On 14 July, Donald Trump used Twitter to tell four unnamed Democratic congresswomen to ago back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they camea. His racist language shocked many around the world, but he has refused to back down. The Guardianas Jamiles Lartey looks at Trumpas history of racism while David Smith discusses how it may affect the 2020 presidential race. And: Ellie Geranmayeh on the Iran crisis

Although Donald Trump did not name the targets of his racists tweets on 14 July, it was clear the attack was directed at a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Only Omar, who is from Somalia, was not born in the US. Pressley is African American, Tlaib was born to Palestinian immigrants and Ocasio-Cortez comes from a New York-Puerto Rican family.

While many were quick to criticise the president, Republicans mostly defended Trump against charges of racism. Several days later, lawmakers passed a resolution condemning his tweets a though this was approved along mostly partisan lines, with only four Republicans joining Democrats in condemning the presidentas racism.

Is fair trade finished?
Date: Tue, 23 Jul 2019 05:00:41 GMT
From https:

Fairtrade changed the way we shop. But major companies have started to abandon it and set up their own in-house imitations a threatening the very idea of fair trade.

By Samanth Subramanian

It wasnat very long ago that a banana was just a banana a just a curved, yellow fruit. All you knew, if you bought a bunch in 1986, was that they cost around 97p per kilo. You werenat told if they were organic or pesticide-free. You didnat know if they came from Costa Rica or the Dominican Republic. And you certainly werenat invited to worry about the farmers who grew them a or if their children went to school, or whether their villages had clinics. You just picked up your bananas and walked to the next aisle for your coffee or tea or chocolate, none the wiser about where they came from either, or about the people who farmed them.

Back then, the countries that grew these commodities and many others were still known as the Third World, and the habit of not caring about their farming conditions was a legacy of their colonial past. For centuries, trade propelled the colonial project, and exploitation was its very purpose. The farmers of Asia, Africa and South America were forced to raise the crops that the empireas companies wanted, to work the crops in abject conditions, and to part with them at ruinously low prices. In the last century, the empires melted away but the trade remained lopsided a with the imbalance now rationalised by the market, which deemed it aefficienta to pay farmers as little as possible. In the 1970s, a Ghanaian cocoa farmer often received less than 10 cents out of every dollar his beans earned on the commodities market; as a proportion of the retail price of a chocolate bar, his take was smaller still. Child labour was common. The chocolate companies prospered and their customers shopped well; the farmers stayed poor.

In Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, out later this week, the filmmaker Nick Broomfield examines the on-off relationship between the late Marianne Ihlen, a Norwegian single mother, and the poet and musician Leonard Cohen, whom she met on the Greek island of Hydra and who died just four months after her in 2016. Ihlen was immortalised in the song So Long, Marianne, and inspired Cohen to write Bird on a Wire. Since Ihlen gets first billing in the title, one might assume that this is her story, a biopic of sorts, but instead it depicts her through the prism of the men in her life. These include the novelist Axel Jensen, who left her not long after their son, Axel Jr, was born; Cohen, the towering genius whom we are told she could never hope to tame; and Broomfield himself, who had a fling with her during a visit to Hydra in his early twenties.

Will whole-body cryotherapy cure me or leave me cold?

Plunging your body into sub-zero temperatures is claimed to help treat everything from eczema to anxiety a if you can get over the price

I have been feeling the heat recently. That claustrophobic quality a summer can have, when the windows are open, yet thereas no escape. Desperate for a means of cooling down, Iave been obsessed with the idea of whole-body cryotherapy (APS95 for three minutes, 111cryo.com): getting into a chamber that has been plunged into sub-zero temperatures. Friends were sceptical. aYour organs are going to slow down,a warned Selina, a nurse. This was not welcome news. Slowing down is, after all, connected to stopping. I told Selina I had booked a session with 111Cryo at Harvey Nichols, which reassured her. aI thought youad met some guy with a lock-up in Acton who wanted to show you his chest freezer,a she said.

The frozen chest I am most worried about is my own, as I strip down to my pants on the fourth floor of the department store, next to ladiesa fashion. To protect my extremities, my nakedness has been complicated by North Face puffer booties, shorts, ski gloves and a headband for the ears, plus a thin face mask to keep my breath warm. I feel cool.

I can reach orgasm masturbating to erotica, but not with a partner
Date: Tue, 23 Jul 2019 06:30:36 GMT
From https:

Everything I know about my body sexually was learned using erotic fiction, and I have only orgasmed once while with someone else. Am I condemned to unsatisfying sex for ever?

