Yemen's Saudi-backed government 'to flee from Aden'

Fighters seeking independence for southern Yemen have seized much of the city

'Shrouded in shame': the young women on either side of Ireland's abortion debate

Anti-abortion and pro-choice activists are gearing up for a hard-fought referendum in which the youth vote could prove key

An average of 11 women travel each day from Ireland to have an abortion in England and Wales, according to the most recent Department of Health data. That adds up to more than 200,000 journeys since 1983, when the passing of the Eighth Amendment made abortions illegal in the Republic of Ireland.

In Northern Ireland, meanwhile, a ban has always been in force – and the potential punishment for contravening it is more severe. “It’s much more difficult even to have a conversation about abortion in Belfast,” says Jess Brien, a 25-year-old pro-choice campaigner who lives in Northern Ireland’s capital, “because the maximum sentence for having one here is life imprisonment.”

How the people of Mosul subverted Isis 'apartheid'

Part two – the fall: Once Isis had established its authority in Mosul, it administered the city using a two-tier system – privileges for ‘brothers’, hardship for everyone else. But locals resisted, and the Ponzi scheme began to crumble

The day Isis attacked Mosul, Wassan, an affable young doctor with a cherubic face, ran from the maternity ward to the emergency room at Jimhoriya hospital. Injured civilians had begun pouring in. Wassan had just graduated from medical school, and had no experience in treating trauma casualties. As the wounded continued to arrive, what she lacked in knowledge she tried to make up for with enthusiasm.

By the evening, the wards were overflowing, patients spilling into the corridors. Wassan slept overnight in the hospital, ignoring her father’s incessant phone calls to come home.

What does Hollywood's reverence for child rapist Roman Polanski tell us?

It’s 40 years this week since the director and convicted sex offender went on the run. What does his continued success reveal about the film world’s true attitude towards sexual assault?

Forty years ago this week, Roman Polanski went from being one of the most celebrated film-makers in the world to becoming the United States’ most notorious fugitive from justice.

On 1 February 1978, after 42 days in jail, Polanski fled the US while awaiting final sentencing, having pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. On these facts, everyone agrees. There are no hazy conspiracy theories – we know exactly what happened because Polanski admitted to it and later wrote about it in astonishing detail in his autobiography, Roman by Polanski, published six years after he left the US and went to France, where he still lives. There are some quibbles about who said what, but the generally agreed facts are as follows: in March 1977 Polanski, who was then 43, took a child, Samantha Gailey (now Geimer), who he knew was 13 years old, to Jack Nicholson’s house to take photos of her for a magazine. There, he gave her champagne and, according to her, quaaludes. He then had sex with her, drove her home and, the next day, was arrested.

Then I hummed a melody and by the time I got to the chorus, I had words. “Hang on,” I thought. “I’m a talented songwriter but I’m not this talented!” It was as if a higher power was writing through me, because this stuff was coming out like magic.

Janet Yellen sets interest rates one last time. How will history rate her?

The Fed chair has set the bar high for her successor, a tenure defined by five major achievements

Janet Yellen, the Federal Reserve chair, begins her final rate-setting meeting at the helm of the US central bank on Tuesday, before she is replaced by Donald Trump’s chosen successor, Jerome Powell.

The first woman to lead the Fed arrived in February 2014 at a time when the money-printing machine of quantitative easing was whirring at full-tilt under her predecessor, Ben Bernanke. QE, which involved the Fed buying bonds from financial institutions, pumped billions of dollars into the US economy to keep it afloat after the financial crisis.

British Virgin Islands tourism showing signs of recovery after Hurricane Irma

Now is the time to visit the islands, says one UK operator, as cruise and sailing tourism return nearly five months after the devastating storm – while rebuilding continues on land

It sounds like an exaggeration but when Hurricane Irma knocked out the British Virgin Islands (BVI) on 6 September 2017 the winds did reach 215mph – faster still inside the tornadoes spinning on the edge of the storm’s eye.

'One big pothole’: Will Trump fix America’s decaying infrastructure?

Bridges and roads crumble. Capitol Hill is in stasis. As Trump prepares to announce an infrastructure plan in his state of the union address, can no one agree on anything?

