Trump's sexual harassment accusers hope president goes way of Weinstein

Three of the women who accused Trump of making unwanted sexual advances feel the culture may finally change but worry about men’s relative silence

As the aftershocks from Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct spread to other powerful men in Hollywood and media, a group of women for whom the allegations are “gross but familiar” are wondering if the fallout will reach an even more powerful man – the one in the White House.

During the course of his presidential campaign, more than 10 women came forward with accusations that Donald Trump had touched or kissed them without consent – something he bragged about on the infamous 2005 Access Hollywood tape when he said stars like him could “grab them by the pussy”.

How the Catalan crisis could send shockwaves across Europe

Mariano Rajoy has played a tough hand well, but Carles Puigdemont could yet emerge a champion of European renewal

The battle for Catalonia just got personal. Until now the main protagonists, Carles Puigdemont, the Catalan president, and Mariano Rajoy, Spain’s prime minister, have avoided a head-on clash. All that changed at the weekend after the Madrid government decided to impose direct rule. Within minutes, insults were flying, with the opposing sides accusing each other of totalitarianism and rebellion.

Puigdemont had deliberately provoked the secession crisis, Rajoy claimed. The problem was, he lacked the stature to handle such a delicate situation. “This would probably never have happened if a different person with similar ideas had been in charge,” Rajoy said. In vowing to sack the Catalan leader, he noticeably declined to rule out charging him with sedition and locking him up.

Pablo Neruda: experts say official cause of death 'does not reflect reality'

Panel of 16 experts says that when the Nobel prize-winning poet died in 1973, there was no indication of the cancer that was supposed to have killed him

A team of international scientists say they are “100% convinced” that Chile’s celebrated Nobel prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda did not die from prostate cancer, his official cause of death.

Neruda died aged 69 at the Santa María Clinic in Santiago, on 23 September 1973 – 12 days after Augusto Pinochet’s military coup toppled the democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende. In 2013, Chilean judge Mario Carroza ordered the exhumation of Neruda’s remains after his chauffeur, Manuel Araya, told the Mexican magazine Proceso that the poet had called him in desperation from the hospital to say that he had been injected in the stomach while he was asleep.

An octopus that armours itself with shells and rocks, fish that use sign language and tools and dazzling cuttlefish that appear to hypnotise their prey are among the new spectacles uncovered by the series, which starts later this week.

'Fear is a fact of life': the rooftop view of Jerusalem

For its Season of Culture, the ancient capital has thrown open its rooftops to encourage residents to see beyond their blinkered boundaries. But the reality is a city where the divides are growing deeper

The rooftops of Jerusalem can be deceptive. From up here, the domes and towers of the hundreds of churches, mosques and synagogues glimmer on the skyline in what seems like peaceful coexistence; the neighbourhoods below come together in a unified sprawl.

But down below, it is a city defined by barriers. They may not be as tangible as the towering security wall that divides Israel and the Palestinian territories a few miles east, but they are just as divisive and inviolable. Living side by side in Jerusalem are communities who exist with no interaction with one another – kept apart by fear, nationalism and religion.

Waiting for the tide to turn: Kiribati's fight for survival

The 33 islands of Kiribati, a remote and low-lying nation in the Pacific Ocean, are under threat from climate change. But the islanders have not given up hope

Kiribati is one of the most isolated countries in the world. As you fly in to the main island of South Tarawa, located less than 100 kms from the equator, a precariously thin strip of sand and green materialises out of the ocean.

On one side, a narrow reef offers some protection to the inhabitants and their land – at low tide, at least. On the other side, a shallow lagoon reaches kilometres out to sea. The 33 islands of Kiribati – pronounced “Kiribass” – are extremely shallow; the highest point is just two metres above sea level. Looking out of the aeroplane window, there is no depth to the scene – sea dissolves seamlessly into sky, a paint palette of every blue

Even as my fingers close triumphantly around the coveted malted milk, the clip-clip of claws in the hall announces my failure. A small furry beast trots into my line of vision and arranges itself patiently by my feet. When eventually, biscuit disposed of, I dare to turn my head to meet its burning eyes, the dog cocks his head winsomely to one side, and, on cue, my heart melts. Once again, he’s played me like a fiddle, and without even opening his mouth.

Dealing with such blatant emotional manipulation on a daily basis, I was unsurprised by the news that dogs use their facial expressions to interact with the human world. A study recently published in the journal Scientific Reports found that dogs move their faces far more when humans are looking at them than otherwise, suggesting that those expressions are attempts to communicate with us – though the scientists involved were keen to emphasise that they don’t know exactly what the dogs are trying to say.

The ‘superantibiotics’ that could save us from bacteria apocalypse
With the rise of bugs that are resistant to virtually everything medical science can throw at them, scientists are now hoping to re-engineer existing antibiotics to make them thousands of times more powerful

Warnings about an impending post-antibiotic apocalypse have, over the last five years, grown increasingly stark, with estimates placing the annual number of mortalities from antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections at 700,000 worldwide, a number that could rise to 10m in the next three decades.

