1. Manchester City pay price for carelessness with shock loss to Lyon00:46[−]

Pep Guardiola confessed before this game to becoming frustrated at Manchester City’s inability to do the simple things well. He will be closer to furious now that his side have lost ground in the Champions League with their most inept performance of the season, the English champions being made to look amateurish at times by the side that finished third in Ligue 1 last season.

2. US wants to restart nuclear talks with Pyongyang after North-South summit00:40[−]

Trump hails ‘tremendous progress’ as analysts warn the two leaders have different ideas of what denuclearization entails

The US has said it is ready to “immediately” restart stalled negotiations with North Korea about nuclear disarmament in light of agreements reached at a summit of the two Koreas in Pyongyang.

At that meeting, the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, promised to dismantle a missile engine test site and launch pad, and made a conditional offer to shut down his country’s main nuclear complex at Yongbyon.

3. Theresa May tells EU27 she won't delay Brexit despite lack of a deal00:30[−]

Comments at Salzburg summit aimed at pressuring EU to be more flexible in future talks

Theresa May has tried to threaten EU leaders over dinner at a special summit in Salzburg by telling them the UK would not seek to delay Brexit, prompting European leaders to warn that the two sides remained far apart on trade and the Irish border despite months of negotiations.

The prime minister told her counterparts “that the UK will leave on 29 March next year” and as a result “the onus is now on all of us to get this deal done” by the end of an emergency summit that the EU confirmed would happen in mid-November.

4. Real Madrid begin Champions League defence by easing to win over Roma00:09[−]

It was just one night in Madrid but by the end of it, Real’s fans left the Santiago Bernab?u wondering if this team might be better than the one that won three European Cups in a row.

Zinedine Zidane has gone, Cristiano Ronaldo has gone too, sent off 400 kilometres away in Valencia, but the rest of that team remains. It may even have been reborn; it has certainly been redefined. Perhaps no one looks set to benefit quite like Gareth Bale, withdrawn to a standing ovation here.

5. Storm Ali: two killed as 100mph winds lash UK and IrelandСр., 19 сент.[−]

Woman in Galway and man in County Down die during first named storm of season

Two people have died and several others have required hospital treatment as Storm Ali swept across the north of Ireland, central Scotland and northern England on Wednesday with winds of over 100mph.

Throughout the day, thousands were left without power, or facing severe travel disruption as lorries overturned, roads were blocked by falling trees and train services were cancelled while, in south-west Scotland, children were banned from walking home from school because of the risk of injury from flying debris.

The mental edge Jos? Mourinho praised in the build-up was evident in a Manchester United victory which must surely be the template for the season.

Fast, cold-eyed and a concerted unit: these were the key components in how the visitors downed Young Boys on an artificial pitch flagged up as awkward but which proved a slick surface for United to show their class.

President says Christine Blasey Ford deserves to be heard but continues to defend his nominee as an ‘outstanding man’

Donald Trump has said it would be “very hard” to imagine that anything happened between his supreme court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused him of sexual assault decades ago.

8. Moon Jae-in is gambling with North Korea – and it could upset the US | Michael H FuchsСр., 19 сент.[−]

Many South Koreans want an improved North-South relationship. But if Moon improves that relationship without denuclearization progress, it could cause a rift with Washington

Imagine you are the president of South Korea. Your country relies on its alliance with the United States as a deterrent against a nuclear-armed North Korea. Donald Trump criticizes your country over trade, spent the better part of a year threatening military strikes against North Korea, and reportedly even drafted a tweet ordering the withdrawal of the family members of US military stationed in South Korea, which would have been interpreted as a prelude to war.

What would you do? You’d rush to ease tensions with North Korea as fast as you could, while trying to mediate between the US and North Korea. And that’s exactly what the world witnessed this week in the third summit this year between the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, and North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un. Mission accomplished – for the moment.

Writer and academic steps down after publishing and defending Jian Ghomeshi piece deemed to be at odds with spirit of #MeToo

Ian Buruma, the writer and academic, has stepped down from the editorship of the New York Review of Books after only 16 months, after he caused outrage by publishing and defending an essay widely deemed to be at odds with the spirit of #MeToo.

The departure of Buruma, only the third editor after Robert Silvers and Barbara Epstein since the magazine was founded in 1963, comes as a jolt so soon after he took over the helm of America’s most prestigious literary journal.

10. Colombia continues to break records for cocaine production, report saysСр., 19 сент.[−]

The South American nation produced a record estimated 1,379 tonnes of cocaine last year – up 31% on 2016

Colombia is desperate to shed its reputation as a nation dogged by the drug trade, but new figures from the United Nations show that it continues to break records for producing cocaine.

