Planes, ships, barges: the DIY evacuation of Vanuatu's volcano island

Eruption threat means all 11,000 people of Ambae in the Pacific need to leave – and with sparse official help, they are getting off any way they can

Vanuatu is no stranger to the rumblings, shakings, flood waters and wrecking winds of natural disaster. The south Pacific island nation was rated the most at-risk country in the world in a 2016 United Nations study. Its 83 islands are stuck right in the middle of hurricane alley and they dot the border of the “ring of fire” – a belt around the Pacific prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Despite their precarious situation being a day-to-day reality, the country has been galvanised by the prime minister Charlot Salwai’s order to evacuate the entire island of Ambae because of the threat that the volcano at its centre will blow.

No pain relief, no running water: the perils of childbirth in Tanzania | Leah McLaren

‘Natural birth’ is the only option for many women here, and though dedicated midwives do their best, the risk of infection – and sepsis – is high

At the Nyarugusu medical dispensary in north-west Tanzania, Eva Paulo, 23, is in her 36th hour of labour. She paces barefoot in circles around the dusty yard behind the delivery room, her narrow back hunched in pain. Apart from her belly she is a slim woman with an angular face, her hair scraped back into rows of tidy plaits. When a contraction grips her, Paulo leans hard into the nearest tree, shuts her eyes and breathes silently as the sweat beads off her forehead.

“This is too much,” she says, as another contraction racks her. “I don’t know why it’s taking so long. And the midwives, they don’t tell me anything.”

Thrilled about your new book. I’m a massive fan. I was wondering which works by Henry James had particularly inspired you as a writer, and whether you were ever a bit daunted (like me) by his late novels? I’m guessing The Spoils of Poynton might be one of your favourites, having read The Line of Beauty!

I find Henry James inspiring altogether. It's something to do with his double mastery. Both his insight into human behaviour and his deep interest in the novel as a form. I've certainly never tried to imitate him, though in The Line Of Beauty I did set myself the Jamesian task of writing a large social novel in the third person and all seen from the point of view of one character; and I found myself seeing parallels between the world I was writing about and the world of James's novels of the later 1890s. I think perhaps the book I find most fascinating from a technical point of view is What Maisie Knew – which is both the cleverest and the tenderest of all James's novels.

DNA in the dock: how flawed techniques send innocent people to prison

Many juries believe crime-scene DNA evidence is watertight – but this is far from the case. As forensic technology gets ever more sophisticated, experts are only just realising how difficult interpreting the evidence can be

For David Butler, it began with a knock on the door early one November morning, seven years ago. When he opened it, officers from the Merseyside police were standing on his doorstep. The retired taxi driver was being arrested for murder.

The police said they had evidence connecting Butler to the death of Anne Marie Foy, a 46-year-old sex worker who had been battered and strangled in Liverpool in 2005.

Forgotten in life and death: inequality for Mexico's invisible underclass after quake

A collapsed factory in a working class area, and the lack of information about who died there, is a poignant reminder that in Mexico City not all deaths are equal

A small crowd pay its respects in front of a huge crater where a misshapen white mannequin, stacks of plastic buckets, and a dozen crushed vehicles are all that is left of the four-storey factory building which collapsed on to a packed car park.

At least 21 people were killed here in Colonia Obrera, one of Mexico City’s historic working-class neighbourhoods, after it was instantly flattened by this month’s powerful earthquake.

Rise of the yimbys: the angry millennials with a radical housing solution

They see themselves as progressive housing activists. Critics call them stooges for luxury developers. Meet the new band of millennials who are priced out of cities and shouting: ‘Yes in my back yard’

When a woman stood up and waved a courgette in the air at a City of Berkeley council meeting this summer, complaining that a new housing development would block the sunlight from her zucchini garden, she probably felt confident that the community was on her side. After all, hers was the kind of complaint – small-scale, wholesome, relatable – that has held up housing projects for years in cities around the world.

She didn’t expect the wrath of the yimbys.

'I can get my soul out of prison': the art made by Guantánamo detainees

Ode to the Sea, an exhibition in New York City, features work by prisoners who say the water – which they could hear but not see – symbolizes quiet and freedom

Giant is a model ship with four masts, ornate rigging, and portholes whose windows open to reveal the cities of Jerusalem, Mecca and Medina. Its creator, Moath al-Alwi, lives within earshot of the ocean, but cannot see the waves, let alone enter the water.

Alwi is a prisoner at the US detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and his ship – made of painted cardboard, plastic bottlecaps, threads from his prayer rug and prayer beads – goes on display in New York this week in an exhibition of art by current and former detainees of the notorious prison.

Pregnant in Ireland: 'I had no control and was made to feel ashamed'

The eighth amendment does not allow women the right to informed consent or refusal of treatment during pregnancy – why is this tolerated?

I had my first antenatal appointment in Ireland three years ago. I was about six weeks pregnant. Like most first time mothers I was consumed by questions: when would I feel movement? When would I have my first scan? What were my birth options? My enthusiasm was met with gentle condescension by my doctor.

They explained that most women wouldn’t even know they were pregnant at this stage and that it certainly wasn’t recommended to tell anyone other than my partner and maybe a few close family members until I was at least 12 weeks into the pregnancy. I changed the subject, struggling to conceal my embarrassment.

iPhone 8 Plus review: still massive – but not in a good way

Apple’s chunky phablet stands out like a sore thumb against its ever-more sleek rivals, and not even its decent camera and battery life can save it

The iPhone 8 Plus might have some fancy camera tricks up its sleeve, but is it really worth buying its bulky frame ahead of its sleeker rivals or the potential of the iPhone X?

Like its smaller non-Plus sibling, the design of the iPhone 8 Plus has barely changed since it was introduced in 2014 with the iPhone 6 Plus, but it has aged worse. The iPhone 6 Plus was thin but relatively wide and tall for a smartphone with a 5.5in screen in 2014, with big bezels and a chunky top and bottom.

Natural health service: wildlife volunteers get mental health boost

Research supports the idea that nature could be widely prescribed by doctors as a therapy, easing the burden on the NHS

Volunteers on wildlife projects benefit from a big boost to their mental health, according to new research. It advances the idea that nature could be widely prescribed by doctors as a therapy, which its supporters say would ease the burden on the NHS.

The new analysis tracked people across England taking part in projects run by the Wildlife Trusts, ranging from nature walks and conservation work to the Men in Sheds project in Bolton, which makes bird tables and bug hotels.

Hitting the right nerve: the electronic neck implant to treat depression

For people with severe depression who don’t respond to standard treatment, vagal nerve stimulation (VNS) offers new hope

Steve Collins is a 45-year-old unemployed architect who has been living with severe depression for 15 years. “I’m like a hermit crab hiding under rocks, crouching in dark spaces and only venturing out occasionally; there’s no light, no hope, no way in or out. I’ve been in therapy for years and must have taken at least six different antidepressant drugs. I had ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) and that literally shocked me out of it for a bit, but the depression came back – and the idea of ECT was so shocking for my family. People say: ‘Well, at least you haven’t got cancer.’ But, honestly, I’d rather have almost anything than live like this.”

