‘It was bigger than Cosby’: W Kamau Bell on reckoning with an icon’s fall
In the docuseries We Need to Talk About Cosby, the comic and TV host examines how a once-loved comedy star fell from grace,and the system that supported himWhen word reached W Kamau Bell that Bill Cosby was home from prison, the United Shades of America host could have torn at his trademark salt-and-pepper afro.Bell was in Philadelphia, Cosby’s home town, wrapping up interviews for a documentary project on the legendary comedian when Pennsylvania’s highest court tossed out the 84-year-old’s 2018 aggravated indecent assault conviction. The surprise ruling, which came just two years into a decade-long sentence, didn’t just have Bell reconsidering the premise of his film; it left him wondering whether he even had a film at all. “It felt like we could have this conversation because the arc of Bill Cosby’s life is concluded,” Bell said to the Guardian. “So when he got out, it’s like if the premise is ‘now that Bill Cosby’s in prison, we can have this conversation,’ what does it mean now that he’s out of prison? Can we still have the conversation?” Continue reading...

Questioning, observing, acting and responding - it’s a compelling insight into everyday views on climate change.The gallery was put together at Blipfoto by Rebecca Cole and Richard Hunt-Smith.

Here’s how Republicans ‘dismembered’ a Democratic stronghold
Scroll through our visual guide to see why proposed Tennessee maps amount to a masterclass in gerrymanderingRepublican lawmakers in Tennessee gave final approval on Monday to an aggressive plan to split Nashville, a Democratic bastion, in a deeply Republican state, into several congressional districts as part of an effort to tilt the state’s congressional map in their favor. The plan is now waiting for approval from Governor Bill Lee, who is likely to sign it. Nashville currently sits in the state’s fifth congressional district, represented by Jim Cooper, a Democrat who has held the seat for nearly 20 years. It’s a solid Democratic district - Joe Biden carried it by nearly 24 points in 2020 - but on Tuesday, Cooper announced he was retiring from Congress. Continue reading...

BW Legal is chasing a debt I don’t owe at an address where I’ve never lived
It is over an unpaid energy bill from E.ON but I am not a customerI am being chased by a debt collection company, BW Legal, for an unpaid energy bill from E.ON despite never having been a customer and having no connection with the property in question. BW Legal required me to prove I had left the address, which was impossible as I never lived there. I sent an energy bill for my actual address, and a screenshot of my electoral roll address history, but have had no reply.AD, BrightonYou wrote in response to an Observer report on the same issue. BW Legal represents PRAC Financial, which bought customer debts in the name of “The Occupier” from E.ON. It suggested that malice may be behind my follow-up investigation, and said it appreciated my interest in the matter, but didn’t see any basis for my inquiries. Although it only removed you from its records after my intervention, it justified linking you to the address by pointing out that the evidence you provided showed you lived in the same square – albeit in a different part with a different postcode.

M&M’s have had a ‘progressive’ makeover – could this be feminism’s sweetest victory? | Arwa Mahdawi
The chocolate characters are getting new footwear to promote inclusivity. And conservative pundits are furiousNo doubt I speak for every woman on Earth when I say this: thank you, Mars! When I was a little girl I felt as if I could never be my authentic self because of the way the green M&M mascot used to dress. Every time I saw her tottering around in advertisements wearing white go-go boots and fluttering her long eyelashes, a little part of me would die inside. Although young, I recognised something profound: women would only be free when multinationals allowed anthropomorphised chocolate to wear sensible shoes.At long last, that time has come. Last week, Mars Wrigley, the international purveyor of sugary goods, announced that it was revamping (or, rather, de-vamping) its six M&M characters to promote inclusivity. Most notably: the green one is switching out boots for trainers and the brown one is swapping stilettos for kitten heels. It is kind of questionable that they are still forcing the brown one into heels of any kind if you ask me. Nevertheless, it is still a massive step forward for feminism.Arwa Mahdawi is a Guardian columnist Continue reading...

By the time I left, at 18, I had been shunted between four foster homes and a residential care home, all across south-east London.I met my biological mum for the first time since entering care when I was about 10.

Days of wine and rosehips: my car-free break in Herefordshire
The market town of Ledbury is the picturesque starting point for a nature trek through a county for all seasonsMoreton-in-Marsh, Honeybourne, Evesham, Pershore … The names of the stations along the Cotswold Line railway are familiar as a nursery rhyme from childhood journeys. I grew up near Oxford, but it’s years since I last travelled west on this line and the distant hills have a blue, remembered air. The little River Evenlode meanders through sheep-dotted fields outside the train window before the wider Avon winds through plum and cherry trees. We cross the Severn among the spires and towers of Worcester and race under the Malverns to emerge near gnarled orchards, overgrown with mistletoe.Herefordshire is a county for all seasons: once the leaves have fallen, there are glowing church windows, local jams and chutneys, original museums. There are wintry walks to enjoy, before the orchards blossom again, and mulled cider by log fires in half-timbered pubs. All Herefordshire buses are free for everyone at weekends until (it’s hoped) August 2022, with extra services on Sundays. It’s a scheme aimed at encouraging sustainable trips to local towns. I hop on a bus into Ledbury from the railway station, passing cobbled alleys and striking timber-framed houses. “A little town of ancient grace,” the Ledbury-born poet laureate John Masefield called his home town.
