'We stand to wipe out a whole era': how the 1970s could vanish from Vancouver

The Empire Landmark Hotel is the latest brutalist icon set to be demolished in a frenzy of property speculation. Is it wrong to destroy an entire decade?

For nearly 40 years from his vantage point at the top of the Empire Landmark Hotel, Yunus Khan has watched Vancouver grow up. “You would barely recognise it,” he says of the city as it looked when he took his first job at the hotel, doing maintenance. Beyond the 42nd-storey window, the jagged silhouette of the North Shore mountains, the lush surprise of Stanley Park, and the cobalt passage of Burrard Inlet are just about the only landmarks that remain unchanged.

“These are all new,” Khan says, indicating a cluster of condo towers and the ultra-modern Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre further south. Construction cranes rise around them. “Any older building you see now, it’s going. They break it down, make a high rise.”

Adut Akech was packing her bags when we spoke on Friday. She’d finished high school just the day before, and that night the 17-year-old from Adelaide would be flying to France to take part in the Saint Laurent show, which marked the start of this year’s Paris fashion week.

On Wednesday morning shots of her marching down the runway flew across fashionistas’ social media accounts; wearing a dramatic black-and-white top, short shorts and furry boots, hers was the final outfit in the much-applauded show. Akech has arrived.

'Alternative Nobel' winner: 'Women need to see role models to become leaders'

Yetnebersh Nigussie, disability activist and human rights lawyer, on growing up blind in Ethiopia – and scooping the ‘alternative Nobel’

Yetnebersh Nigussie didn’t realise she was different until she was 12. Only when she started at a mainstream school and found that no one wanted to be her friend did she start to understand that being a blind girl in rural Ethiopia might bring with it a few challenges.

Being disabled and female in the developing world are no small barriers. But Nigussie, now a human rights lawyer with two daughters of her own, has been named as one of the winners of an award described as “the alternative Nobel prize” for what the Sweden-based Right Livelihood award foundation described as “her inspiring work, promoting the rights and inclusion of people with disabilities”.

Prophets of Rage: 'We're the soundtrack to the resistance!'

Rap-rock supergroup Prophets of Rage formed to vent their fury at Donald Trump. Chuck D, Tom Morello and B-Real talk about fake news, the power of protest songs and why they wanted to #takeaknee

It started with a tweet. On 12 April last year, Tom Morello was watching CNN when he saw the news: “Trump rages against the GOP machine.” Rage Against the Machine, the pioneering LA rap-metal band that Morello formed in 1991, may have been the most radically leftwing group ever to headline arenas but a name that catchy is bound to be commandeered for other kinds of rage against different machines. Morello took a screenshot and tweeted it with the words: “This isn’t exactly what we were thinking.”

Clearly the gods of protest music were telling him to do something. Less than two months later, Morello had formed the supergroup Prophets of Rage, a kind of rap-rock Avengers featuring Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford from Rage, Chuck D and DJ Lord from Public Enemy and B-Real from Cypress Hill. “This was a five-alarm fire,” Morello says. “Raise your hand if you want to save the country!”

In front of Birobidzhan’s railway station, loudspeakers blast out Yiddish-language ballads while hundreds of schoolchildren in ersatz folk costumes dance circles around the menorah monument that dominates the square.

Across town, labourers are building a kosher restaurant, the city’s first. A two-storey building under construction next door will house a mikvah, the ritual pool in which religious Jews must bathe.

Sense and sensuality: Dior embraces female artists while Saint Laurent sparkles

Maria Grazia Chiuri doffs Dior’s beret to ‘revolutionary women’, with feminist essays and a nod to artist Niki de Saint Phalle, and Anthony Vaccarello takes a more sensual tack for his Saint Laurent show

The careers of Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent were intimately intwined in the 1950s, but the megabrands that live on in their names – both of which presented their spring/summer 2018 collections on Tuesday in Paris – have developed quite different approaches to fashion.

At Dior, the tone was set by a copy of Linda Nochlin’s groundbreaking 1971 feminist essay Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists? left on every seat. That treatise on art history and the patriarchy became a key part of the show, its title used as a slogan on a Breton T-shirt worn by the first model.

Twice as much Trump? Twitter doubles its character limit on tweets

The US president’s favorite social media platform has increased the allowable character limit from 140 to 280 after research found frustration among users

Twitter has doubled the character limit on tweets to allow its users to convey more meaning or emotion – or, in the case of Donald Trump, more elaborate war threats to North Korea.

