Magnesio, a che cosa serve e quali alimenti lo contengono

Dalla sintesi delle proteine alla produzione di energia alla trasmissione degli impulsi nervosi. Sono tantissime le attività dell’organismo in cui il magnesio svolge un ruolo decisivo. Molti alimenti lo contengono, pertanto è improbabile che una sua carenza con valori significativi possa manifestarsi in persone sane. Non per questo bisogna sottovalutarne il rischio. Come possiamo assicurarci un adeguato apporto di magnesio? E quando c’è bisogno di un supplemento? Ne parliamo con la dottoressa Manuela Pastore, dietista dell’ospedale Humanitas di Milano.

In detailed accounts given to the Danish newspaper Politiken, the women – all former employees at Zentropa – spoke of an “ingrained” culture of abuse at the studio, with several of the women interviewed saying that their treatment at the studio prompted them to stop working in the film industry altogether.

Claims that second lynx has died at zoo where animal escaped

Calls to close Borth zoo in west Wales after charity says a second lynx died last week while being moved by keepers

A seaside zoo reeling after the loss of Lillith the lynx, shot dead after leaping out of her enclosure, is facing criticism after claims emerged that a second lynx has died.

The owners and staff of Borth Wild Animal Kingdom have been devastated by the killing of Lillith, a young female shot dead on the orders of the local authority on Friday amid fears she was prowling too close to homes.

Paradise Papers: who's who in the leak of offshore secrets

The Paradise Papers have shed new light on the murky world of offshore finance, revealing the arcane schemes used by the world’s wealthiest individuals and corporations. Heads of state, technology giants and government officials are among those whose interests in tax havens have been brought into the cold light of day. Five days later, what have we learned?

Not everyone named in the leaks was using offshore structures to avoid tax. And though it is increasingly controversial, going offshore to avoid tax is not against the law. But as Barack Obama said of the Panama Papers a year ago: ‘A lot of it’s legal, but that’s exactly the problem.’

The Guardian view on the Paradise Papers: not all is lost | Editorial
The tax avoidance revelations have unleashed a demand for reform and social justice. Only a rash government would ignore it

Bono owns a bit of a Lithuanian shopping centre. The Queen finances a whisker of BrightHouse, the household goods business accused of exploiting its customers. Lewis Hamilton dodged VAT on his private jet with the finesse of an F1 champion. These are just a few of the headline details that have emerged this week out of the Paradise Papers, a leak of 13.4m files from the offshore law firm Appleby. They show the world’s super rich employing legions of accountants to legally avoid paying the tax they owe to the country where they live. And all over the world, jaws have dropped in astonishment.

The Guardian was one of 95 media organisations with whom the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists shared data obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung. The papers are a reminder of how erratic and sometimes downright obstructive the British government has been in its attitude to reforming domestic taxes, and in supporting international attempts to tighten up transparency and accountability rules. Less than a fortnight out from a budget that is set to maintain the cap on public spending, the discovery of so many who are so willing to flout the rules by which most of us live has provoked the kind of outrage that should be a watershed.

Banned by the police: the true stories behind Modigliani's languorous nudes

He was the ‘ravishing villain’ who drank, took drugs and bed-hopped his way around Paris. But Modigliani’s nudes – warm portraits of confident women – caused a revolution in painting

We fight against the nude in painting, as nauseous and as tedious as adultery in literature,” proclaimed the Italian Futurists in 1910. The nude was dead; the speeding car more thrilling than the female body. Yet by 1919, Modigliani had almost single-handedly resuscitated her. This was not the decorous nakedness of Manet, the woman seen at a distance, wreathed in allegory. Neither was it the mutilating brutality of Picasso, whom Kenneth Clark saw as engaged in “a scarcely resolved struggle between love and hatred”. These were warm, living women, bursting out of the frame towards the viewer; women drifting languorously to sleep or writhing with pleasure. Naked flesh, captured on the canvas, would never be the same again.

For decades, every Modigliani book and exhibition has talked about the “myth” of Modigliani, and the upcoming retrospective at the Tate is no exception. Is the story I’ve just described part of the myth? It may be, but like every myth, it points to a truth: they are different; they did change everything. We couldn’t have the abstracted forms of Alfred Stieglitz or Edward Weston’s nude photographs without the influence of Modigliani. Without him, it might have been years before the nude became so easily erotic.

From the Everglades to Kilimanjaro, climate change is destroying world wonders

Number of natural world heritage sites at serious risk from global warming has doubled in three years, says the IUCN, including the Great Barrier Reef and spectacular karst caves in Europe

From the Everglades in the US to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, climate change is destroying the many of the greatest wonders of the natural world.

A new report on Monday from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) reveals that the number of natural world heritage sites being damaged and at risk from global warming has almost doubled to 62 in the past three years.

Could a George Clooney presidency save America?

With Suburbicon flopping, it’s time for the star to take on his biggest challenge yet: Donald Trump

For most of the millennium, George Clooney has been the movie star you’d want to have an affair with, hang out with, or simply be. He has basically won life’s lottery: handsome, Oscar-winningly accomplished, smart, funny, politically engaged, happily married. And if that wasn’t enough, he just sold the tequila brand he “accidentally” co-founded for a billion dollars. He’s the consummate Hollywood star; he’s basically the anti-Weinstein. There’s just one problem: the movies. His acting roles are beginning to read like a list of well-intentioned failures: Disney sci-fi Tomorrowland; the Coen brothers’ un-hailed Hail, Caesar!; Jodie Foster’s Money Monster. None of them terrible, but none of them great. Or successful.

'Only God can save us': Yemeni children starve as aid is held at border

Iona Craig reports from Yemen where aid agencies cannot get vital shipments into the war-torn country already gripped by cholera outbreak

Abdulaziz al-Husseinya lies skeletal and appears lifeless in a hospital in Yemen’s western port city of Hodeidah. At the age of nine, he weighs less than one and a half stone, and is one of hundreds of thousands of children in the country suffering from acute malnutrition.

Seven million people are on on the brink of famine in war-torn Yemen, which was already in the grip of the world’s worst cholera outbreak when coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia tightened its blockade on the country last week, stemming vital aid flows.

Meet the progressives elected after Trump: America’s new political coalition

A year after Trump’s victory, Montana elected its first black mayor, New Jersey elected its first Sikh mayor and Charlotte elected its first black female mayor

Last Tuesday, voters seemed to reject much of the anger and polarisation that Donald Trump has brought in to US politics. Instead, voters elected a diverse range of candidates from progressive backgrounds. The elections, a year after Trump’s victory, saw Montana elect its first black mayor, New Jersey elected its first Sikh mayor and Charlotte elected its first black female mayor.

