Titanic : des photos montrent un paquebot de luxe avant et après le naufrage mortel

Published

on

De nouveaux scans numériques publiés aujourd’hui montrent le célèbre RMS Titanic plus en détail que jamais depuis qu’il a coulé il y a plus d’un siècle.

Les experts ont pris des milliers d’images numériques pour créer la superbe reconstruction 3D de l’épave, qui se trouve au fond de l’océan Atlantique, à environ 350 milles marins au large de Terre-Neuve, au Canada.

Ils présentent l’épave presque comme si elle avait été récupérée de l’eau, bien que cela n’arrivera probablement jamais car l’épave est si fragile qu’elle se désintégrerait au moindre contact.

Les restes délicats du Titanic – qui sont rongés par la vie microbienne et frappés par les courants océaniques profonds – se détériorent si rapidement sous l’eau que le navire pourrait complètement disparaître d’ici 40 ans.

Les 29 chaudières du Titanic contenaient un total de 159 fours pour chauffer l’eau et envoyer la vapeur aux moteurs alternatifs qui l’ont propulsée dans les eaux de l’Atlantique.

Les experts espèrent que les études des nouveaux scans pourraient en révéler plus sur les mystères entourant ce qui s’est passé la nuit fatidique d’avril 1912, comme la mécanique exacte de la façon dont il a heurté le fond marin.

“Il y a encore des questions, des questions fondamentales, auxquelles il faut répondre à propos du navire”, a déclaré Parks Stephenson, analyste du Titanic, à la BBC.

‘[The model is] l’une des premières étapes majeures pour conduire l’histoire du Titanic vers une recherche fondée sur des preuves – et non vers la spéculation.

M. Stephenson a déclaré qu’il avait été “époustouflé” lorsqu’il a vu pour la première fois les scans, qui ont été effectués par la société de cartographie en haute mer Magellan Ltd lors d’une expédition l’été dernier et qui feront l’objet d’un documentaire d’Atlantic Productions.

“Cela vous permet de voir l’épave comme vous ne pouvez jamais la voir depuis un submersible, et vous pouvez voir l’épave dans son intégralité, vous pouvez la voir dans son contexte et en perspective”, a déclaré M. Stephenson.

“Et ce qu’il vous montre maintenant, c’est le véritable état de l’épave.”

Le Titanic s’est brisé en deux juste avant de faire son dernier plongeon aux premières heures du 15 avril 1912, et maintenant deux parties du navire – la proue et la poupe – se trouvent à 2 600 pieds l’une de l’autre.

Les deux moitiés sont entourées d’un champ de débris composé de morceaux de métal, de meubles, de bouteilles de champagne non ouvertes et même de chaussures de passagers.

Magellan Ltd a envoyé des submersibles pour inspecter toutes les parties de l’épave, qui se trouve à environ 13 000 pieds sous la surface de l’eau.

Les submersibles ont passé plus de 200 heures à prendre 700 000 images de chaque angle du navire pour créer la reconstruction 3D.

Le paquebot de luxe – détenu et exploité par la société britannique White Star Line – a tragiquement coulé aux premières heures du 15 avril 1912 après une collision avec un iceberg, tuant environ 1 517 des 2 224 personnes à bord.

La cartographie en haute mer du navire donne l’impression qu’il s’est vidé de toute l’eau, ce qui permet de voir plus facilement ce qui reste avec des détails plus clairs par rapport aux caméras et aux lumières.

Les images montrent la poupe – l’arrière du navire – comme un gâchis de métal tordu après avoir touché le fond de l’océan tournant toujours dans le sens inverse des aiguilles d’une montre.

La proue en forme de V est plus reconnaissable, avec des balustrades, bien qu’une grande partie soit enfouie sous la boue en raison de la force de l’impact.

M. Stephenson a déclaré que nous “ne comprenons toujours pas” tout ce qui concerne la collision du Titanic avec l’iceberg, de sorte que les nouvelles images pourraient aider à en révéler davantage.

