 Did you know the fortunes of the richest 20 billionaires are greater than the entire GDP of sub-Saharan Africa?

And that a total of 573 new billionaires have emerged during the pandemic?

Oxfam has said that the coronavirus crisis has been “the best time in recorded history for the billionaire class”.

As the world’s business and political elite meet for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the development charity has published a new report revealing that the fortunes of food and energy billionaires have grown by $453bn over the past two years owing to soaring energy and commodity prices during the pandemic and Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.

Oxfam has found that spiralling global food prices had helped create “62 new food billionaires” in just 24 months.

Cargill, which is one of the world’s largest food traders, now counts 12 family members as billionaires, up from eight before the pandemic. The Cargill family, along with three other companies, controls 70% of the global agricultural market.

Meanwhile, Nellie Kumambala, a primary schoolteacher who lives in Lumbadzi, Malawi, with her husband, two children and her mother, says: “Prices have risen so much, even since last month. Two litres of cooking oil, last month was 2,600 kwacha, now it is 7,500. Imagine. Yesterday I went to the shop to buy cooking oil, but I failed, I did not have the money.

“Every day I worry about how I will feed the household, thinking to myself, ‘What should I do today so we can eat?’” she added.

For the key numbers from the report - swipe across.

 This koala, named Flash by his rescuers, was found suffering from severe burns and trauma after a bushfire in New South Wales, Australia.

More extreme weather patterns and higher temperatures caused by climate change are increasing the risk of bushfires in the country.

The picture is just one of the many featured in The Evidence Project - a campaign by some of the world’s leading photographers containing their firsthand proof of the impact of global heating and biodiversity loss.

They hope these images will provoke governments, businesses, opinion leaders and consumers to initiate the changes required for a safe and sustainable future for all life on Earth.

 Been tempted to buy clothes from a sponsored ad while scrolling? Gone on a fashion retail website to buy something then ended up buying 10 because of a flash sale? You’re not alone.

"Fashion, especially the cheap kind, is addictive," says journalist and ethical fashion advocate @zainab.slow.fashion.

Now brands like Shein – which recently overtook Amazon as the most downloaded shopping app in the US last year – are speeding up the pace of fast fashion with lower-quality, cheaper clothing, this new type of "ultra-fast" fashion is making the cycle of buy, wear, throw away and repeat all the more difficult to escape.

"Ultra-fast fashion is fast fashion, but with faster production, faster trend cycles and faster disposal," says Mahmood.

And these shopping habits aren’t without consequences.

“This dominant model of fashion is untenable”, says Dilys Williams, director of @sustfash. While acknowledging that the biggest customer base for this industry are people with substantial disposable income rather than those on low income, she calls these clothes “environmentally and socially destructive”.

In response to claims last year that its fashion business is unethical and unsustainable, a spokesperson for Shein said the company "is one of the only large retailers that orders 100 pieces or less for new products to help eliminate dead stock - which makes up 10% of the carbon emissions across the entire supply chain for the apparel industry. Shein is fully committed to upholding high labor standards across the entire supply chain and to improving the lives of workers in the global supply chain by supporting national and international efforts to end forced labor.”

Mahmood argues that while Gen Z consumers are not to blame for ultra-fast fashion, where possible, they should hold brands accountable for their harmful practices.

So how exactly are these companies getting us hooked? And what can we do about it?

 What do you think of when you see these images?

These breathtaking photographs all depict our galaxy, The Milky Way.

They are some of the winners of the Milky Way photographer of the year awards selected by travel blog @capturetheatlas.

The stunning images were taken by astrophotographers around the world during what they call 'Milky Way Season'. It runs from February to October in the northern hemisphere, and from January to November in the southern hemisphere, when we look towards the centre of our galaxy.

 Since 2011, white replacement theory has been the explicit motivation for over 160 murders around the world.

Last week, a white man armed with a rifle entered a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, and killed 10 people, almost all of whom were Black.

He is suspected of having posted a 180-page racist diatribe online. He repeatedly referenced the racist, false, and extremist conspiracy theory known as the 'great replacement' or 'white replacement'. The first listed goal in his document was: "kill as many blacks as possible".

So what exactly is this theory – and how has it spread?

 Tymofiy Seidov has not seen another child since 30 April, when most of this basement – in a building near the city of Kharkiv in north-east Ukraine – was evacuated.

The eight-year-old spends much of his time drawing at a little table, dimly illuminated from above by a tiny LED light, in the corner of the otherwise almost completely dark 40-by-five-metre basement that he shares with 23 adults including his mum, aunt and grandmother.

Tanks feature a lot in his pictures. But today, in the gloom, he is working on some Dalek-like monsters that he says he remembers from a cartoon he watched on YouTube before the war. He also draws happier scenes, sometimes, of houses under the sun and rainbows in the sky.

“I just think about surviving,” says Tymofiy’s mum, Rita pictured on slide six.

The family have been living here below the ruins of a two-storey kindergarten and medical centre in Kutuzivk since the war in Ukraine began on 24 February.

Before the war, the village had a population of 1,500. After Russian troops invaded the village, the population dropped to 50. Even when Ukrainian soldiers took Kutuzivk back, some in the village had nowhere to go but underground – including Tymofiy and his family.

On the first slide of this gallery, Tymofiy and his aunt Yana Sotnikova mark off the days on a calendar to remember how long they have been down in the basement. The exhausted and tearful people living there know the Russians can just as quickly return to Kutuzivka – or at least the artillery can.

Alla Lisnenko, pictured on slide seven, cooks for everyone. With a torch attached to her head with elastic, she is chopping aubergine for tonight’s dinner.

And the image on the fifth slide is of Natalya Leus, a nurse who used to live in the medical centre above the bunker, who has been looking after all the residents.
