We are all experiencing how terrible the situation is. This suffering cannot go on for another day. This has once again prompted the international court of justice to make urgent decisions, to initiate provisional measures to achieve a humanitarian ceasefire. For this humanitarian ceasefire is what we as Europeans, the German federal government [are calling for].

We will do everything we can to achieve this, however difficult the situation is at the moment. That also means thinking again about how humanitarian aid and the worsening situation in Gaza can come in. We now have the situation where Rafah is closed again.

The Big Idea: why you shouldnat be afraid of being a mess

From https:

We fear othersa judgment, but the evidence tells us that the things which cause us shame can make us more likable

We all carry some secrets thatwe would rather not share with the people around us. In much the same way that we mayonly invite visitors into the agood roomsa of our house whilethe rest is an absolute tip, we often hide the chaosof our personal lives behind a polished facade. This may be a serious mistake, since itas precisely thosevulnerabilities that can offer rich opportunities to bond with the people around us.

This is sometimes known as the abeautiful mess effecta, and one striking example of it playing out in the public sphere is in the life of Diana, Princess of Wales. At the time, even her harshest critics would have admitted that she had an incredible capacity to connect with people. And the widespread admiration for her seems to have arisen because of her vulnerabilities, rather than in spite of them. In her controversial BBC Panorama interview in 1995, for example, she discussed her husbandas infidelities, but also her struggles with mental health and her love affairs. Many of Dianaas detractors believed that she had provided the material for her own character assassination, but Dianaas popularity soared in the days after the interview, with the Daily Mirror reporting that an astonishing 92% of the public supported her appearance on the programme.

Orange wine: why sales of the seductive new taste of summer are soaring

From https:

Sales in the UK are up 99% annually on Ocado, while there has been a 437% month-on-month rise in London. No wonder Aldi, Majestic and M&S are stocking up

On an early summeras evening, customers flock to a bar called Oranj for glasses of wine that range in colour from subtle gold to deep amber. A catarratto from Sicily maybe, with notes of ripe yellow fruit and a savoury, saline edge, or a juicy, glowing pinot gris from Slovakia, or perhaps an intensely mineral blend of indigenous grapes from Italyas Lazio region a all sell like the proverbial hot cakes.

Oranj, which does not only sell orange wines, started out as a natural wine e-commerce site during the pandemic, and later evolved into this wine bar in Shoreditch, London, in what was its logistical warehouse. It serves aexciting, unusual and unorthodoxa wines, 25% of which are orange, says the founder, Jasper Delamothe.

Alien? Mission: Impossible? Toy Story? What is the greatest movie franchise ever?
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:00:21 GMT
From https:

With new chapters in the worlds of Mad Max and Planet of the Apes out now, Guardian writers have picked their favourite big screen franchises to date

When a blockbuster franchise is seven movies in (and counting), and the consensus choice for worst entry was directed by John Woo, arguably the most influential action film-maker of his time, youare looking at an uncommonly consistent series. Though the Mission: Impossible movies have cycled through many directors a one apiece for Brian De Palma, Woo, JJ Abrams and Brad Bird, before settling on Christopher McQuarrie a the first film, particularly the astounding Langley break-in sequence, established the franchise as a showcase for impeccable crafted set pieces. The plots may be an enjoyably hokey tangle of global threats and clever unmaskings, but the seriesa determination to keep topping itself, leaning on the physicality of stunt work and practical effects, has provided reliable thrills for approaching three decades. With each film, Tom Cruise continues to outrun his own mortality and another classic sequence or two is added to the inventory, from Cruise dangling from the Burj Khalifa high-rise during a sandstorm in Ghost Protocol to him zipping off a cliff on a motorcycle in Dead Reckoning Part One.

Is Rishi Sunak actively trying to lose the election? Letas consider the mounting evidence | Zoe Williams

From https:

All the mishaps, unforced errors, pratfalls a they only make sense if we assume the prime minister has a secret and unspoken plan up his sleeve

For a man who wants to win an election, Rishi Sunakas first week of campaigning has been bizarre, a little bit frightening, like getting trapped in someone elseas anxiety dream. He went to the king for signoff before he told the cabinet, and presented 4 July to them as a fait accompli.

The pensionersa party plays its last moth-eaten card: national service for the young | Polly Toynbee

From https:

After 14 years of youth bashing, the Toriesa plan to atoughen upa British teenagers might be just what it takes to bring them all out to vote

When the Tories reach the very bottom of their bad ideas barrel, they come up with a dead rat plan for conscription. The notion is so decrepit that those old Sir Bufton Tuftons who used to rise in the Commons to declare national service had made them the fine men they were today are long retired and mostly dead, six decades after conscription ended in the UK. Itas that never-ending Tory cry of youth hate: cut their hair, square-bash some discipline into them, bring back the lash! aToughen up teenagers,a declared the unlikely defence secretary, Grant Shapps. If Tory campaign managers still need to secure their over-80s core vote, they really are in trouble.

This dying gasp is the exemplar of their 14 years of governing. Everything has been performative a all about announcements, not reality, and moving on before anyone queries outcomes or value for money. National service swept all the Tory front pages: job done. Marching 18-year-olds into a compulsory year of service marks Tory high commandas final abandonment of younger voters. They and their media inhabit the oldie planet of the ancients, every year limping further away from modern life on earth. David Cameronas legacy project, the National Citizen Service, had its funding cut by two-thirds after attracting a fraction of its expected participants despite devouring 95% of all the youth service funding.

Starmeras macho talk on asylum seekers will only lead to more tragedy. Where is his humanity? | Maya Goodfellow

The way to astop the boatsa is to create safe routes of travel. Instead, the Labour leader is obsessed with trying to appear tough

Keir Starmer isnat interested in agimmicksa, atalking tougha or, God forbid, protesting. He wants to roll up his sleeves and get things done a on this much he has been clear. Except, that is, for the times when it suits him to indulge in some agesture politicsa. This is especially true for asylum: Labour is headed into the snap July election promising to be tough on the asmall boats crisisa and, if Starmeras speech in Dover earlier this month is anything to go by, its plans are not good.

Gimmicks a the policies behind which could do untold damage a seem to be all Labour has. Starmer swapped Rishi Sunakas astop the boatsa slogan for aborder securitya. He invoked the widely peddled myth that the UK, which has an incredibly strict asylum system, is a asoft toucha a suggesting deporting people more quickly would serve as a deterrent. And he promised a new border security command, which seems strangely similar to the small boats operational command. Granted, Labour does not look set to be quite as harsh as the Tories in every respect; Starmer committed to scrapping the Rwanda scheme. But that is the very least it could do, given how unpopular the policy is with the broader public. Look beyond the headline announcements and you find more of what weave had for decades a more borders, more brutality, more suffering.

Humanityas survival is still within our grasp a just. But only if we take these radical steps | David King

Reduce emissions, build resilience, repair ecosystems, remove greenhouse gases: these are the four Rs that can save us

  • David King is chair of the global Climate Crisis Advisory Group

In 2008, the late American climate scientist Wally Broecker warned of the global repercussions of polar ice loss. Today, his predictions echo louder than ever as Greenland ice haemorrhages at an alarming rate, threatening rapid sea-level rise. Over the past 15 years, the Arctic Circle region has been heating up at four times the global average; itas now more than 3C above levels in the 1980s. In 2023, we witnessed a staggering loss of Antarctic Sea ice.

