No cause for alarm now, says Kwasi Kwarteng as energy discussions are likened to early Covid crisis talks

The government was scrambling on Saturday night to reassure Britons that rising gas prices would not plunge the country into an energy crisis, as ministers held a series of emergency meetings with energy companies and regulators to establish whether the nation could keep the lights and central heating on this winter.

A senior industry insider likened the meetings held between the business secretary, Kwasi Kwarteng, and energy industry leaders to the early crisis talks held following the outbreak of Covid-19.

Why Greeceas expensive new migrant camps are outraging NGOs

The a!38m asylum seeker centre on Samos a the first of five a has restaurants and air-conditioning but itas like a prison, say critics

It has eight restaurants, seven basketball courts, three playgrounds, a football pitch, special rooms for vulnerable people, and is purportedly eco-friendly.

But Greeceas new acloseda migrant camp for 3,000 asylum seekers on Samos is also surrounded by military-grade fencing, watched over by police and located in a remote valley, and has been likened by critics to a jail or a dystopian nightmare. Its message is clear: if Europe-bound asylum seekers reach the country, they are going to be strictly controlled.

Nike and Amazon among brands advertising on Covid conspiracy sites

Household names may have unwittingly helped spread fake news, investigation reveals

Dozens of the worldas biggest brands, including Nike, Amazon, Ted Baker and Asos, have been advertising on websites that spread Covid-19 misinformation and conspiracy theories, it has emerged. The companies, as well as an NHS service, are among a string of household names whose ads appear to have helped fund websites that host false and outlandish claims, for example that powerful people secretly engineered the pandemic, or that vaccines have caused thousands of deaths.

Analysis of nearly 60 sites, performed by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and shared with the Observer, found that ads were placed through the aopaquea digital advertising market, which is forecast to be worth more than $455bn (APS387bn) this year.

Covid and Afghanistan areveal weakness of UKas security policya

Cross-party MPs and peers say the response to the two crises has exposed system as inadequate

The rapid fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban and the response to the Covid-19 pandemic have revealed aserious weaknessesa in the governmentas approach to dealing with national security, according to a highly critical cross-party report.

MPs and peers found that the two critical events had highlighted the shortcomings of the national security council a a cabinet committee of senior ministers and officials designed to handle major security challenges. The Lordsa and Commonsa joint committee on the national security strategy (JCNSS) said the system had been exposed as inadequate. It warned that national risk management across government is aloose, unstructured, and lacking in central oversight and accountabilitya.

In July, off the Turkish port city of Bodrum, Kerim SabuncuoAlu stepped from the edge of a boat into the azure Aegean Sea and began to descend. A scuba diver with more than 30 yearsa experience, he took up underwater photography in 2002 and has since devoted considerable amounts of time and money to his aout-of-control hobbya a capturing the wonders of the ocean on camera so that athe less fortunate people abovea can also marvel at them.

Paul Merson: aGambling is a horrible addiction. Your career passes you bya

A few minutes before Paul Merson tells the surreal story which makes him cry, in a beautiful but broken memory, he looks at me intently. aItas been 36 years of pure madness,a Merson says as he reflects on the gambling disorder which, coupled with alcoholism and a brief but ruinous addiction to cocaine, has scarred his life.

Merson won two league titles and three cups with Arsenal, while playing some visionary football which he produced again for Aston Villa. He won 21 caps for England, played in the 1998 World Cup and, now, at the age of 53, he is a much-loved, or often cruelly mocked, member of Sky Sportsa Saturday Soccer panel alongside his close friend Jeff Stelling.

Legends of the fall: is autumn all itas cracked up to be?

With its cosy socks, simmering hotpots and scary festivals, autumn is rich in tradition. But should we insist on fetishising a season of rain, fading light and tedious poetry?

Depending on your view, autumn has a bad rap, or an easy time of it. Overdue a renaissance or passA(c) to even admit liking at all. As a child, I considered autumn the red-headed stepchild of the calendar. It was the end of summer. It was back to school. It was a period in which blue skies turned white and the sun started showing up less and less, like texts from a friend youad made on holiday. Then, in a strange move, the government would surgically remove an entire hour of sunlight, presumably at the behest of whatever grisly nest of vampires came up with daylight savings time.

So far, so bad. But autumn was also a twilight time of change and spookiness, of crisp air, Halloween and substantially better television programmes. Sure, itas the time of school uniforms, but itas also the time of soup and candles and, again, much better television programmes.

Seven simple steps to sounder sleep

How I overcome my chronic insomnia with science

Everything about our day impacts our sleep. How many minutes we spend outside, what and when we eat, whatas happening with our hormones, our habits, emotions, stress and thoughts a all this feeds into the sleep we end up with at night. All of which I was completely oblivious to when battling chronic insomnia for years on end.

Sleep anxiety can create a very real and vicious circle. I would spend hours lying in bed, increasingly wired, anxious and exhausted as time ticked by, with prescription sleeping pills within reach for those 3am nights when I had to be up first thing. The problem is that the more we worry about sleep, the higher our stress hormones go a and too much of the stress hormone cortisol, whatever the trigger, disturbs our sleep. Weare left in a state of fight or flight, when we need to be in the opposite state of rest and digest. When my insomnia was at its worst, Iad start my day exhausted, running on empty, and have recurring burn-out days, where an overwhelming fatigue would stop me in my tracks, forcing me to lie down and recharge.

