After six deaths in the US and bans around the world – is vaping safe?
In Britain, e-cigarettes are seen as central to the fight against smoking, but many experts believe the evidence is contradictoryIn politically fractious times, vaping has achieved the impossible. It has morphed into a common enemy for those at opposite ends of the political spectrum.Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, pledged that his foundation will spend $160m fighting youth vaping, while Donald Trump has unveiled plans for a ban on flavoured e-cigarettes to protect, as he put it, “innocent children”.

How Sunday lunch at nan’s led to a vegan’s battle against the climate crisis
Animal Rebellion’s actions highlight the impact of meat eating on the planet’s futureIn 1991, 17-year-old Alex Lockwood was flipping through the Guardian Weekend magazine in his family’s car, en route to a family Sunday roast, when he spotted an image that changed his life. A harpooned whale, its body bloodied and lifeless, drew him to a feature about its killing.“That picture just shook me; it seemed so wrong. When I got to my nan’s house it hit me that the roast on the table was an animal that had also been killed.” He became vegetarian, then vegan, and nearly three decades later is one of the founding members of Extinction Rebellion’s new sister organisation, Animal Rebellion, which formed in June and plans to blockade London’s Smithfield Market – Britain’s largest meat distribution market – in October.

As the kids go back to school, let’s all take the chance to refresh
It’s that moment in the year, things are moving on, time to turn a page in life’s new notebookThree little words that every adult longs to hear: back to school. Words infused with possibility, fear and the smell of strawberry rubbers, they perform a kind of time-machine spell, almost entirely dissociated from a parent’s reality of the new autumn term. Rather than simply a period in which Tesco does a decent two-for-one deal on notebooks, “back to school” is an existential obsession. Without wanting to sound like an ageing cheerleader caked in nostalgia, this time of year has started to inspire in me a kind of yearning for a grown-up equivalent, an opportunity to return, refreshed, and start again.To bin the uniforms we’ve grown out of, in my case dresses that, instead of making me look cheery and smart, on a body reshaped by time’s mean claw, give me the appearance of Nicholas Lyndhurst dragging up for a Goodnight Sweetheart special. To replace them with new ones suitable for a new term. A chance to look closely at oneself, a year older, and consider who you want to be. Continue reading...

The games industry shouldn’t be ripping off children | Geraldine Bedell
The young must be protected from being exploited by online platformsLast week, MPs called on the government to classify online loot boxes as gambling and in the process highlighted a scandal: the $137.9bn (£110bn) gaming industry makes much of its profit by ripping off children. Young people are being nudged, enticed and coerced not only to carry on playing but also paying.Loot boxes – mystery objects in virtual treasure chests that players pay to open – resemble nothing so much as a lottery. Gamers spent $30bn on them worldwide in 2018, a figure that has been predicted to rise to $50bn in the next five years. Continue reading...

Fiona Bruce on 40 years of Question Time: 'it's where the reality confronts the rhetoric'
The BBC panel show now causes as much debate as it hosts, accused of bias by all sides. Presenter Fiona Bruce still has hope for the futureQuestion Time turns 40 at the end of this month. The BBC institution is not immune to that birthday’s particular mix of crisis and denial. While the programme’s 25th year was marked with affectionate celebration and nostalgic retrospectives, this time around there will be little fanfare. Mostly, you imagine, like many of us who have experienced that midlife milestone, the show would ideally like to take to its bed in a darkened room to fret about its blood pressure and its sell-by date, and to relive those golden years before any red-faced audience member ever yelled the words “no deal” or “confirmatory vote” or “the Irish backstop”.For those who hold to the idea that politics and journalism should be more about listening than lecturing, more about informed doubt than angry certainty, Question Time has for a long while been an uncomfortable watch. Since the redoubtable charmer David Dimbleby finally threw in the towel after 25 years, aged 80, in December, the hottest seat in British broadcasting has belonged to Fiona Bruce, who maintains a measure of order with a mixture of good humour and exasperation and that judiciously raised eyebrow. Her early outings on the show were praised for their briskness and confidence. As this long year has worn on, however, she has, like the rest of us, looked a little more beleaguered. She was not 20 minutes into the first show after the summer break before she was calling a time-out to the partisan bickering: “We are better than this.” Most evidence in the current public square suggests that we are not.

Then came the bereaved family and Mugabe’s successor, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, followed by foreign dignitaries, before a small crowd of ministers and officials from the ruling Zanu-PF party.

As Jesy Nelson revealed, fame is no defence against toxic online attacks
In choosing to engage with social media, trolling victims fuel a poisonous narrativeThe recent documentary from Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson, Odd One Out, should be placed in a time capsule to show future generations the pain of being a young 21st-century woman dealing with cyberbullying. While social media is a key promotional tool of the pop industry, and fame has a price, this doesn’t excuse the way that Nelson was tortured about her looks and weight. Still, her experience usefully demonstrates how young people – even famous, successful ones – can be tricked into tending their own online misery.There’s nothing original about casual cruelty but these days, it’s turbo-boosted by social media platforms that allow people to unleash darkness, then pop out for a pizza as though nothing has happened. It’s not the spite that’s new – it’s the ease of it, the grotesque lack of accountability. Continue reading...

