Riso bianco o riso integrale? Proprietà e benefici: come approfittarne al meglio

Riso bianco o riso integrale? Proprietà e benefici: come approfittarne al meglio

Il riso è un cereale antichissimo sempre più utilizzato negli ultimi anni in alternativa alla pasta, in parte per la diffusione delle diverse cucine orientali, di cui rappresenta la base, ed in parte per il timore che il glutine contenuto nel grano sia causa scatenante dei più disparati sintomi (rapporto causa-effetto non sempre reale). All’interno di una dieta equilibrata, per rendere i piatti a base di riso ancora più nutrienti si consiglia di scegliere il riso integrale al posto di quello bianco. Quali sono le differenze tra questi due tipi di riso? Ne parliamo con la dottoressa Manuela Pastore, dietista dell’ospedale Humanitas di Milano

Jessica Glenza reports from Paterson, NJ, and Lois Beckett from New York:

Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in a New York City truck attack that left eight people dead and a dozen wounded, was a legal permanent resident of the United States who was “radicalized domestically” and carried out the attack “in the name of Isis”, officials said on Wednesday.

'A phenomenon within the ANC': murders turn spotlight on South Africa's ruling party

Killing of ANC rising star Sindiso Magaqa symptomatic of wider problem as political corruption scandals take their toll

It is a chilly late winter afternoon on the hilly uplands of South Africa’s south-eastern province of KwaZulu-Natal. At a crowded taxi stand near the village of Ibisi four men wait in a BMW, its engine idling.

Sindiso Magaqa, a 35-year-old rising star in the African National Congress (ANC), the party that rules the district, the province and the country, is driving back to his wife and three children. He is on home turf but is wary nonetheless. When he pulls his Mercedes 4x4 in among the taxis to drop off a colleague, his armed bodyguard gets out to stretch his legs.

Staff at Nippybus said they were out of pocket and desperately searching for new jobs to pay their bills, while hundreds of passengers, from children to pensioners, were left trying to find a way to get to school, work and the shops and to keep medical appointments.

Protesters have crashed a tongue-in-cheek “street party” organised by the artist Banksy outside his Walled Off hotel in the West Bank city of Bethlehem to mark the 100th anniversary of the Balfour declaration, which promised a national Jewish homeland in Palestine.

People from the nearby Aida refugee camp said afterwards they objected to the way the event had used Palestinian children as the centrepiece of the performance. “We came because we didn’t like the use of the British flags or the way they were using Palestinian children,” said Munther Amira, a prominent activist from Aida who planted a large Palestinian flag in the middle of a cake.

By the skin of his teeth: a bull rider learns to walk again without insurance

An injury left professional bull rider Joseph Dewey paralyzed – now, like countless other Americans, he’s recovering without health insurance

In the weeks after professional bull rider Joseph Dewey suffered an injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down, an outpouring of support kept him buoyed above the undertow of hopelessness and despair.

A friend set up a GoFundMe page to help pay his mortgage and care for his family, while another threw a benefit to provide money for costly leg braces. Prayer and encouragement flowed fast in those days and steeled his spirit, so much that when doctors informed him he’d never walk again, Dewey – a stubborn cowboy and a Christian – replied “You don’t know the God that I know,” and pointed them to the door.

The Silence of the Lambs review – psycho-killer Hannibal still chills

Jonathan Demme’s thrilling masterpiece holds up terrifically well after 26 years, as Anthony Hopkins plays perilous mind games with Jodie Foster

It’s a film with the most sensational “entrance” scene in modern film history – and the person doing the entering is entirely still. This is also the least cute meet-cute. FBI rookie Clarice Starling is sent to interview notorious incarcerated serial killer Dr Hannibal Lecter in his glass cell, to see if he can be intrigued, or persuaded, or teased, into helping the agency track down another psychotic murderer, nicknamed Buffalo Bill, who is still at large.

