    “Valley of the Boom” captures the 1990s tech revolution in weirdly wonderful ways

    The first dot-com boom set the stage for a lot of the world we experience today. IPOs and insane valuations, tech companies without an obvious business model, the vague aroma of scams, all of it centered on Silicon Valley. Two crashes later, most of the big players are dead, merged, or dismembered. Yet some of the ideas—massive online social networks, web browsers as a software platform—have come to pass. So how did we get from the first boom to here?

    A wounded tiger has amazed wildlife experts by coming out of the wild to seek human help after he was wounded. The tiger, known as Tikhon, suddenly appeared at a remote Russian border post on the frontier with China over the New Year period, and refused to leave.

    Earthrise: how the iconic image changed the world

    No one told them to look for the Earth. It was Christmas Eve 1968 and the first manned mission to the moon had reached its destination. As Apollo 8 slipped into lunar orbit the crew prepared to read passages of Genesis for a TV broadcast to the world. But as the command module came around on its fourth lap, there it was visible through the window – a bright blue and white bauble suspended in the black above the relentless grey of the moon.

    Scientists Find A Brain Circuit That Could Explain Seasonal Depression

    Research suggests the winter blues are triggered by specialized light-sensing cells in the retina that communicate directly with brain areas involved in mood.Just in time for the winter solstice, scientists may have figured out how short days can lead to dark moods.

    The human brain needs to suppress obvious ideas in order to reach the most creative ones

    The human brain needs to suppress obvious ideas in order to reach the most creative ones, according to scientists at Queen Mary University of London and Goldsmiths, University of London.

Americans’ beliefs are becoming more post-Christian and, concurrently, religious identity is changing. Enter Generation Z: Born between 1999 and 2015, they are the first truly “post-Christian” generation.

    Defying Trump, Saudi Arabia chooses 'Saudi first' oil policy at OPEC meeting

    President Donald Trump has told foreign leaders that "America First" means he will always put the needs of America ahead of the needs of other nations — and that they should do the same for their own country. Saudi Arabia's leadership appears to be on board with that message. Last week, Saudi Arabia disregarded Trump's public pressure campaign to keep pumping at full throttle and cut fuel costs.

    Why Do People Mistake Narcissism for High Self-Esteem?

    The "charismatic air" of narcissists-- from their flashy attire, to their self-assured behaviors, to their charming glances, to their witty humor-- often makes a big first impression. At the same time, people seem to be really good at accurately perceiving narcissism in others based on minimal information (even just physical appearance is usually enough of a cue to accurately perceive narcissism). Which raises an interesting question: why are narcissists-- which are characterized by ex...

It led to the release of ‘Navigate on Autopilot’, which suggests lane...