“This is a small change, but a big move for us. 140 was an arbitrary choice based on the 160-character SMS limit,” said chief executive Jack Dorsey, announcing the update on Tuesday.

Trouble in paradise? PSG fail to defuse fallout from Cavani and Neymar spat
The Brazilian’s attempt to pull rank on his team-mate over a penalty kick against Lyon created a schism yet to be resolved despite a team-bonding meal which ‘was as animated as a wake’

As club statements go, the 19 words Paris Saint-Germain released to the newspaper Le Parisien on Monday to deny a claim that Edinson Cavani had been offered a €1m bonus to step aside from penalty duties in favour of the world-record signing, Neymar, was pretty extraordinary. “PSG formally denies reports which say Cavani would abandon penalties in exchange for the automatic payment of a bonus,” it read.

Trouble in paradise? It certainly seems that way. Just 50 days after PSG’s president, Nasser al-Khelaifi, predicted the €222m transfer of the Brazil forward from Barcelona “will bring a very positive energy to this club”, the atmosphere at the Parc des Princes has already turned decidedly sour as they prepare to face Bayern Munich in their Champions League group on Wednesday.

Fifa and Uefa accused of being ‘enablers’ of tax evasion in football by MEPs
• European Parliament commission criticises Barcelona over Messi campaign
• Desire to evade tax described as an ‘epidemic’ by Football Leaks journalist

Members of a European Parliament inquiry has accused Fifa and Uefa officials of being “enablers” of a corrupt system that permits players and agents to avoid paying tax, with Barcelona’s social media campaign after Lionel Messi’s conviction for tax fraud described by one MEP as “immoral”.

Part of the European Parliament’s Committee of Inquiry into money laundering, tax avoidance and tax evasion (Pana), the hearing has been prompted by some of the accusations detailed by the website Football Leaks, which has alleged that various players and managers have hidden tens of millions of euros in tax havens around the world.

England chase 357 to beat West Indies: fourth ODI – live!

2nd over: England 14-0 (Roy 12, Bairstow 1) Jason Holder shares the new ball, and Roy tucks him into the leg side for four. After a desperate summer in international cricket, he looks more like the dominant Roy of old.

“What do you think of the Ashes squad then?” says Andrew Benton.

1st over: England 9-0 (Roy 8, Bairstow 1) England will probably need Jason Roy to go off like a pacemaker in a if they are to win this match. He has the capacity to score 70 off 50 balls, something like that, and he starts confidently by taking eight off hi first three deliveries from Jerome Taylor.

“Evin Lewis may well have hit the highest score in an ODI at the Oval, but England have the person whose record he just broke opening for them,” says Stephen Brown. “So that, and his general need to show he should still be considered a force to be reckoned with, should get Roy’s arm’s pumping early on. Now would also be a good time for Morgan to get back in form. I put England as second favourites at the moment, but not by much.”

Ben Stokes named in Ashes squad despite broken finger and arrest

• Trevor Bayliss brands players ‘unprofessional’ over outing in early hours
• James Vince and Gary Ballance recalled as Tom Westley misses out

Ben Stokes will continue as England’s vice-captain for the time being after being named in their Ashes Test squad despite his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm and a broken finger on his right hand.

England coach Trevor Bayliss, however, has described the circumstances which led to Stokes’ arrest in Bristol in the early hours of Monday as “very unprofessional” - on his part and that of other players also understood to have been out late celebrating England’s Royal London Series win over West Indies.

Thousands of Qatar World Cup workers ‘subjected to life-threatening heat’

• Human Rights Watch says hundreds of workers dying every year
• Statutory work breaks in summer midday hours not sufficient

Many thousands of migrant workers on construction sites in Qatar, including those building stadiums for the 2022 World Cup, are being subjected to potentially life-threatening heat and humidity, according to new research on the extreme summer conditions in the Gulf. Hundreds of workers are dying every year, the campaign group Human Rights Watch (HRW) has said in a strong statement, but they claim that the Qatar authorities have refused to make necessary information public or adequately investigate the deaths, which could be caused by labouring in the region’s fierce climate.

HRW argues that millions of workers are in jeopardy, including those in the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries – Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – because statutory work breaks imposed during summer midday hours do not protect them sufficiently. An analysis of the weather in Doha last summer has also shown that workers on World Cup construction projects were in danger, despite the more advanced system used by the tournament organiser, Humidex, which measures safety levels of heat and humidity.

Golf unlikely to follow NFL so expect a protest-free Presidents Cup | Ewan Murray

New Jersey’s Liberty National course does not seem a likely venue for anti-Donald Trump statements, although because of the recent protests there will be extra focus on what is largely a pointless event

It is the perfect or imperfect storm, depending on one’s outlook. The Presidents Cup does not create a flicker in the wider golfing consciousness through any given year, but this week focus will be intense.

