Bill Nye, Nick Graham Celebrate Science With New Tie Collection

Next year will be a big one for science — July 20 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing — and Nick Graham is all set to pounce.
For the past three years, the designer has had a collaboration with Bill Nye the Science Guy for a collection of bow ties. And when the latest iteration makes its appearance, the ties will be part of what Graham said will be “a big, happy mashup of space.”
In a preview at his New York studio Thursday, Graham and Nye showed off the latest looks, which include the first moonbeam print, planets, various weather symbols and even an astronaut in a space suit with an American flag.
“They’re all science-themed,” Nye said. “We’re trying to get people excited about science.”
He’s also trying to get people excited about the launch of the paperback version of his book “Everything All At Once,” which is intended to offer up some life lessons to help people “think like a science guy, solve any problem and make a better world.”

Roxanne Mesquida, Paz Vega Talk Science Fiction at Elie Saab

STRANGE ENCOUNTERS: The leading ladies sitting front row at Elie Saab may have been dolled up for the occasion, but their latest acting jobs are of a more alien kind. Roxanne Mesquida said she had lots of fun shooting the Steven Soderbergh-produced series “Now Apocalypse,” due out in April.
“It’s about aliens.…I play an astro-biological theorist who is French and not very nice and very promiscuous,” said the actress, in town for her next movie project under first-time director Arnaud Valois. “It was very hard for me to learn all the specific technical terms,” she laughed.
Paz Vega’s latest project is of a similar genre. The Spanish actress stars in the second season of the Netflix series “The OA.” She was keeping mum about the details, but said, “It’s like science fiction and metaphysics, a bit like ‘Stranger Things’ but for adults. It’s very good.”
Other guests at the show included Marina Hands, Béatrice Martin aka Coeur de Pirate, Larsen Thompson and Gaia Weiss.

Hillary Clinton Applauds March For Science

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton praised the thousands of demonstrators who protested against President Donald Trump’s anti-science agenda on Saturday and urged people to “protect the Earth and all its beauty.”

“It is Earth Day, and we are marching on behalf of science,” Clinton said to applause during a surprise appearance at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on Saturday evening. “Part of science is understanding the intricate relationships we share with those on this planet.” 

Saturday’s nationwide March for Science, coinciding with Earth Day, came just three months after the massive Women’s March on Jan. 21, the day after Trump’s inauguration.

Earlier on Saturday, Clinton affirmed her support for the marches, tweeting “March on!”

Clinton attended the festival as an unannounced panelist at the premiere of “The Protectors: Walk in the Rangers’ Shoes,” a virtual reality documentary about elephant poaching that was co-created by Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow.

The film, which National Geographic will release online next month, documents park rangers in the Congo combating the environmental crisis caused by elephant poaching, an issue Clinton worked on as secretary of state.

“It became clear to everyone that this was not just a terrible crisis when it came to the elephant population; it was a trade, a trafficking that was funding a lot of bad folks, a lot of bad actors,” Clinton said. “It was being used to take ivory and sell it in order to buy more weapons, and support the kind of terroristic activity that these and other groups were engaged in.”

Clinton has kept a relatively low profile since November’s election, but has attended plays and other cultural events in New York and spoken at events related to issues she champions, such as LGBTQ rights and women’s rights.

The former secretary of state’s appearance at the festival was kept tightly under wraps. Bigelow, who moderated the panel, said even she didn’t know that Clinton would be there.

“I had nothing to do with her being here,” Bigelow told The Wrap. “This was all the festival’s doing. But I know she’s been doing great work in this field for years, and she’s a woman of extraordinary power.”

The Science of Awe And Why It Matters At Work

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

Awe has been getting increased press lately. Along with mindfulness and compassion,awe is now the subject of scientific research at the University of California, Berkeley, and other leading institutions around the world. Dacher Keltner, a psychologist at UC Berkeley, has shown that awe leads to greater humility, curiosity, innovation, happiness, and a desire to contribute to the world. Which makes it a pretty natural fit for the workplace—who doesn’t want employees and managers running the show with greater innovation and better working relationships?

Awe is often described as a heightened awareness of beauty and mystery, and it’s most commonly induced when we are among natural wonders or with inspiring leaders. Most of the research on awe has focused on taking people out into nature and documenting the consequent reduction of their stress levels and increase in creativity. But what about the awe we feel when in the presence of an incredibly designed building or museum or cathedral? Why aren’t we trying to transfer that experience to our work lives? Design has a role to play in this, and IDEO design director, Ingrid Fetell Lee, is currently working on a related topic for her upcoming book, The Aesthetics of Joy.

“My real focus is emotion,” says Lee. “I’ve been researching design and joy, and I look at the way the built environment affects our well-being.”

Lee says that from a practical perspective, when thinking about cultivating more awe at work, aspects such as light, colors, and textures need to be taken into consideration.“High ceilings, vertical dimensions, big spaces—these all create a shift in perspective,” says Lee. “You understand your own scale in a different way. For awe, vastness is key.”

