North Korea warns of food crisis, slashes rations before next...

Today 14:30 GMT

North Korea has warned that it is facing a food shortfall of some 1.4 million tons in 2019 and has been forced to almost halve rations, blaming high temperatures, drought, floods and United Nations sanctions in a memo seen by Reuters on Thursday.

North Korea said it would import 200,000 tons of food and produce about 400,000 tons of early crops, but that it would still be left with a gap and from January would cut daily rations to 300 grams (10.5 ounces) per person from 550 grams.

US must address North Korea's abhorrent human rights record at Trump-Kim summit, report urges

Today 14:30 GMT

“There is a clear nexus between human rights and national security: forced labor for the regime – labor that is likely being used as part of the missile and weapons program, and which is likely being used as a guinea pig population to test chemical and biological weapons,” asserted Olivia Enos, policy analyst for The Heritage Foundation and author of a new report titled: “Leveraging U.S. Law to Advocate for Human Rights in Talks with North Korea.” The report underscored that “diplomacy should be tied not only to concessions on its nuclear program but to human rights improvements,” noting that forced labor serves as a financial resource for the continued development of North Korea’s rogue missile and nuclear program.

Human spirit climbs to another level in Free Solo

Today 09:55 GMT

While Free Solo is a film that cauterises cynicism, it would be a shoo-in for most gripping footwear commercial as well as best cinematography.

Alex Honnold’s solo and ropeless climb of the 3,000ft vertical wall of El Capitan in Yosemite has been called a great athletic achievement but this is absurd. It’s tempting to argue that Free Solo should win the Oscar for best documentary simply on the strength of its subject.

Should you ever send nude pictures taken for an old lover to a new partner?

Thursday 16:20 GMT

According to Cosmopolitan, sending an explicit selfie past its stare-by date to a new lover really does pose ethical and practical dilemmas.

If that sounds too much like Kenneth “Civilisation” Clark, cite Picasso’s orgiastic nude etchings in his Vollard Suite or Tracey Emin’s paintings of herself naked and haunted by loneliness and grief. Art might just show someone so lacking in heart that they expect up-to-the-minute proof of a lover’s appearance that it isn’t like that.

How human food is changing wildlife

Friday 15:25 GMT

We're still trying to understand just how these environments - that now feature all these human food subsidies - are rearranging these communities [of wildlife]."

In an increasingly urbanised landscape, bears and other wildlife eat more "human food", which is shifting their behaviour and biology. A study in the journal Scientific Reports found that bears with a diet rich in human food hibernated as much as 50 days less in the winter.

'I can't even look at the cover': the most disturbing books

Friday 10:51 GMT

Last week we asked you to share the books that have most shocked or disturbed you – and boy, you guys responded with a passion.

Tomimber. “The Kindly Ones by Jonathan Littell was hard work to read simply because it was so graphic and disturbing and will remain as one of my most thought-provoking books of war and its awful effects.” This book destroyed me for weeks; it’s upsetting just writing a couple of sentences about it.”

Climate change cause of most under-reported humanitarian crises, report finds

Friday 09:55 GMT

Climate change was responsible for the majority of under-reported humanitarian disasters last year, according to analysis of more than a million online news stories.

Sven Harmeling, the climate change lead for Care International, which commissioned the new report, said: “Not only are the people who live in the world’s poorest countries most vulnerable to climate change, but they are also the least equipped to address its increasing impacts. Media must not turn a blind eye to such crises and the role of climate change.”
