Davos 2018: Cate Blanchett calls for more help for refugees - live updates

Rolling coverage of the opening day of the World Economic Forum in Davos, including speeches by Indian PM Narendra Modi and Canada’s Justin Trudeau

Winnie Byanyima, the head of Oxfam International, is speaking powerfully about sexual exploitation against women around the globe.

All the women in the world should be grateful to American women for taking a stand, and saying “Me Too”, Byanyima says, referring to the campaign that spread around the globe after the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

It has brought new attention to a problem that is deep.

All of them told us that they had faced sexual harassment or knew someone who had faced sexual harassment. It goes on with impunity.

It is not an accident that women are abused sexually at work or at home. It’s due to the social norms that are there to justify their economic exploitation.

In the wake of the resolution to the US government shutdown, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was initially expected to open higher.

But when trading began the Dow dipped 27 points or 0.1%, with investors moving on to worry about the impact of Donald Trump’s move to impose steep import tariffs, including possible retaliation. South Korea and China both protested at the duties on washing machines and solar panels.

Russia urged to delay Death of Stalin release until summer

Delay would avoid Armando Iannucci film clashing with Battle of Stalingrad anniversary, culture ministry advisers say

Russia should postpone the release of a black comedy about the death of Joseph Stalin to avoid it clashing with the 75th anniversary of the end of the Battle of Stalingrad, members of an advisory committee to the culture ministry have said.

Pavel Pozhigailo, a high-ranking committee member, said The Death of Stalin, directed by Armando Iannucci, the film-maker behind the political satires Veep and The Thick of It, “insults our historic symbols – the Soviet anthem, orders and medals”. He also complained that Marshal Zhukov, the Soviet military commander, “is portrayed as a fool” in the film.

Brazil braces for corruption appeal that could make or break ex-president

Civil unrest expected as Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, still hugely popular despite corruption conviction, fights to stay in upcoming election race

Brazil is bracing for a historic court decision which could remove the most popular leader in modern Brazilian history from an election he is currently poised to win – and may prove devastating to the leftwing Workers’ party he founded.

Nerves are stretched taut ahead of Wednesday’s appeals court decision, in which three judges will decide whether or not to uphold the conviction of former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva on corruption and money laundering charges.

The kill chain: inside the unit that tracks targets for US drone wars

Amid Kansas bean fields military analysts watch live video of far-off suspects’ lives … and mark them for death. The killings, and accompanying civilian casualties, take an emotional toll

In a dimly lit room at McConnell air force base in south central Kansas, analysts from a national guard intelligence reconnaissance surveillance group watch live drone surveillance video coming from war zones in the Middle East.

During combat, the analysts become part of a “kill chain” – analyzing live drone video, then communicating what they see – in instant-message chat with jet fighter pilots, operators of armed Predator and Reaper drones, and ground troops.

‘Never get high on your own supply’ – why social media bosses don’t use social media

Developers of platforms such as Facebook have admitted that they were designed to be addictive. Should we be following the executives’ example and going cold turkey – and is it even possible for mere mortals?

Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t use Facebook like you or me. The 33-year-old chief executive has a team of 12 moderators dedicated to deleting comments and spam from his page, according to Bloomberg. He has a “handful” of employees who help him write his posts and speeches and a number of professional photographers who take perfectly stage-managed pictures of him meeting veterans in Kentucky, small-business owners in Missouri or cheesesteak vendors in Philadelphia.

Facebook’s locked-down nature means mere mortals can’t see the private posts on Zuckerberg’s timeline, but it is hard to imagine him getting into arguments about a racist relative’s post of an anti-immigration meme. And it is not just Zuckerberg. None of the company’s key executives has a “normal” Facebook presence. You can’t add them as friends, they rarely post publicly and they keep private some information that the platform suggests be made public by default, such as the number of friends they have.

Hugh Masekela obituary: South African jazz pioneer who fought the evil of apartheid

Trumpeter and singer-songwriter who was a propulsive force in jazz in South Africa and a tireless campaigner against apartheid in exile

Hugh Masekela, who has died aged 78, was one of the world’s finest and most distinctive horn players, whose perfoming on trumpet and flugelhorn mixed jazz with South African styles and music from across the African continent and diaspora. Exiled from his country for 30 years, he was also a powerful singer and songwriter and an angry political voice, using his music and live performances to attack the apartheid regime that had banished him from his homeland.

