose the level of lightness you want depending on how much maintenance you're willing to put in, according to Chicago-based colorist Karissa Schaudt, it should still "fall under the warmer brunette family" and be painted on via balayage for the most natural effect (plus, easier upkeep). "This look adds golden undertones to brown hair that will create a healthy appearance and reflect tons of new shine." "My current recommendation to any client would be a low-maintenance hair color [that is] created to have a seamless grow-out and require minimal upkeep - especially during a pandemic, when touchups aren't as scheduled," she recently told POPSUGAR. "This look adds golden undertones to brown hair that will create a healthy appearance and reflect tons of new shine. Mixing multiple colors, like brown and red, will look incredibly natural." Whether you're after barely there highlights that only glimmer when the sun hits or bolder streaks of blond weaved throughout, we've rounded up our favorite takes on the "chocolate almond" hair color trend that'll transport you straight to fall szn. (Besides, if there's anything we've learned in 2020 so far, it's that time is an illusion and nobody - and we mean nobody - really knows what day it is.)
President name-drops Goya Foods amid claims about protesters throwing tins
Nicola Sturgeon has complained she lacked the financial powers to shut all pubs and restaurants as Scotland recorded its highest ever number of daily coronavirus cases. The First Minister said she would have preferred to have gone further than the 10pm curfew she will impose from Friday on all hospitality settings as this was not enough to get the virus under control. Speaking on the six-month anniversary of lockdown, she claimed she was "hamstrung" as her government lacked the money to compensate businesses and protect jobs in the sector if they were forced to close again. She said she would write to Boris Johnson requesting more financial powers but the Scottish Tory leader noted the Treasury has handed her SNP administration billions of pounds extra to tackle the pandemic. Douglas Ross said the middle of a pandemic was "the wrong time to raise long-standing constitutional grievances" and urged her to refrain from "making the usual, tired political points.” One UK Government insider said the First Minister had been happy to take the credit when cases were low in Scotland during the summer but now wanted to deflect the blame after they had surged to a record high.

British finance minister Rishi Sunak will announce new plans to support jobs on Thursday, as fears mount of a surge in unemployment when an existing 52 billion pound ($66 billion) support programme comes to an end in just over a month. Sunak has ruled out a wholesale extension of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, which supported 8.9 million private-sector jobs at its peak in May, but a growing second wave of COVID-19 cases has piled pressure on him to announce a replacement. "As our response to coronavirus adapts, tomorrow afternoon I will update the House of Commons on our plans to continue protecting jobs through the winter," Sunak said in a statement on Wednesday.

How satisfying is it to see makeup on a cotton swab after you've wiped it away? (Answer: Very.) Not only is it proof your face is getting clean, when it only takes one swipe, it makes a commitment to always cleansing your face before bed that much less stressful.