We come upon Lecter, along with Clarice, as he stands ramrod straight with his impassive black stare and thin smile, as still as a reptile in his tight-fitting prison fatigues. It’s a measure of the film’s horribly potent entertainment value that we take this preposterous situation seriously as a toughly realist, almost procedural thriller, and genuflect to Lecter’s fantastically preposterous intellectual attainments, making Woolworth’s-style pencil sketches of Clarice, cuddling a lamb.

Real Madrid seek respite from La Liga woes on Wembley debut against Spurs
Zinedine Zidane’s side arrive in London after their worst start in the league since the José Mourinho era but the Champions League has often been their escape

On the plane back from defeat in Girona on Sunday evening Zinedine Zidane went over the game again while in the rows behind him his players quietly watched films or TV series, keen to clear their minds of what had just happened. “It wasn’t a nice feeling,” Sergio Ramos admitted, and it didn’t make for good viewing either. “I’m not worried,” the Real Madrid manager had said as he sat in front of the media after the match; now, as he sat in front of his captain flying west, and with no need to transmit a public message of tranquillity, he might have felt differently.

Madrid’s 2-1 defeat by Girona leaves them trailing La Liga’s leaders Barcelona by eight points as they head to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League. “The league’s long,” Zidane said and on Monday night Ramos insisted he had overcome eight points before. Actually, he hasn’t: Madrid have never won the title from so far behind and it was not just that they had been defeated; it was that, as the Girona coach, Pablo Machín, insisted, it had been “fully deserved”.

Tiger Woods may not win again but his latest comeback can still inspire | Ewan Murray
Woods has endured another troubled year culminating in pleading guilty to reckless driving but he is remodelling himself as a mentor as well as a competitor as he plots his latest return

Whatever else Tiger Woods may have developed during his latest lengthy absence from competitive golf there appears a new willingness to display a sense of humour.

That Woods privately does a sharp line in wit has been insisted upon for years by those who know him, and the 41-year-old has raised smiles by offering thanks to “the committee of one for picking myself to play” in the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas at the end of November. Woods essentially hosts the tournament, managed by one of his companies, and the 14-times major winner’s foundation is a key beneficiary.

England’s Trevor Bayliss turns to plan B after writing off Ben Stokes for Ashes
• England coach says it would ‘an absolute bonus’ if Stokes joins squad
• Players have drawn up written code of conduct for behaviour in Australia

Trevor Bayliss has written off hopes of Ben Stokes’s involvement in the Ashes, leaving the England coach to draw up contingency plans without the all-rounder.

Bayliss believes it would be an “absolute bonus” if Stokes is able to join the England squad but has a backup plan for the series against Australia that would see Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali shunted up the order and a fourth seamer brought in.

Stan Collymore is ready for Russia – but is Russia ready for Stan Collymore?

The former Liverpool and England striker and outspoken pundit starts his new TV show on RT on Friday and it sounds as if everybody is in for an interesting ride

On more than one occasion at the press launch of his new TV show on RT (formerly known as Russia Today), Stan Collymore references the “elephant in the room” and jokes sarcastically about being little more than a ventriloquist’s dummy having words put in his mouth by a sinister puppet-master with an arm up his back. His sensitivity is understandable.

News that the footballer-turned-broadcaster had signed up with the Kremlin-funded news channel was greeted with scepticism in British sports media circles. In one of Collymore’s frequent social media spats, coincidentally a debate about whether or not the Syrian national football team is a government propaganda tool, one senior sportswriter insinuated that, as somebody working for “an arm of the Kremlin”, Collymore was in no position to lecture anyone on the subject of journalism.

How Chelsea fell from champions to a rabble at Roma in less than six months
Recruitment, injuries and the sale of Nemanja Matic are among the reasons why Antonio Conte’s side have fallen away so spectacularly. At board level there is some sympathy for the manager but patience is finite

A few of the locals called out to Antonio Conte as he trudged up the ramp towards the Chelsea team bus post-match, head bowed to avoid eye contact and hands sunk deep in his pockets, but most had sensed it was no time to bid a fond farewell. The Italian had that thunderous look about him, the kind that sets in when his team have been beaten. Except this had been a humiliation, and an occasion which had left him publicly questioning the most basic qualities expected of his players: hunger, desire and commitment to compete.

