David Runciman: The Last World Cup "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The evidence for the premise that international sport spreads peace and goodwill has always been fairly thin: every major tournament is dressed up that way but the legacy is more often mothballed stadiums and simmering resentment, as was the case after South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014. Rarely, though, has a regime so brazenly signalled its indifference to the niceties of international sport, which require at least the pretence that bad behaviour gets put on hold. As the saying goes, hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue, and this is the currency in which Fifa likes to trade. But Putin isnt having any of it. He seems to have treated the award of the tournament as a licence to try his luck.

Primate-rich countries are becoming less hospitable places for monkeys, apes and lemurs "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Our primate cousins have managed to colonize a broad swath of the planet, taking up residence in 90 countries. Still, the majority of monkey, ape, lemur, tarsier and lorisid species live in Brazil, Indonesia, Madagascar and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and a new study finds that 62 percent of those species face the specter of extinction due to hunting and the splintering and outright loss of their habitats. It came as little surprise to University of Illinois primatologist Paul Garber that these four countries, forested bulwarks of biodiversity that they are, have been fertile grounds for the rise of unique species. The sheer proportion of the worlds primates they contain, however, was telling, Garber said. The realization that these four countries harbor 65 percent of the worlds primate species made writing our current paper a priority, he said in an email to Mongabay. He and his colleagues report their findings today in the journal PeerJ. The four countries in the study are home to 65 percent of the worlds primate species, including this red leaf monkey (Presbytis rubicunda), found in Indonesian and Malaysian Borneo. Image by Rhett A. Butler/Mongabay. In 2017, Garber and 30 other primate researchers from around the world concluded that 60 percent of all primate species could be wiped out soon by human activity. It was during the research and writing of that manuscript that I first realized how critically important Brazil, Indonesia, Madagascar and DRC were to avoiding a mass primate extinction crisis, he
