Rapper Kanye West once told the press he doesn't smile for photos because "it just wouldn't look as cool," and humanities scholars who have to write about something have written that the reason Dean became cool was because he didn't smile. But is it true?
People who believe they "eat more healthy" than others - the organic elite and vegetarians - have a food fetish for fresh vegetables. And Americans are told by government committees and pyramids they should want to eat vegetables, so they buy them and then throw them out when they start to spoil. When is the last time you threw out moldy pizza?
The reason is because a new analysis in Moleular Autism finds that Hans Asperger, the Austrian pediatrician for whom a mild segment of the autism spectrum is named, collaborated with Nazis and helped kill disabled children.
Nonetheless, some people swear by it, much as people believe other placebos. What to do if your doctor recommends it? In the United States, a doctor is ethically forbidden from prescribing a placebo outside a clinical trial, but it is known some do. And lots of folk medicine/alternative medicine/integrative medicine people will claim it works if you believe it works.
In 1907,Francis Galton recorded the entries from a competition where people guessed the weight of an ox. After analyzing hundreds of estimates the statistician found that while individual guesses varied wildly, the median of the entries was surprisingly accurate, within one percent of the ox's real weight.
Galton published the results and his theory of collective intelligence, the "wisdom of crowds," became part of the lexicon.
Advocates are claiming medical marijuana can help to fight the opioid epidemic but data show the opposite. Rather than being at lower risk, people who use medical marijuana may be at higher risk for non-medical prescription drug use.
Much of medical marijuana usage was always recreational and a new study in the Journal of Addiction Medicine finds that people who use medical marijuana have higher rates of prescription drug use - including pain relievers.
Does Use of Medical Marijuana Increase or Decrease Prescription Drug Use?
So Now You Are Celebrating Surviving The End Of The World - But Expect After Effects For A Few Weeks
For the last three weeks we've had constant PM's and comments on Doomsday Debunked as a result of a viral hoax that pranked probably hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Perhaps you are one of them, and got scared of an alien invasion?
It’s on the basis of some tweets by anonymous people that sketched a bizarre story that for some reason got many hooked, partly because it made no sense and they kept puzzling over this bizarre stupid story, even knowing it was silly, still they couldn’t help but nag away at it and getting more and more scared because it didin’t make sense.
The scholars are blaming modern monoculture farming, commercial forestry and gardeners could be making it harder for honeybees to store food and fight off diseases, a new study suggests. Human changes to the landscape, such as large areas of monoculture grassland for livestock grazing, and coniferous forests for timber production, is affecting the diversity of the ‘microbiome’ associated with honeybees’ long-term food supply, the authors claim.
Although gravitational waves from binary black holes have been detected, direct evidence using electromagnetic waves hasn't happened and astronomers are searching for it with radio telescopes. But then how can you tell them apart? Radio images have a limited resolution and image fidelity and at realistic image resolutions, even highly non-Einsteinian black holes seem like normal black holes.
TROLL ALERT: Thousands Panic Over Fake Voice Mail - Warning Alien Invasion On April 18 - Alleged From MH370 Black Box‽
This is going viral on Facebook and scaring thousands of people, many panic attacks, some suicidal. This is another of my Doomsday Debunked posts to help these vulnerable people, many of them young children, still at school, who read about this on their mobile devices. Ever since March 14th I've spent hours every day reassuring very scared and panicking people that the MH 370 flight recorder did not send a voice mail message to a random twitter user warning us of an alien invasion on 18th April. Honestly‽
This is a piling heap of stinking horse dung that attracts trolls like flies and beetles from thousands of kilometers away. Like the Titan Arum or Corpse Flower.
Moths exposed to increasing temperatures were produced more eggs and had better offspring survival when the population had more males competing for mating opportunities, three males for every female.
Phil/Evo Fundaments For Our Slave Behavior, Deceiving In Denial, Killing, Rape, Justifying War With Obvious Lies
Among the great apes, slavery is natural in all the races of the human (H). We should not be surprised about our personal slave behavior, as it comes natural. This co-evolution, or denied “back-reaction” of environment on the sub-systems is a general mechanism, consistently producing the denial of it, for example similar with rape:
Copy / Paste / Publish Fake April 23 Doomsday - Astronomically Absurd Story Shared Virally By Journalists Including Fox News
It’s a good way of locating some of the news sources that have no systems in place to filter out fake doomsdays.
They just went copy / paste / publish from the red top tabloids trash newspapers in the UK such as the Daily Express. If anyone runs this story cross them off your list of reliable news sources on astronomy, science or religion.
That includes Fox news, Ladbible, Daily Mail, Daily Express (originated it), Sun, etc etc.
But things may be different in 2018. A lot of the more culturally militant people have quit or been (ironically) marginalized because the science community sees the real opportunity for gain - if they can apply pressure while also being part of a solution.
A lot less of this stuff from 2017
