first_img The partners will agree to certain measurable targets The Opposition will not sign the agreemen Story Highlights The long-awaited Social Partnership Agreement between the Government and various stakeholders – trade unions, private sector and civil society – will be signed next Wednesday, July 31, at King’s House.Prime Minister, the Most Hon Portia Simpson Miller, will sign on behalf of the Government.While the Opposition will not sign the agreement, Opposition Leader, Andrew Holness says “the Opposition supports the concept of a social partnership and we have and will continue to participate on the National Partnership Council.”The National Partnership Council, chaired by the Prime Minister, is comprised of representatives of the Government, Opposition, private sector, trade unions, civil society, academia and special interests. It is a forum for discussing national issues and for fostering collaboration and consensus.For a number of years there have been efforts to sign off on a Social Partnership Agreement. In 2011 a Code of Conduct was signed, and last year the Prime Minister reconvened the National Partnership Council, with a renewed effort to get the agreement signed.A document outlining the thrust of the agreement says the partners to the Social Partnership “reaffirm and recommit” to the principles of “social dialogue and partnership, specifically to further the process of deepening democracy and participatory decision-making and to engender meaningful participation of all partners in national development.”  The partners will agree to certain measurable targets, and mechanisms will be set up to monitor these targets.According to a Council document, “nothing short of a nationwide transformation of people and institutions around performance accountability, gender equality and collective responsibility, respect for human rights and civil liberties of all Jamaicans, as well as tolerance and maturity in conflict resolution will account for the realization of a more equal, safe, secure  and  prosperous Jamaica for all.”Co-ordinator for the National Partnership Council, Ambassador Burchell Whiteman, hails the upcoming signing as a “step in  the right direction and  an important move for a nation that is seized with the urgency of growth and balanced development.”He says he is pleased that the stakeholders will be “publicly demonstrating their commitment to the future of Jamaica, land we love.” Partners will “reaffirm and recommit” to the principles of social dialogue and democracylast_img read more

first_imgNova Scotians suffering from Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), a chronic retina disease, will soon have public funding for treatments to prevent and reverse the disease. The province announced today, Oct. 20, coverage for Lucentis treatment of AMD for beneficiaries of publicly funded drug programs such as Senior’s Pharmacare, Family Pharmacare and Community Services Pharmacare programs, effective Jan. 1. “Lucentis is an expensive drug, but by delivering the treatment in hospital-based eye clinics, using retinal specialists, we can improve efficiencies and reduce the budget impact by millions of dollars in the coming years,” said Health Minister Maureen MacDonald. “It is a creative approach and the right decision to provide better health care while living within our means.” The province is also announcing that patients who are currently receiving treatment for AMD with Avastin can also receive publicly funded therapy, if they and their physician wish to do so. Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration affects the central vision. It can cause blood and fluid to leak into the eye and lead to blindness. It tends to affect people age 50 or older with the vast majority of those affected older than 65. Lucentis and Avastin therapies will be provided to Nova Scotians who meet the clinical criteria. Patients who have private insurance will continue to access those resources. Patients have been paying about $1,800 to $2,000 per injection for Lucentis therapy, usually requiring six or more injections per year. Avastin therapy currently costs patients as much as $500 per injection. “I think the announcement of funding is wonderful news,” said Dr. Alan Cruess, district chief, Capital Health Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. “Lucentis has the potential to improve vision for people with wet AMD, especially if it’s caught early.” More than 800 Nova Scotians will benefit in the coming year. “These two treatment options will help to maintain the quality of life and independence of hundreds of Nova Scotians every year,” said Duncan Williams, CNIB director of government relations. “This is a wise investment of health dollars that will actually reduce the associated costs of vision loss on families and the province.” “For most Nova Scotians without private health insurance coverage, Lucentis is virtually unaffordable,” said Ms. MacDonald. “This will enable Nova Scotians from all walks of life with wet macular degeneration to access Lucentis.”last_img read more

first_imgLucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday directed officials in Allahabad and Varanasi districts to remain vigilant as the water levels in Ganga and Yamuna rivers neared the danger mark. Heavy rains over the past few days have caused the rivers to swell. A senior official said authorities in Allahabad and Varanasi have been asked to make all necessary arrangements to deal with the situation and flood ‘chowkis’, to monitor the water levels in the rivers, have been activated.

