In the 1970s, Scheff studied mainstream psychiatric approaches to mental illness and 'became convinced … that any system of treatment would be incomplete if it were based entirely upon professional therapists'. He began researching more informa
At university, many people talk about their procrastination; they'll joke: 'Have you heard about the procrastination conference? It was postponed ?" again!' In academia and beyond, procrastination is usually seen as a bad habit that many wish
For decades, one classification problem - involving a particular set of infinitely large objects called torsion-free abelian groups (or TFABs) - stymied researchers. This problem was first raised in 1989 by the mathematicians Harvey Friedman and
"The talking drum is unique in that it has a foot in both language and music camps, and because its existence reminds us of the thin boundary between speech and music," says the paper's lead author, Cecilia Durojaye, a musicologist affiliated w
Is all water created equal? Dr Sam explores the benefits and harms of water and what you should do to optimise your health.
In this interview, I speak with Jordan Peterson about masculinity, and how this is a time that males need purpose and guidance. Do you believe masculinity is not toxic? Do you believe we're in the midst of a masculinity crisis?
Study co-author David Clements, an astrophysicist from the Imperial College in London states, "It's not a smoking gun. It's not even gunshot residue on the hands of your prime suspect, but there is a distinct whiff of cordite in the air which may
"The antibiotic we studied is made of about 40 atoms ?" just a little bigger than one sugar molecule," explained lead researcher Dr. Albert Berghuis, Chair of the Department of Biochemistry at McGill University's Faculty of Medicine and Healt
As one might imagine, experts have a dim opinion of the practice with the National Ground Water Association declaring that dowsing is "totally without scientific merit." To that end, hydrogeologist Timothy Parker observed that his work locating wat

However, in a bright turn of events, support staff assured one of the users that SpaceX is working on a software update aimed towards fixing the overheating problems.
In this study, ivermectin docked in region of leucine 91 of the spike protein and at the histidine 378 of the ACE2 receptor. The binding energy and constancy of ivermectin was also measured and found to be sufficient at the ACE2 receptor, proving the
The team calls these powerful cosmic particle accelerators "PeVatrons," although it remains unknown exactly how photons can be accelerated to such intense energies. Their exact sources haven't yet been identified either, but the astronomers say
With a view to one day developing transparent solar cells that can double as windows in homes and other buildings, an international team of scientists has demonstrated a new type of transparent electrode that can function as a key building block.
By turning their tools to perovskite crystals scientists have discovered unexpected behavior that represents an entirely new state of matter, which they say can help drive the development of advanced solar cells and other optical and electronic devic
This is easy observing, the kind that you can share with non-astro family members and friends. Not only will they immediately see the patterns (especially the naked-eye ones), they'll also enjoy hearing any stories you tell about them. So, head o
UCF researchers say they've trapped a sustained explosive detonation, fixed in place, for the first time, channeling its enormous power into thrust in a new oblique wave detonation engine that could propel an aircraft up to 17 times the speed of soun
As soon as a harvest is reaped, a clock begins to tick until oxygen damage and bacteria render a product inedible. Farther Farms' proprietary CO2 pasteurization technology is a simple fix that can prolong packaged foods' shelf life in room temper
Unlike black holes, merging neutron stars produce both gravitational and electromagnetic waves, such as X-rays, radio waves and visible light. While gravitational waves can measure the distance between the neutron-star merger and Earth, electromagnet
Following Kurt Gödel (1906-1978)'s publications on the first- and second incompleteness theorems (1931) and later work on Cantor's continuum hypothesis (1947), Gödel in 1948 turned his attention to cosmology. In an extensive investigation of Ei
, scientists have consistently found that in less than a minute of television viewing time the brain switches from Beta to Alpha state, where the mind is incredibly suggestible and loses its capacity to clearly determine between right and wrong.
The answer came from reading about the famous American inventor Buckminster Fuller, who, Time reported in 1943, spent two years sleeping only two hours a day.
The turbidity makes it harder for a male to prove he's a worthy mate by interfering with females' ability to distinguish subtle gradations of red or orange, Johnsen said. "For any poor fish that has beautiful red coloration on his body, now it
Join Elon Musk and Peter Diamandis as they discuss optimistic views of the future in wide-ranging topics from energy and communications to knowledge and transport, the importance of making humanity an interplanetary species plus the duo will announce
The Krita Yuga was so named because there was but one religion, and all men were saintly: therefore they were not required to perform religious ceremonies… Men neither bought nor sold; there were no poor and no rich; there was no need to labour, be
The research team, led by museum palaeontologist Dr. Danielle Fraser and student Zoe Landry, analysed evidence preserved in teeth and bones from skulls of both ancient (50,000 to 26,000 years ago) and modern gray wolves. All the specimens were coll
"In the Bible, the prophet Jeremiah was sitting together with a few of his friends, and there was a young boy. His name was Abimelech, and Jeremiah said to Abimelech, "Go out of Jerusalem, there is a hill and collect some figs for us." The boy
The research looked at the California Cancer Registry to identify cases of certain cancers in children under six years old, the study explained. They focused on mothers who lived in rural areas and gave birth between 1998 and 2011 to identify 667 cas
It has promising Lawson criterion performance scaling with input geometry resulting in power output that is uniquely scalable across thrust power classes (10s kW to GW levels) at high specific power. It exploits magnetic reconnection as a fast, high-
"This laser variant of the EmDrive is based on theoretical considerations by McCulloch. In numerous experimental set-ups, we have been able to show that both laser resonators and asymmetrical fiber coils do not show any forces that are above normal