L’image révèle l’épave plus en détail que jamais auparavant, y compris des stalactites de rouille sur la proue du navire, le numéro de série sur une hélice et un trou au-dessus de l’endroit où se trouvait autrefois le grand escalier.

“Nous ne savons même pas si elle l’a heurté à tribord, comme le montrent tous les films – elle aurait pu s’échouer sur l’iceberg”, a-t-il déclaré.

Bien que certaines épaves aient été amenées à terre, il est probable que cela n’arrivera jamais avec le Titanic.

Les experts pensent qu’il est trop délicat pour être déplacé en raison de la détérioration due à la corrosion, à l’activité biologique et aux courants océaniques profonds. Il y aurait aussi des implications morales.

La survivante britannique du Titanic Eva Hart, qui a perdu son père dans la catastrophe, a déclaré peu de temps avant sa mort en 1996: «J’espère sincèrement qu’ils n’essaieront jamais d’en récupérer une partie.

“J’espère qu’ils se souviendront qu’il s’agit d’une tombe – une tombe de 1 500 personnes qui n’auraient jamais dû mourir, et je ne pense pas que vous devriez aller là-bas et voler des tombes et j’y suis très opposé.”

Le Titanic avait navigué sans heurts pendant la majorité de la catastrophe à distance prévue du voyage.  L'épave du Titanic se trouve maintenant à 350 milles marins au large de Terre-Neuve, Canada

Après des années de propositions de sauvetage et d’expéditions infructueuses, l’épave du Titanic a finalement été localisée le 1er septembre 1985, plus de 73 ans après le naufrage, par l’océanographe américain Robert Ballard.

La découverte, qui a fait la une des journaux à travers le monde, a apporté la preuve que le navire s’est divisé en deux avant de toucher le fond de l’océan.

Ballard est revenu dans le cadre d’un équipage de trois personnes l’année suivante, qui a renvoyé des images obsédantes et granuleuses prises par un véhicule d’exploration sous-marine télécommandé appelé Jason Junior.

En 2019, une expédition sur le Titanic a fourni les toutes premières images 4K de la ruine et a découvert l’étendue de la détérioration due à la corrosion saline et aux bactéries mangeuses de métaux.

Les scientifiques ont déclaré que la vie microbienne rongeait l’épave, y compris la baignoire du capitaine, qui avait complètement disparu, et la coque près des quartiers des officiers à tribord du navire, qui a commencé à s’effondrer.

Le mystère du Titanic est RÉSOLU : Un étrange « blip » détecté en 1996 près de l’épave a été causé par un « écosystème abyssal » grouillant d’éponges, de coraux et de poissons, révèle une étude

Lorsque les plongeurs ont reçu un mystérieux “blip sonar” lors d’une plongée dans les restes du Titanic en 1996, ils ont été perplexes.

À l’époque, ils pensaient que la transmission du sonar dans l’océan Atlantique Nord était causée par un deuxième naufrage, une caractéristique géologique ou autre chose.

Enfin, 24 ans plus tard, les chercheurs ont découvert que le blip était causé par un riche écosystème sous-marin regorgeant d’éponges, de coraux, de homards et de poissons.

OceanGate Expeditions a déclaré que la transmission du sonar en 1996 était “étrangement similaire” à celle du Titanic, mais au lieu d’un naufrage, elle provenait de l’écosystème d’une formation de basalte jusque-là inconnue.

Nikkei tops level last seen in 1989 as Japan shakes off 34 years of stagnation

Published

on

At the end of 1989, the Japanese Nikkei 225 index hit a record high of 38,915.87, amid huge euphoria.

However, there followed 34 years of crises, natural disasters, deflation – and a decline of close to 80 per cent in the index.

But last week, to the accompaniment of much rejoicing, the Nikkei finally regained its level of 1989, leaping to 39,239.

This recovery was driven by the global semiconductor stock boom, but also by a diverse range of other more fundamental factors.