In 2017, around 171,000 hectares (423,000 acres) of the South American nation’s land was used to grow coca, the plant whose leaf is the base ingredient of cocaine – up 25,000 hectares (17%) on the year before, according to a report published on Wednesday by the United Nation’s Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

Spanish foreign minister says US president advised tactic to stem migration across the Med

Donald Trump suggested the Spanish government tackled the Mediterranean migration crisis by emulating one of his most famous policies and building a wall across the Sahara desert, the country’s foreign minister has revealed.

According to Josep Borrell, the US president brushed off the scepticism of Spanish diplomats – who pointed out that the Sahara stretched for 3,000 miles – saying: “The Sahara border can’t be bigger than our border with Mexico.”

Before she chose to go public with her story, Christine Blasey Ford was best known as a university professor, who lived in Palo Alto, California, with her husband and two teenage sons.

Now, the woman who has accused the supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault has been forced out of her home by threats and harassment, her lawyers say.

Muted-toned minimalism with a masculine-feminine twist dominated the collection

Milan fashion week began in late summer heat with the remnants of Hurricane Florence disrupting some flights. With Gucci absent from the September schedule – the Italian brand will show instead at Paris next week – the floor is open for the remaining designers to make a mark.

That was the aim at Jil Sander, according to the husband and wife designers Luke and Lucie Meier, who on Wednesday showed their third collection since taking over the 50-year old-brand.

14. Rat poison, Prezzo and the Russian model: an odd Salisbury subplotСр., 19 сент.[−]

In the wake of the novichok incidents, has the city fallen victim to a hoax?

The saga of the Salisbury nerve agent poisonings is long, twisty and dark, but when the book or film comes out, the story of the Russian lingerie model, the rat poison and the Italian restaurant may emerge as one of the more bizarre subplots.

At the centre of this subplot is Anna Shapiro, a Russian-born model who has claimed that she and her husband, Alex King, were targeted by Moscow at the weekend a few metres from the bench where the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, collapsed after being poisoned with the nerve agent novichok.

15. 'Isis will be looking for targets': guns and fear mark Afghan AshuraСр., 19 сент.[−]

Shias in Kabul prepared for annual commemorations by scrambling to arm themselves

Two months ago, Mohammed Murtaza Turkmeni gathered up his savings and bought his first Kalashnikov. He was born, educated and started a family against the backdrop of Afghanistan’s civil war, but until now the 27-year-old telecoms engineer had never fought or wanted to fight.

This year, he didn’t feel he had a choice. He is one of hundreds of men from Kabul’s Shia population who have taken up arms to protect themselves and their community during Ashura, a ceremony that has been a frequent target for sectarian attacks from Pakistan to Iraq.

Residents’ groups are kicking back against the latest in a long list of banned activities

Authorities in Venice have proposed banning people from sitting and lying on the ground as the city pursues its quest to clamp down on what some officials describe as “boorish” tourists.

The potential rule was suggested by the mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, and would mean transgressors being fined between €50 and €500 if implemented.

The World Anti-Doping Agency is set to ignore widespread anger from athletes’ groups and the anti-doping community by lifting the ban on the Russian Anti-Doping Agency when its 12-strong executive committee meets in the Seychelles on Thursday.

With at least nine members of the committee reckoned to support the “compromise” deal proposed by the Wada president, Craig Reedie, and director general, Olivier Niggli, to the Russian minister of sport, groups opposed to allowing Russia back are fearing the worst.

18. Labour’s plans for democracy must begin at home | Owen JonesСр., 19 сент.[−]
Too many in the party want to deny its grassroots a say over the selection of MPs. This could hold back future stars

Socialism is the democratisation of every level of society, or it is nothing. It is based on an understanding that the concentration of wealth and power leaves democracy hollowed out, and that simply trooping to a polling station every few years is an insufficient counterweight to the behemoths of global capital. Under the prevailing system, the same vested interests remain in power whoever is in office, which is why a transformative government must seek to democratise the workplace, the economy and all of society’s pivotal structures, from the media to local government. But if this is Labour’s mission, it must surely begin at home; and here, the noises are distinctly mixed.

A future contest could feature no candidate aligned with the grassroots of one of the biggest parties in Europe

Donald Trump has promised that North and South Carolina will receive strong federal support as they recover from the devastation of Hurricane Florence, whose floodwaters continue to threaten the region.

“We’re going to be there 100%,” Trump told officials at a briefing shortly after arriving at the Marine Corps air station Cherry Point in Havelock, North Carolina. “There will be nothing left undone. You’ll have everything you need.”

