Facebook in 'PR crisis mode' over Cambridge Analytica scandal

Academic behind app that mined data from users tells MPs social network’s outrage was hollow

Facebook’s claims to be outraged over the Cambridge Analytica scandal were simply hollow words in “PR crisis mode”, the academic at the centre of the dispute has told parliament.

Aleksandr Kogan, the Cambridge University researcher whose Facebook app, GSR, extracted the data of millions of users from the platform, said he thought it was reasonable for the social network to continue to employ his former business partner and co-founder, Joseph Chancellor, because they do not “actually think” that his previous work was problematic.

Jeff Bezos v the world: why all companies fear 'death by Amazon'

With its profound knowledge of its customers, Amazon can move into almost any sector – striking fear into the hearts of rivals. And the $740bn company is ‘just getting started’

The computer on which this article was written is sitting on a laptop stand that tells you everything you need to know about how Amazon does business. At $19.99 (£14.99) a pop, the laptop stand combines everything customers love about Amazon: utility, price and convenience. It’s also a total and complete knockoff – of a laptop stand that the San Francisco-based company Rain Design began selling nearly a decade before Amazon decided to make its own.

Amazon’s innovation with its own version was to replace Rain Design’s raindrop logo with its own smiley arrow logo – and cut the price in half.

The rise of Russia’s neo-Nazi football hooligans
For the past two decades the Russian state has encouraged groups of violent far-right fans. As the World Cup approaches, it is struggling to tame them. By Simon Parkin

The day that Denis Nikitin, a Russian neo-Nazi who claims he once kept a framed photograph of Joseph Goebbels in his bedroom, took part in his first street fight, his mother made him a packed lunch. During the past 12 years, the Moscow-based MMA fighter has become a rising star of the far right, after brawling his way up through the ranks of one of Russia’s top hooligan firms. But on that day, Nikitin says, he was like a schoolboy on his first field trip; his mother, who thought her 22-year-old son was going to watch a football match, filled his rucksack with food and warm clothes.

Nikitin took a six-hour bus ride to the match, but he had not bought a ticket. (His fellow hooligans joke that, in the past decade, he has been inside a football stadium fewer than five times.) Since his family had moved from Moscow to Germany a few years earlier, his interests had narrowed to far-right politics and violence. Nikitin’s local “team” was visiting Hamburg – a city whose left-wing supporters were a favourite target of the far-right Cologne hooligans. Nikitin’s hobbies just happened to intersect at football.

How academic at centre of Facebook scandal tried – and failed – to spin personal data into gold

The story of Aleksandr Kogan’s business ventures reveals a world where companies traded in the currency of personal information

As Aleksandr Kogan goes before parliament on Tuesday to account for his role in the controversial harvesting of Facebook data that was later used by Cambridge Analytica, he leaves behind him two unsuccessful companies and a once-promising academic career.

Kogan was a young psychologist fresh off a post-doctoral fellowship when he earned an appointment as a lecturer at Cambridge University in 2012 – a coup for any academic. Just six years later, the erstwhile Dr Spectre has been maligned in the press, mocked for his eccentric name change, and banned from the social network that he thought would provide him with the data to advance his research.

Porridge, porkers and patriotism: 14 things we learned about the royal baby

Britain’s media devoted hours of coverage and more than 80 pages to the birth of the new Prince of Cambridge. Here are the highlights

You would think, with just a birth weight and a delivery time to go on, plus a few words on the steps of a hospital, there was not a huge amount to write about Monday’s royal baby news. But collectively the British press managed to fill more than 80 pages of print with the new Prince of Cambridge. Here are some of the, er, fascinating things we learned from the extensive coverage.

Swiss rösti with a twist: North and South Korea summit menu's diplomacy

The fried potato dish was chosen as an homage to the North Korean leader’s childhood in Switzerland, the Blue House said in announcing the menu for Friday’s welcome dinner.

Huawei P20 Pro review: the three-camera iPhone killer

The Chinese smartphone maker has hit a home run with this top-end smartphone that’s on a par with the best

With the P20 Pro, Huawei has not only proved that it can compete with the likes of Apple and Samsung, but it can beat them in many ways. Three cameras really are better than one (or two).