first_imgWINNIPEG – A Winnipeg man who worked as a children’s entertainer doing magic shows has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.Dan Kamenicky, also known as Dan the Magic Man, was charged with making and distributing child porn last year.He also had worked as an educational assistant with the Louis Riel School Division.With time served, Kamenicky has 40 months left in his sentence.Provincial court Judge Sidney Lerner also banned him for life from playgrounds, schools and community centres.Lerner said some of the images Kamenicky took were of children he worked with at school.“The magnitude of the abuse of trust is profound,” Lerner said Thursday.Police have said they were alerted by the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children that Winnipeg computer addresses were being used to upload images and videos of child pornography.Investigators said there was no link between the charges and the children Kamenicky entertained.Kamenicky had also worked with children’s programs and at summer magic camps at the University of Manitoba dating back to 2012.His lawyer, Dan Manning, said Kamenicky has taken responsibility for his actions.“He recognizes the harm that he has caused the community,” Manning said outside court.“He didn’t touch any child and he has some steps to take in the future to deal with some of the issues that he has.”Police discovered videos Kamenicky had taken of girls in public places over a period of at least three years.(CJOB)last_img read more

Rabat – Whoever said Muslim women are afraid to get their hands dirty is swimming in a sea of stereotypes. Rajae and Najlae, two young women from Tetouan, have proven to Morocco (and the world) that when veiled Muslim women have a dream, they persevere to make it happen.As part of the U.S. Government Let Girls Learn initiative recently promoted in Morocco by U.S First Lady Michelle Obama, USAID (United States Agency for International Development) recently released an inspirational video of two young Moroccan women pursuing their dream: studying to become mechanics, in the hopes of opening their own mechanics shop they hope to call “Princess Auto.”“I chose mechanics to break down barriers imposed on women in this field that is monopolized by men,” 23-year-old Najlae Lashqar says in the video. The two sisters are currently completing their second year studying mechanics and are the only two women in their class of 8.Gesturing with greasy hands and wearing mechanic jumpsuits, the two passionate sisters explained that ever since their childhood, they have always loved everything related to cars, engines and motorbikes.The duo did not hesitate to bring up the difficulties they face in the job market. “The problem is clear: there are no jobs [for women].” explains Najlae. Her sister, Rajae, adds, “When you go to the companies to ask for a job, they tell you, ‘Just leave and I will call you later.’”Their shared dream of opening their own garage has lasted throughout the years, driven by their desire to break down walls of judgement once more. ”Princess Auto,” according to them, would allow women who have cars to bring their own cars for fixing instead of asking their brothers or other men to do so. read more

On Thursday, after LeBron James and the Miami Heat won their second consecutive N.B.A. championship, I noted on Twitter that James was on the same pace as the Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan. Both James and Jordan won their first championship at 27 and their second at 28, I wrote. Jordan went on to win four more N.B.A. titles, for a total of six.Mike Segar/Reuters LeBron James and Michael Jordan were about the same age when they won a second championship.My statement depended on a technicality, I later discovered: Jordan’s biological age was 28 when he won his first championship, in 1991, and 29 when he won his second, in 1992. However, basketball statisticians generally define a player’s age differently: by how old he was as of Feb. 1 of an N.B.A. season, the rough midpoint of the basketball calendar. Jordan’s birthday is Feb. 17.Those semantics aside, it is worth considering just how likely James might be to match or exceed Jordan’s six titles. (From this point on, we’ll use basketball statisticians’ definition of age.)Players like Jordan and James are so rare that it can be risky to compare them with anyone. Still, one reasonably useful benchmark is to evaluate players who, like James and Jordan, had won at least one Most Valuable Player award and at least one N.B.A. title as of their age-28 season, meaning that they had achieved the pinnacle of both individual and team success.By my count, there were 13 such players before James. On average, they won about two additional championships (more precisely, an average of 1.9) after