PSDB vai mover ação para reverter emenda que eleva teto do funcionalismo em SP
O PSDB irá recorrer à Justiça para tentar reverter a aplicação da PEC (Proposta de Emenda Constitucional) que aumenta o teto do funcionalismo público em São Paulo. O projeto foi aprovado na terça (5) em segundo turno pela Alesp (Assembleia Legislativa de São Paulo) e, por não precisar de sanção do governador, passará a valer assim que for publicada e Diário Oficial.

O partido estuda qual será sua estratégia judicial. É possível que proponha uma ação direta de inconstitucionalidade ?nesse caso, a ação partiria do diretório nacional.

Tucanos como o presidente estadual da legenda, Pedro Tobias, e o presidente da Assembleia, Cauê Macris, fizeram forte oposição à aprovação da PEC, consensual no Legislativo. O ex-líder da bancada do PSDB, Roberto Massafera, assinou documento pedindo a votação da emenda em dezembro do ano passado ?completando, assim, o apoio dos 21 partidos na Casa, exigido para que ele fosse a plenário.

O ex-ministro da Fazenda Henrique Meirelles (MDB) afirmou nesta quarta-feira (6) que a Caixa Econômica Federal está sendo preparada para iniciar um processo de abertura de capital e venda de parte da empresa para a participação privada, modelo que também defende para a Petrobras e o Banco do Brasil.

Alexander Nix blames 'global liberal media' for Cambridge Analytica collapse – live

Former CEO of Cambridge Analytica, at centre of Facebook data-mining scandal, appears before Commons fake news inquiry

Meanwhile, the Guardian’s Media editor Jim Waterson has been digging on Dominic Cummings’ plans to troll parliament over his refusal to appear in front of this committee. Waterson writes:

A source very close to Cummings told the Guardian the political strategist intends to voluntarily attend parliament in order to watch MPs debate his refusal to attend parliament.

“He plans to unveil a banner from the public gallery reading ‘where the fuck is our £350m for the NHS’ so that he can hijack the BBC 6 [O’Clock News] for Vote Leave’s core message,” the source claimed.

Christian Matheson asks who owns the various arms of SCL, and Nix refuses to answer.

UN accuses Saudi Arabia of using anti-terror laws to justify torture

Brexit will make Britons less safe unless EU agrees to maintain security cooperation, says Davis - Politics live

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn at PMQs and David Davis’s Brexit speech

Here are the main points from David Davis’s speech and Q&A.

Well, the whole point of security policy is to make citizens of both our country and the 27 other member states safer. So clearly if we don’t have a security policy, they will less safe now than they otherwise would be. The aim, remember, is to save lives, to maintain peace, to maintain security.

The first duty of government is to keep its citizens safe.

And it’s in the pursuit of that safety that Britain made an unconditional offer to the European Union.

[The white paper] will tackle, once and for all, this heavily propagated myth that the UK doesn’t know what it wants.

By building on the prime minister’s speeches, our existing White Papers, our 17 summer papers and countless presentations made directly to the EU about the partnership we want.

My general response to this is, in debates in Whitehall between fast and slow, I normally vote for fast. That’s probably a given.

But what [Theresa May] said today is exactly right; the white paper will be published when it’s ready, it’s up to quality, and it’s exactly what we need to say in the public domain.

The detail of this is being discussed at the moment. It has been through one cabinet committee, it is going to another one, and it would be improper of me to pre-empt the negotiation there. But I suspect it will be fairly decisive.

I think the prime minister has already made public the fact that we expect to put a time limit on the backstop proposal.

Contingency planning always looks a bit bleak, particularly because we don’t intend to arrive at that contingency.

This is from HuffPost’s Owen Bennett.

Voters oust California judge in Brock Turner sexual assault case

Judge is first to be recalled by US voters since 1977 after ex-student given just six months in prison

The California judge in the Stanford sexual assault case has been recalled from office by local voters, an extremely rare outcome in the US court system and a major victory for activists who waged a two-year campaign against the official.

