An Anglo-Spanish team of fossil hunters has found several perfectly preserved ticks amongst the remains of a feathered dinosaur nest

As if the dinosaurs didn’t have enough to look out for with volcanic eruptions, fearsome predators stalking the land and a huge, unstoppable asteroid hurtling across space to ruin their day.

Now scientists have found that the prehistoric beasts also had blood-sucking ticks to contend with, having spotted carcasses of the parasites lodged in 99million-year-old lumps of Burmese amber along with material left over from dinosaurs and their nests.

TVN SA judged to have ‘propagated illegal behaviour’ with report on demonstrations last year, raising fears for press freedom

Poland’s media regulator has fined a private broadcaster almost 1.5m złoty (£310,000) for news coverage of anti-government protests outside parliament, on the basis that it “propagated illegal activities and encouraged behaviour threatening security”.

US-owned TVN SA said it would appeal against the decision and defended the way in which TVN24, its news channel, covered demonstrations last December over government proposals to restrict media access to parliament.

Company says it will book advertising revenue in countries where it is earned instead of through Dublin headquarters

Facebook has said it will start booking advertising revenue in countries where it is earned instead of re-routing it via Ireland, although the move is unlikely to result in it paying much more tax.

Corporate taxation has become a controversial topic in the wake of revelations of tax avoidance schemes by multinationals which have led to calls for companies to pay more tax, while the European Union has begun exploring options for taxing digital giants.

One dead and 18 injured after blaze tears through Baumgarten gas hub, plunging Europe into energy crisis

Snow-hit southern Europe could face energy shortages after authorities warned that Austrian pipelines were likely to be out of action for days following an explosion and fire that ripped through a main gas hub near Vienna.

Baumgarten, where the explosion occurred, is a key distribution and reception hub for gas exports and imports, including from Russia, Europe’s biggest gas supplier. In Italy, where rain, snow and extreme cold weather have disrupted traffic in the north-east over the last few days, the country’s industry minister declared a state of emergency due to a lack of gas supplies.

Its foundation was laid by former slaves who began new lives in Canada. Now the community is rallying to keep it from being forgotten

The stucco-clad gabled church soon became a focal point for the community; hosting not only worshippers but gatherings of civil rights activists and abolitionists – including the church’s most famous attendee, American Harriet Tubman.

Swelled by creative émigrés in the 20th century, the city known for its good life now has an ageing population – and a lack of homes for the young

Dutch explorer Abel Tasman didn’t get a warm welcome in Golden Bay in December 1642 when, 375 years ago this week, he became the first European to make landfall in New Zealand. The craft he sent to shore to collect water was rammed by Maori waka, and four Dutchmen were killed. The islands remained unvisited by Europeans until Captain Cook’s expedition 130 years later; a half-century further on, the settlement of Nelson, 50km south of the bay, was up and running, becoming New Zealand’s second city after Christchurch by royal charter in 1858. Now a compact city of approximately 50,000 known for the good life (it has three neighbouring national parks), it’s also – as marked up on Botanical Hill – the country’s geographical dead centre.

Earthquakes don’t kill people (generally), collapsing buildings do – meaning it is cities where the most lives can be saved. Here are their smartest ideas so far

Between 1994 and 2013, nearly half a million people around the world died due to earthquakes, with another 118.3 million affected. A further 250,000 deaths resulted from subsequent tsunamis – chiefly in 2004 in the Indian Ocean – and more than 700 from ash fall.

Earthquakes affect every continent, though certain areas – the Pacific border of South America, the western coast of North America and Mexico, Alaska, south-eastern Europe, New Zealand and much of Asia – are especially prone. Though rarer than floods, they can cause devastating damage and large numbers of casualties very quickly. The Haitian earthquake in January 2010 killed an estimated 230,000 people, injured 300,000 and displaced 1.5 million from their homes. It also caused around $8bn of destruction, and its impacts are still being felt today.

