I segnali che indicano che stai entrando  in menopausa

La perimenopausa è il periodo che precede la menopausa e dura in media tra i 4 e i 5 anni, anche se per alcune donne dura soltanto pochi mesi. Questa fase termina quando sono trascorsi 12 mesi dall’ultima mestruazione: a quel punto la donna è entrata veramente in menopausa. Ma quali sono i segnali che indicano di essere entrate in questa naturale fase della vita? Lo spiega Rossella Nappi, ginecologa dell’Ambulatorio di endocrinologia ginecologica e della menopausa del Policlinico San Matteo di Pavia

Italy's voters issue warning to Europe

Preliminary election results point to hung parliament and repudiation of Brussels as Eurosceptic parties gain support

A majority of Italian voters have supported Eurosceptic candidates in the national election, preliminary results showed, after decades in which Italy has steadfastly championed the European project.

Early results released by the interior ministry on Monday morning, as ballots continued to be counted, pointed to a hung parliament, though there was still a possibility that the centre-right coalition, with about 37% of the vote, could secure a majority once parliamentary seats are allocated.

China told to follow the leader Xi Jinping in thought, word and deed

The Chinese premier, Li Keqiang, has kicked off a potentially momentous political summit in Beijing by instructing Communist party officials to “resolutely uphold” the primacy of president Xi Jinping and follow their sovereign in thought, word and deed.

Speaking at the opening of the fortnight-long national people’s congress – at which Xi looks set to establish himself as ruler for life – Li urged his country’s political elite to fall in line behind a leader now considered China’s most dominant since Mao.

The long-awaited report by the digital, culture, media and sport select committee is a potential death knell for Team Sky. It calls into question exactly how they became one of the most successful outfits in British sporting history and draws a number of damaging conclusions.

First aid delivery in weeks reaches eastern Ghouta, but Syrian military block loading of vital medical supplies

An aid convoy has entered the besieged, rebel-held Syrian enclave in eastern Ghouta, two weeks into a renewed regime offensive that has killed more than 700 civilians.

Despite being allowed to deliver food for about 27,000 of the 400,000 people trapped in the enclave, humanitarian officials said the Syrian military had refused to allow the loading of critically needed medical aid.

Homeless charity helped target rough sleepers to deport

St Mungo’s cooperated with Home Office patrols looking for migrant rough sleepers deemed to be in UK illegally

A leading homelessness charity has worked with Home Office patrols as they go out on the streets in search of rough sleepers deemed to be in the UK illegally to arrest and deport, the Guardian has learned.

St Mungo’s is one of the largest providers of homelessness outreach services in the UK, with 17 outreach teams across the south and south-west. On its website it says it is “here for every step of the journey away from homelessness” and says its outreach teams work to “gradually build up trusting relationships” with people who are sleeping rough.

Facebook asks users: should we allow men to ask children for sexual images?

Social network admits survey asking whether it should permit adults to ask 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures was a mistake

Facebook has admitted it was a “mistake” to ask users whether paedophiles requesting sexual pictures from children should be allowed on its website.

On Sunday, the social network ran a survey for some users asking how they thought the company should handle grooming behaviour. “There are a wide range of topics and behaviours that appear on Facebook,” one question began. “In thinking about an ideal world where you could set Facebook’s policies, how would you handle the following: a private message in which an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures.”

Despite warnings from a building inspector that people would not be able to tell where the door ends and the wall begins, at least three Apple employees walked or ran into the ultra-transparent glass hard enough to require emergency medical treatment during the first month of occupation, according to recordings of 911 calls obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Shakespeare himself may have annotated 'Hamlet' book, claims researcher

Notes made on a 16th-century manuscript, thought to have been an inspiration for the play, could have been the Bard’s own, says John Casson

Annotations in the margins of a 16th-century text that is believed to have been one of the sources for Hamlet could have been made by Shakespeare himself, according to an independent researcher.

