Greenland is off the market – but which other islands or towns could Donald Trump buy?
From Chilean isles to whole Italian villages, it is possible to purchase a lot of property in a hurry, even for non-billionairesIt’s been a while since the United States went around buying up bits of the world, and with US president Donald Trump’s ambition to own Greenland seemingly thwarted, there are some alternative purchases that a discerning buyer might consider if they want to obtain a lot of land in a hurry.There are opportunities to be had in South America. Chile’s Guafo island is on the market for $20m (£16.5m). The uninhabited 50,000-acre island comes complete with colonies of sea lions and penguins. The only downside is you have to share a little bit of it with the Chilean navy, which has a weather station there. If that island isn’t big enough for you, you could look at Traiguen island, also in Chile – a relative bargain at $25m for 100,000 acres. Size-wise, both might struggle to compete with Greenland – the world’s largest island – but on the other hand, they aren’t 80% covered in ice, which is a distinct advantage. Continue reading...

Boats and beach huts: a family holiday on Denmark’s Ærø island
A Danish camping break … with three generations under canvas. It may not sound fun but this picturesque island makes it a memorable escape from ‘reality’There’s a thrill attached to going somewhere by boat. An expanse of open water separates “real life” from ice-cream-for-breakfast holiday mode, offering a much-needed mental and physical distance from the daily grind. Boarding a ferry from the mainland to a small island famed for its beer and beach huts makes for an even greater thrill. Our destination was Ærø, a picturesque island off the south-east coast of Denmark with a population of around 6,000. It is a popular wedding destination and, since 2015, it’s had another attraction, too.On top of the sands at Ærø’s Vesterstrand beach is the yellow beach hut from the cover of my book, The Year of Living Danishly – first spotted when friends visited years ago and sent back a slew of photos. The book was a surprise bestseller and the hut became popular – prompting the owner to get in touch and readers to start sending their own hut pics. Continue reading...

Justin Trudeau: the rise and fall of a political brand
Thanks to his clever use of social media, he was dubbed the first prime minister of the Instagram age – but after four years in power, cracks in his image have started to show. By Ashifa KassamOn the last night of March 2012, Justin Trudeau climbed into a boxing ring in downtown Ottawa, the Canadian capital, intent on rescuing his public image. He was clad in a lustrous red robe, the colour of the Liberal party, for which he was then a junior member of parliament. In the opposite corner, wearing Tory blue, was a young aboriginal leader and Conservative senator named Patrick Brazeau, who is a former navy reservist and a second-degree black belt in karate. Bookies had given the lanky Trudeau, a former high school teacher, three-to-one odds against.The televised match was ostensibly a fundraiser for cancer research, but in Ottawa it became a sensation – a display of partisan pageantry rarely seen in the staid world of Canadian politics, where “bland works” had been the watchword of one long-serving provincial premier. The fight’s symbolism was lost on no one: in recent years, the Conservatives had battered the Liberals, turning a narrow lead in the 2006 election into a majority government by 2011. The Liberal party, which had governed Canada for much of the 20th century, had been reduced to a historically low number of seats. Continue reading...

I want Tesco's packaging overhaul to plug into a new national framework | Dave Lewis
CEO says retailer has recycling targets for itself and its suppliers but wider collaboration is neededTesco promises to ban brands that use excessive packagingIt’s almost two years since the television series Blue Planet II ignited a long overdue debate which captured the nation’s attention, pricked our collective conscience and brought a focus to tackling the problem of plastic. The proliferation of plastic in society remains a challenge, and something everyone involved in the consumer goods industry must tackle. But plastic is part of a bigger packaging conundrum, one that we need to address in full.And as we move into the second phase of our packaging plan, that’s what we are trying to do.

My best shot: Rena Effendi on haymaking in Transylvania
‘The light was soft … They were so graceful. They are the last peasants, the last of their kind’In 2012, I travelled to Transylvania to document what is effectively the last remaining bucolic landscape of Europe. England, for example, has lost most of its hay meadows because of large-scale agriculture, but in Romania this kind of small-scale sustainable way of farming persists. It survived the Ceaușescu regime. It survived the EU. Today, however, it is a vanishing way of life as young people increasingly choose to migrate to western Europe in search of work and faster money. I spent three weeks in Maramureş in the northern Carpathian mountains, exploring life in six tiny hamlets, each with no more than 500 inhabitants. It was August, the height of the haymaking season. Families worked in the fields from dawn to dusk. These women were from a village called Breb. I saw their haystacks from the road as my translator and I drove past. I shouted “stop!” and ran out of the car towards them. They smiled at me, but we didn’t talk, they just carried on with what they were doing. It was late in the day, and they were getting ready to go home. The women wear trousers to make hay because the wind blows their skirts up. Here, they were putting their headscarves and their traditional skirts back on. Then they gathered their baskets, in which they’d brought their lunch, and walked back to the village. I followed. The light was very soft, and the shadows long.Cutting hay and stacking it is physically demanding, I tried doing it myself and failed miserably Continue reading...

