Dan Reynolds: «Quei mal di schiena atroci, poi la diagnosi: spondilite»

Che un personaggio famoso decida di parlare della propria malattia è cosa rara. Ancora più insolito è se si tratta di una rockstar nel pieno del successo internazionale, giovane e con una patologia seria, con la quale dovrà convivere tutta la vita. Dan Reynolds, 30enne frontman del gruppo indie rock americano Imagine Dragons, invece ha deciso di annunciare durante un’esibizione che soffre di spondilite anchilosante, rara e poco nota malattia reumatica che colpisce proprio in giovane età. Le sue motivazioni e la sua «storia da paziente» in quest’intervista, in esclusiva al «Corriere» per l’Italia.

Palestinians to bury 58 people killed in US embassy protests

Funerals held as Palestinians mark the anniversary of the ‘Nakba’, or catastrophe

Funerals are to be held in Gaza for the 58 people killed by Israeli forces as tens of thousands protested along the frontier against the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

The funerals were expected to take place in the coastal enclave on Tuesday, coinciding with the day Palestinians mark the “Nakba”, or catastrophe, commemorating the more than 700,000 people who fled or were expelled from their homes in the 1948 war surrounding Israel’s creation.

Iraq's shock election result may be turning point for Iran

Result is blow to US, but Iran will also lose out after Iraq’s protest against rule by proxy

The unexpectedly poor showing of Haider al-Abadi, Iraq’s prime minister, in parliamentary elections has dealt a blow to US influence in the country. It was a poor return for American backing for the Baghdad government’s drive to extirpate Islamic State and regain lost territory.

But the bigger loser may be Iran, whose allies in Iraq’s Shia militias known as the Popular Mobilisation Forces were pushed into second place by Moqtada al-Sadr, the veteran nationalist. Put simply, Sadr believes Iraqis should run Iraqi affairs – not Washington, not Tehran and not their proxies.

Mexico’s education reforms flounder as more spent on PR than teacher training

Exclusive: how rightwing groups wield secret 'toolkit' to plot against US unions

Internal documents obtained by the Guardian reveal a nationwide drive to persuade union members to quit and stop paying dues

Rightwing activists are launching a nationwide drive to persuade public sector trade union members to tear up their membership cards and stop paying dues, posing a direct threat to the progressive movement in America.

Documents obtained by the Guardian reveal that a network of radical conservative thinktanks spanning all 50 states is planning direct marketing campaigns targeted personally at union members to encourage them to quit. The secret push, the group hopes, could cost unions up to a fifth of their 7 million members, lead to the loss of millions of dollars in income and undermine a cornerstone of US progressive politics.

Has wine gone bad?

‘Natural wine’ advocates say everything about the modern industry is ethically, ecologically and aesthetically wrong – and have triggered the biggest split in the wine world for a generation.

By Stephen Buranyi

If you were lucky enough to dine at Noma, in Copenhagen, in 2011 – which had just been crowned as the “best restaurant in the world” – you might have ordered one of its signature dishes: a single, raw, razor clam from the North Sea, in a foaming pool of aqueous parsley, topped with a dusting of horseradish snow. It was a technical and conceptual marvel intended to evoke the harsh Nordic coastline in winter.

But almost more remarkable than the dish itself was the drink that accompanied it: a glass of cloudy, noticeably sour white wine from a virtually unknown vineyard in France’s Loire Valley, which was available at the time for about £8 a bottle. It was certainly an odd choice for a £300 menu. This was a so-called natural wine – made without any pesticides, chemicals or preservatives – the product of a movement that has triggered the biggest conflict in the world of wine for a generation.

Margot Kidder obituary
Superman star whose performance as the go-getting reporter Lois Lane brought pizzazz to the blockbuster superhero films

“You’ll believe a man can fly,” promised the advertising campaign for the 1978 blockbuster Superman: The Movie. None of that technical razzle-dazzle would have counted for much, though, without the lively rapport between the film’s stars: Christopher Reeve as Superman and his alter-ego Clark Kent, and Margot Kidder, who has died aged 69, as the go-getting, chain-smoking reporter Lois Lane. They brought a screwball vivacity reminiscent of The Lady Eve to their scenes together, with Kidder playing Barbara Stanwyck to Reeve’s Henry Fonda. Her smart, sassy performance never allowed Lois to become merely the love interest or damsel in distress, even when those were her superficial functions in the script. In her hands, Lois was nobody’s fool, give or take her inability, necessary to the narrative, to spot that only a pair of glasses and a Spandex bodysuit distinguished Clark from Superman.

