A US military agency is investing $100m in genetic extinction technologies which could wipe out malarial mosquitoes, invasive rodents or other species, emails released under freedom of information rules show.

The documents suggest that the US’s secretive Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), has become the world’s largest funder of “gene drive” research, and will raise tensions ahead of a UN expert committee meeting in Montreal beginning on Tuesday.

Researchers share $22m Breakthrough prize as science gets rock star treatment

Glitzy ceremony honours work including that on mapping post-big bang primordial light, cell biology, plant science and neurodegenerative disease

The most glitzy event on the scientific calendar took place on Sunday night when the Breakthrough Foundation gave away $22m (£16.3m) in prizes to dozens of physicists, biologists and mathematicians at a ceremony in Silicon Valley.

The winners this year include five researchers who won $3m (£2.2m) each for their work on cell biology, plant science and neurodegenerative diseases, two mathematicians, and a team of 27 physicists who mapped the primordial light that warmed the universe moments after the big bang 13.8 billion years ago.

‘This is hell out here’: how Behrouz Boochani's diaries expose Australia’s refugee shame

The journalist fled Iran for Australia in 2013, and was sent to a detention centre on Manus Island, where he has been held ever since. His dispatches for the Guardian reveal the true horror of conditions at the Papua New Guinea camp

In 2013, the journalist Behrouz Boochani, an ethnic Kurd, fled Iran after several of his colleagues were arrested. The decisions he took then have defined his life and in turn led to him becoming the essential witness to Australia’s hardline refugee policy.

Boochani travelled through south-east Asia and then by boat to Christmas Island, an Australian territory closer to Indonesia. From there he was deported to Manus Island, a remote part of Papua New Guinea (PNG), where he has been held ever since.

Berlin exhibition questions CIA's influence on global art scene

The Trump era has prompted Germany to review the historic effects of America’s soft power, and debate Berlin’s future relationship with Washington

In Europe’s city of spies, it was a feat of cold war counter-propaganda: a modernist congress centre with an audaciously curved roof, gifted by America to West Berlin in direct response to the buildup of Soviet’s Stalinallee boulevard on the other side of town.

Its initiator, Eleanor Dulles, a sister of the head of the CIA at the time, announced Berlin’s House of the Cultures of the World in 1956 as “a bright beacon shining light into the east”.

'Addis has run out of space': Ethiopia's radical redesign

As Addis Ababa creaks under the weight of a mushrooming populace, sub-Saharan Africa’s largest housing project is under way. But who benefits?

Wrapped in a white shawl and sporting a wide-brimmed cowboy hat, Haile stares out at his cattle as they graze in a rocky patch of grass. “My family and I have been here since I was a child,” he says, nodding at the small, rickety houses to his right. “But we will have to leave soon.” In the distance loom hulking grey towers, casting long shadows over his pasture. This is Koye Feche, a vast construction site on the edge of Addis Ababa that may soon be sub-Saharan Africa’s largest housing project.

Koye is the latest in a handful of miniature cities that are gobbling up land all around the Ethiopian capital. Since launching the integrated housing and development plan (IHDP) in 2006, the Ethiopian government has built condominium estates like these at a pace unrivalled anywhere in Africa. To date, more more than 250,000 subsidised flats have been transferred to their new owner-occupiers in Addis Ababa and smaller towns. Situated 25km south-east of the city centre and covering over 700 hectares of land, Koye will house more than 200,000 people in row upon row of muscular concrete high-rises.

How white engineers built racist code – and why it's dangerous for black people

As facial recognition tools plays a bigger role in fighting crime, inbuilt racial biases raise troubling questions about the systems that create them

“You good?” a man asked two narcotics detectives late in the summer of 2015.

The detectives had just finished an undercover drug deal in Brentwood, a predominately black neighborhood in Jacksonville, Florida, that is among the poorest in the country, when the man unexpectedly approached them. One of the detectives responded that he was looking for $50 worth of “hard”– slang for crack cocaine. The man disappeared into a nearby apartment and came back out to fulfill the detective’s request, swapping the drugs for money.

