The monster we have created and the allure it has to many Muslims around the world.
The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

Do you know if Royal Parks intend to keep the tracks on Rotten Row and parallel to Park Lane?
They don't appear in the diagram.
TfL's proposal is for safe space for cycling at Buckingham Palace. The Royal Parks have vetoed this plan Imagine cycling on London's new and impressive cycle highway with your teenage children. You're cycling along safe, prot...

In the nearly 40 years since the TSCA 74’s passage in the USA, more than 20,000 new chemicals have entered the market. “Only five have been removed,” Landrigan says. He notes that the CDC has picked up measurable levels of hundreds of these chemicals in the blood and urine of “virtually all Americans.” Yet, unlike food and drugs, they enter commerce largely untested.

Yet another example of how English speaking countries, in spite of all their Nobel prize winners, pursue the most idiotic policies.

One wonders: are they intrinsically stupid societies, or are they cursed by very cunning and ruthless elites, who manufacture propaganda which embeds in society and maintains their privileges?
New evidence about addiction isn't just a challenge to us politically. It doesn't just force us to change our minds. It forces us to change our hearts....

Interesting view. It goes some way to explain different rates of drug use in countries with different policies.

A well reasoned argument the civilised debate is the best way for a group of people (ie a community) to reach rational decisions

This is a very scalable concept. It works from the smallest community, to a city, a nation, and indeed to all humanity.
We are told that we are an irrational tangle of biases, to be nudged any which way. Does this claim stand to reason?

Studies show inconsistent coverage of violent global and regional conflicts. When Christians, Jews and other non-Muslims are killed by Muslims, Islam is identified as playing a direct role. When Muslims are killed by Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims, however, the religious identity of the violent perpetrators is downplayed or ignored.
The religious identity of violent perpetrators is only highlighted when they're Muslim.

20 years ago there were 20 million people on the Internet.
Google was just an idea in a couple of graduates' minds.

At the beginning of January the United Kingdom witnessed an atrocity that claimed as many victims as the number of people killed at the Charlie Hebdo building in Paris. No major media outlet reported this atrocity. The pub...

Scientists at the University of Rochester have created a metal that is so extremely hydrophobic that the water bounces on it as if it were repelled by a magic force field. Instead of using chemical coatings they used lasers to etch a nanostructure on the metal itself. It will not wear off, like current less effective methods.

The applications can be revolutionary: From the construction of airplane surfaces—which will avoid water freezing of the fuselage—to non-stick pans to phones to computers to TVs to cars to whatever you can imagine made of metal. They are also thinking of applying the technique to create 100-percent efficient water recollection systems in underdeveloped countries and the creation of latrines in areas where water is not abundant enough to allow for effective cleaning.

I'm against "punishment" in general, yet can see some justice in it if applied to those who would torture others on account of their imbecilic beliefs.