John Casson was looking through the British Library’s copy of François de Belleforest’s Histoires Tragiques, a 1576 French text thought to have been one of the sources for Shakespeare’s tragedy: it features the story of how a Danish prince, Amleth, avenges his father’s murder by his uncle, the latter going on to marry his mother, Geruthe.

‘Thou shalt not always beat us at chess’: an alternative 10 commandments for robots

The notion of a robotic future is terrifying to many humans. However, the Right Rev Steven Croft has made efforts to fix this by writing a set of new commandments for robots.

Croft’s commandments follow his appointment as a member of a House of Lords select committee on artificial intelligence. They are essentially Asimov’s laws of robotics rewritten to reflect a present where artificial intelligence already plays an important part in many of our day to day interactions.

Their forefathers were enslaved. Now, 400 years later, their children will be landowners

Rare victory for Brazilian poor, as record Amazon land tract is handed over to descendants of escaped enslaved people

It was a modest ceremony for such a significant victory: it is not every day that the descendants of enslaved people are given the title to their land. But there was no doubt of its importance at a time when the protection of Brazil’s traditional rural communities is threatened by a conservative government in league with powerful agribusiness interests.

This weekend, Simão Jatene, the governor of Pará state, signed a document giving land titles for more than 220,000 hectares of Amazon forest to an isolated community populated by descendants of enslaved people who escaped centuries ago.

‘I felt a nausea of fury’ – how I faced the cruelty of Britain's immigration system

When Nesrine Malik was finally granted British citizenship her relief was dulled by exhaustion after years of struggle against a Home Office bent on reducing immigration to the illusory ‘tens of thousands’

I first landed in England in September 2004. I took the underground from Heathrow and sat in the carriage with my luggage, face plastered to the window, as the train made its way through the late summer greenery of west London. Culture shock blended with a counterintuitive sense of ease and familiarity with a country – in fact, a whole hemisphere – that I had never visited. I had lived my entire life in Sudan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and had come to the UK to study for a postgraduate degree at the University of London. Over the next weeks, I found the city and its people both bewilderingly cool and enthusiastically welcoming. That duality would go on to be the central theme of my life in the UK – confusing impenetrability accompanied by a yielding accommodation.

I settled in quickly, squatting in a relative’s spare bedroom until I could make arrangements. But I had severely underestimated the expense of London and, already impoverished by the high overseas student tuition fees, I began working while I was studying, my student visa allowing for 20 hours a week. I temped in offices across London, using an A–Z to find my way around. My topography of London is still anchored in the locations of those anonymous office blocks across the city. At the end of my course I extended my student visa in order to finish my dissertation and meanwhile was offered a contract as a research assistant at an investment bank where I had been temping. I went into the interview with precisely £15 to my name. Had the position not paid by the end of the week, I would not have been able to get through the first month.

Are you sitting comfortably: the myth of good posture
While more than 2.5m people in the UK suffer with back pain, there is little evidence linking the condition with slouching or bad posture

Do you slouch over your computer screen? Stand with your hips tilted forward and your stomach sitting out? Do people tell you to “sit up straight or you’ll get backache?” More than 2.5 million people in the UK have back pain each day – costing £22bn annually – so should we all be sitting up a little straighter?

“If you ask most people how to prevent back pain they will say: ‘Sit up straight and mind my back,’ because our parents have instilled this in us,” says Kieran O’ Sullivan, senior lecturer at the University of Limerick and lead physiotherapist at the sports spine centre in Aspetar hospital, Qatar. We are, says O’Sullivan, almost paranoid about posture. Yet the evidence linking posture and backache is surprisingly insubstantial.

