Don José Manuel Suarez has seen some things. Father of seven and grandfather of 15, his 80 years have been spent farming a patch of land that has also been a battleground in the longest civil war in modern history. At an outdoor meeting of a co-operative of banana farmers in Ciénaga, near the northern Caribbean coast of Colombia, Don José Manuel sits in one shady corner of a clearing, patiently waiting his turn to speak. The other men and women are his old friends and neighbours. The question I’ve asked them is this: what have been the worst of times, and what the best?

In the hot morning sun, among the creaking plants hung with clenched hands of green bananas, the answers to the first part of that question have come thick and fast.

‘I’m 50. Am I too old to be a model again?’

It’s been 25 years since Karen Dobres last worked as a model. Could she harness her ‘grey power’ to once again make it in an industry driven by youth?

Recently, I read online that Vogue Italia had dedicated itself to “timelessness” with 73-year-old Lauren Hutton gracing its cover. By a weird quirk of fate, on the same day, the call to join a “grey rebellion” landed in my inbox. Grey Models, an agency for older fashion models, was running a one-day intensive Grey Rebellion workshop – a “coaching session for new faces, returning models and pros”. It promised training on catwalk, poses, expressions, castings, fitness, contracts and even “a hi-res photo from a Master Photographer” to take home.

With my 50th birthday looming, was this a signal from the cosmos to resurrect my part-time modelling career from 30 years ago? Could I tear myself away from a comfortable life of box set bingeing on Game of Thrones, throw off my Greywalker chains and reject a life of House of Fraser to re-join House Givenchy or House McCartney? Oh, what the heck, I thought, 50 is the new 25, right?

How I fell in love with performing as a drag king | Dani Weber

Drag performers have an incredible opportunity to challenge stereotypes and shine a spotlight on gender roles

I never thought I’d grow up to be a drag king. When I thought of drag, I thought of gay men in dresses, mocking women and making transphobic jokes. But when I moved to San Francisco and explored my queerness and the rich history and diversity within drag, I soon found myself in the spotlight.

As a baby bisexual in Melbourne, my only interaction with queer communities was through being a “fag hag”. I was only taken to bars and clubs by gay men to be an accessory – someone to dance with while they looked around for men to cruise. I was always read as a straight woman, but I knew that wasn’t really me, and I didn’t know how to find my people. When I met my partner Ben, who is also bisexual, we decided to move overseas so that we could be a bit more adventurous. I also had a feeling that I needed to explore who I was, away from family and friends.

Romanian film about fear of sexual intimacy wins Golden Bear at Berlin film festival

Surprise win for Touch Me Not means Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs has to settle for best director prize

Touch Me Not, a Romanian film about fear of intimacy and achieving sexual liberation was the unexpected winner of the Golden Bear, the Berlin film festival’s top award at the festival’s concluding ceremony on Saturday.

Directed by Adina Pintilie, Touch Me Not was picked ahead of 18 other films, including Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs and Utoya July 22, by a jury headed by German director Tom Tykwer, best known for Run Lola Run. Based around an English woman’s attempt to overcome her intimacy issues, and ranging across everything from disability to sex clubs, Touch Me Not blends fiction and documentary and is Pintilie’s first feature film.

Breaking the cycle: women are learning to love their hormones

To be labelled ‘hormonal’ used to be an insult. Now women are reclaiming the role of oestrogen in their lives. Eva Wiseman reveals how a new generation is being ‘empowered’ by their hormones

The grand plan, the plan to end the Second World War, was inspired by the docility of Paula Hitler. You don’t hear much about Paula, do you, the lesser-known Hitler, who worked as a secretary while big brother Adolf was upstairs doing the Holocaust? But yes, inspired by Paula, British spies planned to end the war by making Adolf less aggressive. They intended to do this by smuggling oestrogen into his food, thereby turning him into a woman. Hitler had tasters, said Professor Brian Ford of Cardiff University, who discovered the plot, so there was “no mileage to putting poison in his food because they would immediately fall victim to it”. But, “Sex hormones were a different matter.”

