1. Has Brexit saved the Lib Dems?05:00[−]

The Lib Dems have made an extraordinary comeback in 2019 because of their anti-Brexit stance. The Observer political editor, Toby Helm, discusses whether the party is here to stay. And: Oliver Wainwright on the inclusion of social housing in this year’s Stirling architecture prize

The Liberal Democrats have spent most of this decade paying the electoral price for the coalition of 2010-15. The party plummeted from 57 MPs to a mere eight. Under Tim Farron and Vince Cable, the party was no longer preparing for government, but for possible extinction. Yet Brexit, along with Tory and Labour divisions on the issue, has driven a Lib Dem revival.

Toby Helm, the Observer political editor, discusses with Anushka Asthana the rise and fall and rise again of the Liberal Democrat party. Next week, the Lib Dems will also choose a new leader. Toby and Anushka discuss the candidate options of Jo Swinson and Ed Davey and how they can capitalise on this wave of remainer support.

2. Kevin Spacey: prosecutors drop case accusing actor of groping teen04:56[−]

The actor was accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old man at a Massachusetts resort island bar in 2016

Prosecutors dropped a case Wednesday accusing Kevin Spacey of groping a young man at a resort island bar in 2016, after the accuser refused to testify about a missing cellphone the defense says contains information supporting the actor’s claims of innocence.

Spacey was charged with indecent assault and battery last year in the only criminal case that has been brought against the actor since his career collapsed amid a slew of sexual misconduct allegations. The two-time Oscar winner was among the earliest and biggest names to be ensnared in the #MeToo movement against sexual assault and harassment that swept across the entertainment and other industries.

Marital rape not being prosecuted enough, campaigners say, in a country where women face growing harassment

Activists have warned of an “epidemic” of sexual harassment and violence against women in Indonesia, in the wake of two recent cases of horrific domestic abuse.

In one incident, a man in Jakarta reportedly slashed his wife’s throat with a machete after she refused to have sex with him, an act witnessed by their two children, aged seven and 14.

5. Trump rally crowd chants 'send her back' after president attacks Ilhan Omar04:22[−]

Chant follows Trump’s racist tweets targeting Omar and three other Democratic congresswomen of color

Goaded on by the president, a crowd at a Donald Trump rally on Wednesday night chanted “send her back! send her back!” in reference to Ilhan Omar, a US congresswoman who arrived almost 30 years ago as a child refugee in the United States.

Trump used the 2020 campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina, to attack Omar and three other Democratic congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayana Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – calling them “hate-filled extremists”. The group, which calls itself “the Squad”, has been the focus of racist attacks by the president this week, kickstarted by tweets posted Sunday in which he said the lawmakers, all women of color, should “go back” to other countries.

Cyber attack compromised records on incomes, tax, health insurance and loans of millions of people

A 20-year-old cybersecurity worker has been arrested in Bulgaria and charged with hacking the personal and financial records of millions of taxpayers, as police continue to investigate the country’s biggest ever data breach.

Bulgaria’s NRA tax agency is facing a fine of up to €20m ($22.43m) over the hack, which was revealed this week and is thought to have compromised the records of nearly every working adult among the country’s population of 7 million.

Amnesty International USA has called for a detention center for migrant children in Florida to be closed down and for congressional public hearings to be held into conditions at the facility, which lies near Miami and was recently visited by a slew of 2020 Democratic candidates.

Chris Froome has officially been named as the winner of the 2011 Vuelta a Espa?a following a doping case involving Juan Jos? Cobo, who originally finished in first place.

It is Froome’s seventh Grand Tour title and first chronologically. Bradley Wiggins did not win the Tour de France until the following July, so Froome’s retrospective victory also makes him Britain’s first Grand Tour winner.

Scheme aims to reduce number of drivers involved in accidents during first years behind wheel

Young drivers could be banned from the road at night under plans to improve safety, the Department for Transport has announced. Figures show that a fifth are involved in an accident during their first year behind the wheel, and ministers are considering introducing a graduated licence system for novice drivers in England.

The scheme could feature a series of restrictions, such as a minimum learning period, not driving at night and not driving with passengers under a certain age. The DfT did not reveal how long the measures would remain in place once someone had passed their driving test.