David Cameron’s self-indulgent sorrow doesn’t excuse his cowardice | Will Hutton
The former PM fails to acknowledge that he allowed the Tory party’s ultra right to railroad him into a referendum that did not have to be heldMr Cameron does not know his own country. His apology for “the uncertainty and division that followed” the referendum result is an attempt to keep alive the fiction that it had to be called – only its conduct was mistaken. Wrong. There was no widespread call for a renegotiated relationship with the EU in the country in 2013 when he made his fateful decision. There was only a problem of Tory party management.The needless pain inflicted by severe cuts, along with the reaction to immigration, was always going to make it a hard referendum to win. The ground had to be carefully laid, the referendum carefully framed and a compelling cross-party campaign organised. None of that happened. And too little of that is recognised by our wounded, self-indulgently sorrowful ex-PM. Continue reading...

Villanelle designer unveils dresses to die for
Molly Goddard hit the bullseye when the Killing Eve character wore her creations. Her London Fashion Week show displays her talentMolly Goddard is perhaps the first designer in fashion history to find fame by dressing a psychopath. The frothy, bubblegum-pink dress that became synonymous with the character of Villanelle, played by Jodie Comer in Killing Eve, rocketed Goddard from the ranks of promising young British design talent to become a major fashion player.Villanelle struck again at London fashion week on Saturday. Goddard’s 10th collection, shown to a packed house in an art deco leisure centre in central London, gave the fashion crowd more of the voluminous, highlighter-bright dresses which Goddard has made into a phenomenon, and closed with model Edie Campbell wearing a billowing taffeta fuchsia cloud-gown. This season’s Molly Goddard woman is, as always, uninhibited and overdressed. She wears smocked tulle, puffball taffeta or ribbon-gathered calico. With its jelly baby palette and off-kilter silhouette, the look is a riot of deliberately mixed messages. Think Comme des Garcons’ Japanese avant-garde chic crossed with Bonpoint’s deliciously French upscale childrenswear. Continue reading...

Tim Walker: ‘There’s an extremity to my interest in beauty’
Tim Walker’s glossy, dreamily surreal work has dominated fashion photography for two decades. On the eve of a rare show at the V&A, he talks about inspiration, not working too hard and how he was once sacked by Richard AvedonIt’s 1995 and supermodels are not getting out of bed for less than $10,000. In Richard Avedon’s studio, a converted fire station on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Nadja Auermann and Kristen McMenamy are being shot for the new Versace campaign. Both “supes” are almost 6ft, and their hair has been teased upwards, like a skyline, to add another couple of inches. Their frocks and suits are bold, body-conscious, all shoulders and boobs: the acme of power dressing. Avedon – whom everyone calls “Dick” – sets his large- format, 10x8in plate camera low, shooting upwards, making Auermann and McMenamy seem even more like Amazonian deities.In the background, meanwhile, a skinny, somewhat pasty Englishman, not quite 25, looks on. He is Avedon’s fourth assistant, meaning he defers not only to the photographer but to a third assistant, a second assistant and a studio manager. His main responsibilities are changing light bulbs, emptying wastepaper bins, getting food for everyone. He’s shy and a little dreamy, but he is noticing everything. Continue reading...

Against very familiar rivals, Jo Swinson will be the wild card of the election | Andrew Rawnsley
The latest defection to their ranks will embolden optimistic Lib Dems to think that we are on the verge of a big realignmentDavid Steel once told a Liberal conference to “go away and prepare for government”. They went away and remained in opposition. Vince Cable once said that he could imagine himself becoming prime minister. Which is where that idea stayed: in his imagination. Nick Clegg did take them into government during the coalition years, an experience that ended with the Lib Dems losing all but eight of the 57 MPs they started with five years earlier.So they have had fair warning about the perils of dreaming of breakthroughs. They usually don’t come true. On the rare occasions when they do, the consequences for the party can be terrible. But dream they always will and never more so than now. Continue reading...

Drone attacks on Saudi plant could hit global oil supplies
Explosions halve Saudi output and reduce global production by 5%Global supplies of oil are likely to suffer a “major jolt” following Saturday’s attack by a swarm of explosive drones on the world’s biggest oil processing plant in Saudia Arabia.Major fires engulfed the Abqaiq processing facility and the Khurais oil field after the attack, for which Houthi rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility. They said they launched 10 drones with “intelligence cooperation from people inside Saudi Arabia”, according to the rebel-run Saba news agency. The rebels’ spokesman Yahya Saree said their operations “will expand and would be more painful as long as the Saudi regime continues its aggression and blockade” on Yemen, he said.The fires are now under control at both facilities, Saudi state media said.

Without missing a beat, Anna replies “$15m”, the actual amount Roberts was paid to do the movie, a rare example of when an actress has earned more than her male counterpart – in this case, Hugh Grant.
