A plane has been stolen from Seattle-Tacoma international airport by an airline employee and crashed, authorities have confirmed, after F-15 fighter jets were scrambled and flights grounded in a major security incident.

The plane came down on Ketron Island in the Puget Sound waterway about 25 miles south-west of the airport on Friday evening. Aerial television footage showed a fire in amongst trees.

Rising sea levels leave Belgium’s St Tropez ‘fighting for its life’

Proposed offshore island to protect a haunt of Sinatra and Dietrich would be its ruin, says long-time mayor

It is known affectionately as Belgium’s answer to St Tropez – a town once frequented by Frank Sinatra and Marlene Dietrich and which has inspired the pop art of Keith Haring and surrealism of René Magritte, who painted the walls of the town’s casino.

But now the chic, if slightly faded, seaside resort of Knokke-Heist is, in the words of its mayor, Count Leopold Lippens, in a “fight for its life”. The Flemish government, in an attempt to limit the damage to the Belgian coast from rising sea levels, has announced plans for an artificial island of 40 hectares (99 acres) 1.2 kilometres from the sandy beach, to act as a bulwark against the waves. Belgium has, until now, been slow to respond to climate change and its coast has suffered severe damage during recent storms.

How do you change the system? Four campaigners swap strategies for the good fight

On a sunny Sunday afternoon, four campaigners are swapping stories about the ways young activists are often portrayed in the media.

“I don’t want to just be a cute news story,” says Liv Cornibert, 19, who earlier this year found herself on national TV when Legally Black, the media representation campaign she co-founded, caused waves. “Often we’re presented as this bunch of kids who happened to be sitting around in someone’s bedroom, saying: ‘What shall we do today? Let’s fuck with the system.’ As if we’re Scooby-Doo and his mates.” The room bursts into laughter – as it does throughout a day filled with remarkable optimism, in spite of a political moment that is characterised by hostility and violence.

Michaela Coel: 'I was trying to be someone else and failing'

She turned her misfit years into the award-winning show Chewing Gum. Now Coel is starring in a major BBC drama – and challenging her industry to be better and braver

In a series of videos uploaded to Twitter in late June, Michaela Coel sits in her bedroom amid a sea of wigs, hair creams, wig stands and preening products. She picks them up, wig after wig, bottle after bottle, and throws them with force into a black bin liner. She is done with spending hours perfectly positioning her hair, Coel tells the camera – not just the straight hair, but the curly “mixed race” hair, too, and any notion that she should look, act, think a certain way to be attractive.

When we meet a couple of weeks later, Coel tells me that act of rebellion against Eurocentric beauty standards feels final. Before, she would switch between wigs and a buzz cut, depending on her mood. Today her hair is shaved down to a No 2, and on the set of the gal-dem-Guardian cover shoot, she’s wondering aloud whether she needs to go shorter. The makeup artist and stylist are not sure, but when Coel sees my hair (a 0.5) she decides to go for it. She whips a pair of clippers from her bag as I offer to shave her head. This is therapy for black women, she later jokes.

Summer’s hot fashion tip: get your rubber gloves on
They come in purple, orange, black lace and more – but these catwalk stalwarts are not for doing the washing-up in

This season’s It buy is not a bag, and is not weather-appropriate. Rather, it’s a pair of statement summer gloves. Black, or brightly coloured, usually in synthetic rubber or PVC, they have nothing to do with practicality – and everything to do with aesthetics.

First seen this year on Vogue’s February cover, where Nicole Kidman sported a pink pair from Italian maker Sermoneta, gloves appear twice in its September issue, the largest and most scrutinised of the year: Rihanna wears orange Prada gloves on the cover and, inside, a lace pair by Cornelia James.