The need for new classes of antibiotics has repeatedly been emphasised, with researchers turning to some of the most extreme environments on Earth in the hunt for new molecules. But finding broad-spectrum antibiotics that work against all classes of bacteria is challenging – and even if we discover new narrow-spectrum ones that work against particular strains, the likelihood of them becoming clinically available is slim. The economic realities of drug development mean that narrow-spectrum antibiotics aren’t cost-effective for pharmaceutical companies to produce.

Into the void: the fast life and shocking death of a wingsuit-flying superstar

Alexander Polli was an adrenaline junkie, a daredevil who could fly through holes in rockfaces at 150mph. Our writer tells the extraordinary story of Base, a new film starring Polli that had to be delayed when he was killed by the sport he loved

One week after his wingsuit-flying partner died, Carlos Briceño Schutte launched himself into the void holding an inflatable pig. The drop from the Aiguille du Midi, the 3,842m peak that towers over the French alpine town of Chamonix, had been one of Alexander Polli’s favourites. It was only right, says Schutte, to fly it in remembrance – accompanied by his friend’s spirit animal. “He was sometimes a little bit fat, not doing much exercise,” says Schutte. “I was like, ‘You’re not an eagle, bro. You’re a pig.’”

Polli, who was just 31 when he died last year, was the Jimi Hendrix of wingsuit-flying, the supremely dangerous sport whose elite are revered like rock stars, thanks to the eye-watering feats they perform. Polli, like Schutte, had taught himself by trial and error to use the nylon-webbed suits that allow base-jumpers to ascend to the next terrifying level. Launching themselves from peaks and helicopters, they cut horizontally through the air at speeds that can exceed 200mph, “proximity-flying” just inches from rockfaces and buildings. There is little room for error on such high-octane flights – and none whatsoever on the 2013 stunt with which Polli made his name: threading the needle of a 25ft hole in a rockface in Spain’s Montserrat mountains, an accomplishment unusually extreme even by wingsuit standards.

What comes in 66 sizes and vegan latex? The new generation of condoms
Too big, too small or not enough feeling – it all matters when it comes to prophylactics. But will a new wave of innovation make us happier in bed?

In the middle of a long and stressful day in her job in finance, Farah Kabir nipped out of the office in her lunch break and ran to the local Boots to pick up some condoms. She grabbed the first ones she saw, rushed to the till and, just before handing the lurid box of Durex over to the cashier, locked eyes with the person queueing behind her. It was her boss.

Understandably mortified, she shared her horror story with her old schoolfriend, Sarah Welsh. A doctor specialising in gynaecology and sexual health, Welsh tells me that Kabir’s experience got her thinking. “Of course it’s natural to feel embarrassed, but I’ve seen the rise in difficult-to-treat sexually transmitted infections, and condoms are the only safe, non-hormonal method of contraception that is effective in protecting against them. Yet there’s still this strange taboo around women being able to buy them. That’s when we got really excited about what we could do to make a difference.”

Baseball no longer a supergiant but it is still the most American of sports

The World Series does not consume the US as it once did. But baseball still offers a window on the best and the worst of America

Baseball has long seen itself as America’s game, a game as great-hearted, humble and fundamentally decent as America itself. And for the better part of the 20th-century, at least in terms of the game’s popularity, baseball was indeed America’s game, and its biggest stars were famous in a way that athletes simply aren’t famous anymore. Fans in the 1920s traveled hundreds of miles just to see Babe Ruth, and the New York Daily News hired a journalist to write about Ruth, and only Ruth, 365 days a year. The most famous players of later eras – like Ruth, they tended to be Yankees – became not just athletic icons but national figures of myth. That they tended to be human in all the familiar unflattering ways – Joe DiMaggio was an icy, exploitive jerk; Mickey Mantle a self-destructive alcoholic for much of his life – was never allowed to jeopardize the legend. In an era before television ratings, the World Series was not just the nation’s most popular sporting event, but something like a national holiday.

This hasn’t been the case for some time, and this year’s World Series – which starts on Tuesday and features one of the country’s most famous teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers, against the Houston Astros – is unlikely to change matters. The NFL, in all its Trump-ian shamelessness, has been the most popular league in the United States for more than a decade. The NBA, which has the youngest and most diverse fanbase of the major US sports leagues – it has the highest TV viewership among African Americans and the second-highest among Hispanics – seems to have a more credible claim on the future.

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

Arsène Wenger must continue with golden front trio; Christopher Schindler was a great buy for Huddersfield; Manchester City defence is as key as their attack

This was the first time Arsène Wenger had started Mesut Özil, Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sánchez in his XI. Yet until Everton went down to 10 men Arsenal were hardly a goal machine, having struggled to a 2-1 lead when Idrissa Gueye was sent off. At this point Özil was on the scoresheet, and by the final whistle Lacazette and Sánchez had also registered. Wenger, of course, cannot rely on the opposition having a man getting his marching orders every game. But even before this happened there was cause for optimism: Sánchez created Özil’s strike while Lacazette, on occasion, provide a focal point for the Chilean and German. Everton are in freefall so a better test of how effective this trio can be will come when Arsenal visit Manchester City on 5 November. Wenger surely must trust them to start or any chance of beating City in their own backyard will be seriously reduced. Jamie Jackson

'London's team' are finally threatening to become an NFL force

The Jacksonville Jaguars appear to be getting their act together after years of ineptitude. It should play well in the league’s push in Europe

If the Jacksonville Jaguars are indeed London’s NFL franchise then how strange is it for the capital to possibly have an NFL playoff team?