their age-28 season. So a reasonable over-under line for James might be two more N.B.A. titles, or four total.It is tough to say exactly what James’s odds of catching Jordan might be, because the average conceals a wide range of outcomes among the individual players. Four of the players on the list — Magic Johnson, Moses Malone, Bob Pettit and Dave Cowens — never won another championship after their age-28 season. But four others — Jordan, Bill Russell, Bob Cousy and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — won at least four more titles.James needs four more championships to catch Jordan, so one estimate of his odds might be 4 chances out of 13, or about 30 percent. But some of the favorable precedents, like Russell, came in an era when teams had far more ability to retain their players. Among the players on the list who played their age-28 season during the salary-cap era (since 1984-85), only Jordan won four or more titles.Jeff Haynes/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images Jordan after his fifth title with the Bulls.It seems safe to say that you would not want to bet on James at even money. There are just too many things that can go wrong with a player’s career as he ages: injury or illness, early retirement, bad teammates or bad luck.Even this year’s Heat began the season with only about a 30 percent chance of winning the title, according to the Las Vegas odds. That percentage roughly matches the historical likelihood of an N.B.A. team’s repeating as champion, which is 33 percent.So James’s chances of winning a third title next season in Miami are probably about 1 in 3. After that, his chances begin to decline. For one thing, it is less certain that James will be surrounded by strong teammates. (James has the right to opt out of his contract after next season, and even if he stays in Miami, teammates like Dwyane Wade are already seeing their skills atrophy.)More important, players in team sports typically peak in skill in their mid- to late 20s, meaning that James’s game may begin to wane. The N.B.A. is a superstar’s league, and if James goes from being M.V.P.-caliber to mere All-Star within a few years, it will considerably hurt his odds of winning more titles.I have estimated a player’s chances of winning an N.B.A. title based on his win shares, a statistic calculated by Basketball-Reference.com that measures overall value to a team. Since the introduction of the salary cap in 1984-85, excluding the two regular seasons (1998-99 and 2011-12) that were shortened by labor disputes, the best player in the league in a given season has averaged about 18 win shares, which is a reasonably good match for James’s performance over the last several years. The model estimates that such a player has about a 20 percent or 25 percent chance of winning the championship in today’s N.B.A. environment.What about the fifth-best player in the league — someone equivalent to the worst player on the All-N.B.A. team? That player has averaged about 13 win shares, which translates to only about a 10 percent chance of winning the championship.The 10th-best player in the N.B.A. at a given time has only about a 7 percent chance of winning a title, according to the model. And the 25th-best player — someone who might be the last reserve added to one of the conference All-Star teams — has about a 5 percent chance.That is not much better than an N.B.A. player chosen at random, who has a 3.3 percent chance of becoming a champion by virtue of being on one of the 30 teams. A borderline All-Star in the N.B.A., in other words, is much closer to being a role player than a superstar, at least when it comes to his odds of winning a championship.James, of course, will have considerable freedom to pick his employer. If he puts winning titles above all other considerations, he could sign on for any role with the team he perceived as having the best chance to win the championship in a given season.Few players in N.B.A. history have been willing to take things to quite that extreme. Instead, superstars expect teams to build around them — even if they are past their prime, and even if it means something as inglorious as Jordan’s late years spent with the Washington Wizards.One can forgive Jordan, who did not have anything left to prove. But to match him, James will need to win two or three more titles over the next several seasons while he still plays at an M.V.P. level, which will require good health and some good luck. Then he may need to chase the last couple of titles by being willing to play the right role with the right club.,On Thursday, after LeBron James and the Miami Heat won their second consecutive N.B.A. championship, I noted on Twitter that James was on the same pace as the Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan.

