Charlie Hebdo Shooting Is a Ferociously Shocking Moment — Posted: Even for a hardened news man in a hardened newsroom the mass shooting at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is a ferociously shocking moment. We know at least 12 are dead, five are critically wounded and others beside. And those numbers will doubtless change during the day.

If I were queen for the day I would send children into the wilderness — If I were queen, I would send schoolchildren off into the wilds. They need to break out of our cosy world of convenience and instant access to digital everything, and get active. I imagine that it would be tough to fit in more time in the national curriculum for sport, activity and expeditions.

If I were queen for a day I would enforce old-age selfies for children — With all this power, it's a challenge to know where to start. We are constantly reminded, for example, of society's preoccupation with being considered glamorous, accompanied by a belief that age brings us crashing down. Under my rule, everyone under 30 would be required by law to have one of their best selfies turned into an age-enhanced photo, wrinkles and all.

If I were queen for a day, cuddles would be mandatory — This week someone tweeted me about a woman who has started a cuddling business. Coincidentally, I was touring in Portland, Oregon, so we visited Samantha's cuddle shop, where you can book a 60-minute appointment to spoon, have your head patted and engage in prolonged eye-gazing.

Angelina Jolie: mansion tax could 'put me off' moving to UK — Actress and director Angelina Jolie tells Channel 4 News she would like to buy a property in Britain, but could be "put off' by Labour's proposed mansion tax on properties worth more than £2m.

Angelina on Brad: 'We pushed each other, but it was good' — Please wait while this video loads. If it doesn't load after a few seconds you may need to have Adobe Flash installed. "We are dear friends who love each other and support each other." Angelina Jolie tells Jon Snow what it was like to direct her husband, Brad Pitt, in the new film By the Sea.

Cracking the Code: how Sweden is closing prisons and reducing the prison population — The Longford Trust was established in 2002 by friends, family and admirers of Lord Longford (1905-2001) to celebrate his achievements and to further the goals he pursued in the fields of social and prison reform.

'I'm really not an opera fan', says top composer - video — Please wait while this video loads. If it doesn't load after a few seconds you may need to have Adobe Flash installed. John Adams, who has won a Pulitzer but some of whose work is shrouded in controversy over claims of anti-Semitism, makes a surprising admission to Channel 4 News.

If I were king for a day I’d ask everyone to abandon their car — It is midnight, the chimes of Big Ben ring in the ears of the Westminster workers setting up the pedestrian-only zone that extends from Lambeth Bridge to Trafalgar Square and from the Houses of Parliament to Buckingham Palace. As king, I shall join my people on foot and bicycle for the duration of my 24-hour ban on private cars in central London.