After years of failed attempts to win more than five games in a season, the Jags – long tipped for a move from Florida to the UK – sit at 4-3, tied for first place in the AFC South and are a legitimate threat to be playing in the post-season. And who would have figured this?

Lewis Hamilton’s dominance should lead to F1 endgame in Mexico | Giles Richards
The Briton was peerless throughout the weekend in Texas and his wait to become Britain’s most successful driver has surely been delayed only one week

Ultimately then, after opening with a pre-race ceremony of razzmatazz and showbiz theatrics, the US Grand Prix was not to be the stage on which Lewis Hamilton delivered the dramatic finale of claiming his fourth Formula One world championship. The win he had looked like delivering all weekend was duly secured but Sebastian Vettel taking second place has ensured their title fight will go to the next round in Mexico.

Yet Hamilton has as good as claimed the crown with a drive of verve, composure and dominance that he has delivered so often this season. Not content to settle for second as he could have done after he had lost a place to Vettel off the grid, he attacked again for the lead, took it and held it.

Rugby union: talking points from the weekend’s European action

Nathan Hughes mars a fine display with a swinging arm, Morgan Parra’s injury causes head injury assessment concerns and Jonny May lifts Leicester to the top

Nathan Hughes was voted man of the match for Wasps and rightly so for a fine showing, full of aggressive running. Eddie Jones was in attendance to see his performance and the national No8 jersey is in effect his, considering Billy Vunipola’s long-term injury. Both – along with Joe Marler whose yellow card may well have been red – may have an uncomfortable wait for the citing commissioner’s report however, following a swinging arm to the head of Marcus Smith. It was an ugly moment and one that could mean Hughes faces further repercussions. It would be disruptive considering how Hughes lit the touch paper for an emphatic victory that reignites Wasps’ European campaign, and possibly their season. Sunday evening matches do not make for the greatest of atmospheres but on the back of a five-match losing streak they will not care. Their double-header with La Rochelle is now set up nicely and how refreshing to see newcomers to a competition, that has been won just three teams for the past seven seasons, making such a statement.

Verstappen says rulemakers 'killing the sport' after 'stupid' penalty
  • Verstappen lost podium place after five-second penalty for going off track
  • Three-time world champion Lauda said penalty the ‘worst I’ve ever seen’

Max Verstappen has accused Formula One’s rulemakers of “killing the sport” and called on fans to boycott next year’s United States grand prix after he was stripped of the final spot on the podium.

Verstappen, who started 16th following an engine penalty, appeared to have completed a remarkable comeback by passing Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen on the final lap. But the Red Bull driver was handed a five-second time penalty after he was adjudged to have gone off the track when he made his move on the Finn in a thrilling conclusion to Sunday’s race.

David Villa to Diego Valeri: the men who will decide the MLS playoffs

The teams are decided for the post-season. But who will have the biggest say on the destination of this season’s MLS Cup?

Josef Martinez (Atlanta United) Nothing in Major League Soccer is as thrilling as an Atlanta United game at their new Mercedes Benz Stadium home. Tata Martino’s men have scored more goals than any other side in becoming the first expansion team to make the play-offs in their debut season since the 2009 Seattle Sounders. Much of that attacking success has been down to Josef Martinez.

The Colombian is United’s master of chaos, scoring 18 goals in just 16 starts. If Atlanta are to make a play-off run, keeping Martinez firing will prove critical. Of course, without the supply line of Miguel Almiron, who is currently struggling with injury, Martinez will find things more difficult, but the 24-year-old is precisely the sort of instinctive finisher you want in a knockout format.

On day one of a defamation trial against Fairfax Media, Gayle said the incident reported on never happened and was false. Gayle said the story had travelled all over the cricketing world.

Patriots and Tom Brady breeze past Falcons in Super Bowl rematch
  • New England beat Atlanta 23-7 on foggy night at Gillette Stadium
  • Patriots defense looks to be clicking after poor start to season

Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes and the New England Patriots toyed with the Atlanta Falcons 23-7 in a fog-filled Super Bowl rematch on Sunday night that wasn’t particularly super.

New England scored the final 31 points to win the NFL championship in February. Placards and shirts reading 28-3 were ever-present in and around Gillette Stadium as the Patriots (5-2) scored the first 23 points in this prime-time mismatch. The Falcons (3-3), who led New England by that 25-point margin in the third quarter of the Super Bowl before folding, were outplayed throughout this time.

Unknown local wins Venice marathon after favourites take wrong turn

Eyob Faniel wins Venice marathon after bizarre incident in which leading runners followed a motorcycle off course

Italian Eyob Faniel won the Venice marathon on Sunday after a bizarre incident in which the leading six runners took a wrong turn.

The six leaders covered several hundred metres before being made aware of the error and turning back. They lost about two minutes.

Football transfer rumours: Carlos Soler to Manchester United?

