Harrods stops selling Ganesha handbag after backlash from Hindus
US label Judith Leiber’s depiction of the god on £6,340 leather clutch criticised as ‘demeaning’Harrods has stopped selling a luxury handbag after the accessory caused offence among the Hindu community.The bag, from the New York label Judith Leiber favoured by Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez, sculptures the Hindu god Ganesha into a leather clutch. Many Hindus saw the image of the god on a handbag as demeaning and commodifying their religion. They believe in non-violence against animals, so the use of leather is considered insensitive, especially in this context. Continue reading...

‘The support left me speechless’: how Sarah Moore returned to W Series grid
The pandemic meant swapping a racing car for a delivery van but the kindness of strangers got the British driver back on trackThe British W Series driver Sarah Moore had been looking forward to going racing again this year. Instead she found herself confronted by one of the disheartening, blunt realities of the pandemic. Her income gone and unable to afford a new helmet, Moore was forced to look to the kindness of strangers to ensure she can climb behind the wheel again this season. Their reaction left her speechless with gratitude.“It takes a lot to make me cry but it’s fair to say I have been quite emotional over the last couple of days,” she says. After enduring a tough year in 2020 when she swapped a racing car for a delivery van and had to postpone her wedding twice, the 27-year-old from Harrogate is now on a high for 2021.

Clapboard Jungle review – guide to getting an indie film made is pitch imperfect
Canadian director Justin McConnell has created a self-indulgent selfie-fest – I’d pass on his fantasy horror tooJustin McConnell is a Canadian indie director who has here created what amounts to a tiring and self-indulgent video diary of the last five years as he tries to get his passion project made (a fantasy horror called Lifechanger). It is interspersed with what feels like hundreds of thousands of interviews with beaming film people, some very famous (such as Paul Schrader and Guillermo Del Toro), some not so famous, but all giving us their well-meant platitudes about getting your films made by following your dream and realising that it’s all about storytelling.Clapboard Jungle suffers from a weird mix of information overload and a lack of actual, usable information that might be of assistance to film-makers or of interest to film audiences. To an extraordinary degree, this film is packed with endless selfie shots of McConnell’s face as – zonked with stress or anxiety or disappointment – he trudges through airport department lounges on his way to festivals, placidly listens to music on a bus, or takes calls from producers and distributors passing on his project.

America’s year of hunger: how children and people of color suffered most
Investigation of a year’s worth of data reveals the scale of America’s hunger and food insecurity crisis during a year of Covid-19Graphics by Aliya UteuovaBlack families in the US have gone hungry at two to three times the rate of white families over the course of the pandemic, according to new analysis which suggests political squabbling over Covid aid exacerbated a crisis that left millions of children without enough to eat.An investigation into food poverty by the Guardian and the Institute for Policy Research (IPR) at Northwestern University found gaping racial inequalities in access to adequate nutrition that threatens the long-term prospects of a generation of Black and brown children.

The US food system creates hunger and debt – but there is another way | Michael Fakhri
Michael Fakhri, the UN special rapporteur on the right to food, says the US food system is built on injustices but there is hope where people are prioritizing the right to food The Covid-19 pandemic has not only been a public health crisis, it has also been a hunger crisis. When millions of Americans lost their jobs, they no longer had enough money to feed themselves and their families. Hunger predictably struck people who were already marginalized. As was evidenced by long lines at food banks, it also struck middle-class families and exacerbated inequality. Even with vaccines, people continue getting weak and sick during the pandemic and the burden is disproportionately landing on women to work harder to ensure everyone stays healthy and alive.To add injury upon injury, parts of the food system are also a public health hazard. For example, meatpacking plants in the US and around the world have fostered the pandemic, spreading the virus to nearby communities due to poor working conditions and environmental abuses.
