There are no cheap laughs in this musical celebration of fan fixation - but there is love in all its forms.
The Opal nuclear research reactor at Lucas Heights in Sydney. It does not produce nuclear energy but is used to produce medical radioisotopes and for other purposes.
The state of Australia's energy and climate change policy is reason to despair. But there may be a nuclear solution that keeps both sides happy.
Unless the Productivity Commission inquiry examines the government’s shortcomings, it will fail to bring any necessary improvements.
When it comes to improving Indigenous policies and programs, Indigenous communities should be the ones evaluating government – rather than the other way around.

Not talking about racism – what it is, what it looks like in Indonesia, and why it matters – has allowed it to become even more powerful.
The enamel on your teeth is what makes them sparkle. It also acts as a protective coating on the teeth.
A recent study was the first to establish a way to regrow tooth enamel. But what is tooth enamel and why is it so important?
Evidence shows electric vehicles have significant economic, social and health benefits.
Despite the overwhelming evidence that electric vehicle technology can deliver huge benefits, misinformation continues to muddy debate. Let's look at the facts.
The conductor’s role is to communicate with the performers and their audience. Their role is part artistic, part mathematical.
A conductor's role is about communication with performers and their audience. They do so using eye contact, dress, and of course, the fabled waving of the arms.
Las preferencias sexuales están influidas por los genes, pero no determinadas por ellos.
The biology of same-sex attraction seems to involve a host of genes.
The largest study of its kind - comparing the genetic sequences of almost half a million people - has revealed many different parts of our genetic code that seem to influence same-sex sexual behaviour.
The American Survival Research Foundation offered a reward of $1,000 for cracking one of Thouless’s two codes within three years of his death. It was not claimed.
Computer capabilities have boosted our decryption technology to great heights. How will the future compare to a past, one in which codes were thought to be a means of communicating after death?
Teeth cleaning at the dentist can remove plaque that regular brushing and flossing can’t.
Do you really need a dental clean every six months? Most healthy people will probably be OK if they go anually. But some people are at higher risk of cavities or gum disease, and should go more often.

Domenichino’s A Virgin with a Unicorn. Artists of the Middle Ages believed the unicorn could only be captured by a virgin.
Unicorns are a staple of social media. Today we might think of them as all magic and rainbows, but their past is one of ferocious beasts, religion, and mistranslation.
Pacific leaders don’t want to talk about China’s rising influence – they want Scott Morrison to make a firm commitment to cut Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.
It's becoming increasingly obvious that Australia's inability – or refusal – to take firmer action on climate change is undermining its entire 'Pacific step-up'.
Fortitude Valley is unique in Australia for its concentration of live music venues, like The Valley Drive In, in one small neighbourhood.

The good news is that the growth of live music continued under Queensland's liquor licensing reforms. The bad news is that venues rely on late-night alcohol sales to cover costs.
Expansion of cashew production for export poses potential challenges particularly around food security
