Laurie Wolfe says that after she began transitioning, she stopped singing. But now, she's finding through the chorus group that "when you can sing with other trans people and you can share that with other people, it’s a beautiful song."
The all-trans chorus was founded to help people learn to use their changing voices in a safe space.

A doctor warns you shouldn't let Pixar's colorful cartoon fool you -- specific regions of the brain do not house just one emotion.

You probably figured emotions are a little more complicated, right?

How do we get real about racism in the U.S.?

Computers were never supposed to be able to beat the best chess player in the world, but they've continued to improve.

“They look at every possible move,” chess master Dana Mackenzie says. “And eventually, at some point, that brute force calculation strength starts to turn into something that looks like human creativity.”
Chess playing computers have only improved since Deep Blue beat Garry Kasparov in 1997. Today, a human player doesn't stand a chance against a computer. But while researching a new strategy, chess master Dana Mackenzie learned to view the computer not as a rival, but as a partner.

Do you think Boston's hip-hop scene suffers from a lack of cohesive identity?

The Middle East Restaurant and Nightclub's festival will feature 16 acts from artists with Boston ties.

"My service to Boston-area communities, while rewarding, nevertheless hangs by a tenuous thread, its vulnerability exposed by an overzealous policeman who is either patently dishonest or unable to distinguish one black citizen from another." 
What the officer saw when he thought he saw me, and what that costs.

The author found that "bad behavior" among sports fans was essentially universal -- it's seen in the most elite sports and at the amateur level. 
Put a group of people together. Make them overpay for tickets. Add booze. Then give them teams to root for. The result can be a disorderly collection of people -- also known as fans. In her new book "Fanaticus," ESPN producer Justine Gubar explores the phenomenon of fandom around the world.

Teletubbies was billed as an educational show for kids, but it didn’t charm Susan Linn. In fact, it helped transform her from a worried parent to an outright activist.
Are kids at danger from the influence of corporate marketers when they watch TV or use apps?

"Unlike private individuals and associations, governments don’t have rights: They exercise power," writes Wendy Kaminer. And while hoisting a Confederate flag on state property isn’t an illegal use of power, it is a politically abusive one."
Private citizens have the right to fly it. A state government should not.