A highlight was Lois’s nighttime tour above Manhattan (or Metropolis, as the film called it) on Superman’s arm. Their romance was wisely placed at the centre of the sequel, which was shot back-to-back with the first movie. Though Kidder, never shy of speaking her mind, bemoaned publicly the sacking of the director Richard Donner in favour of Richard Lester for Superman II (1980), the second picture was a superior showcase for her range. Early scenes, as she tries to confirm her newfound suspicions that Clark and Superman are one and the same by placing herself in danger, ripe to be rescued, are brimming with comic pizzazz. Later, when Superman sacrifices his powers in order to live with Lois as a mortal, she plays this highly charged scenario with tenderness and subtlety. Even now, the film remains a clear pinnacle in the overcrowded superhero genre.

Hunger Highway: desperate Venezuelans take hard road to Brazil

Venezuela holds elections on Sunday but 5,000 people a day are leaving – many trekking a 215km route through the Amazon

Daniel Guerra hit the Hunger Highway at dawn hoping to steal a march on the punishing heat of Brazil’s northern savannah and consign 21st-century socialism to his past.

What the uncanny parallels between Ghomeshi and Schneiderman reveal

The Eric Schneiderman and Jian Ghomeshi cases highlight how ‘feminist’ men accused of assault cast a smokescreen not just over society, but also over the women who claimed abuse

The women’s stories of abuse mirror one another so closely, you can almost hear the echo.

“All of a sudden, he just slapped me.”

'World's oldest basketball court': Canadian town fights for its place in history

The court in St Stephen, New Brunswick, was first played on in 1893. Now residents wants its importance recognized

On a December day in 1893, a team of players descended into a musty Paris basement, weaving carefully around the court’s iron pillars to lob a ball into fruit baskets hung at each end.

Historians of sport have long held that the gymnasium in a YMCA building in the French capital is the world’s oldest basketball court still in use.

Jetpacks: why aren't we all flying to work?

It’s not as if the tech hasn’t shown promise, but jet propulsion has never become part of our daily lives. Here’s why

Those of a certain age may remember the opening ceremony of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. As Rafer Johnson lit the eternal flame, a man strapped into a rocket-propelled backpack launched himself across the arena above the ticker tape and balloons, landing gracefully on the track before a TV audience of 2.5 billion.

It was a moment of triumph seeming to herald a new age in which, finally, teased for decades by Buck Rogers’ “degravity belt” and King of the Rocketmen, we’d all soon be fizzing off to work with our own personal jetpacks. Even Isaac Asimov confidently predicted that by the turn of the century, they would be “as common as a bicycle”.

Grenfell rally demands urgent removal of flammable cladding

Protesters express continued distrust of the authorities as MPs debate terms of public inquiry

Survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire have urged ministers to urgently strip flammable cladding from hundreds of tower blocks across the country, saying it is unacceptable that people still live in homes wrapped in materials similar to those that burned so fiercely on 14 June 2017.

Karim Mussilhy, whose uncle died in the blaze, and Natasha Elcock, who escaped from the 11th floor, made the demand at a rally in Parliament Square attended by people who escaped the blaze and the families of victims.

Leave the Markles alone. The need for gossip shouldn’t lead to snobby trashing | Gaby Hinsliff
Thomas Markle shouldn’t be shamed out of attending his daughter’s wedding. The rest of us should be mortified he was put in such a situation

It’s not easy turning a wedding, the heartwarming tale of two lovers wanting to live happily ever after, into something that makes everyone involved feel absolutely terrible.

But we seem to have managed it, with days to spare. Meghan Markle’s elderly father is now said to be considering pulling out of the royal wedding, following embarrassment over the publication of some hammy staged photos of him supposedly being measured for his suit. Thomas Markle, who is 73 and recovering from a heart attack, may not now be walking her down the aisle and no, this isn’t the time for arguing that it’s sexist for men to “give” their daughters away anyway; it’s her wedding, not yours, and she should have been able to involve her family in whatever way she chooses.

