Boston artist Kofi Lost writes the Google Year in Search

The most Googled questions of 2020 aren’t so surprising: Why is it called COVID-19? Why is Australia burning? Why are people protesting? Why is the moon pink? Kofi Lost, a Boston-based artist tasked with writing and narrating last year’s Google Year in Search, a video that illustrates some of Google’s top searches from the year, sat for a while with a long list of the questions, pen in hand, paper blank.

'Fake' US leg band may get pigeon a reprieve in Australia

CANBERRA, Australia — A pigeon that Australia declared a biosecurity risk may get a reprieve after a U.S. bird organization declared its identifying leg band was fake. The band suggested the bird found in a Melbourne backyard on Dec. 26 was a racing pigeon that had left the U.S. state of Oregon, 3,000 kilometers (8,000 miles) away, two months earlier. On that basis, Australian authorities said on Thursday they considered the bird a disease risk and planned to kill it. But Deone Roberts, sport development manager

Animal welfare group Pigeon Racing Victoria is confident that Joe calls Australia home and is not a racing pigeon that travelled 13,000km from the United States to Melbourne. It is an issue that has reached the highest levels of government, with acting Prime Minister Michael McCormack warning Joe should 'fly home or face the consequences'. The imperilled pigeon appeared to be on death row, with federal quarantine

'The Most Horrific Time of My Career': When Years of Published Work Are Built on an Error

In September 2019 Nicola Smith, a molecular pharmacologist in Australia, faced a brutal decision. She'd realized that she'd made a mistake — or rather, failed to catch a mistake in her group's research before the crippling error was published — in two academic articles which were the culmination of years of work. And she could either tell the world, or pretend it never happened. Her students had been having trouble reproducing lab data. Once she looked into it and she figured out why, she told them, "Guys,