Though the word “hormone” was first used in 1905, derived from the Greek meaning “to arouse or excite”, it was during that period leading into the war that the science of endocrinology developed. Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers; they trigger activity in the body and regulate the function of organs. But with knowledge of their effects came creeping politics. If hormones meant women were less inclined to start wars, did it also mean they were less capable of ambition? Less capable of being leaders? If hormones meant men were more aggressive, less nurturing, was equality an impossible dream?

'I miss her so much': Australian man pleads for wife's release from Chinese prison

High school sweethearts – both originally from China’s Xinjiang Uighur region – dreamed of living together in Australia

The last time Almas Nizamidin saw his wife was on Valentine’s Day last year, when he flew from Australia to China to surprise her. Now she’s in prison.

A month after his visit to China, his newly pregnant wife, Bizainafu Abudourexit, was caught up in a Chinese crackdown on the Uighur Muslim minority group, detained without charge, and sentenced to seven years in jail with no legal support.

Waiting for Putin and Assad to run out of people to kill. Is that our plan? | Ian Bond
The response to years of atrocities enacted by the Syrian leader and his allies has been shameful. We should reconsider the use of force on them

It has been a quieter than average week in Syria. More than 400 people were killed in the unimaginably awful siege of eastern Ghouta, most of them civilians. But in the seven years since the regime of Bashar al-Assad set in motion the Syrian civil war, almost 500,000 people have died – well over 1,000 a week.

The truth is that brutality is winning in Syria because the democratic powers are afraid to confront it. As for Assad’s allies, Iran and Russia, the latest deaths will certainly not make them reconsider their support for him. Russia has again blocked a UN security council resolution calling for a ceasefire in Syria. Since the war began in 2011, Russia has vetoed 11 draft resolutions. Last week, it did not even need to veto, only to make clear that it would if the sponsors pushed their draft to a vote.

Clarify Brexit now, Mrs May, so that the UK can get back to business

Losing EU workers undermines UK trading and we urgently need investment in training to bridge the looming skills gap

This Friday business will hopefully get more clarity on the government’s vision for the UK’s future trade relationship with the EU, when Theresa May reveals her plans. Evidence strongly suggests that a comprehensive customs union with the EU, alongside a deep relationship with the single market, is best for jobs, investment and living standards.

But it is equally urgent to get clarity about people. Firms and their employees need to know who can live and work in the UK, now and in the future. This is as important as trade.

Losing weight is a journey. But do you ever reach the end? | Eva Wiseman

Weight Watchers may be scrapping its ‘before and after’ photographs but there never was an after, there’s always only now

We humans are a sucker for a journey. The tears I’ve shed watching a rural teenager get over the death of her grandmother through the healing properties of singing Whitney to Simon Cowell. The number of warm summer evenings I’ve lost because I had to wait through two ad breaks to find out what this ex-teacher from Ottowa looked like after she’d got rid of her baby weight; her baby now a teenager, the weight to lose that of a fully dressed four-year-old. A beginning: fat. A middle: hard work, a little crisis. An end: thin.

But, this week, Weight Watchers is acknowledging that, while this story is satisfying for the armchair viewer, it is not realistic. Not for the thousands of people for whom the journey of weight loss looks less like a simple car ride and more like a kind of nightmarish Interrailing experiment where your wallet is nicked by a one night stand you were falling in love with and your bag gets lost at the airport, containing your contact lenses and inhaler, and then suddenly the island you came from goes missing in a storm. Weight Watchers is scrapping its “before and after” photographs, the ones that show the transformation of their members Benjamin Button-ed, growing down, from big to little.

Don’t worry about AI going bad – the minds behind it are the danger | John Naughton
Killer robots remain a thing of futuristic nightmare. The real threat from artificial intelligence is far more immediate

As the science fiction novelist William Gibson famously observed: “The future is already here – it’s just not very evenly distributed.” I wish people would pay more attention to that adage whenever the subject of artificial intelligence (AI) comes up. Public discourse about it invariably focuses on the threat (or promise, depending on your point of view) of “superintelligent” machines, ie ones that display human-level general intelligence, even though such devices have been 20 to 50 years away ever since we first started worrying about them. The likelihood (or mirage) of such machines still remains a distant prospect, a point made by the leading AI researcher Andrew Ng, who said that he worries about superintelligence in the same way that he frets about overpopulation on Mars.

