Every year, I take a long walk with friends. it's one of life's greatest pleasures | Marcel Theroux
Sat, 12 Jun 2021 06:00:23 GMT

For 16 years, I have met up with five friends for an annual yomp in the English countryside – and we are enjoying that companionship more than ever

On the first weekend of May this year, I met up with five of my oldest male friends at Waterloo station, took a train to Milford in Surrey, walked 12 miles across Bagmoor Common and the Devil’s Punch Bowl, stopped for lunch at The Three Horseshoes in Thursley, caught the train back to London from Haslemere, drank too much beer under an awning on the South Bank and went home. At the end of the day, the step counter on my phone said 42,235.

For the past 16 years, we’ve been doing something similar roughly every year. When we inaugurated this accidental tradition, smartphones weren’t a thing, Tony Blair was still prime minister and my friends had much more hair. The first walk we did was a three-day ramble along the Coleridge Way in Somerset and north Devon. It was a fantastic route: 50 miles of moorland and rolling hills. But at the time, there was still a faint air of incredulity about what we were doing. Going walking seemed like an absurdly grown-up activity.

Andy Murray: ‘Don’t be sad for me! I like doing this – no one’s forcing me to play’
Sat, 12 Jun 2021 07:00:25 GMT

It’s been a tumultuous five years for Andy Murray: countless injuries, a new metal hip, four children and a bout of Covid. Can the former world No 1 really battle his way back to brilliance at Wimbledon?

Is he or isn’t he? One minute Andy Murray, one of Britain’s greatest living athletes, tells me he’ll be back on the court at Wimbledon this month, playing well in the tournament that made his name. And the next, he doesn’t sound so sure. “The test is being on court with the best players,” he says in a break in training, “and that’s something that, right this second, is difficult to give a definitive answer to.”

The joy of sport is its unpredictability, but Murray’s not talking about that. His body has been through such immense stress and strain – throughout his career, but especially over the past few years – that he can’t rely on it. He genuinely doesn’t know what it can do.

What Naomi Osaka's French Open withdrawal means for tennis – video explainer
Fri, 04 Jun 2021 08:02:56 GMT

There is growing pressure on tennis authorities and the conduct of grand slam tournaments after world No 2 Naomi Osaka withdrew from Roland Garros following a fallout over her choice not to conduct her media obligations, which she says was an effort to preserve her mental wellbeing.

The Guardian’s Tumaini Carayol says the heavy-handed statement and response from the French Open to the 23-year-old’s decision marks a ‘shameful moment for tennis’. He explains how we got here, looks back at press conference controversies in tennis and examines what could come next

‘Americans are heaven for us’: the surge in US visitors throwing Greece a lifeline
Sat, 12 Jun 2021 19:00:38 GMT

Country confounds post-Covid predictions as transatlantic holidaymakers flood in ready to spend

A fresh wind blows down Adrianou. Seated in front of his rug store on the street that cuts through the heart of ancient Athens, Theo Iliadis takes in the scene. At 47, the owner of The Loom has seen “a lot of bad stuff” in recent years. The global pandemic couldn’t have come at a worse time for Greece, already gutted by prolonged economic crisis.

But barely a month after the tourist-dependent country opened its doors, the entrepreneur is in ebullient mood. There’s a glint in his eye and a lightness in the air of the carpet-stacked cavern behind him. “Americans are in town,” he smiles. “Business is good, The Loom is good and I’ve got drinks on ice.”

Global leaders arriving in Cornwall for the G7 summit have already found themselves in a changed world: masks and social distancing have replaced the usual hugs, handshakes and cheek-pecking, the entourages have slimmed down, and the usual media circus has been muted, with protesters having to content themselves with writing sand messages on the beach.

(Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) Acoustic waves in gases, liquids, and solids usually travel at an almost constant speed of sound. Rotons are an exception: their speed of sound changes significantly with the wavelength, it is also possible that the waves travel backwards. Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology are studying the possibilities of using rotons in artificial materials. These metamaterials might be used in the future to manipulate or direct sound in ways that have never been possible before.