French recall of ambassadors shows extent of anger over Aukus rift

Analysis: ties between Paris and Washington in worse state than at time of Iraq war after Australiaas cancellation of submarine deal

The recall of the French ambassadors to Australia and the US a without precedent in two centuries of diplomacy between Paris and Washington a has plunged relations to depths unknown for decades.

Rifts over the Iraq war or Nato pale into insignificance. True, the French recalled their ambassador to Rome a couple of years ago, irked by the insults sent their way by the upstart Five Star leader Luigi di Maio, but that was a little warning to populists to stop encouraging the disruption of the yellow vest protests.

Forgotten how to have a dinner party? Here are three rules to ease you back in

Step one: donat try out a new recipea|

I havenat yet caught any of Jamie Oliveras new Channel 4 series Together, in which he cooks the kind of stuff you can rustle up for groups of family and friends without experiencing a total nervous collapse. But I love its title, and not only because it makes me think of Lukas Moodyssonas 2000 film of the same name (the best movie about a Stockholm commune ever made). Few words are to me more lovely than together, and all the more so following months of painful, enforced separations. In the ear, its syllables seem to ring like an old-fashioned doorbell.

In the grind of lockdown, there were moments when the sight of my kitchen made me feel physically ill. My relationship with my fridge, in particular, began to be vaguely abusive: I was always slamming its door in a huff. No wonder, then, that the great opening up induced in me a state of ecstasy that could only end in near bankruptcy.

Art of neon: light flickers on old British craft, but new show aims to keep it alive

Major exhibition will reveal how neon went from the staple of brash advertising to an art form

Across two galleries in Wakefield sit more than half a dozen tubes of light at least two metres tall, revolving on the spot and creating ethereal shapes in the air. These sculptures, created by the pioneering American neon artist Fred Tschida, make up a dramatic new exhibition in the city called Circlesphere, which will open later this month.

The artwork is a rare example of what is now a dying craft, with only a handful of neon makers left in the UK. Along with trades like ladder making, slating and straw working, neon making is considered endangered and likely to die out altogether if urgent steps are not taken to preserve it, according to the Heritage Crafts Association (HCA). Daniel Carpenter, HCA operations director, said neon-making skills are a asmall but significant part of British culturea that, if lost, would be anearly impossiblea to bring back.

Freddie Steward shines as resurgent Leicester Tigers maul Exeter

There have been enough false dawns at Leicester in the last few years to urge a note of caution but the Welford Road faithful can be forgiven for getting carried away after a barnstorming victory over Exeter to begin the season. The Chiefs, last seasonas runners-up and one of the dominant forces in England and Europe over the last few years, were sent packing with their tails between their legs. The Tigers scored five tries, ran roughshod over a team who have given them a few thrashings of late and have a burgeoning young star in the excellent full-back Freddie Steward.

Brighton are making strides under Graham Potter but the hard yards lie ahead | Jonathan Wilson

The south coast club, who host Leicester on Sunday, have made a flying start but have had a favourable fixture list

xG is not a perfect tool. Models vary. They have flaws. But still, it is striking that most xG a expected goals a models for last season had Brighton finishing not 16th, as they actually did, but fifth or sixth. Imagine that had happened. Imagine Brighton, with the 15th-highest wage bill in the division, had qualified for the Europa League. It would have been an extraordinary achievement. Graham Potter might not have been named coach of the year ahead of Thomas Tuchel, but he would surely have nudged Marcelo Bielsa out of second.

More than that, Potter would have been a serious candidate to take the Tottenham job, rather than just somebody who was mentioned in passing. The (excessive) grumbling about Gareth Southgate would have a more sharply defined focus: here, the doubters would be able to say, is the ideal replacement. And yet the general tendency seems still to be to regard Potter as an oddity.

Sergio ReguilA3n: aWe have to build something a| something biga

Tottenham need to organise under Nuno EspArito Santo then aexplore all the talent we havea, the left-back says

It was August last year, he was at Sevilla and the match a the Europa League quarter-final against Wolves, then managed by Nuno EspArito Santo a would end in a last-gasp 1-0 victory. It was a staging post in Sevillaas run to the trophy.

But what has also stayed with ReguilA3n is how they had to suffer; what it was like to face a Nuno team. aThey were very strong defensively and it was so difficult because you havenat got space to play,a he says. aWhen you have the ball, they are too compact, too aggressive.

Lizzie Deignan still Britainas best hope at Road World Championships

The squads are full of talent but such is the strength in depth of the opposition that success in Flanders is difficult to predict

Great Britain will field some of their strongest teams ever for the Road World Championships this coming week in Flanders. The squads are bursting with youthful talents such as the Olympic gold medallist Tom Pidcock and Pfeiffer Georgi, but such is the strength and the depth of the opposition in the elite events at least that their chances are all but impossible to predict.

The best medal hope lies with the 2015 womenas elite champion, Lizzie Deignan, as it has done for a decade now, apart from her break to give birth to her daughter, Orla. Deignan has yet to hit the heights she achieved in 2020; her only win to date is the Tour of Switzerland, but she now faces a busy end of the season, with the first womenas Paris-Roubaix and the UK Womenas Tour following immediately after Flanders.
