Stop making the menopause into a brand! It’s about healthcare, not money
Founder of midlife website Noon is delighted the subject is being talked about openly, but does not want to see it commercialisedThe menopause used to be the condition that dare not speak its name, the domain of elderly aunts whispering about “the change”. Now it’s impossible to escape the topic. A slew of celebrities from Davina McCall to Meg Mathews can’t stop talking about hot flushes, brain fog and vaginal atrophy and on Monday it is World Menopause Day.The cause even got royal backing recently, with Sophie, Countess of Wessex, patron of the charity Wellbeing of Women, talking about the fate of menopausal women in the workplace. “We are fabulous in our 40s and even more fabulous in our 50s, 60s and 70s,” she said. “We shouldn’t be made to slope off into the shadows.” Quite.

Nigel Slater’s recipes for onion pickle, stilton puffs and roast duck salad
Add piquancy to your supper with berries and picklesI want to tell you about a jar of pickle I made this week. Red onions, sliced thinly and marinated in red wine and malt vinegars, a little salt and sugar and a scattering of peppercorns, cloves and dried fruit. The result is a tangle of soft, garnet red onions that is as happy alongside a miniature pasty of apple and stilton as snuggling up to a pork chop. This isn’t really a “keeping pickle” – though you could if you wished – it is simply something to put together in 10 minutes to add a sweet-sour jolt to a lunch of bread and cheese or perhaps a pork pie.This is the answer to those who are not fond of commercially made pickles yet have no wish to mess around making their own. I am exceptionally fond of making the odd jar myself – plums, figs, runner beans or sauerkraut, but sometimes I want my hit of homemade sweet-sour accompaniment at speed. Red onion is the way to go. Pickles also sat with a salad of roast duck and ripe cantaloupe. Continue reading...

The week in theatre: Maryland; The Tragedy of Macbeth; White Noise
Royal Court Upstairs; Almeida; Bridge, LondonLucy Kirkwood’s raw response to the murders of Sabina Nessa and Sarah Everard captures a moment of terrible rage. And Saoirse Ronan commands as Lady MacbethI have spent a lot of the past 20 years walking through London alone at night. I need to do so to write this column, and I don’t intend to stop. But since the murders of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa, my homeward marches have an electric quality. The air has been shaken.This is not simply a question of alarm. As surely as Covid changed our habits and set them against a backdrop of strain, so these killings are altering the way we move around cities and the way we talk about them. I have become attuned to different words and signals. Passing a couple of women in the street last week, I heard “junction” and “should be OK” and knew they were discussing safety: we swapped notes (in itself a change) and agreed that all over the country women are having the same conversations. Recently, when I’ve flicked my eyes to see who was behind me, men have apologised, flinched, quickly moved further away. That’s new too. Continue reading...

Susan Sarandon Recalls Final Conversation With Ex-Lover David Bowie: ‘We Said Things That Needed To Be Said’
Susan Sarandon has spoken of how she reconnected with her former lover David Bowie before his death in 2016.The Hollywood star said they both had “things that needed to be said”, just months before the Ziggy Stardust star died from liver cancer.Susan starred with the actor and musician in The Hunger in 1983 but it didn’t come to light that they’d been lovers until 30 years later.Speaking to The Mail on Sunday’s You magazine, Susan said: “I was fortunate enough to be closer to him right before he died, the last couple of months. He did find me again. We talked to each other and said some things that needed to be said.“I was so fortunate to be able to see him when he told me what was going on with him.”Susan also praised the music icon’s wife, Iman, who he married in 1992.“I love his wife Iman, someone who was so equal in stature to him,” she said.“That was clearly who he was destined to be with. And I’ve kept in touch with her.”Susan went on to share her frustration at not being able to fully remember her last ever conversation with David.“I wasn’t sleeping so I took a pretty strong sleep aid,” she explained. “And I had this dream that David had called me and that we’d had this conversation. Then later I thought, ‘Did he actually call me?’“And I went to my phone and he had. But I have no recollection of what that conversation was.“He died a week later. It’s all so frustrating.”READ MORE:David Bowie’s Widow Iman Says She Will Never Remarry: ‘This Was My True Love’It Looks Like Take That's Howard Donald Was Tricked By A Fake Photo Of Himself And David BowieDavid Bowie's Son Duncan Jones Hits Out At Reports Of A New Biopic, Stardust

Facebook’s policing of vitriol is even more lackluster outside the US, critics say
Digital activists around the world are urging Facebook to take seriously how its algorithm incites misinformation and ethnic violenceOn a cloudy evening in Nairobi, Berhan Taye is scrolling through a spreadsheet in which she has helped document more than 140 Facebook posts from Ethiopia that contain hate speech. There are videos of child abuse, texts of hate speech against different ethnic groups, and hours-long live streams inciting hatred. These posts breach Facebook community guidelines in any context. Yet for Taye and her colleagues, this is what Facebook’s news feed has looked like for years in Ethiopia.Because there aren’t enough content moderators focused on Ethiopia, it has been up to Taye, an independent researcher looking at technology’s impact on civil society, and a team of grassroots volunteers to collect and then report misinformation and hate speech to Facebook.

The dark side of wellness: the overlap between spiritual thinking and far-right conspiracies
Extreme right-wing views and the wellness community are not an obvious pairing, but ‘conspirituality’ is increasingly pervasive. How did it all become so toxic?It was the afternoon of 4 July 2020, and Melissa Rein Lively’s video was about to go viral. A PR executive in Arizona, she already had the appearance of a person for whom a viral video was part of the plan, but with the super-groomed blondeness better suited to a branded beauty tutorial than a clip of face masks being torn from their racks. “Finally we meet the end of the road. This shit is over, we don’t want any of this any more!” she screams, holding the phone camera in one hand and tossing face masks with the other, in a video that swiftly became known as QAnon Karen. When two employees at the Scottsdale branch of Target confront her, she continues, “Why? I can’t do it cause I’m a blonde white woman? Wearing a fucking $40,000 Rolex? I don’t have the right to fuck shit up?”Rein Lively had always thought of herself as a spiritual person. Her interests were grounded in “wellness, natural health, organic food”, she lists for me today from her home in Arizona, “yoga, ayurvedic healing, meditation, etc.” When the pandemic hit she started spending more time online, on wellness sites that offered affirmations, recipes and, on health, the repeated message to “Do your research.” She’d click on a video of foods that boost immunity and she’d see a clip about the dangers of vaccines. “A significant number of influencers previously focused on wellness and spirituality,” she noticed, “seemed to become dominated with what we now understand to be QAnon content.” QAnon is the conspiracy theory that Donald Trump is fighting a deep-state cabal of Satanic paedophiles. It originated on far-right message boards before entering online wellness communities, where it found a largely female following, who continue to share phrases like “Save the Children”. The phrase was first used by QAnon believers spreading the false claim that Hillary Clinton abused children and drank their blood. Today that phrase is seen on social media posts by yoga teachers and wellness influencers speaking out against human trafficking. Continue reading...