Having established its name in value smartphones, Huawei has recently made inroads into the premium market with the likes of the Mate 10 Pro and last year’s P10. They were of high quality, and had all the features you’d expect from an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S. But until now they’ve not quite captured the same luxurious feel.

Growing up in the Wild Wild Country cult: ‘You heard people having sex all the time, like baboons’

In 1976, Noa Maxwell’s family joined Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh’s ‘free love’ commune, now the subject of a Netflix series. He talks about his ‘weirdo’ childhood, and his struggle to adjust to life outside


When Noa Maxwell was four, his bohemian upper-middle-class parents, disillusioned with London, bought a farm in Herefordshire, where they began to live self-sufficiently – harvesting by horse, slaughtering pigs, curing bacon, making butter – while trying to find time to paint.

One day in 1976 they received a letter from a friend who was in India where he had found the meaning of everything. So Noa’s family – parents plus three children – went out to visit the ashram in Poona where the controversial guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, also known as Osho, was preaching his mix of eastern mysticism, western philosophy and free love, raising the consciousness and promising utopia to his orange-clad international followers.

Playboy models are having a political moment in Trump's America | Jill Filipovic

Women who were once dismissed are calling out exploitative Republican men

In a reality TV star presidency, Playboy models and other women who professionally cater to the mundane sexual fantasies of middling men are having a political moment.

Stormy Daniels, an adult film star, and Karen McDougal, who posed for Playboy, both say they had affairs with the president. And Elliott Broidy resigned as deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee after it came to light that he was involved in a $1.6m payment to a Playboy model he impregnated during an extramarital affair.

Congratulations, William and Kate – you can afford a third child | Dawn Foster

Britain’s two-child policy for people on benefits is a disgrace, in a country that enjoys such vast wealth

Congratulations to the royal couple on three levels. First, by so spectacularly timing the birth of the baby boy with Saint George’s Day, a happy convergence that will cause patriotic English hearts to soar. Alas, as the family already have a George, another fitting name will have to be sought: perhaps A historical Imperial Nostalgia Windsor could work?

The Duchess of Cambridge is also lucky to have escaped the centuries-old tradition of home secretaries being present at the births of royal babies, to prevent Catholic interloper babies from sneaking into the monarchal bloodline. Mercifully, this practice ended shortly before Prince Charles’s birth, so Amber Rudd could continue to concentrate on the Windrush scandal she and Theresa May birthed, rather than spending hours concentrating on a dilating cervix.

Happy birthday to YouTube? It's now a terrifying cesspit of clickbait | Arwa Mahdawi

One YouTuber fed a homeless man biscuits filled with toothpaste. Another killed her boyfriend in a prank gone wrong. As the video-sharing site turns 13, it seems to be increasingly out of control

A massive happy birthday to what looks like the world’s most influential dick joke. Thirteen years ago this week, Jawed Karim uploaded a video of himself standing in front of some elephants and making a juvenile quip about their “really, really, really long trunks”. The short clip, titled Me at the Zoo, would be as unremarkable as it was unfunny, were it not for the fact that Karim is the co-founder of YouTube and this was the first video uploaded on to the site.

I never thought I would be nostalgic about the good old days of elephant genitalia gags. However, Me at the Zoo seems endearingly wholesome when you look at the terrifying cesspit of clickbait content YouTube has become. In 13 years, the video-sharing website, which was purchased by Google in 2006, has redefined the nature of celebrity. It has, to quote an Observer headline from 2010, made “superstars of everyday people”. Increasingly, however, it seems to be making psychopaths of everyday people. If you want to make money from YouTube, then – to reduce its constantly changing monetisation rules into their simplest terms – you need a shedload of views. In order to get those views, and compete with the billions of other videos on the site, some content creators are resorting to highly unethical behaviour.

The Windrush scandal is no accident – it is Tory policy working as intended | Suzanne Moore

Forget bureaucratic ineptitude. The Tories are convinced they have the consent of the people to enact inhumane policies

On their deathbed, who would want to look back and say: “I am proud of creating a hostile environment for immigrants so that some people who had lived in Britain all their lives were deported to countries they had never been to”? Who wants to take responsibility for the heartbreaking stories we have been hearing?

