The Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has proposed permanently seizing Palestinian territory by annexing swathes of the West Bank - a violation of international law. Journalist Mariam Barghouti and PIPD executive director Salem Barahmeh describe how this would formalise a system that millions of Palestinians are already enduring, while Jerusalem correspondent Oliver Holmes examines what is driving Netanyahuas latest plans

In April last year, the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, announced he planned to annex Jewish settlements, outposts in the West Bank where hundreds of thousands of Israelis live, to global condemnation. In September, the Israeli leader added he would also annex the Jordan Valley, which makes up to one-third of the West Bank and borders Jordan. The Guardianas Jerusalem correspondent, Oliver Holmes, tells Anushka Asthana why the support of US president Donald Trump, who may lose the election in November, has emboldened Netanyahu.

The Guardian view on stop and search: police people, donat terrorise them | Editorial
Date: Fri, 10 Jul 2020 17:39:30 GMT
From https:

Londonas top police officer is in denial about a counterproductive stop-and-search policy

Cressida Dick, the commissioner of Londonas Metropolitan police, appears to be in denial about the extent of institutional racism in the force she leads. The evidence that some of her officers and policies do discriminate is hiding in plain sight. Black people in the capital are four times more likely to be Tasered than their white peers. During the coronavirus lockdown, her officers were more than twice as likely to issue fines to black people as to white people. Perhaps if her force resembled the city it policed, such disparities would shrink. London cannot wait for this to happen. At the current rate of recruitment, the Met will be disproportionately white for a century.

There is a pressing need for reform. Ms Dick said last year that the Met had won the war against racism in the ranks. She has been wilfully blind about the failure of her force to treat black and white people alike. Her apology for the adistressa suffered by two black athletes who were pulled over in their car and handcuffed in a stop and search that turned up nothing but their three-month-old baby in the back seat is no turning point. It was an attempt to deflect mounting criticism for the way stop and search has been applied in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests. During the coronavirus lockdown, when crime rates fell, stop and search continued for the sake of it. In May alone, one in eight young black males in London were stopped and searched.

Donald Trump taints everything he touches. If he supports a cause, he damages it. If he takes a stance, the instinct of most self-respecting liberals is to rush to the opposing side. So when Trump rails against China, a favourite bete noire, it can make a progressive pause.

Thatas especially true when the US president lurches so easily into casual bigotry a referring to the coronavirus as akung flua a and when his hypocrisy is so rank.

The APS1.57bn rescue package for the arts that the UK government announced on 5 July was both absolutely necessary and rightly welcomed. The funds ought to be sufficient to sustain Britainas artistic and cultural infrastructure until the spring. Had they not materialised, institutions such as the Royal Opera House would have faced collapse by Christmas.

Yet theatres, concert halls, opera houses and arts centres are only the pipes through which art flows. While it is clearly important to keep this infrastructure functioning, it is of absolutely no use on its own. Indeed, the purely physical infrastructure is, by and large, the problem in terms of Covid-19, since it presents the issue of mass gatherings indoors. It is the work a art made by freelancers a that matters, and that audiences pay to see.

Date: Fri, 10 Jul 2020 18:10:00 GMT
From https:

10th over: England 15-0 (Burns 10, Sibley 5) Burns whips Holder for a single, the first run for four overs. Sibley leaves one that is this close to his off stump, then gets rapped in the midriff as Holder angles one in. Finally, Sibley gets some joy as he stabs the last two balls to fine leg. Well played those openers.

But also, well played West Indies a the day belongs to them, and they still lead by 99. They are firm favourites to win this match. England could still win it too, but they will have to make at least 300 and then have four or five bowlers on form, not just three.

9th over: England 11-0 (Burns 9, Sibley 2) Roach gives Sibley some more comfortable leaves, and Nasser Hussain produces a quiz question. Before Stokes and Holder, when was the last time an England captain and his opposite number got each other out in the same Test? Answer in a minute.