Turner, whose name became synonymous with campus sexual assault across America, had been convicted of three felonies for assaulting an unconscious woman outside of a fraternity party on the elite campus in northern California.

Betty Blue’s Béatrice Dalle: ‘I love Christ because he invented bondage’

Never afraid of controversy, the French actor talks about her love affair with Rupert Everett and all things English, her passion for punk – and why Jesus is sexy

Can it really be true, I ask Béatrice Dalle, that you seduced the English actor Rupert Everett? “Bah ouais,” she replies as we chat in a cafe near her apartment in Paris’s third arrondissement. “Rupert is gay, but I am ...” she pauses for effect… “Béatrice Dalle. I’ve never thought I’m beautiful, but I have a power of attraction.”

Gap-toothed, black-clad, red-lipped, brown-eyed, a tattoo of a cross on her left wrist and crucifixes dangling above her cleavage, she has something, all right. The woman whom Everett described once as “Joan of Arc – the suicide-bomber version” throws back her head and unleashes the first of the interview’s many beguilingly dirty laughs. If cackling were an Olympic sport, she would win gold for France.

Kate Spade’s designs conveyed happiness and sunshine. How sad to learn her life was quite different | Hadley Freeman

The designer understood what women want – which is why her death has deeply affected so many

Lots of people on Twitter were really upset by Kate Spade’s death. Can you tell me more about her?
David, by email

Suicide is always horrific, but the Kate Spade brand is predicated on happiness, sunshine, bright colours, gentility, sweetness. As the actor Mindy Kaling tweeted on Tuesday: “You couldn’t walk into her boutiques and not smile.” Spade and her husband, Andy, repeatedly claimed in their interviews, before they sold her eponymous label just over a decade ago, that the brand was an extension of Spade’s personality, all cheerfulness and ease. Certainly, Spade projected this in interviews and photos, where she played a smart double game of coming across like a cheerful 50s fantasy and an astute, modern businesswoman. The sudden glimpse into the blackness that lay behind all that, and the realisation of how hard Spade must have worked to keep it hidden for the sake of her brand – coming across as happy and dynamic when often she must have felt otherwise – was shocking and heartbreaking.

The 16 most anticipated games of E3 2018

The Last of Us getting nasty, Fallout 76 going back to armageddon and Pokemon Let’s Go dropping a nostalgia bomb are some of this year’s hottest prospects

Meet the people who still use Myspace: 'It's given me so much joy'

Once it was the biggest social network; now it’s a ghost town. But for a handful of hardcore users, Myspace remains essential

Almost every day, Kenneth Scalir takes a trip to the library or a cafe near his home in Sherman Oaks, California, to spend about an hour on his favourite site: Myspace.

Scalir, 48, is one of a dwindling group of people still committed to what was once the most popular social networking platform in the world, with more than 100 million users at its peak. While most people have long abandoned Myspace in favour of Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat, Scalir roams the digital graveyard searching for signs of life.

'Impossible-to-cheat' emissions tests show almost all new diesels still dirty

Other new research shows diesel vehicles cause 88% of the £6bn annual damage to people’s health from car and van exhaust in the UK

Emissions tests that are impossible for carmakers to cheat show that almost all diesel car models launched in Europe since the “dieselgate” scandal remain highly polluting.

The test uses a beam of light to analyse the exhaust plume of a car as it passes and automatic number plate recognition to link the measurement to a specific model. More than 370,000 such measurements taken in the UK, France and other countries have been compiled into new rating system called The Real Urban Emissions Initiative (True) and made available to the public on Wednesday.

Smoked on the water: the eel trader reviving an old Amsterdam tradition

In the Dutch capital, one man is rolling back the years – and his slippery business is booming. Words: Kees van Unen. Pictures: Julie Hrudova

“Eeeeelll, freshly smoked eeeeelll!” These words are once again echoing along the canals of Amsterdam. Half a century after the city’s last parlevinker – or boat-based travelling salesman – dropped anchor, Bas Oosterbaan is reviving the practice.

