Tired of colonial artefacts being hoarded, Chidi Nwaubani and Ahmed Abokor use tech to redistribute them from museums in audacious digital heists

In March last year, two men in tracksuits, wearing hockey masks and carrying matching laundry bags, headed for the British Museum. Just outside, patrolling police asked the two strange-looking men where they were going. aWeare going to the British Museum to loot back stolen goods,a one of them said. aWell, weall see you in there then!a the policewoman answered.

But no arrests were made, as nothing incriminating happened.

Dead Boy Detectives review a this fun paranormal romp will make you feel young again
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 07:00:18 GMT
From https:

The latest Neil Gaiman story about two ghosts on the run has spells, shenanigans and supernatural horrors galore. Itas impossible not to be entertained by such escapist adventures

Given the amount of exposition clunked out, the first episode of Dead Boy Detectives sure is confusing. But I think I have it worked out. There are two boys a best friends Charles (Jayden Revri) and Edwin (George Rexstrew). They are both dead a lippy Charles carked it in the 1980s, stiffly Edwardian Edwin in 1916. Somehow they are both still on Earth (though we learn that Edwin spent some time in hell before escaping) and are using their time to find souls trapped less happily here and release them. The first we meet is a maddened first world war soldier in a cursed gas mask they must slice off before Death (Kirby, formerly known as Kirby Howell-Baptiste). They always have to hide from Death lest she collect them too. They are actually dead boy detectives on the lam. Fortunately, they can jump into mirrors to escape and to travel. Charles also has a backpack that holds an infinite number of items, which is such a cheat by the creators that you can only applaud wildly. What else do you need to know? Oh, they can be hurt by iron. Ironas a thing for them.

So now, on with the show! Which is aimed at a young audience, who should love it. It whips along and, after the confusing start, finds a clairvoyant and a groove that work brilliantly. The clairvoyant, Crystal Palace (Kassius Nelson, with screen presence to burn) joins the pair after they release her from a demonic possession. She canat remember a thing about herself but has a psychic vision that tells her where a missing child is being held, surrounded by black magic and supernatural horrors.

Lies, confections, distortions: how the right made London the most vilified place in Britain | Aditya Chakrabortty

Our capital has many problems, but it is time to push back against attacks from those who neither know nor understand it

I have been reading about the most abysmal place. It is a land where children, red-faced with their own radicalism, march alongside bearded Islamists to make the streets a no-go zone, while nodding-dog liberals curse the Brexiter masses for inflating the cost of their arugula. It boasts an infinite array of pronouns; multimillion-pound townhouses whose residents demand you check your privilege; a thousand rainbow flags, but not a single St Georgeas cross. It is rife with criminal behaviour, which extends far beyond the prices charged by pub landlords. Hieronymus Bosch, put down your paintbrush: this place truly is Hell.

Fair to say America isnat gripped by Liz Trussmania. Here"s what she can learn from Mr Bean | Emma Brockes

Our former PM has a dire warning and a book to sell, but it isnat really cutting through. A bit more Brit-style bumbling might help

aI know the name,a texts a friend when I ask if she knows who Liz Truss is, but like most Americans canat quite put her finger on why. aLike 8%,a guesses another when I ask her to put a number on how many of her countrymen she imagines know of Truss. The standard response, in my extremely unscientific poll of Americans as to whether or not they know of Truss, however, was: aNo, should I?a a the answer to which, of course, depends entirely on whether you want to understand why the Tory party is polling around 20% or whether you happen to be Liz Truss.

Truss, the only one of us to suffer that particular misfortune, was in Washington DC this week trying, like so many minor British celebrities before her, to catch the eye of the Americans. At the Heritage Foundation, a rightwing thinktank that hosted the launch of Trussas book Ten Years to Save the West, she came bearing a awarninga. Not an ideal ice-breaker, perhaps, but one clearly tailored to an audience receptive to the frisson of the term aforces of the global lefta.

The US supreme court heard one of the most sadistic, extreme anti-abortion cases yet | Moira Donegan
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 10:01:22 GMT
From https:

Idahoas law requires doctors to treat pregnant womenas health as disposable a and the loss of their lives as an acceptable risk

The risk of stating plainly what Idaho argued at the US supreme court on Wednesday morning is that it is so sadistic and extreme that people might not believe you. Idaho has one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the country. Prohibiting all abortions at any stage of gestation, with no exceptions for rape or incest, the Idaho law allows doctors to perform abortions in cases where the life a but not amerelya the health a of the pregnant woman is at risk.

In practice, this has wound up being a ban on abortions needed to save womenas lives: according to Idaho hospitals, six pregnant women experiencing medical emergencies have had to be airlifted across state lines to hospitals in states with life and health exemptions in the months since Idaho began enforcing its abortion ban. One way to describe this state of affairs is to say that Idahoas abortion law has come into conflict with medical best practice. Another way to describe it is to say that the law has forced pregnant women to flee the state for their lives.

Smacking a child is just an act of violence. Why do England and Northern Ireland still allow it? | Frances Ryan
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 06:00:19 GMT
From https:

It is perverse that adults are legally protected from violence, yet striking a child can be defended. Calls for a ban are getting louder

When a child is scared of their parents, they can spend a long time plucking up the courage to talk. I learned this during a decade of volunteering as a Childline counsellor. There is a 20-second period, in between saying your name and waiting for them to share theirs, that is the most silent the air can ever be. You could hear a pin drop or just a calleras breath echoing on the receiver. In that moment, a young girl who has been slapped by her father is deciding whether to ask for help or to hang up and try again to form the words in a week or two.

I thought of this silence as I read calls from leading doctors to ban parents from smacking their children in England and Northern Ireland. Unlike in Scotland and Wales a where over the past four years the Victorian-era law that allows it has been overturned a it is still legal for a parent or carer to hit, smack or slap their child if it is a areasonablea punishment.

