Aboriginal Australians descended from a single founding population that started in Southeast Asia and arrived on the continent about 50,000 years ago, according to a new genetic study.

The first arrivals swept around the coasts in a matter of centuries, and then lived as nomads in discrete regions for tens of thousands of years after.

    Good night and good luck.

    The journalist Edward R. Murrow often ended his reports this way, but the signoff is usually remembered in connection to his CBS broadcast on this day in 1954.

    Murrow dedicated the entire episode of his show, “See It Now,” to analyzing Senator Joseph R. McCarthy’s hunt for Communists within America’s borders and the spectacle of his nationally televised hearings.

    “And upon what meat doth Senator McCarthy feed?” Murrow asked. “Two of the staples of his diet are the investigation, protected by immunity, and the half-truth.”

    One of Murrow’s more memorable quotes was, “We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason.” The senator was condemned by his colleagues later that year.

    The Times called the program “crusading journalism of high responsibility and genuine courage.” The episode was depicted in a 2005 film directed by George Clooney.

    McCarthy responded to Murrow on his program a month later, calling him “the cleverest of the jackal pack which is always found at the throat of anyone who dares to expose individual Communists and traitors.”

    Remy Tumin contributed reporting.
