  • Louise Glück wins the 2020 Nobel prize in literature – follow the announcement live

    The US poet has won ‘for her unmistakable poetic voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal’

    The Guardian’s resident poetry expert, Carol Rumens, cast an eye over a poem from Glück’s most recent collection Faithful and Virtuous Night, back in 2014. You can read it below.

    Related: Poem of the week: A Work of Fiction by Louise Glück

    Explaining their decision, one of the Nobel committee says Gluck’s voice “is candid and uncompromising and signals that this poet wants to be understood. She has humour and biting wit.

    “Even if her autobiographical background is significant in her works, she is not to be regarded as a confessional poet. She seeks universality ... Three characteristics unite to reoccur in her works: the topic of family life, an austere but also playful intelligence, and a refined sense of composition.”

  • Kamala Harris and Mike Pence debate reaction, Trump calls Covid diagnosis 'blessing' – live updates

    Lisa Lerer writes for the New York Times this morning on how weirdly normal and ordinary last night’s vice presidential debate felt in the midst of a pandemic that has reached the president himself, and in the aftermath of last week’s tumultuous Trump-Biden debate. She says:

    As candidates have done for decades, they largely dodged the most interesting questions. When asked whether they had discussed safeguards or procedures “when it comes to the issue of presidential disability” a topical question given the two septuagenarians topping the tickets both avoided giving an answer.

    Mr. Pence refused to say whether he believed voters deserved more information about President Trump’s health, nor did he commit to a peaceful transfer of power. Ms. Harris refused to answer whether a future Biden administration would pack the Supreme Court despite Mr. Pence’s best efforts.

    In his final remarks of the debate, Pence pleaded for comity, a hard-to-swallow pitch given that he serves under a president who thrives on inflaming the country’s divisions and coming after a debate in which he frequently interrupted Ms. Harris.

    His words sounded shockingly like the standard political pablum of a previous era. If the Trump campaign wanted to project some sense of normalcy, in the middle of this unending pandemic, Mr. Pence may have accomplished that goal for the 90 minutes of the debate.

    Here’s some more on the dismayed and outraged reaction of relatives of Covid-19 victims to Donald Trump’s words“Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life” from Danielle Renwick. She reports:

    When Marya Sherron read those comments, “It physically hurt,” she said. “It feels like he’s calling those that died like losers, like they were too weak to combat it.”

    Amanda Kloots, whose husband, the actor Nick Cordero, died in July, called Trump’s comments “disgraceful”.

  • UK coronavirus live: hospitals 10 days away from 'critical' stage because of rising Covid cases, health minister says

    Latest updates: government warned people will seek ‘one last blow out’ if new restrictions on pubs in England are delayed until next week

    NHS Test and Trace has seen its worst week on record for the proportion of contacts it manages to trace, PA Media reports.

    Some 68.6% of close contacts of people who tested positive for Covid-19 in England were reached through the system in the week ending September 30, the lowest weekly percentage since test and trace began, and down from 72.5% in the previous week.

    Earlier this week Donald Trump claimed on Twitter that in most populations coronavirus would be “far less lethal” than flu.

    Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!

    Of all death occurrences between January and August 2020, there were 48,168 deaths due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) compared with 13,619 deaths due to pneumonia and 394 deaths due to influenza.

    Influenza and pneumonia was mentioned on more death certificates than Covid-19, however Covid-19 was the underlying cause of death in over three times as many deaths between January and August 2020.

    More than three times as many deaths were recorded between January and August this year where Covid-19 was the underlying cause compared to influenza and pneumonia.

    The mortality rate for Covid-19 is also significantly higher than influenza and pneumonia rates for both 2020 and the five-year average.

  • Coronavirus live news: court strikes down partial lockdown order for Madrid; Brazil cases pass 5m

    Madrid court strikes down partial lockdown order in city; Trump returns to Oval Office against CDC’s isolation guidelines; France sees record cases rise

    Iran has registered a record high 4,392 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, taking the total to 488,236.