Former Beatle is to write songs for Frank Capra’s ‘universal story’, working with Lee Hall, author of Billy Elliot

He has written perhaps the greatest canon of pop music, collaborated with everyone from Elvis Costello to Rihanna, and even soundtracked a video game, but at 77, Paul McCartney is ticking off another career first: writing a musical.

His first stage musical is to be an adaptation of Frank Capra’s 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life, and will open late in 2020. McCartney will write music and lyrics for the project. Lee Hall, author of Billy Elliot and screenwriter for the recent Elton John biopic Rocketman, is also writing lyrics, and the show’s book.

Confidential and sometimes unflattering appraisals of foreign leaders have been a staple of the diplomatic cable long before the leaking of the former US ambassador Kim Darroch’s emails.

  • Netflix added barely half the expected 5 million new subscribers

Netflix missed its growth targets by a huge margin in the last three months, the company announced on Wednesday, triggering a 10% drop in its share price.

Announcing its latest quarterly figures, Netflix said it had added 2.7 million new subscribers worldwide, well below its guidance of 5 million new subscribers and down from 6 million for the same period last year. The company lost 130,000 subscribers in the US from last quarter.

16. An Open that will make its mark beyond the game and the courseСр., 17 июля[−]
After a 68-year wait Royal Portrush may prove one of the major’s more exciting backdrops scenically and politically

Counterintuitive though it may seem the Open Championship, in its 148th staging and with a history stretching back to 1860 in Prestwick, has entered uncharted territory. Never before has this tournament been so defined by its venue. Significance of location far outweighs the most illustrious participants. After a wait of 68 years, a stretch marked for so long by grim societal realities, Royal Portrush is the Open’s terrain once more.

  • Tens of thousands to take to streets of San Juan

Puerto Rico is bracing for large demonstrations in the capital city of San Juan on Wednesday evening as the scandal engulfing the US territory’s local administration continues to deepen and the embattled governor, Ricardo Rossell?, vows to hold on to power despite waning support.

Tens of thousands are expected to take to the streets later today following protests earlier in the week that were dispersed with teargas and rubber bullets. In anticipation of potential unrest the cruise line company Royal Caribbean suspended a daily stop at the island “to ensure the safety and security of our guests and crew”.

Germany’s Hossein Ensan outlasted Italy’s Dario Sammartino and Canada’s Alex Livingston to claim the $10m title early on Wednesday at the 50th World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas.

The 55-year-old, who was born in Iran but moved to Germany 30 years ago, became the oldest world poker champion in 20 years when he finished off Sammartino after nearly eight hours of play at the final table. It’s the first time since 2014 the winner has come from outside the United States and the third time the title has gone to an Iranian-born competitor.

20. DRC Ebola epidemic is international emergency, says WHOСр., 17 июля[−]

Organisation calls for more funds as 2,512 cases are confirmed in the region

The Ebola epidemic in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is a public health emergency of international concern, the World Health Organization has declared, calling for more funds and support to close it down.

The second biggest Ebola outbreak ever, after the 2014-16 epidemic in west Africa, has reached a critical point with the diagnosis of a case in Goma, a city of 2 million people, which is a transport hub on the border with Rwanda. That follows the case last week of a women who crossed into Uganda to buy fish – and the arrival of a family harbouring the virus, three of whom died, in Uganda last month.

It is 31 years since Seve Ballesteros became the last Spaniard to lift the Claret Jug. Since then Jos? Mar?a Olaz?bal and Sergio Garc?a have come close, only to slide away at the crunch. But on the eve of the 148th Open Championship Jon Rahm appears to have the punch and panache to walk in the footsteps of his hero.

The tempestuous 24-year-old has finished third or better in his last three starts, including victory at the Irish Open in Lahinch a fortnight ago and a podium finish at the US Open, and he relishes playing in the grimy Irish weather.

