At 5am, the day is black, and resounds with the steady drum of rain. My husband Rich is getting ready for work. He oils his leather gloves and fills a Thermos. He’ll spend a 10-hour day in the downpour: tramping through thorny salmonberry and wading through the roaring creeks.

We live in the Oregon Coast Range, a region that’s been in steady economic decline since the sawmills began shutting down in the late 1980s. Before Rich got this job we were living hand to mouth. Now things are looking up. It won’t make us wealthy, but Rich has scored one of the best jobs in our remote neck of the woods.

Back to front: why switching queues will get you nowhere faster

Harvard Business School finds that people are four times more likely to quit a line if there is no-one else waiting behind them

No-one relishes the moment. You are stuck at the back of a queue and as those in other lines sail past and get served, the time to decide arrives. Do you hold your nerve and stay put, switch to another line in the hope it moves faster, or give up altogether?

The pressing question has now been tackled by research at Harvard Business School. It found that when a person finds themselves at the end of a queue, they can make decisions that swiftly backfire. And it is all down to our aversion to being last.

What is the best Christmas movie? You asked Google – here’s the answer | Lucinda Everett
Every day millions of internet users ask Google life’s most difficult questions, big and small. Our writers answer some of the commonest queries

Ah, the eternal festive question. The one that shakes loved ones out of the cosy harmony of a turkey coma and into a sherry-fuelled yelling match.

It’s no great surprise that we’re so fiercely protective of our favourites. Often they are bound up with our happiest memories – childhood Christmas Eves waiting for Santa; Sundays on friends’ sofas sipping mulled wine; crying at sentimental slush with the one that magicked your cynicism away. They mean a lot.

José Mourinho has a point when he says Manchester United are not a big team

The manager’s complaints over a lack of spending are amusing but there is no doubt Manchester City’s rise has made the job of bringing success back to Old Trafford more difficult

In terms of attention-grabbing headlines and photographs of Manchester United’s manager looking less than delighted with life, José Mourinho truly is the Christmas gift that keeps on giving. Yet amusing as it was to hear the erstwhile Special One complaining that his club have not yet spent enough to compete with the likes of Burnley and Leicester, it must be conceded that Mourinho has a point when he talks of a difference between big clubs and big teams.

United are a big club, he suggested, but not yet a big team. They are trying to become a big team, though that is actually quite difficult when you have already been a big team once and are now trying to put the pieces of the jigsaw back together after a couple of previous managers have had a go.

Lifeless MCG pitch allows re-energised England to rise from the dead | Adam Collins
The absence of Mitchell Starc and illness of Pat Cummins were mitigating factors but after a damning day for Australia at least some fingers should be pointing at 22 yards of Melbourne blandness

If, as the Libertines sang, there is no more distressing sight than an Englishman in a baseball cap then surely there is no sadder image than an Australian seamer operating with the wicketkeeper up to the stumps on the second day of a home Test.

But don’t blame Mitchell Marsh. Sure, he’s far from hitting the speed gun’s high notes since his return from shoulder surgery – but this is the story of the placid Melbourne pitch. In all the enthusiasm about the best-attended and most anticipated fixture on the calendar, the 22 yards that matter most don’t get anywhere near the scrutiny of other venues around the country.

Cosmin Lambru: ‘Speed is one of my qualities but imagine how I’d run with a new arm’
The striker is defying the odds in Romania at Petrolul Ploiesti, playing with a prosthesis after losing his left hand in a truck accident as a child. The teenager hopes to get a lighter prosthesis to take his game to greater heights

Petrolul Ploiesti are a club in a hurry. The Yellow Wolves’ 3-1 first-round defeat of Liverpool in the 1966 European Cup is still cherished in the small industrial city 40 miles north of Bucharest where they play. These, though, are harder times. After going bankrupt two years ago and losing their first-division status, Petrolul were re-formed in the fourth tier. If one of Romania’s most prominent clubs are to meet their target of returning to the top flight by 2019, they have no time to waste.