Here are some of the faces of America’s new political coalition.

Beyond Mamma Mia! Hollywood courted as Greece vies for slice of movie millions

Despite the success of Abba movie and The Big Blue, film-makers have failed to flock to Greece. The PM wants to change that

Nikos Giannopoulos still vividly recalls the excitement that swept the people of Amorgos when French film-makers arrived to make The Big Blue three decades ago.

“Everyone wanted to be a part of it,” says Giannopoulos, the movie’s executive producer, as he takes in the remote island’s dramatic landscape.

Patient Tite has brought swagger and pragmatism back to Brazil | Jon Cotterill

The former Corinthians coach bided his time behind Dunga and Scolari but is showing the Seleção what they have been missing since their World Cup woes

When Brazil emerge from the Wembley tunnel to face England on Tuesday evening most eyes will be on Neymar, Gabriel Jesus and the array of dazzling talent wrapped in canary yellow. Back in Brazil, the focus will be elsewhere. Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, better known as Tite – pronounced “Cheechee” – is revered in his homeland. The 56-year-old has restored the country’s pride in its national side and that counts for a lot in image-conscious Brazil.

“Tite is a great coach, one of the best in the world. He just doesn’t have the status of [Pep] Guardiola and [José] Mourinho because he’s not in Europe. But he’s as good as these guys,” says the former Brazil international Neto, a pundit for the broadcaster Bandeirantes.

Joe Schmidt’s Ireland make boldest statement on opening weekend | Andy Bull

Ireland’s resounding victory over South Africa gives them a claim on being Europe’s top side, while England and Wales laboured

A lot of stiff, sore bodies will be hauled into team meetings this Monday, as the coaches run their weekend debriefings after the first full round of the autumn internationals. The Irish will be feeling that much better about themselves than everyone else. Nothing soothes a player’s aches and pains quite like a famous victory, and their 38-3 win against South Africa was a resounding result, the statement performance of the weekend. The only time a European team have beaten South Africa by more than that was when England hammered them 53-3 in 2002. That was back when the side that went on to win the World Cup was in its pomp, and the Springboks played most of the game with 14 men because Jannes Labuschagne had been sent off.

Capturing the moment: what happened to the boys in this picture?

When the photographer Peter Widing, a close friend of mine, died last year I decided to do something the two of us had often talked about: finding the three young players from a picture I had loved since I first saw it 11 years ago

It was July 1990, and a week which started with an earthquake in the Philippines that killed 1,621 people and ended with Roger Waters performing The Wall in front of almost 500,000 people in Berlin. The businessman Donald Trump was only a few minutes away from going bankrupt.

The weather was sunny in Sweden between 15 and 21 July, pleasing all those in the middle of their holidays. The photographer Peter Widing, however, was not on holiday. He was working.

Gymnastics crisis shows again why athletes need a union fighting their corner | Sean Ingle

An independent union wouldn’t only combat well-publicised issues in British sport – it would also give athletes a voice and ensure greater transparency

Will the last Olympic sport in Britain free from bullying, sexism or racism allegations – or, indeed, disgruntled athletes – please turn out the lights? The question is especially pertinent given British Gymnastics has now joined the lengthy roll call of sporting bodies accused of allowing “a culture of fear”, with athletes and coaches afraid to speak out for fear of reprisals.

How many times must we hear that F-word before we accept that it is not just the odd snowflake who cannot handle the rough and tumble of elite sport? And, then, will we actually pledge to do something about it? With each fresh revelation we see two things with greater clarity: that the system for representing and protecting athletes is not fit for purpose; and, now more than ever, a powerful and independent union for Olympic athletes is urgently needed.

Sadio Mané’s return to Liverpool with injury fears ‘a concern’ for Jürgen Klopp
• Senegal forward is due back at Melwood early from international duty
• Mané ‘slightly feeling’ same hamstring injury that ruled him out last month

Jürgen Klopp has expressed his concern that Sadio Mané is due to return to Liverpool early from Senegal duty with issues over his hamstring.

The forward helped his country qualify for their first World Cup finals in 16 years after their 2-0 win over South Africa in Polokwane on Friday but will not now be involved in the return fixture on Tuesday after saying he was “slightly feeling” the same injury that ruled him out of five club fixtures earlier this season.

Are the Saints the best team in the NFL (and are the Giants the worst)?

It once looked like Drew Brees’s career would wind down with a bunch of yards and a heap of 7-9 seasons. But suddenly he has a defense to help him out

So much time has passed since the New Orleans Saints became the best story in the NFL it’s hard to remember their miraculous rise. That came back in the fall of 2006 just a year after Hurricane Katrina tore the roof off their Superdome and filled the city with so much water that many wondered if New Orleans would be the same again. But as the politicians failed and the government failed and the utilities failed, the football team that once broke their fans’ hearts actually came through.

The dreadful Saints, the forever losing Saints, the always-aggravating Saints returned from purgatory in San Antonio. They rode the genius of a brilliant young coach, Sean Payton, and a rejuvenated quarterback, Drew Brees, all the way to the 2006 NFC Championship Game and then they kept building to a Super Bowl win three seasons later. With a fabulous offense and a gambling defense they seemed poised to win more trophies.

Rugby union: talking points from the first round of autumn internationals

Eddie Jones missed his pillar players against Argentina, while Wales got off to a typically slow start and Scotland showed the risks attached to their open rugby

Owen Farrell will return to the England team against Australia on Saturday; the question is where. Eddie Jones played Henry Slade at 12 against Argentina but with a lack of quick ball, the Exeter centre was a marginal figure. The head coach has the option of restoring Farrell to inside-centre and moving Slade to 13, where he has excelled for the Chiefs this season, or putting Farrell at 10 in place of George Ford, who is not at his most effective when weighed down with slow possession. The decision should be made in conjunction with ball-carrying options at forward. Jones has looked for a balance between set-piece proficiency and presence in the loose, but if he puts the lack of dynamism in attack down to something more than rust, Jamie George and Harry Williams come into focus and Maro Itoje’s return would allow Courtney Lawes to move back to the back row. If Jones acts in anger, there will be a shake-up, but he is one who counts to 10 before selecting. What is evident is that when England are without the pillars of Farrell, Itoje and Billy Vunipola, their foundations shake.

Daniel Jacobs shows his class and puts Billy Joe Saunders fight in the frame | Kevin Mitchell
Eddie Hearn’s American middleweight put Golovkin defeat behind him by outpointing Luís Arias and Hearn will have some negotiating to do if Frank Warren’s Saunders wins in Canada next month

Eddie Hearn’s invasion of America was not quite on a par with that of Colin Welland, who led the Chariots of Fire charge at the 1982 Oscars with his “The British Are Coming” battlecry – but it was good enough for Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs.

