Ah, the curious life cycle of scientific studies.
 
> Some scientific studies are popular from the start, garnering multiple citations from other researchers. But others can languish as 'sleeping beauties' for more than a century before awaking to glorious approval, a study finds. [...]

> Topping the team’s list [...] is ‘Concerning adsorption in solutions’, research published in 1906 that did not awaken until 2002. The famous Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen paper comes in 14th place [...] The longest sleeper in the top 15 is a statistics paper from Karl Pearson, entitled, ‘On lines and planes of closest fit to systems of points in space'. Published in Philosophical Magazine in 1901, this paper awoke only in 2002.

> In many cases, the beauty phenomenon occurs when research finds application in a field outside its own, says Radicchi — such as statistical methods that become useful in biology.

Good reminders for how to keep your private information private.

I once overheard a woman in the airport giving all her personal information to her bank over the phone. Name, social security number, mother's maiden name, address, etc.

While oversharing has become a problem, consumers could stop it by being careful what they post on social media.