Today’s tell-all is ahead of the curve

With one-time West Ham flop Simone Zaza banging in goals for fun, Valencia’s resurgence is one of the more interesting football talking points in Spain this season. Managed by Marcelino García Toral, Los Che are unbeaten, sit second in La Liga and last night won their fifth consecutive match with a 4-0 thrashing of Sevilla. Small wonder, then, that their footballers are attracting attention from elsewhere. Central midfielder Carlos Soler is one such player and reports over the weekend suggest that Manchester United have opened talks with Valencia over a £30m deal for the Spain Under-21 international.

Despite only making his Valencia debut last December, Soler has quickly established himself as a first team regular having come through the club’s youth system and is already being touted as a future Spain superstar. Though he has a £75m buy-out clause in his contract, he will almost certainly go for less, with Valencia being strapped for cash and likely to let him go for less than half that amount.

Ronald Koeman’s lack of vision clear from Everton’s fall to disjointed Arsenal | Jamie Jackson
Both teams lurched from one disjointed moment to the next at Goodison Park and Everton’s 5-2 defeat will damage the Dutchman’s long-term job prospects

This curiosity of a contest said everything about these two teams’ current travails. It pitted one in serious crisis – Everton – against one always seemingly near to the next – Arsenal. An odd sense of elite professionals muddling through prevailed until Idrissa Gueye was sent off on 68 minutes and the Gunners pulled away.

Before then Everton and Arsenal had each suffered from an absence of stability and clearness of vision. Instead the players lurched from one disjointed moment to the next. The Gunners began like the proverbial train that suggested a seventh defeat in 11 matches would be Everton’s fate. Then they did an “Arsenal” by allowing their confidence-low opposition to take the lead, via a fine Wayne Rooney strike.

Wallabies no longer just believe they can beat the All Blacks – they know it | Bret Harris

Australia’s first win against their trans-Tasman rivals in two years was an indicator of how far they have come in just a few months

It was perhaps appropriate the Wallabies upset the All Blacks at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, the very arena where Australian boxer Jeff Horn stunned Manny Pacquiao in July. The Wallabies and Horn both defeated world champions against the odds, but the comparisons do not end there.

The much-maligned Australian rugby team and the Brisbane school teacher believed in themselves when no one else gave them a chance. And they achieved victory with a performance that was built on spirit and heart as much, if not more, than talent.

Harry Kane double leads Tottenham Hotspur to emphatic win over Liverpool

At times in this intriguing test of Premier League aspirations it was hard to work out which was the more remarkable thing – Tottenham’s vivacious, springing attacks or Liverpool’s dozy, fluffy underbelly. Both aspects were in sharp focus as Mauricio Pochettino’s team marauded through what passed for the defensive efforts of the visitors. Diego Maradona was in attendance – interviewed as part of the half-time entertainment thanks to his trusty translator Ossie Ardiles – and even at the portly age of 56 the old master might have fancied a goal or two himself.

As it was the Tottenham crowd made merry thanks to a couple from their marksman of the moment Harry Kane, plus strikes from Son Heung-min and Dele Alli. It enabled Spurs to end a sequence of 10 games without beating Liverpool, and in fine style.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says anthem protests are damaging the NFL
  • Dallas owner says he has heard from concerned sponsors
  • Jones has threatened to bench players who kneel during anthem

The Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who this month said he would bench any of his players who “disrespect the flag” during the national anthem, says that the protest movement is damaging the NFL.

This season dozens of NFL players have knelt during the anthem to highlight racial injustice in the United States. The movement has split the nation, with many perceiving it as disrespectful to military veterans. The NFL’s television ratings are also down, although it is not clear whether this is directly linked to the protests, as TV sports audiences have fallen across America.

• 41-year-old wins last six frames for 29th ranking title

Ronnie O’Sullivan blew away Kyren Wilson 9-2 to land the English Open title in Barnsley. He sealed victory with breaks of 127 and 132 in the final two frames that helped him rack up his 29th ranking title.

The 41-year-old, who had a pot success rate of 98%, won the last six frames to turn a 3-2 lead into a runaway victory. He finished the match with four centuries as well as breaks of 96, 87 and 77.

Don Armand’s double inspires epic Exeter victory in Montpellier
• Montpellier 24-27 Exeter
• Flanker’s two tries boost hopes of England call-up

Montpellier had a formidable home record and an average score in front of their own fans this season of 45-14 but, while visiting teams in the Top 14 reach a point when they accept defeat, Exeter do not care to remind themselves of the word’s meaning and after conquering England they are on the march in Europe.

There was a moment in the second half on Sunday when, after Montpellier’s burly Fiji wing Nemani Nadolo scored the second of his tries against the club he played four matches for in 2011, Exeter were up against it. At a ground where the name of the Top 14 club’s owner, Mohed Altrad, is plastered everywhere, a monument to a league where money shouts, the less expensively assembled cast of Chiefs were bound by more traditional virtues of graft and togetherness.

