Afros in Azeroth: the quest for diversity in World of Warcraft
Sixteen years after its launch, World of Warcraft is finally introducing diverse skin tones, facial features and hairstyles. Game director Ion Hazzikostas explains why nowRecently, I’ve spent quite a lot of time pondering what an orc would look like with an afro. This, naturally, led to contemplation of an axe-afro-comb combo, and whether such a contraption would fall under blacksmithing or engineering.That’s because I’ve been playing Shadowlands, the eighth expansion to World of Warcraft. For Warcraft fans, there’s a lot to be excited about: the new game allows players to explore the afterlife – reviving classic characters such as Kael’thas Sunstrider – and introduces a new style of play in Torghast, a deliciously punishing dungeon that changes each time you visit.

Cutting UK overseas aid could harm the fight against future pandemics | Matthew Baylis and Fiona Tomley
In our age of emerging pathogens, funding for global research into zoonotic diseases such as Covid-19, Ebola and Sars is vitalCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageThis year, we’ve seen how a previously unknown animal virus can spill over into the human population in one country, pass rapidly between people, and spread across the world in days. With nearly 1.5m reported deaths from Covid-19, the virus is a startling indication of how the health of the world’s human population is inseparable from animals and the environment that we share with them.Treating health in a way that recognises these interdependencies is called the One Health approach. Rather than studying human health in isolation, this approach considers how the health of people, animals and the environment are intimately related. Zoonotic diseases that we catch from animals emerge most frequently in places where humans and animals interact closely, while the globalisation of trade and international travel, the intensification of agriculture and ecosystem destruction all contribute to the increased risk of animal pathogens infecting humans. Instead of leaving the job of protecting human health exclusively to medical experts, the One Health approach shares responsibility across veterinary, biological, environmental and social sciences.

The long-awaited Crossrail deal is unfair... London deserves better
You can spend a lot of your life waiting for London’s big rail projects to be delivered. The first tranche of the “Elizabeth Line” got going in 2008 with the aspiration of linking Reading and Heathrow with Canary Wharf and Essex via the West End. In the way of big infrastructure projects, it has since turned into a political piñata  — a symbol for those inclined to see any megaproject in the South as a defeat for the North. Londoners too might have tired of a grand promise which ends up visible mainly via an eternal building site at Tottenham Court Road and a internal decapitation of management after cost overruns.