A new type of treatment, vagal nerve stimulation (VNS), may offer hope for people like Collins who don’t improve with conventional depression treatment. A small battery-powered device like a pacemaker is inserted under the skin in the neck, from where it emits pulses of weak electical current to stimulate part of the vagus nerve. The vagus normally monitors our vital functions; it collects information about our breathing, heart rate and joint position, and sends signals back to the brain that tell it to respond if there are fluctuations.

One small step: world's first welcome mat for aliens unveiled in Australia

If there is extraterrestrial life out there, why haven’t we found any yet? Perhaps it’s because we never invited them in

The planet’s first cosmic welcome mat – here to welcome extraterrestrial life to the Adelaide Convention Centre and the 68th International Astronautical Conference – seems comically small and slightly askew.

It’s not that the mat itself is small: it’s standard doormat size, perhaps a bit larger. But conference venue entrances are built to compensate for masses of foot traffic, and it’s here that the mat finds itself: between the oversized doors and the oversized floor sticker covered in sponsor branding, welcoming delegates to the conference.

Kwame Kwei-Armah: ‘As a black male you’re told you can’t do this. I’ve tried to go: yes we can’

The new artistic director of the Young Vic in London will break the arts glass ceiling for African-Caribbeans. It’s a role he has performed before in Baltimore, making theatre about police violence and experiencing the ‘rage’ gripping the US

Portrait: Alicia Canter for the Guardian

Kwame Kwei-Armah’s imposing face has just been splashed all over the news. Last week he was appointed artistic director of Young Vic in London, one of Britain’s most prestigious theatres. It’s a great job, make no mistake. But there was something more to it than that. He is the first African-Caribbean director to run a major British theatre.

Earlier this year he handed in his notice in Baltimore, where he is artistic director of the Center Stage theatre. In the US he is out on his own, too. Last year he described the situation as “almost sinful”. Today, if anything, he feels even more strongly about it. “In America, I am the only black male artistic director of a major theatre. And we’re talking about 100 top regional theatres. And in Britain, I will be the only African-Caribbean director of a major. And in Europe, I don’t know of any, which tells me that in the western world there is only one diasporic African artistic director of a major theatre, and that is what I mean by sinful.”

Who is hurt by Trump's new refugee quota? People like Roqayah Mohammed | Deborah Campbell

Roqayah was five when the war came to her village near Baghdad. Overnight, a happy childhood was supplanted by tanks, helicopters, American soldiers, fear

When President Trump announced that he was slashing refugee admissions to the United States to 45,000 – the lowest in decades – the first person I thought about was 18-year-old Roqayah Mohammed.

I met Roqayah in 2007 when Syria wasn’t the war-torn place we know today. It was a haven for more than a million Iraqi refugees, largely the professional class, who had fled the aftermath of the US invasion of Iraq.

My brilliant and troubled friend Lou Reed

In an extract from his new biography, rock writer Anthony DeCurtis reflects on the icon he knew personally and delves into the making of his 1973 solo album Berlin and his encounter with Czech president – and fan – Václav Havel

“People always say to me, ‘Why don’t you get along with critics?’” Lou Reed told me one night in 2012. “I tell them, ‘I get along fine with Anthony DeCurtis.’ Shuts them right up.” We were sitting in the dining room of the Kelly Writers House at the University of Pennsylvania, where I teach creative writing. I’d brought Lou down to do an interview with me in front of 50 or so invited guests and to have dinner with a dozen students, faculty members, musicians, and local media luminaries. As with so many things with Lou, it was touch and go until the very end.

I always felt that one of the reasons Lou and I got along well was that we met socially before we ever met as artist and critic. In June of 1995, I got stuck at the airport in Cleveland, where I had gone to cover the concert celebrating the opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. My flight back to New York was delayed for hours, and I was settling in for the wait when I ran into a record company friend, who introduced me to Lou and Laurie [Anderson, musician and Reed’s partner]. There’s nothing like an interminable flight delay to grease the gears of socialisation.

Mexico earthquakes demonstrate how height and distance dictate damage

Waves that ripple across the ground are especially destructive to tall buildings whereas intense shaking is more likely to destroy low-rise buildings

Two big earthquakes in Mexico last month were a tragic reminder that the country sits atop one of the most seismically active places on Earth. In particular, the magnitude 7.1 Puebla tremor on 19 September demonstrated Mexico’s vulnerability, causing severe damage in Mexico City and taking more than 270 lives.

However, Mexico’s most lethal earthquake remains the 1985 Michoacán earthquake of magnitude 8, which occurred 32 years earlier, to the day, and killed as many as 10,000 people. Strangely, many of the buildings that survived in 1985 succumbed to the tremors from the magnitude 7.1 last month. That’s because the two earthquakes produced different kinds of shaking.

'A white girl had to die for people to pay attention': Heather Heyer's mother on hate in the US

Heyer was killed when a car plowed into counter-protesters after a white supremacist rally in Virginia. Her mother, Susan Bro, reflects on trying to build a global movement in her daughter’s name

Recently, someone sent Susan Bro a T-shirt and a stack of bumper stickers that read “Just be nice”. She gave the shirt to her mother, who had always told her that: be nice. Bro has no interest in being nice, and she has no interest, just now, in forgiveness. Her 32-year-old daughter, Heather Heyer, was killed seven weeks ago when a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Nineteen other people were injured. The man charged with Heather’s murder was a 20-year-old from Ohio who had demonstrated that day alongside a white nationalist group and had, a former teacher recalled, a longstanding fascination with Hitler.

Barcelona in the strange and symbolic eye of a storm over Catalonia | Sid Lowe

Barcelona’s nuanced identification with Catalonia is part of what gives the club an explicitly socio-political dimension. And that meant this was always going to be more than a match … even if in the end it was less than one

At every Camp Nou game for almost six years now, chants for Catalan independence have gone up when the clock reaches 17 minutes and 14 seconds, commemorating the year the city fell to Felipe V, but not this time – not on the day they were perhaps closer to independence than ever before. This time, Europe’s largest stadium was silent. No fans could be heard, only footballers. Occasionally, the referee’s whistle rang out or somebody clapped yet there were no chants, no songs and no one to sing them. At the side of the pitch where Barcelona played Las Palmas, stewards in orange bibs lined up to keep an eye on stands that had no one in them. Ninety-eight thousand seats sat empty; barely a couple of hundred people were there, and many of those wished they weren’t.

It was late Sunday morning when Barcelona’s international defender Gerard Piqué voted in the referendum on independence called by the Catalan government and declared illegal by the Spanish government and the constitutional courts. He, like many others, had insisted he would vote anyway so he had done, shaking hands with staff at the polling station, smiling and setting off for the stadium. But while that scene was repeated in many places it wasn’t the case everywhere and by the time he left the Camp Nou seven hours later, there were tears in his eyes. So much had happened and so much more could still happen, a future uncertain and scary. Barcelona had won 3-0 but Piqué called it the worst day of his career and the worst thing the state had done in 50 years.

Max Verstappen’s Malaysian Grand Prix win testament to his determination | Giles Richards
The driver controlled his pace out front, matched Lewis Hamilton in every department and showed why he is a prodigious talent with a competitive car

It has been a torrid year for Max Verstappen, who, following pre-season hopes that he would be in a championship fight, were swiftly dashed after seven DNFs. Taking the much-deserved win in Malaysia was a testament to how, despite his sometimes obvious frustration, he has kept his mind on the game. He had said at the Hungarian Grand Prix that he was focusing on making the best of every weekend regardless of the setbacks and when he finally had an opportunity to do so he made it count.