From Spain to Germany and Italy, the outflanked centre-left cannot hold | Jon Henley
The collapse of the social democratic vote across the continent calls for radical solutions – including a decisive break with the centre-right

These are troubling times for Europe’s social democrats. Centre-left parties face fresh threats next Sunday, when Italians will vote in their first general election for five years and Germany will learn whether its centre-left SDP will approve a new coalition with Angela Merkel’s centre-right CDU.

The two ballots are the latest tests for a mainstream centre-left which, outflanked on left and right, appears in full retreat – all but wiped out in France and the Netherlands, humiliated in Germany, struggling even in its Scandinavian heartland.

Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘gaffe’ and the fickle nature of public opinion | Rebecca Nicholson

Time was when the Hollywood star could do no wrong. But, oh dear, now...

Remember when Jennifer Lawrence was nice? It seems like only yesterday when she fell over adorably at the Oscars, and then again at another Oscars, and then again at the premiere of the final Hunger Games movie. Or only yesterday since she gave hilariously candid interviews that made her seem like a fun, regular human being, or since she earned a cute nickname, JLaw, because she was just so hilariously candid, and such a fun, regular human being.

But in the gaping chasm of insatiable celebrity commentary, the snapback has been swift and brutal. In the dramatic narrative of Hollywood’s popularity stakes, Lawrence has gone from down-to-earth darling to diva with astonishing speed. She can’t seem to do or say anything right. She’s the anti-Teflon, the star to which everything sticks.

Europe is facing a potential crisis in the Balkans. It has to act soon | Ivan Krastev

The promise of EU membership for states in the region is welcome, but Russia, China and Turkey could create instability

‘The second world war is over but the first world war is not yet finished.” Those were the words of a senior Turkish official I met recently in Ankara. He was speaking of the Middle East, but it was the sort of comment I might well also have heard in Moscow, in Kiev or in the Balkans, about the state of affairs on the European continent.

Berlusconi’s comeback shows that Italy still struggles with its fascist past | Sabrina Gasparrini

The former prime minister is capitalising on a cynicism that has its roots in decades of disconnect between citizens and institutions

Many foreign observers are baffled by the return of Silvio Berlusconi to the forefront of Italy’s politics. At the age of 81, and ineligible as a candidate as a result of a court ruling in 2013, he is busy campaigning for his Forza Italia party in the run-up to the 4 March elections.

Personally, I’m not that surprised.

The fairest of them all: why Europe beats the US on equality | Lucas Chancel

The inequality gap is widening across the globe – but Europe restricts the damage better than anywhere else

Inequality is on the rise across the world, but it’s not increasing everywhere at the same pace. In many ways Europe stands out as a positive exception. Despite all the criticism thrown at the EU, it is a global leader in preserving a degree of fairness in the social fabric. This may seem unlikely – Europe is hardly devoid of problems and tensions. Parts of the left depict it as a vehicle for neoliberal economic policies, and parts of the right deride it as an inefficient administrative monster. So how is Europe really doing?

It’s hard to exaggerate the difference between western Europe and the USA when it comes to inequality. In 1980, these blocs of similar population and average income were also similar in income inequality: the top 1% captured around 10% of national income, while the poorest 50% took around 20%.

Golden goal lifts OAR to Olympic men's hockey title over Germany in classic
  • Kirill Kaprizov’s overtime goal lifts OAR to win in thrilling final
  • Germany took, then lost lead in final seven minutes of regulation

Russia did not in fact win their first gold medal in men’s hockey in 26 years with a heart-stopping 4-3 overtime win over Germany on Sunday afternoon.

