    During the season of crowded beaches on Cape Cod, photographer David L. Ryan provides a visual respite of the shoreline during an assignment in a fixed-wing Cessna. Although familiar with shooting from the air, he often flies in helicopters that can fly lower to the ground and provide more stability and control for the photographer. On this summer afternoon, he captured a unique and stunning look from above of where land and sea meet off the town of Chatham. Seals congregate on a sandbar off the coast of Chatham. (David L.

    My son, Harold, is huge into video games and video game culture. He knows more weird and deep-level memes and obscure details than you’ll ever know. Harold has convinced me to take him to the SCG Convention in Texas. To say he’s hyped and excited is to really underplay how he feels about it. As part of this, I’ve encouraged Harold to do as much of the planning and deciding as possible. Harold chose the Aloft hotel chain. Swell by me. He picked it because he loved the videos.

    Online testing is sure to play a large part in the future of Psychology. Using Mechanical Turk or other crowdsourcing sites for research, psychologists can quickly and easily gather data for any study where the responses can be provided online. One concern, however, is that online samples may be less motivated to pay attention to the tasks they are participating in. Not only is nobody watching how they do these online experiments, they whole experience is framed as a work-for-cash gig, so there is pressure to complete any activity as quickly and with as low effort as possible.

    Philosophy professor Quassim Cassam has a piece in Aeon arguing that conspiracy theorists should be understood in terms of the intellectual vices. It is a dead-end, he says, to try to understand the reasons someone gives for believing a conspiracy theory. Consider someone called Oliver who believes that 9/11 was an inside job: Usually, when philosophers try to explain why someone believes things (weird or otherwise), they focus on that person’s reasons rather than their character traits. On this view, the way to explain why Oliver believes that 9/11 was an inside job is to identify his…

Some seniors could be at risk of problems caused interactions between drugs.

  • Microsoft Has A Brand New Middle Finger With Your Name On It

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:09 pm
     Today, Windows 10 met the world with much fanfare. There is a ton of new features, apps and more articles about it than you can shake a stick at. As a heavy Apple user, I can’t tell you most of what is in Windows 10, but I can tell you that it now has a pretty awesome feature that I would use the shit out of: the middle finger emoji (and some other new ones, too). In my opinion,… Read More

  • 'Failed stars' host powerful auroral displays

    29 Jul 2015 | 11:21 am
    By observing a brown dwarf 20 light-years away using both radio and optical telescopes, astronomers have found that such so-called failed stars host powerful auroras near their magnetic poles -- additional evidence that brown dwarfs are more like giant planets than small stars.
  • Tiny grains of rice hold big promise for greenhouse gas reductions, bioenergy

    29 Jul 2015 | 11:21 am
    Rice is the staple food for more than half of the world's population, but the paddies it's grown in contributes up to 17 percent of global methane emissions -- about 100 million tons a year. Now, with the addition of a single gene, rice can be cultivated to emit virtually no methane, more starch for a richer food source and biomass for energy production.
  • Dense star clusters shown to be binary black hole factories

    29 Jul 2015 | 11:20 am
    The merger of two black holes is one of the most sought-after observations of modern astronomy. The first observatories capable of directly detecting gravitational waves -- ripples in the fabric of spacetime predicted by Albert Einstein -- will begin observing the universe later this year. When these waves rolling in from space are detected on Earth for the first time, astrophysicists predict astronomers will 'hear,' through these waves, five times more colliding black holes than previously expected.

  • Shoring up Tor: Researchers mount successful attacks against popular anonymity network -- and show how to prevent them

    29 Jul 2015 | 11:20 am
    With 2.5 million daily users, the Tor network is the world's most popular system for protecting Internet users' anonymity. Researchers have now demonstrated a vulnerability in Tor's design. They show that an adversary could infer a hidden server's location, or the source of the information reaching a given Tor user, by analyzing the traffic patterns of encrypted data passing through a single computer in the all-volunteer Tor network.

  • The Anxious Cycle: How Children Inherit Our Anxiety

    Elisabeth Corey
    29 Jul 2015 | 3:55 pm
    As a victim of childhood trauma, I have a propensity toward anxiety. It is my reaction of choice when life gets difficult. Having lived with anxiety most of my life, I never knew there was another way to live. I assumed it was normal. I assumed everybody lived this way. I became so used to the way anxiety made me feel, I could function through almost any symptoms. Sometimes, the panic attacks would paralyze me momentarily, but I could work through the quick breathing and the heart racing. At the end of the day, I would be exhausted, as though I had run a marathon, but I could make it work.
  • Sex & Depression: Just Add Fifty Shades of Grey

    Therese J. Borchard
    29 Jul 2015 | 10:25 am
    I’m reading Fifty Shades of Grey. It’s come to that. I’m not very far, just at the elevator scene when they finally kiss. It’s the safest, cheapest, easiest solution so far that I’ve found to my problem: a libido that exists somewhere on the back of a milk carton (missing). This problem isn’t new, of course. I started taking antidepressants (SSRIs, which have sexual side-effects) when I was 19, a sophomore in college, before I was even sexually active. Unfortunately, I have never had sex while not under the inhibiting influence of psychotropic drugs. And, of course, that’s…
  • Spreading Misinformation About ADHD

    John M. Grohol, Psy.D.
    29 Jul 2015 | 7:11 am
    John Rosemond, MS is a nationally-syndicated columnist and parenting expert who’s made a name for himself by promoting a lot of old-fashioned parenting skills. You know, like spanking. I suppose there’s nothing wrong with ignoring research data and science that’s been published in the past few decades (if that’s your thing). But I was a little taken aback by Rosemond’s recent answer to a parent’s concern that her child may have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Rosemond starts his reply off with this outrageous claim: “First and…
  • Pets as Therapy

    Lauren Suval
    29 Jul 2015 | 3:45 am
    Growing up, I’d fantasize about what it would be like to have a dog. Besides the cuteness and fluffiness and opportunity to have an extra playpal, I rationalized that I could “talk” to this canine about my problems. And it would dutifully listen and lick my hand, and snuggle up against me whenever I felt down. I never got the dog (and no parents, this isn’t a guilt-trip article, do not fret), but extensive research certainly illustrates that pets can be therapeutic. In a 2012 article posted on npr.org, scientific research demonstrates the poignant emotional bond between…
