China orders hundreds of thousands of private cars to have GPS trackers installed for monitoring

The Guardian - 2 hours 45 min ago

Hundreds of thousands of vehicles affected by edict covering part of Xinjiang following outbreaks of violence – and no petrol for owners who don’t comply

Security officials in China’s violence-stricken north-west have ordered residents to install GPS tracking devices in their vehicles so authorities are able to keep permanent tabs on their movements.

The compulsory measure, which came into force this week and could eventually affect hundreds of thousands of vehicles, is being rolled out in the Bayingolin Mongol Autonomous Prefecture of Xinjiang, a sprawling region that borders Central Asia and sees regular eruptions of deadly violence.

How to choose a picture book for your child in a divided world? | Miriam Rosenbloom

The Guardian - 5 hours 1 min ago

When we read to a child we are also reading to ourselves – and, in our increasingly polarised society, small choices make a big difference

I have spent a lot of time over the past few years reading picture books. As a mother of a three-year-old and working in children’s publishing, sometimes it feels like reading picture books is the most important thing I do. Books about faces, colours, numbers, dreams, dogs, journeys and jobs. Books about how we live, how others live, how people lived in the past.

While a baby’s brain is exploding with the early possibilities of colour and sound in that beautiful pre-language psychedelic bubble when everything is wild and new, we hold them, sing nursery rhymes, teach them the sounds of farm animals and how to recognise the shapes of keys and candles. These little books convey a social and a moral world that in many ways feels strangely antiquated. They describe a world that we can understand but it’s not the world we are leaving to our children.

Revealed: Kim Jong-nam was gripped by fear and paranoia, says friend

The Guardian - 6 hours 5 min ago

Exclusive: Kim Jong-un’s half-brother felt powerless and conflicted over North Korea’s fate and feared for his own safety in exile

Kim Jong-nam spent his last few years highly paranoid, hiding from the regime run by his dictator half-brother while struggling with a sense of powerlessness over the fate of his homeland, according to people who knew him.

In an exclusive interview with the Guardian, a close friend and confidant of the man once heir to the North Korean dynasty talked about Kim’s open-minded views and personality that led to his exile – and possibly his death.

Long-winded speech could be early sign of Alzheimer's, says study

The Guardian - 7 hours 24 min ago

Research finds distinctive language deficits in people with mild cognitive impairment, a precursor to dementia

Rambling and long-winded anecdotes could be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease, according to research that suggests subtle changes in speech style occur years before the more serious mental decline takes hold.

The scientists behind the work said it may be possible to detect these changes and predict if someone is at risk more than a decade before meeting the threshold for an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.

Arsenal’s stroll in suburbs a minor diversion in the Arsène Wenger endgame | Barney Ronay

The Guardian - 8 hours 45 min ago
Manager has time to relax as Arsenal’s much-changed team avoid major upset against non-league Sutton United to reach FA Cup quarter-finals

For all the talk of Cup magic this was in the end an orderly out-ground experience for Arsenal, a 2-0 fifth-round victory that felt by the end like a gently convalescent night out in the southern suburbs. Gander Green Lane is a clattery low rise lodged between rows of pebble-dashed semis, its edges marked out by a row of scaffold-pole huts and the remains of a venerable wood and ironwork stand. Before kick-off Arsène Wenger could be seen signing autographs in the car park, smiling fondly on the touchline and generally looking like a man rather enjoying being in such homely surroundings after the trauma of that career-low 5-1 Champions League thrashing in Munich last week.

In the hours before the match the narrow streets around the ground had been clogged with a well-mannered crush, pubs and newsagents spilling out with amused, good-natured locals. As the Arsenal bus edged its way in and disgorged the away team there were shouts of “who are you?” but more craned necks and camera flashes and genuine curiosity at these visitors from the footballing over-world. And there was an oddly gripping intimacy about all this for Arsenal’s fans too, the usual glazed and distant superstars recast in the kitchen-sink proximity of a ground built on a more human scale.

Sutton’s Deacon dares to dream but Arsenal finally end FA Cup fairytale

The Guardian - 9 hours 15 min ago

Sutton United threw their best, their lavishly watered pitch and their streaker with a giraffe’s headdress at Arsenal but a gap worth 105 league places could not be overcome. Arsène Wenger’s team found two moments of clarity to make sure their illustrious name would not be added to the list of Sutton’s scalps this season, with Lucas Pérez and Theo Walcott stopping the pressure on Wenger from intensifying.

The Frenchman will always have the FA Cup. A trophy he has won six times during his Arsenal tenure remains key in his thoughts. It is the best chance they have of possible success this season given how they have drifted off the Premier League pace and suffered a heavy beating in Munich in the Champions League. Lincoln City are up next, the last survivors from non-league in the Cup this season.

Parliament holds three-hour debate over whether US president’s invitation should be revoked after 1.8m sign petition against visit

British MPs lined up on Monday to pour scorn on a “racist and sexist” Donald Trump, who they said should not be allowed to come to Britain for a state visit because of the risk it would embarrass the Queen.

The US president was compared to a “petulant child” and had his intelligence questioned by MPs during a three-hour debate triggered after more than 1.8m people signed a petition urging Theresa May to cancel her invitation.

Sutton United v Arsenal: FA Cup fifth round – live!

The Guardian - Mon, 02/20/2017 - 23:30

8.30pm GMT

31 mins: Sutton have half an attack, but it fizzles out with another overhit ball. There’s been plenty of those. Meanwhile, Elneny is down with some sort of non-specific malady, and needs treatment.

8.27pm GMT

29 mins: Bit of a shame that - Sutton had just been building some sort of momentum. Walcott finds some space about 40 yards out, he drives towards the box and shoots with power, but not quite the right direction and it goes over.

The Guardian - Mon, 02/20/2017 - 23:18

Juhel Miah from south Wales was removed from plane in Reykjavik despite suspension of president’s travel ban

A British Muslim schoolteacher travelling to New York last week as a member of a school party from south Wales was denied entry to the United States.

Juhel Miah and a group of children and other teachers were about to take off from Iceland on 16 February on their way to the US when he was removed from the plane at Reykjavik. The previous week, on the 10 February, a US appeals court had upheld a decision to suspend Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily banned entry to the country from seven Muslim-majority countries.