The second-half surrender at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday betrayed a team who had lost hope, their conviction eroded by a mixture of defensive chaos and attacking profligacy which had left them playing catch-up to Roma. The reaction, Conte was quick to point out, was unacceptable. Although some may cling to the belief the emphatic loss can prompt a similar reaction to the infamous thrashing endured at Arsenal less than two months into last season, the particular quirks of Chelsea’s campaign feel very different this time round.

Warren Gatland: ‘It felt like I was being drained of blood, drop by drop. I was hating the tour’
Taking the Lions to his homeland should have been his proudest moment but now back with Wales the coach believes the welfare of rugby’s elite players is a more pressing concern

“I’ve been on the sidelines of some big games and even I’m scared watching the collisions,” Warren Gatland says after an hour in his company makes it clear he has moved beyond the hurt of coaching the British & Irish Lions in New Zealand. A far warmer man in person than in his press conferences, Gatland’s concern about the health of rugby’s elite players now overrides his consuming battles as the Lions’ head coach.

“We’ve not seen the impact rugby will have on these young men,” Gatland says when describing the dangers – amid talk that future seasons might be extended. “What’s going to happen in the next 10 or 20 years in terms of them needing new knees, new hips, back and neck injuries? And no one’s sure of the real consequences of concussion. So the length of the season definitely has an impact. But so does the size and power of the players.”

Al-Ahly abandon training as too many fans try to watch session – video

The day a non-league defender marked Aubameyang ... after running a 10k

Gabon were looking for a warm-up match before the 2012 Olympics. Newcastle United were busy and their U21s were away, so up stepped Heaton Stannington

By Tom Nicholson for The Set Pieces, part of the Guardian Sport Network

In July 2012 Geoff Walker, the assistant manager at non-league side Heaton Stannington FC, received a very unexpected text from the club’s manager, Derek Thompson. Nobby Solano’s agent had been in touch to ask Thompson if he could help out some friends of his. The Heaton Stan manager was keen on the idea so he typed out a message to his No2: “Gabon are here for the Olympics. They’ve been looking for a warm-up game.”

Newcastle United were busy, their Under-21 team were away and Heaton Stan were next on the list. With Walker on board, Thompson then phoned captain, centre-back and junior tennis coach Joe Wear. He was resting up at home when he received the call. “It was a bit random, really,” recalls Wear. “It was literally the night before.” Wear was preparing to run the Great North 10k the following morning, so he was reluctant at first. But his manager explained the situation.

Keys, Gray and Allardyce talk football, or are they talking about something else? | Marina Hyde

There are those who talk about sport to avoid the weightier issues of the day, and then there are those who magically manage to combine the two without you even realising it

The nights draw in, November is upon us, and it is time to gather round for another episode in our occasional series What We Talk About When We Talk About Football.

As anyone who has spent any time trying to avoid difficult conversations knows, football (and indeed all sport) is perhaps the greatest proxy subject ever created. It provides such helpful cover for a range of repressed upsets, inchoate resentments and subclinical neuroses that, as life goes on, many find it the subject which they feel safest and most comfortable talking about with, say, their parents. And, in due course, with their grown-up children. It is the circle of life, the Great Avoidance, and anyone who has used it to spare themselves another pointless argument about anything from Brexit to how some domestic issue was handled 30 years ago knows to what extent we are all in its most estimable debt.

The Jimmy Garoppolo trade leaves the New England Patriots horribly exposed

Tom Brady is as brilliant as ever at 40. But the Patriots are one bad tackle away from mounting a Super Bowl challenge without a reliable quarterback

We should know better than to question Bill Belichick’s football genius. It’s almost exactly one year since the New England Patriots head coach traded linebacker Jamie Collins to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It’s a move that still defies conventional thought 12 months on. Collins appeared at the Pro Bowl months earlier after recording five forced fumbles, five sacks and 51 solo tackles in the 2015 regular season. “The best defensive player we’ve got, the most athletic guy on the team,” is how former Patriots team-mate Dont’a Hightower described him.