Over the past year, land and ocean temperatures have soared, far beyond what was anticipated for an El NiA+-o year. Global average temperatures have breached the 1.5C mark, indicating that climate transition has been unleashed.

The US attempt to ban TikTok is an attack on ideas and hope | Dominic Andre

A TikTok ban threatens to destroy millions of jobs and silence diverse voices. It would change the world for the worse

Iam a TikTok creator. Iave used TikTok to build a multimillion dollar business, focused on sharing interesting things Iave learned in life and throughout my years in college. TikTok allowed me to create a community and help further my goal of educating the public. I always feared that one day, it would be threatened. And now, itas happening.

Why does the US government want to ban TikTok? The reasons given include TikTokas foreign ownership and its aaddictivea nature, but I suspect that part of the reason is that the app primarily appeals to younger generations who often hold political and moral views that differ significantly from those of older generations, including many of todayas politicians.

Teenage boys are becoming high-end fragrance fans. So whatas that ugly smell? | Emma Beddington

From https:

Forget looksmaxxing. Boys are now scentmaxxing. But some of the perfume influencers they follow leave a lot to be desired

You think teenage boys smell of Lynx Africa, musty trainer and gummy bear vape? In 2024, it might be Tom Ford Neroli Portofino or Acqua di Parmaas Sardinian juniper, because, according to the New York Times, they a and younger boys a are becoming high-end fragrance fiends.

This TikTok-fuelled trend is the boy equivalent of 12-year-old girls dropping fortunes on unnecessary retinoids, but apart from the expense (youad need an extra-lucrative paper round to finance this hobby), it feels cheerier than an obsession with nonexistent wrinkles. Lads who just want to smell nice debating aldehydes, vetiver heart notes and the sillage (lingering scent trail) of fragrances created by or bearing the names of extremely successful gay men? That feels like a breath of fresh (OK, heavily scented) air compared with the fetid misogynistic manosphere theyare also exposed to.

The SNPas woes are a boost for Starmer. But heas not promising the change Scotland wants | Dani Garavelli
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:07:58 GMT
From https:

Labour is posing as the great catalyst, but so far there is little evidence it has the bold policies to deliver on this pledge

In May 2015, as part of my newspaperas general election coverage, I went out with Labour campaigners as they canvassed in one of the partyas heartlands: Airdrie and Shotts. The campaigners were in denial, but the signs of collapse were everywhere: in the many saltires, the ared Toriesa graffiti, and the aI didnat leave Labour, Labour left mea line repeated in every vox pop. A few days later, Airdrie and Shotts was taken by the now Scottish secretary for health and social care, Neil Gray (one of 56 seats won by the SNP), and the party that had kept an iron grip on central Scotland was consigned to the political wilderness.

What goes around comes around, they say. Less than a decade on, the SNP are heading for, if not quite the wipeout Scottish Labour experienced, then an electoral humiliation on a scale that would have been unthinkable 18 months ago. More humiliating still is that the decline comes against a backdrop of sustained support for independence. Not only do polls suggest the party will lose 27 seats (with Labour gaining 28), they suggest two-fifths of 2019 SNP voters will back Labour, despite its continued stance on the union.

The Guardian view on Starmeras offer: the gap between Labour and the Tories should widen | Editorial

From https:

Small campaign pledges risk inhibiting Labouras ability, if elected, to improve peopleas lives

Sir Keir Starmer was asked on BBC Radio 4as Today programme last Friday whether, if he achieved his goal for the UK to attain the highest sustained growth in the G7, he would readopt plans to scrap university tuition fees. He had committed to their abolition when running to be Labour leader in 2020, but dropped the policy last yearbecause he said money was tight. Mishal Husainas question exposed a contradiction in SirKeiras plans: the argument that he ditched his tuition-fee pledge to prioritise the NHS melted away if higher public spending could be financed by faster economic growth. Sir Keir parried, leaving the issue unresolved.

On Monday, Labouras leader sought to further deflect from his rowback by leaving the door open to raising fees. Polling suggests that would be unpopular. Many voters might not want English university education to be free, but most want to see the cost reduced. Last year, Public First suggested that cutting fees to between APS6,000 and APS7,500 was the most popular option. Sir Keir was first elected to the Commons in 2015 on a Labour manifesto pledge to trim fees to such levels, with universitiesa income made up through increased state support. But it would not be lost on him that eventhough his party had won the argument, Labourlost that election.

The Guardian view on private equity and public services: this trend needs reversing | Editorial
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 17:39:45 GMT
From https:

From railways to nurseries and childrenas homes, investors are taking advantage of chances to siphon taxpayer funds offshore

Sector by sector, private equity is making deep inroads into UK public services. More than a decade ago, the collapse of Southern Cross, the private-equity-owned care home operator, revealed the havoc that can be wreaked when essential public services are run by heavily indebted businesses with complex financial structures. Typically, such owners maximise profits by using low-tax jurisdictions, loans, and sale-and-leaseback arrangements that split holding companies from property assets.

Present trends show that this cautionary tale is being ignored. A forthcoming report from the Common Wealth thinktank uses the example of the companies that lease trains to railway operators, to demonstrate that private equity companies are pressing their advantage from financial engineering. Britainas transport network has joined health and social care, childrenas homes and some areas of education in offering rich pickings to private-equity investors.

Your editorial about mobile phones in concert halls reminded me of the very strong stance taken by Keith Jarrett, the American jazz and classical pianist, who insisted that no photography was allowed during any of his performances (The Guardian view on phones in concert halls: what engages some enrages others, 19 May). Thiswas expressed before the concert by the promoters and by Jarrettasmanager.

Andrei Belousov, the technocrat economist appointed to replace Shoigu, has a mandate to reduce corruption in the defence ministry and streamline military production for a long war against Ukraine that could largely be decided by industrial output.

The life sabbatical: is doing absolutely nothing the secret of happiness?

From https:

Few of us have the money to take a long pause from work or caring responsibilities. But, as I found, even a day can make a difference

You might imagine that escaping from your everyday life would involve relocating to a Hebridean croft or attending a series of rejuvenating retreats. But, according to Emma Gannonas new book project, A Year of Nothing, it could be as simple as staying at home. aI did nothing,a writes Gannon. aI stopped replying to emails. I used my savings. I slept. I borrowed a friendas dog. I ate bananas in bed. I bought miniature plants. I read magazines. I lay down. I did nothing. It felt totally alien to me.a

For Gannon, the sabbatical was enforced after she experienced burnout, caused by chronic exhaustion from occupational stress. aAll the while, I was keeping diaries,a she says. aWriting down the anothingnessa of my days. I journalled all the things I noticed, the stuff I usually ignored, the people I met, the kindness of strangers, the magical coincidences a the smallest, tiniest uplifting glimmers.a

The Big Idea: why you shouldnat be afraid of being a mess
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:30:21 GMT
From https:

We fear othersa judgment, but the evidence tells us that the things which cause us shame can make us more likable

We all carry some secrets thatwe would rather not share with the people around us. In much the same way that we mayonly invite visitors into the agood roomsa of our house whilethe rest is an absolute tip, we often hide the chaosof our personal lives behind a polished facade. This may be a serious mistake, since itas precisely thosevulnerabilities that can offer rich opportunities to bond with the people around us.

