    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).

    The Intelligence: The race to save Kharkiv

    The Intelligence: The race to save Kharkiv

    Since the invasion began, Ukraine's second city has suffered a third of all aerial attacks. The latest one has been especially gruelling. A census of Mexico’s missing people is likely underestimating the scale of the problem. Is the president deliberately trying to minimise its scale (11:08)? And, why those with the least to spend on lottery tickets are most likely to try their luck (19:20).

    The Intelligence: Can Japan and America Trump-proof their alliance?

    The Intelligence: Can Japan and America Trump-proof their alliance?

    The leaders of both countries will meet for dinner at the White House tonight. In light of Asia’s changing geopolitics, defence will certainly be high up on the agenda. Somali pirates are wreaking havoc in the Indian Ocean again. What explains their resurgence (8:34)? And, have a listen to what AI can do with music (13:29).

    The Intelligence: Bear up

    The Intelligence: Bear up

    In Russia inflation is under control, wages are on the up and supposedly tough sanctions have been successfully skirted. Why is the pariah economy proving so resilient? Despite the nasty rhetoric of many of its politicians, Britain has turned out to be quite good at assimilating immigrants (09:29). And how lorries can be electrified faster (19:11).

    The Intelligence: Rwanda’s genocide 30 years on

    The Intelligence: Rwanda’s genocide 30 years on

    The 1994 slaughter of hundreds of thousands of minority Tutsis completely reshaped the country. It also produced Africa’s most polarising leader, whose outsized power and regional influence is proving ever more divisive. How a shadow economy of gangs and clans is running Gaza (11:45). And a total solar eclipse is coming to America (20:01).
