  1. Is the Large Hadron Collider being sabotaged by it’s future self? Absolutely loony (but perhaps plausible).

  2. For all those who complain about the waste problem associated with nuclear energy you are barking up the wrong power plant, as coal seems to produce more of it in the long runMore damning of coal with this piece about water quality and coal power production.

  3. In case you had the misguided belief that language is boring (it’s not btw), a study found that dyslexia in English and Chinese are two different conditions.

  4. The  neuro-philosopher-cum-sous-chef Jonah Lehrer has a great piece on cooking at home.

  5. David Brooks talks about the emergence (more like explosion) of up-and-coming-thirty-somethings studying cognitive social neuro-science.
