Scientists launch search for genetic test to spot killer prostate cancer
Gene-screening, as is used to detect some breast cancer risks, could save thousands of livesScientists have begun work to create a prostate cancer screening service for the UK. In a few years, middle-aged men could be tested to reveal their genetic susceptibility to the condition, with those deemed to be under significant threat of developing it being offered treatment or surgery.The service would tackle a disease that has become the nation’s most commonly diagnosed cancer and would parallel Britain’s breast cancer screening programme. Every year, more than 47,500 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer: 129 a day on average. More than 11,500 deaths from the disease occur each year, with one in eight men being diagnosed with prostate cancer at some time in their lives. Continue reading...

St Vincent: Daddy’s Home review – a compelling family affair
(Caroline/Loma Vista)Channelling 70s New York funk and her father’s release from prison, the ever brilliant Annie Clark loosens up on her engagingly soulful sixth albumAnnie “St Vincent” Clark may exaggerate the detail, tell oblique stories or get a little carried away in the dressing-up box, but her work is always packed with emotional veracity. One of Clark’s reputations – for hiding her truths behind elaborate personae – is a little undeserved.Over the course of five albums, all increasingly assured, St Vincent has often laid her world perfectly bare. Young Lover, from her last high-concept, hot-pink tour de force, Masseduction (2017), found Clark’s then-significant other in a bathtub in Paris, unconscious. The song felt like reportage; at the time, Clark was dating a supermodel. Her howl of pain was visceral. “Wake up young lover, I thought you were dying!” Continue reading...

One to watch: BABii
The Margate-based multi-hyphenate channels her colourful upbringing on her hypnotic second albumFor her forthcoming album, MiiRROR, BABii has produced 10 darkly beautiful electronic pop songs, directed videos, made costumes, designed an alternative reality game, written a fantasy book, birthed a dragon and typed a lot of extra “i”s. Born Daisy Warne, brought up by her father in Canada and England, she still helps run his arts studio in Margate as well as teaching video game writing at uni. Days off are rare.Growing up surrounded by her dad’s artist friends in creative spaces and salvage yards, BABii learned how to create beauty out of anything, all the time. Recently, she reconnected with her mother, and the emotional aftershock led her to empty her heart into the fabulous MiiRROR. It anatomises BABii’s chaotic childhood and ongoing struggle with maternal figures, while sounding like a chainsaw made of candyfloss. Continue reading...

Geoff Dyer: ‘I am what you might describe as chippy’
The writer, 62, reminisces on his working-class Cheltenham roots, college career and dole-queue days in a Brixton squat where he first began to readMy first memory is one of overwhelming boredom. The never-ending afternoons of a lonely only child. Not a specific memory, but a feeling.I am what you might describe as “chippy”. Touchy and defensive. It’s a horrible quality. I grew up in Cheltenham. I had a working-class childhood, though the town is synonymous with retired colonels, Jane Austen-esque. I didn’t really meet the sort of person we would now recognise as middle-class until I met my girlfriend when I was 17 or 18. I only realised she was retroactively. It wasn’t until I got to Oxford University that I had any understanding of the class system. Continue reading...

Alastair Campbell’s partner Fiona Millar: Coping with his depression taught me: don’t blame yourself
After decades of living with a partner tormented by mental illness, Cherie Blair’s former aide appeals for more help for sufferers and their familiesOver the years, I have grown used to various different “identities” – aide to Cherie Blair, partner of Alastair Campbell, latterly mother of comedian Grace Campbell. More recently, I have adopted a new persona; the partner of someone with mental health issues. I have lived this role in private for more than 40 years but only recently “gone public” since Alastair published his latest book, Living Better: How I Learned To Survive Depression, and asked me to write a chapter from my own perspective.It isn’t easy telling such a personal story but it has been worthwhile for the overwhelming reaction from others – mostly people I don’t know who have shared almost identical experiences, which go something like this … Continue reading...