Toxic masculinity is everywhere. It’s up to us men to fix this | Jordan Stephens
I admit I’ve abused my power in the past. Only by confronting our privilege and opening up our emotions will we live a more positive life

• Jordan Stephens is one half of hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks

The past two weeks have reminded us of the extent to which women suffer at the hands of the patriarchy. As women share their stories and many nod along, what about us men?

Any man who has read a woman’s account of harassment or assault and thought “that doesn’t apply to me”: what you’re experiencing in that moment is the exact privilege, power and entitlement that women are finding space to battle against. We have subconsciously benefitted since we were born from patriarchal privilege – in many ways it’s invisible to us. I’ve been outspoken in my support for women’s rights, but I’m not afraid to admit that I’ve fallen foul of the patriarchy’s malicious hardwiring. But in confronting it, rather than continuing to abuse my power, I’ve found more inner peace, understanding, love and truth then I ever could have done had I continued as I was.

Owning a car will soon be a thing of the past | John Harris
The idea that we will surrender our prized motors can look far-fetched. But as cities clamp down on vehicle use, technology is putting a utopian vision in reach

If ours is an age in which no end of institutions and conventions are being disrupted, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the most basic features of everyday life seems under serious threat. If you are fortunate enough to live in a house with a drive, look outside and you will probably see it: that four-wheeled metal box, which may well be equipped with every technological innovation imaginable, but now shows distinct signs of obsolescence.

How many dead Somalis does it take for us to care? | Nadifa Mohamed

Last weekend’s truck bombing in Mogadishu took 358 lives. London, it seems, couldn’t even be bothered to lower a flag

For over a week now, since the shocking attack that killed hundreds of people in Mogadishu, I’ve been seeking to raise money for the only free ambulance service in the Somali capital. But as the days have gone I’ve noticed just how muted the public and official response has been to what – with 358 dead, 56 missing and 228 injured – must count among the world’s worst terror atrocities.

As #MeToo takes off, don’t let the right define misogyny | Zoe Williams

After Weinstein, calling out sexism has gone mainstream. But as the Clive Lewis affair shows, this throws up new ethical dilemmas for feminists on the left

The unmasking of Harvey Weinstein was like the breaching of a dam, against which decades of abuse, outrage, injustice, rumour, shameful complicity of employees, and unwarranted shame from victims had built. The awesome power of its bursting has already completely changed the territory, obliterating not just Weinstein’s nefarious power but all the assumptions and understandings by which a woman’s discretion was ensured.

Spain needs responsible politicians. Instead, they are stoking insurrection | Victor Lapuente Giné
Compromise and careful negotiation can ease the Catalan crisis. Yet both sides in the debate are sticking doggedly, and dangerously, to their moral certitude

The Guardian view on the fall of Raqqa: as Isis loses, Iran wins | Editorial
A swirling reorientation of alliances and enmities is under way in Syria and Iraq. The region is suffering a devastation that bears comparison with the thirty years’ war

Raqqa, self-styled capital of the self-styled Islamic State’s self-styled caliphate in eastern Syria, fell to Kurdish and Sunni Arab forces last week. The event was an indisputable success for the US-led anti-Isis international coalition. For the city’s inhabitants, it meant the end of a terrifying three years under the rule of a nihilistic cult. Isis’s rule in Raqqa made a global statement, showcasing its atrocities and its ideology: there were beheadings in a sports stadium, gay men thrown off rooftops, women reduced to slavery, and children indoctrinated to become suicide bombers. That the insurgent group has now been kicked out is a piece of good news for the Middle East and beyond.

It is much too soon to claim that Isis has been beaten for good. It still holds pockets of territory across the Syria-Iraq border. Nor is Sunni disenfranchisement – a key recruiting sergeant for Isis – likely to disappear if the Syrian dictator, Bashar al-Assad, is allowed to continue to persecute his people. Donald Trump’s assertion on Saturday that the fall of Raqqa heralded a political transition for Syria is both cynical and hollow. There is no sign whatever of such a transition in Damascus.

Concerned about 'Identity extremists?' There's one in the White House | Steven W Thrasher

The FBI claims to be worried about ‘premeditated, retaliatory lethal violence’ from protest groups. What about the danger posed by the president?

Right now in the United States, there is the threat (and actuality) of racial identity extremism leading to extreme violence. But it is not coming from the so-called “black identity extremists”, an absurd made-up term Trump’s FBI has created to whip up hysteria about black people.

The FBI claims to be worried that “Black Identity Extremist (BIE) perceptions of police brutality against African Americans spurred an increase in premeditated, retaliatory lethal violence against law enforcement and will very likely serve as justification for such violence.” This is just hyperbolic speculation from the US government meant to undermine the movement – just as the FBI tried to undermine Martin Luther King and the Black Panthers decades ago.

Post-hurricane cleanup work could kill more workers than storms themselves

The two hurricanes that battered Texas and Florida left 200 people dead but neglect of health and safety among mainly day laborers could exact a great toll

More workers could die from the long-term effects of cleaning up after hurricanes Harvey and Irma than were killed by the storms, according to a nationwide network of workplace health and safety groups.

The mainland US death toll for the two hurricanes, which battered Texas and Florida in August and September, now stands at approximately 200 people. But according to Jessica Martinez, executive director of National Council of Occupation Safety and Health (Cosh), a nationwide network of workplace health and safety groups, a greater number of people will die cleaning up in their wake “if more resources aren’t put into health and safety training from post-cleanup”.

