The tsunami killed almost 19,000 people along the north-east coast of Japan and forced more than 150,000 others living near the plant to flee radiation. Some of the evacuated neighbourhoods are still deemed too dangerous for former residents to go back.

Saving the albatross: 'The war is against plastic and they are casualties on the frontline'

Following his shocking photographs of dead albatross chicks and the diet of plastic that killed them, Chris Jordan’s new film is a call to action to repair our broken relationship with planet Earth

We are living in a plastic age and the solutions may seem glaringly obvious, so why aren’t all 7.6 billion of us already doing things differently? Shocking statistics don’t guarantee effective change. So what’s the alternative? American photographer and filmmaker Chris Jordan believes the focus should be on forcing people to have a stronger emotional engagement with the problems plastic causes. His famous photographs of dead albatross chicks and the colourful plastic they have ingested serve as a blunt reminder that the planet is in a state of emergency.

While making his feature-length film Albatross, Jordan considered Picasso’s approach: “The role of the artist is to respect you, help you connect more deeply, and then leave it up to you to decide how to behave.”

I'm taking my conservative cousin, age 93, to meet Trump – will you help?

Close friends despite our differences, we’re planning a drive across the US to Washington. We want to meet people who will challenge each of our beliefs

My cousin Frances once said she’d “drive clear across the country to shake Donald Trump’s hand”, so I’ve offered to drive her myself.

She’s 93 and I’m 43, but we’re practically best friends. Frances and I are like a lot of families these days: her politics veer right, while I veer sensible (“Oh please!” she says). She thinks Trump is saving America, while I think he’s selling it to the highest bidder. After the 2016 election, I said some nasty things and we didn’t speak for weeks, something we both regretted.

Low-cost housing needs dignity, says Indian architect Balkrishna Doshi

Fresh from scooping architecture’s most august award, the champion of housing for the poor is urging greater compassion

The winner of architecture’s “Nobel prize”, Balkrishna Doshi, has called on his profession to rethink the way it approaches building for the most impoverished communities.

The internationally noted champion of housing for India’s poor, Doshi was awarded the Pritzker prize last week, in large part for the Aranya low-cost housing project. It accommodates 80,000 people with houses and courtyards linked by a maze of pathways in the city of Indore.

My double life as a food writer and bulimic

For years, Louise Gray lived with a secret. She was a respected food writer, but she’d also struggled with a serious eating disorder since her teens. Here she reveals how she coped

The annual Guild of Food Writers Awards is a bit like the Oscars for foodies. When my name was called, I leapt out of my seat and ran to the stage to receive two awards. I even gave a speech, though I managed to keep it short – and not cry. In the audience of 300 food writers, journalists and chefs packed into a trendy warehouse venue in London, I could see many of my heroes applauding. Previous winners of the awards for food book and investigative food work included Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Jamie Oliver and Heston Blumenthal. It should have been a moment of great triumph. But I felt like a fraud.

What the hell was I doing here? I had become a food writer entirely by accident. I looked around at all these modern-day gurus on how to cook and how to eat and knew I had a very different relationship with food. I had a terrible secret.

How to persuade people (hint: not by telling them they're stupid)

Social psychologist Robert Cialdini helped Obama in the 2012 election. Influence, he says, can come down to the right word in the right place

Despite the turmoil unleashed by his administration, Donald Trump voters remain committed to their president, which is quite the conundrum for a Democratic party debating how to bounce back in 2020.

In previous elections, the Democrats have sought the help of social psychologist Robert Cialdini. A professor at Arizona State University who pioneered the study of persuasion, Cialdini was part of a team of behavioural scientists that helped propel Obama to victory in 2012. He was also consulted in the early stages of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, though, he points out, he was much less involved in that race. Clinton’s major disadvantage, he believes, was that she was a continuity candidate in a change election.

Breaking up (with my smartphone) is hard to do

I’m following a 30-day plan to wean me off it. I leave it in another room and, like an 18th-century gentleman, reply to messages only once a day

There is something wrong with my phone, and it is not just that the predictive text feature thinks I’m obsessed with ducks. The real problem is that my phone is the first thing I look at in the morning, and the last thing I look at at night. I come running when it makes a “ding” noise. I think in tweets and look at meals and people and imagine them cropped into squares on Instagram. There is something mentally totalitarian about it.

