Growing new connections in your brain is more essential to learning than strengthening established connections. You may know how to be a tax lawyer because you've spent years strengthening your old tax law connections, but these are utterly useless when you take up ballroom dancing to find yourself a mate.

A lot of people are now scared of BMPEA because there are not any human studies. They say that there are only a handful of preclinical studies. Gee, thanks for saying that the research done by 99% of biomedical scientists is bogus. A recent study suggests that, based on recommended servings, users of certain supplements that contain BMPEA would take about 1 mg/kg of BMPEA .

Space is always on the mind of a veteran NASA astronaut Brian Duffy. The key figure in an aerospace company Orbital ATK and a Space Shuttle commander is extremely keen on flying to space again.

The enthusiasm emanating from him for the future journeys beyond Earth, which we all patiently wait for, is heartily thrilling. In an interview with me, Duffy talks his successful astronaut career, post-NASA endeavors and his love for space.

Flakka - "gravel" - is all the rage with amateur druggies in Florida and Texas and wherever else people who have watched a lot of "Breaking Bad" do home chemistry. It is made from alpha-PVP, which is a chemical cousin of cathinone, found in bath salts.

Chinese Chang’e 3 spacecraft on Dec. 14, 2013 became the first probe to soft land on the Moon since the Soviet Union's Luna 24 in 1976.
With over 40 years using and manipulating gravity for my small arts and crafts business I have discovered the answers to some of the most pressing questions in cosmology - the nature of dark energy and dark matter.

As you may know, dark matter is not just present in remote galactic clusters, it is here on earth. I was puzzled why only 6 percent of my arts and crafts were actual detectable matter but I was puzzled over how to identify the missing physics that would take my crafting to the next level.

In my role as lead investigator at the Science of People laboratory complex, people often ask me if those 'social skills hacks' they read about are real.

Well, I am here to tell you they are, and I put together a video with my favorite one, showing how you can use the awesome power of science to make yourself more memorable to people you will meet in elevators or business meetings or even science conferences.

You can try this experiment using materials commonly found in homes and neighborhoods everywhere, it doesn't involve complex fMRI scans, expensive lab equipment or monkeys.
Recently two Transgender women were shot to death because they made a wrong turn and did not listen to or possibly did not understand the commands of the guards at the gate of the NSA.*  That was unfortunate.  The tragedy is in a day and age where the non PC complain that people are too PC and the PC proclaim that they are sensitive major media continue to identify those two as "men dressed as women".  With the notable exception of Reuters, all other media did not even mention the chance they were trans.

The brakes on your car, the lift in the mechanics shop and standard construction machinery such as front end loaders,  back hoes, and bull dozers all require hydraulics instrumentation to perform their function.  In addition to this, all sorts of industrial cutters, presses, folders and a substantial amount of manufacturing machinery depend on hydraulics.  Hydraulic technology is pretty important to our standard of living seeing as how we depend on it in so many ways to per