Mission Alpha liftoff

Video: 00:04:13

Liftoff of the Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft with ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet, NASA astronauts Megan McArthur and Shane Kimbrough, and Japanese astronaut Aki Hoshide. The Crew-2 spend around 24 hours travelling to the International Space Station. The rocket lifted off at 11:49 on 23 April 2021 from Launchpad 39A in Cape Canaveral at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA.

Thomas is the first ESA astronaut to fly in space in a vehicle other than the Russian Soyuz or the US Space Shuttle, and the first ESA astronaut to leave Earth from Florida, USA, in over a decade. This is his second flight, his first mission called Proxima saw Thomas fly to the Space Station on a Soyuz from Baikonur in Kazakhstan and his Expedition broke records for amount of hours spent on research at the time.

Thomas’ second mission to the International Space Station is called Alpha. This is after Alpha Centauri, the closest stellar system to Earth, following the French tradition to name space missions after stars or constellations.

Over 200 experiments are planned during Thomas’s time in space, with 40 European ones and 12 new experiments led by France’s space agency CNES.

New Zealand’s campaign finance laws are broken. That can have enormous consequences | Pete McKenzie
Sat, 12 Jun 2021 20:00:40 GMT

An increased appetite for political donations strengthens the political influence of the wealthiest New Zealanders

The spokesperson for Aotearoa New Zealand’s Green party was genuinely surprised. She had called after I informed them that a major donor to their 2020 election campaign had subsequently pleaded guilty to animal neglect. The spokesperson said the Greens had not known about the neglect when they took her money.

They nevertheless refused to donate it onwards. They argued the Incorporated Societies Act required them to hold on to it. As I later found out, that’s not quite true: returning the donation, or donating it to an organisation like the SPCA, seems to be possible according to their party’s charter.

Gold futures settle at lowest in over a week
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 17:39:26 GMT

Gold futures posted losses for the session, as well as the week, on Friday, marking their lowest settlement in more than a week as strength in the U.S. dollar dulled investment demand for the precious metal. "Gold still has a lot going for it, but trade leading up to the FOMC decision [on Wednesday] could see prices settle between the $1,870 to $1,900 trading range," said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at Oanda. August gold fell $16.80, or 0.9%, to settle at $1,879.60 an ounce, the lowest most-active contract finish since June 3, FactSet data show. For the week, prices lost about 0.7%.

Gold futures settles higher for a second session

Gold futures climbed Thursday to notch a second straight session gain. Gold "found good support after the initial dip in reaction to the hotter inflation data than expected," said Fawad Razaqzada, market analyst at ThinkMarkets. It looks like gold investors agree with the Federal Reserve's narrative that "inflation will cool down in the months ahead, which means low rates for longer," he said. August gold edged up by 90 cents, or nearly 0.1%, to settle at $1,896.40 an ounce.

The revelation last week that the 25 richest US billionaires have paid very little tax even as their fortunes have soared has reignited demands for wealth taxes on both sides of the Atlantic.

An unprecedented leak of “a vast trove” of 15 years of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) data to the investigative news site ProPublica has provided a staggering insight into the legal strategies the very rich deploy to avoid tax.

IM Cannabis stock rallies toward an 8-day win streak after bullish analyst call
Thu, 10 Jun 2021 18:10:50 GMT

The U.S.-listed shares of IM Cannabis Corp. rallied 3.2% in afternoon trading Thursday, putting them on track for an eighth straight gain, after a bullish call from Alliance Global Partners analyst Aaron Grey, saying the Israel-based cannabis company is an "international play" on legal cannabis. The stock, on track to close at a five-week high, has run up 36.86% during its win streak. Grey initiated coverage of the company with at buy rating and stock price target of $10, which is about 66% above current levels. He said he believes IM Cannabis is "particularly well positioned" to benefit from the growing Israeli medical cannabis market. "Additionally, we look for [IM Cannabis] to grow its business in the German medical market, with recent acquisitions positioning it in Canada's premium segment (and allowing for exports, in time)." The stock is rallying despite broad weakness in the cannabis sector, as the Cannabis ETF dropped 1.7% with 26 of 32 equity components losing ground. Year to date, IM Cannabis shares have slumped 22.9% while the Cannabis ETF has soared 42.0% and the S&P 500 has gained 13.0%.