Élysée puddle: Macron's dog Nemo filmed urinating in president's office

‘Does that happen often?’ junior minister asks French leader after labrador-griffon cross relieves himself against a fireplace

Like other French presidents before him, Emmanuel Macron knows the value of a photogenic dog at the Élysée Palace. His black labrador-griffon cross, Nemo, is the first French presidential pet to come from a rescue centre, and since his arrival this summer he has been photographed in the gardens and even standing to attention on the palace steps to welcome Niger’s president, Mahamadou Issoufou.

But two-year-old Nemo brought a whole new meaning to the term presidential leaks this weekend when he cocked his leg for a long and abundant wee against an ornamental fireplace in Macron’s gilded office during a filmed meeting between the president and junior ministers.

A cycling tour of the Balkans: two wheels, three countries, four days

Our writer and his friends recapture their youth and the joy of cycling, with a challenging trip taking in Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro

Rocking my bike from side to side, I crested the final rise and the landscape opened out before me. A high-altitude meadow freckled with cows rolled down into a shallow bowl surrounded by savagely contorted, parallel slabs of limestone sticking straight up from the earth. Beyond was 2,523-metre Bobotov Kuk, the highest point in Montenegro’s wondrous Unesco-listed Durmitor national park. Behind me were yet more staggering views, across glacial lakes to rows of mountain peaks, deep river gorges and pine forests populated by wild cats, bears and wolves.

‘My baby went to sleep and didn't wake up’: young lives lost to Ghana's silent killer

Malnutrition prevents almost a fifth of children in Ghana from growing properly. The problem is particularly acute in Bentum, Apprah and Nyanyano, rural communities with scant medical facilities, where pregnant women rarely get the right food and mothers have nowhere to turn

There is no war or famine in Ghana, and the economy is growing, yet malnutrition remains a silent killer that accounts for one-third of all child deaths in the country.

Although mortality rates are slowly starting to come down across the west African country, Ghana is struggling with high levels of stunting, a condition caused by chronic lack of nutrition in pregnancy and early childhood that permanently affects a baby’s mental and physical development.

Murder on the Orient Express: has the all-star gravy train run out of steam?

The all-star cast is part of Hollywood tradition. In 2017, have we reached capacity?

The names flash past in the trailer for the new Murder on the Orient Express like carriages on a bullet train: Kenneth Branagh (who also directs), Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Dench, Depp, Gad, Jacobi, Pfeiffer, Ridley. The whole approach screams: “Never mind the story; look at those names!”

Meet the teens making thousands from selling online

Generation Z are building business empires from their bedrooms using sites such as Depop and eBay

Entrepreneurial teens are selling hyped merchandise on resale platforms such as Depop – and earning mega-bucks. Every Thursday morning, a snake-like queue forms outside streetwear brand Supreme’s store in Soho as fans line up in the hope of walking away with bags filled with limited edition clothing “dropped” that day.

Among the fanatics are teenagers, and they’re not just there to boost the coolness of their wardrobe – they’ve come for the sole purpose of buying highly sought-after items to resell on Depop, a youth-targeted (54% of its users are aged 14 to 24) auction app.

The 100 best nonfiction books: No 90 – An Essay Concerning Human Understanding by John Locke (1689)
Eloquent and influential, the Enlightenment philosopher’s most celebrated work embodies the English spirit and retains an enduring relevance

This celebrated essay, available to its first readers in December 1689, though formally dated 1690, could hardly be more topical today. It is an examination of the nature of the human mind, and its powers of understanding expressed in brilliant, lapidary prose: “General propositions are seldom mentioned in the huts of Indians: much less are they to be found in the thoughts of children.”

In the first two books, the argument moves through the source of ideas, the substance of experience (the origin of ideas), leading to a discussion of “the freedom of the will”: “No man’s knowledge here can go beyond his experience”. In book three, Locke proceeds to discuss language, and in book four he defines knowledge as our perception of the agreement or disagreement between ideas.

Conspiracy theorists – in the Oval Office and out of it – await release of JFK files

Kennedy assassination documents are set to be released on Thursday. Experts’ weary testimony cannot dampen the ardor of those who say Oswald didn’t do it

“What happened in the window is not true,” said Ron Washington, holding a magazine containing grisly autopsy photographs of the 35th president of the United States. “It was only a decoy. Here’s the evidence.”

Rise and fall of Isis: its dream of a caliphate is over, so what now?
Islamic State’s last stronghold, Raqqa, has fallen. But the world’s attention must now focus on what it or other Islamist groups will plot next

For a group with such spectacular ambitions, Islamic State’s last stand took place in surroundings of almost shocking banality: a hospital and sports stadium in Raqqa, the Syrian town that was the political capital of its self-styled caliphate. After weeks of street-to-street battles and bombing, these final strongholds fell to Kurdish fighters last week. More than three years after Isis surged to global infamy with a stunning campaign of conquest, the end came with a whimper, not a bang.