22. Our prime minister is now the embarrassing party guest who has outstayed her welcome | John CraceСр., 17 июля[−]

Theresa May’s lack of self-awareness comes to the fore as she makes her final speech as PM

All that remains for Theresa May is her legacy. Such as it is. Being regarded as one of the worst ever prime ministers is something of a hollow crown, and for the past few weeks she has been visibly vanishing before our eyes. A flickering hologram at best. Now she enters rooms almost unnoticed, the embarrassing guest who has outstayed her welcome at a party that was over before it had even really begun. But still she rages against the dying of the light, determined to give one more speech to remind us all why she would so soon be completely forgotten.

For her latest final valediction – no one can rule out further acts of self-destruction with final, final speeches – May had chosen a basement room of the international affairs thinktank Chatham House. She had also asked for five seats to be removed from the room, so that no sketch writers could witness her humiliation. Unfortunately no one had warned her it was to be televised. There’s going to be hell to pay when she finds out, for what followed was – even by her own standards – a complete car crash.

Ross Brawn, F1’s sporting director, has been leading the investigation of ways to reinvent the sport. The most detailed version of their vision, including an intent to bring back the “wow” factor, was unveiled on Wednesday.

24. After being catfished, I lost trust in the world – but I am anything but a damaged soul | Stephanie WoodСр., 17 июля[−]

The author of Fake, Guardian Australia’s new Unmissable book, says her story is far more than ‘lonely childless woman who fell for a fraud’

In 2013, I wrote my first “personal essay”. I told the world that I frequently felt acutely lonely. Even then, two years before Slate declared there were too many of these “solo acts of sensational disclosure” and four years before Jia Tolentino wrote a piece for the New Yorker carrying the headline “The personal-essay boom is over”, I feared there was something potentially unseemly about airing my private agonies.

The author of the Slate article, Laura Bennett, called essays such as How I Came to Forgive My Rapist (Vox) and My Gynaecologist Found a Ball of Cat Hair in My Vagina (xoJane) “professional dead ends, journalistically speaking”.

25. Manmade Antarctic snowstorm 'could save coastal cities from rising seas'Ср., 17 июля[−]

Blowing trillions of tonnes of snow on to ice sheet could halt its collapse, researchers say

Spraying trillions of tons of snow over west Antarctica could halt the ice sheet’s collapse and save coastal cities across the world from sea level rise, according to a new study.

The colossal geoengineering project would need energy from at least 12,000 wind turbines to power giant seawater pumps and snow cannons, and would destroy a unique natural reserve. The scientists are not advocating for such a project, but said its apparent “absurdity” reflects the extraordinary scale of threat from rising sea level.

Airline provokes outcry with response after woman says she was asked to cover herself with a blanket

The Dutch airline KLM is facing a storm of protest after warning that women who breastfeed their babies on its flights may be asked to cover up to avoid offending other passengers.

The company’s policy emerged after a woman claimed on Facebook she had been asked to shield herself from view while feeding her one-year-old on a flight between San Francisco and Amsterdam last month.

28. Zack Seckler's best photograph: wild Iceland from the airСр., 17 июля[−]

‘The pilot flew me around the volcanic coast in his tiny homemade plane – with the door open and me hanging out taking pictures’

I shot this off the southern coast of Iceland, from a ultra-light aircraft, in the days before drones were ubiquitous. I love the stark nature of the Icelandic landscape and its contrasts. Deltas form from glacial meltwater running down towards the shoreline, picking up silt and different materials along the way to create these ribbon patterns. There’s all sorts of wildlife too – birds, beautiful wild horses, seals.

So a few years ago after a lot of research, cross-referencing Google Earth with books and photography by others, I took a red eye from New York to Reykjavik. It was kind of funny to take a jumbo jet, have three hours upon landing to rent a car, check into my hotel and nap for 20 minutes and then turn around to meet a pilot and spend the day up in the air again in his homemade plane.

We’ve been putting veg in our smoothies for ages – but then sweetening them with fruits and milks. Now, on the back of the sugar-free movement, it’s time to go fully green

Propelled by the sugar-free movement, it’s time to embrace – and imbibe – the savoury smoothie. As the US writer Sarah Barnes recently observed, “in the realm of edible stuff that might make me immortal, are we all drinking our salads now?”

