Tumore al polmone, in otto casi su dieci  questo «big killer» colpisce un fumatore

Ogni giorno in Italia circa 115 persone scoprono di avere un tumore ai polmoni (vai all’app gratuita del Corriere della Sera). Nel 2017 sono state oltre 41.800 le nuove diagnosi nel nostro Paese e in oltre l’80 per cento dei casi si tratta di tabagisti o ex. In pratica, senza tabacco, il temibile e letale carcinoma polmonare diventerebbe una malattia rara. «Invece rappresenta ancora oggi la prima causa di morte per cancro - dice Silvia Novello, membro del direttivo dell’Associazione Italiana di Oncologia Medica -. Purtroppo a cinque anni dalla diagnosi è vivo solo il 18 per cento dei pazienti, anche perché in più di sette casi su dieci viene scoperto tardi, quando è più difficile da curare e ha già dato metastasi, perché nei suoi stadi iniziali spesso non dà sintomi».

Greeks urged to leave homes as wildfires spread near Athens

Firefighters from across the country have been deployed to Kineta resort region

Greek authorities have urged residents of a coastal region near Athens to abandon their homes as an uncontrolled wildfire spread on Monday, closing one of Greece’s busiest motorways, halting trains and sending plumes of smoke over the capital.

Authorities deployed firefighters and equipment from across Greece to deal with the massive blaze at Kineta, a small resort town about 54km (35 miles) west of Athens on a route used by tens of thousands of drivers daily to reach the Peloponnese peninsula.

'White people are so fragile, bless 'em' … meet Rhiannon Giddens, banjo warrior

She pours fire and fury into powerful songs that target everything from police shootings to slavery. The musician reveals all about her mission to put the black back in bluegrass – and Shakespeare

‘We’re all racist to some degree,” says Rhiannon Giddens. “Just like we’re all privileged to some degree. I have privilege in my system because I’m light-skinned. I hear people say, ‘I didn’t have it easy growing up either.’ But when did it become a competition?”

As someone on a mission to bridge such divides, Giddens thinks about this stuff a lot. The Grammy-winning singer and songwriter was born to a white father and a black mother in Greensboro, North Carolina, in the late 1970s. Her parents married only three years after the landmark Loving v Virginia decision, which reversed the anti-miscegenation laws that had made interracial marriage illegal. Their union was still shocking enough that her father was disinherited.

Darwin comes to town: how cities are creating new species

From the nut-cracking crows of Sendai to ‘Turdus urbanicus’ (the new urban blackbird), animals are changing their behaviour and evolution in cities – and in dramatic and surprising ways

On the eve of the Euro 2016 final between France and Portugal, ground staff at the gigantic Stade de France in Paris had left the stadium’s lights on, for security reasons. Attracted by the blinding floodlights, thousands upon thousands of migrating Silver Y moths descended into the empty arena. Those not killed by the heat of the lamps eventually ended up among the grass of the playing surface, where, after the lights were turned off, they hid throughout the day of the big match.

As evening fell, 80,000 spectators took their seats and the lights were turned back on. The sleeping moths stirred, and soon thousands were zigzagging among the players. Photographs taken that night show annoyed football officials picking moths off each other’s suits, while the swarm blocked the lenses of TV cameras and hung from the goalposts. Perhaps the highlight came when Cristiano Ronaldo sat injured and weeping on the pitch, while a lone Silver Y sipped his teardrops away.

Netflix’s Dark Tourist and the trouble with ‘extreme’ travel TV

David Farrier’s series follows in the footsteps of Ross Kemp and Vice by making titillating television from war zones and disaster sites. It’s shallow and sordid

One of the most unpleasant rumours I can recall emerging from the Balkan wars of the 1990s was of a German agency who organised trips for tourists to “visit” the conflict and even participate. There’s nothing quite so appalling as that in David “Tickled” Farrier’s new Netflix series Dark Tourist, although it does venture into the grotesquely bizarre. He looks at the trend for Nuclear Tourism, for example, in which people flock to soak up the radiation left behind following the disaster in Fukushima, as well as the tourist industry that has built up around the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. He also visits locations in Africa and South America associated with death and destruction that some tourists find somehow attractive, a shameful attraction the makers of Dark Tourist assume is shared to a degree by the viewer.

