Newspaper takeover is 'staggering blow' to Cambodia's free press

For 30 years Aun Pheap reported on corruption, human rights abuses, elections and political scandals for every major newspaper in Cambodia, a job he felt he was born to do. Now, like so many journalists who worked in Cambodia’s once free press, he is in exile, branded an enemy of the state.

For Pheap, formerly a reporter at the Cambodia Daily, which shut down last year, “this is the worst situation for the press and for journalists I have seen in my whole 30-year career”. And it has worsened further this week, with the sale of the Phnom Penh Post, seen as the last bastion of the free press in Cambodia, to the owner of a Malaysian PR company who has links to the regime of the Cambodian prime minister, Hun Sen.

Michael Morpurgo: My family fought for peace, not for Brexit

The War Horse author remembers the uncles who inspired his latest book, In the Mouth of the Wolf, and who taught him that peace must come before prosperity

I have just walked around the ancient ramparts of Ypres, whose name became the byword for stubborn allied resistance against the German invasion of Belgium in 1914 at the beginning of the first world war. It was an invasion that forced 250,000 Belgian refugees to get in boats and seek safety in Britain. They came. They were welcomed. They were cared for. This should be remembered, perhaps, as a lesson in kindness for us today.

In the evening, I stood in the bitter cold under the Menin Gate as the Ypres fire brigade bugles played the Last Post, as they have done every evening since 1928, except during the German occupation of Belgium in the second world war. As the echoes faded, I thought of my uncle Pieter Cammaerts, who died in the second world war – in the RAF, aged 21, in 1941. Uncle Pieter is buried in the church at Radlett, his name is on the war memorial in the Hertfordshire town, but almost no one alive today knew him. He died two years before I was born and I know him only from photographs, from family stories. But so much of the reason I was standing under the gate, so much of why I had written my most recent book, In the Mouth of the Wolf, and War Horse and Private Peaceful, was because of my uncle Pieter, and my uncle Francis.

What is the true cost of eating meat?

As concerns over the huge impact on the environment, human health and animal welfare grow, what future is there for the meat industry, asks Bibi van der Zee

What are the economics of meat?

Food and farming is one of the biggest economic sectors in the world. We are no longer in the 14th century, when as much as 76% of the population worked in agriculture – but farming still employs more than 26% of all workers globally. And that does not include the people who work along the meat supply chain: the slaughterers, packagers, retailers and chefs.

On Monday, the first lady will launch policy initiatives focused on children. But speculation remains rife about her view of the role: ‘She didn’t sign up for this’

She is married to the most powerful man in the world. She does her duty and remains silent as he utters falsehoods, hurls insults and admits paying hush money to an actor in adult films who alleges an extramarital affair. Little wonder that one columnist dubbed her the “Slovenian Sphinx”.

Cancer: 'If exercise was a pill it would be prescribed to every patient'

Leading Australian researchers back world-first campaign for activity to be part of any treatment

Sign up to receive the top stories in Australia every day at noon

Exercise should be prescribed to all cancer patients, and not to do so would be harmful, some of Australia’s leading experts on cancer have warned.

The Clinical Oncology Society of Australia has launched its position statement on the role of exercise alongside surgery, chemotherapy or radiation in cancer care.

Censored images of 1930s America to go on show in London

Prints made from negatives reveal reality faced by farming communities during Great Depression

Beautiful but mutilated images of rural America by some of the most famous photographers of the 20th century will soon go on display for the first time at the Whitechapel gallery in London.

Each of the photographs, printed for the first time, including works by Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange and Russell Lee, bears an eerie black spot. The black circles – obliterating the entire face of a farmer in North Dakota, the right eye of a woman in Arkansas, or resembling an eclipsed sun hanging in the sky over labourers in Maryland – were created when the negatives were censored in the 1930s by clipping them with a metal punch.

Now Rohingya refugees are threatened by monsoons. Britain must help | Jo Stevens
One million people in temporary shelters along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border are in a truly desperate situation

None of us can be ignorant of the desperate situation facing the Rohingya people – it is one of the greatest humanitarian crises of recent times. I have been to the refugee camps on Bangladesh-Myanmar border, where almost 1 million Rohingya refugees are in temporary shelters. I met refugees who have fled unspeakable levels of violence and systematic abuse, including the murder of entire villages by the Myanmar military. This latest atrocity is the result of a sustained campaign of marginalisation and discrimination that started decades before the August 2017 genocide. I support a referral to the international criminal court. The UK government doesn’t.

