More info Senior MP Oleg Morozov has claimed outgoing UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been in cahoots with Ukraine to blow up the Crimean Bridge, which links the annexed part of Ukraine to mainland Russia. Speaking on Russian state-backed television, Mr Morozov said: “The Crimean bridge from a military strategic view is similar to Tower Bridge in London. “If the UK is discussing a Crimean bridge attack with Ukraine, why don’t we discuss using Kalibr missiles to attack Tower Bridge in return?” In response, host Yevgeny Popov said: “I should discuss a Tower bridge attack with the Minister of Defence in China.” There is no evidence the … [Read more...] about Ukraine: Chilling threat issued to London as Russian MP vows to BLOW UP Tower Bridge

Russia attacked the Ukrainian president’s hometown and other targets with suicide drones on Sunday, as Ukraine took back full control of a strategic eastern city in a counteroffensive that has reshaped the war. Russia’s loss of Lyman , which it had been using as a transport and logistics hub, is a new blow to the Kremlin as it seeks to escalate the war by illegally annexing four regions of Ukraine and heightening its threats to use nuclear force . Ukraine’s recent gains have embarrassed Russian President Vladimir Putin and prompted rare domestic criticism . Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Sunday said his forces now controlled Lyman, after Russia’s military on Saturday announced its retreat.

Published 23 September Share close Share page Copy link About sharing By Katherine Latham Business reporter When Michelle Ruiz's mum was diagnosed with pre-diabetes in 2020, the Chicago-based chemical engineer set out to improve not just her own family's health but everyone's. "Foods containing refined carbs [like white flour] are leading drivers of chronic illnesses, including diabetes and heart disease," says Ms Ruiz. But flour, she says, is culturally ingrained in our lives. "I wanted to help people enjoy food culture - and still live long and healthy lives." In 2021, she co-founded Hyfé Foods. Hyfé uses the root network of mushrooms, called mycelium, to make an alternative to wheat flour.

Producing mycelium, however, is water-intensive and … [Read more...] about The firms making flour from mushrooms and cauliflower
D efacement is a beautiful painting —and an ugly one. Its alternative name, The Death of Michael Stewart , reveals its subject: a young Black man who died in police custody in 1983, after his arrest for allegedly writing graffiti on the wall of a subway station in New York City. Stewart’s death shocked the city’s artists, many of whom had known him personally. It resonated in particular with young Black men such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Fred Brathwaite, known as Fab 5 Freddy, who had also been labeled as graffiti artists—undisciplined, dangerous outlaws—even though they were now working on canvas and selling in galleries. “I remember being with Jean-Michel,” Fab told me. “We would look at each other, without having to say it: We know that could be us.” The six officers tried in relation to Stewart’s death were cleared two years later by an all-white jury. Basquiat took his fear and his anger and responded in the way he knew best. In the days after Stewart’s death, he … [Read more...] about The Guggenheim’s Scapegoat