Smartphones are designed to addict us – nagging us with notifications, disrupting us with noise, making themselves indispensable. Social media apps harness neuroscience to the same end, triggering dopamine hits that lock us into them for hours. A terrifying new book, How to Break Up With Your Phone, says we are rewiring our brains so they are less organised for deep thought; killing our attention span, destroying our memory, sleep and happiness. Phones have changed the world, too; advertisers use them to hoover up our attention. We are no longer just consumers, but product. As Ramsay Brown, co-founder of app-designers Dopamine Labs, has said: “You get to use [Facebook] for free, because your eyeballs are what’s being sold there.”

Climate change is a disaster foretold, just like the first world war | Jeff Sparrow

The warnings about an unfolding climate catastrophe are getting more desperate, yet the march to destruction continues

“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time.”

The mournful remark supposedly made by foreign secretary Sir Edward Grey at dusk on 3 August 1914 referred to Britain’s imminent entry into the first world war. But the sentiment captures something of our own moment, in the midst of an intensifying campaign against nature.

The Guardian view on Saudi Arabia and Yemen: Britain’s shame, Britain’s duty
The visit by crown prince Mohammed bin Salman has highlighted UK responsiblities in the devastating war

Two announcements marked the end of the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman’s visit to the UK on Friday. First came a £100m aid deal, promptly branded a “national disgrace”. While DfID says it will pool expertise to boost infrastructure in poor countries, critics say that it is meant to whitewash the reputation of Saudi Arabia, which needs such PR thanks to its leading role in the war in Yemen.

Enter announcement two, from BAE Systems. Saudi Arabia is near a long-delayed deal to buy 48 Typhoon fighters. The country’s military already have 72; some are being used in Yemen. The Campaign Against Arms Trade says the UK has licensed £4.6bn of arms sales to Riyadh since the bombardment began in 2015. Though Theresa May reportedly raised her “deep concerns” about the war with the crown prince, Britain boasts of providing humanitarian aid while supplying the weapons that fuel the world’s worst manmade humanitarian crisis and supporting the Saudi air campaign.

Softly-softly isn’t working. Time to play hard with wealthy Russians in UK | Oliver Bullough

After the Salisbury poisonings, it’s time to tell Putin’s inner circle that they are no longer welcome here

We need to recap briefly the similarities between Alexander Litvinenko and Sergei Skripal, because they are stark.

Both served in the Russian security services; both faced prosecution in Russia; both found sanctuary in Britain; both co-operated with British intelligence agencies. And both were attacked with rare poisons, of kinds available only to governments. The only important difference is that Litvinenko’s murderers were successful, while Skripal is still fighting for his life.

Why are we still so scared of crusading women who speak the truth? | Kevin McKenna
Mary Barbour led an uprising against spiv landlords in 1915. Today, her like are crushed by trolls

Nothing became Glasgow more on International Women’s Day last week than the unveiling of a statue of Mary Barbour in Govan. To call this a mere statue is like saying Lionel Messi is a decent inside forward. It depicts Barbour, one of her arms aloft, leading a group of women into battle with the spiv landlords who were trying to put them and their families on to the streets.

There are so many reasons why this is one of Scotland’s most important monuments of recent years. In 1915, Barbour led her army of women and children in a struggle against the greed and viciousness of Glasgow landlords who sought to exploit the absence of husbands and partners fighting in the First World War. The city had experienced an influx of men from other parts of the UK eager for well-paid jobs in the heavy industries required to maintain the war effort. Some landlords viewed this as an opportunity to raise rents for the purpose of evicting wives and families to make way for these workers.

Populists will eventually be found out – moderates must be ready for that day | Andrew Rawnsley
Social democrats may be struggling but there is little to suggest that voters are clamouring for the statist left or libertarian right

The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there. We can see just how alien the past can be by taking my time machine for a short spin back 20 years. For many readers, especially younger ones, time tourism will be a shock. In 1998, Amazon is a company struggling to convince people that there is a profitable future selling books online. Facebook doesn’t exist. Neither does the iPhone. The Russian intelligence service is run by Vladimir Putin. Some things haven’t changed then.

Also in 1998 – and this will really surprise some people – Tony Blair is the most popular prime minister Britain has ever had. He and other centre-leftists of his type are dominant in the western democracies. Bill Clinton, a “new” Democrat, is in his second term at the White House. “New Labour” has recently surged to power with a parliamentary landslide in Britain. It will go on to win two further elections. The “neue mitte” – the word new is much loved by this generation of social democrats – has been a winner for the SPD’s Gerhard Schröder, who is embarked on the first of two stints as Germany’s chancellor. The moderate left is in government in two-thirds of the countries that are members of the European Union. Their successful offer is broad support for free markets combined with good public services, a decent welfare state, internationalism and social liberalism. This seems to be a magic formula both for the taking of power and the exercising of it. At around this time, one of Mr Blair’s senior advisers told me that they represented “a new common sense” so potent that neither the traditional conservative right nor the old socialist left could hope to compete with it.