Even when he had returned to the country of his birth under the leadership of Nelson Mandela, after having lived and worked in the US and in Botswana, Masekela continued to comment fearlessly on political events in South Africa and around the world, enjoying his status as an international celebrity, playing for presidents and royalty and concert audiences, and often collaborating with other musical greats.

Germaine Greer criticises 'whingeing' #MeToo movement

Author says women should react immediately to abuse, and historical claims will result in ‘OJ Simpson trial all over again’

Harvey Weinstein and Woody Allen have found an unlikely defender in the influential feminist Germaine Greer, who has criticised the “whingeing” #MeToo movement.

In an interview with Australian media before she was named Australian of the year in London, Greer said she had “always wanted to see women react immediately” when they were faced with sexual abuse or harassment.

How a new technology is changing the lives of people who cannot speak

Millions are robbed of the power of speech by illness, injury or lifelong conditions. Can the creation of bespoke digital voices transform their ability to communicate? By Jordan Kisner

Last November, Joe Morris, a 31-year-old film-maker from London, noticed a sore spot on his tongue. He figured he’d bitten himself in his sleep and thought nothing more about it until halfway through the winter holidays, when he realised the sore was still with him. He Googled “cut on tongue won’t heal” and, after sifting through pages of medical information on oral cancer, he decided to call his doctor.

The cut was nothing, Joe was sure: he was a non-smoker with no family history of cancer. But he’d make an appointment, just in case.

Wonky desks, giant fig trees and mindfulness classes: is this the office of the future?

Second Home is reinventing office life. Is yours next? Step inside its world of vintage chairs, froth insulation and zig-zagging walkways

A wall of transparent plastic has been stretched across the gap between two mews houses. It’s a bit steamed up but, as I peer inside this makeshift structure, I can make out the tips of spiky leaves, just visible through what seems to be a cloud of frothing white bubbles. It looks like someone’s having a foam party in an illicit backstreet cannabis farm, but this is actually the latest outpost of a company determined to make going to work not just another day in the office.

“We always want people to think ‘What’s that?’ and be drawn inside our buildings,” says Rohan Silva, the 37-year-old co-founder of Second Home, provider of “unique workspaces and cultural venues for entrepreneurs and innovators”. The company opened its first space in Spitalfields, east London, in 2014 and now boasts users ranging from tiny tech startups to the likes of Volkswagen and auditing giant KPMG.

An evening with 'deplorables': inside the alt-right party in Manhattan

The so-called ‘A Night For Freedom’ featured Hillary-baiting, anti-feminism – and a surprise appearance by Chelsea Manning

On Saturday night hundreds of self-described “deplorables”, arch-conservative internet personalities, trolls-turned-citizen journalists, and conspiracy theory enthusiasts put on their best suits and cocktail dresses to drink, dance and toast the Trump presidency at an exclusive rightwing social gala called A Night For Freedom.

It’s unclear if there was an element of trolling in the decision to hold a pro-Trump bonanza in Manhattan, the same day several hundred thousand people participated in a city-wide “women’s march”, but if there was, then the party’s masterminds were almost foiled at their own game.

Australian Open: Wozniacki advances as Nadal goes out – as it happened

Caroline Wozniacki is in the semi-finals at Melbourne Park after overcoming Carla Suárez Navarro in three sets after Rafa Nadal was forced to retire with injury in the deciding set against Marin Cilic

Wozniacki speaks: “I knew it wasn’t going to be that easy,” she says. “A lot of games in the first set were quite close, but I was proud that I managed to stay cool. She [Suarez Navarro] improved in the second set and made me step back to the baseline. I stepped a bit closer to the baseline in the third set and I feel had a little more energy in the end.” On Elise Mertens, her semi-final opponent, she says “she’s had an amazing start to the year. It’s gonna be a tough one.”

Wozniacki found another gear in that final set just when she needed it - and she’ll need it again in her semi-final when she goes in search of her first appearance in the final at Melbourne and, of course, that elusive slam.