Radicalism lite: eight things we learned from the Oscars 2018

The Shape of Water’s win was one for the outsiders and trans film-makers made a breakthrough, but this year’s air of protest stopped short of tearing down the barricades

The Oscars needed a crisis-free year after the La La Land/Moonlight farrago, and by and large it got one. All the talking points were basically manufactured, from the Time’s Up montage to the Tiffany Haddish/Maya Rudolph double act. (Even Jimmy Kimmel’s wannabe viral trip to the cinema over the road was a reheat of the meet-the-people stunt he’d tried last time.) To make everything extra-clear to the presenters (who included Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, the unwitting messer-uppers last year), each envelope had its category printed in giant shiny letters on the back. The dearth of surprise extended to the actual awards, with all the biggies going the way we thought they would: the Oldman/McDormand combo looking nailed on back in January, while Guillermo del Toro had convincingly stomped all contenders by the time he won the Directors Guild of America award. There was some doubt over best picture but after it became clear (thanks, Hollywood Reporter’s Brutally Honest Voters) that Three Billboards was not as resonant in the US as elsewhere, The Shape of Water became the likely winner. So: no alarms, no surprises.

The Shape of Water's Oscars win is the triumph of a real artist and immersive cinema | Peter Bradshaw

Guillermo del Toro has created a richly sensual and dreamlike film that, in the end, seduced the Academy without being too threatening

Related: Oscars winners 2018: the full list

At the end of a somewhat predictable evening, we were all longing for Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway to work their anarchic magic, and start handing out the awards to the films that weren’t in the envelope. Perhaps for the sheer devilment, they could have given something to, say, Kathryn Bigelow’s powerful race drama Detroit, a highly plausible Oscar-worthy film, which the Academy hive mind mysteriously decided was worth precisely zilch and became utterly forgotten about. In the end, many deserving films got what they deserved, others didn’t, the internal economy of awards season dictating, as it so often does, that the rich become richer. And it was hardly obvious that this was the year of radical change in Hollywood’s sexual politics. As my colleague Benjamin Lee notes in his blog this year’s Academy Awards in fact garnered the fewest female winners for six years.

Yes, the argument goes, more than half of “initial coin offerings” to date have already failed, and most of the 1,500-plus cryptocurrencies also will fail, but blockchain will nonetheless revolutionise finance and human interactions generally.

In reality, blockchain is one of the most overhyped technologies ever. For starters, blockchains are less efficient than existing databases. When someone says they are running something on a blockchain, what they usually mean is that they are running one instance of a software application that is replicated across many other devices.

If Hadiza Bawa-Garba worked in the US she would still be a doctor

In the individualistic US medical errors are blamed on systems but in the collectivist NHS individuals are blamed for errors

  • Do you work for the NHS? Please take our survey and tell us about your job. It should only take 10 minutes

When I moved to Philadelphia for training in radiology, three things struck me about the US – the numerous types of bagels, defensive medicine, and the amount of support for trainee doctors. American medicine, though famously litigious, protects its residents (trainees), who work as hard as their British counterparts, and often make critical decisions, sometimes unsupervised, but rarely unsupported.

I’ve trained in both systems, as a surgical senior house officer in Britain and a radiology resident in the US, and the difference between the two systems for trainees is stark. In the US residents must gradually earn their independence; in Britain independence isn’t earned but assumed. I was on call overnight, unsupervised in a busy A&E in London 18 months after qualifying from medical school, with no consultant or registrar on site. This would be unthinkable in the US. I never complained because I enjoyed the independence and felt supported by the nurses. In hindsight, I feel goosebumps knowing that I was only one catastrophic error from facing the same fate as Hadiza Bawa-Garba, the paediatric registrar convicted for manslaughter for missing sepsis.

Germany’s coalition deal safeguards the Merkel/Macron vision of Europe | Anne McElvoy

Back for a fourth term, the German chancellor faces tensions at home – but her role as head of the EU’s most successful economy is unchallenged

Angela Merkel’s new coalition government is testament to her skill as the great survivor, and to the unwisdom of underestimating her ability to outmanoeuvre opponents. Alliances of Germany’s two main parties are dubbed “elephant coalitions”. The one agreed this morning lumbers into life on very different terms from the last GroKo (grand coalition). “Two tired elephants, dancing for the last time,” was the verdict of one speaker at the recent special conference of the Social Democratic party (SPD), calling for an end to deals with “the Merkelator” and her Christian Democrats.

