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.

What's more, the future-looking question of whether we could someday live in a simulation circles back to a very old question, contemplated by philosophers from Zhuang Zhou to Descartes to the Wachowski siblings [in The Matrix]: How would we know if we were already living in a simulation?

Tarter offers a different perspective. On the topic of the potential risks of an extraterrestrial visit, she referred to research done by Harvard psychology professor, Steven Pinker.

Pinker’s work suggests that humankind is getting kinder and gentler as we evolve. He has noted that “Today we may be living in the most peaceable era in our species’ existence.”

Deep Blue Something - Breakfast At Tiffany's

"Breakfast at Tiffany's" is sung from the point of view of a man who is on the verge of breaking up with his girlfriend on the basis that the two have nothing in common. Desperate to find something, the man brings up the Audrey Hepburn film Breakfast at Tiffany's, and his girlfriend recalls that they "both kinda liked it." He argues that this should serve as enough motivation for them to work out their problems based on the notion that love will always find a way to make things work.

The film Roman Holiday inspired the lyrics of the song, but songwriter Todd Pipes thought that one of Hepburn's other films would make a better song title.

The FAO Food Price Index fell by 1.9% in January as prices of all the commodities it tracks fell, driven mainly by ample agricultural supply conditions, a slowing global economy, and the strengthening of the US dollar: http://bit.ly/1nRc0o0

They are good sources of plant protein.  I read that plant protein helps you maintain your muscles while animal protein can help build muscles.