The Rohingya are Muslims who live in majority-Buddhist Myanmar. They are often described as "the world's most persecuted minority".

Think it's funny that China is cracking down on Peppa Pig? Think again | Phoebe-Jane Boyd

The censorship of children’s entertainment for adult ends is an old story, and everyone is at it – including us

A girl-piglet and a boy-piglet, a mummy and daddy pig, no LGBTQ characters or focus on race or religion; Peppa Pig isn’t an obvious target for controversy or counterculture worship. At first glance, it could be a pretty solid adult choice for boredom or sleep. Yet the Douyin video platform in China deems its influence to be a potentially harmful one, due to its growing popularity among the country’s shehuiren. That’s anti-establishment “gangster” internet users to some, or people who like memes and get tattoos of asinine cartoon characters because it’s a bit funny to others.

Like people who spend a lot of time on Tumblr, Reddit, or 4chan, ironic Peppa Pig fans probably aren’t a danger to the continuation of humanity as we know it. They might need tattoo-removal services at some point, but a government ban on the cartoons they like, as well as their associated hashtags, is a bit much. For many here in the UK, the ban in China has been taken as bizarre and hilarious. Peppa as a figurehead for “unruly slackers”, a cult-like hero calling society’s disaffected to rebel? The cartoon? It’s always been a pedestrian watch, probably even for the generation of children it was designed for. To kids watching who come from single-parent families, have two mums, or are living in foster homes, Peppa Pig’s cosily conservative family set-up may be as otherworldly as talking pigs and rabbits.

Free-speech warriors mistake student protest for censorship | Adam Tickell
Young people today should be free to stake out their politics the same way my peers did 35 years ago

• Adam Tickell is vice-chancellor of the University of Sussex

Free speech on campus has once again become a point of contention. The universities minister, Sam Gyimah, has called for tough new guidelines to protect freedom of expression. His remarks come amid claims that books are being removed from libraries, and speakers banned from campuses – all because “generation snowflake” is too timid to hear discordant opinions.

The reality is, of course, quite different. Universities continue to be places where free speech thrives. Arguments about who should, and shouldn’t, be given a platform are hardly new. I studied at the University of Manchester during the 1980s miners’ strike. The then home secretary, Leon Brittan, was invited to speak at the students’ union – prompting a major demonstration. Brittan came through the back entrance and spoke to a small group inside the hall. While by no means sympathetic to the speaker, I shared the view of the students’ union executive, which supported his right to speak.

Did the dying Stephen Hawking really mean to strengthen the case for God? | Philip Goff
In his final paper on the multiverse hypothesis, the world’s best-known atheist made a supernatural creator more plausible

Scientists have discovered a surprising fact about our universe in the past 40 years: against incredible odds, the numbers in basic physics are exactly as they need to be to accommodate the possibility of life. If gravity had been slightly weaker, stars would not have exploded into supernovae, a crucial source of many of the heavier elements involved in life. Conversely, if gravity had been slightly stronger, stars would have lived for thousands rather than billions of years, not leaving enough time for biological evolution to take place. This is just one example – there are many others – of the “fine-tuning” of the laws of physics for life.

Abolish bank holidays. Give us days off with meaning instead | Julian Baggini

A Manchester Day for Manchester, a Kent Day for Kent? How about an Equal Rights Day? Let’s make public holidays matter

Britain has many quaint bank holiday rituals, such as sitting in motorway traffic jams or stubbornly lying on the beach when the wind-chill is close to freezing. One of the more understandable is pointing out how few days off we have compared with many other countries and calling to have more of them. I beg to differ. We shouldn’t have more bank holidays, we should abolish them altogether.

Bank holidays are a British idiosyncrasy that some former members of our empire continue to honour. Other countries don’t have more of them, they have public holidays instead. This is not a matter of mere terminology. A public holiday is a shared civic commemoration of something important for the society that celebrates it. These include Bastille Day in France, Liberation Day in Italy and Waitangi Day in New Zealand, which commemorates the signing of the nation’s founding treaty by the British Crown and Maori chiefs.