Of course, people have been putting veg – mostly green leaves – in smoothies for ages, but blending them with the likes of dates, bananas, berries, nut butters and milk. With savoury smoothies, veg takes centre stage, and is often the only ingredient. Think of it as a cold soup in a tall glass, your morning smoothie regreened, with no sugar rush and subsequent hunger pangs; the veg’s fibre hasn’t been juiced out of existence and you have a bank of classic salads from which to take inspiration.

33. Impostor syndrome is a response to a world that doesn’t believe in womenСр., 17 июля[−]

New research shows the emotional exhaustion caused by it bleeds into our home life – but women are somehow expected to find a remedy within themselves

Impostor syndrome ( originally defined, in 1978, as when “despite outstanding accomplishments, women [persist] in believing that they are really not bright and have fooled anyone who thinks otherwise”) has been a talking point for years. And while the discussion has been important, it has slowly reduced an all-too-real experience to a buzzword. As something that more often affects women – a recent study showed that 66% of women had experienced it, compared with just over half of men – perhaps it isn’t surprising it isn’t taken particularly seriously.

But now, new research has shown that the very real, very negative effects of impostor syndrome are felt not just at the workplace, but at home. Employees experiencing impostor syndrome suffer from emotional exhaustion, which leads to a conflict between work and family life and dissatisfaction with the latter. While the idea that an issue at work can affect you at home may sound unsurprising, researchers hope that the results will finally add “legitimacy to discussing impostor phenomenon as an important talent-development issue”. And I hope it will add legitimacy to the conversation about impostor syndrome more generally.

40. Archie Panjabi: ‘Not getting on Eastenders didn’t turn out too badly’Ср., 17 июля[−]

Rejected by the soap three times, the British star was told an ‘Indian actress’ wouldn’t make it in Hollywood. Now she’s in demand both sides of the Atlantic ... just don’t ask about The Good Wife

It says a lot about British actor Archie Panjabi that the best piece of advice she says she ever received was when an Indian agent told her that an Indian woman would never make it in Hollywood. It’s a story that would leave most of us shaking our heads at the sheer state of things. But for Panjabi, a gauntlet was thrown down. “It made me realise how hard it would be,” she recalls. A decade on from that advice, she is in London to promote her latest star-studded show, Departure, in which her ethnicity is as irrelevant as her stellar Hollywood status is germane.

Panjabi’s fans, of course, won’t be surprised. The actor has a 25-year-long, Atlantic-spanning film and TV career under her belt, as well as a reputation for philanthropic clout. She guest-edited last year’s special race issue of the UK National Geographic; she’s been consistently vocal about women’s rights, working on everything from Amnesty International’s Stop Violence Against Women campaign to the 10x10 project to promote education for girls. While she is more effusive and gentle in person than most of the roles she’s famous for would suggest (at one point her PR sneezes during our interview; she’s instantly asking if he’s ok, offering him a drink, handing out throat lozenges …), you sense she’s as tough as any of the characters she’s portrayed.

43. Real fans should have been at the Cricket World Cup final – not freeloaders | Adrian ChilesСр., 17 июля[−]

Long-suffering cricket fanatics would have given their right stumps for a ticket – but instead Lord’s was full of corporate clients on a jolly

On Sunday I received texts from various friends who were at Lord’s for the Cricket World Cup final. One thing they had in common was that, in all the years I’ve known them, never have they betrayed the remotest interest in the sport. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever heard any of them so much as utter the word “cricket”. Yet they were there and I wasn’t. I couldn’t get a ticket. I’m not bitter on my account, but I am gutted on behalf of so many long-suffering, hard-travelling cricket fans who would have given their right stumps to have been there.

Even if I had been offered a ticket I would have had to refuse it, or at least not accept it until I’d called at least three people I know who would have been more deserving cases. I’ve watched plenty of county cricket, and fought for Test match tickets tooth and nail. It was even my privilege once to travel to Cape Town to watch England lose a test match at Newlands in less than three days. I’ve done my time. And yet, relative to my cricket-fanatic friends, I wouldn’t have felt worthy of a ticket for Sunday’s final. The guilt of being there while they weren’t would have been too much.

44. 'Not a dustbin': Cambodia to send plastic waste back to the US and CanadaСр., 17 июля[−]

Country vows to return 1,600 tonnes of waste as south-east Asian countries revolt against an onslaught of rubbish shipments

Cambodia has announced it will send 1,600 tonnes of plastic waste found in shipping containers back to the US and Canada, as south-east Asian countries revolt against an onslaught of rubbish shipments.

