A 10-day Carnival cruise in the South Pacific descended into a violent mess

Sunday 10:50 GMT

A Carnival cruise devolved into near-anarchy during its 10 days in the South Pacific, with some passengers locking themselves inside their cabins, others kicked off the ship and security guards brawling with vacationers in a bare-knuckles melee.

As a goodwill gesture, Carnival said, passengers who made it through the cruise have been offered a 25-percent-off coupon for their next one. Strangers caught in a sex act on Delta flight could face felony charges, authorities say. British Airways apologizes after passengers say bedbug-infested flight left them ‘covered in bites’. A man got a middle seat on a 13-hour flight.

Time for Eden Hazard to show he can produce his best on the big occasion

Sunday 05:09 GMT

It feels unfair to bill this tie as Hazard versus Messi instead of Hazard versus Messi, Suárez, Andrés Iniesta, Ivan Rakitic, Paulinho and the £96.8m

Eventually Eden Hazard conjured an equaliser, whipping in a superb shot from 25 yards, and while Chelsea went on to lose 4-1, that one moment was a reminder that the Belgian has done his utmost to lift the unease. He was at it again in Monday’s 3-0 win over West Brom, linking with Olivier Giroud to score the opener before grabbing his 15th goal of the season with another solo effort.

‘I would distinguish early Hitler from later Hitler’: inside the University of Chicago’s fight over free speech and Steve Bannon

Sunday 16:21 GMT

University of Chicago professor Luigi Zingales is defending his invitation to former Trump campaign chief executive and White House chief strategist Steve Bannon for a campus debate on globalization, telling about 50 students at a town hall this week that the onetime face of Breitbart News is valuable to unpacking how outsider Donald Trump could rise to the presidency.

It was an opportunity Zingales saw as a chance to emphasize why he believes exposing speech — all speech — matters:

Bundesliga: Matchday 23 roundup

Sunday 10:50 GMT

Wolfsburg struck early through Daniel Didavi, who got ahead of Juan Bernat to meet Yunus Malli's cross and nods the ball beyond Sven Ulreich.

Franck Ribery was lucky to stay on the pitch after VAR reviewed an elbow on Renato Steffen as Wolfsburg continued to frustrate Bayern, who welcomed back Thiago Alcantara after a long injury lay-off but benched Robert Lewandowski. Bayern missed the chance to draw level when they were awarded a controversial penalty for a challenge on Corentin Tolisso, but Arjen Robben saw his resulting spot kick palmed on to the post superbly by Koen Casteels.

Yotam Ottolenghi’s kale recipes

Sunday 10:50 GMT

If Popeye had been born in the 21st century, he would surely be shoving kale down his famous pipe to boost his powers, rather than spinach, and it wouldn’t have come out of a tin, either.

Divide the broth and dumplings between four bowls, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, drizzle over the oil and serve piping hot.

Gillian Jacobs Is Ready to Let Go of Her Fears

Sunday 08:05 GMT

In 2008, not long before she was cast as Britta Perry in NBC’s “Community,” Gillian Jacobs — a theater nerd with Juilliard creds — appeared in Stephen Adly Guirgis’s “The Little Flower of East Orange,” directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman at the Public Theater. “Little Flower” was a hard act to follow.

In a surprisingly emotional interview at the Public’s Library restaurant, Ms. Jacobs, 35, talked about conquering her fears and why her role as Mickey in Netflix’s “Love,” whose final season begins March 9, resonates.

Sunday 14:30 GMT

He said it could take as little as 15 minutes for a law-abiding citizen with a concealed weapons permit to walk out of his store with an assault weapon.

While the assault rifle used by the suspected gunman was legally purchased and required a five-day waiting period, some want to see future sales of the weapon halted. Wednesday's mass shooting at a Florida high school has reignited the debate over gun laws.

Why Democrats should support open borders

Sunday 14:30 GMT

The Democrats should reject the bill and argue for the politically popular, economically sound, and morally right position: open borders.

In the face of this recalcitrance, the Democrats must rethink their current incoherent immigration policy and argue robustly for more open borders. The Republican plan would have allocated $25bn for border security, ended the diversity visa, and substantially restricted family reunification visas in exchange for a 12-year path for citizenship, including “good moral character checks”, for the 1.8 million people who were qualified for the Daca program.

Inside the booming, billion-dollar business of esports

Sunday 14:30 GMT

The International Olympic Committee is talking to esports representatives about possible inclusion in the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

Munich Security Conference: Europe's elusive common security policy

Sunday 14:30 GMT

European leaders of course need to look beyond border security — and their differences on how to best manage people trying to enter its external border — as they attempt to define a common European security policy.

At the Munich Security Conference, ministers and senior officials from across the continent offered their proposals and visions to secure the bloc in an ever more insecure world. But the variety of proposals raises questions about whether their leaders agree enough on the bloc's basic security priorities to be able to establish a common policy.

Saturday 23:41 GMT

A 7.2 magnitude quake rocked Mexico on Friday, causing minor damage to buildings in the southern state of Oaxaca, but with no preliminary reports of deaths.

In Mexico City, tall buildings swayed for more than a minute as seismic alarms sounded, with older structures in the chic Condesa neighborhood knocking into each other, and some cracks appearing in plaster and paintwork. Two young men standing by a building that collapsed during a 19 September earthquake were still hugging minutes after the tremor.
