Carenza di vitamina D, occhio a questi segnali

Carenza di vitamina D, occhio a questi segnali

L’unica certezza che abbiamo sulla vitamina D è che si tratta di un ormone fondamentale per il buon funzionamento del metabolismo minerale: una carenza può comportare aumentati rischi di frattura ossea, dolori muscolari e debolezza. Oggi la vitamina D viene considerata una specie di “panacea” per tutti i mali (infezioni, malattie cardiovascolari, tumori), ma studi conclusivi in questo senso non ce ne sono, dunque al momento si tratta soltanto di ipotesi suffragate - in alcuni casi - da dati che andranno ulteriormente approfonditi. Un’eventuale carenza di vitamina D deve essere valutata dal proprio medico di fiducia o da uno specialista (endocrinologo), attraverso uno specifico esame del sangue, e nel caso integrata con dosi stabilite dal medico stesso.

It’s a night that will be ingrained in people’s minds for generations to come: 8 November 2016. The night Donald Trump proved all political pundits, and pollsters wrong and spread much shock, and a lot of alarm across the planet, while delighting his supporters.

For people watching the results unfold in the US, particularly those who supported Hillary Clinton and were preparing to celebrate America’s first female president, it was a turbulent night. Many people watched the event unfold through updates on their phones and tried to make sense of the moment by texting their family and friends.

There's a reason Joan Didion's work endures: she changed the way we wrote | Brigid Delaney

The master of the personal essay taught us it’s not enough to ask ‘what happened?’ if you neglect ‘how did it feel?’

When Griffin Dunne announced he had the go-ahead to film a documentary about Joan Didion, the great writer – and, as it happens, his aunt – he crowdfunded the money needed in a day. Netflix kicked in with the rest and the result is The Center Will Not Hold, streaming now.

Didion has been the master of holding readers back while appearing – in her prose at least – to let you in. So fans, of which there are many, have been hoping for an unguarded moment – something that unwraps the enigma.

What will happen on Trump's super-sized state visit to China?

China is laying on a red-carpet welcome for the US president – but what do the two countries hope to achieve?

Trump is expected to land in Beijing on Wednesday afternoon for what China is billing as a “state visit-plus”. That lofty designation suggests China’s nominally communist rulers will welcome the world’s most famous capitalist with a show-stopping display of pomp and circumstance designed to flatter his ego and win, if not his heart then at least his acquiescence.

Twitter users respond to #280characters rollout: 'All we wanted was an edit button'

All users now get twice as many characters per tweet, and it’s fair to say the response has been mixed

Twitter has officially unleashed its 280 character count to the masses.

The social media platform had originally selected only a small number of accounts to test the longer feature. However, it announced on Tuesday that it would expand the character limit from 140 characters to 280 for all of its users.

Cyclist who gave Trump the middle finger: 'He wasn't going to hear me through the glass'

Juli Briskman has been hailed as a hero – and fired from her job – for a spur-of-the moment demonstration that quickly spread around the world

Juli Briskman found flowers on her doorstep on Monday night. “Juli: I don’t know you and yet I am so proud of you,” an accompanying note said. “You’re my hero. Truly. Thank you for standing up to this admin. We need more like you. Continue to resist. We’re with you all the way. Sally M.”

Briskman does not know who Sally M is, but she knows what motivated the message. In the past week, she has received media calls from as far away as Colombia and Sweden as well as her share of hate mail. One told her: “I hope you get used to saying, ‘Do you want fries with that?’”

'They let people die': searching for justice after Florida's nursing home tragedy

When a care home lost power during Hurricane Irma, 14 died in the sweltering heat. Two months later, a family is demanding answers

Erika Navarro finds it hard to hold back the tears when she talks of her two grandparents who fell victim to the sweltering heat of a Florida nursing home that lost power and air conditioning after Hurricane Irma swept through in September.

Just days before his death at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, and one day before the storm hit, Navarro, 30, had a final FaceTime conversation with Miguel Franco in which she promised she was on her way home from California to celebrate his 93rd birthday.

Lost and powerless – Theresa May has become a martyr without a cause | Rafael Behr
With inept and unruly ministers such as Boris Johnson and Priti Patel, the prime minister can’t deliver Brexit or the social justice she promised

The Conservative party has become seriously unserious about government. Trouble piles up at the prime minister’s door with the intensity of a macabre circus: one scandal stumbles into the next, then in comes another, and another, each tripping over the one before; ridiculous without being funny.

Heading the nasty clown parade is Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary. He told a parliamentary committee last week that a British woman imprisoned in Iran was in that country to teach journalists. But Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s employer and family insist she was in the country to visit relatives. Tehran says she was agitating against the regime there – an accusation given fresh impetus by Johnson’s remarks. That isn’t a gaffe. It is culpable negligence.

Is it ... Baa-rack Obama? Sheep able to recognise celebrities, say neuroscientists

Sheep able to distinguish pictures of celebrities from unfamiliar faces with near-human accuracy, with implications for research into Huntington’s disease

It has all the makings of a pub quiz teaser: what do Barack Obama, Emma Watson, Jake Gyllenhaal and the British TV presenter Fiona Bruce have in common? The answer, courtesy of neuroscientists in Cambridge, is that all have been recognised by sheep.

The unlikely connection emerges from work on the face recognition skills of a Welsh Mountain breed that belongs to a university flock. Having trained the animals on mugshots of the four, scientists found the sheep could distinguish the celebrities from unfamiliar faces with an accuracy comparable to that of humans.

I hate internet outrage. But could we have stopped Weinstein without it?