Why we need to stop using apro-Palestinea and apro-Israela | Judith Levine
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 10:13:22 GMT
From https:

The safety and security of Palestinians and Jews are interdependent, so we should use language carefully

In reporting on the encampments springing up on college campuses across the US, the media seem to have convened a terminology confab and agreed on two descriptions: apro-Palestiniana and aanti-Israela. These labels oversimplify Americansa opinions on Israelas onslaught against Gaza, which marked its 200th day on Tuesday with no end in sight. But the error is worse than semantic.

aUniversities Struggle as Pro-Palestinian Demonstrations Grow,a says the New York Times. aColleges Struggle to Contain Intensifying Pro-Palestinian Protests,a reports the Wall Street Journal. In Minneapolis, the Star Tribune has the local news that the aUniversity of Minnesota police arrest 9 after pro-Palestinian encampment set up on campusa. Some publications less shy about displaying their political biases take the opposite tack. A headline in the right-leaning New York Post, for instance, exaggerated the literally incendiary nature of the demonstratorsa tactics: aAnti-Israel protesters carry flares to March on NYPD HQ after 130 arrested at NYU.a The accompanying video is cast in red. Ever evenhanded, CBS does both: aPro-Palestinian, pro-Israel protesters gather outside Columbia University.a

From https:

The late elder statesman understood the need for a progressive realignment of British politics. That prize shouldnat be lost

David Marquand and Frank Field, both of whom died this week, never sat on the Labour benches together. The professor of politics and the long-serving backbench MP had very different temperaments too, one searchingly academic, the other a bold moraliser. They also disagreed about many of the big issues in British politics, the European Union above all.

But they also had some hugely important things in common. Both started as free-thinking Labour MPs a Marquand in 1966 and Field in 1979. Both possessed a rare degree of intellectual and spiritual hinterland. Both then went on lifetime political journeys. These took them increasingly away from Labour, though they always remained in Labouras orbit.

Ministers of Germany, Brazil, South Africa and Spain: why we need a global tax on billionaires

From https:

Finance chiefs say higher taxes for the super-rich are key to battling global inequality and climate crisis

When the governors of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund convened for the spring meetings last week, it was all about the really big questions. What can the international community do to accelerate decarbonisation and fight climate change? How can highly indebted countries retain fiscal space to invest in poverty eradication, social services and global public goods? What does the international community need to do to get back on track towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? How can multilateral development banks be strengthened to support these ambitions?

There is one issue that makes addressing these global challenges much harder: inequality. While the disparity between the richest and poorest countries has slightly narrowed, the gap remains alarmingly high. Moreover, in the past two decades, we have witnessed a significant increase in inequalities within most countries, with the income gap between the top 10% and the bottom 50% nearly doubling. Looking ahead, current global economic trends pose serious threats to progress towards higher equality.

Udogieas absence could hurt Spurs in defence and attack against Arsenal | Ben McAleer

Full-back has been key in Postecoglouas system but is out for the season a while Pedro Porro could also miss Sundayas derby

By Ben McAleer for WhoScored

When it was confirmed over the weekend that Destiny Udogie would sit out the rest of the season, Tottenham supporters were understandably devastated. The Italian has enjoyed a whirlwind debut campaign at Spurs following his loan spell with Udinese last season, consolidating a first-team spot and becoming a key player for Ange Postecoglouas side.

Yes, the form has dipped in recent weeks, though that may be symptomatic of a wider problem with Spurs, but he had nailed down the starting left-back role. In short, to lose Udogie with matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City looming is a disaster. Much of that is down to how Spurs play. With the full-backs granted license to push forwards, the Italian helps to bulk out the midfield, granting his attacking teammates freedom to hurt opponents.

FTSE 100 hits another record, as buyout offer for Anglo American increases worries about an exodus from London

BHPas proposal to buy Anglo American is a amonstera deal, says analyst Neil Wilson of Markets.com.

He explains:

Anglo shares jumped 11% at the open. Anglo has not had a great year a the rally this morning has erased the losses of the last 12 months, just. Itas got the assets but is not maybe doing as well as it might; in December the company downgraded its production targets. BHP clearly wants the copper assets a itas not long after buying Oz Minerals.

Clearly, competition authorities would take note due to the position in copper a combined company would have. South African platinum and iron ore assets would be spun off, which could be politically sensitive. If BHP doesnat make it work, others may try. Shares trade at APS24.80, a little shy of the APS25.08 implied by the offer a not much discount, suggesting itas a) being treated seriously and b) could go higher.

The biggest headline-grabber today is news that BHP has made a buyout approach for Anglo American. Angloas exposure to copper compared to other listed miners is core area of BHPas focus, as it looks to benefit from the material as the energy transition gathers pace.

At the same time, BHP is looking to make hay while the sun shines on the gold price, but a deal of this magnitude does little to reassure investors itas prioritising cost targets. BHP is also taking advantage of Angloas more recent weakness, which has seen it review its assets and write down their value. Should the deal go ahead, it would interrupt the long-term potential for Anglo investors, at a time when a turnaround is likely.

Ukraine war briefing: Long-range Atacms already hitting Russian forces

From https:

Joe Biden gave missiles to Ukraine under prior funding, after the US reportedly warned Russia against using long-range missiles in Ukraine. What we know on day 792

Atacms long-ranges missiles capable of hitting targets 300km away had already arrived in Ukraine this month at the presidentas direction, before the US security package was passed by Congress on Wednesday, the state department has said. Vedant Patel, a state department spokesperson, explained that the weapons were part of a March aid package for Ukraine a not the one just approved by Congress and signed by Joe Biden. aWe did not announce this at the onset in order to maintain operational security for Ukraine at their request.a

Ukraine has begun using the long-range Atacms, bombing a Russian military airfield in Crimea last week and Russian forces in another occupied area in recent days, two US officials have told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. One of them said the Biden administration previously warned Russia that if it used long-range ballistic missiles in Ukraine, Washington would provide the same capability to the Ukrainians. Russia has since done so.

Separately, Adm Christopher Grady, vice-chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, told the Associated Press that long-range weapons would help Ukraine take out Russian logistics and troop concentrations behind the frontlines. He explained how the decision to supply them was considered carefully and at length. aI think the time is right, and the boss [Biden] made the decision the time is right to provide these based on where the fight is right now.a

Ukraineas foreign minister has praised US politicians for approving the long-delayed $61bn military aid package for Ukraine, but said western allies needed to recognise that athe era of peace in Europe is overa and that Kyiv would inevitably need more help to fight off Russia, Dan Sabbagh and Luke Harding write from Kyiv.