Instead a team competing neutrally as Olympic Athletes from Russia, the IOC’s inspired nomenclatural workaround to incorporate Russians at the Pyeongchang Games despite a wholesale doping ban, held off a stingy German team in the game of the tournament to capture Olympic men’s hockey gold, the first for a Russian-affiliated team since Albertville 1992.

Winter Olympics 2018: day 16 from Pyeongchang – as it happened

Well, that almost concludes the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, with just the closing ceremony to come. We’ll have a separate liveblog of the closing ceremony, as well as final official results, so please do stick around for that, but here’s a summary of the key events of the last day.

Marit Bjoergen is now the most successful Winter Olympian ever. She now has eight gold, four silver, and three bronze (total of 15 medals) from five Olympic Games.

Those stats! Her 15th medal is also Norway’s 14th gold at the Pyeongchang Olympic Games, a stellar effort for the comparatively small nation!

The win made the 22-year-old from the Czech Republic the first woman to ever achieve gold medals in different sports at a Winter Games, following her sensational victory in the women’s Super-G skiing last weekend.

New Zealand beat England in first ODI after dramatic finale – as it happened

New Zealand won a brilliant match in the final over thanks to the brilliant bowling of Trent Boult and Tim Southee, and the brilliant batting of Tom Latham and Ross Taylor; they lead the five-match series 1-0

So there we go: New Zealand take the lead in the five-match series; join us for the next instalment on Wednesday. Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Boult and Southee did superbly to slow England down towards the end of their innings, and the partnership between Latham and Taylor was special. But the match turned for the final time when Santner somehow got a perfect yorker away for four; no boundary off the first ball of the final over and the pressure is properly on.

Aymeric Laporte: ‘We were told one in a thousand kids would make it’
Manchester City’s new centre-half left home at 11 to pursue his dream of being a footballer. Now he wants his first trophy in the Carabao Cup final against Arsenal

As one door closes another one opens for Aymeric Laporte, dumped out of the FA Cup on a hectic night at Wigan on Monday but now in line for a first taste of Wembley in the Carabao Cup final in what would be only his fourth game since joining Manchester City.

“Our job is to keep our heads up and focus on the next game,” the 23-year-old French defender says. “Right now the most important thing is what is ahead of us. Winning a cup final would be a great step forward, it would be good to get a trophy under our belts and then go back to trying to make sure we win the league.”

José Mourinho loses special feeling for Chelsea and talks up Liverpool rivalry

The Manchester United manager says, with time passing, he demotes match against Antonio Conte’s side to ‘any normal game’

It is the fixture that releases an adrenaline rush at Manchester United according to José Mourinho, the game that carries extra significance for supporters and the rivalry of the Premier League. According to Mourinho that fixture is Liverpool. He has demoted Chelsea to the ranks of “any normal game”. The ramifications of Sunday’s result at Old Trafford ensure it is anything but.

The United manager will find few dissenters to his argument that Chelsea’s visit has lost an edge as neither team is competing for the title, despite sitting second and fourth at the start of the weekend. On a personal level he claims the memories of delivering three Premier League titles to Stamford Bridge fade with every encounter against his former club. The importance of victory over a Champions League rival and competitor has not diminished, however, not when those supporters who Mourinho claims have Liverpool’s arrival on 10 March circled in their diaries are craving signs of genuine progress at Old Trafford.

Tiger Woods’ late errors dent his big charge at Honda Classic
• American’s resurgence halted by missed chances on way to 69
• ‘I still believe I have a shot going into tomorrow’

But for a series of missed opportunities, Tiger Woods would have been beginning day four with an outstanding chance of ending a wait for a PGA Tour victory stretching back to 2013.

The 14-times major champion, amid what is now more of a resurgence than a return from a fourth back surgery, should still be a key part of the Honda Classic denouement but the third day had promised so much more. Woods trails the tournament leader, Luke List, by seven. Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson are within one of List.

European roundup: Barcelona rout Girona as Bayern Munich held by Hertha

• Messi double, Coutinho screamer and Suárez hat-trick in 6-1 win
• Bayern’s winning run halted by Hertha in goalless Bundesliga draw

Lionel Messi, Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suárez combined to devastating effect to help Barcelona hammer Girona 6-1 and take the club 10 points clear at the top of La Liga, as well as set a club record of 32 league games unbeaten.