Last chance to reverse the UK’s shameful international aid cuts | Letters

World leaders are meeting this weekend a few miles from my home in Penzance, Cornwall, in what could be our best and last chance to reverse the UK’s destructive aid cuts that followed the Foreign Office takeover of the Department for International Development last year.

Up to March of this year, I was proud to work for DfID, having spent many years supporting health systems and confronting disease in some of the most challenging settings in the world. Most recently, I was senior health adviser in Malawi, one of the world’s poorest countries, where our support was vital to confronting Covid-19 and ensuring women can access reproductive health services. The shameful and heartbreaking prospect of having to dismantle this vital support led me to resign and seek more worthwhile employment elsewhere.

I’d like to make a complaint... Why some of us are so good at making a fuss

Were you the child whose indignant letter yielded a free bar of chocolate? Séamas O’Reilly puts pen to paper to reveal why we are a nation of complainers

The biscuit was only barely covered. If I’d had to guess, I’d have said 30% of its surface had chocolate applied, and that’s being charitable. Certainly more charitable than the manufacturer of the Jaffa Cake in question, who I pictured as God’s perfect miser; a Scrooge-like figure toiling in a candle-lit factory, peering over their bifocals to smear homeopathic levels of chocolate on one sorry corner of my favourite tea snack. I was 10 years old, and had never had a particularly strong sense of myself as a consumer champion, but this biscuit, this disgrace, roused something inside me.

“Dear McVitie’s,” I wrote, addressing the entire company in my missive. “I was shocked and appalled to discover this Jaffa Cake (enclosed) in such a state.” In hindsight, I was savvy enough to moderate my speech to sound adult, but not perhaps worldly enough to consider enclosing the foodstuff itself in plastic before popping it in with my letter. By the time I posted it the following day, I remember already noticing some of its soft greasiness had permeated the envelope, but I reckoned this was probably just the way things were done. Evidently it was, as two weeks later I received a letter apologising for my suboptimal experience, along with an invitation to tour a factory, and two whole boxes of Jaffa Cakes. These, I am happy to report, were perfectly chocolated.

Dog daycare: who will look after your pet when you go in to work?
Sat, 12 Jun 2021 08:00:26 GMT

Dogs became used to owners being around more in Covid lockdowns but there are ways to make being apart easier and cheaper

Over the past year, dogs have provided locked-down owners with comfort, company and a reason to head out for long restorative walks. There are 12 million of them in the UK, according to data from the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association. And because of the coronavirus pandemic, a whole generation of puppies have never spent any time alone, while older dogs have got used to always having someone around. Now that we can leave the house again, that may be about to change.

“Our biggest concern as people start returning to work outside the home is that pets will need to adapt to a very different routine and may experience some anxiety around being separated from the owners they’ve spent every day with during lockdown,” says Daniella Dos Santos, a vet and the senior vice-president of the British Veterinary Association. “Owners should spend time gradually getting pets used to being left alone or in different settings and make sure these experiences are positive.”

Natural-gas futures settle at highest since October; U.S. oil prices post a rally for the week
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 18:55:46 GMT

Natural-gas futures rallied on Friday, buoyed by warmer weather forecasts that are likely to boost demand for the commodity from power generators. "Demand is variable, with low load demand expected to persist through the weekend amid milder conditions, but then reverse higher next week with the return of hotter conditions," said Marshall Steeves, energy markets analyst at IHS Markit. July natural gas rose 15 cents, or 4.7%, to settle at nearly $3.30 per million British thermal units. That was the highest front-month contract settlement since Oct. 30 of last year. Prices rose about 6.4% for the week, FactSet data show. U.S. oil futures, meanwhile, posted gains for the session, ending the week roughly 7% higher after the IEA forecast a return to pre-COVID global oil demand levels by the end of next year. July West Texas Intermediate crude rose 62 cents, or 0.9%, to settle at $70.91 a barrel, the highest finish since October 2018. For the week, prices gained nearly 1.9%.

