      What's on TV tonight: the Brit Awards 2017 and The Royal House of Windsor 

      Richard Sanders and Paul Copeland’s entertaining trawl through 100 years of rule by the Windsors is by no means a reappraisal of the Queen and her family tree, but instead a reaffirmation of what we already knew – that this is a family of tenacious survivors, many of whose members have been locked in a debilitating struggle between personal interest and national duty at some stage in their lives. While the scandal comes towards the end of this opener, with Edward VIII’s abdication, his marriage to American divorcee Wallis Simpson, and his flirtation with Nazi Germany, the most enlightening material comes at the start and the story behind George V’s rebranding of his family as Windsors in the light of rising anti-German sentiment across the country.

    • Gymnastics-Raisman keeps eye on Tokyo during 'crazy' downtime

      American gymnast Aly Raisman has been caught up in a whirlwind since helping the United States to its golden haul in Rio and the triple Olympic champion is waiting for her world to stop spinning before setting her sights on the 2020 Tokyo Games. Raisman, who captained the 'Final Five' U.S. women to the most dominant Olympic victory in the team event six months ago, will be 26 when she bids for her third Olympics, hoping to defy gymnastics' stereotype as a sport built for petite teenagers. The Boston-born Raisman is in no great hurry to plunge back into competition, however, knowing a year off to freshen up could be her best chance of building motivation for another tilt at surviving the cut-throat competition to make the U.S. team.

      Michigan State University Provides Least Helpful Solution For Racism Ever

      It looks like Michigan State University students are missing out on one major aspect of the college experience: dorm room whiteboards. Because after someone wrote a racial slur on a whiteboard, the school decided to do away with them entirely. According to MLive, The Lansing NAACP wrote on its Facebook page that "a young African-American honors student" had the "N-word" written on her whiteboard. More »

      Australia seeks full inclusion in Asian Summer Games

      Australia hopes to bring a full delegation of athletes to the 2022 Asian Summer Games in China and is seeking approval from the continent's Olympic council, Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) President John Coates has said. Australia, a member of the Oceania Olympic federation, has sent 30 athletes to the ongoing Asian Winter Games in Japan's northern city of Sapporo as a "guest" delegation following an invitation from the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). Coates said it was too late for Australia to compete in next year's Summer Games in Indonesia but their bid for inclusion at the 2022 event in China's eastern city of Hangzhou would be tabled at an OCA meeting in September.
