Segundo os Bombeiros, uma vítima foi localizada na embarcação, elevando para sete o número de mortos no acidente. Ainda há cinco desaparecidos.

As seis outras vítimas foram encontradas na sexta. Nove sobreviventes foram resgatados. De acordo com a Marinha, a embarcação "Lucas Mar" estava a uma profundidade de oito metros. Ainda não foi confirmado se há outros sobreviventes ou vítimas no barco.

O outro barco, chamado "Guto 1", foi achado ainda na sexta. Ao todo, as duas embarcações levavam 21 tripulantes. 

As buscas foram reiniciadas na manhã deste sábado e contam com o apoio de seis embarcações, uma aeronave, mergulhadores e do navio-patrulha "Guaporé".

As causas do naufrágio ainda são desconhecidas, mas os sobreviventes relataram aos bombeiros que chovia forte e o mar estava agitado no horário próximo ao do naufrágio.

Apesar do mar agitado, parte dos sobreviventes seguiu a nado até a orla e na beira-mar receberam os primeiros atendimentos.

Come dormire meglio e senza dolori (grazie all’uso strategico dei cuscini)

La scienza ci dice che dovremmo dormire tra le sette e le nove ore a notte, ma moltissime persone non raggiungono l’obiettivo. Peccato, perché il sonno regala benefici incredibili per la salute: può aiutare a perdere peso, a migliorare la memoria e ci rende più felici. Ma a volte ci si ritrova a letto con qualche dolore che ci impedisce di prendere sonno. Oppure si hanno difficoltà ad addormentarsi o svegliarsi.

Marr has described Call the Comet as his form of “magic realism”, using dystopian imagery to reference big issues of the day. It is released on 15 June on New Voodoo.

You were working on A Different Gun, a song about the 2016 terrorist attack in Nice, when the Manchester Arena bombing happened…
I’d been trying to musically create the collective shock and suspension [of Nice]… then Manchester happened, which was fucking horrible. [Canadian band] Broken Social Scene wanted me to play with them the next day in tribute. I was so shocked, I didn’t think I could do it [Marr eventually did]. A Different Gun was about having the skill to balance such tragedy with a rock song, and it took me a while wondering whether I had that skill. The song focuses on coming together – how we feel as humans when we’re completely lost, and trying to help each other out.

The asteroid rush sending 21st-century prospectors into space
A race is on to mine billions of dollars in resources from the solar system’s asteroids, fuelling our future among the stars

In an industrial park in San Jose, California, Grant Bonin is holding what looks like the end of a metal water bottle. It is the casing, he jokes, of his company’s “flying steam kettle”: a propulsion system for small spacecraft that uses super-hot water vapour, heated to 1,000C (1,832F), to produce thrust. The company has sold about 40 to date. “It comes right out of the hole,” explains Bonin, who is the chief technology officer of Deep Space Industries (DSI).

It is literally rocket science, but the ultimate aim of Bonin’s startup is even more audacious: mining asteroids. No private company has even got close to one. One of the main reasons asteroids will be mined in the future, so the thinking goes, is for the water locked in their clay deposits – and one of the chief uses of that water is likely to be as propellant for spacecraft. Probes and other spacecraft will be able to refuel in space either directly with water, or the hydrogen and oxygen that can be created from it, enabling them to zip around merrily anywhere they want with no end to their useful life. But before the idea of a solar system dotted with gas stations is realised, what is needed are more spacecraft that can actually run on water, which is where selling flying steam kettles comes in.

Anthony Scaramucci: 'I’m in the game for a fight. I love the fight'

The former White House communications director on his 11 days in the Trump administration, why the president ‘is like a human Pac-Man’ and whether he has any regrets

“He is,” one of Anthony Scaramucci’s colleagues tells me when I arrive at his office, “about as politically incorrect a person as you are ever likely to meet.” I think she means this as a compliment; it’s hard to say. I turn to Scaramucci. Would he agree?

