Every voting Democrat and all but 11 Republicans a including many of the chamberas supporters of Donald Trumpas isolationist agenda a backed the measure.

Mavis Staples & Levon Helm: Carry Me Home review | Alexis Petridis's album of the week

On poignant yet defiant recordings made in 2011 shortly before Helmas death, Staplesa commanding vocals give enormous vibrancy to blues, folk and soul standards

In the early noughties, Levon Helm began hosting live shows he called Midnight Rambles in a studio at his home in Woodstock, NY. It was a rare bright moment in the story of what happened to the members of the Band who werenat Robbie Robertson in the years following the quintetas split, a grim saga involving bitter enmity, addiction, suicide, bankruptcy and jail. The Midnight Rambles shows reinvigorated the drummer and vocalistas career, led to two Grammy-winning solo albums and attracted a vast array of guests: Dr John, Drive-By Truckers, Elvis Costello, Donald Fagen, My Morning Jacket, Norah Jones, Kris Kristofferson.

But perhaps no performer was quite as appropriate to the event as Mavis Staples, who played a Midnight Ramble with Helm and his band in 2011. Helm had prosaic reasons for starting the shows a after suffering with throat cancer which left him unable to sing for five years, he had medical bills to pay a but his stated aim was to recreate the atmosphere of the travelling tent shows head seen as a child in Arkansas. The amidnight ramblea, he explained, was a second, adults-only performance, awhere the songs would get a little bit juicier, the jokes would get funnier and the prettiest dancer would really get down and shake ita.

Suicides indicate wave of adoomerisma over escalating climate crisis

While alarm over wildfires, droughts, flooding and societal unrest is on the rise, not many of us talk about climate angst

It was a stunning, grisly act. A man, a climate activist and Buddhist, had set himself on fire on the steps of the US supreme court. He sat upright and didnat immediately scream despite the agony. Police officers desperately plunged nearby orange traffic cones into the courtas marbled fountain and hurled water at him. It wasnat enough to save him.

The death of Wynn Bruce, a 50-year-old photographer who lived in Boulder, Colorado, was a shock to those who knew him. aIt was so upsetting,a said April Lyons, a psychotherapist who knew Bruce from a therapeutic dance class they both took. aHe was a solid person, a compassionate, kind person. We had no idea head do this.a

Everton safe after Calvert-Lewin completes epic revival against Palace

They would not go. Not the fans who invaded the Goodison Park pitch and sang with raw emotion for 30 minutes after the final whistle. Not the players who joined the choir from the other side of a police cordon. Not Frank Lampard, who disappeared in the throng and re-emerged on the roof of the executive boxes to soak up the acclaim.

And not Everton. Their Premier League life was ebbing away after 45 desperate minutes against Crystal Palace. They would not go.

aSome things canat be repaireda: how do you recover when a friend betrays you?

With the aWagatha Christiea trial poring over the destruction of a celebrity friendship, four people share their experiences of treachery and trauma

As the libel suit between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney rumbles on in the high court, the public has heard weeks of claims and counterclaims about Instagram stings, paparazzi ambushes and phones lost in the sea. But one thing has been clear from the outset: one of the two women has been betrayed. Either, as Rooney claims, Vardy sold stories about her fellow Wag to the Sun, or, as Vardy maintains, Rooneyas baseless accusation has dragged her good name through the mud.

It is a messy and sordid tale from which no one a except possibly the lawyers a emerges the better. Rooney has described Vardyas WhatsApp exchanges about her as aevila; Vardy has said that the threats and abuse she received after Rooneyas accusations made her feel suicidal. What is driving the former friends to spend millions airing their most intimate details?

aEach little thing in my life is preciousa: Ken Watanabe on cancer, childhood and Hollywood cliches

His role in The Last Samurai changed Hollywoodas attitude to Asian characters overnight a but illness very nearly ended his career. He discusses recovery, regret and yakuza drama Tokyo Vice

There is something incongruous about seeing Ken Watanabe in a light-brown hoodie. He is synonymous with crisp tailored suits. It is like catching James Bond in jogging bottoms. aHello!a he beams from a cosy corner of his living room, family photos lining a shelf, dark-mahogany cabinets behind him. aGood evening! Or good morning?a he asks from his home in Karuizawa, a resort town in Honshu, Japan, as we chat over video. He has just finished a photoshoot with his boisterous border collie, Dan, who is yelping nearby, desperate to be included.

