    The Intelligence: The most personal choice

    The Intelligence: The most personal choice

    The case for assisted dying is essentially one of individual freedom—and plenty of Britons support a change in the law to permit it. Japan’s Noto peninsula is still reeling from a New Year’s Day earthquake. It could well have been worse, but geography and demography may ultimately limit improvements to earthquake preparedness (10:46). And the pros and cons of corporate uniforms (18:49).

    Drum Tower: South China Seaside

    Drum Tower: South China Seaside

    For centuries, most Chinese turned their back on the sea. But a boom in domestic tourism and the pandemic changed that. Now, whether they want the perfect seaside-selfie or to commune with nature, millions are heading to the beach for the very first time.

    Rosie Blau, The Economist’s international China correspondent, spends a day at Dameisha beach, on China’s southern tip, where she explores what China’s new beach culture reveals about the country today.

    The Intelligence: A region holds its breath

    The Intelligence: A region holds its breath

    For the first time Iran launched a huge attack on Israel from its own territory, though the effort largely failed. Israel’s response could easily lead to regional war; what is it likely to be? The first of the four criminal trials that Donald Trump faces will get under way today. It is by some margin the tawdriest (11:46). And celebrating the 150th anniversary of Impressionism (20:02).

    The Weekend Intelligence: Everything my Mum left behind

    The Weekend Intelligence: Everything my Mum left behind

    In January, Economist correspondent Rosie Blau’s mum died. She left behind a houseful of possessions, accumulated over a lifetime. Items suffused with memories, items catalogued as useful - in a rainy day kind of way - and items, like toenail clippings and broken tennis rackets, that had no utility at all. In the months since her death, Rosie has been sorting through her mum’s house. The reality and enormity of the task has left her reflecting on her mum’s relationship with stuff and why she kept so much of it.

    The Intelligence: America’s deeply divided electorate

    The Intelligence: America’s deeply divided electorate

    We have combined polling data to make a detailed portrait of the American electorate. Have a tinker with our interactive model: plug in their age, sex, religion, and more, and let us estimate how your hypothetical voter will vote in the presidential election. Allegations of extortion at the Rafah crossing out of Gaza (09:57). And, a tribute to an heiress-turned-IRA bombmaker (20:17).

    Checks and Balance: Six months in

    Checks and Balance: Six months in

    Six months after the October 7th attacks, the once solid alliance between America and Israel is beginning to fray. Joe Biden has called Binyamin Netanyahu’s approach in Gaza “a mistake”. But what does the Biden administration want right now?

    John Prideaux hosts with Charlotte Howard and Idrees Kahloon. They’re joined by Aaron David Miller of The Carnegie Endowment and The Economist’s Anshel Pfeffer.