Social media has leveled the playing field between those with immense power and the rest of us. But there are upsides and downsides to public shaming

  • If you would like advice from Emma Brockes on how to be a human online, send us a brief description of your concerns to human.online@theguardian.com

I mostly hate the internet. But the outrage and debate that has arisen in the wake of the Weinstein allegations couldn’t have happened without it. That has to be a good thing, right?

Hey. I mostly hate the internet, too. And until this business with Weinstein, I have mostly hated the internet for the way in which it enables certain kinds of debate. Some extraordinary benefits are coming out of the Weinstein revelations, mostly obviously the sense of collective strength derived from the testimony of so many women. But in terms of the systems via which it has emerged, I’m not sure this scandal entirely changes the game.

Louvre Abu Dhabi: Jean Nouvel's spectacular palace of culture shimmers in the desert

With its cosmic dome and starry latticework, the French architect’s water-lapped Gulf outpost shuns the petrodollar glitz of its neighbours. But there’s no whitewashing the appalling treatment of the labourers who built its light-filled halls

Hovering just above the sandy shores of Saadiyat Island like an upturned colander washed up on the beach, the metallic-domed roof of the new Louvre Abu Dhabi doesn’t give much away from the outside.

A cluster of white blocks spreads out from beneath the great cupola like scattered sugar cubes, forming little streets and squares, like a village in the desert. And compared with the garish mirror-glass towers of the city’s seafront corniche across the water, this multimillion-pound palace of culture seems almost modest.

Could these old cassette tapes be my cash in the attic? | Tim Dowling
Millennials have been seduced by the audio technology of my youth. If fresh demand outstrips supply, I could make a pretty penny

About 20 years ago I wrote an article about the demise of the cassette tape. It was, I dimly recall, a fond farewell to the format, even though, at bottom, I didn’t care. I figured humanity would cope. Even then I only really listened to cassettes in our old car, back when the millennials were still going crazy for The Wheels on the Bus and Other Songs.

Two decades later, for reasons not entirely apparent to me, the cassette is once again desirable. New and established bands have taken to releasing music on tape. From a base of basically zero, sales are way up: 129,000 pre-recorded tapes were sold in the US last year. To millennials, it seems, the cassette represents something between music and artefact.

How the Country Music Awards tried to silence talk of gun control

Before this year’s ceremony, the CMA threatened to remove journalists asking about the Las Vegas shooting. Despite a reversal, it raises questions about the industry’s close connections with the NRA

In the years since the Dixie Chicks were exiled to the Island Of Misfit Toys for denouncing George Bush, the country music industry has fostered a fear-driven culture, in which artists have shied away from making statements that might be perceived as controversial.

Indicative of this mindset is an utterly tone-deaf policy issued by the Country Music Association (CMA) roughly a week in advance of the 51st annual CMA Awards ceremony. Claiming that they wanted to focus on celebrating the year in country music, the CMA decreed that any journalists who broached topics of last month’s Las Vegas shooting, gun control, or any other politically unsavory subject when interviewing artists on the event’s red carpet would risk having their press credentials revoked and being removed from the grounds by security.

Andy Murray targets Tour return in January for Australian Open

• Scot comes through charity match against Roger Federer
• ‘I thought I did OK. My hip felt pretty good, not perfect, but it’s getting better’

Andy Murray, still limping and slyly grimacing as if housing a small pea in a shoe, flexed his working muscles with enough conviction against Roger Federer here on Tuesday night to suggest that a four-month absence from tennis has not impaired his determination to return as soon as he can.

Nor has it doused his love of the game, and he might yet be back in January as planned, testing himself at the age of 31 in the sub-tropical heat of Brisbane before the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Stuart Broad aiming to bowl like Glenn McGrath in first Ashes Test at Brisbane
England fast bowler took six first-innings wickets at the Gabba four years ago and is hoping he can again frustrate the Australia batsmen in the way McGrath used to do to the opposition

As he readies himself for a return to Brisbane, where he holds a very special place in local spleens, Stuart Broad is happy sitting out the second of England’s three tour matches. While he “bowled like a drain” in Perth it is more important, he says, for batsmen to adapt to the pink ball than bowlers, and he wants to rest now before playing in Townsville next week so he peaks at the right time.

This is Broad’s third tour of Australia. The first ended with injury in Adelaide, with his replacements excelling as England went on to win. In the second England were thrashed but Broad bowled well in the face of a mauling from the public. He has bowled a match-winning spell in each of his three Ashes series at home (all of which England won), but arrives feeling he has plenty to prove. “I feel like I’m ready for one of those spells again,” he says, and he is thinking hard about how he will make it happen.

Andrea Pirlo was a rare talent – a winner and dreamer who oozed creative cool | Paolo Bandini

The Italian retires with nothing left to prove, having achieved that highest form of football recognition – the stage at which a footballer’s name becomes synonymous with their position. The ‘Pirlo role’ is understood worldwide

Andrea Pirlo loved to pull pranks on Gennaro Gattuso. The two midfielders played together for more than a decade with Milan and Italy, winning everything from Serie A to the World Cup and Champions League. They became fast friends, but that did not stop Pirlo from stealing Gattuso’s phone one day and texting his agent, offering his sister in return for an improved contract.

It was not the practical jokes, though, that tormented Gattuso the most. Harder to cope with were the existential crises provoked by training alongside such outlandish talent. As he mused on one occasion: “When I watch Pirlo play, and see him with the ball at his feet, I ask myself if I could even truly be considered a footballer at all.”