This is sometimes known as the abeautiful mess effecta, and one striking example of it playing out in the public sphere is in the life of Diana, Princess of Wales. At the time, even her harshest critics would have admitted that she had an incredible capacity to connect with people. And the widespread admiration for her seems to have arisen because of her vulnerabilities, rather than in spite of them. In her controversial BBC Panorama interview in 1995, for example, she discussed her husbandas infidelities, but also her struggles with mental health and her love affairs. Many of Dianaas detractors believed that she had provided the material for her own character assassination, but Dianaas popularity soared in the days after the interview, with the Daily Mirror reporting that an astonishing 92% of the public supported her appearance on the programme.

Humanityas survival is still within our grasp a just. But only if we take these radical steps | David King

Reduce emissions, build resilience, repair ecosystems, remove greenhouse gases: these are the four Rs that can save us

  • David King is chair of the global Climate Crisis Advisory Group

In 2008, the late American climate scientist Wally Broecker warned of the global repercussions of polar ice loss. Today, his predictions echo louder than ever as Greenland ice haemorrhages at an alarming rate, threatening rapid sea-level rise. Over the past 15 years, the Arctic Circle region has been heating up at four times the global average; itas now more than 3C above levels in the 1980s. In 2023, we witnessed a staggering loss of Antarctic Sea ice.

Over the past year, land and ocean temperatures have soared, far beyond what was anticipated for an El NiA+-o year. Global average temperatures have breached the 1.5C mark, indicating that climate transition has been unleashed. From record-breaking wildfires across continents to catastrophic floods threatening to submerge major cities, extreme climate events have become the new norm, causing massive loss of life and economic damage worldwide.

In dismissing calls for Netanyahuas arrest, the west is undermining its own world order | Nesrine Malik
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 05:00:15 GMT
From https:

Holding actors like Putin to account relies on international law. If Israelas allies flout it, how can they convince others to respect their rules?

Since its inception, the international criminal court (ICC) has charged 50 people, 47 of whom were African. Its investigations have also been overwhelmingly focused on war crimes and crimes against humanity in African nations. What has long been understood but never stated is that the court and its processes, to put it bluntly, target a certain type of political leadership that is easier to go after. aThe court is built for Africans and thugs like Putin,a is what one appalled elected senior leader reportedly told the ICC prosecutor, Karim Khan, when his team made a recent application for arrest warrants for Israelas prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, its defence minister, Yoav Gallant, and three Hamas leaders.

Again, blunt, but not revelatory. At least not to the parts of the world that are more familiar with the court and its investigations. The lineup of suspects and defendants has long solidified the impression below the equator that the ICC is a court for Africans, and lately maybe Russians. How can that not be the takeaway when, in the years since the court was founded, the US a often with British support a has calamitously invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, established an extrajudicial prison for terror suspects, and created a CIA torture and detention network? African conflicts are seen as intimate, tribal and intentional in a way that those in other places are not. The underlying suggestion is that civilians in western wars are killed and illegally detained by accident, while other countries do this on purpose.

The brutal repression of student protests from Amsterdam to Los Angeles is exposing failings at the heart of our universities

Across the world, university students have set up encampments to protest against the humanitarian disaster unfolding in Gaza and put pressure on academic institutions and governments. Whatever one thinks of their message and of their requests, their moral indignation in the face of avoidable human suffering is one we should all be able to share.

I find it inspiring that this student movement has been spearheaded by a generation that was too quickly labelled apolitical and self-absorbed. Think about it: these students grew up in the bleak post-9/11 world, with a future foreclosed by the 2008 financial crisis and the climate meltdown. They are still reeling from two years of pandemic that have taken a heavy educational and emotional toll. Still, this generation has succeeded in organising a global movement that is coordinated, smart and humane. It deserves much better than condescension.

After a lifetime of discomfort, I stopped wearing a bra a and Iall never wear one again | Becki Jacobson

From https:

It wasnat even my decision. But being forced to ditch them after surgery was a revelation. Who cares what people think?

Society has unwritten rules that weare all expected to follow and that can dictate some of the most intimate choices in our lives a from family structure and career and lifestyle decisions to the underwear we wear. That last one may seem out of left field, but itas true that society tells girls of all ages that as soon as their breasts start forming wearing a bra is the appropriate and decent thing to do.

When I was a little girl, I could hardly wait to start wearing a bra. To me, it was a symbol of growing up, becoming a woman, and I began wearing one long before it was anecessarya. As a teenager, I found it fun to buy every different colour and style available until I had dozens to choose from. Back then, I accepted the discomfort of strapping down my breasts as one of the many unfair consequences of being female. I thought there was no other choice.

A TikTok ban threatens to destroy millions of jobs and silence diverse voices. It would change the world for the worse

Iam a TikTok creator. Iave used TikTok to build a multimillion dollar business, focused on sharing interesting things Iave learned in life and throughout my years in college. TikTok allowed me to create a community and help further my goal of educating the public. I always feared that one day, it would be threatened. And now, itas happening.

Why does the US government want to ban TikTok? The reasons given include TikTokas foreign ownership and its aaddictivea nature, but I suspect that part of the reason is that the app primarily appeals to younger generations who often hold political and moral views that differ significantly from those of older generations, including many of todayas politicians.

Lads who just want to smell nice debating aldehydes, vetiver heart notes and the sillage (lingering scent trail) of fragrances created by or bearing the names of extremely successful gay men? That feels like a breath of fresh (OK, heavily scented) air compared with the fetid misogynistic manosphere theyare also exposed to.

Manchester Unitedas win made the FA Cup final seem like it matters again

From https:

A derby victory over Manchester City at Wembley helped Erik ten Hagas team gain some self-respect after recent domination by their closest rivals

Some days, you wonder just why the FA Cup seems so embattled. Saturdayas final felt like a throwback: a sunny spring day, a sense of subplots coming together in an occasion that genuinely mattered, drama on the pitch and ultimately a shock. Perhaps it wasnat quite Sunderland beating Leeds in 1973 or Southampton beating Manchester United in 1976 (or even Wigan beating Manchester City in 2013). But United finished lower in the league this season (eighth) than Wimbledon (seventh) did when they beat champions Liverpool in 1988. The status and histories of the clubs shouldnat disguise what a shock Unitedas victory over City was.

For United, it was a great occasion. For them a first FA Cup in eight years and just their second trophy in seven, a step-up on the League Cup they won under Erik ten Hag last season. But more than that, they stopped City becoming the first club to win the Double in successive seasons. Itas not just about succeeding; itas about the failure of others, especially your closest rivals.

