**Abstract**

I will discuss recent joint work with Dan Loughran and Efthymios Sofos, in which we propose a new conjecture for how many members of a family of varieties have points in all completions of Q. I will illustrate the conjecture by discussing an important new instance in which we have shown that it holds: the family of diagonal planar conics. This resolves an old problem of Serre.