Barcelona and Real Madrid explode into life to make the clásico matter | Sid Lowe

There was supposed to be little to play for but after 28 shots, four goals, a red card and bags of controversy, it didn’t feel like it

“Nah, nah, it was quiet,” Marcelo grinned and everyone laughed. A few metres away, through the door to the left, Ernesto Valverde took a seat and came straight out with it. “Decaffeinated,” he said dead pan, the hint of a smirk of his face. There was a bit of a laugh then too. Everyone knew what they meant, the irony not lost on anyone, Valverde’s first word of the week, sent right back at them.

Outside, the confetti had settled all around the Camp Nou, billions of bits of colour everywhere, and it was quiet now, midnight approaching and 97,797 people heading home, but still their minds raced and their hearts too, trying to make sense of it all, picking their way through what they’d just seen. “Bloody hell, what a clásico!” Barcelona’s manager said.

Just give LeBron the ball and get out of the way

LeBron James is giving his hometown fans one final gift: the best basketball of his life in the last days before he walks away

In the hazy aftermath of LeBron James’ floating, falling game-winning bank shot kissed off the backboard on Saturday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers seemed confused as to the name of the final play. Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said it’s called ‘3 Open’. Others on the team thought the title is ‘Open 4’.

Whatever the play’s name, the meaning is not ambiguous.

Boxing rips dignity away like a stolen heart – David Haye is a spent force | Kevin Mitchell
After his second defeat by Tony Bellew, David Haye dodged questions about retirement but the 37-year-old is now a sitting duck for top fighters

Boxing accommodates no calumny, which is why David Haye should look back over his pronouncements before and after his devastating second defeat by Tony Bellew and consider doing what all fighters must eventually do: quit the day job.

Three days before the 37-year-old Londoner endured his what might prove to be his farewell nightmare, he confessed: “My only reason for being in boxing is to prove I’m the best on the planet. I need to prove I’m better than Tony before I can think about that.”

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

Aubameyang can revive Arsenal, Butland lays bare Stoke’s shameful truth and West Ham would be foolish to ditch Moyes

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang might not be a classic Arsène Wenger signing because he cost a lot of money and is already close to his peak but at 28 he is certainly a man who can lead the next incarnation of Arsenal. Alongside Alexandre Lacazette the duo showed how exciting Arsenal can still be even if Burnley looked like a team packed for their summer holidays as they made up the numbers, offering less energy than the post-match speeches, in what was effectively a testimonial at the Emirates. Wenger might rue the fact he missed bringing the Gabonese international Aubameyang to England earlier – a striker not deemed good enough by Milan in his youth would have made the perfect project for the outgoing manager – but he is still leaving behind something tangible for someone to work with for years to come.

Mainz use Klopp masterclass to topple Dortmund and seal survival | Andy Brassell

Sandro Schwarz’s team pulled off one of the shocks of the weekend – and they were inspired by highlights of Liverpool

“Und das Reste ist Party,” as ZDF’s Das Aktuelle Sportstudio put it. The best nights out are often spontaneous ones and so it proved for Mainz. The 05ers had looked like the perfect opponents for Borussia Dortmund, who sought to seal Champions League qualification at the end of an often-fraught season against a side they had beaten on each of their previous six visits to Signal Iduna Park.

Instead, Sandro Schwarz’s team pulled off one of the shocks of the weekend, and perhaps even of the season. After their 2-1 win on Saturday, a side among the pre-season favourites for the drop are safe with a game to spare and celebrated with their 3,000 travelling fans like they had reached the Champions League themselves.

Juventus have Serie A (nearly) in the bag but the fight elsewhere is just hotting up | Paolo Bandini

The title will go to Juventus again after Napoli’s impressive season faded but the fight for Europe and to survive is set to go down to the wire

For the seventh season running, Juventus will be champions of Italy. The Scudetto is not officially theirs just yet, but we are into the realm of technicalities. A 3-1 win over Bologna, accompanied by a draw for Napoli, extended their lead to six points with two games left to play.

The first tie-breaker, head-to-head results, would be split with the Partenopei, since each beat the other 1-0 away from home. Next is goal difference, where Juventus are ahead by 16. Realistically, it will not come to that anyway. The Bianconeri’s final game of the season is at home to relegated Verona.

