09:05 NZ's catch nearly three times official count - study
A damning report on the number of fish caught in New Zealand waters has exposed six decades of under-reporting, and puts the true catch at nearly three times official figures. It also reveals deliberate and systematic fish dumping, institutionally embedded misreporting, high levels of wastage and warns that essential data is either lacking or missing because of inadequate reporting. The study was conducted by The Fisheries Centre at the British Columbia University in collaboration with Oxford and Auckland University. Dr Glenn Simmons was the lead researcher. Dave Turner, The Ministry of Primary Industries' Fisheries Management Director responds to the criticism of MPI leveled in the report.
09:20 The Pirates of Science
Sci-Hub is an online service where researchers can anonymously (and illegally) share academic papers which are normally locked behind the paywalls of publishers like Elsevier and Springer. The site currently hosts more than 50 million papers and was created by Kazakhstani neuroscientist Alexandra Elbakyan who found a way to hack into the publishers' websites while trying to access papers for a research project.
Dr John Bohannon is a contributing writer for Science magazine who's carried out an extensive investigation into the website and its users.

The camp covers 15 km2 of a remote desert plain, exposed to sand storms, freezing winters and intensely hot summers. What began as a short term solution for Syrians fleeing conflict in their homeland, has become a semi-permanent city - complete with schools, sewage systems, sports fields, barber shops and market places.