In the end, she prevailed by a decent margin. There was a two-thirds majority among SPD members for remaining in the coalition, while a third backed a youth-led campaign to shake up left-of-centre politics.

Getting pregnant isn’t easy. Young people should at least be taught this | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett
Sex education shouldn’t be about scaremongering, but it must acknowledge that many couples have problems conceiving

How easy is it to get pregnant? Judging by the scaremongering sex education I received, you’d think all it took was the touch of the tip, the slip of a condom or the missing of a pill and – bam! – you’re a pregnant teenager and your life as you know it is over.

But now a coalition of leading doctors, fertility experts and campaigners – under the umbrella of the Fertility Education Initiative (FEI) – has told the government that the emphasis must shift. In the new compulsory sex education classes, girls (and presumably boys) should be taught how and when to conceive. One in seven couples struggles with fertility, and it is looking as though the traditional emphasis on safe sex at the expense of all else – a response to what was an appalling teenage pregnancy record in the UK – has unsurprisingly backfired. Young women (and, again, I assume the men to whom a large proportion of them are coupled) are assuming that they can conceive as soon as they want to.

It's falling in popularity but being married is brilliant – try it

The number of opposite sex couples tying the knot is 50% lower than it was in 1940 and the average age of a newlywed has risen to 36

I stand before you as an emissary for a cool and obscure minority. You see, I am one of a dying breed. I am married. Statistically, nobody else in the country is married. Not even my wife.

Marriage between opposite-sex couples has fallen to an all-time low. The Office for National Statistics has revealed that just 239,020 marriages took place in 2015, almost half the number that took place in 1940, and people are in uproar about it. “Britain already languishes in shame at the bottom of the developed world league table for family stability,” said a spokesperson from the Marriage Foundation, which is apparently a thing, on hearing the news.

Lionel Messi the difference but Barcelona's teamwork key to beating Atlético | Sid Lowe

A Lionel Messi free-kick won the match for Barcelona but their teamwork and sacrifice is what saw them past Atlético Madrid

Diego Simeone was sitting under the main stand at Europe’s largest stadium but for a moment, he was back in a playground 10,000km away. There two kids stand a few metres apart and edge towards each other, one step at a time, in turn, heel to toe, “bread” and “cheese” accompanying every tiny advance. Eventually one treads on the other – the winner now and, let’s face it, the winner in the game too.

“Pan.”

Virat Kohli’s passion for Test cricket could be saviour of five-day game | Rob Smyth
India’s captain is the best chance we have of countering the global dominance of T20s and one-day internationals

Virat Kohli knows about pressure. He is Sachin Tendulkar for the Twitter generation, with 23.3 million people hanging on his every emoji. When he bats, a country of 1.3 billion fidgets with vicarious need. Most of us can barely cope with trying to make ourselves happy but Kohli is in a blissful state where pressure is a drug that stimulates all kinds of achievement. He averages more than 50 in all three forms of cricket, an unprecedented record, and has turned the extraordinary into the everyday.

He probably will not mind, then, if we add a bit more pressure. Virat, you may be the only person who can save Test cricket.

Davide Astori death: prosecutor investigates manslaughter possibility
  • Antonio De Nicolo: ‘We have opened criminal proceedings’
  • 31-year-old Fiorentina captain was found dead on Sunday morning

An investigation has been opened into the possibility that Fiorentina captain Davide Astori was the victim of manslaughter, after he was found dead at the team’s hotel in Udine on Sunday morning. The player’s autopsy has been scheduled for Tuesday, and the city’s lead prosecutor, Antonio De Nicolo, made it plain that the cause of death had not yet been ascertained.

