As workplace infections soar, an Observer study reveals no company has been punished this year for breaching Covid safety laws

Irresponsible firms are exploiting looser lockdown regulations to bring thousands of non-essential workers into sometimes busy workplaces, with little chance of enforcement action by the nationas safety watchdog.

Analysis by the Observer shows that no enforcement notices have been served on companies by Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspectors for Covid safety breaches since the country went into the latest lockdown, despite being contacted 2,945 times about workplace safety issues between 6 and 14 January. Overall, just 0.1% of the nearly 97,000 Covid safety cases dealt with by the agency during the pandemic appear to have resulted in an improvement or prohibition safety notice, with not a single company prosecuted for Covid-related breaches of safety laws.

Turn it down: how to silence your inner voice

From https:

Your internal monologue shapes mental wellbeing, says psychologist Ethan Kross. He has the tools to improve your mindas backchat

As Ethan Kross, an American experimental psychologist and neuroscientist, will cheerfully testify, the person who doesnat sometimes find themselves listening to an unhelpful voice in their head probably doesnat exist. Ten years ago, Kross found himself sitting up late at night with a baseball bat in his hand, waiting for an imaginary assailant he was convinced was about to break into his house a a figure conjured by his frantic mind after he received a threatening letter from a stranger whoad seen him on TV. Kross, whose area of research is the science of introspection, knew that he was overreacting; that he had fallen victim to what he calls achattera. But telling himself this did no good at all. At the peak of his anxiety, his negative thoughts running wildly on a loop, he found himself, somewhat comically, Googling abodyguards for academicsa.

Kross runs the wonderfully named Emotion and Self Control Lab at Michigan University, an institution he founded and where he has devoted the greater part of his career to studying the silent conversations people have with themselves: internal dialogues that powerfully influence how they live their lives. Why, he and his colleagues want to know, do some people benefit from turning inwards to understand their feelings, while others are apt to fall apart when they engage in precisely the same behaviour? Are there right and wrong ways to communicate with yourself, and if so, are there techniques that might usefully be employed by those with inner voices that are just a little too loud?

But all that will have to wait. We must be practical. Iave had a good look around the place in which we find ourselves, and Iam pretty sure that this is it: the Slough of Despond. It is, I think we can all agree, a grim spot: not quite the bog of Bunyanas imagining, but nevertheless somewhat dark and dank a and strangely depopulated, too, when you consider how many of us now loiter here, quietly catastrophising.

JA1/4rgen Klopp needs faltering Firmino, ManA(c) and Salah to spark again | Andy Hunter

There were 52,916 supporters allowed inside Anfield on that different planet, Alisson could sprint the length of the pitch to embrace the goalscorer without fear of government censure and Liverpool fans finally acknowledged in public that the Premier League title was theirs after a 30-year wait. Of the many changes in JA1/4rgen Kloppas world since last receiving Ole Gunnar SolskjA|r at Anfield, it is the dilution of that fierce belief into creeping doubt that will irritate most.

In circumstances demanding a less energetic approach, the manager has transformed his sideas Premier League prospects

Ominously, Manchester City have eased towards the front of the title race. They went into the weekend third, just four points behind the Premier League leaders, Manchester United, with a game in hand. Their next five league games are against sides in the bottom half and Aston Villa. Had Liverpool beaten them on 8 November, rather than drawing 1-1, their lead over City would have been eight points. As it is, by the time City face Liverpool on 6 February, thereas a good chance they will be top of the table. That, really, is a triumph of coaching.

Itas a triumph of resources as well because almost everything in modern football is (and let nobody ever forget the origin of those resources). The signing of RAoben Dias has been a triumph, not just for his own performances but for the way he seems to have galvanised the entire backline, John Stones in particular. That he is not playing in the position initially envisaged (operating on the left rather than the right of the centre of defence) is a quirky detail rather than something that calls the planning into doubt.

