  • Ocean swells from the storm are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

‘The Queen’s Gambit,’ Starring a Magnetic Anya Taylor-Joy, Is a Shrewd Study of Genius: TV Review

Click here to read the full article.

In order to be a truly great chess player — not just a good one, but one of the greats — you need to possess a canny combination of concentration, acuity, and nerve. What seems like a simple board of 64 squares quickly becomes a battlefield; the key to winning the ensuing fight is being able to analyze and anticipate an opponent’s moves without your face betraying a single calculation. Chess is such a mentally punishing, esoteric game — which makes it extremely hard to portray onscreen with half the thrill it might have in reality, especially if the viewer doesn’t know all the rules (and chances are, you don’t). But “The Queen’s Gambit” manages to personalize the game and its players thanks to clever storytelling and, in Anya Taylor-Joy, a lead actor so magnetic that when she stares down the camera lens,

Rudy Giuliani: “At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate”

Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has dismissed as a “complete fabrication” a clip from a new Borat film appearing to show him with hands down his trousers.

“I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment,” fthe former New York City mayor tweeted.

He was referring to an episode in the film, starring UK comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, where he is interviewed by an actress posing as a TV journalist.

The actress plays Borat’s daughter in the comedy Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

The film – which is due to be released on Friday – is the sequel to Cohen’s 2006 hit Borat, where he played a fictional reporter from Kazakhstan.

In the follow-up filmed earlier this year, Baron Cohen again tries to ambush US politicians and members of the public.

In suspected case of mistaken identity, man admits to murder in Red Wing street

A 20-year-old man has pleaded guilty to murder in a suspected case of mistaken identity that left a Floridian shot in a Red Wing street.

Michael R. Reyes of Red Wing admitted in Goodhue County District Court this week to second-degree murder in connection with the killing in June 2019 of D’andre S. Hicks of Tampa.

The plea deal calls for first-degree murder and several other felony counts to be dismissed. It also includes giving Reyes a sentence of 19½ years. With credit for time in jail since his arrest, that would leave about 10 years to be served in prison, with the balance on supervised release. Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 18.

On June 25, 2019, police officers saw the 28-year-old Hicks bleeding and lying on Plum Street outside a Kwik Trip convenience store.

Anthony Rowe, who identified himself to police as Hicks’ brother, said he heard the gunfire