Third set: Wozniacki* 6-0, 6-7, 6-2 Suárez Navarro (*denotes server) Wozniacki rounds off an impressive performance by securing victory with some comfort. A bit of late-80s pop nostalgia with Mental as Anything’s Live It Up played on the PA serenades the players back on court. Wozniacki begins with another excellent first serve, that enables an easy one-two and a 15-0 lead. Another two errors from her opponent takes the Dane to three match points. She squanders the first of them with a netted forehand after a long rally and some more focused returning from Suarez Navarro, but secures her place in the semi-finals when the Spaniard overhits from the back of the court again. Wozniacki raises her arms – she’s in the last four, and it’s 1.39am local time.

The verdict: who has done better out of the Sánchez-Mkhitaryan deal?
Manchester United and Arsenal have traded attacking players – our writers discuss who has come out on top from the swap

The swap deal which saw Alexis Sánchez join Manchester United and Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to Arsenal was finally confirmed on Monday after weeks of negotiations. The Chile forward has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract at Old Trafford worth an estimated £350,000 a week, while Mkhitaryan is now contracted to Arsenal until 2021 having left United only 18 months after joining from Borussia Dortmund for £27m.

Both José Mourinho and Arsène Wenger appear happy with their new acquisitions but which manager has got the better end of the deal and will both players be successful at their new clubs? Our writers give their verdict on one of the most significant transfers in recent years.

Kyle Edmund to face Cilic in Australian Open semis after Nadal retires
  • Briton beats third seed 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 at Melbourne Park
  • Rafael Nadal forced to retire in fifth set against Marin Cilic

Kyle Edmund is through to the semi-finals of a slam for the first time after beating the world No 3, Grigor Dimitrov, in four sets on day nine of the Australian Open – and the 23-year-old Yorkshireman might allow himself at least a moment to dream about the ultimate prize on Sunday afternoon.

He has already declared he thinks he can win it. Now he is two wins away from delivering on that conviction. If his body and brain hold up under the biggest examination yet of his temperament and ability, he will give himself chance to become the first British man to win here since Fred Perry 84 years ago.

What is the Uefa Nations League – and will it be successful?
Designed to end the ‘meaningless friendly’, Wednesday’s draw for the inaugural competition has good intentions. But will it actually work?

When Uefa first began seriously discussing the prospect of a brand new international competition, back in 2011, their intentions were honourable enough. The lustre of national team football had faded steadily over the previous decade, largely due to the club game’s suffocating spread but also due to the contemporary nature of the beast.

Friendly matches, seen by managers as valuable testing grounds but by the public and – in some cases – players as halfhearted trudges, had become little more than ballast in the calendar; qualifying for major tournaments had, for the leading lights, generally become a procession. If the latter owed partly to the geopolitical changes within Europe since 1989 and a slew of successor states whose football infrastructure lagged behind the rest, it merely emphasised that a little agility was long overdue.

Chris Jordan relishing most lucrative and unpredictable IPL yet | The Spin

Fresh from success in New Zealand, the 29-year-old is one of many England cricketers among the 578 players up for auction

With the salary cap up by 20%, 578 players up for grabs and no team having retained more than three members of their last squads, this weekend’s Indian Premier League auction is destined to be a tale of high drama and even higher numbers. Outside India there will surely be nowhere with more people showing more interest in the event than Perth, where the Australia and England teams will be playing their final one-day international and the tourists’ ranks will be further swelled by the arrival of those members of their Twenty20 squad not already involved in the ODI series.

A few hours’ flight due north of Perth Chris Jordan is preparing for the auction in Bali. On Saturday he was in the Northern Districts Knights team that beat Central Districts Stags in the final of New Zealand’s Super Smash Twenty20, leaving him a few days to refresh before the drama to come.

Colin Montgomerie backs Europe’s rising stars to threaten US in Ryder Cup
• Former captain praises form of Rahm, García and Fleetwood
• ‘Thomas Bjorn must be thrilled with the state of European golf’

Endorsement of European Ryder Cup claims has arrived from one of the team’s most celebrated former members. Colin Montgomerie, who was never defeated in the Ryder Cup’s singles and captained Europe to victory over the USA in 2010, believes this year’s event will be far closer than many think.

The US are odds-on to retain the cup in France but recent events have boosted European confidence. Jon Rahm, Sergio García and Tommy Fleetwood all recorded tournament wins on Sunday. Rahm has now been elevated to world No 2.