Although there are strong hints of Louis Theroux in Farrier’s chin-scratching demeanour, overall the series is part of a recent trend for making titillating TV from the world’s troublespots. Its soundtrack and graphics fit the bill: pummelling, Wagnerian motifs knocking you back like Tequila slammers, bursts of brutal fast cuts. It feels a little sordid, as if the miseries of the world are mere fodder for some televisual equivalent of the thrills of extreme mountain biking. On the other hand, you feel a bit chastened in your armchair watching Farrier enduring privations such as a voodoo ritual or narco tours in Pablo Escobar’s old neighbourhood.

Dangerous liaisons: why syphilis and gonorrhoea have returned to haunt Britain

Clinic appointments fill up in minutes and babies are once again being born with syphilis – what is behind Britain’s sexual health crisis?

Tucked down a backstreet, Patrick French’s workplace is identified only by a generic blue NHS sign. Nobody would know why the men and women entering the building off Tottenham Court Road in central London were here. Even inside, it’s not obvious. With its blond wood floors and potted plants, all that distinguishes the Mortimer Market sexual health clinic from a dentist’s waiting room is the presence of enormous posters advertising Liquid Silk lubricant.

Such invisibility helps protect patients’ privacy in this most intimate field of medicine. But it also means a crisis can fly beneath the radar. When patients are waiting on A&E trolleys, we all hear about it. When they’re queueing out of the door to be tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), we don’t. “People say the NHS has been protected against cuts – well there’s one bit that hasn’t,” says French, a genitourinary medicine (GUM) consultant at central and north west London trust.

The woke sound of musicals: why Mamma Mia! isn't the first to rewrite its lyrics

Words to Abba’s When I Kissed the Teacher were rewritten for the latest film release – but it’s not the first time a musical has been adapted for modern tastes

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is being embraced this summer as the perfect film to warm the cockles of a news-weary audience. From the Greek sunshine to the nostalgic Abba soundtrack, and Cher’s camp swagger, everything about the film has been engineered to make the audience feel cosy.

But could the Abba tracks themselves have been tweaked to put us more at ease? The lyrics to Lily James and Celia Imrie’s ritzy rendition of When I Kissed the Teacher (recently described as “a pop homage to low level sexual harassment”) were changed for the film – prompting fears that even Abba have to be “woke-ified” for modern consumption. The gender of the teacher who kisses the student in the song has been switched from male to female and a key phrase altered. Abba’s Björn Ulvaeus says this isn’t a response to the predatory tales revealed by #MeToo, but simply a tactic to avoid a “horrible” key change. “She had to be a woman. Simple as that,” he has said.

The rise of the body neutrality movement: ‘If you’re fat, you don’t have to hate yourself’

Instead of emphasising the need to love how you look, concepts such as body neutrality, fat acceptance and body respect are allowing women to make peace with their bodies

When Stephanie Yeboah was 12 years old, she was put on a diet and began restricting herself to 300 calories a day. People told her she would be so pretty, if only she could lose weight. By her early 20s, a preoccupation with counting calories had led to a devastating pattern of disordered eating. She was bulimic, but, she says, she did not recognise it because her body shape hadn’t changed and society had made it clear: “Fat people don’t have eating disorders; if they did they wouldn’t be fat.”

It wasn’t until she discovered body positivity in 2014 that Yeboah found an alternative to self-loathing and depression. Body positivity first emerged in the US in the 60s to raise awareness of the barriers faced by fat people (and as a result, the word “fat” was reclaimed as a descriptor rather than insult). Advocates eschewed diets and weight-loss surgery and highlighted the need for human rights for bigger bodies.

Fluffed it! The truth about Build-A-Bear's day of mayhem

The global company was once lauded for being ahead of the curve, so what was behind the ‘pay-your-age’ misjudgment that left scores of its little customers brokenhearted?

Thursday 12 July should have been a red-letter day for thousands upon thousands of kids, and for their favourite shop, Build-A-Bear Workshop. The company had announced a pay-your-age promotion, so customers in the UK, US and Canada could come in to make their own teddies and pay just a fraction of the normal cost: instead of £52 for a top-of-the-range bear, a six-year-old would pay just £6. It sounded brilliant.