Portu gave Girona a shock lead in the third minute but Suárez quickly levelled, before two goals from Messi and another from the Uruguayan saw Barça march into a 4-1 half-time lead. Coutinho, who had set up Suárez’s second, then struck for the first time in La Liga with a spectacular long-range shot. Suárez completed a hat-trick when he tapped in a cutback from Ousmane Dembélé.

David Ospina relishes Wembley calling and memories of hero Higuita
Arsenal’s ‘cup keeper’ recalls the joy in Medellín when René Higuita unleashed his scorpion kick against England and is keen to impress at a special venue for Colombian goalkeepers

It is fair to say that Colombian goalkeepers have form when it comes to making an impression at Wembley Stadium. None, naturally, could be any larger than life than René Higuita, the extrovert formerly known as El Loco – the Madman – whose extravagant flourish during a friendly game against England in 1995 became the stuff of legend. When Jamie Redknapp scooped a relatively tame ball towards goal, Higuita flipped acrobatically, flinging his legs behind him to clear with a mid-air scorpion flick. Just for the kick of the trick.

Back home in Medellín, a seven-year-old David Ospina watched the broadcast and felt a surge of pride that his compatriot, a local hero of goalkeeping, pulled off something so audacious. Of course, he was inspired by what he observed on the television. “We were delighted,” he recalls. “We talked about it a lot. It was great he did it at Wembley, too. For us Colombians Higuita is a really important figure. He did so much for the national team and the country. I have always had great respect for him, and it’s nice that he is remembered here for something special.”

Finn Russell masterminds historic Scotland victory over England
• Scotland 25-13 England
• Two tries from centre Huw Jones set tone at Murrayfield

Two years ago Scotland started against England here, following a rousing rendition of Flower of Scotland, like a deflated set of bagpipes. This time they matched their crowd and were at full bellow as they played with a sustained, controlled fury to record their first victory over the Auld Enemy for 10 years and throw open the championship.

They scored three tries, having not managed one against England here since 2004, and took the game to their opponents from the kick-off. What was ultimately decisive was the ferocity of their defence, summed up by the penalty-winning tackle made by the hooker Stuart McInally near his own line with two minutes to go. It was a victory fashioned at the breakdown and chiselled by grit.

Bernie Ecclestone urges Formula One to make bold switch to electric cars

The former chief executive of Formula One Bernie Ecclestone has said he believes the sport needs to make a radical break with the past and embrace an all-electric-powered future. He has suggested F1 should make some fundamental changes, including no longer paying the teams for taking part. Ecclestone also warned that Ferrari’s threats to leave the sport should be taken seriously.

“We still own the name Formula One, we still have contracts with promoters, let’s make different types of cars, let’s speak to the manufacturers and start a new all-electric F1, a Formula One for the future,” he said.

One to watch: Kali Uchis
The Grammy-nominated singer’s dreamy, soulful vocals belie a life marked by struggle

Kali Uchis isn’t exactly a musical unknown. With Grammy nominations, collaborators such as Gorillaz and funk icon Bootsy Collins, plus Amy Winehouse comparisons aplenty, it’s remarkable that this LA-based singer – real name Karly-Marina Loaiza – is only just releasing her first album.

The genre-weaving artist emerged in 2012 with her laptop-produced mixtape Drunken Babble. Though just 18 years old, Uchis seamlessly blended her delicately powerful voice over hip-hop-infused beats, catching the attention of artists including Tyler, the Creator, Snoop Dogg and Diplo. Her warm, soulful vocals have since featured on a number of impressive releases, including her acclaimed Por Vida EP.

Kristin Scott Thomas: 'My childhood was chaotic and catastrophic'

The actor, 57, talks about how her childhood stopped at 13, how she’s changed her mind about retiring, and why she’s happy doing DIY

Youth is a terrible weight to carry. Once it’s gone there’s such relief. I no longer have that panicky need to accumulate experience. I feel more detached from people’s idea of me.