Brexit threatens European social progress – leftwingers must speak up | Natalie Nougayrède

Now is the time for campaigners across the continent to reach out to Labour, and help stop Britain from going off the rails

Thirty years ago a French socialist, Jacques Delors, then president of the European commission, travelled to Bournemouth to speak to the British Trades Union Congress. Delors argued for a “social Europe” in a speech that contributed to swinging the mood among the British left, parts of which had long had misgivings about the European project – doubts that linger today.

Last week Emmanuel Macron, who has promoted the idea of a “Europe that protects”, travelled to London for a meeting with Theresa May. Yet for all the resemblance of his ideas to Delors’, Macron didn’t once say the words “social Europe”. This was a missed opportunity.

The Time’s Up rally showed you can be both a trans ally and a feminist | Amelia Abraham
In the face of horrible transphobia, it’s high time that trans women are included in the fight for gender equality

In sleet and rain, opposite 10 Downing Street on Sunday, I stood in a crowd cheering Britain’s most revered feminists as they took the stage one by one. There was Helen Pankhurst, activist and granddaughter of Emmeline, who spoke about how far we’ve come in 100 years since women’s partial suffrage, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, the lesbian founder of UK Black Pride, and Stella Creasy, the MP for Walthamstow.

One of the biggest cheers however, was reserved for Paris Lees, transgender journalist and campaigner. “I’m here for the same reason a lot of you are here: because we need each other,” said Lees. “Every woman counts. Every woman deserves to be safe. Every woman deserves to live her life without limit. And we leave no one behind.”

Yes, Jacinda Ardern can combine work with a baby – but it’s not for every woman | Chitra Ramaswamy

With enough support, the New Zealand PM will certainly be able to continue to work as a new parent. But women who choose to be full-time mothers should not be made to feel ashamed

The reaction to New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern’s pregnancy in office is two-pronged. First, the standard woke response. Of course a woman can be prime minister and a mum! Women are multitaskers! This whole fierce story represents all that is anti-Trump about the world! As Ardern herself put it: “It’s what ladies do.” Sample that, Beyoncé.

Second, the standard misogynistic response, which will be given all the attention it deserves.

Even at Davos, capitalism’s critics are now centre stage | Rafael Behr
The Corbynites channel a widely held feeling that capitalism is not working. But they are cagey about what would come next

A Swiss mountain retreat for global business elites is not the obvious place to meet sworn enemies of capitalism. It is more the kind of place to hang out with aspiring European finance ministers. That John McDonnell happens to be both of those things makes him one of the more exotic guests at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.

McDonnell’s attendance is less surprising than it would have been a few years ago. When the shadow chancellor and his friend Jeremy Corbyn were rebellious Labour backbenchers, they had no time for oligarchic Alpine jamborees. (Plus they weren’t invited.) That old scorn might not have been forgotten, but the prospect of real power – not anticipated by either man before last year’s election – imposes new nuances of tone. According to a spokesman, McDonnell travels to Switzerland “to explain Labour’s vision for an alternative economic approach to replace the current model of capitalism”.

The Guardian view on Davos and inequality: a demagogue takes advantage

Democracies will fall under the spell of populists like Donald Trump if they fail to deal with the fallout of globalisation

The rich, as F Scott Fitzgerald noted, “are different from you and me”. Their wealth, he wrote, makes them “cynical where we are trustful” and their affluence makes them think they are “better than we are”. These words ring truest among the billionaires and corporate executives flocking to the Swiss ski resort of Davos this week. The highs recorded by stockmarkets, the tremendous monopoly power of tech titans and spikes in commodity prices reassure the rich cosmocratic class that they have weathered the storm of the financial crisis. The moguls can talk safely about inequality and poverty. But they will do little about it because they do not think their best interests are aligned with citizens. This is a mistake of historic proportions.

Since 2015, Oxfam calculates, the richest 1% have owned more wealth than the rest of the planet. The very wealthy think they no longer share a common fate with the poor. Whatever the warm words at Davos, no company bosses will put their hands up to the fact they play one country against another in order to avoid taxes; no firm will be honest about their attempts to stymie trade unions or about how they lobby against government regulation on labour, environment or privacy that tilts the balance of power away from them and towards the public. The largest western corporations and banks now roam the globe freely. As memories of the financial crisis recede, they are going back to the myth that they are no longer dependent on national publics or governments. Lobbyists for the corporate world claim that markets are on autopilot, that government is a nuisance best avoided.