20. Why female superheroes shouldn’t hit old ladies | Zoe WilliamsСр., 19 сент.[−]

The new female Captain Marvel does just that in a film trailer – Superman would never be allowed to stoop so low. What’s going on?

The trailer for Captain Marvel has landed. I always find it hard to tell someone’s superpower from a trailer – it all moves so fast – but I know she can breathe fire out of her eyes, and I can see quite plainly that she is female, the first of her kind, unless you count Wonder Woman, or Lara Croft, which for reasons relating to comic franchises, we do not. Apart from the eyes, some obligatory superhero amnesia and a bit of kinetic energy, the main thing we see is the Captain punching an old lady. In the fullness of the film, it will doubtless transpire that the old lady was a well-disguised mutant, or carrying a nuclear bomb; in the thrill of the trailer, we take these things on trust. The Captain, being female, must have a sound reason.

You would never see Superman do such a thing, even if the lady did have a nuclear bomb: it would be too visually uncomfortable. Some studio exec would say: “Can’t we make the old lady a hyena?” And everyone would nod and say: “That’s why he’s paid the big bucks.”

21. Of course girls feel miserable. They can’t move freely in the world | Suzanne MooreСр., 19 сент.[−]

Yet another survey tells us fewer girls are happy or confident. Let’s be honest – in the end, this is down to male violence

Another day, another headline about the unhappiness of girls. The latest one is from a survey that finds a “sharp decline in the happiness of young women and girls”. The Girlguiding organisation found that only 25% of girls between the ages of seven and 21 are “very happy”. Whereas in 2009, 41% said they were. The older they are, the unhappier they become: 27% of 17- to 21-year-olds said they did not feel happy, whereas as in 2009 only 11% did.

What does this mean? How do we measure happiness? Who is very happy or expects to be? What teenager is bouncing round with sheer joy? Who declares themselves happy all the time?

22. Jesse Rieser’s best photograph: footballers say goodbye to the gameСр., 19 сент.[−]

‘I’ve had hip surgery once, shoulder surgery twice, my left knee needs replacing and my back is ruined. This was their farewell to football – and mine too’

Football was everything to me in my teenage years. My father and grandfather played, so there was never any question that I would. But when I was offered football scholarships, I turned them down to study the arts. Coming back 20 years later to shoot the game I gave up for photography gave me a rush of nostalgia.

This shot is of the Vikings, a high-school team in Phoenix, Arizona. I chose this school because it was like the one I attended, with the same vast array of social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. I spent the whole season with the Vikings, getting to know the boys and their families. I realised how much the game meant to them – and how much it still means to me.

23. How Bert and Ernie could be role models for all the gay puppetsСр., 19 сент.[−]
Outed by their creator, re-closeted by their Sesame Street bosses, the odd couple are blazing a trail for long-denied puppet rights

Like Piers Morgan – and I don’t enjoy agreeing with him – I assumed Bert and Ernie had come out many years ago. But following Mark Salzman’s claim that he wrote Bert and Ernie as gay, Sesame Street workshop issued a swift joykill of a statement, denying this was the case and thrusting the loving muppets firmly to the back of the closet. Morgan, like many on social media, lambasted the unnecessary denial.

I’m with a lot of Twitter users: if Miss Piggy is allowed to lust after her frog lover (won’t someone think of the pigspawn?), Bert and Ernie should be allowed to march in the Puppet Pride parade.

24. Alexa – can you teach my kids some manners, please?Ср., 19 сент.[−]
As voice-controlled AI creeps into millions of homes, a modern dilemma presents itself: how does one properly address a virtual being?

The work of an etiquette expert is never-ending. No sooner have you adjusted to a world in which the households you advise may have few or – whisper it – no staff, than the technology giants develop personal assistants using artificial intelligence.

It is a whole new minefield and, as the Times reports, one already developing new expertise. One BBC tech executive told a conference audience on Tuesday that her solution to children developing poor manners due to Alexa, Siri and their rivals (the AI will respond whether you say “please” or not) was for adults in the house to say “please” and “thank you” to the AIs at all times. With that first step in mind, here is our extensive and scientific list of etiquette do’s and don’ts when dealing with your AI assistant:

25. Russian officials call for governor's suspicious election to be annulledСр., 19 сент.[−]

Elections commissioner urges rerun of vote in which Putin allies scored unlikely win

Russian election officials have called for the result of a gubernatorial ballot in the country’s far east to be annulled because of widespread voter fraud, in the first decision of its kind in more than a decade.