'A different way of living': why writers are celebrating middle-age

Viv Albertine, Deborah Levy, Lavinia Greenlaw and Rachel Cusk are redefining life after menopause, children or divorce – and it has never looked so good

When Viv Albertine performs her 2009 song “Confessions of a Milf” live, she alternates between two voices. There’s the saccharine lisp of a brainwashed housewife chanting “home sweet home”, and there’s the raging chant of an angry punk proclaiming that “if you decide one day that you’ve had enough”, you can walk away. Though swans and seahorses mate for life, “we ain’t so nice”.

In the 70s, when Albertine performed with her punk band, the Slits, she appeared fully immersed in her performance of exuberant anger, but also strikingly unformed, too busy bouncing and shouting to hold the gaze of her audience. Then, she retained the vulnerability of her younger self, but there was a steeliness underlying it. Now she stares out at us, no longer interested in hiding.

Mohsin Hamid: ‘It’s important not to live one’s life gazing towards the future’
The Pakistani novelist, who has lived in the UK and US, has been well placed to write such prescient books as Exit West and The Reluctant Fundamentalist. But what he wants his next novel to do, he says, may be beyond him

ohsin Hamid appears to have a preternatural ability to summon up the spirits of his time. He finished writing his latest novel, Exit West, which was published early last year and shortlisted for the Man Booker prize, well before Trump and Brexit brought questions of borders and national identity to the forefront of the global narrative. The novel was in part a response to the migrant crisis that was unfolding in various corners of the world as Hamid was writing, but it also predicted with almost uncanny prescience the rise of nativist paranoia and racial intolerance, which have become such features of life in 2018.

The novelist Kamila Shamsie, a friend of Hamid, told me another story about his proleptic powers. “On September 9 or 10, 2001, I was having dinner with Mohsin in London and he told me about the book he was working on,” Shamsie said. “It was about a young Pakistani man doing very well in the corporate world in New York. Despite all his success, one day he found himself listening closely to a speech by an extremist Muslim – it wasn’t the religious content of the man’s words that caught his attention, but the political content. I saw Mohsin again on September 12, 2001. ‘Mohsin, your novel… ?’ I said. ‘I don’t know,’ he replied. ‘I think I have to go on writing it.’ ‘Of course you do,’ I said.”

Could Beirut soon become the new cat capital of the Middle East? – video

US PGA Championship 2018: day three – live!

This report now goes into a state of suspended animation. We’ll be back with information on third-round tee times, once they’ve made the cut and sorted out the groupings. Meanwhile here’s how the top of the leader board looks at the halfway stage ...

-10: Woodland
-9: Kisner
-8: Koepka, Fowler
-7: D Johnson, Schwartzel, Pieters, Lowry
-6: Stone, Perez, Thomas
-5: Scott, Molinari, Cantlay, Rahm, Kokrak, Suri
-4: Rose, Z Johnson, Woods, Simpson, Cink

Cink bogeys the last, unable to get up and down from the rough to the right of the green. That’s a 69, and he drops back to -4. There are a few stragglers left out there, but nobody that’ll bother the upper echelons of the leaderboard. So our minds turn to round three.

England v India: second Test, day three – live!

63rd over: England 258-5 (Bairstow 79, Woakes 66) Ishant replaces Shami from the MCC end and misses his length, punished by Bairstow who slaps him to the rope at point to show who is boss. In fairness to the quick, once again he bounces back later in the over, beating the well-set YJB who misses a cut too close to his body. Lead = 151.

“Loved your willingness to do serious porridge rather than drop Broad,” emails Brian Withington. “Begs the question of what you would contemplate to keep Jimmy Anderson in the team - who else commands such devotion?”

62nd over: England 254-5 (Bairstow 75, Woakes 66) Woakes decides to punch the Indian bruise as well, launching Ashwin over midwicket with a lofted sweep (shall we say) that bounces twice before trickling into the rope. Next up he goes again, smacking a delivery off the back foot through cover point. That’s confidence. He loves this ground. The England 250 also up.