In their 19-year-old striker Cosmin Lambru, Petrolul have a young wolf leading the charge. But there is more to Lambru’s story than that of a player helping to revive a storied football club. When Lambru came on in Petrolul’s cup win against CS Mioveni in October, his appearance caused quite a stir. A white bandage on his left forearm masked a terrible truth: a plastic prosthesis replacing his hand.

Vitaly Mutko steps down as head of Russia World Cup organising committee
• Mutko dogged by allegations of involvement in Russia’s doping program
• Two days ago Mutko suspended his role as head of country’s football union

Vitaly Mutko, the embattled head of the organising committee for the 2018 World Cup, has agreed to step down after being repeatedly cited in a series of reports exposing the country’s systematic doping regime.

Mutko will be replaced by Alexei Sorokin, already chief executive of Russia 2018 and the man who took his place on the Fifa council. It reduces the pressure on football’s world governing body, which had been urged to remove Mutko from his role at Russia 2018 in the light of overwhelming evidence to suggest he was not fit to occupy the position.

I escaped from the Grenfell Tower fire – but now we face a new trauma | Natasha Elcock
Theresa May was wrong to refuse to allow a panel including survivors to take part in the inquiry. If the authorities didn’t listen before, what hope do we have now?

It’s when disaster strikes that you need the state the most. On 14 June, we in Grenfell Tower suffered an inferno. I escaped from the 11th floor with my partner and my six-year-old daughter. Over the next few days, as the emergency services continued to dampen the fire and recover our loved ones, we waited for help to come and for the authorities to tell us what to do.

But the state didn’t come. Instead, it was volunteers who arrived with food and clothes, and it was they who helped us to find places to stay and search hospitals for our family members.

Trump’s pernicious attempt to starve the UN of cash could yet backfire | Mark Seddon
Thanks to ‘America First’, the UN’s annual budget is down. But Palestinians and the United Nations itself could benefit in the longer term

Just ahead of the announcement by the UN that its annual budget is to be cut by 5%, at a time of almost unprecedented global humanitarian need and increasingly bitter and intractable conflicts, the Donald Trump administration revealed that the slash in spending was almost entirely down to its decision to hold back on some $285m in contributions. This is a Trumpian Christmas present, announced as collective punishment for the member states who voted against his incendiary decision to recognise Jerusalem as the “capital of Israel”.

Why do archive files on Britain’s colonial past keep going missing? | Siobhan Fenton
Around 1,000 files have disappeared while ‘on loan’ to the government. This sort of accident is happening too often for comfort

The National Archives are home to more than 11m documents, many of them covering the most disturbing periods of Britain’s colonial past. The uncomfortable truths revealed in previously classified government files have proved invaluable to those seeking to understand this country’s history or to expose past injustices.

It is deeply concerning, therefore, to discover that about 1,000 files have gone missing after being removed by civil servants. Officially, the archives describe them as “misplaced while on loan to a government department”.

The cruelty of legal aid cuts for abused women is now undeniable | Deborah Orr
Litigation in person is emotional, expensive and largely unworkable for domestic abuse victims. This flagship policy of austerity has to be reversed

Financial restrictions on access to justice are always problematic, but further restrictions on legal aid for victims of domestic violence, introduced in 2012, were particularly egregious. Just how much hardship these cuts have caused in the past five years has been made plain in new figures from the Ministry of Justice.

In the first nine months of this year, 3,234 alleged victims faced at least one family court hearing without representation – more than double the number in 2012. The situation had become so clearly awful that campaigners succeeded in getting some restrictions lifted. As of January, evidence of abuse occurring after five years have passed will be admissible, and the evidence of support groups will be allowed. Also, a wider review was launched in October into the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act of 2012 – legislation that removed more than £350m from the legal aid budget, leading to what Amnesty has described as a “two-tier justice system”.

In France, a woman has been dismissed for her anti-racism. Where is our égalité? | Maboula Soumahoro
The removal of feminist Rokhaya Diallo from a national council after rightwing complaints reveals much about who is allowed to speak in France today

In recent days France has been rocked by controversy. First came the government’s decision to create a 30-member commission called CNNum, the national digital council. The task of this commission is to advise French president Emmanuel Macron on new, more inclusive digital policy.