Ukraine has stopped issuing new passports at offices abroad to some military-aged male citizens, according to legislation published on Wednesday, as part of measures to push them to return home amid manpower shortages in the army. The announcement came a day after the suspension of consular services for men aged 18 to 60 living abroad until the new law on mobilisation is implemented. Ukraineas foreign ministry said the passport suspension applied only to new applications and that any requests previously submitted would be honoured.

In Warsaw, Poland, hundreds of Ukrainians crowded outside a closed passport office in a confused scene. There was anger among those who felt they were being unfairly targeted. aThis is a fight against people who are fleeing the army,a said Maksym, a 38-year-old truck driver. aWe are not asked on what grounds we went abroad a| Why am I a draft dodger if I went abroad legally?a Ukraineas ambassador to Poland, Vasyl Zvarych, told AFP that aall applications submitted to the consular offices of Ukraine before April 23 a| will be processed in full and passport documents will be issued to such peoplea.

Ukraineas president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said a group of Ukrainian children were ain Qatar for medical, mental, and social recoverya, after Russia claimed an exchange of displaced children was taking place. aAll of them had previously been forcibly deported to Russia, but thanks to our friendly Qataras mediation efforts, they have been released,a said Zelenskiy, without addressing Russiaas claim that 48 children were involved in an exchange.

Tomorrowas Freedom review a does this man know the way to peace in Israel and Palestine?
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 08:00:19 GMT
From https:

Sombre documentary focuses on the former Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, and how he is becoming a Mandela-like figure since his imprisonment in 2002

Here is a film that offers something not generally on offer in the media: an envisioning of the future and a road map, or part of a road map, out of the present situation in Israel and Palestine. Itas about Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, an initial supporter of the 1993 and 1995 Oslo peace accords who became progressively disillusioned with the slow choreography of international consensus, and was ultimately imprisoned in 2002 for authorising deadly attacks on Israel. Barghoutias position is not that he is innocent, but that an Israeli court has no right to try him.

During the long years since, he has gone on hunger strike, been beaten and abused in captivity; his grownup children have themselves been targeted and arrested and his wife Fadwa has been repeatedly refused permission to visit him. But the film shows that something else has been happening as well: the Mandela-isation of Barghouti, a process which the Israeli forces themselves may well come to see as convenient, when in some future time they need an internationally accepted figure with whom to negotiate.

From https:

Jailed since the first intifada, Abu Srour charts a deeply personal journey through the conflict that has defined his life

Attempts to end the violence inGaza have focused on the exchange of Israeli hostages taken by Hamas on 7 October for Palestinians held in Israeli prisons. One of the many Palestinians is Nasser Abu Srour, who has been incarcerated since 1993 for his alleged involvement in the death of an Israeli intelligence officer during the first intifada. Thisisthe fourth time the prospect offreedom has been raised, the past three ending in disappointment, even when his release was part of a 2013 peace process pledge brokered by the Obamaadministration.

His experience might be difficult toimagine but for the extraordinary memoir he has written, translated intolyrical prose by Luke Leafgren. aThis is the story of a wall that somehow chose me as the witness ofwhat it said and did,a he begins.

Thereas Still Tomorrow review a resoundingly sentimental drama in postwar Rome

From https:

Paola Cortellesias directing debut, in which she also stars, depicts gruelling domestic abuse before finding its way to startling redemption

Italian actor and singer Paola Cortellesi has been breaking hearts and box office records on her home turf with this directing debut. Itas a richly and even outrageously sentimental working-class drama of postwar Rome, a story of domestic abuse whose heroine finally escapes from misogyny and cruelty through a piece of narrative sleight-of-hand that borders on magic-neorealism, performed with shameless theatrical flair and marvellously composed in luminous monochrome. The film pays homage to early pictures by De Sica and Fellini, and Cortellesias own performance is consciously in the spirit of movie divas such as Anna Magnani, Sophia Loren and Giulietta Masina.

The scene is Rome just after the end of the second world war, when American GIs were a presence on the streets and Italian women had just been given the right to vote a though exercising it while under the baleful eye of the filmas misogynist menfolk is another matter. Cortellesi plays Delia, a woman who is being regularly beaten by her brutish husband Ivano (Valerio Mastandrea). He makes her slave around the house, skivvy to his cantankerous bedridden father (great stuff from veteran comic turn Giorgio Colangeli), and do odd jobs around the city, the cash payment for which she has to hand over at the end of every day. Their teenage daughter Marcella (Romana Maggiora Vergano), who sees how her mother is being brutalised and humiliated, is made to sleep in the same bedroom as her two brattish kid brothers, and when she receives a proposal of marriage from a well-off local boy, she, like her parents, is thrilled a at first.

Ministers of Germany, Brazil, South Africa and Spain: why we need a global tax on billionaires

From https:

Finance chiefs say higher taxes for the super-rich are key to battling global inequality and climate crisis

When the governors of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund convened for the spring meetings last week, it was all about the really big questions. What can the international community do to accelerate decarbonisation and fight climate change? How can highly indebted countries retain fiscal space to invest in poverty eradication, social services and global public goods? What does the international community need to do to get back on track towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? How can multilateral development banks be strengthened to support these ambitions?

There is one issue that makes addressing these global challenges much harder: inequality. While the disparity between the richest and poorest countries has slightly narrowed, the gap remains alarmingly high. Moreover, in the past two decades, we have witnessed a significant increase in inequalities within most countries, with the income gap between the top 10% and the bottom 50% nearly doubling. Looking ahead, current global economic trends pose serious threats to progress towards higher equality.

Ukraine war briefing: Long-range Atacms already hitting Russian forces

From https:

Joe Biden gave missiles to Ukraine under prior funding, after the US reportedly warned Russia against using long-range missiles in Ukraine. What we know on day 792

Atacms long-ranges missiles capable of hitting targets 300km away had already arrived in Ukraine this month at the presidentas direction, before the US security package was passed by Congress on Wednesday, the state department has said. Vedant Patel, a state department spokesperson, explained that the weapons were part of a March aid package for Ukraine a not the one just approved by Congress and signed by Joe Biden. aWe did not announce this at the onset in order to maintain operational security for Ukraine at their request.a

Ukraine has begun using the long-range Atacms, bombing a Russian military airfield in Crimea last week and Russian forces in another occupied area in recent days, two US officials have told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. One of them said the Biden administration previously warned Russia that if it used long-range ballistic missiles in Ukraine, Washington would provide the same capability to the Ukrainians. Russia has since done so.