These include the forecast from brokers Nomura that if America chooses Donald Trump as its president in November, there will be a further breakdown in US-Chinese relations. 

The beneficiaries would be companies that sell more to America than China, like the car manufacturer Subaru and noodle specialist Toyo Suisan. Its ramen noodles are a favourite among Americans on a budget seeking something delicious.

Does the Japanese market offer something similarly appealing to those looking for diversification? After all, according to one forecast, the Nikkei may be set to advance to 42,000. 

This prediction has raised eyebrows among those who have waited more than three decades for a bounceback in the index. 

But Joe Bauernfreund, manager of the AVI Japan Opportunity Trust, says there are reasons to believe ‘that this time, it’s different.’

Advertisement

He says: ‘The market isn’t being driven by unsustainably high valuations. It is earnings and corporate reform led. I think we are at the early stages of the revival – and that there is further upside. There is a huge opportunity in overlooked small cap stocks.’

These key reforms are the ‘Abenomics’ stimulus initiatives, introduced by the late prime minister Shinzo Abe, and the new Tokyo Stock Exchange regulations, designed to cure the sclerotic corporate culture.

Under the rules, which have been described as ‘a game changer’ by Goldman Sachs, companies must use spare cash for the benefit of shareholders. This should ensure that there are fewer companies whose stock market valuation is below the book value of their assets

These governance changes – which Goldman Sachs analysts argue could bring a ‘transformational’ year for the Japanese market – have been accompanied by shifts in attitudes.

Prime minister Fumio Kishida is promoting ‘a new capitalism’ as part of which there is less distaste for takeovers, and employees are seen as deserving of more regular pay rises. 

Advertisement

In June last year, as the Nikkei made its ascent, I overcame my reservations and invested in two Japanese funds: AVI Japan Opportunity and Vanguard Japan ETF (exchange traded fund).

Some of my inspiration for this came from Berkshire Hathaway boss Warren Buffett’s decision to put money into Itochu, Marubeni Mitsubishi, Mitsui and Sumitomo.

But even Buffett’s belief in Japan’s potential is almost muted compared with the optimism being expressed by such giants as BlackRock, the world’s biggest fund manager.

Such has been the upsurge in confidence that, in January, international investors splashed out £10.5bn on Japanese shares.

The nation’s famously thrifty citizens have also preferred cash to shares, despite negative interest rates.

This policy may finally end this month, as part of Japan’s process of normalisation. But Kishida will be hoping to entice these reluctant investors into the stock market with the new Nisa (Nippon Individual Savings Account), a scheme based on the UK’s Isa.

If you think Japan deserves a place in your Isa, it is worth doing some homework on the intricacies of its stock markets. For example, the Nikkei may be the most closely-followed index. But its make-up is based on the price of stocks, rather than company size.

As result of this bizarre arrangement, car giant Toyota, the country’s largest company, makes up 1.1 per cent of the index. The number one constituent is the far smaller Fast Retailing group, owner of the Uniqlo chain.

These and other complexities mean that I will be putting money not directly into shares, but into funds, particularly those that are focusing on digitisation, such as Japan Jupiter Income, one of Bestinvest’s top picks. 

Other best buy funds include Baillie Gifford Shin Nippon, which concentrates on smaller companies, and Man GLG Japan Core Alpha for the adventurous.

In 1989, Sony, founded in Tokyo in 1946, led the world in innovation.

In this century, it was supplanted by Apple, founded in 1976.

I am taking a bet on Japan making up for lost time.

Biden says ‘hoping’ for Gaza ceasefire deal by Ramadan

Published

on

Gaza’s health ministry collects data from the enclave’s hospitals and the Palestinian Red Crescent.

The health ministry does not report how Palestinians were killed, whether from Israeli airstrikes and artillery barrages or errant Palestinian rocket fire. It describes all casualties as victims of “Israeli aggression”.

The ministry also does not distinguish between civilians and combatants. 