    Health ministry spokeswoman Sima Sadat Lari told state TV there have been 230 new deaths, taking the total to 27,888 in the worst-hit country in the Middle East.

    Prisoners have been spending 23 hours behind their cell doors. A second wave will only prolong their distress, writes an anonymous prison officer in the UK.

    Since March, each prisoner has had only 10 minutes to shower and 30 minutes to exercise every day.

    At first, when the whole country was in lockdown, most prisoners seemed willing to accept this regime, as they could see what was happening in the world outside through their TVs. But as lockdown restrictions have lifted, the regime in prison has remained largely unchanged. We’ve had men locked up for more than 23 hours a day in hot, poorly ventilated cells.

  • Mystery disease killing Italy's kiwi fruit trees baffles scientists

    Government taskforce to study sickness devastating kiwi orchards across country

    The leaves wither and face down as if to escape the sun; the roots darken and rot. Then the leaves fall: within 10 days, all of them are gone, leaving the fruit under the sun. Within one or two years, the plant dries up and dies. There is no cure.

    In Italy, kiwi trees are dying en masse, and no one knows why. Last month, the Italian government announced a taskforce to study a mysterious sickness that is devastating kiwi orchards in the country, leaving scientists baffled. “Damages to production are causing serious suffering to farms,” the agriculture minister, Teresa Bellanova, said, calling the situation an “emergency” and saying the country needs “help from all the experts”.

  • UN accused over failure to investigate 'war on drugs' killings in the Philippines

    Human rights groups calling for a probe into president Rodrigo Duterte’s anti-narcotics crackdown say abuses continue

    The UN human rights council has been accused of a “collective failure” over its decision not to call for an investigation into the tens of thousands of killings alleged to have occurred under Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte’s “war on drugs”.

    Human rights groups and UN experts had repeatedly called for an inquiry into the anti-narcotics crackdown, launched by the president after he won the 2016 election on a promise to rid the country of drugs.

  • NSW deputy premier John Barilaro to lose driving licence – report

    The Nationals leader reportedly has a string of driving infringements including speeding in a ministerial car

    The New South Wales deputy premier, John Barilaro, will reportedly lose his driving licence after a string of driving infringements in the lead up to his decision to take mental health leave last month.

    The Daily Telegraph reported on Thursday that Barilaro, who took four weeks of leave from mid-September after his threat to blow up the Coalition government over plans to protect koala habitat backfired, is on the verge of losing his licence after being caught speeding while behind the wheel of a ministerial car.

  • UK furloughed hospitality workers: tell us about your experiences

    We want to hear how you are finding it and what concerns you have for the future

    With the government furlough scheme coming to an end on 31 October, more than a third of UK employers plan to make staff redundant over the next three months, according to research.

    The hospitality industry has been one of the worst sectors affected with fears that 300,000 people could lose their job. Earlier this week, the UK’s largest cinema operator Cineworld confirmed it will temporarily close all of its 127 sites.

  • WTO to appoint first female boss as shortlist narrows to two

    With UK’s Liam Fox eliminated the contest is now between Yoo Myung-hee and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

    The World Trade Organization is set to be run by a woman for the first time in its 25-year history after it was announced that the final choice to be its new director-general will be between South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee and Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

    Britain’s former international trade secretary Liam Fox failed to make the final shortlist as the number of candidates was whittled down from five to two.

  • Italian women take legal action over foetus graves marked with mothers' names

    More than 100 women launch action as activists say practice is serious violation of human rights and privacy

    A group of more than 100 Italian women have asked prosecutors to investigate who is behind the burial for nearly a decade of foetuses in graves marked with the names of their mothers in a cemetery in Rome.

    The practice only came to light last week after one of the women, whose curiosity was sparked after reading about the so-called “fields of angels” in local newspapers, discovered a plot with a wooden cross bearing her name and the date on which the foetus was buried at Prima Porta cemetery. She subsequently posted about her experience on Facebook.

  • New Zealand National party leader yearns for the star treatment

    In the election Judith Collins is up against one of the most popular PMs in recent times

    “I’ve been having an awfully fun time, can you tell?” Judith Collins, the leader of New Zealand’s centre-right National party enthused, to a campaign trail meeting packed with her admirers outside the South Island city of Dunedin. “I can’t stop grinning.”