Jim Crowley: ‘Racing is a tough game. I saw a friend of mine killed in front of me’
The champion jockey has risen from being a journeyman over jumps to becoming Flat racing’s best but the road has been marked by tragedy

“Racing is a brilliant game but it’s very tough. That’s why it’s important not to get above your station and appreciate what you have,” Jim Crowley says as he reflects on his rise from being a journeyman over jumps to becoming Flat racing’s champion jockey while seeing death and paralysis on the track.

Crowley has reached an even higher level this year. Apart from the increased prestige and excellent horses he now rides as the principal jockey for Sheikh Hamdan al-Maktoum, Crowley won three Grade One races over the summer to record the most significant victories of his long and unusual career. Crowley has confronted disappointment and savoured glory – but he has witnessed racing tragedy. It helps explain why the 39-year-old is so approachable and philosophical in the hard-edged world of Flat racing.

Lure of cash and fame leaves sport caught in concussion’s moral maze | Sean Ingle

Muhammad Ali and Kevin Doyle came to different decisions about their careers but will scientific advances make decisions any simpler in the future?

There’s a story Larry Holmes tells about the night he fought Muhammad Ali for the world title, 37 years ago today, that gives an insight into the epic self-delusion of the greatest heavyweight champion of all.

From the first bell Holmes grasped that Ali wasn’t the same man he had sparred with for years. That he was weak and “slower than Heinz ketchup”. Yet Ali’s “damn pride” meant that he would not quit. It took 10 rounds before Ali’s trainer, Angelo Dundee, pulled him out. Before then Holmes had started praying that he wouldn’t damage his friend permanently.

Atalanta's adaptation neuters Juventus and serves notice to Serie A | Paolo Bandini

Gian Piero Gasperini’s in-game tweaks are one reason his Atalanta side keep recovering from losing positions – and they did it again to draw with Juventus

It should have been all over. Within 25 minutes of Serie A’s Sunday night fixture, Juventus were two goals to the good. What opponent could overcome such a disastrous start against the champs: winners of six consecutive Serie A titles, as well as six consecutive games to begin this season? Who would even dare to fight back against the Old Lady of Turin?

Only the Goddess of Bergamo. Atalanta share their name with Greek mythology’s virgin huntress, and over the past 12 months they have embodied her combative spirit just as well.

The Patriots have nothing to worry about … except their entire defense

New England are experts and coming back from a slow start but this season they’re gifting games to their opponents

By now, the NFL should know that the New England Patriots treat the first month of the season like an extended training camp. Of course the Pats try to win their first four games but the winning sometimes seems secondary to the bigger goal of trying to build a champion at season’s end.

“They are definitely a better second-half team,” former NFL general manager and current NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly told me a few weeks ago. “It seems the players learn the system more then and Bill Belichick learns more about the players and then they get better and better as the games go on.”

Underachieving giants Hamburg and Werder still searching for hope | Andy Brassell

The passion from both sets of fans remains undimmed, but the question is whether the teams will get away with underachieving again this season

Even by the standards of local tussles and their particular intensity, it wasn’t much of a spectacle. Pundit Lothar Matthäus told the Sky audience that Saturday’s 107th top-flight Nordderby between Hamburg and Werder Bremen “didn’t deserve a sold-out stadium” – nearly 55,000 were there – but what did anybody expect? These two grand old clubs have been on the train leaving Worried, headed for Desperate, for a while and after this fractious encounter, neither look like taking a diversion soon.

For HSV, who had a muted celebration of the club’s 130th birthday on Friday, it was tougher to distil a prevailing emotion after this goalless draw, as their coach Markus Gisdol acknowledged. “I’m torn on what to think,” he said, praising the performance of his side who nevertheless completed a goalless September, and have gone 450 minutes without scoring.

British javelin thrower Joanna Blair suspended after failing anti-doping test
• Athlete represented Britain at European championships in June
• UK Athletics states Blair has been charged and will face hearing

The javelin thrower Joanna Blair, who represented Britain in the European Athletics Team Championships in Lille this summer, has been suspended after failing an anti-doping test.

The 31-year-old from Luton earned international honours after a substantial improvement in her late 20s from being a decent club athlete to representing her country. Last year she set a near three-metre personal best of 57.44m at the British Athletics Championships, where she beat the 2008 Olympic bronze medallist Goldie Sayers into second place.

Who will win the entertaining race to finish third in Ligue 1 this season?

Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco will battle for the title, leaving five clubs to fight for the third Champions League place on offer in the division

By Adam White and Eric Devin for Get French Football News

Marseille’s 4-2 win at Nice was a somewhat calamitous affair, riddled with poor defending and punctuated by the midfielder Luiz Gustavo’s sending off. The intensity, only to be expected for one of Ligue 1’s bigger rivalries, was increased by crowd trouble during the match, including fans brawling in the stands and objects being thrown on to the pitch. None of this is anything new in France, particularly in a derby match, but the result, which lifted Marseille into third place, is perhaps more important than the circumstances of the match. Not, as one might have hoped in looking at the league table, as a validation of the Marseille owner Frank McCourt’s “Champions Project” but as a clear indictment of the paucity of – if not quality – consistency in Ligue 1 this season.

Right behind Marseille, with their clutch of high-profile, albeit ageing, names, sit Nantes and Caen, a pair of clubs whose summer windows featured a distinct lack of recognisable names. This is not an affront to either of those sides; Nantes’ defensive organisation under Claudio Ranieri, combined with the class of Ciprian Tatarusanu in goal, have allowed them to be consistently stubborn opponents, allowing only two goals in their last seven matches. Caen have taken that edict even further, a somewhat surprising turn, given how open the manager Patrice Garande’s sides usually are, winning five of six behind the league’s best defence. Both have also been helped by the fixture computer and one would do well to recall Angers’ fine start to the 2015-16 season as proof of the sustainability of these sorts of teams in the division.

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Everton’s defence has gone walkabout, Swansea and Southampton are serving up stodgy fare and Antonio Conte may rue being in a tougher league than Serie A

Chris Hughton, the Brighton & Hove Albion manager, said it all when he highlighted how his team had not been “out of sight” against Arsenal, just as they had not been against Manchester City on the opening weekend of the season. On both occasions, the final scoreline of 0-2 hinted at respectability. Which, in truth, was Brighton’s priority. The gap to the Premier League’s top six clubs yawns like a chasm and Hughton’s approach at the Emirates Stadium – an approach born out of necessity – was characterised by damage limitation. Hughton used a 4-5-1 system and, even after Nacho Monreal’s early opener, Brighton did not come out. Their lack of firepower remains a worry. It was the fourth time in seven league matches that they had drawn a blank. However, their season will not be defined by away games like this. David Hytner

Everton’s Farhad Moshiri: Ronald Koeman has my total support
• Dutchman handed vote of confidence after Sunday’s home defeat by Burnley
• Majority shareholder Moshiri: We have great fans and they deserve better

Everton’s major shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, has said the club’s fans “deserve better” than this season’s miserable return but insisted Ronald Koeman retains his total support.