“Once purported as fierce, now pathetic and a lost cause,” Brett McGurk, the US special presidential envoy for coalition forces tweeted. Such triumphant claims have become familiar since the 9/11 attacks. I heard them in Afghanistan in 2002, but US troops are still engaged in the fight against the Taliban. I heard them in Iraq in 2003, 2004, and then year after year until the US pulled out in 2011.

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

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

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

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

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

2017 on course to be deadliest on record for land defenders

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

Interactive: recording the deaths of environmental activists around the world

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

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

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

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

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

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

Land defenders call on UN to act against violence by state-funded and corporate groups

'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.

Alan Turing’s school report reveals little of his genius

Items from codebreaker’s life – and death – go on display at Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge

In 1929, a teenager’s end-of-term report noted that his English reading was weak, his French prose was very weak, his essays grandiose beyond his abilities, and his mathematical promise undermined by his untidy work.

The report gave few clues that Alan Turing would come to be seen as a genius, a mathematician and computer pioneer whose codebreaking work at Bletchley Park helped shorten the second world war and whose name is given to a test for artificial intelligence.

Stephen Hawking's 1966 doctoral thesis made available for first time

Cambridge University says Properties of Expanding Universes is already most-requested item in open access repository

Anyone in the world can now download and read the doctoral thesis of a 24-year-old Cambridge postgraduate student, written in 1966; how many will fully understand Properties of Expanding Universes is another matter.

Stephen Hawking hopes that giving free access to his early work will inspire others, not just to think and learn but to share research. He said: “By making my PhD thesis open access, I hope to inspire people around the world to look up at the stars and not down at their feet; to wonder about our place in the universe and to try and make sense of the cosmos.

Master of mindfulness, Jon Kabat-Zinn: ‘People are losing their minds. That is what we need to wake up to’

By taking the Buddhism out of the practice, Kabat-Zinn pioneered a meditative approach used all over the world to treat pain and depression. He talks about Trump, ‘McMindfulness’ and how a 10-second vision in 1979 led to a change in the world’s consciousness

The police in Cambridge, Massachusetts, showed no mercy to Jon Kabat-Zinn in May 1970. The man now considered the godfather of modern mindfulness was a graduate student from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and an anti-Vietnam-war protester, agitating alongside the Black Panthers and the French playwright Jean Genet.

“I got my entire face battered in,” he recalls. “They put this instrument on my wrist called the claw, which they tightened to generate enormous amounts of pain without leaving any marks. But they certainly left a lot of marks on my face. They pulled me into the back of the police station and beat the shit out of me.”

Rolling Stone founder falls out with biographer over candid life story

Kaleb and Kordale: meet America’s new model family

Kordale Lewis, Kaleb Anthony and their four children have taken social media by storm, creating an inspiring all-American family. Aaron Hicklin visits them in Georgia

Kordale Lewis has just returned from a late-night visit to the shops with his daughters, Desmiray, 11, and Maliyah, 10. Their large, grandly furnished home in the Atlanta suburbs is humming with anticipation of an imminent family trip to Paris. The girls have bought some accessories and Kaleb Anthony, Kordale’s partner, is taking an inventory.

“What did you dress them in?” he asks. Kordale replies that he bought pink trousers to go with Maliyah’s black flats and grey sweater. Kaleb is dubious: “Black flats with light colours?” Kordale ignores the provocation. “Desmiray is wearing black leggings with that sweater and her brown heels,” he says.

Grace Jones: ‘Size zero is like the walking dead. Not sexy at all’

The model, singer – and subject of a new film – on Trump, not being allowed to hit people and why she misses Concorde

A singer, songwriter, actor and model, Grace Jones was born in Jamaica in 1948. She was brought up by her grandmother and violent step-grandfather and moved to Syracuse, New York, to join her parents when she was 13. In the 80s, she had several hits, including Pull Up to the Bumper, My Jamaican Guy and Slave to the Rhythm, which combined reggae, funk and new wave. She appeared as Bond villain in A View to a Kill in 1985. She had a long-term relationship with photographer Jean-Paul Goude and they have a son, Paolo. Jones is currently finishing off her 11th studio album and has a documentary coming out about her called Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, directed by Sophie Fiennes.

How did you and Sophie Fiennes get along making this documentary?
We hit it off right away; we have the same amount of siblings in our family and we’ve both always been competitive. She’s like a sister in another life. I like that she just gets it done. It was easy having her around.

Philip Pullman: ‘My daemon is a raven, a bird that steals things’
Philip Pullman, whose His Dark Materials trilogy is celebrated the world over, has finally produced a new instalment in Lyra’s story. Here he answers questions from Observer readers and famous fans including Ed Sheeran, Rowan Williams and Ali Smith

Philip Pullman opens the door to his 16th-century Oxfordshire farmhouse looking pale and slightly washed-out in his crisp, white shirt and nut-brown waistcoat. Is he under the weather? “No, no, I’m perfectly fine,” he reassures me. “Just a bit apprehensive, perhaps, about what’s to come.” We are meeting a week before the launch of his new novel, so what is to come in the next few days is a whirlwind of book signings, public appearances, glad-handing, readings and interviews: “I’m doing the minimum possible but it is still going to be absolute pandemonium,” he smiles ruefully.

