‘Blade Runner’ Oscar Pistorius’ murder story laid bare in new film

Turning on “The Life and Trials of Oscar Pistorius,” you may expect an answer as to whether the South African track star meant to kill his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on that night in February 2013. But you won’t find a clear-cut conclusion.

Even the documentary’s director is still torn.

“It depends what mood I’m in when I wake up,” Daniel Gordon tells The Post about his own beliefs on Pistorius’ guilt. “It depends on what part of the film I watch. The truth is, we will never know. But we can have a hunch and come with a bias before we watch the film and things will be explained.”

The riveting four-part “30 for 30” documentary, which premieres on ESPN+ Sunday, artfully paints a complex portrait of the boundary-breaking Olympic sprinter whose downfall was as great as his soaring accomplishments both on and off the track.

Homebase launches new dual purpose concept store

Homebase has launched a new experimental split-level showroom dedicated to kitchens and bathrooms.

The novel concept store, located in a redesigned Bathstore site at Sydenham Road, Guildford, will allow customers to book free design appointments for both bathrooms and kitchens, where a designer will advise them on ideas and products. There will also be specialist 3D design software to give customers an accurate picture of what their prospective bathroom or kitchen will look like.

The ground floor of the store is dedicated to kitchens whilst the first floor showcases bathroom displays, each “providing everything required to complete the whole project, from inspiration to installation”. Homebase has partnered with HOMEPROJECTS to provide an installation service.

This represents the second trial Homebase has undertaken of a smaller high-street store format, following the launching two DECORATE by Homebase stores in May 2020.

Damian McGloughlin, CEO of Homebase, commented: “I am extremely proud of

Aaron Virdee and “Walking with Jelly Babies”

Joyful, witty and charming. Three deserving words to describe the roller-coaster that is Walking with Jelly Babies (2020). Aaron Virdee, the shining star of this production, hilariously personifies the much-loved Uncle Madhu – an unconventional Desi uncle.

Walking with Jelly Babies is a much-awaited spin-off from the nationally renowned Kali Theatre’s production My Big Fat Cowpat Wedding (2014).

During a mini gossip session with the camera, the not-so-secret audience eavesdrop on the scandalous notion – Uncle Madhu has to walk. Oh, and that he fell in a cowpat.

Addressing the audience wearing an obviously mismatched bath towel, complete with a hat, reveals just how personal the story is – after all, he is the only star of the show.

But don’t worry, there are frequent fabulous outfit changes becoming more weird and wonderful as time moves on.

The only consistent item of his boundless wardrobe happens to be a loud

‘Who knows what’s around the corner?’ Bolton and Crawley react to Sunak’s plans | Politics

Bolton: ‘It feels like we’ve been forgotten about’

When Rishi Sunak announced his winter jobs programme on Thursday, he will have had Red Wall constituencies such as Bolton North East in mind.

One of the most marginal seats in the UK, after the Conservatives ousted Labour by just 378 votes in December, Covid has hit this part of Greater Manchester hard, with the town currently subject to stricter lockdown measures than anywhere else in the country.

Unemployment here increased by 70% between March and August, with 10% of the working age population – 6,040 people – now out of work. That number is expected to rocket after Boris Johnson warned it could be six months before life returned to anything resembling normality.

For 20 years, as a small business owner in the Tonge area, Gail Hounslea prided herself on never making staff jobs redundant and never taking on debt. Covid

While New York City real estate listings are constantly teeming with luxury apartments and penthouses, it’s not too often that you come upon the once home of a member of The Beatles. Today, John Lennon’s former 4,000-square-foot NYC penthouse has hit the market for $5.5 million and it’s where some of the musician’s most iconic moments took place.

Located at the top of the exclusive Southgate complex at 434 East 52nd Street, the apartment spans three floors and includes an enormous 2,000-square-foot wraparound terrace that can be accessed from every room on the main floor. Not to mention, that the apartment as a whole delivers stunning panoramic views of the city— and even in the days before Instagram, Lennon knew a good backdrop when he saw one.

Alex Toussaint Swears by a Morning Scream

It wasn’t so long ago that Alex Toussaint was mopping floors and doing maintenance at the spinning studio Flywheel. Now he’s one of the most popular instructors on at-home streaming giant Peloton. So when the 28-year-old drops some inspirational patter—perhaps he’s feeling “extra hyped and definitely blessed,” one of his signatures—it just hits a little harder. It’s certainly a big part of what’s made the Long Island native such a crowd favorite.

Peloton has parlayed pandemic-enforced isolation into an absolutely massive year—the company’s stock has more than tripled in value since the beginning of March. But Toussaint has been at the company for ages, relatively speaking, having joined up in 2016. Now he digitally teaches thousands of riders each day, and keeps the inspirational talk going even off the bike: “I thrive knowing that every single day I have an opportunity to go live out my passion,” he tells GQ.

Mariah Carey is no stranger to soaking in giant, lavish baths, whether for an interview with Jimmy Kimmel or to show off her home for MTV’s Cribs. And while she’s certainly enjoyed her glamorous soaks, she reveals in her upcoming memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey, that the tub is also where she reflects and finds musical inspiration.

In the exclusive clip below from the audiobook from Audible shared exclusively with Billboard, the celebrated singer-songwriter narrates an excerpt in which she looks back at her humble beginnings while enjoying a bath, leading into a musical interlude.

“I was floating in a tub that was larger than the size of my entire living area just five years before, a room bigger than all of the living rooms in all of the 13 places I lived with my mother growing up,” the superstar reads with honesty. “The