Separately, Adm Christopher Grady, vice-chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, told the Associated Press that long-range weapons would help Ukraine take out Russian logistics and troop concentrations behind the frontlines. He explained how the decision to supply them was considered carefully and at length. aI think the time is right, and the boss [Biden] made the decision the time is right to provide these based on where the fight is right now.a

Ukraineas foreign minister has praised US politicians for approving the long-delayed $61bn military aid package for Ukraine, but said western allies needed to recognise that athe era of peace in Europe is overa and that Kyiv would inevitably need more help to fight off Russia, Dan Sabbagh and Luke Harding write from Kyiv.

Ukraine has stopped issuing new passports at offices abroad to some military-aged male citizens, according to legislation published on Wednesday, as part of measures to push them to return home amid manpower shortages in the army. The announcement came a day after the suspension of consular services for men aged 18 to 60 living abroad until the new law on mobilisation is implemented. Ukraineas foreign ministry said the passport suspension applied only to new applications and that any requests previously submitted would be honoured.

In Warsaw, Poland, hundreds of Ukrainians crowded outside a closed passport office in a confused scene. There was anger among those who felt they were being unfairly targeted. aThis is a fight against people who are fleeing the army,a said Maksym, a 38-year-old truck driver. aWe are not asked on what grounds we went abroad a| Why am I a draft dodger if I went abroad legally?a Ukraineas ambassador to Poland, Vasyl Zvarych, told AFP that aall applications submitted to the consular offices of Ukraine before April 23 a| will be processed in full and passport documents will be issued to such peoplea.

Ukraineas president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said a group of Ukrainian children were ain Qatar for medical, mental, and social recoverya, after Russia claimed an exchange of displaced children was taking place. aAll of them had previously been forcibly deported to Russia, but thanks to our friendly Qataras mediation efforts, they have been released,a said Zelenskiy, without addressing Russiaas claim that 48 children were involved in an exchange. Russiaas childrenas rights commissioner, Maria Lvova-Belova, who is wanted for war crimes by the international criminal court, claimed Russia was handing over 29 children to Ukraine and 19 were going to Russia.

Ukrainian drones attacked oil facilities in western Russia, defence sources in Kyiv confirmed on Wednesday.

FTSE 100 hits another record, as buyout offer for Anglo American increases worries about an exodus from London

BHPas proposal to buy Anglo American is a amonstera deal, says analyst Neil Wilson of Markets.com.

He explains:

Anglo shares jumped 11% at the open. Anglo has not had a great year a the rally this morning has erased the losses of the last 12 months, just. Itas got the assets but is not maybe doing as well as it might; in December the company downgraded its production targets. BHP clearly wants the copper assets a itas not long after buying Oz Minerals.

Clearly, competition authorities would take note due to the position in copper a combined company would have. South African platinum and iron ore assets would be spun off, which could be politically sensitive. If BHP doesnat make it work, others may try. Shares trade at APS24.80, a little shy of the APS25.08 implied by the offer a not much discount, suggesting itas a) being treated seriously and b) could go higher.

The biggest headline-grabber today is news that BHP has made a buyout approach for Anglo American. Angloas exposure to copper compared to other listed miners is core area of BHPas focus, as it looks to benefit from the material as the energy transition gathers pace.

At the same time, BHP is looking to make hay while the sun shines on the gold price, but a deal of this magnitude does little to reassure investors itas prioritising cost targets. BHP is also taking advantage of Angloas more recent weakness, which has seen it review its assets and write down their value. Should the deal go ahead, it would interrupt the long-term potential for Anglo investors, at a time when a turnaround is likely.

Sombre documentary focuses on the former Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, and how he is becoming a Mandela-like figure since his imprisonment in 2002

Here is a film that offers something not generally on offer in the media: an envisioning of the future and a road map, or part of a road map, out of the present situation in Israel and Palestine. Itas about Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, an initial supporter of the 1993 and 1995 Oslo peace accords who became progressively disillusioned with the slow choreography of international consensus, and was ultimately imprisoned in 2002 for authorising deadly attacks on Israel. Barghoutias position is not that he is innocent, but that an Israeli court has no right to try him.

During the long years since, he has gone on hunger strike, been beaten and abused in captivity; his grownup children have themselves been targeted and arrested and his wife Fadwa has been repeatedly refused permission to visit him. But the film shows that something else has been happening as well: the Mandela-isation of Barghouti, a process which the Israeli forces themselves may well come to see as convenient, when in some future time they need an internationally accepted figure with whom to negotiate.

Uncle Vanya review a Steve Carell leads excellent cast in Chekhov reimagining
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 01:00:11 GMT
From https:

Vivian Beaumont Theater, New York

The star makes a convincing Broadway debut in a tragicomic winner staged with thought and deft flashes of modernity

As with Appropriate, another outstanding, claustrophobic family drama directed by Lila Neugebauer on Broadway this season, the new Broadway revival of Uncle Vanya, now playing at Lincoln Center, plays to the sound of oppressive heat. The trill of crickets, the buzz of cicadas a from the first minute, the setting is effectively muggy, at once nostalgic and portentous. (Mikhail Fiksel and Beth Lake did the sound design.) Itas the country, and the characters of Anton Chekhovas pastoral drama of discontents wear the bucolic setting uncomfortably. In this adaptation of the 1898 play by the playwright and translator Heidi Schreck, one recalls another, more recent time of entrapment with a motley crew of relatives and friends, itchy for escape, or something more.

Chief among the grumbles is Uncle Vanya, the manager of a country estate capably played by Steve Carell in his Broadway debut. Carell, primarily known for his comic roles, leans into the bathos of a middle-aged manas petty grievances and dyspeptic musings; his Vanya has a mischievous wink to his digs and precise comic timing, particularly when itas at the expense of Professor Alexander (Alfred Molina, also quite funny as an out-of-touch narcissist in ill health). The Professor and his much younger, beautiful wife Elena (Anika Noni Rose) have lived off the estateas profits in the city (formerly Moscow, but not named here) for years, but have returned for an indefinite convalescence, upending everyoneas fragile contentment a that of Vanya, who is in love with Elena and bored to tears; Elena, who is also bored to tears; provincial Dr Astrov (The Good Placeas William Jackson Harper, a standout in this celebrity cast), who is also in love with Elena; and Sonia (Alison Pill), who is hopelessly in love with Astrov.