The Everton manager has attracted fierce criticism this season following a series of ineffective performances and poor results. Sunday’s defeat by Burnley at Goodison Park was the team’s fifth in eight matches in all competitions and left a club that spent almost £140m in the summer languishing two points above the relegation zone.

Rugby union: talking points from the weekend

Matt O’Connor’s Tigers are evolving fast, Bath’s fledglings offer hope for the country and Quins’ Kyle Sinckler is at the mercy of the law book

The Tigers are changing their stripes. A side which for years built its foundation on set-pieces, an all-enveloping back row, controlling half-backs and immovable defence has evolved into one that can thrive on less than 50% possession. The midfield partnership of George Ford and Matt Toomua allows Leicester to react quickly in broken play and, after all the upheaval of the last few seasons, continuity has been a theme this season. Five rounds into the Premiership the director of rugby, Matt O’Connor, has made just one change in his back line, and that was enforced when Manu Tuilagi was injured after the opening weekend. The wings Jonny May and Nick Malouf have scored seven of the 12 league tries between them, profiting from a broader range of passing, and both added to their tally against the champions in a match in which the home side spent two-thirds of the match in their own half and had just 38% of possession. Paul Rees

Football transfer rumours: West Ham's Andy Carroll to Everton for £20m?

Today’s fluff is dusty

Perhaps because he’s a thrill-seeker who gets a buzz out of flirting with the sack, Ronald Koeman will turn to Andy Carroll to transform Everton from a sorry stodgy mess into a high-energy total-footballing pressing machine. Because if one man personifies the words high-energy total-footballing pressing machine more than any other, it’s the 28-year-old hirsute Geordie with Darren Anderton legs. He’ll cost the Goodison club £20m in January if Koeman’s not been replaced by David Unsworth or David Wagner by then. Another Everton employee who may be gone by 2018 is Ademola Lookman. It says here that Tottenham are sniffing around the teenage striker and wouldn’t mind bringing him home to his city of birth as extra cover in case Harry Kane injures himself in the process of scoring his 127th perfect hat-trick.

Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge is limping towards life on the sidelines | Sachin Nakrani
Laboured effort against Newcastle showed the striker, once among Europe’s best finishers, is now only a back-up option for his manager, Jürgen Klopp

Just before Daniel Sturridge was withdrawn from proceedings on a grey north-east afternoon, he could be seen sitting on the turf clutching his left boot and looking in distress.

He soon rose to his feet and headed to the bench as Roberto Firmino came on for him as one of two 74th-minute Liverpool substitutions, the striker’s expression turning to glumness as he did so. For those who follow Sturridge’s career it was a poignant moment and for the most pessimistic, further evidence that a player who once shone so brightly so often is slipping further into the darkness of a career unfulfilled.

Melbourne claim NRL premiership with champions across field | Matt Cleary

It isn’t just the Big Three that have made the new premiers one of the best teams in NRL history – quality runs throughout

Veteran thoroughbred racing journalist Max Presnell once asked a coterie of colleagues and horse people a simple if complex question: what constitutes the definition of a champion? And the best answer came back from an old trainer, Arthur Ward, who said: “A champion horse doesn’t just beat another top-class horse, he donkey-licks them.” Step forward your NRL champions of 2017, Melbourne Storm, who donkey-licked North Queensland Cowboys – and everybody else – right upside the head.

Why we're adding Black Mathematician Month to our calendars

It’s time to start promoting black mathematicians and talking about building a more representative mathematical community

This October marks the 30th Black History Month in the UK. The annual event, first celebrated in the US in 1976, aims to highlight the ongoing struggle for equality and to educate people on the achievements of members of the African diaspora.

Of course there is plenty to celebrate, from both a historical perspective and in modern society. It is easy to reel off a list of black stars from football, athletics, basketball or cricket. The evolution of popular music has been driven by black artists, from Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin to Kanye West and Beyoncé. The success of Lena Waithe at the Emmys and Moonlight at the Oscars shows the abundance of black excellence on screen, and the beginnings of recognition at the most prestigious award ceremonies. There are also increasing examples of mainstream success in areas such as literature and politics where, with a record number of black and minority ethnic MPs elected in the 2017 General Election, the UK parliament is more diverse than ever – although there is still a long way to go.

So, Mark Zuckerberg wants to repent for Facebook's sins? He can start here | Ellen P Goodman

During Yom Kippur, Zuckerberg asked for forgiveness for Facebook’s wrongs. Real repentance requires change – and there is no better time to start than now

Along with his fellow Jews, Mark Zuckerberg introspected over Yom Kippur and asked for forgiveness via Facebook from “those I hurt this year … for the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us together”. He promised to “work to do better”.

Presumably, Zuckerberg was referring to the two types of harm that Facebook has recently acknowledged causing: allowing Russian nationals to purchase Facebook ads to aid Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and allowing ad buys on hateful search terms.

How the left must respond to this age of anger | Lisa Nandy
The only way for us to heal society’s fractures is to renew our commitment to human rights, and reimagine the role of the state

The political earthquakes of recent years can be summed up by the Brexiters’ rallying cry: “Take back control.” Across the world, rising insecurity, a lack of agency over the things that matter in our lives and a growing minority whose concerns and priorities are not heard or acted upon has created unprecedented political anger.

This “age of anger” is a global phenomenon and it has deep roots. The dominance of multinationals, now more powerful than many nation states, has entrenched a system that is built on an army of insecure, low-paid workers whose lives are not properly their own. A state that feels itself powerless to change the system instead tries to deal with the consequences, not the cause, getting tough on benefits claimants and demonising unemployed people.

In the 1970s culture wars, it was Hugh Hefner v feminism | Samira Ahmed
Playboy led the patriarchal backlash against the sexual revolution. His legacy – the ‘eternal bachelor’ – is a fantasy that endures today

Once upon a time, in the 1950s, straight boys aspired to grow up to be loyal, married men and fathers. The real cultural legacy of Hugh Hefner is how he replaced that ideal with that of the eternal bachelor. The bachelor uses his salary not to support a wife and family, but on a consumer lifestyle of fine food, fancy toys and compliant, well-groomed, non-“frigid” contraceptive-pill-popping playmates.

In the literary pages of Playboy, which sold 7.2m copies at its 1972 peak, you could read Ian Fleming’s short stories about James Bond – the British cinematic poster boy for the Playboy brand. On screen we watched Hefner-surrogate 007 age with his dress-unzipping toys, until, embarrassed at his wrinkled, toupeed shenanigans, he was eventually reincarnated over and over in a younger body. As for its claims of social progress: the magazine might have interviewed Malcolm X – but where were all the black playmates?

By bowing to the braying internet mob, the Guggenheim forgot its purpose | Rupert Myers
The New York museum should be standing up for boldness and artistic expression, not withdrawing artworks at the first sign of online hysteria

Perhaps it is because we are so comfortable in the west, so blase about the culture we live in and intellectually fattened by the freedoms that we enjoy, that so many of us have just stopped thinking clearly. Why would New York’s Guggenheim Museum collapse under the pressure of a few animal rights protesters this week? Half a million petitioners whinging on the flimsiest of grounds forced the removal of three pieces of art featuring animals, because apparently the people tasked with managing the great legacy of Solomon Guggenheim, of running the “temple of spirit” conceived as a vital beacon of enlightenment culture, have forgotten the very purpose of art.

