a follow up on that. the new ceo - will lewis - is also from the telegraph, and so hiring the telegraph editor to run the news room is him hiring his tabloid friends. and there’s this:

the ceo has been pressuring reporters at the post ( and elsewhere ) on what they can write, and has fired the executive editor who pushed back

democracy dies in the hands of murdoch tabloids, i guess is their new tagline

( eta: looks like @kathypartdeux beat me to it, over on the follow-up thread. beverages. get your ice cold beverages. )

The trouble arises when humans introduce various earthworm species to areas where they are not native. Non-native earthworms likely first began arriving in North America a few hundred years ago as Europeans began to reach the continent, said Scott Loss, an ecologist at Oklahoma State University. But over time, more and more species have shown up and colonized the U.S., Mexico, and Canada — and a recent scientific study revealed some eye-popping numbers.

According to the paper, 70 different non-native species have now made it to North America, comprising a full 23% of all known earthworm species on the continent. Jerome Mathieu, an ecologist at the Sorbonne University in France and one of the paper’s authors, saw this impact first-hand a few years ago while studying earthworms at a nature reserve outside Stanford, California. “All I found was exotic worms,” he said.
