‘For our grandchildren’: the man recording the lives of Paraguay’s vanishing forest people | global development

Ia tattered cardboard box in Mateo Sobode Chiqueno's home, hundreds of plastic cassette cases contain four decades of memories. “Here in my house, I have more than 1,000 cassettes of Ayoreo histories and songs,” says Chiqueno, who keeps them alongside his tape recorder of him at his wooden shack in Campo Loro, Paraguay. Many of the voices belong to people who are dead.Chiqueno began compiling his interviews with the Ayoreo, hunter-gatherers of the Chaco Forest, in 1979, after seeing missionaries using tape recorders to document their experiences. His tapes from him partially preserve a fast-disappearing culture.The work I'm doing is for our grandchildren, our children, so they can find the cassettes and all the messages of the Ayoreo who died many years agoMateo Sobode ChiquenoThe Ay...

Ukrainian refugee crisis isn’t time to judge others for past mistakes

Ukrainian families now huddle in bomb shelters and dig trenches to fight off Vladimir Putin's murderous regime. Their battle is for life and death; there is no time for debates about political correctness.No, those are concerned for the outside world that sits, watches, judges and tweets about a war not outside its door. This is not to say there aren't problems with how Western societies, the news media and governments perceive (and refuse to receive) nonwhite refugees from countries and regions such as Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Kurdistan, Eritrea, Yemen, Honduras, Haiti , Congo, Guinea Bissau and Mexico. As a matter of international law, no one group has any more right than another in its struggle for self-determination.In their own words:Ukrainians talk about living through Russian...

The Wonders by Elena Medel review – a poetic portrait of Spanish womanhood | Fiction in translation

There are two stories in this novel, but each one has been cut up, and the two sets of fragments shuffled together. They form a composite picture as frustrating, and as full of brilliant moments of illumination, as those church windows where conservators have reassembled the shards left behind by iconoclasts' cudgels, making a collage of unrelated pieces. Here a saint's hands reaching out in blessing; there the reading grimace of a snouted devil; a scattering of pieces of drapery lovingly executed; everywhere glimpses of sky, of dirt, of bright colour.Spanish author Elena Medel is a poet, and she has a poet's preference for the significant moment over the sustained narrative. In her first novel de ella, she gives us vignettes of two women, each of whom moves to Madrid in search of...

Can a video game be as good for my marriage as family therapy? Not this one | Games

I don't like co-operative gaming. I am too much of a control freak to let another player screw up my good work. But I really wanted to try It Takes Two because, first, it was in every single top game of 2021 list and, second, the game is about a couple on the verge of divorce who must find a way to work together. And a little over a year ago, my wife and I were in the same situation.In It Takes Two, the spouses become tiny dolls who must work their way through their suddenly gigantic house, solving puzzles to reunite with their weeping daughter. In real life, we did family therapy.Family therapy is great. Everyone sits in a room and says how bad their life is because of Dad. In our case, they were right. I had switched roles with my wife to become the worst stay-at-home parent e...
