    There is something miraculous about Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. On Tuesday, in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Roma at Anfield, they had all but booked their place in next month’s final in Kiev. Roma looked ragged and hapless, afraid to venture over the halfway line for fear of Liverpool’s attack.

    China's Lisu aim to save crossbow culture

    Deep inside mountains along the China-Myanmar border, a 26-year-old ethnic Lisu villager, surnamed Zhang, sharpens his crossbow arrows to prepare for a hunt. For Zhang and many other Lisu, a mostly Christian minority who inhabit the border region, the crossbow is an indispensable part of their culture dating back to 200 BC. In a country that often bans the sale of kitchen knives during political summits, it's still normal to see ethnic Lisu openly carrying the weapon in public.

    Daughter of Windrush immigrant facing imminent deportation despite dying mother and young grandchildren in UK

    The daughter of a woman who arrived in the UK with the Windrush generation is facing imminent removal despite all of her family, including her dying mother, being based in Britain. Jamaican national Yvonne Williams, 59, was detained in Yarl’s Wood last August and has been served notice that she could be deported at any point in the next 72 hours, after a number of submissions for right to remain and asylum claims were rejected by the Home Office. Speaking to The Independent from the detention centre, Ms Williams said she feared being alone and “living on the streets” if she was sent back to Jamaica, where she has no family ties since the death of her grandmother in 2000.

    Shire bid marks Takeda's latest - and biggest - push for global status

    Takeda Pharmaceutical Co Ltd's $64 billion bid for London-listed rare disease specialist Shire Plc bolsters its credentials as Japan's most outward facing drugs firm, a mould-breaking image that has been more than a decade in the making. Under chief executive Christophe Weber and his predecessor, Yasuchika Hasegawa, Takeda has cut its exposure to Japan, brought in expertise through overseas acquisitions and thrown open its leadership ranks to foreign talent. Some investors worry that Takeda, with only $4.3 billion in cash on hand for the Shire deal, may be overreaching.

    Human Bones Make For Terrific Daggers: Research

    Human bones make the best bone daggers, researchers studying weapons prized by the people of New Guinea have discovered. Using imaging, computer simulations and good-old-fashioned stabbing tests on daggers made from bird and human bones, researchers found that human thigh bones produced the very best blades. Nathaniel J Dominy, an anthropologist at Dartmouth College and first author of the study, described New Guinea bone daggers to the Washington Post as, “formidable, fierce-looking and beautiful.” Engineered for both function and beauty, the fearsome weapons are adorned with intricate carvings.