Biogen stock heads for biggest weekly rally in more than 2 decades, UBS analyst targets more gains
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 18:27:28 GMT

Shares of Biogen Inc. dropped 4.1% in afternoon trading Friday, to pull back from a six-year high, but UBS analyst Colin Bristow seems room for further gains to a record close. Even with the pullback, the stock has rocketed 39.0% this week, which would be the biggest weekly gain since it ran up 56.3% during the week ending Dec. 23, 1999, after the Food and Drug Administration approved the biotechnology company's Alzheimer's drug, Aduhelm. Bristow upgraded Biogen to buy from neutral, saying "like it or not, Aduhelm is going to get used." He raised his stock price target to $463, which is 5.6% above the March 20, 2015 record close of $438.43, from $311. "We acknowledge there has and will continue to be physician/payor pushback but our doc checks indicate patient-led demand is already extremely high, with even bearish clinicians acknowledging there will be significant use (even if not under their own care)," Bristow wrote in a note to clients. The stock has run up 62.4% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 12.9%.

The Guardian view on children’s homes: no place for profit | Editorial
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 17:39:35 GMT

Treating the most vulnerable young people as a money-making opportunity is wrong. The care review must lead to change

It is impossible, even for an appointee regarded by critics as too close to government and with overly restricted terms of reference, to look at children’s homes without being appalled by what is going on. That is the conclusion to be drawn from remarks this week by Josh MacAlister, who is several months into a long-awaited review of children’s social care. He warned that the sector is broken and that operators must cut “indefensible” levels of profit and improve young people’s experiences.

Recent years have seen numerous reports and complaints by official bodies about a dysfunctional system, in which councils on the verge of bankruptcy pay ever increasing prices (up 40% since 2013, to about £200,000 a year per child) while profits soar. Private companies are making an estimated £250m profit annually out of 16,000 children who live in children’s homes in England, Wales and Scotland (a much larger number of children, around 65,000, live in foster care).

Is the UK sleepwalking into authoritarian rule? | Letters
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 15:57:24 GMT

Jeremy Cushing on how the government is attacking and undermining the institutions of democracy, Blaine Stothard on ministers’ demands for total conformity of beliefs and values, and Pat Farrington on the Tories’ cynical attempts to keep hold of power

Another verdict goes against the government (Covid contract for firm run by Cummings’ friends unlawful, finds judge, 9 June). Amid much discussion of the Good Law Project’s activities, however, one question goes unanswered: given that democracies need a lively independent scrutiny of government, what is the sanction?

The government reacts, as we have now come to expect, with lies and threats. The GLP itself is the target of accusations that it is “misusing crowdfunding”, and the government uses taxpayers’ money to run up huge costs, which the GLP is at risk of having to pay. The court is under the threat of legislation to curb the use of judicial review.

Fri, 11 Jun 2021 15:48:49 GMT

House lawmakers are preparing to propose legislation that could require Amazon.com Inc. and other tech giants to effectively split into two companies or shed their private-label products, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.

J&J stock drops after report FDA said millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses need to be discarded
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 15:20:06 GMT

Shares of Johnson & Johnson took a 1.4% hit in morning trading Friday, after a report that health officials decided the drugmaker needs to throw out millions of doses of its COVID-19 vaccine because of possible contamination. The New York Times reported Friday, citing people familiar with the situation, that after weeks of review, the Food and Drug Administration told J&J to discard 60 million doses of its vaccine made at a Baltimore plant under federal review, which is operated by Emergent BioSolutions Inc. , because of possible contamination. The FDA said Friday that it was authorizing emergency use of two batches of vaccines made at the Baltimore facility, even though it said it is "not yet ready" to include the plant as an authorized facility for the vaccine. The NYT report comes after the FDA approved the extension of the shelf life of J&J's one-dose vaccine, to 4 1/2 months from 3 months, as supply piled up. J&J's stock has gained 3.6% over the past three months, while the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has gained 8.6% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has tacked on 5.9%.

