    The Perils of the New, Shiny George W. Bush

    George W. Bush has to be high in the running for the worst president in the history of the republic, and he probably would’ve reigned unchallenged for at least a few decades had Hillary Clinton’s inept campaign not led to her defeat. As it is, the less than two months of Donald Trump’s volatile presidency suggests his full four years will at least be neck and neck with Bush’s eight. Still, Bush’s presidency was historically disastrous, which makes it understandable that since Trump’s...

    Study debunks long-held myth probably arising from the confirmation bias. The full moon is NOT linked to busier hospital emergency rooms or more births, a new study finds.

    Imagine a future where you tap an app on your smartphone to summon a self-driving car. Heard this one already?

    Resistance to the Antibiotic of Last Resort Is Silently Spreading

    The alarm bells sounded on November 18, 2015. Antibiotic resistance is usually a slow-moving crisis, one of the reasons its danger can be hard to convey. One by one, over the years, the drugs used to fight the most stubborn infections have fallen by the wayside as bacteria have evolved resistance to them. For certain infections, the only drug left is colistin. Then on November 18, 2015, scientists published a report in the British medical journal The Lancet: A single, easily spreadable gene make...

    Max Levchin of Affirm: Seeking the Endurance Athletes of Business

    Q. Tell me about your early years. A. I was born in Kiev, Ukraine. I spent my formative years under the Soviet state, which wasn’t all that bad, actually. Ukraine is kind of a backwater, so we didn’t really have any of the tension from those days. I had a fairly happy childhood. I grew up in a very cool family — pretty much every person was a scientist. My entire family lived together. My grandmother, my grandfather, my mom and dad, my brother and I all lived in the same apartment, so I go...
