Scott and Olivia, both 39, live with their three children in a large pre-war apartment in Manhattan. They spend weekends and vacations at their second home in the Connecticut countryside. Their children attend a prestigious private school, they employ a part-time personal assistant as well as a nanny-housekeeper and occasionally a personal chef. On aeroplanes they usually travel in business class, though when the children were small the family often flew on private planes.

Fueling this lifestyle is Scott’s inherited wealth, generated by a business his grandfather founded. After earning Ivy League BA and MBA degrees, Scott worked in finance for several years but now focuses on a small technology business he started that supports non-profits, as well as playing an active role on the board of his children’s school. Olivia is also Ivy League educated, although she comes from a working-class family. She has an MA in social work but works for pay only occasionally, spending most of her time taking care of the children and maintaining the household.

Apple blocking ads that follow users around web is 'sabotage', says industry

New iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra will stop ads following Safari users, prompting open letter claiming Apple is destroying internet’s economic model

For the second time in as many years, internet advertisers are facing unprecedented disruption to their business model thanks to a new feature in a forthcoming Apple software update.

iOS 11, the latest version of Apple’s operating system for mobile devices, will hit users’ phones and tablets on Tuesday. It will include a new default feature for the Safari web browser dubbed “intelligent tracking prevention”, which prevents certain websites from tracking users around the net, in effect blocking those annoying ads that follow you everywhere you visit.

‘So many different types of strange’: how Nnedi Okorafor is changing the face of sci-fi
With a Marvel comic under her belt and a novel being adapted for TV by HBO, the Nigerian-American writer is flying the flag for black, female geeks

As the science fiction novelist Nnedi Okorafor takes to the stage at the TEDGlobal conference in Tanzania, she challenges stereotypes before she has said a word. The 43-year-old writer who won the 2016 Hugo award (the Oscars of the sci-fi world) for best novella doesn’t look like much of a geek. Yes, she wears oversized glasses, but Okorafor’s specs are trendy, royal-blue Cat-Eyes, not wiry aviators. And, crucially, she happens to be a black woman.

The Nigerian-American’s success has been applauded as a victory by a community that has long cheered her on from the margins. So when she tweeted on 11 August that she was working on her first project with the comic publisher Marvel, fans were thrilled. (“A Marvel story. Written by a Nigerian woman. Set in Lagos. Superhero’s name: NGOZI. What a time to be alive,” wrote one fan on Twitter) And with a novel, Who Fears Death, to be adapted for TV by HBO (George RR Martin is its executive producer) Okorafor is about to go from the solitary geek reference-point for young African women to everybody’s favourite new sci-fi writer.

Trump in Moscow: what happened at Miss Universe in 2013

The pageant and the president’s attempts to get close to Putin have become a focus of the investigation into Trump’s links to Russian interference in the US election

Sitting in a makeshift studio overlooking the Moscow river on a crisp day in November 2013, Donald Trump pouted, stared down the lens of a television camera and said something he would come to regret.

Asked by an interviewer whether he had a relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin, the brash New York businessman could not resist boasting. “I do have a relationship with him,” Trump said.

Gifs: 30 years of reactions, dancing babies and popcorn

They may have only become part of the everyday internet experience in recent years, but gifs are old school. Here we chart its rise in its 30th year

The humble gif is turning 30. The multi-purpose bitmap image format has established itself as part of internet culture, so much so that people have almost stopped arguing over how it is pronounced (overwhelmingly it is with a hard g, although the inventor of the format says he meant for it to be a soft g).

The gif, or graphics interchange format, was created by programmer Steve Wilhite, who longed for an image format that could be used across different computer platforms. At the time, in 1987, this included the likes of Atari, Apple and IBM. Plus modem speeds were slow and images took a long … time … to … load.

A stadium called Wanda: opening night at Atlético Madrid's new home | Sid Lowe

The Wanda Metropolitano is not the Calderón, the nostalgia lingers, and there is maybe even a sense of loss. But, wow, it’s certainly impressive

There was a glint in Diego Simeone’s eye as he pointed at his chest, mouthed “me” and turned. Right-footed, he struck the ball into the back of the net, not far from the near post. It was Friday evening north east of the capital, the final rehearsal before their grand opening night and one big question had been resolved already. Well, sort of. Some 68,000 seats sat empty, yet to be broken in, and the tap-tap of training was the only sound still, real noise put on hold for 24 hours, but the first goal at Atlético Madrid’s new home had been scored by the captain of their double-winning side and manager of the team moving in.

“The most important thing is the three points,” Simeone said soon after, but that grin underlined that he knew better than anyone that really wasn’t true. “You try to focus on work but it’s not easy: we’re all human,” he admitted the following night. “When you get to the stadium, however much you tell yourself ‘don’t look, don’t feel, don’t watch, don’t gaze around’, you do it.” Everyone did – from the moment they arrived on Saturday morning. This, wrote Atlético-supporting Patricia Cazón, “was one of those days that’s historic just because the sun comes up.” After 50 years at the Vicente Calderón, Atlético had a new stadium. “Your dream home,” Marca called it.

Lewis Hamilton cannot be complacent in F1 title race, says Toto Wolff
• Mercedes executive directors warns driver to remain fully focussed
• ‘There’s lots of time for cheering when we’ve actually won the title’

Lewis Hamilton cannot afford to be complacent in his attempt to win a fourth Formula One world championship despite a 28-point lead, warned Toto Wolff, the Mercedes executive director. Hamilton won the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday after his title rival Sebastian Vettel crashed his Ferrari off the grid and was eliminated from the race.

Hamilton had gone into the race leading Vettel by three points but had expected to drop behind the German at a circuit where Ferrari were hoping to dominate. However Vettel went out after the incident involving his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen on the run to turn one, with all three retiring. The win, Hamilton’s third in a row, has given the British driver a commanding lead with six races to go.

Pape Souaré: ‘I didn’t know when the pain would stop but I didn’t want to give up’
A year on from the car crash that broke his leg and his jaw and could have ended his career, the Crystal Palace defender is on the verge of a remarkable return to the first team

Pape Souaré remembers wincing in disbelief as the car swerved out in front of him and, a split second later, the sickening crunch as his Mercedes G63 collided at speed with the central reservation. But it was only once the dust from the deployed airbags had settled and he slowly became aware of his surroundings, his ears ringing and senses numbed by shock, that the fear truly kicked in.

His right leg was trapped, the driver’s door of his mangled vehicle having folded itself inwards on impact and pinned him to his seat. Another commuter on the M4, who had witnessed the crash that sunny afternoon a little over a year ago, had pulled over and was urging the injured footballer, as calmly as he could, to focus. “He kept saying my name, which surprised me. I didn’t understand how he knew my name,” recalls Souaré. “He was telling me: ‘Stay with me, stay with me.’ I was really listening to him, waiting and waiting, and I couldn’t move or do anything.