Voters in the Primorsky Krai region looked set on Sunday to reject an incumbent governor from the ruling United Russia party, led by allies of Vladimir Putin. A groundswell of support for a Communist party challenger had followed plans to raise the pension age by five years for both men and women, delaying retirement for millions.

26. Romanians in the UK: 'If we go, who will do the jobs after Brexit?' – photo essayСр., 19 сент.[−]

The Guardian meets members of the second largest community of British immigrants, who share their concerns ahead of Brexit in an uncertain climate

Romanians recently overtook the Irish and Indians as the second biggest immigrant community in the UK, but they are among the most vulnerable in the country after Brexit, according to a leading charity advocating for east Europeans in the UK.

Many fill vital jobs that keep Britain’s supermarket shelves stocked, the elderly in care homes fed, and hotel rooms clean, but there have been fears that social and economic isolation among those in the low-skills sector would prove a calamitous mix for the many who would wish to remain in the country after Brexit.

27. My beef with Jordan Peterson's all-cow diet | Emer O'TooleСр., 19 сент.[−]

The psychologist’s daughter Mikhaila invented the beef diet to ease her health problems. It’s best taken with a pinch of salt

The Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson informed listeners of an interview he did recently that he eats only beef, salt, and water, and never cheats. His daughter Mikhaila started him on the regime. While Peterson was careful to stress that he was no dietary expert, and was speaking in a personal capacity, he credits the diet with helping him to lose 50 pounds. Not only that, he says, but he has gained muscle, successfully treated his sleep issues, fatigue, depression, digestion, snoring, and gum disease.

The only downside is that reintroduction of any other food or drink makes him sick; he cites a recent experience when cider produced an “overwhelming sense of impending doom” and prevented him from sleeping for 25 days.

Momentum has said it will not block a debate on Brexit at the Labour conference, meaning the party could see members back a second referendum on the conference floor.

Last year, Momentum steered its delegates to vote on other topics, including housing, the NHS and rail, to swerve a possible vote on single-market membership which could have exposed tensions between the Labour leadership and members.

29. Act your age: why Marvel is obsessed with digitally de-ageing Hollywood starsСр., 19 сент.[−]

Samuel L Jackson the latest veteran to be plunged into Marvel’s digital fountain of youth – this time for a whole film. But is this CGI meddling good for anyone?

Marvel’s habit of de-ageing its veteran Hollywood stars is now something of an obsession. First, in 2016, there was Robert Downey Jr as a slightly weird-looking teenage version of Tony Stark in flashback scenes from Captain America: Civil War. Then there was 1970s, Bee Gee -barneted Kurt Russell in last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. And this week we saw the debut trailer for next March’s Captain Marvel, featuring a version of Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury restored to his 1990s prime for the period-set superhero epic.

Marvel simply cannot resist flinging a paint-bucketful of pixels over any actor over 55, like a kid messing around on Photoshop. Prior to Captain Marvel, the technology has been used primarily for flashback scenes, which are often so stylised and filtered to distinguish them from the “present day” that the faces’ washed-out glaze barely matters. In Captain Marvel, however, Jackson reportedly appears as his younger self for the entire movie.

30. Everyday memories of Addis Ababa – a photo essayСр., 19 сент.[−]

Beginning as a Tumblr page, website VintageAddis.com invites Ethiopians to share old photographs from family archives, and aims to document the lives of communities throughout the 20th century. The web project and Instagram feed started by Philipp Sch?tz, Wongel Abebe and Nafkot Gebeyehu, reveals an intimate view of the city.

Terefe Berlie Asmare moved to Addis Ababa in 1980 and spent much of the next decade driving. He worked at a garage in the Ethiopian capital by day, and studied engineering by night. At weekends he would roam the countryside in his father’s car, with a tent bought from the German embassy in the boot, and a Konica in his pocket.

“I always took the camera with me,” he says, standing in the garden of Addis Ababa’s iconic, though fading, Wabi Shebele hotel, which is still owned by the family of Haile Selassie, Ethiopia’s last emperor.

A ringing endorsement of the strength of Europe’s team for next week’s Ryder Cup has arrived from Tiger Woods, the most high-profile member of the USA contingent who will seek to retain the trophy in France.

Woods, speaking at East Lake on the eve of the PGA Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship, will play in his first Ryder Cup since 2012 after receiving a wildcard pick from Jim Furyk. When asked whether odds-on USA favouritism for the biennial event and the widespread analysis that this is one of their strongest ever teams was valid, the 14-times major champion indulged in what could be interpreted as mind games.