In most office buildings, the most awe-inspiring space is the lobby, devoted to visitors and those in transit—which is short-sighted. The people who would benefit most from awe—and cause the company to benefit too—are the very people who work there.

For today’s modern work cultures, where temperament awareness is on the rise and where creativity and innovation are often highly valued, Lee says that “having a space for awe to break you out of your execution-oriented mindset could be an asset.” Since we have moved beyond a factory mindset when it comes to work, designers are no longer confined to thinking about maximum productivity. Their thinking can now also include ways to arrive at creative insights—this is where awe can play a role.

“Awe is good for perspective-shifting,” says Lee.

Keltner says that “relying upon aesthetic principles is going to make people more curious and better at scientific reasoning.” “Awe triggers a sense of wonder,” he adds.

The challenge, says Keltner, is how to build mini “awe interventions” throughout the day in order to sustain the shift in perspective. He and his colleagues at the Greater Good Science Center will soon begin researching whether awe walks benefit the brains of older people. Awe walks also could benefit CEOs, executives, and employees across the board, especially if the workplace setting is not conducive to awe. Indeed, integrating nature into building design has started to take hold, especially with Silicon Valley’s popular vertical gardens, known as “living walls.”

Other potential awe interventions include:

  • Awe journaling while at work—a 5-minute break during lunch to meditate on what’s just outside your window or across your building. This exercise could be related to nature or people. It’s a way to document shifts in perspective and feel awe more often in daily life.
  • Sharing awe experiences in group settings, which Keltner has tried with great success. Get a few co-workers together during lunch or after work to share their experiences of awe. This could be made more relevant or workplace appropriate if the focus is on inspiring leaders who have induced awe amongst the group.
  • Reading about awe-filled experiences as a way to vicariously experience awe. Set two daily reminders to browse stories of awe online to get a quick dose while at work.Sidetracked Magazine is a good place to start.  
  • Taking a more visual route to the emotion of awe. While on break or on the subway, take time to check out awe-inducing videos on your phone. Jason Silva’s Shots of Awe is a great place to start.

For Keltner, nature is key, and it’s where most of his research has taken place. Climbing and backpacking have helped with his own anxiety.

For me, my daily walks in nature or right in my own neighborhood are sources of awe. Observing the flowers, trees, clouds, and bicyclists puts me in a state of calm reflection, and I notice more of the perspective-shifting characteristics and occurrences all around me. I find the same with travel. Being on a long flight or exploring somewhere new puts me in “observer mode,” and I find I’m more receptive to the awe that presents itself everywhere.

When I feel the need for a heightened level of inspiration—another kind of awe—I usually dive into my curiosity of the moment by learning everything I can. That usually means reading up on the latest science, psychology, and neurodiversity research.

Readers, what’s your go-to source of awe?

Riveted: The Science of Why Jokes Make Us Laugh, Movies Make Us Cry, and Religion Makes Us Feel One with the Universe


Why do some things pass under the radar of our attention, but other things capture our interest? Why do some religions catch on and others fade away? What makes a story, a movie, or a book riveting? Why do some people keep watching the news even though it makes them anxious?The past 20 years have seen a remarkable flourishing of scientific research into exactly these kinds of questions. Professor Jim Davies’ fascinating and highly accessible book, Riveted, reveals the evolutionary underpinnings of why we find things compelling, from art to religion and from sports to superstition. Compelling things fit our minds like keys in the ignition, turning us on and keeping us running, and yet we are often unaware of what makes these “keys” fit. What we like and don’t like is almost always determined by subconscious forces, and when we try to consciously predict our own preferences we’re often wrong. In one study of speed dating, people were asked what kinds of partners they found attractive. When the results came back, the participants’ answers before the exercise had no correlation with who they actually found attractive in person! We are beginning to understand just how much the brain makes our decisions for us: we are rewarded with a rush of pleasure when we detect patterns, as the brain thinks we’ve discovered something significant; the mind urges us to linger on the news channel or rubberneck an accident in case it might pick up important survival information; it even pushes us to pick up People magazine in order to find out about changes in the social structure. Drawing on work from philosophy, anthropology, religious studies, psychology, economics, computer science, and biology, Davies offers a comprehensive explanation to show that in spite of the differences between the many things that we find compelling, they have similar effects on our minds and brains.

A riveting look at the birth of a new science.” -Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive When he was eight years old, Dan Hurley was labeled a “slow learner” because he still couldn’t read. Three years later, he had become a straight A student. Until thepublication of a major study in 2008, psychologists believed that intelligence is fixed at birth, that IQ is like a number tattooed on the soul. The new study showed that people can increase their “fluid” intelligence through training. Hurley, who grew up to become an award-winning science journalist, first explored the topic in The New York Times Magazine. In Smarter, he digs deeper by meeting with the field’s leading researchers-and becoming a human guinea pig. After just three months of playing computer brain-training games, joining a boot-camp exercise program, learning to play the Renaissance lute, practicing mindfulness meditation and and even getting his brain zapped in the name of science, Hurley improved his fluid intelligence

Herbert George “H.G.” Wells was an English author, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary, even writing text books and rules for war games. Together with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback, Wells has been referred to as “The Father of Science Fiction”. His most notable science fiction works include, The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man and The Island of Doctor Moreau. Most of his novels had nothing to do with science fiction. Some described lower-middle class life (Kipps; The History of Mr Polly), leading him to be touted as a worthy successor to Charles Dickens, but Wells described a range of social strata and even attempted, in Tono-Bungay (1909), a diagnosis of English society as a whole.