The swell of sporting protest last weekend ordinarily would not resonate much in golf, commonly an individual sport, but this time it’s different for a tournament normally afforded little status or interest. A competition bearing the name of the president, which Donald Trump is even likely to attend, will see United States flags raised and an anthem sung when the opening ceremony takes place on Thursday.

Why women's golf could desperately use an Andy Murray

Women’s golf could sorely use an outspoken crusader like Murray, who embodies what a male advocate for women’s sports should be

Last week Andy Murray wrote an op-ed for the BBC highlighting the reasons why he’s so outspoken on behalf of women’s tennis. My heart, along with other women in sports, swooned over this, and in particular, my heart skipped a beat when he wrote, “Anyone who has spent any time with any of the top women will know that they make those same sacrifices and are as determined and committed to winning as any of the top men on the tour.”

Murray embodies what a male advocate for women’s sports should be. Recently he shot down a reporter when he incorrectly stated that Sam Querrey was the first US player to reach the semi-finals of Wimbledon since 2009, to which Murray replied, “Male player.”

Chelsea’s Antonio Conte set for uneasy tunnel reunion with Diego Costa
• New Atlético Madrid striker plans to say goodbye to team-mates
• Costa completed move to Wanda Metropolitano stadium on Tuesday

Antonio Conte will come face to face with Diego Costa on Wednesday evening as the Spain forward, who completed his move to Atlético Madrid on Tuesday, is intending to bid farewell to his former Chelsea team-mates and staff in the tunnel at the Wanda Metropolitano ahead of the Champions League Group C game between the clubs.

The striker’s £57m return to Spain was only formalised on Tuesday evening ahead of the fixture at Atlético’s new home and, while Costa will not be presented to the home support on the pitch prior to kick-off, Chelsea have been led to believe he will be in the tunnel area before the game. Conte’s last contact with the 28-year-old was to send him a text message earlier this summer informing Costa that he had no future at Chelsea, with the player subsequently refusing to return from his home in Brazil and accusing the Premier League champions of treating him like a “criminal”.

Saúl Ñíguez: ‘I was tired of it all and I said: Doc, just take the kidney out’

As Atlético Madrid prepare to face Chelsea their midfielder recalls how he almost put his obsession with football before his health until receiving some sage advice

“Doc, just take it out. I’ve got another one.” Saúl Ñíguez had made up his mind. He had had enough. He had spent months in pain and discomfort, urinating blood, his kidney was not working properly, there was no end in sight, no guarantees, and all he wanted to do was all he had ever wanted to do: play football. If that meant removing a kidney, then that is what he was going to do. Nothing else mattered. Until one day Atlético Madrid’s assistant coach Germán El Mono Burgos – a former goalkeeper, a rock singer and a great, big beloved bear of a man – looked him in the eye and offered his advice. “And then I saw,” Saúl says.

Listening made sense: Burgos spoke from experience. When he was diagnosed with cancer one Thursday in 2003, he asked doctors to wait until the Monday to remove the tumour as Atlético had a game that Sunday, but they insisted on operating immediately. Twelve years on, a clash with Bayer Leverkusen’s Kyriakos Papadopoulos on his Champions League debut in February 2015 resulted in Saúl being rushed to hospital, where Atlético’s president described his kidney as “destroyed”. “The worst thing,” Saúl recalls, “was lying on the stretcher and seeing my dad cry. I said: ‘Dad, it’s OK; I’m a toro, a bull, I can take this.’” Yet there were tough times ahead.

Manchester United need to stay respectful at CSKA Moscow, says Mourinho
• Champions League group game will be tough, manager warns
• United travel without Fellaini, Jones and Valencia

José Mourinho believes the key to Manchester United beating CSKA Moscow in Wednesday’s Champions League game and maintaining their fine start to the season is to be dominant while staying humble and respecting the home side.

United are unbeaten in eight matches this season, winning seven including Saturday’s 1-0 win at Southampton. In that outing they had to defend for prolonged passages having overrun all of their previous opponents apart from Stoke City, with whom they only drew 2-2.

James Blake police disciplinary trial decision may not be made public

Officers’ disciplinary records are secret under New York state law, city officials say. Blake said he expects to be told the outcome by the police watchdog group that brought the case, but it’s not a right.