I used to feel like a foreigner everywhere – that’s changed. I’m just… here. My children are all over the place, Belgium, Switzerland, Paris, but now I feel perfectly at home wherever I am.

In the Aisles review – Toni Erdmann star graces engrossing workplace drama

Sandra Hüller shines in an intriguing fable about a giant supermarket, in which she plays a sweet counter manager with a fondness for a forklift driver.

Sandra Hüller is the German actress who found world-cinema stardom on account of her performance in the black comedy Toni Erdmann; now she makes a very stylish appearance at the Berlin film festival in this utterly engrossing and richly humane workplace drama In the Aisles, from Thomas Stuber. Hüller is, of course, excellent. My only quarrel with the film is that she isn’t in it more.

Franz Rogowski (who was in Sebastian Schipper’s one-take robbery thriller Victoria) plays Christian, a quiet, watchful guy who has just started work in a gigantic cash-and-carry megastore. He mostly works the night-shifts, after the customers have gone home, wheeling motorised pallets and driving forklifts in the aisles, getting crates of food and other things down from shelves as high as buildings – difficult, potentially dangerous work. Christian keeps himself to himself, and is keen to cover up evidence of a more delinquent past: pulling up his collar and rolling down his sleeves so his tattoos don’t show. An older man has been tasked with showing Christian the ropes: this is the worldly, phlegmatic Bruno (Peter Kurth) for whom driving forklifts is a sad decline from his glory days at the wheel of a truck, relishing the freedom of the open road. And Hüller is Marion, who works on the confectionery section; as she drolly reminds everyone, she is in charge of “susswaren”: sweet stuff. She takes a distinct shine to Christian, and he to her. As Bruno says gleefully to Christian: “You’re forklifting like a lunatic because you’re in love!” But she won’t talk about her home life and her abusive husband.

Meera Sodha’s vegan recipe for kitchari | The new vegan

A centuries-old rice and lentil dish is given a new spin with wild rice and a baked almond yoghurt topping

Kitchari is a centuries-old rice and lentil dish that’s still eaten across India. Precursor of the Anglo-Indian favourite kedgeree and the Egyptian street food koshari, it’s the country’s original one-pot dish, and both seasonal and endlessly adaptable. This recipe is inspired by one I ate at Swati Snacks in Mumbai, a restaurant with strip lighting, laminated menus and a long queue: the telltale sign of a place everyone wants to eat at. Mainly, I assume, for the kitchari.

The secret to … not being a sweary parent

Record yourself while driving and check your language, pretend you’re talking to Mary Berry or keep a ‘swear jar’ as an incentive not to

Swearing is great, but if you’re a new parent, you might want to knock it on the head. If you think it gets through to your wee one when you say “I love you”, consider that the things you say when stuck in traffic might seep through as well. Record yourself while driving and listen back: it will help you get a true sense of how reflexive your habit is – and you’ll hear how brutal it sounds when swearing just slips out.

Some people employ the idea of speaking at all times as though their mother were in the room. The effectiveness of this obviously depends on how sweary a parent you have; substituting another shockable, easily disappointed authority figure (the pope, a former teacher, Mary Berry) could also prove useful.

I’m 17 and my parents control me and want me to conform – what can I do?

You are not going to make them change, says Annalisa Barbieri, but education is your way out – it won’t always be like this

I am a 17-year-old girl from a conservative family; they were furious when they discovered I was dating. My boyfriend is of a different race and nationality, which exposes the underlying racist nature of my parents.

Since then, they have made my life stressful. I understand that this is shocking for them, but I do not believe it justifies their behaviour: making threats to send me elsewhere, cutting off my education, using money as a means to control me, saying hurtful things and hitting me. I live in a conservative country that disregards human rights and there is no way for me to seek legal help. They say that I am ruining my life, even though I have the highest grades in school.