How the NFL stumbled its way into becoming Trump's top target

The league thinks it can appease the president on player protests, but Trump’s latest broadside makes it clear that’s not the case

It’s funny. It’s almost as if the president wants people talking about a handful of NFL players taking a knee at the start of a preseason football game rather than, say, anything else currently going on in the United States. On Thursday night, a couple of Miami Dolphins players took a knee during the national anthem as part of an ongoing symbolic protest against social injustice and police brutality. Once again, president Donald Trump went on Twitter to denounce the players and demand that the NFL put a stop to it.

The NFL players are at it again - taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love......

Toronto Wolfpack ready to sink their teeth into chance to create history

Rugby league’s transatlantic trailblazers begin their bid for a place in the Super League against Halifax on Sunday

After 18 relatively trouble-free months the biggest challenge in Toronto Wolfpack’s short history begins this weekend. Rugby league’s transatlantic trailblazers have made light work of the professional game so far since their inaugural game in February 2017; winning League One at a canter last season, before finishing top of the sport’s second tier, the Championship, this time around.

In any other sport a record of 21 wins from 23 games would be enough to ensure promotion but Toronto now head into the Qualifiers, the eight-team mini-league featuring Super League’s bottom four and the Championship’s leading quartet which will determine the final four places in the top flight in 2019.

Dele Alli gets Tottenham off to a winning start against Newcastle

In Mauricio Pochettino’s native Argentina interest rates have been held at an emergency 40% since May and, the plummeting peso has prompted the government to request an emergency $50bn dollar loan from the International Monetary Fund.

It all rather makes the UK’s own travails seem a bit tame but has failed to prevent Tottenham’s manager saying he feels “sorry for the English people” as Brexit beckons. Warming to his theme, Pochettino subsequently blamed the leave vote for a fall in the pound which led to a rise in the costs of building the new White Hart Lane and precipitated the club’s failure to buy a single player during the transfer window.

One man's suffering has exposed Monsanto's secrets to the world | Carey Gillam

Company’s own records revealed damning truth of glyphosate-based herbicides’ link to cancer

It was a verdict heard around the world. In a stunning blow to one of the world’s largest seed and chemical companies, jurors in San Francisco have told Monsanto it must pay $289m in damages to a man dying of cancer which he claims was caused by exposure to its herbicides.

Monsanto, which became a unit of Bayer AG in June, has spent decades convincing consumers, farmers, politicians and regulators to ignore mounting evidence linking its glyphosate-based herbicides to cancer and other health problems. The company has employed a range of tactics – some drawn from the same playbook used by the tobacco industry in defending the safety of cigarettes – to suppress and manipulate scientific literature, harass journalists and scientists who did not parrot the company’s propaganda, and arm-twist and collude with regulators. Indeed, one of Monsanto’s lead defense attorneys in the San Francisco case was George Lombardi, whose resumé boasts of his work defending big tobacco.

Boris Johnson is leveraging hatred and racism in his desire for power | Rupa Huq

His calculated remarks about burqas fuel the flames at a dangerous time for ethnic minorities

I remember the first time I was called “Paki”. It was 1978 at primary school in Ealing, west London, now my constituency. I was quite startled. My playground tormentor had to explain the etymology of the term to me. I retorted:“Actually, East Pakistan has been liberated into Bangladesh since 1971; it’s an independent country”, which shut him up.

I was born in Hammersmith the year after Bangladeshi independence and recall the racism of old. In those days, “the host community” saw the likes of me and the two kids in our school with turbans (brothers) as “Asian” – the shorthand “Paki” overlooking different nationalities. The subtitles of religion had not reared their head. The Satanic Verses and 9/11 changed that when the badge “Don’t freak, I’m a Sikh” was produced, signalling a disaggregation of Asians. Race broke down into religion.