World Snooker Championship final: Mark Williams v John Higgins – live!

Williams is cruising about the table now! He’s looked so good today, more so than yesterday, though he won the last three frames then. Quickly, he strokes his way to 32, and in a few minutes it’ll be six in a row.

Higgins leaves a red and Williams pushes it home, but doesn’t get the connection he was seeking so has to try the black from close to the top cushion. He overcuts though ... only for Higgins to miss the only red available. Again, it wasn’t easy; again, he sees it home if he’s not struggling to hold it down. Perhaps in that knowledge, he brings the white up t near the green ... only for Williams to spend a while psyching himself up to play a red to the top right, close to the side cushion ... and what a shot that is!

Chloë Sevigny: ‘I didn’t want to name names. I think they’re commonly known as assholes anyway’

More than 20 years ago, the actor was anointed ‘the coolest girl in the world’. As her new film opens, she talks about A-list movie stars hogging the best TV roles and why she chose not to add her voice to #MeToo

Chloë Sevigny walks into the bar of a hotel in downtown New York like a discreet but still conquering hero: leather jacket, red lipstick, round John Lennon-style sunglasses and a laugh that draws the eyes of the room. She recently moved back to Manhattan from a far-flung neighbourhood of Brooklyn, where she had gone in search of a quieter life. For decades, the actor enjoyed the buzz of being a well-known figure, until suddenly, in her early 40s, she didn’t. “But it didn’t work out,” she says, drily. Brooklyn was too quiet, too far; not Sevigny’s style at all and now she is back – greeting people she knows every few paces – a somewhat reluctant queen of the scene.

It is more than 20 years since Sevigny was anointed “the coolest girl in the world” by Jay McInerney in his New Yorker profile, a piece that now reads like the slightly doddery engagement of a middle-aged man with youth culture, and for whose purposes any modish 19-year-old woman may have served. Sevigny has never been “cool” in the traditional sense, being neither detached nor aloof.

Ermanno Olmi, Palme d'Or winner for Tree of Wooden Clogs, dies aged 86

Award-garlanded Italian director renowned for his commitment to realism and non-professional actors was a winner at both Cannes and Venice

Ermanno Olmi, the Italian director who won both the Cannes Palme d’Or and the Venice Golden Lion, has died aged 86. Italy’s ministry of culture announced the news, describing the director as “a giant, a great master of Italian cinema” and that his death was a “great loss to Italian culture”. Olmi died in hospital in Asiago, near Vincenza; no cause of death has been confirmed but Olmi had been ill for some time.

Italy’s culture minister Dario Franceschini said Olmi was “a deep-thinking intellectual who explored the human mystery, and described, with the poetry that characterised his work, the connection between man and nature, the dignity of labour, and its spirituality”.

Saturday Night Live: Stormy Daniels acts up while Donald Glover does it all

It’s tricky to know where to start with Trump, so the cast threw a lot of jokes at the wall. Not many of them stuck

Michael Cohen (Ben Stiller) is in a panic, trying to get answers from Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin), who patches him through to a cast of characters that almost makes me feel nostalgic: Harold Bornstein (Martin Short), Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), Rudy Giuliani (Kate McKinnon), Melania (Cecily Strong), Ivanka and Jared (Scarlett Johansson and Jimmy Fallon), Stormy Daniels (Stormy Daniels).

No sex please we’re British: exploring On Chesil Beach's chaste state of mind

Repressed, stiff-upper-lipped Englishness is en vogue again. But should we be encouraging it?

“They were young, educated, and both virgins on this, their wedding night, and they lived in a time when a conversation about sexual difficulties was plainly impossible.” Ian McEwan’s 2007 novel On Chesil Beach sets out a familiar stall in its opening lines. The story revolves around a fateful night of non-consummation between newlyweds, played in the new movie adaptation by Billy Howle and Saoirse Ronan. We have seen their condition many times before: it’s called Englishness. It begins with a stiffness of the upper lip but soon extends to the entire host organism.

Tapes reveal Francis Bacon's shock at 1968 drug bust

Artist told friend he ‘straight away went to my easel’ after police found lover’s cannabis

Francis Bacon was so shaken after the police raided his studio and found cannabis hidden in the base of an African carved statue that he vented his fury at his easel.