I love Eurovision, but Jerusalem 2019 will be no cause for celebration | Michael Segalov
Israeli winner Netta declaring Jerusalem the next host city struck more than a note of discord, especially after this week’s bloodshed

It wasn’t immediately obvious to me why I felt a sudden sense of discomfort just before midnight on Saturday. Standing in a packed-out square in Lisbon with thousands of others, I was watching the Eurovision final on a giant screen, the results from the night slowly rolling in. Having spent the preceding week with the UK’s contestant, SuRie, initially I thought I was just gutted for her after a wash of low scores and a stage invasion. But looking around, as Netta, the Israeli entry, took to the stage, overjoyed and victorious – the Israeli flags being waved all around me suddenly took on a more sinister tone.

Eurovision is traditionally held in the country that won the previous year, and when Netta gave her short acceptance speech, she made it clear: “Next year in Jerusalem.” Whether this was an off-the-cuff remark, or high command decision being communicated to the world, really doesn’t matter. It seems that, despite Tel Aviv being the country’s cultural capital and queer-friendly city, it would be in the disputed city of Jerusalem that next year’s event will be held. On the day of Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day), the optics of this was no accident. This controversial day in the Israeli calendar marks the date that the whole of Jerusalem was brought under Israeli rule. To others, it marks the further ongoing occupation of Palestinian land. Now it will be the host of the world’s largest live music competition – it makes the light-hearted event feel a little more dark.

At last, tyranny has ended in Malaysia. Now let’s build an open society | Nurul Izzah Anwar
My father, former deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim, was among thousands who suffered under the Barisan Nasional party

Last Wednesday, people power in Malaysia led to the destruction of the Barisan Nasional’s (National Front) 61-year hold on power and a peaceful democratic transition. Standing on the threshold of history, it felt like our own Berlin wall had finally come down. Ours is a country that has been ruled by only one dominant party since independence in 1957, with BN “winning” – and often stealing – 13 consecutive general elections.

Rita Ora was right to apologise – she got bisexual women all wrong | Arwa Mahdawi

The singer’s new single, Girls, was supposed to be a ‘bisexual anthem’, but it has taken a lot of flak for its retrograde stereotypes, which further the misconception that bisexuality is just about sex, not love

Look, I’m not angry. I’m just disappointed. When I heard Ora was coming out with what has been called a “bisexual bop” I had high hopes. Ora collaborating with Cardi B, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha to sing about the joys of snogging women? What was there not to like?

As it turns out, a lot. While Ora’s latest single, Girls, released last Friday, is catchy, it has also taken a lot of flak for perpetuating problematic bisexual stereotypes. Such was the backlash to Girls that Ora apologised on Twitter for the song’s content. She clarified that she has “had romantic relationships with women and men … [and] would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people”.

Africa's female rising stars of business are still seen as second-class citizens | Afua Osei

Despite the compelling narrative about African women becoming titans of industry, sexism and inequality make scaling up impossible for many entrepreneurs

Africa is building up a glowing reputation as the global leader in female entrepreneurship. Last year, MasterCard released its celebratory Index of Women Entrepreneurs to much fanfare. Uganda and Botswana topped the list, which further pushed the new narrative that women are rising above adverse circumstances to create businesses that will rev the engine of growth in sub-Saharan Africa.

Unfortunately, few have been willing to admit that this story, satisfying though it may be, is incomplete at best. The high levels of labour force participation that earn commendations mask the persistence of significant, structural limitations on female business-owners.

Club rugby’s inability to sell itself calls for planning and innovation | Robert Kitson

Staging the Champions Cup final in Bilbao showed the benefit of taking a risk or two instead of clinging to the tried and tested

The word final is a relative term in rugby. Leinster’s European Champions Cup victory in Bilbao should logically have represented a high-profile full stop but for many it is not yet the end of the season – far from it. The Premiership and Pro14 have yet to play their semi-finals, the Top 14 final in France is not until 2 June and this summer’s hectic international tour schedule would cause even a travel agent’s head to spin.