The Observer view on talks between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un | Observer editorial
The president, seeing a chance to secure his place in history, has taken Kim’s bait

Will Donald Trump ever meet Kim Jong-un? It is a reasonable question, given the US leader’s changeable moods and the fact that the North Korean dictator has yet to issue an official invitation. Trump could barely contain his excitement last week after a South Korean delegation passed on Kim’s suggestion of a meeting by May. He appeared unannounced in the White House briefing room to tip off reporters that big news was about to break.

But Trump’s exhilaration was not about averting the nuclear Armageddon he himself so recently threatened. It was about his chance of securing a place in history as the man who “solved” the 70-year-old Korean conundrum. Trump saw a golden chance to posture as peacemaker before an admiring world. So without consulting his closest and better-informed advisers, he took Kim’s bait.

Six Nations: talking points from the weekend's action

France must not get carried after beating England, while Ireland will need to bolster their defence at Twickenham

When the post-match debate centres on whether England were poorer in Murrayfield or Paris, there is definitely trouble at mill. They never looked remotely likely to score the four tries required to retain a mathematical interest in the Six Nations title race and it would have been distinctly rough justice on France had the visitors sneaked home late on in Saint Denis. One or two England players felt afterwards they might have received a penalty for French defenders going off their feet at the final ruck under the posts; it would still not have erased the horrors of the previous 79 minutes. In many ways this was even worse than Edinburgh; until the latter stages, Eddie Jones’s side made barely any consistent attacking headway and will need a dramatic improvement to topple the Grand Slam-chasing Ireland. The last time England lost three Six Nations games on the trot was 12 years ago. Robert Kitson

Tears and tributes as Serie A returns with Davide Astori in its thoughts | Paolo Bandini

Daniele De Rossi was just one of the players with tears in his eyes as football began again in Italy after the death of the Fiorentina captain

Florence downed tools to remember Davide Astori on Thursday. The player’s funeral had been held in the morning at the Basilica Santa Croce, with a crowd of 10,000 in attendance, but even those who could not be there in person joined in with a minute-long pause for reflection at 1pm. Across the city, businesses shut off the lights and ceased trading.

One day later, Italian football sought to pay tribute by carrying on. The country’s top divisions had abandoned all fixtures after Astori’s sudden passing the previous weekend but the time had come to continue. Not everyone found it easy. Before Roma’s game against Torino on Friday night, Eusebio Di Francesco noted that Daniele De Rossi was struggling to come to terms with the loss of his friend.

Mercedes confidence is an ominous sign after Barcelona F1 testing | Giles Richards

Mercedes look like being the team to beat again, while Ferrari and McLaren both have much work to do

The dominant force in F1 for the past four years, Mercedes appear to show no sign of relinquishing their stranglehold. Last year’s championship-winning car, which was quick but temperamental, has undergone an evolution over the winter that looks alarming for their rivals. They clocked the most laps with 1,040 and, although only seventh on the time sheets, their pace in race simulations was relentlessly good, half a second a lap up on Ferrari and eight-tenths on Red Bull. The team chose not to run the car on the fastest hyper-soft rubber, unconcerned about setting a single lap marker, and Lewis Hamilton, who concluded last season comfortably on top and is generally careful not to heighten expectations, declared they had made a significant step forward. Whether they have banished the diva characteristics of last season has yet to be seen but this quiet confidence is hugely ominous.

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

Alex Iwobi is drifting, Pellegrino is on dangerous ground and Manchester United produced a classic performance

It always feels unfair to single out a young player, not least one who seems with each performance these days to become a one-man Arsenal social media event, a living banter-meme. Just check out Alex Iwobi on Twitter the next time Arsenal are playing – and hope he never makes the mistake of searching his own name. But watching him against Watford it was tempting to wonder about stalled progress, and a comfort zone at the wrong moment in his career. He has been more productive since Christmas, has made an effort to make more decisive forward runs. But he remains a strange footballer, a creative midfielder who seems to be always shuttling in vaguely the right area, but who somehow ends up doing very little actual creating. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has shown the fruits of moving on to develop. Iwobi still seems unsure of his place in the pecking order, too mannered to have any real sharp edges, and in danger of becoming a poster boy for late-Wenger drift. Barney Ronay

Antonio Conte to consult Chelsea players on tactics for Barcelona return
• Eden Hazard likely to be spared false No 9 role this time
• Olivier Giroud may be preferred to Álvaro Morata in attack

Antonio Conte intends to consult his players over how best to overcome Barcelona on Wednesday, a move which should allow Eden Hazard to argue against his deployment as a false No 9, as he seeks to “share responsibility” before the game at the Camp Nou.

