How Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap is healing people and the planet—one label at a time. “You don’t have to fuck people over to survive” are wise words I once heard radical comic book artist Seth Tobocman chant, repeatedly. It’s also the title of one of his books. Those words have stayed with me, and I’m a bit surprised more people don’t echo that sentiment.But one man—and his family business—does.Dr. Bronner’s.You might have seen Dr. Bronner’s soap for sale at your local health food store. The labels are legendary, and plenty of look-alikes have popped up, but only Dr. Bronner’s has the All One! manifesto written in tiny font on the label.This manifesto—principles of uniting humanity—is the reason for the soap. In other words, the soap is used to sell the label, not the other way around.“We view our commerce, Dr. Bronner’s soap company, solely in terms of promoting Dr. Bronner’s vision of a peaceful, united world across religious and ethnic divides,...

Captain Eoin Morgan's return to form is a positive sign for England as they aim to win their first World Cup, says former skipper Michael Vaughan.

England sealed the one-day series over Sri Lanka with a third successive win as another deluge and a risible error in the field prevented the hosts fighting back. Eoin Morgan‘s side were almost halfway through their pursuit of 274 when the thunderstorms which have blighted the tour made their way to Pallekele and ensured the result would be decided by the mathematicians once again. The final margin of victory, 18 runs on Duckworth-Lewis-Stern, was comfortable but England’s closing position of 132 for two after 27 overs would have been worse had Joe Root not been reprieved in unusual circumstances.

England eased into a 2-0 series lead over Sri Lanka as Eoin Morgan's unbeaten 58 and a disciplined bowling performance delivered victory in a rain-shortened third one-day international. The match at Pallekele was cut down to 21 overs per innings after play was delayed by almost six hours, the latest frustration in a monsoon-season tour at odds with both common sense and the elements, but England's well-oiled machine powered through for a seven-wicket win with 15 balls to spare. Morgan's half-century was a fourth in his last five knocks but his work was made considerably easier by the efforts of Adil Rashid and the returning Tom Curran.

In a repeat of the bout of international friendlies played in September, Malaysia ended their two matches in October with one win and one defeat after suffering a narrow 0-1 loss at the hands of Kyrgyzstan at Hang Jebat Stadium on Tuesday. There will be plenty of encouragement to be taken from this match as Malaysia (171) showed that the big difference in the FIFA rankings to Kyrgyzstan (91) meant little. Tan swapped more than half the team out from the one that started against Sri Lanka last Friday with the likes of Shahrul Saad, Syazwan Andik, Khairul Fahmi and Syahmi Safari getting into the first eleven.

Joe Denly has been handed an unexpected chance to resume his England one-day career more than nine years after his last cap, following an injury to Liam Dawson. Denly's call-up comes after slow left-armer Dawson was ruled out of the remaining three ODI's against Sri Lanka as well as a stand-alone Twenty20. While Dawson muses on the misfortune of breaking down on one of the few trips where England countenance playing three spinners, the resurgent Denly is preparing to seize an unlikely opportunity having made the last of his nine 50-over appearances in October 2009.

Despite leading Malaysia to a 4-1 friendly match win over Sri Lanka on Friday, debutant Mohamadou Sumareh declined to take credit for the victory. The 27-year old came on at the start of the second half in the match that was held in Colombo, while Malaysia were trailing by one goal, troubling the hosts' defence into conceding two goals. When met by the press at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Saturday morning, the Pahang forward insisted that the win was only attained by the efforts of every team member.

Malaysian forward Mohamadou Sumareh had a dream debut for his adopted country, when he led their 4-1 comeback win against Sri Lanka, in a friendly on Friday. When met at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Saturday morning, Malaysia head coach Tan Cheng Hoe praised the Pahang man's performance in the friendly, particularly how he has quickly adapted to the team. In their previous friendly, against Cambodia in September, Tan's charges had to come back from one goal down, to win the tie 3-1.

Only three more preparation matches to go for Tan before the important assignment that is the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup in November, and that starts with the Sri Lanka international friendly scheduled to take place on Friday. The match in Colombo will be Tan's seventh match in charge as the head coach after taking over from Eduardo Vingada following the failure to progress further in the 2019 Asian Cup qualifier. Sri Lanka are placed 199 in the FIFA rankings, 28 rungs lower than where Malaysia are sitting and despite the opponent hosting the match, Tan is very much expected to come away with his second consecutive win after the 1-3 victory achieved in the last match against Cambodia.
