Encouraging women to pursue advanced education creates a dysgenic fertility situation in the society, whereby the most successful women have the fewest children. (It's the best predictor of women's fecundity.) According to evolutionary theory, that causes all the inheritable traits favorable to success to be reduced in the gene pool with each generation. It's quite a price for the future to pay so modern women can perform traditionally male duties.

The world’s most powerful particle accelerator, last seen discovering the Higgs boson, switches back on after a two-year hiatus nearly twice as powerful as before. Science reporter Ivan Semeniuk charts its new push into the unknown

Watch Perimeter Institute's Water Stress: Seeking Solutions in the Unusual Properties of Water on Livestream.com. Water is ubiquitous, but the availability of fresh water is limited. Today, one in six people is under “water stress,” meaning that they have no access to clean water. It is one of the many paradoxes of water. This essential liquid, which in many ways is so commonplace, is also very peculiar. Water behaves differently than other mater...