Talk to the Champions Cup organisers and they freely admit they would prefer their tournament to mirror football’s Champions League final: a natural conclusion to the season for every club in Europe. As things stand Leinster have just won the ultimate prize but, as with Saracens last year, now have to prove themselves all over again. It is a bit like hosting a royal wedding and then arranging the stag night on the subsequent weekend.

Gareth Southgate’s time has come to stick to his England principles | Barney Ronay

Southgate is picking his World Cup squad and there are players he should choose even if they lack international experience

It is that time of year again. The hawthorns are in bloom. The cow parsley is high. Men in shorts have already begun to gather cautiously in public places, puffing their chests, milk-white ankles proudly bared. And by Wednesday lunchtime mid-summer will make an early appearance with the announcement of an England squad for the World Cup in Russia.

It is generally assumed Gareth Southgate is getting his selection for Russia 2018 out there a little early for the simple reason the squad basically picks itself. In the best possible sense this has become the most managed, carefully pondered England era, with no place for the last-second celebrity metatarsal dash, the drama of the Hoddle-style hotel squad countdown or any kind of Crouchie-doing-the-robot for Prince William triumphalism.

Are we in danger of being seduced by a Tiger Woods fairytale? | Ewan Murray

Woods has performed brilliantly simply to be competitive again but his shortcomings are obvious

There is a recurring danger of sporting dreams blurring reality. The hype around Tiger Woods was once justified but the reality of recent months applies context often missing in the giddy analysis. Woods has performed brilliantly simply to be competitive again after physical trouble so acute he struggled to sit down for dinner. But there, for now, the story ends.

Woods’ latest outing at the Players Championship had him finish seven –almost two shots per round – adrift of the winner Webb Simpson. The 42-year-old tied 55th the previous weekend in Charlotte, 32nd at the Masters and trailed the victorious Rory McIlroy by eight at the conclusion of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Everton set to let Sam Allardyce go and target Marco Silva as successor

• Portuguese was preferred candidate back in October
• Board to meet about Allardyce and Rooney in midweek

Sam Allardyce is set to leave Everton this week with the former Watford and Hull City manager Marco Silva a leading candidate to replace him.

Allardyce is scheduled to meet Everton’s major shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, in the coming days and his departure is expected to be announced by the end of the week. Allardyce is six months into the 18-month contract he secured in November and oversaw an eighth-place finish in the Premier League. But fierce opposition to his management style among the club’s supporters, allied to the hierarchy’s desire for a fresh start following a dreadful season, is likely to result in the 63-year-old leaving with a final year’s pay-off of around £6m.

How Chelsea left Manchester City trailing to stand on brink of WSL title | Suzanne Wrack

Chelsea can win the Women’s Super League on Tuesday to crown a season in which their experience, squad depth and goalscoring powers have given them the edge

The final Women’s Super League One season before the autumn rebrand and restructure draws to a close this weekend. On Tuesday night, Chelsea will be crowned champions with one game to play if they avoid defeat at Bristol City. That is not a conclusion everyone had seen coming.

At the end of January the top tier looked very much like the men’s Premier League. Manchester City were dominant, having won all seven league games and 17 in a row across three competitions. Although Chelsea had dropped two points, it felt as though the title was City’s to lose.

From Grange Hill to Press Gang: which are the best teen shows ever?

Teen shows have long held their own in the TV schedules, thanks to gritty issues such as bullying, drugs and sex mixed with melodrama. But what are the definitive shows?

Steven Moffat’s 1990s smart-mouthed comedy-drama about kids running a newspaper is the reason thousands of 40-somethings are now journalists. The teens in this show are socially responsible campaigners for truth, rather just self-absorbed or romantically obsessed. Except for Dexter Fletcher’s Spike, a cocky New Yorker who is sent to the Junior Gazette as punishment for delinquency. Lightning sparks between him and Julia Sawalha’s Lynda Day, the nails editor who spouts horny “hold the front page” dialogue like a Fisher-Price Sorkin character. While they drive each other crazy, the show gets on with tackling the issues of the day; drug addiction and death are not stepped around. Most of all, Moffat treated his characters and the audience like adults, which was thrilling, and confidently beat the path that others would follow. JR

'Vomitive. Pathetic': Lars Von Trier film prompts mass walkouts at Cannes

More than 100 people said to have exited early from a screening for The House That Jack Built, which features scenes of duckling mutilation and child killing

Danish director Lars Von Trier’s much-anticipated return to Cannes has resulted – with some predictability – in controversy, as a screening of his new film The House That Jack Built was met with mass walkouts.