Roy Halladay, eight-time All-Star pitcher, killed in plane crash off Florida coast
  • Two-time Cy Young winner was piloting small aircraft when he died
  • Forty-year-old played for Blue Jays and Phillies during 15-year career

Roy Halladay, an eight-time All-Star for the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies who stood among the finest pitchers of his generation, died on Tuesday after a small aircraft he was flying crashed into the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida. He was 40.

The Pasco County sheriff’s office responded to a call of a plane crash from a private residence at 12.06pm local time to find an Icon A5 light sport aircraft registered to Halladay upside-down in shallow water about 10 miles west of St Petersburg.

Emenalo’s successor at Chelsea likely to answer to Granovskaia not Abramovich
• Management structure under review after resignation of technical director
• David Luiz set to return to full training after being dropped

Marina Granovskaia’s influence behind the scenes at Chelsea is set to increase in the wake of Michael Emenalo’s resignation, with any successor as the technical director likely to have to report to her rather than enjoying a direct line of communication with Roman Abramovich.

The Premier League champions are undertaking a review of their management structure following Emenalo’s decision to stand down, with Abramovich taking a keen interest in the process as he seeks to ensure Chelsea remain stable through another period of transition. The hierarchy are also keen to make sure Antonio Conte is not unsettled by the changes above him.

Joseph O’Brien runner defies father’s horse for remarkable Melbourne Cup win
Aidan O’Brien has hogged the headlines with his record-breaking year but insisted this outcome was ‘perfect’ and suggested he might have been less happy if his own horse had won

Joseph O’Brien has become, at 24, the youngest winning trainer in the history of the Melbourne Cup, thanks to the emphatic success of his Rekindling in the “race that stops a nation” on Tuesday. In doing so, the young man achieved what so many other trainers have repeatedly failed to do this year, beating his father in a big race, as Aidan O’Brien saddled the runner-up, Johannes Vermeer.

O’Brien Sr has hogged the headlines with his record-breaking year, saddling the winners of 27 top-class races around the world, including one at the Breeders’ Cup in California at the weekend. He has never won the Melbourne Cup and has had to endure some disappointing days at its Flemington home over the years, but insisted this outcome was “perfect” and suggested he might have been less happy if his own horse had prevailed.

Did West Ham ask Sunderland’s Ellis Short for the lowdown on David Moyes?

The man appointed to replace Slaven Bilic was deemed dated by his players when on Wearside, where he became shrouded in a cloak of negativity

Football club executives like to talk up the amount of “due diligence” they routinely undertake before hiring anyone but such boasts sometimes end up ringing hollow.

Anyone who watched Sunderland regularly last season can be forgiven for wondering precisely how much homework West Ham United did before appointing David Moyes to replace Slaven Bilic.

  • Green Bay have now lost three straight; both teams stand at 4-4

Eager to end a three-game losing streak, the Detroit Lions picked a tough place to make a stand: Lambeau Field in a Monday night game against the Green Bay Packers. Matthew Stafford delivered with his sharpest performances of the season.

Stafford passed for 361 yards and two touchdowns to Marvin Jones, and Golden Tate added 113 yards on seven catches in a 30-17 win over the offensively challenged Packers.

Bright young things need resolve to oust Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and co | Jacob Steinberg

The inaugural Next Gen ATP finals will showcase the talents of Andrey Rublev and his like but will not paint a definitive picture of the future of men’s tennis

When Andy Murray threw the US Open into mild disarray by pulling out injured two days before the start of the tournament, the hype surrounding Alex Zverez inevitably went up a notch. Much as the resurgence of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal had captured the imagination, challengers to their retro dominance looked alarmingly thin on the ground after Murray joined Novak Djokovic, Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and Stan Wawrinka on the list of absentees. Men’s tennis needed a jolt from a tyro like Zverev.

It felt as if the exciting young German’s time was coming but a fortnight after announcing himself as one of the favourites with a straight-sets dismissal of Federer in the Rogers Cup final, the buzz surrounding the fourth seed disappeared when he exited Flushing Meadows after a second-round defeat to Borna Coric. In the end a mundane tournament culminated with the familiarity of Nadal breezing to his 16th grand slam title.

Finn joined England’s lengthening list of fast-bowling absentees after tearing cartilage in his left knee batting in the nets last week, with Curran heading off Liam Plunkett and Tom Helm to replace him.

I’m not saying Trump’s election killed my mother. It just feels as if it did | Christina Patterson
Shocked by his victory my decent, kind, social democrat mum slipped on a step. A year on, a brutal new normal has emerged. And I’m glad she can’t see it

In her diary, on 9 November last year, my mother used capital letters for the first time. “DONALD TRUMP WON!” she wrote. When I next spoke to her, she was in a hospital bed. She had, she said, been in such a state of shock that she had lost her balance and tripped on the last stair. It was hours before she could crawl to the phone and call an ambulance. She had, it turned out, smashed her left hip. The next few weeks were terrible. My diary entry for 14 December is brief: “Mum died.”

For a fairer share of wealth, turn to the 13th century | Felicity Lawrence

The social contract has been broken. A modern Charter of the Forest could help to restore it

Ordinary people increasingly shut out from the means of subsistence; a rich and powerful minority privatising and extracting rent from common resources – it is 800 years this week since the sealing in London’s St Paul’s Cathedral of the Charter of the Forest and these were the grievances it addressed. Its resonances today are so strong that this ancient document from 1217 is providing the inspiration for a new political settlement at events around the country.