The closest I have heard to anyone being honest about this mess is Baroness Warsi, a former Conservative party chair. “I think we were all responsible,” she said. “I would hold myself responsible as part of the government.” She went on to describe a government obsessed with unrealistic targets. The ruining of lives, the tearing apart of families, is not the result of bureaucratic ineptitude. This is policy working as intended. The collateral damage of the 2014 Immigration Act is the rupturing of lives of those we can deem, retrospectively, not “one of us”. The idea that a person can be born here or arrive as a child, raise a family and pay taxes, but still somehow be seen as completely “foreign” comes as a jolt.

India's death penalty for rapists of young girls could push them to kill | Rituparna Chatterjee

With the majority of rapes committed by someone known to the victim, the new law could drive offenders to murder to avoid detection

On Saturday India’s government approved the death penalty for convicted rapists of girls under the age of 12, amid a groundswell of public outrage following the gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Jammu and Kashmir state.

The shocking case involved a girl from the Bakarwal nomadic tribe, who was out grazing her horses when she was abducted, drugged and murdered after a week of torture and repeated rape. It led to a nationwide outcry for swifter justice.

Roma must avoid slipping into bunker mentality in face of Liverpool storm | Jonathan Wilson

Liverpool’s physicality and ferocious pressing mean the tactics that served Roma against Barcelona will have to be redesigned for the Champions League semi-final first leg

Two problems dominate all others before Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final at Anfield – at least in determining how the game will be won. Can Roma stop Mohamed Salah and can Liverpool defend set plays?

A key factor in Roma’s success against Barcelona was Eusebio Di Francesco’s switch to a 3-5-2, having fielded a 4-3-3 in every other game bar one this season. It not only wrong-footed Barcelona but meant Roma had three against two at the back and in midfield, something that was possible because the two wing-backs, Alessandro Florenzi and Aleksandar Kolarov, had the energy to drive back Barça’s wide men, Sergi Roberto and Andrés Iniesta. It forced them to defend rather than tucking in to offer support to the two central midfielders, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic.

Cricket for idiots: there are 100 reasons not to like the ECB’s big idea | Andy Bull

The Hundred is a baffling move from the ECB: an idea no one in cricket likes, and no one outside cricket knows they want

Each county ground has its own soundtrack, subtly distinct from every other. At the Oval there are the schoolchildren playing at the other side of the Harleyford Road, the high jet planes on the approach to Heathrow, and the gravelly shouts of “C’mon the ’rey” from the gruff fan who sits at the back of the Peter May stand. These last few days, while Surrey have been playing Hampshire, there has been a new undertone to it, murmurs, mutters, disgruntled chuntering about the England and Wales Cricket Board. It is not an entirely unfamiliar sound, but it is louder and more insistent than before. And unlike those other notes, these aren’t unique to the Oval.

Leeds United branded 'disgraceful' after announcing Myanmar tour

• Myanmar subject of numerous human rights abuse allegations

• Leeds to play games in Yangon and Mandalay in May

Leeds United have announced they will play two matches in Myanmar in a tour sponsored by a bank with close links to the regime accused of ethnic cleansing and human rights abuses against its Muslim Rohingya minority.

Leeds will play two post-season friendlies in May in the Myanmar cities of Yangon and Mandalay.

Mitt Romney turns basketball heckler as Utah Jazz down Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Former presidential candidate mocks Russell Westbrook during game
  • Jazz victory puts team 3-1 up in NBA playoff series

If going down 3-1 to the Utah Jazz in their NBA playoff series wasn’t bad enough for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night, they also found themselves on the receiving end of abuse from a former presidential candidate.

As Russell Westbrook picked up a fourth foul in the first-half – players leave the game if they get six – the TV cameras panned to Mitt Romney, with a Jazz jersey over his button-down shirt, mocking the Thunder guard. If Romney was attempting to play mind games with Westbrook it didn’t work – the reigning NBA MVP went on to record a double double in his team’s loss. In the past Romney has broadcast his love of the Boston Celtics but is now campaigning for a place in the Utah senate, which may explain his backing of the Jazz.

