Questions About Cultural Preservation

Is culture preserved by recording it? Sharing it with others? Putting it in museums or workshops for others wanting to retain it or learn from it or adopt deeper parts of it? Is it preserved by leaving it alone, away from public where it can be commercialized into a spectacle? But if you leave it alone, what happens to the details that dissolve as we all gradually evolve away from our distinct tr

Study suggests painkillers taken during pregnancy not a cause of asthma in kids

A study of almost 500,000 women indicates that taking paracetamol or other painkillers during pregnancy is not responsible for increasing the risk of asthma in children. The research, which uses prescription data on painkillers, does support earlier findings that women taking paracetamol during pregnancy are more likely to have children who develop asthma. However, it also suggests that the painki

Why humans struggled to make 'f' and 'v' sounds until farming came along

A new study suggests that the f and v sounds were made easier to pronounce by the change in our diets the invention of farming made possible. The idea isn't a new one, but is only now being taken seriously. Even today, many hunter-gather cultures lack labiodentals in their languages.

Another Non-Victimized View of Appalachia

Hormonal treatment may trigger depression in men with prostate cancer

Men who receive anti-hormonal treatment after having their prostate removed are 80 percent more likely to suffer from depression than men who don't receive this treatment.

This is presented at the European Association of Urology congress in Barcelona.

‘Playing the victim’ is politically vital and morally serious