Matter, Ether and Motion – The Factors and Relations of Physical Science

Matter, Ether and Motion – The Factors and Relations of Physical Science


In the past fifty years the advance in physical knowledge has not only been rapid, but it has been revolutionary. The fundamental principles of natural philosophy that were applied by Sir Isaac Newton and others to masses of visible magnitude have been applied to molecules; and it has thus been discovered that all kinds of phenomena are subject to the same mechanical laws. It was thought before that physics embraced several distinct provinces of knowledge which were not necessarily related to each other, such as mechanics, heat, & electricity. Such terms as imponderable matter, latent heat, electric fluid, forces of nature, and others in common use in text-books and elsewhere, served to maintain the distinctions; and even to-day some of these obsolete physical agencies are to be met in books and places where one would hope not to find them. As all physical phenomena are reducible to the principles of mechanics, atoms and molecules are subject to them as much as masses of visible magnitude; and it has become apparent that however different one phenomenon is from another, the factors of both are the same-matter, ether, and motion; so that all the so-called forces of nature, considered as objective things controlling phenomena, are seen to have no existence; that all phenomena are reducible to nothing more mysterious than a push or a pull. Some say that science is simply classified knowledge. To the author it is more than that, it is a consistent body of knowledge; and a true explanation of any phenomenon cannot be inconsistent with the best established body of knowledge we have. If physical factors are fundamental, then theorizers must square their theories to them. One may often hear the question asked, What is electricity? But a similar question as to the nature of heat or light or chemism is just as pertinent, although there chances now to be less popular interest in these than in the former; not, however, because they are in themselves better understood, or l

Zapotec Science

Zapotec Science


Zapotec farmers in the northern sierra of Oaxaca, Mexico, are highly successful in providing their families with abundant, nutritious food in an ecologically sustainable fashion, although the premises that guide their agricultural practices would be considered erroneous by the standards of most agronomists and botanists in the United States and Europe. In this book, Roberto González convincingly argues that in fact Zapotec agricultural and dietary theories and practices constitute a valid local science, which has had a reciprocally beneficial relationship with European and United States farming and food systems since the sixteenth century. González bases his analysis upon direct participant observation in the farms and fields of a Zapotec village. By using the ethnographic fieldwork approach, he is able to describe and analyze the rich meanings that campesino families attach to their crops, lands, and animals. González also reviews the history of maize, sugarcane, and coffee cultivation in the Zapotec region to show how campesino farmers have intelligently and scientifically adapted their farming practices to local conditions over the course of centuries. By setting his ethnographic study of the Talea de Castro community within a historical world systems perspective, he also skillfully weighs the local impact of national and global currents ranging from Spanish colonialism to the 1910 Mexican Revolution to NAFTA. At the same time, he shows how, at the turn of the twenty-first century, the sustainable practices of “traditional” subsistence agriculture are beginning to replace the failed, unsustainable techniques of modern industrial farming in some parts of the United States and Europe.

Disney, Brain Science and Understanding Emotional Intelligence

I never thought seeing a kid’s movie would become the inspiration for a new blog on emotional intelligence. Seeing Inside Out, the new movie from Disney/Pixar got me thinking about how we think.

2015-07-08-1436380355-6095300-bestinsideout.jpg

Almost the entire animated movie takes place inside the brain of a young girl named Riley. We watch her grow up from a small baby to age eleven through the eyes of five characters named Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust who are situated INSIDE her brain, hence the title Inside Out. (Interestingly, and with no explanation, the characters Anger and Fear are male, while Joy, Sadness and Disgust are female.) Through the first act of the movie, Joy is running the show. But something happens when Riley turns eleven that lets the other characters take over the controls of her life for a while. It’s kind of like when one of the lesser characters on Star Trek takes over the controls of the Starship Enterprise and everything seems to just run amuck.

This film combines elements of brain science, emotional intelligence and science fiction. It focuses on the work of former UC Berkeley Professor, Paul Ekman who spent almost his entire career studying facial expressions. Ekman was a pioneer in studying the emotional life of the brain. Long before University of Wisconsin researcher Richard Davidson came along and started using an MRI machine to map emotional regions of the brain, Ekman was studying these emotions on people’s faces.

In Ekman’s day there were no instruments to peer inside the brain, so, in order to study emotions, he had to work with facial expressions. Just like psychologists Albert Ellis and Aaron Beck who co-created Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and even BF Skinner who raised the study of Behaviorism to new heights, this was the era where the mind was literally considered a black box. You could look at what went IN the black box and you could observe what came OUT (like Pavlov’s Dog: ringing a bell would be an input and seeing him salivate would be an output) but you could never presume to KNOW what actually went on INSIDE the black box.