The worst may be yet to come for the Cowboys after a day to forget in Denver

The Cowboys caught a glimpse of life without running back Ezekiel Elliott and it was wasn’t pretty, while Tom Brady reverted to form after a Week 1 aberration

Last year the Dallas Cowboys were the story of the NFL with a star rookie running back rumbling behind a dominant offensive line, winning games because their rookie quarterback never seemed rattled by any situation. They were so good with Ezekiel Elliott running the ball and Dak Prescott throwing it that franchise quarterback Tony Romo was chased into an early retirement.

The future belonged to Elliott and Prescott.

Woe of Cologne continues amid latest video replay stink | Andy Brassell

A 5-0 thrashing at Dortmund could have been worse, even with a dubious VAR decision, and there are already fears of a situation spinning out of control

Jörg Schmadtke rushed out to the Sky truck in the TV compound to pore over every possible angle – and to check his eyes weren’t deceiving him. By that point, the Köln sporting director had already been on the Signal Iduna Park pitch, shoulder to shoulder with the coach, Peter Stöger, protesting to the referee, Patrick Ittrich, over the award by VAR of Borussia Dortmund’s second goal.

Before any more fingers start pointing at Effzee about an anarchic end to a chaotic week, we should add that this was a reasonable moment for both men to approach Ittrich. Sokratis Papastathopoulos’s belatedly given strike, which made it 2-0, was the last act of the first half before the players made their way off and Köln’s officials made the most of the moment to get their point across.

Meet Malcom, the other Brazilian forward who is setting Ligue 1 alight

He’s young; he’s from São Paulo; he plays on the wing; he keeps scoring goals; his team are unbeaten in Ligue 1 this season; but, unlike Neymar, he only cost €5m

By Adam White and Eric Devin for Get French Football News

Malcom was on the scoresheet for the third time in four matches on Friday evening as Bordeaux continued their rise up the table with a 1-0 win at Toulouse. The 20-year-old winger has been a revelation this season. Bordeaux endured a frustrating start to the campaign – they were knocked out of the Europa League by Hungarian side Videoton before they had kicked a ball in Ligue 1 – but Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side have played some inspired football in recent months and remain one of just two unbeaten sides remaining in the league (along with Paris Saint-Germain, who have won all six of their matches so far). Bordeaux now sit in fourth, just one point below third-placed Saint-Étienne.

They owe a lot to Malcom, whose driven goal on Friday broke open a match that looked as if it would finish goalless. Impressive though it was, his winner against Toulouse hardly ranks among the best of Malcom’s career. It wasn’t even his best this season – see his jaw-dropping equaliser against Lyon – but it showed all of the abilities that have made him a bona fide matchwinner: pace, vision, intelligence of movement and finishing.

Lewis Hamilton is now the favourite and Vettel only has himself to blame | Giles Richards
Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix feels like the moment the F1 title pendulum swung decisively in favour of the Mercedes man after Sebastian Vettel’s costly blunder at Marina Bay

The win in Singapore might have proved to be the miracle at Marina Bay Lewis Hamilton had been hoping for but, putting aside divine intervention, the British driver comprehensively earned his victory. The crash off the grid took out his rivals but he still had to execute a perfect race to take the flag. He was on it immediately. Just moments later, aware that Sebastian Vettel’s car was leaking fluid, he went offline out of turn three to avoid it – wisely as it was there the stricken Vettel span and crashed.

Premiership, Pro14, international and Premier 15s rugby union talking points

Gloucester must learn less is more, Denny Solomona presses his England case and the tussle to wear the No13 jersey in the autumn internationals hots up

When Gloucester’s head coach, Johan Ackermann, was asked if his honeymoon was over after a second successive defeat, he replied that it had never started. The club remain the Premiership’s enigma, capable of defeating the champions one week and then folding against a team looking for their first win the next. Leicester were expected to start with fury after meekly succumbing to Northampton the week before but Gloucester were unprepared for the onslaught, conceding an early sucker try on their way to a 21-point deficit after 20 minutes. They played with intent and made a number of line breaks, but moves broke down because of a lack of familiarity, overambition and poor handling as a heavy penalty count against them prompted attacks from deep. The ingredients are there but over the years they have been thrown together to serve up an unappetising mix. Less will be more for Ackermann. Paul Rees

Genoa's Pietro Pellegri sets Serie A record, sparking tears and transfer talk | Paolo Bandini

The 16-year-old, who has similar qualities to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, lived up to the hype with two goals against Lazio to become the league’s youngest scorer

Marco Pellegri decided to go on living. Genoa’s team administrator had warned us that he might not, telling reporters: “The day [my son] Pietro steps out at Marassi wearing a Genoa shirt I can go ahead and die, because it will mean that I have seen everything.”

Nope, not even close. Pietro Pellegri would make his home debut in April, a three-minute cameo at the end of a defeat to Chievo. It was a beautiful moment: father and son stood side by side on the touchline at Marassi as the board went up announcing the latter’s introduction from the bench.

Hughie Fury: ‘I’ve had no teenage life, no drinking or friends. I’ve sacrificed everything’
Tyson Fury’s cousin left school at 11 and, with his father in and out of prison, dedicated his life to boxing – next Saturday he could become a world heavyweight champion

On a bleak afternoon in Windermere, where Hughie Fury is preparing for the WBO world heavyweight title fight against Joseph Parker this Saturday, the past rolls in like a heavy bank of cloud bringing yet more rain to the Lake District. Fury remembers a childhood of little education, a family of Travellers tested by his father being in and out of prison, and a life marked by sacrifice.

He talks simply, without the surreal or distasteful flourishes of his notorious cousin. Tyson Fury was the undisputed world heavyweight champion for just under a year before, last October, relinquishing all his belts amid controversy, depression and associated mental health issues. Hughie is less troubled than Tyson but he lacks the charisma of Anthony Joshua, his far more famous British contemporary who holds the IBF and WBA titles and dominates the popular imagination as the only heavyweight in the world who matters.