That is the competitive nature I want in training and in the camp.a

    My biggest lockdown mistake? Relying on TikTok as a co-parent? | Emma Brockes
    Date: Fri, 10 Jul 2020 09:48:05 GMT
    From https:

    I hoped the app would buy me some much-needed peace in lockdown. Then it turned my five-year-olds into proto-teens

    There are upsides to single parenting during a pandemic, chiefly the avoidance of another adultas dark moods. Even at its craziest, since New York locked down in March a when my kids are still running around at 11pm, because I am too tired or up against it to put them down; when the dishwasher, never once, manages to unstack itself; on the arrival of mice in my apartment because apparently I canat and wonat pick up crumbs a it has often struck me that short of illness, the only way this scenario could be worse was if I had to manage one more personas needs. And then there is the downside: the effects of leaning on TikTok as co-parent.

    For the first two weeks of lockdown, we did what we were supposed to. I blew through a large deadline and engaged conscientiously with my kidsa remote schooling every morning. We did the worksheets. We made a word wall. I bought a whiteboard. In between learning activities, I scheduled acentre timea, which included building things, colouring and, yes, piano. It was fun, and novel, and everyone did what they were told.

    US universities are charging full fees for 'virtual' class this fall. This is absurd | Ross Barkan

    Schools with huge endowments are pretending remote learning is the same experience. Give students a break

    Colleges and universities are in an unprecedented bind. Coronavirus continues to rage in many parts of America, making the sort of communal gatherings that are hallmarks of collegiate life outright dangerous. Lecture halls, libraries, football games and dorm-room parties can all be superspreader events.

    Everyone is hoping for the best as Americaas major sports move forward with their restart plans, but thereas nothing in our disastrous response to the pandemic to say we deserve them

    Since the first cases of coronavirus were detected in China in December, no country has been harder hit than the US, which accounts for roughly 4% of the worldas population and more than a quarter of total cases. Things have gone from bad to worse in the nearly four months since the pandemic changed life as we know it, with the flattened curves we were promised giving way to soaring case totals nationwide, helped along by a dumbfounding lack of leadership and one unforced error after another by government and citizenry alike. It didnat just go away.

    Nadal and Djokovic have plausible claims to be the greatest of the past 50 years but their serene, ruthless rival aces it for me

    Few rivalries in sport divide fans with quite the fervour and wilful lack of understanding for an opposing point of view as does that involving Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

    When those whose recall reaches back beyond the start of the millennium to weigh up the merits of Pete Sampras and BjAPrn Borg as the other contenders in a magnificent top five, the battalions of young social media hawks smile upon them as quaintly romantic, with their love of wooden rackets, tight shorts and bad mullets. As great as those two players were, with 25 majors between them, they are regarded as intruders on a private argument.

    What would annexation of parts of the West Bank mean for Palestinians? a podcast
    Date: Fri, 10 Jul 2020 02:00:03 GMT
    From https:

    The Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has proposed permanently seizing Palestinian territory by annexing swathes of the West Bank - a violation of international law. Journalist Mariam Barghouti and PIPD executive director Salem Barahmeh describe how this would formalise a system that millions of Palestinians are already enduring, while Jerusalem correspondent Oliver Holmes examines what is driving Netanyahuas latest plans

    In April last year, the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, announced he planned to annex Jewish settlements, outposts in the West Bank where hundreds of thousands of Israelis live, to global condemnation. In September, the Israeli leader added he would also annex the Jordan Valley, which makes up to one-third of the West Bank and borders Jordan. The Guardianas Jerusalem correspondent, Oliver Holmes, tells Anushka Asthana why the support of US president Donald Trump, who may lose the election in November, has emboldened Netanyahu.

    Much uncertainty however, remains around when, how a or even if a Netanyahu will push forward with annexation and what effect it could have. Palestinian journalist Mariam Barghouti - based in Ramallah - and Salem Barahmeh, who is the executive director of the Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy and lives in the Jordan Valley, describe the impact the Israel occupation already has on the lives of millions of Palestinians.