The New York middleweight with a back story that would have delighted the late British scriptwriter kept his story rolling in the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in his hometown on Saturday night, comfortably seeing off the quality challenge of the previously unbeaten Luís Arias over 12 rounds that never approached the drama of Jacobs’s fight with Gennady Golovkin in the more prestigious Madison Square Garden last March.

Northern Ireland’s Michael O’Neill laments cruelty of first-leg penalty

• Referee’s decision ‘means we are missing chance to go to World Cup’
• Manager deflects questions about his international future

Michael O’Neill condemned the “cruelty” of Northern Ireland’s World Cup play-off defeat by Switzerland after they were ultimately denied a place in Russia by the controversial first-leg penalty. The Northern Ireland manager also insisted it was too soon to say whether elimination marked the end of an era for himself and several senior players.

Northern Ireland produced a vastly improved performance in Basel but a goalless draw sent Switzerland through to a fourth consecutive World Cup finals thanks to Ricardo Rodríguez’s penalty in Belfast. Rodríguez was also on hand to clear a Jonny Evans header off the line in stoppage time in the second leg, increasing Northern Ireland’s torment.

Gymnastics in crisis as Max Whitlock and others refuse to sign contracts

• Rebellion by leading athletes threatens future funding
• British Gymnastics accused of creating a culture of fear

British Gymnastics is facing a crisis with its biggest stars, including the double Olympic champion Max Whitlock, refusing to sign World Class Performance Programme contracts and being threatened with having their funding withdrawn.

An internal power struggle between the performance, commercial and management teams about the content of the contract has led to a rebellion among the athletes. The Guardian understands almost all of the team which won a record seven medals at the Rio Olympics last summer have refused to sign the contract. The entire men’s artistic squad, including Whitlock who became the first Briton to defend a world title successfully last month, have refused to sign. On the women’s side, the Olympic medallist Amy Tinkler and the European champion Ellie Downie have not signed.

Nicklas Bendtner confident Denmark can upset Republic of Ireland in Dublin
• Former Arsenal striker surprised how defensive Irish were in goalless first leg
• Denmark will go through on away goals if there is a score draw on Tuesday

The boos at the final whistle suggested that Denmark fans believed their team blew their best chance of World Cup qualification by failing to beat the Republic of Ireland in Copenhagen on Saturday but Nicklas Bendtner is confident he and his team-mates can instead reach Russia via Tuesday’s second leg in Dublin.

Bendtner confessed to being a little surprised by how defensive the Irish were on Saturday but is convinced that Martin O’Neill’s men will pursue victory with more abandon at home and, in doing so, will leave themselves vulnerable to the Danes. “I think it will be a different match,” says Bendtner.

Sebastian Vettel wins Brazilian Grand Prix after Lewis Hamilton fightback
• Vettel beats Valtteri Bottas and Kimi Raikkonen into second and third
• Hamilton finishes fourth after starting race in pit lane

The Formula One world championship may have been decided but there were still pertinent points to be made at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari had seen the title slip away but managed to lay down their marker for next season with a commanding victory at Interlagos. Lewis Hamilton, with his fourth F1 championship already under his belt, gave his all for fourth place here after starting in the pitlane, delivering a strident reminder to his rivals that his pace and racecraft are at an absolute peak.

Vettel won at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace, a commanding performance to beat the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas into second, with Kimi Raikkonen taking third. Hamilton, crowned champion in Mexico, had crashed in qualifying but fought back with a determined and aggressive drive.

Football transfer rumours: Neymar to Real Madrid in swap for Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale?

Today’s tell-all wouldn’t have it any other way

Perhaps emboldened by rumours Neymar has told some of his former Barcelona team-mates that he regrets joining Paris Saint-Germain, Florentino Pérez has decided the Brazilian might like to go Real Madrid instead. At least that’s what the Spanish website Don Balon are telling their readers, even if the story seems decidedly fanciful and unlikely. PSG have no intention of selling their star signing any time soon, but that won’t stop the Real president testing the waters by offering Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos as part of a players-plus-cash deal worth up to €400m to bring the Brazilian to the Santiago Bernabéu. Neymar was busy last night, opening the scoring for Brazil from the penalty spot in a friendly win against Japan in Lille. The Guardian’s man on the spot was David Hytner, who liked what he saw of Brazil, but was rather less impressed with their star player’s demonstration of petulance.

The Daily Mail’s ‘boys in tiaras’ story is designed to manufacture rage | Suzanne Moore
Reducing attempts to tackle homophobia in education to boys dressing in princess costumes and ‘transgender tots’ is simplistic and bullying

The men in frocks have told us that it’s fine for little boys to wear tiaras. Hallelujah hallelujah. And girls can wear firefighters’ helmets or be superheroes. Not being a Christian I never knew that this wasn’t OK in the first place. Nor did any of my children’s nursery school workers or teachers. Kids dress up when left to their own devices in whatever they fancy. It’s called imagination. But the Church of England is trying to enter the modern world with its well-meaning report, on Valuing All God’s Children, an updated document that incorporates the findings of a 2017 report by Stonewall.

The intentions are good – to tackle the homophobic, transphobic, biphobic bullying that is still rife. Of the young people surveyed in the Stonewall report, 45% say that they have been bullied at school. Many say that this has affected their plans for future education and that often teachers have not intervened. The figures on self-harming and suicide are dreadful, particularly for young trans people. It is without question right that the Church of England should try to formulate a more inclusive policy. Indeed it seems only Christian. Remember, however, that some members of the C of E do not really accept women priests or gay relationships.

For many, free movement causes more pain – and Brexit seems to be the cure | Deborah Orr
Why should we expect those struggling through austerity to be benevolent to EU workers? Until their lives are improved, Europe will remain the scapegoat

The last 16 months have made one thing clear: it’s much easier to vote to leave the EU than it is to actually leave. Remainers such as myself now find it tempting to say: “I told you so.” This, broadly speaking, is because we’re a bunch of smug know-it-alls, who haven’t even properly asked ourselves why we failed so badly to get our point across last June.

Britain once punched above its weight. Now we are irrelevant | Jonathan Powell

After Brexit and Trump, with the two pillars of its foreign policy broken, the UK’s allies can only look on in puzzlement

• Jonathan Powell was Tony Blair’s chief of staff from 1995 to 2007

Britain has lost its way and is having an identity crisis, says the New York Times. Just as Dean Acheson’s barb that Britain had lost an empire and not yet found a role hit home in 1962, so did an article last week by Steven Erlanger, the paper’s diplomatic editor and former London bureau chief, claiming no one knows what Britain is any more.