She remembers first crossing the bridge as a girl in the 1950s. “My mother was scared to death because they had little metal balustrades you could see right through and it looked like you could crash over the edge,” Maria Estevez says. “They were scary. My mum would close her eyes when we crossed the bridge.”

Today the metal fencing has been replaced by concrete Jersey barriers but little else has changed on the Governor Harry W Nice Memorial Bridge since it opened in 1940, two years after President Franklin Roosevelt broke ground. Back then it was expected to carry 136,000 vehicles a year from southern Maryland to Virginia, but by 1964 traffic had reached 3.2m vehicles; today it stands at 6.5m.

Transfer window: Aubameyang, Giroud, Batshuayi and more – live!

Not sure about you but I’m still reeling from that news. Lord Bendtner?! Why didn’t we think of him before? Perhaps he could be the answer to Antonio Conte’s problems? Then again, maybe not...

Here’s an interview with the man himself from 2015.

UFC and Ronda Rousey had a marriage of convenience. But it was a superb one

Ronda Rousey helped her fellow female fighters gain a foothold in mixed martial arts, while Dana White’s organization raked in huge sums of money

Looking back, Ronda Rousey was done in the UFC when Holly Holm knocked her out at UFC 193. That was 15 November 2015 and in two rounds Rousey went from a whirl of fury and fire who stomped across all-comers to a crushed soul.

It happens this way in fighting, especially in MMA. Once a great champion has been vanquished, it’s hard for them to stand back up. There was a recovery, a promise of future dominance wrapped in virulent torrents of insult and agitation. But when Rousey finally fought again, on the penultimate day of 2016, the lioness was gone. She took a 48-second pounding from Amanda Nunes and stepped out the gate for good.

Six Nations 2018: six tournament newcomers to watch out for | Robert Kitson

France have a back-row who makes even Maro Itoje appear sluggish, while another brilliant Leinster product can shine

Sekou Macalou (France): Pretty much everyone has given up on French rugby. Even when they are not sacking their national coach or having their national training centre raided by police investigating the alleged activities of Bernard Laporte, president of the French Federation, Les Bleus are still widely seen as a shambles. And yet, when it comes to promising young players, France possess two of the most dazzling diamonds in the tournament in the form of Matthieu Jalibert, their new 19-year-old whiz-kid of a fly-half, and Sekou Macalou, a 22-year-old back-row who makes even Maro Itoje appear sluggish. The gifted Jalibert has the full palate of skills but it could just be the marginally more experienced Macalou who gives Ireland most trouble in round one. Big, strong, athletic and mobile, the flanker shone against the All Blacks in the autumn and is the latest impressive talent to emerge from the tough Parisian banlieues. France have some exceptional individual talent; it simply needs harnessing.

The Glaswegian BMX rider whose redemptive story has hit Hollywood

John Buultjens fell in love with cycling when he saw ET as a kid. Now he hopes a film about his life will inspire a new generation

By Jonathan Drennan for Behind the Lines

John Buultjens, a Glaswegian who made his name and fame by riding and designing BMX bikes, is standing outside his home in San Diego. The sun is shining and the sea air is clean and fresh. It’s a world away from where he grew. up “One of my earliest memories is the stench of waste in the streets,” he recalls. “It was in the middle of a bin-men’s strike. I remember streets that smelt of rotten rubbish and rats clambering around our feet. It summed up the mood of desperation. My childhood was a study in survival.”

Buultjens’ early years do not make for easy listening, even when you know there is a happy ending to come many years later. “When I was three years old, I remember running to see my dad – excited to see him – and he just threw me into a fire. I still remember feeling my flesh on my foot burning. There was always a constant fear at home growing up. Just before Christmas in 1979, when I was seven years old, my dad was beating up my mum and I ran in with a kitchen knife to defend her. I was ready to kill him but ended up getting knocked out cold. That was the end up of my time in that house.”

David Beckham wants to bring Class of '92 spirit to his Miami MLS team
  • Former England captain has endured long journey to found club
  • Beckham paid $25m for rights to new expansion franchise

An emotional David Beckham said Miami had made his “dream come true” after finally becoming a Major League Soccer team owner. The Miami MLS team plans to enter the US top-flight as its 25th team in two years.

