Changes will be made as Mets’ season and fight slip away
ATLANTA — The Mets’ Now or Never Tour got off to a pathetic start. No surprise there. These Mets don’t deserve to be on the same field as the Braves. At this rate, there will be lots of changes in player personnel for these much-less-than-mediocre Mets. Team management stood their ground and kept core players...

Ireland’s big five adventure challenge
Beyond the blarney of the Kerry tourist trail, the Reeks District is pitching itself as the country’s adventure playground, with five outdoor activities on offerHalfway through cycling the Ring of the Reeks in Kerry, I realise I am going to make it. Not just the circuit’s full 90km but also the tourist board’s Big Five Challenge, which was launched this month.I started my mission three days earlier with a seven-hour trek to the top of Ireland’s highest peak, 1,039-metre Carrauntoohil in MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, the range of mountains I’m now encircling by bike. The following day’s action included surfing on Inch Beach, kayaking for 6km across Caragh Lake, and night-time paddleboarding on Cloon Lough in Kerry’s Dark Sky Reserve. Today’s ride includes 1,350 metres of climbing over three of Ireland’s highest mountain passes. Continue reading...

Ministers reject charge of 1p an item to clean up fast fashion
Government backs voluntary measures for clothing industry despite environmental costs Ministers have rejected recommendations from MPs to clean up the huge environmental impact of fast fashion, which sees 300,000 tonnes of clothing burned or buried in the UK every year.MPs on the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) said a charge of 1p for each garment was urgently needed to raise £35m a year for better clothing collection and sorting, a move supported by many in the industry. But the government’s response, published on Tuesday, failed to commit to this, stating only that it could be considered by 2025. Continue reading...

How we made Sub Sub's Ain’t No Love (Ain’t No Use)
‘There is a well-known sample on there – really well known – but I’m not going to say what it is in case someone comes after us’Me and my twin brother Jez used to go to this fair when we were 13. One day I won a prize – a record – and we were chased back to the train station by some locals who didn’t like us being there. I played it when I got home, thought it was crap and stuck it at the back of my collection, never to be seen again. It was a version of Hair – not the official soundtrack but music inspired by the film of the musical. It was pretty dreadful. Continue reading...

Future shock: why Years and Years is 2019's most terrifying TV show
By following one family over the course of the next 15 years, Russell T Davies’ powerful drama offers up a chilling forecast of where our country might be headingWith the finale of Years and Years approaching, how might the story end? Will Viv Rook, the populist prime minister of 2029, succeed in disappearing every refugee and member of the working class? Will radical activist Edith Lyons stop Rook in her tracks, succumb to radiation poisoning, or do both at the same time? Will Edith’s no-good brother Stephen discover a conscience, or at least get some colour in his cheeks? And as for Stephen’s daughter, Bethany, whose brain has been plugged into the internet by the Home Office; will her Three-Eyed Raven-style powers solve the problems of humanity, or at least help us switch energy providers?We soon shall see. A six-part drama by Russell T Davies, Years and Years is a bold mashup of at least three different genres – kitchen sink drama, near future sci-fi and state-of-the-nation polemic – and it has juggled the requirements of each form effectively. You care about the characters, believe in the futuristic inventions (such as “the blink”, a stick that disrupts wireless communications) and recognise the political tensions that pit parts of the Lyons family against each other. Furthermore, it’s all done with a lightness of touch that stops you from dwelling too long on any less convincing aspects (why did Daniel get on that boat?). Continue reading...

Church in bellwether Florida county preaches love and organizing for 2020

It read: “We Choose Love.”The voters of Pinellas county, the biggest and most significant swing county in Florida, had just helped Trump into the White House after backing Barack Obama in two straight elections, and as the day wore on, Oliver’s parishioners joined him in the street with signs echoing his message.

Eskilstuna: how a Swedish town became the world capital of recycling
The city was dying. Then somebody had a great idea to save it – make it the greenest place on Earth‘People talk about Eskilstuna as the place where nothing new is invented,” says the shopping mall manager Anna Bergström. An hour’s train ride from Stockholm, the “Sheffield of Sweden” has had something of an image problem in recent years. Once a steel-producing powerhouse, the town has fallen on hard times, thanks to the rapid decline in the industry throughout the 1970s. It now has an unemployment rate that is almost double the national average of 8%.But the town has come up with an answer: recycling. Far from the Scandinavian stereotype of glossy modernity, Eskilstuna’s wide-paved, near-deserted grey streets are populated by kitsch 1980s pizzerias, workers’ cafes and gloomy pubs – not a place where you would expect to find such a radical approach to the environment. Yet since 2012, Eskilstuna has implemented a spate of green initiatives, vying to make it the most environmentally friendly city in Sweden – and perhaps the world. Public buses and cars are run on biogas and electricity, and the town uses low-carbon combined heat and power plants, which use the thermal energy from electricity production to heat water. Residents sort their waste into seven multicoloured categories at home – green for food, pink for textiles, grey for metal, yellow for paper, blue for newspaper, orange for plastic and black for mixed – and for the past four years people have been able to drop off their unwanted goods for recycling at Bergström’s secondhand mall.

‘The Saudis couldn’t do it without us’: the UK’s true role in Yemen’s deadly war
Britain does not merely supply the bombs that fall on Yemen – it provides the personnel and expertise that keep the war going. But is the government breaking the law? By Arron MeratFor more than four years, a brutal Saudi air campaign has bombarded Yemen, killing tens of thousands, injuring hundreds of thousands and displacing millions – creating the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. And British weapons are doing much of the killing. Every day Yemen is hit by British bombs – dropped by British planes that are flown by British-trained pilots and maintained and prepared inside Saudi Arabia by thousands of British contractors.The Saudi-led military coalition, which includes the UAE, Bahrain and Kuwait, has “targeted civilians … in a widespread and systematic manner”, according to the UN – dropping bombs on hospitals, schools, weddings, funerals and even camps for displaced people fleeing the bombing.

Wacom releases rechargeable Bamboo Ink Plus for Windows 10 tablets
Wacom is releasing a new stylus for pen-enabled Windows 10 PCs that adds tilt support and a rechargeable battery. The new stylus, the Bamboo Ink Plus, supports both the Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP) and the Wacom Active ElectroStatic (AES) protocol, meaning the stylus is compatible with devices from the MPP-supported Microsoft Surface laptops to the AES-supported Lenovo Thinkpad series of tablets. Users can switch to different protocols easily by holding both side buttons. Unlike the previous Bamboo Ink, which required hard-to-find AAAA batteries, the Ink Plus is rechargeable via USB. Like the previous model, the Plus also has three different fine nibs (soft, medium, and firm), and has a triangular barrel which some artists find more ergonomic. The Bamboo Ink Plus retails for $99.95, and is available now at Best Buy, Microsoft stores, and wacom.com.