I am a woman in my early 20s and have had a few sexual partners, with one longer-term on-off relationship (in which I had my first sexual experiences). My mother never spoke to me about masturbation, which I began experimenting with, well before any sexual activity, after reading about erotic fiction websites in a womenas magazine in my teens. I am worried my use of erotica may be affecting my ability to orgasm during sex. While I masturbate (successfully) regularly, I have only reached orgasm once with a partner. I know my own body, but am unable to translate this into sex, possibly due to my own insecurities from my teens. What can I do? I am worried about having unsatisfying sex for ever.

There is nothing to be concerned about; everything you have described is completely normative. Using erotica is not a problem a in fact, it most likely helped you to fire your own erotic imagination and learn how your body works. Your task now is to go through the process of teaching partners how to please you. This might mean simply guiding them verbally a or perhaps physically guiding their hands or mouths. Many people erroneously imagine it is easy to switch between masturbation and sex with someone else, usually because they expect partners to read their minds. But satisfying sex requires communication; patiently helping your partner to know and do exactly what you want, and fully reciprocating. And relax a it takes time to learn the arts of giving and receiving.

Is fair trade finished?
Date: Tue, 23 Jul 2019 05:00:41 GMT
From https:

Fairtrade changed the way we shop. But major companies have started to abandon it and set up their own in-house imitations a threatening the very idea of fair trade.

By Samanth Subramanian

It wasnat very long ago that a banana was just a banana a just a curved, yellow fruit. All you knew, if you bought a bunch in 1986, was that they cost around 97p per kilo. You werenat told if they were organic or pesticide-free. You didnat know if they came from Costa Rica or the Dominican Republic. And you certainly werenat invited to worry about the farmers who grew them a or if their children went to school, or whether their villages had clinics. You just picked up your bananas and walked to the next aisle for your coffee or tea or chocolate, none the wiser about where they came from either, or about the people who farmed them.

Back then, the countries that grew these commodities and many others were still known as the Third World, and the habit of not caring about their farming conditions was a legacy of their colonial past. For centuries, trade propelled the colonial project, and exploitation was its very purpose. The farmers of Asia, Africa and South America were forced to raise the crops that the empireas companies wanted, to work the crops in abject conditions, and to part with them at ruinously low prices. In the last century, the empires melted away but the trade remained lopsided a with the imbalance now rationalised by the market, which deemed it aefficienta to pay farmers as little as possible. In the 1970s, a Ghanaian cocoa farmer often received less than 10 cents out of every dollar his beans earned on the commodities market; as a proportion of the retail price of a chocolate bar, his take was smaller still. Child labour was common. The chocolate companies prospered and their customers shopped well; the farmers stayed poor.

Nick Broomfieldas film underlines the downside of a life spent providing comfort and inspiration for a male artist

What are the life skills appropriate to an artistas muse? Hotness is a given; and sexual availability, while not compulsory, has generally been appreciated.

Could Trumpas racist rhetoric win him re-election in 2020? a podcast

On 14 July, Donald Trump used Twitter to tell four unnamed Democratic congresswomen to ago back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they camea. His racist language shocked many around the world, but he has refused to back down. The Guardianas Jamiles Lartey looks at Trumpas history of racism while David Smith discusses how it may affect the 2020 presidential race. And: Ellie Geranmayeh on the Iran crisis

Although Donald Trump did not name the targets of his racists tweets on 14 July, it was clear the attack was directed at a group of progressive Democratic congresswomen: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Only Omar, who is from Somalia, was not born in the US. Pressley is African American, Tlaib was born to Palestinian immigrants and Ocasio-Cortez comes from a New York-Puerto Rican family.

While many were quick to criticise the president, Republicans mostly defended Trump against charges of racism. Several days later, lawmakers passed a resolution condemning his tweets a though this was approved along mostly partisan lines, with only four Republicans joining Democrats in condemning the presidentas racism.

Drop Dead Gorgeous at 20: how dark pageant comedy works better in 2019

The pitch-black small-town mockumentary was a flop on release and left critics cold but 20 years later its vicious indecency remains daring

Drop Dead Gorgeous is one of my favourite films. It also made less than its $15m budget at the box office and only has a 45% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Jesus loves winners, as Gladys Leeman tells her daughter Becky, but I do understand why Drop Dead Gorgeous was not triumphant when it was released 20 years ago. Shot as a mockumentary, and indebted to John Waters and Christopher Guest, it follows a group of young, wannabe high school beauty queens as they compete in the Sarah Rose Cosmetics Mount Rose American Teen Princess pageant. Its humour is crude, its message is anarchic, its bite is vicious and its jokes donat so much stretch the boundaries of taste as tap-dance all over them in a mortuary.