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

Bournemouth get some return from £15m Ibe, Chelsea lack plan B without Diego Costa, Burnley are not long-ball side and Jamaal Lascelles has grown up fast

Manchester City and Manchester United have goal differences of +14 after five matches. That is more than Celtic in the Scottish Premier League, a division routinely mocked for being uncompetitive. If the Manchester clubs carry on winning by the margins they have enjoyed so far, then they will surpass the Premier League’s record goal difference (+71 racked up by Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea in 2009-10), the best ever mustered by Celtic (+80), the New Saints in Wales (+75) and the preposterous Ligue 1 record set by Paris Saint-Germain two years ago (+83). Of course that is a big ‘if’ because there is a small clutch of teams who could frustrate or even beat them. But United and, in particular, City are likely to ridicule many opponents this season. City beat United to the 2012 title on goal difference (+64 against +56); for José Mourinho there would surely be no sweeter way to prevail over Pep Guardiola this season. Paul Doyle

Damp squib in Philadelphia exposes distance of American rugby dream

Only just over 6,000 turned up to watch Saracens and Newcastle to illustrate that the Premiership’s American adventure still has a long way to go

The Premiership Rugby chief executive, Mark McCafferty, put a brave face on a poor crowd for Newcastle v Saracens in Philadelphia, saying: “Obviously we know the size of the task, and it’s a big one.”

The Talen Energy Stadium – actually in Chester, down the Delaware from Philly – contained only 6,271 fans, 12,000 short of its modest Major League Soccer capacity. McCafferty said the challenge of filling such a ground, quite likely, although not certainly, to be the Talen, for the three years left of the American Series deal, was “exciting, in a way”.

Judge Adalaide Byrd’s bizarre call gifts Álvarez another shot at Golovkin
Few inside the T-Mobile arena would have argued with a split decision overall but the margin of the Las Vegas judge’s ruling in favour of the Mexican added unwarranted controversy to an epic battle


Sometimes, professional boxing can leave onlookers and participants drained, from excitement or outrage. Those twin emotions competed with each other yet again here on Saturday night when Adalaide Byrd, a respected official with a long history of sound judgment, came to the daft conclusion that Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez had won all but two rounds of his career-defining and quite excellent fight against Gennady Golovkin.

The ‘fix’ is in but is it right that Russia will compete in the Winter Olympics? | Sean Ingle
Despite calls from UK and US anti-doping bodies for shamed nation to be banned from February’s games, IOC and Wada inaction could let them off the hook

‘It wouldn’t surprise me if the fix is already in,” warned Travis Tygart, the venerable head of the US Anti-Doping Agency, when I asked him on Thursday whether Russia will compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics. It was not so much pessimism as prophecy. Twenty-four hours later Alexander Zhukov, the head of the Russian Olympic Committee, confidently predicted at the 131st IOC summit in Lima: “It will be a Russian team with the Russian anthem and Russian flag” in Pyeongchang.

Of course it will be. No one who follows the arcane politics of the International Olympic Committee believes otherwise. The fix is indeed in, just as it was before the Rio Olympics, when the IOC niftily side-stepped massive evidence of state-sponsored doping and allowed hundreds of Russians to compete, and again in what is now claimed to have been corrupted bidding processes for the Rio and Tokyo Games, in 2009 and 2013, when votes were allegedly traded for cash.

FA kickstarts futsal revolution in bid to create England players of the future | Jamie Fahey
Thousands of youngsters will be able to develop their talent indoors this winter playing the game that honed the skills of Neymar and Lionel Messi

It is mid-September but the clock is already ticking on the countdown to the inevitable rainy season that routinely plays havoc with the grassroots youth football calendar around the country. So it was timely for the FA to announce on Monday that it is trying to dismantle the barriers blocking access to school halls to allow young footballers to seek refuge from the cold and try the game that formed a legion of footballing superstars: futsal.

Grants from the Football Foundation totalling £300,000 will be made available for schools, colleges and youth football leagues. The aim is to create 200 futsal hubs, exposing at least 12,000 more children to the fast-paced five-a-side game that Neymar, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and the Spanish rondo brigade credit with honing their impeccable skills as youngsters.

Boris Johnson’s £350m claim is devious and bogus. Here’s why | John Lichfield
The foreign secretary must find it necessary to distort statistics because the truth does not serve his case

How would Trump handle a terror attack? | Aziz Huq

His responses to Syria, North Korea and Hurricanes Harvey and Irma offer a glimpse into how the White House would deal with a domestic attack

On a sunny day, on a crowded urban street, a heavy van leaps suddenly onto the sideway. It accelerates. It kills and injures dozens. Or an improvised bomb explodes on public transport, injuring many. A perpetrator, apprehended quickly due to CCTV footage, professes allegiance to Isis but claims to have acted alone.

A version of this awful scene was replayed in Barcelona and just days ago in London – but what if it were to happen in the US? How would its government respond?

We need to make democracy work in the fight to save the planet | AC Grayling

For centuries, humans have championed the democratic political system. But can it facilitate the radical change needed to stop the potentially annihilating effects of climate change?

Although individual action to protect the environment – consuming less, recycling more, reducing one’s carbon footprint – might be a contribution if enough people did it, the battle to minimise human-induced climate change has to be a worldwide endeavour among cooperating states. The outcome of the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference was one of the most optimistic and encouraging steps hitherto achieved in that battle – that is, until Donald Trump said he intended to withdraw the US, the biggest climate polluter in history, from the agreement. The Paris agreement and President Trump’s decision illustrate the two ends of the spectrum of effort and concern. Our planet cannot be protected from a warming atmosphere – with melting ice caps, rising sea levels, droughts, floods, famines and migrations of desperate populations – without vigorous joint effort by the world’s states.

Yes, I’m the child of an MP. That’s no reason to give me abuse | Hanna Flint
The Tory MP Bob Stewart says his son has been singled out by a teacher because of his father’s views. No child should be judged in this way

When I was 14, one of my teachers held me back after class to ask me something. It wasn’t about my contribution to the lesson or my work: it was to ask how my mother was going to vote on Britain’s participation in the Iraq war.

If you didn’t guess from my surname, I’m the daughter of Caroline Flint, the Labour MP for Don Valley, who at the time had represented the constituency for six years. I remember sitting there, confused. Does this guy really think my mum discusses her political moves with a 14-year-old who is more interested in romcoms and her next basketball game than the inner workings of Her Majesty’s government? Apparently so.

Canada’s Nafta talks with the US are a model for Brexit. Theresa May, take note | Colin Horgan
The prime minister’s visit to Ottawa will give her an opportunity to learn how Canada negotiates with a more powerful neighbour. Let’s hope she is listening

When Theresa May visits Ottawa on Monday, she might have more to learn from Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau than what socks to wear to the United Nations, or how to win a majority. Now that the UK has entered into the difficult early stages of negotiating its way out of the European Union, May and her government might want to take note while in North America of how another trade relationship works and how Canada, specifically, handles its role within it.

Donald Trump’s election put the spotlight on the North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta), a deal between the US, Canada and Mexico that covers everything from avocados to lumber to Ski-Doos. Trump has made it clear that he believes Nafta to be “the worst trade deal ever signed”. The goal, as far as Trump is concerned? Regain control. As with similar promises from Brexiters, the impossibilities of such economic independence were totally ignored in favour of rhetoric. The unprecedented trade talks requested by both Trump and the Brexiters have arrived, and the way by which both Canada and the UK have approached negotiations is a study in contrasts – one that could be instructive for May.