Loneliness of Greta Garbo laid bare as letters put up for sale

Actor wrote to a Swedish friend about her loathing for Beverly Hills and fears over how her films would be received

The woman in the photographs is almost unrecognisable as one of the most famously solitary stars of the 20th century: striding out on skis across a snowy landscape, chopping logs, sunbathing topless, cradling an armful of puppies – it is Greta Garbo, laughing among cherished friends.

The woman who emerges from letters carefully preserved for a lifetime by her friends along with the private album, and now to be sold at a Sotheby’s auction, is heartbreakingly different from the sociable, jolly figure in the photos. They were written when Garbo was back in the United States, despairing over feeble scripts, raging at stupid directors, terrified of the verdict of critics, which could be no harsher than her own.

Sweet as honey: the African killer bees providing a living in Liberia | Lorraine Mallinder

A corps of master beekeepers is leading a drive to produce honey for the growing domestic market, offering subsistence farmers a new livelihood

Liberian beekeeper Cecil Wilson is holding up a honeycomb, crawling with hundreds of so-called killer bees. They are the most aggressive in Africa, but the honey is good, he says, as they start swarming around him.

African bees – or Apis mellifera scutellata, to be precise – are not to be messed with. Not for nothing did they feature in 1978 disaster horror flick The Swarm. But for an increasing number of Liberians, still struggling to get by in a shattered postwar economy, they are providing a much-needed livelihood.

Ashes 2017-18: Australia v England second Test, day three – live!

9th over: Australia 15-1 (Warner 2, Khawaja 7) Khawaja is playing very well and defends throughout another maiden from Anderson. He has figures of 5-4-4-1. It’s interesting that, for all the seductive swing, Anderson’s pitch map shows that 62 per cent of his deliveries have been short of a length.

“Imagine if England had batted first (ie, if Root had thought outside the box) - yes they might have been bowled out for 240/50 but at least would have had a go at Australia in the evening session which is a huge advantage, as we now see (and all knew beforehand),” says Andrew Hurley. “Root doesn’t seem to have any of those ingredients it takes to be a good captain.”

8th over: Australia 15-1 (Warner 2, Khawaja 7) Warner chases a very wide delivery from Broad and is beaten. “Did he nick that?” says Stuart Broad to Jonny Bairstow. England only have one review left so they can’t risk it. Batting is becoming slightly more comfortable at Broad’s end.

“Is it cowardly to pray for smog?” says John Dalby. “I’ll get my coat. And mask.”

Tiger Woods follows Rickie Fowler’s final-round 61 with 2018 majors pledge
• Woods claim partly overshadows Fowler’s Hero World Challenge triumph
• Sky on verge of securing new Masters deal after fending off BT

Even Rickie Fowler’s stunning closing round of 61, which claimed the Hero World Challenge by four shots, was not enough to switch the narrative. Even Tiger Woods’s Sunday 68, meaning three sub-70 rounds out of four, failed to be as significant as what came later.

Woods, in the immediate aftermath of his first completed tournament in 12 months, declared his intention to play regularly in 2018. He even, tantalisingly, touched upon his desire to add to a majors haul which currently sits – and seemed destined to close – at 14. Tiger’s back?

Pollution stops play at Delhi Test match as bowlers struggle to breathe

A cricket Test match between India and Sri Lanka was repeatedly interrupted on Sunday with claims players were “continuously vomiting” due to hazardous pollution levels in the Indian capital.

Commentators said it was the first recorded instance of an international match being halted due to the toxic smog that afflicts much of north India year-round but worsens to hazardous levels during winter months.

The club are playing in their first ever season in the Italian top flight but had lost each of their previous 14 games, and looked to be on their way to a 15th defeat with Milan leading in the 95th minute.

The backlash would be considerable if England do not find their way out of Group G containing Belgium, Tunisia and the World Cup debutants Panama. But Glenn insisted even failure to reach the knockout stages of the tournament would not automatically spell the end for Southgate.