By studying facial expressions, Ekman got as close as anyone ever could to scientifically studying the emotional life of the brain in that era. A good video that describes his work can be found on YouTube. He went around the world, as far as Papua New Guinea, to see if there were emotions on people’s faces that the whole world recognized. He cataloged six universal emotions including one that Disney chose not feature inside Riley’s brain: surprise. According to Roger Dooley’s article in Forbes, it was eliminated because the emotion was too close to fear.

2015-07-08-1436380732-8377245-surprise.jpg

In his research, Ekman determined that we all have the capability to recognize emotions in a fleeting glance. The funny thing is, you might not even consciously KNOW when you see fleeting emotions which he called micro-expressions, but your unconscious mind reads them and makes adjustments in your behavior, sometimes without you even realizing it. I’ve noticed this happens, for example, when I start to mention something political with someone I don’t know that well. Now that I know about micro-expressions, I often read something on the other person’s face – quite quickly – that basically tells to me “don’t go there,” and I’ll immediately change the subject. Ekman has even used these micro-expressions as a sort of a lie detector test. The Transportation Security Administration is testing Ekman’s theories to assist in screening airline passengers thought to be suspicious, according to this article in Fast Company.

I first learned about Paul Ekman and micro-expressions when I did a series of films on emotional intelligence with Dan Goleman. During the production of the film, we videotaped the six emotions on the faces of a variety of actors. Good actors, by the way, are the only ones who can fool the lie-detectors because they create the emotions inside themselves, first, and the face simply reveals – on the outside – what’s going on inside their bodies! You can preview the whole video at this link, and you’ll observe that even in an extreme close up of JUST the actor’s eyes, you can still read their emotions perfectly in less than half a second.

In an interview with Goleman on a CD entitled Knowing Our Emotions Improving Our World, Ekman talks about spending several days with the Dalai Lama, and studying his emotions through his facial expressions. “I never met a person as authentic as the Dalai Lama. The person you see on the outside is the exact same person you get to know on the inside.” He referred to this phenomenon as “transparency”. Ekman also says, “I believe I can tell when I meet a person who has a long-term meditation practice simply by their demeanor.” This remark leads to a whole different discussion about how meditation changes the brain which we will cover in an upcoming blog.

I attended the American Journal of Health Promotion conference in the early spring and remember meeting a young woman there who just started working in the wellness field. I was telling her about Ekman, who she had never heard of. I confidently said, “Well, now that I’ve told you about him, you’ll probably hear his name mentioned several times in the next few days”. In the very next keynote presentation, the speaker was Dr. Barbara Frederickson, the University of North Carolina researcher who studies happiness and positivity. She’s the one who famously says we need three positives for every one negative in order to be happy. In her keynote she mentioned how much her work was influenced by Ekman’s.

2015-07-08-1436381248-4217527-trainofthought.jpg

The next day I was listening to the radio and Disney announced that one of the advisors on its new, upcoming PIXAR film, was none other than Paul Ekman. I was intrigued and couldn’t wait to see the film. Now that I’ve finally seen it, I must say, there were many, many clever concepts in INSIDE OUT, like the “train of thought” which is actually a fantasy train with odd station stops, running continuously (while she is awake) inside Riley’s mind. There was the dangerous area in her prefrontal cortex where abstract thought takes place, where Joy and Sadness start to morph into Picasso-inspired looking characters and almost disappear into lines and shapes.

Even the way short term memory is consolidated into long term memory when Riley sleeps is quite accurate and cleverly done. Another brilliant idea is the way the movie depicts the brain science involved in creating Riley’s dreams. Every night, a Hollywood Studio comes to life inside her brain when she starts to dream. We literally get a back stage look at what’s involved in the “production” of dreams. Hollywood studios are often called: “dream factories” and in this movie it actually happens.

There’s a quirky pink elephant and a couple of rambunctious janitors who work and/or wander through the long term memory vaults of Riley’s brain. The elephant is one of Riley’s early childhood imaginary friends who is fading fast as she heads towards puberty. The two janitors vacuum up old outdated memories (like the Pink elephant) from the memory bank and occasionally play tricks on Riley, like repeating an old song from a bubble gum commercial that she can’t get out of her head.

The best moments of the film come when we see that everyone has these same five emotional characters running their brains. How they act differently in every person’s brain (like her parents) and exactly which character seems to be running the show, is fun to watch and interesting to see. I can’t say that I liked this film as much as the early Pixar films like Toy Story and A Bug’s Life, and more recently, UP, but from a brain science and an emotional intelligence perspective, it was a tour de force, particularly at the end when we see the important role that SADNESS plays in creating the WHOLE person that we truly are.

Science Shows Wearing High Heels Makes Women Stronger (and Weaker)

High heels have been found to make women both stronger and weaker according to a new study published in The International Journal of Clinical Practice. The subjects, women studying to become flight attendants in South Korea, had heels as part of their classroom uniform, a decision made since the job they were training for would also require similar footwear. Scientists found that those enrolled in their second and third years of the program showed greater muscle strength in the area surrounding the ankle than the incoming freshmen. But oddly, the upward trend stopped abruptly when the women in their senior year of the program were examined.

