“Yesterday, I left my wallet at home,” says Chancelor Bennett, aka Chance the Rapper. It’s 9 p.m. on a fall evening at a Chicago recording studio, and he and his bandmates are packing up for the night. Four days from now, they will put on their biggest show of the year, at the city’s United Center. advertisement advertisement Bennett sits next to me in high-waisted track pants and a fitted tee. He admits to feeling a little overwhelmed by having a new baby at home and a new tour to prepare for, and yesterday was proof. He had taken his 4-year-old daughter, Kensli, to Dunkin’ for a rare treat before school.

Abraham C Mathews Last year, when a Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court ruled in favour of permitting entry of menstruating women into the Ayyappa temple at Sabarimala, there was a deep sense of unease with the judgment: Not just among the devout across religions, who now feared that the court was going to judge their religious practices, but also many Constitution watchers, who felt that the court should have stayed out of this one.Religion, after all, is an endeavour that can be rationalised only in the minds of the devout of that religion. Can you then hold religious practices to constitutional standards, which inherently presumes rationality?Close The widespread protests against the judgment, probably orchestrated, left people with a bad aftertaste. In addition, citizens began filing petitions seeking entry of women into places of worship for other religions. Therefore, there was more than usual expectation that the review petition filed against the judgment would be allowed … [Read more...] about Legal Matters | SC’s Sabarimala review makes a bad judgment worse

Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya is standing in his company’s industrial-chic test kitchen in lower Manhattan, gleefully doing shots. He’s not drinking alcohol, but something that is, at least for him, another kind of controlled substance: milk. advertisement advertisement Yes, the Greek yogurt titan—the man who once milked cows for a living and famously bootstrapped what became a $1.5-billion-in-annual-revenue company by getting America hooked on the creamy, tart, and protein-rich yogurt of his Turkish youth—is sensitive to dairy. Around the time his trademark mop of curly hair began turning salt-and-pepper, Ulukaya realized that he was lactose intolerant and stopped drinking milk. (Yogurt, because of the fermentation process, is easier to digest.) Then, about a year ago, he began stealthily developing his own plant-based alternative. “Awesome, no?” he says, grabbing an unmarked cardboard carton and pouring himself another small glass of … [Read more...] about Exclusive: Chobani’s empire was built on Greek yogurt.