Toronto, Toulouse and Perpignan? How the Championship went cosmopolitan

The part-time players in the Championship will need to keep their passports handy next year – and that’s before more clubs arrive from across the Atlantic

By Gavin Willacy for No Helmets Required, part of the Guardian Sport Network

On Saturday evening we will know whether Catalans Dragons or Leigh Centurions will be playing in the Championship next season. The losers of the Million Pound Game (that name – eurgh!) will go down and the odds are on a spineless Dragons team failing to play to their potential at a hostile Leigh Sports Village. That will be a great shame for Catalans and French rugby as a whole, but there are positives amid the gloom. It would mean two derbies with Toulouse Olympique and both clubs would be expected to challenge Toronto Wolfpack and London Broncos for promotion.

And that, in a nutshell, is the other problem. Part-time clubs in the Championship will have to travel to all four of those exciting destinations, flung far from the M62. Throw in either Barrow or Whitehaven – who meet in the League 1 play-off final on Sunday – and the financial impact on clubs such as Swinton, Batley, Sheffield, Featherstone is considerable. But they better get used to it, as there could soon be away trips to the USA and Ireland on the schedule, too.

Benjamin Mendy to see knee specialist as Manchester City fear extended absence
• France left-back injured his knee in 5-0 win over Crystal Palace
• Mendy to visit Dr Ramon Cugat on Thursday in Barcelona

Manchester City face a serious blow as fears grow at the club that Benjamin Mendy faces a lengthy absence due to a knee injury.

Pep Guardiola’s team have made an impressive start to the season after winning eight of their nine matches so far, with Mendy featuring in five of the victories. Yet the France defender was forced off from Saturday’s 5-0 win over Crystal Palace and despite City initially being optimistic that Mendy’s problem was not serious, the left-back will now fly to Barcelona to see specialist doctor Ramon Cugat on Thursday.

RB Leipzig’s Werner ‘feeling better’ after Besiktas substitution due to crowd noise
• Germany striker complained of dizziness during 2-0 defeat
• Ralph Hasenhüttl: ‘Such an atmosphere was too much for some’

Timo Werner is “feeling better” after he asked to be substituted due to the intense noise created by the home supporters during RB Leipzig’s Champions League defeat to Besiktas on Tuesday.

The Germany striker was withdrawn after 32 minutes of the 2-0 defeat which left the Bundesliga side bottom of Group G, having earlier asked for ear plugs in a bid to help him cope with the loud atmosphere inside the Vodafone Arena. Leipzig later revealed that Werner had complained of suffering from “circulatory problems” and dizziness, with the 21-year-old now said to be “feeling better” by the club.

Football transfer rumours: Real Madrid planning swap deal for Dele Alli?

Today’s tittle-tattle is a man in motion

The Mill is only one of an assortment of hacks weeping salt tears at the news that Diego Costa’s £57m move to Atlético Madrid is finally done, bringing the curtain down on one of the great interminable transfer sagas of our age. Chelsea will look to swiftly move on from Costa’s departure by tying Eden Hazard to an eye-watering £300,000-per-week deal.

Should their long-term target stay at Stamford Bridge, Real Madrid suits will hop on the London Overground to Tottenham and try to prise Dele Alli away with a swap deal involving fringe player Mateo Kovacic and, presumably, several bags of cash. Real Madrid also like the cut of US tyro Christian Pulisic’s jib – whatever Alexi Lalas may say – and have the Dortmund winger next on their wish-list.

So long, Nigel Farage. America deserves you | Nesrine Malik
The former Ukip leader is trying to break the US in typically putrid fashion – it makes perfect sense for a man raging against the dying of the light at home

There aren’t many things that would make you feel sorry for Steve Bannon, but being introduced this week in Alabama by Nigel Farage as “the greatest political thinker in the western hemisphere” is one of them. If Farage, winner of no parliamentary election, player of no role in Brexit negotiations and head of no political parties thought I was a political genius, I’d keep that quiet. Steve, you were Darth Vader, the genius architect of the Trump victory and fawned over by the media, the brains behind the Muslim ban, the alt-right’s alt-knight. Now you are being introduced by a man who not only has never managed to win a seat in parliament, but also has failed to so many times he has become a sort of superlative metaphor for loss – victory’s anti-matter. There was something awfully David Brenty about it all – two has-beens still trying to stretch their relevance to the absolute limit by making cameo appearances at fringe events ranting at the establishment that has revoked their access.

