The Global Search for Education: How Should We Measure Success?
Huffington Post - about 1 year
"We see far too many kids who suffer from debilitating health issues, such as depression, eating disorders, perfectionism, severe sleep deprivation, and anxiety. We know parents may be worried about stepping off the fast-track, but we urge them to consider the big picture and the ultimate health and well being of their children." -- Dr. Denise Pope "Overloaded and Underprepared: Strategies for Stronger Schools and Healthy, Successful Kids," is written for teachers, school leaders, parents and students interested in shifting the paradigm towards a healthier, better prepared and more productive life for our children. The book is timely given all the media focus on the pressures students everywhere are under as well as the mounting evidence that despite the ever-increasing homework load, kids are still not learning the important 21st century skills they need to succeed in the world - skills such as resilience, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. The authors of the ...

Francis Levy: The Servant
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Saying that The Servant is about reality is like saying that a great poem like "Ozymandias" is about reality. "Ozymandias" is about reality, but it has a peculiar relationship to reality. Thus you could say the Joseph Losey masterpiece, with screenplay by Harold Pinter, currently revived at Film Forum (today is the last day of the run), is about colonialism, about sado-masochistic sexuality, or about servitude (Dirk Bogarde's portrayal of the title character, Hugo Barrett, is a tour de force). The iconography of colonialism is everywhere from the Georgian mansion with its military portrait, the sexuality with its mixture of submission and resignation and the master servant relation which gets reflected in the convex mirror brilliantly based on van Eyck's, "The Arnolfini Marriage." And then there is this one piece of narrative which brings everything together. Tony (James Fox), the fey upper crust master is building cities in the Brazilian jungle, while in effect the movie cha ...

    FORTIES
  • 1987
    Age 45
    After his stroke, the couple reunited and Miles cared for him. "I would be dead without her", Bolt said in 1987, "When she's away, my life takes a nosedive.
    More Details Hide Details When she returns, my life soars." The couple had a son Tom, who is now a watch dealer. Miles has stated that she’s been drinking her own urine for over 30 years, as she feels it positively affects her health in a variety of ways. Converted to Zoroastrianism in 2015 Sarah Miles has written the following books:
    Filming White Mischief on location in Kenya in 1987, Miles worked for the second and last time with Trevor Howard, who had a supporting role but was by then seriously ill from alcoholism.
    More Details Hide Details The company wanted to fire him, but Miles was determined that Howard's distinguished film career would not end that way. In an interview with Terence Pettigrew for his biography of Howard, she describes how she gave an ultimatum to the executives, threatening to quit the production if they got rid of him. The gamble worked. Howard was kept on. It was to be his last major film. He died the following January. She most recently appeared in Well at the Trafalgar Studios and the Apollo Theatre opposite Natalie Casey.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1973

    On 11 February 1973, while filming The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing, David Whiting, briefly one of her lovers, was found dead in her motel room.
    More Details Hide Details She was acquitted of culpability in his death. Miles later commented: "It went on for six months. Murder? Suicide? Murder! Suicide! Murder! Suicide! And, gradually, the truth came out, which I'm not going to speak about, but it certainly wasn't me. I had actually saved the man from three suicide attempts so why would I want to murder him? I really can't imagine." Her performance as Anne Osborne in The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea (1976) was nominated for a Golden Globe. Interviewer Lynn Barber wrote of Miles' appearances in Hope and Glory, White Mischief and her two earliest films that she "has that Vanessa Redgrave quality of seeming to have one skin fewer than normal people, so that the emotion comes over unmuffled and bare."

  • 1969
    Age 27
    In Terence Pettigrew's biography of Trevor Howard, Miles describes the filming of Ryan's Daughter in Ireland in 1969.

I would sit there getting mad, waiting for either the rain to stop or someone to arrive. Film-acting is so horrifically belittling."
