His death was confirmed on Instagram by his twin brother Patrick Perkins.

“I can’t even really put into words what this loss means for me,” Patrick wrote. “I’m often asked the question, ‘what’s it like to be a twin?’ and my response is usually, ‘what’s it like to NOT be a twin?’…it’s all i’ve known. And i’m struggling to find the words to explain what it will be like for me to live in this world without him.”

For a generation once devoted to the now-defunct blink-and-miss-them Vine clips, Adam Perkins was a familiar and widely shared touchstone. His Chili’s clip is reported to have racked up more than 20 million views in a year, launching scores of remixes, spoofs and tributes on the platform. He was followed by nearly 300,000 fans before Vine closed in 2017.

After the Chili’s clip, Perkins posted other popular Vine clips and later graduated from New York University with a degree in musical composition. He released his album Latch Relay in 2018 under the name Plas Teg. Brother Patrick said on Instagram that he plans to re-release the album on vinyl as a tribute to Adam.

In his most recent Instagram post, Adam Perkins wrote on March 21, “Remember adam from vine? he’s 24 now and a business analyst working in data. feel old yet? copying packie because we’re twins and supposed to do that.”

It took that sense of pity for me to realize that I could try to uncover the basis of my ideas about the personality traits of first and second children—and whether there was anything to them. It was 1874, and Francis Galton, an intellectual all-rounder and a half cousin of Charles Darwin, published English Men of Science: Their Nature and Nurture. In his book, he profiled 180 prominent scientists, and in the course of his research Galton noticed something peculiar: among his subjects, firstborns were overrepresented.

In the world of astronomy, there would be no bigger accomplishment than finding life on a planet outside of Earth. We know there's no intelligent life in our solar system outside of Earth. There's still a chance we find some form of life on Mars or, better yet, beneath the icy crusts of moons like Enceladus or Europa, but if we want to find extraterrestrial life we might have to look to other star systems for it. That means attempting to glean information from observations made at an incredible distance, and as a new research paper published in AGU Advances points out, we might end up "finding" life that isn't really there. In the paper, the authors explain that current telescope technology may ultimately produce false positives when researchers are trying to find signs of life in other worlds. They say that while we may be able to detect the presence of oxygen in a planet's atmosphere with greater and greater reliability, this isn't enough to declare a planet habitable, much less determine if there's life present there. Telescopes capable of "characterizing planetary environments" would be absolutely critical for scientists hoping to prove life exists on another world. This means detecting other so-called "biosignatures" that hint at the presence of life in addition to the fact that a planet may have oxygen available. "This is useful because it shows there are ways to get oxygen in the atmosphere without life, but there are other observations you can make to help distinguish these false positives from the real deal," Joshua Krissansen-Totton, first author of the study, said in a statement. "For each scenario, we try to say what your telescope would need to be able to do to distinguish this from biological oxygen." The issue here isn't so much that oxygen is a poor indicator of life. Indeed, oxygen is, as far as we know, required for life to exist on a planet, so finding it in a planet's atmosphere would be a very big step toward determining habitability. However, we know that oxygen could exist on a planet without life, since the breakdown of water from radiation could also cause oxygen to built up in a planet's atmosphere. At the same time, geological events can produce an abundance of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, and seeing all of these gasses together around a planet might make scientists jump to the conclusion that there is life there when in reality it's nothing more than a wet, lifeless rock. "If you run the model for Earth, with what we think was the initial inventory of volatiles, you reliably get the same outcome every time—without life you don't get oxygen in the atmosphere," Krissansen-Totton explains. "But we also found multiple scenarios where you can get oxygen without life."

HONG KONG (Reuters) - "Better Days" director Derek Tsang said his Oscar-nominated film could inspire other Chinese artists to pursue difficult topics despite the challenges in getting works past censors in China. The romantic crime film, shot in mainland China and the first by a Hong Kong-born director to receive an Oscar nomination, is shortlisted in the best international feature film category. Hong Kong TV audiences won't be able to watch a win in real time, though, because free-to-air broadcaster TVB won't air the Academy Awards for the first time in more than 50 years.

Ongoing volcanic eruptions have displaced about 20% of people in the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent as a U.N. official on Wednesday warned of a growing humanitarian crisis. Between 16,000 to 20,000 people were evacuated under government orders before La Soufriere volcano first erupted on Friday, covering the lush green island with ash that continues to blanket communities in St. Vincent as well as Barbados and other nearby islands. About 6,000 of those evacuees are considered most vulnerable, said Didier Trebucq, United Nations resident coordinator for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.