The article sparked a storm on the twittersphere and hurt rebuttals in the rightwing British press. But the counterattacks missed the point. It is not a question of whether Britain still has some good universities or the gaming industry is doing well. The question is whether Britain still has real influence in the world: and the answer to that is clearly no.

The digital war against Isis is being lost. What should be done? | Haroon K Ullah

Islamic State’s web success has come through preying on young followers’ frustrations via Tweets from the preachers such as Mohamad al-Arefe

If the west (or rather western-backed militias) has won the ground war against Islamic State, then we are still losing the digital war. Accounts such as Mohamad al-Arefe’s prove it: he has 20 million followers on Twitter – more than anyone else in the Middle East. He only follows five accounts – all versions of himself in Indonesian, Farsi, Urdu, Turkish and (perhaps most worryingly) English. He also produces popular “Snap Fatwas” on Snapchat. He is a one-man, multilingual, global extremist-leaning media network.

I’ve interviewed many Isis defectors in my work over the years, and Arefe’s name kept coming up. One in three Saudi youths follow him online, and the other two know who he is. His popularity makes him untouchable to the Saudi authorities – his arrest would likely trigger social upheaval. For years I have seen him retweet Isis fanboys gushing about the virtues of their caliphate, and encouraging Muslim youth around the world to join them.

It’s true: Conservative governments really do kill people | Zoe Williams
The claim is not hysterical: from health to disability benefits to prisons, it’s clear that Tory policies cost lives

There was a splenetic exchange on BBC Question Time last week, between an audience member and my colleague, Aditya Chakrabortty, who had pointed out that disabled people had died as a result of cuts to social security. You’re like “Donald Trump”, said a guy in the audience: the parallel was, Aditya had made a statement that was stirring, powerful, emotive and trenchant – so I guess, if we leave aside the fact that it was also true, it was pretty Trumpian.

Just as it’s verboten to call someone a liar in parliament, so there is a curious and ancient disapproval around pointing out that a state has been the direct cause of any deaths, whether of its own citizens or abroad. It is taken as hysterical overstatement (something that should only be levelled at an authoritarian regime, which takes its people out and shoots them) and pitiful naivety (a wilful misunderstanding of the business of government, to trace its policies crudely back to the lives of those who are affected by them).

Akshay Kumar: Toilet isn't a dirty word – my latest film made me love the loo | Akshay Kumar

The Bollywood star hopes that the story of Anita Narre, who shocked India by leaving her new husband because his home had no toilet, can inspire the country to tackle a sanitation crisis that blights the lives of millions

We need to change our minds about toilets. A woman from a small village in rural India, Anita Narre, shocked the nation when she left her husband two days after her wedding. But it wasn’t the speed of her decision that caused the astonishment; it was the reason. Outraged that her new home lacked a toilet, Narre refused to return until her husband built her one. Her story, which inspired my latest film, cuts to the very heart of one of the biggest crises facing my country today.

It wasn’t until I met Narre and other women like her that I understood the true scale of the issue. During my research for the film, I found out that half of India’s population – 564 million people – defecate in the open because they lack access to a toilet. But I didn’t know what this means for millions of women across the country. I had no idea about the fear these women experience every single time nature calls, or that so many women face assault and rape while going to the toilet outdoors.

Theresa May’s position is unsustainable, yet she still can’t see it | Matthew d’Ancona

Her government is in paralysis, held together by a fear of Jeremy Corbyn. But the Tories have far more to worry about

The National Theatre’s new production of NetworkLee Hall’s reworking of Paddy Chayefsky’s Oscar-winning 1976 film – is riveting not only because of Bryan Cranston’s extraordinary performance as Howard Beale, news anchorman turned raging prophet of the airwaves. Four decades on from the original movie, its warning about the power of technology to weaponise populism seems more powerful and topical than ever.

For a start, Beale’s famous roar of fury – “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more!” – feels uncomfortably close to the leave campaign’s pledge to “take back control”, or to Donald Trump’s empty promise to “make America great again”. Digital technology has proved an even more powerful engine of collectivised rage than television, and there is no shortage of demagogues longing to exploit the voters’ sense in 2017 that they have been stripped of basic human agency and dignity.

Africa has been failed by westernisation. It must cast off its subservience | Chigozie Obioma

The continent’s elites have to reject the notion that being ‘modern’ and ‘civilised’ means aping the west

One of the greatest ironies in the history of the collapse of any civilisation must be the initial interaction between Africans and Europeans. The Igbos in the east of Nigeria, for instance, initially saw the Europeans as madmen of strange appearance and ill-formed ideologies. On banking, the Igbos wondered how an adult in his right mind could hand over his possessions for others to keep for him. By the end of the 19th century, the “madman” had overturned their civilisation, and they had adopted his.

The irony is especially relevant in these times when, given the relative failures of most former western colonies, there have been renewed calls for recolonialisation. In September, American professor Bruce Gilley wrote an essay arguing for a recolonialisation of some states, replicating colonial governance of the past “as far as possible” and even building new colonies from scratch.

We're still aghast at Donald Trump – but what good has that done? | Thomas Frank

Declaring it all so ghastly isn’t going to halt these trends or remove the reprobate from the White House, writes Thomas Frank

It has been one year since the US slipped through a hole in the space-time continuum and chose as its leader the most unpopular presidential candidate of all time. Every now and then you get a bracing reminder of the crazy that has been transpiring ever since.

One of these came to me while I was flipping through Donald Trump’s 2015 campaign book, Crippled America, the cover of which displays his proud pompadour and the first few pages of which assert that “As for the presidency and the executive branch” – meaning the executive branch of Barack Obama – “the incompetence is beyond belief.”

Trial and error: 20 years of work by the readers’ editor’s office

In the fourth and final column to mark two decades of the Guardian readers’ editor role, the present incumbent looks back over the changes in that time, and forward to the challenges ahead

On 23 October 2004, as the US presidential race between George W Bush and John Kerry neared its end, the then readers’ editor, Ian Mayes, began his column: “For more than a week the Guardian has been under an unprecedented email bombardment from the United States. The stimulus was an exercise mounted by G2, the tabloid second section of the paper, to put individual voters of undeclared party allegiance in the presidential election in Clark County, Ohio – narrowly balanced between Republicans and Democrats – in touch with individual Guardian readers.