04-bright-yellow-high-heels-plaid-skirt-street-style

Even though those were the women who had logged the most hours in their heels, they showed weakening of the same muscles that were becoming stronger in the sophomore and junior classmates. Senior, junior, and sophomore students were all found to have worse balance than the newbies.

The lead in the study, Hanseo University exercise physiology professor Jee Yong-Seok, explained that the ratio of strength between areas on the sides of the ankle to that in the front and the back was off in the heel-wearing women. Per The New York Times, that messes with stability and balance and leads to weakening of the same muscles that were initially becoming stronger due to the heels. In turn, ankle issues can cause injuries stemming from other muscle groups in the legs, including your hamstrings.

Happily for stiletto-lovers, the docs the Times chatted to didn’t suggest abandoning heels. Rather, they said to incorporate basic exercises like calf raises and heel drops (stand on the back edge of a stair and slowly let your heel lower dip down as far as it can). If you wear heels at the office, there’s also a benefit to be gained from slipping them off when you’re sitting at your desk since the position feet are put in while wearing a pair can affect the muscles, even when immobile.

The attention paid to Bryce Dallas Howard’s Jurassic World high-heel running scenes makes the study especially interesting. Though, to be fair, Howard said she prepped for all her action with a lot of calf raises.

Science Explains How Your Spouse’s Personality Affects Your Career

Who you marry doesn’t affect just your happiness at home — your spouse can also play a major role in your career prosperity, according to new research from Washington University in St. Louis. This study, published in Psychological Science, discovered that it’s not only your personality that matters when it comes to achievement. Your spouse’s personality also affects your workplace success.

The five-year study examined 5,000 married people who ranged in age from 19 to 89. Approximately 75 percent of the sample included homes where both spouses worked. Researchers administered a series of psychological tests to assess participant’s scores in five broad areas of personality — openness, extraversion, agreeableness, neuroticism, and conscientiousness.

They also tracked on-the-job performance of working spouses by using annual surveys designed to measure occupational success. Each worker provided self-reports related to job satisfaction, salary increases, and the likelihood of being promoted.

While other studies have shown it’s helpful to have a spouse who ranks high in agreeableness, this study shows that workers with the most occupational success had spouses who scored high for conscientiousness in the personality assessments. Conscientiousness is characterized by a tendency to be organized and dependable. Conscientious people also show self-discipline, behave dutifully, strive for achievement, and prefer planned activities over spontaneous events.

Three Ways a Conscientious Spouse Contributes to Success

The study showed that a conscientious spouse promoted career success regardless of whether both spouses worked. It also concluded that a conscientious spouse was equally important for both male and female working spouses. The researchers discovered that a conscientious person is likely to support a spouse’s career in three pivotal ways:

1. Completing day-to-day tasks. The conscientious spouse is likely to do household chores, pay bills, shop for groceries, and care for children. This can free up the working spouse to focus on work outside the home.

2. Role modeling healthy skills. The working spouse may pick up on some of those good habits — like behaving diligently and reliably — which can boost career success.

3. Keeping the working spouse’s personal life running smoothly. The conscientious spouse reduces overall stress and promotes a healthy work-life balance which can assist the working spouse in career advancement.

What Can We Learn from the Study?

Spouses who can truly help advance your career go beyond simply encouraging you to ask for that raise or apply for that new job. Instead, career success relies heavily on having a spouse who keeps life outside of work operating smoothly for the long haul.

If you’re not yet married — and you’re ambitious about your career endeavors — a potential mate’s conscientiousness may be worth considering. If you’re already married and you’re concerned that your spouse’s personality isn’t exactly advancing your professional life, don’t run out and get a divorce with the hope of benefiting your career. Most of the research shows the stress of divorce causes decreased productivity for about five years.

Perhaps the most important takeaway from the study is that we should develop an awareness of how our own personalities affect our partners. Simply being aware of the characteristics and behaviors that may help — as well as hinder — one another can go a long way to working together as a team to reach your goals.

Science Reveals The Laziest Way To Better Your Mood And Maybe Your Relationship

Some people consider daydreaming a waste of time, but a new study has found that daydreaming about your significant other can boost your mood. It might even strengthen your relationship.

Fantasizing about your partner can increase feelings of love and connection toward that person, according to the U.K. study recently published in the journal Consciousness and Cognition.

“We are often reminded of the benefits of being present and living ‘in the moment,'” Dr. Giulia Poerio, a psychologist at the University of Sheffield and the study’s lead author, told The Huffington Post. “Our study shows that daydreaming about close others might be an effective way to make yourself feel better by mentally simulating contact with loved ones when it is not available in reality,” she added.

The researchers randomly sent text messages throughout the day to 101 study participants — both women and men, with an average age of 22. They were asked what they were daydreaming about at that moment and how they felt before and after their reverie.

The study found that daydreams unrelated to the person’s significant other didn’t seem to have any effect on the person’s mood. But after daydreaming about their partners, participants who described their relationships as satisfying reported an elevated mood and a surge in feelings of love and connection. The better the relationship, the more enjoyment was derived from the daydreams.