China’s decision to ban foreign plastic waste imports last year threw global recycling into chaos, leaving developed nations struggling to find countries to send their trash.

45. The new rules of holiday eating: ditch TripAdvisor, embrace disaster, and make a plan for when you're 'hangry'Ср., 17 июля[−]

Dining out while away can lead to meltdowns. From setting a budget to finding a place to eat, here’s how to make the most of your mealtimes away from home

Eating out on holiday is considered a treat. And on one level, it is. You have enough cash to blow on a plate of pasta puttanesca that tastes the same as the one you make at home, but is slightly superior because you are eating it while wearing perfume in an artfully dilapidated alleyway. That’s not something to sniff at.

Ultimately, however, while there may be a small number of eerily well-adjusted weirdos who disagree, for the rest of us dining out while away spells meltdown: skipping sightseeing to obsess over TripAdvisor reviews; arguing with holiday companions over whose dietary preferences should take priority; wasting hours trying to locate a joint that suits both your pescatarian girlfriend and your raging carnivore of a dad.

46. We shouldn’t have to live in a world where women are afraid to say no | Ellie Mae O’HaganСр., 17 июля[−]
The assault on a Manchester teen who refused a man’s advances shows why we need a new set of values

Some years ago, I worked for a man several decades older than me who consistently made oleaginous and sexualised comments to me and the other young women in our workplace. He was completely oblivious to the fact that our disgust towards him was a shared point of bonding, and that we would wince every time he was in the building; I expect because every time he said something we would force a smile, entrenching his delusion that we actually enjoyed his behaviour.

I thought about him again this week when I read that the Manchester teenager Gabrielle Walsh had been knocked unconscious after she told a man who followed her from a nightclub: “I’m sorry, I’m not interested.” Although Walsh’s experience is much more extreme and frightening than mine, both examples reveal the reluctance women feel to rebut a man’s unwanted advances when he holds some sort of power – be it physical or economic. In the wee small hours when alcohol is flowing, perhaps a man will just be crazy enough to physically harm you if you tell him no. If that man is your boss, maybe you’ll find your work life becoming that little bit harder after you inform him that what he regards as swashbuckling charm is actually sexual harassment.

48. Why the joke Facebook page calling for people to storm Area 51 went viralСр., 17 июля[−]

More than a million people have actually RSVP’d – and the military have issued a serious response.

The truth is out there, and there are grand plans to find it. As of Monday, 1.1 million people had RSVP’d to a Facebook event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us”. As the name suggests, the plan is to storm Area 51 – the notorious Nevada military base associated with extraterrestrial conspiracy theories. “We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry,” the event description reads. “If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.” If you have never seen the popular internet memes of “naruto running”, you have time to track one down: the daring ambush is scheduled for 3am on 20 September.

As you may have surmised, the Area 51 plan – which was organised by an anonymous user called “Shitposting cause im in shambles” – is a joke. The US military, however, does not seem to find the viral event very funny. The US Air Force told the Washington Post that “[Area 51] is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces. The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.” Which boils down to: if you try to “see them aliens” you are going to get shot.

50. Democrats are right to condemn Trump’s racism, but they risk walking into his trap | Jonathan FreedlandСр., 17 июля[−]

Trump is banking on his race-baiting winning him votes. Democrats will have to navigate a tricky course to stop him

You’d think it would happen all the time. Given how often they’re drawn from different parties, it should be routine for the US House of Representatives to condemn the president. In fact, it’s rare. Until last night, the House had not made that formal move since it admonished William Howard Taft more than a century ago. So Donald Trump has earned himself yet another place in the history books, rebuked by the House late Tuesday night for telling four members of that body – all women of colour, three of them born in the US and all American citizens – to “go back” to where they came from.

For anyone opposed to prejudice and bigotry, the moral argument for the resolution is unassailable. Not many would want to dispute the text’s contention that “President Donald Trump’s racist comments ... have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.” That is little more than a statement of the truth. Proof came swiftly, when presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway referred to the four Congresswomen as “the dark underbelly” of America and, following a question about the issue during a press huddle, immediately asked the (Jewish) reporter who had asked it, “What’s your ethnicity?”