China’s mood on North Korea is toughening – despite Trump’s bluster | Tania Branigan
The US president’s incoherent rhetoric undermines many long-held certainties. Yet calls are growing in Beijing for stronger action against Pyongyang

Even a man as self-deluding and indifferent to truth as Donald Trump is unable to claim that his threats have cowed North Korea. Five weeks ago, he warned of “fire and fury”. Since then, Pyongyang has launched three missiles – two over Japan – and tested another nuclear bomb. Trump continues to wave his stick, talking on Friday of “effective and overwhelming” options, despite widespread warnings of the immense risk that they would bring catastrophe, not least for US allies and service people.

Allies fear he is genuinely willing to take military action. Most probably, he believes he will not need to do so: if only he keeps shouting, the North Koreans will fall into line eventually.

Don’t lock up young offenders – send them to top boarding schools instead | Afua Hirsch

Placing at-risk children in custody doesn’t work. They need the same educational support as their richer peers

Not long ago, driving through a Warwickshire town looking for a residential school, of a kind, I drove past a group of pupils walking in a crocodile. The uniforms caught my attention – the girls’ skirts looked unusually long, flapping around the ankles, an eccentricity denoting privilege. The boys were dressed in suits, and they were accompanied by a master in long robes.

Enough tiptoeing around. Let’s make this clear: coal kills people | Tim Hollo

Burning more coal, knowing what we know, is a deliberate act of arson. We must urgently come to grips with this fact and reconnect with nature and our communities

Coal kills people. This isn’t even slightly scientifically controversial.
From the mines to the trains to the climate disruption; from black lung to asthma, heat stress to hunger, fires to floods: coal is killing people in Australia and around the world right now.

Yet we are once again having what passes for political debate about extending the life of coal-fired power stations and, extraordinarily, building new ones. The conversation is completely disconnected from the fact that two thirds of Bangladesh was reported to be under water, record-breaking hurricanes were battering the US, and wildfires were roaring in both the northern and southern hemispheres at the same time.

I’ve always been an Arab. It was only when I moved to the US I realised I was ‘brown’

It has been a bumper year for Islamophobia in the US. At times, it feels as if all I can do is keep my head down and ride out the storm

On 26 May, a white supremacist stabbed two people to death in my adopted hometown of Portland, Oregon. Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche confronted their killer when they saw him shouting Islamophobic slurs at a pair of teenage girls on a city train. In response, he slashed their throats and ran.

The man who committed this crime did so because he felt entitled to harass Muslims. And he knew at least one of the young women sitting in front of him was Muslim, not because he had any meaningful understanding of her religion, but because he saw the garment covering her hair.

The Guardian view on Germany’s election: slow and steady | Editorial
Angela Merkel is fighting a campaign almost entirely on domestic issues, but the results are vital to the rest of Europe

Germans head to the ballot box next Sunday. If polls are anything to go by (in Germany they’re deemed reliable), Angela Merkel is heading comfortably for a fourth term in office. The economy is doing well, confidence is high, and Mrs Merkel’s main opponent, the Social Democrat Martin Schulz, has failed to land any damaging blows on her.

So the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU) is steady in the polls at 37%, and the SPD (Social Democrats) can only muster 20%. Most of the suspense centres on what kind of coalition might emerge under Mrs Merkel this time. The CDU and the SPD have been in coalition since 2013; will that be renewed? Or will a different pattern emerge, perhaps one excluding the SPD but combining the CDU with the liberal, business-friendly Free Democrats (FDP), 9.5% in the latest polls, and the Greens, currently at 7.5%? Few now expect the kind of political upheaval which might produce a coalition between the SPD, the Greens, and the former communists of Die Linke.

Media should reflect all society, not just a typically male ruling class

Research shows number of female bylines on British daily front pages has increased by just three percentage points in five years

A hunch five years ago that the front pages of British newspapers were dominated by men prompted research that proved the hunch right: daily newspapers were full of male writers and voices.

Since then much has changed, not least the appointment of the UK’s second female prime minister, the first woman to run for the highest office in the US and, closer to home, the appointment of the first female editor-in-chief of the Guardian.

Vladimir Putin watches display of Russian firepower near EU border

Russian president observes as Zapad military exercise moves into counterattack stage

A large-scale Russian military exercise that has spooked western countries has entered its final phase, with helicopters, fighter jets, missiles and tanks employed at a firing range close to Russia’s border with the EU.

Vladimir Putin was among those watching the 45-minute display of firepower on a cold and rainy Monday afternoon at the Luga firing range, about 70 miles (113km) from the border with EU member state Estonia. The Russian president, joined by the defence minister, Sergei Shoigu, and a number of army generals, watched through binoculars from a viewing platform.

Hurricane Maria strengthened to a category 3 storm as it headed toward the Caribbean, where it was forecast to hit the Leeward Islands on Monday night.

Maria was “rapidly” intensifying into a major hurricane, the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. The storm’s center was about 60 miles (95km) east of Martinique, with maximum sustained winds of 120mph (195kph).

Women of childbearing age around world suffering toxic levels of mercury

Study finds excessive levels of the metal, which can seriously harm unborn children, in women from Alaska to Indonesia, due to gold mining, industrial pollution and fish-rich diets

Women of childbearing age from around the world have been found to have high levels of mercury, a potent neurotoxin which can seriously harm unborn children.

The new study, the largest to date, covered 25 of the countries with the highest risk and found excessive levels of the toxic metal in women from Alaska to Chile and Indonesia to Kenya. Women in the Pacific islands were the most pervasively contaminated. This results from their reliance on eating fish, which concentrate the mercury pollution found across the world’s oceans and much of which originates from coal burning.

Battlefield bounty hunters: the detectorists of eastern Europe

Enthusiasts fuelled by vodka and nationalism are on the hunt for military memorabilia. Jack Losh joins a group of Poles, and meets the men trying to stop them

In the quiet of the forest, Aleksander holds a rusted pistol and turns it over. Others gather round to admire the handgun, each feeling its weight before shooting an imaginary bullet into the trees. More detritus of war is placed on a picnic table – a swastika-adorned badge, shards of shrapnel, a Soviet medal inscribed “Proletarians of all countries, unite!” The remnants of fallen regimes.

The men are among the thousands of detectorists across eastern Europe hunting for relics of the Red Army, the Third Reich and Imperial Russia. Beneath ploughed field and remote woodland is buried treasure from a turbulent, vanishing past. Even today, the war dead lie in these lands. Sometimes bodies are found.