Researchers concluded that daydreaming may serve as a temporary substitute for social interaction when we can’t be with our loved ones.

“Daydreaming about close others may be an effective strategy to overcome negative social feelings in daily life, such as when feeling lonely or when separated from loved ones,” Poerio said. “It’s well established that interactions with loved ones can increase feelings of well-being, but our results suggest that the emotional benefit of others can also occur from our imagination.”

How do you define science? And whose theories are the right ones? Take a humorous and intriguing journey through the unchartered territory of scientific squabbles with scientist Mike McRae, Australia’s next-gen Dr Karl, as he reveals arguments and accusations about who is right and who is wrong in the world of science. Over time, science has come to permeate our everyday existence: advertisements for beauty products use words that sound scientific, movie makers blur the lines between science and science fiction, and people spend billions and risk their health on bogus medical treatments. Without knowing it, we have accepted science as a social practice to explain and understand the world around us. Charting the history of science and our trust and blind faith in ‘science’, Mike McRae boldly examines the boundaries of what constitutes science and what doesn’t. In an engaging and straightforward way, McRae explains how and why science developed and why it works, and gives us tools to interpret the good science from the bad. Intelligent and entertaining, Tribal Science reveals a compelling paradox that lies at the very heart of science and our everyday lives.

Sex Science and Morality in China

Sex Science and Morality in China


After decades of near silence on the matter, sex is being talked about in China. But what is being said? Who is allowed to speak? And whose purposes are being served? This ground-breaking book takes a critical look at how sex in China is thought and talked about. Drawing on the work of the country’s foremost sex experts, and years of research in the field, it gives an overview of the sexual landscape in China today. Including new material on transsexuals, fetishism, sex aids and pornography, the book shows that the dominant ways of thinking about sex are neither innocent nor inconsequential, and that amid catalogues of prescriptions linking self-management to the collective good, people are making decisions about how to live their sexual lives. The most lively and accessible critique of sexual discourse, this book will be essential reading for scholars in Chinese studies, cultural studies and sexuality and gender studies.

Science Proves That Hugs Can Boost Your Immune System

We know that hugs make us feel warm and fuzzy inside. And this feeling, it turns out, could actually ward off stress and protect the immune system, according to new research from Carnegie Mellon University.

It’s a well-known fact that stress can weaken the immune system. In this study, the researchers sought to determine whether hugs — like social support more broadly — could protect individuals from the increased susceptibility to illness brought on by the particular stress that comes with interpersonal conflict.

“We know that people experiencing ongoing conflicts with others are less able to fight off cold viruses. We also know that people who report having social support are partly protected from the effects of stress on psychological states, such as depression and anxiety,” the study’s lead author, psychologist Dr. Sheldon Cohen, said in a statement. “We tested whether perceptions of social support are equally effective in protecting us from stress-induced susceptibility to infection and also whether receiving hugs might partially account for those feelings of support and themselves protect a person against infection.”

In the experiment, over 400 healthy adults who filled out a questionnaire about their perceived social support and also participated in a nightly phone interview for two weeks. They were asked about the frequency that they engaged in interpersonal conflict and received hugs that day.

Then, the researchers exposed the participants to a common cold virus, and monitored them to assess signs of infection. They found that both perceived social support and more frequent hugs reduced the risk of infection associated with experiencing interpersonal conflict. Regardless of whether or not they experienced social conflicts, infected participants with greater perceived social support and more frequent hugs had less severe illness symptoms.

“This suggests that being hugged by a trusted person may act as an effective means of conveying support and that increasing the frequency of hugs might be an effective means of reducing the deleterious effects of stress,” Cohen said. “The apparent protective effect of hugs may be attributable to the physical contact itself or to hugging being a behavioral indicator of support and intimacy… Either way, those who receive more hugs are somewhat more protected from infection.”

Art, Science And Style Converge In Incredible Bacteria-Laced Fabric Art

Are you looking for that little je ne sais quois to spruce up your winter wardrobe? How about taking a hint from your middle school biology class and incorporating some bacterial colonies into your look?

But truly, this project is incredible. Experimental bio-design firm Studio Natsai Audrey has crafted a line of silk scarves, mixing principles of biology, craft and design, and offering a potential solution to the rampant pollution in the textile industry. It’s called “The Fold” and is the brainchild of studio founder Natsai Audrey Chieza.

the fold

“Can biological systems co-author with design and craft to generate new technologies that offer a sustainable material paradigm?” This was the challenge Chieza set out to solve as she combined art, science and style in a radical new way. She began by folding each scarf in an origami-like pattern until it fits inside a petri dish, then introducing a non-pathogenic bacteria called Streptomyces to produce the pigment.

The results are an array of stunning mirrored prints that morph and shift as pigment secreted by bacteria diffuses through layers of inoculated silk habotai,” reads a statement from project’s website. “Long after the peak of microbial activity is reached, a fine silk palimpsest serves as a record of what it was to live, then die, in seven days.”

