    We can't just keep ignoring all the black men who report being sexually assaulted

    An important lesson of the #MeToo movement has been that perpetrators of sexual assault include people who have been previously dismissed as potential predators — that sexual assaults can be and are committed by respected members of elite communities, including beloved comedians, Hollywood power players and prominent, well-paid journalists. No one, by virtue of their social or economic status, should be written off as incapable of assault.

    The Dark Core of Personality

    Over 100 years ago Charles Spearman made two monumental discoveries about human intelligence. First, a general factor of intelligence (g) exists: people who score high on one test of intelligence also tend to score high on other tests of intelligence. Second, Spearman found that the g-factor conforms to the principle of the "indifference of the indicator": It doesn't matter what test of intelligence you administer; as long as the intelligence test is sufficiently cognitively compl...

    Eminem’s ‘Marshall Mathers LP’ Is Now 20

    Slim Shady’s second major-label album was many things: a masterclass in rapping, an occasionally uncomfortable listen, a vessel for many tortured by angst, and, briefly, a national crisis. This is how he created a million others just like him.

    The sun has entered a ‘lockdown’ period, which could cause freezing weather, famine

    Our sun has gone into lockdown, which could cause freezing weather, earthquakes and famine, scientists say. The sun is currently in a period of “solar minimum,” meaning activity on its surface has fallen dramatically. Experts believe we are about to enter the deepest period of sunshine “recession” ever recorded as sunspots have virtually disappeared.

    The Universe Is Expanding Faster Than It Should. Why?

    The discrepancy between how fast the universe seems to be expanding and how fast we expect it to expand is one of cosmology’s most stubbornly persistent anomalies. Cosmologists base their expectation of the expansion rate—a rate known as the Hubble constant—on measurements of radiation emitted shortly after the Big Bang. This radiation reveals the precise ingredients of the early universe. Cosmologists plug the ingredients into their model of cosmic evolution and run the model forward to s...

    Scientists create a microchip that replicates the human brain

    Consumes the same energy as biological neurons. A chip 100 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair is capable of replicating the activity of a biological brain with the same neurological voltage. Thirty years ago, researchers at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst discovered a proteobacteria called the Geobacter in the Potomac River that could produce nanowires of electrically conductive proteins.