Tiger Woods falls just short as Paul Casey wins Valspar Championship
  • Woods finishes second after brilliant putt on 17th raises hopes
  • Englishman Casey takes second PGA Tour title after final-round 65

Paul Casey surged to victory at the Valspar Championship in Florida on Sunday as Tiger Woods finished one stroke behind in a tie for second place.

The old Tiger magic was missing for most of the day as a cold putter hampered the 14-times major champion in his quest for a chance to record his first victory since 2013. Missing, that is, until the par-three 17th, where Woods perfectly read and then executed a 45-foot birdie putt, his ball curling deliciously into the centre of the cup as the gallery went berserk.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang frustrated by forced absence from Europa League
• Arsenal striker says lack of midweek action has hampered his start
• ‘Now I play once a week or have a long time between games’

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says his Uefa-enforced absence from the Europa League has hampered his attempts to find an early rhythm at Arsenal. The striker, who joined for a club record £56m from Borussia Dortmund on the final day of the January transfer window, is cup-tied in the Europa League – which is a huge frustration to him.

Arsène Wenger, the Arsenal manager, has criticised the Uefa rule and he believes it will be scrapped, largely because of the huge sums of money involved in mid-season transfers. Aubameyang played for Dortmund in this season’s Champions League but they finished third in their group to drop into the knockout phase of the Europa League, where Arsenal are competing.

Eminem attacks NRA in awards show performance: 'They control the puppet'

Christopher Eccleston: ‘I gave Doctor Who a hit show and then they put me on a blacklist'

As he finally achieves his ambition of playing Macbeth at the ‘posh’ RSC, Eccleston talks about how Doctor Who almost destroyed his career, his debt to his parents and why he ‘put self-hatred to bed’

Within minutes of meeting the man, it becomes clear that Christopher Eccleston is the sort of person who would be very good in a crisis. He has an air of soothing security about him – an ardent calm, if you will – that encourages other people to pause, take a breath, and become mellower. By other people, obviously, I mostly mean me. But he has a similar salving effect on the staff in the bar where we meet, and on the photographer, too. We are all seduced.

For Eccleston is quite the charmer. But as much as he is a great actor – from his debut as Derek Bentley in Let Him Have It through playing Steve Baxter, son of God, in Russell T Davies’s The Second Coming to his role in HBO’s acclaimed The Leftovers – his turn today is no performance. Overused a word it may be, but Eccleston seems authentic. When he says, “I think when you’re working at your best you’re constantly humble,” you believe it. And you believe him when he says: “Because I grew up with not much, I’ve always been a rainy day person. I’ve always put money away. And I know that doesn’t make me rock’n’roll, but I never imagined really that I’d get another job.” It’s different for him now, he admits. “I’ve got to the point where I believe I will work. But for the first 15, 20 years, I saved. I saved because I thought: ‘This is all going to fall through. And when it falls through, I want something to show for it.’”

Ai Weiwei in Sydney: 'The refugee condition is a human condition' – video

Ai Weiwei and the Biennale of Sydney's artistic director, Mami Kataoka, at Cockatoo Island in Sydney, speak about the Chinese artist’s exhibition inspired by the global refugee crisis. 'We are living in a very peaceful world, almost like a fairytale, in Australia, but still we cannot disconnect our connections to other human beings, the suffering and the tragic life of our global human community, he says. The activist has spent the last few years working on art that draws attention to the global refugee crisis, including a 60-metre long lifeboat featuring more than 300 refugee figures, called Law of the Journey, that is displayed on Cockatoo Island, and film Human Flow which also opens in Sydney this week.

Ruben Östlund: ‘All my films are about people trying to avoid losing face’

The Swedish director of Force Majeure and Palme d’Or winner The Square, starring Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West, on the folly of screen violence and finding drama in the oddities of human behaviour

Ruben Östlund is the rugged adventurer of Swedish film, the man who came down from the mountain to sun himself by the Med. I first meet the director on a posh restaurant terrace at the Cannes film festival. He’s easy to spot among the immaculate diners, perched at a corner table and clasping a mug of coffee as though to keep his hands warm. Östlund is bearded and rumpled and reeks of the outdoors – a child of nature come to gatecrash high society. He says he loves the Alps; he loves to ski. He spent most of his 20s shooting extreme sport videos. “Then I got bored of resorts. Too many lift queues.”