The blackly comic thriller, which stars Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman, follows the murder spree of a serial killer over the course of several decades. Advance word on the film suggested that it would feature scenes of sadistic violence and brutality, with Cannes director Thierry Fremaux saying that it featured “a subject so controversial” that it could only appear in an out-of-competition slot at the festival.

Glenn Branca: punk composer who turned minimalism maximal

Branca, who has died aged 69, turned guitars into permanently climaxing choirs of noise – and blew apart the world of minimalist composition

The experimental guitarist and composer Glenn Branca died on Sunday at age 69, leaving a weighty and singular legacy. Branca helped define New York cool. Even among the many underground artists, musicians and misfits who populated downtown Manhattan in the 1970s and 80s, he stood out as one of the weirdest. His music – with its stark sheets of minimalism and overwhelming guitar-oriented symphonies – filtered into rock and noise, and it’s hard to imagine bands such as Sonic Youth and Swans without him. Originally trained in theatre, with no formal musical education, he brought intense drama to experimental music.

Branca’s sound was “the most radical, intelligent response to punk and the avant garde I’ve ever seen”, says Lee Ranaldo, who played with Branca many times, including on his essential early albums Symphony No 1 (Tonal Plexus) and The Ascension. “He could sneer better than anyone,” recalls Ned Sublette, who also played on those records.

Rita Ora apologises after LGBT criticism of her song Girls

Rita Ora has apologised after her new song Girls, featuring all-star guests Cardi B, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha, was criticised for a “tone-deaf” approach to same-sex relationships.

The song’s lyrics reference Ora’s bisexuality, saying, “I’m 50-50 and I’m never going to hide it,” before going into a chorus that rebuffs a man’s advances, reading: “Red wine, I just want to kiss girls.” A line from Cardi B reads: “I could be your lipstick just for one night.”

The borrowers: why Finland's cities are havens for library lovers

Helsinki’s state-of-the-art Oodi library will stand opposite parliament and boast a cinema, recording studio and makerspace. It’s a perfect fit for a literate nation taking public learning to the next level

“A library card was the first thing that was mine, that I had ever owned,” says Nasima Razmyar. The daughter of a former Afghani diplomat, Razmyar arrived in Finland with her family in 1992 as a refugee fleeing political unrest. Unable to speak the language, with scant resources, and trying to make sense of the strange new city she found herself in, she was stunned to discover she was entitled to a library card that would grant her books – for free. Her appreciation of the privilege has not faded: “I still have that library card in my wallet today,” she says proudly.

How sex toys are being redesigned to help survivors of sexual assault

A healthy sex life can feel unattainable for survivors of sexual assault. But new products, from brushes to non-penetrative tools, are giving women a powerful way to reclaim their bodies

For many survivors of sexual assault, a happy sex life feels out of reach. While much of the treatment on offer is focused on emotional and psychological healing, people are often left to work out for themselves what sex after trauma looks like for them.

But some people are working to change that, and are reconfiguring and reappropriating sex toys as tools for healing. Last year, the Dutch designer Nienke Helder created a range of objects to help survivors reprogramme how they deal with physical sensations. Drawing on her own experience, she wanted to redress what she saw as the “clinical” approach to recovery currently employed. “The tools are an opportunity to explore your personal sexual recovery,” she says. Her collection, titled Sexual Healing, includes a horsehair brush to explore touch and tickling, a mirror designed to help you better view your vulva, as well as a pelvic device that vibrates when your muscles are too tense, and a bean-shaped sensor that lights up if you’re breathing too fast, to remind you to slow down and relax. “By getting biofeedback through the tools, you can visualise what kind of processes are happening inside your body, which can help you understand in which situations your body reacts with a reflex.”

