A lot of human development stems from the leap from hunting and gathering to farming — how improved methods of growing food allowed us to concentrate on things other than hunting and gathering. Now scientists have linked that change in the way we ate to a change in our jaws, which in turn widened our vocabulary.Lots of languages have similar sounds in them — sounds that are easy for us humans to make, like the “plosives” p and b, and vowel sounds.
[audio mp3="http://www.corbettreport.com/mp3/2019-03-06%20Andrea%20Saltelli.mp3"][/audio]What is the crisis of science, and what does it tell us about the interface between science and policy? Is there a way to stop the debate over the crisis from becoming a political battling ground? And, if not, what does this mean for the future of science itself?
[audio mp3="https://www.corbettreport.com/mp3/episode353-lq.mp3"][/audio]In recent years, the public has gradually discovered that there is a crisis in science. But what is the problem? And how bad is it, really?
This week’s video is a perfect storm of weird and wonderful, all squashed into a very matter-of-fact science explainer. There’s a dose of odd science in the form of an almost mythical-sounding procedure. It has helped researchers identify a previously unknown structure of the human body, just when we thought we knew everything there was to know.This discovery, in turn, holds hope for the improved treatment of a widespread disease and an often fatal medical event.
Quant je monte ou descend une pente...Il y a une raison apparente et une raison non apparente. Quand je cesse de jouer et que je commence à tricher... Il y a une raison affichée et une raison cachée. Les faits sont ainsi faits : ils ont une raison d'apparaître et une raison de disparaître...
The US uses a lot of energy to keep itself cool — the same amount that the continent of Africa uses for everything. 75 percent of homes have at least one air-conditioned area, and then there’s all the industrial-level refrigeration that keeps food fresh, and industrial-scale data systems functioning.
Recent findings about the lineage of a mystifying green-blooded lizard, a toxin-resistant amphibian prevalent in the rainforests of New Guinea, may aid the development of new antiviral treatments. Famous for its glossy, emerald coating, the prasinohaema lizard is a type of skink, and bears an unsettling resemblance to the offspring of a snake and a frog. A group of scientists ventured into the jungles of New Guinea to harvest DNA samples from 52 species of skinks, including six green-blooded varieties.
Être... tu m'entends ? Je sais que tu es là... je compte jusqu'à trois pour que tu quittes cet endroit sur le champ... sans m'opposer la moindre résistance... pour toi comme pour moi, c'est une question de vie ou de mort.
You can't talk about research and education in Palestine without confronting occupation and apartheid.
La science ne se casse plus la tête, elle ne répare plus, elle remplace! Pour gagner "The Voice", elle peut vous changer vos cordes vocales...
Record-breaking snowfall in Pennsylvania earlier this week turns out to be another symptom of the earth heating up at record-breaking speeds, according to government scientists, while President Donald Trump thinks global warming could help eradicate the current cold snap.
On a panel at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, Peter Dale Scott expressed concern about the decay of the US commitment to global peace and collective security, as shown in the recent expansion of unilateral lethal US strikes against terrorists, sometimes with no legal authority.

We Are Change Alright, so I have one day before Defcon and BlackHat, so I decided on doing a new platform for sharing news that should be front page news but is not. Let me know what you think of it honestly and it gets a good response with good viewership we will do it everyday. Sources
Messieurs les jurés, Vous connaissez les faits dont je suis accusé : l’explosion de la rue des Bons-Enfants qui a tué cinq personnes et déterminé la mort d’une sixième, l’explosion du café Terminus, qui a tué une personne, déterminé la mort d’une seconde et blessé un certain nombre d’autres, enfin six coups de revolver tirés par moi sur ceux qui me poursuivaient après ce dernier attentat. Les débats vous ont montré que je me reconnais l’auteur responsable de ces actes.
Difficile d’écrire aussi raisonnablement qu’un Spinoza. Une philosophie agencée suivant l’ordre géométrique ; une Ethique par delà toute cacophonie lyrique. Pourtant ce chef d’oeuvre de la pensée occidentale a malheureusement peu inspiré les hommes, plutôt enclins à justifier leurs errances par la kyrielle de fables saturant notre Histoire depuis ses balbutiements littéraires.

La foule est conduite presque exclusivement par l’inconscient. Ses actes sont beaucoup plus sous l’influence de la moelle épinière que sous celle du cerveau. Les actes exécutés peuvent être parfaits quant à leur exécution, mais, le cerveau ne les dirigeant pas, l’individu agit suivant les hasards des excitations.
According to the Hewitson, et al.
This lamp was so constructed so as to place a piece of matter such as carbon, or a diamond or a ruby, in the center, and bombard this “button” with electrical energy that would bounce off the button onto the inside of the globe and bounce back onto the button. If this were a ruby, and Tesla specifically worked with rubies, then is exactly how a ruby laser is created. Tesla refers in INVENTIONS to a “pencil-thin” line of light that was created with this device.
What's wrong with mainstream experts?
Moreover, the verb "measured" is overly simplistic. The numbers result from computer algorithms working with satellite images. The NSDIC has a section of its documentation called "Error Sources."

Scientists will then be able to fine-tune Israel%u2019s seismological equipment to give advance warning of earthquakes. Measurements will also be taken in other countries, including Cyprus, Greece, France, and Germany. Israel will create a controlled explosion of 80 tons of explosive material, which will simulate the intensity of a tremor after an earthquake of Magnitude 3. Natural earthquakes of a similar intensity occur in the Middle East region about once a week, without the public feeling them.
"In the 1980s it was the personal computer - came out of the garage, changed the world. In the 1990s it was the web. The next big device to wander into our lives is robots,” he told the Sunday Times. "We may find we are absolutely dependent upon these electronic insects and that we don't even know we are dependent upon them until something breaks. "I sometimes wonder if the very rich can live, on average, 20 years longer than the poor. That's 20 more years of earning and saving. Think about wealth and power and the advantages that you pass on to your children."
A new study shows a direct link between standard childhood vaccination series, MMR, and autism-like symptoms in monkeys. The principal scientist involved in the study, Dr. Laura Hewitson of the University of Pittsburgh, presented the alarming conclusions as an abstract pending publication at the International Meeting for Autism Research. It has been presented at scientific conferences in both London and Seattle, USA.
There is much controversy over what happened that day, not only between those who support and those who dispute the official explanation but also among various groups within the %u201C9/11 truth movement%u201D. The basic purpose of this website is to examine and present soundly based scientific evidence that the buildings were brought down by %u201Ccontrolled demolition%u201D using explosives.
These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology -- informally known as the United States' Science Czar. In a book Holdren co-authored in 1977, the man now firmly in control of science policy in this country wrote that:

With solar panels along its 60ft wingspan, the Zephyr promises to revolutionise military intelligence. The unmanned aircraft stores power from the sun in its batteries, allowing it to continue through the night and, potentially, stay in the air for months at a time. Unlike conventional spy planes, which need regular refuelling and so make relatively short flights, it will give commanders an unbroken picture of the battlefield.
Just when you thought it was safe to assume that everyone had pretty much accepted climate change and moved on, here comes rogue NBC 4 chief meteorologist Jym Ganahl to blow your freaking mind. “Just wait 5 or 10 years, and it will be very obvious. They’ll have egg on their faces,” Ganahl said this week of global warming advocates.