    It was true; she could not. Collins, the country’s opposition leader, is running in the 17 October election against one of the country’s most popular prime ministers of recent times, Jacinda Ardern, who is mobbed for selfies wherever she goes – with such large and closely packed crowds that security and Covid-19 precautions often appear to be cast aside.

  • Germany fears spiralling Covid spread as cases rise suddenly

    Rate of new infections reaches 4,000 with predictions it could soon exceed 10,000 a day

    Germany’s leading public health body has warned that the country’s coronavirus infection rate is in danger of spiralling out of control, amid a significant overnight rise in new cases to 4,000, and predictions the figure could soon reach more than 10,000 a day.

    Lothar Wieler, the president of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), said: “It is possible that we will see more than 10,000 cases a day and that the virus will spread uncontrollably.”

  • West and central Africa's closed schools putting children at risk, Unicef warns

    Only seven out of 24 countries have reopened classrooms with Covid-safe measures, leaving millions unable to access education

    Only one in three countries in west and central Africa have reopened their schools, leaving children at risk of child marriage, early pregnancy and recruitment by local armed groups, Unicef has warned.

    Six months after schools across the region closed under lockdown measures, just seven out of 24 countries – Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Chad, the Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Sierra Leone – have been able to put measures in place to make classrooms safe for reopening, including hygiene stations and social distancing.

    Helga Wauters accused of botching caesarean after drinking, and killing Xynthia Hawke, 28

    An anaesthetist has gone on trial for manslaughter in France, accused of botching a caesarean after drinking, a procedure that left a young British woman dead.

    Xynthia Hawke, 28, from Somerset, suffered a catastrophic cardiac arrest after the medic pushed a tube down her oesophagus and not her windpipe and then failed to realise her error, despite Hawke vomiting and crying out in pain.

  • Sabrina Dhowre Elba: ‘The old idea of aid is dead’

    The Canadian model and Ifad ambassador explains how she and husband Idris Elba hope to make a difference to rural communities in Africa

    Since her marriage to British actor Idris Elba last year, Sabrina Dhowre Elba has found her love of Africa being rekindled. But it was her mother who persuaded Elba to take up her new role as an activist.

    The actress and Vogue cover model is being credited with convincing the Canadian government to be the first to pledge $6m (£3.5m) to a UN agency Covid fund for struggling farmers after a persuasive Zoom chat with ministers while the Elbas were themselves in isolation with mild cases of the virus.

  • World’s garment workers face ruin as fashion brands refuse to pay $16bn

    Analysis of trade figures reveals huge power imbalance as suppliers and workers in poorest parts of the world bear cost of Covid downturn

    Powerful US and European fashion companies have refused to pay overseas suppliers for more than $16bn (£12.3bn) of goods since the outbreak of Covid-19, with devastating implications for garment workers across the world, according to analysis of newly released import data.

    Two US-based groups, the Center for Global Workers’ Rights (CGWR) and the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC), used previously unpublished import databases to calculate that garment factories and suppliers from across the world lost at least $16.2bn in revenue between April and June this year as brands cancelled orders or refused to pay for clothing orders they had placed before the coronavirus outbreak.

  • Behind China’s ‘pork miracle’: how technology is transforming rural hog farming

    As Chinese demand for pork grows and grows, traditional small-scale farms are being replaced by vast, AI-assisted operations that feel more like smartphone factories than bucolic countryside havens

    In November 2018, I travelled to Guangzhou, a city of about 14 million people in southern China. Late autumn is the time for making lap yuk, a type of preserved pork that is a local speciality, and across town I would often spot slabs of meat hanging from high-rise apartment balconies, tied up with string and swaying next to shirts and sheets left out to dry. To make lap yuk, a piece of raw pork belly is soaked in a blend of rice wine, salt, soy sauce and spices, then hung out to cure in the damp, cold autumn air. The fat becomes translucent and imparts a savoury-sweet taste to any stir-fried vegetable dish. A relative of mine claims that only southern China can make preserved pork like this. The secret is the native spores and bacteria that are carried on the wind there.