Outside the French Riviera, inauthentic versions of salade ni?oise abound, much to the chagrin of purists. Here’s the classic French salad as it is meant to be made

If salade ni?oise were sentient, rather than a salad, it would sue for defamation of character, such are the abuses heaped upon it in the name of culinary innovation. Indeed, one of Nice’s most notorious sons, former mayor Jacques M?decin, wrote of the trauma of seeing ‘the remains of other people’s meals being served under the name salade ni?oise’. I think he’d approve of this one, though.

52. Andrea Camilleri obituaryСр., 17 июля[−]

Prolific author of the Inspector Montalbano detective novels

Had Andrea Camilleri died in his 50s, his obituary would certainly not have been published in the Guardian. His death might have been noted in the cultural sections of the odd Italian newspaper and it would doubtless have merited a substantial article in the journal of Italy’s pre-eminent drama school, the Accademia Nazionale d’Arte Drammatica, where Camilleri was for many years in charge of teaching directing.

The article might have detailed the achievements of an avant-garde, leftwing intellectual who had had a significant influence on theatre and television in Italy while remaining largely unknown to the general public. It would probably have skipped over the fact that, some years earlier, Camilleri had tried his hand at writing historical novels, but given up after meeting with little success beyond the award of an obscure literary prize, handed out by a town council in his native Sicily.

53. Tattoos, tans and techno: the photographers capturing the unseen BeirutСр., 17 июля[−]

Ravers, semi-naked sun-worshippers, booming queer culture … we meet the photographers chronicling a new generation of Lebanese shaking off the trauma of civil war

‘Parties are a privileged place, a space for exploration, a time for fusion,” says photographer Cha Gonzalez. They’re also the focus of her series Abandon, which looks at the way some Lebanese people have used nightlife – and techno music in particular – as a release after the trauma of the country’s 15-year civil war, which ended in 1990. “I knew a lot of people who were either born during the war or in exile,” she says. “What was put aside during the day came to light – and their internal struggles surfaced.”

Abandon is a pertinent theme not only for Gonzalez, but for all of the 16 contributors to an exhibition in Paris called C’est Beyrouth (This Is Beirut), at the Institut des Cultures d’Islam. Gonzalez in particular seized on the city’s dance scene, and later continued the series in Paris, where she lives, because “there was something to say about countries that are very far from war as well. The war is inside us: how we feel useless, alone, bored, guilty, horny.”

55. How the wig got bigСр., 17 июля[−]

They are loved by celebrities from Katy Perry to Cardi B, are all over the catwalks and selling out fast on the high street. Is this the summer’s most hair-raising trend?

Outside of the the black community, wig-wearing in popular culture has traditionally fallen into two camps: fancy dress or hair-loss solution. Occasionally, celebrities have flirted with wigs to define their look – Tina Turner or Cher – but whispers of “it’s a wig” are not often positive. That, however, is beginning to change.

Last month, Paris Hilton revealed she has a collection of more than 800 wigs, albeit some of which she uses for going “undercover”. During this month’s Wireless festival, Cardi B removed her wig and threw it into the crowd, before requesting its return on Instagram. Katy Perry took to Instagram to remove a bouncy blond wig, revealing longer, blonder hair beneath (also thought to be a wig). Kylie Jenner, who, like the rest of the Kardashian clan, is best known for sporting long, dark locks, opted for a short, blond wig with a fringe on a highly publicised night out. And it’s not long, of course, since Jenner wore a lengthy, purple, mermaid-esque wig that matched her dress to this year’s Met Gala (three years after she claimed to have started the wig trend, to much derision). The first trailer for the forthcoming Charlie’s Angels film was so wig-filled that, in less than 24 hours, New York magazine’s style pages ran a wigtastic roundup.

A mixed second season of the female-fronted drama is coming to a close and some big questions are set to be answered

It’s quite possible that the coming second season finale of Big Little Lies will be the last time we’ll check in with the Monterey Five. Earlier this year, HBO’s president, Casey Bloys, said that the prospect of a third season was “not realistic”. “I love this group of people – I would do anything with them,” Bloys told TV Line. “But the reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood.” He may be bluffing. I imagine, if it dominates awards season again, they might all find time in their schedules.

