Footnotes: How Running Makes Us Human by Vybarr Cregan-Reig – review12h Footnotes: How Running Makes Us Human by Vybarr Cregan-Reig – review

Why running transforms us, reconnecting us with our bodies and the natural worldWhile running barefoot on Peckham Rye in London, Cregan-Reid passed a boy who turned to his mother and asked: “What’s that man running away from?” Although he quipped in reply “old age!”, he realised the question was a good one and the search for an answer inspired this book. Humans evolved to become one of the best running animals on the planet and he notes that “a good runner basically needs a palaeolithic body”. That means overcoming the malign effect of sitting on chairs all day and wearing shoes. He only runs barefoot a third of the time yet Cregan-Reid clearly rates the experience highly: “Bare feet can help us feel what it is like to be in the world.” For while he cites countless examples of how it is

The Australia Council’s latest survey highlights a huge gap between what the public want and what the government will fund The Australia Council’s national arts participation survey is a magnificent exercise. Now in its third iteration, it has proven itself by every measure the most comprehensive study of the cultural tastes and habits of ordinary Australians. With 7,5­37 people surveyed in this year’s report, it gives us excellent sample sizes and robust quantitative data – and the headline findings, which were released this morning, are striking. There is no doubt about it: Australians love the arts and culture.

Aubrey Plaza heads up a cast of skilled comic actors in a sex farce that has amusing moments scattered throughout but risks feeling like an extended SNL skit Rather like 2011’s Your Highness, the initial gimmick proudly, even boastfully, revealed in The Little Hours is based on the notion that medieval characters can be just as puerile as their contemporary counterparts. Within seconds of the titles ending, 14th-century nuns are swearing, shouting, vandalizing and attacking any local man naive enough to look their way. But the test here – and it’s one that Danny McBride’s misjudged comic fantasy failed at – is whether the film can sustain itself beyond mere shock value.