I think the ski slope’s loss might be cinema’s gain. Or possibly he’s just swapped one extreme sport for another. Östlund’s latest film, The Square, crash-landed on the festival as a last-minute addition, still warm from the editing suite (and would later make off with the all-important Palme d’Or). It’s a lovely, freewheeling piece of work – a comedy that starts out as a satire on modern art and then jumps the fence to embrace the whole world, riffing on themes of public space and personal responsibility. The film’s title refers to a utopian free zone that is marked out on the street outside a Stockholm museum. “The Square is a sanctuary of trust and caring,” the accompanying brass plaque explains. “Within it we all share equal rights and obligations.”

Unmasked by Andrew Lloyd Webber – digested read

‘Beethoven telephoned to say that the key change in Don’t Cry for Me Argentina was like a message from God himself’

I had originally intended to write my autobiography as a single, slim volume. But then I remembered how marvellous I had been throughout my life and have ended up with a 500-page doorstop that judders to a halt with the first night of Phantom of the Opera, my record-breaking musical of 1986 about which no less a talent than Mozart was moved to write: “Andrew Lloyd Webber is a genius.”

I grew up in South Kensington. By the age of eight, many of my teachers considered me to be a prodigy. My essay on Victorian churches won several global prizes and the opera I composed for the school play was premiered at the Royal Albert Hall, with Arturo Toscanini, no less, conducting. Afterwards I was lucky enough to converse with Sergei Prokofiev whom I consider to be the 20th century’s greatest melodist. Present company excepted, of course.

José Rivera on Kiss of the Spider Woman: I had to kill what I loved

When Rivera re-read Manuel Puig’s book he loved its surreal dialogue and brilliant footnotes. But something had to give. He explains what he sacrificed for his stage version – and why he saved the zombies

Manuel Puig’s Kiss of the Spider Woman is many novels in one. It’s a political critique of unlimited right-wing power; a psycho-emotional exploration of state terror and incarceration; an interior dreamscape; and a redemptive love story between two prisoners, the apolitical window dresser Molina and the committed leftist guerrillero Valentin.

Most of the novel is told in dialogue. These long, complex, emotionally fraught conversations read as if they are word-for-word transcripts of the prisoners’ secretly taped encounters. Some sequences feel like jazz, others play like hallucinations. There are dazzling, surreal, stream-of-consciousness internal monologues – extended fever dreams inspired by Faulkner and Joyce. There are also chilling police reports on the ruling junta’s efforts to spy on the newly released Molina. And there are scores of lengthy footnotes detailing Freud’s analysis of homosexuality and the elimination of repression (the association of sex and sin), as well as Herbert Marcuse’s championing of the “free flow of the libido”

Pedro Almodóvar’s Madrid: top 10 film locations to visit

The Spanish capital is the ‘centre of the Almodóvarian universe’. The writer of a new book on the film-maker guides visitors to locations where he shot key scenes

The city of Madrid is no less essential to the films of Pedro Almodóvar than kinky sex, crimes of passion and gasp-inducing plot twists. Though born out in Castilla-La Mancha – Don Quixote country – Almodóvar made his punkish early movies here in the capital, where the death of General Franco gave rise to a buckwild creative scene.

Later, soberer melodramas like the recent Julieta (2016) have shown his adoptive hometown in a more nostalgic, melancholy light. Now one of the most widely admired auteurs in world cinema, the director has become a Spanish brand, says Sacha Azcona, while his Madrid stands as the centre of the “Almodóvarian universe”.

Lift your way to strength – and help your body stay young

Weightlifting isn’t just the preserve of musclebound hulks. Now women of all ages are increasingly turning to barbells as a way of staying healthy and warding off the effects of getting older

Any woman can be strong. I don’t just mean strong in the metaphorical sense – I mean simply being able to exert force against gravity. You may think that strong women are born, not made. You may be thinking of Olympic weightlifters straining to clean and jerk dozens of kilos over their heads, or of bodybuilders in bikinis posing and flexing. Several of the women I interviewed for this article thought that way before they started to lift barbells. “I thought women who lifted were Amazons,” said one. “People who did stuff on TV, who were bulky. And I wasn’t interested.” Another remarked: “I couldn’t see a reason to build up all that bulk.”

