In what can really only be described as a conference for people nobody likes, Sepp Blatter and Vladimir Putin hung out recently to discuss slave labor (probably), embezzlement (definitely) and the 2018 FIFA World Cup (unfortunately) which will be held in Russia.
By ridiculing vampires, or assuming they are all like those "Twilight" movies, society is making real vampires afraid to come out of the coffin, according to social workers.

Real vampires are different than lifestyle vampires, like goths, otherkin, furries and various BDSM identities, say the authors. Think of it like the difference between people with Celiac disease and rich, white women who adapted going gluten-free as a new diet - except Celiac disease is real and there are no real vampires.

Today is the seventy-fifth anniversary of one of the most famous speeches given by Winston Churchill:

We shall fight on the beaches

of which the best remembered words are

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, ...
"La belle Hélène" is a beautiful operetta by Jacques Offenbach. Now for the first time it has been translated and performed in Greek in Athens, by a group of very talented singers under the artistic direction of Panagiotis Adam. I saw "Η Ωράια Ελένη" yesterday at the Olvio theatre in Athens, and I enjoyed it a whole lot. 

The story unfolds as Eleni, the wife of Sparta's king Menelaos, lives in a world where men only concern with warfare and neglect love. As Paris, the prince of Troy, arrives disguised as a sheperd, and catches her attention. Eleni's flirt with Paris is discovered by Menelaos, but the two manage to escape together.

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.
BeSlyfMRI Brain Training program, created by Dr. B. Raneded out of California State University, Las Flores, has successfully demonstrated that mindfulness can clear thetans better than Scientology. Not only can fMRI answer what is really going on in a man's head, it can also verify that men can and do think of absolutely nothing when hearing their wives speak, validating suspicions held by women everywhere.
The Anti-Proton Collider experiment of the New Jersey Super Collider (NJSC) announced today that we may not be alone in the universe.
There are sometimes complaints that modern men only prefer one certain female body type, but we should blame evolution and prehistoric influences, according to a new study.

Professor Anthony Ray from the Department of Evolution and Human Behavior at Mack University investigated male mate preferences for female figures. 200 males, ages 17-21 and receiving extra credit in an introductory psychology class at a small liberal arts college, were presented with images of women who had differing lumbar curvature but the same buttock size and vertebral wedging. 

A large majority of the men consistently preferred women whose buttock size and vertebral wedging most closely matched prehistoric ideals on what he calls the "Kardashian Lumbar Curvature Index".
Do you want to know whether or not there are GMOs in your home?

There is increasing concern about GMO safety in our post-agrobacterium world. Recognizing the need for increased consumer empowerment on this issue as well as an unmet need for more GMO transparency, we here at Revolution Bioengineering are developing 'Geemo', a simple, easy to use, plant that can detect GMOs around your home.

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.