“The latter were urged to write ‘citizen to citizen, explaining why this election matters to you, and which issues you think ought to matter to the US electorate’ … To facilitate its campaign, the Guardian obtained, on payment of a fee of $25, a copy of the file of voters for Clark County. It extracted from the 85,000 names on it the 36,000 with undeclared affiliation. It then arranged, through a special website, to provide readers with the address of an individual resident of Clark County.”

Hong Kong has the 2022 Gay Games. Life for China’s LGBTI people may improve at last | Yiu-tung Suen
I’m glad that Hong Kong won the bid to host the Games. But governmental attitudes towards LGBTI equality both here and in China remain archaic

This month Hong Kong won the bid to host the 2022 Gay Games – the first time the Games will be held in Asia.

The campaign to win the Games, though, was organised by a dedicated team of volunteers rather than the territory’s government, and Hong Kong’s chief executive, Carrie Lam, offered only a lukewarm response, stating that she “noted” the news. She then cited her Catholic faith and stressed that she does not condone same-sex marriage.

Boys should be free to choose to wear a tutu, tiara or heels, and girls to wear toolbelts and superhero capes, the Church of England has said in new guidance issued to its schools.

The advice also calls on teachers to avoid using labels that might alienate children’s behaviour “just because it does not conform to gender stereotypes”.

Two years on from Paris attacks, suspect Salah Abdeslam remains silent

The 28-year-old played key role in bombings and shootings that killed 130, but has refused to talk to investigators

Two years after the Paris terror attacks, the only surviving suspect is still refusing to talk to investigators about his role in the city-wide bombings and shootings that left 130 dead.

Salah Abdeslam, France’s most closely watched prisoner, played a key part in organising logistics for the terrorists, but his exact role remains a mystery, police admit.

Ban on killer robots urgently needed, say scientists

Technology now exists to create autonomous weapons that can select and kill human targets without supervision as UN urged to outlaw them

The movie portrays a brutal future. A military firm unveils a tiny drone that hunts and kills with ruthless efficiency. But when the technology falls into the wrong hands, no one is safe. Politicians are cut down in broad daylight. The machines descend on a lecture hall and spot activists, who are swiftly dispatched with an explosive to the head.

The short, disturbing film is the latest attempt by campaigners and concerned scientists to highlight the dangers of developing autonomous weapons that can find, track and fire on targets without human supervision. They warn that a preemptive ban on the technology is urgently needed to prevent terrible new weapons of mass destruction.

Artist’s 'sexual' robin redbreast Christmas cards banned by Facebook

Jackie Charley said she ‘could not stop laughing’ after harmless festive images were blocked by Facebook because of ‘adult’ nature

Facebook has blocked the sale of a pack of Christmas cards featuring a robin redbreast because of its “sexual” and “adult” nature.

The artist, Jackie Charley, said she “could not stop laughing” when she discovered the reason the social media company would not approve the product last month.

Npower hands German parent company a £427m headache

Falling number of customers, planned price cap and tougher competition prompts big fall in value of UK assets

Npower has inflicted a €480m (£427m) writedown on its German parent company, Innogy, which it blamed on the worsening UK energy market and Prime Minister Theresa May’s price cap.

Innogy said the planned merger of npower and the UK’s second biggest energy supplier, SSE, had not affected its assessment of the reduction in the value of the business.

UK woman held in Iran jail 'angry and in tears' at Boris Johnson remarks

Husband of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe says she has health concerns and ‘lumps have been found in her breasts’

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was brought to tears of shock and anger by Boris Johnson’s inaccurate comments about the reasons for her visit to Tehran and the Iranian authorities’ use of them to justify her imprisonment, her husband said on Sunday.

In a description of a phone call with his wife, Richard Ratcliffe said that lumps had been found in her breasts that required an ultrasound scan, that her state of mind had deteriorated, and that she was now “on the verge of a nervous breakdown”. He said that she felt violated by the lies the Iranian establishment had told about her activities, but also hit out at Johnson for attempting to avoid addressing the issue. “She expressed anger at the Guards, but also at the foreign secretary, that it had become such a shambles,” Ratcliffe said.

'Way too little, way too late': Facebook's fact checkers say effort is failing

Journalists fighting spread of fake news raise concerns over possible conflicts of interest and say site has refused to disclose needed data

Journalists working for Facebook say the social media site’s fact-checking tools have largely failed and that the company has exploited their labor for a PR campaign.

Several fact checkers who work for independent news organizations and partner with Facebook told the Guardian that they feared their relationships with the technology corporation, some of which are paid, have created a conflict of interest, making it harder for the news outlets to scrutinize and criticize Facebook’s role in spreading misinformation.

Author vows book exposing Chinese influence will go ahead after publisher pulls out

Allen & Unwin had cancelled plans to print Clive Hamilton’s Silent Invasion over fear of legal action by the Chinese government

Prominent Charles Sturt University author and ethicist Professor Clive Hamilton says his book exposing the Chinese Communist party’s activities in Australia will still be published, despite Allen & Unwin cancelling plans to print it at the 11th hour.

On Monday, Hamilton revealed legal advice that the Chinese government may sue for defamation had spooked Allen & Unwin. The book, called Silent Invasion, is a comprehensive analysis of the Chinese government’s methods of asserting influence in Australia – not only in media and politics, as had been previously reported, but in a range of others areas.

Children becoming less active and independent, New Zealand study finds

A group of youngsters typically spent most of their free time at friends’ homes or food outlets, heightening health fears

Children in New Zealand are spending more and more time close to home as they become less active and less independent, a study has found.

A combined study by Auckland, Otago and Harvard University tracked a group of children aged 11-13 and found that they spent more than 50% of their non-school time within 500 metres of the family home. They typically left to visit their school, friends’ homes and food outlets such as takeaway shops and convenience stores.

'Enormous and leafy': Chinese officials flock to tree planted by Xi Jinping

Pilgrimage to the Paulownia tree in Henan province is the latest sign of a personality cult being developed around the president

Tributes to the man now seen as China’s most powerful ruler since Mao have come in myriad forms: Xi Jinping tapestries, oil paintings, pop songs, exhibitions, university departments even.

Now he has received a hardwood homage with reports that senior Communist party officials have made a pilgrimage to a tree honouring their country’s increasingly supreme leader.

Queensland council stands by $10 bounty for adult feral cat scalps

Banana shire also offers $5 for feral kitten scalps, $30 for dingoes or wild dogs and $10 for foxes, despite claims of animal cruelty

A Queensland local council will not back down on a controversial bounty that offers $10 for the scalps of feral cats, despite animal rights activists calling it cruel and unnecessary.