And They Lived a| Ever After is a south Asian book of reworked European classics written by women with disabilities

A deaf Snow White, a blind Cinderella, a neurodivergent ugly duckling and a wheelchair-using Rapunzel: classic European fairytales have been reimagined in a new anthropology of stories written by south Asian women with disabilities.

aWhen disabled people donat see themselves in the world, it tells us that we donat deserve to exist, that these stories are not for us, that stories of love and friendship are not for us, and certainly not happy endings,a says Nidhi Ashok Goyal, the founder of Rising Flame, a feminist disability rights group that has produced the book, called And They Lived a| Ever After.

From https:

Britainas first black female MP faced hostility from the media and political establishment from the start. Nearly 40 years on, she is still not giving up

Six weeks ago, the Conservativesa biggestdonor, Frank Hester, was revealed by the Guardian to have spoken at a meeting of his healthcare company, the Phoenix Partnership, about one of Britainas longest-serving and mostpioneering MPs. aYou see Diane Abbott on the TV and a| you just want tohate all black women,a Hester said. aI think she should beshot.a

The meeting had taken place in 2019, when Abbott was Labouras shadow home secretary. As a lifelong defender of civil liberties, a radical leftwinger and a close ally of the then party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, Abbott was notably different from previous holders of the role. But there was an anger and viciousness to Hesteras remarks, which are being investigated by the police, and also a limit to the Labour support for her that they prompted, which was very striking.

Dead Boy Detectives review a this fun paranormal romp will make you feel young again
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 07:00:18 GMT
From https:

The latest Neil Gaiman story about two ghosts on the run has spells, shenanigans and supernatural horrors galore. Itas impossible not to be entertained by such escapist adventures

Given the amount of exposition clunked out, the first episode of Dead Boy Detectives sure is confusing. But I think I have it worked out. There are two boys a best friends Charles (Jayden Revri) and Edwin (George Rexstrew). They are both dead a lippy Charles carked it in the 1980s, stiffly Edwardian Edwin in 1916. Somehow they are both still on Earth (though we learn that Edwin spent some time in hell before escaping) and are using their time to find souls trapped less happily here and release them. The first we meet is a maddened first world war soldier in a cursed gas mask they must slice off before Death (Kirby, formerly known as Kirby Howell-Baptiste). They always have to hide from Death lest she collect them too. They are actually dead boy detectives on the lam. Fortunately, they can jump into mirrors to escape and to travel. Charles also has a backpack that holds an infinite number of items, which is such a cheat by the creators that you can only applaud wildly. What else do you need to know? Oh, they can be hurt by iron. Ironas a thing for them.

So now, on with the show! Which is aimed at a young audience, who should love it. It whips along and, after the confusing start, finds a clairvoyant and a groove that work brilliantly. The clairvoyant, Crystal Palace (Kassius Nelson, with screen presence to burn) joins the pair after they release her from a demonic possession. She canat remember a thing about herself but has a psychic vision that tells her where a missing child is being held, surrounded by black magic and supernatural horrors.

Our capital has many problems, but it is time to push back against attacks from those who neither know nor understand it

I have been reading about the most abysmal place. It is a land where children, red-faced with their own radicalism, march alongside bearded Islamists to make the streets a no-go zone, while nodding-dog liberals curse the Brexiter masses for inflating the cost of their arugula. It boasts an infinite array of pronouns; multimillion-pound townhouses whose residents demand you check your privilege; a thousand rainbow flags, but not a single St Georgeas cross. It is rife with criminal behaviour, which extends far beyond the prices charged by pub landlords. Hieronymus Bosch, put down your paintbrush: this place truly is Hell.

Fair to say America isnat gripped by Liz Trussmania. Here"s what she can learn from Mr Bean | Emma Brockes

Our former PM has a dire warning and a book to sell, but it isnat really cutting through. A bit more Brit-style bumbling might help

aI know the name,a texts a friend when I ask if she knows who Liz Truss is, but like most Americans canat quite put her finger on why. aLike 8%,a guesses another when I ask her to put a number on how many of her countrymen she imagines know of Truss. The standard response, in my extremely unscientific poll of Americans as to whether or not they know of Truss, however, was: aNo, should I?a a the answer to which, of course, depends entirely on whether you want to understand why the Tory party is polling around 20% or whether you happen to be Liz Truss.

Truss, the only one of us to suffer that particular misfortune, was in Washington DC this week trying, like so many minor British celebrities before her, to catch the eye of the Americans. At the Heritage Foundation, a rightwing thinktank that hosted the launch of Trussas book Ten Years to Save the West, she came bearing a awarninga.

The US supreme court heard one of the most sadistic, extreme anti-abortion cases yet | Moira Donegan
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 10:01:22 GMT
From https:

Idahoas law requires doctors to treat pregnant womenas health as disposable a and the loss of their lives as an acceptable risk

The risk of stating plainly what Idaho argued at the US supreme court on Wednesday morning is that it is so sadistic and extreme that people might not believe you. Idaho has one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the country. Prohibiting all abortions at any stage of gestation, with no exceptions for rape or incest, the Idaho law allows doctors to perform abortions in cases where the life a but not amerelya the health a of the pregnant woman is at risk.

In practice, this has wound up being a ban on abortions needed to save womenas lives: according to Idaho hospitals, six pregnant women experiencing medical emergencies have had to be airlifted across state lines to hospitals in states with life and health exemptions in the months since Idaho began enforcing its abortion ban. One way to describe this state of affairs is to say that Idahoas abortion law has come into conflict with medical best practice. Another way to describe it is to say that the law has forced pregnant women to flee the state for their lives.

Smacking a child is just an act of violence. Why do England and Northern Ireland still allow it? | Frances Ryan
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 06:00:19 GMT
From https:

It is perverse that adults are legally protected from violence, yet striking a child can be defended. Calls for a ban are getting louder

When a child is scared of their parents, they can spend a long time plucking up the courage to talk. I learned this during a decade of volunteering as a Childline counsellor. There is a 20-second period, in between saying your name and waiting for them to share theirs, that is the most silent the air can ever be. You could hear a pin drop or just a calleras breath echoing on the receiver. In that moment, a young girl who has been slapped by her father is deciding whether to ask for help or to hang up and try again to form the words in a week or two.