What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton review – no twinge of remorse

The presidential candidate blames everyone but herself for her shock defeat by Trump in this hubristic memoir

In common with everyone who is likely to read this review, I grieved when Hillary Clinton lost the election last November. Now there is an extra reason for regret: with time on her hands, the woman who was so qualified to be an able, diligent, clear-headed president has hastily written – or presided over the writing of – an unreflective book that in its combination of number-crunching wonkery and strenuously pious uplift reveals more than she might have intended about why she lost. Her bewilderment is easy to understand, but couldn’t she have waited before monetising failure and relaunching her brand with a nationwide book tour?

Bill Clinton’s mantra was “I feel your pain”, a phrase he uttered not at the site of a flood or a quake but in a Manhattan nightclub, where he was heckled by an Aids activist. Hillary’s equivalent is not an offer of empathy but a demand for sympathy: she wants us to feel her pain – the numbing shock of election night, the anguish of having to face a hostile crowd at Trump’s inauguration and listen to him rant about social carnage in a speech that George W Bush described as “some weird shit”.

The pursuit of loneliness: how I chose a life of solitude

Hayley Campbell quit her job and moved into an empty flat. Here she explains the tough but peculiar pleasures of seclusion

Since the late 1980s, scientists have been tracking a whale who sings at a sonic frequency higher than any other whale of its species: at 52 hertz, just above the lowest note on a tuba. It sings songs no one answers. Internet societies have been following it for years like sad Ahabs, transposing their own feelings on to it, believing they understand it. Alone in their bedrooms they hunt this whale they believe to be lonely just like them. Talk to scientists and they will say other whales can probably hear it, maybe it’s deaf, maybe the whale’s song is the result of a genetic mutation. But it doesn’t matter: the lonely people have taken this whale as their totem. I’ve followed it for years.

In 2015, I tried psychodynamic therapy for what my therapist called “a loss thing”. Months prior, my grandparents collapsed on their bedroom floor and died in hospital, days apart, from the same case of pneumonia. The upshot was that birthdays make me miserable and trailing their twin coffins into the crematorium on my 29th birthday didn’t feel wildly out of sync with my mood. What followed this – one of the rawest experiences of my life but also one of the best attended birthday parties – was pulling the plug on a relationship that had been comatose for years, divvying up not only books but friends, plus the death of a Labrador I got when I was 12. It felt like the things that kept me tied to my youth – a blind dog, the unchanging 1970s blue bathroom in my grandparents’ house, nearly all of my 20s – were disconnecting their carabiners and pushing me out into space. A loss thing.

Deportation and child removal threats - just for living legally in the UK

A Japanese woman living in London with her Polish husband tells how a two-year battle with the Home Office has turned her life upside down

A Japanese woman living in London with her Polish husband has been threatened with deportation, had her child benefit stopped and driving licence revoked even though she is lawfully in the country under EU law, it has emerged.

In a two-year ordeal, photographer Haruko Tomioka, was also threatened with separation from her eight-year-old son.

'Proud to be Mexican': Meet the baby whose huge image gazes over the border

The art installation emerged last week near Tecate, highlighting controversy over Trump’s proposed wall – but Kikito’s family would rather stay in Mexico

The toddler seems to grip the top of the steel fence as he peers into America, his attention focused on something north of the border.

The expression is playful but his scale – 65ft – dwarfs the fence, making it look puny and eminently climbable.

How many more warrior women are missing from the history books? | Natalie Haynes
The recent discovery of female bones in a Viking warrior grave is yet another indication that we’ve only scratched the surface of female history

Warrior women have fascinated us for millennia. In ancient Greece, Amazons were the second most popular characters to feature in vase paintings. Only the exploits of Hercules (one of which involved Hippolyta, an Amazon queen) appeared on more pieces of pottery. In the images that survive, Amazons are always shown racing towards danger, never away from it.

How fashion's new obsession with office dressing made me feel like an 80s throwback

While fashion designers are taking inspiration from a fantasy executive boardroom, the reality of wearing a power suit in real life feels quite weird

• Read more from the autumn/winter 2017 edition of The Fashion, our biannual fashion supplement

It’s a normal Tuesday morning in the office and people are staring at me. They look me up and down as I fill my water bottle. They give me side eye in the lift. This is not an anxiety dream. This is real life. My appearance is inspiring unspoken questions in my colleagues. Namely: what on earth is she wearing? And why?

What I am wearing is an Isabel Marant suit. It is woollen, grey and double breasted, with burgundy stripes and softly padded shoulders. In the Guardian’s proudly dressed-down environment, where jeans and T-shirts are practically compulsory, I am an aberration.

The yoga industry is booming – but does it make you a better person?
?It’s now arguably more of a lifestyle than a form of exercise in the west?. ?And rather than becoming more enlightened and compassionate, I felt I was just pouring energy into ?myself

It was 2010 and the newspaper I worked for in Sydney commissioned me to interview yoga entrepreneur Bikram Choudhury.

He was in town to open the first of a chain of hot yoga studios. Choudhury’s brand of yoga – which he had trademarked and franchised – involved 26 poses in a humid, heated room with mirrors and carpets. When I visited the studio and caught the stench and the robotic instructions from a mic’d-up teacher, I thought: “Yeah, this won’t take off.”

Tied up in nots: same-sex marriage divides last bastion of Australian opposition

Maranoa is an outback electorate pollsters bill as the most opposed to marriage equality but even here a yes or no question is not quite that simple

“I’m 50-50, sitting on the fence – on barbed wire, you might say.”

The undecided man in his 70s, poring over betting slips with his wife at the local club in the Queensland town of Warwick, says he is not much bothered by same-sex marriage, since it doesn’t affect him.

Juggalos march on Washington: ‘We’re a family not a gang'

Fans of the band Insane Clown Posse protested the FBI’s gang designation, as nearby a pro-Trump rally drew a smaller than expected crowd

In 1864, Abraham Lincoln was being besieged by a clown.

Dan Rice, the most famous clown of the time – he was also an animal trainer and a strong man – was running for state senate in Pennsylvania. He had based his campaign on attacking Lincoln over his handling of the civil war.

Scotland’s Sphinx snow patch is in its throes – in pictures

The Sphinx is the closest Britain comes to having a glacier. It has disappeared just six times in the last 300 years, but this year it is almost gone. Murdo MacLeod joins snow expert Iain Cameron to study the state of Scotland’s permanent snow

“It’s a very sorry sight,” says Iain Cameron. It is late August and we are standing in front of Scotland’s very own Sphinx. It never had claws, paws, nor a mysterious countenance, but if it once had they would have melted away, just as the rest is about to do. “Grim,” says Cameron with gravel in his tone. “It’s pretty much in its death throes.”