Early every morning, the 57-year-old skewers a dozen slippery specimens and raises them above the fire to let the smoke do its work. Later he casts off and sets course along central Amsterdam’s canals in search of customers.

Top 10 working-class heroes in books

From an African Chartist to a Hamburg insurrectionist and a defiant suffragette, a historian chooses inspiring stories too often untold

“A working-class hero is something to be,” sang John Lennon. The heroes of history and fiction, however, are typically middle class. Our modern novelists like their protagonists to be sexually transgressive, personally conflicted and comfortably bourgeois. For historians, “the masses” often remain anonymous and impersonal.

The point about workers, however, is that they are not just poor, but necessarily creative and networked. The wage worker navigates a complex, integrated labour market in which the balance of power is set against them. There is something intrinsically heroic about this way of life.

When illiberal forces win, the answer is more – not less – democracy | Cas Mudde

The rise of illiberal democracy is one of the big challenges facing us. here’s how to tackle it

In a recent Washington Post op-ed, Yoav Fromer argues that the Middle East does not have too little democracy, but too much. His argument is that illiberal democrats like Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Benjamin Netanyahu are the consequence of unbridled democracy.

With regard to this particular region, the Middle East, this has become a popular position among both (western) conservatives and liberals. The former are disappointed by the failures of neoconservative invasions – which not just failed to bring a domino effect in the region but didn’t even democratize the invaded countries (eg Iraq and Libya). The latter, meanwhile, have lost hope after the Arab spring, which turned out to be more winter than spring, with the possible exception of Tunisia.

I climbed Everest expecting a rubbish dump but what I found surprised me | Ben Fogle

A huge clean-up is returning the world’s highest mountain to its former glory

Just over two weeks ago I was standing on the roof of the world, both figuratively and literally. I was 8,848 metres up on the summit of Mount Everest. It was the culmination of many years’ hard work, and the realisation of a childhood dream.

I have been overwhelmed by the tide of goodwill and support but one thing has become increasingly apparent. In many people’s minds, Everest has lost her crown. She has become a mountain synonymous with death, exploitation and pollution.

The best thing Germany could do for Europe is quit the single currency – but it won’t | Larry Elliott
EU leaders are saddled with a mechanism that doesn’t work. There are ways to fix that, but not the will

Even when it was clearly in decline, the Soviet Union commanded loyal devotion. Its admirers could never quite grasp that the nation instrumental in winning the second world war had a broken economy.

The same cognitive dissonance applies to the European Union today. There is the EU as it exists in the minds of its most avid supporters: fast-growing, a defender of progressive values, fighting the good fight against Thatcherism, and marching steadfastly towards greater integration.

Steve Bannon is on a far-right mission to radicalise Europe | Natalie Nougayrède
Don’t be fooled by Bannon’s split with Trump. He’s leading a Trumpian onslaught to undermine European democracy itself

Steve Bannon is on a mission. President Trump’s former chief strategist has visited Europe twice in the past four months, touring several capitals. He has been spreading the gospel of the “national populist revolt”, and he sees Europe as fertile ground for his global crusade. Maybe there is some truth in that. Italy’s current politics are a gift to him. But he has also been applauded by audiences in Prague, Budapest and France. Have we been paying enough attention?

I served 20 years for cannabis. Now the police are cashing in on it | Rosie Rowbotham

The same authorities who hounded dealers are now investors in cannabis – and there’s still no amnesty for past convictions. The hypocrisy is staggering

Over the course of my life, I have been convicted in four separate trials, sentenced to a total of 69 years in prison, and after many appeals served just over 20 of them – the first two in maximum security. I was finally released on parole in 1997.

Given the length of time I was incarcerated, you might be thinking that I was involved in hard drugs or violence. After all, some murderers do less time than I did.

