Love in the time of global warming
SO IT'S January 1 2018 – can you believe it? At one time the year 2000 was science fiction and so it has proved to be ever since. Women are now selling their breast milk on social media to other mothers – I suppose the equivalent of a wet nurse, as was common in the past. But one of the good advances I witnessed last week for the first time, a young woman breastfeeding her little baby in a cafe in the centre of Belfast and there was something so warm and loving about it and, praise the Lord, no-one paid any attention. The big advance, although there are many disadvantages, is social media. You only hear the bad things and they are serious, especially the trolling and the bullying. An ill wind doesn't have a silver lining and the damage is enormous. But having a mobile phone is now essential because the world has changed and keeping in touch is more difficult than ever, such is the speed of life and there's a security about having the ability to ring someone in an … [Read more...] about Anne Hailes: Barra and Frank will doubtless dignify the worst of forecasts in 2018

I AM amazed at how many women and girls I know attended the big Women’s March in London last weekend.Some of them had never been on a march in their young lives.Some of them had not been on a march since the anti-apartheid protests of decades ago. They ranged from a gang of my 14-year-old daughter’s classmates to a venerable columnist at the Daily Telegraph, who marched with her 21-year-old daughter.All of them had a great time — even my mate at the Telegraph, who was afraid that her pro-Brexit beliefs would leave her out of step with other marchers.All of them, from 14-year-old girls to fiftysomething women, despise Donald Trump’s casual, crass sexism.All of them are appalled by Trump’s apparent contempt for women. As the father of a growing daughter, I share their feelings. And even as she wows them in America, I bet Theresa May does too.May is on record about what she calls Trump’s “inappropriate” reflections on women, … [Read more...] about We all have reasons to be glad that an oaf like Donald Trump is in the White House

AS DAVID Cameron bids farewell to No10 and his life as Prime Minister he has a lot of memories to look back on.Away from the serious business of debating policy in the House of Commons there have been a lot of fun times for him in the top job.From hugging a husky, being upstaged by a schoolgirl and meeting One Direction, here at The Sun we’ve selected a few of our favourites.Who could forget when, as leader of the opposition, he hugged a husky to show people the Tory Party’s green credentials?He was out in Norway to visit a glacier to see first hand the effects of global warming so a carbon neutral sled was definitely the only way to travel.What will papers do now there won’t be the obligatory shots of David Cameron on holiday sipping a beer or pointing at fish? Summer simply won’t be summer without him pictured on a beach in Cornwall or “chillaxing” abroad.Don’t believe the polls was the lesson learned last year when David Cameron led … [Read more...] about From hugging huskies to meeting One Direction: David Cameron’s life as PM in pictures
ENVIRONMENT Secretary Michael Gove’s plan to abolish petrol and diesel engine cars after 2040 has the whiff of pure fantasy.And with one wave of his magic wand, the speccy little wizard made the internal combustion engine disappear in a puff of non-toxic smoke.But how will our bespectacled magician power the nine million electric cars that will replace the petrol and diesel motors that 99 per cent of us have parked outside? Hot air, presumably.Gove and his successors are highly unlikely to build enough new nuclear reactors to make his green dream come true.Michael Gove is a decent, intelligent man but these plans to end 150 years of the British car industry are as uncosted, unrealistic and stark raving loony as anything that ever dribbled from Jeremy Corbyn’s lying cakehole.But we have been here before with politicians spewing dangerous waste on the subject of what our motors are doing to our world.I am one of the millions of gullible suckers who bought their first diesel … [Read more...] about Michael Gove’s plan to abolish petrol and diesel engines in favour of electric cars has the whiff of pure fantasy
At a noisy café in central Paris, three friends twist open a small snack jar and peer inside. "Woo, they smell kind of like paprika," says Katie Evans. She sticks her finger in the jar and removes a tiny grilled grasshopper. This is a delicacy in Mexico, but very uncommon in the European capital haute cuisine. Evans pops it in her mouth. "Ooh it's spicy," she says. "All the way through, from head to tail, it tastes like pumpkin seeds." These grasshopper snacks are produced by a gourmet spice company called Terre Exotique. At the moment, edible insects are only available by special order. But in the very near future, these crunchy critters (as well as crickets, locusts and thousands of other insect species) are expected to become more popular in hungry Western countries. That's because the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is encouraging wealthy nations to bump burgers and bite into bugs. Protein for a growing population With some seven billion people … [Read more...] about Are insects the food of the future?