Brazil investigates alleged slaughter of Amazonian tribespeople by gold miners

Eight to 10 members of a remote indigenous group were allegedly killed by men working for illegal prospectors in Javari Valley

Brazilian authorities are investigating reports of a massacre of up to 10 people from an isolated tribe in the Amazon by illegal gold miners.

The killings, alleged to have taken place in Javari Valley, are claimed to have been carried out by men working for gold prospectors who dredge illegally in the region’s rivers.

'They lied': Bolivia's untouchable Amazon lands at risk once more | Myles McCormick

Locals blame coca interests for the state’s broken promise on protecting Tipnis national park, biodiversity hotspot and home to thousands of indigenous people

When Ovidio Teco’s Amazon homeland was declared “untouchable” by the Bolivian government in 2011, his war had been won.

The concerns of people like him had been listened to: their beautiful and ancient land would not be carved in two by a 190-mile highway.

Six farmers shot dead over land rights battle in Peru

Six farmers have been shot dead by a criminal gang who wanted to seize their farms to muscle in on the lucrative palm oil trade, according to indigenous Amazon leaders in Peru.

Local leaders in the central Amazon region of Ucayali say the victims were targeted last Friday because they had refused to give up their land.

'We'd rather die than lose': villagers in Indonesia fight for a land rights revolution

A small community on the island of Sumatra is at the heart of a battle for traditional territories that could finally resolve the muddled and exploitative system of laws governing land ownership in Indonesia

It is cold and late on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Huddled around a map, a group of elders are planning their battle strategy. In a milestone victory last year, they were promised rights to the land their village has controlled for generations, but today they have had bad news. The local inspector wants to slice off a piece of the forest where they harvest benzoin – a substance like frankincense – and give it to a large pulp company. They see this as a betrayal.

The elders debate in a mix of languages – Batak and bahasa Indonesia – while sipping tea and planning how they will resume the fight the next day. For years now, almost every day has involved this kind of planning.

Tributes paid to 'silent hero' wildlife conservationist killed in Tanzania

Government officials and fellow conservationists paid tribute to Wayne Lotter at a special memorial yesterday

Hundreds of people gathered at Baobab Village in Dar es Salaam to pay tribute to Wayne Lotter on Tuesday evening, as tributes continued to come in from around the world.

Lotter, 51, was shot and killed last week while travelling in a taxi from the airport to his hotel on Dar es Salaam’s Msasani Peninsula. Lotter, who co-founded PAMS Foundation, a conservation nonprofit, was responsible for supporting anti-poaching efforts that had led to the arrests of more than 2000 ivory poachers and traffickers, and had taken down several key poaching syndicates in the country. He had received numerous death threats since starting the organization in 2009.

Three wildlife rangers killed in attack by violent militia in DRC

Three wildlife rangers at DRC’s Virunga national park were killed this week in an ambush by Mai Mai rebels, bringing this year’s fatalities to eight

Three rangers have been killed and another is missing after an attack by violent militia in Virunga national park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, bringing the number of fatalities in the park this year to eight.

The park rangers, Charles Paluku Syaira, Jonas Paluku Malyani and Pacifique Musubao Fikirini were murdered on the morning of Monday 14 August during a routine patrol around the park, which is home to critically endangered mountain gorilla.

Three more rangers killed in a deadly month around the world for wildlife defenders

Wildlife protection has become an increasingly dangerous business as rangers face armed gunmen and poachers

Three rangers have been killed in separate countries in a deadly month for wildlife defenders.

A ranger at Serra da Capivara national park, in Brazil’s north-eastern Piaui region, was killed by hunters on 18 August. Edilson Aparecido dos Santos and two other colleagues were patrolling the park when they were ambushed by a group of four armed men who are believed to have been hunting in the park illegally. Dos Santos was killed in the shootout that followed, while the other two rangers were injured.

Tanzanian police believe wildlife activist may have been tracked by his killer

A police insider has told the Guardian that the killers of Wayne Lotter may have been following him

Police believe Wayne Lotter’s killer may have followed and targeted the conservationist when he was shot on Wednesday, according to inside sources.

Lotter was stopped and then fatally shot while travelling by taxi from Dar es Salaam airport to a hotel. He had been working in Tanzania for many years, exposing and jailing wildlife poachers and traffickers, and he had received a number of death threats. Tanzania’s director for criminal investigation, Robert Boaz, said a murder investigation was underway.

Amnesty condemns 'campaign of harassment' against Nicaragua canal critics

The interoceanic canal and its ‘murky legal framework’ was also criticized by Bianca Jagger, who called the canal ‘an insane project’

Nicaragua’s former revolutionary leaders have led a campaign of harassment and persecution against communities opposing the construction of a controversial canal that threatens the homes and livelihoods of tens of thousands of people, according to Amnesty International.

Plans to construct a $50bn shipping canal 175 miles long and 500 yards wide have provoked a mix of anger, fear and defiance not witnessed since the civil war between the Sandinista government and US-backed Contra rebels ended in 1988.

How we made West Side Story

‘I wanted to be the first guy to use a four-letter word in a musical – but the line ended up as “krup you” instead’

I was at a party with Arthur Laurents who was about to write a musical with Leonard Bernstein based on Romeo and Juliet. I asked who was doing the lyrics and he said: “Gosh, we’ve been thinking about that. We don’t have anybody.” Lenny wanted Comden and Green (Singin’ in the Rain) but they were in Hollywood under a contract. Arthur asked if I’d play for Lenny.

'I did the best I could': Chelsea Manning hits back at traitor accusations

Manning tells crowd she took a risk to ‘change the tone of the conversation’ but that, if anything, matters have become worse

Chelsea Manning told a conference on Sunday that she is not an “American traitor”, as her critics have claimed, and that she did what she thought was the right thing to do.

“I believe I did the best I could in my circumstances to make an ethical decision,” she told the crowd when asked by the moderator if she was a traitor.

Ai Weiwei: ‘Without the prison, the beatings, what would I be?'

His battles with the Chinese state made him an artist. Now a rootless exile who rarely leaves his studio in Berlin, he explains why his new documentary about the global plight of migrants will haunt him for the rest of his life

Human Flow, the debut feature from the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, is a bold documentary about the refugee crisis. The film bounds from the cardboard cities of Europe to the burning oilfields of Mosul and from the unmarked graves of Turkey to the Texas-Mexico border. It plays out across 23 different countries. It contains a cast of thousands. In 2010, the artist packed Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall with 100m hand-painted porcelain sunflower seeds that broke up underfoot and filled the air with dust. Here, he crams an entire global tragedy into 140 fraught minutes.