TUEs may have been the tip of an iceberg at Team Sky | William Fotheringham

Parliamentary inquiry’s conclusions are depressing but in the long term they should, in this atmosphere, lead to change

The last 20 years in cycling have shown that it is bodies outside the sport that make the biggest strides in anti-doping, exposing the most carefully hidden practices, creating the greatest media impact, and producing the most significant long-term outcomes.

I was reminded of that only recently, when a trip to France included an overnight stay in Rue du Dronckaert, Neuville en Ferrain, where customs officers seized the Festina team’s drugs, which led to the exposure of systematic doping at the highest level of the sport.

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

Chris Hughton deserves plaudits, Sam Allardyce will not win Everton fans’ affections and Spurs look ready for Juventus

There is something striking about watching the defending champions cede their title to their successors, and this was a particularly mournful way to go about it. The last time a title-winning Chelsea team visited the side that was destined to succeed them they lost 2-1 to Leicester in December 2015 and promptly sacked their manager. This display is unlikely to accelerate Antonio Conte’s apparently inevitable summer departure, but a performance so stripped of ambition and attacking quality certainly reflected poorly on him. “My tactic was: don’t concede space between the lines,” he said. “If you concede space at Manchester City you risk losing with many goals down.” Aggressively stripping the team of the personnel and instructions necessary to effectively attack hardly affected Chelsea’s chances of avoiding defeat, it simply limited their losing margin. What Conte failed to see is that for a team of Chelsea’s recent history, ambition and resources an emphatic thrashing is not the only form of humiliation. Simon Burnton

Peter Stöger puts stamp on Dortmund to leave board with decision to make | Andy Brassell

The Austrian could not be doing more to remain as manager, with his side now looking as if they have put in a shift

On other weekends, it would have been a cause for glumness. Yet even in falling a place below bitter rivals Schalke, from second to third, it felt as if it had been a fairly successful day for Borussia Dortmund. They emerged from Saturday evening’s Topspiel at RB Leipzig not only with a point – and having maintained a three-point lead over their hosts in the race for Champions League qualification – but with the satisfying feeling of having put in a shift.

They can be few things that their coach, Peter Stöger, cherishes as much as this. Many may still feel he was fortunate to get this post after his sacking by the bottom club , Cologne, but he has not hesitated to put his stamp on the side. Having criticised their lack of combativeness in recent matches – and particularly after the lucky draw at Atalanta that took BVB through to Thursday’s Europa League last-16 tie against Salzburg – this performance was exactly what Stöger was after.

David Warner, Quinton de Kock and why another crossed line hurts cricket | Adam Collins

Australia should have been reflecting on an impressive win in South Africa but once again all the talk is of an unsavoury spat between players

Here we go again. A better than decent Test Match concluded on Monday in Durban but will never stand a chance of capturing the attention it deserves. Events of the previous afternoon made sure of that. Press conferences came and went where the participants argued their corner in the usual way. Match officials will try to unpick it all from narrators unlikely to give an inch. Will anything change? Almost certainly not.

That David Warner was front and centre was all the spice the tale required. Of course he has form, most of it some years ago, but he’ll forever be known as a crosser of the line. Oh, that bloody line. The one the Australians routinely talk about headbutting (their chosen word) but not stepping over. This time, there is no disputing that it has been breached.

Arsenal's confidence is shattered, admits Laurent Koscielny
  • Arsenal captain admits belief will not return swiftly
  • Players and Arsène Wenger share responsibility, he says

Laurent Koscielny has laid bare the crisis of confidence at Arsenal and admitted the players’ self-belief will not return swiftly after Brighton inflicted the team’s fourth defeat in the space of 11 days.

“We know we are in a bad situation, a bad period,” Arsenal’s captain said. “We tried but nothing is with us. We tried to fight and play football but you could see the confidence is very down. We miss a lot of things during the game but we need to push more again and again. The confidence will be back slowly. We know we need to win to have a little bit more confidence in us. We lost a little bit of our quality but we need to stay united.”

