Although a full transcript of the event is embargoed until the broadcast airs, a Viacom press release has disclosed some of the evening's material, and very surprisingly, in addition to taking a few punches, the US Medal of Freedom winner was able to give as good as he got.
Republicans are about to embark upon a summer of lies about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare.
How naive must one be to claim they don't "believe" in extra-terrestrial life. With all the evidence accumulated to this point in time how could anyon...
Stephen Hawking's boycot of a major academic conference in Israel pales in comparison to the words and deeds of Heidegger and Chomsky. Yet, it reminds us that the smartest people do not always have the right answers.
How unfortunate that a man as visionary as Stephen Hawking can peer so deeply into the universe but it is so myopic as to fail to see the righteousness of Israel's cause even as it stares him right in the face.

The fact that we have an arrow of time is a direct consequence of the initial cosmological conditions. Since we appear to be living in a forever-accelerating universe, the entropy will continue to rise, leading eventually to a cold death.
Have you ever considered the consciousness, or unconsciousness, of your dog? Well, a group of neuroscientists have been thinking on the subject pretty seriously, and it was announced last week that "humans are not the only conscious beings in the universe."
America has always had a pioneering spirit, and we have always admired pioneers. They may not wear buckskin anymore or climb into space capsules. They just may be the quiet person in the lab of a research university, studying particles too small to be seen.

All we can realistically do is achieve whatever knowledge is open to us to understand. This might well fall short of the expectations of my more optimistic fellow scientists. I think a little humility is in order.
It's imperative that parents, teachers, government and business leaders forge public-private partnerships to help young girls and boys find their competitive streak, patriotism, personal pride, and desire to think creatively.