It sounds like a typical classroom scene, but their school, say students, is unlike any other. The children are growing up in Jerusalem, a city at the heart of the Israel and Palestine conflict, where communities are deeply divided. Max Rayne Hand in Hand school is the only place in Jerusalem where students from Jewish and Arab backgrounds learn together, studying a bilingual and multicultural curriculum.

Photographs by Claudio Fr?as

“I was born and raised beside a roaring fire,” says Yasna Seguel proudly, as wet snowflakes tap against the kitchen window behind her and orange flames warm an outstretched palm. A tobacco-yellow stain soaks into the table cloth as she sets her mate gourd down to select a fresh log for the fire.

Every evening through the bitterly cold winter months of June and July, the southern city of Coyhaique, the most populous in the region of Ays?n in Chilean Patagonia, is smothered by a thick, fragrant blanket of damp wood smoke that clings to the hillsides.

62. Gym, eat, repeat: the shocking rise of muscle dysmorphiaСр., 17 июля[−]

The idealised male body has become bigger, bulkier and harder to achieve. So what drives a generation of young men to the all-consuming, often dangerous pursuit of perfection?

It is difficult for Miles to pinpoint the moment his muscle dysmorphia started. It was just always there, a background hum. “As far back as I can remember, I wanted a better-looking body,” says the 35-year-old US soldier, now stationed in Mons, Belgium. When he was 13, Miles spent a summer cutting grass to save up for a secondhand Soloflex exercise machine. The machine cost $1,000 (?800), but as Miles was too young to join a gym, it was worth the expense. With the help of the Soloflex, Miles started weight training and never looked back.

When he returned from a posting to Afghanistan at 24, things spiralled. He began obsessively working out and regimenting his meals. “I went all in ... it was full, hardcore dedication to the lifestyle.” Miles set his watch to beep every three hours, to remind him to eat. If it beeped when he was driving, he would pull over. Slowly, he whittled his body into shape. His muscles became striated, every fibre visible. Not big enough. At 95kg (210lbs) and 1.8 metres (6ft 2in), Miles wanted to be more muscular; leaner. He lost 22kg and started competing in amateur bodybuilding competitions. There was virtually no fat on him. “You pinch your skin and it just stays pinched.” His girlfriend left him. “She began to realise that my body dysmorphia was like dating another person.” The pursuit of muscularity took over his life. “I just thought, I am so lean, and shredded, and veiny, and masculine – I don’t ever want to go back to how I was before.”

63. April Dawn Alison's photography: 'the unregulated expression of and for the self'Ср., 17 июля[−]

Alison reveals a self-contained world where a deeply internalized identity is produced and seen

In April Dawn Alison’s photography, her solitude manifests an interior space where art and sexuality coincide, where a singular body represents divergent selves – creator and object, dominator and subjugated. We witness a self-contained world where a deeply internalized identity is produced and seen, and an ordinary space of domesticity becomes a stage for fantasy and unrestrained possibility.

While April Dawn Alison was creating feminine personas in the privacy of her Oakland apartment, I was a young adolescent in Syracuse, New York, diving into a chest of dress-up clothes that my mother kept in the basement. While Alison was creating alternate selves for the audience of a camera alone, my father, per my instructions, was taking Polaroids of me. While April Dawn Alison was meticulously filing her encyclopedia of selves, which are masterfully assembled in this book, I was sticking photos in a dime-store photo album that encapsulated the sum total of my life as a girl.

64. Perhaps the best dinosaur fossil ever discovered. So why has hardly anyone seen it?Ср., 17 июля[−]

A Montana rancher found two skeletons in combat – the Dueling Dinosaurs. But who do they belong to, and will the public ever see them?

The early June morning in Montana was already very hot and dry by 7.30, when Clayton Phipps and his friend, Mark Eatman, set out to search for fossils. Phipps, a rancher who calls himself the Dino Cowboy, was wearing his trademark black felt Stetson cattleman hat.