The new club, which is yet to be named, was rubber-stamped by MLS 1,454 days after the former England captain arrived in Miami pledging to bring a professional team to the city. Now, with most of the hurdles cleared, MLS commissioner Don Garber has awarded Miami a franchise that will bring professional football back to the city for the first time since 2001.

Amnesty workers tried as terrorists? This is the repressive new Turkey | Kate Allen

Turkey’s military offensive in Afrin ?looks set to dominate news coverage of the region for weeks to come.

Which is no surprise. The operation is taking place on the much bigger stage of the war in Syria, Russia and the US are both deeply involved, and the UN is anxiously assessing the scale of the impact on the already dire humanitarian situation, the number of displaced people running into the thousands.

We need to rethink our resistance to Donald Trump’s ideas

The US president has proven himself a narcissistic liar with no impulse control – it is time to get serious about how we combat him

Asking if Donald Trump is a feminist is like asking if Piers Morgan is a journalist: unnecessary and embarrassing, given the evidence before us. The ratings for the “show” in which the pair met on Sunday were indeed sad; less than for a poor night of Casualty. Obviously, I watched it on one of my three televisions, in bed, while checking Twitter. I saw that George Osborne – another achitect of misery who masquerades as a journalist – was congratulating Morgan on Twitter. It almost put me off my cheeseburger.

What was to be gleaned from this gibber? Nada. Zilch. It has got to stop. By which I mean we have to stop what we have been doing for a year.

We are a long way from a #MeToo moment about race | Chitra Ramaswamy

Women of colour still get shouted down when they talk about race in Britain – but we won’t be silenced

What happens when a woman of colour talks about race in this country? To answer the question, which presumably white people don’t want to ask because they’re too busy debating the more pressing one of whether racism actually exists, I direct you to a particularly sneering review of Afua Hirsch’s book, Brit(ish): On Race, Identity and Belonging. A review by a white British man of a book by a mixed race British woman which, inconveniently for the reviewer, confirms in its sheer nastiness everything Hirsch is saying.

Apart from the fact that this is obviously an instance of a review being cynically co-opted as an opportunity to further divisiveness as opposed to an actual conversation (“I know! Let’s get a defensive white man on this!”), it shows how far we are from a #MeToo moment about race. From, at base level, just being heard. “White privilege,” Reni Eddo-Lodge writes in Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, “is a … suffocating blanket of power that envelops everything we know, like a snowy day.” And like snow, its overwhelming effect is silence: to muffle our everyday experience.

The hypocrisy of the Davos set is finally being exposed | Zoe Williams
The emperors of neoliberalism claim to be addressing inequality, but stay silent on fair wages. Now capitalism is having to face its contraditions

Financial elites, huh? Can’t live with them, can’t stop obsessing about their snowsuits. Still rocking from the revelations elicited from Donald Trump by Piers Morgan on ITV at the weekend – that he has met Morgan before and definitely remembers him, that he is super successful in everything he does, and that he feels love for all people – we greet the week with a significant shift of the intersection point between politics and money.

Rally Trump was trenchantly anti-globalisation; Victory Trump was savagely anti-elites. Campaigning in green ink and governing in poison pen, he never essayed that Clintonian Davos sheen, the smooth, luxurious world where billionaires were doing everybody else a favour and heads of state moved respectfully among them by invitation.

Men-only parties are loud, uncouth and vomit-soaked. So why do we love them? | Tom Usher
Not every all-male event is like the Presidents Club. For both genders, single-sex camaraderie can provide a healthy release

Two of my best friends are getting married this year! Congratulations guys! And what does that mean for me, other than an increased ability to raise the levels of tinnitus in my eardrums whenever they talk about anything related to marriage? Stag dos of course! Whoo! Drinking! Banter! Lads! Ladsladsladsladslads. Finally some safe space for us men to release ourselves from society’s shackles and do whatever we like – just fellas, no women! Phew!