World Cup stunning moments: Clive Thomas denies Zico and Brazil

With six seconds of stoppage time played, Clive Thomas blew his whistle a moment before Zico scored to beat Sweden – a decision which reverberated around the world

“Uncontroversial, non-dictatorial and magnanimous are not adjectives I would associate with Clive Thomas,” wrote Clive White in the Times in April 1981, after “a ludicrous penalty award” had handed Wolves a last-minute equaliser against Tottenham in an FA Cup semi-final. “There is a view that the best referees make themselves as inconspicuous as possible. I am not sure that Mr Thomas shares that belief, because the star performer before an audience of 50,000 and millions more peering through the keyhole of television was unquestionably Mr Thomas. It was the Clive Thomas Spectacular Show.”

Manchester United fans condemn FA Cup final ticket price rises of up to 35%
• Supporters’ trust says prices for Chelsea game are ‘extortionate’
• FA has raised the price of all but the cheapest seats

The raising of FA Cup final ticket prices by up to 35% by the Football Association has been branded “extortionate” by the official Manchester United supporters’ trust.

The increase in ticket costs, apart from in the lowest category four band, for United’s meeting with Chelsea has been met by dismay by MUST. Category four had the lowest allocation of 10,057 and 10,144 seats for the 2016 and 2017 finals respectively, so the same can be expected for the game at Wembley on 19 May. Those tickets cost £45.

Rockets throttle Wolves with 50-point quarter, most in playoff game since 1962
  • Harden and Rockets cruise past Wolves with 50-point third quarter
  • Houston take three-games-to-one advantage in first-round series
  • Jazz push Thunder to brink of elimination with 113-96 Game 4 win

James Harden gave Houston quite the jump-start with 22 of the team’s 50 points in the third quarter, as the Rockets cruised past the Minnesota Timberwolves 119-100 on Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in their first-round playoff series.

Chris Paul scored 15 of his 25 points in the near-record third for the Rockets, who turned a 50-49 halftime edge into a 31-point advantage after the torrid 12-minute span. The only team in the history of the NBA playoffs with more points in one quarter was the Los Angeles Lakers, who scored 51 points in the fourth on 31 March 1962 in a loss to the Detroit Pistons.

William Friedkin: 'You don’t know a damn thing, and neither do I'

The Exorcist director returns to his demonic roots with a new documentary, but he’s not interested in discussing your skepticism

A video clip featuring William Friedkin recently experienced a small level of virality among online film circles, in which the film-maker dresses down Nicolas Winding Refn after the younger director declares his own film Only God Forgives to be a masterpiece. Friedkin repeatedly calls for a medic, compares Refn’s film unfavorably to Citizen Kane, and most memorably, uses a vivid metaphor that puts the “anal” in “analogy”.

Friedkin, speaking on a drizzly afternoon in his suite at New York’s Carlyle Hotel, wants to make it clear that he bears no ill will to Refn. “I like him! He’s a nice guy. I like him very much.” But the larger truth underlying their charged exchange persists: William Friedkin simply does not give a damn.

Winter is coming: how the weather became TV's coldest villain

As in Game of Thrones and Fortitude, it is the unforgiving climate that give The Terror – AMC’s show about the doomed HMS Erebus – a real chill

As you navigate the TV listing straits, you might think that The Terror is one to swerve. It has the title of a B movie, the premise of a 50s creature feature and, frankly, looks colossally depressing. Curb your pessimism, though: the show has been one of the finds of 2018. An adaptation of Dan Simmons’ novel, it is based on the real-life expedition of HMS Erebus and its bomb vessel HMS Terror as they set out to find the northwest passage through the Arctic Ocean and into the Pacific in the 1840s. With an imposing cast including Jared Harris, Tobias Menzies and Ciarán Hinds, it garnered gushing reviews when it premiered in the US earlier this year.

All we know for sure of the historical expedition is that the ships were locked in ice and that the 129 men who set out were never seen again. On the show, weeks turn into months as the stranded men await a thaw; they are menaced by a giant – possibly monstrous – polar bear and are beset by the kind of unravelling of the mind inevitable when stranded in one of the planet’s most hostile environments. As the ice exerts a vice-like grip on the ships, the predicament likewise seizes the psyches of the men. Alongside an intense camaraderie, fear, resentment and paranoia flourish. It often calls to mind that other great tale of naval misadventure, Das Boot.

