Prep for Your Toughest Races Like a Master Marathoner

On Wednesday, I spoke with Mebrahtom Keflezighi, perhaps the most successful American marathoner of all time. He won the New York City marathon in 2009 and the Boston Marathon in 2014. He won an Olympic silver medal and was internationally competitive until the age of 42, in a sport where people tend to peak much younger than that. On Monday, he will be the grand marshall of the Boston Marathon. Keflezighi possesses a wealth of running wisdom, much of which he shares in his book 26 Marathons. We spoke mainly about the science of running fast in difficult conditions and about how to keep a career going as one ages. Nicholas Thompson: As someone who ran lots of difficult courses …

The UK’s Tech Backlash Could Change the Internet

British officials took a swipe at global internet giants Monday, suggesting rules that would require the companies to proactively remove content the government views as illegal or “harmful,” and giving the government the right to shut down offending sites. The proposals, contained in a 102-page white paper, are aimed at combating the spread of disinformation, hate speech, online extremism, and child exploitation. If enacted as described, they would constitute some of the most stringent and far-reaching restrictions on internet speech by a major western democracy. But critics said the proposals fail to balance curbing harmful speech with free expression. Under current UK law, social media platforms and other online companies are shielded from liability for potentially illegal content posted by …

‘Base jumping’ whisky advert banned

The regulator said it received six complaints after the advert was broadcast on TV, video on demand and Instagram in December. It noted that the opening scene in all versions of the ad featured a man running and jumping off a cliff. ‘Extreme risk-taking behaviour’ The ASA said: “We noted that at that point in the ads, there was no suggestion that the male character had any super-human attributes or powers, or that he was part of a mythical world”. It also noted that the character was seen clenching his fists as he peered over the edge of the cliff, giving “the impression that he was nervous about jumping and was building up the courage to do so”.

Gabriel Jesus fires Manchester City past Brighton and into FA Cup final

Gabriel Jesus struck a first-half winner for Manchester City who defeated Brighton 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley By the standards Manchester City set themselves these days, it is fair to say this was not the most shimmering or elegant performance from Pep Guardiolas team. When, for example, was the last time they managed only four shots on target against an opponent? The official man-of-the-match award went to Anthony Knockaert of Brighton, rather than any of the players from the winning side, and the overall impression was that City peaked too early, scoring the games decisive goal after barely three minutes. Not that those details should matter greatly to Guardiola when his team still managed to maintain their …