None of that controversy mattered in February. No one asked whether Belichick had made the right call to trade Collins. Belichick was the coach behind the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history and the Patriots had won another Lombardi Trophy, the team’s fifth under his leadership. Questioning Belichick is not a smart move.

Bring on Game 7: Dodgers take thrilling World Series to decider after win over Astros

One of the most intensely and evenly contested World Series ever will be decided on Wednesday night. The Los Angeles Dodgers forced a decisive seventh game in the 2017 World Series by rallying for a 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night in front of a packed house at Dodger Stadium.

“I’ve never been part of a Game 7,” said the Los Angeles manager, Dave Roberts, who played with the Boston Red Sox when they swept the St Louis Cardinals in four games during the 2004 World Series. “When you’re a young kid, you’re trying to play through all the heroes and heroics about a Game 7 in the World Series, and here we are.”

José Mourinho still has issues with Manchester United fans which don’t exist | Paul Wilson

The Manchester United manager continued his needless bickering with a section of the home support in his programme notes but his reasons remain unclear

Enjoy the game is a phrase every football fan reads every week if they buy a match programme and bother with the manager’s notes. It is a standard greeting, an anodyne pleasantry, so of course José Mourinho, who did not get where he is today by being standard or anodyne, chose to subvert it.

“I hope you enjoy the game more than some of you did against Tottenham,” was how the Manchester United manager addressed his public, continuing the needless bickering with the club’s supporters he began after the narrow league victory on Saturday.

Wolves’ Nuno Espírito Santo considering Everton offer to take over as manager
• Nuno inclined to stay at Wolves, who are top of the Championship
• Everton intend to appoint next manager during international break

Nuno Espírito Santo is considering an offer to take over at Everton, following the sacking of Ronald Koeman, but is inclined to stay at Wolves.

Nuno was approached by Everton and had an attractive proposal put before him. Conversations have been held in the last day and a final decision is expected swiftly but he is reluctant to leave Wolves, whom he believes he can lead to promotion from the Championship and where he is popular with supporters.

Nemanja Matic: I have nothing to prove on Chelsea return with Manchester United
• Matic says he does not care what reception he gets from Chelsea fans
• Midfielder to face club for first time since summer transfer to United

Nemanja Matic believes he has nothing to prove when Manchester United travel to his former club Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

The midfielder left Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford for around £40m in the summer to again play under José Mourinho, who signed him for Chelsea in 2014. He also had an earlier, fringe spell at Chelsea.

Antonio Conte lambasts Chelsea’s ‘really, really bad’ display at Roma

• Roma had more hunger, more desire, more fight says Chelsea manager
• Conte says team were complacent in Champions League mauling

Antonio Conte has questioned his side’s hunger, desire and will to fight and suggested some players at Chelsea have been guilty of complacency as his team were embarrassed by Roma to surrender leadership of their Champions League group.

The visitors were behind after 38 seconds at the Stadio Olimpico and, despite creating chances before the break, wilted horribly in a disjointed and chaotic second-half display that left the head coach livid. The emphatic 3-0 defeat puts Chelsea second in the group, albeit they were spared further damage by Atlético Madrid’s failure to beat Qarabag’s 10 men in Spain, and with concern mounting over Sunday’s visit of Manchester United to Stamford Bridge.

Houston Texans star dresses in prison jumpsuit after owner's inmate comments
  • Jadeveon Clowney wore jail outfit to Halloween party on Monday
  • Team spokesperson denies costume was a shot at Bob McNair

On Sunday, the Houston Texans made it clear what they thought of the team’s owner apparently describing NFL players as “inmates” when the majority of the roster knelt for the national anthem. The Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney followed that up by dressing in a prison jumpsuit at a Halloween party on Monday night.

The Texans, however, have denied it was a jab at owner Bob McNair. “[There] was no hidden meaning behind his Halloween costume,” the Texans’ senior director of communications, Amy Palcic, told the Houston Chronicle. “He was not taking a shot at anyone. It was just that – a costume at a Halloween party.”