'Invisible no longer': women in film on the female directors the Oscars must celebrate

We asked women working in film to tell us the standout films with female directors deserving of Oscar recognition this year

Award season has not been kind to female directors in 2018. There were no women directors nominated at the Baftas, nor at the Golden Globes, where Natalie Portman introduced “the all-male nominees” when taking the stage, and stars have lined up to blame a wider gender imbalance in the industry for the discrepancy.

Office lol-itics: the evolution of the workplace sitcom

The dark nihilism of new comedy Corporate marks an interesting new stage in the subgenre that’s grown from The Mary Tyler Moore Show to The Office

“If you work for a living, then why kill yourself working?”

That old aphorism, paraphrased for the third-season finale of Weeds, cuts to the core of American pop culture’s complicated relationship to the almighty job. Showtime’s cannabis comedy is by no means a classic workplace sitcom, and yet it did occasionally lunge at a deeper truth about the psychology of work: that people will readily make their own lives worse in exchange for money or the ancillary power, security, and consistency that come with it.

Zosia? Timothée? How to say the names of Hollywood’s superstars

A guide to pronouncing the trickiest names in Tinseltown - from Téa Leoni to Chloë Sevigny, Domhnall Gleeson and beyond

I am very Irish, and I have an extremely Irish name,” announced Saoirse Ronan as she guest-hosted Saturday Night Live last year. “It means ‘freedom’. But I’ve got a little problem: it’s spelled wrong. It’s a full typo …” Ronan then went on to sing a ditty about how her name should be pronounced. Not Circei, not Sushi, but SIR-Sha. Since her charming turn as the lead in Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig’s latest indie wisecrack-marathon (coming to the UK on 16 February), Saoirse has been the inconvenient name on many lips. But it certainly isn’t the first to flub underprepared interviewers. Even fellow actors can struggle when it comes to pronouncing the names of their peers. In 2014, Hollywood’s Scientology overlord and occasional actor John Travolta awkwardly introduced Let It Go hitmaker Idina Menzel to the Oscars stage via a mumbled “Adele Dazeem”. To save your blushes, we’ve compiled a rundown of the tricksiest names in Tinseltown.

How the sushi boom is fuelling tapeworm infections

As eating raw fish has become more popular, gruesome tapeworm tales have emerged. But how worried should sashimi lovers be – and how else might we become infected?

The good news, said A&E doctor Kenny Bahn, was that the patient who had turned up at the emergency department was not dying. That is about the only happy element of the story Bahn, who works at a hospital in California, went on to tell on This Won’t Hurt a Bit, a medical podcast, about a man who arrived at hospital carrying a plastic bag. Inside the bag, wrapped around the cardboard tube of a toilet roll, was a 1.7-metre (5ft 6in) tapeworm. Bahn measured it once he had unravelled it on the hospital floor.

The patient had complained of abdominal pain. During a bout of bloody diarrhoea, reports Bahn, “he says: ‘I look down and I look like there’s a piece of intestine hanging out of me.’ What’s racing through his mind is he thinks he’s dying … He grabs it and he pulls on it and it keeps coming out. ‘What is this long piece of entrail?’ And he picks it up and looks at it and what does it do?” There is a dramatic pause to enhance the horror. “It starts moving.”

Weekend warriors: adventure beckons in the Brecon Beacons

With abseiling, ziplining over a river, rafting and hikes, a two-night camping adventure in the south Wales national park proves energy-sapping – and boundless fun

A cold nose shows you’re stressed – what else does?
A study at the University of Nottingham has shown that blood drains from someone’s face when they are under stress. Here are the other bodily signs to look out for

Touch your nose. If it is cold, you may need to calm down. Science, by using thermal imaging cameras and stressing the hell out of students, has discovered that stress causes a cold nose (and face). Blood moves from the face to other parts of the body that might need it more in a dangerous situation, such as muscles and limbs. This can be useful, if you need to be alert for something, such as jumping out of the way of a moving car. But chronic stress can have a dangerous effect on the body. Here are some other ways your body is telling you that you are stressed.