Paul Pogba was United’s heartbeat but has given José Mourinho a headache | Amy Lawrence
The French midfielder sat out the dying moments of the thrilling 3-1 victory at Arsenal but will be sorely missed for the Manchester derby and beyond

A French midfielder with massive presence sent off in an intense match between Manchester United and Arsenal reflected on his emotions in the dressing room, mind whirring while the latter stages of the game was played without him. “It’s tough, especially in a big moment like that,” he said. “You feel like you let the team down. There are so many emotions going through your mind, and everything is negative – I was so mad about the red card.” As it happens, those words belong to Patrick Vieira, who experienced the frustration of being dismissed – unfairly in his view – in a simmering encounter at Old Trafford in 2003.

Like Vieira on that heated day, the result ended up favourable enough for Paul Pogba this weekend to ensure the immediate vexation was not punished, as his team-mates maintained a meaningful result without him. But the aftermath brings added complications. For club and player, suspension for this weekend’s showdown against Manchester City, plus a couple more games on top, is a bitter pill.

Victory over Springboks must not lull Wales into false sense of security | Paul Rees

Liam Williams, George North and Justin Tipuric are among the players who will return for the Six Nations but it is the lack of ball-carrying options that will tax coach Warren Gatland going forward

Relief was quickly followed by reality for Wales. Victory against a side that could only be identified as South Africa by the colour of the jerseys completed a mediocre year on a high and their first match in 2018 here against Scotland promises to be a lot more taxing.

  • Oklahoma and Georgia will meet in the Rose Bowl

The Crimson Tide got the nod over Ohio State and will play Clemson in the College Football Playoff on 1 January in the Sugar Bowl. Oklahoma and Georgia will meet in the Rose Bowl semi-final a few hours earlier.

Tide or Buckeyes was the question facing the selection committee, the toughest call in the four-year history of the playoff. The Tide had been more consistent and lost just once. The Buckeyes lost twice, including an embarrassing 31-point beating at unranked Iowa, but have the more impressive set of victories. Ohio State won the Big Ten while Alabama did not even win their Southeastern Conference division.

It is in football's best interests for Fifa to intervene in FFA crisis

After two years of failure to resolve the governance crisis, Lowy’s suggestion of further meditation is fanciful

Later on Monday, in a conference room in Zurich, the 19 representatives of Fifa’s Member Associations Committee will gather to sift through the wreckage of Australian football’s governance crisis. It seems impossible this body could do anything other than recommend Fifa intervenes decisively to resolve an increasingly bitter dispute, one that plumbed new depths either side of last week’s AGM.

Fifa instructed FFA to comply with statute 15 (j) and democratise its governing congress by 30 November. That deadline was itself an extension from 30 March, a date in turn six months after a Fifa delegation visited Australia to spell out their concerns.

Shaun Marsh’s last chance puts him at centre of Australia’s Ashes domination | Adam Collins
The batsman thought his Test career might be over, but his century at Adelaide was perfectly judged and has put Australia in position to win the series

“You beauty!” It did not require sophisticated lip-reading skills to understand Shaun Marsh when charging down the pitch in response to reaching three figures. Simple words from a straightforward character, coated with very real emotion from the most maligned player of his generation.

Marsh’s inclusion in this side could never be divorced from the fact that it is his eighth chance to prevail in the baggy green across seven years. But that charmed run looked to be over after Australia’s tour of India in March. Then, he lost both his place and national contract before the return trip to the subcontinent in August for a tour of Bangladesh.

Despite defeat, sun shines again for Ben Stokes as he makes tentative return

‘It is a moral conundrum,’ says one spectator as the England all-rounder draws a large crowd for his first game since his arrest

Under a hot southern sky, English cricketer Ben Stokes warmed up on a New Zealand provincial ground more used to hosting hedgehogs than international sporting stars.

Ringed by pine trees and oaks, Mainpower Oval, 30 minutes outside Christchurch, gradually filled with spectators as 11am approached on Sunday. Lord’s it wasn’t, but at least we had Lorde’s Melodrama blaring out across the sleepy pitch.

Tiger Woods overcomes slow start and battles back in Bahamas

• Former world No1 signs for three-over 75 after disastrous start to third round
• Charley Hoffman leads field at Hero World Challenge following Saturday 70

It was the 10-hole setback lurking in the dark recesses of Tiger Woods’s mind. It was an intervention from reality as fairytale threatened to take over. A grim Saturday spell at the Hero World Challenge illustrated that fevered anticipation – as linked to next year’s Masters betting, for example – surrounding Woods remains heavily offset by facts.