I’ve never actually been on a stag before, being from a generation that takes a Goldilocks-esque “just right” approach to marriage. But if they’re anything like what happens on lads’ holidays and nights out, then there’ll basically just be loads of A) alcohol, B) boyish vulgarity and C) clunky male bonding via the mediums of A and B. Loud, uncouth and annoying? Yes, but also usually harmless, unless you live next door to the Airbnb they’re staying in.

Julian Barnes: ‘Flaubert could have written a great novel about contemporary America’
The writer discusses his latest novel, the demands of modern readers and his fondness for unusual books

Julian Barnes is the author of 13 novels, including The Sense of an Ending, which won the Booker prize, and The Noise of Time. He has also written three books of short stories, four collections of essays and two books of nonfiction, Nothing to Be Frightened of and the bestselling Levels of Life. In 2017, he was appointed an officer of the Légion d’honneur. His new novel, which opens in suburban Surrey in the early 1960s, is The Only Story (Jonathan Cape, £16.99).

Your new novel is about an affair between a young man, Paul, and an older woman, Susan. Which came to you first: the characters, their situation or the book’s themes of innocence and experience?
The situation, as it always does. I never start by making up a bunch of characters and then wonder what might happen to them. I think of a situation, an impossible dilemma, a moral or emotional quandary, and then wonder to whom it might happen and when and where. In part, this novel came out of The Sense of an Ending, in which there is a central relationship between a young man and a middle-aged woman, about which we are told nothing. We just have to intuit what it must have been like from the scantiest of evidence. Here, we are told all, though this couple is different from that couple.

George RR Martin funds scholarship for budding 'worldbuilders'

Game of Thrones author will sponsor place at Clarion West Writers Workshop to ‘help the next great fantasist on the long journey ahead’

Citing his belief that “these days, the world [has] more need of wonder than ever before”, George RR Martin has embarked on a quest to help create a new generation of inspiring authors, by funding a scholarship for those with ambitions to create fantasy worlds.

Stating that the best epic fantasy “requires a memorable setting … a world both like and unlike our own, with its own rich history and geography and customs, its own beauties and terrors”, the Game of Thrones author has announced that he is to sponsor an aspiring science fiction and fantasy author to learn how to build their own “imagined landscape”. Martin’s annual “Worldbuilder” scholarship will fund a writer to take up a place on the six-week writing course at the Clarion West Writers Workshop in Seattle. The winner, who will be selected each year in a blind judging process, will “not be limited by age, race, sex, religion, skin colour, place of origin or field of study”, said Martin, and will demonstrate “both financial need and a talent for worldbuilding and the creation of secondary universes”.

In the line of dire: let's call time on Clint Eastwood's macho movies

The Hollywood veteran’s stoic war films provide the same one-sided scenario every time, from American Sniper to 15:17 to Paris

There is no questioning the heroism of the three Americans, two of them off-duty soldiers, who foiled a terrorist attack on a Paris-bound train in 2015. There is a question, though, over whether we needed a movie about it. The answer could be summarised in two words: Clint Eastwood. With a career as long and lucrative as his, there is practically no one left in Hollywood who’d dare refuse him. The grizzled veteran can pretty much make whatever he wants – which is invariably a story of stoic, white, militaristic American masculinity saving the day.

How to feed your gut

Want a healthy gut? Reach for the kimchi, sauerkraut, artichokes, coffee and chocolate. But watch out – one category of food will make your microbes wither

Kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut, miso and kefir – all fermented foods and drinks – have been around for centuries, but suddenly they are all the rage. The reason? They are supposedly packed full of gut-healthy microorganisms, and we are finally waking up to just how much the trillions of microorganisms that live in our guts (AKA the gut microbiome) contribute to our mental and physical health.

True, probiotic products such as Yakult – sweetened skimmed milk fermented with a single strain of friendly bacteria – have been shifting hefty units for some time: the global probiotic market, dominated by yoghurt drinks, was worth $45.6bn (£33bn) last year. But Yakult is fairly bland and sweet. Traditional and home-fermented delicacies are another, more pungent matter altogether: kombucha (a naturally fizzy cocktail of green tea and sugar) tastes vinegary; kimchi (vegetables fermented Korean-style) is sour and fiery; sauerkraut, which is fermented cabbage, whiffs of sulphur. All can intimidate palates used to highly processed western blandness.