The Charter of the Forest, the lesser-known but equally significant twin of Magna Carta, asserted the rights of ordinary people to access from “the commons” the means for a livelihood and shelter, whether it was grazing their livestock, cutting wood for housing and fuel, fishing and hunting, creating water mills, or sharing the other resources of the forest. It restricted the rights of the king and nobles to privatise and exploit the forest while guaranteeing the rights of the commoners. It represented an early constitutional victory for ordinary people over a wealthy elite, and as such was hugely influential in the writing of other constitutions around the world. The battles in England continued of course, and waves of enclosures across Britain through subsequent centuries stripped away many of the rights.

Guns don't kill people, domestic abusers do. Take their guns away | Jill Filipovic

The Texas shooter had a history of domestic abuse. Imagine if guns were harder to get for everyone, and impossible to access legally for abusive men

It’s a sad indictment of the United States that mass shootings are no longer surprising, and the dead have to total in the double digits for gun attacks to even break through the news cycle.

The latest mass shooting, carried out in Texas by a man who should have never had a gun in the first place and who murdered 26 people in a church, comes just over a month after another shooter massacred 58 concert-goers in Las Vegas. The Texas shooter, Devin P Kelley, fits the mold of most high-profile American mass killers before him: white, angry and male. Also: a domestic abuser.

The Guardian view on Boris Johnson and Priti Patel: incompetent, insubordinate and still in office | Editorial
Theresa May’s weakness as prime minister has allowed her most ambitious ministers to do their own thing

As a prime minister drained of authority struggles to hold her party together, ambitious ministers feel increasingly able to cock a snook with impunity. This week’s rows over Boris Johnson’s dangerous handling of a disagreement with Iran, and Priti Patel’s freelance policymaking in the Middle East may seem a coincidence. But the conduct of the foreign secretary is bound together with that of the international development secretary. Both Mr Johnson and Ms Patel are able to play fast and loose because normal collective cabinet disciplines no longer apply. The prime minister is afraid to reprimand or sack. In this government it is everyone for themselves.

As the more senior and high-profile minister, one might say that Mr Johnson’s conduct is the more serious. A week ago, he told the Commons foreign affairs select committee that the British woman Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was still detained in Iran but “she was simply teaching people journalism as I understand it”. This claim was untrue, but hardliners in Iran were quick to seize on the remarks. “His statement shows that Nazanin had visited the country for anything but a holiday,” an Iranian legal website concluded, accusing her of spreading propaganda instead. As a result, Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who has already been in prison for 19 months accused of plotting to overthrow the regime, risks further charges and punishments.

I worked in parliament for 10 years. Staff need proper protection from harassment | Hannah White
An independent authority should be set up to ensure that MPs are held to account over harassment of staff and complaints have a chance of being heard fairly

You might think that MPs would be the staunchest advocates of accountability in our democracy. But the harassment crisis sweeping Westminster highlights a strange truth. In the eyes of some MPs, the very act of getting elected exempts them from being held to the normal standards of behaviour that apply to the rest of us.

The role of an MP is in many ways exceptional, and parliament’s rules – including the privilege that prevents them being prosecuted for what they say during parliamentary proceedings – are expressly designed to support this. But that doesn’t mean that the normal standards of behaviour and rules of society – including employment laws set down by MPs for the rest of us – should not apply to them.

How Trump is dismantling a pillar of the American state | Jon Michaels

Donald Trump is presiding over the most withering, devastating, and trenchant attack on the American administrative state this nation has ever known

There is no shortage of adjectives to describe the Trump presidency. Venal. Shameless. Bigoted. Impulsive. Feckless. Amid the never-ending stream of scandals and outrages, it is easy to lose sight of just what this administration is doing well – and where it is proving to be spectacularly disciplined, calculating and effective.

Boris Johnson and Priti Patel: is this the best British diplomacy has to offer? | Mary Dejevsky
With Johnson’s grave error about a British woman held in Iran and development secretary Priti Patel’s busman’s holiday in Israel, it seems the UK is losing its touch

A lot of successful diplomacy is about ambiguity, nuance, and turning blind eyes. So is a lot of failed diplomacy: when the ambiguity is not consensual, the nuance is missing, and mistakes or misjudgments are exposed to the cold hard glare of reality. Accidents, of course, happen, but the latest misadventures look embarrassingly avoidable.

The international development secretary’s busman’s holiday in Israel is the first problem. It is hard to believe that anyone, least of all Priti Patel herself, would think that combining a holiday with – it now turns out – 12, yes, 12 professional meetings was a particularly good idea.

Blue Planet II is the perfect tonic as the world turns into a horror show | Stuart Heritage

The BBC’s wildlife sequel has it all – profundity, wonder and trippy visuals. But crucially, it transports viewers to a tranquil place untouched by the awfulness above the ocean

Of course Blue Planet II is the year’s most watched TV show. That was always going to be the case. Half of Bake Off’s audience naffed off the instant it left the BBC. This year’s Strictly has been hamstrung by its colossal shrug of a lineup, while X Factor – never the most placid watch in the first place – has become Brexit-themed Kabuki theatre performed inside an exploded retina. There was never any competition.

Blue Planet II has it all. It’s expansive and profound, showing us the sort of inexplicable wonders we tend to forget about during the tedious mundanity of our everyday put-the-washing-out-and-stress-eat-a-bun lives. It’s narrated by our last true national treasure. There’s a hint of dented patriotism tucked away in there, too, given that this sort of prestigious wildlife documentary is the only remaining form of entertainment that Britain can legitimately say it is best in the world at.