Tesla stock holds to weekly advance after 'Plaid' Model S
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 14:51:37 GMT

Tesla Inc. stock fell on Friday after the unveiling of a souped-up version of its Model S sedan late Thursday, but the stock held on to gains around 1.3% for the week. The Model S, a sedan first sold in 2012, has lost ground to Tesla's cheaper sedan, the Model 3, and the newest offering, the compact SUV Model Y. The "Plaid" version of the Model S, which had its interior redesigned and is faster and more expensive, is also a few months late to get to market, and the Thursday event itself was more than one hour late in starting. Tesla and other auto makers have endured months of chip and parts shortages and rising raw-materials costs just as demand for new and used cars has increased. A revamped Model X, Tesla's full-size SUV, is also in the works. Shares of Tesla have lost 14% this year, but advanced 212% in the past 12 months. That contrasts with gains of 13% and 41% for the S&P 500 index in the same period.

S&P 500 opens higher Friday, aims to end week at a record ahead of big Fed policy update
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 13:31:19 GMT

U.S. equity benchmarks rose modestly early Friday, looking to end the week on a positive note after the S&P 500 logged a record close despite another round of hotter-than-expected inflation data. Investors are now looking to the start on June 15 of the Federal Reserve's two-day policy meeting. The S&P 500 index was heading 0.1% higher at 4,244, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.3% at 34,552, while the Nasdaq Composite Index advanced less than 0.1% at 14,022. The U.S. economic calendar is light following Thursday's inflation fireworks. A preliminary June consumer sentiment index reading is due at 10 a.m. Eastern. On Thursday, stocks and government debt rallied, despite data that showed the rate of U.S. consumer inflation over the past year escalated to a 13-year high of 5% from 4.2% in the prior month. That put it at the highest level since 2008, when the cost of oil hit a record $150 a barrel. Before that, the last time inflation was as high was in 1991. In corporate news, meme stocks remain in focus, with shares of AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. up more than 6% in premarket trading Friday, after falling 22.2% over the past two sessions. The stock and other meme stocks, took a hit Thursday after GameStop Corp. .

Vertex Pharmaceuticals stock tumbles to pace S&P 500 losers after disappointing drug trial data
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 12:46:52 GMT

Shares of Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc. tumbled 13.8% in premarket trading Friday, enough to pace the S&P 500's early decliners, after the biotechnology company released what was seen as disappointing data on its treatment for people with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD), which can lead to liver and lung disease. The stock was on track to open at the lowest price seen during regular-session hours since October 2019. The company said late Thursday that the Phase 2 trial of VX-864 mets its primary endpoint, showing a mean increase of 2.2 to 2.3 micromolar fAAT levels across the dose groups compared with placebo. Analyst Cory Kasimov at J.P. Morgan reiterated his overweight rating but cut his stock price target to $245 from $279, saying the trials results were "clearly" a setback. "Management is adamant that this is actually a step in the right direction for the program," Kasimov wrote. "We doubt [Wall Street] will agree." Stifel Nicolaus's Paul Matteis cut his stock price target to $244 from $277: "The announcement of modest AAT increases for VX-864, despite what looked like great data in animals, makes it difficult for us to garner conviction that futures compounds will perform materially better." The stock has lost 8.3% year to date, while the S&P 500 has climbed 12.9%.

Magnachip stock surges after receiving an unsolicited, higher buyout bid

Shares of Magnachip Semiconductor Corp. shot up 15.8% in premarket trading Friday, after the South Korea-based chipmaker confirmed that it received an unsolicited buyout bid representing a premium of more than 50%.

Magnachip said it will "carefully review and consider" Cornucopia's bid. The stock has run up 70.5% year to date through Thursday, while the PHLX Semiconductor Index has climbed 14.3% and the S&P 500 has gained 12.9%.