Then an open letter surfaced, written by an MP from a major rightwing political party and addressed to the French prime minister. The letter strongly disapproved of the appointment of two members of the commission: journalist Rokhaya Diallo and rapper Hicham Kochman, also known as Axiom.

John McDonnell has said the UK is in the grip of a personal debt crisis with levels of unsecured borrowing predicted to hit a record of £19,000 per household by the end of this parliament.

The shadow chancellor said the increase in debt, to more than £14,000 per household this year, was alarming.

Israeli minister plans to name Western Wall train station after Trump

Israel’s transport minister is pushing ahead with a controversial plan to extend Jerusalem’s soon-to-open high-speed rail line to the Western Wall, where he wants to name a station after the US president, Donald Trump.

Yisrael Katz’s proposal for the “Donald John Trump” station, which is in the initial planning stage, involves constructing two underground stations and excavating more than two miles (3km) of tunnel 50 metres beneath central Jerusalem and under the politically and historically sensitive Old City.

'We don’t have time to wait and see': air pollution protesters resort to direct action

As the green man appeared on the pedestrian crossing a couple of dozen people dressed in Santa hats and tinsel shuffled into the road at one of London’s busiest roundabouts.

Moments later, in the early morning gloom, a banner was unfurled and the small group of pensioners, students and workers – armed with home-made road signs and leaflets – had blocked both lanes of the dual carriageway.

Australian woman escapes death sentence for drug trafficking in Malaysia

An Australian woman has been found not guilty of drug trafficking in Malaysia, a charge that carries a mandatory death sentence.

On Wednesday afternoon a Malaysian judge found that Maria Elvira Pinto Exposto did not know that there were drugs in her bag when customs officials found 1.1kg of ice – a potent form of methamphetamine – in her luggage at Kuala Lumpur airport in December 2014.

Hospital PFI firms set for £190m windfall from tax cuts – study

Labour’s Stella Creasy renews calls for windfall tax on PFI operators as analysis shows firms could save £190m by 2020

Companies that built and run NHS hospitals under private finance initiative (PFI) contracts will have made around £190m in unexpected windfall profits by 2020 because of George Osborne and Philip Hammond’s cuts to corporation tax, research suggests.

Analysis by the Centre for Health and the Public Interest found that more than 100 PFI operators in the NHS collectively saved an estimated £84m between 2008 and 2015 and are due to gain another £106m between 2016 and 2020 because of the falling corporate tax rate.

'Honour' killings in Karachi shock Pakistan's largest city

Murders of teenagers show that poor communities in cities are becoming more entrenched in conservative values

The night Ghani Rehman was condemned to die, his father asked if they could share a last meal together. But Ghani excused himself, preferring to wait in his room. His sisters came to see him, and he gave them each a small token to remember him by: a plastic-wrapped mint drop.

The 18-year-old boy knew what was coming. Less than 24 hours earlier, the neighbour’s 15-year-old daughter Bakhtaja, with whom Ghani had tried to elope from Ali Brohi Goth, their poor neighbourhood of Karachi, had been tied down and electrocuted.

Science fiction or science fact – how close are we to shrinking humans?

In new film Downsizing, humans like Matt Damon’s character are shrunk to 13cm in order to afford a better life and help save the planet’s limited resources. Is this fantasy with a touch of truth, asks Abigail Beall

Downsizing imagines a world in which “cellular miniaturisation” becomes a popular trend and a possible solution to an imminent environmental apocalypse. Making humans smaller could indeed have a huge benefit to our planet. The larger we are, the more food we need to survive; and the heavier we are, the more fuel our cars or airplanes need to carry us. “A way to reduce this ecological footprint would be to reduce size,” says Matthew Liao, director of bioethics at New York University. Indeed, if the members of an average British household were to be downsized – as per the film – their annual waste footprint would be slashed by a huge 93%. Likewise, it would take more than 13 years for a downsized person to emit the same volume of greenhouse gases that a normal-sized person produces in a year.

In 2014, Liao came up with the idea of shrinking humans to lesson our impact on the world. He found that reducing the average US height by just 15cm would mean a mass reduction of 23% for men and 25% for women, with a corresponding reduction of metabolic rate – 15% for men and 18% for women.

