She was reported to the police and the Electoral Commission, and someone wrote to her vice-chancellor calling for her to be disciplined.

By Sunday she had blocked 568 people on Twitter who were furiously accusing her of encouraging students to break the law and vote twice.

History as a giant data set: how analysing the past could help save the future
Date: Tue, 12 Nov 2019 06:00:32 GMT
From https:

Calculating the patterns and cycles of the past could lead us to a better understanding of history. Could it also help us prevent a looming crisis? By Laura Spinney

In its first issue of 2010, the scientific journal Nature looked forward to a dazzling decade of progress. By 2020, experimental devices connected to the internet would deduce our search queries by directly monitoring our brain signals. Crops would exist that doubled their biomass in three hours. Humanity would be well on the way to ending its dependency on fossil fuels.

A few weeks later, a letter in the same journal cast a shadow over this bright future. It warned that all these advances could be derailed by mounting political instability, which was due to peak in the US and western Europe around 2020. Human societies go through predictable periods of growth, the letter explained, during which the population increases and prosperity rises. Then come equally predictable periods of decline. These asecular cyclesa last two or three centuries and culminate in widespread unrest a from worker uprisings to revolution.

Forget the evil stepmother: why step-parents are often at the heart of a happy family

From https:
Step-parents are much maligned in pop culture, but many children develop lifelong a and life-affirming a bonds with their parentas new partner. Whatas the secret of making the relationship work?

Tales of wicked stepmothers may be common in storybooks, but they are often a far cry from reality. Despite the potential challenges with step-parenting, many children develop close bonds with their mum or dadas new partner. The actor Dakota Johnson, now 30, is still on great terms with her stepfather, Antonio Banderas, who divorced her mother, Melanie Griffith, in 2014. At the Hollywood Film awards this month, the Spanish actor revealed just how close they still are. aShe calls me Papi, and I love that, you have no idea.a The Fifty Shades of Grey star described her childhood growing up with him as athe most fun a kid could havea.

They may present a contrast to the evil step-parent stereotype we see depicted in movies, but they certainly arenat alone. Since divorcing her husband six years ago, Frances Rose has maintained a close friendship with his daughter, Louise. aI first met her in 2003 when she and her siblings were very young,a she says. aHer mum handled the breakup extremely well with a lot of maturity, which made it easier to get to know her children.a

'When you're black, being alive is a success': Angel Bat Dawid, 2019's brightest new jazz star

Recording on the fly on her iPhone, the Chicago musician quit a high-end job to embrace free jazz and confront the racism that still thrives in the US

For young black girls from deprived parts of Chicago looking to play the clarinet, there arenat too many role models. aIad never even heard of the clarinet before. It didnat look cool. Iad seen saxophones, but this looked weird,a says Angel Bat Dawid, who was told she could play one in her school band. aI went to the library to work out what it sounded like, and everything I could find was Benny Goodman. I was like: damn, this corny-looking instrument with this corny-looking white dude.a

Thirty years later, Bat Dawid has hauled the clarinet out of corny white dude territory and hurled it into the cosmos. She appears at this monthas London jazz festival and her debut album The Oracle is one of the yearas best releases in any genre, where swelling vocals, warm organ chords and lilting and freaked-out clarinet lines combine in a profoundly affecting whole. It was recorded on the voice notes app of her iPhone, and takes its name from her own nickname, a character in the Matrix: aA powerful black woman, and when everyone is acting crazy, sheas chilling in her kitchen and dropping so much wisdom.

The NHS is one of the major battleground issues of the general election as parties debate the future of healthcare in the UK. Sarah Boseley and Denis Campbell discuss the extent of private company involvement in the NHS. Plus: Dan Collyns on the downfall of Evo Morales in Bolivia

When British voters are asked about their political priorities, healthcare and the state of the NHS are always at the top of the list. The upcoming election is no different and the parties are desperate to present themselves as having the best offer. The Conservatives are pledging money for new hospitals while Labour is promising to row back on the rising trend of privatisation within the health service. The opposition also points to a potential US trade deal that could put the price the NHS pays for medicines on the table.