What Build-A-Bear hadn’t factored in was the devotion of its young customers, and the unending human appetite for getting something cheap. Its shops were overwhelmed with huge queues wanting to take advantage. Police had to be called to help control the crowds outside the Leeds branch. Scores of shops had to close early; thousands of people left without getting in. Even some of those who did left wildly disappointed: one parent told the BBC that she and her children queued for three and a half hours to get into the Derby branch, then spent another two hours waiting to get their bears stuffed: “When I look back I will probably think, ‘What have I done that for?’ – especially with what I will end up paying for parking,” she said. The next day’s headlines contained the words no executive wants to see describing their business: “chaos”, “carnage”, “fiasco”.

How to spot a ‘performative’ friend, from Taylor Swift to The Rock

From unnecessary Instagram hashtags to unflattering ‘happy birthday’ selfies - the telltale signs that it’s all about them

It was Selena Gomez’s 26th birthday on Sunday and Taylor Swift baked her a cake to celebrate, sharing a photo of it on Instagram. Baking someone a cake is a sweet gesture but – unless Swift is sending it to her –Gomez will never eat her birthday cake, because they are thousands of miles apart. So, in effect, Swift just wrote someone else’s name on a cake and stuck it on the internet – in what may be a textbook example of performative friendship.

This is a frightening time to be a woman who speaks truth to power | Chitra Ramaswamy

The likes of Laura Kuenssberg, Rose McGowan and Tarana Burke have faced extraordinary abuse, yet they refuse to be silenced. We must do more to celebrate them

‘It’s uglier out there now.” So says Laura Kuenssberg, the first woman to hold the position of BBC political editor and the only one to have required a bodyguard to report on a Labour conference. Kuenssberg was talking about social media, but she may as well have been referring to our openly sexist world.

Like any high-profile woman who dares to – what? Do the job for which she is unequally paid? – Kuenssberg has been plagued by online abuse. She has considered leaving social media. Meanwhile, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who has broken some of the biggest stories of the Trump administration, is “taking a break” from Twitter. “The viciousness, toxic partisan anger, intellectual dishonesty, motive-questioning and sexism are at all-time highs,” she explained.

Brexit broke parliament. Now, only the people can fix it | Vernon Bogdanor
With MPs divided we could be heading for a no-deal that only a minority want. A new prime minister or general election won’t solve this dilemma

The hung parliament elected in 2017 has turned into the fragmented parliament of 2018, as last week’s votes on the trade bill show only too well. There are two reasons for this. The first is that there is a gap between the aspirations of the people and those of parliament. The majority of MPs are remainers; most feel required to vote for something to which they are opposed, a situation without precedent in our long constitutional history. The sovereignty of the people is coming to trump the sovereignty of parliament.

Second, it is becoming clear that there is no sure majority for any of the various forms of Brexit on offer. This could lead to Britain crashing out of the European Union without a deal, an outcome hardly anyone wants, and which most believe would be disastrous.

This racist new law makes me ashamed to be Israeli | Daniel Barenboim
Israeli Arabs are being made second-class citizens. This form of apartheid violates the founding commitment to equality

I gave a speech at the Knesset, the Israeli parliament, in 2004 in which I spoke about the declaration of independence of the state of Israel. I called it “a source of inspiration to believe in ideals that transformed us from Jews to Israelis”.

I went on to say that this remarkable document had expressed the commitment that: “The state of Israel will devote itself to the development of this country for the benefit of all its people; it will be founded on the principles of freedom, justice and peace, guided by the visions of the prophets of Israel; it will grant full equal, social and political rights to all its citizens regardless of differences of religious faith, race or sex; it will ensure freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture.”

Trump’s tweet to Iran cannot bully the west away from making peace | Simon Jenkins

While the White House reduces diplomacy to belligerence, its withdrawal from the nuclear deal is a challenge to the non-American west

Related: Trump says Iran will 'suffer consequences' after speech by president Rouhani

Wow. Social media really is transforming the art of diplomacy. Donald Trump’s secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, has called the rulers of Iran a “mafia more than a government”. They are a bunch of “hypocritical holy men” who have devised “all kinds of crooked schemes to become some of the wealthiest men on Earth while their people suffer”. When Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, pleads for the mother of all peace instead of the “mother of all wars”, Trump retorts that if he ever says that again, he will see “consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before … Be cautious!” Children are told that words can never hurt you, but there must be limits.

