    Biologists find weird cave life that could be 50,000 years old

    By Seth Borenstein BOSTON — In a Mexican cave system so beautiful and hot it is called both Fairyland and hell, scientists have discovered life trapped in crystals that could be 50,000 years old. The bizarre and ancient microbes were found dormant in caves in Naica, Mexico, and were able to exist by living on minerals such as iron and manganese,...

    Russian cloud over Trump not likely to fade with Flynn exit

    WASHINGTON — Questions about the Trump administration’s ties to Russia are hardly going to disappear with the firing of national security adviser Michael Flynn. Investigations are underway, and more are likely by the new administration and on Capitol Hill. U.S. agencies, including the FBI, have been probing Russian interference in the 2016...

    Bill Brownstein: Finding art in dangerous places

    It’s tough enough to create art in an atmosphere of stability. But doing so in politically/culturally sensitive parts of the world can be particularly daunting. As can be reporting on the endeavours of those who seek to make provocative statements in places where that is not always encouraged. Frank Fiorito and Nabil Mehchi are the creators...

    Netanyahu says ‘no doubt’ U.S. behind UN vote on West Bank settlements

    Bill Brownstein: Looking for art in unlikely places

    Nabil Mehchi and Frank Fiorito could have played it a lot safer. The Montreal-based creators of the five-part documentary series Interrupt This Program — which debuts Friday at 9 p.m. on CBC-TV — could have conducted their search for underground art scenes in relatively stable metropolises. Clearly, though, Mehchi and Fiorito like to live on the...

    Opinion: Victory Day in Russia gets personal

    This year’s Victory Day demonstration in St. Petersburg was a far cry from what I remember from my childhood, when we were obliged to march twice a year, portraits of the Politburo members in hand, in ostensible support for the regime.

    Opinion: All too often, journalists pay for press freedom with their lives

    My father stashed his war memorabilia in a wooden box a long time ago. After his death, my mother gave the box to me. It remained unopened until I planned a trip to Normandy. The Normandy beaches are a three-hour train ride from the Gare du Nord in Paris. Memorials to war and war heroes are scattered throughout the 100-kilometre stretch, most of...