The year in Nazi propaganda: images of white supremacy in Trump's America

How should staged neo-Nazi acts of intimidation be handled? Some say they should be ignored, others insist the media must bear witness

In May, a few dozen white supremacists gathered after dark in a park in Charlottesville, Virginia. They had brought garden torches and candles, and they set them aflame while posing in front of a statue of confederate general Robert E Lee that Charlottesville was trying to remove.

The demonstration in front of the statue lasted about 10 minutes, according to one local report. But before the police arrived and dispersed the provocateurs, who were led by Richard Spencer, a white nationalist most famous for getting punched in the face, the flames had attracted the attention of local TV news cameras and a local newspaper reporter, who took a photograph of the men with their flaming torches and shared it on Twitter. The photo, with the outline of the slave-owning general rising out of the smoke, was widely republished around the world.

The magnets and light beams that signal an end to blood tests for malaria | Kate Hodal

After missing lectures due to malaria, a Ugandan engineer came up with a low-cost device to speed up diagnosis of one of sub-Saharan Africa’s biggest killers

Malaria is the leading cause of death in Uganda. Children and pregnant women are most vulnerable, but the blood tests that help diagnose it are invasive, expensive and time consuming. It means that half of all malaria deaths continue to be in children aged under five.

Software engineer Brian Gitta, 25, became determined to turn this statistic on its head after malaria forced him to miss lectures at university. Along with six student friends – all of whom have been infected several times with malaria – he developed a low-cost, reusable device that can test for the disease quickly and accurately, without drawing blood.

Fake news is a threat to humanity, but scientists may have a solution | Dana Nuccitelli

“Technocognition” proposes that we use technology and psychology to break through the mental barriers that make people deny threats like climate change

People are very good at finding ways to believe what we want to believe. Climate change is the perfect example – acceptance of climate science among Americans is strongly related to political ideology. This has exposed humanity’s potentially fatal flaw. Denying an existential threat threatens our existence.

But that’s exactly what many ideological conservatives do. Partisan polarization over climate change has steadily grown over the past two decades. This change can largely be traced to the increasingly fractured and partisan media environment that has created an echo chamber in which people can wrap themselves in the comfort of “alternative facts” (a.k.a spin and lies) that affirm their worldviews. We’ve become too good at fooling ourselves into believing falsehoods, which has ushered in a dangerous “post-truth” era, with no better example than the subject of climate change.

Top 10 experimental thrillers

In these risk-taking novels, by writers from Paul Auster to William Burroughs, watching the formal adventures can be as thrilling as the detective work

Gertrude Stein once said fiction that merely related events was no longer interesting in an age of ubiquitous mass media. But Stein remained fascinated by literature, specifically the detective novel, which she considered the singularly modern fictional form. When the man or woman in question is dead from the start, you’re done with mere events before page one. Furthermore: “In real life … it is the crime that is the thing the shock the thrill the horror but in the story it is the detection that holds the interest.”

My own novel The Fountain in the Forest is an experimental thriller that begins with the discovery of a brutally murdered man in a Covent Garden theatre. Detective Sergeant Rex King becomes obsessed with the case, but as he explores the crime scene further – so the jacket copy goes – the mystery deepens. The book is the first part of a trilogy exploring the legacy of a decisive period in recent British history – 90 days in 1985 between the end of the miners’ strike and the Battle of the Beanfield at Stonehenge, reputedly the largest civilian mass arrest in the UK since the second world war.

Die Rekruten: the reality show on the frontline of the German army's battle for public support

A hit YouTube documentary may help to undo scepticism about the military as allies call for the country to play a bigger role

Julia weeps when ordered to remove her piercings, Jerome struggles with his early wake-up call, and Marvin shivers when handed an assault rifle for the first time. “I hope I never have to use it,” he says. The scenes are from Die Rekruten (The Recruits), a hit YouTube documentary following the lives of 12 new marines, who have become something like minor celebrities, during their first three months of training.

“Perhaps these will be the hardest three months of their lives,” says a deep-voiced commentator during the opening credits of the show, against a dramatic backdrop of silhouettes of the recruits, who have attracted a strong following on social media.