Wayde van Niekerk suffers serious knee injury in celebrity touch rugby game
• Olympic 400m champion forced to miss 2018 Commonwealth Games
• ‘I will work as hard as I can to get back on the track as soon as possible’

The 400m world record holder, Wayde van Niekerk, has been forced to pull out of next year’s Commonwealth Games in Australia after seriously injuring his knee during a celebrity touch rugby match.

The 25-year-old South African, who is the reigning Olympic and world 400m champion, had been a strong favourite to win the 100m and 200m double in Gold Coast in April. However, he will now face six months of rehabilitation in the US, Qatar and South Africa after sustaining medial and lateral tears of the meniscus and tearing his anterior cruciate ligament playing rugby in Cape Town.

Pyeongchang 2018 can be our best ever Winter Olympics, say Team GB
• Britain identifies ‘10 or 12 realistic medal chances’ at Games
• ‘It is the strongest team we have ever had for a Winter Olympics’

Team GB officials say they are “bullish” that next year’s Winter Olympics will be the most successful in their history – and have identified 10 to 12 realistic medal prospects.

With only 101 days to go before the Games get under way, the British Olympic Association has confirmed it expects to name a 60-strong squad for Pyeongchang and believes it will surpass the four medals the team won in Sochi in 2014. Bill Sweeney, the chief executive of the BOA, said: “We are very bullish. We look at the lineup and it is the strongest team we have ever had for a Winter Olympics.”

Donald Trump’s reaction to terror? To make America terrified again | Simon Jenkins
The president promises further immigration controls, but there was no hint of ‘extreme vetting’ for gun-owners in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre

Drive a truck down a New York street and knock people down, and you’re “a sick and deranged person”. But what if you drive a truck down a New York street, knock people down and shout, “Allahu Akbar”? You are a Muslim terrorist, a global news story and a threat to the security of nations. You drive a president to “extreme vetting” procedures and bring down a plague on all Muslims who dare to visit the United States.

The Balfour declaration isn’t history, it’s an everyday reality for Palestinians | Yasmeen el Khoudary
In Palestine, Arabs are still silenced and sidelined by a declaration that is being commemorated as if it were a relic of empire

A few weeks ago, I was returning to London from a trip abroad. Exhausted, hungry, and annoyed by the long queue ahead at border control, it took me a bit of time to absorb my surroundings, and to realise that the only language I could hear was Hebrew. I happened to be standing in the middle of a group of Israelis whose flight from Tel Aviv had just landed in London.

I stood in the queue, not knowing how or what to feel. Because, as a Palestinian, I haven’t been able to go back to my country since I left it a few years ago, not even for a visit, owing to the continuing Israeli siege on Gaza. Yet all the Israelis who were around me enjoy the kind of travel freedoms and rights that Palestinians are denied by Israel.

We must end the terror double standards | Moustafa Bayoumi

The White House is pushing a position of collective guilt that is completely unlike its reaction from just weeks ago after the Las Vegas shooting

The horrible terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday has so far left us with little useful information regarding the rampage and its perpetrator. But that hasn’t stopped either the media or our politicians from indulging in rank speculation and collective guilt mongering.

Here’s what we know so far. We know that eight innocent people – including five from Argentina and one from Belgium – were tragically killed. We know that Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in the attack, is a 29-year-old man who came to the United States from Uzbekistan in 2010, before Isis existed. We know that the attacker mowed down his victims using a rented van. And we know that after leaving the vehicle the suspect is reported to have yelled the words “Allahu Akbar” before being shot by a police officer.

The Para-athletics rules work against me, but I’m in favour of them. Here’s why | Hannah Dines
The classification system for Paralympic athletes is always being refined, and is as scientific as it can be. It’s not fair to cast aspersions on individuals

All Hallows Eve is a fitting day to find skeletons in the Paralympic classification cupboard. The government found no skeletons at a hearing that took place yesterday – but the meeting will haunt specific athletes for years to come.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has already investigated all the allegations of Para-athletes cheating the classification system brought forward by athlete-parent-lawyer Michael Breen (father of the Paralympic athlete Olivia Breen). They found that all classifications were rightly and fairly made. They vanquished Breen’s argument.