The Democratic party needs fresh faces | Lucia Graves

The party appears to be stuck with familiar faces thanks to never building a Democratic bench

It’s telling how regularly it happens that most prominent politician taking on Donald Trump is not some fiery Democratic upstart but Hillary Clinton, the Democrat he already beat. Nine months into Trump’s administration, it’s as if the campaign never ended.

And Clinton, though she’s typically the only one accused of overstaying her political welcome, is but one character in the Democratic party’s extended walk down memory lane.

‘A country that works for everyone’? Theresa May has already failed | Tom Watson
The Tory leader will arrive in Manchester to try to revive a series of tired promises. But they are meaningless, as the people of that city will know

Last week’s Labour conference was one of the most vibrant and exciting that I can remember, with thousands of enthusiastic new members taking part and hundreds of fringe meetings held across Brighton. Exciting ideas were discussed and debated, building on Labour’s vision of a more equal society in which prosperity is shared by the many instead of being hoarded by a few. All this made for a political energy I hadn’t seen for years.

The Nobel peace prize is a who’s who of hawks, hypocrites and war criminals

Aung San Suu Kyi is the latest Nobel peace prize laureate to bring the award into disrepute. But people misunderstand what it stands for: absolutely nothing

It’s that time of year again! The days are growing shorter and the smell of Nordic niceties is in the air. Yes, Monday marks the start of Nobel season, the world’s most prestigious prize-giving ceremony and our annual reminder that Norway exists. Over the course of the week, Nobel prizes will be awarded in six categories – but the only ones most people pay attention to are literature (particularly if the prize goes to a rock star) and peace.

There’s been quite a kerfuffle about the prestigious peace prize recently, what with that whole Aung San Suu Kyi being complicit in a genocide thing. Last month, Aung San Suu Kyi – who was awarded the 1991 Nobel peace prize “for her non-violent struggle for democracy and human rights” – spent weeks struggling to mention anything about the human rights abuses being committed against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. When she finally broke her silence in late September, it was to give a Trumpesque “both sides” sort of speech, which Amnesty International denounced as a “mix of untruths and victim-blaming”.

Ikea has filled every home I’ve rented. Now I want something more stable | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett
The company has been delighting shoppers – and buy-to-let landlords – in the UK for 30 years. But for me it has become a symbol of impermanence

Ikea celebrates its 30th birthday in the UK this year. I don’t think it hyperbolic to say that, since its arrival in 1987, it has transformed the way the British furnish their homes. It has entered the cultural mindset to such an extent that I feel a promise is required to readers that this column will contain no jokes about assembling flatpack furniture – the apparently humorous comfort blanket of every humdrum observational comedian on the circuit and panicking weekend supplement writer on deadline day.

America's OJ Simpson obsession oppressed me as a child. It still does | Sarah Perry

My mother was murdered a month and a day before Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. The media’s OJ Simpson obsession made it much harder to cope

The year after my mother’s murder was the year of the OJ Simpson trial. My mother, Crystal Perry, was killed one month and one day before Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, almost to the hour.

Nicole had a daughter, too, and a son. That long year, I kept thinking the daughter was 12, like me, but she was eight. I kept thinking she had found her mother’s body, like I had, but a neighbor had, or, more accurately, the neighbor’s little dog.

Lobbying firms paying our MPs? It’s probably fine… | David Mitchell
The Tory politician James Duddridge pockets £3,300 a month from a lobbying company, but don’t worry. If it were a problem, it wouldn’t be legal

What is the advantage of letting sitting MPs work for lobbying firms? What are the pluses of that, for the country? Because we do allow it, so I’m assuming there must be some upside.

After all, there are clear advantages to many things we don’t allow: smoking on petrol station forecourts, for example. Allowing that would mean, if you’re addicted to smoking, or enjoy smoking, or think smoking makes you look cool, you could do it while filling your car with petrol, polishing its bonnet, going to buy snacks, checking the tyres and so on. You wouldn’t be inconvenienced by either the discomfort of nicotine withdrawal or a hiatus in the image of nonchalant suavity that having a fag in your mouth invariably projects.

Will robots bring about the end of work?

Automation looks set to replace many jobs in the next few decades. What work will be left for humans to do?

Hal Varian, chief economist at Google, has a simple way to predict the future. The future is simply what rich people have today. The rich have chauffeurs. In the future, we will have driverless cars that chauffeur us all around. The rich have private bankers. In the future, we will all have robo-bankers.

One thing that we imagine that the rich have today are lives of leisure. So will our future be one in which we too have lives of leisure, and the machines are taking the sweat? We will be able to spend our time on more important things than simply feeding and housing ourselves?

Jeremy Corbyn’s nationalisation plans are music to ears of public

The Labour leader’s plans to take over railways, water and energy have high levels of public support

Few opinion polls that claim to detect a shift in public attitudes merit the ubiquitous label “landmark research”, but here’s one that does. The Legatum Institute, a thinktank, and Populus have found levels of support for nationalising large parts of the economy that would have been hard to believe a few years ago.

The big four industries in the sights of Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell should all return to public ownership, according to a strong majority of respondents. Water topped the poll (83%), followed by electricity (77%), gas (77%) and the railways (76%).

Fairness, balance and a muddle in the middle
The old newspaper divisions between comment and news are becoming increasingly muddied – but that can be a good thing

Political activists and political journalists used to inhabit different worlds. There were walls of tradition within newsrooms that separated writers of opinion pieces from reporters who, in theory at least, told the news straight. Big American papers even went to lengths of creating two distinct editorial lines of command with two effective editors: one for the news columns, another for the leader pages. Ah! happy, simpler days.

Serious-minded British newspapers of that distant time recognised basic distinctions. The Guardian, for instance, ran weekly columns from Tony Benn and other career politicians. They were clearly platforms for advocacy, though, not an expression of the paper’s own views.

Nobel prize for medicine awarded for insights into internal biological clock

£825,000 prize shared between American scientists Jeffrey C Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W Young for work on the internal clock of living organisms

The Nobel prize in physiology or medicine has been awarded to a trio of American scientists for their discoveries on the molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythms – in other words, the 24-hour body clock.

According to the Nobel committee’s citation, Jeffrey C Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W Young were recognised for their discoveries explaining “how plants, animals and humans adapt their biological rhythm so that it is synchronised with the Earth’s revolutions.”

Members of the first fire crews to attend Grenfell Tower have expressed frustration at the time it took to send backup engines, a delay that hampered their ability to evacuate more people, the head of the Fire Brigades Union has said.

Matt Wrack, who has spoken to between 25 and 30 of the firefighters who attended the blaze, said tthe delay may have been worsened by closures of local fire stations. He said some of the firefighters had asked the union to highlight concerns about the time they had to wait for the second wave of firefighters during the crucial early stages, as they struggled to evacuate residents.

The Room: the fall and rise of the men behind the 'Citizen Kane of bad movies'

Derided as the worst film ever made, The Room has become a cult classic with a James Franco film about it on the way. Now its creators Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero are back with a surreal thriller. It can’t be as bad, can it?

