Inside the giant panda research centre - in pictures

theguardian.com — Photographer Ami Vitale was allowed exclusive access into China's giant panda research centre as it trains pandas to be released into the wild. While only about 1,600 giant pandas exist in the wild, the centre has bred over 300 babies by mimicking conditions of their natural habitats and is teaching them to survive once out in the wild.

London Live TV suffers terrible ratings three weeks on from launch

theguardian.com — London Live, the news-based TV channel launched on 31 March, has failed to win many viewers. Indeed, according to one commentator, Neil Midgely, the first three weeks of ratings have been "a disaster." He argues that "almost nobody" is tuning in to the channel's flagship news and current affairs programmes that account for five-and-a-half hours every weekday.

Ladies' Home Journal ending regular publication after 130 years

theguardian.com — Ladies' Home Journal, the magazine that has been helping to shape the style and taste of American women since the 19th century, is ending its 130-year run of regular publication. In its heyday, LHJ, as it is known in short, reached almost 7 million readers, and together with rivals such as Better Homes and Gardens and Good Housekeeping it helped define suburban America to itself in the postwar years.

The Hamid Mir case: 'In Pakistan, they used to censor journalists - now they shoot us'

theguardian.com — More than a hundred bouquets line the lobby of the private ward of Karachi's posh, private Aga Khan Hospital. Outside, dozens of policemen with bulletproof vests and automatic weapons look at every visitor suspiciously, officers speaking urgently into their walkie-talkies. The Karachi police force is really good at strutting about after a high-profile crime has happened.

When you call a rape anything but rape, you are just making excuses for rapists

theguardian.com — If you kill a person, you're a murderer. If you steal, no one would hesitate to call you a thief. But in America, when you force yourself on someone sexually, some people will jump through flaming hoops not to call you a rapist.
