Stephen Colbert examines Trump's butt in the name of the impeachment hearings
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert continued its ongoing chronicling of the Trump impeachment inquiry on Monday night, ensuring the aliens who discover Earth's wreckage in a million years will know how we destroyed ourselves. In particular, Colbert focused on the upcoming testimony of U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, whose phone call with President Trump regarding the potential quid pro quo with Ukraine has already been the subject of damning testimonies.  According to witnesses, Trump made it explicit in the conversation that he was aiming for Ukraine to open up an investigation into the Bidens. And this wasn't the only flavor of disturbing in the call. Read more...More about Donald Trump, Stephen Colbert, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Impeachment, and Gordon Sondland

Why vote? You’re just clinging to a wrecked system | Suzanne Moore
The looming general election offers fake binary choices – Corbyn or Johnson, leave or remain. Taking part is to bolster brokennessI am sitting, with old friends, around a table. We start talking about the election. No one is enthused. My friends are mostly going to vote Labour. It’s what they do. They are unhappy about it – a couple may go Lib Dem. They are all ardent remainers. I feel as if I should be somewhere else, that somehow, while these are decent people trying to do the right thing, they are no longer my people. They are being forced to vote for politicians they do not trust, and to reduce their complex, well-thought-out beliefs. Well, that’s democracy, you might say. Them’s the breaks. I say, break it more. Break it down.Voting can no longer be a tribal, class-based enterprise. I once bribed my working-class mother not to vote Tory. That’s class war for you. But before you start the lecture about people having died for my right to vote ... you should know that that has the same effect on me as arguing I should eat food I hate because children are starving in Africa. Stop. I live in a safe Labour seat. How I vote doesn’t matter in this first-past-the-post system. Continue reading...

Song of the South: the difficult legacy of Disney's most shocking movie
The 1946 film won’t be showing up on Disney+, but its insidious racism serves as an important reminder of the company’s dark historyFor all the uncertainty surrounding the streaming wars – even for a dominant company like Netflix, which is still hemorrhaging billions of dollars – there’s reason to believe that Disney+ is a safe bet. Even if every one of its original launch titles landed with a thud, Disney just needed to crack open the vault and allow viewers to dive, Scrooge McDuck-like, into its riches: 80 years of peerless animation, from early classics like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Bambi to renaissance titles like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast to recent hits like Frozen and Moana. And that’s to say nothing of Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and a mule who kicks 100-yard field goals.

What’s behind a phobia of holes?
Fear of clusters of holes and cracks, called trypophobia, may be evolutionary in origin. But as details are shared, it is becoming a social contagion. By Chrissie GilesJulia was around 11 years old the first time it happened. She let herself into her dad’s apartment in Malmö, Sweden, dropped her schoolbag and flopped on to the sofa. She switched on the TV and turned to her favourite channel in time for the cartoons. The screen filled up with a cartoon man with a huge head. On his chin, in place of skin or a beard were huge cracks. Suddenly, she felt like she was going to throw up in disgust. She screwed up her eyes and fumbled for the button to turn off the TV.Every few months or so after this, she would see something that she just could not bear. Something that made her feel utterly disgusted and terrified. Sometimes it was cracks, but other times it was patterns of holes or dots, or scenes from nature programmes showing things such as groups of barnacles. She would shake, pour with sweat and end up lying on the floor in tears. One time, she was chatting on the phone when she saw something so awful she threw her mobile across the room. No one else she knew seemed to have this strange reaction. What was going on? Continue reading...

Glimpses of women through time: 130 years of National Geographic images

As Susan Goldberg, the editor-in-chief of the magazine, notes in the introduction, the book is meant to “offer glimpses of women through time – how they were perceived, how they were treated, how much power they had or didn’t have – up to the present day.” The ultimate aim, she writes, is to “bring more women’s lives into the light”.

Rage and responsibility: what we’ve learned in nine months of reporting homeless deaths
We have spent most of this year writing about the death of people on our streets. This crisis has simple, practical solutions, and everyone cares about it. Why isn’t it an election priority?Nine months ago we set out to look at the sharpest end of homelessness – not simply those who live on the streets but those who die on them or in emergency accommodation. Homelessness had become omnipresent in Britain. According to the last Shelter report, at least 320,000 people are homeless, almost 5,000 are rough sleeping (likely to be a huge underestimate) and 726 people died homeless in England and Wales in 2018 (a 22% rise from 2017). Most of those 726 would have been street homeless or in emergency accommodation.In fact today the only way you can ignore homelessness in the UK is by averting your eyes. When, for the first time, statistics were released about the number of people who had died homeless, it was incredibly important. But we did not want these people to remain statistics. We wanted to tell their life stories, look at what went wrong and investigate what could have been done differently by statutory bodies and charities. We have told half a dozen stories so far, and there are three more to come. Continue reading...

Nine years ago I watched Thiara Sanchez make a heart-stopping speech.

Citizens UK, the living wage community organisers, held a leaders’ hustings under the high dome of London’s Methodist Central Hall. In a heart-stopping moment, a 14-year-old girl, Tia Sanchez, stepped up to the lectern and told of the hardship of her family’s life.She pointed out two women: “This is my mum, Sandra, and my grandmother, Marta.” Then the bombshell dropped. “They work as cleaners in the Treasury.” They had cleaned Gordon Brown’s office when he was chancellor, for an outsourced to a private firm that paid poverty wages. She said what a difference a living wage would make. “I might get a laptop I need for homework. We wouldn’t have weeks where we just eat lentils. My mum could afford to take the tube instead of three buses, and I would have three more hours of her time a day.” Continue reading...