If Trump looks like a fascist and acts like a fascist, then maybe he is one | Nick Cohen

Assurances that afascism couldnat happen herea are always appealing in Anglo-Saxon countries that think themselves immune because aita never did. The US and UK did not experience rule by Nazism or communism in the 20th century and the ignorance our lucky histories fostered has weakened our defences in the 21st.

Even after all that has happened in Washington, apparently serious voices insist we cannot compare Donald Trump to any variety of fascist.

The silencing of Trump has highlighted the authoritarian power of tech giants | John Naughton
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2021 16:00:36 GMT
From https:

The US presidentas ban has sparked a furious debate about online opinion, but itas part of a bigger conversation

It was eerily quiet on social media last week. Thatas because Trump and his cultists had been adeplatformeda. By banning him, Twitter effectively took away the megaphone heas been masterfully deploying since he ran for president. The shock of the 6 January assault on the Capitol was seismic enough to convince even Mark Zuckerberg that the plug finally had to be pulled. And so it was, even to the point of Amazon Web Services terminating the hosting of Parler, a Twitter alternative for alt-right extremists.

The deafening silence that followed these measures was, however, offset by an explosion of commentary about their implications for freedom, democracy and the future of civilisation as we know it. Wading knee-deep through such a torrent of opinion about the first amendment, free speech, censorship, tech power and aaccountabilitya (whatever that might mean), it was sometimes hard to keep oneas bearings. But what came to mind continually was H L Menckenas astute insight that afor every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple and wronga.

Under Covid, young people are suffering from increased poverty and illness. An independent commission could avert this

The pandemic is having a devastating effect on the childhoods of children and young people across the country. Growing numbers of hard-pressed families are being swept into poverty, with more than 4 million children living in poverty even before Covid wrecked the economy. The closure of schools has widened the yawning education gap and the spiralling numbers of young people suffering mental illness and psychological distress look certain to increase with every day that lockdown keeps them isolated and uncertain about their futures.

These challenges are taking place just as the local services that children and their families rely on to keep them safe are reeling from the combined effect of more than APS2bn in funding cuts over the last 10 years, coupled with unprecedented demand for their help.

When certain people say, athis community belongs and that one doesnata, thatas very frightening. Someone like Jivan, the main character, can have a narrative imposed upon them by the state which they donat agree with and which they never claimed. Of course, itas not just taking place in India, itas around the world, this kind of policing around notions of purity and who belongs. A reader familiar with the political landscape in India will see where certain things connect to the news, while someone elsewhere might not catch the specifics.

The US presidentas ban has sparked a furious debate about online opinion, but itas part of a bigger conversation

It was eerily quiet on social media last week. Thatas because Trump and his cultists had been adeplatformeda. By banning him, Twitter effectively took away the megaphone heas been masterfully deploying since he ran for president. The shock of the 6 January assault on the Capitol was seismic enough to convince even Mark Zuckerberg that the plug finally had to be pulled. And so it was, even to the point of Amazon Web Services terminating the hosting of Parler, a Twitter alternative for alt-right extremists.

The deafening silence that followed these measures was, however, offset by an explosion of commentary about their implications for freedom, democracy and the future of civilisation as we know it. Wading knee-deep through such a torrent of opinion about the first amendment, free speech, censorship, tech power and aaccountabilitya (whatever that might mean), it was sometimes hard to keep oneas bearings. But what came to mind continually was H L Menckenas astute insight that afor every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple and wronga.

The aim of the game, which features the voice of Jon Ronson, a journalist who has spent a career profiling the kinds of people who believe the kinds of outlandish theories put forward here, is disarmingly simple. You are presented with 20 Polaroid photographs, each one describing an event seemingly unrelated to the others: a flock of geese dropping dead from the sky; a fatal car accident involving a US senator; a curiously successful chain of mattress companies.

'Spotify are selling adverts, not music': how to stream ethically

Major services pay musicians as little as APS0.004 per stream, a rate itas impossible to live on. What other options are there?

