If we can grow cruelty-free meat in a lab, what is there to beef about? | Barbara Ellen
Science is forcing vegans and vegetarians who demand others join them to think againWith the developments in laboratory-cultured meat, vegetarians and vegans need to ask themselves: is it still about animal welfare or is it about stopping people eating meat?Cultured meat, produced in bioreactors from muscle cells taken from live animals, has been approved for the first time by a regulatory authority. “Chicken bites” by San Francisco startup Eat Just have been approved for sale by the Singapore Food Agency. It’s a landmark moment that could lead to a revolution in “kind/clean” meat, significantly cutting down industrial livestock production, potentially doing away with it altogether. Continue reading...

Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman: stars of the perfect whodunnit, thanks to its ultimate plot twist | Rebecca Nicholson
Ignore the moaners and enjoy watching rich people sufferFor some peculiar reason, and let’s just call it the spirit of 2020, I am really enjoying watching rich people suffer, on TV at least. It is an increasingly popular and extravagant genre, its property porn leanings masking serious sadism when it comes to inflicting trauma on the ineffably wealthy. You came for the coastal vistas, you stayed to see these people’s lives fall apart in murder, betrayal and those gigantic glasses of wine that moneyed women glug to show they may be beautiful, but they have problems too.The Undoing was inescapable television, the Bodyguard of 2020, watercooler drama in a year without the watercooler. It starred Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman, both now titans of Good Telly, and sailed to a climax last week, finally revealing whodunnit after weeks of teasing. I am about to discuss whodunnit, so if you are behind, please don’t read on. But the revelation that it was the most obvious culprit seems to have infuriated a surprising number of viewers, who felt misled by the fact that it could have snipped out episodes two to five and essentially taken us to the same place.