Why I’d never do a TED talk (and it’s not just because they’re named after a man) | Julie Bindel
The rehearsed smugness of the presenters puts me off the content – which is all about making the simple sound profound

Picture this. A darkened auditorium, an attentive, cult-like audience staring ahead expectantly, hardly daring to breathe; a huge screen on which there is an image no one can decipher. And then, the person everyone has been waiting for strides confidently on to the spotlit stage, wearing a headset and carrying a PowerPoint remote, dressed immaculately and sporting a brand-new haircut. You can hear a pin drop as the presenter begins, “You think the world is round, but I am going to tell you to begin to believe it is actually square.”

Predictable, false and embarrassing; how I hate TED talks. And it’s not even because they’re named after a man. What I can’t abide is the way presenters pace around the stage, I hate the gravity with which they deliver their message, and being patronised by a smug, overconfident “thought leader” is pretty intolerable.

What liberals (still) get wrong about Trump's support

After each outrage, progressives believe supporters will drain away. On the contrary: he is giving them what they want

Liberals and progressives are forever predicting Donald Trump’s political demise. After each purported outrage – Charlottesville, separating children from their immigrant parents, now Helsinki – they confidently contend that this latest event will finally force Trump’s supporters to abandon him. Yet not only does this not happen, Trump’s support has actually risen by 6% since late 2017. How do they keep getting it so wrong?

Abuse of Team Sky will continue all the way to Paris, warns Brailsford
• Team principal condemns race organisers for not doing more
• ‘It just seems to be a French cultural thing,’ says Brailsford

Sir Dave Brailsford expects the cascade of vitriol directed at Team Sky to continue all the way to Paris and has condemned Tour de France organisers for not doing more to stop it.

In the past fortnight the four-times winner Chris Froome has been cuffed by one fan, spat at by another and had an unidentified substance thrown at him, while Geraint Thomas has been persistently booed when presented with his yellow jersey. However, Brailsford insisted such behaviour only makes Team Sky more determined to succeed.

Mesut Özil’s Germany saga is symptomatic of a world under strain | Richard Williams
Midfielder’s retirement from international football sadly illustrates that, in a polarising world, the ideas of multiculturalism are struggling to regain the upper hand

When a Radio 5 Live newsreader referred to “the English rider Geraint Thomas” in an item on the Tour de France this week, the response from those with Welsh blood in their veins ranged from a pained wince to a weary shrug. It was ignorant. It was annoying. But no one was going to war over it.

In other countries and other sports the question of national identity can provoke very different reactions. This week, for instance, Mesut Özil announced his retirement from international football over the response in Germany – and from the head of the DFB, the German football association, in particular – to a row that began when he posed for a photograph with the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in London in May.

Ryan Lochte banned 14 months for doping violation revealed on Instagram
  • Lochte faces lengthy ban for illegal IV use posted on Instagram
  • 12-time Olympic medalist will be sidelined through June 2019
  • Incident casts doubt on Lochte’s plans to swim in 2020 Games

Ryan Lochte, the second most decorated male Olympic swimmer of all time, has been banned 14 months for receiving an intravenous infusion without a therapeutic use exemption, the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) announced on Monday.

Usada said it became aware of the potential violation when the 33-year-old American star posted a since-deleted photo of himself receiving the injection on his social media accounts with the hashtag #ivdrip, adding that Lochte “fully cooperated” with the ensuing investigation.

Loris Karius has homework to do to stay as Liverpool’s goalkeeper
German can learn from his Everton counterpart Jordan Pickford if he is to improve and stay at Anfield

Maybe, just maybe, Loris Karius needs to stop seeing himself as an artist and start thinking like a scientist? Perhaps his faith in the powers of instinct could do with being underpinned with a few more specific details?

