NBC pulls Bill Cosby sitcom amid renewed sexual assault allegations — A new sitcom billed as a multi-generational "family comedy" has become the highest-profile casualty of the renewed swirl of rape allegations against the comedy star Bill Cosby after NBC confirmed that it has decided to scrap the project. NBC's decision not to move forward with the pilot takes the storm that has been gathering around Cosby to a new force factor.

Pussy Riot members join whistleblower foundation backed by Julian Assange — Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, two members of the Pussy Riot collective, have agreed to sit on the advisory board of an international whistleblower organisation of which Julian Assange is a trustee, after meeting the WikiLeaks founder at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Bird decline poses loss not just for environment, but human soul — 'That's a buzzard!" says Richard Gregory, gesturing at a tall birch tree stump 50 metres or so away, from which a flapping streak of brown and white has just disappeared. "That was a buzzard. That's one of the ones I was telling you about. It's back."

What kind of Nigeria will the Chibok girls come back to? — The news that the Nigerian government and Boko Haram had reached a deal that would secure the release of the Chibok girls was received with excitement all over the world. I landed in Nigeria the day the news broke, and my phone was flooded with texts and messages to the effect of "Have you heard?".

Lauren Laverne: ‘More charisma than any woman presenter of her generation’ — Lauren Laverne's big break came when Bob Stanley stumbled across her band Kenickie's single in a record shop, loved what he heard, and called the number on the sleeve. Laverne was the band's lead singer and, this being the mid-1990s, it was her home phone number.

Ched Evans refers to rape conviction as ‘act of infidelity’ — Footballer and convicted rapist Ched Evans released a video statement days after walking free from prison, expressing regret for what he described as an "act of infidelity" against his girlfriend. In a short clip posted on a website established to campaign for his innocence, Evans, 25, continued to insist that the woman he was convicted of attacking had consented to sex.

Ched Evans faces uncertain future after serving rape sentence — Ched Evans had scored 35 goals in 42 games for Sheffield United before a jury at Carnaerfon crown court brought his 2011-12 season abruptly to a halt. The 23-year-old Welsh international wept as he was convicted of raping a 19-year-old woman he had met in a pizza queue during a night out in Rhyl.

Protest kiss-in to be held in aisles of Brighton Sainsbury’s — A group of students are to stage a mass kiss-in on Wednesday in the aisles of a Sainsbury's store in Brighton, in protest at the treatment of two gay women who were told a customer found them " disgusting " and threatened with ejection when they shared a brief kiss.

Carswell hails Ukip’s 14th-century election guru, John Wycliffe — Though his personal website modestly reminds readers that the Daily Telegraph named him "Briton of the year" in 2009, Douglas Carswell did not bestow upon himself - or even upon Nigel Farage - the title of "the greatest of Englishmen" during his brief speech after becoming Ukip's first MP on Thursday night.