It would be unfair to focus on such troubles without highlighting the admirable response that followed it. Woods toiled badly in reaching the 11th tee at five-over par for his third round. In the most testing winds of the event, the 14-times major champion had dropped a shot at the 1st and hopelessly grasped for confidence boosts thereafter.

All the signs in the Russia probe point to Jared Kushner. Who next? | Jill Abramson
The investigation is taking a new twist, as Donald Trump appears to be distancing himself from his son-in-law

Game of Trumps is about to get really bloody. With special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation moving ever closer to President Trump himself, it looks like someone inside the family is about to be sacrificed.

With Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleading guilty last week to the charge of lying to the FBI, much more about the Russia scandal is now coming into focus. The Flynn flip was by far the most dramatic event so far in the investigation into alleged Russian interference in 2016’s US presidential race. Flynn’s evidence can only lead up the chain of power towards Trump.

The key to a great Christmas film: misery and mayhem | Jack Bernhardt
From Trading Places to The Santa Clause, classic festive films contain more than their fair share of murder, suicide and doomed relationships

At first glance, it might appear that Christmas films are pretty easy to make. Take a mediocre family film, put everyone in knitted jumpers, have a couple of scenes set at a snowy ice rink where the protagonist delivers some festive dialogue (“brrr, it sure is cold this mid-to-late December”), and just like that, you’ve got a film like Daddy’s Home 2, a film so Christmassy it’s made everyone in the world forget all those things Mel Gibson said about Jews and black people.

But creating a classic Christmas movie is actually quite hard. For one thing, the original story of Christmas is kind of a snoozefest - “I gave birth in a barn and then a bunch of academics gave me some gold” is a killer anecdote to liven up a dinner party, but not a great basis for 2,000 years of storytelling. For a Christmas movie to really pop, it needs some magic ingredients. After extensive research (hey, I’ve read more than 10 plot summaries of Christmas movies on Wikipedia) I can reveal the secret elements for creating the most joyous Christmas movies ever!

If Meghan Markle represents the ‘mixed-race community’, what about me? | Georgia Chambers

Her engagement to Prince Harry has been seized on to prove how far Britain’s come on race. But it’s not as neat and simple as that

When Prince Harry announced his engagement to Meghan Markle it was clear she was going to be a very “different” kind of princess. Markle is a successful American actor and campaigner for women’s rights. But the many headlines that labelled her “unconventional” did so not because of her career or anything particularly striking about her personal life, but because of the fact that she is mixed-race.

Environmental injustice is rising in America. And minorities and the poor pay the price | Mustafa Santiago Ali

Protecting the environment is about protecting people. The assault the Trump Administration is waging on our environment will have drastic implications for the health of people and communities in every state, no matter the color of skin or income level.

The Guardian view on the Catalonia election: the challenge of compromise | Editorial
Campaigning begins this week in an election that will shape Spain and affect the whole of Europe. First, the region’s imprisoned political leaders should be freed to campaign

Campaigning in Catalonia’s 21 December regional election begins officially on Tuesday. Opinion polls show pro- and anti-independence political parties running neck and neck. But the outcome will shape the future not just of Catalonia and Spain but of other European nations and EU institutions.

This election was triggered by the Madrid government after it enacted article 155 of the Spanish constitution in October – an unprecedented move that led to the formal suspension of the region’s autonomy. Spain’s prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, hoped this would help him to gain time, while working to dampen secessionist feeling, including by floating ideas about an enhanced version of Catalan autonomy for the future. Now things are set to accelerate again. More, not less, political turmoil could lie ahead.

The real hate club: we shouldn’t scroll back too far in the Twittersphere | Eva Wiseman

Exposing decades old bigotry is uncomfortable, mostly because it reminds us of our own complicity

It’s like one of those fill-in-the-blank name games, where you find, say, your hipster pop-up restaurant name by taking the way you’d least like to die followed by the meat you’d like to try least. Except in this case, you take a celebrity you hate, and then search their social media for the most offensive words you can think of.