But strength is not just about appearances. It is a requirement for everyday life. Strength is what you need if you are hoisting your carry-on luggage into the overhead compartment on a plane. You need to be strong to be able to pick your screaming toddler up off the floor and not hurt yourself. And, most of all – especially as you get older – you need strength simply to be able to stand up without falling over.

Game on: it’s never too early to teach children about money
Experts believe that how we handle finances is shaped by the age of seven – and board games and apps can help

The cost of a mortgage or rents, meeting monthly utility bills, shelling out for a new car – all headaches most people get to worry about from their 20s. But while some may struggle to pay their bills after a few too many nights out at the start of the month, others will have a tightly followed plan for their repayments.

So what is the difference between the savvy saver and the more knee-jerk spender?

I’m in love with a man who won’t leave his long-term girlfriend | Dear Mariella

You are nothing more to him than a pleasant diversion from his problems, Mariella tells a woman who doesn’t want to give up an affair. Move on

The dilemma I fell in love with a colleague who had a long-term girlfriend. Eight months after meeting him he told me he had been infatuated with me since I started, and we kissed. A few weeks later we slept together. He has told me his girlfriend is now his ex and I whole-heartedly believe him though he still lives with her, in the spare room. I spent Christmas with his family, who are understanding and keen for him to leave her. She drove a wedge between them, but his family like and accept me, even giving me small gifts.

Four months into our whirlwind romance and his mental health has snapped and he’s started seeing me much less frequently. He broke down over the phone (a few days ago) and told me he now wants to end it with me, as he can’t cope with the stress. They have a mortgage and a dog together. He refuses to give up on either of them and asked me to give him time and space. We were due to be in France for Valentine’s Day and now I am stuck at home alone – we are due to go to two weddings together this spring. I don’t want to give up on him.

Farm Girl Café, Chelsea: ‘We don't stay for dessert, because we have suffered enough’ – restaurant review | Jay Rayner

The food was so bad, a nearby Yorkshire terrier started to look more appetising

Farm Girl Café, 9 Park Walk, London SW10 0AJ (020 3674 7359). Meal for two, including drinks and service £110

The menu at the Farm Girl Café features lots of initials. There’s V for Vegan. There’s GF for Gluten Free. There’s DF for Dairy Free. I think they’re missing a few. There should be TF for Taste Free and JF for Joy Free and AAHYWEH for Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here. If you examine the company’s website, and I would only advise doing so if you have strong teeth that can cope with a good grinding, you will learn that the Farm Girl group offers: “A holistic and healthy yet comfortingly simple approach to Australian Café culture.” Nope, me neither. Apparently, they like to use “nutritionally nurturing ingredients”, which sounds rather nice. I could have done with a bit of nurture, rather than the dishes that came our way.

I left my serious job for the frivolous food industry. But chefs can bring change to the table | Chris Ying

If chefs back sustainable food, consumers will follow, writes Lucky Peach founder Chris Ying

A lot of people who cook food – and even more who write about it – have asked themselves at some point what the hell they’re doing. Particularly recently, as deeply entrenched institutional inequalities and biases are brought to light – not only in food but across numerous industries – a nagging question presents itself: am I doing something meaningful with my life?

These panicky moments vary in severity. Some are passing irritations that strike as we stand at the sink peeling a bucket of carrots, or while staring blankly at white pixels on a screen trying to come up with yet another word for “delicious”. Other times, it feels existential. More than a few people have left successful restaurant careers to pursue something they find more consequential. But the narrative you hear more frequently is about the person who leaves their desk job to work with something more tangible – namely food.

Teachers and school staff to be given weapons training, White House says

Plan to ‘harden’ schools against mass shooting attacks backtracks on pledge to raise the age limit for buying certain guns

The Trump administration will use existing justice department funding to help train teachers and other school personnel to use firearms in an attempt to “harden” schools against mass shooting attacks, the White House announced on Sunday.

Homeland security officials will also work with states to develop a public awareness campaign to prevent school shootings based on the “See something, say something” campaign launched after 9/11, which encourages members of the public to stay vigilant and report potential signs of terrorism.

Man seeks €1.8m in compensation for wrongful jailing over 9/11

Farid Hilali was accused of being an al-Qaida member who passed messages to logistics cell

A man seeking €1.8m in compensation after being wrongly jailed for five years over 9/11 has said he wants to put Britain and Spain “on the spot” over a gross injustice that left his life in tatters.