Throughout four wars and numerous skirmishes between Israel and Hamas, UN agencies have cited the Hamas-run health ministry’s death tolls in regular reports. The International Committee of the Red Cross and Palestinian Red Crescent also use the numbers.

In the aftermath of war, the UN humanitarian office has published final death tolls based on its own research into medical records. The UN’s counts have largely been consistent with the Gaza health ministry’s, with small discrepancies.

Discovering the true history behind St Patrick’s Day on an 82-mile hike that honours Ireland’s patron saint

Published

on

St Patrick’s Day is an excuse for craic. My mother’s Irish and on March 17, like many, I raise a glass to the man who rid the Emerald Isle of snakes. But that is my only knowledge of Ireland’s patron saint.

So, I decided to explore the Saint Patrick’s Way, an 82-mile hiking trail from Armagh to Downpatrick in Northern Ireland.

I begin with a Guinness in Rafferty’s Bar.

‘You know St Patrick was one of your lot,’ the barman says, quietly adding. ‘English.’

‘English?’

He nods.

St Patrick was born in Roman Britain, kidnapped by Irish pirates and sold into slavery before escaping to France, where he studied religion and eventually returned to Ireland as a missionary.

One of his early converts was Chieftain Daire, who gave him land to build a church on a hill outside Armagh.

The Saint Patrick’s Way begins at this Church of Ireland St Patrick’s cathedral. I will encounter many more churches bearing his name.

They’re like Murphy’s bars, but without the Guinness.

The route winds through Armagh’s orchard country, source of tangy cider and crisp apple tarts, before passing through linen-weaving centre Bainbridge and beside the Newry Canal.

From Newry to 18th-century Rostrevor, I stroll country lanes with views of sparkling Carlingford Lough.

Rostrevor sits on its shores, the birthplace of Robert Ross, the British major-general who burned down the White House during the war between Britain and the U.S. in 1814.

It was also a favourite spot of Belfast-born C.S. Lewis, whose inspiration for Narnia was the snow-covered Mourne Mountains, backdrop to the town.

In Kilbroney Park, I find I am not the only one looking for the wardrobe door, the starting point of a Narnia Trail through the forest.

When I reach the lamppost, a small girl asks, “Have you seen Mr Tumnus?”

I head for the mountains. These imposing masses of slate and Silurian greywacke (a coarse sandstone) are where Saint Patrick converted local hill folk.

Wild, windy and wet, this part of the route requires good navigation skills – but you needn’t fear snakes.

A hiker I meet on the summit of Butter Mountain, said Patrick never drove out any. It was a metaphor for purging Ireland of its pagan ways.

I head down through the beautiful beech Tollymore Forest, familiar as a setting in TV’s Game Of Thrones, to the seaside resort of Newcastle. I know a proper pilgrim would dine on a potato, but why make do when there are langoustines, turbot and plaice on the menu?

Next day, I continued to Down Cathedral, in Downpatrick, where the saint is buried beneath a hefty slab of granite carved with the single word ‘Patrick’.

At the nearby glass Saint Patrick Centre, I learn that Patrick was never officially canonised.

So, Ireland’s patron saint was neither Irish, nor a saint, nor did he drive any snakes out!. What he did do was change the course of the island’s history.

If not for Saint Patrick’s return it might have remained the pagan and inhospitable place the Romans deemed not worth conquering.

The trail is a walk through the history he created and an area of beautiful landscapes. That’s an excuse to raise a glass to Saint Patrick on March 17, to be sure.

Haiti gang leader vows to ‘fight’ prime minister as violence surges

Published

on

Haitian gang leader Jimmy Cherizier, also known as Barbecue, warned on Friday he would keep trying to oust Prime Minister Ariel Henry, and asked families to keep children from going to school to “avoid collateral damages” as violence surges in parts of the capital.

Issued on:

2 min

Heavy gunfire and traffic disruptions were seen in some areas of Haiti’s capital, where more people fled homes close to the fighting as burnt buses lay on the streets and burning barricades filled the air with thick, gray smoke.

