Non-tame Mice from Tame Failures of the Unique Branch Hypothesis
In this paper, we show that the failure of the unique branch hypothesis (UBH) for tame trees implies that in some homogenous generic extension of $V$ there is a transitive model $M$ containing $Ord \cup \mathbb{R}$ such that $M\vDash \mathsf{AD}^+ + \Theta \gt \theta_0$. In particular, this implies the existence (in $V$) of a non-tame mouse. The results of this paper significantly extend J. R. Steel's earlier results for tame trees.

MAD Saturated Families and SANE Player
We throw some light on the question: is there a MAD family (a maximal family of infinite subsets of $\mathbb{N}$, the intersection of any two is finite) that is saturated (completely separable \emph{i.e.,} any $X \subseteq \mathbb{N}$ is included in a finite union of members of the family \emph{or} includes a member (and even continuum many members) of the family). We prove that it is hard to prove the consistency of the negation: (i) if $2^{\aleph_0} \lt \aleph_\omega$, then there is such a family; (ii) if there is no such family, then some situation related to pcf holds whose consistency is large (and if ${\mathfrak a}_* \gt \aleph_1$ even unknown); (iii) if, \emph{e.g.,} there is no inner model with measurables, \emph{then} there is such a family.

Keywords:set theory, MAD families, pcf, the continuum
