There something quite intriguing when watching someone's talent grow--even recognising it early on. Jodie Comer's star has been rising for a while, shooting her into the spotlight as Villanelle in the incredible series Killing Eve. But in the recently released Help we see Comer command the small screen, showing what this Liverpudlian actress is capable of. And now with her second major film, The Last Duel, Hollywood is seeing it too.
Dave Grohl, lead singer of the Foo Fighters, recently released his memoir, an anthology of memories from moments that have led him to where he is today. A few years ago, his mother released a book of her own--a collection of stories from other mothers of musicians on their experiences of raising people who would grow up to become some of the biggest stars in the world.
She was orphaned 14 years ago when her mother was killed in a senseless attack. For the next decade and a half, ranger Andre Bauma raised her with love and care. Ndakasi died recently after a brief illness. But in her short time on earth, she taught Bauma and others around her so much about life--about our similarities & how, chimpanzees often show more humanity than humans.

Kim Ng made history last year when she became the first female GM of a men's professional sports team in North America. It's a job she has been acutely prepared for (and effectively doing before she was even appointed). And while she has an uphill battle ahead of her with her team (the Miami Marlins), there's nothing she hasn't dealt with before.
Pernod Ricard North America's chief executive has an interesting relationship with alcohol. Which, Ann Mukherjee says, gives her an advantage when navigating the spirits company out of troubled times and into a space of smart engagement with customers. Now almost two years into this role, we see a leader who is determined to change the conversation around booze.
When Matthew Rhys came across a wooden boat for sale on Ebay, he did something unusual: he bought it. What he would discover was a steep learning curve while restoring a boat that needed a lot of love and attention. Four years later, with the help of the only person who consistently helped him (a female ferry captain), his whim has turned into a love of the open seas.