Liverpool’s goalkeeper has been having a rough time of things at work – or at least rough by the standards of anyone commanding a basic wage of around £25,000 a week – since his two glaring errors in the Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid in May.

More historic Italian clubs go bust ... while Juventus sign Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus agreed to pay Cristiano Ronaldo €500,000 a week in wages while Bari had their water cut off over a €6,000 bill

By Neil Morris for The Gentleman Ultra of the Sport Network

While Juventus and Real Madrid finessed the details of Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer, a distant funeral bell tolled for three historic Italian clubs – a scenario that accentuated the disparity between those at the top of Italian football and those a few rungs down the ladder. Ronaldo’s arrival has been hailed as a coup for the Italian game. Apparently he will raise the profile of Serie A to a level not seen since the 1990s and everyone will reap the benefits. But few fans outside Turin subscribe to this “trickle-down” theory.

The news that Bari and Cesena of Serie B, as well as AC Reggiana of Serie C, have all been denied licences for the upcoming season due to financial issues will hardly come as a surprise to anyone who follows Italian football. Since Fiorentina went bankrupt in 2002, 153 Italian clubs have refounded, merged with other clubs or disappeared altogether. Three clubs have dropped from Serie B to Serie D this summer due to financial problems even though none of them finished in the relegation zone.

The Lamest Showmen: why can’t male actors sing?

As the new Mamma Mia! hits cinemas, we explore why male actors hit the bum notes in modern movie musicals

There are many reasons why the first Mamma Mia! movie was such a smash hit, but we can all agree Pierce Brosnan’s singing was not one of them. He sounded like a labrador trapped under a blanket. Undeterred, judging by a clip of Hugh Skinner singing Waterloo in a style best described as “posh geography teacher whose necktie is too tight”, forthcoming sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again looks set to be continue this tradition of masculine musical ineptitude.

The Mamma Mia! enterprise hinges on a rarely acknowledged truth of modern movies: when it comes to actors singing, women are better at it. Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried and Lily James can hold a tune pretty well. It was a similar case with the Pitch Perfect movies. They hired Anna Kendrick and Hailee Steinfeld, both of whom have had bona fide hit songs. In earlier times, when musicals were a Hollywood conveyor belt, singing ability was a route to success, and performers would have paid their dues on stage or in vaudeville. However, today’s movie musicals must either cast genuine singers with limited acting ability, or genuine actors with limited singing ability. In the latter department, it is the men who come off worst.

David Bowie's first demo track discovered in old bread basket

Bowie, 16, was singing I Never Dreamed on tape, which was turned down by music firm

Long before Aladdin Sane or Ziggy Stardust, a skinny 16-year-old with ambitions to be a saxophonist agreed to do lead vocals on a demo track, in a small studio in south London. Now the only known recording of the resulting session, with David Bowie singing I Never Dreamed with his first band, The Konrads, has resurfaced in an old bread basket, and is expected to fetch £10,000 at auction.

The record company evidently failed to recognise the potential of the voice that would become one of the most famous of the 20th century. The Konrads did not win the longed-for audition with Decca, although the record company did give them a trial later that year – and turned them down – soon before Bowie left the band citing artistic differences.

Now that's what I call a tracklist: how the compilation's 100th edition sells its history short

Now That’s What I Call Music’s 100th edition includes a greatest hits disc that favours the arena titans – overlooking the pleasure of rediscovering the one-hit wonders and sub-genres buried in these pop time capsules

Released on 20 July, the 100th edition of Now That’s What I Call Music shifts from its regular programming: instead of summarising the last quarter in pop, the second disc condenses 35 years of Now into 80 minutes. It uses the biggest names – UB40, Phil Collins, Wet Wet Wet, Kylie, the Justins (Timberlake and Bieber), Coldplay – to tell its story, which rather misses the point. Now compilations are tamper-proof time capsules, where the most pleasure is found in one-hit wonders and sub-genres that were genuinely – but only briefly – popular. They are proof that history isn’t always written by the winners.

Here is how it could have looked. (Listen along below.)