‘Why I told my mother not to read my book’ – memoirs of a former wild girl

Claire Dederer has written what is surely one of the most excruciatingly frank memoirs ever – raw, revealing and explicit

In the days before I’m due to speak to the writer Claire Dederer, the Freudian in me (admittedly quite a diminutive figure) begins to wonder if she isn’t subconsciously trying to wriggle out of our conversation. First, there’s trouble with her broadband connection, which means Skype is out of the question (she lives on an island just off Seattle). Then I’m told that thanks to a terrible accident involving a pavement and her face, I’ll have to wait a few days while mobility is restored to her stitched lip. Even when I do finally hear her (slightly subdued) voice down the line, part of me is still convinced she’s about to hang up. After all, writers do sometimes suffer from the equivalent of buyer’s remorse – and she would have more reason than most for doing so, being the author of what is surely one of the most excruciatingly frank memoirs ever to make it to hard covers.

When she first began thinking about this memoir – its somewhat vague title, Love and Trouble: Memoirs of a Former Wild Girl, barely hints at the places it takes you – Dederer was 44 years old, and in possession of a life that was, by any standards, blessed. On her island, a democratic stronghold that is reachable only by ferry, she was living in her very pretty house (it has a badminton court and looks out over woodland) with her husband and two children; a journalist, she was also enjoying a big success with her first book, the best-selling Poser: A Mother’s Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses (as Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love and a major Dederer fan, notes: “It is very difficult to find books about yoga that aren’t incredibly annoying.”)

From Kurt Cobain to Adele: early demos from the biggest names in music

A pre-fame recording from Amy Winehouse was recently unearthed, defying her estate, and it’s one of many resurfaced demos giving early insight into the talents of major stars

Most musicians hate fans to hear their nascent demos, those early trial balloons punctured by bum notes and bad decisions. Unfortunately, the biggest stars often don’t have a choice in the matter – especially if they happen to be dead. Such a fate befell Amy Winehouse when, last week, one of her producers took it upon himself to release an early demo he had of the singer, defying the artist’s estate, which had destroyed the initial, inferior work they possessed.

From blank pages to 13,000 word sentences: a brief history of British avant garde writing

In the 1960s, writers such as BJ Johnson, Ann Quin and Bob Cobbing were ripping up the rules of fiction, fighting the establishment - and each other. What, if anything, of their legacy lives on?

Of all the curious artefacts gathering dust in the BBC’s Sound Archive, one of the very weirdest dates from an evening in 1969. John Peel’s guest on his late-night radio show is the sound poet Bob Cobbing. Stationed alongside is the Scottish monologist Ivor Cutler. Urged on by his captivated host, Cobbing plays the tape of a recording made with his French collaborator François Dufrêne. What follows is a kind of aural collage from the very edge of language: repetitive pantings, groans, sighs, whispers and primal gibberish. After it judders to a halt, Peel turns to the somewhat nonplussed Cutler to inquire: has he ever tried anything similar? “You mean making a noise?” Cutler sceptically lobs back.

As the spectacle of Cobbing in full shamanistic flow on a Radio 1 pop show confirms, the literary 1960s was an era in which, for the first time in nearly 40 years, the avant garde veered dangerously close to the mainstream. It was an age in which (sometimes rather to their surprise) experimental writers found themselves contracted to major commercial publishers, in which novels could cheerfully be issued in random fragments under the cover of a cardboard box (BS Johnson’s The Unfortunates), and ambitious debutants embark on their careers with the assumption that, as Eva Figes once put it: “I and a few other writers with similar ideas could change the face of English fiction.”