“Donald Trump,” he suggests, “is probably slightly less politically correct than me. But I mean, why would you be politically correct? It’s very boring.” Scaramucci slides a hand into his suit trouser pocket. “You know what I am? And don’t forget this about me. I’m a member of the green party.”

Édouard Louis: 'I want to be a writer of violence. The more you talk about it, the more you can undo it'

His debut about his violent childhood was an international sensation. Now the French author has written a novel about being brutally assaulted

In the lonely, shell-shocked days after Édouard Louis was raped and almost killed in his Paris flat in 2012 – as he sat through tense interviews with police officers or scrubbed his home to get rid of his attacker’s smell – he felt the urgent need to write about it. “I had told the police my story,” says the now 25-year-old author of three novels who has been hailed as one of the most important literary voices of his generation. “But when I read the police report, I didn’t recognise my own experience at all, because it had been filtered by police language – homophobic, racist language. I wanted to reclaim my story.”

The resulting novel, History of Violence, became a bestseller in France, was adapted for stage and film, translated across the world and is published in English this month in a translation by Lorin Stein. It tells the story of the Christmas Eve when Louis was on his way home from a celebration dinner and met “Reda”, a young Kabyle Algerian man he eventually invited up to his flat. They spent the night together, but at around 6am, Reda pulled out a gun, raped him and tried to strangle him to death.

Frank Tallis: ‘I often feel when I write fiction that I am just doing psychology in a different way’
The psychotherapist and fiction writer on the importance of sci-fi and Freud, and the connection between love and madness

Frank Tallis is a novelist, nonfiction writer and clinical psychologist. He has held lecturing posts in clinical psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry and neuroscience at King’s College London. He has written horror fiction, a series of detective novels featuring the fictional detective Max Liebermann and four books about psychology, including Changing Minds, a history of psychotherapy. The Incurable Romantic, an account – told through case histories of his patients – of a life spent investigating obsessive love, is published on 7 June (Little Brown).

This is the second book you have written about the nature of love. What draws you to the subject?
Its universality – and the fact that falling in love is the one experience that most people have in their lives where they can say, for a short period of time, they have flirted with madness. All of us can empathise with this strange state, where we begin to lose touch with reality and think in an entirely different way.

Squonkers, drippers and cloud chasers: ?the rise of vape culture

Vaping started as a way to stop smoking. So how did it become an alternative scene with its own lingo, tricks and superstars?

Charlie Rabone is explaining the conditions required for the Os, or vapour rings, he blows. “You have to think about the wind, the climate – all sorts,” says the 20-year-old from Stockport. He wears a sweatshirt and a trucker cap from Humble Juice Co, a US manufacturer whose Hop Scotch vape liquid tastes of coffee, vanilla and butterscotch. “The air has to be super-dead,” he adds. “Even the heat from radiators can ruin it.”

He raises his Asmodus Minikin 2 “mod” to his lips and inhales. The battery-powered device, which costs £90 and is the size of a pack of cards, heats a coil inside the rebuildable dripping atomiser (RDA), which screws on to the top of the mod. Rabone has dripped juice on to the cotton wick around the coil. When he breathes in, the liquid turns to vapour. After a couple of seconds, he cocks his head and exhales. Pressing his mouth into an oval, Rabone forms a vapour ring before raising his left hand and pushing it from behind. The ring grows and accelerates. “I can do a jellyfish as well,” he says. “You blow an ‘O’ and keep a bit of vape in your mouth, and then blow that out into a little cloud, which looks like a ghost. Then it goes into the ‘O’ and wraps around it to look like a jellyfish. People can do mad things.”