Tamal Ray's recipe for honey and almond brittle biscuits

These teatime cookies are absurdly easy, needing just a stir and a short stint in the oven

The act of caramelising sugar, with its blowtorches and crystallisation points, can seem intimidating to the novice baker. Although the chemical reaction itself is complex, transforming a homogenous jumble of simple sucrose molecules into a thousand new forms, the actual process is a simple introduction of heat to sugar. These biscuits are a celebration of that dichotomy: an absurdly easy method, comprising no more than a bit of stirring and a short stint in the oven, to produce a complex mix of dark, rich sweetness.

Anna Jones’s kale recipes

January is all about wintry greens such as kale, which brings a bright and fresh note to verdant garlic pasta, and a deep and rich one to a hearty soup

I am in a green phase, and drawn like a moth to sea-green velvet cushions and dresses, while the tear sheets for my new kitchen are an almost-black green. I’m sure this is all inspired by the minerally winter greens of the season, which are ever-present in my cooking right now. The majestic cavolo nero – an intense black-blue green that’s hard to match – is most beautiful when wet, with tiny droplets of water running down its dusty leaves. Or the pleasingly curly kale with its forest-green frills (or, if you’re lucky, deep burgundy-purple ones). The verdant freshness of these greens has me using them daily at this time of year: here are two of my favourites.

MPs urge Home Office to rethink statelessness procedure

Labour MPs say system is dysfunctional after 64 people granted protection in three years

MPs have called for a review of the way the Home Office handles applications from stateless people, saying the current procedure is “totally dysfunctional”, after the Guardian highlighted the Kafkaesque reasons people are refused.

The shadow home secretary, Diane Abbott, was among the MPs who urged the Home Office to reconsider the way it assesses cases under the statelessness procedure, which was introduced in 2013. By the end of 2016 only 64 people had been recognised as stateless and granted protection in the UK.

School of Rock cast — where are they now?

Richard Linklater’s 2003 film was huge then and it’s still a classic. But where are the cast now? Are the kids throwing TVs out of hotel bedrooms like real rock stars? Let’s find out

Jack Black (Dewey Finn)
Three years after Black’s breakout role in High Fidelity, he won our hearts, critical acclaim, and a Golden Globe nomination for his role as Dewey Finn in School of Rock. After that, he went on to play an obsessed Orson-Welles-like film-maker in Peter Jackson’s King Kong, voiced the title role in Kung Fu Panda, and is just about to grace our screens again, next to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. But he didn’t just leave his guitar in its case all that time – Black’s band, Tenacious D (formed in 1994 with Kyle Gass) continues to rock on away from the screens. They’ve been working on their new album and Black reckons they’ll be finished some time in 2018.

10 Spanish adventures to have with your children

Home to breathtaking scenery and delicious food, and within easy reach of the UK, northern Spain makes an ideal holiday destination for families. Here are 10 unmissable adventures to share with your children

Hike in the Picos de Europa
Most routes in this spectacular national park can be enjoyed in a day. Try the six-mile Bajo los Picos trail above pretty Mogrovejo village – a gentle uphill forest trail that emerges into meadows surrounded by soaring mountains. The paths are clearly marked and easy to follow, but don’t forget to pack plenty of water, food and sun cream, as there aren’t any shops around.

Go caving in Costa Verde
Caves hold mystery and intrigue for all ages, so don’t miss Cantabria’s biggest attraction – a replica of world heritage-listed Altamira cave near Santillana del Mar, where the walls are filled with Paleolithic art. Also worth seeking out is El Soplao cave in Cantabria, where children can explore six miles of geological formations, learn about stalagmites and stalagtites, and gaze in awe at fossilised insects in amber from millions of years ago.

It’s more important than ever to bring up kids to be financially savvy, says Louise Court. Here’s how to teach your children what matters – from managing their pocket money to saving. It’s never too early

I opened up saving accounts for my kids when they were born, but to my “bad mum” shame I could have been better at making regular contributions into them. I know that setting your children up to be smart financially is part of the parental remit and looking back there are loads of things I wish I’d known, and certainly wish I’d done. Most of my advice has been about working hard and avoiding debt, rather than educating my kids on how to make their money work really hard for them.