'A chaos of colour': new play made for one of Manchester's last sari shops

Rani Moorthy’s Handlooms takes place in a traditional clothes store – and its sister shop in Leicester – to explore changing experiences of British Asians

When Alankar House of Sarees first opened on what is now Manchester’s Curry Mile in 1977, its only neighbours were a grocer’s and the Indian-Pakistani restaurant Sanam. As the years went by the shop was joined by scores of rivals, competing for custom from the area’s growing south Asian community. Forty years later, as many young British Asians are turning away from the sari as an everyday form of dress, the business is one of the area’s few surviving traditional sari shops.

Sitting in the store, surrounded by piles of intricately embroidered fabrics, 34-year-old Poonam Modha says she had never planned to dedicate her life to the family business. She is the granddaughter of Gokuldas Modha, who founded the shop after arriving in Britain from Tanzania. “When I was growing up my mum and dad used to bring me to work during the holidays when all I wanted to do was play,” she says. “But as I grew up and got into my late teens I fell in love with the clothes.”

House of Cards's Spacey-less final season trailer: Netflix plays it safe

In a post-Frank Underwood world, Claire is in power but the show still looks as if it’s going to suffer from its biggest flaw: the lack of a worthy opponent

Two men stalk through through the halls of the White House with serious intent. A West Wing office bustles with activity that borders on panic. Another corridor, more action. A woman briskly issues commands into her phone. All is movement. And then, as we enter the Oval Office, serenity. The president of the United States swings around to meet us head-on. “Hoo boy!” she yells. “Were you worried I’d still be Kevin Spacey? Yeesh! I mean, Kevin Spacey, huh? Yuck-a-doodle-doo! Am I right, guys?”

David Byrne: ‘I’m able to talk in a social group now – not retreat into a corner’

At 65, the phenomenally creative David Byrne is still rock’s renaissance man. As he launches his first solo album in 14 years, he reveals why he’s started collecting reasons to be cheerful

The first time David Byrne came to the Roundhouse in Camden was in 1977, when his band, Talking Heads, supported the Ramones. Both bands were deluged with phlegm, because that’s what punks thought they were meant to do then. Forty-one years later, the man, the venue and the fans have all changed. Tonight, Byrne is treating a small, respectful audience in the Roundhouse’s Sackler Space to a PowerPoint lecture called “Reasons to be Cheerful”. Nobody spits.

Byrne came up with the idea two years ago. Obama was on his way out, Trump was on his way up, and Byrne wanted to alleviate the gloom by collating stories of positive change from around the world – not grand schemes but small, pragmatic innovations that work. Looking like a dapper academic with his sharp grey suit and shock of white hair, the 65-year-old clicks through his slides: carbon-neutral urban planning in Sweden, high-speed bus lanes in South America, an anti-corruption game show in Africa. To quote one of his famous lyrics, this ain’t no disco, but nor is it out of character. For most of his life, Byrne has been asking if things can be done differently.

Ethical fashion is order of the day for Stella McCartney in Paris

Designer has been doing ethical fashion since 2001 – finally the rest of the world is catching up


The invitation for Stella McCartney’s fashion show in Paris came in a glossy pouch with “I am 100% compostable (and so are you!)” printed on it. Inside was a freebie with purpose: a pair of yellow socks made from 85% upcycled yarn using no water, chemicals, dyes or pesticides.

In a socially conscious climate in which more and more fashion brands are pledging their commitment to sustainability, such details matter. But McCartney has been exploring ethical fashion since she set up in 2001, when it seemed like an eccentricity – or even a nuisance – to many in the wider industry.

How can I boost my confidence at work?

Sharmadean Reid on how to avoid Imposter Syndrome during a big meeting or presentation

Everyone gets nervous at times. Even when I’m feeling super-chilled about a big meeting or a speaking gig, I always get butterflies just before I go on. But after doing so many of these nerve-racking events, I’ve picked up a few confidence-boosting techniques.

