Not many bands have the benefit of having their origin story recorded on film for posterity by a documentarian. Cases are fewer still where said documentarian puts down the camera (or at least sets it on a tripod) midway through the process so he can actually join the band. This was all the case, though, […]

Leader of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon has been defending her handling of the sexual harassment case involving her predecessor Alex Salmond, which has been threatening to derail her dream to lead Scotland to independence from the United Kingdom.Sturgeon testified on Wednesday (March 3) and described the feud with Salmond as "one of the most invidious political and personal situations" she has ever faced.She denied his accusations that she had plotted against him and misled the Scottish parliament."I have never claimed in this or anything else to be infallible. I have searched my soul on all of this many, many times over. It may very well be that I didn't get everything right, that's for others to judge, but in one of the most invidious political and personal situations I have ever faced, I believe I acted properly and appropriately, and overall, I made the best judgments I could."In his own explosive testimony last week, Salmond accused Sturgeon of taking part in a malicious plot to drive him out of public life, and of breaking the ministerial code.He stood trial on charges of sexual assault and was acquitted last year.The feud between the pair, once close friends and powerful allies in the cause of Scottish independence, could deprive Sturgeon of the emphatic win she needs in May's Scottish elections to overcome resistance by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who opposes a referendum.

Germany's financial watchdog BaFin said on Wednesday that it had imposed a moratorium on Greensill Bank. The ban is for disposals and payments because "there is an imminent risk that the bank will become over-indebted," said BaFin. The bank, based in Bremen, Germany, is part of the British fund Greensill Capital, which is in talks to sell large parts of its business after losing the backing of two asset managers who had underpinned parts of its supply chain financing model.

Dialogue must remain the cornerstone on which Catalonia and national authorities resolve a long dispute over its independence drive, regardless of who becomes its next chief minister, the region's Socialist leader said. Salvador Illa, who opposes Catalan independence, got more votes than any other candidate in a regional election on Feb. 14. Whatever form the next regional administration takes, any repeat of Catalonia's chaotic independence bid of 2017 is unlikely, with concerns about COVID-19 now uppermost in voters' minds.

Geoffrey Scott, the actor best known for his roles on “Dynasty” and “Dark Shadows,” has died at the age of 79. His widow confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Scott died of Parkinson’s disease just after midnight on the day after his birthday, February 23. Scott got his start in acting when he was signed by legendary agent Dick Clayton, who went on to rep icons including Jane Fonda, James Dean and Burt Reynolds. Signing a deal with Universal, Scott became known for his role as Sky Rumson in the ABC soap “Dark Shadows” in 1970, which kicked off a long and prolific career in soap acting. He went on to star in soaps like CBS’ “Where the Heart Is” and “Guiding Light,” along with ABC’s “General Hospital.” In 1982, he joined the cast of “Dynasty” as tennis pro Mark Jennings, the first husband of Linda Evans’ Krystle Carrington. The role would go on to become one of Scott’s most popular characters. Scott also appeared as a U.S. marshal in NBC’s “Cliffhangers: The Secret Empire”, and starred alongside Jerry Reed on “Concrete Cowboys,” a series on CBS in 1981. Scott also found a niche in commercial acting, starring in almost 100 over his career. He was at the center of the “I’d Walk A Mile For A Camel” cigarette campaign, and was later featured as both a Marlboro man and an Old Spice Man. According to his wife, Scott and Tom Selleck were often competing for the same roles. Scott retired after 45 years in Hollywood, and subsequently moved to Colorado with his family to pursue his love for skiing. He had lived in the Boulder area for the past 10 years. In addition to his wife, he is survived by twin sons Christopher and Matthew. Read original story Geoffrey Scott, ‘Dynasty’ and ‘Dark Shadows’ Actor, Dies at 79 At TheWrap

The South Dakota House on Wednesday left the impeachment of the state's attorney general in doubt as lawmakers moved to delay evaluating whether he should be impeached until the conclusion of the criminal case against him for hitting and killing a man with his car. The House State Affairs Committee amended a resolution to impeach Republican Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg, striking the articles of impeachment and replacing them with language that said he could potentially be impeached. The resolution, which will next head to the full House, holds no requirement that lawmakers take up the issue once the criminal case has concluded.