In September, independent singer and songwriter Miri earned APS44.30 in one week for 1,772 streams of her music on Sonstream, a new streaming service based in Stoke-on-Trent. aAlthough that doesnat sound like a lot, for me, thatas money towards food and electricity,a she says.

Can Joe Biden make America great again?
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2021 09:00:28 GMT
From https:

His skills as a fixer are finely honed a but they cannot restore a pre-Trump normality. As president, Bidenas private self, shadowed by loss, must come into its own

Every year after 1975, Joe Biden, his second wife Jill, his sons Beau and Hunter and their growing families, would gather for Thanksgiving on Nantucket island off Cape Cod. Part of the annual ritual was that the Bidens would take a photograph of themselves in front of a quaint old house in the traditional New England style that stood above the dunes on their favourite beach.

In November 2014, when Biden was serving as Barack Obamaas vice-president, he found, where the house should have been, an empty space marked out by yellow police tape. The building, he wrote in his memoir Promise Me, Dad had afinally run out of safe ground and run out of time; it had been swept out into the Atlantica.

Graham Swift on Last Orders, 25 years on: 'I wasn't born a writer - I had to become one'
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2021 11:00:31 GMT
From https:

Twenty-five years after his Booker prizeawinning novel was published, Swift reflects on how his story of a dark day trip to Margate became a celebration of life

When I wrote Last Orders in the early 1990s I was in my early 40s. My father had just died. The novel was my response and is dedicated to him. It was my first real recognition that ain the midst of life we are in deatha, something that the pandemic now teaches us daily.

Iave always felt that my literary journey began even when I was small, that the seeds of my desire to be a writer were sown in childhood. If it was no more at the time than an infantas naive wish, it stuck and became lifelong. There were no writers in my family and I didnat grow up in an environment that would have led me towards writing or anything artistic. My father was a minor civil servant in a dull office in London. In those days he might have called himself a apen pushera. In the war head been a fighter pilot. When my own puzzling urge to be a pen pusher of a different kind emerged he did not stand in its way. It was all my idea.

Patricia Highsmith at 100: the best film adaptations
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2021 08:00:27 GMT
From https:

Shape-shifting Tom Ripley, ill-met strangers on a traina| cinemaas love affair with Highsmithas thrillers was immediate, and shows no signs of cooling off

Graham Greene famously declared Patricia Highsmith athe poet of apprehensiona in the foreword to her 1970 short story collection Eleven. Thereas no better way to describe the American writer, whose psychological thrillers meld gliding literary cool with a jangling morass of nerves a a combination, in turn, that film-makers have been trying to translate since the middle of the last century. This coming Tuesday marks the centenary of Highsmithas birth, and her allure to screenwriters remains undimmed in 2021. A glossy new Ben Affleck-starring film of her novel Deep Water, the first film from Adrian Lyne in 19 years, is scheduled for August, while a TV version of Ripley, starring Andrew Scott as her most adaptable character, is in the pipeline.

Theyall join a large and variable roster of Highsmith screen adaptations, ranging from cast-iron classics to mouldering B-movies. Itas no easy subgenre to enter, the bar having been set impossibly high right off the bat a by Alfred Hitchcock, no less, whose perfectly sinuous film of Highsmithas debut novel, Strangers on a Train (on Amazon Prime), released just a year after the bookas 1950 publication, surely played some part in cementing her own elegantly nasty reputation. A murder-swapping mystery shot in woodcut-sharp monochrome, it still finds room in its skin-tight plotting for hovering waves of queer energy.