I thought of this silence as I read calls from leading doctors to ban parents from smacking their children in England and Northern Ireland. Unlike in Scotland and Wales a where over the past four years the Victorian-era law that allows it has been overturned a it is still legal for a parent or carer to hit, smack or slap their child if it is a areasonablea punishment.

Why we need to stop using apro-Palestinea and apro-Israela | Judith Levine
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 10:13:22 GMT
From https:

The safety and security of Palestinians and Jews are interdependent, so we should use language carefully

In reporting on the encampments springing up on college campuses across the US, the media seem to have convened a terminology confab and agreed on two descriptions: apro-Palestiniana and aanti-Israela. These labels oversimplify Americansa opinions on Israelas onslaught against Gaza, which marked its 200th day on Tuesday with no end in sight. But the error is worse than semantic.

aUniversities Struggle as Pro-Palestinian Demonstrations Grow,a says the New York Times. aColleges Struggle to Contain Intensifying Pro-Palestinian Protests,a reports the Wall Street Journal. In Minneapolis, the Star Tribune has the local news that the aUniversity of Minnesota police arrest 9 after pro-Palestinian encampment set up on campusa. Some publications less shy about displaying their political biases take the opposite tack. A headline in the right-leaning New York Post, for instance, exaggerated the literally incendiary nature of the demonstratorsa tactics: aAnti-Israel protesters carry flares to March on NYPD HQ after 130 arrested at NYU.a The accompanying video is cast in red. Ever evenhanded, CBS does both: aPro-Palestinian, pro-Israel protesters gather outside Columbia University.a

From https:

The late elder statesman understood the need for a progressive realignment of British politics. That prize shouldnat be lost

David Marquand and Frank Field, both of whom died this week, never sat on the Labour benches together. The professor of politics and the long-serving backbench MP had very different temperaments too, one searchingly academic, the other a bold moraliser. They also disagreed about many of the big issues in British politics, the European Union above all.

But they also had some hugely important things in common. Both started as free-thinking Labour MPs a Marquand in 1966 and Field in 1979. Both possessed a rare degree of intellectual and spiritual hinterland. Both then went on lifetime political journeys. These took them increasingly away from Labour, though they always remained in Labouras orbit.

Ministers of Germany, Brazil, South Africa and Spain: why we need a global tax on billionaires

From https:

Finance chiefs say higher taxes for the super-rich are key to battling global inequality and climate crisis

When the governors of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund convened for the spring meetings last week, it was all about the really big questions. What can the international community do to accelerate decarbonisation and fight climate change? How can highly indebted countries retain fiscal space to invest in poverty eradication, social services and global public goods? What does the international community need to do to get back on track towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? How can multilateral development banks be strengthened to support these ambitions?

There is one issue that makes addressing these global challenges much harder: inequality. While the disparity between the richest and poorest countries has slightly narrowed, the gap remains alarmingly high. Moreover, in the past two decades, we have witnessed a significant increase in inequalities within most countries, with the income gap between the top 10% and the bottom 50% nearly doubling. Looking ahead, current global economic trends pose serious threats to progress towards higher equality.

Udogieas absence could hurt Spurs in defence and attack against Arsenal | Ben McAleer

Full-back has been key in Postecoglouas system but is out for the season a while Pedro Porro could also miss Sundayas derby

By Ben McAleer for WhoScored

When it was confirmed over the weekend that Destiny Udogie would sit out the rest of the season, Tottenham supporters were understandably devastated. The Italian has enjoyed a whirlwind debut campaign at Spurs following his loan spell with Udinese last season, consolidating a first-team spot and becoming a key player for Ange Postecoglouas side.

Yes, the form has dipped in recent weeks, though that may be symptomatic of a wider problem with Spurs, but he had nailed down the starting left-back role. In short, to lose Udogie with matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City looming is a disaster. Much of that is down to how Spurs play. With the full-backs granted license to push forwards, the Italian helps to bulk out the midfield, granting his attacking teammates freedom to hurt opponents.

FTSE 100 hits another record, as buyout offer for Anglo American increases worries about an exodus from London

BHPas proposal to buy Anglo American is a amonstera deal, says analyst Neil Wilson of Markets.com.

He explains:

Anglo shares jumped 11% at the open. Anglo has not had a great year a the rally this morning has erased the losses of the last 12 months, just. Itas got the assets but is not maybe doing as well as it might; in December the company downgraded its production targets. BHP clearly wants the copper assets a itas not long after buying Oz Minerals.

Clearly, competition authorities would take note due to the position in copper a combined company would have. South African platinum and iron ore assets would be spun off, which could be politically sensitive. If BHP doesnat make it work, others may try. Shares trade at APS24.80, a little shy of the APS25.08 implied by the offer a not much discount, suggesting itas a) being treated seriously and b) could go higher.

The biggest headline-grabber today is news that BHP has made a buyout approach for Anglo American. Angloas exposure to copper compared to other listed miners is core area of BHPas focus, as it looks to benefit from the material as the energy transition gathers pace.

At the same time, BHP is looking to make hay while the sun shines on the gold price, but a deal of this magnitude does little to reassure investors itas prioritising cost targets. BHP is also taking advantage of Angloas more recent weakness, which has seen it review its assets and write down their value. Should the deal go ahead, it would interrupt the long-term potential for Anglo investors, at a time when a turnaround is likely.

Ukraine war briefing: Long-range Atacms already hitting Russian forces

Joe Biden gave missiles to Ukraine under prior funding, after the US reportedly warned Russia against using long-range missiles in Ukraine. What we know on day 792

Atacms long-ranges missiles capable of hitting targets 300km away had already arrived in Ukraine this month at the presidentas direction, before the US security package was passed by Congress on Wednesday, the state department has said. Vedant Patel, a state department spokesperson, explained that the weapons were part of a March aid package for Ukraine a not the one just approved by Congress and signed by Joe Biden. aWe did not announce this at the onset in order to maintain operational security for Ukraine at their request.a

Ukraine has begun using the long-range Atacms, bombing a Russian military airfield in Crimea last week and Russian forces in another occupied area in recent days, two US officials have told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. One of them said the Biden administration previously warned Russia that if it used long-range ballistic missiles in Ukraine, Washington would provide the same capability to the Ukrainians. Russia has since done so.

