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...

'It haunts your life': California's legacy of police violence against Native American women
Amid a reckoning over police brutality against Black Americans, Native women are speaking out about their experiencesKelly started teaching each of her seven children about the police around the time they entered middle school and began venturing outside on their own in their hometown of San Jose, California.“Make sure you just, ‘yes sir, no sir,’ hands where they can see them,” she’d tell them. “Don’t get smart, don’t talk back, just do the best you can to just walk away.” 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...

Kate Garraway's Injury At The Hands Of A Rogue Contact Lens Sounds Horrible, But Oh So Relatable
We don’t know about you, but when it comes to eyes and people talking about things getting stuck in them, it sets our teeth on edge. Which is why Friday’s Good Morning Britain proved to be an uncomfortable watch, as Kate Garraway discussed an injury she recently suffered at the hands of a rogue contact lens. The presenter said she was left “embarrassed” after a doctor removed a six-day-old lens from her eye that had become stuck.Kate explained that it happened after she’d forgotten to take them out one night, which to be fair, most of us who wear them have done at one point or another. Speaking about her trip to the doctors on GMB, Kate said: “A team of eye nurses were baffled, absolutely baffled. Then eventually, after having drops, they found it was actually a contact lens stuck in my eye that’s been in there for about six days.“I felt embarrassed – I thought I had taken it out, but there was a bit still in there – just by root cause untidiness.“Kate’s diagnosis came after she appeared on the ITV breakfast show wearing glasses, admitting she was having trouble reading the morning news, describing it was “a bit of a lottery” as to what she could see. She said: “Let’s have a look at the front pages now, if, that is, I can see them. If you haven’t noticed [the glasses] ... I’ve injured my eye.“I don’t know what I’ve done to it, but I’m going to get it checked out today. But it means it’s all a bit of a lottery at the moment as to whether I can read anything.”During Friday’s show, Kate also revealed it had been a “tough week” for her husband Derek Draper, who has been in hospital since March after contracting coronavirus. While Derek, who is a former lobbyist and political adviser, no longer has Covid-19, he still remains seriously ill in an induced coma.However, he has shown signs of consciousness in recent weeks, even occasionally opening his eyes. Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV. READ MORE: 'It's A Tough Day': Kate Garraway Discusses Not Being Able To See Husband Derek On Wedding Anniversary Kate Garraway Fights Back Tears As She Discusses Challenges Of Marking Husband's Birthday Kate Garraway Discusses 'Difficulties' Of Returning To Work While Her Husband Remains In Hospital
