From oil to fission:  Are nuclear-powered vehicles going to become available to the average citizen in the foreseeable future?  It appears that General Motors and Laser Power Systems have already been working on this technology, and although they're using an exotic luxury Cadillac to showcase their proof-of-concept, I imagine that it should work for most other lines of GM's vast array of vehicle models too.

There are a number of reasons I like this particular type of scientific progress, the primary three of which are as follows (please feel encouraged to add your top three reasons in the comments):

1. Elimination of emissions that are harmful to the environment
2. Reducing dependency on foreign oil producers (this is also political)
3. Scientific progress contributes once again to a better quality of life in the long run

Not having to worry about regular re-fueling is indeed a highly desirable luxury of convenience, and I do hope GM plans eventually to make this technology available next in their SUVs, trucks, and buses, so that more people can travel more conveniently to more science conventions (and other interesting places).
There are now over one billion cars traveling roads around the world directly and indirectly costing trillions of dollars in material resources, time and noxious emissions. Imagine all these cars running cleanly for 100 years on just 8 grams of fuel each. Laser Power Systems (LPS) from Connecticut, USA, is developing a new method of …

This chart depicts the public acceptance of evolution theory in 34 countries. Adults were asked to respond to the statement: "Human beings, as we know them, developed from earlier species of animals." The percentage of respondents who believed this to be true is marked in blue; those who believed it to be false, in red; and those who were not sure, in yellow.

Netikiu šitai durna statistika. Kad JAV kažkada buvo uždrausta Darvinizmas, tai tikiu. Bet ateistinėse šalyse? Nebent jaunimas per pastaruosius 20 bukinimo metų. Visi subrendę-suaugę turėtų evoliucija ti9kėti.

Yet another reason why understanding evolution has practical importance.
Seed companies and farmers didn't follow scientists' recommendations about growing a type of corn that had been genetically engineered to produce its own pesticide, and now the beetle they were battling has developed an immun...

H.Kissingerio laiškas. Kaip baigsis Ukrainos krizė?

"Bet koks vienos pusės bandymas dominuoti prieš kitą privestų prie pilietinio karo arba šalies skilimo. Bandymas elgtis su Ukraina, kaip su Rytų ir Vakarų konflikto zona dešimtmečiams paskandintų Rusijos ir Vakarų, ypač Europos bendradarbiavimą tarptautinėje politikoje."

Got it? Europe created the EU and the euro, but now has no idea why the EU exists or why the euro exists, and what they are supposed to accomplish.
There are those who believe the goal is to facilitate intra-Europe trade.
There are those who believe the goal is to create a united Europe politically.
Or financially.
Or militarily.
Or economically.
But they’re not quite sure why.
Or how.
There are those who believe the goal is to maintain the euro. But they too are not quite sure why or how.

The debate Edward Snowden envisioned when he revealed the extent of National Security Agency (NSA) spying on Americans has taken a bad turn. It's time to face these arguments directly. So here are ten myths about NSA surveillance that need debunking.

http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/182368464/2013-zuckerman.pdf : "A meta-analysis of 63 studies showed a significant negative association between intelligence and religiosity. The association was stronger for college students and the general population than for participants younger than college age; it was also stronger for religious beliefs than religious behavior. For college students and the general population, means of weighted and unweighted correlations between intelligence and the strength of religious beliefs ranged from −.20 to −.25 (mean r = −.24). Three possible interpretations were discussed. First, intelligent people are less likely to conform and, thus, are more likely to resist religious dogma. Second, intelligent people tend to adopt an analytic (as opposed to intuitive) thinking style, which has been shown to undermine religious beliefs. Third, several functions of religiosity, including compensatory control, self-regulation, self-enhancement, and secure attachment, are also conferred by intelligence. Intelligent people may therefore have less need for religious beliefs and practices."

First systematic analysis of its kind even proposes reasons for the negative correlation.
