Inmerso en un sentimiento de profundo abandono y repudiado por otras páginas amigas, decido embarcarme en mi propia aventura personal.

Must Watch: Dawkins, Nye, Tyson, and Stephenson Discuss Science and Storytelling

science-junkie:

Highlights include:

  •     Ira Flatow greeting Neil deGrasse Tyson with a fist bump.
  •     Richard Dawkins being Richard Dawkins
  •     Bill Nye being Bill Nye
  •     Starry Night
  •     The importance of educating women in science
  •     Neil deGrasse Tyson flipping out at Lawrence Krauss and Brian Greene about the motivations behind big-budget science
  •     Tyson and Krauss bickering about pretty much anything (there’s a lot the two don’t see eye to eye on)
  •     When you should and shouldn’t respect other people’s opinion
  •     The role of science-/speculative fiction in communicating and understanding science (Dawkins, for one, claims he came to understand information theory through SF. Bill Nye thinks contemporary scifi cifi could stand to return to its days of intense optimism, as characterized by Star Trek.)
  •     And much, much more

Why Your Brain Loves That New Song
When jazz legend John Coltrane first heard Charlie Parker play the saxophone, the music hit him “right between the eyes,” he once said. According to neuroscientists, Coltrane was exactly right. When we hear music that we like, even for the first time, a part of the brain’s reward system is activated, a new study has shown. The region, called the nucleus accumbens, determines how much we value the song—even predicting how much a person is willing to pay for the new track.