The truth about the US ‘opioid crisis’ – prescriptions aren’t the problem | Marc Lewis
The overdose epidemic is unmistakable. But it’s driven by illicit use of drugs. If moral panic results in more patients in pain, that would be a disaster

The news media is awash with hysteria about the opioid crisis (or opioid epidemic). But what exactly are we talking about? If you Google “opioid crisis”, nine times out of 10 the first paragraph of whatever you’re reading will report on death rates. That’s right, the overdose crisis.

For example, the lead article on the “opioid crisis” on the US National Institutes of Health website begins with this sentence: “Every day, more than 90 Americans die after overdosing on opioids.”

Stress is bad for your health. Today's political uncertainty makes it worse

Americans are exposed to one of the most damaging sources of stress: uncertainty. The assault on our fundamental sense of security can make us sick

David Dobbs’ 13-year-old daughter has type 1 diabetes. Since 2015, the 59-year-old freelance writer and author has relied on Obamacare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), to help pay for his daughter’s insulin, blood testing supplies and other medical needs. But as the endless series of cliffhangers over the fate of the ACA continues, Dobbs says he’s starting to feel hunted.

Without insurance, diabetes treatment alone would cost his family about $20,000 to $30,000 a year, he estimates – and that’s if nothing goes wrong and prompts an astronomically expensive hospitalization.

Banning bikes from Oxford Street is a disaster for London cycling

Plans to pedestrianise one of the capital’s busiest cycling roads send the troubling message that cyclists and pedestrians can’t co-exist in an 80ft-wide street

Sadiq Khan’s proposal to ban cyclists from Oxford Street, published on Monday, is an unqualified disaster for cycling in London, perhaps the single biggest blow it has suffered in years. And he’s sending an even more dangerous signal to the rest of the country.

More than 2,000 cyclists a day, according to Department for Transport figures, use the first section proposed for pedestrianisation next year, between Selfridges and Oxford Circus. More than 5,000 a day use the section between Oxford Circus and Tottenham Court Road, which is proposed to be pedestrianised in 2019.

They warned they had even less clarity over what a final Brexit deal will look like.

The women released a Google Doc with detailed summaries on Tuesday, one day after a New Yorker investigation alleged that Weinstein had deployed an “army of spies” to monitor and silence his accusers. The Hollywood mogul, according to the report, had hired private investigators to aggressively track actors and journalists in a highly sophisticated push to prevent the publication of a litany of sexual harassment and assault allegations.

Satirical article saying Spanish riot police took cocaine lands editor in court

Police unions complain over story published by El Jueves magazine shortly after Catalonia referendum violence

The editor of a satirical magazine is due to appear in court in Spain over a tongue-in-cheek article that suggested the riot police deployed to stop the Catalan independence vote had snorted the region’s entire supply of cocaine.

On 5 October, four days after the Catalan government’s unilateral independence referendum was marred by police violence, El Jueves published a story entitled: “The continuing presence of riot police exhausts Catalonia’s cocaine reserves – Colombian cartels have warned they can’t keep up with such high demand.”

IUDs may cut risk of cervical cancer by a third, study indicates

More work is needed to understand how the contraceptive device works to protect against cancer, but researchers say discovery could be “very impactful”

Women who use intrauterine contraceptive devices may also be cutting their chances of getting cervical cancer, according to a new study.

Research from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California analysed data from several observational studies involving more than 12,000 women worldwide. The results, published in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, showed that in women who used an intrauterine device (IUD) the incidence of cervical cancer was a third lower.

Six Russians locked into 'spacecraft' for 17 days in moon flight simulation

The three men and three women are the first group in a programme which will see teams spend up to a year in isolation

Three men and three women were sealed in an artificial spacecraft unit in Moscow on Tuesday in a simulation of a 17-day flight to the moon, a preparation for long-term missions.

The experiment is the first of several in the Sirius (Scientific International Research In a Unique terrestrial Station) programme, which over the course of five years will gradually increase the isolation experiment to 365 days.

Delhi doctors declare pollution emergency as smog chokes city

Levels of airborne pollutants are off the scale in parts of India’s capital with effects likened to smoking 50 cigarettes a day

A public health emergency has been declared by doctors in Delhi as air quality in the world’s most polluted capital city plunged to levels likened to smoking at least 50 cigarettes in a single day.

Slow winds and colder temperatures have been blamed for a surge in airborne pollutants beyond what instruments in the city could measure with some recording an Air Quality Index (AQI) maximum of 999.

Mexican troops waging war on drug gangs not punished for rights abuses – report

Research shows most abuses go unsolved and unpunished despite reforms letting civilian authorities investigate and prosecute such crimes

The vast majority of human rights abuses allegedly committed by soldiers waging Mexico’s war on drug gangs go unsolved and unpunished despite reforms letting civilian authorities investigate and prosecute such crimes, a report said Tuesday.

The Washington Office on Latin America study, described as the first comprehensive analysis of military abuse investigations handled by the Attorney General’s Office, found there were just 16 convictions of soldiers in the civilian judicial system out of 505 criminal investigations from 2012 through 2016, a prosecutorial success rate of 3.2%.

Polygamist sect could lose its grip on tiny Utah community in landmark vote

Countrol of Hildale could pass from an insular group run by a so-called prophet from a prison cell as ‘outsiders’ run for office for the first time

A tiny group of voters could deliver one of the most significant results in local US elections on Tuesday when ballots are counted in a far-flung town run by members of a polygamist sect under the control of a so-called prophet from a prison cell.