To release his tension, the artist painted a portrait of his then lover George Dyer, to whom the drugs belonged and who had tipped off the police after a row, a previously unheard recording reveals.

'Vogue was my escape hatch!' André Leon Talley on Warhol, Wintour and weight interventions

After a poor childhood, he became editor-at-large at US Vogue. He talks about racism in fashion, why he stopped reading British Vogue, his new documentary – and dressing Melania Trump

When André Leon Talley was fresh out of college, he went to intern at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It was the early 1970s and Diana Vreeland, the legendary former editor at Vogue, was consulting at the Costume Institute and put him to work. “I was very tall and skinny,” says Talley. “I had very good clothes, although very few clothes. I followed the trends, the world of Rive Gauche.” He was an anomaly in the white, upper–class world of high fashion – an African American from a poor background in Durham, North Carolina – but he had something Vreeland and later Anna Wintour would recognise: a belief amounting to fervour in his power to become “the self–made person I am through the mythology of Vogue”.

Talley, who turns 70 this year, sits in the sun room of an exclusive restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, wearing one of his trademark kaftans and breaking off every few moments to converse with the waiter in French. If he is little known beyond the fashion world, that may be about to change with the opening of a documentary next month that tells the story of Talley’s extraordinary trajectory from grandson of sharecroppers to editor-at-large at Vogue; a man who, unlike so many of the pinched and unhappy looking women who guard the gates of high fashion, seems to embody the unfulfilled promise of that world: pure joy.

Why I lied to my therapists

Melissa Broder, the poet behind the popular Twitter account @SoSadToday, spent 18 years in therapy. But she never told the truth. Here, she explains why she’s now going it alone

I remember the exact moment when I realised my therapist could not stop death. I had just watched a man die – my boyfriend’s step-father, the first death I’d ever seen up close – and it became achingly clear to me that I, too, would one day face the dying process. It wasn’t that I was previously unaware of my own inevitable death. I’d talked about it, written about it, and joked about it as much as any respectable poet should, which is to say, a lot. When I wasn’t pontificating glibly about taking the big dirt nap, I’d been greatly haunted by the reality of my own demise – particularly when coming down off psychedelics or following an all-nighter on speed.

Yet in those other instances, it was as though I had a choice as to whether or not to look death in the face. Even on drugs, I was always eventually able to pull the curtain down and think about something else. But now it was as if the barrier between me and death-awareness had vanished. There was no curtain left to pull down, no blinder left to put on. I feared that it was finally happening: the bats in my belfry had at last taken over and I would be trapped permanently in this state.

Find it difficult to resist alcohol or drugs? How running can help

Exercise can have a powerful impact on people struggling with addiction, as members of the Skid Row Running Club know all too well. Could this be one of the best natural ways to address withdrawal symptoms?

Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles has been a ghetto for the impoverished, marginalised and substance-addicted for a century. This small neighbourhood has a homeless population of about 4,500 and a fearsome reputation as the place you end up when you hit rock bottom. Perhaps surprisingly, it also has an early morning running club. As the sun rises and turns the sky pink, the group can be seen bobbing past the tents and supermarket trolleys of personal effects, offering a glimmer of hope.

The Skid Row Running Club meets three times a week at 5.45am and members include recovering addicts and local workers. Rain or shine, the club’s leader, a judge called Craig Mitchell, will be among them – a pillar of strength, empathy and community-mindedness, and the star of a rousing new documentary, Skid Row Marathon.

Seven ways ... to prevent weak bones

While factors such as age and gender affect your chances of getting osteoporosis, there are many lifestyle changes you can make to reduce the risk

Weight-bearing exercise (walking, running) helps to keep bones strong. Ideally, you need a mix of “feet on the ground” activity and muscle resistance such as weights, press-ups and swimming. No one knows precisely how much exercise is needed; the NHS says adults aged 19 to 64 should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week. Three 10-minute periods of fast walking every day is a good target. There is little evidence that exercise prevents fractures once you have weak bones (called osteopenia if it is mild and osteoporosis if more severe), but people who keep active into old age are less likely to fall – and if you don’t fall, you are less likely to break a bone.

