Indian grapplers Yogeshwar Dutt, Babita Kumari, Geetika Jhakar assured of silver medal 31.7.2014 DNA: Mumbai
Three Indian grapplers, including Olympic bronze medallist Yogeshwar Dutt, qualified for the finals in their respective weight categories to ensure at least three silver for India on the third and final day of the wrestling competition in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow on Thursday. Yogeshwar (men's 65kg freestyle), Geetika Jhakar (women's 63kg) and Babita Kumari (women's 55kg) made the finals, while Pawan Kumar (men's 86kg) will fight for the bronze medal. Yogeshwar used his trademark 'fitele' (leg-twisting) technique to great effect in all his three bouts of the day so far in the men's 65kg category. First, he beat Alex Gladkov of Scotland 4-0 as he rolled over the mat a few times by grabbing both the legs of his opponent to win the bout in style. Yogeshwar then easily defeated another Scottish wrestler Gareth Jones in the quarterfinals by employing the same technique he had used while winning bronze in London Olympics. The Indian pressed his hand on Jone's head, positioned himself at the side of his ...

Woman with middle name 'Skywalker' told she infringes copyright 31.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Laura Matthews tried to renew her passport with the signature L. Skywalker, referencing the Star Wars character, but was told that her adopted name is a trademark and cannot be accepted

More on Star Wars: Episode VII

Her namesake may be able to travel across galaxies in Star Wars, but Laura Matthews from Southend  whose middle name is Skywalker isn't even able to get on a budget airline to the Med.

The 29-year-old added the middle name by deed poll in 2008, "for a bit of a laugh", and recently tried to renew her passport, complete with her new name and the signature L. Skywalker. Her application was refused, with the Home Office telling her it "will not recognise a change to a name which is subject to copyright or trademark".

This means war: why the fashion headdress must be stopped 30.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The Native American headdress is a common sight at festivals. It has also been appropriated by fashion brands and stars such as Pharrell Williams. But many are now fighting back against what they see as a crude act of racial stereotyping The right to dress like an idiot is a fundamental principle of festival culture, but at this weekend's Bass Coast electronic music festival in British Columbia, Canada , one particular kind of idiot will not be welcome. Last week, the organisers told festival-goers that Native American feathered headdresses, also known as war bonnets, would not be permitted on site. "We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets," they wrote on the festival's Facebook page. "They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated. Bass Coast festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people." The coverage the festival's policy has received is as revealing as the decision itself. Last ...

Made for you: Prada's customised shoes and the rise of personalised fashion 30.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Tailor-made brogues, customised silk scarves, monogrammed trunks personalisation is big news at luxury brands and on the high street, as customers are increasingly enjoying taking control If those who buy Prada shoes are already a niche, it's now possible to add even more exclusivity. In August, the Italian brand plans to launch a customisation service for its classic brogues. With 32 colours available, across the uppers and trademark foam soles, your own personal Prada shoes complete with monogrammed initials on the bottom are, with a payment of around £740 and wait of 60 days, within your sights. Such an idea allows consumers to play designer with all of those colours, it's kind of like Dulux cards for fashion. It's one that chimes with our need to regularly tweak everything from the background of our Twitter page to the milk-to-shot ratio in our morning ...

Zhou Yongkang: oil boss who became China's third most powerful man 29.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Zhou, now under investigation for alleged corruption, climbed the ranks in oil sector before making transition into politics The Chinese Communist party prizes conformity, and many of its aesthetic trademarks the uniform black suits, the turgid speeches call to mind a massively powerful machine, its anonymous parts in perfect lockstep. Within this system, the fallen security tsar Zhou Yongkang China's third most powerful man until he retired in 2012 was a rare anomaly. The further he receded from view, the more attention he commanded. On Tuesday, the Communist party put an end to months of speculation when it announced an inquiry into Zhou , 71, "for grave violations of discipline", shorthand for corruption. He is the highest-level figure in the party's history to be investigated for graft. But for years prior, profiles of Zhou painted him as China's Dick Cheney, his immense power matching only his moral decay. He certainly looks the part: while China's president, Xi Jinping, carries a perennial ...

Rooibos tea trademark awarded to South Africa in deal with EU 28.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Makers of the amber tea in South Africa will have ownership of the name, which means 'red bush' in Afrikaans

It may have a way to go to catch up with China or India, but South Africa's place on the global tea map is assured after a legal victory for its homegrown plant, rooibos.

The unique tea which means "red bush" in Afrikaans has been proudly grown there for generations, with health benefits for babies, the elderly and even animals. But as rooibos's popularity has increased abroad companies in America and France have made audacious bids to trademark the name.

Ian Bell returns to form as England extend advantage, take lead towards 500 against India 28.7.2014 DNA: Wide Angle
Ian Bell returned to form in spectacular fashion as he hit a superb unbeaten 133 against India to help England strengthen their dominant position on the second day of the third test on Monday. Bell recovered from a tentative start to exhibit trademark elegance, bringing up his first hundred in 26 innings by thumping Ravindra Jadeja down the ground for six before hitting the spinner for two more boundaries and another maximum in the same over. England, 1-0 down in the series, reached 452 for five in their first innings at tea after losing Joe Root and Mooen Ali in the afternoon session. Gary Ballance, who shared a stand of 142 with Bell, was the victim of a poor decision just before lunch when he was given out caught behind for 156, despite no hint of an edge. After the interval, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni opted to utilise his seamers in one over spells, attempting to break England's concentration. It paid dividends early on as Root got a regulation edge to Dhoni after being tempted into a prod ...

Charming Usain Bolt sounds unconvincing on stars absence 26.7.2014 DNA: Urban Tales
He was charming. He was full of wit and good humour and he also brought an almost audible sigh of relief through the whole of Glasgow and Commonwealth Games community as he touched down in Glasgow. On arrival at the conference, Bolt came out with his trademark lightning bolt pose with a group of school children and the Games' official mascot Clyde. He was charming alright. And he steered of controversy when asked about his thoughts on the Scottish independence referendum. He smiled and said, "I didn't even know that." Yet, Usain Bolt, winner of six Olympic gold medals and eight world titles, was most unconvincing, when he said, "I don't think anyone has dropped on purpose." He was referring to the absence of so many other stars at these Games. "It happens in the Olympics, it happens in the World Championships. It's one of those things.'' Bolt also buried his head in his hands while laughing when asked if he had any plans to pull out himself. ''That's a very weird question,'' he said. ''I am here to run. ...