For the first time in its troubled history, Hildale, a speck in the wilderness on the Utah-Arizona border, has candidates running for mayor and town council seats who are not associated with the local fundamentalist religious sect, currently run by notorious convicted child rapist Warren Jeffs.

Scotland to pardon gay men with historical convictions

Nicola Sturgeon offers apology in Holyrood to thousands of men prosecuted for having sex under old laws

Thousands of gay men in Scotland prosecuted for having sex will be automatically pardoned in a new bill that will also allow many to get previous convictions removed from their records.

The bill will pardon men who were convicted under Scotland’s anti-gay legislation, which remained on the statute book until 1981, 14 years after homosexuality was decriminalised in England and Wales.

Syria signs Paris climate agreement and leaves US isolated

Syria’s decision means America will be the only country outside the landmark deal if it follows through with Donald Trump’s vow to leave

Syria has decided to sign the Paris agreement on climate change, the world’s final functioning state to do so. The surprise decision, taken amid a brutal civil war in the country, will leave the US as the only country outside the agreement if it follows through on President Donald Trump’s vow to leave.

Syria’s decision brings to 197 the number of nations signed up to the landmark 2015 pact on global warming, the first in more than 20 years of UN negotiations to bind both developed and developing countries to a clear limit on temperature rises.

Foreign policy mistakes betray lack of a firm hand at No 10

Priti Patel and Boris Johnson’s errors add to impression that UK is a country adrift when it comes to diplomatic matters

Strong British prime ministers, such as Margaret Thatcher, Harold Macmillan and Tony Blair – to the frustration of Whitehall and the Foreign Office – frequently commandeered UK foreign policy, leading to inevitable inquests about the mistakes made owing to either secretive or informal policy-making.

David Cameron tried to rectify the danger of disjointed government by establishing the National Security Council, a formalisation of the Whitehall foreign policy process.

Bids are in for Amazon's HQ2. Now the contest begins – but will it be worth it?

US cities from Tucson to Atlanta have been vying to host the e-tailing giant’s new mega-complex. Few seem to have considered what they will get in return

The deadline has passed, but the competition has just begun. Since early September, US cities have been promoting their attributes, beautifying their reputations and putting on elaborate displays of civic seduction – all in an effort to convince Jeff Bezos and his team at Amazon to select them as the site of the e-tailing behemoth’s second headquarters.

Tucson sent a 21ft cactus. New York lit up the Empire State Building in the brand’s shade of orange. The mayor of the Atlanta suburb of Stonecrest said his city would use 345 acres of industrial land to create an entirely new city called Amazon.

Virginia governor election to offer sketch of America's post-Trump landscape

The state has not elected a Republican for statewide office since 2009 but Democrat Ralph Northam has made heavy weather against Ed Gillespie

Donald Trump is not on the ballot in Virginia. He hasn’t campaigned in the state and is out of the country on election day, but his presence is unmistakable as voters head to the polls on Tuesday.

Virginia’s gubernatorial election is the first major statewide race since Trump’s 2016 victory and the race has become a Rorschach blot for those trying to determine the new contours of the American political landscape.

How to sell a country: the booming business of nation branding

These days, every place in the world wants to market its unique identity – and an industry has sprung up to help put them on the map. By Samanth Subramanian

Lipetsk is already on the map: right there, on page 23 of the Collins World Atlas, a region of 1.2 million people, dead south from Moscow and not far from the border with Ukraine. But it’s not really on the map: it doesn’t feature in the slim mental atlas most of us carry in our heads; no one we know takes holidays there, and it doesn’t appear in our newspapers. Even in Russia, people may fail to place it. In September, when Natasha Grand was passing through Moscow on her way back from Lipetsk, she told a Russian acquaintance where she’d been. “I don’t even know where Lipetsk is”, he replied, only partly in jest. Some Russians confuse it with Vitebsk, which is in Belarus.

This is why Natasha Grand was going to Lipetsk, though: to define its brand, to mould its image, to put it on the metaphorical map. Natasha and her husband, Alex, are the founders of a London firm called Institute for Identity (Instid for short), which works with the governments of cities, regions and nations. Instid develops strategies to brand places, and although a part of this involves burnishing tourism – coining a tagline, say, or producing a suite of logos for travel literature –the Grands are after deeper rewards. They believe they can fix upon, and excavate, a place’s very identity – or at least an identity, something that can guide a government in figuring out how to rise in the esteem of its neighbours, how to allocate its resources, how best to compose the face it presents to the world.

The graduates training as prison officers: 'People think we just turn keys and shout orders'

These are volatile times for prisons in England and Wales, with overcrowding and record levels of violence. Can a new scheme that aims to do what Teach First did in schools change things from the inside?

Less than a month after Jack started his job, he walked in on a man slashing his arm with a razor. Jack is 23, with a degree in arts and sciences from University College London. He is also a prison officer at Brixton prison.

“I had a good childhood and upbringing. I’ve never come into contact with people like this before,” he says, gazing around the prison wing at the prisoners shouting across the landings and hovering nearby, in vigilant groups. “When I told my family and friends I wanted to be a prison officer, they were shocked and horrified. Mostly, they were worried about my safety.”

'We fear for our lives': how rumours over sugar saw troops kill 10 people in Ethiopia | Tom Gardner

A brutal crackdown on protest and the return of soldiers to the streets of Oromia region has fuelled growing anger and frustration with central government

It began with a rumour. On 25 October, residents of Ambo, 120km west of the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, heard word on social media that a shipment of smuggled sugar was due to pass through town.

