Eurozone recession fears ease as French companies pick up pace - business live
Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial news, including a new healthcheck on the eurozoneFrench private sector growth has picked upFlash PMI rises to 52.7 from 51.9, showing faster growth 8.35am BST Eliot Kerr, economist at IHS Markit, says France appears to be outperforming some of its eurozone neighbours.“French private sector businesses posted another solid increase in output during August. Service sector expansion continued to surpass manufacturing growth, reflecting the broader trend seen across the eurozone in recent months. However, in contrast to its peers, economic growth in France has remained solid and the latest set of PMI figures only add weight to the argument that this outperformance is likely to continue in the third quarter.” 8.28am BST Good morning, and welcome to our rolling coverage of the world economy, the financial markets, the eurozone and business.

Angel Has Fallen: is Gerard Butler Hollywood's weirdest action hero?
Inane, profane and wholly humourless, the Fallen trilogy would be beyond redemption were it not for the thirsty work of its starThe many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics states that every possible outcome to every decision ever made will each happen, and each outcome exists in its own parallel universe. I am telling you this because Angel Has Fallen – the third of Gerard Butler’s Has Fallen series, is released this week – and I’m taking it as proof that we all live in the wrong universe.Cast your mind back to 2013. As with The Prestige and The Illusionist in 2006, or Armageddon and Deep Impact in 1998, two films with the same premise were released in quick succession. In both, terrorists storm the White House. But only one of them was any good. That film was White House Down, in which Channing Tatum, in his first charismatic rush of true moviestardom, swaggered and winked his way through an insurmountable wall of danger. It was far too stupid to win any awards but, as encapsulated in the scene where Tatum admonishes the president for bonking him on the head with a rocket launcher, its stupidness was self-aware.

Football transfer rumours: Havertz and Sancho to Manchester United?

Jadon Sancho might have agreed a new £190,000 contract with Borussia Dortmund, but that will not stop United from making a £100m bid for the England winger in January. Dortmund will consider selling on one condition: Ole Gunnar Solskjær has to tell Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford that Fred takes all the penalties from now on.United do not plan to stop at Sancho as they hunt for attacking reinforcements. They are also in for Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz, though they face competition for the £90m forward from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City. Someone’s PR team have been busy!

How do I take better photos? | Ask Jack
Lyndsay wants people to post better pictures on Facebook. Here’s how to get the shot right on your phone or cameraSo many people post pictures on Facebook with very advanced cameras, eg from iPhones. Alas, many do not crop their photos, the horizon is not horizontal, there are dark shadows … Some people do not even know the camera can face outwards: I notice so many selfies! I think a gentle article from Jack Schofield on how not to disappoint your friends with holiday pics would be wonderful. Lyndsay (via Facebook)There are some terrible photos on Facebook, but I think the average level is very high. Back in the dark ages BC (before computers), I edited several photographic magazines and a partwork, You and Your Camera. Then, the quality of the average enprint, as enlarged prints were called, was extremely low, and you couldn’t edit pictures unless you printed them yourself. Photos taken with small-frame film formats – like the 110 cartridges used by Kodak’s Pocket Instamatic cameras, introduced in 1972 – could be dire. Continue reading...

'It was like a red-hot poker': why the extreme pain of vulvodynia is going untreated
For 16% of women, using a tampon or even sitting down can be agony – and sex is impossible. Why do so few doctors know how to diagnose and treat it?The first time I tried to have sex I was 16. I knew it might hurt and that perhaps I would bleed. I was OK with that: it was part of the mythology. I imagined that, afterwards, I would stare at myself in the bathroom mirror, like the heroine in my own coming-of-age drama.As it turned out, I had to stop the sex before it properly began. An excruciating pain at the opening of my vagina shocked me into total stillness – it felt like burning and ripping at once. I was so consumed with shame that I couldn’t have looked at my reflection if I had tried. Continue reading...

Telling Lies review – endless possibilities in brilliant detective story
PC; Mac; iOSWhile untangling a web of lies players are tantalisingly close to the characters in this believable world created by Sam BarlowSuspense, plot and character have long been considered the foundations of a good thriller – but really, the sign of a mystery done well is a sound. It’s the “hwwwwahhh!” of air whooshing past your lips and down into your lungs after a pivotal reveal. It’s a noise certain to be heard during the hours spent untangling the secret at the heart of Telling Lies.Sam Barlow’s critically acclaimed Her Story (2015) introduced us to the concept of the interactive search engine thriller. In that game, you play an unnamed character who, for reasons unknown, is sitting at a computer trawling through hours of stolen police station video footage showing a suspect being interviewed. Your main investigation tool is a search bar where you type in keywords such as “love” to pull up tagged clips. One of those clips might include another clue, such as a name, which in turn can be searched to pull you further down the rabbit hole. By making notes and playing detective, it’s your job to decide what the truth is. Continue reading...

Work until 75? Many people won’t even live that long | Frances Ryan
Iain Duncan Smith’s plan to push the pensions burden from the state on to the individual ignores class differences in life expectancyAn influential conservative thinktank – fronted by the former work and pensions secretary, Iain Duncan Smith – has proposed the state pension age should rise to 75 over the next 16 years. If the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) had its way, the retirement age would go up to 70 just nine years from now, as the change is phased in.It’s important to stress that it’s not yet government policy, but given the CSJ’s influence, it’s not unreasonable to imagine a future with dramatically delayed retirement. It’s a demographic reality that the state is having to meet higher pension costs: the pensions bill rose from £17bn in 1989 to £92bn today, and will cost £20bn more by 2023 as the population ages. The government already plans to increase the pension age to 67 in 2028 and then 68 by 2046, leaving us working well into our twilight years. At the same time, nearly 4 million women have already been forced to wait up to an extra six years to get their pensions after changes to bring women’s retirement age into line with men’s.