Why the National Spelling Bee is more vital than ever in the age of AI

From https:

The 96th Scripps National Spelling Bee, which begins Tuesday, is a celebration of discipline and focus in a world where those things appear to be in vanishing supply

A question that I perennially encounter when I tell people that I am a professional spelling bee tutor is: aWhy bother with spelling bees when we have spell check?a Itas an eminently understandable response, especially when it comes from people who have never watched a bee. Cell phones and computers have no problem storing the entire corpus of the English dictionary and consulting it at a momentas notice. Like all games and sports, spelling bees arenat strictly speaking necessary or useful a at least not in an immediately practical way. Yet questions about spelling beesa utility (or lack thereof) miss what makes them so beloved a why it broke spellersa and logophilesa hearts when the Scripps National Spelling Bee was cancelled in 2020 amid the pandemic; why the Bee was quickly revived in 2021 and 2022, with altered rules and a partially virtual format; and why the Bee continues to captivate people internationally, motivating countries like Jamaica, China, and Ghana to send teams to Washington DC to compete.

The rise of artificial intelligence is provoking a great deal of anxiety these days. The development of machine-learning technologies which vastly outstrip human abilities forces us to meditate upon what, in the final analysis, differentiates us from AIs. It also compels us to consider which spheres of human life we think ought to be automated, and which activities we feel should be defended against AI incursions.

While plugged in, the player is unable to take stock of the areala world outside. aYou wonat be able to stop yourself, so you might as well enjoy it,a says the gameas creator, a line that feels spookily resonant today.

I am certainly not the first person to notice that 1999 was a great year for film. At the time, Entertainment Weekly ran a piece with the headline: 1999: The Year That Changed Movies, declaring it the year aall the old, boring rules about cinema started to crumblea. Itas not that films such as The Virgin Suicides, The Sixth Sense and Fight Club are better than everything else that came before or after, but that 1999as harvest was a bumper crop. That yearas freakish climate saw cross-pollination between Hollywood studios with money and independent-minded film-makers with vision. It was a period that saw cinema creating the culture instead of second-guessing it.

Alien? Mission: Impossible? Toy Story? What is the greatest movie franchise ever?
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:00:21 GMT
From https:

With new chapters in the worlds of Mad Max and Planet of the Apes out now, Guardian writers have picked their favourite big screen franchises to date

When a blockbuster franchise is seven movies in (and counting), and the consensus choice for worst entry was directed by John Woo, arguably the most influential action film-maker of his time, youare looking at an uncommonly consistent series. Though the Mission: Impossible movies have cycled through many directors a one apiece for Brian De Palma, Woo, JJ Abrams and Brad Bird, before settling on Christopher McQuarrie a the first film, particularly the astounding Langley break-in sequence, established the franchise as a showcase for impeccable crafted set pieces. The plots may be an enjoyably hokey tangle of global threats and clever unmaskings, but the seriesa determination to keep topping itself, leaning on the physicality of stunt work and practical effects, has provided reliable thrills for approaching three decades. With each film, Tom Cruise continues to outrun his own mortality and another classic sequence or two is added to the inventory, from Cruise dangling from the Burj Khalifa high-rise during a sandstorm in Ghost Protocol to him zipping off a cliff on a motorcycle in Dead Reckoning Part One. Itas a high-wire act that has yet to tumble off the line. Scott Tobias

Four centuries after it was painted, three and a half centuries after it arrived in Spain and three years after it came perilously close to going under the hammer for just a!1,500, a lost, luminous and lovingly restored Caravaggio has gone on display at the Prado in Madrid.

The Ecce Homo, painted in the Italian masteras dark and desperate last years, made headlines around the world after experts at the museum spotted it in an auction catalogue and rang Spainas culture ministry to share their suspicions that the painting had been misattributed.

Moosa Lane review a loving cinematic bridge between two countries and cultures
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 12:00:22 GMT
From https:

Shot over 15 years between Denmark and Pakistan, the film-maker captures day-to-day life in Karachi, and explores how freedom and human rights are not doled out equally

Shot over the course of 15 years, Anita Mathal Hoplandas documentary provides a cinematic bridge between two countries. Born in Denmark to a Norwegian mother and a Pakistani father, the director lived in Copenhagen yet found herself unmoored between cultures. Camera in hand, Hopland makes several trips to Moosa Lane, the street in Karachi, Pakistanas largest city, where 25 members of her fatheras family share a single dwelling. Through her lens, she lovingly documents the colourful day-to-day lives of her relatives. In the face of diasporic longing, the act of filming embodies a desire to connect and set roots in a world divided by borders.

Focusing on three of her family members, Hoplandas film also observes changing cultural attitudes among Pakistani youths. Readying herself for an arranged marriage, Hoplandas niece Saima is content to follow tradition. Meanwhile, Alishba, who was only two years old when shooting started, has grown into a spirited teen who dreams of pursuing financial and professional independence. A ball of energy, Alishba approaches the dangerous streets and the beautiful open beaches with the same zest for adventure. As Hoplandas camera zigzags between Karachi and Denmark, the montage articulates how the idea of free movement is reserved only for the privileged. Her journeys to Pakistan had always been one-sided, as it was nearly impossible for her relatives to travel to Europe, for economic and visa reasons.

A new start after 60: I always battled with my body image a until I became a bodybuilder at 64
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 06:00:15 GMT
From https:

After two divorces and an eating disorder, Marlene Flowers knew a change was needed. Her son suggested she start building her strength and she soon found her self-confidence growing ...

In 2021, at 64 years old, Marlene Flowers entered her first bodybuilding competition. Oiled, tanned and wearing a bikini, the auto repair shop owner from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, found herself under bright lights on stage, twisting and contorting to show off her taut muscles alongside people half her age. Once the flexing was over, she then performed a one-minute posing routine to the theme song from Flashdance, one of her favourite films. aI was terrified to get out there but as soon as I did, I realised everyone was so encouraging and supportive,a she says. aWe all wanted each other to succeed and I walked away with a trophy.a

If you had told Flowers when she was in her 50s that she would be inviting people to judge her figure, she would have laughed in your face. She had a natural aptitude for freestyle swimming as a child, but struggled with her body image. Self-conscious and often shy, Flowers went on to marry and divorce twice. aIt all affected my self-esteem and I ended up with an eating disorder for many years,a she says. aIt was getting worse and worse until I was hospitalised for issues relating to my weight loss at 58. That was my wake-up call.a

We are all experiencing how terrible the situation is. This suffering cannot go on for another day. This has once again prompted the international court of justice to make urgent decisions, to initiate provisional measures to achieve a humanitarian ceasefire. For this humanitarian ceasefire is what we as Europeans, the German federal government [are calling for].

We will do everything we can to achieve this, however difficult the situation is at the moment. That also means thinking again about how humanitarian aid and the worsening situation in Gaza can come in. We now have the situation where Rafah is closed again.

