Investors in both the stock and bond markets have yet to grasp the longer-term implications of mind-boggling deficits and an onerous, permanent debt burden.

Wednesday 09:57 GMT

You don’t have to be Catholic or to be part of Christian church that observes Lent to make your own journey through the season.

Thursday 19:07 GMT

For nearly four centuries, a swath of farming and fishing villages on China’s southeast coast has survived as a stronghold of Catholicism, sometimes flourishing, other times withering, its fate often dependent on decisions or conflicts far away in Beijing or Europe.

Friday 14:33 GMT

He mentions TV shows such as Insecure (based on Issa Rae’s web series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl) and Donald Glover’s oddball hip-hop comedy-drama Atlanta; as well as Dee Rees’s Netflix feature Mudbound, nominated for four Oscars (including a historic first female cinematographer nomination for Rachel Morrison, who also shot Black Panther).

For when Black Panther is not leaping off buildings and on to speeding cars, intercepting arms deals that could unleash anarchy on the world, he is king of the (fictional) African country Wakanda.

Friday 19:07 GMT

I thought about the tremendous love your father and I could feel the moment we first met you and the lives you touched in those 55 days here on earth.

The last time I bought you clothing was the outfit you wore as you passed away in my arms on August 16, 2013… a day I will never forget. I found myself pulling out my phone and snapping a picture, wanting that reminder of what could have been.

Saturday 19:05 GMT

However, Dr. Pearson tells The Sun that there are a number of different ways we could live forever – as long as you can make it to the year 2050.

"You might even have ones of different genders and different ages, some old, young, female, male – there might be new genders by 2050 as well, so several other ones you can pick too." He explains that we'll have to wait until around "2045, 2050" before we'll be able to create these strong brain-to-machine links, and says the cost will be very high initially.