Australia’s new coach Justin Langer: sledging is a fun part of the game

• There is a difference between banter and abuse, says Langer
• Ricky Ponting will be Australia assistant coach for ODI series

Justin Langer launched the first tour of Australian cricket’s new era by explaining that he likes to sledge his own daughter. In the course of a long story in which the new coach tried to draw the line between “banter” and “abuse”, Langer said “in Australia sledging is actually a good word”, “a fun part of the game” and said he loves to sledge his own family.

“If I play Uno with my daughter there’s lots of banter, we sort of sledge each other but we don’t abuse each other,” Langer said. “And when I play golf with my mum and dad we sort of sledge each other. But there’s a difference between banter and abuse, and abuse is not good. There’s no room for abuse anywhere.”

Premier League finances: the full club-by-club breakdown and verdict

The 2016-17 accounts of all top-flight clubs and what the figures say about their health. Manchester United top the charts again with a £581m income and £57m profit

Financial figures for 2016-17, for the 20 clubs that were in the Premier League during 2016-17. All details from the most recently published annual reports at Companies House. Crystal Palace have missed the deadline for filing their accounts; as a consequence, all rankings of clubs are out of 19, not 20. Net debt is as stated in the accounts; debts minus cash held at the bank. The separate categories of turnover are listed according to the wording in individual club’s accounts and are each rounded up or down, so added together they do not always tally with the total turnover figure.

Iker Casillas picks his all-time Spain XI

The former La Roja goalkeeper takes on our challenge to pick his country’s all-time XI, resulting in an extraordinary line-up

My all-time Spanish team has to lean towards the players that I have seen, mostly from my generation, although it is true that I wasn’t lucky enough to see Luis Arconada live or if I did I don’t really remember it.

But Arconada represents so much for a lot of Spaniards, an international for eight years, a finalist in France in 1984, and I’ve been able to watch him on tape and he’s fantastic, so the former Real Sociedad goalkeeper is my choice between the posts.

Leroy Sané is not the same player for Germany but dropping him is a risk

The Manchester City forward has not repeated his league form for Germany and Julian Brandt offers more tactical flexibility

By Martin Laurence for WhoScored, part of the Sport Network

There have been a number of surprising omissions from World Cup squads this summer – Mauro Icardi, Radja Nainggolan, Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere among them – but Joachim Löw’s decision to leave Leroy Sané at home has undoubtedly been the biggest. The PFA Young Player of the Year and Premier League winner enjoyed a superb season for Manchester City, with his absence from the Germany squad shining further light on the remarkable talent at the reigning champions’ disposal.

Faced with the choice of Sané and Julian Brandt for his final spot out wide, Löw went with the Bayer Leverkusen youngster. “That was a very close decision between him [Sané] and Julian Brandt,” said the head coach. “Draxler, Reus and Müller are set. Leroy is a huge talent. He will be back again from September. He had not arrived in international matches yet. It was a very close decision. If it was a 100 metre race, it would have been a photo finish. There are certainly easier days in the life of a national team head coach than the day where I have to send players home. The disappointment was huge, as you would expect. It’s as if you are stood at the check-in desk for your flight to Moscow, but are then prevented from boarding.”

Siya Kolisi: ‘We represent something much bigger than we can imagine’

South Africa’s inspirational first black Test captain Siya Kolisi has the ability to bridge the country’s racial divide

Siya Kolisi knows the meaning of what it truly is to suffer. As a small boy surviving in the township of Zwide near Port Elizabeth on South Africa’s east coast, he ate irregularly. His grandmother and young mother were unable to put food on the table every day. It was proper, aching hunger, something no child in the 21st century should have to experience.

Kolisi’s mother, Phakama, was 16 when Siya was born; his father, Fezakele, was in his final year of school. After giving birth to two more children from another relationship, Phakama died when Kolisi was 15 leaving his late grandmother, Nolulamile, to raise him.