Forbidden from striking, officers in Montreal’s 4,600-strong police force wore non-regulation colourful cargo pants, checkered clown trousers and animal-print leggings in their three-year fight over pensions. They won a 20% pay rise

At the intersection of Saint Catherine Street and Bishop Street in downtown Montreal, it was hard to miss the group of police officers, standing outside the station, watching for jaywalkers. But the first thing you noticed was not the badges or the guns, but their fluorescent camouflage-print trousers.

This was not the official uniform of Montreal’s 4,600-person strong police force, the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal, or SPVM. Since July 2014 most officers have worn colourful trousers in protest against stagnant pay and proposed cuts to their pensions, over which they had been locked in a lengthy dispute with city hall. They said that since they had no right to strike, wearing camo-print trousers was the only way to express their unhappiness.

Sources of food are a lifeline in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, but are being targeted by the Saudi-led coalition

At 11.30pm, 10 nautical miles off Yemen’s western Red Sea coast, seven fishermen were near the end of the four hours it had taken to haul their nets bulging with the day’s catch into their fibreglass boat. Suddenly, away from the illumination of the vessel’s large spotlight, one of the men spotted a black silhouette coming towards them.

Moments later a helicopter began circling overhead. The fishermen were well within the 30 nautical mile boundary they had been warned not to cross by leaflets airdropped on land by the Saudi-led coalition. But, without warning, gunfire erupted from the helicopter.

The Russian president has been on a victory lap to Syria and the Middle East, intent on showing that he has outplayed the US in the region

Vladimir Putin went on a victory lap of Syria and the Middle East this week, intent on showcasing his ability to secure the upper hand against the US in the region. On a surprise visit to a Russian airbase on the Syrian coast, he demonstratively embraced the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, whose hold on power Russia’s military intervention has all but saved. “Friends, the motherland is waiting for you,” Mr Putin told a detachment of Russian soldiers. “You are coming back home with victory.”

Meanwhile, in eastern Ghouta, a rebel-held suburb of Damascus where Russia had announced earlier this year that a ceasefire would take hold, children living under siege are starving. Despite the “de-escalation” deal, Syrian government forces continue to pound the area, backed by Iranian and Russian allies in an attempt to score a decisive victory. These two scenes spoke volumes about Russia’s calculus, and about the realities it has helped create on the ground. That the Russian president has now announced a substantial troop withdrawal must be taken with a barrel of salt. Similar pledges have been made before and remain unfulfilled. On Tuesday a Kremlin spokesperson said Russia would retain a sizable force in Syria to fight “terrorists”. Russia’s definition of “terrorism” in Syria is like that of the Assad regime, which equates it to political opposition.

The Republican Senate contender rode to the polls on his horse Sassy on Tuesday – but many Twitter users were severely unimpressed with his form

It seemed like a one-horse race – and then Roy Moore turned up. The would-be Alabama senator went to the polls on a horse named Sassy on Tuesday morning, and while Moore, accused of multiple counts of sexual misconduct, might have felt he was looking all John Wayne, he ended up looking more like Mr Bean.

This is hilarious, his form sucks & that horse was thinking about bucking him pic.twitter.com/NLWfm8QtlY

After decades of corruption, the president’s threat to ban rivals from elections was met with apathy. But only an honest vote can restore Venezuela’s democracy

Venezuelans have all the reasons in the world to be furious and to lose faith in democracy. Those that voted for Hugo Chávez 19 years ago were betrayed by a president that promised to end poverty and corruption. His government proved to be authoritarian and, at best, inefficient, while his successor, Nicolás Maduro, turned out to be a dictator who might one day stand trial for human rights violations.

Those that quickly saw the “revolution” for the corrupt farce it was were oppressed and marginalised. After two decades of abuse it is understandable that they don’t believe in the government’s call to dialogue, don’t feel represented by the leaders of the opposition and don’t support elections.

Report says North Korean leader and other officials committed crimes with camps for political prisoners, citing evidence of systematic murder and torture

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and other officials should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity committed in the authoritarian nation’s camps for political prisoners, three renowned international jurists said Tuesday.