    The prolific Stephen Graham Jones has written more than 20 books in as many years, and his latest, The Only Good Indians (Titan, APS8.99), combines literary horror, a slasher-revenge plot and a Native American reservation backdrop to great effect. A decade before the main action of the novel, Blackfeet Indian Lewis Clarke and four friends, on a hunting expedition in Montana, trespass on land belonging to tribal elders and embark on a killing spree, slaughtering a pregnant elk in an act that will have terrible repercussions for the quintet. What follows years later is the manifestation of a spirit creature in the form of a woman with an elkas head and her bloody revenge on the friends. Aside from delivering the staples of the horror genre, Jones is excellent at depicting the anxiety of Native Americans in contemporary society a and the finale is stunning.

    HBOas adaptation of Elena Ferranteas Neapolitan novels is not the first series to portray friendship between women, but it does so with a rare sense of emotion and complexity

    During lockdown, I have found myself experiencing a peculiar nostalgia. With less cultural and social stimulation outside of my immediate environment, my mind feels unfettered. I have been flooded by memories of childhood, which I experience in a way that is almost tangible. The friendships that we form in the early years of our lives may not always endure, but they retain a psychological potency that follows us into adulthood.

    Friendships between girls, particularly, can involve a possessiveness and a as well as a deep, complicit intimacy a a shared language, often of subtle rebellion, and a competitiveness that can manifest itself in cruelty.

    Clark Duke and Liam Hemsworth climb the sticky drug-trafficking ladder in this meandering drama, graced with superb menswear

    Clark Duke was best known as a peripheral member of that Superbad crew of gauchely charming leading men, along with the likes of Michael Cera and Jonah Hill. As might be expected, he does a better job of utilising his own talents in his directorial debut, a meandering crime yarn, set in and named after Dukeas home state.

    Adapted from a 2008 novel by John Brandon, Arkansas is about two unambitious but conscientious crooks, Swin (Duke) and Kyle (Liam Hemsworth), who sometimes idly wonder about the meaning of it all, but mostly get on with the business of trafficking drugs across state lines. When surprise events force them to pursue a face-to-face meet with their organisationas mysterious kingpin, Frog, they set about climbing the corporate ladder with old-fashioned American chutzpah.

    The novel is dead a again. And this time, it's women who have murdered it | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett

    From https:

    No one wants to make the Great White Male Novelist extinct - they just want more diversity in publishing

    The novel has died again. Iave been baited into reading yet another obituary, this time written by the Secret Author (a aformer professor of English and creative writing at a leading British universitya) who laments, in the Critic magazine, the decline of serious novels about middle-class morals and God, in favour of those focusing on aidentity politicsa. Sally Rooney and Zadie Smith are cited as the writers who symbolise this supposed decline. It did not escape my notice that these writers happen to be women, while the literary God-botherers of the past have tended to be men. Over the years, the novel has died more deaths than a cat. It has died from loneliness, and it has died as a result of its own stupidity. This time, it has died because women have murdered it.

    Thereas something about Sally Rooney that drives men wild, and not in the ways they are used to being stimulated (an attractive young womanas place shouldnat be an enthusiastic profile in the New Yorker. This was not part of the plan). Itas all very well dismissing her work as avery simple stuff with no literary ambitiona, as Will Self did last year. Everyone is entitled to their opinion on the state of literature. But writing can be a petty business. A writer who claims never to be envious of other writers is as much a liar as one who claims not to care about sales. And Rooney, who has not only hit the publishing sweet spot of the literary and commercial crossover but is also very good at what she does, has provoked much jealousy.

Weirdly, Iad bought a new copy a few weeks previously because I wanted to read it again before the film came out, but Iad lost it. I thought: oh, thatas lucky, I can carry on reading it now.

If anywhere is a shark attack hotspot, itas here: one-sixth of recorded fatal attacks globally from 2011a2016 happened in the islandas murky water, which appeals to bull sharks but makes it harder to spot them. Overfishing has been cited as another possible reason for the high incidence of attacks, as sharks move nearer land to find food.