“Sugar is so expensive now, the price has tripled,” explains 18-year-old Israel, a first-year undergraduate at Ambo University. “And they’re exporting it to other parts of the country but the people here don’t have any. It’s not fair.”

Tate Modern to show Soviet propaganda art by Aleksandr Deineka

Studies for intended murals in the USSR pavilion at 1937 World Fair in Paris go on display in the UK for the first time

Three paintings of proud Russians marching with unrestrained joy during what was the height of Joseph Stalin’s purges have travelled to the UK for the first time.

The paintings by the leading Soviet realist Aleksandr Deineka have been lent to Tate Modern by the state art gallery in Perm, eastern Russia, for a London show exploring the visual history of Russia and the Soviet Union in the first half of the 20th century.

Are we happier after the Brexit vote? Only in England, official figures claim

ONS detects small rise in England for life satisfaction, wellbeing and happiness but Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland stay flat

The UK has become a happier place since the Brexit vote, according to official figures, but the country’s bonhomie is entirely driven by an uptick in England’s mood as wellbeing in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland stayed flat.

Key barometers of happiness and wellbeing measured by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed small improvements over the year to the end of June – the first 12-month period since the EU referendum.

My travels in white America – a land of anxiety, division and pockets of pain

This summer, Gary Younge took a trip from Maine to Mississippi to find out what has brought the US to this point. From the forgotten poor to desperate addicts, their whiteness is all some of them have left – and that makes fertile ground for the far right

Jeff Baxter’s enduring memory, from childhood, is the glow. Coming down over the hill overlooking the coke plant in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, the molten iron would make itself known – both as a vision and an aspiration. “It’s like the sun landed there,” says Baxter, a burly, bearded retiree, who achieved his boyhood dream of becoming a steelworker.

Today, the plant, like the one Baxter worked in for 30 years, stands derelict – a shell that represents a hollowing out not just of the local economy but of culture and hope – as though someone extinguished Baxter’s sun and left the place in darkness. Buildings in the centre of town that were once testament to the industrial wealth produced here stand abandoned. More than 40% of the population now live below the poverty line; 9.1% are unemployed.

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

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

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

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

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

In pictures: Colombia’s land battles shatter the peace in Cauca Valley

A green-and-red flag flies over a cluster of bamboo and tarpaulin tents on the frontline of an increasingly deadly struggle for land and the environment in Colombia’s Cauca Valley.

It is the banner for what indigenous activists are calling the “liberation of Mother Earth”, a movement to reclaim ancestral land from sugar plantations, farms and tourist resorts that has gained momentum in the vacuum left by last year’s peace accord between the government and the leftwing guerrillas who once dominated the region – ending, in turn, the world’s longest-running civil war.

'The threats continue?’: murder of retired couple chills fellow activists in Turkey

The killing of two activists who successfully campaigned to shut down a mine has shocked environmentalists in Turkey who fear their deaths will embolden others to kill to protect their profits

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

Cedar branches whisper in the Anatolian breeze. Twigs crunch underfoot. A truck rumbles from a distant marble quarry. The crack of a hunter’s rifle echoes through the forest.

The sounds of tranquility and violence intermingle at the remote hillside home of Aysin and Ali Büyüknohutçu, the Turkish beekeepers and environmental defenders whose murder in Finike earlier this year has sent a chill through the country’s conservation movement.

UK mining firm in court over claims it mistreated environmental activists

Peruvian lawsuit in London claims Xstrata should be liable for alleged police violence against demonstrators near Tintaya mine

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

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

Protecting forest dwellers goes hand in hand with protecting forests, Whitehall told

Indigenous community leaders are urging the UK government to do more to protect the forest dwellers who defend rainforests from illegal loggers

Activists have marched through Whitehall to urge the UK government to give more support to environmental defenders who risk their lives protecting rainforests, rivers and the climate.

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

2017 on course to be deadliest on record for land defenders

Deaths of environmental activists locked in conflict with mining, logging and agricultural companies across three continents has passed 150

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

The number of people killed this year while defending their community’s land, natural resources or wildlife has passed 150 – meaning 2017 is on course to be the deadliest year on record.

Environmental activists, wildlife rangers and indigenous leaders are locked in fierce conflicts with mining, logging and agricultural companies in hundreds of places around the world. The Guardian is working with watchdog Global Witness to record all the deaths in 2017, and this week that figure reached 153 with a spate of killings across three continents.

Protect indigenous people to help fight climate change, says UN rapporteur

World leaders must do more to defend custodians of natural world whose lives are at risk from big business, says UN rapporteur Victoria Tauli-Corpuz

Global leaders must do more to protect indigenous people fighting to protect their land and way of life if the world is to limit climate change, according to the UN special rapporteur Victoria Tauli-Corpuz.

Speaking ahead of key climate talks in Bonn next month she urged politicians to recognise that indigenous communities around the world were the most effective custodians of millions of hectares of forest “which act as the world’s lungs”.

'Our desire for goods is at the heart of this': Why Bruce Parry wants us all to live more sustainably

In his new documentary, the explorer joins Borneo’s Penan tribe to see what the world’s indigenous people can teach us about our own survival and that of the planet

Bruce Parry has made a career out of going native. The Royal Marine-turned-celebrity explorer may not yet be as fully-fledged an institution as David Attenborough, but if the British public were to nominate anyone to paddle up a crocodile-infested creek, tuck into a wriggling dinner or liberate their mind with shamanistic drugs, Parry would surely rank near the top.

So it is worthy of note that this affable and – until now – mainstream film-maker has been forced to part ways with the BBC for his latest project, a documentary that stresses environmental defence begins on the home front.