McQueen review – meticulous portrait of fashion's master of audacity

Ian Bonhôte’s documentary conveys the outrageous glory of the designer’s work and poignantly unpicks his inner issues

Since the fashion designer Alexander McQueen took his own life at the age of 40 in 2010, his life and work has been mythologised in a colossally successful exhibition in London and New York entitled Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, and there has been a projected movie – now reportedly on hold – to which Jack O’Connell and Andrew Haigh were once attached as star and director. Now there is this sombre, thorough, intelligent and informative documentary by Ian Bonhôte giving us the moving story of a working-class boy with fierce and original talent who began as a tailor’s apprentice in Savile Row before getting mentored into the big league by fashion writer and salonnière Isabella Blow, and whose increasingly outrageous and confrontational shows made him one of the fashion world’s biggest stars.

One interviewee laughingly talks about “unwearability”. Of course. No designer could make it clearer that these shows are not about clothes to buy on the high street, but huge theatrical events to showcase the brand. McQueen was a key figure in the creativity industries of 90s Cool Britannia (although Bonhôte doesn’t make the obvious comparison to Damien Hirst and Charles Saatchi’s “young British artists” generation).

A Star Is Born: first trailer for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper film hits internet

Hotel Artemis review – Jodie Foster fixes criminals in scrappy sci-fi curio

A jam-packed cast, also including Jeff Goldblum, Sterling K Brown, Dave Bautista and Jenny Slate, populate a mostly fun, often craftily constructed dystopian thriller

There’s a lot going on in first-time director Drew Pearce’s sci-fi thriller Hotel Artemis, some of it ingenious, some of it frustratingly half-baked. It’s a film arriving in a season mostly lacking in creativity that’s filled with ideas, a misshapen B-movie that tries to bring a jagged grindhouse sensibility back into the multiplex. It almost works as well.

Motherhood by Sheila Heti review – to breed or not to breed?
A deeply ambivalent and complex study of the choice between procreation and art

In all the literature about motherhood – enthusiastic, anxious, joyfully fecund, heartbreakingly infertile – there remains very little about voluntary childlessness. This is so much the case that the decision not to have children may now be more of a taboo than maternal ambivalence. There was Selfish, Shallow and Self-Absorbed, an essay collection edited by Meghan Daum in 2015, and there are a few self-help books. But now Sheila Heti’s book seems likely to become the defining literary work on the subject, perhaps most of all because as a novel, replete with ambiguity and contradiction, it refuses to define anything, and certainly not the childlessness that provides its subject or the motherhood that provides its title.

On the eve of her 37th birthday, Heti’s narrator, who may or may not be Heti herself, asks, fearfully, whether she wants to have a child. The circumstances for procreation are unpropitious: she is impecunious, divorced and committed to her writing. But she’s in a relationship with Miles, a man she loves; she likes the idea of opening herself to the peculiar magic of pregnancy and childbirth. Beneath it all lies a worry that childrearing might prove an anticlimax, and a belief that motherhood is a “once necessary, now sentimental gesture”. So, preoccupied by these questions, she decides to document her quest by creating a work of art that might outweigh her need for a child. She structures the process through a series of dialogues with three coins, which give yes and no answers as in the ancient Chinese system of divination.

A queer, diverse Nancy Drew: is this how to keep children's classics alive?

The girl detective and Little Women are both being updated to include LGBTQ and multiethnic characters to cater for a new generation of readers – but this doesn’t always work

When the news broke that Nancy Drew, that plucky, “Titian-haired” girl detective with her handsome boyfriend and supportive girl gang, was getting an intersectional makeover, you’d forgive a queer Drewphile for bracing against an expected backlash.

After all, having seen the heavily criticised “sensitive revisions” of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five books – swapping “tinker” with “traveller” and “awful swotter” becoming “bookworm” – pulled from sale because everyone wanted the originals, you might imagine appetite for modernised literary classics had dwindled. But later this month, the New Nancy Drew Mystery Stories will be published, updating the original cast of upper-middle-class, white heterosexuals to include an openly gay George – come on, we were all thinking it – who has a black girlfriend, and George’s cousin Bess, who is reimagined as a woman of colour. It comes soon after a similar reimagining of Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 novel Little Women, with the March sisters now recast as multiracial and LGBTQ-inclusive to mark the novel’s 150th anniversary.