Last week we saw YouTuber Jack Maynard leave I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! after the Sun published tweets from 2011 to 2013 in which he’d used the words “niggas” and “retarded”, Zoella (the beauty vlogger who earns £50,000 a month) apologised for mocking “fat chavs” in 2010 and grime star Stormzy apologised for tweets sent between 2011 and 2014 which contained the word “faggot”.

Income inequality is getting wider. If the stats count what counts

The Tories say the income gap is not growing and cite data that ignores key contributors to the wealth of the top 1% such as capital gains and inheritance

Forget all that guff about a growing gap between rich and poor, says Philip Hammond. Pay no heed to Jeremy Corbyn when he talks of how he will deliver for the many not the few, Theresa May says. The chancellor and the prime minister might not always see eye to eye, but on this at least they are in unison: income inequality is at its lowest since the mid-1980s.

May regularly makes this point when she is fending off attacks on inequality from Corbyn at prime minister’s questions. Buried away in the depths of the budget speech, Hammond said exactly the same. It’s not hard to see why. The Conservatives are uncomfortable with the idea that they are the party of the 1%, so evidence to the contrary is mighty useful.

Markets rally after Trump's tax victory; UK construction growth picks up – business live

All the day’s economic and financial news, as news that the US Senate has passed Donald Trump’s tax reform bill lifts shares and the US dollar

Breaking: Britain’s construction sector grew at its fastest rate in five months in November.

Markit’s latest PMI survey shows that housebuilding picked up last month, bringing some relief to Britain’s builders after an autumn slowdown.

Good news! Markit " UK Construction output rises at fastest pace for five months, led by housing " #GDP #GBP

“UK construction companies experienced a solid yet uneven improvement in business conditions during November. Once again, resilient house building growth helped to offset lower volumes of commercial work and civil engineering activity.

“Survey respondents noted that residential projects underpinned the rebound in total new order growth to its strongest since June, helped by strong demand fundamentals and a supportive policy backdrop.

Trump’s push to cut America’s corporation from 35% to 20% could encourage US companies to repatriate some of their immense overseas cash piles.

Fortune Magazine says this is a victory for tech giants, who have lobbied hard on this issue:

Tech companies like Apple and Microsoft have for a long time balked at the 35% corporate tax the current tax code requires them to pay on worldwide profits returned to the U.S. To avoid paying, the companies have parked as much of their profit as possible in overseas subsidiaries in countries like Bermuda and Ireland, where tax rates are low.

The Big 5 tech companies–Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft–currently have a combined $457 billion held in overseas subsidiaries. Apple holds more profits overseas than any other company, with Microsoft not far behind.

Two weeks after two US border patrol agents were found with head injuries by a drainage channel next to a freeway in remote west Texas, how one of them died remains a mystery.

At least, the late-night incident in which 36-year-old Rogelio Martinez died is a puzzle to the FBI, which is investigating.

How homophobia feeds Russia’s HIV epidemic
In a country where gay people are persecuted by society and the state, even getting tested for HIV is fraught with problems

‘Condoms can’t protect you from HIV,” says Vladislav Ivanov, a 34-year-old hotel worker from Rostov-on-Don. He is one of an estimated 1.5 million people in Russia living with HIV. And because he is not receiving treatment, he is at a high risk of passing on the virus.

Does this worry him? “Yes, but I still don’t wear condoms because I don’t like them. Most people in Russia think condoms can’t protect you from HIV. People think of them only in terms of contraception.”

Black skin and freckles – a lesser-seen face of diversity

The British model Adwoa Aboah’s signature freckles have helped launch a celebration of black skin in all its variety

Last week my very fashionable friend turned up to a party with a dark spray of freckles across her nose, paired with thick eyeliner wings and vibrant eyeshadow in a heavy yellow pigment. Staring at her bemused, I realised, for the first time in my community of people of colour, freckles had become an accessory. My friend is not naturally freckled. She had painted each one on delicately with the precision of a master makeup artist, using the tip of a brown liquid eyeliner.

I should have seen it coming. For at least three years, fashion magazines have been lauding freckles. In 2014, the Guardian itself asked if they were “the new fake tan” and gave tips on how to perfect a fake spray. But now for the black community, the visibility of freckles seems at an all time high. And yes, black people can definitely have freckles.

