'He got away with it': how the founder of Bikram yoga built an empire on abuse
A new Netflix documentary takes a no-holds-barred look at yoga guru Bikram Choudhury, still training teachers after dozens of accusations of abuseIn recent years, there’s been a growing discourse on intense fitness classes – Crossfit, SoulCycle – as the new secular religion. But if there was one branch that pushed the envelope from religion to near-fanatic cultishness, it’s Bikram yoga, the 90-minute routine of 26 postures performed in a room heated to 120 degrees founded by Bikram Choudhury. Clad in his signature tiny black Speedo and tight ponytail, Choudhury lorded over an empire built on sweat, devotion and $10k a pop teacher trainings – and, as explained in a new Netflix documentary, sexual harassment, rape and maniacal control.

I cannot take a five-star trip to a sea as clear as vodka, but a day trip is even better | Hannah Jane Parkinson
A miniature jaunt to British pebbles or historical cities is a way of experiencing the world in bitesizeOK, let’s get the bad out of the way: the portmanteau “daycation”, a monstrous offshoot of the almost-equally offensive “staycation”. Given that I believe day trips are 12-hour delights, they do not deserve to be labelled in such a painful way.Wherever one lives, and whatever one feels about that place, there is never a downside to going on a miniature jaunt. It’s a means of experiencing the world in bitesize; broadening one’s horizons, but not too much. If the trip goes badly, it doesn’t matter, because: a) it is short and b) it has the effect of casting a new light on one’s regular environment. Continue reading...

Holiday Autos tries to slip out of paying us a refund for the cost of our no-show car
We booked a hire car but there wasn’t one … and we had to pay another £300-plusI booked a rental car at Alicante Airport through Holiday Autos and arranged to collect it at midnight on 13 July. I paid the £120.45 in advance and received a booking voucher and confirmation that I was to collect it from the supplier, Rhodium. When we arrived at the rental desk, Rhodium first said it couldn’t locate the booking, and then that it had been cancelled by Holiday Autos. Holiday Autos then claimed that Rhodium did not have the car in stock and advised us to use a different hire company and then make a claim for compensation. Continue reading...

Thanks Obama, but these patronising lectures are getting old
The former president has been disparaging the activist left again, this time to a meeting of wealthy Democratic donors. But, as he used to believe, change is much neededBarack Obama used to be the Hope and Change guy. He wrote a book called The Audacity of Hope. His campaign slogans were: “Yes we can!” and: “Change you can believe in”. He inspired people to dream big and, at his rallies, exhilarated crowds chanted: “Fired up! Ready to go!”But that was a long time ago. Obama is older now and wiser. He realises hope can sometimes be too audacious and he appears to have adopted new slogans to reflect that. “No we can’t!” and “Don’t believe in change – it’s too hard to achieve.” Post-presidency, his rallying cry seems to be: “Simmer down, kids: you’re going way too far to the left.” Continue reading...

'What will be left for us?' Lagos fishermen lament the oil refinery
In Nigeria’s megacity, rampant development and a growing population are forcing communities to go further for fishAlmost as soon as the fishermen arrive with their haul, it disappears. The fish market in Epe, at the edge of Lagos, now runs like a kind of seafood cabal, with demand so high that many miss out. The major buyers are served as a priority – the big Lagos restaurants, a few cold room owners, then the rest. Sometimes smaller fishermen will sell to favoured market-stall holders. There is simply not enough to go around.“When I couldn’t find red snappers in Victoria Island, a friend suggested I go to the Epe market. But the snappers were not there either,” says Enita Aderemi, a local freelance writer. “The freshwater catfish I found cost three times the price I bought them for three months ago, a price that was already high.” Continue reading...

Bug in Google Camera put Android users at risk of being secretly recorded
Not one to let Facebook get ahead, Google has disclosed a vulnerability in Android which made it possible for hackers to hijack your camera, and secretly capture photos and record footage — even when the phone is locked or the screen is off. The bug, discovered by researchers from Checkmarx, stemmed from permission bypass issues in the Google Camera app. The issue (filed under CVE-2019-2234) affected Pixel phones, but further spilled over to devices from Samsung and other manufacturers. “An attacker can control the app to take photos and/or record videos through a rogue application that has no permissions to do so,”… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Android,Google

Jimmy Kimmel tricks Trump fans into declaring their support for... Richard Nixon
Tuesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! took to the streets to ask Trump supporters whether they felt the U.S. president should be impeached for his controversial actions. Unsurprisingly, they didn't, disagreeing across the board. However, the facts put to the public weren't actually about Donald Trump. Instead, they were very clear and obvious references to Richard Nixon. You know, that other U.S. president who also faced impeachment for doing crimes. The one who gave us the suffix -gate for every public scandal since the '70s. The one who resigned rather than drag everyone through further mud-slinging and suffering.

