Op-Ed: Oxygen release on Mars – New options for life?

Cape Canaveral - The discovery of variable oxygen levels on Mars has created a fascinating, if frustrating, series of possibilities for science. Are the oxygen levels related to organic life, or some unknown inorganic process?

Op-Ed: White noise improves hearing? Incredibly, yes.

Basel - Hearing loss is at plague levels. WHO estimates 466 million people worldwide have hearing loss at disability levels. 1.1 billion kids are estimated to be at risk of hearing loss. Now, someone’s found a way of improving hearing.

Op-Ed: Great science incoming as Voyagers find ‘Wall of Fire’

Cape Canaveral - The Voyager probes have left the best to last. They have just delivered the most important information ever regarding the realities of interstellar space. This is Big Science which will be critical for millennia to come.

Australia looks like it’s on fire from space as bushfires rage

Sydney - This is perhaps the worst early bushfire season in Australian history. Multiple out of control fires are burning in bone dry, drought stricken areas. From space, huge plumes of smoke from 90 fires make it look like the country is on fire.

Op-Ed: China wants ‘Earth-Moon Economic Zone’ by 2050

Beijing - This could be a serious game-changer. China wants to establish an Earth-Moon economic zone. That means the rights to use the Moon as a source of revenue, in any possible sense. The US may have a hard time keeping up.

Op-Ed: Insect apocalypse getting grim, severe population drops

Munich - Insects are critical operators in all ecologies. They pollinate, they support the food chain, and they manage a lot of materials in all types of environments. German studies indicate a 40% population crash, which is catastrophic.

Op-Ed: Following humans into space, fungi and bacteria are real risks

Boulder - Humans live surrounded by microorganisms of all kinds. The most persistent are on skin and on anything around people. They’re also going into space and could become a serious issue.

Op-Ed: Australia’s Aged Care — Sue the scum to extinction

Sydney - Aged care is Australia’s new four-letter word. A Royal Commission has found damning evidence of widespread abuse, neglect and total failure of the system. The findings are nothing less than repulsive.

Op-Ed: Rats learn to drive – Actually, there is a reason for that

Richmond - Rats driving cars may get a few cynical gut reactions from motorists, but they do now have their own little cars to drive. The idea is to check out the effects of driving on hormone levels which affect humans.

Op-Ed: Australian international student scandal – No English, big money

Sydney - You’d think it’d be common sense for international students coming to Australia to have a good working knowledge of English. Not so, apparently. A lot of students are getting student visas, with inadequate English, and they're not doing well.

Op-Ed: Whistleblower protest — Australian media blackout front pages

Sydney - What’s left of Australian newspapers blacked out their front pages in protest against laws which infringe on their ability to report the news. News Corp and its competitors joined together for the first time ever.

John Storyk, designer of Electric Lady — (Part 2) Special

Part 2 of the fabulous John Storyk interview. In this part, we learn about his meeting with destiny and jimi Hendrix. This was an almost folk tale, and it's truly astonishing.

John Storyk, designer of Electric Lady studio, marks 50 years Special

New York City - Imagine being 22 years old, and your first design job is to create Electric Lady studio for Jimi Hendrix! That’s how John Storyk got started. Since then, he’s seen digital music arrive and the whole story from the heart of modern music ...

Op-Ed: Computers / AI writing great literature? Who needs it?

Sydney - Computer-written content for news has been around. The question now is whether they can write actual literature. Given that there are already sites that basically create plots, and more, it could happen, but would it be worth reading?

Op-Ed: Brexit — A revenue disaster for the UK?

London - As Brexit makes its necrophiliac way to “fulfillment” the political arguments have overshadowed a few issues, like revenue. What happens when you dislocate your revenue base to this extent? You’re about to find out.

Op-Ed: Turkey enters Syria as US dithers, risk of new major war

Ankara - Turkey’s decision to move into Syria and fight US-backed Kurdish forces has a lot of ramifications, none of them good for regional peace.

Op-Ed: The holodeck has arrived — Nanoscale 3D light manipulation

Seattle - Is this the material that can create the holodeck? Could be. A new class of surprisingly versatile precision nanomaterials can deliver manageable active 3D light, and you can almost hear the tech guys drooling.

Op-Ed: Poison Fire Coral — Deadly fungus is also a major wakeup call

Cairns - The arrival of the truly dangerous Asian fungus in Australia is in many ways just another problem for Australia’s endless biohazards war. The problem is that this is a fungus, and fungi can spread fast.

Op-Ed: Imbecility, thy name is Brexit - Irish deal simply can’t work

Dublin - The UK proposal for an “all-island” regulatory zone in Ireland to get around the closed border problem is looking very much like desperation. Ireland would be the go-to place for EU goods entering the UK.

Op-Ed: Interstellar objects – More incoming, but what, when and where?

Sydney - The recent discovery of two interstellar objects, comet 2I/Borisov and asteroid Oumuamua in the solar system has raised the bar for expectations and predictions. Expecting more is one thing. The more pressing question is exactly what might be coming.