David Tennant and Michael Sheen squabble as exaggerated versions of themselves, capturing the chaos of life in lockdown

Staged (Tuesday, 9.45pm, BBC One) is back, which is good, because it is arguably the only noteworthy thing any single celebrity did during the first lockdown. If you missed the first series: David Tennant and Michael Sheen squabbled over Zoom as exaggerated, frustrated, hyper-thespian versions of themselves, in an actors-playing-actors miniseries with the exact same energy of a late-night Comic Relief sketch; 15-minute episodes where you got to see familiar actors with their off-duty haircuts saying words that seemed real. It was good, and it was smart, and it played perfectly with the boundaries of the format it was in. Series two comes to a close this week, and a| well, I mean, itas exactly the same as series one just with more guest stars, isnat it? Letas not play about.

'My neighbourhood is being destroyed to pacify his supporters': the race to complete Trump's wall

In his final months in office, Donald Trump has ramped up construction on his promised physical border between the US and Mexico a devastating wildlife habitats and increasing the migrant death toll

At Sierra Vista Ranch in Arizona near the Mexican border, Troy McDaniel is warming up his helicopter. McDaniel, tall and slim in a tan jumpsuit, began taking flying lessons in the 80s, and has since logged 2,000 miles in the air. The helicopter, a cosy, two-seater Robinson R22 Alpha is considered a work vehicle and used to monitor the 640-acre ranch, but itas clear he relishes any opportunity to fly. aWe will have no fun at all,a he deadpans.

McDaniel and his wife, Melissa Owen, bought their ranch and the 100-year-old adobe house that came with it in 2003. Years before, Owen began volunteering at the nearby Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge, and fell in love with the beauty and natural diversity of the area, as well as the quiet of their tiny town. That all changed last July when construction vehicles and large machinery started abarrelling down the two-lane state roada, says Owen.

Turn it down: how to silence your inner voice

From https:

Your internal monologue shapes mental wellbeing, says psychologist Ethan Kross. He has the tools to improve your mindas backchat

As Ethan Kross, an American experimental psychologist and neuroscientist, will cheerfully testify, the person who doesnat sometimes find themselves listening to an unhelpful voice in their head probably doesnat exist. Ten years ago, Kross found himself sitting up late at night with a baseball bat in his hand, waiting for an imaginary assailant he was convinced was about to break into his house a a figure conjured by his frantic mind after he received a threatening letter from a stranger whoad seen him on TV. Kross, whose area of research is the science of introspection, knew that he was overreacting; that he had fallen victim to what he calls achattera. But telling himself this did no good at all. At the peak of his anxiety, his negative thoughts running wildly on a loop, he found himself, somewhat comically, Googling abodyguards for academicsa.

Kross runs the wonderfully named Emotion and Self Control Lab at Michigan University, an institution he founded and where he has devoted the greater part of his career to studying the silent conversations people have with themselves: internal dialogues that powerfully influence how they live their lives. Why, he and his colleagues want to know, do some people benefit from turning inwards to understand their feelings, while others are apt to fall apart when they engage in precisely the same behaviour? Are there right and wrong ways to communicate with yourself, and if so, are there techniques that might usefully be employed by those with inner voices that are just a little too loud?

I thrived on the tension and drama of British politics. Then I had a heart attack

I lived for the nerve-shredding rollercoaster of Westminster. But the stress got under my skin, and into my blood

It is a kilometre from my front door in Brighton to the local park, all downhill. A 45-year-old man, jogging not very fast, should be able to complete the journey without stopping; without fighting for breath; without feeling sick. Also, he should not be assailed by dread, feeling that the universe has suddenly turned a shade darker, soured, curled at the edges.

That is how I knew something was very wrong on New Yearas Eve 2019. It was around 2pm and I had made it three-quarters of the way when something detonated behind my ribs. The pain was familiar at first. Tediously so. I would often get a tight, burning sensation across my chest when running. It slowed me down but never stopped me in my tracks. I would get home panting too hard for words, my face flashing red and white. aAre you all right?a my wife would ask. aYeah... justa| gimmea| aa| second.a I thought that was normal in a man my age. Exercise was supposed to hurt a bit, and I took the pain in my chest as a barometer of unfitness. Breathing that doesnat burn was a luxury for the younger man, I thought. But I had angina and called it middle age.
