African people don't want your T-shirts and other mythbusters - Eliza Anyangwe | Comment is Freehttp://bit.ly/elizaCIF

When you hear the word 'Africa', what comes to mind? It's likely you think of death, destruction, disease and maybe safari.
Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian
Western media has had a single story of the continent for centuries. But, argues Eliza Anyangwe, African people are slowly dispelling the myths by telling their own stories online.

When I hear the word "Africa", first I think "poverty", then "corruption" and then I think of thousands of people wanting to flee to Europe and actually doing this.

The Silk Road: who was the real Dread Pirate Roberts? | Guardian Docshttp://bit.ly/silkroadroberts

Ross Ulbricht, the mastermind behind The Silk Road drugs trading website, was convicted in February 2015.
Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian
In the lead up to his sentencing, Deep Web explores whether Ulbricht was the swashbuckling criminal kingpin he was made out to be in court, or simply a naive tech visionary. Narrated by Keanu Reeves, it questions the FBI's methods in seizing the Silk Road's servers and asks whether the investigation has chilling consequences for state surveillance.

He was taking their profits and clientele so it was inevitable they would illegally stop him if they couldn't do it legally... Our governments and their #Puppetmasters are the dirty filthy crooks who need to be behind bars...

Again WTF? Off topic, vague and  tangential as usual. Britain is corrupt to it's very core. YOUR rampant BRITISH NATIONALISM blinds you.
Scots don't get a penny from our oil revenue. it's STOLEN by the UK government. Where is Scotland's oil fund? According to the IFS it would be £200 BILLION+. 
Never mind, we Scots will pay at least £4.8 Billion towards HS2 but it WON'T benefit Scotland. Another benefit of this corrupt Union you love so much." Pooling and sharing" resources only ever seems to benefit England.
It's theft, and you support it.

Trailer park millionaires: how to get rich on housing for the poor
Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian
Some of the richest people in the US, including billionaires Warren Buffett and Sam Zell, have made millions from trailer parks at the expense of the country's poorest people. Seeing their success, ordinary people from across the country are now trying to follow in their footsteps and become trailer park millionaires. The Guardian went to Orlando to learn the tricks of the trade from Frank Rolfe, the self-appointed dean of Mobile Home University, as he led would-be investors around a trailer park for sex offenders.

Is it ok to pick on fat people? Deborah Coughlin | Comment is Freehttp://bit.ly/pickonfatpeople

Deborah Coughlin has been fat and thin loads of times, going from a size 18 to 14, then 22 to eight, and 14 back up to 22 again.
Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian
Many businesses and individuals alike seem to think it's acceptable to discriminate against big people because of their weight. But, she argues, it's about time attitudes towards fatties – and even perhaps the law – began to change.

Sometimes we prefer to bury our heads in the sand and hope problems will go away. Climate change and the real dangers to mankind are happening for us all to see. Making it a political issue is appalling. Big businesses will always deny responsibility and spend BILLIONS to support their vested interests.MOH Manchester UK

More than a dozen plain-clothed officers descended on the five-star Baur au Lac hotel this morning to make the arrests in the Swiss city, where this year’s annual FIFA meeting is being held. The charges include wire fraud, racketeering and money laundering, and officials said they targeted members of the executive committee, which wields enormous power and does its business largely in secret.
Latest updates as reports say senior Fifa officials could face extradition from Switzerland to the US on federal corruption charges

I remember when Alan Rushbridger became editor thinking that Peter Preston had left some extremely large shoes to fill. I shouldn't have worried, The Guardian has been outstanding under AR's tenure. Digital launched and reaching 120 million, a Pulitzer Prize, and still a thorn in the side of several governments at home and abroad, just to name but three. Many thanks from one very happy reader.
