The real scandal behind Britain’s falling life expectancy | Lucinda Hiam and Martin McKee
The health gap between rich and poor is an issue the Tory leadership candidates seem happy to overlookGiven the frenzied speculation about who will be the next leader of the Conservative party and thus prime minister, it was understandable that other news would get far less attention. Last week it was reported that the infant mortality rate (IMR) in England and Wales had worsened, for the third year in a row.The report from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), covering 2017, said that “the infant mortality rate increased to 3.9 deaths per 1,000 live births compared with 3.8 in 2016”. In 2014, it was 3.6 deaths per 1,000. The situation had been improving steadily until 2014, when it went into reverse. This should not be happening, especially in one of the largest economies in the world. Alarmingly, when declines such as this have occurred elsewhere, for example in the Soviet Union in the 1980s, it has been an early marker of severe problems in society. But while these figures are sufficiently concerning in their own right, they are national averages and the situation is even worse in some places. In the most deprived areas of England, babies were more than twice as likely to die within the first year of life (5.2 deaths per 1,000 live births) than those in the least deprived areas (2.7 deaths per 1,000 live births). Equally concerning, the UK now lags well behind many other European countries, with 24 nations achieving better rates out of the 42 with available data for 2017. Continue reading...

'We're afraid': the queer Brazilian sex artists targeted by Bolsonaro
After the far-right president tweeted a video of their transgressive street performance, the two artists fled São Paulo – but now they’re pushing back‘Queer people have been afraid since the president was elected,” says Paulx Castello. “He has been demonising us from the start – but this was different. Here we were personally under attack.” The artist, who has a mohican, is now instantly recognisable to most Brazilians. In March, he featured in a sexually explicit video that was tweeted by Jair Bolsonaro, the country’s far-right president. The 40-second clip, filmed at a gay street party during the São Paulo carnival, showed Castello standing on a taxi shelter, exposing his backside and being urinated on.“I don’t feel comfortable showing it,” Bolsonaro told his 3.5 million followers, “but we have to expose the truth so the population are aware of their priorities. This is what Brazilian carnival street parties have turned into.” The next day, the far-right leader stayed on the offensive, tweeting: “What is a golden shower?” Continue reading...

The watercolour flower cotton flat sheet from Zara Home, to be precise.“I have been looking for a hydrangea print for years,” she told reporters.

US election security: still a dumpster fire
Securing Our Cyber Future, Stanford Cyber Policy Center's new report on election security, depicts a US electoral system whose glaring vulnerabilities are still in place, three years after the chaos of the 2016 elections. It's not all terrible: digital-only voting machines are dwindling away, with the majority of voting machines delivering a voter-verified paper ballot that can be manually recounted by auditors or if there is a question of fraud or malfunction, but there are still plenty of digital-only systems in the field, and across the board, voting machines are aging, error- and fault-prone, and generally insecure, with vendors who would prefer to bluster and threaten critics than fix their products. There's some progress on eliminating the voting-machine business altogether, with a free/open source system emerging from Los Angeles County's election authorities -- LA County is a national leader in election security and inclusiveness, with an 11-day voting window, available paper ballots for all, and a slate of accessibility features in its machines. But LA County is an exception, and between the poor-quality systems in place nationwide, intransigence from Senate Republicans on allocating funds for election security, and the diplomatic chaos that has failed to produce any international norms on election meddling, 2020 is looking like a potential shitshow to put 2016 to shame. Replacing insecure and aging voting machines around the country, introducing post-election audits in the dozens of states that don’t yet have them, shoring up election network defenses, and expanding security personnel all take money. And while independent, locally adjudicated elections are a cornerstone of US democracy, researchers say that federal funding is still badly needed to make sure all election systems around the country have high-caliber security defenses in place.

What if the Clippers don’t actually have a bright future after all?
The overwhelming optimism about the Clippers’ future ignores just how precarious that future actually is. So many of the communal narratives attached to NBA franchises are tied to subjective but universal specifications on what teams ought to do. Consider the Los Angeles Clippers, who disintegrated a flawed contender and built around hungry players to stay afloat. The Clippers of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin were sometimes feared, but more frequently mocked for falling short. The residual Clippers are beloved and beknighted by many neutral parties as a franchise built around the right qualities: toughness, work ethic, hunger. In unrelated news, the latter Clippers are much less imposing on the court than the earlier edition. Since letting CP3 go and trading Griffin in a particularly cold deal within months of convincing him to be their forever star, the Clippers have quote-unquote “done things the right way.” Because of that, and because Kawhi Leonard has been rumored as a sensible target given his Southern California history and potential future, the franchise has been seen as having a bright tomorrow. But what if they don’t? What if Leonard stays with the NBA champion Toronto Raptors, as rumors now suggest he might? What if Patrick Beverley, the team’s bulldog spirit animal and starting point guard, moves on in free agency as the Clippers chase bigger game? What if Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and all of the other big names turn away from L.A.’s step-sister team? What if the Clippers come up empty in 2019 and get leapfrogged by the hated Lakers and the young, exciting Kings in the standings next season? What if this is as good as this version of the Clippers get? It’s happened before. Eleven years ago, the Clippers were three years removed from a thrilling playoff run — their first in a decade — and looking to put a true star next to 29-year-old, two-time All Star (and free agent) Elton Brand. (No offense to Chris Kaman or Corey Maggette, the latter of whom was way better than most people remember and would have been a hero of the analytic age.) Brand had missed basically all of 2007-08 with an Achilles injury. Meanwhile Baron Davis, an L.A. native, had led the We Believe! Warriors to their best record in ages, but Golden State missed out on the 2008 playoffs due to wild West quality. (Sound familiar?) Davis had a massive player option, but was expected to return to the Warriors. Just before free agency began on July 1, 2008 — literally hours before — word spread that Davis was not opting in and would join Brand with the Clippers, signaling the rise of L.A.’s second team. Except Brand wasn’t all of the way on board, and soon signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Clippers’ grand plans developed and went poof within a couple hours. Davis ended up stranded in L.A. with a bad team, and L.A. ended up stranded with Davis. The Clippers lost their season opener against the Lakers by 38 points and finished 19-63, bad enough to land Blake Griffin in the lottery. They stayed bad for a few more years, even winning the No. 1 pick again in 2011. Bad news: they’d traded that pick, which became Kyrie Irving, unprotected to the Cavaliers to move off Davis’ contract (whoops!). Eventually, Basketball Reasons brought them Chris Paul and glory. 2019 isn’t a close match to the Clippers’ 2008. The team is better and better managed, and there’s no real star on the team to get worried about. That’s both a blessing and a curse. Because there’s no star, every piece feels essential (hence the worry about Beverley’s wanderlust), and there’s fear an established star won’t want to compete in the West without a fellow All-NBA player. But because there’s no central star, the organization doesn’t feel like a teetering tower reliant on the stability of a single brick. If expectations are set properly, there’s a lot to look forward to in L.A. even if Kawhi stays north. But there’s no indication that expectations are being set properly. In fairness to franchisee Steve Ballmer, when you spend $2 billion on a basketball team, you should be excitable. You just don’t want to disappoint fans who have bought the narrative that the Clippers are a franchise on the rise. Because in the end, whether the Clippers are a near-term contender depends less on the accepted narrative that the front office has done a solid job grinding through a multi-year retooling while remaining competitive. The fate of the Clippers, and every team, depends a whole lot more on the whims of mercenary superstars. Good luck.
