‘None is’ or ‘none are’? Singular or plural verb? What’s right?

Viewers like me might’ve cringed last Sunday watching HBO’s “The Undoing” and hearing Nicole Kidman’s character be corrected by her British mother-in-law for saying “none of us are” instead of “none of us is.”

Toward the end of the series’ fifth episode, “Trial by Fury,” I sat up, not because of anything gruesome, like the bludgeoning of Elena Alves (played by Matilda De Angelis) in episode one, but because Janet Fraser (Rosemary Harris) was trying to school Grace Fraser (Kidman) not in forensic science but in grammar. Drama!

Some context is in order: Janet is married to Jonathan Fraser (Hugh Grant), who’s on trial over Elena’s murder. Jonathan says he didn’t kill Elena, though he admits he did have an affair with her and is the father of her second child.

In the scene in question, Grace, who lives in New York, is Skyping with Janet, who’s in the UK,

Mickelson and Barkley cruise to victory in The Match

(Reuters) – Phil Mickelson and Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley cruised to victory over three-times NBA champion Stephen Curry and retired Super Bowl-winning quarterback Peyton Manning in the third iteration of “The Match” on Friday in Arizona.

Five-times major champion Mickelson and Barkley won the modified alternate shot match play exhibition 4&3 at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley where each golfer sported a microphone to capture a steady stream of banter.

After taking a 4-up lead through seven holes, Barkley sent a mid-match dagger when he spoke directly to the camera and said to get re-runs of television crime drama “Law & Order” ready in “about five more holes.”

Team Mickelson-Barkley lost the next hole and then the 11-times NBA All-Star shanked his tee shot at the ninth but the duo were 3-up at the turn and remained in control.

Mickelson and Barkley finally closed out the

The Bombay High Court on Friday announced its verdict on Kangana Ranaut‘s office demolition case. It declared that Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) action of demolishing a part of Kangana Ranaut’s bungalow as ‘illegal and smacks of malafide intentions’. A bench of Justices SJ Kathawalla and RI Chagla said that the action was ‘bad in law’ and observed that it was carried out on ‘wrongful grounds’ and ‘against the rights of the citizens’. It further stated that it does not approve of authorities using ‘muscle power’ against any citizen and said that the case was fit for awarding compensation to the actor for the damages caused.

Now, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut reacted to the verdict and told news agency ANI, “The actress called Mumbai Police mafia & Mumbai PoK. Do parties that are excited over

Former United States Marine Nicole Kelley poses for a portrait outside a Tampa hotel, which she is temporarily calling home.

A Lyft driver whose income had dropped off during the pandemic, she had submitted to the court a copy of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention form in which she swore, under penalty of perjury, that she fit the criteria to be protected from eviction until 2021.

But the hearing lasted five minutes, and she felt like the judge barely acknowledged the form. A few weeks later, her landlord texted to say she had to be out in three days. She sat on the floor of her Brandon rental duplex and cried.

“I feel like I failed my kid,” Kelley, 44, said in a phone interview from the Tampa

Top court to review order to open police disciplinary files

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Supreme Court will decide if state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal can order the release of police disciplinary files dating back 20 years.

The decision came in an order issued Wednesday by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. It comes a few weeks after a state appellate court unanimously ruled that Grewal has the authority to release the files, rejecting arguments made by police and troopers unions seeking to block the releases.

A date for oral arguments before the top court has not been scheduled.

The announcement of Grewal’s plans came in the days after the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police sparked protests and calls for more police accountability.

Grewal’s directives issued in June required law enforcement agencies across the state to begin publicly identifying officers who were fired, demoted or suspended for more than five days because of a disciplinary violation, and required