The Big Idea: why you shouldnat be afraid of being a mess
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:30:21 GMT
From https:

We fear othersa judgment, but the evidence tells us that the things which cause us shame can make us more likable

We all carry some secrets thatwe would rather not share with the people around us. In much the same way that we mayonly invite visitors into the agood roomsa of our house whilethe rest is an absolute tip, we often hide the chaosof our personal lives behind a polished facade. This may be a serious mistake, since itas precisely thosevulnerabilities that can offer rich opportunities to bond with the people around us.

This is sometimes known as the abeautiful mess effecta, and one striking example of it playing out in the public sphere is in the life of Diana, Princess of Wales. At the time, even her harshest critics would have admitted that she had an incredible capacity to connect with people. And the widespread admiration for her seems to have arisen because of her vulnerabilities, rather than in spite of them. In her controversial BBC Panorama interview in 1995, for example, she discussed her husbandas infidelities, but also her struggles with mental health and her love affairs. Many of Dianaas detractors believed that she had provided the material for her own character assassination, but Dianaas popularity soared in the days after the interview, with the Daily Mirror reporting that an astonishing 92% of the public supported her appearance on the programme.

Orange wine: why sales of the seductive new taste of summer are soaring
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 14:13:28 GMT
From https:

Sales in the UK are up 99% annually on Ocado, while there has been a 437% month-on-month rise in London. No wonder Aldi, Majestic and M&S are stocking up

On an early summeras evening, customers flock to a bar called Oranj for glasses of wine that range in colour from subtle gold to deep amber. A catarratto from Sicily maybe, with notes of ripe yellow fruit and a savoury, saline edge, or a juicy, glowing pinot gris from Slovakia, or perhaps an intensely mineral blend of indigenous grapes from Italyas Lazio region a all sell like the proverbial hot cakes.

Oranj, which does not only sell orange wines, started out as a natural wine e-commerce site during the pandemic, and later evolved into this wine bar in Shoreditch, London, in what was its logistical warehouse. It serves aexciting, unusual and unorthodoxa wines, 25% of which are orange, says the founder, Jasper Delamothe. This is quite a proportion, given the niche status of orange wine just a few years ago.

Alien? Mission: Impossible? Toy Story? What is the greatest movie franchise ever?
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:00:21 GMT
From https:

With new chapters in the worlds of Mad Max and Planet of the Apes out now, Guardian writers have picked their favourite big screen franchises to date

When a blockbuster franchise is seven movies in (and counting), and the consensus choice for worst entry was directed by John Woo, arguably the most influential action film-maker of his time, youare looking at an uncommonly consistent series. Though the Mission: Impossible movies have cycled through many directors a one apiece for Brian De Palma, Woo, JJ Abrams and Brad Bird, before settling on Christopher McQuarrie a the first film, particularly the astounding Langley break-in sequence, established the franchise as a showcase for impeccable crafted set pieces. The plots may be an enjoyably hokey tangle of global threats and clever unmaskings, but the seriesa determination to keep topping itself, leaning on the physicality of stunt work and practical effects, has provided reliable thrills for approaching three decades. With each film, Tom Cruise continues to outrun his own mortality and another classic sequence or two is added to the inventory, from Cruise dangling from the Burj Khalifa high-rise during a sandstorm in Ghost Protocol to him zipping off a cliff on a motorcycle in Dead Reckoning Part One. Itas a high-wire act that has yet to tumble off the line. Scott Tobias

Is Rishi Sunak actively trying to lose the election? Letas consider the mounting evidence | Zoe Williams
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 16:19:37 GMT
From https:

All the mishaps, unforced errors, pratfalls a they only make sense if we assume the prime minister has a secret and unspoken plan up his sleeve

For a man who wants to win an election, Rishi Sunakas first week of campaigning has been bizarre, a little bit frightening, like getting trapped in someone elseas anxiety dream. He went to the king for signoff before he told the cabinet, and presented 4 July to them as a fait accompli. Even if they had agreed with the decision, they wouldnat have liked that, but they didnat and they hated it. Only Oliver Dowden thought it was a good idea, which is a category of disaster all its own: athings only Oliver Dowden thinks are a good ideaa.

The pensionersa party plays its last moth-eaten card: national service for the young | Polly Toynbee

From https:

After 14 years of youth bashing, the Toriesa plan to atoughen upa British teenagers might be just what it takes to bring them all out to vote

When the Tories reach the very bottom of their bad ideas barrel, they come up with a dead rat plan for conscription. The notion is so decrepit that those old Sir Bufton Tuftons who used to rise in the Commons to declare national service had made them the fine men they were today are long retired and mostly dead, six decades after conscription ended in the UK. Itas that never-ending Tory cry of youth hate: cut their hair, square-bash some discipline into them, bring back the lash! aToughen up teenagers,a declared the unlikely defence secretary, Grant Shapps. If Tory campaign managers still need to secure their over-80s core vote, they really are in trouble.

This dying gasp is the exemplar of their 14 years of governing. Everything has been performative a all about announcements, not reality, and moving on before anyone queries outcomes or value for money. National service swept all the Tory front pages: job done. Marching 18-year-olds into a compulsory year of service marks Tory high commandas final abandonment of younger voters. They and their media inhabit the oldie planet of the ancients, every year limping further away from modern life on earth. David Cameronas legacy project, the National Citizen Service, had its funding cut by two-thirds after attracting a fraction of its expected participants despite devouring 95% of all the youth service funding.

Starmeras macho talk on asylum seekers will only lead to more tragedy. Where is his humanity? | Maya Goodfellow
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 14:00:24 GMT
From https:

The way to astop the boatsa is to create safe routes of travel. Instead, the Labour leader is obsessed with trying to appear tough

Keir Starmer isnat interested in agimmicksa, atalking tougha or, God forbid, protesting. He wants to roll up his sleeves and get things done a on this much he has been clear. Except, that is, for the times when it suits him to indulge in some agesture politicsa. This is especially true for asylum: Labour is headed into the snap July election promising to be tough on the asmall boats crisisa and, if Starmeras speech in Dover earlier this month is anything to go by, its plans are not good.

Gimmicks a the policies behind which could do untold damage a seem to be all Labour has. Starmer swapped Rishi Sunakas astop the boatsa slogan for aborder securitya. He invoked the widely peddled myth that the UK, which has an incredibly strict asylum system, is a asoft toucha a suggesting deporting people more quickly would serve as a deterrent. And he promised a new border security command, which seems strangely similar to the small boats operational command. Granted, Labour does not look set to be quite as harsh as the Tories in every respect; Starmer committed to scrapping the Rwanda scheme. But that is the very least it could do, given how unpopular the policy is with the broader public.

Humanityas survival is still within our grasp a just. But only if we take these radical steps | David King

Reduce emissions, build resilience, repair ecosystems, remove greenhouse gases: these are the four Rs that can save us

  • David King is chair of the global Climate Crisis Advisory Group

In 2008, the late American climate scientist Wally Broecker warned of the global repercussions of polar ice loss. Today, his predictions echo louder than ever as Greenland ice haemorrhages at an alarming rate, threatening rapid sea-level rise. Over the past 15 years, the Arctic Circle region has been heating up at four times the global average; itas now more than 3C above levels in the 1980s. In 2023, we witnessed a staggering loss of Antarctic Sea ice.