Even dressed down, the Japanese actor radiates the same commanding presence that he exudes on screen. He is one of the few modern east Asian stars to cross over successfully to Hollywood, which he did with his role in 2003as historical epic The Last Samurai. At 62, sporting a smattering of stubble, he still looks remarkably youthful.

Trump claims immigrants are voting illegally. The real problem is foreign fatcats funding US campaigns | Robert Reich

Non-Americans a whose interests donat necessarily align with the interests of the US a assert growing influence over American politics

In 2017, Donald Trump repeatedly claimed without evidence that between 3 million and 5 million unauthorized immigrants had voted for Hillary Clinton. In the last few weeks, Trump has resurrected his lie during campaign rallies for Republican primary candidates he has endorsed a whipping up fears of aopen borders and horrible electionsa, and calling for stricter voter ID laws and proof of citizenship at the ballot box.

Trump endorsees and wannabes are amplifying this lie. JD Vance, the Trump-backed winner of last weekas Ohio Republican senate primary, claimed that President Bidenas immigration policy has resulted in amore Democrat voters pouring into this countrya.

Republicans just nominated one of the most radical governor candidates in history | Judd Legum

Doug Mastriano may be one of the most radical candidates ever to receive a Republican nod and he has been clear that he will use that power

Pennsylvania Republicans have nominated state senator Doug Mastriano to be the next governor. Mastriano is one of the most radical gubernatorial candidates ever to receive a major party nomination.

Many Republicans have indulged Trumpas claims that Democrats stole the 2020 presidential election. But few have gone as far as Mastriano has to try to justify Trumpas fever dream.

Iam Doug Mastriano, and I get to appoint the secretary of state whoas delegated from me the power to make the corrections to elections, the voting logs and everything. I could decertify every machine in the state with the stroke of a pen via the secretary of state. I already had the secretary of state picked out. Itas a world-class person that knows voting integrity better than anyone else in the nation, I think, and I already have a team thatas gonna be built around that individual.

The banks collapsed in 2008 a and our food system is about to do the same | George Monbiot

Massive food producers hold too much power a and the regulators scarcely understand what is happening. Sound familiar?

For the past few years, scientists have been frantically sounding an alarm that governments refuse to hear: the global food system is beginning to look like the global financial system in the run-up to 2008.

While financial collapse would have been devastating to human welfare, food system collapse doesnat bear thinking about. Yet the evidence that something is going badly wrong has been escalating rapidly. The current surge in food prices looks like the latest sign of systemic instability.

The US is running out of baby formula: yet more evidence that new mothers can never win | Emma Brockes

Women have breastfed for thousands of years and yet there are still those who think we can just aswitch ona our milk

I had an easy pregnancy, a textbook C-section and the gift of a two-week recovery period alone at home after my twins were sent to the newborn intensive care unit a or, having given birth in the US, athe worldas most expensive babysitting servicea, as a nurse described it at the time.

One consequence of this was that I was fully healed by the time they came home. Another was that in the first two weeks of my babiesa lives, breastfeeding had to be supplemented with formula. By the time they left hospital, my supply was getting sketchy, which as it turned out was the least of our problems. Trying to get two preemies, not much bigger than guinea pigs, to latch was like asking them to eat peas off a beachball.

Ending Roe v Wade is just the beginning | Thomas Zimmer

Conservatives are animated by a vision of 1950s-style white Christian patriarchal dominance a it is the only order they will accept for America

The supreme court is set to overturn Roe v Wade, this much has been clear since a draft opinion authored by Justice Samuel Alito was leaked earlier this month. An attempt to safeguard abortion rights via national legislation was blocked by a united front of Republicans plus Democrat Joe Manchin in the Senate last week. As a result, we must expect abortion to be banned in roughly half the country soon.

It is very hard to overstate how significant this moment is. The US is about to join the very short list of countries that have restricted existing abortion rights since the 1990s a the overall trend internationally certainly has been towards a liberalization of abortion laws. And itas also a basically unique development in US history: while the supreme court has often upheld and codified a discriminatory status quo, it has never actively and officially abolished what had previously been recognized as a constitutionally guaranteed right.

Thomas Zimmer is a visiting professor at Georgetown University, focused on the history of democracy and its discontents in the United States, and a Guardian US contributing opinion writer
