The dark web is one of the most mysterious corners of the internet, often appearing in headlines as a tool used by individuals for nefarious means. In the past few weeks alone, a Southampton man was jailed for attempting to buy a Glock 19 semi-automatic gun on the dark web, the BBC reports. Meanwhile, ZDNet claims that “prolific” drug seller from Florida was charged and forced to forfeit $4m (£3.3m) worth of bitcoin after he was caught trading “powerful tranquillisers and painkillers” on the network. The dark web has gained a reputation for being a hotbed of criminal activity.

The Royal Navy, the RAF and the British Army will all undergo huge changes as part of new programmes designed to put our Armed Forces at the forefront of a new 'Space Race' with Russian and China. Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt and the MoD have today announced that Joint Forces Command will be "transformed" into a new organisation called Strategic Command, as part of a raft of changes to our Armed Forces, to tackle what the MoD calls evolving threats in the ‘grey zone’ threats and 'the space domain'.

THE COCAINE THAT WASHES IN FROM THE SEA The last man you come across in Mexico can be found at the following coordinates: 18º 12’ 9” N and 87º 50’ 36” W. He is almost always there working on his rooftop terrace. His name is Don Luis and his home faces the Caribbean Sea beyond the ubiquitous mangrove swamp. If you walk five minutes to the right, you are in a different country, but if you go left, you are in Xcalak in an hour – the first town within the Mexican border. Don Luis is a muscular 58-year-old with dark hair and a moustache, and whose isolated dwelling is situated on one of oddest borders in the world.

Another on the list might be the lack of shared spaces where people from different walks of life can meet and mingle. If politics has become tribal, perhaps that is a result of people being walled off from others—in some cases literally—eroding the sense of commonality and community. That is the intriguing message of a recent book by Eric Klinenberg, a sociologist at New York University and the author of “Palaces for the People: How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life” (Crown, 2018). The title comes from a phrase used by Andrew Carnegie, an American steel baron of the early 20th century, to describe the thousands of public libraries he helped build with his donations.