    Guangzhou was the first stop on a journey I was taking in order to try to understand how artificial intelligence is transforming China’s pork industry. The country is the world’s largest producer of pork, and the story of how it has ramped up production in recent years to feed its growing middle class is sometimes described as “China’s pork miracle”. While overall meat consumption still trails behind countries such as the US, China’s annual pork consumption of 54m tonnes – the highest total worldwide, though some countries still consume more per capita – is only expected to grow in the coming years. Now, in a bid to satisfy this growing demand, farmers are turning to AI.

  • 'We're being massacred': Colombia accused of failing to stop murders of activists

    At least 223 social leaders have been murdered this year as Amnesty International report condemns government inaction

    Activists in Colombia have warned that they continue to face extermination despite the coronavirus pandemic, as Amnesty International accused the country’s government of doing little to protect them.

    At least 223 social leaders – community activists defending human, environmental, and land rights – have been murdered this year, according to local watchdog Indepaz.

  • Italian PM urges UK to do right thing on Brexit deal

    Giuseppe Conte under pressure from Italian exporters to ensure favourable outcome on withdrawal agreement

    Italy’s prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, has urged the British government to come good on a Brexit deal but admitted it was currently “difficult to feel optimistic” amid legal wrangling over the withdrawal agreement.

    “Obviously the legislative move in the UK creates tension,” said Conte, referring to Boris Johnson’s tabling of a bill that violates key elements of the agreement reached with Brussels last year.

  • Kamala Harris and Mike Pence clash over coronavirus response in vice-presidential debate

    Pence defended the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic while Harris called it ‘the greatest failure of any presidential administration’

    Kamala Harris accused the Trump-Pence White House of presiding over the “greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country” in its handling of the coronavirus pandemic during the first and only vice-presidential debate of the 2020 election.

    Vice-president Mike Pence forcefully defended Donald Trump’s handling of the crisis that has killed more than 210,000 Americans, as Wednesday night’s debate in Salt Lake City unfolded in the shadow of the president’s hospitalization for Covid-19, which has thrown the government into upheaval and upended the presidential race four weeks before election day.

    ‘I don’t agree with anything that comes with seeing Iran as our enemy,’ says singer Liraz Charhi

    An Israeli singer of Persian heritage is set to release an album she made by working in secret with Iranian musicians, her long-held aspiration for artistic collaboration despite bitter animosity between the two states.

    Using encrypted instant-messaging apps like Telegram and by wiring money through third countries, such as the UK and Turkey, Liraz Charhi said she spent months of sleepless nights fearing those who associated would be in danger.

    Exclusive: majorities in seven countries favour Joe Biden and rate Donald Trump poorly

    Fewer than one in 10 Europeans expect next month’s US presidential election to be completely free and fair, and an overwhelming majority say they would like Joe Biden to triumph over Donald Trump.

    According to a YouGov tracker survey in Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden, in only one of these countries – Italy – are more than a tenth of voters confident that the American electoral process will prove irreproachable.

  • New Zealand whole again as Auckland lockdown ends

    Biggest city is once more free of curbs on gatherings and social distancing in restaurants and bars after beating second wave

    New Zealand is again a country united in its response to coronavirus, with Auckland joining the rest of the nation on the lowest alert level.

    Auckland was freed from restrictions on gatherings and social distancing requirements in restaurants and bars at midnight on Wednesday. That day three new cases were announced, bringing the total of active cases to 37. Key to lowering the alert level was the absence of active cases in the community, meaning all current cases are in quarantine facilities or managed isolation at home.

  • Trump calls Covid diagnosis 'blessing from God' amid false treatment claims

    President returns to Oval Office despite concerns he should be self-isolating as virus spreads in White House

    Donald Trump has called his Covid-19 infection “a blessing from God” as he returned to the Oval Office on Wednesday despite concerns that he should be self-isolating, as the virus continued to spread among senior White House figures.
