How much psychology do you know?  Take one of Pinker's  exams. 
The Harvard professor culled exam questions from his course “Psychological Science.” Test your knowledge.

Did you know that wealthy foreign nationals can essentially buy U.S. citizenship?  I'm not sure how I feel about that.

What do you think?  Invasion of privacy? or is it worth it to save lives? 
The Medicare pilot program aims to use vast volumes of government data to direct assistance to potentially vulnerable people, but it has raised privacy concerns.

Krugman makes it clear.  Again.
At the heart of the Cliven Bundy standoff was a perversion of the concept of freedom.

Did election rigging cost Kantor his Senate Seat?

We can only speculate about the possibility of computerized rigging in the Virginia Republican primary - or in any election - but it would be insane not to embrace the truly overwhelming evidence that our system of voting is flawed and ripe for fraud and abuse by anyone with access..

because we’re raised to know it’s safer to give a fake phone number than to directly reject an aggressive guy.
because we’re raised to know that evasion or rejection can be met with violence.
because women are still threatened and punished for rejecting advances.
because (669) UGH-ASIF, WTF-DUDE, and MAJR-SHADE were taken.
because why give any old fake number, when you can have bell hooks screen your calls?
so next time, just give out this number: (669) 221-6251

Fascinating article about a particular melding of science and art.
 
Wood decay fungi stake out their living space by pigmenting wood, a process called spalting. As a woodworker, Sara C. Robinson became fascinated with developing new colors and designs in wood using fungi, and her artwork led into scientific research. Read about her journey from artist to scientist, and how her work fits into the larger picture of woodworking history and wood science. http://ow.ly/w53Ix #sciart #art   #science   #woodwork   #fungus

Had dinner with a friend on March 7, 2013. Started with an excellent Cupcake prosecco while I waited for my friend. We both ordered caesar salad to start, and the server was very good about her special requests for no cheese or croutons. The salad was fine, but mine seemed to be very light on the dressing. My friend had the salmon which she really enjoyed. I had the beef short ribs which were very tender and flavorful, but between the bones and the high volume of fat, I got very little meat. Coffee after the meal was very good. I also had an excellent apple pie with walnut topping. The most positive part of the experience for both of us was the lack of noise. I didn't pay that much attention to the decor, but I really appreciated the tablecloths and carpets and draperies because they help to keep the noise level down. It was definitely worth going back.

1/25/2013 Noise starts around 7 pm, so my friend and I went at 5 pm when the noise level was not so bad. I started with an excellent sour cherry cocktail -- a good balance between tart and sweet -- and my friend had an excellent chardonnay from Coeur d'Alene. Service was good. And our meals were very good. There were plenty of choices for a person who can't eat wheat. We started with excellent caesar salad. I had the crab cakes with remoulade sauce, and my friend had the black cod special. The vegetables were perfectly cooked, but I would have welcomed more of them.
