Authenticating a video showing hundreds of kneeling people in shackles and blindfolds on a Chinese railroad platform
Last week, a drone video showing hundreds of people in China being shackled and blindfolded and made to kneel on a train platform went viral; a piece of amazing digital detective work by Nathan Ruser presents a compelling case that the video is real, and that it was recorded in August 2018 near the city of Korla in Xinjiang province, where the Chinese state has been prosecuting a vicious, genocidal ethnic cleansing campaign against the predominantly Muslim Uyghur people. Not only is this a vital piece of evidence for understanding the scope of crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, but it's also a masterclass in digital image forensics, combining mathematical techniques for reverse-engineering the time of day from the shadows cast by lamp-poles with comparisons of satellite photos and maps. 4 days ago a video showing 3-400 detainees handcuffed & blindfolded at a train station in Xinjiang was uploaded to YouTube (https://t.co/GpEaZ7YkIK)In this thread I'll share how I've verified that this video was filmed at 库尔勒西站 (41.8202, 86.0176) on or around August 18th. pic.twitter.com/hr5xd8nahM— Nathan Ruser (@Nrg8000) September 21, 2019 (via Super Punch) Read the rest

Bianca del Rio review – startlingly mean drag star loves to hate
Wembley Arena, London Though the timing is spot-on, the comedian’s outrageous swipes at every sexuality, race and even disability descend to cliche as their wickedness exceeds their wit It’s a big night for Bianca del Rio, breakout star of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the first draq queen to headline Wembley Arena. And she’s celebrating the occasion by being unspeakably vicious about everybody. Of course, Del Rio isn’t the first drag act to flout propriety. But Bianca really puts the outré into outrégeous, with 75 minutes of comedy mocking straights, “faggots” and lesbians, midgets, “fat girls” and people with Down’s Syndrome too.Which is fine, as far as it goes. No one group can claim to have been singled out for abuse – and Del Rio takes pains to reserve some harsh words for herself. Her hate speech is in any case just for flamboyant fun, right? Nothing about Roy Haylock’s alter ego invites us to take her seriously, from the “clown in a dress” stylings, via her wicked way with a side-eye and a swig of white wine, to the running joke about “my best friend” representing whichever minority she’s just dissed.

The Scots now face a potential quarter-final decider with hosts Japan on the final weekend of the group stage.Lesson one in the manual on how to beat Ireland is to cherish the ball.

Ease the chill by sowing for brighter days | James Wong
Poppies, radishes and spring onions – some of the cheerful flowers and veg you can plant nowI am not afraid to admit it. There are some plants that I have a troubled relationship with. While nerines and amaryllis are some of my very favourite garden flowers, for their ability to erupt like pastel pink fireworks from beneath the earth in September, their arrival is also unequivocal confirmation that the dark days of winter are just around the corner. Like that last quick dip in the ocean before catching your flight home from a summer holiday, for me it’s an emotional trigger that the months of sunshine and fun are over and only school and seriousness await.Fortunately, for us fair-weather gardeners, there are some plants you can spark into life right now, just as almost everything else slips into a slumber, providing you with a constant reminder of new things to come. Here are some of my favourite flower and veg seeds that you can sow in the autumn. Continue reading...

Breaking and Mending by Joanna Cannon review – clinical diagnosis
The bestselling novelist and former psychiatrist gives a compelling view of modern medicineBefore Joanna Cannon became a bestselling novelist with The Trouble With Goats and Sheep and Three Things About Elsie, she was a doctor specialising in psychiatry. In Breaking and Mending, she brings her literary talents to her previous career in a memoir brimming with her trademark compassion and psychological insight.In the opening chapter, Cannon sets out one of the core themes of the book, like the opening of a Bach prelude and fugue to which she will return in various ways throughout the following pages: “We imagine, strangely, that they [doctors] are invincible… [we] hold on to the belief that a doctor has the power to save us – and if they are unable to save themselves, what hope does it offer to anyone else?” Continue reading...

Think only authoritarian regimes spy on their citizens? | Kenan Malik
Use of AI surveillance technology is becoming the global norm, even in liberal democraciesAlmost half the world’s countries now deploy AI surveillance systems. So says a new report, The Global Expansion of AI Surveillance, from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Such technologies vary from “smart city” projects, which use real-time data on residents to aid delivery of public services and enhance policing, to facial recognition systems, to border security, to governments spying on political dissidents.The main driver is China. The tech company Huawei alone is responsible for providing AI surveillance technology to at least 50 countries. But it’s not just Beijing pushing such technology. Western companies, from IBM to Palantir, are deeply involved. In Saudi Arabia, for instance, Huawei is helping create smart cities, Google and Amazon are building cloud computing servers for government surveillance and the UK arms firm BAE is providing mass monitoring systems.