“What’s your favourite film?” asks a member of the audience. “Apocalypse Now,” says the director. “Back to the Future,” says one of the lead actors. Then his co-star – who has shoulder-length dyed black hair, an eastern European accent and is wearing sunglasses indoors, at night – answers: “Orson Welles.”

This isn’t the first time that Tommy Wiseau has appeared to miss the point. He financed, wrote, directed, executive-produced and starred in what is quite possibly the worst feature film ever made; a movie so cringe-inducingly terrible that the story behind its production is now being told in The Disaster Artist, a new Hollywood biopic directed by and starring James Franco.

The Bilbao effect: how Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim started a global craze

Opened 20 years ago this month, the glittering titanium museum had a wow factor that cities around the globe were soon clamouring to copy

When he got to Bilbao a month before it opened, says Frank Gehry, “I went over the hill and saw it shining there. I thought: ‘What the fuck have I done to these people?’” The “it” is the Bilbao Guggenheim museum, which made both its architect Gehry and the Basque city world-famous. Its achievement, measured in much-repeated metrics of visitor numbers and economic uplift, in global recognition and media coverage, in being, in effect, an Instagram sensation long before anyone knew what that might be, is prodigious. It revived belief that architecture could be ambitious, beautiful and popular all at once, yet Gehry has always said that its success took him by surprise.

The museum was opened 20 years ago this month, by the king and queen of Spain, since when it has become the most influential building of modern times. It has given its name to the “Bilbao effect” – a phenomenon whereby cultural investment plus showy architecture is supposed to equal economic uplift for cities down on their luck. It is the father of “iconic” architecture, the prolific progenitor of countless odd-shaped buildings the world over. Yet rarely, if ever, have the myriad wannabe Bilbaos matched the original. This is probably because it came about through a coincidence of conditions that is unlikely to happen again.

The 100 Best nonfiction books: No 87 - A Treatise of Human Nature by David Hume (1739)
This is widely seen as philosopher David Hume’s most important work, but its first publication was a disaster

The career of the Scottish philosopher David Hume is a parable of the writing life that speaks with eloquence about the strange and inexplicable progress of ideas in the marketplace of free debate. His career, moreover, is one that runs almost to the day he died, in 1776, just after the outbreak of the American revolution.

Hume was born and educated in Edinburgh, the son of a successful lawyer, and acquired a fierce appetite for philosophy at a precociously young age. After a mental breakdown as a student, and despite limited personal means, he spent three years of private study in France. Thereafter, he worked for four years on A Treatise of Human Nature. It was his first major work as a philosopher, and it bore the unwieldy subtitle “Being an Attempt to Introduce the Experimental Method of Reasoning into Moral Subjects”.Hume completed Treatise in 1738, aged 28, and published it anonymously in two volumes the following year.

Fibromyalgia: the pain behind Lady Gaga's poker face

Lady Gaga has been forced to cancel a number of shows due to the severe chronic pain condition fibromyalgia. But what is it?

Earlier this month, Lady Gaga announced the cancellation of the upcoming leg of her world tour due to her ongoing battle with fibromyalgia syndrome. Her behind-the-scenes Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five foot Two , charts her journey to Superbowl half-time show stardom, but also offers an intriguing glimpse into the challenges faced by someone living with chronic pain.

So, first to the question many of you may be asking yourselves: what on earth is fibromyalgia? In the simplest terms it is a chronic pain syndrome characterised by tenderness and pain in muscles and deep tissues. However there are many secondary symptoms that go along with this, and the biggest challenge for patients with the condition can be living with severe fatigue, broken sleep, psychological distress and mental lethargy known as ‘fibro-fog’ (although the list of potential symptoms goes on, meaning that each individual patient experience can be quite unique).

Is capitalism at a crossroads?
From Labour’s tumultuous assault on our economic failings to the PM’s defence of capitalism, there are signs that the entire system is up for discussion. We report on how the debate is shaping party politics, and analysts from across the spectrum consider where this debate will lead

Back in the days when Ed Miliband was being criticised for dragging the Labour party too far to the left, political junkies seeking a guide to the new times would often be pointed in the direction of a tome entitled Varieties of Capitalism. Much-thumbed-through by the former Labour leader, this groundbreaking collection of writings made the case that Anglo-American capitalism, with its emphasis on a small state, low taxes and a deregulated market, was not the only way to run a capitalist society. In Germany for example, they did things differently.

That was only a few years ago, but it seems like much longer. As the roars of a tumultuous sold-out Labour party conference continue to ring in the ears, the Conservatives are now assembling in Manchester in a state of high anxiety. For the question “Which variety of capitalism?” appears to have been replaced by an altogether starker choice to be directed at voters: “Capitalism or socialism?”

Britain’s 100 Best Railway Stations by Simon Jenkins – digested read

‘Of particular note is the M&S Simply Food from which the late Duke of Argyll used to buy his daily tuna and cucumber sandwich’

In Britain, the railway station is theatre. A place where tramps may mix freely with millionaires, a place like no other – apart from streets, ports and all sorts of other places. It is no exaggeration to say that the railway may be Britain’s greatest gift to the world, the apotheosis of the industrial revolution. It has become part of our national psyche, a symbol of longing for a time when to be British meant standing in the corridors because there weren’t enough seats on the train. And there is no greater glory to our railway network than our stations. Here are 100 that I’ve happened to visit in the last year or so.

Kamasi Washington: Harmony of Difference review – a glorious exploration of diversity
(Young Turks)

Credited with making jazz cool again, Kamasi Washington’s cosmic clout is undeniable. Following his acclaimed 2015 debut album The Epic, this EP finds him exploring the concept of diversity via counterpoint. Where The Epic might occasionally have felt directionless, the succinct nature of Harmony of Difference means there’s a clear purpose: Washington warmly traverses various themes (across both subject and music) and – via the wailing sax on Humility, the sleazy funk of Perspective, and the quasi-bossa nova of Integrity – it’s an enriching listen. The standout is Truth, taking and synthesising these themes into a gloriously cinematic, choir-laden masterpiece, seeking to remind us of the beautiful harmonies that differences bring.

Cutting out cows' milk? Here's how to keep up your iodine intake

The popularity of alternatives such as almond milk over cow’s correlates with increasingly low levels of the mineral in women – which can have serious health repercussions

Cow’s milk seems deeply unfashionable at the moment with sales of soya, almond and other milk substitutes growing year on year. Dairy producers are hitting back with the introduction of a fizzy fruit and milk drink (no, me neither). But a recent study by the University of Surrey found that the majority of milk alternatives do not have adequate levels of the mineral iodine, with concentrations at around 2% of that found in cow’s milk (although some are fortified). That is a worry because we need iodine to make thyroid hormones that regulate metabolism and are essential for brain development in the womb and early life. Babies born with low levels of these hormones (hypothyroidism) may have learning difficulties in later life. All newborn babies in the UK are currently screened at five days old for the condition and given prompt treatment if diagnosed. But evidence suggests that teenage girls and pregnant women are increasingly likely to have low iodine levels and it is unclear what repercussions this may have on them or their children.

