Jacqui Lambie has yet to announce whether she will support the bill to have medevac repealed. AAP/Mick Tsikas. The Senate inquiry into repealing medevac has predictably split along party lines, with the government urging the legislation pass, and Labor, the Greens and Centre Alliance favouring retention of the law. Tasmanian crossbench senator Jacqui Lambie remains the key to the bill’s fate, and still declines to declare her position. Her spokeswoman said Lambie “is spending all weekend going through the report and then she has more time until it comes to the chamber”.

Stars come into existence because of a powerful force of nature called gravity. If you have a question you’d like an expert to answer, send it to curiouskids@theconversation.edu.au. How are stars made? –Zali, age 8, Karkoo, South Australia. How are stars made? Well, stars are not made, they make themselves! Or maybe I should say: they come into existence because of a powerful force of nature called gravity. Galaxies are where new stars are born. In galaxies, there are very large and fluffy clouds of gas and dust called nebulae. Gravity makes clumps inside these fluffy clouds - like raisins in a cake. When one of these clumps start to get tightly compacted and squished together, we say its density goes up. Density means how tightly something.

Our advantage lies in incommensurables, and it'll grow in importance. The rise of artificial intelligence has led to widespread concern about the role of humans in the workplaces of the future. Indeed, Israeli historian, futurist and publishing sensation Yuval Noah Harari warns in his most recent book that there might one day be little need for human labour. Harari fears the day will come when artificially intelligent algorithms outperform us in all respects that are useful to employers, consigning many or most of us to long-term unemployment. Unlike humans, these algorithms won’t be conscious – they won’t feel in the way that we do as they perform their tasks – but they will be clever enough to outdo us in the job market, perhaps easily so.

The just-announced into Australia’s retirement income system ought to be anything but run-of-the-mill. Taking place 25 years after the introduction of compulsory superannuation, it provides an opportunity to either fix a broken system, or discard it as failed experiment. Incremental reform won’t work. There’s a budget problem. The first and most fundamental problem with compulsory super lies in fiscal arithmetic. After a quarter of a century of compulsory super, some 70% of the aged population still rely on either a full or part age pension, which is an awful lot for a system whose stated aim is to .

Many of us are connected some way, somehow. Has this happened to you? You strike up a conversation with a complete stranger, only to discover that you share surprising connections. My own brush with this phenomenon took place recently at a conference in Canada. I was sharing a table with two strangers – one from Israel, the other from Baltimore, Maryland – when the sitcom “” came up in conversation. As it happened, the science adviser for the show is a good friend, and I never miss an opportunity to mention this. To my surprise, I was not the only one connected to the show.