‘I’m climbing with a fitter friend: less effort, more fun’ | Zoe Williams

Together we could make a formidable team

I went climbing with a millennial. It was like a perfect political metaphor: she is younger, fitter, braver and more energetic. I am incredibly good at getting discouraged, having a rest and giving advice from the sidelines. She will cling on to a wall like a marmoset trying to escape certain death, whereas I will get near the top, realise how high that is and lose my nerve. Together we could make a formidable team, me at the bottom of the wall, going, “That’s great, try swapping your feet. Oh… What did you do that for?” And her going, “Shall we try that again so we’ve actually done it? Do you think we should have warmed up first?”

Climbing muscles, being the same as regular muscles, are use-it-or-lose-it. I climbed more often before I embarked on the lunatic running caper, and used to think of the green runs at my local centre as being for children, or for a warm-up. Now I find them devilish hard, and the purple is my top-of-the-tree, when in fact they are both for novices, really. I suspect the millennial of avoiding the blue-with-red-spots just so as to not show me up.

Yotam Ottolenghi’s potato recipes

A gratin, a fritter and an aromatic mash show the humble potato’s ability to bring out the flavours of other ingredients

The most memorable potatoes I’ve ever tasted were at the Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork, Ireland. Apart from being a superb example of a local new-season variety, these potatoes were simply boiled with heaps of aromatics before being tossed in butter and salt, but they had a hugely satisfying complexity. It wasn’t until this moment, after a lifetime as a cook, that I fully understood the true power of the humble potato, which is its ability to convey the flavours of other ingredients. It’s a modest quality, but one that gives us outstanding dishes.

Warren Buffett says Republican tax cut 'delivered' $29bn to his company

In his annual letter to shareholders, the billionaire investor wrote: “Berkshire’s gain in net worth during 2017 was $65.3bn.”

The power of pop culture: why we’re all crazy for nostalgia

From Stephen King’s It to Steven Spielberg’s new film Ready Player One, entertainment references from decades gone by are currently inescapable. So why all these blasts from the past now, asks film writer Ben Falk

Pop quiz, hot shot: when is nostalgia not nostalgia?

Answer: when it’s permeated movies, TV and music so deeply it’s become part of our 2017 norm. Think: the reboot of Stephen King’s It becoming the biggest horror hit ever, the myriad geeky references in Netflix’s Stranger Things 2, or Steven Spielberg’s new film, Ready Player One, where retro video games are practically a character in the plot.

Discover France’s ports of cool

Many ports in France are much more than a place to start and end your holiday – it’s often worth making time in your itinerary to explore these coastal towns. Here are five of our favourites

St Malo
This medieval city is home to many arty shops, markets, restaurants and pavement cafes – make sure you try the seafood (Le Chalut in the old town is very popular), and locally brewed cider. The ancient intra muros, or walled town, with its winding medieval streets and impressive Cathédrale St Malo is a major draw, plus you can enjoy stunning views of the town and harbour from the ramparts. At low tide the islands of Grand Bé and Petit Bé can be reached on foot, and if the weather’s good, make sure you take some time to relax on one of the city’s many gently shelving sandy beaches.

Do superfoods prevent cancer? Five myths around cancer dispelled

Miracle cures, conspiracies and complete fabrication are rife around cancer. From superfoods and shark cartilage to big pharma schemes, Nic Fleming unpacks five myths around its cause, prevention and cure

Watch out for deodorants. Avoid power lines. And bras. Make sure you get your goji berries. And don’t forget the shark cartilage pills. Having to deal with misinformed advice like this is unfortunately all too common for people with cancer.

There is plenty of accurate and useful information for patients – and those close to them – on the internet. Sadly, there are also a lot of half-truths, exaggeration and nonsense.

Kate Humble on Corfu: 'I begged my parents to let us stay longer'

Broadcaster Kate Humble was enchanted by the island of Corfu from her first visit at age 10 – so much so that it remains her best ever holiday

I grew up in Berkshire, in the leafy home counties, next to a farm, so my childhood was lots of climbing trees, building dens and riding bikes. Holidays were always in the UK and tended to involve going and staying in another cottage other than the one we lived in, doing wholesome things – Famous Five picnics, walking and going to a lovely petting zoo I remember in Sussex.

