‘Four Daughters’ Review: Kaouther Ben Hania’s Cannes Documentary Uses Reenactments To Portray A Tunisian Family’s Islamist Nightmare
Using actors to bring to life story elements within documentary film is becoming a more widespread practice, if one that’s still viewed with skepticism by some purists.

How many more images of Covid disaster does it take to jolt rich countries into action? | Nesrine Malik
The crisis in India forced the west to respond. But without an ambitious global plan, other nations may suffer similar fatesAs the number of Covid-19 cases rose dramatically in Europe and the US during the early part of last year, something strange seemed to be happening in the global south. South Africa ’s entire death toll wasless than 100 at the same time that Britain was losing more than 1,000 lives a day. India ’s death rate during this period was so low that it was termed a “mystery”.More confident conclusions were drawn about Africa ’s fate; some thought it had been spared the worst of Covid-19 because it ...

‘Could It Work as a Cure? Maybe.’ A Herbal Remedy for Coronavirus Is a Hit in Africa, But Experts Have Their Doubts
On April 20, the president calls a press conference to announce a breakthrough in the fight against COVID-19. It’s a new use for an old malaria treatment, he says, one that is seeing miraculous results among the country’s most ill patients. It’s so safe that even schoolchildren could take it. In fact, he urges them to do so daily, as a preventative. He admits that he, too, is taking the medicine. No, this is not the President of the United States touting an unproven remedy for a virus that has infected nearly 5 million people worldwide. It is Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina, who is just as wi...

Nikita Khrushchev ’s Son Watched his Father Lose the Space Race. 50 Years After the Moon Landing, He Holds No Grudge
Chernobyl was an awfully nice place to be half a century or so ago. Named after the wormwood herb that grew wild there, the town had a modest population, a river that ran clear, and open land for camping and star-gazing. So that was where Sergei Khrushchev, a 34-year-old engineer, stopped with a small group of other people led by his father Nikita, 75, the former leader of the Soviet Union, in the predawn hours of July 21, 1969. The day before had been a glorious one for humanity—and particularly for the portion of humanity that was American. Just hours before, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin had ...

Study: Onconase, Malaria Drug Extends Mesothelioma Survival
A new treatment combining two existing drugs — one derived from frog eggs and another given to combat malaria — may be the key to extending mesothelioma survival. Scientists at Tongji University in Shanghai, China, discovered that mixing Onconase, an enzyme present in early-stage leopard frog embryos, with antimalarial drug dihydroartemisinin (DHA) synergistically suppressed growth and angiogenesis of malignant mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer linked to asbestos exposure. Researchers investigated the antitumor effects of the drug combination in two ways — in vitro (in a test tube) and in vivo (in a living organis...

Mike Lesser obituary
On 16 February 1963, my friend Mike Lesser, who has died aged 71, was one of the “Spies for Peace” who broke into the then secret regional seat of government (RSG-6) near Reading in Berkshire. The result, that Easter, was the publication of the pamphlet “Danger! Official Secret! RSG-6”, which revealed – with phone numbers and names – the administrative network of underground bunkers prepared for a nuclear strike. RSG-6 was besieged by Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament Aldermaston marchers, Vanessa Redgrave declaimed from the pamphlet, and the activists were officially denounced as traitors.Mike, scientist and an...