How to roast a chicken? The answers are horrifying

‘Roasting chicken is supposed to be simple. It is supposed to be easy. It is not’

I hate roasting chicken. There, I said it.

Eating roasted chicken, however, I like. I like forking juicy breast and gnawing luscious thigh and taking big bites of just skin. I like exploring the carcass for surprises – the bits of crunchy cartilage, the sticky nubs at the bottom of the drumsticks, the parts with cute names like oyster and pope’s nose. I like the smell of hot chicken fat, which is even better than that of the much-ballyhooed pork.

The new rules of pub etiquette: don't flirt with bar staff or steal the glasses

In 2018, the pub occupies a rather uncertain place in British society. There are 50,000, nationally. But that figure has dropped by 10,500 since 2000.

Ahead of Beer Day Britain on 15 June then, here’s a fresh look at pub etiquette. How can we all get along in the modern boozer?

When Canopy Growth opened its first cannabis factory in an old chocolate plant near Ottawa four years ago, it did so predicting a bright future. Canada had already legalized medical marijuana, and Canopy predicted full legalization for recreational use to be next.

What the company hadn’t predicted, however, was the sudden flood of foreign visitors. Politicians and police authorities from Jamaica, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Greece and Australia have all come knocking, as well as doctors from New Zealand, Brazil and Chile, along with groups of corporate investors and bankers – so many that Canopy now sometimes splits up the groups according to their birthdays.

Why the internet is not as ‘free’ as you think

It’s the basic business model of the internet – you hand over your personal data in exchange for digital services. But is it a good deal?

It was on a visit to San Francisco in 1889 that the British writer Rudyard Kipling first discovered the concept of the “free lunch”. Lost and in need of a drink, Kipling wandered around the city until he discovered a saloon, where “men with hats on the backs of their heads were wolfing food from a counter”. The food at the bar, as it turned out, was free: all that they had to pay for were the drinks which, given the widespread practice of salting the meals, they were happy to buy in large volumes.

If anything, our reliance on free goods and services has only increased. On a daily basis, millions of people across the world log on to free social networks, play and upload videos on free-to-use streaming sites and download the latest free mobile apps. Yet, as Kipling discovered, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Most of these apps offer their services in exchange for personal data, which to developers and third-party advertisers is worth its weight in gold.

Why we share our personal data … for free

We constantly give out personal information online, through social media, online transactions, or newsletter sign-ups – but how fair is the exchange?

Consumer data is the lifeblood of digital business. Every time we go online – whether it’s to shop, socialise or browse – we give away personal information about ourselves.

Think of those times you might have indulged in a fun quiz on social media, which promised to reveal, based on your answers, what legendary footballer or pop star you are. All fairly innocuous on the face of it, but each and every morsel of data you provided is now likely to be on file somewhere.

Everything you need to know about your personal data in 2018

Who is storing your personal data? And what are your rights now that General Data Protection Regulation has been passed? Here’s a guide to the changes

How many people know your bank or credit card details? The answer is probably more than you think. Every day, millions of consumers willingly hand over their names, addresses and payment details to order goods or fill out application forms online. In exchange for the provision of these services, we trust that the various organisations we hand them over to will keep them safe and away from prying eyes.

Over the past few years, this trust has been strained, with data breaches increasing in both size and scope, with consequences for individual consumers. Once stolen, personal data is often sold on to third parties, with members of the public only realising that their bank or credit card details may have been compromised weeks, months or even years after they have been taken.

Quiz: how cavalier are you with your data online?

Confused by who might access the information you reveal on the internet? Take this quiz to check your knowledge on sharing data safely online

Do online quizzes harvest your personal data?

No, that’s impossible

Every quiz is a data-harvesting exercise

I’ve never seen an online quiz

Most don’t, but some do collect information

How might an advertiser find out your relationship status?