Researcher discloses second Steam zero-day exploit after being shut out of bug bounty program
A second zero-day vulnerability has been publicly disclosed in the Steam gaming client by security researcher Vasily Kravets after he said he was banned from its bug-bounty program. The revelations come two weeks after another zero-day previously disclosed by Kravets and researcher Matt Nelson was disputed by Valve, Steam’s parent company. The flaw (CVE-2019-14743), which affects Windows versions of the client, concerns a privilege escalation (aka elevation of privilege or local privilege escalation) bug that makes it possible for other apps, and potentially malware, on a user’s computer to run code with system privileges.

The Government of No One by Ruth Kinna review – the rise of anarchism
From terrorists to Groucho-Marxists ... the story of one of the most daring political currents of the ageThe first suicide bomber in English literature is a crazed anarchist professor in Joseph Conrad’s novel The Secret Agent who stalks around London wired up with explosives. Entranced by a vision of pure nothingness, he has only to squeeze a rubber ball in his pocket to annihilate the present and clear a space for a utopian future. His political comrades are a bunch of sinister continental freaks who succeed in blowing up a young boy with learning difficulties.Anarchism, in short, has something of an image problem. Even Ruth Kinna, in this sympathetic, impressively well-informed history of the movement, has to admit that it has had its fair share of bombers and assassins. Yet she also illustrates its extraordinary creativity. Born in the 19th century, a brainchild of the Unholy Trinity of French libertarian socialist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and Russian revolutionaries Mikhail Bakunin and Peter Kropotkin, anarchism rejected what it saw as Karl Marx’s narrow economic and proletarian viewpoint. Nevertheless, the two creeds have a lot in common. Both believe in class struggle, the abolition of private property and the overthrow of the state. Both see the role of the state as defending private property, a view that you can also find in Cicero. Marx thinks that the state will eventually wither away, while anarchists believe in helping it on its way as soon as they can. Continue reading...

Princess Emmy review – plodding horse-whisperer animation
The family-friendly story of a girl with a gift for speaking to her equine friends lacks even minimal levels of peril and adventureThis well-meaning, eat-your-broccoli kids’ animation from Germany steers clear of simpering princess stereotypes in its story about a young royal who’s mad about animals. She is princess Emmy, who has a secret gift – she can talk to horses. There is some nice acting here from the voice cast on the English dub, but even little kids may find Princess Emmy tame, lacking even age-appropriate levels of danger and adventure.Ruby Barnhill voices Emmy, a full-of-beans modern princess who is told by an ancient spirit that she must pass a test to prove she’s worthy of her talking-to-horses gift. At the same time, her nemesis cousin Princess Gizana (Bella Ramsey, Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones) shows up at the castle for a ball. The films deserves points for showing the cousins’ blood-boiling anger with each other – so often in kids films girls are limited to nice sugary feelings, or bitchiness and envy. Continue reading...

What happened when I got in touch with three of my old teachers | Adrian Chiles
I thought Mr Corbett would be dead by now. Turns out he’s not much older than meOnly a few people seem to remain in touch with any of their schoolteachers. This seems a shame to me. If I had gone on to do well in life, I would want to share that with the ones who had doubted me. And if I had done badly, I might want to let them know so they could take some of the blame. And if I were a teacher, I would be beside myself with curiosity as to what became of my charges.I am very happy, more than 30 years on, to be in touch with three of my teachers. When I got a message from Mr Corbett not so long ago, I must say that my first reaction was: “Blimey, I thought he’d be dead by now.” In fact, he was head of a fine secondary school in Pershore, Worcestershire, by this time and invited me to say a few words on speech day. It turned out that Mr Corbett was not only not dead, he wasn’t actually much older than me. Weirdly, I’d caught up with him. When he first taught me, I was in my early teens and he was in his early 20s. That was a big gap. Now, alarmingly, it has narrowed to almost nothing. Continue reading...

In the flesh: how beauty is luring customers back to the high street
The beauty industry is fighting back against the mass exodus to online retailers – with the kind of exclusivity that can only be experienced in-storeFrom plumes of powder to spritzes of perfumes, the department-store beauty hall has remained in many ways unchanged since Harry Selfridge first moved personal-care products to the front of his Oxford Street store early last century. But in the face of a difficult retail landscape, with the British high street suffering closures and losses as footfall dries up, the beauty industry is fighting back against the mass exodus of consumers from bricks-and-mortar stores to online retailers. How? By putting exclusivity and experiences at the heart of its offering – whether it is receiving makeup tips directly from Pat McGrath or getting your hands on products you can’t find anywhere else in the world.So far, it’s working. According to market research company The NPD Group, British high-street stores still accounted for 80% of prestige beauty sales in 2018, while, in fashion, Mintel reported that online sales already made up almost a quarter of total spend back in 2017. Same-day delivery and add-to-basket ease might make online shopping the more convenient option, but when it comes to beauty, nothing quite compares to the ability to sniff, play with and try products in the flesh. Nars’s new highlighter might look like any other highlighter online, but have you seen, in person, what it can do to your cheekbones? Continue reading...