It’s not just bikini parades that have had their day. So has Miss America | Barbara Ellen
Even with the best will, you can’t reform beauty contests – they just need to disappear

The bikini ban brought in by the Miss America contest manages to feel both welcome and absurd. The all-female organisers of the 97-year-old pageant are responding to #MeToo by ditching the swimwear round (four years after Miss World got rid of it). It’s being replaced by an “interactive section” where contestants explain their achievements and goals. They can also wear “whatever they want” in the eveningwear round and there will be “all female shapes and sizes”. Miss America wants to stop being viewed as a pageant, more as a competition that helps smart young women pay for college. Which sounds workable – just get back to us when the contestants are allowed to wear paper bags on their heads.

There’s been a backlash to the ban from former contestants and what one could only assume to be time-travellers from 1972, who strongly feel that women should have the right to express their inner beauty, academic brilliance and profound insights on environmental issues via the medium of the string bikini. While those running Miss America should be applauded for ignoring the naysayers, what about the biggest, most female-positive change of all – stopping Miss America altogether? In fact, ditching all beauty pageants? And I include those creepy ones where eight-year-old girls are tarted up to resemble the death masks of meth-addicted Baby Janes.

Even after the crash, voters still don’t want safe lending | Phillip Inman
A Swiss referendum on responsible banking looks likely to be defeated. And if it fails there, it would have no chance in Britain

Ten years after the financial crash, most Britons remain suspicious of calls to be adventurous with public money. Aware that the pre-2008 economy was akin to a high-wire act, they believe lapsing back into the old borrow-to-spend routine will only herald another disaster.

That’s why the chancellor, Philip Hammond, feels secure when he bats away calls to throw off his self-imposed straitjacket and lift austerity. And it’s the reason Bank of England governor Mark Carney tells us in his speeches that he’s tied the hands of bank bosses and that their institutions are safer than at any time in a generation.

Why Canadian milk infuriates Donald Trump

Trump’s latest trade war target is Canada’s protected dairy industry. But Canadians have no intention of abandoning it – because it works

In the midst of what appears to be a full-blown trade war between Canada and the US over steel and aluminum, and with Donald Trump taking his first steps on Canadian soil for the G7 summit, a familiar bugbear reappeared to haunt the negotiations.

Canada charges the U.S. a 270% tariff on Dairy Products! They didn’t tell you that, did they? Not fair to our farmers!

Do women really need to choose between motherhood and art?

If a woman feels she can’t do her work and be a mother, the problem is not motherhood: it’s her partner

The long mulled-over questions of whether a woman can be an artist, or funny, or even a human being, have been, I am happy to confirm, decidedly settled by this point in time. But what about mothers: can they be artists? This still seems a debatable issue.

In Sheila Heti’s new book, Motherhood, the narrator is a Canadian writer in her mid-30s who is ambivalent about having children: she worries that motherhood would affect her writing vocation. (Heti, as it happens, was a Canadian writer in her mid-30s when she wrote the book.) A review in the New Yorker appeared to agree with this thesis: “Writing depends on hoarding time, on putting up a boundary (often at home) between oneself and the immediate world around in order to visit a separate one in the mind. A mother must make herself always available. A writer needs to shut the door.”

One year on, Grenfell survivors’ stories rightly give shape to a painful inquiry | Jackie Long
Allowing the bereaved to take centre stage is a positive move after a traumatic 12 months

The first anniversary after any death looms large. Oddly so, perhaps, because why should that one day be any worse than the previous 364 paralysing, grief-ridden days? And yet somehow it is.

I think you can feel that sense of rising panic among some of the families. This anniversary, after all, marks not one life lost but 72. Each personal but very public too. How to navigate that after a year when the wave of sympathy has spiked and dipped? Universal horror in the early hours and days, empathy over the chaos of the relief operation and then the perhaps inevitable backlash.

S’Busiso Nkosi powers South Africa to stunning comeback win over England
• South Africa 42-39 England
• Springboks roar back from 24-3 down in thrilling first Test

Forget, for a moment, the crazy final scoreline and the inquest into a fourth successive Test defeat for an England team who cannot currently buy a victory. This was a simply wonderful rugby occasion, a triumph not merely for South Africa and their first black Test captain, Siya Kolisi, but for anyone anywhere who might have begun to wonder if the international game is losing its lustre.