Harvesting it from saved results in an online quiz

Through using your Facebook profile information, which you’ve left public

By buying it up from other data brokers who know you live with a partner

All of the above

You’re asked to reveal your star sign online: could companies learn or do anything useful with this information?

It would tell them a lot about your personality

It could help them serve you targeted adverts

This would be totally useless information

If you go on holiday and use social media to tag your hotel or location, what might you expect to see online?

You may see an increase in the number of local adverts

You may be prompted by the the hotel to leave a review

You may be served adverts for similar holidays in the future

All of the above

Which of these is most true about re-using passwords across different sites?

It’s just a matter of personal preference – pick what works for you

If one site gets hacked, that password can then be used to access my accounts on other sites

It’s fine to re-use passwords on sites which don’t have much sensitive information on me

It’s good because it stops me writing down my password, which is risky

When filling out forms online, is it safe to give the day of the month you were born?

It’s fine on its own, but with other information it could help ID fraud

You should never give out this information

This is harmless

Who doesn’t want everyone knowing when their birthday is?

What information could you give criminals by sharing a quiz via social media?

The quiz system is separate from social sharing, so no information can be gleaned

This risks giving a website full access to my private messages

This can lead to my answers being connected to my real-life identity

Social media platforms prevent any information being shared with third-parties

6 and above.

You are certainly concerned about your privacy and have a good knowledge of what happens online. Bear in mind that there are occasions where careful sharing can be beneficial in terms of product recommendations or better adverts (if you’re going to see them anyway), or to be able to use more sites than you can if you hand over no information at all – but ultimately it is up to you to decide the risk of what data you share online and where.

0 and above.

You might want to reconsider how much you’re sharing on the internet. While most quizzes and sites online aren’t malicious, it’s worth being careful about how much you share if you want to avoid online fraudsters or other malicious actors.

3 and above.

You seem to have quite a balanced approach to online privacy: you’ll hand over a bit of information if it’ll give you a better online experience, but you know when to be careful.

Oppression in America: 'To root this out we need a movement against racist policies'

To root out racism, academics and activists say, talk of healing is not enough: the bias at the heart of American politics, policing and society must be addressed

It seems as though every single day, the list grows.

Waiting in a coffee shop while black. Selling real estate while black. Moving in while black. Napping while black. Working out while black.

Sanne de Wilde's best photograph: the island of the colour blind

‘It’s the most colour-blind place on Earth. I had to take four flights to get there. I wanted to celebrate their unique way of seeing the world’

I shot this image of Deke, one of the smaller islands of the Pingelap atoll, in the Federated States of Micronesia, in 2015. I had travelled to the atoll to research achromatopsia, a rare genetic condition that causes complete colour blindness and hypersensitivity to light. In severe cases, all you can see is shades of grey. Worldwide, only one in every 30,000 people have achromatopsia. But on Pingelap, one in 10 do. It’s the most colour-blind place on Earth.

The prevalence of achromatopsia on the island can be traced back to the 18th century when it was engulfed by a typhoon, leaving around 20 survivors. The ruler carried the recessive gene that causes the condition. After a few generations, more or less everyone on the island was related to him.

'You can’t disregard pure racism': Gypsy writer Damian Le Bas on the prejudice against Travellers

Le Bas, who grew up in a Gypsy family, set out to visit the stopping places in Britain where his ancestors rested – and to challenge discrimination along the way

The metallic blue Transit with a horseshoe on the radiator refuses to budge. Damian Le Bas turns the key again. And again. After the eighth attempt, the engine rattles into life. “Thank fuck,” he exhales.

Le Bas, 33, a writer and film-maker, is unusually relieved because the van has been his companion for thousands of miles while exploring Britain’s “stopping places” – the sites where Travellers traditionally pulled over – and the journey has become the subject of his first book. But his relief may also be partly because the Transit is one emblem of modern male Traveller identity, and he is alive to accusations that he is somehow not a real Gypsy. It has been suggested that Le Bas, who went to boarding school and Oxford University, is merely a hipster with a van.