Dairy products and white fish are the important dietary sources of iodine in the UK and the low levels in teenage girls may be due to the trend of cutting out dairy, especially cow’s milk. Many countries add iodine to salt but not in the UK, as excess iodine is also bad for thyroid function. Seaweed such as kelp has lots of iodine, but you can have too much of a good thing so it is best not to eat it more than once a week, especially during pregnancy.

The Rub of Time by Martin Amis review – a lit crit lion bares his claws
Insight vies with self-regard in this anthology of essays on everything from poker to porn

Ahead of his unsuccessful assault on the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, as described with wan good humour in one of the essays here, Martin Amis had dinner with Anthony Holden and James McManus (“two of the top writer-players in pokerdom”). McManus, seeing him off after dinner, said: “Don’t be intimidated, man! Remember – you’re Martin fucking Amis!”

Being Martin fucking Amis: as a few of these pieces make clear, it’s a burden and an exaltation. Reading the very entertaining poker piece, for instance, you note that the author quotes the compliment, but also that he spends the rest of the article (which describes the swagger of his ambition and its abrupt deflation when, with Amis all-in, his opponent rivers a better set than his fives) undermining it. He’s Martin fucking Amis; also, fucking Martin Amis.

Will bitcoin ever be a safe investment or always a gamble?
Demand is increasing, alongside criticism, so if you want to get involved in the cryptocurrency then awareness is key. Shane Hickey reports

The boss of JP Morgan was unequivocal about bitcoin at a recent conference in New York: the digital currency was only fit for drug dealers and would eventually blow up. “[It] isn’t going to work,” said Jamie Dimon. “You can’t have a business where people can invent a currency out of thin air and think that the people who are buying it are really smart.”

A few days after Dimon’s comments, the value of bitcoin plunged when the Chinese authorities announced a crackdown on it. It has been an eventful month, even in the context of a currency that is less than a decade old. Since the start of the year the value of a single bitcoin has gone from $1,000 (£750) to almost $5,000.

Nasako Besingi, who has led opposition to a US-funded 73,000 hectare farm in a biodiverse rainforest, is among more than 100 individuals who have been detained during an escalation of tension between the predominantly French-speaking authorities and the country’s large English-speaking minority.

'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.

Eight to 10 members of a remote indigenous group were allegedly killed by men working for illegal prospectors in Javari Valley

Brazilian authorities are investigating reports of a massacre of up to 10 people from an isolated tribe in the Amazon by illegal gold miners.

The killings, alleged to have taken place in Javari Valley, are claimed to have been carried out by men working for gold prospectors who dredge illegally in the region’s rivers.

The victims were targeted by a criminal gang who wanted to use their lands to grow lucrative palm oil, according to local indigenous leaders


Six farmers have been shot dead by a criminal gang who wanted to seize their farms to muscle in on the lucrative palm oil trade, according to indigenous Amazon leaders in Peru.

Local leaders in the central Amazon region of Ucayali say the victims were targeted last Friday because they had refused to give up their land.

'We'd rather die than lose': villagers in Indonesia fight for a land rights revolution

A small community on the island of Sumatra is at the heart of a battle for traditional territories that could finally resolve the muddled and exploitative system of laws governing land ownership in Indonesia

It is cold and late on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Huddled around a map, a group of elders are planning their battle strategy. In a milestone victory last year, they were promised rights to the land their village has controlled for generations, but today they have had bad news. The local inspector wants to slice off a piece of the forest where they harvest benzoin – a substance like frankincense – and give it to a large pulp company. They see this as a betrayal.

The elders debate in a mix of languages – Batak and bahasa Indonesia – while sipping tea and planning how they will resume the fight the next day. For years now, almost every day has involved this kind of planning.

Tributes paid to 'silent hero' wildlife conservationist killed in Tanzania

Government officials and fellow conservationists paid tribute to Wayne Lotter at a special memorial yesterday

Hundreds of people gathered at Baobab Village in Dar es Salaam to pay tribute to Wayne Lotter on Tuesday evening, as tributes continued to come in from around the world.

Lotter, 51, was shot and killed last week while travelling in a taxi from the airport to his hotel on Dar es Salaam’s Msasani Peninsula. Lotter, who co-founded PAMS Foundation, a conservation nonprofit, was responsible for supporting anti-poaching efforts that had led to the arrests of more than 2000 ivory poachers and traffickers, and had taken down several key poaching syndicates in the country. He had received numerous death threats since starting the organization in 2009.

Three more rangers killed in a deadly month around the world for wildlife defenders

Wildlife protection has become an increasingly dangerous business as rangers face armed gunmen and poachers

Three rangers have been killed in separate countries in a deadly month for wildlife defenders.

A ranger at Serra da Capivara national park, in Brazil’s north-eastern Piaui region, was killed by hunters on 18 August. Edilson Aparecido dos Santos and two other colleagues were patrolling the park when they were ambushed by a group of four armed men who are believed to have been hunting in the park illegally. Dos Santos was killed in the shootout that followed, while the other two rangers were injured.

Tanzanian police believe wildlife activist may have been tracked by his killer

A police insider has told the Guardian that the killers of Wayne Lotter may have been following him

Police believe Wayne Lotter’s killer may have followed and targeted the conservationist when he was shot on Wednesday, according to inside sources.

Lotter was stopped and then fatally shot while travelling by taxi from Dar es Salaam airport to a hotel. He had been working in Tanzania for many years, exposing and jailing wildlife poachers and traffickers, and he had received a number of death threats. Tanzania’s director for criminal investigation, Robert Boaz, said a murder investigation was underway.

Dizzee Rascal makes Twitter threat to 'kill' fellow rapper Wiley

The rapper also accused his former musical collaborator of sex with underage girls during the pair’s latest row

Dizzee Rascal has made threats towards fellow rapper Wiley on social media, saying that “one day you’re [going to] push me too far and I’m going to kill you”, in a since-deleted tweet. He also claimed Wiley had sex with a 14-year-old girl, in a continuation of the pair’s long-standing spat.

Over the weekend, the grime trailblazers argued about their status within the genre on Twitter. Dizzee Rascal, whose real name is Dylan Mills, also alleged that Wiley had had sex with a minor, commenting: “I’ve never seen a nonce so protected since Savile.”

Stella McCartney lays waste to disposable fashion in Paris

The designer continues to break down barriers by showing how ethical clothing can hold its own on high-end catwalks

“Glamour for its own sake is not something I have ever been particularly interested in,” Stella McCartney said backstage after her catwalk show. Which could sound like a facetious statement from a fashion designer who was, at that moment, standing among the marble-slabbed floors, elaborately frescoed ceilings and giant chandeliers of the Palais Garnier opera house, where the show was staged.

But McCartney has broken down barriers between high fashion and ethical fashion by straddling two worlds. Her mission statement is that clothes made from sustainable viscose and cruelty-free alternatives to leather should not be targeted at a niche market, but shown to hold their own on the Paris fashion week catwalk.

Bruce takes Broadway: Springsteen's stage show is a risky business

As Bruce Springsteen’s Broadway production gets under way, he joins the pantheon of rockers who have trod the boards with varying degrees of success

Bruce Springsteen’s much-ballyhooed Broadway run will begin in previews on Tuesday, but the question remains: just what kind of show is it? The boss has said that Springsteen on Broadway isn’t a theatrical extravaganza, or a jukebox musical, or an acting exercise, or just a small-scale concert. Rather, he has vaguely described it as a mix of song and storytelling, the latter drawn from Born to Run, his highly romanticized autobiography published last year. It sounds a bit like what Ray Davies presented in his 1996 talking/singing show Storyteller.

