The medical advances we seek to combat Ebola depend upon both the knowledgeable innovations of current scientists and insights from past efforts to overcome pandemics. John Barry, was appointed to the federal government’s Infectious Disease Board of Experts after he wrote this book. "The Great Influenza" begins with a scientific explanation of how viruses like Ebola or Influenza attack the body. The book follows with a well-documented account of how science, civic leaders and populations responded to a pandemic in modern times. Our current advantage of worldwide information-sharing technology and a vast database of historical and scientific information must be used to its fullest potential. I hope this piece of history offers some insights.

Greetings to all members from myself, Rick Coram. I am a science lover which subjects annex mathematics and physics... and even, to my mind, philosophy, art, music and geology; just mentioning a few.

Scientists have long marveled at the squid’s ability to sense the color of its surroundings, and then instantaneously change its own skin coloring in order to blend in. To that end, a number of projects have attempted to create man-made materials that are…

According to dr. Trivers the sex that is going to make the choice in the sexual selection is going to be the one that invests more. Imagine a business with an investor and several people interested in participating in the business as employees and not partners. The choice of course is going to be made by the one who spends the money. As nasty as it may seems evolution works this way. It is about the benefits and the costs of decision making of every individual. Evolution doesn’t care about ethical rules. So, in humans a fertilisation costs to a female around 60,000 calories, a change in the body, several psychological implications and many other complications. To men it costs sometimes just 5 minutes and 2digit calories. At the same time human females can only have one birth per year when males can create maybe 5 or who knows how many per day (Coolidge Effect). Remember in evolution what matters most is how many healthy and fertile descendants an individual can create.

Hello to all, here's my new blog post discussing talent. I hope you'll enjoy

"This finding is dramatic! There was a huge difference in the effectiveness of the students independently of their capabilities. Instead according to their MINDSET. Because the fixed mindset students weren’t seeing the test only as a measurement of their intelligence at that time. As well, for them it was a measure of their intelligence in the future… They had identified intelligence as a pure talent. And you know where all this lead them? To not try things in the fear of failure and as a result a proof of their inabilities. Whereas a person with a growth mindset gains from every activity independently of each outcome. Knowing that the chase of success goes hand in hand with plenty of failures."