first_imgWill there ever be a Facebook app for the iPad? Some thought the possibility seemed unlikely following a Facebook mobile event late last year, where Mark Zuckerberg responded to that question by saying the iPad was a computer — and not really mobile in the truest sense.Zuck doubled back, however, adding that “we all love Apple products” and that the iPad isn’t mobile in the same way as our smartphones. That certainly sounds like someone who was tipping his hand ever so slightly. And perhaps Zuckerberg was coyly hinting at the soon-to-be existence of a big-screen version of the iOS Facebook app.Marvin Bernal, a university student from Toronto studying computer engineering, discovered something interesting about the latest Facebook app for the iPhone. If users of a jailbroken iPad change the UIDDeviceFamily in the app to a 2, the Facebook app offers up a totally different view.One of the biggest changes you’ll note is that Facebook adds a chat sidebar that looks and functions very much like the one you may have used while browsing the Facebook website on your desktop or laptop. Unsurprisingly, much of the rest of the app feels mostly like a scaled-up version of its iPhone cousin — though the coupling of the mobile app experience with that of browsing the Facebook site on the iPad is certainly a compelling reason to use it.Since the code has already been sitting in the App Store for a while, it likely won’t take long before the new universal Facebook App is ready to install on your non-jailbroken iPad, too. In the meantime, those of you who don’t want to tinker with anything and are OK with waiting can check out the images posted over at TechCrunch for a sneak peek.More at TechCrunchlast_img read more

first_img Categories: California News, Local San Diego News, National & International News AP Posted: December 18, 2018 Judges push back against ‘zero-tolerance’ immigration policy AP, center_img Activists for migrant rights surround a group of Honduran asylum seekers camped on U.S. soil at San Diego’s Otay Mesa port of entry, seen from Tijuana, Mexico, Monday, Dec. 17, 2018. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo)SAN DIEGO (AP) — The 14 defendants had been charged with entering the country illegally. But there was a problem: When their cases were called in court, they could not show up because they had already been deported.U.S. Magistrate Judge William Gallo quickly concluded that none of the migrants could be prosecuted — a decision that struck at the heart of the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy, which calls for treating illegal border crossing as a common crime. He dismissed all the charges and ordered that all bond money be returned.The same scene played out every day for several weeks in San Diego — another example of judges challenging President Donald Trump’s moves on immigration in ways large and small. Last month, a different judge halted an administration policy to deny asylum to people who enter the country illegally.The dismissals did not free any migrants or allow any of them back into the U.S. But the rulings defeated the purpose of zero tolerance, which is to notch convictions.Gallo and other California judges forced the government to choose between deporting migrants immediately or risking that the criminal cases against them will be dropped. To avoid getting cases dismissed, the administration could not conduct the type of lightning-quick prosecutions that it practices elsewhere along the border.Federal prosecutors introduced the mass hearings on immigration charges in California in July, adopting a model that has been in place for years in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The hearings soon began running past 6 p.m. regularly.Defense attorneys frequently objected that they didn’t have enough time to consult with their clients, who appeared in the same clothes they wore crossing the border a day or so earlier.Then, on Sept. 17, Gallo announced that judges would no longer accept guilty pleas at initial appearances, as they do in Arizona and Texas. Instead, they began setting second hearings for five days later. Immigrants who posted bail before their return dates were deported.“The government, in many respects, was duplicitous,” Gallo said on a recent Friday, referring to the decision to deport defendants before they could return to court for resolution of their cases.On the same day, Gallo dismissed charges against the 14 defendants, many of them Mexican men who were caught hiding amid boulders and thick brush in rugged mountains east of San Diego.If convicted, first-time offenders can be punished by up to six months in prison. They can be charged with a felony if caught again.The administration countered on Oct. 9, saying it would not deport people until their criminal cases were completed. That stopped cases from being dismissed but introduced new problems: Keeping people in custody for longer periods strained detention space and imposed higher costs.