Sherry (Spanish: Jerez [xeˈɾeθ]) is a fortified wine made from white grapes that are grown near the city of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. Sherry is produced in a variety of styles made primarily from the Palomino grape, ranging from light versions similar to white table wines, such as Manzanilla and fino, to darker and heavier versions that have been allowed to oxidise as they age in barrel, such as Amontillado and oloroso. Sweet dessert wines are also made from Pedro Ximénez or Moscatel grapes, and are sometimes blended with Palomino-based sherries.

A £4bn cut in VAT has come into force, allowing firms in the food, drink and hospitality sectors to slash prices.

Nando's, Pret A Manger and McDonald's are among firms to promise reductions after the chancellor ordered a temporary VAT cut from 20% to 5%.

The Treasury estimates households could save £160 a year on average, but not all firms will pass on the benefit.

Many companies are expected to use the windfall to shore up finances hit by the lockdown rather than cut prices.

The VAT reduction will stay until 12 January next year, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced last week. It was part of a package of measures to help firms recover and get consumers spending.

VAT - Value Added Tax - is paid on everyday goods and services, but the tax is usually included in the price most consumers see.

Facing a tough re-election battle, US President Donald Trump has replaced his campaign manager.

Mr Trump said he had substituted Bill Stepien, a field director for his 2016 campaign, in place of Brad Parscale.

Mr Parscale - who was reportedly blamed by Mr Trump's inner circle for a poorly attended rally in Oklahoma last month - will stay on as senior adviser.

Opinion polls show the president is trailing his Democratic challenger Joe Biden ahead of November's election.

Mr Trump's statement on Facebook on Wednesday evening said: "Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign."

"More Than a Woman" is a song performed by American recording artist Aaliyah. It was written by Static Major and Timbaland, who produced the song for her self-titled 2001 album. While the song incorporates a sample from Syrian singer Mayada El Hennawy's 1993 song "Alouli Ansa", El Hennawy and her songwriters remain uncredited on "More Than a Woman". A pop, electro and hip hop song, it was one of three records Timbaland produced for Aaliyah and features digital strings, harsh-sounding synthetic bass, and guitar sounds. Lyrically, the track expresses a female's promise to be "more than a woman" to her love interest.
