bullets   Community anger and frustration reached a critical point because of the Morrison Government's blatant refusal to address rape allegations against Attorney-General Christian Porter and hold an inquiry, which would, at least, establish the facts.

science   One day in the 1960s, a priest walked into an operating room in Cleveland to find a dead dog lying on the table. The transplant surgeon Robert White had drained its blood and cooled its brain to 50 degrees. The priest then looked on, aghast, as White spread a picnic cloth on the table and began munching on a sandwich.