At least we know Springsteen’s shindig won’t have to worry about drawing a crowd. The limited engagement, set to run five times a week through February, instantly sold out every one of its 960 seats per night, inspiring tickets on the resale market that soar from $700 to $2,400. Despite the show’s assured financial boon, it will still have to be judged by critics and fans within the context of the long, and controversial, history of pop stars representing their work in a variety of forms on Broadway. Over the years, other stars have launched far more ambitious projects, penning wholly original musical works. Here’s a look at the best, and worst.

Sir Brian Barder obituary
Diplomat who negotiated the provision of aid to Ethiopia during the 1980s famine

Brian Barder, who has died aged 83, was one of the most energetic and politically committed diplomats of his generation. In retirement, he campaigned against injustices in the British legal system. From a range of postings from New York to Australia, the Soviet Union, Canada, Poland and Nigeria, his most gruelling but rewarding service came as Britain’s ambassador in Addis Ababa during the great Ethiopian famine of 1984-85. As the crisis developed, he waited with trepidation at an airfield in the capital with his wife, Jane. Media barons such as Robert Maxwell and rock stars including Bob Geldof were helping to fuel massive media and parliamentary pressure for Britain to help to feed the millions of starving people.

The UK government decided to send three RAF Hercules freight planes with aid. But after constant effort Barder had still not managed to get official clearance for them to land. Ethiopia’s socialist leadership was split, with hardliners arguing that no planes from a Nato air force should be allowed inside their country. Their main weapons supplier, the Soviet Union, took a similar line.

Danny Baker: ‘I’m not someone for brooding indoors and then doing a think piece’

Danny Baker has spent years delighting listeners with anecdotes and opinions on everything from football to BBC bean counters. He talks to Alex Clark about battling cancer – and the establishment. Plus: an extract from his new book, Going On The Turn

Danny Baker says: “Couldn’t be better,” when our waiter asks him how he is today. “Giving off sparks!” And, with the exception of the months he spent undergoing intense and gruelling treatment for the cancer of the head and neck that was diagnosed in 2010, the odds on him replying in precisely the same way on nine days out of 10 are high. The radio presenter, comedy writer and one-time punk correspondent for the NME, was last contestant in and first voted out (“a tremendous joke in and of itself”) of the last I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! This excoriator of the “pin-headed weasels” and bean-counters of his radio employers BBC London, and chronicler of his upbringing in Bermondsey, south London, has one main aim in life: “To live for pleasure alone.”

“And I think I have,” he says. “I came out of the womb doing it.” Partly, he laughs, because it was his birth, in the summer of 1957, that led to his family – mother, father and elder brother and sister – securing a brand-new council house on an estate he loved so much that he’d panic if he thought about the prospect of moving. “I thought I was partially responsible. My mum used to say: ‘You did this, our lovely garden and a bathroom.’ I grew up bullet proof.”

OJ Simpson: an eternal symbol of racial division – or has America moved on?

He’s the subject of documentaries, dramas and enduring fascination. But as OJ Simpson walks free, does he still stir a meaningful debate about race?

Older, greyer and chubbier, a punchline for late-night TV hosts, all he apparently seeks is a quiet life and “simple pleasures” like seafood, steak and a new iPhone.

Western Canada by train: Rockies on a roll | Robin McKie

Robin McKie climbs aboard the Rocky Mountaineer for a feast of fine food and spectacular Canadian scenery

Robin Williams once described Canada as a luxury loft apartment that sits above a really great party. The comparison flattered the United States (presumably the fun place underneath), but you can see what he meant. Canada is a soothing oasis that has space and tranquillity. It’s a destination that is … well it’s lofty. And given that Canadians are this year celebrating their homeland’s 150th birthday, it should be a priority in any self-respecting traveller’s bucket list.

And to be specific about its attractions, there is nothing to beat the Rockies, one of the planet’s greatest mountain ranges: a wilderness of glittering white peaks, hidden valleys, vast forests, very few people and a smattering of wonderful animals that include wolves, elks and bears. All you have to do is to find a way to see these wonders.

Brain game: how fasting can make us brighter | Daniel Glaser

Eating less triggers a chemical in the brain that forms new brain cells

Many Jewish readers will be looking forward to a healthy breakfast this morning after the 25-hour fast of Yom Kippur which ended just after sunset yesterday. Although fasting is a part of many religious traditions, the evidence for its effect on the brain is mixed.

What does seem clear is that calorific restriction (through fasting, the 5:2 diet or just eating less) is one of a familiar set of interventions that can help to keep your brain healthy. Along with physical exercise and intensive mental activity, fasting seems to increase the production of a helpful chemical called BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) which supports the formation of new connections and even new brain cells. It is one of a range of responses to mild stress that ends up making you stronger.

Vaginal mesh scandal: women don’t need body-shaming on top of their pain | Barbara Ellen

The appalling problems with J&J’s vaginal mesh could not have persisted for so long without a basic lack of respect for women and their bodies

The ongoing vaginal mesh implant scandal is a complex affair, with group lawsuits erupting all around the world, including the US, the UK and Australia. Last week, Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit was ordered to pay a record $57m in damages to a woman called Ella Ebaugh. The J&J implant, launched without a clinical trial, is still marketed, often in cases involving traumatic births, years after it was known to cause appalling problems to women such as Ebaugh, including intense pelvic pain and torn bladders and vaginas, leading to agonising sex and incontinence.

While many women don’t have problems with vaginal meshes, those who do suffer horribly.

We hail individual geniuses, but success in science comes through collaboration | Jeremy Farrar
This week’s Nobel winners will have drawn on teams, often multinational, now threatened by Brexit

When we think of famous scientists, we think of Albert Einstein, perhaps Marie Curie or Francis Crick. More recently, there’s Peter Higgs, known for the Higgs boson, Andre Geim for graphene or John O’Keefe for his work on the GPS systems in our brains. Though they span vastly different scientific disciplines, they all have one thing in common – they are all Nobel prize winners.

Nobel laureates give a human face to science, a discipline that can often seem anonymous to those who aren’t directly involved. They are great figures in history whose discoveries have transformed our understanding of the universe and in many cases improved our lives in ways that cannot be overestimated.

What I’m really thinking: the twentysomething divorcee

We’d been together for six years and romance doesn’t last for ever, does it?

If you invite me to your wedding or hen party, you’ll handle me in one of three ways. One: you brief everyone, so there’s no chance they’ll ask about my relationship status. Two: you shoot me a sympathetic glance when something romantic happens and tell me how tired you are of wedding planning. Three: you don’t acknowledge my divorce at all, and treat me exactly the same as every other guest. The third is my favourite. The world already gives me ample reminders that I am different from most people my age.

I was married at 23, divorced by 25. Some of you were at the wedding and have no doubt revisited that day, searching for clues that the marriage was doomed. It turns out there were none; everything was wrong from the start, but we were all too young to notice, or too polite to point it out.
