Marks & Spencer has started selling an independent eco-fashion brand on its website as part of a plan to reinvigorate its struggling clothing arm.

The Nobody’s Child label bills itself as an antidote to a damaging fast fashion industry and makes its £35 floaty minidresses and teadresses out of recycled polyester and sustainably-sourced viscose. The five-year-old London company says it is “not perfect” but “on a journey to making better decisions for the planet”.

The decision to stock outside brands is a departure for M&S which is still the country’s biggest clothing retailer. In May, Steve Rowe, the company’s chief executive, said it would stock guest brands both online and

The decision to stock outside brands is a departure for M&S, which is still the country’s biggest clothing retailer.

Research has made it clear that ordinary drivers don’t fully understand how driver-assist and active safety features work. While we wait for standard procedures to truly test these system on a level scorecard, the European New Car Assessment Program revealed its latest attempt to grade notable vehicles and their technology.

With help from Thatcham Research, NCAP revealed its Assisted Driving assessment on Thursday. It breaks driver-assist features down into three scored categories: Vehicle Assistance, Driver Engagement and Safety Backup. The first category scores the systems onboard to see how effective they operate, and how multiple systems work together to assist the driver. The second category looks at transparency: NCAP scores an automaker’s marketing materials for accuracy, how the car monitors the driver to ensure they stay alert and how the car communicates its status with

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a historic trailblazer, marked history one more time: On Friday, the late Supreme Court justice became the first woman and Jewish person to lie in state in the United States Capitol, an honor reserved for members of Congress, U.S. presidents or leaders of the military. She is only the second justice to be honored in this way; the other was William Taft, who was chief justice as well as president. 

Fact check: It’s true, Ginsburg and Scalia were close friends despite ideological differences

Ginsburg’s legacy of inspiring generations of women — many represented among the mourners who stood before her flag-draped casket — was on full display in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall, where centuries of the