It also involved one of the great sporting comebacks, South Africa somehow recovering a 24-3 deficit to put five tries past a visiting side who spectacularly hit the wall after a breathtaking first quarter. England ultimately scored five tries themselves but, having shipped nine tries against the Barbarians a fortnight ago, the final days of Paul Gustard as their defensive coach are proving grim indeed.

In most beautiful NBA finals defeat, LeBron James was never better

In carrying the Cavaliers with a broken hand, King James ensured his possible Cleveland swansong will be long remembered

In the end, he didn’t have enough. Not enough time, as the clock ran down on the third quarter and the Warriors, within reach at half-time, cruised over the horizon and into history as the NBA’s next great team. Not enough energy, as the effects of a brutal postseason, in which his ice-packed knees became authentic social media stars in their own right, at last began to tell. And not enough support, as the Cavaliers’ cavalry failed to find that extra something to help him take the series to a fifth game.

Afterward came the explanation, or the excuse, depending on how you see things: enraged at the reversed foul call and JR Smith brain fade that snatched victory from the Cavaliers’ grasp on the road in Game 1, LeBron had smashed his right hand into a locker room blackboard and “pretty much” played the final three games of the finals with it broken. These violent delights met violent ends. To his critics – and there are many of them, mostly gathered in the small slice of humanity known as “former NBA All-Stars” – the injury announcement was sour grapes, an attempt to color the Warriors’ achievement, a showy bid to make the story about him rather than them.

South Africa beat England by seven wickets in first women's ODI – as it happened

Katherine Brunt’s defiant, career-best 72 not out could not save England from a heavy defeat in the opening ODI at Worcester

Here’s the South African captain Dane van Niekerk “What can I say? It was close to a perfect performance. I couldn’t ask for better than that opening spell of bowling. We were a bit down after Katherine’s knock but I felt the wicket got a lot quicker. I felt I had to play my natural game with the bat and we had a lot of fun out there. England are a very good team and we know they’ll come back at us on Tuesday.”

Sebastian Vettel storms to Canadian F1 GP pole with Lewis Hamilton fourth
• German fastest for Ferrari, ahead of Bottas’s Mercedes
• Verstappen grabs third for Red Bull ahead of Lewis Hamilton

With pole in Montreal for so long his personal fiefdom, Lewis Hamilton was left simply unable to identify why he has finally been ousted from the top spot at the Canadian Grand Prix by his title rival Sebastian Vettel. Hamilton is ahead of the German by 14 points in the championship but, after struggling on Saturday, starting from fourth on the grid means he faces a stern test if he is not to see Vettel take a significant chunk out of his lead.

Hamilton has been on pole and won at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for the last three years and has six poles and wins at Montreal, often looking imperious at the circuit. However, this time it was Vettel who swept all before him with a pair of consummate laps to which there was no answer.

Kanye West & Kid Cudi: Kids See Ghosts review – a psychedelic return to godlike power

One week on from the underwhelming, muddled solo album Ye, West is newly galvanised by Cudi’s stoner wisdom

Christian scripture teaches that on the seventh day, God looked over the world, nodded to himself in satisfaction and settled down for a hard-earned rest. But seven days after unveiling his own imperfect creation, self-proclaimed god Kanye West has had no time for slumber. Kids See Ghosts, West’s joint project with Kid Cudi, has arrived just one week on from his polarising, half-baked eighth solo album Ye – the worst record in his previously unimpeachable catalogue.

Zeus chained Prometheus to a rock to have his liver pecked out. Kali trampled Shiva while wearing a skirt of human arms and severed heads. Now here comes West, whose rollout of Ye was punctured by his courting of America’s grim forces and offensive commentary on the history of slavery. The controversies that eternally follow West had always dissolved when it came to music-making – the component of his legacy that will endure long after the reality TV shows are pulled from the air and the pageantry around him turns to dust – but Ye suggested that even the music had lost its godlike vision and reach.