?Men’s tailoring: five new? ?ways ?to wear a suit?

The stiff, formal suit has had its day. For the man about town, tailoring is now all about relaxed functionality

Menswear is one big set of carefully calibrated rules, formulated over centuries, to create oven-ready “good taste” – to which some designers and tailors have said: “Enough!”

OK, maybe not that strongly – they’re not jettisoning everything. But there is a sense that the tectonic plates of menswear are undergoing one of their periodic shifts. And the suit, despite the prediction that all of us will dress like normcore nerds a la Mark Zuckerburg, currently leads the charge. Here then, are five new ways to rock tailored clothing. Not rules. Just new ideas.

Terrawatch: the reawakening of Öræfajökull

While the world watches Agung, thousands of kilometres away another volcano is quaking and geologists are beginning to feel jittery

All eyes have been on Mount Agung for the past week, watching the mesmerising clouds of ash pouring out of this tempestuous Indonesian volcano. Right now, the question is whether it is building for a repeat of the devastating eruption in 1963, when lava and lahars (rivers of water and rock) flooded hectares of land in minutes, killing 1,100 people.

Why did Roy Moore escape to Australia? Clues remain in the outback wilderness

In the early 1980s, the now scandal-hit would-be US senator was taken in by a deeply religious town where some remember him as a troubled soul

It’s easy to get lost on the vast expanse of land they call Telemon.

Nestled in the foothills of Australia’s central Queensland highlands some 560 miles north-west of the state capital, Brisbane, the sprawling cattle station larger than Manhattan is a maze of wandering dirt roads Google Maps has never heard of.

Change of heart: can we do better for heart patients than a transplant?

Fifty years after the first heart transplant, the operation remains very expensive with mixed outcomes. A new approach focuses on repair instead of replace

In the early hours of 3 December 1967, Prof Christiaan Barnard gazed down into the void and felt a chill ripple through his veins as he considered the historic nature of what he was about to attempt. The gaping chasm lying before him was the empty chest cavity of a 54-year-old former boxer called Louis Washkansky. Barnard had just removed Washkansky’s heart, a bloated organ left ravaged and scarred by repeated coronary attacks, and now he had just minutes to try to save his life by inserting a heart taken from Denise Darvall, a 25-year-old woman left brain dead after being struck by a car that day.

At the time, cardiac transplant surgery was barely a decade old, pioneered by a handful of individuals who had developed a radical method of switching a heart from one body to another – but all previous transplants had been done in dogs. As they worked to stitch the new organ into Washkansky’s body and then shock it into life, Barnard and his team were improvising, guided only by a few dozen animal studies, the suggestions of scientific papers and their own instinct. But at 6.13am, after almost four hours of surgery, Washkansky’s transplanted heart started to stir. As Barnard would write: “Little by little it began to roll with the lovely rhythm of life.”

Sonic attack: why South Korea bombards the North with news, K-pop and good times

All along the demilitarised zone that separates the two countries, the South torments its northern enemy with hidden giant speakers that hurl out anything from propaganda to weather reports at ear-splitting volume

While the world digests North Korea’s declaration that it has joined the club of nuclear states, the usually tranquil border separating the country from its neighbour to the south has again become the setting for a very different form of warfare.

Encouraged by last month’s defection of a North Korean soldier, South Korea attempted to compound Pyongyang’s embarrassment by relaying news of the defection to troops and civilians on the other side of the demilitarised zone (DMZ) – the 4km-wide buffer that has divided the two Koreas since the end of their 1950-53 war.

Five years after the gang-rape and murder of Jyoti Singh, what has changed for women in India?

The Delhi student’s death sparked protest across the country, but campaigners, including Singh’s parents, say not enough has been done to keep women safe

Jyoti Singh stood by the side of the road, wrapped up from the chill of a Delhi winter evening, looking out for the headlights of a bus. It was about 9.30pm and she was on her way home from watching Life of Pi at the cinema in the Citywalk mall with a young male friend, Awindra Pandey.

The date was 16 December 2012. She was 23 years old, a young woman making her way in the world, working nights in an IBM call centre to put herself through medical college to achieve her dream of becoming a physiotherapist. She had less than two weeks left to live.