Over the past year, land and ocean temperatures have soared, far beyond what was anticipated for an El NiA+-o year. Global average temperatures have breached the 1.5C mark, indicating that climate transition has been unleashed. From record-breaking wildfires across continents to catastrophic floods threatening to submerge major cities, extreme climate events have become the new norm, causing massive loss of life and economic damage worldwide.

The US attempt to ban TikTok is an attack on ideas and hope | Dominic Andre

A TikTok ban threatens to destroy millions of jobs and silence diverse voices. It would change the world for the worse

Iam a TikTok creator. Iave used TikTok to build a multimillion dollar business, focused on sharing interesting things Iave learned in life and throughout my years in college. TikTok allowed me to create a community and help further my goal of educating the public. I always feared that one day, it would be threatened. And now, itas happening.

Why does the US government want to ban TikTok? The reasons given include TikTokas foreign ownership and its aaddictivea nature, but I suspect that part of the reason is that the app primarily appeals to younger generations who often hold political and moral views that differ significantly from those of older generations, including many of todayas politicians.

Teenage boys are becoming high-end fragrance fans. So whatas that ugly smell? | Emma Beddington

Forget looksmaxxing. Boys are now scentmaxxing. But some of the perfume influencers they follow leave a lot to be desired

You think teenage boys smell of Lynx Africa, musty trainer and gummy bear vape? In 2024, it might be Tom Ford Neroli Portofino or Acqua di Parmaas Sardinian juniper, because, according to the New York Times, they a and younger boys a are becoming high-end fragrance fiends.

This TikTok-fuelled trend is the boy equivalent of 12-year-old girls dropping fortunes on unnecessary retinoids, but apart from the expense (youad need an extra-lucrative paper round to finance this hobby), it feels cheerier than an obsession with nonexistent wrinkles. Lads who just want to smell nice debating aldehydes, vetiver heart notes and the sillage (lingering scent trail) of fragrances created by or bearing the names of extremely successful gay men? That feels like a breath of fresh (OK, heavily scented) air compared with the fetid misogynistic manosphere theyare also exposed to.

The SNPas woes are a boost for Starmer. But heas not promising the change Scotland wants | Dani Garavelli
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:07:58 GMT
From https:

Labour is posing as the great catalyst, but so far there is little evidence it has the bold policies to deliver on this pledge

In May 2015, as part of my newspaperas general election coverage, I went out with Labour campaigners as they canvassed in one of the partyas heartlands: Airdrie and Shotts. The campaigners were in denial, but the signs of collapse were everywhere: in the many saltires, the ared Toriesa graffiti, and the aI didnat leave Labour, Labour left mea line repeated in every vox pop. A few days later, Airdrie and Shotts was taken by the now Scottish secretary for health and social care, Neil Gray (one of 56 seats won by the SNP), and the party that had kept an iron grip on central Scotland was consigned to the political wilderness.

What goes around comes around, they say. Less than a decade on, the SNP are heading for, if not quite the wipeout Scottish Labour experienced, then an electoral humiliation on a scale that would have been unthinkable 18 months ago. More humiliating still is that the decline comes against a backdrop of sustained support for independence. Not only do polls suggest the party will lose 27 seats (with Labour gaining 28), they suggest two-fifths of 2019 SNP voters will back Labour, despite its continued stance on the union.

The Guardian view on Starmeras offer: the gap between Labour and the Tories should widen | Editorial
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 17:39:51 GMT
From https:

Small campaign pledges risk inhibiting Labouras ability, if elected, to improve peopleas lives

Sir Keir Starmer was asked on BBC Radio 4as Today programme last Friday whether, if he achieved his goal for the UK to attain the highest sustained growth in the G7, he would readopt plans to scrap university tuition fees. He had committed to their abolition when running to be Labour leader in 2020, but dropped the policy last yearbecause he said money was tight. Mishal Husainas question exposed a contradiction in SirKeiras plans: the argument that he ditched his tuition-fee pledge to prioritise the NHS melted away if higher public spending could be financed by faster economic growth. Sir Keir parried, leaving the issue unresolved.

On Monday, Labouras leader sought to further deflect from his rowback by leaving the door open to raising fees. Polling suggests that would be unpopular. Many voters might not want English university education to be free, but most want to see the cost reduced. Last year, Public First suggested that cutting fees to between APS6,000 and APS7,500 was the most popular option. Sir Keir was first elected to the Commons in 2015 on a Labour manifesto pledge to trim fees to such levels, with universitiesa income made up through increased state support. But it would not be lost on him that eventhough his party had won the argument, Labourlost that election.

The Guardian view on private equity and public services: this trend needs reversing | Editorial
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 17:39:45 GMT
From https:

From railways to nurseries and childrenas homes, investors are taking advantage of chances to siphon taxpayer funds offshore

Sector by sector, private equity is making deep inroads into UK public services. More than a decade ago, the collapse of Southern Cross, the private-equity-owned care home operator, revealed the havoc that can be wreaked when essential public services are run by heavily indebted businesses with complex financial structures. Typically, such owners maximise profits by using low-tax jurisdictions, loans, and sale-and-leaseback arrangements that split holding companies from property assets.

Present trends show that this cautionary tale is being ignored. A forthcoming report from the Common Wealth thinktank uses the example of the companies that lease trains to railway operators, to demonstrate that private equity companies are pressing their advantage from financial engineering. Britainas transport network has joined health and social care, childrenas homes and some areas of education in offering rich pickings to private-equity investors.

Your editorial about mobile phones in concert halls reminded me of the very strong stance taken by Keith Jarrett, the American jazz and classical pianist, who insisted that no photography was allowed during any of his performances (The Guardian view on phones in concert halls: what engages some enrages others, 19 May). Thiswas expressed before the concert by the promoters and by Jarrettasmanager.

Donald Trump has retained much of his political support amid his ongoing hush-money trial in part due to a combination of the courtroomas ban on cameras and conservative media echoing his claims that both the prosecutor and judge are corrupt, media analysts say.

The experts suggest that the former president could retain political support on the right even if the jury determines he is guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records related to his reimbursements to Michael Cohen for a payment to Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign.

In the weeks since Vladimir Putin sacked his longtime defence minister Sergei Shoigu, Russiaas FSB security service has pursued a series of high-level corruption cases against a deputy minister and department heads in what many insiders are now calling a purge in the defence ministry.

Andrei Belousov, the technocrat economist appointed to replace Shoigu, has a mandate to reduce corruption in the defence ministry and streamline military production for a long war against Ukraine that could largely be decided by industrial output.

The life sabbatical: is doing absolutely nothing the secret of happiness?