The digital revolution is changing the whole experience of money and how you manage it. Popping into your bank for some friendly advice is a thing of the past. Our children now face a cashless future, with coins and notes predicted to disappear. How that will work remains to be seen, but at the very least it must surely be bad for the employment prospects of the tooth fairy – I’m sure you can’t put bitcoins under a pillow!

Whatever form it comes in – from the physical cash you give them as pocket money to the online vouchers they may get as birthday presents – when you ask the experts, the number-one rule about money remains the same: spend less than you earn.

'I travel to feel a sense of wonder. How about you?'

Have you ever asked yourself why you travel? Sunvil co-founder Noel Josephides has devoted some time to the question himself and come up with a few answers of his own

My wanderings began when I was a child and my parents drove us all the way from our home in Cyprus to the UK by car. Mainland Europe was verdant and seemed so very different from our parched-looking island. I remember the very first time I slept under a duvet was in Austria. It made me realise that I want to always feel a sense of wonder, and to discover something new. Travel gives me that. Here are just a few reasons why I like to travel. I’d love to hear yours …

Rachel Roddy’s winter tomato sauce recipe

The ingredients may be few, but the flavour is plentiful – and it’s all about the tinned tomatoes

For several years now, I have used an empty tomato tin as a pen holder on my desk. Even though it rarely contains a pen or pencil that actually works – it’s more a receptacle for estranged lids and coins – the picture on the tin, a trio of bright-red plum tomatoes, makes me happy every time it catches my eye. It’s the same feeling I get when I open the kitchen cupboard and see a half-dozen tins and bottles, their tomato-emblazoned labels reminders of the sun, which is especially welcome in January. I find taking a tin of plum tomatoes from the shelf a reassuring thing, too. It’s the palm-filling size and familiar weight, the knowledge that the contents, which bellyflop into a pan, are constant and that you are halfway to dinner.

You do need to know your tomatoes, though. As with anything, this means trying and tasting and finding a brand you like, and that suits your pocket. When it comes to the tinned variety, I tend to stick to whole plum tomatoes, usually Italian San Marzano – firm-fleshed and with just a bit of juice. These are never the cheapest, but neither are they the most expensive. Bless whoever invented the key that allows you to roll back the lid, especially satisfying with the 800g tins. When I’m opening one of those, it’s probably for tomato sauce, which is probably destined for pasta.

Stairway to heaven: hiking ancient pilgrimage trails in southern Japan

Mountainous Kumano is the holy ground of Japan and pilgrims have been trekking there for centuries. Shrines, mist, forests and waterfalls combine to create an entrancing hike

Normally I am not given to praying but the occasion demands it. After bowing twice and clapping twice, I make a silent entreaty that my trek will go well. My obeisance is taking place in front of a small wooden building, rather like a summerhouse. It is a shrine in the town of Takijiri-oji, a starting point for the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trails.

Kumano is the traditional name for the southern part of Japan’s Kii peninsula. It contains pilgrimage routes dating back more than a millennium. The first pilgrims were adherents of Shinto who travelled to worship beside the natural wonders of the sacred Kii mountains. Later pilgrims followed an amalgam of Shinto and Buddhism.

Thai seafood: are the prawns on your plate still fished by slaves?

Report finds trafficking persists on Thai fishing boats, as campaigners challenge supermarkets to guarantee products are free of rights abuses

Thailand’s billion-dollar seafood export industry remains infested with human rights abuses despite government pledges to stamp out slavery in its fishing industry, according to research by Human Rights Watch.

Four years after damning revelations of chattel slavery aboard Thai fishing boats linked to seafood exported and sold by major retailers around the world, a report says that rights violations in one of Thailand’s major export industries continue unabated, including forced labour and widespread human trafficking.

Why the climate of Game of Thrones is about more than the arrival of winter

We modelled the climate for George RR Martin’s series for fun, but there’s a serious side to predicting weather for a fictional world

For fans disappointed that the next series of Game of Thrones won’t be on our screens until 2019, here’s some food for thought: an attack on Westeros would be most likely to come from the south in winter and north in summer, according to a climate model of the world of Game of Thrones.

Furthermore, the model also sheds light on many mysteries surrounding the climate of the lands of Westeros and Essos – including the likely hibernation zones of White Walkers and the similarities between The Wall and Lapland.