AMC stock bounces, in wake of credit upgrade; GameStop stock also rises
Fri, 11 Jun 2021 10:36:51 GMT

Shares of AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. bounced 3.9% in premarket trading Friday, after falling 22.2% over the past two sessions. The stock, along with some other meme stocks, took a hit Thursday after GameStop Corp. disclosed that the Securities and Exchange Commission was looking into the "trading activity" in its stock and those of other companies. GameStop's stock rallied 6.1% ahead of Friday's open, after tumbling 27.2% on Thursday. Late in Thursday's session, AMC's credit rating was upgraded by two notches, to CCC+ from CCC-, by S&P Global Ratings, which said the movie theater operator's recent equity capital raises "makes it less likely that AMC will pursue a subpar debt exchange or other forms of debt restructuring in the near future." AMC said it raised $1.25 billion from equity in the second quarter, and S&P Global pegged the capital raises at roughly $1.8 billion this year. The credit rating agency said AMC's credit outlook is positive, which suggests potential for another upgrade. The CCC+ rating, which still suggests AMC's debt is "vulnerable for nonpayment," is still seven notches deep into speculative grade, or "junk" territory. The bounce in AMC's stock, and GameStop's, comes as futures for the S&P 500 edged up 0.1%.

This measure of U.S. inflation isn't running so hot
Thu, 10 Jun 2021 18:31:21 GMT

The Federal Reserve is not all that worried about inflation because the central bank thinks it's not as bad as it looks. And an obscure inflation measure that's closely followed by the Fed appears to support its view. The Cleveland Fed's so-called trimmed-mean inflation index rose 0.4% in May, but it's only up 2.6% in the past year. By contrast, the better known consumer price index has climbed at a 5% yearly rate. The Cleveland index strips away the products or services that have experienced the biggest price swings to try to figure out the underlying rate of inflation. Inflation has clearly risen by any measure, but the Cleveland Fed's gauge suggests to top central bank officials that price pressures aren't a big long-term problem.

Corn futures on track to settle at highest in nearly a month as USDA cuts U.S. ending stocks estimate
Thu, 10 Jun 2021 17:21:53 GMT

Corn futures were headed for their highest finish in nearly a month on Thursday after the U.S. Department of Agriculture lowered its forecast for U.S. corn ending stocks for the 2021/2022 marketing year by 150 million bushels from the May estimate, or roughly 3.81 million metric tons. The USDA's forecast shows 2021/2022 corn ending stocks at 34.47 million metric tons, down from the previous forecast of 38.28 million metric tons. Corn ending stocks came in below trade expectations so corn bulls did have "some encouragement" from the report, lifting prices, said Sal Gilbertie, president and chief investment officer at Teucrium Trading. Still, "markets may have to wait for some weather news to get much above $7 for any prolonged period of time," he said. "It is weather from this point forward that will move corn prices." The most-active July corn contract was up 20 cents, or 2.9%, at $7.10 3/4 a bushel. Prices haven't settled above $7 since May 12, FactSet data show. Soybean futures edged lower, with the July contract down 14 1/4 cents, or 0.9%, at $15.48 1/4 a bushel. The USDA raised its forecast for U.S. soybean ending stocks by 15 million bushels, but that's "still a tight soybean market based on expectations," said Craig Turner, senior commodities broker at Daniels Trading.

Hertz stock rallies after court ruling paves way for emergence from bankruptcy by end of June
Thu, 10 Jun 2021 17:00:42 GMT

Shares of Hertz Global Holdings Inc. rose 1.7% in midday trading Thursday, after the car rental company said the bankruptcy court has confirmed its plan of reorganization. That paves the way for the company to emerge from bankruptcy by the end of the month, about 13 months after it filed for bankruptcy. The reorganization plan will eliminate more than $5 billion of debt, and provide more than $2.2 billion of global liquidity. "As a result of its restructuring efforts, Hertz will emerge from Chapter 11 with a substantially stronger balance sheet and greater financial flexibility than it had prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced Hertz to file for Chapter 11 relief in May 2020," the company said in a statement. The stock has rocketed 693.6% over the past three months, while shares of rival Avis Budget Group Inc. have rallied 34.7% and the S&P 500 has gained 8.8%.