Battle for the mother land: indigenous people of Colombia fighting for their lands

The 50-year civil war is over but, in the Cauca Valley, indigenous communities are on frontline of fight against drug gangs, riot police and deforestation

In pictures: Colombia’s land battles shatter the peace in Cauca Valley

A green-and-red flag flies over a cluster of bamboo and tarpaulin tents on the frontline of an increasingly deadly struggle for land and the environment in Colombia’s Cauca Valley.

It is the banner for what indigenous activists are calling the “liberation of Mother Earth”, a movement to reclaim ancestral land from sugar plantations, farms and tourist resorts that has gained momentum in the vacuum left by last year’s peace accord between the government and the leftwing guerrillas who once dominated the region – ending, in turn, the world’s longest-running civil war.

The 20 activists on the tour represent forest communities that have been marginalised over centuries but are now increasingly recognised as important actors against climate change through their protection of carbon sinks.

Margaret Atwood: the unlikely style soothsayer of 2017

Thanks to two hit adaptations of her books, the writer has had a big impact on fashion this year

Did you ever suspect that one of 2017’s key fashion references would be “dispossessed 1842 Upper Canadian housemaid”? How about “enslaved walking womb in a dystopian future”? Perhaps not. But in an unsettling year the TV shows that had the biggest impact on our wardrobes centred on two such protagonists.

In case you missed the references, I’m talking about Alias Grace and The Handmaid’s Tale. Both were based on books by Margaret Atwood and both featured women whose lives were ruled and ruined by the patriarchy. Both characters’ clothes were symbols of their repression: their dresses covered them up; their bonnets restricted their view.

Maureen Baker obituary

Fashion designer best known for creating Princess Anne’s wedding dress in 1973

Maureen Baker did not go into fashion to make her name, because that was not how the business worked when she started out, picking up pins in the workshop. The names on the labels were those of modest companies with distinctive identities, such as Susan Small, where she designed anonymously for over 30 years. Baker, who has died aged 97, first emerged in public at 53; she had for a while been personally designing for a special Susan Small customer, Princess Anne, who then said: “You will, of course, be making my wedding dress.”

That dress, for the princess’s marriage to Captain Mark Phillips in 1973, was a very big deal. The court designer Norman Hartnell had created Anne’s mother Elizabeth’s wedding gown in 1947, and its relative glamour had been a national obsession amid austerity. Anne had more problems with fashion than her mother and grandmother: attempts by venerable British couturiers to do 1960s styles had made the teenage Anne look like lamb dressed as mutton, while new Brit fashion was too wild for courtly duties. When Anne was 18, Princess Alexandra, a long-term Susan Small customer, had recommended she should put herself in the hands of Baker, its chief designer since 1943.

'If it looks better than it tastes, step away' – 2017's dumbest food trends

Last year’s avo toast was only a precursor to 2017’s parade of culinary weirdness – with plates filled with cloud eggs, Yorkshire pudding wraps and a side of unicorn sprinkle

You can tell a lot about a culture by the food that fuels it – and in the annals of culinary progress, 2017 has not been an altogether glorious year. If you thought 2016’s avo toast was bad, take a look at these horrors.

Charcoal pizza bases, buns, ice-creams Actually, charcoal in anything that isn’t a barbecue. Not only does it taste awful, but there’s no evidence of any health benefits unless you’ve already been poisoned, in which case you probably shouldn’t be eating pizza. In fact, so effective is charcoal at absorbing chemicals that it can affect prescription medication, too. But hey, if it looks good on Instagram ...

Edinburgh's festive transformation – photo essay

From the carousel with views over Scotland’s capital to the Christmas market and lights, photographer Murdo MacLeod captures the city’s festive cheer

The centre of the Scottish capital is transformed from mid-November through to 6 January, as part of a season of festive entertainment in the heart of the city. Underbelly is producing the event for the fifth year running for the city council - which last year received more than 900,000 visitors over the six-week period. Centred around Princes Street, the festive attractions range from an ice rink to two Christmas markets, children’s rides, and grown-up fairground attractions and light shows. Looking ahead to the end of the year, the city’s Hogmanay celebrations last three days, and the city expects around 150,000 visitors to that part of the event alone.
