Upper Body Strength Key Factor In Men’s Bodily Attractiveness

Study results showed that it was possible to almost perfectly predict how attractive a man’s body is from three things: how physically strong he looks, how tall he is, and how lean he is. The effect of strength was so large that none of the 150 women in the study preferred weak men.

Artificial Intelligence and Seeing “Double Numbers” – Is There a Connection?

Artificial Intelligence and Seeing “Double Numbers” – Is There a Connection?

How artificial intelligence and the simulation theory may explain the uptick in seeing double digits For many, it all started with the 11’s (i.e. 11:11 on the clock) and now it’s burgeoned well beyond the pair of ones to include a whole range of double digits (22, 333, 44 and so on.). So what’s going on? […]

An Object That Just Passed Earth Was So Strange Scientists Are Testing It for Alien Life

The asteroid, named ‘Oumuamua, was the first object from another star system to be detected by the human race and stunned scientists with its shape — it is ten times longer than it is wide — and its color, a dark red hue caused by millions of years of exposure to radiation. The Breakthrough Listen initiative will spend $100 million to test ‘Oumuamua for radio signals. Scientists say that though it is highly unlikely, the unusual characteristics of the asteroid fit the bill of a giant interstellar probe or spaceship.

Rock Art Discovered Showing Humans Hunting with Dogs on Leashes 9,000 Years Ago

The rock art scenes discovered by the Max Planck researchers provide a first-ever insight into life with dogs in early human history. Men are shown with bows and arrows shooting at gazelles, antelopes, lions and leopards which are contained by dogs. Other images show how dogs hunt down small game, like gazelles and ibexes, by biting them.

New Robots Imagine Future Actions To Figure Out How To Manipulate Objects They’ve Never Encountered Before

Using this technology, called visual foresight, the robots can predict what their cameras will see if they perform a particular sequence of movements. In the future, this technology could help self-driving cars anticipate future events on the road and produce more intelligent robotic assistants in homes, but the initial prototype focuses on learning simple manual skills entirely from autonomous play.

Neuroscientists Discover a Unique Link Between Breathing and The Brain

Scientists found that “volitional control and awareness of breathing engage distinct but overlapping brain circuits.” What does this mean? Basically, when we voluntarily control the breath, even if we just focus on the breath, we create additional access and synchronicity between different parts of the brain.

Why Scientific Proof is a Myth

We simply cannot observe and measure everything, so how does that impact what we’ve discovered about everything else we are measuring? There are so many variants to consider when trying to prove anything. We can speculate all we want, but how can we ever prove anything without a shadow of a doubt?

Science Shows What You Think Will Make You Happy Probably Won’t

Science Shows What You Think Will Make You Happy Probably Won’t

Science says there’s a good chance you don’t know what really makes you happy. When estimating our happiness, we humans tend to engage in something called “impact bias” where we overestimate the actual effect that different outcomes will have on our lives.

When if they think they’d be happier winning the lottery or becoming paraplegic, most people quite understandably respond that they’d be happier with all that money and no handicap.

Still, real life statistics show that one year after winning the lottery or losing the use of their lower body, people in both these groups are equally happy. Yes, really, EQUALLY.

Plastic Waste Becomes Public Furniture

Print Your City is a new organization in Amsterdam that has developed a way to take in tons of plastic waste and recycle it into public furniture, and potentially other useful objects using 3D printing. This poses a solution to the plastic waste strangling the oceans and planet. This technology offers hope to resolve one of the worst problems now facing the human race.

Bali’s Mount Agung Spews Smoke and Ash as Eruption Fears Remain

Mount Agung on the resort island of Bali, which has been rumbling in recent months, erupted on Tuesday afternoon, the nation’s disaster mitigation agency said. The height of the smoke reached more than 700 meters from the peak of the mountain. The alert level for the rumbling volcano that had forced more than 100,000 to flee was lowered late last month, though authorities said there was still a chance it could erupt.

As Support Grows for Ban on Killer Robots, Viral ‘Slaughterbots’ Video Warns of Threat to Humans

As support grew last week for a ban on killer robots during the first formal United Nations talks about imposing limits on lethal autonomous weapons systems, artificial intelligence experts and advocacy groups released a viral video titled “Slaughterbots” depicting what a future could look like with small and affordable drones that murder targets without any meaningful human control.