‘For us, the land is sacred’: on the road with the defenders of the world’s forests
A busload of indigenous leaders have been crossing Europe to highlight their cause before the start of UN climate talks in Bonn

Of the many thousands of participants at the Bonn climate conference which begins on 6 November, there will arguably be none who come with as much hope, courage and anger as the busload of indigenous leaders who have been criss-crossing Europe over the past two weeks, on their way to the former German capital.

The 20 activists on the tour represent forest communities that have been marginalised over centuries but are now increasingly recognised as important actors against climate change through their protection of carbon sinks.

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

The 50-year civil war is over but, in the Cauca Valley, indigenous communities are on frontline of fight against drug gangs, riot police and deforestation

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.

'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.

Remembering women killed fighting for human rights in 2017

To mark International Women Human Rights Defenders’ Day, we pay tribute to some of the women killed this year because of their activism

More than half of the women cited in AWID’s 2017 tribute to female activists were murdered for defending their rights. Among the women killed are those who fought to protect their land from the state and multinational companies, or called out injustices or corruption, or stood up for the rights of lesbian, gay and transexual people.

While thousands of men defend human rights, women face particular challenges for their activism. They are targeted for who they are, as women, not just because they are protesting. In countries that view a woman’s role as being in the home, female human rights defenders are more prone to attack than men because they are seen as breaking social norms.

‘We lost a great leader’: Berta Cáceres still inspires as murder case takes fresh twist | Liz Ford

As friends and followers of the late Honduran activist continue her battle for indigenous land rights, their cause has been boosted by a damning legal report

María Santos Domínguez heard about the death of her good friend Berta Cáceres on the radio. She had just given birth to her youngest daughter, so she wasn’t with Cáceres the week she was murdered.

“It was a double blow because we were very close, we worked together in the communities,” said Santos Domínguez, a coordinator for the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organisations of Honduras (Copinh), the organisation Cáceres co-founded 24 years ago to stop the state selling off the country’s ancestral lands to multinational companies.

UK mining firm in court over claims it mistreated environmental activists

A UK-registered mining company, which is now part of Glencore, is facing claims in a London court that it hired security forces to mistreat environmental activists protesting about a copper mine in Peru.

Two demonstrators died and others were left with serious injuries following the confrontations which lasted for several days during May 2012 on a remote hillside in the Andes, the court has been told.

The demonstration on Tuesday was led by indigenous leader Candido Mezúa, who bore a banner reading “Guardians of the Forest: end the devastation of the forest and the killing of forest people.”

2017 on course to be deadliest on record for land defenders

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.

Martin McGuinness biography divides Irish opinion – as he did in life

Observer and Guardian correspondent Henry McDonald’s take on the late nationalist leader traces his rise from rebel to education minister

The controversial life of the late Martin McGuinness could stand as an emblem of the extraordinary changes in the recent history of the island of Ireland. The path the politician from Derry took, from giving a funeral oration in praise of a republican who had once shot at Arlene Foster’s father, who was a Royal Ulster Constabulary reservist, to sharing power with the DUP leader in the Stormont parliament, is now described in photographs and words in a book by the Observer and Guardian’s long-time Irish affairs correspondent Henry McDonald.

“In this case, for once the cliche term of ‘a journey’ really is apposite, because McGuinness travelled such a long way,” McDonald said this weekend. “To go from IRA commander to deputy first minister, well, you cannot get a clearer message across about how things have altered than that. The book really shows the passage of time. It starts with the black and white grainy shots and goes through to the colour of the contemporary world and to shots of McGuinness with kids while he served as education minister.”

Paul McCartney review – wondrous night of songs, stories and a marriage proposal

NIB Stadium, Perth

Last week, in the lead-up to his tour of Australia and New Zealand, Sir Paul McCartney returned to Subiaco, Perth – where he had opened his most recent Australian tour in 1993 – to host an intimate, rare fan Q&A at the Regal Theatre.

He had spent the week rehearsing at the venue, and on Thursday invited 10 competition winners and their guests to shake his hand, ask him questions, and have him play them an intimate set.