The jurists’ report is based on testimony from defectors and experts on the camps, believed to hold between 80,000 and 130,000 inmates. It cites evidence of systematic murder, including infanticide, and torture, persecution of Christians, rape, forced abortions, starvation and overwork leading to “countless deaths”.

Two Britons were arrested after the men, from Africa and Asia, were taken to safety after allegedly working unlimited hours at sea with little rest and low pay

Nine African and Asian crew members working on a pair of British scallop trawlers were taken to a place of safety by police last week as suspected victims of modern slavery.

The men, who were reported to be from Ghana, India and Sri Lanka, were identified when one of the trawlers came in to Portsmouth harbour last Thursday because a crew member had suffered a head injury, the Guardian has learned.

A law paving the way for GM crops is aimed at tackling the acute food shortages faced by almost 11 million Ugandans, despite experts’ fears over the technology

After an afternoon drizzle, Ephraim Muhereza carefully scouts his three-acre banana plantation in Gayaza, Wakiso district, plucking male buds from trees. This will stop his plants from catching the notorious banana bacterial wilt, which has destroyed many farms in Uganda.

“We have been told that to reduce the spread of the wilt. We have to cut them so that bees that visit them don’t spread the disease,” he says.

“We spent 17 days in August living here with our feet under water,” he says.

Patients too poor to settle medical debts are chained to drainpipes, starved and abused in health centres across parts of Africa and Asia, report reveals

Hospitals are detaining hundreds of thousands of people against their will every year – many of them mothers and their newborn babies – simply because they are too poor to pay their medical bills, a study has found.

The practice, which is widespread across parts of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, sees patients chained to drainpipes, starved and abused, and forced to perform sexual acts in exchange for cash to pay off their bills, according to the paper published by Chatham House this week.

Pushing the judicial system to the right has been the objective of every Republican president since Ronald Reagan. Now Trump is doing it

Donald Trump has nominated an unprecedented number of judges to federal courts since his appointment. These are making steady progress through the Senate confirmation process and yet they have escaped the sort of scrutiny that Trump normally attracts. This is unfortunate, because the impact of Trump’s court picks will be profound, and will help reshape American society for years to come.

Of the nearly 60 judges he has nominated, only one is black, one is Hispanic and three are women. The rest are white men. All of these people are conservatives who will be interpreting and helping (re)write the law for decades.

We immigrants are stereotyped as either overachievers or bad hombres. That has to change – and a clean Dream Act has to be passed

I arrived in the United States when I was seven. My mother worked in a garment factory and my father delivered restaurant supplies. Together, they pinched pennies to pay for daily expenses.

Towards the end of middle school I decided to cut school with some of my new friends. I left in the morning with my schoolbag filled to the top, and came home to find my mother furiously sobbing on her bed. The school had called her to signal my absence.

Any company serious about addressing sexual harassment in the workplace should care about the women’s leadership gap. And this is one way to fix it

While the gruesome details vary – massages in hotel rooms, the button under the desk, men literally just showing their penises in the office – every #MeToo story has something in common: powerful men working in industries with very few women in top leadership positions.

Experts say trains and commuter rail lines remain comparatively vulnerable to attack – but it’s unlikely that passengers would accept airport-style screenings

Every weekday, nearly 5.7 million people move through New York City’s subway system, commuting through 472 subway stations and across 662 miles of track.

Monday’s attempted bomb attack struck at the heart of the commuter network in the Monday morning rush hour. Officials said the bomb detonated in a subway passageway in midtown Manhattan, between Port Authority bus terminal, which itself serves 65 million passengers each year, and the Times Square subway station at 42nd Street.

This new Tongan island is the first of its type to be formed from the ash of a 2014 volcanic eruption in the south Pacific and could exist for decades, according to a study released by Nasa. The new land mass, unofficially named Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai, reaches a height of 120 metres and was originally only predicted to last months. Instead, Nasa now believes it will remain for between six and 30 years, making it the first island of this type to persist in the modern satellite era. The island has also given researchers insights into similar features in other parts of the solar system, including Mars