Rupert Murdoch's media empire may not last his lifetime | Nils Pratley

Disney did not buy 21st Century Fox’s film and TV operations but other bidders will surely circle. Is Murdoch now a seller, not a buyer?

It used to be said that Rupert Murdoch’s media empire would not survive intact beyond the founder’s lifetime. Now, it seems, it may not get that far.

The stunning news is that Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox held talks with Disney about a sale of the bulk of its business – the movie studio, TV production and the international operations including the 39% stake in Sky in the UK. All that would remain would be Fox’s broadcast network and its news and sports assets in the US – a substantial operation in its own right, but not the stuff of empires.

How to fight a naked photo leak: Sia’s approach is just one of a few options

Faced with pictures being sold to the highest bidder, the singer published them herself on Twitter. It’s one way to go – but is it the best?

If nude pictures of me were ever published – on either a plucked-chicken or Mr Tumnus the Faun fetish website, I suggest, depending at which stage of the depilation cycle I had been caught – I would probably scream loudly and try to run in 14 directions at once before calling a lawyer so that he could charge me money to tell me that it’s the internet and nothing can be done but change my name and never take my clothes off anywhere ever again.

Rapper Meek Mill sentenced to up to four years in jail

The musician faces prison for violating the terms of his parole following two arrests

Meek Mill has been sentenced to between two and four years in prison for violating his parole with two arrests, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer: one for fighting and another for reckless driving.

The Philadelphia rapper – real name Robert Williams – has been on parole since autumn 2009, following a spell in prison on drugs and weapons charges. In March this year, the 30-year-old was arrested after a fight in St Louis airport and in August he was arrested on a charge of reckless driving. Although both charges were later dropped, the judge said the arrests violated Mill’s parole. He was immediately taken into custody.

Hans Schäfer obituary
Key member of West Germany’s first World Cup-winning side who went on to captain his country in the following two tournaments

The footballer Hans Schäfer, who has died aged 90, played for West Germany in three World Cups – in 1954, 1958 and 1962 – earning a winner’s medal in the first of them and captaining the side to the semi-finals and then the quarter-finals in the next two.

Regarded as one of his country’s greatest wingers, Schäfer was also a significant goalscorer, particularly admired for his long shots. His four goals in the finals in Switzerland were a key factor in West Germany’s 1954 World Cup triumph, which was sealed with a victory against much-fancied Hungary in what was one of the best matches in World Cup history.

The last thing you'll ever hear: what is the world's best deathbed music?

The makers of a new show about the perfect musical farewell turned up a lot of names, from Celine Dion to U2 to Susan Boyle. But there was one clear favourite: the light-filled music of Estonia’s Arvo Pärt

Why is there so little music for the dying? Maybe we’re shy of these fragile moments, feeling they’re too intimate to intrude upon with any extraneous sounds. But a deathbed doesn’t need to be hushed. French monks at Cluny in the 11th century practised extensive dying rituals, singing Gregorian chant for as long as required. Sometimes the chanting went on for weeks. In a 21st-century parallel, Rufus Wainwright described how his whole family sang to his mother Kate McGarrigle as she breathed her last. “One of the nurses said this could go on for four days,” he recalled, “and we had already exhausted the back catalogue.”

Matthew Lenton is the director of Vanishing Point, the Glasgow theatre company whose new co-production with Scottish Ensemble explores the role of music in end-of-life care. “I haven’t died yet,” he says, “so I don’t know whether the idea that music helps you transcend – well, I don’t know whether it’s valid or bollocks, just a romanticisation of what happens when we die. But there’s something intriguing in it.”

Moving day: how to make it work on a budget

Moving day doesn’t have to cost the earth. We asked a serial mover for tips and tricks

In 10 years, I’ve moved over 10 times.

Elena Ferrante's Naples – a photo essay

We follow in the (fictional) footsteps of the heroines of My Brilliant Friend and its sequels, into the alleyways, gritty apartment blocks and piazzas of this energetic and fascinating city

Lenù and Lila, the fictional protagonists of Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels, forge their friendship in a deprived area of Naples, just east of the cacophonous central station. The books follow the girls’ fraught relationship as they navigate the distinct social and economic divides of the city, both railing against and succumbing to the expectations of women as they struggle to be defined by something other than the violence and poverty of their post-war upbringing.

The 1917 Russian Revolution: then and now – in pictures

The events of 1917 changed the course of history in Russia and indeed the rest of the world. But as these remarkable pictures show, pockets of Russia’s two largest cities have endured almost unchanged through a century of revolution and the fall, rise, and fall of empire

The Russian Revolution consisted of two revolutions in 1917 that ended Tsarist rule and eventually replaced it with a communist state. The first revolution was mainly centred in Petrograd (now St Petersburg) and overthrew Tsar Nicholas II. The second revolution was led by Vladimir Lenin and his Bolshevik party. It overthrew the provisional government and established communism.

The Afghan diaspora – in pictures

For the past four years, Dutch photographer Joël van Houdt has been documenting the journeys of Afghan refugees around the world. In Afghanistan, there is a dearth of information about the reality of the refugee experience. Van Houdt moved to Kabul in 2010 and witnessed the soaring optimism created by the US surge in which money and human resources were pumped into the beleaguered state. By the time he left in 2015, the optimism had turned to utter hopelessness. The question his Afghan friends most routinely asked him was how to leave the country.

These photographs are from an exhibition simultaneously displayed in the offices of the Guardian in London and on blast walls in the centre of Kabul
