The high Alpine resort of Katschberg proves perfect for a family of mixed abilities, and December’s lantern-lit advent trail leaves everyone feeling festive

I’m zig-zagging slowly down a beginners’ slope trying to avoid the three-year-olds zipping across my path and under the outstretched arms of a giant Mr Man. My two daughters, age 12 and 10, glide along behind me. As we pull to a stop I breathe a sigh of relief. I didn’t fall over that time.

“High five,” says Nico, our instructor. My daughters slide into position beside me, nonchalantly touching gloves with him as they do so. I try to reach over to his hand without going bottoms up again. I miss.

Country diary: kingfisher inspires mythhttp://aktualne.prahanadlani.cz/world-media/917036-country-diary-kingfisher-inspires-myth.html

Holme, Norfolk Myths and misconceptions surround this diminutive bird, which can hide in plain sight despite its dazzling plumage

It’s funny how kingfishers, the boldest-coloured birds in Britain, have inspired so much confusion. The commonest example concerns their size. Many people seeing one for the first time are flabbergasted at its smallness.

A recent encounter reminded me just how sparrow-like they are. For 20 minutes, I’d sat before a pool scanning the middle distance for harriers and winter geese, before noticing a kingfisher had been perched there all the time. It was only when it made its silvery piping notes that I fixed its location on a reed mace head.

David Warner fires shots at Ben Stokes as Australian's fitness thrown into doubthttp://aktualne.prahanadlani.cz/world-media/917023-david-warner-fires-shots-at-ben-stokes-as-australians-fitness-thrown-into-doubt.html
  • Opening batsman says Stokes has let his team and country down
  • Australian suffers neck injury and appearance in first Ashes Test not assured

David Warner has accused Ben Stokes of letting England down through his Ashes absence. But the Australian opener has also seen his own participation in Thursday’s first Test thrown into doubt after suffering a neck injury during the host nation’s penultimate training session.

Warner, so important to Steve Smith’s team given his aggressive approach at the top of the order, suffered the knock when taking a high catch in practice at the Gabba and then aborted his subsequent net after just two balls when unable to get properly aligned at the crease.

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 05:04:21 GMT A beano for the dandy - fashion archive, 21 Nov 1988http://aktualne.prahanadlani.cz/world-media/917034-a-beano-for-the-dandy-fashion-archive-21-nov-1988.html

21 November 1988 1980s woman has taken over the style once enjoyed exclusively by men in the 19th century

Woman is the opposite of the dandy, said Baudelaire, ‘because she is natural and vulgar’. As the curtain rises on the sartorial pantomime season, however, the liveried style of the dandy is designed to clothe an exclusively all-woman cast. Since the New Romanticism of the early Eighties, when young male club-goers with teenage spots and pints of lager looked spectacularly ludicrous in frilly shirts and velvet breeches, to elaborate furnishing fabrics made popular by Scott Crolla and Georgina Godley, through to the influence of Prince, the modern embodiment of pimp-dandy style, the gratuitous opulence of the English dandy look is one of the most irresistible, relentlessly re-worked themes in contemporary fashion history.

UN urges Saudi Arabia to allow urgent aid supplies into Yemenhttp://aktualne.prahanadlani.cz/world-media/917016-un-urges-saudi-arabia-to-allow-urgent-aid-supplies-into-yemen.html

Humanitarian coordinator says many more people will die if blockade is not lifted for shipments of medicine and food

UN humanitarian agencies in Yemen have pleaded with Saudi Arabia to permit the delivery of two urgently needed shipments of medicine and food aid blocked outside the port of Hodeidah, warning that the 15-day Saudi-imposed blockade was endangering tens of thousands of lives.

Jamie McGoldrick, the UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen, said: “The position is very precarious. One of the aid shipments contains medicine to combat the cholera outbreak, and the other urgently needed food aid including grains and rice.”

Zimbabwe's strange crisis is a very modern kind of couphttp://aktualne.prahanadlani.cz/world-media/917015-zimbabwes-strange-crisis-is-a-very-modern-kind-of-coup.html

Historically, African takeovers have been seismic and violent, but now participants are more wary of international opinion

It looked like a coup from a movie: a convoy of armoured vehicles, the president under house arrest, and the general on the nation’s screens talking of “restoring stability” in the small hours of the morning.

But since the military takeover in Zimbabwe a week ago events have departed from the script. President Robert Mugabe has not been harmed and remains in power, at least theoretically. When he refused to resign on live television on Sunday night, there were no repercussions. To oust him, parliament are using a cumbersome process of impeachment.

Illegal building 'played central role' in floods that killed 20 in Athenshttp://aktualne.prahanadlani.cz/world-media/917000-illegal-building-played-central-role-in-floods-that-killed-20-in-athens.html

Uncontrolled construction in Greek capital has led to many streams being concreted over, leaving rivers no outlet to the sea

Chaotic urban planning and illegal construction in Athens played a central role in the deadly flash floods that killed 20 people last week, experts in Greece have claimed as authorities pledged emergency funding for victimsmade homeless by the disaster.

About 1,000 owners of homes and businesses are eligible for the assistance, according to government engineers dispatched to inspect the buildings.