At some point, when I was 10, my parents must have thought that actually it would be really nice to go somewhere warm, where it might not rain. Or perhaps Mum suggested a holiday that didn’t involve just cooking in a different kitchen. Either way, something sparked an extravagant deviation from the norm, and we rented a villa in Corfu.

Woman in the picture: is Nigeria’s legendary Tutu still alive?

The search for the subject of Ben Enwonwu’s rediscovered 1974 masterpiece continues

When a long-lost painting depicting a Nigerian princess was found in a modest London flat late last year, art dealers believed the decades-long search had come to an end.

But the hunt for Tutu, as Ben Enwonwu’s 1974 masterpiece and its inscrutable sitter are known, has only just begun.

‘We can change this reality’: the women sharing news of war in Ghouta

As bombs fall on the besieged area of Syria, women’s voices are at the forefront

When the bombs start falling, two dozen adults and children gather in one room in Bayan Wehan’s home in besieged eastern Ghouta, Syria. They hold hands, hug each other and try to find hope.

“I put my brother’s daughter in my lap, she is five-years-old, and I try to make her forget the shelling noises. I tell her stories about beautiful things,” says Wehan, who has endured half a decade under siege.

Fears grow as rightwing billionaires battle to erode US union rights

Supreme court hears arguments in case that could strip unions of major source of income – amid worries that the unions will lose

A 20-year campaign by rightwing billionaire donors to undermine trade unions and strike a blow at the progressive movement in Americacomes to a climax on Monday, in a hearing at the US supreme court.

The nine justices of the nation’s highest court will hear arguments in Janus V AFSCME, a case that has the potential to strip unions of a major source of income. Should the court rule against the public sector unions – as many fear it will – they stand to suffer a decline in their 7.2 million-strong membership, and with it the withering of their political strength.

Post-colonial talk back: seeing London in the South Seas

Despite the problematic relationship between Pacific Islanders and the British empire, New Zealand’s poet laureate saw a meeting with the queen as an opportunity for connection

She has the most recognisable face in contemporary Western history and she’s almost within my reach. The longest-reigning British monarch and I share a few things: we are both seated in Westminster Abbey (founded in 960); we share the same birthday (on 21 April 2016); and we are both wearing blue in a sea of black and beige, as observed by many an attendee afterwards.

“My dear, how politic of you to wear the royal blue.”

Political Tribes review – an unreliable guide to the American Dream
Tiger mother Amy Chua is adept at spotting tribal behaviour, but less clear about what it all means

To most readers who recognise the name, Amy Chua is the author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, the bestselling memoir about bringing up children under a strictly traditional regime of Chinese parenting. The book seemed to repel and inspire in equal measure. But leaving aside its personal testimony, it was a work that dared to tread on disputed and dangerous terrain: the advantage of certain ethno-cultural traits.

It’s an issue that can be found to varying degrees in all five of Chua’s books, including her latest, Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations. Chua, a professor of law at Yale Law School, believes that ethnic and tribal identity plays a more powerful role in national politics than has been previously acknowledged, at least by American foreign policy.

Almost four environmental defenders a week killed in 2017

Exclusive: 197 people killed last year for defending land, wildlife or natural resources, new Global Witness data reveals. In recording every defender’s death, the Guardian hopes to raise awareness of the deadly struggle on the environmental frontline

The slaughter of people defending their land or environment continued unabated in 2017, with new research showing almost four people a week were killed worldwide in struggles against mines, plantations, poachers and infrastructure projects.

'Completely different context': Turnbull dodges gun control advice at Trump meeting – video

Australia’s prime minister tells Donald Trump ‘we certainly don’t presume to provide policy or political advice’ on gun control during a meeting at the White House. Malcolm Turnbull says that for their two countries it’s ‘a completely different context, historically legally and so forth. We are very satisfied with our laws, we maintain them.’ The US president again promoted the idea of arming teachers, saying they would be more effective than the armed guard who failed to prevent the Florida shooting because teachers ‘love their children’.