We’re suckers for conspiracy theories – and it’s a sign of a deep social malaise | Hugo Drochon
It’s easy to be flippant about JFK and the moon landings. But the fake news and assumed truths that pervade our politics tell of something more worrying

Last Thursday Donald Trump authorised the release of almost 3,000 previously unseen documents relating to JFK’s assassination in 1963. What did we learn? In truth, not much.

But this was America’s greatest conspiracy theorist sharing a moment with the event that has given rise to America’s greatest conspiracy theories. Trump, remember, launched his political career with the so-called “birther” movement, which alleged that Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii but in Kenya, and therefore was not eligible for office (and was also secretly a Muslim).

Plan to shut free-to-use cash machines could lead to ‘ATM deserts’ in UK

One in five of the 55,000 free-to-use cash machines in the UK could be at risk of closure after proposals were announced to change the way the ATM network operates.

Concerns arose after Link, which runs the network, announced a month-long consultation on cutting the fees that the 38 members of the network pay each other when customers take out cash.

Fracking protest injunction based on 'flimsy evidence'

Petrochemicals giant Ineos is seeking to enforce a sweeping injunction to prevent any protester from obstructing its fracking operations. Campaigners face being jailed, fined or having their assets seized if they break the injunction.

Avenues of trees, live theatre and a spa – why Singapore’s airport is the best on the planet

Changi airport is regularly named top of its class. Now it has opened Terminal 4, replete with futuristic cleaning robots and offering minimal human interaction

Singapore has unveiled a five-storey airport terminal that is the size of 27 football fields and cost £544m to build. The title of world’s best airport (as judged by the Skytrax World Airport awards) wasn’t quite enough for Changi, so it added the new building with the aim of accommodating its ever-increasing footfall, which now stands at 82 million people a year.

Terminal 4, which opened on 31 October, offers the main thing I want after a long-haul flight: a “contactless experience”, whereby passengers don’t have to so much as meet eyes with another human being. In the new building, security checks are automated, thanks to face scanning; futuristic cleaning robots keep things tidy; and mechanised systems transport your luggage, putting the need for staff at an unprecedented minimum.

Amsterdammers v tourists: 'It's worst when they throw up in your plant box'

A decade ago Amsterdam pumped money into tourism to recover from the global financial crisis but – even as the city bans ‘beer bikes’ – can it be saved from a monster industry of its own making?

Last weekend, Els Iping caught a group of male tourists ripping out the shrub in front of her house in the centre of Amsterdam. They were wearing pink dresses and they were very drunk. “These kind of things happen all the time,” she says matter-of-factly. “It’s worse when they throw up in your plant boxes, because you can’t rinse it away– you have to scoop it out.”

Over the last 10 years, Iping – a 64-year-old, stylishly dressed consultant – has witnessed her picturesque neighbourhood change due to an unparalleled growth in the number of visitors. “Every day throngs of tourists pass by my window. The weekend now starts on Thursday afternoon; the screaming and shouting of tourists boozing it up is deafening. And the rubbish they leave behind!”

Full stream ahead: how Amazon's TV shows need to up their game

While Transparent and The Man in the High Castle showed promise, the company is struggling keep up with their rivals – is that about to change?

In the vast deluge of sexual assault revelations that have poured out of Hollywood over the past month, the primary damage has of course been emotional. But so much of the harm has taken place in a professional capacity, abuse pre-empting the potential for great work from female actors, writers and directors. Case in point: Amazon Studios head Roy Price was ousted after new allegations against him surfaced in October, leading to the aggravating exposure of some markedly chauvinistic business practices. Namely, that he passed on HBO’s megahit Big Little Lies due to a perceived dearth of nudity, turned down fellow Emmy dominator The Handmaid’s Tale, and cancelled proudly feminist period piece Good Girls Revolt for reportedly personal reasons as well.