“The battle will last as long as it needs to. We will keep fighting Ariel Henry. To avoid collateral damage, keep the kids at home,” the gang leader said at a press conference.

Cherizier is a former police officer who heads an alliance of gangs and disrupted the country when he blocked its biggest oil terminal in 2022. He has faced sanctions from both the United Nations and the United States Department of Treasury.

By late Friday, there were reports armed men had attempted to take control of the capital’s main container port, as gangs threatened to attack more of the city’s police stations. Reuters was unable to immediately verify these reports.

A video, meanwhile, went viral on social media appearing to show two murdered policemen, which SYNAPOHA police union leader Lionel Lazare told Reuters depicted the killing of some of the four officers who were slain on Thursday.

Members of another police union, the SPNH, gathered outside the force headquarters earlier in the day calling for the recovery of the bodies.

In a statement, Prime Minister Henry’s office said it was “outraged by the acts of violence and terror orchestrated by armed bandits,” and expressed condolences to victims’ families, saying the government would continue to work to resolve the conflict.

Violence ramped up during Henry’s visit to Kenya this week. The two countries signed earlier in the day a security deal that Nairobi hopes will satisfy a domestic court’s objections to its plan to send 1,000 police officers to lead a UN-approved mission aimed at tackling gang violence in Haiti.

Henry had previously been in Guyana for a regional Caribbean summit, during which he told leaders he would hold elections by August 2025, after postponing an earlier pledge due to the insecurity.

Henry came to power after the 2021 assassination of the country’s last president. Haiti last held elections in 2016 and ensuring a transition of power is a goal of the international mission alongside securing routes for humanitarian aid.

The United Nations estimates some 300,000 people in Haiti have fled their homes.

Taking a daily fibre supplement can improve brain function in those aged over 60 in just 12 weeks, a study has found.

The pills can improve performance in memory tests associated with early signs of Alzheimer’s disease, according to researchers at King’s College London.

Dr Mary Ni Lochlainn said she is ‘excited to see these changes in just 12 weeks’, adding: ‘This holds huge promise for enhancing brain health and memory in our ageing population.

‘Unlocking the secrets of the gut-brain axis could offer new approaches for living more healthily for longer.’

The study, published in Nature Communications, tested two plant fibre supplements – inulin and FOS – which help healthy bacteria grow in the gut. The pills were given to one half of 36 pairs of twins, with the others given a placebo.

Milei warns Argentinian lawmakers he will govern ‘with or without’ their support

Published

on

Argentina’s libertarian President Javier Milei, in his first policy speech to parliament Friday, said he would push his package of sweeping economic reforms whether or not legislators back it.

Issued on:

2 min

“We are going to change the country for good… with or without the support of political leaders, with all the legal resources of the executive,” Milei told lawmakers, who have stalled his project of deregulation and budget cuts.

Advertisement

“If you look for conflict, you will have conflict,” he told them.

Milei offered a recap of his first 82 days in office, in which he devalued the peso more than 50 percent, slashed state subsidies for fuel and transport, cut tens of thousands of public service jobs, and scrapped hundreds of rules in his bid to deregulate the economy.

“I ask for patience and trust,” Milei said. “It will be some time before we can perceive the fruit of the economic reorganization and the reforms we are implementing.”

Many of his planned reforms face challenges in court, with more than 60 lawsuits under way by labor unions, business chambers and NGOs, while Argentina has seen massive protests by citizens who fear Milei’s plans will leave them poorer.

“We have not yet seen all the effects of the disaster we inherited, but we are convinced that we are on the right path, because for the first time in history we are attacking the problem by its cause: the fiscal deficit, and not by its symptoms,” Milei said.

Advertisement

In recent weeks, Milei has reached out to influential provincial governors, party leaders and former presidents to forge a “new social contract” for the country, based on ten principles, including a “non-negotiable” balanced budget, “inviolable” private property, and public spending reduced to the “historic” level of 25 percent of GDP.