Separately, Adm Christopher Grady, vice-chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, told the Associated Press that long-range weapons would help Ukraine take out Russian logistics and troop concentrations behind the frontlines. He explained how the decision to supply them was considered carefully and at length. aI think the time is right, and the boss [Biden] made the decision the time is right to provide these based on where the fight is right now.a

Ukraineas foreign minister has praised US politicians for approving the long-delayed $61bn military aid package for Ukraine, but said western allies needed to recognise that athe era of peace in Europe is overa and that Kyiv would inevitably need more help to fight off Russia, Dan Sabbagh and Luke Harding write from Kyiv.

Ukraine has stopped issuing new passports at offices abroad to some military-aged male citizens, according to legislation published on Wednesday, as part of measures to push them to return home amid manpower shortages in the army. The announcement came a day after the suspension of consular services for men aged 18 to 60 living abroad until the new law on mobilisation is implemented.

Tomorrowas Freedom review a does this man know the way to peace in Israel and Palestine?
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2024 08:00:19 GMT
From https:

Sombre documentary focuses on the former Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, and how he is becoming a Mandela-like figure since his imprisonment in 2002

Here is a film that offers something not generally on offer in the media: an envisioning of the future and a road map, or part of a road map, out of the present situation in Israel and Palestine. Itas about Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, an initial supporter of the 1993 and 1995 Oslo peace accords who became progressively disillusioned with the slow choreography of international consensus, and was ultimately imprisoned in 2002 for authorising deadly attacks on Israel. Barghoutias position is not that he is innocent, but that an Israeli court has no right to try him.

During the long years since, he has gone on hunger strike, been beaten and abused in captivity; his grownup children have themselves been targeted and arrested and his wife Fadwa has been repeatedly refused permission to visit him. But the film shows that something else has been happening as well: the Mandela-isation of Barghouti, a process which the Israeli forces themselves may well come to see as convenient, when in some future time they need an internationally accepted figure with whom to negotiate.

Jailed since the first intifada, Abu Srour charts a deeply personal journey through the conflict that has defined his life

Attempts to end the violence inGaza have focused on the exchange of Israeli hostages taken by Hamas on 7 October for Palestinians held in Israeli prisons. One of the many Palestinians is Nasser Abu Srour, who has been incarcerated since 1993 for his alleged involvement in the death of an Israeli intelligence officer during the first intifada. Thisisthe fourth time the prospect offreedom has been raised, the past three ending in disappointment, even when his release was part of a 2013 peace process pledge brokered by the Obamaadministration.

Thereas Still Tomorrow review a resoundingly sentimental drama in postwar Rome

From https:

Paola Cortellesias directing debut, in which she also stars, depicts gruelling domestic abuse before finding its way to startling redemption

Italian actor and singer Paola Cortellesi has been breaking hearts and box office records on her home turf with this directing debut. Itas a richly and even outrageously sentimental working-class drama of postwar Rome, a story of domestic abuse whose heroine finally escapes from misogyny and cruelty through a piece of narrative sleight-of-hand that borders on magic-neorealism, performed with shameless theatrical flair and marvellously composed in luminous monochrome. The film pays homage to early pictures by De Sica and Fellini, and Cortellesias own performance is consciously in the spirit of movie divas such as Anna Magnani, Sophia Loren and Giulietta Masina.

The scene is Rome just after the end of the second world war, when American GIs were a presence on the streets and Italian women had just been given the right to vote a though exercising it while under the baleful eye of the filmas misogynist menfolk is another matter. Cortellesi plays Delia, a woman who is being regularly beaten by her brutish husband Ivano (Valerio Mastandrea). He makes her slave around the house, skivvy to his cantankerous bedridden father (great stuff from veteran comic turn Giorgio Colangeli), and do odd jobs around the city, the cash payment for which she has to hand over at the end of every day. Their teenage daughter Marcella (Romana Maggiora Vergano), who sees how her mother is being brutalised and humiliated, is made to sleep in the same bedroom as her two brattish kid brothers, and when she receives a proposal of marriage from a well-off local boy, she, like her parents, is thrilled a at first.

Ministers of Germany, Brazil, South Africa and Spain: why we need a global tax on billionaires

From https:

Finance chiefs say higher taxes for the super-rich are key to battling global inequality and climate crisis

When the governors of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund convened for the spring meetings last week, it was all about the really big questions. What can the international community do to accelerate decarbonisation and fight climate change? How can highly indebted countries retain fiscal space to invest in poverty eradication, social services and global public goods? What does the international community need to do to get back on track towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? How can multilateral development banks be strengthened to support these ambitions?

There is one issue that makes addressing these global challenges much harder: inequality. While the disparity between the richest and poorest countries has slightly narrowed, the gap remains alarmingly high. Moreover, in the past two decades, we have witnessed a significant increase in inequalities within most countries, with the income gap between the top 10% and the bottom 50% nearly doubling. Looking ahead, current global economic trends pose serious threats to progress towards higher equality.

Ukraine war briefing: Long-range Atacms already hitting Russian forces

Joe Biden gave missiles to Ukraine under prior funding, after the US reportedly warned Russia against using long-range missiles in Ukraine. What we know on day 792

Atacms long-ranges missiles capable of hitting targets 300km away had already arrived in Ukraine this month at the presidentas direction, before the US security package was passed by Congress on Wednesday, the state department has said. Vedant Patel, a state department spokesperson, explained that the weapons were part of a March aid package for Ukraine a not the one just approved by Congress and signed by Joe Biden. aWe did not announce this at the onset in order to maintain operational security for Ukraine at their request.a

Ukraine has begun using the long-range Atacms, bombing a Russian military airfield in Crimea last week and Russian forces in another occupied area in recent days, two US officials have told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. One of them said the Biden administration previously warned Russia that if it used long-range ballistic missiles in Ukraine, Washington would provide the same capability to the Ukrainians. Russia has since done so.

Separately, Adm Christopher Grady, vice-chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, told the Associated Press that long-range weapons would help Ukraine take out Russian logistics and troop concentrations behind the frontlines. He explained how the decision to supply them was considered carefully and at length. aI think the time is right, and the boss [Biden] made the decision the time is right to provide these based on where the fight is right now.a

Ukraineas foreign minister has praised US politicians for approving the long-delayed $61bn military aid package for Ukraine, but said western allies needed to recognise that athe era of peace in Europe is overa and that Kyiv would inevitably need more help to fight off Russia, Dan Sabbagh and Luke Harding write from Kyiv.