34. The Gardens Between review – a miniature meditative masterworkСр., 19 сент.[−]

PC, PlayStation 4, Mac, Nintendo Switch; The Voxel Agents
With only three buttons, this time-bending story is an impeccably crafted minimalist model of video game and puzzle design

A calm, beautiful game that rewards patience, curiosity and wonder, The Gardens Between tells a bittersweet story with no script and only three buttons. While this time-travelling puzzler does not revolutionise the swelling wave of “chill out” games, it is essential playing for the genre. It will no doubt become a reliable go-to for enticing people of all ages into video games, but it’s also a pleasure for regular players craving something original.

The Gardens Between’s child protagonists are neighbours who escape drab homes using a rope ladder and plastic chair to get to their favourite play area. Here they flee rainy suburbia for adventures in a beaten-up treehouse. Soon, with their wooden hideout deployed as a boat, the duo are whisked on a journey into their own memories. Giant relics of their friendship – a lake-sized paddling pool, a towering bowl of popcorn, a paintbrush taller than a person – are perched on top of islands that sit in boundless bodies of water.

35. Macron aide accused of beating protesters questioned by French senateСр., 19 сент.[−]

Alexandre Benalla says his role for president was more like that of theatre director than bodyguard as he is quizzed by senators

Alexandre Benalla, the security official who sparked the biggest scandal of Emmanuel Macron’s presidency when he was filmed illegally dressed as a police officer beating people on the edge of a demonstration, has told the French senate he wasn’t the president’s official bodyguard but was allowed to carry a handgun because he was concerned for his own safety.

Benalla, a civilian adviser who was close to Macron, sparked a major political scandal this summer when video footage emerged of him illegally dressed as a police officer, beating and kicking two people on the edge of a May Day protest in Paris.

Sentence of Nawaz Sharif and his daughter suspended while appeal against corruption conviction is heard

A Pakistani court has ordered the release from prison of the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam in a move likely to reignite controversy over the disputed general election and end a brief moment of calm in the country’s politics.

The Islamabad high court suspended the Sharifs’ sentences while their appeal was heard against a corruption conviction in July for possessing unexplained wealth. Nawaz had been due to serve 11 years in prison, Maryam eight, and her husband, Muhammad Safdar Awan, one. All three are likely to be released on bail on Wednesday.

OED wants young people to share their ‘particularly elusive’ language, as it evolves through media such as Snapchat and WhatsApp

The venerable Oxford English Dictionary has launched an appeal to teenagers, hoping they can help it get to grips with slippery teenage slang such as “hench” and “dank”.

Citing its aim to “record all distinctive words that shape the language, old and new, formal and informal”, the OED said that slang terms were “always challenging” for dictionary editors to track. Young people’s language today is “particularly elusive”, because terms change rapidly and communication methods such as WhatsApp and Snapchat have made it more difficult to monitor the changing vocabulary.

39. Клуб: the St Petersburg rail factory that became a visionary nightclubСр., 19 сент.[−]

Set in an industrial area far outside the city – and with industrial tracks to match - the nightclub Клуб is putting community before music to create a truly beloved space

Ask Sasha Tsereteli, founder of St Petersburg’s DIY nightclub Клуб, what the most important aspect of his club is and you might be surprised. Despite great success serving nights that span a melange of techno, acid, noise and industrial, he says that community comes first and music second. “It’s always been about getting people together, and seeing what happens,” he explains. “There are enough music clubs in the world so we never really positioned ourselves as one – I think that’s one of our best accomplishments. Although you can only afford to say that when your music programme is impeccable.”

Renowned as the duo who first brought international acts to St Petersburg, Sasha Tsereteli and his partner Julia Si had been running parties for a decade before co-founding Клуб (meaning “klub”) in November 2017. Housed within brutalist infrastructure – a former national railway factory – Клуб is not the kind of club you stumble upon by chance. Much like Berlin’s Berghain, it’s set far from civilisation, in an industrial area just outside the city. “Nobody comes here by accident,” says Tsereteli. “It’s nearly impossible, so we never know how many people will attend an event.”

40. Joy Division inspired me to write – but could I write about their music? | Sophie MackintoshСр., 19 сент.[−]

Man Booker longlisted author Sophie Mackintosh explains how writing a short story based on Unknown Pleasures led her back to the music that made her want to be an author

Two years ago, I received an email inviting me to contribute to a short-story anthology on Joy Division. It would be a literary reimagining of their 1979 debut Unknown Pleasures – the only Joy Division album released during singer Ian Curtis’s lifetime – with each author assigned one of the songs and left free to interpret it however they liked. I was intrigued, especially when I was assigned New Dawn Fades, one of my favourites. I hadn’t listened to Unknown Pleasures properly since my difficult teenage years in the Welsh countryside, but I still remember the vertiginous feeling of hearing it for the first time and thinking, knowing, this album will change my life.

In those days, Joy Division meant sitting on my overcrowded school bus with my Walkman on my lap, staring at the seat in front of me as I listened, and then walking through the corridors of my school with the music still in my ears. Sometimes I pretended I was in a film, a drama that warranted the oceanic rush of my emotions. It meant listening to the music far too loudly on evenings when my parents were not in the house. We had no neighbours, so I could put it up to full volume and let every drumbeat, every bassline, shiver through my whole body. I experienced a fevered kinship with anyone who seemed like they might get it. So when I got the email, and put on Unknown Pleasures for the first time in years, the first staccato, fizzing beats of Disorder took me back in a way I hadn’t anticipated. What sort of story would I write? What would it mean to create something new from something already loaded with meaning for me?

42. Mile 22 review – Mark Wahlberg blunders through chaotic action rompСр., 19 сент.[−]

In his latest collaboration with director Peter Berg, Wahlberg leads a special ops team on a mission to recover stolen batches of nuclear material

Recently Mark Wahlberg startled us all by releasing details of his daily fitness routine. It involves getting up at 2:30am, a half-hour of golf, but three times that long in the shower. What on earth can Mark Wahlberg be doing for 90 minutes in the shower? The answer could well be ... very much what he’s doing over 94 minutes in this film, and it doesn’t involve pleasuring anyone else.

He stars in a chaotically undisciplined and aggressive action movie, coked up on its own machismo, with loads of stuff about what the special forces need to do to keep all the whiny ungrateful civilians safe. It’s another of Wahlberg’s collaborations with director Peter Berg, but without the style of their other films.

43. The medicinal cannabis panel is already failing children like my daughter | Tannine ClarryСр., 19 сент.[−]

CBD oil is being treated as the option of last resort. This is simply no good to my four-year-old and many others

Before I took the decision to try treating my daughter Indie with medicinal cannabis she was on a trial of a “traditional” pharmaceutical drug. My four-year-old has Dravet syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy. It was the eighth different drug that we had tried, none of which had reduced her seizures. We refer to the trial as Indie’s “zombie phase”. For those five harrowing months, Indie spent every waking moment laid on the floor, distressed and “body-rocking”. She would have periods of insomnia lasting up to 40 hours. The stress and worry were indescribable. Our doctors insisted it was the condition causing these symptoms, not the medication. But as a family we had reached our limit. I’d been researching medicinal cannabis over a three-year period, so earlier this year we uprooted our family to Holland.

Indie was treated with a particular type of cannabis oil (CBD oil) that did not contain the psychoactive component THC. The results were striking. Her seizures reduced significantly. We had every intention of staying abroad and extending the medicinal cannabis trial to encompass cannabis oil containing small amounts of THC. Results from other families suggested that the addition of this THC offered the promise of even more dramatic reductions in seizures. But with funds running low, we were forced to return to the UK.

In the largely black neighborhood of Northside, the power is out and resources are scarce. In wealthier Monkey Junction, it’s a different story

Shacory Blanks didn’t know Hurricane Florence was coming towards her home in Wilmington, North Carolina, until just hours before landfall. The 31-year-old doesn’t have a television – she can’t afford one – and she doesn’t listen to the radio. Her nephew told her about it.

The NFL’s Rooney Rule has helped minority head coaches advance their careers. But the racial disparity between offensive and defensive coordinators has never been greater

As the NFL opened another season earlier this month, eight of the NFL’s 32 teams featured a minority head coach, which tied for the most in league history. The Rooney Rule – which requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate for open head coaching and senior football operation roles – has seen a number of minorities climb the NFL coaching ladder in the past two decades.

46. Relax, Londoners. It’s not you but your city that the rest of us can’t stand | Ally FoggСр., 19 сент.[−]
People outside the administrative, political and economic capital blame its residents for their rulers being out of touch

My dear Londoners, please do not fret. The rest of Britain doesn’t really think you’re arrogant and insular. Well, perhaps a little, but we’ll come back to that. We know that you are a city of rich depths and complexity, you are the city of EastEnders and the Notting Hill carnival, Millwall fans and Chelsea Pensioners. We know that London is Brixton, Southall and Golders Green – more than Fleet Street and Whitehall. In TV, cinema, music and comedy, we swim in your currents and bask in your culture. At the same time, if you put a very short list of adjectives to describe Londoners in front of us and ask us to pick three, well yes, we might tick the boxes marked “arrogant” and “insular”. This is less because we adhere to tired regional stereotypes, more because we adhere to the First Law of Silly Questions.

Most respondents said London may be good for the national economy, but those benefits are not felt where they live

48. Rugby union power rankings: All Blacks still No 1 despite rare defeat | Gerard MeagherСр., 19 сент.[−]
A year from the World Cup, New Zealand look good for a hat-trick of titles but Ireland, South Africa and Wales are all on the rise with England and Australia heading in the other direction

Defeat by South Africa in Wellington reminded the world that the All Blacks can be beaten – no bad thing with 12 months to go until the World Cup – but they are still the overwhelming favourites for a third straight win. They were not brilliant against France over the summer but then thrashed Australia twice, displaying an ability to find a gear their opponents cannot live with. It will be fascinating to see their response to defeat; do they add a dose of pragmatism to their blistering style, or do they double down? If the bigger picture continues to pose problems – New Zealand Rugby is expecting to make consistent losses from 2020 onwards and as Lima Sopoaga recently said, the player drain to Europe is not going to stop – Steve Hansen’s side are still setting a considerable pace.

Yes. So, for anyone who has been living under a rock for the past 36 hours, Daniels has indeed written a book in which she describes the president’s penis as “smaller than average … like the mushroom character in Mario Kart”. Try to enjoy your Nintendo Switch now, people.

C?cile Kyenge, an MEP who had bananas thrown at her and was likened to an orangutan during her time as Italy’s integration minister, is being sued for defamation by the far-right interior minister, Matteo Salvini, for calling his party, the League, racist.

Kyenge will face trial in the northern city of Piacenza over comments made in an interview in 2014 during the Festa de l’Unit?, a social democratic event celebrated across Italy each year. She was responding to a photograph posted on social media by Fabio Rainieri, who at the time was party secretary in the Emilia-Romagna region, depicting her as an orangutan.

Syrian war and population growth in parts of Africa hit drive to improve poverty rates

The war in Syria and a population surge in sub-Saharan Africa have undermined efforts to reduce the number of people living in extreme poverty, the World Bank has said.

In its annual report, the Washington-based development agency said the proportion of people living in such conditions had fallen to a new low of 10% in 2015 – the latest number available – down from 11% in 2013. It meant that the number of people living on less than $1.90 a day fell by 68 million to 736 million.

53. Food freestyling: how lateral cooking can turn soda bread into sconesСр., 19 сент.[−]
Niki Segnit’s new book explores the fundamental recipe principles behind everything from noodles to flatbread. One writer is dazzled

A few years ago, I interviewed Primal Scream and received a crash course in full-blown musical obsession. It culminated in a moment where frontman Bobby Gillespie took a deep gulp of air and hurtled through the tracklisting of the Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers LP, pointing out every influence, lyrical steal, arrangement and piece of trivia that went with it, while I sat there trying to find space in my brain to take it all in.

I mention this because food author Niki Segnit seems to be Gillespie’s culinary equivalent. Get her started on the humble flatbread and she will soon start explaining the way it links up with other breads – the Sri Lankan pol roti, say, or Irish soda bread – and before you know it, we are off. Did you know that Irish soda bread is basically the same thing as a scone, and also the cobbler topping of a pie or a stew? And that a few tweaks somewhere along the way can turn this into pizza dough? Or that pizza dough cooked in a slightly different way will make bagels? And actually, if you change the flour for that original flatbread, then you can make Japanese buckwheat noodles – just boil them in green tea and serve with sesame seeds and soy.

Sexual abuse claims against Jean-Claude Arnault led to deferral of literature prize

The Frenchman at the centre of sexual abuse and financial misconduct allegations that forced the postponement of this year’s Nobel prize for literature has appeared in court in Stockholm facing two charges of rape.

Jean-Claude Arnault, who sometimes refers to himself as the Swedish Academy’s 19th member, pushed his way through a crowd of reporters outside the court building and refused to answer questions, saying only: “Leave me alone.” His lawyer, Bj?rn Hurtig, said his client was “absolutely firm in his denial that the alleged offences took place”.

56. How to cook the perfect French apple tart | Felicity CloakeСр., 19 сент.[−]

A properly appley bake with just the right balance of gooeyness and crunch

‘If you look closely,” wrote the late, lamented Lyonnais chef Paul Bocuse, “France is not hexagonal but round, like a tart” – proof that, if you’re a culinary genius, you can say just about anything and people will lap it up. Bocuse is right, however, that, despite its obviously polygonal shape, France is the home of perfect, and often perfectly round, tarts: even the meanest bakery seems to turn out flawless pastry cases full of cr?me pat and seasonal fruit.

Unlike the tarte tatin, which must be served hot from the oven, the classic patissier’s tart can be made well in advance: ideal for impressing guests, or just allowing you to drink a little too much over Sunday lunch and still produce dessert afterwards. And, like all the best showstopper dishes, it’s surprisingly easy to execute. Not that you need to tell anyone that.

Out of the ashes of postwar Rotterdam, the Lijnbaan rose as a ‘living room for the city’ – a revolutionary concept inspiring imitations from Warsaw to Stevenage

A decade after the historic centre of Rotterdam was largely destroyed by bombing during the German invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940, the city set about building a replacement.

The old centre had its faults: narrow streets, alleys and canals that hindered the passage of traffic. The postwar city council seized the opportunity to build a modern centre and straighten the street pattern. The idea was to give Rotterdammers “what they had, but improved and refined”, according to the architect Jo van den Broek, who embodied the optimistic spirit that ruled Rotterdam at the time.

58. PSG are not playing Tuchel football. It may not even be football | Jonathan WilsonСр., 19 сент.[−]
Leaving three forwards to float about and occasionally pull off a trick may be enough in Ligue 1 – but not when it comes to elite level. How have PSG not learned?

A net €750m spent in eight years and that’s all you get? Success without money is all but impossible in the modern game, but wealth brings no guarantees. Football still has the capacity to make the richest of men seem very foolish if they pursue glamour at the expense of substance – a heartening moral, so long as you don’t think too closely about the source of the wealth that is paying for Neymar to squander his immense talents in an entitled fug of self-indulgence.

For Paris Saint-Germain, there has been no development. The lessons of last season have not been learned. All the flaws that undid PSG against Real Madrid in last season’s last 16 were there again at Anfield on Tuesday. Leaving three forwards high up the pitch to float about and occasionally pull off a trick may be enough in Ligue 1 – given PSG have begun the season with five successive wins and have scored at least three goals in every game, it demonstrably is – but it is no way to play against proper opposition. The Air Jordan branding may be intended to add an extra shot of glamour, but in context it appears to say little more than: “Please nutmeg me while I appeal half-heartedly for offside.”

At least one Indian worker has died while cleaning sewers or septic tanks every five days since the beginning of 2017, according to the first official government statistics on the work, considered one of country’s deadliest jobs and most insidious form of caste discrimination.

But activists and the National Commission for Safai Karamacharis (NCSK), the government agency that provided the data, say the real death rate is probably much higher – with many Indian authorities still undercounting the number of such workers in their state.

62. The Letters of Sylvia Plath, Volume II: 1956-1963 – reviewСр., 19 сент.[−]

Infidelity, agony rage ... Plath’s correspondence captures life with Ted Hughes and her terror of being alive

Volume one of the collected letters of Sylvia Plath – one of the most original poets of the 20th century, and a prolific correspondent – ended with her marriage, while studying at Cambridge on a Fulbright scholarship from America, to fellow poet Ted Hughes in June 1956. The second volume begins with her 24th birthday in October. The new Mr and Mrs Hughes are penniless and without a home of their own, but she has absolute faith in him as a writer and human being. He is “a genius”, the best poet “since Yeats & Dylan Thomas”. Inconveniently, he is also unpublished, and has no strategy for getting into print – but Plath is equal to the challenge. She is an old hand at approaching poetry magazines in Britain and her native US and promptly sets herself up as his agent.

By the start of 1957 she has typed up and submitted Hughes’s first book of poetry to a major poetry contest, which he wins. By 1961 her first collection is forthcoming from Heinemann, his second is out with Faber, and they have a daughter, Frieda, with another baby on the way. They have bought an ancient thatched house in Devon – Hughes has always wanted a home in the countryside – and are fixing it up, intending to live off their own land in a bucolic writers’ Eden. “Ted & I had nothing when we got married, & no prospects,” Plath exults to her mother in America before the birth of her son Nicholas in January 1962, but “in 5 years all our most far-fetched dreams have come true”.

New mothers are sharing their horror stories online. But does talking about giving birth traumatise other women – or empower them?

Clare Cashion was 28 weeks pregnant and just about to board a plane home from a family Christmas in Ireland when her waters broke.

She was rushed to hospital in Dublin, where doctors managed temporarily to halt the birth. But there was no longer any question of her safely leaving the country, so while her partner and three older children flew back home to England, Clare stayed behind in hospital. Her son Cullan was eventually born on New Year’s Day by emergency caesarean section, after a labour that was traumatic from the beginning.

The vehicle sped off but was identified and, within hours, police had stopped and reportedly questioned the men and found the weapons. But since then, no arrests have been made or charges levelled and the investigation has stalled.