The afternoon Lenny Bruce and I spent cutting out newspaper pin-ups

It’s 1961 and Roger Law, 20-year-old cartoonist, has an unexpected encounter with America’s most foulmouthed, freethinking comedian

In 1961, my friend Peter Cook opened the Establishment nightclub in Soho. It was a dark and labyrinthine place; full of stars and artists, gangsters and rascals. There was comedy on stage, jazz in the basement, and dreamers and drunks everywhere else. You’d get the odd MP in there, too.

He looked like a degenerate matinée idol. Which I suppose he was

Why Jeremy Corbyn rocked an M&S suit on the cover of GQ

Forget Armani, Hugo Boss or even Vetements: the Labour leader made his debut on the front of the glossy men’s mag in a £200 M&S suit – and ticked all the right fashion boxes

Jeremy Corbyn has been a cover star in the making for years. Anyone else with the same savviness for following (setting, even?) the season’s hottest trends would have been snapped up to front a glossy mag aeons ago and countless campaigns would already be in the bag (shot in Juergen Teller’s distinctive overexposed style, naturally).

The Labour leader was an early adopter of the SS16 baseball hat trend, promoted cagoules long before the cool crowd caught on a la Balenciaga, and proudly cycled around north London in a shellsuit months prior to fashion wunkerkind Alessandro Michele putting them on the catwalk last September.

Matt Lucas: ‘I wished I had told my dad I was gay’

The comedian talks about his hair falling out when he was six, his father going to jail, and his brother looking out for him when he was teased for being gay

All my hair fell out when I was six, which was a bit alarming. My parents were very supportive, so my childhood was as happy as it could be, in those circumstances. I always felt loved, and there was a lot of laughter in the house. I have memories of going to bed and being woken up because everyone downstairs was laughing. My parents had a very vibrant social life.

I was closest to my mum when I was growing up. My parents split up when I was 10 and, three years after that, my brother moved in with my dad. So, for a time, it was just me and my mum in the house. Later, when I told her I was gay, she looked for a reason. She asked me: “Did I smother you? Did I make you gay?” This was nearly 20 years ago, when people believed an event could turn you gay. I said no, no, no and not to worry about it. She didn’t smother me at all – she was lovely.

Google Pixel Buds review: Bluetooth earbuds are a missed opportunity

Google enters the headphone market with interesting but flawed earbuds that don’t match Apple’s AirPods – and translation doesn’t live up to the hype

The Google Pixel Buds are a set of wireless neckband-style Bluetooth earbuds that have a few fancy tricks up their sleeve, including the ability to near real-time translation. But are they really that good?

First things first, the Google Pixel Buds are not entirely wireless, unlike Bluetooth earbuds such as the Bragi Dash Pro or Apple’s AirPods. Instead there’s a cable running between the two earbuds, which is a shame, as cables between earbuds are no longer needed, and it frequently gets tugged and caught by clothing restricting the moment of your head.

My husband is always irritable, but says he wouldn’t be if we had sex more
I don’t want sex with a man who makes me feel guilty or ashamed at not wanting him

I am really frustrated with my husband. He is irritable, disengaged and sulky. When I ask what’s wrong, he replies “nothing”, but then later attacks me about how he would be in a much better mood if we had sex more. But I don’t want to have sex with a person who constantly tries to make me feel ashamed/guilty over not wanting him. Would opening up the relationship help?

When anger arises in a relationship and becomes as pervasive as it has in your marriage, it causes such a gulf between the partners that getting back on track – including recovering your erotic connection – can be enormously challenging. I understand your despair, but an open relationship is not the answer. What is required is a frank and respectful expression of true feelings, and a serious attempt by both of you to solve this impasse.

Is owning a dog good for your health?

A new study suggests canine-lovers could be 23% less likely to die from heart disease – or it could just be that healthier people prefer dogs

Dogs really are our best friends, according to a Swedish study that says canine ownership could reduce heart disease. A study of 3.4 million people between the ages of 40 and 80 found that having a dog was associated with a 23% reduction in death from heart disease and a 20% lower risk of dying from any cause over the 12 years of the study. Previous studies have suggested dogs relieve social isolation and depression – both linked to an increased risk of heart disease and early death.
