Breonna Taylor's family to speak after second night of protests for justice – US politics live
Taylor’s family to give first press conference since grand jury verdictArrests made as protesters took to streets in many major citiesTop Republicans dismiss Trump’s refusal to commit to peaceful transfer45,176 new US cases of Covid and 885 deaths reported yesterdaySign up for Fight to Vote – our weekly US election newsletter 11.17am BST Louisville Metro Police have confirmed to the Associated Press that at least 24 people were arrested in Louisville during the second night of protests over a grand jury’s decision not to indict police officers on criminal charges directly related to the death of Breonna Taylor.Among them, the Louisville Courier Journal reports, were high-profile Louisville Democratic state lawmaker Rep. Attica Scott and well-known Black activist Shameka Parrish-Wright. The paper says that Scott’s daughter, Ashanti Scott, was arrested alongside them. Olivia Krauth writes:All three are charged with first-degree rioting — a felony — along with failure to disperse and unlawful assembly, both misdemeanors.“The allegations are outrageous on their face,” said Ted Shouse, Parrish-Wright’s lawyer.If you arrest the loudest voices fighting racial injustice in Louisville, we have to believe you want to silence the fight against racial injustice. Let @atticascott4ky and @Seasoned4u out and get out of their way. 11.09am BST There were protests in many major US cities last night demanding justice for Breonna Taylor. Reporters for Associated Press spoke to people who were protesting in Kentucky. “We’ve got to take it lying down that the law won’t protect us, that they can get away with killing us,” said Lavel White, a regular protester in downtown Louisville who is Black. He was drawn to a march Thursday night because he was devastated by a grand jury’s decision a day earlier not to charge the officers. “If we can’t get justice for Breonna Taylor, can we get justice for anybody?” Continue reading...

'I'm extremely controversial': the psychologist rethinking human emotion
How we interpret our feelings depends on where and how we’re brought up, says professor Lisa Feldman Barrett - and not understanding this is making our lives harderIn early March, as the world began to realise that coronavirus wasn’t going to go quietly, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett was thousands of miles away from home. “I went to New Zealand because I was getting an honorary degree,” she tells me over the phone from lockdown in Newton, a leafy suburb of Boston, Massachusetts, where she runs a lab devoted to the study of emotions. She had arranged the trip to coincide with spring break so her college-age daughter could join her and see the sights. But as countries around the world began to impose restrictions, she started having second thoughts. “I was asking myself, should she really be coming, or should we be going home? Like, how serious is this exactly?” Her heart began to race as she weighed up the possibilities – and she found herself in a state someone else might label fear, panic even. Eventually she rang her husband, but instead of saying “I’m scared,” she blurted out: “I’m experiencing high arousal from uncertainty.”This is only an odd choice of words if you’re unfamiliar with the paradigm-busting ideas set out in her extraordinary 2018 book, How Emotions Are Made. For Barrett it’s simply the language that most closely reflects what science tells us about how and why we feel what we do. Her family have adapted. “My daughter will say, like many college students, ‘I’m really anxious’, and I’ll look at her and she’ll sigh, ‘OK Mom, I’m having uncertainty and I’m having high arousal.’ Or, ‘I’m really depressed.’ And I’ll be: ‘Are you depressed?’ and she’s like, ‘OK my body budget is out of whack and I’m feeling unpleasant. Are you happy now?’” Continue reading...

The meme-fication of US politics: two films reveal the faces behind the posts
Feels Good Man and TFW No GF trace the impact of Pepe the Frog, lonely men, and the far rightOn 13 October 2015, Donald Trump, who had recently announced his run for president, tweeted an image of himself standing at the presidential lectern, his face transmogrified into a green, smug-looking frog, known to certain corners of the internet as Pepe. With hindsight, this strange moment offers a stake in the ground, marking out the point when the meme was invited into mainstream political culture.This collapse of the virtual and the real seems to have only accelerated since then. Online phenomena are no longer cordoned off in their virtual barriers but regularly pass through the screen to play mischief in the so-called “real world”. Two recent documentaries attempt to explain how this all happened, from two very different perspectives. Continue reading...

Johnson should learn from Sturgeon and treat the public as a partner, not a problem | Stephen Reicher
Compliance is far better achieved by being seen to be on the side of the people rather than set against them Coronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageOn Tuesday, the four nations of the United Kingdom agreed a statement committing them in principle to a common strategy of “suppressing the virus to the lowest possible level and keeping it there”. But when Boris Johnson and Nicola Sturgeon stood before their respective parliaments that same day and announced the concrete measures they were introducing to stem spiralling infections the unified strategy was nowhere to be seen.Scotland announced a ban on any household visits while England continued to allow six people to mix indoors, even if they are all from different households. Sturgeon would have gone further than closing pubs an hour earlier, but felt she couldn’t without the financial power to protect businesses and employees. Continue reading...

'I got the bug': a pioneering wildfire fighter on the thrills and threats of the job
Sara Sweeney, the first woman to lead her unit, once couldn’t imagine fighting fires. Now she doesn’t want to stopSara Sweeney never planned on becoming a firefighter. The 21-year veteran of the US Forest Service is the woman to head her elite Arizona-based unit, and one of the few female leaders in a job that’s 96% male.Sweeney and her crew spend most of their year traveling to battle the country’s biggest blazes, most recently the Bobcat fire, which has torn through roughly 114,000 acres in southern California. But when she was growing up in Washington DC, wildland firefighting wasn’t exactly on her radar. Continue reading...