“They wanted it to be a one-day thing, like it is across the whole border, because it’s cheaper,” said Jami Ferrara, who represents defense attorneys on a panel with judges and prosecutors working on the changes. “It’s not a cheap system.”It is unclear how many cases were dismissed in San Diego, but defense attorneys estimate it was hundreds.The legal skirmishes in San Diego court have not drawn a public reaction from Trump, and the Justice Department and Customs and Border Protection agency declined to comment.It costs the Marshals Service an average of almost $90 a day to house a defendant. In San Diego, space is at a premium, with room for only 815 people at the main holding facility.To address any space limitations, the Marshals Service has agreements with state and local governments and the federal Bureau of Prisons, as well as contracts with private companies, spokesman Drew Wade said.Many defendants are unable to make bail because some judges insist they be released to “a third-party custodian” in California, often a relative who is responsible for making sure they return to court. But some family members may be reluctant to come forward if they are in the country illegally, and many live far from San Diego.Defense attorneys have objected to the requirement.“It is extremely unusual for courts to require a third-party custodian in misdemeanor cases,” said David Loy, legal director for the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial counties. “These are basically federal petty offenses at the lowest level.”Mass hearings on immigration charges were introduced in Del Rio, Texas, in 2005 and spread within a few years to other federal courts on the border— except California. Courtrooms in Tucson, Arizona, and McAllen, Texas, filled with about 70 people a day who pleaded guilty at their first appearance and were typically sentenced to time already served.The administration said in May that it would prosecute every illegal entry under zero tolerance. But after a backlash over widespread separation of families, officials retreated in June by generally exempting adults who come with their children. Days later, a federal judge ruled against separating families.In San Diego, each defense attorney is assigned no more than four clients a day and, on most days there are only 10 attorneys, resulting in a cap of 40.Fred Sheppard, an assistant U.S. attorney, recently said in court that the Border Patrol arrests 90 to 140 people a day in San Diego, implying that many are not prosecuted. (The administration says there has been a “slight uptick” in families crossing illegally and turning themselves in since a large caravan of Central American migrants reached Tijuana, Mexico, last month.)The prosecutor spoke as the government presented 43 people for prosecution, three over that day’s cap. Three men entered the jury box and were told by Gallo that their cases were being dismissed because they had not had a chance to speak with an attorney.“The system is burgeoning,” the judge said.

first_imgWith today’s expiration of the one-year extension of the 2008 Farm Bill, coupled with the shutdown of the federal government, the American Soybean Association (ASA) lamented another failed opportunity on the part of Congress to provide the nation’s soybean farmers with the certainty they need to remain competitive and plan for the future. Compounding this most recent Congressional dysfunction is the expiration of funding for key U.S. Department of Agriculture programs as a result of the federal shutdown of what are improperly considered “non-essential” government activities.“Congress has yet again failed its most basic duty: to debate and pass legislation and, frankly, we’ve run out of ways to say we’re disappointed,” said ASA President Danny Murphy, a soybean, corn and wheat farmer from Canton, Miss. “The farm bill authorized and provides critical funding for myriad programs on which farmers depend, including key conservation programs, indispensable foreign food assistance and market development activities, and industry-advancing research. These and other programs have helped to make American agriculture a bright spot throughout the recession and into the recovery. We’ve created jobs, supported rural communities and fed our neighbors both at home and abroad. All of these programs will come to a grinding halt tomorrow because this Congress is more interested in scoring