Ezra Pound wrote the world’s single greatest poem, but is it wrong to love a fascist? | Ash Sarkar

The poet is just one of my problematic faves, along with The Simpsons and Vybz Kartel

Nothing in this life is certain aside from death, taxes and English literature graduates writing in the Guardian and spoiling your enjoyment of things you had previously thought were fine. While the meme of the problematic fave may be five years old, the enduring agony and ecstasy of having one tells us a lot about the way popular culture shapes our entire sense of self.

The problematic fave has its origins in that crucible of millennial woke culture, Tumblr. A modern-day Domesday Book called Your Fave Is Problematic catalogued examples of transphobic, misogynist and white-supremacist behaviour from supposedly liberal heroes (RuPaul using the slur “tranny”, for example). As such, the problematic fave should not be confused with its insipid country cousin, the guilty pleasure. We’re not talking about harmless indulgences such as scoffing a whole tube of Pringles before bedtime, or autoerotic asphyxiation. We’re talking about cultural phenomena where not only the artist, but also our own pleasure in the artist, is politically and ethically dubious.

Antisemitism, Islamophobia – and this is just the Brexit phoney war | Marina Hyde
Boris Johnson’s swipe at Muslim women has left both major parties in conflict with minorities. It all feels a bit ominous

Never less than up-to-the-minute, I have just read Boris Johnson’s 2004 novel Seventy Two Virgins. If you’re wondering if that title doubles as a description of its readership, you’re on the wrong track. It sold well, and the reader is duly lured in with the cover quote, promising “Johnson scores in his comic handling of these sensitive issues”.

Dear Americans, when is the last time you took a real vacation? | Krista Burton

Too many American workers don’t take all their allotted holidays. There needs to be a cultural shift surrounding time off

In May, I went to Paris for 10 days. I didn’t bring my laptop.

When I booked my plane ticket in January, I couldn’t imagine having 10 (14 if you counted weekends!) whole days off. Ten days. Ten days when I wasn’t working and I should have been; 10 days without opening my work email or worrying about freelance deadlines or thinking about my job at all.

The book that fights sexism with science
With Inferior, Angela Saini counters long-held beliefs that biology stands in the way of parity between the sexes. Now her message is set to reach thousands of schools

When young men and women come up against sexist stereotypes masquerading as science, Angela Saini wants them to be armed with the facts. “I call my book ammunition,” she says of her 288-page prize-winning work Inferior: The True Power of Women and the Science that Shows It. “There are people out there who insist that somehow the inequalities we see in society are not just because of historic discrimination, but also because of biology – the idea that there are factors within us that will cause men or women to be better at some things than others.”

She wrote Inferior to demonstrate that “actually, science doesn’t support that point of view. I think it’s important we understand these scientific facts. We need that ammunition to counter the weird mistruths that are circulating within and outside science about sex difference”.

The Heiresses review – wit and wisdom amid Paraguay’s upper crust

A woman is drawn out of her protective bubble when the money runs out in this excellent debut from Marcelo Martinessi

Now in her late 50s, Chela (Ana Brun) was born into the kind of money that has cushioned her from the world. But since her inherited wealth has trickled away, she has relied on her life-partner Chiquita (Margarita Irun) to protect her from the indignities of encroaching poverty. Chela retreats into her boudoir, where she dabs reproachfully on a glum beige watercolour, aloof from the strangers who rifle through the heirlooms that are being sold off to manage debts.

But then debt catches up with them, and Chiquita is sent to prison for fraud. Now Chela is adrift, forced to engage with the world from which she would prefer to retreat. For a favour, she drives her elderly neighbour Pituca (María Martins) to a card game. Pituca wears her malice ostentatiously, like a mink stole, but her ill-naturedness is a small price to pay. Chela takes a step towards independence when she starts to work as a driver for Pituca’s clique of wealthy ladies of a certain age. It’s through driving that Chela meets Angy (Ana Ivanova), an uninhibited younger woman who confides in Chela of the useless men she has discarded. Fascinated, Chela is seduced out of herself.