Leni Riefenstahl archive to throw new light on Hitler's film-maker

Critics fear bequest will fuel new wave of fanaticism among those who continue to revere the German propagandist and neo-Nazi icon

He lays an array of sepia portraits of the propagandist Leni Riefenstahl across the table of the workshop of the Museum of Photography in Berlin. “In these cases are items that no one outside of Riefenstahl’s intimate circle have ever seen before,” he says.

Slaver! Invader! The tour guide who tells the ugly truth about museum portraits

Was Lord Nelson a white supremacist? Was Queen Victoria a thief? Alice Procter take us on one of her Uncomfortable Art Tours, which aim to show how the empire still exerts a grip on British galleries

Last June, Alice Procter started running free gallery tours. She had answered a call-out from Antiuniversity, a project that helps organise radical educational events, and wanted to try out an idea. Her plan was to take people through museums, looking at the ways colonialism continues to influence their displays and the aesthetics of art, and examine the role of empire in funding the spaces themselves. She didn’t think they’d be popular – but they sold out.

The MA student now does Uncomfortable Art tours at the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, the British Museum, the V&A, the National Maritime Museum and Tate Britain. “My parents took me to museums when I was a kid,” says the 23-year-old, “so I’ve always been very comfortable in art galleries. I have experience as a tour guide, I fit the profile of the typical young white girl who’s an art history student doing a guided tour. And I can use that.”

Prince's family suing hospital that treated singer for initial opioid overdose

The musician’s next of kin are also suing pharmacy Walgreens, while new music from the late artist is expected this September

Prince’s next of kin are suing the hospital that treated the musician for an opioid overdose a week prior to his death, the New York Times reports.

Last week, Minnesota authorities ruled there would be no criminal charges related to Prince’s fatal overdose in 2016. Prosecutors believe that on 15 April 2016 Prince likely overdosed on counterfeit Vicodin that also contained the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl. This was the same drug that caused his death at his Paisley Park estate five days later.

‘We’ve got more money swirling around’: how streaming saved the music industry
Thanks to the success of Spotify, big stars from Ed Sheeran to Fleetwood Mac are cashing in, while even artists in niche genres such as Danish cloud rap are flourishing, sometimes without record labels. Is this unexpected revival here to stay?

‘It was a disaster,” said an executive called Per Sundin when asked to reflect on his career during the 00s. “A truly terrible time. I fired more than 250 people. They were dark days: we’d be invited to dinner somewhere and my wife would say to me: ‘Don’t tell anyone what you do for a living.’”

What ignoble occupation had Sundin chosen? Arms dealer? Cigarette manufacturer? CEO of Enron? Not quite: he was the head of Universal Music’s Nordic operation. The “disaster” he was talking about was working for a record label when CD sales were in decline.

Ruby Tandoh’s recipe for instant custard creme brulee

Of all the icons I could copy, of all the causes I could espouse, I’ve forged myself in the image of Britain’s most beloved eggless cornflour custard mix. I love this stuff: I love that if you have a tub of it in the cupboard, you have the makings of a midweek pudding – bananas and custard, a makeshift apple crumble or this back-to-basics creme brulee – no baking, no split custard, no water bath.

In 2012, a shell company linked to the Fox News host bought 11 homes in Georgia that had been purchased by the dealer, Jeff Brock, following foreclosures. Brock transferred the properties to corporate vehicles that sold them on to the Hannity-linked company at a profit.

English justice 'hanging on by fingernails', warns top judge

Funding cuts to criminal courts could undermine quality of entire system, says Lady Justice Hallett

The English justice system is hanging on to its reputation as the best in the world by its “fingernails” due to the government’s failure to provide adequate funding, one of the country’s most senior judges has warned.

In an interview with the Guardian, Lady Justice Hallett called for the entire criminal and civil justice system to be supported, saying a bias towards specialist commercial courts, which bring in lucrative, international business to London, could impact the quality of the entire system.

Her comments come as criminal barristers threaten mass walkouts over successive cuts to their fees. The Law Society has warned that defence solicitors in criminal cases are in danger of becoming “extinct” because the Ministry of Justice has progressively reduced payments to the profession.

