Stubble trouble: Simon Cowell, Sepp Blatter and Sebastian Coe fall on rough times

theguardian.com — To some charity gala or other, and a photo that should clearly have been captioned The Once and Future King. On the right is the heir to the throne; off to the far left is the man who once ruled ITV, but is now beset by rumours that his X Factor is to be axed.

We shouldn’t be enjoying the Trump ascendency - but who can look away?

theguardian.com — In the space of two elections, US politics has graduated from "Yes we can" to "Because I can". Barack Obama's 2008 catchphrase - memorably dismissed by Christopher Hitchens as "the sort of thing parents might chant encouragingly to a child slow on the potty-training uptake" - has given way to Donald Trump, whose MO is so domineering that it has no need of being formalised as a slogan.

Coleen Rooney encapsulates the celebrity placenta-eating tradition

theguardian.com — One of the greatest crosses to bear for the female celebrity is having to ingest your own placenta once you've delivered your baby. A cultural tradition dating back to as early as 2003, it's fair to say the practice is hugely misunderstood by non-celebrities.

@roslynfuller @Factozoidal Law is a little like surgery, where the neonatal surgeon is better regarded than the bones guy

@roslynfuller @Factozoidal you will hardly find that contested by many top lawyers or judges. And no, I'm not talking abt ones in "mergers"