Hanif Kureishi on Bromley: ‘Words were my lifeline out of zombie boredom’

The author recalls library visits and dreams of becoming a writer in the suburban commuter town

In the drawer of the desk I have used for decades there is a notebook wrapped in brown paper, which I started in 1964 when I was 10, and had filled by 1974. It contains a year-by-year list of the books I read, almost all of which I borrowed from libraries in the south London suburbs, which I’d cycle to every afternoon after school.

My eldest son was amazed when I showed it to him, and he even turned the pages for a few minutes. “You were 11 years old and you read 86 books in one year!” Yes; I began with Biggles, Enid Blyton, Arthur Ransome and the autobiographies of footballers and cricketers. In the middle I read Nevil Shute, Nicholas Monsarrat, Len Deighton and Erskine Caldwell, writers pretty much forgotten now, as most of us will be. But in 1974, I’m relieved to see that I go out on a high, with Marcel Proust, Fyodor Dostoevsky and Friedrich Nietzsche.

Dylan Jones: ‘I was beaten and locked under the stairs by my father’

The GQ magazine editor, 58, on where #MeToo leaves men, embracing getting older and why he’d recommend the Hoffman Process

Thirty years ago, GQ launched as a yuppie bible, a magazine that celebrated a very particular type of financial success and ambition, but we are a world away from 1988, when louche behaviour was the norm. We survived the long tail of the 90s “new lad” culture, arriving in a place where women are more prominent and powerful.

I have a vague memory of being taken to see A Hard Day’s Night in the West End by my mother. A matinée I think. Whenever I’m asked about my favourite film I always say The Godfather II or White Christmas, but actually it’s probably this, the first film I ever saw.

“Crowds are not fun. Claustrophobia is not fun. I want to go home, have a proper shower, and a poo.” In the forthcoming British film comedy The Festival (made by the team behind The Inbetweeners), the lead character, Nick, isn’t really enjoying his first big festival experience.

Yotam Ottolenghi’s revamped British classic recipes

Make over a prawn cocktail with a crispy twist, swap coronation chicken for chickpeas or recreate a famous lolly with these updated dishes

My take on three British summer classics is as eccentric as they come. The coronation chicken doesn’t include chicken, the seafood cocktail has got way too many ingredients, and the pudding is a homemade Solero, an ice-cream introduced by Walls in 1994 (– delicious, but scarcely old enough to qualify as a classic). I hope you’ll forgive such transgressions, because all three are deliciously summery and, in my book, British enough.

From EM Forster to Mamma Mia! Why we can't resist the Mediterranean

Sunshine, sensuality, and a dash of danger... the ‘warm south’ has fascinated writers and artists for hundreds of years. But why are the Brits so obsessed?

Some readers may be lucky enough this holiday season to experience one day, or just a moment, however fleeting, of balmy fulfilment, when everything is perfect. When you just want to freeze everything, capture the sense of satiated pleasure and take it home with you.

The Anglo-American artist John Singer Sargent had one such day when he was painting friends on the terrace of a villa in the Alban hills close to Rome during the summer of 1907. Taking a break for refreshment, he joked that they should all take strychnine: such was the depth of his contentment that he wanted to lie down and die. The hit ITV series about the escapades of the Durrell family in 1930s Corfu evokes more simply the Mediterranean’s symbolic power to resolve and soothe harassed minds.

How ethical is the elephant ‘sanctuary' you're visiting?

On the eve of World Elephant Day experts advise how to avoid cruel elephant attractions and support genuine welfare centres

“Many parks advertise themselves as sanctuaries but they are not,” says Maria Mossman, founder of non-profit group Action for Elephants UK. “Never go to a park that advertises shows, unnatural behaviour, tricks or painting – and please, never ride an elephant.”

Mossman, who has been involved in elephant activism since 2013, and also organises global marches, says that real sanctuaries will limit contact with the elephants, with visitors observing them from a distance the majority of the time. She warns travellers to avoid anywhere offering riding or allowing bathing sessions with elephants: “In some places this means a lot of people every hour with the elephants in the water – it’s not natural for an elephant to be in the water all day with lots of people climbing all over them.”