If there’s a unifying thread in all this teeming human traffic, it’s the shambling figure of Ai himself. There he is, a burly, beetle-browed man of 60, handing out hot tea on the beaches at Lesbos, comforting a traumatised woman inside a makeshift studio and cooking kebabs on a barbecue at a dusty refugee camp. He says that he never wanted to appear on-screen as a tourist. His mission was always to find common ground. “I am a refugee, every bit,” he says. “Those people are me. That’s my identity.”

Steve Buscemi: ‘In some ways I feel I haven’t fulfilled my true potential'

From firefighter and bar fly to Hollywood superstar, Steve Buscemi has populated his films with lovable oddballs and cold-blooded killers. But, as Aaron Hicklin finds, it’s all been driven by his need to fit in

Like Tommy, the aimless barfly he plays in Trees Lounge, the melancholic 1996 indie film he also wrote and directed, Steve Buscemi found himself in a spiral of hopelessness after leaving school, jumping from one part-time job to another: cinema usher, ice-cream seller, petrol station attendant. There were many long nights in bars. “I really had difficulty there [on Long Island] in my last couple of years because I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing,” he says. “I felt my life was going nowhere.” His father had pushed all four of his sons to take a civil service exam, in Buscemi’s case as an avenue to a career with the fire service, where he would work for four years.

Although he knew he wanted to be an actor, he had only a dim notion of how to realise his dream. It was also his father who suggested he apply for drama school, ostensibly as an interlude until the fire department came calling. At his interview for the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York, Buscemi was asked why he wanted to be an actor. He casually parroted his dad’s well-meaning advice that acting classes would stand him in good stead for whatever path he chose in life. “I remember her telling me: ‘Well, we really want people who want to be actors,’” he recalls. “In that moment, I felt I really blew it.” He didn’t, as it happens, but it taught him not to be so cavalier about the thing he was most passionate about.

Lemn Sissay: ‘For the first time, I’m enjoying my life. I feel I have a purpose’

Life begins at 50 for the acclaimed poet, who’s overcome a traumatic childhood in care. Next up: more theatre and television projects

When I arrive at Benares, the Indian restaurant on Berkeley Square in London, Lemn Sissay has got there first and is on the way back outside for a smoke. I’ve never met Sissay, but he has the true poet’s gift for immediately making you feel like an old mate. We stand outside the Bentley showroom next to the restaurant – this isn’t any old curry house – and he explains with his broad grin why he chose to come here this particular day: “When you said the date for lunch, I immediately thought it had to be an Indian place!” he says, “Seventy years this morning since independence and partition – we couldn’t let that go by, could we?”

Sissay’s own complicated heritage is Ethiopian, by way of foster and care homes outside Wigan, in streets where the only other outsiders were Indian or Pakistani. “Those Lancashire villages were incredibly hostile to the Indian community who had come in originally to work the mills at night because no one else would,” he says. “When the mills closed they opened shops that stayed open late and got worse stick for that. But the food they have brought to our country has changed our idea of food forever.”

Akram Khan: ‘My father hated my waitering – how I’d prance around’

The dancer and choreographer on rehearsing in the kitchen, snacking in the studio and getting his head around broccoli

When five or six months old I was taken to Bangladesh by my father for four months or so to be presented to his family, while my mother stayed in Wimbledon, quite traumatised. I’m not sure how I was fed. When I went back to Bangladesh as a boy, I remember being unable to cope with the powdered milk there. Anything mixed with that milk is contaminated for me.

My mother says my strongest curiosity as a little boy was to taste things and this caused great problems – I’d clean stones of mud with my tongue and I’d eat worms. But my earliest actual memory is of sitting in a pram, sticking my tongue out to catch snowflakes and being very excited by their temperature and tastelessness.

Mark Strong: ‘I’ve seen people I know become very famous. It’s nothing I would recommend’

The Kingsman actor on not playing the fame game, the hit-and-run joy of character acting and his punk-rock past

Mark Strong is one of the UK’s most successful cinema character actors, with almost 60 film credits in 25 years, including Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Zero Dark Thirty and the Kingsman series. On stage, he won the 2015 Olivier award for best actor for his role in A View from the Bridge. An only child, Strong was born in London and brought up by his Austrian mother, who worked as an au pair. His Italian father left when he was baby. He lives in north London with his wife, the producer Liza Marshall, and two sons.

You studied constitutional law at Munich University. You could now be an anonymous functionary in the German legal system. What made you want to become an actor?
I had fantasies of being a European lawyer, but I quickly realised I probably just had fantasies of wearing a raincoat and carrying a briefcase and driving a BMW. I thought that would be cool. But the study of law is so dry, especially constitutional law in German. I came across a class in Munich – only Germans could have a course called Theaterwissenschaft, which means theatre science – and it was way more interesting than what was going on in the lecture halls. I just managed to get in on that somehow, and that opened up the whole world of theatre, acting, performance.

The day Van Morrison remembered me – and impressed my girlfriend

A chance encounter in a restaurant in Bath with Van the Man leads to a bizarre series of events for one fan, recalls Jon Bewley

In 1994 I was travelling around the UK visiting various arts festivals with an eye to setting up a new arts organisation, the future Locus+. At the Bath Festival, I was travelling alone. Not knowing the city, I chanced upon a small, out-of-the-way restaurant and during the meal I noticed to my great surprise that Van Morrison was eating there, too, with a companion.

I was, and still am, an enormous fan of Van Morrison and had a momentary crisis of what I should do about this opportunity to meet him. I decided to approach his table.

Angelina Jolie: an actor of style and a director of substance | Observer profile
Keen to make films about subjects many would avoid, the film star and activist is as likely to be found discussing the Khmer Rouge, subject of her new film, as featuring in glamour magazines

The meeting with Angelina Jolie was going so well. The Vanity Fair reporter Evgenia Peretz was welcomed into the “11,000 square foot beaux arts mansion” in Los Feliz, which the 42-year-old actress and her six children acquired after her divorce last year from Brad Pitt.

Peretz marvelled at the “rolling lawns, lush trees”, the kitchen “worthy of a Nancy Meyers movie”, the “charming grey library with a library ladder”. When the interview hit the stands in July, however, it prompted an outcry from Team Jolie and controversy over comments she made about the casting process behind her latest film.

Action Bronson: the rapper sending food TV fans into raptures | Ed Cumming

He’s big, bearded and very sweary. He’s also on a mission to tell you about great food. Ed Cumming talks to Action Bronson

Speaking to Action Bronson, the thick-bearded, 300lb tattooed Albanian-American rapper who has forged a second career as a gourmand TV presenter, it seems surprising that more musicians aren’t foodies. Surfing from city to city on expense accounts, with plenty of free afternoons, life on tour offers a lot of scope for exploring out-of-the-way restaurants and eateries.

