bette midler in hello, dolly!photo: julieta cervantesafter hamilton dominated both the tony nominations and winners last year, this year’s race doesn’t have a clear front-runner. sure, there are few big shows — bette midler’s hello, dolly! revival, for instance — but none are set to dominate all the categories in quite the same way that hamilton did. meanwhile, a few splashy names are out of contention: the jake gyllenhaal–led sunday in the park with george is sitting out the competition, while glenn close’s performance in sunset boulevard isn’t eligible (she already won a tony playing norma desmond in 1995). so, who will have the honor of being celebrated by kevin spacey himself at this year’s ceremony, on june 11? tune into the livestream to watch christopher jackson an...

the desire to create is a hard one to kill. i’ve had it all my life, from the comic books and music i made with my grade school friend rick to the books i wrote and tried to write to the projects i built over the years. now it’s become easier and, in a way, harder, to make something meaningful online, so after shutting down one startup last year, i’ve decided to work on another one, jaywalk, with a new team.my first startup was a deep learning experience. i learned about entrepreneurship firsthand, experienced the ups and downs (mostly downs) of building, raising and, ultimately, folding a company. i watched one friendship bend and another break under the unique pressures of dreaming something and watching the dream choke.it sucked.after all, i thought i was special. i’ve written a...

city's draw at middlesbrough on sunday means that they are now level on points with the reds, but also on goal difference. while jurgen klopp's men would currently edge out city on goals scored, it is pep guardiola's side who have the easier run-in and will be looking to make up those valuable five goals. should they be finish the season level on points, goal difference and goals scored then the premier league rules state that "they shall be deemed to occupy the same position in the table."however, if the two are in fourth and fifth - fighting it out for the champions league - then they must be split.indeed, even if one finishes third and the other in fourth then there would need to be clarity on who faces a champions league playoff in august and who enters directly into the group stage.he...