Electronic Arts Inc. EA shares declined Thursday following a report that hackers stole source code for one of its most popular games as well as other data. EA shares, which had traded as much as 0.4% higher on the session, fell as much as 2.4%, following a report from Vice early Thursday. According to Vice, hackers have claimed online to have taken source code for EA’s FIFA 21 soccer game as well as code for its matchmaking server, the company’s Frostbite Engine that powers games such as Battlefield, and other intellectual property. Vice reported that hackers have been advertising about 780 gigabytes of EA data for sale in online forums. Vice reported that EA confirmed the breach, noting that no player data had been accessed. MarketWatch has reached out to EA but has yet to receive an independent confirmation of the report.

‘Americans are heaven for us’: the surge in US visitors throwing Greece a lifeline

At 47, the owner of The Loom has seen “a lot of bad stuff” in recent years. The global pandemic couldn’t have come at a worse time for Greece, already gutted by prolonged economic crisis.

But barely a month after the tourist-dependent country opened its doors, the entrepreneur is in ebullient mood.

Covid lockdown: should England open up on 21 June?
Sat, 12 Jun 2021 15:15:33 GMT

The prime minister has a host of problems to weigh up before deciding to remove all legal restrictions on social contact

The key issue is the extent to which infections of the Delta variant first detected in India will lead to hospitalisations and deaths. The problem is that it’s too early to say. Because of the lag between cases and admissions to hospital, many experts say a short delay could be a major benefit to understanding that relationship. “With the current knowledge about Delta, we can’t really predict the size of that wave,” said Anne Cori of Imperial College London’s modelling group. “Delaying the easing allows time to accumulate more evidence about the characteristics of Delta. And I hope in a few weeks, we would be in a better position to predict what the epidemic may look like in the next few weeks or months.”

Big Brother is still watching you and he goes by the name Facebook
Sat, 12 Jun 2021 15:00:33 GMT

The social media giant’s offer of free internet access ensures that mobile users stay where it can keep an eye on them

The security guru Bruce Schneier once famously observed that “surveillance is the business model of the internet”. Like all striking generalisations it was slightly too general: it was strictly true only if by “the internet” you meant the services of a certain number of giant tech companies, notably those of Facebook (including WhatsApp and Instagram), Google (including YouTube), Twitter and Amazon.

The trouble is (and this is what gave Schneier’s aphorism its force) that for a large chunk of networked humanity, especially inhabitants of poorer countries, these walled gardens are indeed what people regard as “the internet”. And that’s no accident. Although Chinese smartphones are pretty cheap everywhere, mobile data tends to be prohibitively expensive in poor countries. So the deal offered by western tech companies is that data charges are low or zero if you access the internet via their apps, but expensive if you venture outside their walled gardens.

The luxury fashion house’s Birkin and Kelly bags are among the most expensive ever sold; demand outstrips supply by so much that you can’t even join a waiting list. Acquiring one is a matter of luck and contacts. So when Hermès announced this season’s handbag would be made from plant leather, it marked a new era in designer accessories.

‘We are democratising the right to laziness’: the rise of on-demand grocery deliveries

Companies are springing up all over the UK promising to deliver whatever you want in as little as 10 minutes. But what could we lose by never popping out for milk again?

One Friday afternoon in May, Glenn Cobane, 40, who lives with his wife and two cats in Salford, did some grocery shopping: a loaf of bread, bananas, an avocado, cat food, chocolate brownies and some cans of beer. Rather than going to a nearby corner shop or walking a mile to the large Tesco Extra, he bought the food and drink from a new app called Weezy. He placed the order at 2.19pm. “I just sent the order, typed an email and then it arrived.” he says. It is now 2.27pm, and I’m standing on his doorstep beside the courier.

“This is the third or fourth time I’ve used them in the past fortnight,” Cobane says. The Weezy delivery rider might have shaved a few minutes off the mile-long journey from the warehouse to Cobane’s house on his e-bike if he hadn’t had to wait for me to keep up.

True to nature: Robert Macfarlane, Helen Macdonald and more on the children’s books that inspired them
Sat, 12 Jun 2021 11:00:29 GMT

From Watership Down to The Animals of Farthing Wood, leading nature writers discuss the children’s classics that made them want to write about the natural world

A couple of years ago I found myself gazing at the cover of a book I’d loved as a child: the 1942 Carnegie medal-winning The Little Grey Men, by the naturalist, illustrator and sportsman Denys Watkins-Pitchford, who wrote under the name BB. The charge it carried felt electric, and even opening the cover felt risky; I braced myself in case its magic had faded in the 40 years since it had been read to me at bedtime.