From https:

Few of us have the money to take a long pause from work or caring responsibilities. But, as I found, even a day can make a difference

You might imagine that escaping from your everyday life would involve relocating to a Hebridean croft or attending a series of rejuvenating retreats. But, according to Emma Gannonas new book project, A Year of Nothing, it could be as simple as staying at home. aI did nothing,a writes Gannon. aI stopped replying to emails. I used my savings. I slept. I borrowed a friendas dog. I ate bananas in bed. I bought miniature plants. I read magazines. I lay down. I did nothing. It felt totally alien to me.a

For Gannon, the sabbatical was enforced after she experienced burnout, caused by chronic exhaustion from occupational stress. aAll the while, I was keeping diaries,a she says. aWriting down the anothingnessa of my days. I journalled all the things I noticed, the stuff I usually ignored, the people I met, the kindness of strangers, the magical coincidences a the smallest, tiniest uplifting glimmers.a

The Big Idea: why you shouldnat be afraid of being a mess
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:30:21 GMT
From https:

We fear othersa judgment, but the evidence tells us that the things which cause us shame can make us more likable

We all carry some secrets thatwe would rather not share with the people around us. In much the same way that we mayonly invite visitors into the agood roomsa of our house whilethe rest is an absolute tip, we often hide the chaosof our personal lives behind a polished facade. This may be a serious mistake, since itas precisely thosevulnerabilities that can offer rich opportunities to bond with the people around us.

This is sometimes known as the abeautiful mess effecta, and one striking example of it playing out in the public sphere is in the life of Diana, Princess of Wales. At the time, even her harshest critics would have admitted that she had an incredible capacity to connect with people. And the widespread admiration for her seems to have arisen because of her vulnerabilities, rather than in spite of them. In her controversial BBC Panorama interview in 1995, for example, she discussed her husbandas infidelities, but also her struggles with mental health and her love affairs. Many of Dianaas detractors believed that she had provided the material for her own character assassination, but Dianaas popularity soared in the days after the interview, with the Daily Mirror reporting that an astonishing 92% of the public supported her appearance on the programme.

Humanityas survival is still within our grasp a just. But only if we take these radical steps | David King

Reduce emissions, build resilience, repair ecosystems, remove greenhouse gases: these are the four Rs that can save us

  • David King is chair of the global Climate Crisis Advisory Group

In 2008, the late American climate scientist Wally Broecker warned of the global repercussions of polar ice loss. Today, his predictions echo louder than ever as Greenland ice haemorrhages at an alarming rate, threatening rapid sea-level rise. Over the past 15 years, the Arctic Circle region has been heating up at four times the global average; itas now more than 3C above levels in the 1980s. In 2023, we witnessed a staggering loss of Antarctic Sea ice.

Over the past year, land and ocean temperatures have soared, far beyond what was anticipated for an El NiA+-o year. Global average temperatures have breached the 1.5C mark, indicating that climate transition has been unleashed. From record-breaking wildfires across continents to catastrophic floods threatening to submerge major cities, extreme climate events have become the new norm, causing massive loss of life and economic damage worldwide.

In dismissing calls for Netanyahuas arrest, the west is undermining its own world order | Nesrine Malik
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 05:00:15 GMT
From https:

Holding actors like Putin to account relies on international law. If Israelas allies flout it, how can they convince others to respect their rules?

Since its inception, the international criminal court (ICC) has charged 50 people, 47 of whom were African. Its investigations have also been overwhelmingly focused on war crimes and crimes against humanity in African nations. What has long been understood but never stated is that the court and its processes, to put it bluntly, target a certain type of political leadership that is easier to go after. aThe court is built for Africans and thugs like Putin,a is what one appalled elected senior leader reportedly told the ICC prosecutor, Karim Khan, when his team made a recent application for arrest warrants for Israelas prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, its defence minister, Yoav Gallant, and three Hamas leaders.

Again, blunt, but not revelatory. At least not to the parts of the world that are more familiar with the court and its investigations. The lineup of suspects and defendants has long solidified the impression below the equator that the ICC is a court for Africans, and lately maybe Russians. How can that not be the takeaway when, in the years since the court was founded, the US a often with British support a has calamitously invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, established an extrajudicial prison for terror suspects, and created a CIA torture and detention network? African conflicts are seen as intimate, tribal and intentional in a way that those in other places are not. The underlying suggestion is that civilians in western wars are killed and illegally detained by accident, while other countries do this on purpose.

The brutal repression of student protests from Amsterdam to Los Angeles is exposing failings at the heart of our universities

Across the world, university students have set up encampments to protest against the humanitarian disaster unfolding in Gaza and put pressure on academic institutions and governments. Whatever one thinks of their message and of their requests, their moral indignation in the face of avoidable human suffering is one we should all be able to share.

I find it inspiring that this student movement has been spearheaded by a generation that was too quickly labelled apolitical and self-absorbed. Think about it: these students grew up in the bleak post-9/11 world, with a future foreclosed by the 2008 financial crisis and the climate meltdown. They are still reeling from two years of pandemic that have taken a heavy educational and emotional toll. Still, this generation has succeeded in organising a global movement that is coordinated, smart and humane. It deserves much better than condescension.

From https:

It wasnat even my decision. But being forced to ditch them after surgery was a revelation. Who cares what people think?

Society has unwritten rules that weare all expected to follow and that can dictate some of the most intimate choices in our lives a from family structure and career and lifestyle decisions to the underwear we wear. That last one may seem out of left field, but itas true that society tells girls of all ages that as soon as their breasts start forming wearing a bra is the appropriate and decent thing to do.

When I was a little girl, I could hardly wait to start wearing a bra. To me, it was a symbol of growing up, becoming a woman, and I began wearing one long before it was anecessarya. As a teenager, I found it fun to buy every different colour and style available until I had dozens to choose from. Back then, I accepted the discomfort of strapping down my breasts as one of the many unfair consequences of being female. I thought there was no other choice.

Iam a TikTok creator. Iave used TikTok to build a multimillion dollar business, focused on sharing interesting things Iave learned in life and throughout my years in college.

Why does the US government want to ban TikTok? The reasons given include TikTokas foreign ownership and its aaddictivea nature, but I suspect that part of the reason is that the app primarily appeals to younger generations who often hold political and moral views that differ significantly from those of older generations, including many of todayas politicians.

Lads who just want to smell nice debating aldehydes, vetiver heart notes and the sillage (lingering scent trail) of fragrances created by or bearing the names of extremely successful gay men? That feels like a breath of fresh (OK, heavily scented) air compared with the fetid misogynistic manosphere theyare also exposed to.

Manchester Unitedas win made the FA Cup final seem like it matters again

From https:

A derby victory over Manchester City at Wembley helped Erik ten Hagas team gain some self-respect after recent domination by their closest rivals

Some days, you wonder just why the FA Cup seems so embattled. Saturdayas final felt like a throwback: a sunny spring day, a sense of subplots coming together in an occasion that genuinely mattered, drama on the pitch and ultimately a shock. Perhaps it wasnat quite Sunderland beating Leeds in 1973 or Southampton beating Manchester United in 1976 (or even Wigan beating Manchester City in 2013). But United finished lower in the league this season (eighth) than Wimbledon (seventh) did when they beat champions Liverpool in 1988. The status and histories of the clubs shouldnat disguise what a shock Unitedas victory over City was.

