Summary

In science news around the world, a report criticizes the World Health Organization's response to the Ebola epidemic, the European Commission appoints three scouts to seek new science advisers, the Oklahoma Supreme Court clears the way for earthquake lawsuits in the state, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Commission considers the fate of the red wolf in the wild, and more. Also, leadership changes are in the works at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado; at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution; and at the National Academy of Sciences. And researchers learn why the vivid yellow paint used in masterpieces by Henri Matisse and Vincent van Gogh has faded.