Decades of mismanagement

Faced with parliamentary reticence, Milei scrapped almost half of the initial 664 articles in the sweeping deregulatory measure issued after he took office, then withdrew it altogether.

But the president has vowed to return his bill to parliament. And he has threatened to pass his reforms by presidential decree if lawmakers do not fall in line.

Argentina is grappling with severe economic struggles after decades of mismanagement that has driven poverty levels to nearly 60 percent and pushed inflation to an annual rate over 200 percent.

Milei, a 53-year-old political outsider, won a resounding election victory last year on a wave of fury over a financial crisis marked by rampant money printing and fiscal deficit.

Advertisement

The government claims some of Milei’s changes are already bearing fruit: In January, Argentina reported its first monthly budget surplus in 12 years while boosting foreign currency reserves from $21 billion to $27 billion.

But as annual inflation continued to bite, the poor were hit hard as Milei also ripped away generous transport and energy subsidies and froze aid to 38,000 soup kitchens pending an audit.

Milei insists Argentina has to swallow a bitter pill to rescue the economy, and has warned the population to brace themselves for things getting worse before they get better.

Frank Lampard insists that he is ‘keen to get working again’ as he eyes a managerial comeback 10 months after his miserable caretaker spell in charge of Chelsea

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has teased a return to management, 10 months after his disastrous spell as caretaker boss of his old club. 

Lampard had headed back to the Stamford Bridge dugout part way through last season following the sackings of Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter. 

But it turned out to be a miserable period as the Blues won just one of his 11 games in charge. The 45-year-old has since appeared on TV on a pundit and often noted his delight in spending time with family. 

In fact, Lampard maintains that he is relishing the quality time with his children but stated that he is now keeping his eyes open for his next role. 

‘I’m enjoying being with the family and looking to get back at some point.’ He told talkSPORT. ‘Hopefully something comes up that feels right for me, I’m keen to get working again but as I reiterate, I’m enjoying family life.

‘They’ve all been big challenges for different reasons. I enjoy working with players, improve players and the team, so let’s see what comes.’

The former England international’s first managerial position came with Derby County, with whom he advanced to the Championship play-off final in 2018. 

Remarkably, that was enough for the Blues to come knocking a year later as they prepared to embark on a season with a transfer ban.

Lampard was key in facilitating the first team integration of youngsters such as Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Reece James, though he was ultimately dismissed just 18 months into the contract. 

In January 2022, he took the risky decision to manage relegation-threatened Everton but he led them to safety only to last a few more months in the job before he was sacked just a year later.

Iris Apfel, fashion icon and self-proclaimed ‘geriatric starlet’, has passed away at the age of 102.

The news was announced on her Instagram page on Friday, with a beautiful photo of the famous fashionista in a regal black and gold gown and wearing her signature black glasses. 

‘Iris Barrel Apfel, August 29, 1921 – March 1, 2024,’ read the caption on the post. 

A spokesman for her estate confirmed the news to the New York Times and revealed that she died in her Palm Beach, Florida, home.

Apfel’s signature style — chunky bracelets, layers of necklaces, plus those iconic heavy-framed glasses – helped propel her into late-in-life fashion icon, or a ‘geriatric starlet,’ as she frequently referred to herself.

She only came to worldwide attention in 2005 when the Metropolitan Museum of Art showed an exhibition focusing on her fashion sense titled Rara Avis (Rare Bird). 

She became a model at age 97, and modeled for Vogue Italia, Kate Spade and M.A.C.

She is also the oldest person to have had a Barbie doll made by Mattel in her image.

Iris is truly proof that age is just a number.’

Rocker Lenny Kravitz wrote: ‘You mastered the art of living. Thank you for your energy and inspiration.’

Actress Hannah Waddingham also paid tribute, writing: ‘Ohhhhhh. Goodnight and God bless Ma’am. What joy and endless style you brought to so many.’

‘Rest in beauty icon.’ 