For United, it was a great occasion. For them a first FA Cup in eight years and just their second trophy in seven, a step-up on the League Cup they won under Erik ten Hag last season. But more than that, they stopped City becoming the first club to win the Double in successive seasons. Itas not just about succeeding; itas about the failure of others, especially your closest rivals.

Why the National Spelling Bee is more vital than ever in the age of AI

From https:

The 96th Scripps National Spelling Bee, which begins Tuesday, is a celebration of discipline and focus in a world where those things appear to be in vanishing supply

A question that I perennially encounter when I tell people that I am a professional spelling bee tutor is: aWhy bother with spelling bees when we have spell check?a Itas an eminently understandable response, especially when it comes from people who have never watched a bee. Cell phones and computers have no problem storing the entire corpus of the English dictionary and consulting it at a momentas notice. Like all games and sports, spelling bees arenat strictly speaking necessary or useful a at least not in an immediately practical way. Yet questions about spelling beesa utility (or lack thereof) miss what makes them so beloved a why it broke spellersa and logophilesa hearts when the Scripps National Spelling Bee was cancelled in 2020 amid the pandemic; why the Bee was quickly revived in 2021 and 2022, with altered rules and a partially virtual format; and why the Bee continues to captivate people internationally, motivating countries like Jamaica, China, and Ghana to send teams to Washington DC to compete.

The rise of artificial intelligence is provoking a great deal of anxiety these days. The development of machine-learning technologies which vastly outstrip human abilities forces us to meditate upon what, in the final analysis, differentiates us from AIs. It also compels us to consider which spheres of human life we think ought to be automated, and which activities we feel should be defended against AI incursions.

Party like itas 1999: 10 movies that encapsulate one of the greatest years for cinema
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 08:00:17 GMT

It was the year when arthouse brains met Hollywood brawn. But what made the last 12 months of the 90s so special? These films tell the story

In 1999, cinemagoers flocked to watch The Talented Mr Ripley, in which Jude Law smoked cigarettes in a lazily buttoned linen shirt. The same year, they could also watch the actor getting a socket stamped into the base of his spine so he could play a video game. In David Cronenbergas Existenz, Lawas character is fitted with a gnarly looking aUmbyCorda and hooked up to a creepy, pulsing virtual reality game apoda that mines his nervous system for data as he plays. While plugged in, the player is unable to take stock of the areala world outside. aYou wonat be able to stop yourself, so you might as well enjoy it,a says the gameas creator, a line that feels spookily resonant today.

I am certainly not the first person to notice that 1999 was a great year for film. At the time, Entertainment Weekly ran a piece with the headline: 1999: The Year That Changed Movies, declaring it the year aall the old, boring rules about cinema started to crumblea. Itas not that films such as The Virgin Suicides, The Sixth Sense and Fight Club are better than everything else that came before or after, but that 1999as harvest was a bumper crop. That yearas freakish climate saw cross-pollination between Hollywood studios with money and independent-minded film-makers with vision. It was a period that saw cinema creating the culture instead of second-guessing it.

Alien? Mission: Impossible? Toy Story? What is the greatest movie franchise ever?
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 11:00:21 GMT
From https:

With new chapters in the worlds of Mad Max and Planet of the Apes out now, Guardian writers have picked their favourite big screen franchises to date

When a blockbuster franchise is seven movies in (and counting), and the consensus choice for worst entry was directed by John Woo, arguably the most influential action film-maker of his time, youare looking at an uncommonly consistent series. Though the Mission: Impossible movies have cycled through many directors a one apiece for Brian De Palma, Woo, JJ Abrams and Brad Bird, before settling on Christopher McQuarrie a the first film, particularly the astounding Langley break-in sequence, established the franchise as a showcase for impeccable crafted set pieces. The plots may be an enjoyably hokey tangle of global threats and clever unmaskings, but the seriesa determination to keep topping itself, leaning on the physicality of stunt work and practical effects, has provided reliable thrills for approaching three decades. With each film, Tom Cruise continues to outrun his own mortality and another classic sequence or two is added to the inventory, from Cruise dangling from the Burj Khalifa high-rise during a sandstorm in Ghost Protocol to him zipping off a cliff on a motorcycle in Dead Reckoning Part One. Itas a high-wire act that has yet to tumble off the line. Scott Tobias

Museumas experts realised painteras Ecce Homo had been misattributed in auction catalogue

The Ecce Homo, painted in the Italian masteras dark and desperate last years, made headlines around the world after experts at the museum spotted it in an auction catalogue and rang Spainas culture ministry to share their suspicions that the painting had been misattributed.

Moosa Lane review a loving cinematic bridge between two countries and cultures
Date: Mon, 27 May 2024 12:00:22 GMT
From https:

Shot over 15 years between Denmark and Pakistan, the film-maker captures day-to-day life in Karachi, and explores how freedom and human rights are not doled out equally

Shot over the course of 15 years, Anita Mathal Hoplandas documentary provides a cinematic bridge between two countries. Born in Denmark to a Norwegian mother and a Pakistani father, the director lived in Copenhagen yet found herself unmoored between cultures. Camera in hand, Hopland makes several trips to Moosa Lane, the street in Karachi, Pakistanas largest city, where 25 members of her fatheras family share a single dwelling. Through her lens, she lovingly documents the colourful day-to-day lives of her relatives. In the face of diasporic longing, the act of filming embodies a desire to connect and set roots in a world divided by borders.

Focusing on three of her family members, Hoplandas film also observes changing cultural attitudes among Pakistani youths. Readying herself for an arranged marriage, Hoplandas niece Saima is content to follow tradition. Meanwhile, Alishba, who was only two years old when shooting started, has grown into a spirited teen who dreams of pursuing financial and professional independence. A ball of energy, Alishba approaches the dangerous streets and the beautiful open beaches with the same zest for adventure. As Hoplandas camera zigzags between Karachi and Denmark, the montage articulates how the idea of free movement is reserved only for the privileged. Her journeys to Pakistan had always been one-sided, as it was nearly impossible for her relatives to travel to Europe, for economic and visa reasons.

A new start after 60: I always battled with my body image a until I became a bodybuilder at 64

After two divorces and an eating disorder, Marlene Flowers knew a change was needed. Her son suggested she start building her strength and she soon found her self-confidence growing ...

In 2021, at 64 years old, Marlene Flowers entered her first bodybuilding competition. Oiled, tanned and wearing a bikini, the auto repair shop owner from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, found herself under bright lights on stage, twisting and contorting to show off her taut muscles alongside people half her age. Once the flexing was over, she then performed a one-minute posing routine to the theme song from Flashdance, one of her favourite films. aI was terrified to get out there but as soon as I did, I realised everyone was so encouraging and supportive,a she says. aWe all wanted each other to succeed and I walked away with a trophy.a

If you had told Flowers when she was in her 50s that she would be inviting people to judge her figure, she would have laughed in your face. She had a natural aptitude for freestyle swimming as a child, but struggled with her body image. Self-conscious and often shy, Flowers went on to marry and divorce twice. aIt all affected my self-esteem and I ended up with an eating disorder for many years,a she says. aIt was getting worse and worse until I was hospitalised for issues relating to my weight loss at 58. That was my wake-up call.a