In our troubled world, disaster movies are becoming obsolete | Ryan Gilbey
Perhaps it’s time for disaster film-makers to address why our world is so messed up, rather than imagining how much worse it could be

One of the timeless functions of cinematic storytelling is the way it allows us to explore in safety the fears that impinge occasionally on our daily lives. But that dynamic alters when reality itself is saturated in dread and anxiety. The merest glance at the headlines produces enough plots to furnish an entire studio’s slate of dystopian science-fiction movies.

We can topple Ireland’s ludicrous abortion law, but it’s not a done deal | Emer O’Toole
The referendum to ‘repeal the 8th’ is a reward for brave campaigning by Irish women. But unlike the same-sex marriage vote, we face huge political hostility

It is 34 years since the Irish people voted to amend the constitution to designate the right to life of the “unborn” as equal to that of a pregnant woman, effectively banning abortion. And for 34 years Irish feminists and their allies have been campaigning to end the shame and suffering that have been the fruits of our holy eighth amendment.

Brexiters are being naive over US trade. Bombardier is a taste of things to come | Simon Tilford
Outside the EU’s protective umbrella, Brexit Britain would be at the mercy of strong-arm US trade tactics

The EU and the US have been squabbling about support for their respective aircraft makers, Boeing and Airbus, for decades. Despite this, the US has never resorted to such heavy-handed tactics with Airbus and the EU as it now has with Canada’s Bombardier, placing thousands of jobs at the firm’s Northern Ireland factory in doubt. And for good reason: the US would have too much to lose from such action. The EU is a big market with a powerful trade authority, and US producers are too dependent on the EU market for the US to risk retaliation. This case gives us a real taste of how the UK will be treated in negotiations over a US-UK trade deal post-Brexit, and how vulnerable the country will be.

Disputes between governments over subsidies to aircraft makers are commonplace. Given the huge barriers to entry into the industry state support is indispensable. Boeing gets its subsidies through US defence spending – which helps to finance the company’s development costs – whereas Airbus has tended to benefit from more direct government assistance. The Canadian government has extended support to Bombardier to develop its new C-series regional jet, leading the US Department of Commerce to claim that the company is selling the jets in the US market at below cost. Both the Canadian and UK governments claim the support they have extended to the firm complies with World Trade Organisation rules. Despite this, the US has taken punitive steps against its two closest allies, imposing tariffs of 219% on the aircraft.

We can't hear Colin Kaepernick any more. He's being drowned out by noise | Ameer Hasan Loggins

The quarterback ignited a storm by kneeling during the national anthem. He wanted to communicate a message but, sadly, many still refuse to hear it

Colin Kaepernick is everywhere. Like an icon, he is freeze-framed stoically kneeling for everyone to see. We see his image on stickers, T-shirts, graffiti and posters. It’s on magazine covers, television shows and social media sites. Oddly, the more we see Kaepernick’s likeness, the less we hear his message.

Colin Kaepernick first kneeled during a pre-game national anthem in 2016. His reasoning was simple: “[I’m] not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

If we don't focus on why people overeat, we will never solve obesity

Emotional, physical or sexual abuse can lie at root of weight problems in later life and, unless targeted, taxes on food types will be cruel to those who self-medicate

• Outclassed: The Secret Life of Inequality is our new column about class. Read all articles here

Trinity Wallace-Ellis first recalls associating food with consolation when she was about eight. Her heroin-addicted father could explode in violence, sometimes beating her and her seven younger sisters. Afterwards, he was always regretful – and Trinity would come home from school to find a refrigerator filled with cakes and pies.

“From that point, I think, is when I equated food with comfort and food as a way of making things right,” she says.

Don’t let the rich get even richer on the assets we all share | George Monbiot

It’s time for communities to seize back control of resources upon which their prosperity depends

Are you a statist or a free marketeer? Do you believe that intervention should be minimised or that state ownership and regulation should be expanded? This is our central political debate. But it is based on a mistaken premise.

Both sides seem to agree that state and market are the only sectors worth discussing: politics should move one way or the other along this linear scale. In fact, there are four major economic sectors: the market, the state, the household and the commons. The neglect of the last two by both neoliberals and social democrats has created many of the monstrosities of our times.

Brevity is the soul of Twitter. We don't need 280 characters for that | Dom Knight

Twitter’s 140-character limit forces its users to be funnier. It can’t compete with Facebook and shouldn’t try

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump’s favourite social network for conducting diplomacy and insulting NFL players announced a major change.

Twitter is currently testing an increase in the character limit, allowing some users to type in up to 280 characters instead of the usual 140. And that was enough to inspire Twitter’s ever-vocal users to vent, 140 characters at a time – or, for the few lucky testers, 280.

