In The Harm in Hate Speech, Jeremy Waldron discusses a loosely defined category of expression that he addressed in a review of Anthony Lewis’s book Freedom for the Thought That We Hate in The New York Review in 2008, and in the Oliver Wendell Holmes Lectures at Harvard University in 2009.
A Chinese flag, not an American one, will be planted in the lunar dust when the next manned mission to the moon occurs some time around 2025. Scientific teams in Europe, not the U.S., are poised to discover the Higgs boson. Indeed, the U.S. has lost the initiative not just in space, but also in fundamental research.
Despite the stress he lays upon interiority, indirect communication, subjectivity, the individual, Kierkegaard (no less than does Hegel) knows we are at bottom relational beings -- we do not have our real being locked away like a treasure of substance in ourselves, but live it our and realize it in relation to others -- even if those others are partly within us, partly where others have permeated us.
Congress now speaks at almost a full grade level lower than it did just seven years ago, with the most conservative members of Congress speaking on average at the lowest grade level, according to a new Sunlight Foundation analysis of the Congressional Record using Capitol Words.
Researchers at UCLA, using brain-imaging data that was lost to science for a decade, have broadened the examination of Gage to look at the damage to the white matter 'pathways' that connect various regions of the brain
Maxwell's genius was to formulate the equations that exactly quantified the relationship between the electricity and magnetism, showing how a time-varying electric field, E, would generate a magnetic field, B, and vice versa.
Morris weaves biography in with the science, interviewing members of Stephen Hawking’s family–his mother, sister and aunt–along with friends and colleagues, including Roger Penrose, Dennis Sciama and John Archibald Wheeler.
TED didn’t see Hanauer’s ideas as being 'worth spreading.' The video now appears on YouTube. You can watch it and decide what you think: Censorship or selectivity? Or, let me add a third option: a lack of nerve?
Scientists took skin tissue from men who had suffered a heart attack and transformed it into 'induced pluripotent stem cells'. These cells were then grown into heart cells and injected into a rat heart, where they beat in time with the rat's cells.
Created by amateur astrophotographer Cory Poole, a math and science teacher, the video gives a great overview of the entire eclipse from start to finish. Poole watched the event from Redding, California, which was directly in the path of the moon’s shadow, allowing him to capture the full extent of the 'ring of fire.'
What marks this report as different from its predecessors is its profound indifference to the role of public education in a democratic society, and its certainty that private organizations will succeed where the public schools have failed.