'We wanted to inject some drama': PlayStation chief explains Sony's strange E3

At this year’s expo, the games giant ditched flashy promotional press conferences for elaborate film sets. PlayStation’s EU boss Simon Rutter believes the approach will pay dividends

Last month’s E3 video game expo was a strange one for PlayStation. Traditionally, video games’ biggest companies use the annual Los Angeles conference as an opportunity to bombard attendees and fans watching online with new games. For rival consoles Xbox and PlayStation, ostentatious showcase press events are especially important and competitive: once a customer chooses between the two, they are likely to play on that console for years to come.

Microsoft showed 50 games at its Xbox press conference at E3 2018, on a big stage with lots of fancy lighting. By contrast, Sony constructed several elaborate sets on an LA film lot, each themed around a different forthcoming PlayStation 4 games: The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man and Death Stranding. Fans already knew about all of these, but they were shown in more detail over 10 or 15 minutes of footage, alongside a smattering of smaller new announcements and some unexpected live music performances.

Dr Seuss's Lorax 'inspired by orange Kenyan monkeys'

Moustachioed animals’ relationship with whistling thorn acacia trees resembles that of the Lorax with truffulas, researchers say

“I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees,” says the eponymous hairy hero of Dr Seuss’s children’s book after he climbs out of the stump of a truffula tree. An irate orange figure with a bristling moustache, the Lorax is an environmental activist who wastes no time in berating the axe-wielding Once-ler, a shady money-grabbing interloper who lays waste to the environment to produce peculiar knitted outfits called thneeds.

Now researchers say the book may have been inspired by the things Seuss saw on a trip to Kenya, and that the bristly character may have been based on the orange moustachioed patas monkeys indigenous to the area.

Rachel Roddy’s recipe for tomato risotto

A good glug of red vermouth brings sharp sweetness to this simple, timeless classic

Aside from including one of the best descriptions of eating an orange I’ve read, A Time in Rome by the Irish writer Elizabeth Bowen is an evocative account of a city, its architecture, its atmosphere, its daily rhythms. Bowen finds the perfect words for “the utter blank” in the middle of the Roman day, “announced by the clanging down of black iron shutters, which before owners go off to lunch they stoop to lock”. Almost 60 years have passed since she wrote those lines, yet they still ring true, especially during the white-hot days of summer in Piazza Testaccio, when the ceremonious yanking down of shop shutters really does feel like the city is shutting its eyes for a nap.

Depending on the shop and the heat, shutters and serrande are pulled back up between 4pm and 5.30pm and, gradually, people start returning to the piazza. Kids who have been cooped up in darkened rooms since lunchtime are like springs uncoiling, scooting, kicking balls or each other, while everyone else clusters around the two dozen benches and fixed iron tables that fringe the vast square. From utter blank to a hive of Roman life. Then, at about 6.30pm, when the sun is at a comfortable angle and the summery air cooler at the edges, there are the first sightings of luminous drinks.

Seven ways to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder

PTSD can be caused by a range of experiences, from a car crash to rape to surviving a terrorist attack. But how do you know if you have it and what can you do?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can develop after being involved in, or witnessing, traumatic events. A wide range of experiences can cause it, from being in a car crash, a traumatic childbirth, losing someone close to you in upsetting circumstances, being raped or assaulted, to surviving a terrorist attack or being in a war. Rachel Boyd, of the mental health charity Mind, says: “If you experience trauma, it’s natural that it has an impact on your life.” But not everyone will develop PTSD. However, she says, if you are affected for a long period or have intense symptoms – such as anxiety, reliving the event or nightmares – you could have PTSD. And it can take years for symptoms to emerge.

I'm a bisexual woman who has met a lovely man – but I can’t have penetrative sex

This has been a problem for years and now it’s stopping me from getting close to my new partner

I am a 35-year-old bisexual woman who has never had penetrative sex with a man. Years ago I attempted it, but we gave up when it didn’t work. I presumed it was because I wasn’t relaxed enough, but since then I have tried penetration with vibrators when fully relaxed and lubricated and they won’t go in, and it is incredibly painful. I’ve recently met a lovely man with whom I’d like to be intimate, but I have avoided getting too close because of this.

There might be a physiological or anatomical reason for this, so it is essential that you consult a doctor. It is possible that you may need a procedure that would remove a thick hymen or correct whatever physical feature may be preventing penetration.