The Little Grey Men was published during the misery of the second world war, with destruction all around and a sense – familiar to us today – of a world in terminal decline. I remembered it as an utterly luminous evocation of spring, summer and autumn in the countryside, seen through the eyes of the very last gnomes in Britain: “honest-to-goodness gnomes, none of your baby, fairy-book tinsel stuff, and they live by hunting and fishing like the animals and birds, which is only proper and right,” as BB wrote. As a child I loved that businesslike tone, with its flattering dismissal of other, “babyish” stories; I loved BB’s illustrations, the precise and detailed rendering of the natural history in the book, and most of all the feeling it gave me of a secret world to which I was being granted privileged access.

UN secretary general says he’s concerned that the richest nations have pumped billions more into fossil fuels than clean energy since the pandemic

Wealthy countries risk an “unforgivable lost opportunity” by not emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic with newly green economies to address the climate crisis, the United Nations secretary general has warned.

Before meeting the leaders of the world’s major economic powers at the G7 summit in the UK, António Guterres said he was concerned that the richest nations have pumped billions of dollars more into fossil fuels than clean energy since the pandemic, despite their promises of a green recovery.

Skincare, age and allergies: five of the most common triggers for sensitive skin
Fri, 07 May 2021 11:54:17 GMT

Find out why your complexion is so prone to dryness, tightness, itchiness, and how you can give it the tender care it craves

Having skin that’s sensitised and reactive can make you tiptoe around your complexion as if it’s a permanently annoyed wasp. “Sensitive skin has a tendency to become irritated, which can manifest itself as redness, stinging, burning, itchiness and general discomfort,” says Dr Justine Hextall, a consultant dermatologist for La Roche-Posay.

Anything from your age to your skincare routine could increase your chances of an itchy reaction. While it may seem as if sensitive skin comes out of nowhere, typically there is a trigger waiting to be identified. More often than not, it’s one of the following five …

‘I broke out in spots just before my son’s wedding’: four women on living with sensitive skin
Fri, 07 May 2021 11:50:37 GMT

The impact of skin conditions on self-esteem can be devastating. That’s why it’s so vital to pinpoint the right regime – and understand how skin changes over time

Nearly every one of us knows the feeling of looking in the mirror and seeing that, of all days, our skin has chosen to play up today. We make an effort with concealer, wonder if popping a spot might work, and then we head off to meet our date, attend a wedding or grapple with a big day at work. Life goes on, but all the while we’re fighting down the voice that says: “They’re looking at my terrible skin.”

For people with lifelong skin concerns, that voice just never shuts up. A parliamentary report from September 2020 showed that 98% of people with skin conditions said their self-esteem was affected, 87% of the respondents also said their skin had a negative impact on their social and leisure activities.

Six tips for tackling sensitive skin: how the experts deal with dryness, tightness, itchiness and redness
Fri, 07 May 2021 11:48:46 GMT

If you struggle to find creams and lotions that are right for you, this advice on skincare ingredients and routines will hit the spot

Sensitive skin can mean different things, from dryness, tightness, itchiness and redness to skin that seems to react to pretty much anything. But for dermatologists, one thing rings true no matter what the symptoms – your skin barrier has issues. “There’s definitely a genetic element to our skin and how robust it is, so some skin barriers are more vulnerable than others,” says Dr Justine Hextall, a consultant dermatologist at La Roche-Posay.

The outermost layer of skin acts as a seal to lock in hydration so a healthy barrier is key to keeping our skin smooth, supple and comfortable. “If the skin barrier is not functioning well, you’ll notice very dry skin in some areas, particularly in the midface, and it might get flaky,” says Hextall. The good news, however, is that it can take just days to settle an irritated or disrupted skin barrier – you just need to know how to go about it. Try these expert tips to get you started:
