EU leaders reject May's idea to salvage her Brexit deal

Thu, 13 Dec 2018 23:39:33 GMT

Juncker tells PM to tell Europe what she wants in ?€?nebulous and imprecise?€? debate

EU leaders delivered a devastating knockback to Theresa May after she appealed to them to hold ?€?nothing in reserve?€? and work with her to salvage her Brexit deal by putting a 12-month limit on the unpopular Irish backstop.

The embattled prime minister had pinned her hopes on a last-ditch effort to persuade the European Union to work with her in devising a legal guarantee, known as a ?€?joint interpretative instrument?€?, that she believes could get her Brexit deal through parliament.

New gangs 'Uberise' Europe's cocaine supply and bring more violence

Fri, 14 Dec 2018 02:02:43 GMT

Rising production from Latin America has led groups from North Africa and the Balkans to change the drug trade, EU agency says

A surge in the supply of pure cocaine to Europe has led to a rise in drug-related murders as new criminal gangs muscle into a market previously dominated by the mafia, the EU drugs agency has said.

The extra output from Latin America, especially by the biggest producer, Colombia has led to growing numbers of gangs including from Morocco and the Balkans setting up their own smuggling lines straight from producers.

Being a father to school-aged daughter 'makes men less sexist'

Fri, 14 Dec 2018 06:01:34 GMT

Author of LSE research says findings show scope for ?€?changing attitude later in life?€?

Being the father of a school-aged daughter makes men less sexist, according to a new study.

The team behind the work say the findings support the idea that men become more aware of the challenges facing women when they see the female experience of life up close through their offspring - something dubbed the ?€?mighty girl?€? effect.

Thu, 13 Dec 2018 21:34:32 GMT

Surveillance fears grow after Taylor Swift uses face recognition tech on fans

Fri, 14 Dec 2018 03:33:59 GMT

Pop star?€?s reported use of software to root out stalkers may be well meant, but it fuels a disturbing trend, experts say

Taylor Swift secretly secretly surveilling her fans using facial recognition technology might sound like science fiction - but Rolling Stone reported on Thursday that the pop star has been doing exactly that in an effort to root out stalkers.

Swift has stayed silent on the report, declining to comment to the Guardian and other news organizations. But the episode has raised ethical questions for civil rights groups concerned about privacy.

What would a city that is safe for women look like?

Thu, 13 Dec 2018 11:00:12 GMT

Most cities have not been designed with women?€?s safety in mind but, from Egypt to Rwanda, new technology, design and education are reducing the threat of violence on the street

Sexual violence has rarely been so high on the news agenda. Since allegations against the movie producer Harvey Weinstein started to emerge in October last year, the global problem has finally become a mainstream issue. The United Nations has estimated that one in three women have experienced physical or sexual violence, with 120 million girls around the world having been forced into sex acts.

The repercussions go beyond the physical and psychological toll on individuals who have been attacked. Harassment and fear of violence can impede free movement of girls and women and stop them reaching their full potential, both socially and economically. ?€?If women feel afraid,?€? says Laura Somoggi, who manages the annual Womanity award for the prevention of violence against women, ?€?it could undermine their ability to work or go to school or university which affects their empowerment, their rights.?€? Fear of attack is a bar to women escaping poverty.

Shenzhen's silent revolution: world's first fully electric bus fleet quietens Chinese megacity

Wed, 12 Dec 2018 11:00:19 GMT

All 16,000 buses in the fast-growing Chinese megacity are now electric, and soon all 22,000 taxis will be too

You have to keep your eyes peeled for the bus at the station in Shenzhen?€?s Futian central business district these days. The diesel behemoths that once signalled their arrival with a piercing hiss, a rattle of engine and a plume of fumes are no more, replaced with the world?€?s first and largest 100% electric bus fleet.

Shenzhen now has 16,000 electric buses in total and is noticeably quieter for it. ?€?We find that the buses are so quiet that people might not hear them coming,?€? says Joseph Ma, deputy general manager at Shenzhen Bus Group, the largest of the three main bus companies in the city. ?€?In fact, we?€?ve received requests to add some artificial noise to the buses so that people can hear them. We?€?re considering it.?€?

Cycles for cigarettes: city gives bikes to children if a relative quits

Tue, 11 Dec 2018 11:00:14 GMT

The bicycles are given to children in the Turkish border city of Kilis if they also maintain strong grades and promise to ride for an hour a day

Standing on the street in the centre of Kilis, a small Turkish city on the border with Syria, a constant stream of noisy motorcycles, scooters and cars zoom past. It?€?s certainly not the most bicycle-friendly city, but local leaders are determined to change that with a new network of cycle lanes, and by giving away thousands of bikes to local children.

Since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war seven years ago, millions of Syrians have sought shelter in Turkey. While there are refugee camps lining the border, most refugees opt to live in cities such as Kilis.

‘I felt like an impostor’: a mixed-race American in Africa

Fri, 14 Dec 2018 06:00:37 GMT

?€?Passing for white?€? was a complicated feeling at home in Ohio. In Chad, it was a whole different experience again. By Alexander Hurst

Every time I crossed the courtyard, walked past the well in the corner and slipped out of the baby blue gate nestled into the high brick wall that surrounded my Chadian host family?€?s house, I instantly became nasara. It?€?s a Ngambay word that means both ?€?foreigner?€? and ?€?white person?€? at the same time. A little pack of children would follow me down the red-dirt street, chanting ?€?nah-sa-rah, nah-sa-rah?€? and laughing.

During my first weeks in Moundou I had protested once - in jest - to Sem, a balding evangelical pastor with a belly and a deep laugh, who was my NGO?€?s main contact in the town. ?€?You know my mom is black, right??€? I said to him, from the passenger seat of his SUV.

Country diary: cattle take shelter in the PoW camp's muddied rooms

Fri, 14 Dec 2018 08:50:59 GMT

Featherstone, Northumberland: We pass a plaque commemorating ?€?Captain Herbert Sulzbach OBE who dedicated himself to making this camp a seed bed of British-German reconciliation?€?

We haven?€?t been here since December 2015 when the floods of Storm Desmond ripped through the parkland of Featherstone Castle. The South Tyne is broad at this point, wooded on one side, grazed by cattle beneath specimen trees on the other. The waters charge down from Alston during prolonged rain. We?€?re shocked at how radically the course has altered. Even the repairs, as recent as this April, stepped tiers of massive stone blocks, were damaged three weeks ago in a new spate. Whole trees litter a long mound of shingle. A huge crescent has been sculpted out of the bank, eating half into the tarmac road that once led to the prisoner of war camp.

Between 1945 and 1948, thousands of German officers were held here in a series of huts, compounds and sports field. Outlines of the layout are visible under the turf. Some scattered brick buildings still exist where cattle now take shelter in muddied rooms. It was a rehabilitation camp - the men could work on local farms during the day. It had a newspaper, three orchestras and a puppet theatre. We pass a memorial plaque fixed to a gate column that now has no fence or gate; it commemorates ?€?Captain Herbert Sulzbach OBE who dedicated himself to making this camp a seed bed of British-German reconciliation?€?.

Fri, 14 Dec 2018 02:25:30 GMT

Artist known for images of Tom Brady and Harvey Weinstein portrays moment of former Trump fixer?€?s downfall

Michael Cohen did not have a good day yesterday. But no headline captured the discontent of Trump?€?s former personal lawyer, sentenced to three years in prison for financial crimes and lying to Congress, quite as well as this courtroom sketch.

His despairing eyes and deep frown lines caught the attention of Stephen Colbert, who called it the ?€?saddest?€? of all the images we?€?ve seen of Cohen?€?s ?€?slow descent into finding out what the law is?€?.

Rightwing Venezuelan exiles hope Brazil’s Bolsonaro will help US invade

Fri, 14 Dec 2018 07:30:36 GMT

Some believe the rise of Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil?€?s next president, makes a US-led military intervention in Venezuela more likely

Venezuelan dissident Roderick Navarro remembers shedding tears of joy when the far-right firebrand Jair Bolsonaro was confirmed as Brazil?€?s next president.

?€?It was the first time in so long that I felt the real possibility of going back to my home,?€? says the rightwing activist exiled to Brazil since fleeing his country last year.

Spending on health will double by 2025, with India intent on improving its record on mortality of mothers and infants

India has pledged to spend $100bn (£79bn) more on healthcare over the next seven years in a move partly aimed at reducing maternal mortality rates.

The country will more than double its health spending from just over the current 1% of GDP to 2.5% by 2025, prime minister Narendra Modi announced.

Will Africa’s first high-speed train be a £1.5bn magic bullet for Morocco? | Will Doig

Thu, 13 Dec 2018 13:05:37 GMT

TGV trains will halve journey times from Casablanca to Tangier, but critics say flashy projects are no substitute for real reform

?€?Many well-known guests have stayed here,?€? says Jimmy, the proprietor of the gift shop in the Hotel Continental, a stately pre-colonial landmark overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar. He runs down the list: Edgar Degas, Winston Churchill, Paul Bowles. But that was a long time ago.

Today, once-glitzy Tangier isn?€?t the destination it was half a century ago, when renowned artists and foreign spies haunted its bars and hotels. But the city?€?s fortunes may soon shift. A new high-speed railway, the first in Africa, was inaugurated last month, linking the cities along Morocco?€?s western edge. ?€?In two hours, it will take you from Casablanca to here,?€? says Jimmy - more than twice as fast as the current trains.

The untold story of how India's sex workers prevented an Aids epidemic

Thu, 13 Dec 2018 05:00:03 GMT

Beating Aids is India?€?s greatest public health achievement. A new book says it wouldn?€?t have happened without women

In 2002, a major report predicted an Aids catastrophe in India. The country would have 20-25m Aids cases by 2010. People were being infected at the rate of about 1,000 a day. Aids orphans numbered 2 million. This scourge would ravage families, society, and the economy. India was going to be the Aids capital of the world.

But 2010 came and went. India averted an Aids epidemic. That victory - India?€?s biggest public health achievement - has remained uncelebrated. But a new book by one of the major HIV campaigners of that time finally honours the people he says were crucial in guiding India away from its seemingly inescapable destiny: the country?€?s sex workers.

Imagine if a media company told you the name of the man accused of killing Grace Millane. Imagine if, in defiance of a very clear court ruling of interim name suppression, that company told you his name in an email - spelling it out, even, in the subject header.

Courts likely to strike down Republican lame-duck power grabs, experts say

Tue, 11 Dec 2018 11:00:13 GMT

After Democrats won governor?€?s races in Wisconsin and Michigan, GOP-controlled legislatures have tried to limit executive power

Republicans in Wisconsin, Michigan and North Carolina suffered stinging losses in November, but the parties aren?€?t transferring power quietly, or at all in some cases. On the way out the door, ?€?lame-duck?€? state legislatures are bringing in last-minute laws that will strip power from incoming Democrats, gut voter-approved ballot initiatives, or otherwise undermine the election results.

How Republicans are turning US states into labs of anti-democracy

Tue, 11 Dec 2018 11:00:11 GMT

The party?€?s brazen efforts to rewire state legislature poses a greater threat than Trump - and will be all the harder to tackle

America?€?s federal system of government is, in theory, key to the strength of its democracy. As opposed to citizens in the more centralized states of Europe, Americans get to vote for a huge array of local offices, policies and ballot initiatives that can influence their lives for the better. Innovation in the states can be healthy for the whole country, such as when healthcare reform in Massachusetts provided inspiration for the Affordable Care Act. The supreme court justice Louis Brandeis famously praised US states as laboratories which could ?€?try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country?€?.

Large number of US citizens demonstrated against the war in Iraq (and the possible war in Iran) during this October weekend. Massive turnout in Boston and San Fransisco, and also in Chicago, LA and DC people took to the streets.