Far-right violence is on the rise. Where is the outrage? | Owen Jones
Politicians and media outlets seem happy to fuel the hate-filled ideologies of a once-despised and tiny minorityMohammed Saleem was murdered by a terrorist, and yet you’ve probably never even heard of him. It was April 2013, and the 82-year-old was walking home from evening prayers at a mosque in Small Heath, Birmingham. A Ukrainian neo-Nazi terrorist – who had bombed three mosques – stabbed him three times from behind. “He was a very beautiful, educated man who empowered all of his five daughters – and his sons as well – to pursue education, and loved and appreciated everything Britain gave him,” says Maz Saleem, his daughter. “I’ve spent six years tirelessly campaigning for him to be recognised in a mainstream platform.”(July 22, 2011)  Utøya island and in Oslo, Norway Continue reading...

Python wars: the snake epidemic eating away at Florida
There are tens of thousands of pythons in the Florida wild, attacking animals and damaging ecosystems – and the quest to stop them has become a collective crusadeOn a Thursday afternoon in St Petersburg, Florida, Beth Koehler crouches over a cairn terrier named Ginger, trimming intently as fur collects around her feet. On Koehler’s arm is a scratch – red, jagged and freshly acquired, though not in the way one might expect of a dog groomer.“There was no way I could pin the head,” Koehler says, referring to the snake that was partly responsible. She had grabbed hold however she could, which made it “pissed”: “It decided to coil up and just throw itself at me.” Startled, Koehler had fallen backwards, cutting herself on a vine – an injury far preferable to the bite of a Burmese python.

The mystery of the influencer and the Instagrammed motorcycle accident
Photos of Tiffany Mitchell’s accident were suspiciously beautiful, and even showed an artfully positioned water bottleTiffany Mitchell, a Nashville-based influencer, was riding her motorcycle when she misjudged a curve and went off the road. Motorcycle accidents are rarely pretty, but this one was beautiful. By incredible luck the only injuries Mitchell appeared to sustain were aesthetically-pleasing grease smudges on her arm. A handsome man was on hand to tend to Mitchell and the entire scene was bathed in soft light, captured on camera and posted on Instagram.When Mitchell first documented her accident, on 31 July, her followers were largely sympathetic. But then doubt started to set in. Why were Mitchell’s injuries so minor? Why had her helmet been removed straightaway when protocol dictates that, in most circumstances, it should stay on? Why had everything been professionally photographed? And, most suspiciously, why was there an artfully positioned bottle of Smartwater in one of the photographs? Was this horrible accident actually a deliberately staged advert? Continue reading...

The murky life and death of Robert Maxwell – and how it shaped his daughter Ghislaine
Was it murder? Suicide? Or just an accident? Almost 30 years before Jeffrey Epstein’s demise, Ghislaine Maxwell was caught up in another shocking and scandal-ridden mysteryAt one time, everyone knew where to find Ghislaine Maxwell. The former aide-de-camp of the disgraced, now deceased, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was a fixture in Manhattan’s most fashionable salons. With an impressive list of contacts, including Prince Andrew and Chelsea Clinton, she was a regular at fundraisers, book launches and society weddings.The last place anyone would have expected to see her was a Los Angeles shopping mall, where the 57-year-old was photographed in a burger joint last week, just days after Epstein’s suicide in a New York jail, where he was being held on charges of sex trafficking underage girls.

Art, aura and the doomed search for the perfect selfie | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett
The cultural critic, Walter Benjamin, would not have approved of the modern way of viewing a Van Gogh or a Da VinciI went to the final day of the Van Gogh exhibition at Tate Britain. It was completely sold out – Van Gogh is about as blockbuster as a show gets. Yet what I found myself gawping at was not the art, but the vast numbers of people crowded around the paintings, looking at the art only through the medium of their phone screens.Visitors jostled for advantage on the approach to the most famous paintings, snapped the canvas (or had their photo snapped in front of it) and swiftly moved on. I watched this happen over and over again, bemused and a little bit baffled. Meanwhile, visitors to the Mona Lisa at the Louvre in Paris have complained that they are given barely a minute with the painting before being obliged to shift, despite queuing for hours. If you’ve been, you’ll know this modestly sized Da Vinci is constantly surrounded by a vast ring of tourist paparazzi. Again, no one’s really looking. Or at least, not in the way people used to.