“Music and food go hand in hand,” Bronson explains. “The dish in the middle of the table is like the song you put on for everyone to start grooving to. It’s the language of the world, a way of bringing people together.”

My partner has sex with other people, which I find exciting but also difficult

I don’t want to take the easy way out and try to renegotiate monogamy so what should I do?

I am a 36-year-old man and have been in a very good relationship for three years. My partner has gradually become more interested in polyamory, and I find that exciting. When she has had sex with someone else, it often feels very special and affectionate when we are together again – and sometimes very arousing – but it can be difficult to have penetrative sex. I don’t want to take the easy way out and try to renegotiate monogamy. What is the way forward?

I doubt that “renegotiating monogamy” would be the “easy way out”. But you are allowed to change your mind, and if polyamory is not for you, it is important to say so and be clear about what you can and cannot handle. You are at a stage of exploration, and our society is focused on monogamy, so stepping outside those values can seem frightening. What will anchor you both is having a strong core relationship with a great deal of discussion, sharing your feelings and asking for what you truly need.

Art and culture on the rise in revitalised Aalborg

With its revamped waterfront, arts scene and pretty old town, Aalborg, Denmark’s most northerly city, makes a perfect Scandi short break

The industrial spirit of Aalborg once ran through Denmark’s fourth city as deeply as the Limfjord, which slices North Jutland from coast to coast. But with the demise of many factories, the city has transformed itself, and added new cultural attractions. And with a new thrice-weekly Ryanair flight from Stansted (Norwegian already flies daily from Gatwick) it makes for a great city break.

Anna Jones’s recipe for late summer sweetcorn and tomato curry | The modern cook

Throw the last of the summer harvest into a sweetcorn and tomato curry spiked with chilli, alongside a tower of quick homemade chapatis

My summer was far too short and I’m not ready to let go just yet. I’m wishing with everything I have for another few weeks of sunshine, dinners outside, feet on grass, iced coffees. I don’t yet feel the lure of crisp autumn leaves, knitwear and bowls of soup ... it will come, I know, but for now I’m hell-bent on keeping summer going as long as I can.

So, this week I am doing all I can to encourage an Indian summer, throwing the final spoils of warm weather into a quick curry with some soft chapatis. My kitchen is still cheerful with bowls of tomatoes, citrus, squash and ears of corn. Late corn, less sweet than its earlier renditions, still in paper husks, is all the better for a gentle braise with some spice and a few tomatoes, easy chapati breads as a sidekick, which are even quite meditative to make.

Launch of iPhone X is a reminder of the perils of paying monthly for your mobile
Mobile users locked into contracts are vastly overpaying to use their handsets. But there are ways that you can save

When the Apple chief executive, Tim Cook, took to the stage of the company’s new Steve Jobs theatre to unveil the iPhone X, it was not just the range of new functions that caught people’s attention, it was also the price.

At £999 and £1,149, depending on the storage, the phone is the most expensive the company has ever released – but for consumers at least it is clear. The same cannot be said for the billing systems surrounding mobile phones through which the vast majority of people pay too much for their monthly contract.

Gwyneth Paltrow thinks you should try colonic irrigation. Is she right?

Paltrow makes great claims for it on her site Goop and others agree. But the medical evidence shows it does more harm than good

Do you believe that washing out your colon gives you energy and may improve headaches, allergies and acne? Colonic therapy is encouraged by celebrity endorsements and their websites. Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop claims “For the uninitiated, a colonic is essentially a way to hydrate and irrigate your colon – a section of your intestines that’s approximately five feet long – by filling it with warm water and then flushing it out repeatedly.” Goop acknowledges the efficacy of colonics is “often debated”, but offers Dr Alejandro Junger to guide us. The clue in the direction he is leaning is the 20 “Dr Junger’s Gut Cleanses” the site is giving away.

Nigel Slater’s autumn fruit and nut recipes

New apples, the last summer squash, early walnuts, late berries, and wild mushrooms – it’s a brilliant time to be in the kitchen

Sweet young mussels, crisp new season’s nuts, wild mushrooms, early apples and late berries – could there be a better time of the year to shop for food? This month’s recipes make the most of the early nuts – the fat cobnuts and sweet walnuts – and the last of the green-fleshed summer squashes. Wild mushrooms are cooked with sweet-flesh young birds and there are berries to use too – the late blackberries and autumn raspberries for adding to roast and sautéed meat and tucking into little homemade pies and tarts. The best ingredients of the season, splendidly yet simply, on a plate.

Nadine Levy Redzepi: What do you cook for the world's best chef?

Nadine Levy Redzepi on cooking as a child, collecting her grandma’s recipes and being married to Noma’s René Redzepi – plus six beautiful family recipes from her brilliant new cookbook

What to feed the best chef in the world? For 19-year-old Nadine Levy, on a night off from her job front of house and cooking for her new boss and boyfriend, it was chicken livers with tomatoes and chilli. She wasn’t to know it was René Redzepi’s favourite meal as a child. It was 2005, they were breaking the strict Noma rule against dating other staff but Redzepi had thrown a piece of bread at her head and made her his “seal-the-deal” pasta. The cheffy spaghetti worked and she was won over.

Love of food played a major part in Levy Redzepi’s early life. “It starts really, really early for me,” she says. “My good memories are all connected to food.” Her parents were buskers with two young kids living on a Portuguese smallholding. Money was tight but while her beloved older brother went to school (he was eight when she was born and got to name her after the Chuck Berry song), Nadine played in the fields, picked fruit and herbs and olives with her mum. Her clearest recollection from Portugal is of eating pomegranates from the tree, still warm from the sun. A good neighbour would regularly pop by with buckets of ripe tomatoes. It was almost Arcadian. But her father drank and when life went wrong her brother would cover her eyes and sing to her. Not all memories are happy.

The origins of clean eating

Why the fashion for restricted diets has been around longer than we might think

People talk about orthorexia, an eating disorder that takes the form of an obsession with healthy food, as if it were a new thing – or, at least, an illness that has broken cover recently, encouraged by those who spend their days posting pictures of their fantastical beet- and cashew-based diets on Instagram. But as Laura Shapiro reveals in her new book, What She Ate: Six Remarkable Women and the Food that Tells Their Stories, the condition has been with us for decades – sometimes in plain sight. It was back in 1959 that Helen Gurley Brown, future editor of Cosmopolitan and bestselling author of Sex and the Single Girl, first walked into the Los Angeles health-food store on whose shelves she saw the (terrifying) future.

Gurley Brown was then feeling rather glum: David Brown, her movie executive boyfriend, was refusing to marry her, and she had just finished an assignment at the Miss Universe Pageant at Long Beach, which had done her ego no good at all (all those younger, prettier girls).