Talking to my sister about racism: 'People your age seem so much more aware'

When I went to Cambridge six years ago, I overlooked institutional racism. My sister, a current student at Southampton, takes a very different view. We sat down to talk about our different experiences of prejudice at university

When my younger sister Fizzy tells me about her experiences of racism as a student, they’re both familiar and strange. It’s been six years since I graduated from the University of Cambridge, where I tended to explain racism away. It just seemed a part of life at the archaic institution – which was recently criticised for its lack of diversity by MP David Lammy.

My sister, who studies at Southampton, a newer university, has also experienced racism. She has encountered people who have openly used racist language, and is often asked to speak for Muslims or people of colour.

'The threats continue?’: murder of retired couple chills fellow activists in Turkey

The killing of two activists who successfully campaigned to shut down a mine has shocked environmentalists in Turkey who fear their deaths will embolden others to kill to protect their profits

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

Cedar branches whisper in the Anatolian breeze. Twigs crunch underfoot. A truck rumbles from a distant marble quarry. The crack of a hunter’s rifle echoes through the forest.

The sounds of tranquility and violence intermingle at the remote hillside home of Aysin and Ali Büyüknohutçu, the Turkish beekeepers and environmental defenders whose murder in Finike earlier this year has sent a chill through the country’s conservation movement.

2017 on course to be deadliest on record for land defenders

Deaths of environmental activists locked in conflict with mining, logging and agricultural companies across three continents has passed 150

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

The number of people killed this year while defending their community’s land, natural resources or wildlife has passed 150 – meaning 2017 is on course to be the deadliest year on record.

Environmental activists, wildlife rangers and indigenous leaders are locked in fierce conflicts with mining, logging and agricultural companies in hundreds of places around the world. The Guardian is working with watchdog Global Witness to record all the deaths in 2017, and this week that figure reached 153 with a spate of killings across three continents.

Battle for the mother land: indigenous people of Colombia fighting for their lands

In pictures: Colombia’s land battles shatter the peace in Cauca Valley

A green-and-red flag flies over a cluster of bamboo and tarpaulin tents on the frontline of an increasingly deadly struggle for land and the environment in Colombia’s Cauca Valley.

It is the banner for what indigenous activists are calling the “liberation of Mother Earth”, a movement to reclaim ancestral land from sugar plantations, farms and tourist resorts that has gained momentum in the vacuum left by last year’s peace accord between the government and the leftwing guerrillas who once dominated the region – ending, in turn, the world’s longest-running civil war.

Activists have marched through Whitehall to urge the UK government to give more support to environmental defenders who risk their lives protecting rainforests, rivers and the climate.

'Our desire for goods is at the heart of this': Why Bruce Parry wants us all to live more sustainably

In his new documentary, the explorer joins Borneo’s Penan tribe to see what the world’s indigenous people can teach us about our own survival and that of the planet

Bruce Parry has made a career out of going native. The Royal Marine-turned-celebrity explorer may not yet be as fully-fledged an institution as David Attenborough, but if the British public were to nominate anyone to paddle up a crocodile-infested creek, tuck into a wriggling dinner or liberate their mind with shamanistic drugs, Parry would surely rank near the top.

So it is worthy of note that this affable and – until now – mainstream film-maker has been forced to part ways with the BBC for his latest project, a documentary that stresses environmental defence begins on the home front.

Mad fer it: Shaun Ryder has found his true calling – as a bargain-bin movie gangster

The former Happy Mondays man delivers a virtuoso performance as Mad Dog in Rise of the Footsoldier 3. Could Hollywood soon come knocking?

Of all the left-field career lunges that Shaun Ryder has made over the years – Daily Sport columnist, ghost hunter, reality star, noted UFO authority – acting seems like the most straightforward. So you’ll be pleased to hear that, based on the scant evidence we’ve been provided with, the man is an absolute natural.