Taylor Swift review – as stadium-sized shows go, it's something of a triumph

Manchester Etihad Stadium
Reputation can sometimes seem boilerplate – but onstage, blowing it up into a preposterous spectacle really works

You could, if you wished, infer a great deal from the stage set of Taylor Swift’s Reputation tour. Not since the British Herpetological Society held their AGM at a local museum has Manchester seen quite so many snakes gathered together on one stage. There are films of snakes. There are films of Taylor Swift wearing clothes covered in snakes. There is a platform covered in snakes upon which dancers recline, three different giant inflatable snakes with illuminated eyes that rear up from the stages dotted around the Etihad Stadium. There is a huge skeleton of a snake attached to a wire, on which Swift flies across the arena, singing Bad Blood.

Re-possessed: exploring Hereditary and Hollywood’s love of the haunted house

From crumbling mansions to newlyweds buying a bargain fixer-upper, architecture in films holds the perfect backdrop for generational anxieties

If there’s a supernatural estate agency in the afterlife, the ghost’s dream home would probably be something like the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California. It was built in 1884 by Sarah Winchester, heiress to the rifle fortune and, legend has it, she was told by a medium that it had to accommodate the spirits of those killed by her late husband’s guns. Thus, she employed an army of builders to continually extend the house for 40 years to no particular plan. You couldn’t wish for anything spookier: stained glass, odd-shaped roofs and turrets, corridors and staircases that lead nowhere, doors that open on to nothing. It makes no sense at all.

Before you say: “Someone should make a movie out of that!” they already have. It was called Winchester. Starring Helen Mirren, it came out last year and was rubbish. But the point is, by accident or design, houses are the scariest places of all. The movies know this very well. Just as old houses are adaptable to modern lifestyles, so haunted-house stories have accommodated our generational anxieties. And just as we prefer not to think about who lived (and died) in our house before we moved in, so haunted-house movies find a way of tapping into older, deeper fears. “When we go home and shoot the bolt on the door, we like to think we’re locking trouble out,” wrote Stephen King in his book Danse Macabre. “The good horror story … whispers that we are not locking the world out; we are locking ourselves in – with them.”

Jorja Smith: 'Did Amy have a hit with Frank? I haven’t had one and I’m not bothered'

The Brit-winning, Stormzy-collaborating soul star has conquered the shops of Walsall. With the release of her debut Lost & Found, she sets her sights on the world

Due to what she will only describe as “a sewage problem”, Jorja Smith urgently needs to move house. Her requirements – two bedrooms, a nice bathroom, presumably the absence of sewage – are generally modest, but being a pop star she will also need space for her “two huge pink velvet sofas”. She thinks she may have found somewhere in west London: it will be the 20-year-old singer’s fourth London home since moving down from the West Midlands just two years ago. “South London was good,” she explains, “but I always get recognised. And I’m not even that famous yet.”

STOP RIGHT THERE. Two big words in that last statement: “that” and “yet”. The former is an acknowledgment that while Smith is not in fame’s Bieber/Grande/Madeley strata, she’s far from unknown: tracks such as powerful social commentary Blue Lights are all over the radio, the likes of Drake and Stormzy have made music with her, and she enjoyed a big primetime moment at this year’s Brits, where she won the critics’ choice award. As for the fact that she is not that famous yet, her debut album might see to that: a mix of modern jazz, contemplative soul and dancehall so perfect for summer evenings that B&Q should bundle it with their barbecues.

Sense8: the series finale review – sci-fi love-in is strictly for the fans

After much online outcry, the Wachowskis’ cancelled show was given a feature-length reprieve in which to tie up loose ends and wallow in schmaltz

When Sense8, a sci-fi drama by Lana and Lilly Wachowski, the directors of The Matrix, and Babylon 5 creator J Michael Straczynski, was cancelled after two seasons, there were outpourings of grief and rage from its fans. Not just because there were unanswered questions, but mainly because they had come to love the show.

