Cracking the Gender Gap: Why 'Genius' Fields Tend To Snub Women
Thu Jan 15, 2015
In reply to:cork124312491 #2 I wonder whether our attitudes toward introversion play into this. If a boy is introverted, he is treated as thoughtful by adults, and largely left alone by most of his peers. If a girl is introverted, it's considered unnatural, and her peers are encouraged t …
Power of Prayer: What Happens to Your Brain When You Pray?
Tue Dec 23, 2014
In reply to: some sanity please #3 Prayer is how many Christians express their fervently held belief that they would be better at running the universe than their God is. I don't see how any prayers, aside from those giving thanks, are not considered blasphemy. If your God is perfect, and …
Jeb Bush: GOP Nominee Should Be Willing to 'Lose the Primary to Win the General''"
Mon Dec 1, 2014
The fact that he raises his granddaughter's Texas citizenship to the same level as being a citizen of the U.S., Canada or Iran suggests to me that he should, perhaps, run for president of Texas, rather than the U.S.
For College-Bound Kids, It's a Difficult Question: Desktop or Laptop?
Fri Aug 1, 2014
One unmentioned option: buy a laptop, but get a full sized monitor, keyboard and external hard drive that can be plugged into it at the desk. Solves most of the problems. Theft is still a problem on campuses, But one trick is to personalize your case "with extreme predjudice". Don' …
Lady in red, get away from my man: Women see red when other women wear it
Fri Jul 11, 2014
While this may be true, the experiment isn't really useful. Wearing red may be a visual, rather than a verbal communication, but it's hardly a subconscious symbol. Red is explicitly a symbol of sexuality in our culture, so interpreting an experiment like this to mean that the color has s …
Reading Rainbow 'crushed' record for most Kickstarter backers
Mon Jun 30, 2014
Seth McFarlane keeps surprising and impressing me. Regardless of whether he's a good artist (I'm not in his target audience, I've decided), he seems like a good man, and that's more important.
NRA: Stalkers deserve guns, too
Thu Jun 26, 2014
In reply to: Jason Swartz #4.3 They don't protect the Constitution, only the Second Amendment. The Constitution was never a perfect document, hence the amendments. By refusing to allow consideration of any position other than an absolute right to the possession of instruments of de …
Is New York the next battleground over teacher tenure?
Tue Jun 24, 2014
Tenure is problematic, but so is the lack of protection teachers have when it is not available. Teaching what is currently, locally, politically correct may not provide the best education for a child, whether it's intelligent design in Texas, or fear of vaccinations in California. A teac …
One year after Shelby County ruling, voting rights are in danger
Mon Jun 23, 2014
At present, our elections are far more skewed by people who are citizens whose votes are stymied, than by people voting who should not be, according to reports. It's foolish to work on the less pressing issue first, but, I will admit that, if everything else were equal, there would be a reason to co …
Texas Democrats: Republican policy platform is 'disgusting'
Thu Jun 19, 2014
In reply to: chris schene #17.28 Granted, we have to take a third or fourth generation translation of the Apostle's word on what Jesus said to them privately. And, of course, nobody wrote down for another thirty to forty years. I'm sure there's no way anyone along the way might have misr …
