The same sense of mischief that compelled drummer Erik Woudwijk to save up from the age of 12 to buy the Unimog also fuels their scratchy, lo-fi anthems lampooning Christianity and exploring teenage boredom.

Russian trolls' tweets cited in more than 100 UK news articles

Should US mothers be paid to donate placentas?

Birth is messy. It’s often not until you’re pregnant that you learn about the third stage of labor – the bit after the baby appears, when the mother pushes out the placenta that has provided life support for the previous nine months. In developed nations, birth is assumed to be safe. Yet in the United States, the maternal mortality rate doubled between 1990 and 2013, and infant mortality rates are rising in England and Wales, due largely to social inequality and cuts to maternity services.

Seven ways to strengthen your core

A strong core isn’t about having photogenic abs, looking good in swimwear or grinding out another deadlift. It is a key element in dozens of everyday movements, including simple things such as carrying your shopping or getting out of bed in the morning. Many people know that a weak core can lead to a bad back, but the benefits of strengthening it are sometimes underappreciated. An analysis of studies published between 1970 and 2011, for instance, found that “core stability exercise was better th

When the US government snatches children, it's biblical to resist the law | Daniel José Camacho

While sitting in an Alabama jail, Martin Luther King Jr began writing a letter about the moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. He invoked the legal maxim originating with St Augustine that an unjust law is no law at all.