The premise – strangers around the globe become emotionally linked – was an intriguing one. Its characters are diverse and it explores identity, gender, sexuality and race. This is inclusive science fiction for a modern world; sci-fi with a heart. Well, it does the international sign for heart, anyway.

'After my husband's death, my parents and I became equals'

When Rob died, it was a chance to start again with my mum and dad – and to tell them the truth about his addiction

Lessons about family rarely unfold in dramatic thunderclaps, but death has a way of clarifying what is important and what is not.

Three years ago, my husband, Rob, died unexpectedly at the age of 39. In the aftermath, I learned that what you remember of a person are not the big things. Their whole being is recalled in small gestures, memories you might not think hugely important at the time. The smell of the inside of their jacket, the frequency of their laugh.

Fit in my 40s: ‘My week as a vegan wasn’t all smoothie’ | Zoe Williams

This was probably my least healthy week since a period in adolescence when I’d buy a Marathon bar in every shop between school and home

If you want the short version of my week as a vegan: it was not good for my health. I used to think that I was already, basically, a vegan. I share their outlook on animal rights and the environment; I just happen to eat a lot of meat and cheese. I figured the meat and cheese wasn’t core to my identity, and I could easily fix it. That must be annoying for vegans: I’m sure they know we all think that. Having tried it, I realise now how hard it would be.

I had a huge hand, too, with a week of supplies from Nosh Detox – soups, smoothies, bean salads laced with the tastiest non-animal protein they could find, including a truly spooky dish of cabbage and tofu whose colouring was like the moon. I also had a gigantic, five-kilo tub of pickled vegetables, because I always do, though it turns out I only like them on top of cheese. But the real problem came with all the food I had to source and prepare myself.

The secret to... raising unentitled children

What children need most, parenting expert Kate Orson says, is a connection with their family

Beware prioritising material possessions over time spent with your child. Children are like sponges and will soak up what’s around them, so your actions are important. If you want – and get – stuff all the time, they will expect that, too. Spend time with them, listen to them, talk to them. Help your child feel secure.

Understand that there’s a difference between wanting and needing. What your child needs most is a connection with you. They need that far more than the latest gizmo they say they want. It’s up to you to gently show them that. Children are not born entitled or spoilt. If they are, there’s often a lack of emotional connection with the important people in their lives.

A letter to… my gas-lighting ex

‘It is a horrible feeling to be torn between believing your partner and your own perceptions’: the letter you always wanted to write

Most human communication is based on lies. Nevertheless, most of these lies are the ones we give each other permission to tell. I ask whether you like my garish new jacket, and the very question gives you permission awkwardly to stumble through a litany of disingenuous compliments. There is little wrong with socially sanctioned exaggerations and omissions. They are part of the glue of human communication and go a long way towards ensuring we don’t spend most of our time hating each other. It is OK to lie to each other in this way. But when you start lying to someone about lying to them, it’s time to reconsider whether what you’re doing is right.

For the last few months of our relationship, you had an affair. When I asked about it, you became indignant and denied it. You told me I should seek therapy and implied that I must be mentally ill, causing me to doubt my own perceptions.

How to find your perfect summer dress

Simple? Sexy? Day-to-night? Let us help you nail that fabulous forever frock

Right, I’m here to tell you what the fashionable summer dress you need to buy this year looks like. I’m about to lay down the law on whether rose prints are more on trend than forget-me-nots, and explain whether a bell sleeve or a trumpet one will hoist you up the best-dressed lists. I’m going to map out those postcodes in which a cold shoulder is still de rigueur and those neighbourhoods in which you must switch to a kimono sleeve. And, after that, I’m going to explain how to break into your own house at the end of the night, if you are unable to take your keys out with you because they don’t fit into your on-trend miniature circular basketweave clutch bag.