Banana shire introduced the bounty last month, which offers $10 for the scalp of an adult feral cat, and $5 for a kitten. Feral cats are estimated to kill 750,000 birds a day in Australia, and council staff said the bounty came in response to “an exploding population” of feral cats hunting native wildlife.

Grenfell Tower MP highlights huge social divisions in London

Kensington and Chelsea is ‘place where inequality has become a gross spectacle’, says Labour’s Emma Dent Coad

A damning report on inequality in Kensington and Chelsea has highlighted the close proximity of extreme wealth and poverty in the area around Grenfell Tower, revealing that in some parts of the borough average incomes can “drop 10 times as you cross a street”.

Five months after the Grenfell fire disaster focused attention on income and housing divisions within Kensington and Chelsea, a local MP, Emma Dent Coad, has compiled a report pinpointing the economic faultlines in the area.

Viable pipe bomb left close to Omagh Remembrance Day ceremony, police say

PSNI says device was attempt to disrupt memorial in town where 29 people were killed by Real IRA bomb in 1998

Police have confirmed that a device left close to a Remembrance Sunday commemoration in Omagh was a viable pipe bomb.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland said the bomb was an attempt to disrupt Poppy Day in the County Tyrone town, which was the site of the deadliest atrocity of the 30-year Troubles.

Sí, seniors: the Chilean city with grand plans to be the best place to grow old

Promising supervised flats, nursing homes and levelled streets, Valdivia’s Gerontological Hub project is tackling Chile’s ageing crisis head-on. Can it offset the country’s shockingly low privatised pensions?

Imagine a city that allows you to live your final years with grace and dignity. Where, if you’re alone and facing challenges but still physically and mentally independent, you can move into an apartment complex with a supervisor to provide support and organise workshops and gatherings in a community room. Where there’s an affordable transport system adapted to your needs, along with well-lit and maintained streets that won’t cause falls, as well as extended crossing times at traffic lights, roofs over the pavements to shelter you from the rain and attractive plazas and parks offering exercise equipment.

If your health is impaired, you can receive home visits from caregivers, priority healthcare at clinics and hospitals, and access to rehabilitation centres. Where there are flexible opportunities to re-enter the labour market if your pension isn’t enough. And if you can’t care for yourself and have no support network, there are well-equipped and staffed nursing homes.

Dying words: when musicians turn their last albums into self-eulogies

The release of Sharon Jones’ final album, recorded while she had terminal cancer, is the latest example of an artist saying goodbye through music

We all know we’re going to die. But only some of us have a sense of when. If those haunted with that knowledge seem cursed, in another way they’re privileged. They have the rare chance to write their own eulogies, to make a statement that gives their final days shape.

Pirelli goes down the rabbit hole with all-black cast for 2018 calendar

Styled by new Vogue editor Edward Enninful, next year’s calendar stars Naomi Campbell, Duckie Thot and others to tell the story of Alice in Wonderland

Last week, British Vogue’s new editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, launched his first issue, ushering in a new era of diversity for the fashion bible. By the weekend, Enninful had struck again, this time with the 2018 Pirelli calendar, which he styled, and cast with an all-black group of models, activists and actors.

Shot by fashion photographer Tim Walker, the calendar features Naomi Campbell, British Vogue cover star Adwoa Aboah, Sudanese-Australian model Duckie Thot, South African lawyer Thando Hopa, Whoopi Goldberg, Lupita Nyong’o and RuPaul, who were transformed by Enninful into characters from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Enninful took the job of styling the calendar before he was appointed editor, and though the timing of the two launches is coincidence, it does address a palpable shift in mood.

'It?? is what’s outside that counts': how northern style became the quintessence of the British identity makeup

Morrissey’s flowers; Paul Morley’s rollnecks. As the exhibition North: Fashioning Identity opens in London, one sartorially savvy export dissects the style signatures of the region’s men

In 1986, 31 years before the Tory conference set up camp to bury Theresa May alive in its industrial shell, the G-Mex centre in Manchester hosted the Festival of the Tenth Summer. Commemorating the Sex Pistols’ 1976 date at the Lesser Free Trade Hall, the unofficial starter-gun of punk parochialisation, top billing was shared between a royal flush of local heroes: the Smiths, New Order, A Certain Ratio and The Fall. The audience wore a detailed array of micro-tribal uniforms in their honour – tattered Levi’s, national health specs, secondhand car coats, Adidas Gazelles, flicks, quiffs, short back and sides – through which you could identify their record collections, drinking habits, library cards, football clubs and sex drives. All the important stuff.

I was a tatty 15-year-old south Manchester schoolboy at the time, looking among the glorious rabble for an identity that might fit. A couple of mates and I hung around outside in Nike cagoules, breathing in the solemnly euphoric, superior air of northern style, flecked back then with the scent of Breaker lager, Benson & Hedges, Paco Rabanne and deadheaded flower arrangements plucked from the beds of Whitworth Park to slip into back pockets, just like Morrissey. We identified songs by reverberating bass lines and cheer alone. Piling out late into the night, every man looked amazing, in his own tastefully wonky way.

'Dose as small as a grain of sand can kill you': alarm after Canada carfentanil bust

Discovery of 42kg of opioid, described as 100 times more toxic than fentanyl, in Toronto home throws spotlight on dangerous and poorly understood drug

It was a carbon monoxide alarm that brought the Canadian authorities to the house in Liatris Drive, a quiet residential street lined with manicured gardens. As firefighters checked over the house to ensure its inhabitants were safe, something else caught their eye: kilograms of a mysterious powder sitting in the basement.

Soon afterwards, the police arrived at the house in Pickering, near Toronto, with a search warrant. They seized 33 identical handguns – and 53kg of the unidentified white and yellow powder.

Amazon's Kindle turns 10: have ebooks clicked with you yet?

A decade after Jeff Bezos launched a revolution in reading – and a $1bn money-spinner – much has changed in the book trade. But how has it affected readers?

George W Bush was in the White House, Chris Brown was topping the Billboard chart and Jeff Bezos … well, on 19 November 2007, Jeff Bezos was doing “the most important thing we’ve ever done” and launching the Amazon Kindle.

The first Kindles were chunky things about the same size as a paperback, weighing a smidgeon less than 300g. They had wonky little keyboards and a little wheel for scrolling up and down a grey and black screen. But Bezos was never aiming for a flashy design. Speaking at the launch in New York, he said that all he wanted was a device that could “disappear”.