Is it weird to say sorry to my ex three years on? | Dear Mariella

Do it! Says Mariella. Keep it simple, keep it brief, write it from the heart

The dilemma Three years ago, I split up with my girlfriend of seven years. I felt very unhappy and put it down to the relationship. She was devastated and wanted to resolve things. But by that stage I’d made my mind up. I’ve lived a quiet, celibate life since, which has given me time to reflect. It struck me that I’d been very selfish – after an initial romantic period where I pulled all manner of stunts to impress her, my effort as a boyfriend tapered down to the bare minimum. Secondly, I realised they had been the best days of my life. We went on amazing adventures which we probably wouldn’t have done otherwise, and had very different skills sets, which complemented each other. After we split up, I made little effort to maintain our friendship, maybe because I felt guilty. Now I’m ashamed of how I treated her and can’t forgive myself. I want to write and apologise, but it sounds weird and inappropriate. It’s hard to write without it sounding like a rapprochement, which it isn’t. Is writing such a letter an appropriate thing to do?

We should all be writing letters to our lovers, ex or otherwise, to say hello, or sorry, or thanks

Fatbergs are the true time capsules of all we’d like to forget | Eva Wiseman

They are every sin we’ve ever committed, shoved into a small hole and covered with hot grease. We get the celebrities we deserve and we have truly earned the fatberg

When we weren’t concentrating, Britain’s fatbergs became international celebrities. And that’s on us, that’s something we’re going to have to deal with – we created our own Kardashian clan, and a special house for them in the sewer under KFC Aldgate East. We Frankensteined this thing, this beast, out of sanitary towels and chip fat, and then some condoms, and then the guilt that came with the condom night, that oily shame, and then some small plastic pens, of the sort you get in betting shops. Every sin we’ve ever committed, shoved into a small hole and covered with hot grease. The fatberg is the portrait Britain hides in its attic, a true representation of everything we really are, all the things that come out of us. And while we went on working, flirting, dousing ourselves in duty free Chanel and glitter gel to look pretty for the builders, down there, in our private parts beneath the pavement, the bits we wanted to hide were growing.

I lived in Whitechapel in east London for 10 years, above the notorious “Whitechapel monster”, a fatberg the weight of 11 double-decker buses. It makes sense that after years of blockages across the world, it was this one, under a site so associated with nightmarish murders and Victorian ruin, that pushed its way into our imaginations and on to the A-list. And while I am certain I never flushed moisturising toilet wipes down the loo, there is surely a part of me and my awfulness compressed in that pumice-like mass, a beast that inspires as many metaphors as it does reflexive gags. I am fatberg.

Specifically, rising summertime temperatures in the hottest states will curb economic growth. And the states with the hottest summertime temperatures are all located in the South: Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Arkansas, and Arizona. All of these states voted for Donald Trump in 2016.

Film hailing Saudi progress on women's rights branded 'dreadful propaganda'

Footage of women using wingsuits fails to take off as critics condemn strapline suggesting great women are supported by men

A film intended to celebrate progress on women’s rights in Saudi Arabia has been condemned by experts and rights groups as a “dreadful piece of propaganda” that will serve only to reinforce the existing culture of discrimination in the country.

Launched by the Saudi-based organisation Alwaleed Philanthropies, one of the world’s largest private philanthropic foundations, the film aims to highlight reforms in the deeply conservative state, where women can now attend sports events and will soon be able to drive cars.

In Belfast fear is growing that the hated barriers will go up again

The row over Brexit and the border threatens to stop the slow removal of the peace walls that divide Protestant and Catholic

Pointing down the hill at an opening in the metal fence that runs through north Belfast’s Alexandra Park, Ciarán Shannon, 58, recalls venturing to the bottom end of the park when he was about 12. “I was chased out by loyalist kids. From then until 2011, I hadn’t set foot in the other side of the park. There are an awful lot of stories like that.”

The three-metre fence, one of scores of so-called “peace walls” that still divide loyalist and nationalist communities in Northern Ireland, was erected in 1994. Yet thanks to work by cross-community workers such as Shannon, and after a lengthy consultation exercise, the gate was added in 2011.