Iris Apfel (born Iris Barrel) was born on August 29, 1921 in Astoria, Queens, New York City — the only child of Samuel Barrel and Russian-born wife, Sadye Barrel.

She started her career as a copywriter for Women’s Wear Daily and interior designer Elinor Johnson.

In 1948, she married husband Carl Apfel, and the duo owned a textile firm until they retired 44 years later. 

Over the years the pair worked on many restoration projects, including at the White House.

Carl died at the age of 100 in 2015. 

Iris continued to have unbelievable enthusiasm for life, and at 90, she began teaching at the University of Texas at Austin.

At 94, she was the subject of a documentary by Albert Maysles, simply titled Iris.

In 2019, at 97-years-old, Iris landed a modeling contract with IMG - the same agency that has repped top stars like Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and Miranda Kerr; seen in 2016

Even as she was pushing 100, Apfel showed no signs of slowing down, and told WWD she’s ‘very excited’ about her new deal.

Though the star drew the line at walking down the catwalk, telling the publication: ‘How can I compete on runway? That’s ridiculous,’ she said. 

‘We’ll be doing hopefully collaborations, or maybe I’ll be a spokesperson. I leave it to them. They know better than I.’

‘I’ve had all kinds of interesting commissions in my limited career. Everything from vodka and automobiles to beauty products, and I’ve also had a number of interesting collaborations with big stores like Bon Marché in Paris, the Landmark Mall in Hong Kong, Macy’s and Bergdorf Goodman.’

Over the past decade Apfel has modeled for a seriously impressive roster of big-name fashion and beauty brands.

She’s faced campaigns for Kate Spade, MAC Cosmetics, Alexis Bittar, Macy’s INC, Blue Illusion, HSN, Le Bon Marché, and the German brand Aigner.

In each one, she’s showed off a facet of her style, including her signature oversized round glasses.

She previously gave her opinion on style, telling Women’s Wear Daily: ‘I don’t think style has any age. It’s in your DNA and inherent. It’s a matter of attitude.’ 

No one was as surprised by her late-in-life modeling career than Apfel herself. Though she’s had a long career in fashion, it was owning her own textile company, Old World Weavers, from 1950 that kept her in the fashion world.

‘I never expected my life would take this turn so I never prepared for it. It all just happened so suddenly, and I thought at my tender age, I’m not going to set up offices and get involved with all kinds of things,’ she said.

‘I thought it was a flash in the pan, and it’s not going to last. Somehow, people found me. People would just call. Tommy Hilfiger said that was no way to do it, and he put us together. I’m very excited and very grateful.’

In addition to modeling, she also designed her own clothing and accessories line for HSN and published a book in 2018.

‘My husband, until he passed on, we used to sit there and laugh and laugh, and I’d say I’m no different than I was 70 years ago, and all of a sudden, I’m cool, I’m a hot property. It’s ridiculous. People tell me it’s because I’m real… and say what I think,’ she added.

In 2016 she gave some advice for young female entrepreneurs at the Women’s Entrepreneurship Day conference at the United Nations.

‘Taking opportunity and running is very important, because I never had a business plan in my life. Things just came along and I grabbed them,’ she told them.

‘I’m glad to see all these glass ceilings are being smashed and I know I feel that if women were a little more forceful and stuck to it there wouldn’t be so much of this feeling,’ she added.

‘I know when I started, the dinosaurs were roaming the Earth, I’m 95 and I’ve been working my whole life. It wasn’t easy but if you really want to do it, you can do it.’

Asda billionaire Mohsin Issa insists there is no rift between him and his younger brother Zuber

Mohsin Issa has insisted there is no rift between him and his younger brother Zuber.

The billionaire brothers and private equity firm TDR Capital took control of Asda in a debt-fuelled £6.8billion swoop in 2021.

But their relationship was understood to be under strain. Moving to quash the speculation yesterday, he told the BBC: ‘There is absolutely no rift between myself and Zuber – we get on exceptionally well. 

‘We talk to each other probably two or three times a day.’

