In the April 28 "Medical Examiner," Jessie Scanlon incorrectly translated the word "vegetables" as "vehiculos." That word means cars. The correct translation in this context is "verduras."


In the April 28 "Today's Blogs," Bidisha Banerjee incorrectly referred to Mexico City Mayor Andrés Manuel López Obrador as "Obrador" on second reference. It should have said López Obrador.

In the April 27 "Today's Papers," Eric Umansky originally stated that a Washington Post piece about the conviction of a Muslim cleric for incitement did not mention where his supporters later trained. In fact, the Post said some supporters trained near Kashmir.

In the April 26 "Architecture," Witold Rybczynski mistakenly stated that the Menil Collection was in Dallas. It is in Houston.

In the April 26 "Medical Examiner," Amanda Schaffer incorrectly said that PYY 3-36 is now in Phase 2 trials. PYY 3-36 is entering Phase 2 trials.

In the April 22 "Today's Blogs," David Wallace-Wells incorrectly cited Silvio Berlusconi's nickname as "Il Cavalieri." Berlusconi is commonly known as "Il Cavaliere," or, "The Cavalier."
