"The reason why elderly female pensioners aren't using the internet isn't because they have a dread of new technology. It all comes down to the insurance man's actuary table – women generally outlive their spouses. For many widowed women, their golden years are spent in the lonely preoccupation of trying to stretch their pennies into pounds. It is hard to expect a senior citizen to be on Facebook if they can't afford to heat their home or eat a proper diet because of the limits of their state pension."
Harry Leslie Smith, from the class of 1923, writes eloquently for Comment is Free about the benefits of being online for older people - and the barriers to greater participation.

Nasa's hunt for other planets that could harbour life faces a setback: its Kepler space telescope is broken and, since it is in orbit around the Sun, may prove impossible to fix.
The failure of stabilising systems on the spacecraft could mean an end to the $600m mission's search, although Kepler has already outlived official expectations and the space agency is not yet ready to call it quits. The telescope has discovered scores of planets but only two so far that show strong signs of being habitable.

A construction company has essentially destroyed one of Belize's largest Mayan pyramids with diggers and bulldozers to extract crushed rock for a road-building project, authorities have announced.
The head of the Belize Institute of Archaeology, Jaime Awe, said on Tuesday that the destruction at the Nohmul complex in northern Belize was detected late last week. The ceremonial centre dates back at least 2,300 years and is the most important site in northern Belize, near the border with Mexico.

"Having watched this fantastically unthinking and heavy-handed adaptation, the opening gala of this year's Cannes festival, I feel the only way to make it less subtle would be to let Michael Bay direct it. As it is, the task has fallen to Baz Luhrmann, the director of Moulin Rouge! and Australia, a man who can't see a nuance without calling security for it to be thrown off his set."
Peter Bradshaw reviews The Great Gatsby for Guardian Film - and he's not too impressed.

The respected Washington-based Pew Research Centre warned that support for the EU has slid over the last 12 months, from 60% in 2012 to just 45% this year.

Arsenic in your beer? 10 gross ingredients you didn't know were in your food
Since the horsemeat scandal, more of us than ever before are holding a microscope up to what we eat. But no matter how many labels you read, you could still be consuming things you'd rather put on your "do not eat" list. From human hair in our bread to fish bladder in our beer, there are a lot of additives and food processing techniques that employ ingredients and chemicals few would classify as "appetising". It's a reminder, frankly, that non-processed foods are your best bet.

A World Health Organisation (WHO) official has said it seems likely that a new coronavirus that has killed at least 18 people in the Middle East and Europe can be passed between humans, but only after prolonged contact.
A virus from the same family triggered the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) that swept the world after emerging in Asia and killed 775 people in 2003.

Why we're watching: Zoom Rockman
Zoom Rockman is a 12-year-old prodigy who writes, illustrates and biannually publishes his own internationally acclaimed comic, The Zoom! It's a snappy, satirical critique of urban life – the new issue tackles the horsemeat scandal – with characters like Skanky Pigeon and celebrity cameos such as Boris Johnson. It's genuinely hilarious.
He's been described as "the future of comics", is on Vogue's Hot List of 2013 and was invited to 10 Downing Street.

If the prospect of spending a thousand days up to 140 million miles away from the Earth was not enough of a deterrent, killer radiation levels and enforced radio silence would surely deter most volunteers from travelling to Mars. Nasa, however, has revealed that near-record numbers are applying for its astronaut training programme, as renewed enthusiasm for space travel is fueled by growing hopes of a manned Mars mission.

A neighbour said he let one of the women out of the house just south of downtown after he heard her screaming on Monday. In a recorded emergency call, the freed woman told the dispatcher: "I'm Amanda Berry. I've been on the news for the last 10 years."