Why does obesity cause diabetes? You asked Google – here’s the answer | Thomas Barber
Every day millions of internet users ask Google life’s most difficult questions, big and small. Our writers answer some of the commonest queries

‘Cause” is a strong word. It means that A results in B happening. Causality is also surprisingly difficult to prove. Most medical studies only show association between A and B, while causality often remains speculative and frustratingly elusive. Obesity and diabetes are no exception.

There are many types of diabetes. All are unified by elevated levels of blood sugar. Type 1 diabetes accounts for less than 10% of cases and results from autoimmune destruction of the beta cells in the pancreas, which produce and release insulin. (In an autoimmune process, antibodies that normally target and fight infection instead target one’s own cells). Type 3c (secondary) diabetes can occur when there has been destruction of the pancreatic beta cells through some other process, such as excessive alcohol, inflammation or surgical resection.

Exclusive: Multiple women fighting Uber in US sexual assault cases say the company turned its back on them, as judge calls its record with police ‘horrific’

When Uber refused to comply with a warrant in a California sexual assault case, police, prosecutors and the judge were bewildered.

Lt Brian South told the Guardian that in more than 15 years on the job, he had never seen anyone so brazenly defy a judge’s order for records. A prosecutor testified that Uber was actively preventing law enforcement from protecting riders from violence, and a judge attacked the ride-share corporation for a “horrific” pattern of ignoring police, describing its typical response as “give as little as possible, be as uncooperative as possible”.

US decision to slap tariffs on Canadian-owned aircraft maker threatens to sour relations between London and Washington

Theresa May has said she is “bitterly disappointed” by a US Department of Commerce’s verdict that would lead to a 219% tariff imposed on sales to US airline Delta of Bombardier’s C-Series passenger jet, which supports at least 1,000 jobs in Northern Ireland.

The shooting took place in the valet parking area of the Loews Hollywood hotel, and left Young Dolph – real name Adolph Thornton Jr – requiring emergency surgery. LAPD detective Meghan Aguilar told reporters that the shooting occurred after an argument with three men, “which escalated to a physical fight. At one point, Young Dolph was knocked to the ground. And then one of the suspects pulled out a handgun and began shooting at him.”

Why are North Korea's leaders specifically threatening US bombers?

In response to Trump, Ri Yong-ho threatened to ‘shoot down strategic bombers’, showing fear of US bombardment and a potential for wider conflict

After weeks of tension over North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclear capability, the latest verbal exchanges between Washington and Pyongyang evoke a time, more than six decades ago, when the regime was at the mercy of conventional weapons.

Every North Korean schoolchild is taught, erroneously, that the US started the Korean war; but they also learn, correctly, that their nemesis was responsible for laying waste to dozens of towns and cities from the air during the 1950-53 conflict, a fact rarely reported in the US media at the time.

'You’re talked to as if you are a junior' – employees on workplace racism

Black, Asian and minority ethnic people are still hugely under-represented in senior roles at work. And this glass ceiling is confirmed by the raw and revealing experiences of the Guardian readers who contacted us

Esther is a working mother with a high-level qualification and 20 years of experience in her industry. But she believes her career has plateaued – and has no doubt as to the principal reason for this.

“I totally believe diversity is dead,” Esther wrote in response to the Guardian’s request for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) workers’ experiences of office life. In a phone call, she expanded on that comment: “A lot of black graduates come in and they don’t last long, because they don’t get mentored. One of them didn’t have a car and he was taking two hours to get in. It was: ‘Oh, he’s lazy.’ People use that to alienate the black graduates.”

Drinking and thinking: raise a glass to Glasgow's plays, pies and pints

Since 2004, a boozy lunchtime institution has launched careers, staged 40 new plays a year and changed the landscape of Scottish theatre

It defies all the rules of theatre marketing. Scarcely past midday on a Monday lunchtime, a full 45 minutes before curtain up, the queue for the box office is already snaking on to the road. Inside Òran Mór, a spacious pub-cum-performance venue in Glasgow’s West End, the line of ticket holders is even longer. They are here for A Play, a Pie and a Pint, a lunchtime series launched by David MacLennan in 2004 and not so much a success as a phenomenon.