Anna Jones' recipes for root vegetable winter stews | Anna Jones

Of all the cooking I do in winter, a deep bowl of braised vegetables stew is what I find myself drawn to most often

Deep winter is my favourite time to be in the kitchen. January brings roots to roast, fat apples to stew, blood oranges and fennel to slice thinly into salads, porridge and rice pudding to stir. My winter cooking is done softly, sometimes slowly, the flavours gentle, round and warm; turmeric, saffron, buttery garlic, mellow ginger and the warming hum of star anise. Of all the cooking I do in winter, a deep pot of stew is what I find myself drawn to most often – sometimes merely the sum of what I have in the fridge, other times more layered and considered. Time to hunker down.

I barely have the desire to have sex with my girlfriend – but desperately wish I did

We have only slept together twice in the past year. How can I love and be in a relationship with someone I no longer desire?

I’m 31 years old and I’ve been with my girlfriend for nearly three years now, but we’ve struggled with sex over the past 12-18 months. Ever since we started dating I’ve had a higher sex drive than her and a desire to be more experimental. I feel there was the constant hollow promise that we would try new things, but it never happened and now we’re only slept together twice in the past year, and even that was unfulfilling. I’m not sure I even have any desire to have sex with her any more, despite desperately wishing I did. How can I love and be in a relationship with someone I don’t want to sleep with?

You have asked a question to which there is no satisfactory answer – unless you decide to prioritise all other aspects of your relationship over sexuality. Trying so hard to reconcile the irreconcilable is making you very sad - and no wonder; such a gulf between thoughts and feelings commonly pitches a person into depression. This problem is not going to get better by itself, so it must be addressed urgently and directly. You need to have a very focused conversation with your girlfriend, in which you must share your true feelings without apportioning blame. Help her to see how unhappy this situation is making you, and ask her to describe her own feelings, while listening empathically.

Customers will be able to choose their preferred spot from a map giving details of sun and shade

A local’s guide to Porto, Portugal

For a whistlestop visit to Portugal’s delightful second city, a guided tour is probably a good idea. Porto’s tourist route is now well-worn, but wonderful nonetheless.

'Price of conflict is too high': hunger at crisis levels in eight countries

War driving up acute food insecurity on a vast scale, report finds, with Yemen, South Sudan and Syria worst affected

The number of hungry people living in conflict zones is rising, with eight countries recording crisis or emergency levels of food insecurity in at least a quarter of their people, food agencies warned the UN security council on Monday.

In Yemen, 17 million people, or 60% of the population, are facing acute food insecurity, while in South Sudan, the figure is 4.8 million or 45% of its people. The other countries ranked as having the highest proportions of food insecure people were Syria, Lebanon, Central African Republic, Ukraine, Afghanistan and Somalia, according to a report by the World Food Programme and the Food and Agriculture Organisation.

Scattered haphazardly and protruding from the earth, they were the remains of of prehistoric reptiles that lived 220m years ago, at the same time as the earliest dinosaurs.

The cult of Mary Beard

How a late-blossoming classics don became Britain’s most beloved intellectual. By Charlotte Higgins

The first time I saw Mary Beard, I was 17. It was 1989, and she was speaking at a joint open day for the Oxford and Cambridge classics faculties. She was utterly unlike the other speakers, who, as I recall them, were Oxbridge dons straight from central casting: tweedy, forbidding, male. Instead of standing at a lectern like everyone else, she perched rakishly on the edge of a desk. She was dressed in a vaguely hippyish, embroidered black dress, and a cascade of black hair tumbled around her shoulders. Greg Woolf, now director of the Institute of Classical Studies at the University of London, recalls another one of those open days, in the early 1990s. “I spoke, and then another big hairy bloke like me spoke. And then Mary came on and said: ‘Well, you’ve heard what the boys have got to say.’ And you could see that she’d already won everyone’s hearts.”

