We are skeptics who have devoted much of our careers to practicing and promoting scientific skepticism. We ask that journalists use more care when reporting on those who reject climate science, and hold to the principles of truth in labeling. Please stop using the word “skeptic” to describe deniers.
Public discussion of scientific topics such as global warming is confused by misuse of the term skeptic.

The power of compound interest.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Instead, what might matter a lot is that wealthier children develop a tendency to save money. Or, the researchers say, it could be even simpler: Richer parents gift their children with more money
Even when they’re adopted, the children of the wealthy grow up to be just as well-off as their parents.

“An idea, however great its potential, is of no use unless somehow there is brought to it a spark of faith, a sense of urgency, and a spirit of cooperation. This Agency is the creation of this spark, this sense, this spirit on the part of the nations of the world.”

#Onthisdayinhistory‬ in 1957, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower spoke these words moments after ratifying the #IAEA 's Statute, bringing it into force.

The Statute is the IAEA’s founding document that outlines the Agency’s objectives and functions, and underpins its work toward bringing the benefits of peaceful #nuclear  technology to all parts of the globe and preventing the spread of nuclear weapons.

"There are other companies who have talked about new types of memory technology, but this is about being able to manufacture the stuff - that's why they are making such a big deal out of it," says Bob O'Donnell, from the consultancy Technalysis.

If all goes to plan, the first products to feature 3D XPoint (pronounced cross-point) will go on sale next year. Its price has yet to be announced.
A new kind of computer memory that is up to 1,000 times faster than flash storage is to go on sale in 2016, helping scientists and games developers alike.

The Latvian capital Riga was named European Capital of Culture for 2014, but it gave birth to one of its greatest cultural exports in 1976. It was home to Elīna Garanča, who was born into a musical family and entered the Latvian Academy of Music at the age of 20. She was soon on the way to becoming one of the world’s most outstanding mezzo sopranos.