partisan political points than serving its constituents. Once again, Congress fails to act and American farmers pay the price.”The expiration of the farm bill means multiple programs on which soybean farmers depend will cease. Conservation programs affected include the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), and the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). Foreign aid programs affected by the farm bill’s expiration include the Food for Peace Program, the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program, and the Emerging Markets Program (EMP). Particularly impactful for the soybean industry will be the expiration of funding for the Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (Cooperator) Program (FMD).“Shutting down the MAP and FMD programs will bring immediate and harsh consequences for the soy industry,” said Murphy. “Soybeans are the nation’s most valuable agricultural export. Our overseas market development arms, the U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) and the World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH), work with foreign buyers and carry out trade servicing and demand building activities. Both USSEC and WISHH count on critical funds from FMD and MAP to operate offices and carry out demand building work around the globe. A cutoff of funds from the Foreign Agriculture Service will force our industry to discontinue program activities. Congress’ shortsighted failure to pass a farm bill isn’t just a political embarrassment; it will cost the industry global market share almost immediately.”Adding to the frustration for farmers is the fact that innumerable USDA agencies will close until further notice as a result of today’s shutdown of the federal government. Due to the lack of appropriations funding, USDA staff deemed “non-essential” will be prevented from staffing their offices, which Murphy also says will have a significant impact on soybean farmers. “Farmers depend on these agencies,” he said. “Whether it’s the county Farm Service Agency office, staff at the Risk Management Agency, market access work done by the Foreign Agricultural Service or Office of U.S. Trade Representative, or the work done at the Agricultural Research Service, soybean farmers have a longstanding and valuable working relationship with our federal partners at USDA, and their absence for the foreseeable future will be painfully apparent.”“Congressional gridlock has cost farmers yet again, and we demand a stop to the political gamesmanship,” added Murphy. “It’s time for our elected officials to remember who they represent and get to work passing a farm bill that works for American farmers.”last_img read more

Motorola Moto Z4 Review • Motorola Moto Z4 review: The cheapest 5G phone you can buy but shouldn’t “China is also home to many major 5G equipment suppliers and smartphone vendors, which will be responsible for an aggressive marketing push over the next few years,” Nicole Peng, vice president of mobility at Canalys, said in the release. “But mass market adoption of 5G smartphones does not necessarily mean a successful 5G deployment. Full 5G deployment will take much longer, and be much more complex than the previous network generation, in order to realize the benefits of 5G beyond eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broadband).”Canalys estimates 5G phones will reach approximately 800 million units and have 51.4% of the market share. Of that number, China will account for 34% of the number with North America making up 18.8%. So far, the 5G-enabled phones available to buy are the Galaxy S10 5G,  LG V50 ThinQ, OnePlus 7 Pro, Oppo Reno 5G and Motorola’s Moto Z4 with the 5G Moto mod.  Walmart $499 Post a comment 5G is coming to take over the mobile world.

first_imgBNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Saturday said the media reports on their chairperson’s release on parole and taking oath by their party MPs-elect are nothing but a baseless speculation, reports UNB.Talking to reports at the house of former Cumilla MP Monirul Haq Chowdhury, he also said they want their chairperson to be released on bail, not on parole, as the cases she has been facing are bailable.Fakhrul went to Cumilla’s Noagaon village under Sadar Dakshin upazila to exchange views with BNP leaders and activists who were affected and injured in violence during the 11th parliamentary election.He said their chairperson deserves bail in the cases she was convicted and made accused, but the government has deliberately been obstructing her bail. “That’s why our leader (Khaleda) has been in jail for 14 months.”The BNP leader said some convicted ruling party leaders remain out of jail, and