A Startup’s Mission to Bring Back the Woolly Mammoth Is Being Made Into a Docuseries

A Startup’s Mission to Bring Back the Woolly Mammoth Is Being Made Into a Docuseries

Reed: It doesn’t feel like an odd choice for us. It’s a bit disruptive and, in trust, that’s the sort of thing we’re interested in, and I think that’s the sort of thing people need and the industry needs. People need something more from nature documentaries? Reed: I think so. We’re in a period where you could keep looking at the natural world in the same way, or we can look at something in a completely different way. And even if it’s not for everybody, it just makes us look at something in a different way, and that can only be good. I suppose any documentary on de-extinction is about the natural world, but it’s also one where human intervention is totally central. It’s a different way of relating to nature. Reed: Exactly. It’s intervention, isn’t it? It’s assuming a different role. It’s an active way of addressing arguably some of the same challenges. Whether it’s right or wrong, or whether people get behind it or they don’t is going to be really interesting, but …

The Guardian view on investing in youth: bring back Sure Start and make it for teens too | Editorial

The Guardian view on investing in youth: bring back Sure Start and make it for teens too | Editorial

Sir Keir Starmer’s recent suggestion that the last Labour government’s Sure Start programme will be the model for his Labour administration reveals that new ideas can be found in old ones. Sir Keir was responding to serious youth violence in a thoughtful way. A recent survey suggested that almost half of children and young people were victims of, or witness to, violence, with a similar number reporting that the fear of violence impacted on their daily lives. While the carrying and use of weapons by a small minority is frightening – above all for their families – Labour is right to say a ban on knives is needed, but would be insufficient to tackle the wider societal malaise afflicting teenagers. Neither are tougher sentences a solution, particularly given prisons’ poor record on training and rehabilitating offenders. The longer-term trend is concerning, particularly with regard to young people. While the number of knife offences committed by adults rose by 15% in the decade to 2023, the equivalent figure for the 10-17 age group was 21%. Underlying …

Lilium to bring eVTOL jets to Asia, beginning in the Philippines

Lilium to bring eVTOL jets to Asia, beginning in the Philippines

During this year’s Singapore Airshow, electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) jet developer Lilium has signed a memorandum of understanding with global aviation services provider PhilJets to bring on-demand travel services in Asia, beginning in the Philippines. Lilium ($LILM) is an advanced air mobility (AAM) startup founded in Munich, Germany, in 2015 that has since expanded its footprint of development teams across Europe and the United States. Its current staff is approaching 1,000 personnel, including 500 aerospace engineers, who continue to work toward bringing Lilium’s unique eVTOL Jet design to commercial operations. We’ve been following the progress of Lilium since 2016 and have reported on its progress and early failures leading up to today’s news. Most recently, Lilium achieved development certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), enabling the company to continue developing, testing, and preparing its eVTOL jets without less EASA oversight ­en route toward certification and production before commercial operations. While the German eVTOL specialist continues to make strides in Germany, we may see the first initial air-taxi rides in its jets on another continent …

This Mum Asked To Bring Her Baby To A Wedding And The Internet Is Divided By The Bride’s Response

This Mum Asked To Bring Her Baby To A Wedding And The Internet Is Divided By The Bride’s Response

Inviting kids to weddings is always a big debate, some people create a separate area for children to have fun and others say strictly no kids allowed. Not everyone wants children running around while saying their vows, and I get it, kids can be unpredictable. In my own circle of friends I’ve seen childfree weddings gaining more popularity, but for parents it can be difficult to organise childcare. One mum started a debate on Mumsnet with the question “am I being unreasonable to ask to bring my baby to a wedding?” The post got quite a few responses ranging from yes, you are, to no, you shouldn’t even need to ask to being your baby. In the post she wrote: “My oldest friend is getting married in December and I just got the invite. It has mine and darling husband’s name on it not our three kids. This is absolutely not a problem. Who wants to party when you have kids! “We are only invited to the night do (I think it’s a very small …

BAFTAs 2024: Watch David Tennant bring a dog in opening sketch

David Tennant made a dramatic entrance to the BAFTAs on Sunday night, and he came armed with Michael Sheen’s dog. In the amusing open sketch above, the Doctor Who star and host of the awards show takes a series of Zoom calls with different celebrities – including Tom Hiddleston and Dame Judy Dench – in an attempt to persuade them to look after Sheen’s dog, after his Good Omens co-star forced him to keep a previously arranged dog-sitting commitment. In the end, when nobody can help, there’s only one thing for it: Keep the hosting gig, and bring the dog. You can see the full list of BAFTAs 2024 winners here. Source link

How Ziggy Marley helped bring the authenticity to ‘Bob Marley: One Love’

How Ziggy Marley helped bring the authenticity to ‘Bob Marley: One Love’

People had been coming to Ziggy Marley and his family for years with ideas about how to turn reggae icon Bob Marley’s life into a movie. But it never felt quite right, until a few years ago when they decided to be the instigators. “It was just a feeling,” Ziggy Marley said of getting his father’s life on screen in a recent interview with The Associated Press. “We explored it without knowing that we definitely wanted to do it because we needed to make sure that the people we did it with was the right people. People who respected what we wanted to do, the culture, the authenticity that we wanted.” This time, he said, they found the right partners. But it was a gamble for everyone: For Paramount Pictures and the other producers, wanting to do right by Bob Marley’s story, his music and his message and worried what would happen if they didn’t; For Kingsley Ben-Adir stepping into the shoes of an icon; For the family and friends who mined their memories for …

Holy cow! Protesting Italian farmers bring bovine to mass with the pope | Italy

Holy cow! Protesting Italian farmers bring bovine to mass with the pope | Italy

Italian farmers who were invited, along with a cow called Ercolina II, to mass at the Vatican amid Europe-wide agricultural protests have said the blessing from Pope Francis would give them the strength “to win the game”. The farmers, their tractor and Ercolina II, who also made an appearance at the recent Sanremo music festival, were among the worshippers gathered in St Peter’s Square for the pontiff’s Sunday Angelus. “It was a great surprise to receive an email and call from the pope’s secretary,” said Roberto Rosati, a spokesperson for Agricultural Redemption, Italy’s tractor-protest movement. “Giving us the approval to enter and attend mass in St Peter’s Square – this is an invitation that happens once in a lifetime. With this blessing we can find the strength to win the game.” In return, the farmers said they would give the pope a tractor, “a symbol of our fight”. “Our voice will not stop, we will follow the paths of dialogue and perseverance, with dignity and conviction to reach concrete goals,” they wrote in a letter …