While Mohsin, 52, runs the supermarket, Zuber, 51, oversees forecourt giant EG Group, which is also part of the family empire.

The comments come just weeks after speculation that the brothers had fallen out over Mohsin’s relationship with Victoria Price, an accountant he met in 2018 when she presented him with an entrepreneur of the year award.

Mohsin has confirmed that he is in a relationship with Price, 41, after walking out on his wife of nearly 30 years Shamim. The entrepreneur also said he was carrying out a ‘reset’ at the grocer before appointing a chief executive to run the business.

Nature’s the star at The Datai resort in Malaysia. But… beware the monkeys raiding the minibar!

Published

on

My wooden villa stands on stilts, surrounded by towering trees that obscure the view to the ocean 200 yards away. At night, giant squirrels thud onto the shingle roof.

By day, long-tailed macaques perch overhead, throwing jungle debris at each other. They are ever hopeful that I might leave my balcony door open.

‘Macaques appreciate creature comforts,’ warns my host, ‘and wouldn’t hesitate to raid your minibar and throw a party in your villa.’

I am on the Malaysian island of Langkawi, staying at The Datai, which just celebrated its 30th anniversary, having set the bar for luxury when it opened.

The 65-acre site lies deep within a rainforest and mangrove swamp that creep up to a crescent of caramel sand on the Andaman Sea, home to more than 250 bird and 500 butterfly species.

Like most guests, I barely venture beyond the hotel grounds, a pristine microcosm of an island that became a Unesco Global Geopark in 2007.

That Langkawi has not been overdeveloped is due in part to the legend of Mahsuri’s Curse.

‘In the late 1800s, a beautiful bride was wrongly accused of adultery by jealous villagers and put to death,’ explains Irshad Mobarak, Datai’s head naturalist, during a walk to a rockpool for an early-morning dip.

‘With her dying breath she cursed the island for seven generations.’

Fearing the curse, people stayed away until it ‘expired’ in the mid-1980s – and then tourism took off.

Conservation of this environment is central to The Datai’s philosophy, with initiatives covering land, sea and local community.

So it is that one day I find myself with Dr Ravinder Kaur from Gaia, a social enterprise which has teamed up with The Datai for the protection of hornbills on the island.

The birds – known as nature’s gardeners for their habit of regurgitating seeds – are threatened by poachers and deforestation.

We spot a male and wait for him to visit his nesting partner, bringing her the choicest fruit he can find. She has enclosed herself in the hollow of a tree, but the cautious bird, having spotted our presence, does not want to reveal its location.

When I do see one it is by chance, over breakfast.

An oriental pied hornbill is making a flurry of trips to a keruing tree by the main pool.

It starts a rush for cameras among guests – and opens up opportunities for the thieving macaques.

A walk through the ten million-year-old rainforest with nature centre manager Dev Dass reveals more wonders.

Trying not to trip over roots in the shaded forest floor, I see tiny orchids and hardwoods rising over 100 ft.

Wedged in the cleft of one tree, a rare colugo – the only ‘flying’ primate – slumbers, his fur blending with the bark.

‘Poachers hunt for critically endangered animals and cut down precious agar trees as the wood fetches £2,500 per kilo,’ says Dev. ‘We employ 35 security guards to protect our rainforest.’

It is midday now and I have an appointment to go kayaking in the mangroves.

Through a narrow channel I paddle into another world – sun-dappled and still but for the insistent whirr of cicadas and the squawk and trill of birds. I glide and duck under branches.

A collared kingfisher takes flight as a spectacled langur leaps through the canopy. Less cuddly are reticulated pythons, which also haunt the mangroves.

The next day, I feel the call of the ocean. I have the freshest catch – grouper, snapper, pomfret – for lunch at the Beach Club.

As the tide ebbs, I watch tiny sand bubbler crabs set to work, creating their granular artworks, like a mantilla of lace.

‘Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads,’ proclaimed American naturalist Henry David Thoreau. I would agree with that.