Nobody could have predicted its popularity back then, but today is typical. They line up like this six days a week for 40 plays a year (plus summer and winter pantomimes), almost all of them new with just a handful of classical adaptations. The tally to date is in excess of 400, making A Play, a Pie and a Pint a bedrock of the Scottish theatre industry. And it is not short on ambition. In its first 13 years, the shoestring organisation has programmed plays by Gregory Burke, Zinnie Harris, David Harrower, David Greig, Liz Lochhead, Bill Paterson and Simon Stephens, not to mention fielding actors from Robbie Coltrane to Mel Giedroyc. In its current month-long collaboration with Edinburgh’s Traverse, it has lined up work by Ian Pattison, creator of Rab C Nesbitt, and Karen Dunbar, star of Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female Shakespeare trilogy at London’s Donmar Warehouse, along with fellow actors-turned-playwrights Julia Taudevin and Anita Vettesse. In past seasons, its influence has stretched to the National Theatre of Scotland, Aberdeen Performing Arts and the Sherman theatre, Cardiff.

Blurred porn and Mars in 3D: the unsettling visions of Thomas Ruff

From gender-swap portraits to blown-up images of internet porn and 3D craters on Mars, his photographs are perfect for the age of image overload. As a major Whitechapel retrospective opens, we profile an artist always ahead of the game

‘Photography is a base passion that has taken hold of every continent and every section of the population,” wrote the Austrian author Thomas Bernhard in 1988. “Everyone wants to be portrayed as good-looking and happy, when they are in fact ugly and unhappy.”

How banana skins turned on the lights in Lagos ... and then turned them off again

For a while it looked as if a plan to turn fruit waste into electricity might bring light for a giant Nigerian market – but then, like so many other power plans, nothing happened. When will renewables really come on line?

Two kids run across the road shouting, “Thief! Thief!” as a big rat races away into a nearby hole for refuge. It has rained and the drains are clogged with waste: the water pools on the road and fills the potholes along the thoroughfare leading to Lagos’s famous Ikosi fruit market.

One of the largest of its kind in the city, the market is a popular spot for trading vegetables and fruit like pineapples, bananas and plantains. But here, like most parts of Nigeria, there is rarely a steady power supply – according to the World Bank, 75 million people in a country of 186 million don’t have access to electricity.

Queuing all day for a three-minute call: reuniting families torn apart by Boko Haram | Ruth Maclean

For Nigerians displaced from Lake Chad by the Islamist insurgents, a weekly conversation on a borrowed phone is the best chance of finding missing relatives

Hawa Adamu Bello yells excitedly into the basic mobile phone that has just been handed to her. She is through to her sister-in-law. The women haven’t seen each other since Boko Haram militants attacked their town on the Nigerian shores of Lake Chad more than two years ago.

Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah,” she says, giving the Muslim answer to all the questions about how she is, how things are, how her husband is, as quickly as possible, balancing the need for speed with the risk of being unforgivably rude.

Protest and patriotism: a visit to the original star-spangled banner

At the Smithsonian, Americans reflect on the battered flag that inspired the anthem – in the spotlight once again as the president rails against NFL protesters

It is two centuries old, spans 30ft by 34ft and has suffered the effects of age and being snipped for souvenir hunters. The original star-spangled banner, the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the song that would become the US national anthem, lies horizontally at a 10-degree angle of elevation in a low light chamber at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington. Visitors file past silently and reverently as if beholding a religious relic.

“Patriotism: love of country,” Marcia Walker, 71, a retired nurse from Granite City, Illinois, said during a visit on Monday when asked about the meaning of the flag. “It’s not just for the military but it’s a feeling each and every American should have for our justice system and our ability to love and respect each other.”

David Attenborough on the scourge of the oceans: 'I remember being told plastic doesn't decay, it's wonderful'

His sequel to The Blue Planet will focus not only on the marvels of sea life but also the threats to it. The naturalist explains why plastic pollution, climate change and overpopulation are problems too urgent to be left to ecologists

David Attenborough vividly remembers, nearly 80 years on, his first encounter with one of the worst scourges of the planet. He was a schoolboy. “I remember my headmaster, who was also my science master, saying: ‘Boys, we’ve entered a new era! We’ve entered, we’ll be proud to say, the plastic era. And what is so wonderful about this is we’ve used all our scientific ingenuity to make sure that it’s virtually indestructible. It doesn’t decay, you know, it’s wonderful.’”

Attenborough lets the last word hang in the air, eyebrows and hands raised. Then the hands fall. “Now we dump thousands of tonnes of it, every year, into the sea, and it has catastrophic effects.”

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

Fight to protect natural resources has become too dangerous in the face of violence from state forces, private security groups and state-sponsored vigilantes, say groups from 29 countries across Africa, Latin America and Asia

Land rights defenders from 29 countries have written to the UN asking it to act against violent corporate and state-sponsored groups which they say are threatening their lives and trashing the environment.