Dark Waters review – Mark Ruffalo v big business in enraging drama
The shocking true story of how corporate corruption infected the water of a small town is brought to the screen in mostly effective form by Todd HaynesAt the end of Dark Waters, a dense, angry drama about the horrifying health effects of corporate negligence, it’s possible, and perhaps quite likely, to leave the cinema with complaints about the specifics of the film-making. Sometimes it pushes too much, sometimes not enough, a conventional procedural with undeniable flaws. But what’s entirely impossible as the credits roll, is to leave without a palpable sense of fury, a real world, off-screen outrage directed not just at a particular issue but at a particular company. It’s a film that works best as a two-hour assault on DuPont, a chemical company with toxic blood all over its hands. Continue reading...

Seth Meyers slams the GOP's latest attempts to undermine impeachment hearings
The third day of public Trump impeachment hearings took place on Thursday, though it feels as though they've been dragging on since 2016. Fortunately, Late Night with Seth Meyers examined some of the day's highlights for those too exhausted to watch the proceedings themselves. "The public hearings are going so badly for Trump that Republicans who spent weeks complaining the initial depositions were being held in private are now going back to saying this should all be handled behind closed doors," quipped Meyers, citing comments made by Senator Ron Johnson. Thursday's hearings were primarily concerned with the testimonies of White House advisor Jennifer Williams and decorated Iraq War veteran Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman. Meanwhile, Republicans seemed primarily concerned with attempting to discredit a Purple Heart recipient.  Read more...More about Donald Trump, Seth Meyers, Late Night With Seth Meyers, Impeachment, and Trump Administration

‘Englishness’ was never enough to build a nation on | Alex Niven
With the union under unprecedented strain, it’s time for a radical new vision that goes beyond narrow nationalismsDuring his brief tenure as prime minister, Boris Johnson has flaunted his disregard for the tenets of Tory traditionalism. In an eventful few months, he has misled the monarchy and belittled the judiciary. But the bigger surprise has been his indifference to Conservative unionism. While Theresa May’s Brexit strategy faltered partly because she believed in the inviolability of the United Kingdom, Johnson seems relatively relaxed about the prospect of his party surrendering nearly all its seats in Scotland – and, in theory at least, about sacrificing some of Northern Ireland’s statutory Britishness if it will smooth the passage of a Brexit deal.All of this suggests that Johnson’s vision for government, if it can be called that, is a specifically English one. There is underlying logic here. With Scottish independence and Irish reunification now looming somewhere in the middle distance, it makes sense for Johnson to view unionism as a hopeless cause, and to think about ways of governing England after the United Kingdom crumbles.

How the IMF can stay relevant
The Fund’s policy advice at present has little impact – for that it has to share the blameThis year, I didn’t attend the October annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in Washington, DC. Instead, I paid close attention to reports of the gathering and talked to people who were there whom I respect. What emerged is depressing for the wellbeing of the global economy. In particular, the prospect of continued weakness and fragmentation pressures will compound the challenges to the credibility and effectiveness of multilateral institutions.The convening power of the IMF and the World Bank is unquestionably strong, if not unique. Every year, their annual meetings attract top economic and financial officials from more than 180 countries, as well as a far larger number of private-sector representatives. It’s an exceptional global gathering, not only for officials to exchange views but also for corporate networking. Continue reading...

‘The clock is ticking’: race to save 2 million from statelessness in Assam
A team of volunteer paralegals are fighting to stop Indians without proof of citizenship being sent to detention campsWhen she was one, Suro Devi was rescued by a sewer cleaner from a rubbish dump in Assam, northeast India. When the state of Assam started a massive exercise to register its citizens in 2015, Suro Devi did not have a birth certificate, information about her parents, a voter list with her name on it, or anything to prove that she had lived in Assam before 25 March 1971. She seemed destined to be left off the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and become stateless, and perhaps spend the rest of her days in a detention camp.But Zamser Ali, a citizenship rights activist based in Assam’s capital, Guwahati, heard about Devi’s case. He knew that documents were not the only thing that could prove your origins. He managed to track down five eyewitnesses to her rescue from the dump. And in August, when the draft NRC was published, Devi’s name appeared on it. Continue reading...