The 100 best nonfiction books: No 93 – Hydriotaphia, Urn Burial, or A Brief Discourse of the Sepulchral Urns Lately Found in Norfolk (1658)
Sir Thomas Browne earned his reputation as a ‘writer’s writer’ with this dazzling short essay on burial customs

Sir Thomas Browne is one of those major-minor figures in the story of these great books, a writer whose afterlife vindicates the power of an enchanted, idiosyncratic, and – the gift that holds one key to the success of the writing life – deeply humane imagination. Browne’s reputation among admirers as various as Johnson, Coleridge, De Quincey, Lytton Strachey and, most recently, WG Sebald confirms him as an early example of “the writer’s writer”.

Browne himself, whose life spanned the 17th century, was a learned, proto-Romantic, nomadic figure with a scholarly, metropolitan pedigree. He told John Aubrey (No 54 in this series) that he had been born in Cheapside, educated at Oxford, then “spent some years in foreign parts” before joining the college of physicians. He also proudly reports that he was “knighted September 1671, when Charles II, the Queen and court” visited Norwich, the city to which he had retired in old age. Another fan, Dr Johnson, who wrote a brief “life” of Browne, supplied a good summary of his subject’s inimitable style, which the plain-spoken critic described as “a tissue of many languages; a mixture of heterogeneous words, brought together from distant regions, with terms originally appropriated to one art, and drawn by violence into the service of another. He must, however, be confessed to have augmented our philosophical diction; and, in defence of his uncommon words and expressions, we must consider, that he had uncommon sentiments, and was not content to express, in many words, that idea for which any language could supply a single term.”

Iron Bridge gets £3.6m facelift as age catches up with 250-year-old arch

English Heritage launches crowdfunding appeal to secure the future of world’s oldest single-span cast-iron bridge

The first ominous cracks appeared in the apparently fragile arch of ironwork slung across the river Severn by Abraham Darby III within three years of its construction in 1779. Among engineers, royalty, artists, writers, aristocratic travellers and a Swedish spy who flocked to see the Iron Bridge, the world’s first single-span cast-iron bridge, there were many who looked at the lacy structure and predicted its imminent collapse.

The bridge has confounded the sceptics by surviving everything weather, floods and geology could fling at it for almost 250 years, while other Severn bridges were repeatedly washed away. English Heritage has now launched a project to secure its future, its most expensive conservation scheme since it was hived off from Historic England to become an independent charity in 2015.

‘Learning to live’: why sophrology is the new mindfulness

Feeling stressed, anxious, burnt out? Time to pause Headspace and allow us to introduce a technique from the 1960s instead

We have welcomed mindfulness so wholeheartedly into our collective wellbeing consciousness that there are now more than 1,300 mindful apps to choose from. In busy cities, you’re never more than six words away from mindfulness. However, modern life dictates that when something reaches saturation point, it must be replaced by something new. So pause Headspace and allow us to introduce “sophrology”.

In Switzerland and France, sophrology is already widely offered to students at school or university as a way to acquire life and stress-management skills. Celebrity fans include Arianna Huffington and French tennis player Stéphane Robert. The French rugby team reportedly used sophrology while training for the last World Cup.

Jaron Lanier: ‘The solution is to double down on being human’
He’s the Silicon Valley visionary who gave us virtual reality. Now, in a new memoir-cum-manifesto, Jaron Lanier recounts his sad, unusual childhood and calls for a re-evaluation of our ties with the digital environment

Jaron Lanier has written a book about virtual reality, a phrase he coined and a concept he did much to invent. It has the heady title Dawn of the New Everything. But it’s also a tale of his growing up and when you read it, what you really want to talk to him about is parenting. Lanier is 57, but his childhood as he describes it was so sad and so creative and so extreme, it makes him almost seem fated to pursue alternative worlds.

Lanier’s parents met in New York. His mother, Lilly, blond and light-skinned and Jewish, had somehow talked her way out of a “pop-up concentration camp” in Vienna after the Anschluss, aged 15. The family of his father, Ellery, had escaped a murderous pogrom in Ukraine. They met as part of a circle of artists in Greenwich Village in the 1950s. Lilly was a painter and a dancer, Ellery an architect, but when Jaron was born in 1960 they moved to El Paso, Texas, right on the border with Mexico. Lanier was never sure why, but he believes it was an effort, given their own childhoods, to “live as obscurely as possible”, off grid. His mother did not trust American schooling, so he went across the border to a Montessori school in Mexico each day; then, after a change of heart, to a Texas public high school, where he was bullied.

Never underestimate the power of saying sorry – especially if you're a politician

A new app to help people apologise to each other is being launched. It may seem foolish but in political, business and private life we should embrace the S-word

Apologising is embarrassingly old-fashioned. Not the concept itself, I mean, but the execution. Think about it: when you want to apologise to someone you typically have to use your vocal cords, an analogue, inefficient form of technology. And while it is, of course, possible to email, tweet or text your apology – complete with sad-face emoji – none of these platforms were really designed with the complexities of contrition in mind. Shockingly, there just isn’t a sorry-specific messaging option available. Thank God, then, for Greta Van Susteren, who spotted this gap in the market and is launching an app called, you guessed it, Sorry.

Van Susteren, a former US cable news anchor and the 94th most powerful woman in the world according to Forbes’s 2016 list, recently announced this exciting app-ology innovation via Facebook. The service launches on Tuesday and will let you privately “accept or reject apologies from a friend”. So, let’s say, purely hypothetically, that you routinely hit the snooze button 19 times in a row every morning, waking your partner up each time. Well, now you will be able to apologise via an app and, in turn, they can choose whether to accept this apology. I know that alone sounds like life-changing stuff, but there’s more! You can also vote on whether you “accept or reject apologies of public figures”. So it’s basically like The X Factor, then, but for public regret.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

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

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

UK mining firm in court over claims it mistreated environmental activists

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2017 on course to be deadliest on record for land defenders

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

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

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

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

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

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

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

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

When two Dutch journalists travelled to the DRC to report on illegal gold mining in the vast Okapi wildlife reserve, they ended up running for their lives

Conflict is never far away in the Democratic Republic of Congo – a country rich in natural resources such as gold, diamonds, coltan and tin – and the country is on the brink of a new civil war. Tensions have been rising since December, when President Joseph Kabila postponed the elections.

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

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

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

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

Brand New cancel UK tour following sexual misconduct claims

Dates in London, Glasgow and Dublin have been scrapped in light of accusations against frontman Jesse Lacey

US rock band Brand New have cancelled their upcoming UK tour following sexual misconduct allegations against frontman Jesse Lacey. On Sunday, Lacey issued a statement responding to the accusations, in which he apologised for his actions.

