The life of Los Angeles’ most famous mountain lion followed a path known only to the biggest of Hollywood stars: Discovered on-camera in 2012, the cougar adopted a stage name and enjoyed a decade of celebrity status before his tragic death late last year. The popular puma gained fame as P-22 and cast a spotlight on the troubled population of California’s endangered mountain lions and their decreasing genetic diversity. Now, with his remains stored in a freezer at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, wildlife officials and representatives from the region’s tribal communities are debating his next act.

Despite the criticism, armed troops paraded along the main esplanade in Colombo, showcasing military equipment as navy ships sailed in the sea and helicopters and aircraft flew over the city.

A massive white orb sweeping across U.S. airspace has triggered a diplomatic maelstrom and is blowing up on social media. China insists it’s just an errant civilian airship used mainly for meteorological research that went off course due to winds. The Pentagon says the balloon, which is carrying sensors and surveillance equipment, is maneuverable and has shown it can change course.
Two Tennessee Democrats blasted the bill that could christen a stretch of the street named for the late civil rights icon "President Donald Trump Boulevard."
A year ago, President Joe Biden used his first State of the Union address to push top Democratic priorities that were sure to face a battle in the narrowly divided Congress but he also laid out a four-pronged “unity agenda” that would be an easier sell. Biden's unity goals would be hard for anyone to argue against: improving mental health, supporting veterans, beating the opioid epidemic and fighting cancer. Susan Rice, the president's domestic policy adviser, pointed to “very significant progress” on all four aspects even as she noted that issues like meeting the demand for mental health services or combating drug abuse won't be solved overnight.
Rishi Sunak marked his 100 days in office this week, an event beloved of political journalists. Strikes, ministerial resignations and sleaze are among the issues that have cropped up in his first hundred days that didn’t feature on Sunak’s list of tests that he’s setting himself.

“Songs outlive people,” Barrett Strong told The New York Times in 2013. The Motown songwriter, who has died aged 81, made the remark ruefully, convinced he had not been properly recompensed for the hits that he co-wrote. Posterity will pay tribute to him every time someone listens to “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” or “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone”.
Nine years ago, Catherine Cawood, the fictional policewoman from Hebden Bridge, introduced herself to a drug addict threatening to set himself alight — and to viewers of the BBC drama Happy Valley. This Sunday, fans now feverishly sharing theories on social media will tune into the finale of the third and last season, to discover if Cawood, played with exquisite range by Sarah Lancashire, will capture the vengeful, psychopathic Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton) and realise her dream of escaping to the Himalayas in a jeep. The blockbuster series has gilded the reputation of Sally Wainwright, its creator, writer and director, who is also known for Last Tango in Halifax (BBC), a story of late-in-life love, and Gentleman Jack (BBC and HBO), which dramatised the romances of 19th-century lesbian and landowner, Anne Lister.
