Cannes 2022 week two roundup: a bloated Elvis and a brush with greatness | Cannes 2022

ANDlvis arrives in Cannes late, ushered in by screaming hordes. He says: “My daddy is a good man” and “It's gonna be OK, mama”. He sings Hound Dog on stage and all the girls turn to puddles. The festival initially wanted Baz Luhrmann's biopic for the opening night, two Tuesdays ago, but the film is a diva and divas make us wait. Have we gobbled down enough movies and drunk too much rose? Have we achieved a state of perfect peak excess? Only then, finally, does the King design to show.Like Elvis, this year's festival set out full of vigour, with a spring in its step and a wiggle in its hips. Now it's bloated and sagging, just beginning to rot. All such events, I suppose, have a natural lifespan, an arc. This one's gone to Graceland, dateline 1977.Detractors say Cannes is escapis...

Who may like climate change? Rattlesnakes, study suggests

Animals around the world have been feeling the negative effects of climate change, but there's one slithering creature that may be benefitting from it: rattlesnakes.Rattlesnakes can be found in every state in the continental US, according to Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, but they are commonly found in the southwest. One of the most widely known snakes in the world, rattlesnakes are relatively reserved reptiles that avoid human confrontation, but when threatened, they often will curl into striking position and begin to rattle their signature tail before they give a venomous bite. A new study published in the journal Ecology and Evolution earlier this month suggests rattlesnakes could spend less time hibernating and more time being out in the wilderness as the planet warms.R...
