Oh really?
 
Now it's time for post-lies politics

It's common knowledge that a large fraction of the British press was happy to lie in order to promote the Brexit cause. But what do you do when it becomes obvious to everybody that what you have been saying is rubbish? You just act as though you'd never said it. InFacts has done a great job pointing out examples where newspapers are putting out articles that directly contradict what they were saying just a few days ago, without batting an eyelid. In a similar vein, Vote Leave has been dismantling large parts of its website in the hope, I presume, that its supporters will forget what they were told (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/brexit-vote-leave-wipes-nhs-350m-claim-and-rest-of-its-website-after-eu-referendum-a7105546.html). And of course, the Brexit politicians have been swift to deny that they were making the promises and claims that they were making. On that last point, it may be that the lies were collective rather than individual: for example, I don't know whether Farage made the £350m per week claim, but he didn't exactly go out of his way to correct it.
Eurosceptic newspapers misled voters throughout referendum. Now they are writing about the dangers ahead - without even blinking an eye.

Interesting article.
 
“The mechanism for muscle fatigue and muscle damage causing cramping is best explained through an imbalance that develops in the nervous system control of muscle. Muscles tend to become very twitchy when they become fatigued or are injured,” said Schwellnus. You’re more likely to get cramps, then, when your muscles are working harder and are fatiguing, such when you’re out of shape or racing hard.
This means that to stop cramps you just need to get fitter. That, however, is not particularly helpful when a cramp strikes in the middle of a race.
Despite modern science, the true cause of exercise-induced cramps is not known.

Great, typographic ligatures are in place, nice. But still typographically  (LaTeX) composed PDF containing beautiful vector graphics thats the way I like it.

"The Weil conjectures did for mathematics what quantum theory and Einstein’s relativity did for physics, and what the discovery of DNA did for biology. Alas, we don’t hear much about this story or about the fascinating drama of ideas unfolding in modern math. Mathematics remains, in the words of poet Hans Magnus Enzensberger, “a blind spot in our culture—alien territory, in which only the elite, the initiated few have managed to entrench themselves.” And this despite the fact that math is so deeply woven in the fabric of our lives and is becoming, more and more, the engine of our power, wealth, and technological progress."

Auroras: What Causes Them?

In short words, auroras are colorful lights in the night time sky primarily appearing in Earth's polar regions. But what causes them? The culprit behind aurora is our own Sun and the solar plasma that is ejected during a magnetic event like a flare or a coronal mass ejection. This plasma travels outward along with the solar wind and when it encounters Earth's magnetic field, it travels down the field lines that connect at the poles. Atoms in the plasma interacts with atoms in Earth's upper atmosphere.

So, auroras are caused by collisions between fast-moving particles (electrons) from space and the oxygen and nitrogen gas in our atmosphere.
These electrons originate in the magnetosphere, the region of space controlled by Earth’s magnetic field.
As they rain into the atmosphere, the electrons impart energy to oxygen and nitrogen molecules, making them excited. When the molecules return to their normal state, they release photons, small bursts of energy in the form of light.

When billions of these collisions occur and enough photons are released, the oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere emit enough light for the eye to detect them. This ghostly glow can light up the night sky in a dance of colors. But since the aurora is much dimmer than sunlight, it cannot be seen from the ground in the daytime.
