Motorcycling: Officials hope better body protection can prevent repeat of recent tragedies

Motogp is looking to develop improved body protection for riders to help them survive the kind of accident that has killed two teenagers on successive race weekends. Nineteen-year-old Japanese rider Shoya Tomizawa, a rising talent who won this year's first Moto2 race, died in Sunday's San Marino Grand Prix after he fell and was hit at around 150 miles per hour by other riders close behind. Only a week before, 13-year-old American Peter Lenz had died in similar circumstances in a support race at the Indianapolis Grand Prix.

Forgotten Authors No.46: Gary Indiana

Some authors are less forgotten than ignored. Gary Indiana is an author whom it is more convenient to overlook. He belongs to a special breed of American urban writers who take cool pleasure in dissecting the lives of the rich and ugly, and is possibly the most jaded chronicler of them all. On a good day, he makes Bret Easton Ellis look like Enid Blyton, yet many, myself included, think he might already have written the Great American Novel(s).

Barack Obama: A struggle that spoke to something universal about humanity

We live in a world of competing beliefs and claims about what is true. It's a world of varied religions and cultures and forms of government. In such a world, it's all too rare for a struggle to emerge that speaks to something universal about humanity.

<i>IoS</i> letters special: News photography (4 January 2009)

As the full extent of the casualties in Gaza emerged last week, we invited readers to comment on our picture coverage. Some photographs were, we believed, too graphic to publish. We asked you if we should never publish pictures of the dead, or make each judgement on its merits. The overwhelming majority of readers argued for pictures to be used, however horrific their content. Extracts from some of these letters and emails are published here.
