Leukaemia cells

Researchers have shed light on how leukaemia evades treatment, and they've used a type of CCTV, to catch-out the dangerous cells. Leukaemia is a cancer of the blood with significantly high mortality rates, that's often resistant to chemotherapy treatments.

But British and Australian researchers have used a new 'street view' technology, to zoom in and spy on the invaders. And what they found, could change how the cancer is treated.

Dr Edwin Hawkins, from the Immunology Division at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, led the study.

1:25 Investigating Surf Rage

Many surfers will tell you they've almost come to blows in the water when its deemed that other surfers have breached the code.. dropping in on their wave for example.

It's called surf rage. And it's not just surfers fighting over who gets first dibs on a wave, but also some locals believing they effectively own their surf break and have more rights than newcomers.

Jhan Gavala is a kaupapa Māori Psychology Lecturer at Massey University and a keen surfer. He's experienced surf rage, and decided to undertake research into surf rage and what causes it.

3:10 Chuck Klosterman: What If We're Wrong?

Some of the greatest concepts in human history start with the question What If? What if our generally accepted ideas are wrong?

Chuck Klosterman is a pop culture critic, author and essayist. His 9th book called, What If We're Wrong? Thinking About the Present as if It Were the Past.  He asks us to challenge what we are absolutely certain about and to think about the present from the vantage point of the future.