First, I think of what has almost become my life mantra: know your shit. When we think about why women have such big barriers to entry in the workplace (and, well, in life), confidence is always listed as the No 1 reason. But I believe that women are perfectly capable of thinking highly of themselves; it’s just that they think they don’t know enough. This undermines their self-worth, and in turn erodes their confidence.

The local’s guide to Naples’ art scene: 10 top tips

This exuberant city revered for its food, culture and history is now forging a reputation as one of Europe’s most exciting hubs for contemporary art

All eyes are on Naples as British art dealer Thomas Dane opens his new gallery in a beautifully restored 19th-century palazzo, showing works by artists such as Steve McQueen, Bruce Connor and Catherine Opie. It’s a move that adds gravitas to the whispers that Naples is the burgeoning city of contemporary art in Europe. In fact, despite its much-beleaguered reputation as an unruly land where Camorra feuds rage and rubbish heaps swell, Naples has always been a city of art.

Has dopamine got us hooked on tech?

Silicon Valley is keen to exploit the brain chemical credited with keeping us tapping on apps and social media

In an unprecedented attack of candour, Sean Parker, the 38-year-old founding president of Facebook, recently admitted that the social network was founded not to unite us, but to distract us. “The thought process was: ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?’” he said at an event in Philadelphia in November. To achieve this goal, Facebook’s architects exploited a “vulnerability in human psychology”, explained Parker, who resigned from the company in 2005. Whenever someone likes or comments on a post or photograph, he said, “we… give you a little dopamine hit”. Facebook is an empire of empires, then, built upon a molecule.

Dopamine, discovered in 1957, is one of 20 or so major neurotransmitters, a fleet of chemicals that, like bicycle couriers weaving through traffic, carry urgent messages between neurons, nerves and other cells in the body. These neurotransmitters ensure our hearts keep beating, our lungs keep breathing and, in dopamine’s case, that we know to get a glass of water when we feel thirsty, or attempt to procreate so that our genes may survive our death.

Why is the world at war?

Syria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Yemen, Afghanistan, Ukraine – the globe is scarred by violence

We live in a world of trouble. Conflicts today may be much less lethal than those that scarred the last century, but this brings little comfort. We remain deeply anxious. We can blame terrorism and the fear it inspires despite the statistically unimportant number of casualties it inflicts, or the contemporary media and the breathless cycle of “breaking news”, but the truth remains that the wars that seem to inspire the fanatics or have produced so many headlines in recent years prompt deep anxiety. One reason is that these wars appear to have no end in sight.

To explain these conflicts we reach for easy binary schema – Islam v the west; haves against have-nots; nations that “play by the rules” of the international system against “rogues”. We also look to grand geopolitical theories – the end of the Westphalian system, the west faced by “the rise of the rest” – or even just attribute the violence to “geography”. None of these explanations seems to adequately allay our concerns.

Finally, they slit the housewife’s throat, condemning her to the mortuary of Beijing’s Number Six People’s Hospital where, days later, her daughter found her corpse as it was carted off for cremation.

How populist uprisings could bring down liberal democracy | Yascha Mounk

Authoritarians are on the rise, and electorates are seduced by extremes. To fight back, mainstream politicians need to grasp the causes of popular discontent and rebuild democracy’s moral foundations

There are long decades in which history seems to slow to a crawl. Elections are won and lost, laws adopted and repealed, new stars born and legends carried to their graves. But for all the ordinary business of time passing, the lodestars of culture, society and politics remain the same.

Then there are those short years in which everything changes all at once. Political newcomers storm the stage. Voters clamour for policies that were unthinkable until yesterday. Social tensions that had long simmered under the surface erupt into terrifying explosions. A system of government that had seemed immutable looks as though it might come apart.

We must honour lost land defenders by fighting the system which killed them

Two more defenders in Latin America have lost their lives challenging their country’s economic growth model which prizes profit at all cost

As the Guardian and Global Witness revealed that almost four environmental defenders were murdered every week in 2017, War on Want learned of two more killings through our Latin American partner organisations.