In truth, Pullman feels fitter and more energetic than he has for a long while. He spent much of the past couple of years in constant pain, until surgery restored him to full health last spring. “I’m a great deal better now, but that’s one reason I’m trying to keep the fuss to a minimum,” he says. You sense he might feel short-changed with no fuss at all, however, and Pullman grants that he is looking forward to sitting down in his book-lined study and getting to grips with my very long list of questions from Observer readers, writers, theatre directors, clergy and other distinguished folk.

We are in our 40s and want children, but my partner cannot ejaculate during sex
We are very much in love and the pressure is on to have a family, but my partner hasn’t been able to orgasm with me since I had a miscarriage

My partner and I are very much in love and are very solid in our relationship. We are both in our 40s and 100% sure we are right for each other. However, he is unable to ejaculate at all through sex. We are trying to have a family and so the pressure is on to perform. He was fine until I had a miscarriage. He is up for going to see someone to talk about it, but I can’t imagine what help that would be.

For your partner, there is nothing sexually exciting about a demand for his semen to appear in the right place at the right time. Be grateful he is willing to talk about it, and follow up as soon as possible by encouraging him to seek therapeutic work. This is particularly important since his inability to ejaculate during penetration may be linked to a fear of you having another miscarriage. Quite unconsciously, a man’s body will sometimes take on this kind of protective mode.

Should I avoid drinking in front of my children?

A new report suggests that young people are aware of their parents’ drinking – and it may well have an impact on their relationship with alcohol. So should you keep booze out of the family home?

When you’re drinking wine at home, don’t look as if you’re enjoying it – at least not if you have kids. How much you drink, how often you say: ‘Ah, that’s nice,’ while imbibing and whether you use alcohol as a reward or coping mechanism can all encourage adolescents to drink, according to a report last week from the Institute of Alcohol Studies.

In case you think it’s OK for teenagers to drink, the Department of Health advises children have an alcohol-free life until the age of 15 and only one drink a week until they are 18. In 2009, Prof Liam Donaldson, the Chief Medical Officer at the time, warned that “exposing children to drink-fuelled events” was one of the root causes of the UK’s drinking problem.

Brain unpicked: what makes a child psychopathic? | Abigail Marsh

Damage to the amygdala, not bad parenting, is to blame for psychopathic children, believes Abigail Marsh

The concept of a psychopathic child makes people queasy. The two categories seem incompatible. Children, even badly behaved ones, are viewed as maintaining some fundamental innocence, whereas psychopaths are seen as fundamentally depraved. Neither stereotype is totally true. Children, just like adults, are capable of cruelty and violence, and even highly psychopathic people are not cruel or violent all of the time.

Psychopathy is a developmental disorder. It doesn’t emerge out of nowhere in adulthood – all psychopathic adults show signs during adolescence or childhood.

My kids are grown up and my husband is leaving – I’m scared | Dear Mariella

A reader asks what she has left to look forward to – Mariella Frostrup suggests she embraces freedom from an unhappy marriage

The dilemma My husband and I have been together since our early 20s. When our children were seven and 11, I found out he’d been having an affair with a work colleague for several years. In a rage, I told my children and my 11-year-old daughter told him she would never speak to him again if he carried on seeing her. He ended the relationship and moved out for a while. Family and friends mostly advised me not to give him another chance but I did. Fast forward 10 years - my daughter just finished university and my son is about to go. My husband has announced he no longer wants to be married to me and he only stayed because he felt blackmailed into ending things with her. He knew I’d end up with the better deal, he’d have to live in a tiny flat somewhere and he wasn’t prepared lose everything that ‘he’ had worked for. So he bided his time until the children had grown up, to now divorce me and push for 50% of the assets. He feels no guilt because I told the children about his affair - which he says was totally unacceptable. I’m angry and desperate, my son will be gone soon, I’ll be alone in an empty house which I’ll have to sell, with no husband, in my fifties, with nothing to look forward to.

Mariella replies Freedom? Instead of clinging to his shirt tails you should be pushing him out the door. I know that’s what you’re afraid of, but the minute you do the relief will be palpable. What’s the alternative? Yet again you somehow manage to convince him to remain, fuelled by guilt and you both waste the second half of your lives in miserable cohabitation. I appreciate that it’s terrifying to conjure an independent existence when you’ve co-existed for decades, but no sustainable union can be built on the reluctant presence of one party.

Head space: why our adolescent memories are so clear | Daniel Glaser

The vivid recall of memories from early adulthood is to do with the state of the brain when they were first processed

Recently I was asked to choose a track that changed my life, as part of an event called OneTrackMinds. Without hesitation I chose the one I first heard when I was 17, effortlessly skipping back over decades to hook into a song from my late adolescence. I had my reasons for selecting this particular piece, but a neurobiological phenomenon was at work here, too.

The so-called reminiscence bump, based on many well-established studies about memory, refers to the way we recall memories from adolescence and early adulthood more vividly as we grow older – compared to, say, remembering something from last week. So much of what we remember isn’t to do with our mental state now, but about the state of our brain when the memory was first ‘processed’.