The scarves are just the beginning. Chieza hopes to eventually create a whole collection of garments, each documenting the life cycle of a different bacterial colony. The innovative idea will hopefully bring us one step closer to a future bio-revolution, in which design and science work hand-in-hand to yield environmentally friendly (and oh-so beautiful) results. Basically, bacteria is all the rage this season.

Science Explains Why Kids Are Terrible At Sharing

When we were kids, sharing our snacks or toys was about as appealing as sitting in time out. We were hardly willing to give up our most prized possessions to our peers right away — and now neuroscience might be able to explain why.

According to a new study, it takes more of a controlled thought process for kids to be generous. While children have an immediate, emotional response in the brain when they witness positive or negative behavior, deciding to share something comes after evaluating the whole picture and reflecting on the morality of those actions.

“Moral evaluation in preschool children, similar to adults, is complex and constructed from both emotion and cognition,” study author Jean Decety said in a statement. “However, we found that only differences in neural markers of the latter predict actual generosity.”

Researchers from the University of Chicago recorded brain activity of children ages 3 to 5 while they viewed helpful and harmful scenarios, and then had to make a decision on how to treat another child they didn’t know.

The children were gifted 10 stickers, then were told the next child who came into the room wouldn’t be given any stickers. Researchers then asked if they wanted to give any of their stickers to the other child. The kids shared a little under two of their allotted 10 stickers on average.

The research suggests that the children’s judgments were influenced immediately by the harmful and helpful scenes they were shown, but they only chose to be generous after thoughtful processing of those scenes. The study is the first one of its kind to link immediate moral evaluations to actual moral behavior and the specific markers where it happens in the brain, researchers say.

In a time of the year where acts of altruism are so prevalent, the study authors suggest the findings could help parents who are looking to help instill the values of giving in their kids. Previous research also shows that giving back can have a host of health benefits, including lower stress, a happier disposition and even increased longevity.

The findings were published in the journal Current Biology.

Medicine, Science, and Merck

Medicine, Science, and Merck


In Medicine, Science, and Merck, the authors trace the careers of a son of Greek immigrants as he mastered three professions and ultimately became the Chief Executive Officer of America’s most admired corporation – the multinational, pharmaceutical giant, Merck & Co, Inc. As the authors show, there was hope even for a wise-cracking kid living through the hard times of the 1930s. Education brought out the scholar in Roy Vagelos, who left his family’s small restaurant to attend the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia’s Medical School, and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. At NIH, he mastered biochemistry; at Washington University he became a distinguished science administrator; and at Merck, he headed the pharmaceutical industry’s most innovative laboratory and then became its CEO. Throughout, he never lost touch with his family values, his intense desire to help others, or his faith in the partnership principle and the competition that makes it work.

Dear Medical Science: What’s Taking You So Long?

When I was a little kid, I had a lot of faith in you guys. Maybe I watched too many Star Trek episodes, but I figured by now — 50 years later — you’d have invented some miracle laser-like gizmo that could cure everything. The patient would lie down on a diagnostic bio-bed. Then the doctor would wave the gizmo over the illness-ridden body and — presto! — the affliction would magically vanish.

Where’s the gizmo, guys? We want the gizmo. Okay, forget the gizmo. I’ll settle for a Miracle Pill that does the same thing.

For decades we’ve been throwing money at you and, I hate to say it, I was kind of hoping for something more by now. Okay, I’m an impatient patient. Sue me.

That’s not to say you haven’t made some amazing advances. You’ve given us meds for cholesterol, ED, depression, AIDS, blood pressure and a host of other ailments; there are bionic hands, heart transplants, new vaccines, nerve regrowth, facial reconstruction, MRIs, laparoscopy and a whole lot more.

But, to cite a few examples, you still can’t cure Alzheimer’s; cancer, in all it’s many delightful forms, still mystifies you; you haven’t put the kibosh on multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, diabetes or heart disease; hell, you haven’t even rid the planet of hemorrhoids yet.

Guys, we don’t want to go through all that suffering anymore. We’re sick of getting sick. It’s the 21st Century. Stem cells were discovered in 1978. You promised us limitless possibilities, yet here we are, 36 years later, still twiddling our thumbs.

Here’s how primitive we still are: Kidney patients still have to be hooked up to washing machines; basal cell carcinomas still have to be dug out by hand; skulls still have to be drilled to get to brain tumors; casts are still used for broken limbs; we still repair wounds with thread or staples; tooth extractions still require a set of pliers; amputations still involve saws; hoses explore our digestive systems; we still use catheters (the last major improvement was the flexible catheter, invented by Benjamin Franklin in 1752, hello.)

Let’s take cancer. If you are unlucky enough to get pancreatic, ovarian or lung cancer, you can pretty much put a down payment on a tombstone. After decades of research, here’s what we have in the arsenal: surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

Not very impressive guys. Surgery is still horrible no matter how you… um… cut it; radiation is… well… radiation. Then there’s the wonder of chemotherapy (invented in the 1940s.) Good job there, fellas. Poison the victim and hope that the cancer succumbs and the patient survives. What a breakthrough. Remember the old medical practice of bleeding patients to cure them of just about everything? Today, we ridicule that boneheaded procedure as hopelessly medieval. Ha ha. Guess what? A hundred years from now, scientists will get a huge guffaw out of chemo.

