Personal resilience is a skill that can be learned. Very interesting new post from +Maria Konnikova who digs into the latest research. 
Perception is key to resilience: Do you conceptualize an event as traumatic, or as a chance to learn and grow? Credit Illustration by Gizem Vural

How much is a gravitational wave decreased in a light year? Does the rule of attenuation with the square of the distance apply like it does to all other forms of radiated energy? Weren't these two merging black holes 1.3 billion light years away?

Huge victories for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Still, no one who has won a contested NH primary has won the Presidency since '88.

A terrific Evan Osnos piece on the tension and contrast between the two sides of Marco Rubio: Rubio the Player, and Rubio the Natural.

The New Hampshire primary could lot have gone better for Donald Trump. There’s no settled moderate alternative; his most dangerous opponent, Rubio, is battered; and he leads every poll in every state. 
Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have dropped out of the race, but New Hampshire’s failure to winnow the Republican field to two or three candidates is disastrous for the Party’s efforts to stop Donald Trump. Credit Photograph by Gretchen Ertl / REUTERS
