    A sexism row has erupted at the Australian Open after a TV commentator asked Wimbledon runner-up Eugenie Bouchard to "give us a twirl" in a post-match interview. Bouchard had just beaten Kiki Bertens 6-0, 6-3 in a second round match at Melbourne Park when she was interviewed by Ian Cohen, a Channel 7 tennis commentator, on court. Cohen asked Bouchard - one of the favourites for the first grand slam of the year - to twirl, to which the player replied: "A twirl, like a pirouette, here you go."

    BBC ^ | 19 December 2014 | Rebecca Morelle
    Getting ships to generate smaller bubbles as they sail across the oceans could counteract the impact of climate change, a study suggests. Scientists from University of Leeds, UK, say this would create a brighter wake behind a vessel and reflect more sunlight back into space. However, it could also increase rainfall in some areas. The findings were presented at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco. This is the latest idea from the hotly debated field of geoengineering - manmade global fixes to climate change. Suggestions for reducing the amount of solar radiation absorbed by the Earth range...

    Nasa's Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) has returned its first global maps of the greenhouse gas CO2. The satellite was sent up in July to help pinpoint the key locations on the Earth's surface where carbon dioxide is being emitted and absorbed. This should help scientists better understand how human activities are influencing the climate. The new maps contain only a few weeks of data in October and November, but demonstrate the promise of the mission. Clearly evident within the charts is the banding effect that describes how emitted gases are mixed by winds along latitudes rather than across them. Also...

    Arctic ground squirrels could play a greater role in climate change than was previously thought. Scientists have found that the animals are hastening the release of greenhouse gases from the permafrost - a vast, frozen store of carbon. The researchers say it suggests the impact of wildlife on this area has been underplayed. The findings are being presented at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco. Dr Sue Natali, from Woods Hole Research Center in Massachusetts, US, said: "We know wildlife impacts vegetation, and we know vegetation impacts thaw and soil carbon.

Invoking the apparations of Our Lady Queen of Higher Criticism, the Pope stated: While the ordinary magisterium from the very day of the Church's founding 1,981 years ago this past April has been most clear and constant, nevertheless we are most grieved at the dissemination of the "Errors of Alabama,"...

Monday afternoon was no ordinary school day for students at Sörgårdsskolan, in Mölndal, western Sweden. Shortly after lunch, an elk calf entered though one of the classroom windows.

"It looked like it came into the north side of town from the east ... and then got trapped,'' Mettler said. "There's a tall fence there that keeps people out of the old mine dumps and mine...
