This article offers tips for women on how to stop the cycle of being 'manterrupted' - an unnecessary interruption of a woman by a man - or 'bropropriated' - the taking of a woman's idea and taking credit for it -  in the workplace. [ more]

People Are More Likely to Cheat at the End

Daniel Yudkin, Scientific American, September 15, 2015

Life, for better or worse, is full of endings. We finish school, get a new job, sell a home, break off a relationship. Knowing that a phase is soon coming to an end can elicit the best in us, as we try to make amends for errors past and avoid last-minute regrets. But while the sense of an ending can draw out people's finest selves, it can also, new psychological research suggests, bring out their darker side.

‘Syria is emptying’

Liz Sly, The Washington Post, September 14, 2015

A new exodus of Syrians is fueling the extraordinary flow of migrants and refugees to Europe, as Syria's four-year-old war becomes the driving force behind the greatest migration of people to the continent since the Second World War. The continued surge through Europe prompted Hungary, Austria and Slovakia to tighten border controls Monday, a day after Germany projected that in excess of a million people could arrive by year's end and began to impose restrictions on those entering the country. How many more Syrians could be on the way is impossible to know, but as the flow continues, their number is rising.

The Neuroscience of Immortality

Amy Harmon, The New York Times, September 12, 2015

Some neuroscientists believe it may be possible, within a century or so, for our minds to continue to function after death — in a computer or some other kind of simulation. Others say it's theoretically impossible, or impossibly far off in the future. A lot of pieces have to fall into place before we can even begin to start thinking about testing the idea. But new high-tech efforts to understand the brain are also generating methods that make those pieces seem, if not exactly imminent, then at least a bit more plausible. [ more]

High-Tech Lights to Help Baby Sleep, or Students Stay Alert

Diane Cardwell, The New York Times, September 11, 2015

Scientists have understood for years that different levels and colors of light can have powerful biological effects on humans. But that concept has been applied only with expensive bulbs — costing as much as $300,000 — for specialty applications like mimicking the 24-hour cycle for astronauts or treating jaundice in newborns. Now, with lighting technology, especially LEDs, becoming more sophisticated and less expensive, companies are developing so-called biological lighting for ordinary consumers.

Notre Dame President Stands Firm Amid Shifts in College Athletics

Dan Barry, The New York Times, September 10, 2015

With the advent of another football season, the accusations of student-athlete exploitation continue to unnerve higher education — the growing demand that student-athletes share in the revenue they generate; the calls for N.C.A.A. reform; the push for unionization; academic fraud, sexual assaults, seamy cover-ups. It's that 1932 Marx Brothers movie about college football, "Horse Feathers," only without the laughs. Nowhere are these questions of morality and justice more pressing than at Notre Dame, an academic powerhouse with a football emphasis — or a football powerhouse with an academic emphasis.

Discriminating against women keeps countries poorer

Sri Mulyani Indrawati, LinkedIn, September 10, 2015

In 100 countries around the world, women are barred from doing certain work solely because they are women. More than 150 countries have at least one law that is discriminatory towards women. And only 18 countries are free of any law disadvantaging women. This is just the tip of the iceberg of legal barriers for women to achieve their full economic potential. [ more]