Pride month: the exhibitions celebrating LGBT art in June

During this year’s Pride month, a selection of exhibits across the US will showcase a variety of queer art from the political to the personal

It was 28 June 1969 when the Stonewall riots broke out in New York City, and as police raided the Stonewall Inn gay bar on Christopher Street, it also sparked the modern LGBT rights movement, resisting against violence. In 1970, the first annual Pride month followed, along with the Christopher Street Liberation Day and the first gay pride march in American history, where hundreds marched to Central Park.

Ray Bellisario obituary

Ray Bellisario, a photographic journalist who stalked the royal family for the best part of 20 years, protested until his recent death about the way that I, and other journalists, wrote about him.

In an email to me six years ago he said: “I regard you as a friend but I am profoundly offended by being labelled ‘paparazzo’. I want to be recognised for my real work as a charitable, concerned journalist who covers stories such as the Bhopal gas disaster, Aberfan … and famine in Africa and India.”

US-China relations deteriorating fast over flashpoint issues

Clashes over South China Sea, Taiwan and trade have plunged Trump and Xi into the diplomatic deep freeze

China’s expanding efforts to impose its will on neighbours through diplomatic, commercial and military pressure – the so-called Xi doctrine – have drawn the sharpest riposte to date from the Trump administration, with Taiwan once again the main flashpoint in a sea of accelerating Sino-American rivalry.

Following recent verbal clashes over US “freedom of navigation” patrols in disputed South China Sea waters, officials in Washington say they plan to send a US aircraft carrier battlegroup into the Taiwan Strait separating the island from mainland China. The move was in response to China’s military “turning up the heat” on Taiwan, an official said.

Maasai herders driven off land to make way for luxury safaris, report says

Honduran dam protesters face trial in ongoing crackdown against defenders

The ‘Jilamito Five’ are the latest to be caught up in battles over land and natural resources, that have seen more than 130 defenders killed since 2009

The suspects pray together on a concrete podium opposite the courthouse where they face criminal charges. Their alleged misdemeanour: “land invasion” during a protest against the construction of a dam. A guilty verdict could bring a jail term of up to four years.

If that seems harsh, then it’s because this is Honduras, where hundreds have been jailed and scores killed for environmental activism over the past decade. The accused – a teacher, hardware-store owner, farmers and the newly elected municipal mayor – are opposed to a dam on the Jilamito river in the tropical region of Atlántida. The authorities are hoping a prosecution will enable them to clear a makeshift community blockade in the remote hilly pastures so construction can begin.

Families around the world join war on plastic - in pictures

To celebrate World Environment day, Reuters photographers met people from Athens to Singapore trying to play their part as the war on plastics becomes a key political topic

Eight million tonnes of plastic - bottles, packaging and other waste - are dumped into the ocean every year, killing marine life and entering the human food chain, the United Nations Environment Program said in December.

While governments and retailers started clamping down on plastic bags through bans and small fees more than a decade ago, the focus has now increasingly turned to eradicating throwaway items such as straws and takeaway food and drink packaging.

'It's been my whole life': Alan and his photobooths – a picture essay

The famous photobooth at Flinders Street station in Melbourne has been the centre of one family’s life. Alan Adler tells how he got into the industry by chance in 1972, shares photos from down the years and explains why digital just doesn’t have the ‘warmth and character’

• Do you have your own pictures from the Flinders Street photobooth? Share them with our picture editor carly.earl@theguardian.com

In 1972, Alan Adler owned a grocery shop that wasn’t doing very well. An advertisement in the Age promised him $80 a week if, instead, he ran a photobooth – a contraption that he did not understand. He bought two.

“It was a disaster from day one,” he said. “One of the thermostats malfunctioned in the booth which caused the photo to come out white. I had no idea what a photobooth was about, and hadn’t seen one before I bought one.”
