We were very close, intimate, like in that sense, like, we were great friends. We went through our ups and downs,” Burke said. “We definitely had chemistry… You can’t teach that.

Cheryl Burke Reveals She Had Romances With Three of Her ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Celebrity Partners

When it comes to her Dancing With the Stars romantic history, Cheryl Burke is sambaing right into setting the record straight.  The longtime ballroom dancer, who appeared on 25 seasons of the hit ABC ballroom competition show as one of the professional partners, revealed just how many “showmances” she had with her famous partners while working on the show.  “I’ve had my own showmances, you know.

Modern democracies are in crisis. Could 18th-century political theorist Edmund Burke help us find a way out?

Modern democracies are in crisis. Could 18th-century political theorist Edmund Burke help us find a way out?

Even just 40 years ago, electoral participation on the scale we are witnessing in 2024 would have been unthinkable. More than half of the world’s population live in countries that will hold (or have already held) an election this year. But this great year of elections will unfold against a backdrop of deep unease about the state of democracy. The number of democracies is declining, trust in democracy is weakening, and voter turnout is trending downwards. Appetite for political reform is strong. Citizens have made their discontent known through abstention, protests, votes for anti-establishment candidates and even violence. When thinking about how to address this crisis, we could do worse than looking to the 18th-century statesman and political theorist Edmund Burke (1729-1797) who witnessed a similar crisis of representation not long after entering the British parliament. I n 1768, radical MP John Wilkes was excluded from parliament having been earlier outlawed for libelling King George III in a piece of journalism. Parliament then repeatedly refused to seat him when he won re-election several times, and …

How do we stop terrorism when its repercussions are so devastating? | Jason Burke

For more than 150 years, we have been living with terrorism. Like an inherited illness, it is passed from generation to generation. Waves of violence succeed one another. Early anarchists, fascists, 1960s revolutionaries, hijackers of the 1970s, militant nationalists in the 1980s, Islamist extremist or extreme rightwing hatemongers, all are variations on a dismal theme. Decades of security strategies and debates over definitions have come to no conclusion about the elusive “root causes” of terrorism. Since the 9/11 attacks of 2001 we have seen the most sustained research effort ever made. This has led to much deeper knowledge and innumerable thwarted plots, but not a foolproof answer as to how we can prevent a relatively small number of individuals causing massive disruption, loss of life and instability on a planetary scale with a single act. We still do not know who exactly planned the attacks into Israel launched by Hamas on 7 October, but we are fairly sure that they are not numerous. The demands of security will have meant only a handful of people …