‘I return to a few firm favourites’: Dina Torkia’s top beauty products

The YouTube star picks the best products for everything from hijab acne to eyelash rehab

My job as a beauty and fashion blogger involves constantly taking pictures and videos of myself, so I am always having to think about how I look. Everyone knows that a lot of what you see on social media is fake: it’s just the best bits of everyone’s day. So, to stay sane, I try to take regular breaks and hang out with my husband and children (my second child was born last month). I also make sure that if I post a photo of myself looking amazing, I also do some Instagram stories of myself with no makeup on, looking terrible. I want my audience to see a realistic representation of me, especially as a lot of them are quite young.

I’m 29 now and started experimenting with makeup when I was 16, as I became conscious of my looks at secondary school in Cardiff. I am glad it happened later in my teen years; at that time, I had an eating disorder and I don’t know how bad that could have got if I had started getting into beauty products and looking at myself any earlier.

The secret to… travelling as a person of colour

Be respectful of local customs and talk to your travelling companions in advance about dealing with racism

Bring your own beauty products: quite often, afro hair products and certain foundation shades will be hard to find. Black people going away for a long time should consider a protective hairstyle, such as medium to short braids and twists, or lightweight Kanekalon hair extensions.

Think about how you will respond to discrimination and develop your own strategy for dealing with racism, whether it’s people shouting “Hey, Beyoncé” or locals asking where in Africa or India you’re from (even though you’re from Birmingham). Know when to challenge people, but also when to walk away for your own safety.

About 547,000 citizens of the crisis-stricken South American country have entered Ecuador since January – mostly through its northern border with Colombia – to escape rampant crime and political violence, a collapsing economy and severe shortages of food and medicines.

Carl Zimmer: ‘We shouldn’t look to our genes for a quick way to make life better’
The science writer and Harvard professor on intelligence, the promise and dangers of gene editing, and how we get heredity wrong

Carl Zimmer is a rarity among professional science writers in being influential among the scientists on whose work he writes and comments – to the extent that he has been appointed as professor adjunct in the department of molecular biophysics and biochemistry at Yale University. Zimmer has just published his 13th book, She Has Her Mother’s Laugh, survey of “the power, perversions and potential of heredity”.

What is the book’s main message about our attitudes to heredity?
Heredity is central to our existence and how we define ourselves. But it’s not what we think it is. It’s not just genes, for example. We inherit culture too, and there may even be other channels of heredity. And the way genes enable heredity doesn’t fit our common notions. We tend to imagine that we inherit particular genes from our parents, grandparents and so on, and that these shape us in ways that are easy to understand and trace. But that’s not how heredity works. Each trait is typically influenced by hundreds or thousands of different genes, and the environment in which those genes are acting makes all the difference to how we turn out.

‘It made me question my ancestry’: does DNA home testing really understand race?

Dubious results, emotional fallout, privacy concerns: inside the £7.7bn industry that promises to tell you who you really are

Last year, I did what 12 million people from all over the world have done and surrendered my spit to a home DNA-testing company. I hoped a MyHeritage test would bring me the peace I needed; my Irish mother had never been able to give me any information about my biological father. Raised by her and my white dad, I’d always longed for a country to attribute my blackness to, or for help answering the ubiquitous “Where are you from?” question. I’d spent years making up exotic-sounding combinations to justify my appearance (some days Jamaican-Spanish-Swedish; other days half Brazilian, or half Iranian). But, at 24, I was done with occupying a box of black ambiguity. Could I finally get a clear answer?

The results arrived by email on a summer’s day last year. I clicked on the “ethnicity estimate” link, which offers an analysis of DNA by country, my heart pounding as I scanned the digital map.

'Beautiful as ever!': Nicaragua pushes tourism despite ongoing crisis