How to survive a Twitter storm
Tanya Gold published a piece about a plus-size mannequin one Sunday. By Monday morning the internet had gone mad and was out for her bloodIt was my fault. Sometimes I write glibly. I make an argument for myself and forget that people read it. It still surprises me, after 20 years of writing, to think that I have readers: that my internal monologue is out and about in the world. I do not think about them. If I did, I couldn’t write anything.In June, I wrote a piece about Nike’s obese mannequin, which was displayed at the London flagship shop to publicise Nike’s new willingness to sell clothes to overweight women. It makes me laugh now to think I insulted a mannequin – how, on that day in 2019, we came to discuss human rights for mannequins. I said it was a cynical doll from a cynical company that is no friend to women. I said that the normalisation of obesity frightens me, because I can see the outcome of addiction to sugar in myself. I said that the “fat acceptance” movement is an abyss of denial. I said the mannequin was “gargantuan” and “heaving with fat”. I said it might get diabetes – if it had flesh. I said that if it ran, it would ruin its inhuman knees. Continue reading...

Beyond borscht: a food tour of Russia
There’s much more to Russian cuisine than sour cream, beetroot and dill, as this culinary journey from St Petersburg to Moscow provesAt Taste to Eat, a contemporary restaurant with a distinctly SEO-unfriendly name in St Petersburg, I am about to plunge into a chicken kiev, its heart bursting with garlic. Over the past five days I have eaten hot pyshki doughnuts covered in sugar, scarfed down herring under fur coats, and gobbled barley porridge with blood sausage. I have looked askance at beef wobbling in grey-brown aspic. I’ve tasted mead and pickled mushrooms where you can practically taste the mud on the fingernails of the people who made them. I have had borscht (exceptional) and borscht (execrable) and borscht (middling). In tearing the pizza-like crust of a katchapuri and dipping it in its central egg and molten cheese vat, I have learned the joys of Georgian cuisine. Despite all this, I worry I am no closer to answering the question I set out to answer: what’s Russian food actually like?This is a culinary immersion into Russia organised by Intrepid, a travel company that likes its visitors to get under the skin of the destination. Clearly it is not without a sense of irony. After all, a Russian culinary tour sounds about as paradoxical as an English weather tour or, I suppose, an English culinary tour. Continue reading...

Golden toilets, golden arches. As for David Cameron... | David Mitchell
Like the thieves who stole the glittering khazi, our memoir-hawking former prime minister seems to have got off scot-freeLike most people, I enjoyed the news of the theft of that gold toilet. I’m glad the gold toilet exists (or existed) and I’m glad it was stolen. After all, if it hadn’t been stolen, I probably wouldn’t know it exists. I’m also glad it was stolen from Blenheim Palace, that colossally vulgar stately home, because it’s exactly the kind of place you imagine might have gold toilets.It only slightly spoils it that it doesn’t. The loos at Blenheim are, as far as I know, made from conventional materials. The gold loo, as well as being a loo, is a work of conceptual art and was part of an exhibition of other works of art that weren’t also loos, or also gold. So the gold loo wasn’t already there. Winston Churchill never s(h)at on it, though he was born just across the hall. On a non-gold bed, I regret to say. Continue reading...

St John’s College, Oxford library and study centre – a touch of mod in the quad
Reframing the idea of the academic library, Wright & Wright’s new addition to the college is a quiet triumph of artistry, invention and environmental responsibilityComposed of a historic patchwork of colleges, Oxford is a unique urban ecosystem. Its basic building block is the quad, a hangover from the medieval era when learning was conducted in monasteries. College chapels and dining halls with their associated rituals are similarly beholden. “Eat, pray, study” was Oxford’s original raison d’être. Within this network, St John’s College, founded in 1555, is one of the more powerful players, both academically and fiscally. It was said that you could walk from Oxford to London on land owned by St John’s. Alumni include Philip Larkin, Kingsley Amis and Tony Blair.Typical of Oxford colleges, St John’s evolved slowly and incrementally, to the point where it now contains a neat potted history of English architecture from the 16th century to the present day. The impetus to shape and express the college’s sense of identity through its buildings has spawned a catholic assemblage that encompasses such strange bedfellows as the luxuriantly baroque concerto of Canterbury Quadrangle, built by William Laud, the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury under Charles I, who fell foul of the treacherous currents of Jacobean politics and was executed in 1645, and the conspicuously modernist Beehive building, which has a literal (and radical) honeycomb plan. Designed in 1960 by Michael Powers of the Architects’ Co-Partnership, it was the first genuinely modern building to be constructed by any Oxford college and move away from the popular perception that the place is preserved in aspic.

Russell Tovey: ‘Art is for everyone. It will change you, it will outlive you’
Contemporary art is the actor’s passion. As he curates a festival in Margate to celebrate the Turner prize, he discusses his collection, his podcast - and advising James Corden on what to buy Cor, Russell Tovey’s apartment is gorgeous! A New York-style warehouse-style place, with wooden floors, big windows at front and back, two light-filled bedrooms and enough space in the living-dining-hanging-out area for an army of cool cats to swing. But it’s not the flat itself that dazzles, fabulous though it is. It’s the art.As soon as you walk in, you notice it. On every wall there are canvases – huge, brightly coloured abstracts, delicate etchings, cartoon-like figures in spray paint and oils. Sculptures nestle in alcoves or stand proud on tables. One piece – a chair in the guest bedroom by Jessi Reaves – is only recognisable as art because it’s so tatty when compared to the rest of the furnishings. (“Most of my friends hate that one,” Tovey laughs. “They think it looks like it was found in a skip.”) How much art does he own? He counts up in his head: “About 250 pieces,” he says. A lot of it is in storage. Continue reading...