Or none of the above, actually. I’m here to help you find the perfect summer dress, which is absolutely not the same thing as the most fashionable one. The search for this dress transcends fashion for the simple reason that the perfect summer dress is an almost holy object. The days on which this piece will be worn are the most precious of the whole year, and that makes the dress itself a kind of talisman.

Au pair shortage sparks childcare crisis for families

75% slump in applications blamed on Brexit and fallout from terrorist attacks

Many families are facing a childcare crisis following a 75% slump in the number of young Europeans willing to work as au pairs, as Brexit, plus other factors such as last year’s terrorist attacks in London and Manchester, deter young people from coming to the UK.

May, June and early July are when most au pair placements are arranged, before the beginning of the school term in September, but Guardian Money has learned that some agencies are unable to find a single young European for British families to even interview.

Kara Eastman, a progressive who campaigned on a “Medicare for all” healthcare system and free college, stunned Washington Democrats last month when she beat Brad Ashford, a moderate former congressman backed by the party, in the primary for a Nebraska House race. Her upset victory was cheered as a resounding win for the activist left – and a repudiation of centrist politics.

The 'dark fleet': Global Fishing Watch shines a light on illegal catches

Low light imaging data being used to expose unregulated and unreported fishing on the high seas

New data is being used to expose fleets of previously unmonitored fishing vessels on the high seas, in what campaigners hope will lead to the eradication of illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing.

Global Fishing Watch (GFW) has turned low light imaging data collected by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) into the first publicly available real-time map showing the location and identity of thousands of vessels operating at night in waters that lie beyond national jurisdiction.

Where was Melania? Who bit Beyoncé? The biggest mysteries of 2018 – so far

Detectives of the internet, unite! We’ve gathered some of this year’s most puzzling conundrums

It has been 74 days, 14 minutes and 23 seconds since the world first learned that someone once bit Beyoncé. However, despite the internet’s best efforts to discover the culprit, the mystery of #WhoBitBeyoncé remains stubbornly unsolved.

It’s not just Beyoncé’s biter befuddling us all: we’re less than halfway through the year but already 2018 has raised more questions than it has answered. Here are some of the weirdest unsolved mysteries of the year so far.

10 classic European islands on a budget

With sunshine, superb beaches and charming towns, Ibiza, Mallorca, the famous Greek islands et al often come with A-list prices. Here’s how to enjoy them without spending too much cash

Even the epic photos don’t quite prepare you for Santorini, with its encircling black cliffs. The island was formed by an enormous volcanic eruption in 1600 BC, and the subsequently collapsing caldera formed these sheer faces. Its extraordinary landscapes justly attract hordes of visitors and, unsurprisingly, Santorini, or Thira in Greek, is one of the pricier Greek isles.
Stay The island’s volcanic soil produces renowned wine, and at Caveland caves dug from the volcanic pumice to be used as wine cellars now provide fun and stylish accommodation. Dorm beds cost from €23, doubles (book ahead: they sell out quickly) from €70.
Hang out Atlantis in the north-western town of Oia may just be the best bookshop on the planet; it certainly has one of the best settings, overlooking the sea in this whitewashed old town. Born through passion, and a bit of whimsy, it now runs food, film and literary festivals through the year.
Eat Naoussa calls itself a traditional taverna, although its prices are a little high. The food is good, though, and factor in the location (its terrace is a good place to watch the sun set over the caldera) and it’s a bargain (main courses from €10.50).
Day trip Boat trips run to Thirasia, another sliver of the island before its eruption, on the other side of the caldera. If you can, bring a moped, stay the night and explore what Santorini must have been like 30 years ago (there are a few old-style rooms to let from €40 for a double).
Way to go There is an airport (served by easyJet and Norwegian from Gatwick), but though it’s a longish ferry trip from Athens (6-9 hours, greeceferries.com, from €40), nothing beats entering the caldera by sea. It does leave you with the problem of making your way up the cliffs on the switchback road. A donkey ride is traditional, if not exactly comfortable.

