Few, if any, of us pause for a moment to reflect why we have too much of everything. Our closets and drawers and refrigerators bulge. Our waist lines ...
The challenge in making science communication open and accessible lies in funding the distribution of these materials. Without institutional backing for such innovative projects, it will be entrepreneurial spirits in the likes of somersault 18:24 that will pioneer the revolution in science communication.
It came to pass, in the 21st century, that God gave up on the human race. He scrawled his message across the sky in words that were understood by ever...
New fossil evidence, published by Oxford University in Current Biology, demonstrates the surprising speed with which mammals evolved during the ancient Jurassic period.
We are a hugely wealthy country, and we can afford to go to Pluto and to educate our children to a much higher standard than we do. In fact, the way we became a hugely wealthy country, and the only way we can maintain our wealth into the future, is by investing in education, science, technology and invention.
I have a special wall in my office. The wall houses paintings that TFC students have created for me. It's a special place because it reminds me of the talent and kindness of our students.
One wonders what a Republican like Roosevelt would make of a Republican like Governor Walker. Roosevelt believed in democracy and the power of government to bring about change and progress.
Amongst the many macro forces shaping the context for decision-making and business innovation are a few old beliefs. "Survival of the fittest" is one of them. It's a term you'll likely hear at the conclusion of a hostile takeover or mergers and acquisitions when the thrill of the hunt is complete.
Change, expansion and evolution is the reality of the physical universe. Our own planet has undergone near five billion years of evolution. However,...
There is actually no uncontroversial explanation for the as-of-yet unparalleled size of dinosaurs. If you look at the distribution of large sizes in dinosaurs, one distinction becomes clear: the only dinos that were small (less than 1m) were carnivorous theropods. Except for the 70 cm Fruitadens Haagarorum, no herbivorous ornithischians were small.
The brain scan of a fossilized monkey skull has given evolutionary anthropologists new clues into the branching of humanity's ancient origins and is rewriting the current understanding of primate brain development.
Science is meant to be the opposite of a belief system. No one underlined this point more securely than Charles Darwin, who devised a theory of evolut...
The fact that those on the right assume that any attack on a person of color is racist is in itself racist: It looks no further than the color of his skin. When I look at Bobby Jindal the first thing I think of isn't his color. It's the way he ignores what he learned to earn his degree in biology from Brown to pander to the creationist, homophobes he hopes will vote for him.
Asteroids can help us understand our cosmic neighborhood, are great mineral deposits, but also present potential risks for humanity. We require more investment in telescopes, research and technologies to keep us safe.
Did you know that California is not in the West and that the "real America" is the Old Confederacy?
Some scientists say that Darwin's greatest insight of all time, is - that life on Earth evolves by natural selection. In today's IDEA Economy we no longer have to fear the saber tooth tiger. Is the biggest challenge facing the world today the need to reduce & reverse the impacts caused by climate change?