Where are the Pasteurs, Flemings and Salks of yesteryear? If it had taken the estimable Dr. Salk as long as it takes you, half the world’s population would still think the iron lung is a marvel of ingenuity.

Here’s what really bothers me: Everyday we read about your latest earthshattering breakthroughs. “Scientists Build Liver Out of Stem Cells!” “Scientists Solve Mystery of Aging!” “Researchers Discover New Drug that Shrinks Tumors!” Wow, I say excitedly. Finally.

Then what happens? Nothing. It seems as if none of these exciting new medical miracles ever make it from the lab to the hospital. They just seem to… disappear. We never hear about them again. What happened? Was it all just optimism? Is there a need to publish something to justify the investment? Is the FDA dragging its feet? Is Big Pharma quashing them? Are the rats faking it? What?

All I know is that my internist did not offer me a new liver the last time I saw him, not that I need one. Yet.

How To Tell The Difference Between ‘In Like’ And ‘In Love,’ According To Science

We all know there’s a difference between being “in like” with someone and being “in love,” but it’s often hard to tell how the other person feels about you.

A new study about love and lust, recently published in Psychological Science, discovered how to tell if a person is feeling the romantic, long-term will-you-marry-me kind of love or the more common I-just-want-to-have-sex-with-you sexual lust.

It turns out, the answer lies in how they look at you.

Researchers from the University of Chicago conducted two studies on a group of heterosexual undergrads. In the first study, participants looked at a set of 120 photographs of couples and were asked if the photos elicited feelings of romantic love or sexual desire. Sexual desire was defined as an increase in sexual thoughts and fantasies toward a target, whereas love was defined as a sentimental and tender state that made participants long for a union.

Afterwards, the participants were shown the same photographs and asked simply to look at them and think about their feelings. While students were gazing at the photographs, their eye movements were tracked and recorded to determine where on the photo they fixated most and for how long.

In the second study, participants were given 80 photographs of individuals of the opposite sex and asked if they could possibly feel love toward or lust toward them. Again, their eye movements were tracked.

At the end of both studies, the results were pretty clear: “Subjects were more likely to fixate on the face when making decisions about romantic love,” the researchers wrote. “Judgments that involved lust elicited more eye fixations toward the body.”

Indeed, as the authors point out, “Mutual eye gaze is one of the most reliable markers of love between couples.”

So if your S.O. spends more time looking at your face than looking at your butt, odds are good that he or she is in it for the long haul.

Interface Oral Health Science 2007


The Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry has proposed Interface Oral Health Science as the main theme of next-generation dental research since 2002. That theme is based on the new concept that healthy oral function is provided by biological and biomechanical harmony among three systems: oral tissues, parasites, and biomaterials, and that oral diseases are interpreted as ‘interface diseases’ caused by disruption of the intact interfaces among those systems. The Second International Symposium was organized to promote advances in dental research and to activate interdisciplinary research with related fields by putting interface oral health science into practice. Researchers at the global forefront of the field participated in the symposium, the contents of which are summarized in this book. Also included are the text of a lecture by the president of Tohoku University, an educational lecture by the vice-dean of King’s College London Dental Institute, the contents of three symposia and more than 70 poster presentations.

Wild Science

Wild Science


Wild Science investigates the world-wide boom in ‘health culture’. While self-help health books and medical dramas are popular around the globe, we are bombarded with daily media images of DNA research, and news reports about cloning, the fight against AIDS, cancer and depression. With popular culture now the principal means through which the non-scientific population encounters science why do certain images of science get promoted above others? Contributors examine the public meanings of science, revealing the frictions and contradictions within popular representations of what medicine can and should do. Focusing on the visual culture of medicine, they show how representations of science have a direct impact on popular perceptions of the limits of science, and ultimately on health education, funding and research, and examine the belief that media literacy in popular representations of medicine makes an ethical public discourse on the aims of science possible. With sections addressing the new visual technologies which make the human body into a virtual territory, the diagnostic and medical practices centered around women’s bodies, and popular debates around genetics and identity, Wild Science argues that science is a practice bound in values and institutions, and argues for a responsible engagement with the public cultures of science and health.

Waistland: The (R)Evolutionary Science Behind Our Weight and Fitness Crisis


In the modern jungle of burgers, couches, and remote controls, obesity is an enormous and growing epidemic. Weight-loss books and diet gurus urge us to "listen to our bodies," but our instincts are designed for the African savannah, not food courts. The sugary and fatty foods that we, as hunter-gatherers, are programmed to forage used to be hard to come by. Now they’re as close as the vending machine down the hall. Radical changes are necessary and, fortunately, are biologically easier than small or gradual changes in diet. Barrett tells us how to reprogram our bodies, break food addictions, and ignore our attraction to "supernormal stimuli"-artificial creations that appeal to our instincts more than the natural objects they mimic. Barrett delves into scientific research-from animal ethology to evolution-to show the disastrous direction in which our instincts have led us, and how, using our intellect, we can get back on course.