Everyone who has met Beard seems to have a story about encountering her for the first time – usually involving her rigorous intellect, her total lack of formality, and her sense of mischief. One of her former students, Emily Kneebone, remembers supervisions – one-to-one or two-to-one teaching sessions – at Newnham, the women-only Cambridge college to which Beard has been attached for most of her adult life, first as a student, then as a don. She would teach from a chaise longue: “At first she’d be in a normal position, but as the hour progressed she would gradually slide further and further down so you could only see her feet.” One junior colleague still remembers Beard introducing herself, at a conference almost 25 years ago, with the overture, “Give us a fag, darlin’.”

'There is no peace': traumatised Rohingya vow they won't go back to Myanmar

Efforts to send Rohingya back over the border are foundering before they have even begun

“They burned my house and my whole village, they stole my crops,” Nagumia says. “I saw them throw the young children, and the old people who could not run, into the fire. They cut people’s throats and their bellies and left them to die. I cannot go back. What am I going to go back to?”

Across the Naf River from Myanmar, in the swollen Rohingya refugee camps huddled against Bangladesh’s border, the wounds are too raw: there is almost no one yet willing to consider return.

'The Franklin would be dammed today': Australia's shrinking environmental protections

The nation is losing the political will to protect our pristine places – and biodiversity is suffering

What if the Franklin river hadn’t been saved?

Stopping the Gordon-below-Franklin dam was one of the Australian environment movement’s great victories: in the late 1970s, the state-owned Hydro-Electric Commission wanted to flood one of three last temperate rainforests in the southern hemisphere to create a power station.

Rotting cabins, closed trails: why we're shining a light on US national parks

Amid dangers from the Trump administration and climate change, sites including the Grand Canyon and Zion national park are facing yet another threat: ‘massive disrepair’

At Zion national park, a popular trail has been closed since 2010. At the Grand Canyon, a rusting pipeline that supplies drinking water to the busiest part of the park breaks at least a half-dozen times a year. At Voyageurs, a historic cabin collapsed.

The National Park Service is the protector of some of America’s greatest environmental and cultural treasures. Yet a huge funding shortfall means that the strain of America’s passion for its parks is showing. Trails are crumbling and buildings are rotting. In all there is an $11bn backlog of maintenance work that repair crews have been unable to perform, a number that has mostly increased every year in the past decade.

Why the Grammys continue to fail women and hip-hop

The event may yoke itself to issues like #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, but when it comes to actual awards, women and hip-hop continue to be overlooked

Expecting radical action from an awards ceremony is like expecting the weather forecast to rearrange the skies. These events reinforce cultural norms rather than setting them, even if institutions such as the Oscars and Golden Globes are trying to reinvent themselves in the aftermath of Harvey Weinstein, Donald Trump and Black Lives Matter. But rarely has that culture of affirmation been more apparent than at this year’s Grammys, which rode numerous political moments without contributing to or rewarding them.

The Grammys’ 60th year boasted two advance headlines. One was that hip-hop might finally get its dues at the ceremony. The first hip-hop record to win the album of the year category was Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in 1999; the second, and latest, was Outkast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below in 2004. This year marked the rare occasion when no white men were up for the award, populated instead by Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic, Childish Gambino’s Awaken, My Love!, Jay-Z’s 4:44, Kendrick Lamar’s Damn and Lorde’s Melodrama. Yet Mars won with his third album of cosy funk and R&B. His acceptance speech nodded to its retro influences – 80s and 90s stars Babyface, Teddy Riley, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis – putting him in stark contrast with his more progressive, political competitors.

On the Amazon’s lawless frontier, murder mystery divides the locals and loggers

The violent murder of Sairá Ka’apor, in a logging town in Brazil’s Maranhão state, is still unsolved. But the story is all too familiar for the indigenous people fighting to protect the forest

Sairá Ka’apor patrolled one of the most murderous frontiers in the world, a remote and largely lawless region of the Brazilian Amazon where his indigenous community has fought for generations to protect their forest land.

Armed with clubs, bows and arrows, GPS trackers and crude guns, he and fellow members of Ka’apor Forest Guard drove off – and sometimes attacked – loggers who intruded into their territory, the 530,000-hectare Alto Turiaçu Indigenous Land, which is roughly three times the area of Greater London and contains about half of the Amazon forest left in Brazil’s northern Maranhão state. That vigilante role came to an end last April when Sairá was stabbed to death in Betel, a logging town close to Ka’apor territory.