The two had gone bone collecting before, but they were joined on this day for the first time by Phipps’s cousin, Chad O’Connor. The trio fanned out to hike through the badlands of what they thought was the Judith River Formation; later, they would learn they had actually been in an area called Hell Creek, a division of gray and ochre sandstone, shale and clay deposited about 66m years ago during the Late Cretaceous, when the area was a swampy floodplain.

65. The greatest photos ever? Why the moon landing shots are artistic masterpiecesСр., 17 июля[−]

From a spacesuited everyman to a golden-legged invader, the lunar images were astonishingly poetic works of art that captured humanity evolving before our very eyes. Can they ever be surpassed?

Fifty years ago this week, a former navy pilot created one of the most revolutionary artistic masterpieces of the 20th century, one we have yet to fully assimilate. His name was Neil Armstrong and his astonishing act of creativity is a photograph of his Apollo 11 crewmate Buzz Aldrin standing on the Sea of Tranquillity on the moon. Not that you can see Aldrin’s face. His features and flesh are hidden inside a thickly padded white spacesuit, its visor reflecting the tiny figure of Armstrong himself, beside the gold-coloured legs of the lunar lander.

This effacement of Aldrin came about because Apollo astronauts wore visors lined with gold to protect their eyes from sunlight. Yet these reflective qualities are part of what makes this such a powerful, complex image, one in which we can see two lunar horizons. Behind Aldrin, the moon’s bright surface recedes to a blue horizon against the black void of space. Meanwhile, reflected and warped by the helmet, the other horizon stretches away behind Armstrong. The photographer has incorporated the making of the image into the image, to tell the story of something new in the universe: two human beings looking at each other across the dusty surface of an alien world.

On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission that first put humans on the moon, Richard Godwin explores why conspiracy theories about the landings still endure. Plus Geoff Andrews on his part in the Guardian’s lunar front page from 1969 – and how he missed the famous quote

It took 400,000 Nasa employees and contractors to put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon in 1969 – but only one man to spread the idea that it was all a hoax. His name was Bill Kaysing.

It began as “a hunch, an intuition”, before turning into “a true conviction” – that the US lacked the technical prowess to make it to the moon (or, at least, to the moon and back). Richard Godwin tells Anushka Asthana how Kaysing’s self-published 1976 pamphlet We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle sought to provide evidence for his conviction by means of grainy photocopies and ludicrous theories. Yet somehow he established a few perennials that are kept alive to this day in Hollywood movies and Fox News documentaries, Reddit forums and YouTube channels.

As he hopes to take over as prime minister, his biographers Sonia Purnell and Andrew Gimson look at what his career in newspapers says about his character and abilities for the top job in UK politics. Plus: Sabrina Siddiqui on the widespread condemnation of Donald Trump’s racist remarks about four congresswomen

Before entering politics, Boris Johnson made his name first as a reporter and then a columnist rising to fame with the Daily Telegraph and then the Spectator. But it was not always a smooth ascent: he was sacked from the Times as a graduate trainee for making up a quote and as a Brussels correspondent generating dozens of controversial stories that poked fun at the EU institutions and refashioned Euroscepticism in the UK years before the Brexit vote.

But one particular incident stands out: so-called ‘ Guppygate’. In 1990, Johnson was secretly recorded agreeing to provide the address of the News of the World reporter Stuart Collier to his friend Darius Guppy, who wanted to arrange for the journalist to have his ribs cracked as revenge for investigating his activities. Collier has told the Guardian he wants a full apology from Johnson.

Trump did not name his targets, but the attack was directed at a group of liberal congresswomen who have had a run-in with the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, and who are sometimes referred to as 'the Squad': Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota

This week Guardian Cities has been exploring cities built from scratch around the world. Here’s a roundup of readers’ experiences – from Harlow to Perth, Shannon to Islamabad

Perth really is about as bland a built environment as you could imagine, luckily set on amazing natural beauty. But its planning is still rooted firmly in 1950s style suburbia and auto dependence. Car ownership is one of the highest in Australia, which nationally is one of the highest in the world. Vibrancy is lacking, community occurs despite, not encouraged by, the built environment. Walking is hardly done, and the streets of suburbia are deserted as everyone drives.