even they were made ministers.He also alleged that the government is trying to shift Khaleda to Keraniganj Central Jail as part of an evil motive.Fakhrul said the government has kept Khaleda in jail as it wants to ‘restore’ one-party Baksal rule.He also termed a local court’s order to freeze three accounts BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman and his wife Zubaida Rahman in a bank in Britain as absurd.The BNP leader urged the party leaders and workers to get ready for a movement to restore democracy and free Khaleda from jail.Later, Fakhrul provided 95 affected party leaders and activists in Cumilla-10 with financial assistance.Earlier addressing a roadside rally at Burichang here, Fakhrul said Awami League has destroyed the main spirit of the Liberation War by snatching people’s democratic rights. “They (AL) annihilated democracy and snatched people’s rights only to hang onto power.”He also said the government has been in power depending on guns and law enforcers as it has no public support.last_img read more

On this milestone, take a stroll and celebrate your favourite writers in London. Julie’s Restaurant, 135 Portland Road, West LondonThe good folks at Julie’s have been feeding Hollywood royalty for well over thirty years. A deceptive, labyrinthine restaurant of secret alcoves and eclectic decor from medieval banqueting tables to cushioned cubbyholes, this Notting Hill venue is reliably good for dining in seclusion. Celebrities, including the likes of Ginger Spice, Rachel Stevens and Joseph Fiennes, are understandably fond of this set-up, so no rubber-necking around corners. Just sit back to enjoy pan-European dishes like calves liver Veneziana with squash raviolini and crispy bacon (£22), or go for the good-value £30 set including starter, main, dessert and coffee – and do all your celeb-spotting discretely on your way to the loos!Nearest Tube stop: Holland Park (Central Line) Spotted any Tinseltowners in your neck of the woods? Let us know where to head in the comments section below!Penny at The Old Vic, The Cut, SouthwarkUntil recently known as The Pit Bar for it’s generous basement location below the Old Vic Theatre, the artisan cafe Penny has a super-relaxed vibe that draws a varied crowd, from students to theatre luvvies. Though it’s too early to tell whether Penny will be a magnet for the stars in the same way as The Pit (the changeover happened in September 2015) it’s worth lingering after a show with a glass of Huré Frères Invitation Brut NV (£9 a glass) to see who pops by. Look out for familiar faces who will be working the stage, including veteran board-treader Timothy Spall (Peter Pettigrew from Harry Potter) who will be in The Caretaker from March until May 2016. With sharing platters (from £12) seasonal juices and craft beers on offer, it’s also a good place to mix with the pre-theatre set.Nearest Tube stop: Waterloo (Bakerloo, Jubilee, Northern and Waterloo & City lines) Cut at 45 Park Lane, Dorchester Hotel, Mayfair, West LondonChef Wolfgang Puck’s chain of extra-refined American steak restaurants stretches across the world and this exclusive setting in the Mayfair Dorchester hotel is the perfect way to a carnivore’s heart – and several celebrity’s stomachs, it seems. The ceilings soar, the chandeliers sparkle and a Porterhouse steak for two is £96 so it might be best reserved for special occasions, but hey, if it’s good enough for the Jolie-Pitts, it’s good enough for us. If you’re feeling the pinch but still want to get the experience, stop in for brunch and you can enjoy the poshest omelette you’ll ever have, complete with wild mushrooms, gruyère cheese and roasted fingerling potatoes, for a more modest £16.Nearest Tube stop: Hyde Park Corner (Piccadilly line) Groucho Club, 45 Dean Street, SohoOnce inside the Groucho Club, you’re required to switch off your phones and hand over cameras so you won’t catch any celebrities in the midst of doing something they shouldn’t be. It’s quite the exclusive member’s only club – Madonna had her birthday party here in 1987 – so naturally, getting in is the hardest part. Not a member? Finding someone who is might not be as tricky as you think, as the main clientele is from the publishing, arts, media and advertising industries, as well as big-name music and film stars. Alternatively, if you’re naturally gifted with people skills, hang around outside and chum up to those passing through the double doors. It’s well worth it – the Michaelis Boyd designed interiors ooze class with their retro-modern prints and it’s impossible not to bump into celebrities like Stephen Fry and Kate Moss.Nearest Tube stop: Leicester Square (Piccadilly and Northern line)last_img read more