Ukraine has stopped issuing new passports at offices abroad to some military-aged male citizens, according to legislation published on Wednesday, as part of measures to push them to return home amid manpower shortages in the army. The announcement came a day after the suspension of consular services for men aged 18 to 60 living abroad until the new law on mobilisation is implemented. Ukraineas foreign ministry said the passport suspension applied only to new applications and that any requests previously submitted would be honoured.

In Warsaw, Poland, hundreds of Ukrainians crowded outside a closed passport office in a confused scene. There was anger among those who felt they were being unfairly targeted. aThis is a fight against people who are fleeing the army,a said Maksym, a 38-year-old truck driver. aWe are not asked on what grounds we went abroad a| Why am I a draft dodger if I went abroad legally?a Ukraineas ambassador to Poland, Vasyl Zvarych, told AFP that aall applications submitted to the consular offices of Ukraine before April 23 a| will be processed in full and passport documents will be issued to such peoplea.

Ukraineas president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said a group of Ukrainian children were ain Qatar for medical, mental, and social recoverya, after Russia claimed an exchange of displaced children was taking place. aAll of them had previously been forcibly deported to Russia, but thanks to our friendly Qataras mediation efforts, they have been released,a said Zelenskiy, without addressing Russiaas claim that 48 children were involved in an exchange.

FTSE 100 hits another record, as buyout offer for Anglo American increases worries about an exodus from London

BHPas proposal to buy Anglo American is a amonstera deal, says analyst Neil Wilson of Markets.com.

He explains:

Anglo shares jumped 11% at the open. Anglo has not had a great year a the rally this morning has erased the losses of the last 12 months, just. Itas got the assets but is not maybe doing as well as it might; in December the company downgraded its production targets. BHP clearly wants the copper assets a itas not long after buying Oz Minerals.

Clearly, competition authorities would take note due to the position in copper a combined company would have. South African platinum and iron ore assets would be spun off, which could be politically sensitive. If BHP doesnat make it work, others may try. Shares trade at APS24.80, a little shy of the APS25.08 implied by the offer a not much discount, suggesting itas a) being treated seriously and b) could go higher.

The biggest headline-grabber today is news that BHP has made a buyout approach for Anglo American. Angloas exposure to copper compared to other listed miners is core area of BHPas focus, as it looks to benefit from the material as the energy transition gathers pace.

At the same time, BHP is looking to make hay while the sun shines on the gold price, but a deal of this magnitude does little to reassure investors itas prioritising cost targets. BHP is also taking advantage of Angloas more recent weakness, which has seen it review its assets and write down their value. Should the deal go ahead, it would interrupt the long-term potential for Anglo investors, at a time when a turnaround is likely.

Sombre documentary focuses on the former Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, and how he is becoming a Mandela-like figure since his imprisonment in 2002

Here is a film that offers something not generally on offer in the media: an envisioning of the future and a road map, or part of a road map, out of the present situation in Israel and Palestine. Itas about Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, an initial supporter of the 1993 and 1995 Oslo peace accords who became progressively disillusioned with the slow choreography of international consensus, and was ultimately imprisoned in 2002 for authorising deadly attacks on Israel. Barghoutias position is not that he is innocent, but that an Israeli court has no right to try him.

During the long years since, he has gone on hunger strike, been beaten and abused in captivity; his grownup children have themselves been targeted and arrested and his wife Fadwa has been repeatedly refused permission to visit him. But the film shows that something else has been happening as well: the Mandela-isation of Barghouti, a process which the Israeli forces themselves may well come to see as convenient, when in some future time they need an internationally accepted figure with whom to negotiate.

Uncle Vanya review a Steve Carell leads excellent cast in Chekhov reimagining

Vivian Beaumont Theater, New York

The star makes a convincing Broadway debut in a tragicomic winner staged with thought and deft flashes of modernity

As with Appropriate, another outstanding, claustrophobic family drama directed by Lila Neugebauer on Broadway this season, the new Broadway revival of Uncle Vanya, now playing at Lincoln Center, plays to the sound of oppressive heat. The trill of crickets, the buzz of cicadas a from the first minute, the setting is effectively muggy, at once nostalgic and portentous. (Mikhail Fiksel and Beth Lake did the sound design.) Itas the country, and the characters of Anton Chekhovas pastoral drama of discontents wear the bucolic setting uncomfortably. In this adaptation of the 1898 play by the playwright and translator Heidi Schreck, one recalls another, more recent time of entrapment with a motley crew of relatives and friends, itchy for escape, or something more.

Chief among the grumbles is Uncle Vanya, the manager of a country estate capably played by Steve Carell in his Broadway debut. Carell, primarily known for his comic roles, leans into the bathos of a middle-aged manas petty grievances and dyspeptic musings; his Vanya has a mischievous wink to his digs and precise comic timing, particularly when itas at the expense of Professor Alexander (Alfred Molina, also quite funny as an out-of-touch narcissist in ill health). The Professor and his much younger, beautiful wife Elena (Anika Noni Rose) have lived off the estateas profits in the city (formerly Moscow, but not named here) for years, but have returned for an indefinite convalescence, upending everyoneas fragile contentment a that of Vanya, who is in love with Elena and bored to tears; Elena, who is also bored to tears; provincial Dr Astrov (The Good Placeas William Jackson Harper, a standout in this celebrity cast), who is also in love with Elena; and Sonia (Alison Pill), who is hopelessly in love with Astrov.

And They Lived a| Ever After is a south Asian book of reworked European classics written by women with disabilities

A deaf Snow White, a blind Cinderella, a neurodivergent ugly duckling and a wheelchair-using Rapunzel: classic European fairytales have been reimagined in a new anthropology of stories written by south Asian women with disabilities.

aWhen disabled people donat see themselves in the world, it tells us that we donat deserve to exist, that these stories are not for us, that stories of love and friendship are not for us, and certainly not happy endings,a says Nidhi Ashok Goyal, the founder of Rising Flame, a feminist disability rights group that has produced the book, called And They Lived a| Ever After.

aI canat. There is no ramp from the room to the garden.a

aWe will find a way. I can carry you down,a says the prince.
