Sean Harrigan has made some powerful enemies. As president of Calpers, the largest public pension fund in the United States, he has become a thorn in the side of corporate America, taking on some of its best-known and biggest egos.

Earlier this year the fund locked horns with Michael Eisner, the beleaguered boss of Walt Disney, leading the call for his resignation. Calpers also played a pivotal role in the ousting of former New York Stock Exchange chief Dick Grasso as he became embroiled in a bitter dispute over his eye-popping salary. read more

As Morgan Spurlock challenges a fast food nation, Arwa Haider discovers why he and others are using cinema to make a difference

There’s a revolution happening in our cinemas. No longer are local multiplexes screening only action fantasies and rom-coms, they’re also showing a new breed of documentary film whose aim is to provoke thought, to challenge the way we live, and ultimately to change it.

Michael Moore deserves some credit for getting the ball rolling with Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11, which proved that films with a message can make money as well as a political point. But there’s more than Moore out there; this summer, it has been impossible to ignore the buzz surrounding Super Size Me, Morgan Spurlock’s startling, humorous fast food documentary, which goes on general release here on Friday. read more