Thirty nine grassroots groups from Africa, Latin America and Asia, many of whose leaders have been killed or forced to flee for protesting the theft of land, big dams mines and forest destruction, say their fight to protect natural resources is becoming too dangerous.

'They lied': Bolivia's untouchable Amazon lands at risk once more | Myles McCormick

When Ovidio Teco’s Amazon homeland was declared “untouchable” by the Bolivian government in 2011, his war had been won.

The concerns of people like him had been listened to: their beautiful and ancient land would not be carved in two by a 190-mile highway.

'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.

Tributes paid to 'silent hero' wildlife conservationist killed in Tanzania

Government officials and fellow conservationists paid tribute to Wayne Lotter at a special memorial yesterday

Hundreds of people gathered at Baobab Village in Dar es Salaam to pay tribute to Wayne Lotter on Tuesday evening, as tributes continued to come in from around the world.

Lotter, 51, was shot and killed last week while travelling in a taxi from the airport to his hotel on Dar es Salaam’s Msasani Peninsula. Lotter, who co-founded PAMS Foundation, a conservation nonprofit, was responsible for supporting anti-poaching efforts that had led to the arrests of more than 2000 ivory poachers and traffickers, and had taken down several key poaching syndicates in the country. He had received numerous death threats since starting the organization in 2009.

Three more rangers killed in a deadly month around the world for wildlife defenders

Wildlife protection has become an increasingly dangerous business as rangers face armed gunmen and poachers

Three rangers have been killed in separate countries in a deadly month for wildlife defenders.

A ranger at Serra da Capivara national park, in Brazil’s north-eastern Piaui region, was killed by hunters on 18 August. Edilson Aparecido dos Santos and two other colleagues were patrolling the park when they were ambushed by a group of four armed men who are believed to have been hunting in the park illegally. Dos Santos was killed in the shootout that followed, while the other two rangers were injured.

A police insider has told the Guardian that the killers of Wayne Lotter may have been following him

Police believe Wayne Lotter’s killer may have followed and targeted the conservationist when he was shot on Wednesday, according to inside sources.

Lotter was stopped and then fatally shot while travelling by taxi from Dar es Salaam airport to a hotel. He had been working in Tanzania for many years, exposing and jailing wildlife poachers and traffickers, and he had received a number of death threats. Tanzania’s director for criminal investigation, Robert Boaz, said a murder investigation was underway.

Another country: can Shania Twain's new album prove her staying power?

She once set the template for country to pop crossovers, but 15 years since her last album, the landscape in Nashville has shifted, leaving her behind

Shania Twain’s team said in her early years she had chosen the name Shania because it translated to “on my way” in Ojibwe, the language of her late stepfather’s Native American tribe. Though Twain’s biographer later noted that there’s no analogue for “Shania” in Ojibwe, it was an exceptional bit of branding: Twain’s narrative is one of rare upward mobility from hardscrabble beginnings to first-name-only fame.

Why do we run until it hurts? Researchers might have some answers

During the Ultra Gobi in 2016, I felt more aware of my own body as it gradually disintegrated. According to scientists, this might be partly why I enjoyed it

Why would anyone want to run 400km across a desert? It’s a good question and one that I confronted last year when I completed the Ultra Gobi, a single stage, self-navigated 250-mile footrace in China. This year I face an even harder question: Why would anyone do it again?

In moderation, running improves both your health and physique; in extremes, it does quite the opposite. The feet blister and swell to the point where multiple pairs of shoes in ascending sizes are required. Toenails turn black and fall off or, worse, fill with fluid and require puncturing. Some runners even choose to strike pre-emptively and have theirs surgically removed.

No ticket required: see top art for free at Venice’s San Giorgio Maggiore

A short vaporetto ride from the Doge’s Palace, the island of San Giorgio Maggiore is not only a lovely landmark, but a setting for free major art shows, especially during the current Biennale

Across the water from the Doge’s Palace and Saint Mark’s Square, the island of San Giorgio is an integral part of the classic Venetian vista. The white facade and tall bell tower of Palladio’s majestic 16th-century church were immortalised in paintings by Canaletto, Monet and Turner. The church is one of the few in Venice that does not charge an entry fee, and inside there are paintings by Tintoretto – including his Last Supper, painted in 1592–94 – Jacopo Bassano and Palma Giovane.

But Palladio’s masterpiece is only one of many surprising free attractions here. San Giorgo is the headquarters of the Cini foundation, whose arts centre, next to the church, hosts regular, free, exhibitions.

Why do models always look so glum? Well, they’ve got good reason to
