Trump’s Dow Jones rally no longer the best in history
The Trump rally has some competition. The gains in the Dow Jones industrial average since President Trump was elected, which had been by far the best in the past 50 years for any first term president at the six-, 12- and 18-month marks, are now just the second-best. Due to an almost 1 percent decline...

Laura Bates picks five books on how to achieve gender equality
From a novel about domestic violence to Nigeria’s queer women in their own words, these are empowering and inspiring worksThey say “don’t get mad, get even”. But what if we need to get mad first? What if we can’t begin to imagine equality until we’ve first been allowed to find an outlet for our long-silenced, unacknowledged, righteous fury? Rage Becomes Her, a love letter to women’s anger by Soraya Chemaly, gives women everywhere the permission to get mad as hell … and then to get even.It’s easy for those of us who have experienced gendered abuse to feel rage, but perhaps more difficult to spur the same passion in those without personal experience of the problem. So Meena Kandasamy’s searing Women’s Prize shortlisted When I Hit You is a timely and vital opportunity to expose readers to the crushing reality of domestic violence and the suffocating horror of a society that would rather see women suffer in silence than speak out.

Monday’s best TV: Inside the American Embassy; Britain’s Best Junior Doctors
A positive view of Brexit and Donald Trump from Britain’s US ambassador, while young doctors prove whether they actually have any medical knowledgeThe US ambassador to Britain, Robert Wood Johnson, has been friends with Donald Trump for 35 years. He is puzzled by what he regards as British negativity towards Brexit and feels that “the world is being reorganised in a way that really makes sense”. This series gains close access to the senior diplomat and, at the very least, proves a bracing reminder that for many people – including members of the British government – Trump is a creatively disruptive maverick rather than a grotesque proto-fascist.

Star attraction: Royal Observatory seeks volunteers to use new telescope
Cutting-edge telescope makes Greenwich a working observatory for the first time in 60 yearsPull on the right ropes and the dome at the Altazimuth pavilion at the Royal Observatory Greenwich swings around and opens up to reveal a thick band of London sky. The Victorian building is about to emerge from a major refurbishment and inside the dome sits the main attraction: a cutting-edge telescope that will make Greenwich a working observatory for the first time in 60 years.The installation of the Annie Maunder Astrographic Telescope (Amat) has staff at Greenwich palpably excited. Over the obligatory banging of builders at work, Brendan Owens and Tom Kerss, both astronomers at the site, admit that they have been working late, very late, to put the kit through its paces. If they are tired from being up all hours, they do not let it show. “It’s a little bit addictive,” Owens says. Continue reading...

Van Gogh leggings and Tracey teacups: how art tat broke out of the gift shop
Jackson Pollock socks, Louise Bourgeois eyemasks, Guerrilla Girls air freshener … what’s behind the explosion in art merchandise – and who’s really making the money?You could, if you were fanatical about such things, live your entire life kitted out in your favourite artists. You could wake up and remove your Louise Bourgeois eye mask, take a swig from your Damien Hirst coffee cup, then you check your Ai Weiwei-covered phone before pulling on your Van Gogh leggings. Tea sets, tote bags, dinner trays, model figures, swear boxes, snow globes and even room spray: artist merchandise has moved far beyond the kitsch of Mona Lisa tea towels. It’s now a burgeoning industry that straddles high art, high fashion and the high street.“Museum shops are getting bigger and more museums are getting shops,” says Victoria Hooper, head of copyright licensing at DACs, a not-for-profit organisation that negotiates royalties for artists whose work is reused. With arts organisations having their funding cut, she says, “everyone in the sector is looking at different ways to monetise”. Continue reading...

‘Calling it a cult is degrading’: Wild Wild Country’s Ma Anand Sheela on her time as Bhagwan’s​ ​lieutenant

Seven ways to strengthen your core
Keeping these muscles in good condition will help you fend off a bad back – just make sure you mix it upA strong core isn’t about having photogenic abs, looking good in swimwear or grinding out another deadlift. It is a key element in dozens of everyday movements, including simple things such as carrying your shopping or getting out of bed in the morning. Many people know that a weak core can lead to a bad back, but the benefits of strengthening it are sometimes underappreciated. An analysis of studies published between 1970 and 2011, for instance, found that “core stability exercise was better than general exercise for reducing pain” in chronic low back pain patients. Given that back pain affects 540 million people globally, just five or 10 minutes a few times a week spent improving core strength is an excellent investment. Continue reading...

Where’s Jeremy Corbyn? Lost in a rose-tinted vision of Labour’s past | John Harris
Labour must stop talking in terms of 1945 and all that, and engage with today’s big issues – Brexit foremost among themThe best politicians inspire, but part of their job is also to orientate: to survey an often confounding set of national circumstances, and tell us not just where we all are, but also what our position means and where we need to go next. A year on from that remarkable general election result, this is the challenge facing Jeremy Corbyn and the people at the top of the Labour party – a difficult but urgent task in increasingly trying times.Just over a week ago, I was among the 3,000 or so people who spent an overcast Saturday in north London, at the celebration of politics and music branded  Labour Live. Whatever its detractors claimed, it was a well-intentioned, creative event – but the sparse crowd and rather wearied atmosphere highlighted issues far beyond the organisers’ control.

Japan's airlines gave into 'Orwellian' demands from China — but how they did it could provide a blueprint for foreign companies everywhere
Tomohiro Ohsumi/Getty Images Japan's airlines recently bowed to political pressure from China to change how they describe Taiwan. But Japan Airlines and ANA only changed the descriptions on their Chinese-language sites, not their sites in Japanese, English, or other languages. This split approach could provide a roadmap for other foreign companies struggling to deal the threat of being blocked from the Chinese market for references to Taiwan. Japan's major airlines bowed to political pressure from China earlier this month, but how they did so could provide a roadmap for other foreign companies. Earlier this year Beijing began demanding that airlines stop listing self-ruled Taiwan as a country, and instead describe it as a province of China, which frequently tries to assert its claim to the island on the global stage. The incident involved letters sent to 44 foreign airlines. Governments got involved, and the White House even released a statement slamming the demand as "Orwellian nonsense."See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: This top economist has a radical plan to change the way Americans voteSee Also:China's largest social network has blocked all mentions of John Oliver after the talk-show host criticized Xi JinpingChina calls Trump's newest trade attack 'blackmail,' says US 'initiated a trade war'Kim Jong Un visits China for the third time, showing ties with Beijing are stronger than everSEE ALSO: China wants to dictate how foreign airlines refer to Taiwan and the US is having none of it — this is how every major airline is responding