Farid Hilali, a Moroccan citizen, was jailed by the UK when it complied with a 2004 European arrest warrant (EAW) issued by Spain that accused him of being an al-Qaida member who passed on messages to the leader of a Spanish logistics cell about the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.

Burning coal may have caused Earth’s worst mass extinction | Dana Nuccitelli

New geological research from Utah suggests the end-Permian extinction was mainly caused by burning coal, ignited by magma

Earth has so far gone through five mass extinction events – scientists are worried we’re on course to trigger a sixth – and the deadliest one happened 252 million years ago at the end of the Permian geologic period. In this event, coined “the Great Dying,” over 90% of marine species and 70% of terrestrial vertebrate species went extinct. It took about 10 million years for life on Earth to recover from this catastrophic event.

Scientists have proposed a number of possible culprits responsible for this mass extinction, including an asteroid impact, mercury poisoning, a collapse of the ozone layer, and acid rain. Heavy volcanic activity in Siberia was suspected to play a key role in the end-Permian event.

Myanmar builds military bases on the site of Rohingya homes and mosques – report

Amnesty International says satellite images show ‘reshaping’ of the region to accommodate more security forces deter refugees from agreeing to return

Myanmar’s military is building bases where Rohingya homes and mosques once stood, Amnesty International said on Monday, citing new evidence from satellite imagery.

Nearly 700,000 members of the Muslim minority fled to Bangladesh in 2017 after Myanmar launched a brutal crackdown on insurgents that the US and UN have called ethnic cleansing. Myanmar rejects that accusation, saying it was responding to attacks by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army in late August.

Foreign Office policy of Global Britain is 'superficial rebranding'

MPs say there is no political, strategic or funding analysis behind the phrase

The Foreign Office’s post-Brexit policy of “Global Britain” is a meaningless slogan, currently underpinned by no clear political, strategic or funding analysis, MPs have said.

A report from the foreign affairs select committee said that unless the FCO assembles a new policy that “goes beyond a superficial rebranding exercise, the UK risks damaging its reputation overseas and eroding support for a global outlook in the UK itself”.

How Ferrante’s neighbourhood tells a story of Italy’s transformed politics
The success of the Five Star Movement in last week’s national elections has its roots in this impoverished city

Few people in Rione Luzzatti are aware of how intriguing they and their rundown neighbourhood have become thanks to the phenomenal success of Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels. Located to the east of the Naples train station, the district is believed to have been the setting for the childhood home of the two protagonists, Elena and Lina. “People around here don’t really read books,” says Pascale Edoardo.

Plagued by crime and high unemployment, his fellow Neapolitans dismiss Rione Luzzati as a hostile no-go zone. Ferrante fans are more likely to flock to the more salubrious areas of this complex yet fascinating southern Italian city that feature in the novels.

Getting the full Japanese experience – in Bangkok

Thailand’s capital, especially the central area of Sukhumvit, is home to a large Japanese community and has some fantastic Japanese bars and restaurants

I visited Bangkok expecting to eat a lot of Thai food, which I don’t think was unreasonable in the circumstances. So it was surprising that the most memorable meal of the trip turned out to be Japanese. Bangkok has one of the largest Japanese populations in Asia outside Japan. The official figures are about 50,000 but most estimates put it at at least double that, when you consider the numbers on long-term tourist visas who neglect to mention the fact to the authorities. About a quarter of work permits issued are to the Japanese.

Why the left’s hellish vision is so ruinous | Andrew Hindmoor
An unduly bleak view of recent British history, apt to see little but a legacy of neoliberalism, ignores the advances of social democracy and erodes faith in progressive politics, writes Andrew Hindmoor

Our sense of history shapes how we think about who we are. One of the distinguishing features of the left in Britain is that it holds to a remorselessly bleak and miserabilist view of our recent politics. This is a history in which Margaret Thatcher’s election in 1979 marked the start of a still continuing fall from political grace made evident by the triumph of a free-market, get-what-you-can, neoliberal ideology, dizzying levels of inequality, social decay, rampant individualism, state authoritarianism and political corruption.

The left does not like what has happened to us and it does not like what we have become.

My May-Thatcher deepfake won't fool you but its tech may change the world

Yes, my AI face-swap attempts might show how hard it is to make a deepfake – but it’s getting easier every day

MPs from the House of Commons inquiry into fake news were warned last week of a new AI technology that is about to change the world, and not for the better.

“We’re rapidly moving into an era where the Russians, or any other adversary, can create our public figures saying or doing things that are disgraceful or highly corrosive to public trust,” Edward Lucas, the senior vice president of the Centre for European Policy Analysis told MPs. “And we’re not remotely ready for this.”

