Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino backed Harry Kane to break more records after he scored twice in a comfortable home victory over Everton to become Spurs’ all-time Premier League goalscorer. Kane twice netted from close range – converting passes from Son Heung-min and Eric Dier – to take his Premier League tally to 98, one more than Teddy Sheringham scored for the club. The excellent Son opened the scoring at Wembley by finishing off Serge Aurier’s cross, and the South Korea international later hit a post as the hosts dominated. Christian…

Ed Note 11/16/2017: The Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop and Rap Kickstarter campaign ended successfully with a total of $ 368,841 funded by nearly 3,000 backers.

Put it on a pedestal, and many will shout it down, as several politicians (all men, all outraged) did, during a televised congressional debate, in 1990, when the art work was offered a permanent home, at a proposed museum at the University of the District of Columbia. Put it in storage, where it languished for the better part of fourteen years, between 1988 and 2002, and the injustice rankles. It’s likely that no one felt it more keenly than Chicago herself,…

Few cultural phenomena capture the complexity and tension of modern American life better than the ascendance of hip-hop and rap across the past four decades. Characterized by impassioned, rapid-fire lyrics laden with rhyme, alliteration and other poetic devices, the twin art forms have distilled both the lived experiences and the elusive aspirations of African-American communities all over the country into infectious, pulsating music.

The 31-year-old recorded his second league goal of the season in his second domestic game for Everton since returning to the club from Manchester United earlier this summer.