While forced labour and slavery in the fishing industry in Thailand and other parts of the world have been brought to light in recent years, the fishing industry in Myanmar has received less attention.

However, Norway continues to explore for oil and gas at a time when the International Energy Agency and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded that meeting the vital 1.5C target in the Paris agreement requires that the majority of existing fossil fuel reserves cannot be burned.

Gareth Southgate and England have just dealt with a modern problem in a pleasingly modern way. Over the course of 999 previous internationals it stretches credulity to imagine nothing like the contretemps between Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez has been seen before, but the vast majority of England get-togethers took place in eras when it was perfectly possible and reasonable to hush things up and keep any small-scale disturbances in house.

These days that is not so easy, and before social media could have a field day with speculation and jigsaw identification England fronted up and laid the matter to rest. Southgateas statement that emotions from the Liverpool v Manchester City game on Sunday were still too raw was rational and understandable, and subsequently Sterling issued an apology and accepted his share of the blame.

VAR a letas press pause on Boxing Day and check if we want to rewind technology | Richard Williams
Date: Tue, 12 Nov 2019 09:00:07 GMT
From https:

Like Brexit, whatever sensible arguments are made for VAR, they are swamped by the damage it has caused and we need time to reflect on what kind of football we want to see

Three minutes and 47 seconds is a long time in football. An awful lot can happen. Twenty years ago in the Nou Camp it was long enough to enable Manchester United to recover from a position of defeat at the end of 90 minutes against Bayern Munich and, with the German clubas ribbons already on the trophy, to use added time first to draw level and then to win the Champions League final. Those three minutes contained as much drama and emotion as some entire seasons.

At Tottenham Hotspuras new stadium on Saturday three minutes and 47 seconds was the length of time in which no football took place at all. On the hour, two minutes after Son Heung-min had put the home side ahead, Sheffield United celebrated an equaliser when David McGoldrick applied the finish to Enda Stevensa cross from the left. But then the referee, Graham Scott, passed the decision over to the VAR room at Stockley Park. Twenty-two players stood around waiting as, 20 miles away in west London, it took almost four minutes of deliberation to conclude that John Lundstram had been offside by the length of his big toe when he received the ball on the right wing before sending in a cross that was half-cleared to John Fleck, who fed the ball to Stevens before it was turned across to McGoldrick.

Calculating the patterns and cycles of the past could lead us to a better understanding of history. Could it also help us prevent a looming crisis? By Laura Spinney

In its first issue of 2010, the scientific journal Nature looked forward to a dazzling decade of progress. By 2020, experimental devices connected to the internet would deduce our search queries by directly monitoring our brain signals. Crops would exist that doubled their biomass in three hours. Humanity would be well on the way to ending its dependency on fossil fuels.

A few weeks later, a letter in the same journal cast a shadow over this bright future. It warned that all these advances could be derailed by mounting political instability, which was due to peak in the US and western Europe around 2020. Human societies go through predictable periods of growth, the letter explained, during which the population increases and prosperity rises. Then come equally predictable periods of decline. These asecular cyclesa last two or three centuries and culminate in widespread unrest a from worker uprisings to revolution.

It is weird how the little mermaid is called Ariel, isnat it? She has access to water and a bit of land, but definitely not the sky. No wonder she is frustrated. I have many thoughts like this as I hang upside down, blood rushing to my brain. Despite the fact I am wrapped in and suspended by the thinnest material, I feel safe and my mind is free to roam. Such is the paradox of aerial yoga (Flying Fantastic, three classes for APS45, flyingfantastic.co.uk/buy-credits). Restorative and beginner-friendly, it is suitable for people with mobility issues, and also me; it would not be unfair to describe this as yoga in hammocks.

Iyengar yoga has long made use of slings to push positions further, but aerial yoga is different a derived as much from the circus as the subcontinent. Tutor Edel Wigan shows us how to wrap ourselves in large loops of fabric suspended from a rig, and trust them with our weight. It is a bit like trapeze. (Wigan devised her company, Flying Fantastic, with her husband, Chris, when they lived in Argentina a where circus schools are 10 a penny.) The class starts gently, leaning on ropes, swaying in circles to learn to trust them with our weight. We jump inside and expand the cloth.