Now, the bad news: most of this evidence comes in the form of an extended cameo in a film released this week. The even worse news? That film is Rise of the Footsoldier 3: The Pat Tate Story, an unnecessary sequel to an obscure bargain-bin gangster film from a decade ago that has the look, feel and budget of a TOWIE Scarface cosplay weekender. Rise of the Footsoldier 3: The Pat Tate Story is the sort of film that even Danny Dyer would have turned down during his drain-circling run as Britain’s foremost low-rent on-screen wideboy. Its only aspiration is to be The Business, and it misses by a country mile. It has the air of an elaborate tax write-off scheme. Viewed from any conceivable angle, Rise of the Footsoldier 3: The Pat Tate Story is an objectively terrible film. It’s the sort of thing that will actively reduce the IQ of anyone who watches it. My younger brother Pete would probably love it.

Derek Robinson obituary
Trade union leader nicknamed ‘Red Robbo’ who came to prominence in the 1970s as the convener of British Leyland’s Longbridge plant near Birmingham

For a brief period at the height of the industrial conflicts of the 1970s between the trade unions and both Labour and Conservative governments, few union leaders were better known than Derek Robinson, who has died aged 90. As the convener of one of the largest manufacturing complexes in the country, the British Leyland motor company’s Longbridge plant on the edge of Birmingham, and an unabashed member of the Communist party, he was known as Red Robbo. This catchy nickname, a headline writer’s dream, allowed him to be portrayed as a symbol of the conflicts that were bringing the industry to its knees. Management blamed him for the 523 disputes at the plant in 1978-79.

His contested dismissal by the new broom at BL, Sir Michael Edwardes, in 1979 brought workers briefly out on strike. It marked a declaration of intent, a change from the postwar pattern of monolithic union organisations in large plants, mirroring an introspective management, to more assertive international management. A few years later Robinson’s own union was discussing no-strike deals to encourage Japanese companies to establish themselves in the UK.

Camille: the French pop animal unafraid to get physical

The one-woman choir howls like a wolf and gallops like a horse as she mixes multitracked mantras with a riot of jabbering percussion. She reveals how drums ‘tell us what it is to be a society’

A Camille concert is an extraordinary experience. Over two hours, the maverick singer writhes barefoot on the floor, dances like a galloping horse, howls like a wolf, sings audacious harmonies with a trio of backing vocalists and hits the kind of high notes that might only be audible to dogs. She sings in English about adultery and ecology; she sings in French about the futility of planting a Twix or a Mars bar in the soil, or how pregnancy turns a man’s semen into milk. She starts her set with a mournful, melismatic reading of Joni Mitchell’s Blue and reaches a truly bestial climax with a gospel punk version of the Dead Kennedys’ Too Drunk to Fuck.

In an Anglo-American pop world that has traditionally treated French pop with a mixture of contempt and ridicule, Camille Dalmais might have been invented specifically to puncture this anglophone arrogance. In the 15 years since her debut album, Le Sac des Filles, audiences around the world have been enthralled by her vocal experiments – multitracked choral works that transform glottal stops, breathless yelps and plosive syllables into beatboxing patterns – and her closing song tonight, the a cappella Tout Dit, is a reminder of this. Now her fifth studio album, Ouï (a pun on the French words for “yes” and “hearing”), adds a riotous drum section to this one-woman choir.

Satellite eye on Earth: September 2017 - in pictures

The wrecking ball swings at Moscow – a photo essay

A mass demolition of Russia’s iconic Khrushchevka apartments will leave 2 million people with no choice about their next home. So why did so many approve it?

Moscow is enduring one of its periodic urban convulsions: plumes of dust fill the air, cranes proliferate across the skyline and the streets are soundtracked by pneumatic drills. In the city centre, new parks, infrastructure and freshly decorated historical monuments are the most visible signs of renewal. But there is another, less visible reconstruction programme going on – and one that is startling in its scale.

In June this year, the Moscow Duma unanimously approved the demolition of more than 4,000 apartment blocks in various sites across the sprawling city, home to nearly 2 million people. Most of this housing is privately owned, the consequence of the privatisation of state housing after the collapse of the Soviet Union. It has been a highly controversial decision, bringing thousands of Muscovites into the streets in protest.
