Here’s A List Of The Darkest, Strangest Scientific Paper Titles Of All Time

Here’s A List Of The Darkest, Strangest Scientific Paper Titles Of All Time
Science is often accused of being quite dry in terms of its language. This makes sense, to be fair – clear text without any purple prose is needed to convey the factual information as precisely and as understandable as possible. Every now and then, however, researchers rebel, and nowhere is this more evident than in the titles of their research papers. Like a headline for an online article, papers sometimes have eye-catching turns of phrase inserted into them. On

Im Slowly Learning The Only Thing I Can Change Is Myself

Im Slowly Learning The Only Thing I Can Change Is Myself
@NickBulanovv I’m slowly learning that I can’t really change other people. You can’t convince someone to see your point of view if they don’t want to see it. You can’t save them or fix them or expect them to do things your way if they don’t want to change. You can’t take back something somebody else said or did. You can’t make them eat their own words and erase their actions. People will be who they are until they

The 7 Psychotic Things Your Favorite Celebs Do To Stay Healthy

The 7 Psychotic Things Your Favorite Celebs Do To Stay Healthy
Look, I’ve tried a lot of bizarre diets and weird beauty hacks in my day. From Paleo, to Atkins, to low-carb to high-carb to Keto to vegan to juicing to brothing to counting calories and exercising, I’ve done it all, and most betches can say the same. Can you blame us? We’re bored and practically willing to do anything to avoid regular exercise and a well-balanced diet. With that being said, there are certain lines we just won’t cross.

5 Foods You Never Should Have Cut Out Of Your Diet

5 Foods You Never Should Have Cut Out Of Your Diet
Some food myths were made up decades ago, and yet we still can’t seem to shake them. Like, sometimes we’ll take any tips we can get, but we don’t stop to realize this advice was literally created during the same time that women were advised not to exercise because it would make them less feminine. It’s 2017, and we’re *starting* to know better. I mean, if we can order bottles of tequila on an app and convince our boyfriends

This Is How Youll Fall In Love In 2018, Based On Your Birth Month
Marcelo Matarazzo January Your ambition and your strong work ethic are two of your best characteristics, but the way you’ll fall in love in 2018 is by meeting someone who reminds you that there is so much life to be lived  of work. They’ll be 100% supportive of your career and your goals, and will only cheer you on rather than getting in your way – but they will also remind you that it’s important to look up from

Breathing in Delhi air equivalent to smoking 44 cigarettes a day
New Delhi (CNN)It was early on Tuesday morning when residents in the Indian capital of Delhi first began to notice the thick white haze that had descended across the city.On Tuesday afternoon, city chiefs closed all public and private schools, requesting instead that the city's tens of thousands of school-aged children remain indoors; on Wednesday, they banned incoming trucks and halted civil construction projects; while on Thursday, local media suggested the government would again implement a temporary measure to

Natural Cycles gets $30M for its EU-certified digital contraception

Natural Cycles gets $30M for its EU-certified digital contraception
Contraception can be a charged topic for many reasons. It’s highly personal, of course. Frequently it’s political. And the stakes, should your method of choice fail, are obviously very high indeed. Which perhaps explains why there hasn’t been a whole lot of innovation in the space — unless you count the prospect of a male pill which nonetheless still hasn’t arrived on the market. None of these challenges have deterred European startup Natural Cycles from pushing to establish what it bills as

Why Americans don’t give a damn about mass shootings

Why Americans don’t give a damn about mass shootings
(CNN)One month ago, the worst mass shooting in US history took place at a country music concert in Las Vegas. Fifty-eight people were killed and more than 500 people injured. Bill O'Reilly boiled the massacre down to six words: "This is the price of freedom." In America, we are free to stockpile weapons. We are free to order ammo online. We are free to outfit our guns with bump stocks, like the Vegas shooter did. This is the price

Perhaps just two days later — what happened in Sutherland Springs will be a fading memory (where is Sutherland Springs, again?). We'll have mostly forgotten those who lost their lives and why they aren't here anymore. We won't remember that the youngest victim was 18 months old. Or that the oldest was 71. Or that an

The Best New TV Shows & Movies To Binge On Netflix This November
Welp, it’s November. Pretty soon we’ll be saying, “Peace out,” to fall and doing everything we can to brace ourselves for the upcoming winter and holiday season. Two things we can never actually prepare enough for. We’ll all accept the fact that going into hibernation means gaining at least three pounds from all of the family dinners and wine we’ll be drowning in to defrost our bodies and ice cold hearts. ‘Tis finally full-on “cuffing season.” It’ll soon be

New Zealand Songbird Attacks Other Males That Sing Better Than Itself

New Zealand Songbird Attacks Other Males That Sing Better Than Itself
No one likes a show-off, not least the male tui bird from New Zealand. It has recently been found that the males cannot cope with others who outdo them in the singing department, and so act more aggressively by getting all up in their face and upping their musical game. Most of the time male birds sing for one of two reasons, either to attract a mate or to keep other fellas off their patch. Living in forests that

Scientists Replace 80 Percent Of Boy’s Skin With Epidermis Grown In Lab, Saving His Life
A boy with untreatable wounds has had 80 percent of his skin replaced with a genetically modified epidermis in an attempt to save his life. The 7-year-old boy has a life-threatening genetic disorder that has caused untreatable and infected wounds all over his body. Before the surgery to replace it, the Syrian boy, named only as Hassan, had lost around 80 percent of his skin to the disorder. In 2015, he was admitted to a children's hospital in Germany where

Pollution Kills An Astonishing Nine MILLION People Every Year

Pollution Kills An Astonishing Nine MILLION People Every Year
Pollution is killing up to 9 million people every single year across the planet. As grimly expected, most of these deaths – 92 percent – are in middle-to-low income countries. This makes the unnatural phenomenon, which is responsible for one-in-6 deaths worldwide, more deadly than anything else, including natural disasters, famine, and war. Although drinking water contamination was the second most common cause of death, air pollution is by far and away the most serious issue: it accounted for