Facebook: we were too slow to recognise our 'corrosive' effect on democracy

Social network hiring 10,000 more staff to combat spread of fake news, and harassment use of Facebook as a weapon in ‘cyberwar’

Facebook has admitted to being “too slow to recognise” Russian election interference, but says that social networks simply reflect human intent, “good and bad”.

In a blogpost, Facebook product manager Samidh Chakrabarti says that “at its best, [social media] allows us to express ourselves and take action. At its worst, it allows people to spread misinformation and corrode democracy.

‘Trump hasn’t just done a good job, he’s done a great job' – the view from Muncie, Indiana

Gary Younge spent a month in the ‘archetypal’ US town before last year’s election. The people swung for Trump, but how do they feel a year on?

Griffin Timmerman, six, is a runner. Given the opportunity, the small, lively boy, who has autism and prefers to play on his own, would just keep going. He once ran into the road; this is one of the reasons why his family moved out of Muncie, Indiana, to the country, giving him more space and free rein for his energy.

It is also why his family paid $20,000 (£14,500) in health insurance last year, which they bought on the Obamacare exchange. For that they got, among other things, a regular assistant for Griffin, who accompanied him to school and helped him integrate socially with his peers. “It’s crazy,” says Kelsey, his father, who is an author. “It’s our biggest expense as a family. But since it got Griffin what he needed, we were prepared to pay it again this year.”

On the Amazon’s lawless frontier, murder mystery divides the locals and loggers

The violent murder of Sairá Ka’apor, in a logging town in Brazil’s Maranhão state, is still unsolved. But the story is all too familiar for the indigenous people fighting to protect the forest

Sairá Ka’apor patrolled one of the most murderous frontiers in the world, a remote and largely lawless region of the Brazilian Amazon where his indigenous community has fought for generations to protect their forest land.

Armed with clubs, bows and arrows, GPS trackers and crude guns, he and fellow members of Ka’apor Forest Guard drove off – and sometimes attacked – loggers who intruded into their territory, the 530,000-hectare Alto Turiaçu Indigenous Land, which is roughly three times the area of Greater London and contains about half of the Amazon forest left in Brazil’s northern Maranhão state. That vigilante role came to an end last April when Sairá was stabbed to death in Betel, a logging town close to Ka’apor territory.

'A rabbit always has to run': Spanish rangers fear for lives after double murder

The killing of two rangers in Catalonia a year ago this week, marked a chilling turning point for colleagues facing up to increasing violence towards Europe’s wildlife defenders

On a hill above the olive trees and dun scrublands of western Catalonia, two rusty iron silhouettes maintain a still and silent vigil. One peers out over the land through a pair of binoculars; the other kneels and holds a bird forever on the cusp of release.

At their feet is a simple plaque: “In memory and recognition of Xavier Ribes Villas and David Iglesias Díez, wildlife rangers whose lives were taken in the line of duty on 21 January 2017.”

Khanji's matric dance: a South African student's rite of passage – photo essay

The final year of high school in South Africa is known as matric, and the ball held to mark it is a major event in students’ lives. Many spend a lot of time and money meticulously planning their outfits, getting dresses and suits custom-made. Photographer Alice Mann follows Khanyisa Mtulu as she prepares for her dance

Khanyi is from Phillipi, one of the most dangerous townships in Cape Town. It is an area that has one of the highest murder rates in the country, and where gang violence and drug abuse are rampant. Many families in the area face acute poverty and social challenges; dropping out of school is common. Pupils at Peak View high school, where Khanyi studies, often repeat grades in order to get to the final year of school, which is seen a success in itself, whether or not a student passes their final exams.

Satellite Eye on Earth: November and December 2017 - in pictures

Winter solstice, night lights and interesting islands are among the images captured by Nasa and the ESA last month

Dust blowing out of the Copper River valley on Alaska’s south coast. The dust plume was likely comprised of fine-grained loess, which was formed as glacial ice moved over the area and ground the underlying rock into a powder. Dust storms in southern Alaska generally occur in late autumn, when river levels are relatively low, snow has not yet fallen, and the layers of dried, loess-rich mud are exposed to the wind. The Copper River - named for ore deposits found upstream - drains an area of more than 24,000 square miles (62,000 square kilometres) and is, by volume of discharge, the 10th largest river in the United States. Its delta forms one of the largest and most productive wetlands on the Pacific Coast of North America.
