Daisy May Cooper: ‘It’s like I’m flypaper for embarrassing myself’
The star of This Country will do anything for a laugh – even spoofing Kim Kardashian’s ‘break the internet’ shoot. She talks about her journey from cleaner to comedy queen• Read an extract from her memoirA ripple of excitement crackles around the room as the two round cushions that will soon become Daisy May Cooper’s new bum are fluffed, plumped and preened, and then packed into her black sequined ballgown. She is about to recreate a shot from Kim Kardashian’s notorious “break the internet” photoshoot, swapping champagne for ketchup, and in a couple of minutes, she will have to work out how to stand at the correct angle for a tray of chips to balance on her bum. Fittingly, the Beyoncé/Destiny’s Child playlist that has been on shuffle throughout the day has landed on Bootylicious.Cooper turns her head, looks down, and laughs. Her laugh is phenomenal, huge, a long, loud hoot drawn out into a throaty cackle. “Let’s just go for it!” she shouts, with a few more swear words thrown in. To say she swears like a sailor doesn’t do it justice; she swears like a naval fleet. The makeup artist rubs oil on to the tops of her arms to make them look shiny. “Fuckin’ ’ell,” she says, taking it all in, and lets out a wry chuckle. She seems utterly at home. Continue reading...

RIP Becca, queen of natural makeup. Luckily, there are some great alternatives
Fans of the Australian cosmetics brand shed a tear after its closure last month. But those in mourning needn’t worryBecca closed permanently last month, and many beauty fans – myself included – will miss it. The Australian-born makeup brand was the first to promote a pared-back, natural and cool-girl aesthetic to women of all skin tones and ages, and its quality was outstanding. Becca suffered an identity crisis at the dawn of Instagram, when lurid marketing and dubious collaborations jarred with its signature chic look and philosophy. When it finally returned to its roots, the pandemic meant even the brand’s best efforts couldn’t save Becca.Last spring fans reacted to the news of its imminent closure like saloon patrons to prohibition. Remaining stock of Becca’s hero products vanished within days, leaving latecomers bereft. But dry your eyes: I have been researching alternatives. Continue reading...

‘We cleaned by night and wrote by day’: Daisy May Cooper on creating This Country
In an extract from her memoir, the comedy star recalls how creating skits sustained her and brother Charlie as they struggled to make ends meet• Read an interview with Daisy May CooperIn my first week at Rada we had an introductory talk from the school principal. “We’re going to dismember you, pull you apart limb by limb, and then piece you back together again.” I kid you not. Those were his first words. Many of us were taken apart but never put back together again.Before I went to Rada, I wasn’t even aware of the smörgåsbord of ways you could be told how utterly shit you were. It would be far too depressing for me to share all the negative comments made to me by students and tutors alike, but these are the highlights: “I don’t know why you’re here. You have no talent.” In second place: “You’re one of these actresses that’s here by fluke, aren’t you?” And trailing a close third was the withering: “Have you considered teaching, Daisy?” Continue reading...

The fight against climate change goes beyond reducing CO2 emissions

But the policies and agreements that emerge are some of the most vital steps in the fight against climate change.Every week we’ll hear from negotiators from a developing country that is involved in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change negotiations and will be attending the Cop26 climate conference.

‘Give people money and they’re no longer poor, it’s not rocket science’: Sammy Wright of the Social Mobility Commission
Deputy headteacher from Sunderland – and new novelist – on levelling up and his advice to the incoming head of the commissionTwo teenagers are curled up on a sofa, asleep in each other’s arms. On the kitchen floor close by, an adult lies in a pool of blood. Soon the police will be on their way and the siblings, who were abused and neglected as children, will pay a heavy price for what they have done. This is is a dramatic scene from Fit, the debut novel by Sammy Wright, a deputy headteacher and until this month a member of the Social Mobility Commission. His book, which evolved from his experience as a teacher, is so haunting that I found myself thinking – and even dreaming – about it days after I’d finished reading it. It has already won the Northern Book prize. Continue reading...

Is Hunter Biden’s art project painting the president into an ethical corner?

In a white-walled room at the Milk Studios art gallery, where a lone violinist played before a projected animation, musician Moby, artist Shepard Fairey and Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti reportedly mingled with about 200 guests.On display were artworks that combine canvas, yupo paper, wood and metal with oil, acrylic, ink and the written word. Organizers hope they will sell for up to half a million dollars – unusually high for an emerging artist. But then, this artist also happens to be son of the president of the United States.

Life keeps getting in the way of my quest to turn my family into robots | Emma Brockes
Dinner, bath, book, bedtime: every school year we stick to the timetable for a few days. Until the variables start creeping in …There is a protocol at New York City public schools that allows for early entrance in the morning if you sign your kids up for breakfast. Customarily, the school gates open at 8.30am (and shut, as we know too well, at 8.33am, after which you are marked late and forced to shout at your children in the street). But if you arrive 30 minutes early, you can get them up the steps and into the building for a Department of Education-issued muffin and milk and be back at your desk by 8.30am. This is the holy grail in our house, a piece of flawless efficiency that sets the stage for the rest of the day. In three years of school, we have achieved it twice.The quest for the perfect timetable is one I’ve been periodically engaged in since high school. Then, it was a matter of coloured pens and folders. If I could find the right combination of highlighters, stickers and capitalised sub-heads, I could pass into the golden zone of faultless revision notes, gateway to the state of nirvana. This ambition faded in my 20s and for some of my 30s, when life was single-focus enough to make timetabling simple. Now, in my 40s and with two kids and their interests to manage, the desire to nail a frictionless existence has come roaring back. It is particularly strong at this time of year, when the back-to-school vibes are strong. This year we’ll do it, I think. We’ll parcel out our time into 20-minute segments, and before we know it we’ll be robot-efficient.Emma Brockes is a Guardian columnist Continue reading...

Conflict of emotions greets Newcastle’s first game under Saudi owners | Sam Dalling
Relief at end of Ashley era has been replaced by questions of morality about what it means now to support Newcastle UnitedOn Sunday, Newcastle United fans will rise early, that excitable match-day knot occupying stomachs across Tyneside, and 50,000 will march on St James’ Park to witness the post-Mike Ashley era begin.But for many, the discomfort runs deeper than apprehension over a journey into the football unknown. Last week’s takeover saw 80% of the club’s shares acquired by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. True, the Premier League said it had received “legally binding” assurances that the Saudi state would not run the football club. But Saudi involvement has, quite rightly, brought enhanced scrutiny of the country’s human rights failings. Continue reading...

Ireland and Scotland target top table as T20 World Cup gets under way
Irish have underperformed at recent tournaments and Scots have toiled of late but both have realistic hopes of the Super 12sFive and a half years since Carlos Brathwaite ended the last Twenty20 World Cup on an unforgettable high, this year’s tournament begins on Sunday with a match for which the phrase low-key doesn’t quite cut it.As Oman take on Papua New Guinea at the 3,000-capacity Al Amerat Stadium in Muscat the key will be positively subterranean. The first round will feature fine cricket and compelling matches, it will see dreams realised and others crushed, but it also occupies a strange hinterland between humble qualifiers and World Cup proper, and whatever happens in the intervening period by the time a new name is engraved on the trophy in Dubai on 14 November the tournament opener will surely feel vanishingly distant in time, space and sheer star quality.

This will also include the heat and buildings strategy for insulating draughty homes and phasing out gas boilers, along with a massive expansion of offshore wind, and building electric vehicle charging networks.