Audio is publishing’s new star as sales soar across genres
Top thriller writer opts to publish solely in spoken-word format as demand rises

Writers are turning to the spoken word as their preferred medium, encouraged by a boom in audiobook sales that is transforming publishing.

This weekend, audio publisher Audible, owned by Amazon, released an audiobook of Andrew Motion reading 30 mostly unpublished poems as part of his memoir Essex Clay, and thriller writer Brian Freeman has given up on print entirely for his 19th novel, out out next year, which will appear only as an audiobook. “We haven’t even thought about print,” he said. Just 15 years ago, hardly any of his readers chose audio versions of his books. “Now I hear about them all the time. It made sense to do something specifically for the audio market.”

China's Beyonce: meet Wang Ju, the pop idol breaking down beauty barriers

Not considered beautiful by China’s exacting pop star standards, Wang has developed a cult following of fans who find her relatable and an inspiration

Wang Ju swaggers on stage, stepping out in front of the other female contestants competing to be China’s next pop idol. Wearing white boots and a short pink windbreaker, she leans toward the audience as she sings in English lyrics that she wrote: “You don’t have to put a ring on me. I can buy my own.”

She raps in English and Chinese as the camera pans to a crowd of mostly young women cheering. “Free your mind, fight [for] your right. Cold moonlight shines on my warrior coat. With a gorgeous attitude, my life is in my own hands.”

Why you should eat more weeds

Find the idea of eating dandelions challenging? Don’t: they are a rich source of minerals and vitamins – and our gardens are full of them

I’ve said this before, but we should eat more weeds. Perhaps it’s tiresome, but I am not giving up – because wild things are good for our health. Plus, your garden has plenty. Dandelions, for instance, are a rich source of potassium and a good source of other minerals and vitamins, including iron, magnesium, calcium and vitamins A, B and C. Your average lettuce leaf can’t compete with that.

The plant is a diuretic, hence the French name, pissenlit, from pisse-en-lit, wet the bed. Coupled with the potassium, this makes it a powerful yet gentle medicine where a diuretic may be needed. It’s also a valuable liver and kidney tonic, so great for a hangover, as well as good for all sorts of skin problems, from acne to eczema. The bitter nature of the leaves means they are great for aiding digestion.

Covering Brexit from Brussels: 'It's like a high-stakes poker game'

The Guardian’s Brussels bureau chief explains how the last 18 months have looked from the heart of European politics

Between the Guardian’s offices in Brussels, two floors above the Old Hack pub on one side of Boulevard Charlemagne and the headquarters of the European commission on the other, stand 28 EU flags, towering over the passing traffic and pedestrians. At the stroke of midnight here, on the evening of 29 March 2019, one of those fluttering flags will be lowered. My view of Jean-Claude Juncker’s hideous Berlaymont building will be a little less cluttered, and Britain will no longer be a member of the European Union.

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.

Weird World Cup beermats – in pictures

When discussing their favourite World Cup moments – Rob Green’s blunders in goal for England, John Barnes rapping – London-based graphic designers Gordon Reid and Callum Stephenson had an idea. They invited 20 of their favourite designers to celebrate the tournament’s stranger sides: the result is Weird World Cup, a collection of beermats depicting bizarre moments. “I love the World Cup because almost everyone remembers something from it. Even my mum, who hates football, remembers the Zidane headbutt,” says Stephenson. The money raised will go to the charity Football Beyond Borders, which supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. The designers, however, need to be ready to have their work obscured. “A good beermat is something you don’t really want to ruin by putting your beer on,” says Reid. “Although that ruins its one purpose.”

The beer mats are available to buy at weirdworldcup.com (20 for £5)