California Highway 1 reopens after flood and mud slide repair work

Scenic US west-coast route open again following a 14-month, $54m project to fix natural disaster damage that stranded Big Sur community

One of the world’s most famous road trips is back in business after back-to-back natural disasters made the “dream drive” along California Highway 1, between San Francisco and Los Angeles, impossible for more than a year. The classic US west-coast route, which traces some of the state’s most dramatic scenery, had been off-limits since February 2017.

That month, unprecedented heavy rains sank the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge, around 150 miles south of San Francisco, leaving an impassable gap in the two-lane highway. Just three months later, a massive landslide 35 miles south of the downed bridge, at Mud Creek, swept another chunk of the road into the sea.

Toronto shooting leaves three dead and 13 injured

Police have yet to identify the gunman, who is among the dead, or to suggest a motive for the shooting

Three people – including the suspected gunman – have died and 13 others have been injured after a lone gunman opened fire along a lively avenue in the Canadian city of Toronto, seemingly shooting at random at pedestrians and into crowded restaurants.

Police said an 18-year old woman and a 10-year-old girl, both of them from the Toronto area, were killed in the attack. Another 13 people, ranging in age from 10 to 59 years, remain in hospital, with injuries ranging from minor to serious.

'That didn't go as planned': Fox News interviews anti-Ice Democrat in mix-up

Kirkpatrick had been booed at a congressional primary in Arizona the previous day for speaking in support of Ice. The conservative, pro-Trump news network has a long history of interviewing Democrats who share parts of their agenda to give the impression of bipartisanship.

As evidence accumulates of the extraordinary lengths the Kremlin is willing to go to in order to thwart Nato’s expansion in the Balkans, the Greek foreign minister, Nikos Kotzias, used two interviews at the weekend to publicly rebuke Russia. “Russia must realise that it cannot disrespect the national interests of another state because it feels it is stronger,” Kotzias told the Syntakton newspaper.

‘I was tired of covering my face to hide from the mafia’: Italian MP Piera Aiello

Earlier this year, Piera Aiello became an Italian MP after campaigning with a veil over her face. Having now revealed her identity, she tells how she was forced to marry into the mafia

Sipping a cappuccino in a cafe on Sicily’s Palermo docks, a woman is recalling a dramatic exchange with her daughter. A year ago, she explains, the 16-year-old had gone up to the attic of their home and opened a big dusty box that lay in the corner. Her parents had always forbidden her from entering the attic, or opening the box, but now the girl was determined to disobey them. Inside were about 10 packages, each individually wrapped. They were paintings: landscapes, the sea, olive groves, the deep south. All were signed with the same name: Piera Aiello.

Her mother entered the attic. “I painted them,” she said. “They’re beautiful,” her daughter replied. “But Mamma, if these paintings are yours, why are they signed by a different name? Who is Piera Aiello?”

Belgian nude beach blocked on fears sexual activity could spook wildlife

Wildlife agency says ‘subsidiary activities’ in the dunes would scare off rare lark

The Belgian Naturism Federation has come to the defence of its burgeoning membership after the Flemish wildlife agency blocked an application for a second nudist beach in the country on the grounds that bathers’ “subsidiary activities” would pose a threat to a rare bird.

Attempts to gain designated naturist status for a quiet spot near Westende, about 12 miles south of the popular seaside resort of Ostende, hit a snag after objections were raised that sexual activity in the dunes would scare off the locally treasured crested lark, or Galerida cristata.

Hyperreal paintings of fruit - in pictures

For Dennis Wojtkiewicz, who creates hyper-real paintings of cross-sectioned fruit, finding his niche was a slog, until he set about carving up lemons. “The sun was out and the light happened to pass through the flesh,” he says. “It was a revelation. The form came to life.”

To capture the moment, he turned to his idols for influence: “Bonnard for his use of colour as energy, Vermeer for his use of light and the sense of timelessness in his paintings and Jan van Eyck for his exquisite craft.” Beyond the pictures themselves, in which grapefruits resemble luminous stained-glass windows, Wojtkiewicz plots themes of spirituality, sexuality and reproduction. Then again, as he is quick to add: “To some, a watermelon is just a watermelon.”