How did 18th century’s literary women relieve domestic distress? With opiates
It wasn’t just men such as Coleridge and De Quincey who took drugs, study of Mary Robinson and Harriet Martineau reveals

The fantastical poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and the scandalous journal of “opium eater” Thomas De Quincey notoriously celebrate the influence of opium. Now, beyond Coleridge’s “caverns measureless to man” and De Quincey’s nightmarish visions, a new academic study is to reveal that many of the female stars of the British literary scene of the late 18th and early 19th centuries were equally dependent on the drug.

“While men like De Quincey and Coleridge were among the first to write openly about opium’s creative effects and so are seen as the originators of the tradition of British drug literature, contemporary women writers tended instead to view it as a comfort, a way of coping with the demands of artistic life,” said Dr Joseph Crawford, a senior lecturer at Exeter University, whose paper is due to be published as part of research titled Psychopharmacology and British Literature.

This domestic abuse case might change the way women live | Eva Wiseman

Sally Challen, who killed her husband in 2010, can appeal against her conviction because the law now recognises that domestic violence can include ‘coercive control’

The word “domestic” has always struck me as a tricky one when followed by “violence”. Domestic feels cosy, small, the stakes are low, the radiator’s on, Pointless starts in a sec, the litter tray needs seeing to. All that gentle intimacy, all those scatter cushions, all that privacy. Which all feels rather safe and comforting, until you add that second word, and are forced, suddenly, to imagine the wrong relationship, the wrong house, the double glazing that doesn’t just keep traffic noise out, but keeps fights in, doors, pillows, that muffle the sounds of a woman being quietly abused, over anniversaries, Christmases, through whole box sets. Domestic violence, as we’re learning, is often insidious and subtle, and, for many of the women that suffer it, worse for the fact that it happens at home, where their children are, in the place where they’re meant to run for safety.

Last week, Sally Challen, who in 2011 had been convicted of her husband Richard’s murder and handed a 22-year sentence, was granted permission to appeal. Sally – now 63, a mother of two, who’d been with Richard since the age of 15 – doesn’t deny that she bludgeoned him to death with a hammer, before driving to Beachy Head to kill herself. But what’s changed in the years she’s been in prison, is that the law now recognises that domestic violence can’t always be quantified simply in bruises and broken arms, but may also include “coercive control”, where it’s not just a person’s physical integrity that’s violated, but their human rights.

UN moves towards recognising human right to a healthy environment

Formal recognition would help protect those who increasingly risk their lives to defend the land, water, forests and wildlife, says the UN special rapporteur on human rights and the environment

It is time for the United Nations to formally recognise the right to a healthy environment, according to the world body’s chief investigator of murders, beatings and intimidation of environmental defenders.

John Knox, the UN special rapporteur on human rights and the environment, said the momentum for such a move – which would significantly raise the global prominence of the issue – was growing along with an awareness of the heavy toll being paid by those fighting against deforestation, pollution, land grabs and poaching.

We must honour lost land defenders by fighting the system which killed them

Two more defenders in Latin America have lost their lives challenging their country’s economic growth model which prizes profit at all cost

As the Guardian and Global Witness revealed that almost four environmental defenders were murdered every week in 2017, War on Want learned of two more killings through our Latin American partner organisations.

On 24 January, Márcio “Marcinho” Matos, involved in the fight for rights of landless peasants in Bahia in north-east Brazil, was shot in front of his son. Three days later, Temístocles “don Temis” Machado, a prominent figure in the struggle of Afro-Colombian communities across the Colombian Pacific, was murdered in his home in the Isla de Paz community.

Saving the yellow-eyed penguin – a photo essay

Photographer Murdo Macleod visits New Zealand’s South Island where conservationists are seeking to protect the endangered yellow-eyed penguin from predation, disease and habitat destruction

At the end of the day, having avoided being bitten on the flipper by a barracouta or chewed by a shark, a shy yellow-eyed penguin prepares to come ashore and make its bed in the bush. Emerging from the surf, he scans the apparently empty sandy strip with his beady eye for signs of danger. Though he is a swift swimmer, he is fettered by his stumpy legs when ashore. But he grows confident as he comes close to the dense brush.

Then the unexpected happens: eight dark figures spring from three different locations and sprint toward the hoiho – or “little shouter” as the yellow-eyed penguin is known in Maori. He has been bushwhacked like this before and offers only token resistance. “Oh no, not again!” he may have thought.