Rana plaza, five years on: safety of workers hangs in balance in Bangladesh | Michael Safi and Dominic Rushe

Progress has been made but fire safety initiatives are soon to end, unions are being stifled and wages are still the lowest in the world

Five years ago, Asma Khatun pushed through the crowds that had formed around the Rana Plaza building, determined to see the destruction with her own eyes.

Deep cracks had appeared in the eight-storey building outside Dhaka the day before. That morning, workers who had been producing clothes sourced by major international brands had begged not to be sent inside. Managers would not relent. More than 2,000 people filed in. Some time before 9am, floors began to vanish and workers started falling.

Fashion Revolution Week: seven ways to get involved

Want to join the campaign to improve conditions in clothing factories? From showing support on social media to picking up a needle and thread, it is easy to help

Five years ago, the issue of where our clothes come from went from being a matter of curiosity to something more urgent. It was on 24 April 2013 that the Rana Plaza disaster occurred on the outskirts of Dhaka in Bangladesh; more than 1,130 people died after the factory building in which they were working collapsed. The disaster galvanised Carry Somers and Orsola de Castro, co-founders of Fashion Revolution, into action. Fast-forward to now and it has grown into the world’s largest global fashion activism movement.

Their campaign is simple. They are urging the industry to take more responsibility and show greater transparency in the supply chain. If brands do not know what is happening in the factories that supply them, if is difficult for them to improve conditions. Fashion Revolution asks one question: who made my clothes?

Archeologists say early Caribbeans were not 'savage cannibals', as colonists wrote

But archaeologists in Antigua say new evidence from one of the most important sites in the region is helping to correct “speculative and erroneous” accounts passed down from early colonists.

The excavation at a 12-acre site in Indian Creek has prompted a reassessment of older narratives, said Dr Reg Murphy, who is leading a team from Syracuse University, Farmingdale State College and Brooklyn College.

'Deals with the devil always unravel': the UK blind spot for Sudan's abuses | Rebecca Lowe

Britain and the EU are under fire for engaging with a nation with one of the world’s worst human rights records – all in the name of stemming migration

When Amjed Farid was transferred to a small cell in Kober prison on 5 April, he had a sense of deja vu. “I suddenly realised it was the same one I’d been in five years before,” he says. “It brought back some unpleasant memories. I spent a month in solitary, and had hoped I’d never have to see the place again.”

Farid was one of hundreds imprisoned in Sudan in January following peaceful protests against government austerity measures. While some were released after a few weeks, dozens were detained for nearly three months without charge, including British citizen Sidqi Kaballo. Many were kept in a bitterly cold security centre in Khartoum notorious for interrogations and torture, dubbed “the Hotel” by officials.

Is white America ready to confront its racism? Philosopher George Yancy says we need a 'crisis'

In his new book, philosopher George Yancy uncovers just how unprepared even well-meaning whites are for a courageous conversation about race

George Yancy’s new book, Backlash, grew out of “Dear White America”, a piece on the pervasiveness of white racism that he wrote for the New York Times’ philosophy column, The Stone. After the piece was published on Christmas Eve 2015, Yancy received an extraordinary number of responses from white readers, many of which were aggressively defensive and included racist epithets and threats of physical violence. Backlash extends the argument made in “Dear White America”, and turns personal and philosophic lenses on the vile responses it received.

Inadequate support for Hong Kong’s ageing population means for some older citizens, scavenging and selling boxes and scrap is the only way to scrape by

Wong is one of an estimated thousand senior citizens nicknamed “cardboard grannies” who collect and sell waste boxes and other scrap across nine of the poorest districts in the city.

The vanilla thieves of Anjahana were so confident of their power to intimidate farmers they provided advance warning of raids. “We are coming tonight,” they would write in a note pushed under doors in this remote coastal village in Madagascar. “Prepare what we want.”

But they either undervalued their target commodity or overestimated the meekness of their victims. After one assault too many at the turn of the year, a crowd rounded up five alleged gangsters, dragged them into the village square and then set about the bloody task of mob justice.

Ten-year-old violinist Christian Li from Melbourne, Australia, has become the youngest ever competitor to win first prize in the junior category at the 2018 Menuhin Competition – the world’s most prestigious violin competition for players under 22, which took place in Geneva.