From owl attacks to llama dramas – how to avoid a wedding disaster

Tradition is dead, long live the personalised wedding. But do you really need to carry your pet bunny instead of a bouquet and hashtag the hell out of the big day?

Before we go any further, it is perhaps worth noting that Britain’s divorce rate hovers not far below 50%. I mention this simply to remind you, as the wedding season rears up once more, that not all unions end safely and happily. And, perhaps more pressingly, because this means that in 10 years’ time there is a high chance you won’t give a monkey’s about floral arrangements, seating plans or whether or not you served non-GMO seitan in your vegan canapes.

Still, at this time of year, and with a royal wedding now tantalisingly close, it is worth considering how much weddings have changed in the past few years. These days, most of us get married later – 35 for women and 37 for men – often after years of cohabitation and frequently after parenthood. We have same-sex weddings, friends as celebrants, male bridesmaids, divorced in-laws, second marriages, pies instead of fruitcake, and weddings on submarines and beaches and the London Eye, all of which demands a new kind of wedding etiquette.

Tamal Ray’s recipe for sticky hazelnut and date pretzel buns

This sweet hybrid makes a perfect to-go snack

I’ve become addicted to these buns as a speedy breakfast to have on the go, quietly cursing the snooze function on my alarm when I’m rushing to work. Think of them as pretzels in spirit rather than appearance, as there’s no elegant twirl of dough; it was far too much of a faff to try to get a decent amount of stuffing in and still have a traditional shape. But that quintessential texture is there: a moreishly chewy crumb encased in a glistening crust, burnished with a glaze of caramelised sugars.

Ahead of the subcommittee meeting on Tuesday, Rees-Mogg, who heads the European Research Group of pro-Brexit Conservative MPs, said he was not minded to take a more conciliatory position. “If we were to do so it would completely undermine the heart of why we voted to leave, rendering our almost-reclaimed sovereignty a myth,” he said.

Tesla driver says car was in autopilot when it crashed at 60mph

The driver of a Tesla car that failed to stop at a red light and collided with a firetruck told investigators that the vehicle was operating on “autopilot” mode when it crashed, police said.

A Tesla Model S was traveling at 60mph when it collided with the emergency vehicle in South Jordan, Utah, on Friday, causing minor injuries to both drivers, officials said Monday. The Tesla driver’s claim that the car was using the autopilot technology has raised fresh questions about the electric car company’s semi-autonomous system, which is supposed to assist drivers in navigating the road.

Millennials are making frozen food hot again, but can they stop killing everything else?

Frozen food is the latest industry millennials have been credited with saving. But it’s too late for gum, soap and thongs

Frozen food is super hot right now. According to David Palmer, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, sales volumes have grown for the first time in five years. And millennials are largely responsible for this, spending 9% more per shopping trip for frozen foods last year than other groups, according to Reuters.

So why are millennials, a supposedly foodie generation, buying so many frozen meals? Well, largely because it’s convenient. “The average millennial doesn’t have time to make a full meal with fresh meat and produce, a Euromonitor analyst explained. “More and more they’re seeing these products as viable options.”

Scientists 'transplant memories' between sea snails via injection

Experiment shows some memories are encoded in molecules that form part of an organism’s genetic machinery, researchers say

Science may never know what wistful memories play on the mind of the California sea hare, a foot-long hermaphrodite marine snail, as it munches on algae in the shallow tide pools of the Pacific coast.

But in a new study, researchers claim to have made headway in understanding the simplest kind of memory a mollusc might form, and, with a swift injection, managed to transfer such a memory from one sea snail to another.

Is this a pigeon? The story behind the internet's new favorite meme

A still from The Brave Fighter of Sun Fighbird is being used to mock everyone from men that mansplain to high school TV shows

The Brave Fighter of Sun Fighbird was created to be the Japanese version of Transformers: all androids, intergalactic police forces and merchandise opportunities. First broadcast 25 years ago, it has never been especially popular outside of Japan, but in the past month it has become responsible for one of the most popular images on the internet, posted to Twitter and Instagram thousands of times a day.

The image comes from a scene in the show where an android is trying to convince a police detective that he is human.