From Qatar’s blockade, a bold, unexpected new vision is emerging

Enforced isolation has given the emirate confidence to pursue a political and cultural reboot

For most of the past year the city-state of Qatar, the wealthiest peninsula on the planet, has been exploring the law of unintended consequences. The trigger for that came last June, when Qatar’s closest neighbours, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the UAE, escalated a simmering disquiet about the Gulf state’s role in the region to implement a full land and air blockade.

Overnight, planes and cargo ships heading for Qatar were diverted, all diplomatic links were cut and Qatar’s sole land border, with Saudi Arabia, was closed. Even camels were not spared the politics – 12,000 Qatari animals were forcibly repatriated.

'The stigma is overwhelming': a new doc probes America's mental health crisis

Oscar-nominated film-maker Liz Garbus’s new documentary examines the difficulties of raising children with psychiatric disorders and why we need more empathy for their mothers

In 1955, the number of mentally ill Americans in public psychiatric hospitals peaked at 560,000. Since then, that number has been in sharp decline: as a result of deinstitutionalization and the massive transfer of mental health funding from the federal government to states, people – especially children – suffering from psychiatric disorders and emotional disturbances have fallen through the cracks.

Go fund yourself: crowdfunding is now an essential part of America's safety net

In the past, local activists may have turned to elected officials to raise funds, but now they rely on crowdfunding sites to pay for basics – including school lunches

For years, Annie Hanshew has wanted things to change in her hometown of Helena, Montana – she even ran for the local school board. But her activism came to a head when she found out in April that a collection agency planned to squeeze more than $100,000 from families who hadn’t paid for school meals, Hanshew, 36, felt she had to take strong action, especially after she discovered, to her horror, that school district officials hadn’t been tracking which student debtors actually qualified for either free or reduced lunch: she knew that this move would further burden area low-income families.

In the past, a local activist like Hanshew might have simply called their school board or complained to an elected official and Hanshew and other people did do the latter. But these are dark times, filled with distrust for efficacy of the established order. So Hanshew then reached for the authority many Americans have resorted to as of late when confronted by an emergency or a personal tragedy: GoFundMe.

Livia Firth: It’s not realistic to think we're going to be in a world without leather or wool

Environmental fashion campaigner visits Tasmania to learn about wool production, its impact on the environment and mulesing

The environmental fashion campaigner, who grew up in Italy, remembers hand washing her sweaters each summer, carefully storing them away, then unpacking them the following winter. She would wear them year after year so she had to look after them. This was before fast, disposable fashion she says, “We did it a different way.”

In Bristol, a student throws a party that promises to be a mix of “Indian glamour” and “colonial chic”, to – as the original invite (before it is changed) says – be a “luxurious yet debauch [sic] throwback to the glory days of the early 20th century, where Britain and India lived side by side”. Hey! Let’s party! Colonial style! Except only the chic bits of the colonies? None of that oppressed and occupied peoples bit! The thing that stays with me is how clueless this student is about the British Empire and its relationship with a country it occupied.

The student is not alone in his ignorance. As a country, we are woefully uneducated about the realities of the British Empire. A survey in 2016 found that 44% of people were proud of Britain’s colonialism. The same survey asked whether the British Empire was a good thing or a bad thing: 43% said it was good. Good for who? The British? Sure. The people it enslaved? Hmmm, suddenly not so sure. I find it troubling that the British Empire is credited with ending the transatlantic slave trade, something it started. In terms of Britain and India, the focus of this party, let’s not forget one was responsible for the partitioning of the other, which resulted in the forced moving of 10 million people and the killing of 1 million people. Famines, caused by the Empire, resulted in up to 29 million deaths in India. So, at what point did Britain and India live side by side?

Madagascar's vanilla wars: prized spice drives death and deforestation

As the price of pods has soared so has violence – and forest defenders are increasingly risking their lives to protect precious wildlife habitat from being felled for profit

The vanilla thieves of Anjahana were so confident of their power to intimidate farmers they provided advance warning of raids. “We are coming tonight,” they would write in a note pushed under doors in this remote coastal village in Madagascar. “Prepare what we want.”

But they either undervalued their target commodity or overestimated the meekness of their victims. After one assault too many at the turn of the year, a crowd rounded up five alleged gangsters, dragged them into the village square and then set about the bloody task of mob justice.
