The startling revelation is made by two young Muslim men, best friends Waseem Iqbal and Naveed Ahmed, on tonight's episode of Channel 4's Extremely British Muslims. Many recruits come from a life of crime and see Islamic extremism as a chance to regain status and feel a sense of belonging, claims Waseem.

    The Soviet Union Killed Tens of Thousands of Whales for Virtually No Reason

    This year marks the 100th anniversary of Russia’s Bolshevik Revolution, which created the first communist state—so it’s time to think of the whales. In just a few decades, tens of thousands of whales were slaughtered by the Soviet Union in what the Pacific Standard Magazine, called “one of the fastest decimations of an animal population in world history—and happened almost entirely in secret.” The Soviet Union was part of a 1946 treaty setting a limit on the number of whales countrie...

    Universal Basic Income Accelerates Innovation by Reducing Our Fear of Failure

    Almost two centuries ago an idea was born with such explanatory power that it created shock waves across all of human society and whose aftershocks we’re still feeling to this day. It’s so simple and yet so powerful, that after all these years, it remains capable of making people question their very faith. The idea of which I speak is that through random mutation and natural selection, every living thing around us was created through millions and even billions of years of what is effectively...

    Trump Calling Everything Unfair Shows Just How Profoundly Privileged He Is

    Think about this for a second: when was the last time you earnestly exclaimed that something was unfair? If you’re over 8, it’s probably been quite some time; you likely can’t even remember. You know why that is? Well, at some point in your life, likely in elementary school, you were taught, or you realized on your own that life isn’t always fair and complaining about it does little to change that fact, or improve your situation. You start to grasp the way the world works, the ebbs a...

Big corporations are developing their own distributed ledger...

    First blood biomarker for multiple sclerosis discovered

    Although there is no known cure for multiple sclerosis (MS), there are treatments that can help prevent new attacks and improve function after an attack. However, there are three subtypes of the disease and determining this, as well as the appropriateness and effectiveness of a patient's current treatment, involves an array of expensive, time-consuming tests. Now, after a search lasting 12 years, an international team of researchers has identified a biomarker that would allow MS subtypes to...
