In this debate over 'missing words', it's marginalised people who are most at risk | Finn Mackay
There is no campaign to remove terms like ‘breastfeeding’. Same-sex parents never had our own words to start withSome of our words are missing. Have you noticed? The Labour shadow health secretary, Wes Streeting, has, and he’s angry about it. Earlier this month he gave an impassioned interview for the BBC on Radio 4’s Political Thinking, raising the alarm about missing terms such as “breastfeeding” and “mother”, despite the fact that there is no campaign to remove these terms. Pope Francis has joined the chorus of discontent, warning of attacks on freedom of expression in the name of “cancel culture” and ideological colonisation. Of course, some of us never had our own words to start with. We’ve had to create our own or reclaim terms that have been used against us; we’ve had to find alternatives to the dehumanising language of state and medical institutions. Those of us who are lesbian or gay parents, mothers or fathers, have found new words to help others understand us and make our lives visible and valid: othermothers, gaybies, co-parents, daddy and pappa, MaPa, mummies and mummas. Not bad, considering we weren’t even allowed to exist a few years ago.Finn Mackay is the author of Female Masculinities and the Gender Wars and is a senior lecturer in sociology at the University of the West of England in Bristol Continue reading...

Energy crisis: where could Europe’s gas come from if Russia cuts exports?
Threat of war with Ukraine has led to fears of gas shortages in Europe, but there are alternative suppliesRising tensions on the Russia-Ukraine border have raised fears that Europe’s gas supply crisis could become far more serious. Gas market prices have already surpassed record highs and threaten to saddle European households with a cost of living crisis.Russia is Europe’s largest supplier of gas, of which a third flows through Ukraine’s gas pipelines to countries across the continent. Russian gas flows have been a quarter lower than usual over the past year, but European leaders now fear that a Russian invasion of Ukraine could spell an energy catastrophe if gas exports are cut.

Just in time: why we keep running out of everything – video
The global supply chain seems to be in a perpetual state of crisis. Whether it's groceries, petrol or microchips for electric vehicles, everything keeps running out. But why is it happening? The crux of the matter lies in the way our global supply chain works, and how companies have come to rely on a unique system of efficiency called 'just in time', developed in Japan in the late 1960s and early 70s. Josh Toussaint-Strauss explores how the prevalence of 'just in time' supply systems are contributing to a global supply chain crisis Continue reading...

Markets rattled as hawkish Fed signals US rate rises coming – business live
Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial newsIntroduction: Hawkish Jerome Powell rattles marketsUS Federal Reserve indicates increase in interest rates as inflation risesLast night: Powell signals March rate hike is comingAsian shares fall to lowest in 15 months after US Fed nails on March rate riseUK car production slumps to lowest level since 1956Tesla sees record profit as electric car deliveries soarDeutsche Bank’s US economists now expect the Fed to raise US interest rates five times this year, one more than their previous base case.Strategist Jim Reid explains:The biggest takeaway was the Chair’s emphasis that this cycle was different from the last round of tightening, in that inflation is well-above target, the labour market is historically tight, and growth projections remain above long-run potential.While the Chair demurred when asked what that specially meant for parameters of monetary policy, he did not rule out a faster pace of rate hikes or larger increments, adding that the Fed had plenty of room to tighten given the state of the labour market. We read Fed Chair Powell’s comment that this cycle is different from the previous one as an indication that the Fed’s bias is for a steeper tightening than the markets and we had envisaged.We have moved our call for this year to six 25bp hikes from four previously and now expect the fed funds target range at 2.25-2.50% at end-2023, 25bp higher than we had previously forecast.