Lacey had been accused of soliciting naked pictures from an underage girl and asking her to watch him masturbate over Skype in 2002. In a Facebook post, the woman claimed Lacey “manipulated the hell out of me, demanded specific poses/settings/clothing, demeaned me, and made it clear that my sexuality was the only thing I had to offer”. She said the requests for pictures began when she was 15 and Lacey was 24. Several other women later came forward with similar allegations.

Billie Jean King: ‘Be ahead of your time – that’s what you have to do’
The tennis champion’s lifelong fight for equality and freedom is celebrated in a new film about the Battle of the Sexes. She talks about not being comfortable in her own skin until she was 51, and why millennials give her hope

In 1955, when she was 12 years old, Billie Jean King says she had an epiphany. “I was daydreaming about my little tiny universe of tennis, and I thought to myself: ‘Everybody’s wearing white shoes, white socks, white clothes, playing with white balls, everybody who plays is white. Where is everybody else?’” she recalls. “That was the moment I decided to fight for equality and freedom and equal rights and opportunities for everyone. Everyone. Not just girls. Everyone.”

Now, 62 years later, the most sensational moment of her long, boundary-smashing tennis career has been turned into a film. Directed by Little Miss Sunshine’s Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, Battle of the Sexes tells of the run-up to that infamous high-stakes 1973 match between King (Emma Stone) and the showboating, self-confessed “male chauvinist pig” Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell), in front of 30,000 live spectators and a colossal Superbowl-sized TV audience. But those expecting a straightforward sports movie may be surprised by its intimacy, as it draws a parallel between the weight of having to prove the worth of all female athletes in that one match, and the distress of hiding a secret affair with her female hairdresser from both her husband Larry and the world.

Liz Smith, queen of New York gossip columns, dies aged 94

Liz Smith, the syndicated gossip columnist whose mixture of banter, barbs, and bon mots about the glitterati helped her climb the A-list as high as many of the celebrities she covered, has died at the age of 94.

Joni Evans, Smith’s literary agent, said she died of natural causes.

Björk: ‘People miss the jokes. A lot of it is me taking the piss out of myself’

Icelandic icon Björk is in positive mood with her new album, Utopia. In her home town Reykjavik, she gives us a sneak listen, and discusses creative control, the trouble with men – and why she started Friday flute club

It’s quite hard talking to Björk about her music. This is for a few reasons, the most important of which is that she doesn’t make music to talk about it. She makes music because that is what she does (“I write one song per month,” she says, “sometimes two months”), and usually the whole picture of an album doesn’t emerge for her until very late in the process.

“OK, I will put my head into the place where I have to talk about me,” Björk says, shifting in her seat. She is feeling “a bit scruffy” – she means rough around the edges – after a night out at a gig (her friends’, twins Kria and Kristin: “Kria plays these kind of cello loops, it’s really meditative”).

Slow-cooked leek pappardelle with crispy white beans and lemon

This recipe sings in its simplicity and depth of flavour. Plus: five golden rules for cooking pasta

There is no food I can evangelise about more than pasta. The toothsome chew, a silky sauce that hugs each piece … It cooks in little more than 10 minutes, it’s an unrivalled vehicle for flavour and it sates the appetite whatever the season (but most excellently as the months grow colder).

As a young chef, I spent a lot of time in a kitchen that championed Italian cuisine, so my cooking is rooted in that tradition. There are five things I learned there about cooking pasta. For keen cooks, pasta enthusiasts and Italians, none of this will be new, and many will have their own ideas, but these are the things that work for me:

'I feel like I'm in a different time': Thames Lido review

Unused since its closure in 1974, the pool has been restored and refurbished to a quirky and glamorous degree

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, swimming was a spectator sport. Onlookers lined the edges of municipal swimming baths to watch feats of endurance swimming, “underwater ballets”, and to marvel at high dives. Celebrities such as Captain Matthew Webb, fresh from conquering the English Channel, and Annette Kellermann, later dubbed the Million Dollar Mermaid, thrilled the crowds.

Step forward in time to 2017 and my visit to Thames Lido. I am here in a beautifully refurbished Edwardian swimming pool, swimming up and down what is effectively a glass box, as people sit eating their breakfast behind a vast glass wall. I splash around in front of them feeling like I’m back in a different time. Every now and again diners look up from their cappuccinos and lazily cast their eyes towards the water – and me.

My partner says she loves me but that sex is not a priority

I’m feeling rejected – especially since she has a colourful sexual past. Should I settle for the odd cuddle?

I met my partner just over a year ago. Sex and communication were fairly good at first, but now she often says she is too tired, stressed or ill. She says sex is not her priority and hardly ever initiates it, although she is keen on cuddling and maybe a little petting. She says she loves me a lot and that she needs more time to feel more deeply passionate. I am finding it frustrating, and feel neglected and misled: she has a rather colourful sexual past and has been involved in many casual sexual encounters.

People often enter relationships for reasons that do not include sex, or where sex is a low priority. You are receiving many clear signs that she is drawn to you for different reasons, but you seem to be finding it hard to accept this. Instead, you are framing it in the following light: “Lots of people before me had great regular sex with her – why not me? What’s wrong with me? Why is she even with me?” But a plethora of partners in a person’s past does not mean the sex was always good, or even consistent. Perhaps she finds it difficult to maintain interest with anyone at all because she is indeed stressed, anxious or depressed.

Can men get postnatal depression?
More than a quarter of new fathers in a new study showed significant levels of depression – what are the causes, and what can they do about it?

Men don’t go through pregnancy or childbirth. Their hormone levels don’t nosedive. They don’t get sore nipples. What exactly have they got to be depressed about? Quite a lot, according to research from Sweden showing that, over the past 10 years, a significant number of men have struggled with the transition to fatherhood.

This latest research tries to quantify just how many men get postnatal depression. Previous studies have found between 4% and 10% of men, while, in this smallish sample of 447 Swedish fathers who volunteered (and may therefore not represent your average dad), a surprising 28% of men had symptoms that scored above mild levels of depression. Overall, 4% had moderate depression. Fewer than one in five fathers who were depressed sought help, even though a third of those had thought about harming themselves. While women in the UK are often asked a series of questions that screen for postnatal depression (which affects up to 13% of women), the mental health of fathers is rarely assessed.

Collected in her book Sisters (Hoxton Mini Press £14.95) the photos examine the differences and similarities between the siblings’ relationships, and tells the stories of their individual bonds. “Sisterhood is one of the most complex human relationships, but I think it is so often overlooked,” says Harris-Taylor, who was inspired by her own tempestuous, continuously changing relationship with her sister. “The fact that they spend a lifetime developing together makes it a fascinating and unusual example of human development and dynamics.”
